    I notice that, up until now, a thread asking Funsters what makes us cross gets over double the replies to a similar one asking what makes us happy...

    So we prefer moaning then?

    I wonder... why?

    Look at the news. Must be 10:1 in favour of bad news. Maybe 100:1 when you filter out the lies pretending to be good news.

    Last few days, father murdering daughter, shootings, racial abuse, avalanche, floods, conflict in The House, banking fraud. banking excesses, slavery, Syria, the Euro......

    I can't recall one bit of good news.

    So it's not just FUN.

    In the last 8 days I've sent e-mails of complaint regarding their errors to two managing directors, one chief executive and one chairman of school governors. I've lost count of the number of times I've thanked people for good service over the same period. Perhaps it is the irritating that we remember more :BigGrin:

    Most of the time we don't realise what makes us happy ..... We only notice it ... when it has gone away...


    One of our best songs writter wrote this "We only recognise 'Happiness' with the noise IT is making when leaving".

    My list of what makes us happy was too long to post.


    Still like a good moan at idiots and incompetence though

    Probably right. As I've "matured" I've seemed to have less inhibitions about telling people when they get things wrong rather than just being intimidated into being polite :BigGrin:

    Every thing makes me happy but unhappy things

    Drag me down and mrs ts illness doesn't help

    can't get away at the moment

    precipitating most days lately

    Just little things but they climb on your shoulders and press

    Nearly stopped reading the papers

    Avoid the news but it filters through

    And heavens forbid I heard on beeb Essex radio today

    Sarfend fastball club are aving bloomin friendlies :Eeek:

    Don't tell me it's nearly time to turn the telly off

    Can't watch in a fortnight because of the conglomerates Olympics

    Then it'll be football again

    Oohh I [STRIKE]can't[/STRIKE] dont believe it

    i don`t expect there are many 16 to 25 year olds on here, and i don`t expect they don`t even know who Victor Mildrew is:thumb:
    Young guys don`t moan alot--they just get on with things--- they moan later, when they can`t do it any more:Rofl1:

    Can only speak for myself but living (much of the time) in France I am not bogged down with the problems that France have in the main.

    Life is lighter as I either choose to ignore the bad, think it doesn't concern me, don't understand what the French are up to and only take note of the good.

    Where's as although I'm out of the UK for much of the time I get to know if Beckham has hurt his toe pretty quickly or other negative things, and as others have mentioned most news is bad news, so whether in the UK or not it all looks pretty miserable there at the moment as I understand and grew up with it.

    What I am saying is people who are not natives can live a lighter less stressed life in another country, maybe you are also one of those lucky few?

    just be happy .
    got food clothes and vehicles to drive around got more than a shilling in my pocket so what is there to be unhappy about .
    nothing wrong with the uk but i do think there may be something wrong with people .
    mind not just here there are unhappy people all over the world , yet none of them will ever be happy they are just miserable folk .
    lifes never been better i dont know what folk want .
    there does seem to be lots of money to waste.
