Post your *petty* complaint here

Two petty complaints today.
1) Dealing with the legal system over the name change. Sucks but I won't do it again. FOR ANYONE
2) The second is financial. One of my friends has been chasing me down and I got to talk to him tomorrow. He has been turned down for a loan to pay his rent (too many loans) and probably looking for loan from me. I am concerned because while he is important to me there have been many disagreements with people that I have "loaned" money to and have not seen it returned. He was one of the minor loans. So I am on edge. His rent is kind of substantial. But I can't in good conscience deny him because his need is great and I do have the cash. It's just that I can't be handing out loans while heading into retirement when I won't have any income. Granted retirement is 3 years away but it is coming.

As for name change...I get that mine is ridculous that changed to when got married but no way am I making simpler...basically 4 names (seemed like good idea at time to keep my maiden name (last of the family) as a middle name....not...lol

So sorry about your friend...as I too have loaned people money and so now tend to look at it as a gift - if gets repaid I'm surprised---but if it doesn't I'm not... and if it's too much for first then graciously work with them to try to find other solutions for them....sending *hugs because never easy situation to be in

Ooh, are we making a competition out of this? Cos i feel like i'll be crowned the winner, with my name that's 5 names long. It's thanks to having both my parents' last names, and two inherited middle names. None of them are short names either, so every time i get asked to write down my full name, i ask the person requesting it if they're sure they want to let themselves in for that.

I may actually change my name down to my favourite 3 once the last grandparent on the side that'd get removed from my name goes, although based on what i've read above, it sounds like that may be its own adventure. :D

what sucks about animal orgs and people in my country is that strays MUST be in the WORST condition or be in a life threatening situation before one receives attention and or help.
