I'm usually on the laptop. Hence Notepad.

If someone is really pushing me about a parking spot, I've been known to get out of the truck, relock the doors and go for a walk. There's usually another store I can visit, and I like to walk. I don't wait for parking myself. I'll use the end of the row. Nine times out of ten I'm in the store faster than the idiot who was waiting. If you are that incapable of walking - get a handicapped sticker. Don't honk the horn at me to hurry up, especially if you are too damn close for me to back out! Those are the ones I'll walk off from.

Just moved halfway across the country, renting a house we found on a 2 day home finding trip. Ended up with an 18 month lease...
Rant: really having issues with this property management company and the homeowner at this new place. Supposed to have been professionally cleaned, locks re keyed etc. It says so in the freaking lease.... Did that happen before we moved in? Nope. Did we find that out before we moved in? Nope. Are they now insisting that locks get re keyed when we are not at home during our first week of work? Yup. Seriously? Oh and the gate does not close or latch, and they knew we have a 70lb dog before we moved in? And now want to have some random handyman come fix the gate... When we are not home? Yup. Oye... Just fix this stuff and leave us alone... Especially after demanding double deposit and a huge pet deposit. Seriously.
/rant.

Narcissism:

Study shows college students think they're more special than ever...even those that can't read or write and barely study | Mail Online

It ain't just students. All of a sudden a lot of people in different forums are posting their pictures instead of non-human avatars. It's like they are screaming "LOOK AT ME!!"

Hmmmm yes...

This is a tough 1 but not for "Professor Stinky Von Stinky Stein"!!

...






Yeah bruizer!

I just had a chat with ... "Da proff" and his flawless genius says that the reasons why most of all the 1st world countries have become so fat... slow.... and lazy is very simple he says!

The legendary professor of the Academy of Drokshire said it all started with THIS horrible and nasty little thing:



You see it all started when some random thing (thing / person) asked itself:

"I have HAD IT with breathing oxygen as it is too much work!!!

AND above ALL else... I HATE having to get up off the couch and walk less than a few meters just to turn that wonderful magic box!!"

So that is how thew TV remote was invented ladies and gentlemen.

And also "Da Proff" said something about something like great civilizations all around the globe that come and go and get too powerful and then they get frackin lazy blah blah blah I don't remember the rest because their was a very interesting air molecule that I thought was way more interesting so ja I got distracted a little.

So there we have it!

From the proff's mouth himself!

Yeah!

People who can't read:

FedEx Driver Can’t Read Street Signs, Shrugs

Could have been DHL, but we had a driver consistently mistake Monument with Willamette. I thought Dyslexia was left to right not right side up and upside down.

I've had a dogcatcher try to bust me for a biting dog.. I don't own a dog, never have owned a dog - he wouldn't shut up, kept lecturing me about dog control and was ready to ticket me for non-cooperation. I finally got to ask him what address he was supposed to be checking on - it was 2 freaking streets over!

He was totally pissed as he thought he had his complaint solved.

Let him go for it.

Make a scene.

Do not say it is not your dog; be very polite.

Lead him on and aggravate him until he calls the police or writes you a ticket. Waste his time then politely tell him you do not have a doggy. Play a few dog barks in the background and tell him it is your girl friend's distemper acting up.

Ask him what he puts on those dog bites he routinely receives. I bet he gets bitten allot

Tomorrow, borrow a dog and play the same loud recorded doggy sounds. Let him knock on your door. Lead him on and let him rant about lying to him.

Politely tell him it is a friends dog.

Tell him he needs a search warrant. Toss in something about "reasonable searches" and the lights in the night sky being oddly ominous and frightful. Mention the third amendment to the Constitution and section 34(C) of the (insert your city name here) Municipal Code against being questioned by a postal worker without your rights being read to you. Drive him nuts.

Mention the laws against postal workers enacted in your city in 1932.

Go on and on about the Equal Dog Rights Amendment passed in 1908.

The next day, buy a cat. A wild one. Play loud angry cat sounds.

Learn to bark at the postman. Tell him you love him and you will pray for his soul.

Rage against the machine and power to the people.

Seriously, I hate people like your postman. I try to make unreasonable people more unreasonable if possible. Always be polite and never lie.

