This thread is all about posting complaints for a sympathetic ear.
It's normal and needs to be embraced as a positive thing because it's a valid view point.
and It's healthy to let it all out.

Some people even complain about having to hear other people complaining.
I think we can do better than that.
Let your inner critic go nuts.

Bonus points for unimportant details and a comparison with an earlier situation.

I'll start.

Twinnings earl grey isn't real earl grey because it has bergamont flavoring instead of real bergamont.
The percentage of the flavoring has decreased, too I have a tin that boasts 4.5% flavoring and the new stuff is 3.5%
other teas have upto 1.5% and the lose leaf has even less than the tea bags.

Everyone seems to think letting anger out is a good thing, but it is not. It makes us lose control of our angry emotions, since we let it out so often. It is best to keep it in, and eventually have better control over it.

I bottle up my anger THEN release it at the appropriate time (whenever someone ticks me off), does that count?

Not really, because as time moves on and this continues, the more likely you are to stop being able to wait for the "appropriate time".

It's OK. Blame the people who constantly belittle all of us that it's best to let it out.

And...You're still doing better than those that don't hold it in at all.

We get it, don't let it out because we loose control but don't bottle it up because we loose control.
You would have made more sense if you said to not get angry at all.

Coffee is disgusting and bitter.
It addicts people, then makes them annoying and incorrigible.
The worst bit is that an addict who stops drinking gets depressed and difficult to deal with.
And the icing on the cake is that almost everybody drinks it, and they all try to get people who don't drink it to drink it, and saturate public air with its rancid scent.
Real men drink tea.

No, no, no. Bottle it up, that way you gain control eventually.

Got called to a double car fire Saturday night, but the downtown station guys were already there. Overlap is regarded as a waste of time, so our lieutenant sent the pump truck back. I stayed to help out until the paramedics got there because I have EMT training, and the assholes gave me a hard time just because I was from another station. Like as if that even matters when people are hurt..... I'm not even sure if I'm glad I did, but the drunk teen who plowed into the back of a parked car was walking around with a spine injury so obvious I could see thoracic vertebrate jutting out of his back. It looked like he had a soda can trying to escape from under his shirt. I told the officer questioning him and he said I shouldn't interfere. I gave him a dirty look, and made the kid sit down and hold still. Officer mush-face started bitching at me and I barked at him: you can still talk to him sitting down can't you?! Kid waited all of five seconds before bursting into tears. I held his hand, but the whole time I kept thinking about uppercutting the jackass. He didn't just drive into a parked car, he ran some people off the road first. I didn't see much, because they were a half mile down. Watched as four ambulances showed up, they spent an hour pulling people out, one after another. Couldn't have been good.

I wanted to punch basically everyone there, the downtown boys, the officer, the kid. Just line them all up and smack them all in a row like cartoon slapstick... Fucking childish bullshit from every god damn direction... Blech... People...

Anger is like diarrhea, you can hold it in for a bit, but eventually it'll build up and all come squirting out of your pants. ......so not so good of a thing to hold it in.....

Learning to control anger is like being potty trained, you tend to soil yourself while figuring out how to get to the toilet.
