In my local paper (AJC) they have a section called the Vent. The rules are simple.

It must be 1-5 sentences.

There are no debates or trolling but you can respond to other posts.

Your vent can be political, regional, schools, sports, living, parenting, the way people drive, the health care system, etc.

I'll copy a few to get things started and to give you an idea.

If you have any short 'vents' feel free to add!!

**edited to add a few more details**

Just give a brief complaint...you know, just vent a little. Even though I'm not in the area any longer, I still visit due to my entire family living there. One thing I can say is...

Why the heck does everyone hang out at Wal-Mart all of the time? I can go to Wal-Mart here and be in sweat pants and a pony tail. If I did that in Muscle Shoals, everyone would call everyone and say..."guess who I saw today...and she looked like h*ll!!"
Here's a few more to get things going...


Southerners don’t dislike all Yankees. Just the ones who won’t shut up about ‘how it’s done up North’.



I have no objection to any Mexican wanting to come here to live. It’s that “illegal” part that concerns me.



America WOULD be a melting pot if so many people didn’t refuse to MELT. Start by speaking ENGLISH.

This country IS ready for a female president. Just not the one who is running.


**not my opinions...just examples**

DITTO! And why do people want to block the aisles and hold a reunion where other shoppers cannot get around them and go about their own business? GET OUT OF THE FREAKIN WAY PEOPLE!!!!
Please don't act shocked when you go to a store and you are asked to pay. You stand in line, watch your items being scanned and when the total is given...HOLY SMOKES! You mean I have to pull my wallet out and pay? Boy, I didn't see that one coming. Give me about 5 minutes so I can figure out how swipe my card the right way, write a check, count out change.

Be courteous and i might let you in front of me Smiler



AMEN!!! You are even more likely to get over if you use your blinker.

I've seen this here more than on other forums. Several people call the poster by a nickname to make them sound simple. Others shake their heads til they rattle. Others are just outright mean if you don't agree with them. It doesn't say much for them.
