Bring 'em on! What gets under your skin? Possible categories include but are not limited to: household tasks; stupid driving tricks; grammar violations; untoward habits of our nearest and dearest; and annoyances at the cubical farm or equivalent.
Dishes, for example. Apparently, nobody in my entire family has the ability to rinse dishes except me, despite years of training loving encouragement. We all dislike unloading/loading the dishwasher, which is why we got this fabulous double sink, with an extra deep side in which to stash the rinsed dishes until someone (me) gets around to the dishwasher. And still, we have the spectacle of dishes, pans, and cutlery laying around the counter and stove and the other sink, preserving the remains of whatever was on them for posterity. Because no, despite the promotional claims, our dishwasher does not handle food dried to the consistency of cement. Harrumph.
Regular whines and anti-whines are, as always, most welcome.
Wednesday Whining is a weekly blog with rotating hosts. Whines and Anti-Whines, both big and small, are welcome! Our purposes are mutual support and sharing a few laughs along the way.
The Wednesday Whining Community is diverse, and strives to be safe, welcoming, and supportive. To this end, comments that are personally abusive or otherwise disparaging [regarding race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation] will be deleted by moderators, along with spam and self-promotion.
Q: When does Wednesday Whining appear? A: The Whiner's Ball commences no later than Tuesday, and ends when Awards are given (usually Thursday in theory, but definitely before Monday).
Q: Awards? Really? A: Yes, really. Traditional awards include Style [music, poetry, etc.], Old Skool [piddly little whines], and Elevated Risk of Mullet [funniest line in a whine], but other hand-crafted awards may be granted at the host's discretion, and nominations from commenters are encouraged.
Q: Can I whine about someone who just does not "get it"? A: The Cluestick Posse is on hand for persons in need.
Q: Is there a mascot? A: Ralph is the mascot.
Q: Are there other traditions I should know about? A: The passing of virtual refreshments is appreciated.
Q: How did this all get started anyhow? A: Phantom Scribbler was our muse and host for two years.
