    LOL... I've always wondered at the development of that toilet seat norm... Why do chicks think we like picking it up and putting it back down again any more than they would like to put it down and pick it back up?

    I mean seriously, at least they should acknowledge that we're being GD gentlemanly about it, and be a little gracious... Instead I get yelled at if I forget, like it's some kind of Sacred Genetic Duty I have as a man... WTF is that about?? :D

    I only get mad about it if I get up in the middle of the night and end up sitting on cold porcelain. Otherwise its just not worth getting overly upset about. IMO anyway.

    LMAO... That's pretty much verbatim what my wife said...

    My response was something along the lines of "How is your failure to execute a proper seat check before splashdown *my* fault?"

    It turns out my response was... "Not helpful in advancing the conversation." :p

    Going to a forum about a particular piece of tech and having someone there ripping on it just for sake of argument. All devices have pros and cons, we all know this, if you don't like it go get something else. This includes peoples precious Apple products.

    ^ welcome to the internet ;) (AF excluded - people are nice here)

    Something that grinds my gears - Bad weather, and in turn - people who drive in the bad weather, because mostly they drive poorly.

    My boss adamantly insisting that we do things the hard way. He is INSISTING that four guys share three company vehicles instead of just having three of them using them and the fourth use her own car. Consequently I either waste time unloading and re-loading all my crap into the van every single time I arrive or leave the office or I end up at a client site with someone one else's gear. Or they leave with my gear. And then I have to chase them around town to get my gear back before I can actually do any work. But sharing vehicles makes more sense. I've pointed this out, but logic does not work at all in this situation.

    This! I love taking an historical pattern and using for everyday wear. Sometimes I'll keep the same lines and structure, but make it in a totally non-period fabric, and sometimes I'll go historically accurate so I can play "time traveler" with it too.

    Good for you. Into Gothic? or just a certain era?

    cmybliss Well-Known Member

    I love it all! Gothic is awesome, but not practical for my everyday life in the kindergarten, so I do more mid-Victorian. All those jackets!

    Now to get back on topic: You know what really grinds my gears? Terrible parents who keep having more kids. Seriously, you call the one you already have all sorts of terrible names, and tell them they ruined your life, and then you have another one! JFC! :mad:

    ^ Eeek! Yeah, it's not like those parents are (likely - I'm not really aware of the situation) really helpin' the kids out too much.

    And really, who's fault is it that the parents are with child? ;) (or had the first child for the matter)

    Certainly not the kids. Poor little guys. Makes me sad.

    Parents who make their children feel like crap when the child is not living up to their expectations. Just saw it for the first time at my daughters figure skating. Very sad.

    That's just wrong. These are kids, they should be participating in these activities because they are fun. They should not have to worry about disappointing their parents.

    Having to buy a case for a smart phone that hides the design of the phone and adds bulk because I know I will eventually drop it on some hard surface.

    I generally like how new smart phones look and don't want to hide in a case. I wish phones were made tougher without too much bulk.

    bulk bulk bulk.

    I've seen parents actually strike their kids if the kid didn't win. I always praised my daughter for even getting out and competing. Never cared if she came in first or last, it was the effort.
    I'm not sure who is worse, figure skating moms or hockey moms. I worked at the skating rink for a while and had to deal with both.

    That just pisses me off. Some people should just not be allowed to have kids. These extra curricular activities should be fun for our kids. They should boost self esteem and teach them how to loose gracefully, because we can't win all the time. Instead, we have parents who are living vicariously their children, and making said kids feel bad about themselves.

    People need to try to be better humans. These parents are probably (and unfortunately) screwing up their kids. Those kids could be seeing this and thinking it is normal, acceptable behavior... sad.:(

    People that ask if they can ask you a question. When someone asks me if they can ask me a question I say, "Yes but only one per day" and then walk off.
