Yesterday I spent pretty much the whole day trying to fix our bathroom light. No kidding. I changed the bulb several times, and even tookimages a trip to the hardware store twice.

“Why does he get the promotion? I’ve been here longer and I work so hard. It should have been me.”

“How come she’s the one who gets married? She’s younger than I am! It should have been me.”

“Why does this lazy guy have it easy while I work hard for my money? I’m the good person. It should have been me.”
