    False advertising. I used an entire can of Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner to find those guys . . . they weren't in there. :mad:

    It's been 30 years . . . we have advanced technology . . . they STILL aren't in there!

    You know what really grinds my gears? People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch

    Actually, people who use the term "steep learning curve" incorrectly really makes me want to go ape shit crazy. I think 99.99% of the times I see it used it is wrong.

    How slow this site has been the last week or so. Sometimes, it won't even load. I'm not mad at you mods and admins, just frustrated when I can't get my daily fix here! LOL

    it is the fact that everything these days moves at hyperspeed. there is no room for error. everybody is an expert and seems to have audacity to tell you how to do you job when a lot of the time they havent a clue what they are talking about. like someone trying to explain how flash memory works but doesnt know the basics of it.

    people should know what they know and share it honestly instead of BSing their way through it. if you dont acually know it then dont try to act like you do.

    You know what really grinds my gears?!??...

    People who make snarky comments about how fast I walk. It's especially annoying when the women I work with do this because they know I can't say anything smart-ass back since we're in a professional environment. Thus they are both rude AND cowardly.

    These are women that walk so slowly it's painful. They just amble along like they're at the flea market or a county fair or something.

    I, however, have purpose in my stride. I have places to go, things to do. That's just how I am. I inherited The Walk from my father, who wasn't down with BS either.

    But this has happened to me my whole life, not just at the place I currently work. The last time someone was a real a-hole about it I had just gotten off work at the huge hospital I worked at and was walking to the parking deck. THREE freaking people were walking side-by-side blocking almost the entire walkway (one of them was in some sort of prom-looking dress, no less) - plodding along at a snail's pace, talking, totally not paying attention to their surroundings. Finally I passed them after one of them noticed I was behind them and moved to the side a bit. But instead of doing the decent thing and just letting me by like a normal, polite person they made all these passive-aggressive comments loudly behind me. Thankfully, since I'm such a fast walker it didn't take long until I was out of ear range of their BS.

    I should add I've had some good experiences: one time a lady passed me in the hall at the same hospital and called out with much admiration in her voice, "Ah! Another person with a determined walk!" as she sped by. Still one of the coolest things that's ever happened to me. If I could have given that bad-ass lady a pot o' gold I would have.

    Oh, and it also really grinds my gears when men assume that my truck belongs to my husband. Never mind that I know how to drive it and don't drive like a constipated grandma and can parallel park it with one hand (it's an extended cab GMC Sierra, so not the easiest thing in the world), etc. The next person who assumes it's my man's ride is going to get an earful. It's just rude and condescending.

    It's human nature for us to complain. It's nice to 'let off steam' now and then...now if someone does it all the time...man he/she would be an annoying person to hang out with >_>

    Anyone who listens to Soulja Boy and thinks that's hip hop :rolleyes:

    Also people who proclaim that Lil Wayne is the best rapper alive.

    What the f**k is so amazing about hopping out a bed and turning "swag" on?

    Lil Wayne kisses dudes, enough said.

    Where's my old school B.I.G and Snoop!? New hip-hop these days just doesn't nearly amount to the good stuff from the late 80s and early 90s.

    People who think they know everything about everything but when you prove them wrong they don't have the decency to admit their wrongdoing. Pansies.

    Yup, I'm a fan of the 90s personally. Some stuff today though isn't bad but unfortunately it isn't as popular as it should be.

    Another rant: I hate it when these servers take a crap! :p

    Amen lol, screw rehab :D

    jmims try living in Miami, I deal with one one every three minutes :rolleyes: Had one today...I took my mom's truck to get the oil changed. once it was finished I was pulling out of the parking lot onto the main road...the cars were way down the road. So I'm getting up to speed when I look in my mirror and a speeding Honda Element is on the right lane closing on me fast and sure enough he's on my bumper in no time just inches away. What do I do? I let off the accelerator and coast slowly ;)

    I'm gonna go ahead and say driving in Miami doesn't compare to driving in NYC lol

    I hate my job. And here's why.

    I hate it when people can't be bothered to read a sign. "Entertainment Book coupons valid Monday through Thursday"? Nope, they give me one on a Friday night and then demand to see my supervisor when I can't accept it. Or even worse. The name of the restaurant is "Zacks Hotdogs" For the love of god people, don't come in and ask for cheeseburgers and pizza. I don't have them. Oh, and when you come in 5 minutes before I close and I tell you I can only serve hotdogs, do NOT demand that I make you chicken tenders and fries. I told you when you walked in the door that my fryer is off for cleaning. And I swear to god, if one more person has a fit about "not wanting a f***ing hotdog" I'm gonna punch somebody. They walked into a specialty hotdog store, but they're not even willing to consider eating a hotdog? Oh, and we lock the doors promptly at 9 (or 10 on the weekends). Do not try to open the doors at 9:03 (or 10:03). Our hours are clearly posted on the front door. If you happen to come by exactly as I'm closing, and you see me locking the door, don't tell me to wait. I will not. Do not complain about my fountain being out of order. I told you when you asked that it was down and we were getting a new one, and that you could have a bottle out of the cooler for no extra charge. I can't magically make Pepsi come out. Or Mountain Dew. Have a bottle of Coke or Mello Yello and STFU. Oh, and if you're one of the annoying people that come in at 9:59 and want to eat your food in the restaurant, that's fine. We won't kick you out. But we will lock the doors so that you have to ask to be let out. We're not kidnapping you, so don't throw a fit. And if you don't like the music coming over the PA, I'm sorry. We don't have a radio. Deal with what's on the iPod. And if you happen to do something nice for us, like telling us when someone's trying to steal something, or cleaning up the condiment bar, we will not give you a free bag of chips. Don't cuss out the supervisor. And we are not a full service restaurant. This means come get your food when we call it out, and throw your own damn trash away.

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

    Unless I'm missing something (and I've read the manual top to bottom) I don't see a way of saving locations. You'd think that would be a seriously basic thing to be able to do? Is there something I'm missing??

    I hate countless Apple vs Android discussions, because rather than becoming objective comparisons it becomes an argument between fanboys. I'm tired of Apple fanboys bashing Android, and I'm tired of Android fanboys bashing Apple. You know what I'm talking about, the "APpLe SuCkS tHeY dOn'T dO aNyThInG bEtTeR iDk WhY aNyOnE eVeN bUyS tHeM" crap. The two platforms can coexist people!

    I hate my job and the fact that there are a ton of awesome video games out right now that I should be getting paid to sit on my @$$ at home to play instead of running finance and productivity reports for 24 hospitals... :-/
