    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.

    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!

    My rant:

    How long does it take to set up a developer box? I'm going on 24 hours!

    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.
