    The fact that it's holiday time and we're in a recession.

    Seriously...why is it that time stands still on the last day of work before a vacation? I swear I've been in the office for 6 hours already, but it's only been 3.

    Even though I'm not supposed to, I think I'm heading out before 3:30. I'm sure they don't want to pay another hour of my rate and I think my head would explode if I did.

    Having to wear mask, glove liners, gloves, goggles, helmet, base layer, middle layer, heavy winter coat, snow pants, insulated socks, boots, and boot covers just to bicycle 2 miles to work in -24F, then hearing some one complain about +25F.:D

    Just messing with you Phase and letting you know it gets real cold here in Minnesota.

    XML, Web Services, and Web Parts suck. I don't care if they pay the bills, they still suck.

    You know what grinds my gear? The fact that my girlfriend gets over 2000 worth of parking tickets in the past 6 months, but I want to spend 300 on pc parts and get shit for it.

    Sell her car and use the money for PC parts. Both problems fixed!

    Nagging customers, Why can't they just understand that they have caused the delays and that there are 24 hours in a day, and i only have 1 pair of hands.

    The guys threatening to not pay, because he failed to clarify an issue for 3 days, then changed his mind on the 4th day of the project. I hate being a freelancer at times like this :(

    I'm tired of feeling helpless. I'm tired of depending on someone else knowing fully that they suffer because of me. I want to have loads of money so that I can get away with all the phone calls everyday.
