    Let's back up! That's a lot to unpack, right there. The optics aren't too good on that one. Will you be able to seize the moral high ground if you do that?

    I think I've cited this one before, but it bears repeating ... "needs repaired". It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

    I've been checking into that 'new' neighborhood based social media site "Nextdoor" to keep up with local issues and topics.

    What pisses me off is the ability of regular users to delete threads they created with unlimited rights/duration.

    There have been several posts asking for help or recommendations, and dolts think that because *their* question was answered, they need to delete the thread as no to 'clog up' the forums.

    All trace of the help or recommendations are then lost to everyone else.

    AMEN! Attempting to design an engineered solution to peoples lack of situational awareness and common sense is a hopelessly flawed exercise. Doing so may help in some situations but, overall, will prove to encourage more of the same poor basic driving skills. The folks that must rely on those systems should take the bus or simply stay home. Please!

    . I’ll second that!

    How about when you go to a bar, domestics are $2 for happy hour, order a Sam Adams, and get charged $7?
    I guess I thought I knew what domestic meant....

    Come to Germany :)
    A case of 20 half liter bottles of Becks or Haake Beck costs maybe 12 to 15 Euros.

    My favorite, no-name beer (which tastes great) costs a whopping €6.40 a case:):beerchug:

    From now on when you see "domestic beer" think thin, light yellow fizzy water, from one of the US mega-brewers. You'll be reasonably safe in selecting a domestic that way.

    "Das ist ein gutes idee". :D

    Driving around the Nurburgring is on the bucket list.... and cheap alcohol is a bonus.
    Saving up now. Would also love to see some German hifi events... with a bier in hand of course. :)

    When you list and item on eBay with plainly described where pick up is of the item and you will still get not one but multiple people asking where pick up is.

    And after answering the first one and posting that on the item they just keep on asking

    People who trying to get into the elevator before letting people get a chance to come out.

    Been here for 32 years now; wouldn´t want to live anywhere else.

    The weather could be better up here in the north, though ;)

    Rain, rain and more rain. You do get used to it somehow.

    Probably mentioned before...

    At an intersection, drivers that feel the need to have 6 blocks traffic-free, both directions, before they dare pull out.

    People who cause backups at 4 way stop intersections by trying to wave people though when it’s clearly their turn to go.
    People who come to a dead stop at a roundabout, turn on their blinker, and look BOTH ways when there’s no traffic in said roundabout.
