    My family has the most absurd plans for Christmas that will involve nonstop driving all over the place to visit various places and ping-pong the same group of people to multiple people's houses for all sorts of bullshit spanning 2 states and 4 counties in the DC/MD/VA area. Why can't we just pick one place to spend the holiday weekend and stay there? Basically my older brother and his wife live out in the boonies and have manipulated the plans to revolve around their neck of the woods and make it extremely inconvenient for everyone else. :fu::fu::fu::fu::fu::fu::fu::fu::fu:

    Ugh, sounds like a nightmare. Travelling to one place is annoying enough.

    Also, those people that try and get money out of you for a cause on the street. They piss me off.

    Just tell them you're already a donor, with a smile on your face, and keep walking.

    Then they try to get you for MORE money. I am rude as fuck to them. It is so intrusive.

    I think something that is making it worse is that my father died 3 years ago and I tend to cling to our old family tradition of how we did Christmas. Things are changing each year now and it's just really upsetting as Christmas was my Dad's favorite holiday and it was such a special time every year. :(

    It's naive to think things will never evolve but it's really tough.

    So some old hag here decided to reply-all to about 300 people in response to some inane IT issue instead of only to the one initial sender.

    To teach her a lesson, I replied-all to her reply-all with my own response (basically whether or not our pc's had been upgraded). Seems like one guy got the joke and replied-all to my reply-all. And Like a slim, young, funny twat, I gave a final reply-all.

    Now, all manner of fat, old, humorless twats here are replying to me (how nice of them) about how I should watch my reply-all's, including for good measure, the 10th most senior guy at my agency.

    Lesson Learned: Should've stopped with my first reply-all and chuckled at the tip-of-the-hat from the guy that responded to my reply-all.

    :foo:

    Hahaha, I love the idiots who reply all to company or office wide emails. At my old company, we had a business unit wide email that went out to thousands of employees. There was a resultant string of about 15 reply-all emails which prompted the unit to BCC the email group for all future large scale memos. Haha.

    It was a tough one. It was literally like someone had scheduled a new PITA for me to endure for each hour of the morning.

    It's funny you mention that - the antibiotics had just started really working. They took longer than I expected to start really clearing things up (and longer than they have with prior sinus issues), but I've felt better in the last few days than I have in weeks. I suppose I should be grateful that I'm feeling better in that regard, but it's just so :fu: that I have to switch when I was almost done. I'm just glad the new one is a Z-Pak that's a shorter course.

    :laugh: It has confused me a couple of times, too. There's something very disconcerting about reading a post you think is FLMM only to realize it's your words. It's like my joke has betrayed me.

    For all my whining, I feel like I should say something positive. I found out over the weekend I have free tickets to see Georgia in the Outback bowl. I'm going to be in the Tampa area around that time anyway, but, given the way my vacation was planned, I wasn't going to be in town on the day of the game. However, my boss was cool enough to let me take an extra vacation day so I could make it happen. That's pretty :slayer:, and a nice break in an otherwise awful day.

    That's hard. :( I am sorry to hear. It will all behind over soon.


    Funny you should bring this up. I have been wanting to request a "reply all" on SF.
