    I Have This Friend...

    I have this friend who is never happy about anything. One day his job sucks, the next day his friend upsets him, the next day his cat almost trips him... always something. He's not the only one... countless people talk to me all the time about their "issues", most of them being...

    I've been around some people like that, my whole life. I was someone like that for a few years. I've decided, that its about unhappiness. They can't look around them and see the good. And the saying of misery loves company, is true, in a lot of cases. So, something isn't...

    Fighting Fire With Fire.

    I've lived with some of the worst hypercritical people you can imagine. People that not only looked for things to complain about, but LIKED to complain, even in one case almost admitted to revelling in it. For this reason I don't like whiners and people that...

    This Happens Everywhere, Including On Ep...

    There are people here on EP who do not like some of the topics that are here; some more 'perverted' ones. They complain about them endlessly, but many of the groups have not been deleted by EP, while others with different topics have. (For instance; beast groups are gone, but...

    Yesterday I was at the bank,

    waiting to get some money out. There was a bit of a queue, but it was moving nicely. A woman joined the queue right behind me and proceeded to moan loudly about absolutely everything she could, first to herself and then to someone else waiting. Some delightful snippets of her...

    You Know Them

    I know some people look for things to complain about. My mother is one of those people! And I've had several co-workers who do it, and even a really good friend of mine does it. It's always something. There is no pleasing them. Believe me, I have my moments when I am moody and...

    Behind The Scenes

    I come off as a pretty normal person. I am a full time college student/single mother/waitress. I act normal in front of people but when there are no people around I become someone different. Ever since I can remember I have been able to escape to a different reality. I play...

    The Woman I Work With
