G0OSES 1K WHINGING POM Giveaway - CANCELLED (for now)

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CANCELLED UNTIL I GET ANOTHER JOB SORRY.

Ok so without realising it I just slipped over 1k posts, which obviously means 1 thing…. a giveaway!
As PP very kindly pointed out (git) I did so whilst whinging………… so I thought I’d d something a little different!

I want to hear your best whinge/rant! Feel free to open the flood gates and let it all out, but no politics please and nothing that’s going to upset (too much Evil )
Or you could let us know about a historic whinge that got you somewhere lol!

General giveaway rules apply here – you must have at least 10 posts to enter – one entry per person – more than 1 and both get voided.

I will choose the best whinge, I don’t need a randomiser to do it lol!

A ‘whinging pom’ is Australian expression used to refer to a person of British origin who constantly complains or moans – whinges.

Simply enter with ‘I’m a whinging POMSilly and then have a good old moan about something! doesn’t have to be a lot – funny helps! OR a funny whinging video!

The prize will be $25 to spend anywhere – but you must have a Paypal address, and you must show me what you bought when you have it Smile (doesn’t have to be a light, but I’d rather it was)

I will send this via Paypal friend payment as it’s the only way since I can’t buy a voucher from Banggood or something. I won’t be paying fees, there shouldn’t be any?

I would have done a bit more, but at the moment things are a little tight since I was laid off with no pay lol! Smile

Winner will be picked in 1 months (19/4/2020) time or there about’s.

I'm not big on ranting, so I'm not in this one.

Thanks for the giveaway, G0OSE!

im a whinging pom because

marmite costs 15 euro for a big jar in finland!

Oh you think darkness is your ally
You merely adopted the dark, I was born in it ,moulded by it
I didn’t see the light until I was allready a man, by then it was nothing to me but blinding
The shadows belong to me

Fw1a pro might help in the situation !

I’m trying not to whine at present…. but, I am grumpy about the postponed, maybe canceled F1 events. Everything up to and including Monaco is on hold.

LOL you’re in the running!
For a minute there I thought you were my next door neighbour when you mentioned seagulls! (long and funny story – lets just say they like to return to his chimney each year – I pray for their return even though they are noisy – completely outweighed by it being so comical to watch.)

Eheh, thanks for accepting my ranting entry and for the generous GAW, in these times of contention! Wink
Here in my city, Porto, which is “close” to the sea, seagulls are a constant, as are pidgeons. During the night they wake me up when flying in bands due to the noise they do! They stay in chimneys, balconies, streets, roofs…wherever they can land. Seek for trash, other food…or pidgeons !

Well, at least they gave me a motive to move and leave my chair Silly

Stay well mate Thumbs Up

I’m really not much into whining. It actually infuriates me when people whine. But since you asked so nicely… Wink

I’m sick of this coronavirus crap. Not to sound callous, because I know people have died and that truly is sad and not to be taken lightly. But if I were any less centered, there might be a few less people in my house by the time this “social distancing” is done. I love my wife and 5 kids. But being cooped up with them inside (it’s cold and rainy and will be that way for quite a while) is getting old fast. Being in Illinois, all schools are shut down. The church where my wife works is shut down. I don’t dare take the youngin’s to daycare. Work (a great company actually) had asked me to work from home. And since the schools are closed, they switched to “e-learning”. Which means the teachers get to assign a bunch of assignments and I get to teach them to my kids and administer homework. So… I’m supposed to be “working”, teaching my kids, running a day care, maintaining the house (dishes, laundry, etc), being the cook, etc, etc. I’m glad I have a stockpile of venison to live on and a couple hundred bottles of homemade wine to help keep me from blowing a head gasket. Angry

Whew, I’m done now!

I’m a whinging POM because

I bought a new laptop just before a lockdown where I live but had to send it back due to hardware issues Facepalm That said, I know lots of people are affected and there more concerning problems that what happened to me and hope this all blows over soon.

Also, I still hate stock clips that come with flashlights.

