Why am I not allowed to vent my frustration, anger and annoyance at your incompetence?
Remain poised, you say.
Calm down, you say.
Don't be so passionate, you say.
Why can't I expose and tell you exactly how I feel about your irritating, petty ways?
How much you trivialize things that are serious!
How much you take for granted opportunities that the  underprivileged among us would die for!
How frustrating it is to know that if it was a different time or place I could be somewhere else, doing something else but I choose to teach you, however, ungrateful you are!

    You are perfectly right "my fellow country woman", as someone had called you earlier. We all have the right to vent, to express ourselves in our own ex told me that I have no rights...well I exercised my right to excommunicate him from my life. Let the ink continue to flow from your pen. One love. Joy Wells
