    People who buy things from me on ebay and claim to have "just opened the box" like a month later. Or several months later, and decide they want a refund. And me not being able to tell them anything but "sure, take my money!"

    I'll just say "traffic".

    To quote George Carlin, anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, anyone driving faster than you is an an asshole. I commute in heavy traffic and I'm surrounded by idiots and assholes.

    I'm at the market today doing the weekly grocery shopping - I've got a medium sized cart load, already on the belt.

    The lines are slow today - no baggers for some reason.

    I've already been waiting 10 minutes, and then I get the 'stink eye' from someone behind me with about 4 items in a basket as if I should just let them go ahead of me. They *must* be more important than me, right?

    Nope.

    That's what express lanes are for!

    I got one. Mother in law's 2015 Buick LaCrosse has a running light out - they call them DRL's, Daytime Running Lights. It's inaccessible, down at the bottom of the bumper, not with all the other lights you can access from inside the hood. The manual discusses the DRLs but doesn't even list it on the chart of bulb numbers nor tell you how to get to it.

    Ah, but the internet! The internet says, turn the wheel all the way to the other side, then remove the wheel well liner. Yep. Using, get this, TWO different sizes of, not regular screwdrivers, but Torx. Yes, two different Torx to get this panel off. Oh, I forgot to mention, you ALSO need a 7 mm socket wrench for one of the bolts. :rolleyes:

    In contrast, my sister's 2005 Volvo. You open the hood, pull out what looks like a tent stake, and the whole light assembly pulls out from the front, giving easy access to each bulb screwed into the back of it.

    :rant:

    Ahh technology. My friend has an SUV with LED tail lights. Well one of the "strings" of LEDs was out. The entire tail light was still about 75% lit, just a stripe around the edge was out. She got pulled over for a tail light out. That's the kind of small-town cops we have. I have a running joke that if I have a headlight burn out, I'll get pulled over that day. Every time. I get pulled over for random dumb shit about every third month.

    I have been pulled over twice in my own driveway, and I have also come home to find parking citations on cars in my driveway twice. Citations for blocking the 200-year old broken, crooked, flagstone sidewalk that NOBODY uses. Ever. I live on a rural street with like 3 houses on it. The sidewalk doesn't even GO ANYWHERE. It goes like two parcels north and stops in an abandoned field. Yet they won't let me remove the sidewalk either.

    So my peeve in this post is the gaggle of Barney Fife's we have around here.

    Makes my stalking much easier! LOL!!! I just kinda think it's nice to see these things, or at least two of the three. After all, we are friendly folk with nothing to hide, right?

    I find it exciting knowing that another AKer lives close to me. Or all the different locations around the world. And if you can't be bothered to upload an avatar pic...:rolleyes:

    Digital front pages that don't stand still and don't let you see all the headlines at a single glance. For this particular task, give me plain text any day.

    I guess I should just admit to myself that I've become an old coot.

    I once had a friend who did two things that bothered me.

    He picked his nose in front of me and constantly used the phase, "it's a mute point".

    And what made it more frustrating was the fact that I couldn't say anything as he was my boss.

    OK, one more for the day, eh?

    You hit the shower. All goes well. You reach for the towel. NO towel! All are in the wash. You forgot to check if one was on the rack. At this point you don't know who to hate more!

    A lot of TP gets used at this point.:D

    Quit yer d#%mned smilin'. It happens to the best of us!

  18. This is the fuckassery that I've mentioned before. After work today, as I entered my car, this Wall Of Douchebaggery who parked next to me created a safety hazard for me in leaving.

    For the love of God, understand that there are others who do not have abnormal psychological shortcomings.

    Especially when it's followed by the word family.
