I was more successful whining at work. I complained that we couldn't name a charity as a Beneficiary for our 401(k). I bitched that it wouldn't cost them anything to allow that and they fixed it. Before February, my dad had been listed as Beneficiary on everything, but i figure that he didn't need to profit from my death quite so much. Now PP and a couple friends will (in addition to him).
Currently, i'm investigating synthetic motor oils for my oil change this afternoon. Wee.
