Knoxville Complaint Piechart 2015


In the course of 24 hours, Mother Nature has toyed with us again. This afternoon, it was a pleasant 73 degrees...Fahrenheit, people. Instead of complaining about how subpar my coat is, I totally abandoned outerwear. Sweet mysteries of life, we will be warm once more!

No; that's not it at all. Surprise! We're expecting a dip of 53 degrees tonight and ice covered roads in the morning. I kid you not.

East Tennessee, what's going on? It's been a weird winter, but there's just no use complaining about the weather anymore. Let's move on to some of our other favorite complaints for variety.

To sum it up, I've created the Official Knoxville Complaint Piechart for 2015. Just refer to the chart and you will be in tune with the minds of all native Knoxvillians.

Besides, everything looks better when it's colorful. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

  1. I'm surprised about the Yankee complaints since there's no major league baseball in Tennessee.

    1. I crawled in the window and stood over your bed, Sharpie in hand....then i thought, no - there will be no la cuccaracha mustache today. You were sleeping peacefully. ..I will return. Keep that window open. ..

  5. Ah yes, the 'Yankee' complaints. I complained about Yankees when I lived in Pennsylvania. Those danged northern New Englanders were the absolute pits! The others - I'm chuckling!
    So, with the invention of this complaint pie chart, do complainers now just yell "Orange!" and others nod, rather than growling, 'Dang it all! I ain't got enough orange shirts!' ???

    1. I don't exactly fit the mold (WV to OH to TN) but I get to hear it occasionally; I have a Yankee voice, I'm told.

      Orange!

  7. The biscuit fest must be awesome! But orange shirts don't go with blonde hair.

    1. Sister, orange shirts don't go with anything except Knoxville and the Vols. BTW, if you want to see a color look really bad on ME, go with orange, ha ha.

  8. I thought it was only a Canadian past time to complain about the weather or the Maple Leafs (I don't care about the latter at all:)) It is -8C today but we are looking forward to next week because it will be 5C-whoohoo

  9. Complain, complain....I hear this so much here in the compound (over 55 community), as people find so much to complain about. Then there are those that are young at heart and like to have a good time. Thank heavens we can choose who to be around.

    1. I want a compound of my own, ha ha. It does seem like we just cycle through them. I'm guilty of the weather complaints because the roads are messin' with my schedule in a big way.

  10. That chart is hilarious! Your post reminds me a little of Florida. We had unseasonably cold, record lows last week and now it's hot, hot, hot.

    1. Weather is always easy to complain about and we have had some fodder for complaints.

  11. We just got another foot of snow. A foot. Boy is it gorgeous. It's the wet, heavy variety that clings to the tree limbs. I love it, until it pulls down my electric line.

    So, the Yankees? You guys have a problem with New York baseball teams?

    1. No, they just remind me of my northern roots, ha ha.

  12. I must agree - everything does look better when it's colorful! I hope the weather gets a bit warmer and people have less to complain about. (Though they'll always find something, won't they?)

    1. It's like an audio loop...

      But you're in Egypt! Let's trade places for a few days. My dog would love you.

  13. Stupid weather doesn't seem to want to normalize. But I guess that allows for fancy charts haha yeah, screw the Yankees.

  14. You know, you could change a very few parts and make that a Ft Wayne piechart. Change "Boomsday" to "TRF", "biscuitfest" to "Johnny Appleseed Festival", and put "the" in front of "Yankees", and that would about do it!
