    No problem. We went to dinner this evening. Every response from the server included “No problem”. She was pleasant and did an acceptable job, but I only noticed one or two minor problems, only one of which was her use of the praise No problem. Considering that we were at Red Lobster I would even have preferred a cheesy ‘Aye, Aye matey!”

    I think “No problem” has been mentioned before in this thread, but sheesh! Enough already!

    I don't mind "no problem". I use it myself, although hopefully not to excess. All it conveys to me is a cheerful willingness to serve, and really, what more can you ask for, especially at a Red Lobster?

    Now if you want to get me going, we can discuss "I could care less". Yech.

    Well Sauder has furniture like that with similar construction sequence and the instructions are clear.Being in Germany you may have found an off brand with poor illustrations.

    I always wear out the right hand work glove. I end up with bunch of left handed ones gathering dust. I am only getting half the money's worth. :idea:

    I have also assembled many such items, with little to no problems at all. Usually the parts are marked A,B,C and so on, and the dimensions and amount of the screws is also noted.

    This brand SUCKS!

    I´ll assemble it, we ordered it about a month ago, so returning it would be hard, and it´s very heavy and the packaging is destroyed.

    I already drilled a few holes in the right places and used my own screws; I´ll post a pic of the thing when I´m done.

    Being LEFT handed for some things makes life a peeve at times, esp for using scissors...and some other right handed implements/furniture.

    Before my left-handed father passed away, we used to swap extra work gloves.

    When I try to explain to someone that I'm colorblind and then they want to know what every color around us looks like to me, or
    the guy that thinks because I'm colorblind I can't see color. doh.gif

    And LEARN what merging safely means!
    I know, some think we suppose to slow down for them, when in reality they suppose to speed up to merge! dash1.gif

    I've got a lot of these I reckon from being a truck driver too dad-burn long.
    Guys that have "I gotta be in front syndrome."
    The guys that drive with an ego bigger then their vehicle, "Get outta my way I'm the most important person out here!"
    People on my Donkey when I'm doing the speed limit or even a little above it in the slow lane, Just general self centeredness . guntohead.gif

    Conversely and to @Pioneered's point, guys that speed up to keep you from merging in front of them but not enough that you can safely get behind them (just speeding up so "their" place on the road isn't challenged) need to die in a fire.
