Default mentally just worn out

Life has mentally worn me out. I am getting to the point that just spending money I cant afford on just getting "jobs" done, is easier then trying to get things done at a reasonable cost.
Added to which, no good deed goes unpunished. Some people are so unpleasant and selfish thinking the world and everyone in it is the enemy, pocketing money that was meant for something else and being proud about their actions. Fueled by hate they turn their backs on the only people they could and should have trusted. Fraudulent misrepresentation of the truth is some peoples truth.

They are the sort of person to cut off their nose to spite their face and then smirk about it, I'll take it on the chin and hope they rot in hell for all eternity.
When I look in the mirror, I will always know I did the right thing.

Thank goodness my wife and I stand side by side as one, no blame, no recriminations, just togetherness. United we stand.

The actions and attitudes of others give us something/someone to compare ourselves to. Be smug and move on!

Ian, how was your flight to and from Australia, did you encounter any screaming babies sitting next to you? Did Qatar airlines live up to their reputation?

I saw in another post, you asked about a small tracker?

If you have an an iPhone there is a feature called “Find my phone”. My wife uses it to track my whereabouts.

A few years ago, a former colleague and friend asked me to go with him to the spy shop in London as he wanted to install a listening device in the family car and a tracker. He believed his wife was having an affair. He used the listening equipment he bought from the spy shop to listen into his wife’s phone calls.

Sadly the outcome of his wife’s erratic and secretive behaviour was not down to an affair or badness on her part, he discovered she had been having treatment for lung cancer and she had not told him about it. Instead of spending lots of money spying on his wife, it would have been much easier to have asked his wife but who am I to say.

In your post, you said no good deed goes unpunished?

There are people who in life appear to be at war with the world, my theory is they experienced abuse/betrayal at an early age and never got the help or resolution they needed, leaving them twisted and out for only themselves for the rest of their lifetime.

We flew Manchester to Doha, that was not too bad with a 3ish hour stop in Doha. Doha to Brisbane, oh that is long. First 8 hours "ok" watched a film and slept. the second half of the flight dragged on and on. No crying children.

Flight home, hour or so stop over at Doha but crying babies on both flights. You cannot keep babies and toddlers quiet and still for 14-16 hours. The return was worse then the flight out.
Qatar airlines, clean plane with working entertainment in back of seat in front. Leg room ok, food good.... a bit too much of it. Seats a bit hard. Stewardesses wore trousers on they way out and to long skirts on the way back, I'm above the knee bloke. They were smart, clean and tidy, polite and friendly. No complaints about staff or the plane apart from hardness of seats. The safety message you get on each flight was in the form of a video, I dont rate it, it was a bit of a joke and could so easily have been missed

As for the tracker, it is a just in case situation.
As for bitter and twisted, what you describe seems to be so in this case, you have hit the nail truly square on the head.