I hate over sensitive people, I hate narcissistic people , I hate paying good money for stuff that don’t work properly,I hate people who lie ,I hate these morons who’s going round panic buying , I hate China’s generosity for giving us the gift of covid19 ,I hate macaroni cheese , I hate getting up early ,I hate people who think having a big or flashy car makes them think they’re superior to anyone else,I hate being cold , I hate feeling too hot, I hate cheap coffee, I hate tea with no sugar in it,I hate silly rules ,I hate anduril, I hate uncomfortable chairs ,I hate Facebook ,I hate people who whine too much, I hate shoddy workmanship,but what I hate most of all is when there’s a competition the prize money is in dollars instead of pounds.
Apart from that I’ve not really got anything to whine about ,so I’m not sure if I qualify.

I have to say this idea is absolutly stupid !
Ranting and grumbling is not something people should make fun of !
You know what ? Some of my colleagues call me Grandpa and these poor idiots don't do it because i'm always providing them with some of the knowledge and wisdom i have accumulated among years but because they feal i am some kind of grumpy rambler ... Stupid folks !
And the worse thing about it is that my old dad, who was a REAL grumbler, got the exact same nickname from is own colleagues more than forty years ago while i can assure you i am nothing like a grumbler or a ranter compared to him !
That "like father like son" thing is just perfect nonsense and i'd have an easy time proving it if only i would ! You just don't deserve my time !
What do you say ? I am not whinging ?
Of course i am not whinging !
I hate whinging people ! So please stop this idiot contest immediatly and give me the prize !

I’m a whinging POM’ Silly

All the stores are out to toilet paper, waaaaa, waaaaaa, boooo hooo, hooo, cry, cry, cry, blaaaah, blaaah, blaaah. I spent two tears in South East Asia mostly in the countryside provinces, where there’s only a hole in the ground and a bucket of water. I don’t need no stinkin’ (literally) TP. I have running water and a shower in every bathroom. So, cry me a river, people that don’t have a years stockpile of TP in their garage. Cry me a river, a big stinkin’ river boooooo hooo hooo!

Big Smile how was that for whining. LOL.

My Future's So Bright...well, my flashlights are anyways.

strobe me, strobe me. STROBE! STROBE! strobe me, strobe me. STROBE! STROBE!

Well this contest irritates the snot outta me, because I have no idea what a whinging POM is. Must be a Brit thing. Couldn’t you have been a little more sensitive to others elsewhere in the world? Whatever.

The useless politicians are passing ordinances like crazy to keep the illusion they are important! In town, no groups of more than ten people are allowed. Up here in the mountains you never see ten people in a day, so they’re passing an ordinance that you are not allowed to talk to yourself… groan, that’s the stupidest bit of whining I ever heard.
There I go again, talking to myself.
Oh, and keep your stupid prize, nobody needs to buy yet another flashlight!

Ohhh that’s gooood! so good I really can’t tell if you are serious or not, although it doesn’t really matter lol…….. specifically the last bit….. it is either top notch sarcasm, which might fly over some peoples heads, or you genuinely are annoyed and the fact that it IS sarcasm that only some would get has passed right over your head whilst typing it and made me chuckle either way lol. Thumbs Up Silly Wink

Ok, I didn’t forsee this problem – I’ll update the first post with info lol!
It’s a bit of fun, sarcastic moaning griping kinda thing, in a humorous way if possible… Wink Australians (unlike PP he’s Austrian) Wink call moaning English people ‘whinging poms’ – since my 1000th post was me ‘whinging’ as PP pointed out – that’s what I thought I’d do for a fun giveaway.

I forgot that sarcasm does not properly translate though, my wife’s Russian and my boss is Polish and I am, unfortunately quite very sarcastic – sadly it is entirely lost on them for the most part.
They either think I’m having a ‘dig’ at them and get offended, or just don’t get it at all and wait for further explanation, which of course ruins the humour. Silly
I wonder, and I suppose it must – does it work the other way? presumably Russian people for example have a form of sarcasm that an English person wouldn’t get? or maybe it’s uniquely English? who knows!
