    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.

    As used in a different thread, the term "life hack" bothers me. As a computer professional (and hobbyist before I earned my degree), I guess the new use of the word "hack" is what annoys me, as it seems to draw on the idea of computer hacking and not cutting, bad reporting nor taxi-cabs.

    Heloise simply called them hints.

    Oh, if where going to get into words and there use that bothers us I have a couple of big ones that really anger me when some dolt comes up to me and uses them.
    First ones "DUDE", does anyone one know the real meaning of this, in the day we referred to the inexperienced riders as Dudes, Green Horns, etc. Every time some one calls me this I look around and back at them and say, "No DUDES here!"
    The second one is "Bro" ,"Brother" and the way it's said. I'm not your BRO! and I'm not your Brother! and most the time I thank God I'm not when I'm approached and referred to this.
    Just irritates me to the point of wanting to punch the idiot right in the face. I don't know why, just does.

    Reminds me of ads back in the '60s for Admiral living color televisions, which we could only watch on our cruddy little B & W Sony portable.

    Pop-up videos. If I want to listen to what they have to say I'll click the video, It's especially irritating if music is being played from the computer while I'm cruising the net and someone starts babbling over the music.

    Side note: interesting how close cruising the net and cursing the net is.
