    What about being sent an email and then having the person come to your cubicle 4 seconds later, asking if you got the email and then telling you what was in the email?

    LOL when I am visiting home my mom does that. She LOVES forwarding pics. She sends me the pics, hears the notification on my phone, and asks me if I got the pics, all the while telling me to come look on her computer -_-

    You know what grinds my gears? those stupid ass vampire movies... Since twighlight has been out. Everyone and their damn mother has been cashing in on these ******ed prettyboy vampire movies and tv shows that the vampire genre has been turned to shait. Remember the original lostboys? Or that one movie with james woods? Oyeah! Vampyres... People have forgotten what true vampirism is about. Not these sorry ken and barbie vampire movies....anyways, that's what grinds my gears....

    That single line has brightened my day more than you can imagine. People need to remember that vampires are serious business.

    I very much want to make a shirt, but know I will not.

    Like Grandpa Munster was any better?

    Lon was the definitive vampire on the big screen and Barnabus was the best TV vampire, with zero doubt.

    The Munsters and the Addams family were sitcoms - no stupid romantic interest.

    Kept asking where the hell Buffy was when we did need her after the stupid Twilight crap.

    The book by Bram Stoker was far better than any movie.

    Saw a commercial for the new vampire movie with Colin Ferrel where the vampire's actually a wicked fiend - it's a teen flick, too. Maybe the vampire trend will curve back where it's supposed to be.

    Today: The Google Nav chick and I exchanged some real hostile language in atl least two languages. And now I can't sleep, since my mother somehow just knows that I broke out with the Italian cursing while pulling an illegal u-ey in rush hour and will rebuke me for it on Sunway when I have to hear the Skype broad chitter in my ear at 1000 decibles.
    Stupid Google Skank. Nasty Skype tramp.

    When you talk to someone on the phone who just doesn't get it. You explain something 3 different ways and you can almost hear their brain sending out the signal 'does not compute'.

    When I learn of an unofficial app from a source and have that same source stop me from discussing that app on their forums. Hypocritical critics know who they are!

    Life grinds my gears.

    Plus the way people seem to get dumber by the day. And this is coming from a person that works at a restaurant. What's the matter, you freaking stupid? Can't you read what's on the menu? Why the hell would you order something off menu/from another place?

    People that just don't use their brains and feel that they have all the right to cry when something doesn't go their way.

    Some cooks can never properly prepare a soft boiled egg, so back it goes. And when they finally get it right, I swear I see boogers.

    I give great credit to restraunt people; hard work for thankless morons. Dont know how you do it.

    My policy is to always be nice to cops and cooks (via the servers and nice to them, as well).

    They have all the power to make you miserable. I'm nice to them to a fault. ;)

    Get a steamer. They work. Kid was too lazy to iron her shirts, but would steam them. She quit looking like a ragpicker after I bought the steamer.

    I make most of my shirts and they don't need ironing.

    I hate video instructions! You can't pick a place to stop and start if you want a repeat, you have to rewind. Especially You tube instructions. You also can't print out the pertinent pieces to keep as a reference.

    Software sometimes will have chapters, and that's a tad better but you still can't print.

    I want to prune mini-roses. There are videos but those are no help. Finally found a book, will scan the page I need, and put it near the roses so it's always handy.
