Default Rant Thread - What really grinds your gears?

This thread idea is not new, but a great thing to have around!

Need to blow off some steam? Have at it!

I'll start.

I'm sick and tired of the way my employer, "The State" handles promotions, pay, and extras, etc (for example, the window cube that opens up).

Nevermind how hard you work, or how much work you do while you're peers sit around and do nothing. Nevermind how well you know your job. Nevermind the initiative you take or the fact that you actually care about your users.

All that matters is "time in service".

It's so depressing and kills any motivation to try to do as well as you know you should and could. Because while you're kickin' butt, the guy next to you who does nothing (and knows NOTHING about his job), gets the promotion because he "qualifies" - since he's been around for years. Of course, he still comes to you for help with everything he DOES get assigned to do. But, he doesn't share that fat paycheck.

...and that, ladies and gentlemen, is what grinds my gears.

When I was in kindergarten I wanted to be a big kid
In elementary school I wanted to be in middle school
In middle school, I yearned to be a high schooler
In high school I couldn't wait for college

All this time I just wanted TIME to fly by and my biggest gripe now is that 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week isn't enough time to get all my work done, let alone have some fun.

I am a prisoner of time and yesterday just dropped the soap.

has anyone noticed that the new live messenger installer crashes left right and centre?? i've tried using amsn but now that is crashing too! and i know pidgin is out there (i've used it on ubuntu) but that just doesn't have the same cool GUIness of live messenger (or amsn to a lesser extent). I'd be a happy chappy if only amsn worked! i mean amsn does all the same stuff as live messenger!

Well, I can't feel ya on that particular program, but I am indeed familiar with shit that crashes all the time, and I feel that!

(I work for the state.)

But, yeah I use Pidgin. Except for it's DAMN INABILITY (for some reason unknown to the rest of the world) to flash the title bar and taskbar window when a new message comes in, I like it.

yeah i feel that problem, the only way you are aware of a new message is when u leave the sounds on (the most annoying sounds ever). More then once i've been chatting to someone while watching a youtube vid only to notice the little orange speach bubble after a while and when i click back to the convo it's basically:

so what do you think?

...

so please pidgin make the message notification a little more visually obvious (but not obtrusive, just something like every other IM client). And actually spice up ur GUI a tad (instead of looking like a native windows 98 app or an early xp app)

Bah! Some days I wonder why I would ever choose to develop with Microsoft technologies.

Stupid SharePoint API doesn't allow you to access list fields by internal name. You can get them by display name, though. How friggin' stupid is that? Any user with Contribute access to the list can change the Display Name. Internal name is set and uneditable...well, at least to the common user. Wouldn't it make more sense to use an identifier that CAN'T CHANGE?!??!

This is typical of them. Come up with a great idea like SharePoint, but fail to put some common sense into the API.

I won't even get started on the SDK that had all of 2 tech writers working on it (as you can guess, it's not very in depth).

Oh...I remember why I picked MS...I hate JAVA and C++. Unfortunately, I'll have to pick up JAVA again so I can tinker with my Dream.

The teachers I had for JAVA and C++ were useless. The JAVA and C++3 teacher wouldn't provide any help when asked. I would go to him with questions about JAVA assignments and he would ask what I thought should be done? Well, I already tried what I THOUGHT, jackass, that's why I'm here.

My C++2 teacher was a Chinese woman who literally used another professor's syllabus/lesson plan. She even had the audacity to leave that teacher's name on all of the presentation materials. Talk about lazy.

I ended up failing JAVA because I couldn't get the projects done on time (I was taking C++3, senior project class where I did all of the development, and ASP.NET class). Thankfully the department head let me take a DB class at another school to count as a credit. :P

It's rather nice that Visual Studio does a lot of the menial tasks for me. I shouldn't have to hand-code control signatures or ASP.NET control markup.

How a teacher expects their students to do work when they can't FORGE their own lesson plans. Talk about reverse plagiarism... SHEESH!

By the way... It was kind of on the cool side today and I'm not looking forward to winter. Although, I cursed the heat during the depths of summer. The grass is always greener... right?

Your grass is greener in the winter?

It's a lot easier to get warm than it is to cool down.

Dish Network employs call centers overseas. That's not exactly a revelation, but it really sucks when they don't even understand what programming they offer.

I was trying to order NHL Center Ice yesterday. The first time I called, I went through all the crap and the guy told me I couldn't order it until 10.10. Uh...NO!! I know plenty of people who have. In fact, that's the last day for the early registration. He probably thought that is what the date meant.

The second time I just had to repeat "NHL Center Ice" 5 times, but at least that guy finally found it. Then, I ask the question about what the channels for CI are. He just tells me 1 channel. I'm pretty sure it's several channels, but he swore it was one. Well, how am I supposed to get up to 40 LIVE games a week with only one channel?! 2 games (at most) per night times 7 only equals 14. So, my guess is that there is more than one channel.

