Noticed something-number of Irked today vs. pleased today posts

Recommended Posts

I realise that the irked thread is a year older than the pleased thread, roughly 2 years to 1 year.

Yet there are 4 times the number of irked posts.

Now, I have not read them, so the gross numbers may not be an accurate measurement. You would hope that there would be more pleased posts.  But maybe that is why we have so many threads that go bad. There are just more irked people than please people?

Just a thought. Yes, I am not well. :wacko:

Thoughts?

That was exactly the intention of the "What pleased you..." Topic. 

A place to offer positive thoughts and encouragement for all who would rather not focus on the negative. We all have situations that irk us, but I'd rather get past those as quickly as possible.  

But most Sheeple would rather complain than do something about it!

Sheeple don't really realize there's anything large wrong in the world anyway; as long as they have their bread and circuses, they're content.

But you're right... people, in general, would rather rag about things than get sweaty and change them.

And in today's "new improved" world, it's much more automatic to be peeved because of some minor inconvenience or perceived slight than it is to actively look for something to be grateful for.

Just average humans being average humans.;)

you always hear more about "road rage" than "road bliss", that's just the way it is...

It's human nature.  People who are 'irked,' 'annoyed,' or any higher degree of 'angry' tend to ventilate it more.  People who are 'happy' or 'pleased' just don't advertise it as much.  Nothing to complain about.  Complainers are always louder and more noticeable than happy people.

It's something that's been drilled into me my entire customer service/retail career - people are more than twice as likely to complain as they are to praise.

sort of along the lines that if people are satisfied with your service they'll tell a friend, but if they're dissatisfied, they'll tell ten.

Road bliss? Novel concept. Maybe something like this?

I had a manager at one place, He said if you haven't heard a rumor by 9 am start one. For some this rule applies to Drama.

You started a thread to complain that there were too many complaints in the complaint thread?

Not to mention the pleased thread was started later than the irked one.

I did make that comment in my original post. 2 years vs almost 1 year. Yet a 4 to 1 ratio.

the whole point of my original post was just to point out something kind of funny, at least to me. Well, funny and sad at the same time. I don't see what I posted as complaining. Just pointing out a somewhat amusing fact.

Every once in awhile I'll open the "What irked me" thread and I'll just have a good laugh, It's pretty much turned into place for old guys to whine about trivial things. It's the equivalent to Facebook but minus the Ray Ban ads and "some" politics. :lol:

I prefer my TR4 but an MGB will do in a pinch.   ;)

someday, you will whine about trivial things...

I may not be alive to see it, but I could put money on it.

Many people with your attitude toward "older" people never live long enough to become one.

Hey Austin, lighten up on the old guys. For some of us, the only emotional outlet of any kind left to us is bidging about nothing.;)

Glad to see that my opinion has now become "A trivial thing".
