    People complaining about theads. And browsers. And music vids. And particular songs. And bases opinion on 'chances'. And discussing clutter.

    Blame the opioid crisis, it's unreal what kind of nonsense people get up to just to make a few bucks, ends up costing retailers a ton of money, and then coming back to people like you and me with increased prices and rules like giving driver's license info. They need to establish a pattern of the same D/L returning stolen items, or etc. Dishonest people always ruin things for everyone else!

    I interviewed for an assistant manager position for a regional convenience store chain. There was enough pet peevery there to write a book including being made to wait almost 20 minutes for my interview. However, I digress.

    Customers were "guests." Cashiers were "hosts" and "hostesses." This highfalutin hot shot regional boss was in there telling me how the company's priority wasn't to make money, but to make "the guest" happy. Oh, by the way, the job of a "host" or "hostess" was more important than his job! If the owners called him and said either he had to go or a "host" or "hostess" had to go, he would tell them to fire him because he didn't know the "guests" as well, and "guests" are a priority. Okay, if it's not important to make money, and my satisfaction is more important, send me home with enough fried chicken and biscuits to last me a month! :naughty:

    When people try to defuse an inflammatory comment, obviously meant to annoy or offend, by posting a bunch of smiley dudes. That doesn't make what you said funny. If you want to piss somebody off, either do it and suffer the consequences or don't bother at all.

    There was no intent other than some (apparently) poor humor on my part. I'm sorry.

    No worries. I'm on kind of a short fuse lately. Probably not a good time to be posting in the "pet peeves" thread. I'm sorry too.

    I didn't read 196 pages, but if for some reason it hasn't been mention it's the assholes who empty the breakroom coffee pot and don't brew a fresh one for the next guy.

    NextDoor neighborhood forums used to be kinda useful to keep up with local topics, alerts, get togethers, helping neighbors out.

    Now, it's just getting plain weird with bizarre, kooky, paranoid replies to noises, strange cars, airplane contrails, loose dogs, pet stealing hawks.

    I feel like King Arthur in Monty Python's Holy Grail...Camelot....no, its a silly place.

    That no matter how bad things get, some dumb ass always makes things worse and actually thinks he’s making things better.

    I think it's great to see you and Shom, acting like adults, and publicly sharing each other's POV with apologies to boot. :thumbsup: So many tend to carry on with a verbal feud, whereas they should be going to "message" to settle their differences.

    This is what makes AK great and stands above some of the other sites!
