    What percent of your life is a tough slog ?

    You know , where it feels like you are trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

    I added 50% just for you optimists. I find anything lower too hard to believe.

    I'm 98% easy. Not an iota less.

    I go to buy a couple pairs of pants. The fitting rooms are closed cuz covid. I go by the size, get them home and their too small. So they gotta go back . But probably will just lay around and get forgetten about

    I go to change the windshield wipers on my vehicle. Get ones that are supposed to fit on 8 different styles. Fuck around wasting data on my phone with YouTube videos for instructions. Just to find out that they are wrong

    Then I go get fast food just to say fuck it and enjoy myself , and Wendy's butchers my order. Yay

    These are just little tasks that I have to get done. The bigger tasks are just as hopeless.

    This is how most of my days go

    How is this pity ? I'm just saying how it goes. Nothing more or less

    I think it's like this for most people

    Be a good Yahoo and vote 50%

    Less than 5%. All the poll selections are ridiculously high. Try this to alleviate the slog pain.

    You have it made Norton, judging by your avatar and signature. My goal in life is to be you. Must be nice to do nothing all day. I'm serious

    That's what I did on my trips. I remember in Pattaya, there was a burger king with 5 baht ice cream. My task for the afternoon was to get on my bike , ride over there and get the ice-cream . And I enjoyed every second of it

    Maybe the Burger king is still there. I think it's over by Jomtien.

    What the fuck ? Who said it was unfair ?? I sure as hell didn't. Its just the nature of reality. When you aren't in Pattaya with all the money you need. You fucking clown

    It's just a place with the best mix of western amenities , 3rd world chaos and good civic urbanism. You don't have to do anything to enjoy being in a place like Pattaya

    Socal I want to thank you for this morning Thai time. It is now quite obvious what a naive moron you are. Add to that a loser and its still not enough for an accurate description. When was the last time you had something going on in your life?

    Covid 19 and the Juntas lunatic barring of foreign tourists has nothing to do with my argument about the socio-economic conditions that are creating vast hoards of 18 to 30 year old mongers out west.

    Open the fucking gates and let the vast hoard buck. Then Pattaya will recover

    I am saying it isn't fair. Seriously, you do get worked up so easily.
    It's unfair that things don't simply work out as desired.
    It's just not fair

    Life is a 'rough slog' when you buy a couple of pairs of pants that don't fit.

    He could do with a month volunteering somewhere.

    My marriage and my investments and everything are about as in good of shape as those pants that don't fit

    I see a lot of ppl getting shafted in a day. I assumed everyone would sorta agree that life is a bitch. Seems we have a ton of winners here on TD forum

    Yeah I know the little pep talk. Win some. Lose some yadayada. Its more like win 1% lose 99% of the time

    I feel like I am the captain of the Stanley Cup winning team when one little thing so happened to go right. Like today , the one little bit of paperwork for taxes was e-mailed successfuly. I'm only 5 months late

    Actually, we're quite into that, both here and in KL, Sing and Brisbane, for decades . . . it puts things into perspective.

    We started with our eldest daughter at first spending weekdays after school for two hours daily playing with kids in the children's cancer dept at hospitals in Singapore, the youngest started out with spending time with the children with cochlear implants in KL and reading to the orang asli kids for a charity we are quite involved with in KL.
    But yes . . . ill-fitting pants . . . sucks. Total drag.

    If you're saying that your marriage is in trouble then I am sorry to hear that.

    Investments . . . think long-term

    Not necessarily winners . . . just not whiners.

    This thread just illustrates the old adage that life is even harder if you're dumb.

    There are times in life where it’s like a hot knife through butter it’s so easy.
    Other times are a real struggle.
    But you do tend to make your own luck through attitude and action.
