    Migraines. Had the worst one I have ever had today. It was so bad I was throwing up and had really wonky vision in my right eye.

    My doctor feels our treatment regimen isn't working anymore and I will go see him next week because I was 140 miles away.

    That said, understand that here in Utah, you can purchase a permit that allows single drivers to use the carpool lanes. So some of us use the lane legally. Just sayin'

    People who on the interstate. Who looks like they are going to pass you fast. Then when you need pass there is the Idiot doing your speed and at your rear quarter panel. Then you have to slow down. When you get behind them then they speed off.

    One of my coworkers got busted for being in a carpool lane all on her lonesome. She pulled over for the cop, and also got busted for going over the double yellow to get out of the carpool lane. Needless to say, she won't be using that lane alone again.

    Do you need to place a sticker of some sort on your car? Otherwise that seems kinda silly. How would an officer of the law know if you are legit or not? I know in CA there are stickers provided for low emissions vehicles. They go on the left, right, and center of the bumper. They are so gaudy that most people would rather not use them, I think.

    It is called "Express Pass" and you use a little transponder.

    USPS lost the item that I sent to a buyer. She received an opened envelope with nothing inside. Bad USPS. Lost item claim filed and hoping for the best!

    Carl's Jr . . . I say "This is a to-go order" or "this order is to go" and the last thing they ask me is "Is this to stay or to go?"

    That actually reminds me, at the McDonalds drive through I order just one Big Mac, they then proceed to badger me to death and try to sell me several other items I never asked for. "Would you like some fries with that?". "Would you like something to drink?". "Can we offer you a hot apple pie?" Eh, no, if I wanted anything else I would have asked for it, thanks though.

    Idiot buyers who accuse me of fraud for not shipping an item even though they received confirmation that the item was damaged or unsealed during transit.

    Nope, Bob rather enjoys Carl and his burger joint. It would be better if it was drive-in with real malts, good fries, and double-cheese burgers like those at the old school A&W.

    Oh, and most important, car hops on skates, with tight sweaters, and legs to die for. Also, a classic car night where real cars that burn real gas, with whitewall tires and big engines are given preferential treatment as God intended.

    American cars only, please.

    By the way, I do not mean Carl in a sweater, that is just silly.

    So the cop has to scan your car if he only sees one person in it?

    Not sure... never saw a cop or thought much about the process. All I know is we have never been pulled over, just glared at by those stuck in the slow lane, breathing fumes.

    HAHA I see. That's pretty cool. I figured it worked something like those passes for toll bridges that I had seen in IL. But those you actually have to drive by a reader device. Don't think they have anything cool like that in CA, but they should!

    Anyway, suppose I should actually contribute to the thread.

    Every time I get a phone call for people booking an appointment I ask if they know where we're. The almost all always say yes. Then I get the phone call asking where we are located minutes before their appointment.
