    Weather forecasters who are smarmily disappointed at a prediction of rain, even though the snowpack was gone a month ago, the creeks are already dry, the lake's low, the well is verging on empty, the last three summers have featured lengthy dry spells ... and it's not even June yet.

    The weather people around here are mediocre at best. Their long range predictions are about as accurate as using a dartboard. They never say they screwed up. This past winter they forecast a blizzard coming into our area. Nothing happened. The next day they said that the air was so dry that the snow evaporated before it hit the ground. A whole blizzard evaporated?

    Especially at the end of passing lanes on mountain roads. The car in front of you that has been doing 40 in a 50 zone for the last 10 miles speeds up to 55 when there is a passing lane and the cop nails you at the end of it doing 65+ trying to get past them before the lane ends and they slow back down to 40.

    Spring ahead sucks. Let's fall back and stay there. I don't need to harvest my crops. :)

    And if for those that do need to harvest them they can just get up an hour early; why make everyone else do it too?

    I'm working on an exterior painting/staining job for an an older couple, and when I got there the other day the lady asked if I would get up on a ladder and checkout her downspouts. I guess at one corner rain was pouring over the eaves and right into the AC unit. No problem, it was most likely plugged up at one of the elbows.
    For the love of all that is right, why do people put the downspouts together and then put them in place, WITH THE SCREWS ON THE BACKSIDE, up against the wall?!
    Is this some sort of insider joke with installers? :eek:

    Years ago my kid took a gymnastics class once a week for toddlers. Age 2-4, basically. One time I took her my grandparents happened to be in town for a visit, so I brought them along.
    The gym was located in an old grocery store building(probably Safeway) in a strip mall, and used about 3/4 of the building. The other part was used by Canada Post.
    Between their vehicles, their employee's vehicles, and the absolute organizational mess of the parking lot, it was really tough to find a spot. It often looked like your pic, but all over the place. When we found a spot and started walking up, my grandfather said, "These cars aren't parked, they're abandoned".

    Where I live some park like that, WITH the yellow line in the dead centre of the car. ( I'm sure they get out and measure just to make sure they have an exact overlap)

    Poorly designed web pages where just moving one's mouse from Point A to Point B results in a cascade of unwanted drop down menus.

    I always thought those were very cleverly designed to do that for the express purpose of annoying the user.
