THE RIGHT TO GRIPE

I had to do it! I had to create a blog so you and I could gripe about all of "The Crap" that we encounter everyday in our lives. Believe me, there is plenty! You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight or say it's your opinion. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy. To post your own Gripe just email it to therighttogripe@hotmail.com and we will get it on. You can also post a Gripe on our Facebook page. Just search The Right To Gripe. If you don't want to write it down, just click on one of the boxes below each Gripe to give your opinion. You can also become an official "Griper". All you need to do is "Sign Up" and create an account. IT'S FREE! So, don't sit back and take it, just GRIPE IT!

(UPDATE) Fecal Fee - Dumped On Again


Back on May 9th I Griped about the Sewer Rental Fee now instituted by the Borough of Forty Fort. Well guess what? I woke up this morning to a laundry room full of shit water! That's right, my FREAKIN" sewer backed up! Evidently I have rented a piece of shit sewer line and I am pissed. As I sit here to contemplate my plan of action, I realize that I, yes I must call a plumber to come and check it out before the Borough even gets involved. Of course this would normally cost me about $200 to $400 for them to come out on a Saturday and roto root out the line. It will only cost me $50 because I actually have the insurance for this kind of thing. Yes, there is insurance for this type of problem! Just so you know, I pay about $4.00 per month or $48.00 per year to have insurance on a sewer line that is not actually mine. I RENT THE FREAKIN THING!


This type of bullshit really pisses me off. I am paying a sewer rental fee and I have to pay to get the sewer bored out! Now, there is another twist to this plot. Forty Fort is a Tree U.S.A. Community which means we have tons of trees on our tree lawns. During dry and or cold spells, the roots of these trees seek a warmer moist area which results in them penetrating into your sewer line. The roots then spread out inside the line and block the sewer. So, when you put this all together, its means me, the taxpayer gets the "shitty end of the stick". I pay for the rental of the sewer. I pay a sewer fee to the Sanitary Authority. I pay for the water to flush the toilet. I pay for the insurance in case the line gets blocked and I cannot cut down the tree on my tree lawn because you have to get a Papal blessing from the insane Tree Lady to do so. Of course, I have to cut and maintain the Freakin' tree lawn. Something does not add up here! One plus one equals a crap load of money flying out of my pocket. I am sick and tired of swimming in fecal matter while taking it in the back pocket.

Coming up tomorrow, my candidates for Luzerne County Judge.