Here in Utah, they can refuse to deliver mail if they perceive a threat. Perhaps that is a federal law. Just do not piss off the UPS guy because he brings the Christmas cookies.

I had a watch cat. Big neutered male. He only went out with his harness and leash. Half the kids in the neighborhood were scared of him. If my daughter wanted company, I shut him up in our bedroom.

I don't get Christmas Cookies, I don't eat sweets. I just might be expecting a new eyepiece, though.

The dog catcher pissed me off. Wouldn't do anything about a neighbor whose dog constantly pooped in our yard.

The mail carriers make the same mistake. All they see is the house number. It doesn't help as the street has Way, Circle, Street, etc.with the same name in the same area. Stupid subdivisions.

One of the mail centers just lost my order from Amazon. It's sitting in a mail facility here, and no one can find it. Amazon made good on it.

There's a good angry emoticon in the smilie list next to where you type your message text.

The speaker cleaner app I use for my phone seems to help, and has an odd bonus. I run it, the cat comes running to me in "cuddle me pet me" mode. Seems like that app (or sometimes selecting ringtones) flips the "affection" switch in her furry head.

I just ran my index finger into my rotary cutter. My own stupidity for not closing the shield. I'd just sharpened the damn thing. Now it's a PITA to try to enter anything on the phone.

Here's What Grinds My Gears. People who complain about others posting topics that have already been posted.
I know that the search button should be used more than it is, and that maybe we all should do a little more reading before starting a new thread.
But Really, isn't complaining time after time about multiple posts and people not searching enough, just as bad? When I see a question that I can answer, I will answer it, no matter how many times it has been answered. But if I don't like what I see, I have learned to just move on. It will or will not get answered.
In the end, I've saved myself a littlle time and frustration. Then I can move on to more important topics, like trying to get Justin Beiber on that first flight to Mars.

just my 1-cents worth (the kids went through my pockets and got the other penny).

Have you ever really tried that search button? Some of the results are totally off the wall. One of the terms searched for will be in a paragraph down the post, and the whole post isn't even relevant to your search.

Fanboys again. This isn't Apple - it's a damned bread machine. Asked one question and 3 replies said don't dork with the machine - it's perfect. Nothing is freaking perfect. Except the weather at times and even that depends on your use. A sunny day for outdoors for the family is no good to a farmer who needs rain.

And a large percentage of the results are from years ago, which can be less than helpful on technology-related questions. If there's a way to sort to put more recent results on the first page or two, I haven't found it.

Default Re: Rant Thread - What really grinds your gears?

The search takes some getting used to, but there are options in the advanced search that make it a lot easier to use.

The basic one is to show posts instead of threads, and to search for multiple terms using Boolean logic controls, or else search for a phrase if that is what you are looking for.

That being said, though, there should never be a rude response to anyone h ***didn't*** use the search button. Since performing the search takes 5 seconds, but being rude to someone usually takes more, spend less time and just link to the search you would have performed if you were the OP.

It's not rocket science - and there is never a need to be rude, no matter how good you ***THINK*** you are. You were a n00b once - even if you were using BBS systems on a 300 baud modem. Even if you helped develop the original TCP/IP stack - you have no right to be rude here, and rather than reprimanding the n00b who didn't search, I'm betting my savings account that the mods here will reprimand ***ANYONE*** who is rude to a n00b.

Some have never run into the Boolean search terms, and some that you did know seem to be a little different today.

So why not post a sticky on top of which terms to use for what when you are searching? So you don't get just posts.

OH MY SWEET AND SOUR PORK CHOPS SMOTHERED IN TASTY CHEMICAL RELISH

CREATURES that choose to NOT stop and let yououou cross at the Zebra crossing (I think you mindless or crazy Yankies call them "pedestrian crossings" or something? They are called Zebra crossings here.) when you are just taking a stroll to the shops and then you come to a near death experience by almost being mowed down into poodle pup or turned into road kill because NOBODY likes to actually remember the RULES OF THE FREAKING ROAD.......

OH MY GOD CAPE TOWN DRIVERS NEED THEIR BRAINS EXAMINED BEFORE GETTING A DRIVER'S LICENSE...

Unless they get them in a lucky packet or bribe a loser "official" traffic cop to "earn" their license!