I've never taken a computer class in my life; I've learned everything from Z80 assembler and Forth to C++ and Java strictly through self-study. After all, you can't go back to college every time a new language comes out! But I admit that's doing it the hard way.

(I take it back, I took a Pascal lab once. Utter waste of time, learned more on my own, which is why I forgot about it. Anyone remember Pascal?)

But if we're ranting, bad teachers are one of my pet peeves. From what I hear from my kids it sounds like they do very little in school any more but watch movies and make collages of American History... we're so doomed.

I also don't get the Guitar Hero thing, being an actual real-world musician... my stepson loves the game so I asked him if he'd like a real Fender Strat and amp for Christmas. Naah, not interested, he'd rather play the game.

Who has an automobile? My ride's all-electric. I don't buy gas at all. Get with the 21st century, people!

Thought of one more. People on Gizmodo and sites like that who breezily talk about simply waiting until they can get hacked versions instead of paying for apps.

Wow. You would sell your honor for only $3.99 or so? That's cheap.

What grinds my gears ...

In Washington D.C ... Elliot Spitzer got away with usin' Federal funding for his prostitution addiction. It caused the Madame that ran the place to kill herself and I'm sure, tarnished the lives of others.

Just 'cause Obama pulled out a land slide victory, you still have racist haters attackin' minorities ...

And lastly ... it's Friday, I've been at work since 7am on a conference call with the UK office and they didn't have the decency to buy me breakfast.

Broke bastids!

Generally having to go to work.

And also when you say to someone "i have no money" and they come back with "oh come on it's only 5".....what point do people not get the fact that when you say "i have no money" it doesn't mean you actually do?

People who bash an operating system they have never used to just try and get geek points. (I have never used Mac OSX and never bash it, but i know people that bash say Linux and have never used it).

Did you read about how when G. W. Bush and Obama first met, Bush used hand sanitizer after shaking hands with the young upstart. Obama said Bush then offered O some, which he accepted in order to be polite.

Now that ... minced my gears!

Yeah, sure she killed herself...

What grinds my gears is greed. I'm SICK of government officials and Wall Street assholes running the world into the ground. I'm sick of going to home depot, looking for a GOOD mop (for example) and not being able to find ANYTHING but a cheap Chinese piece of crap made out of plastic with a flimsy pine tree branch for a handle. There's so much cheap shit on the market that you can't find (and pay for) a decent, quality item even if you WANT to.

Remember back in the day how ham was kind of dry and smokey and you actually met with a little resistance when you chewed it? Now you get nothing but a bag of water with a little pork in it, and if you squint really hard, you can make out 'Ham and water product' hidden in the corner of the label. And of course you pay for it by the pound...

Speaking of pork products, this has been true since I was a kid. You buy a can of 'pork and beans'. Anyone ever found any actual pork in one? I never have, except for that TINY little lump of disgusting fat that they toss onto the top of the can just before they seal it.

Anyone noticed how everything gets either smaller or more expensive? Anyone else sick of reading 'some settling of contents may have occurred during shipping' on the side of every unopened half-box of cereal? Anyone been severely burned by a glass pan lid with a metal handle in the center? Anyone remember 'ugly' metal pan lids with a nice high quality heat proof plastic handle?

It should be illegal to sell a product that can barely manage to complete the function for which it was supposedly designed. No matter how mundane that function is.

It should be illegal to sell a product that is obviously NOT what the label says it is, even though it technically meets the strict definition (ie: pork and beans).

Good hockey games that aren't televised where a home team player hits a major milestone. Keith Tkachuk recorded his 1,000th point yesterday in Atlanta, but neither team televised the game.

The market continues to play in oncoming traffic, the auto industry needs $34 billion in relief money, Bush buys $3M home in North Dallas.

I've been quite pleased with our prices lately actually! I filled up, from E, for 21 bucks yesterday.

Seems like just a couple weeks ago it 55-60 a fillup.

I dont remember the last time I could fill up for 21!

(aside from the faint memories of when I was a teen and could fill up for under 15)

My girlfriend getting 200 bucks worth of parking tickets in two weeks time. And then hiding them from me even though the car is under my name and if I got pulled over, I would go to jail.

I hate people who can't walk correctly. It frustrates me when people are oblivious to the fact that they're in people's ways (like standing in front of a doorway for example). Other examples would be 3-4 people walking side by side on a sidewalk or in a hallway and won't let people walking in the other direction through OR they won't let faster walkers coming from behind pass them.

Also, I'm a vegetarian and eat mostly vegan. I hate when people ask me how I get my protein, B12, etc. I'm a fairly big kid, and more muscular than most people who ask me these questions. I eat extremely healthy and people observe that, but they still ask stupid questions about vegetarianism and sometimes debate that I am unhealthy. Ugh...

This post just makes me think of everything that angers me. I get angry with lots of people because it seems like nobody likes to think about anything...ever.
