One of the tenets of Festivus is to air your grievances and let your family know how you disappointed them over the past year.

I am disappointed that you did not know this.

As I am disappointed that you have it all backwards. I let my family know how they have diappointed me over the last year.

Ah, so! So, instead of eating things like turkey and ham for the main Festivus meal, I presume everyone eats crow!

In the spirit of Festivus, thank you! Happy Festivus!

Today, we have six remotes, at least three different "source" boxes connected to various "inputs" and each has a different remote procedure to find, tune, locate channels and so on. Just try looking in the newspaper to find out "what's on tv?" What the heck is channel 3-3? And for all the hoopla, digital TV is no better than old tv. Every single show has a different picture size which wastes about 70% of our new "wide screen" TV. Most of it is black. Waaaahhhhhh!
Not to mention the never ending ads running at the bottom of the screen. Todays TV entertainment and its advertisements are too loud , too fast , and therefore too annoying.

After days of intermittent and slow internet from my lousy ISP, they came and installed a bigger dish which apparently, being wider, accumulates all the broadband particles. I remain disappointed and grieving, but I can now post dumb things, just like before. Is today Boxing Day, or did I miss that too?

It's baaaaaack. This thread needs to be put in the Forums Hall of Fame.

My grievance for the year: I'm now officially old. And I haven't retired. Bummer, Dude.

Who's next?

Oh wait, feat of strength: I'm still putting up with work every day.

One issue guy this year.

Jim

The airing of grievances:
- My new smart phone is proving to be smarter than I am.
- I don't have any more camping trips planned in my Airstream until January.
- The guy who is moving into my cubicle when I retire wants me to rearrange the furniture for him before I go.
- The contractors remodeling my apartment complex seem incapable of finishing any project they start.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I feel so much better. Catharsis is soÖ cathartic!

My grievance:

The Golden Years aren't really all that golden (sleepy, busy, body falling apart, memory full with frequent "access denied" messages).

My feat of strength:

Typing.

I never have watched Seinfield, so I really don't know if I did this right and I don't feel any better since I looked at the endless list of things to do today.

Indeed.

Were I running things, I would make retirement a 10-year span you could select to begin at any age between 35 and 55 :-)

Working Up To December 23

Okay, we're in the Festivus season I guess, with the actual Festivus Day on December 23rd I think.

Airing of Grievances:

- extending camp mirrors on my 2005 Suburban completely S*CK! Particularly the passenger side mirror which has a very small field of view even though the mirror is relatively large

- calling Verizon for cell phone changes and customer service also S*CKs because their menu system is so convoluted. The actual customer service reps are fine and helpful but getting to them is quite a challenge.

- Festivus Miracles have fallen by the wayside apparently forgotten and trumped by the more popular Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength.

Feats of Strength:

- picking up the ball mount for my class V hitch and putting into the back of the 2005 4WD Suburban

- going up and down the steps to the attic numerous times for Festivus decorations (maybe this is a grievance)

Festivus Miracles:

- our neighbor brought Festivus bread (cranberry-orange) to our house today.

- the sun rose this morning, and will probably set again this evening. I bet it will happen tomorrow too.

- it's colder outside than it is in our house! Simply amazing.
