382 GRIPES and Griping Strong!



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!

The Repairman Cometh....NOT!

Every year I call the furnace repair company to come to my house to clean my furnace.  Let me tell you that it is important to have your furnace cleaned every year.  Anyway, I had the appointment set up for today, Friday at high noon.  I left work at about 11:30 so I would be home in time to greet the guy at the door.  As I sat at my kitchen table reading the paper, time was ticking closer and closer to 12 noon.  It was 11:45, no repairman.  11:50, nothing yet. 11:55, still nothing.  Finally high noon, he must be on the porch right now.  No, he's not.  I waited and waited and waited, 15, 20 minutes went by.  Finally, my cell phone rings and guess who it is?  You got it, the furnace repairman.  He was calling to inform me that he would not be able to make it due to an emergency.  ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME!  I left work, drove home and now you are not coming!  Of course, this is typical.  When you call the cable company, gas, water or electric company they always give you the "The repair man will be there sometime between 8 and 1 or 12 and 5".  I am sick and tired of this crap!  Why can't these clowns narrow the time down to at least a one hour range.  Hell, you have to take a day off from work when you need something done.  I love it when they give you the 12 to 5 hour time range and then show up right at 5.  If I knew that I could have gotten a full day of work in.  It also sends me into a lather when they show up and they don't have the parts.  This means you have to set up another appointment and burn another vacation day.  This drives me insane!  The icing on the cake is when the repair job takes about 20 minutes and they whack you a C-note or more.  The bottom line here is these companies have you by the short hairs and they know it.  They can spew out any time range they like because they know you need them to repair your broken item.  Do they give a rats behind....NO!  They string us along like lemmings toward the cliff.  I for one am sick and tired of this.  It simply sets my testicular region a blaze.          


  1. Sorry to hear you suffer from jock itch when the repair man blows you off. (no pun intended) I've this really great site I found while doing research for working on my house. http://waterheatertimer.org/
    The diy section is immense, unfortunately I don't think their is anything on cleaning furnaces. Try youtube and good luck.

  2. Steven O. I decided to save the $148.00 for the furnace cleaning. I will do it myself.
