The Internet complaint tool

I've hit a new blogging low this month. I just haven't been writing much. There's a good reason though. I just haven't had many things to say that are worth spewing on to the Internets.

If there's one thing about the Internet that I don't like, is that it has become somewhat of a dumping ground for negative bullshit. I find that I've dropped more "friends" on Facebook to get some of the constant bitching out of my feed than for any other reason.

Someone posted a link on CoasterBuzz to some epic bitching story about how awful it was to work at Cedar Point. Mind you, it was preceded by the note that he worked there for five years. I bring it up because it's a good example of the kind of thing I can't stand. While there is no question that bad things happen, and we all need a little backup from time to time, I can't deal with people who continue to revolve in a bad situation and are unwilling to do anything about it.

So are there things that I want to complain about? Yeah, to some degree, but I don't feel like they're things I need to unload online. Generally, life is pretty good, and I'm trying to adjust things that I'm not happy about. That's how it's done. You don't achieve anything by relentlessly complaining, online or otherwise.

Asshole. Link to the story to let people decide instead of being a fucking moron about it. This story isn't just complaining, it's got some serious issues that Cedar Fair needs to deal with.

You inconsiderate douche bag. What if your son got a job at a place like this? Would it be something you could not stand if your sons wound went septic?

You stupid douchecanoe.
