Something seems wrong about this
Murphy's Law and all its corollaries.
When nobodys online.
When people come into the post office & expect the person waiting on them to box up the item they are trying to mail. I mean when you go out to dinner do you expect your server to cut your steak ? Come on people... :banghead:
Well if its a really good restaurant they should.
You do if you are under 12...... but then again, you shouldn't be ordering streak of you are under 12
I box but don't seal if the package has to clear customs somewhere. I do bring tape once the form is filled out correctly.
Jersey shore+MTV in general..what happened to the music?
Christmas Traffic! You'd think it was Black Friday all over. Everyone is in a total hurry, bitchy, and squabbling over parking spaces.
Parking is another story. Someone thinks another car is pulling out and wants the space. The waiting car will hold up the whole lane until the parked car leaves, even if it takes 15 minutes. Meanwhile, all other traffic is blocked up. No one can get to the end of the row which has open spaces but might be a block away. A walk is good for the soul.
I had to cope with that yesterday, plan to avoid it today if at all possible.
My big rant: I will not have a usable kitchen sink until Monday and have a full dishwasher PLUS at least a third of a second load needing to be washed. Plunging didn't work (for either of the maintenance guys), drain cleaner didn't work, and maintenance won't have a usable snake until Monday.
I can sympathize with that. I lived in an area with a water problem (lack of) and the town would turn off the water with no warning, and no notice of when it would be back. A real pain if I had just started washing a load of clothes. We'd have to go down to the creek with barrels and drag up water to flush the john.
When the water came back on, it was usually pure mud.
My apartment has a messed up water heater or bad water lines... or something! My water temperature changes about 5 times when I'm taking a shower.
It's really annoying.
When you spend ages typing a detailed response to someone on the forums and hit post reply only to realise your internet went down and you lost the post
HATE THAT SO VERY MUCH!
I have gotten in the habit of copying my whole post before hitting send just in case
So have i but every know and again i forget and suprise suprise your internet stops working
Copy it, paste it into notepad and leave notepad open.
I use Tapa, it saves it as a draft usually. So I usually don't lose my post.
On the parking note: Since when did people get so lazy they can't even walk a few feet? Ugh.
Ye I now no wonder everyone is suffering from obesity.
You know what grinds my geas. Being an adult! Ugh! I hate grown up responsibility. I do em cause i haveta. Anywho? That's what grinds my geas....
I'm usually on the laptop. Hence Notepad.
If someone is really pushing me about a parking spot, I've been known to get out of the truck, relock the doors and go for a walk. There's usually another store I can visit, and I like to walk. I don't wait for parking myself. I'll use the end of the row. Nine times out of ten I'm in the store faster than the idiot who was waiting. If you are that incapable of walking - get a handicapped sticker. Don't honk the horn at me to hurry up, especially if you are too damn close for me to back out! Those are the ones I'll walk off from.