Gotta love SA!

Yay!

I can now count how many times this has happened in about the last six months on more than 1 hand...

Wow messed up man I almost died.

I always look very very carefully before crossing the road but these losers think they are so "entitled" they don't give a flying frack and they move so damn quick you have next to no time to react!



I don't know just 1 I know a bazillion as they are all around me!

I am born and originally from Durbs (Durban - Very English - East Coast of SA) and I always thought everyone there used to seriously be joking when they said Cape Town drivers are actually the worst drivers in the world...

Wow!

They were'nt joking at all not 1 single bit they were damn serious and I just thought they were joking!

Yikes bruizer!!

Next time... I will walk with a nice heavy brick in my hand so they think twice before tryin to run this little Roach over and turn me into Road Kill!!

Mwhahahaaa!

It doesn't really make me mad, but just disappointed. None of the internet communities I used to go to are really any fun anymore. They're all bitter, hostile, and troll-infested with bandwagoners everywhere. Nobody really has a voice anymore, there's only one right opinion. There's nothing to really discuss anymore, because there's nothing you can discuss anymore without that one person showing up and ruining it for everyone.

I come online to avoid the monotony of everyday real life, but it seems like lately it's been just as bad, if not worse. I guess I should just take a break for a while.

If you are experiencing that on these forums I am very surprised as this forum has been nothing but good to me. But don't take any notice of these people as they don't deserve the time of day.

Not this forum, mostly the gaming forums I used to go to. Almost every one of them has become insufferably stupid. There are a few less active boards that I go to that aren't so bad, though.

I have to say this is the only forum were I am treated with respect and get call names just because people think my questions are stupid. I too have had bad experience with gaming forums the worst was with a FIFA forum and because of the abuse I no longer venture to the forums or play the game.

I agree with you though its getting increasingly hard to stay away from those sort of people. Hang in there.

Yankie-Doodle-Mon... you give humanity a bad name with your kind, sweet and wonderful compliments that you and your kind need to be exterminated and replaced by us angry disease ridden roaches instead!

I certainly hope this is not the case here. As my earlier post re: searching mentioned, the mods value courtesy a lot higher than product knowledge. And that is the way it should be.

Ahh, those kids. Lol, yeah that's the issue with the kids - I was rather rambunctious myself when I was younger and tagging on at different BBSs around town, then around the world.
I finally realized, though, that I could easily be a jackass any time - but people tended to respect me more when I was not, even if I didn't have a clue as to what I was saying (well, everywhere except XDA, maybe lol)

Glad to hear it - the mods and green guys like myself go to great pains to try to keep that atmosphere exactly as it should be - fun, relaxing, entertaining, and knowledgeable. I, for one think all my fellow greenie beanies and the red heads do a fabulous job. Me, maybe not so much

Pretty much every time I try to search using Chrome Omnibox, instant searching doesn't work. And then midway through typing the search again on the Google website, it tries to save some search tmp file, and i never spot it, so i end up saving that file as my search. I which means I have to retype my search AGAIN before Google searches it -_-

People are too wrapped up in their own importance and opinions. I just read an answer to a post on another forum where the OP stated he was running XP home. The first response told him how to deal with the problem in XP PRO!

I got told on another forum I was stupid to buy something today - that I had bought 10 years ago! Why would I buy something I already owned? I said I already had it.

The responders were in too much of a hurry to pay attention to the whole original post.

You go to a photography forum, and some are worse than Android/Apple nonsense.
Of course you are bored. Who wants to read pages of words that mean nothing?

Because I'm young and I'm in a wheelchair when I go out old people come up to me and say "your too young to be in a wheelchair" it's really starting to piss me off.
Really do you know who bad my osteoarthritis is or the other million health problems that I have and why I use this outside the house to get out and about.

The other smart ass one I get is "are you wheelchair bound" last time I checked my butt wasn't super glued to the decking cushion was it.

That's my peeved off for the week.

Irrational, impossible arguments. When one takes NO responsibility for their thoughts, actions and feelings, and yet accuses me of doing the same RIGHT after I spent ten minutes doing just that.
Effing trapped is how I feel right now. Damned if I do, damned if I don't.

Nothing but violence interspersed by a hackneyed plot.
