This thread is for us to vent regarding the stupid things that bother us. Things that would make people in 3rd world countries want to cuss us out.


I will start:

FWP #1

Had window seat on the flight from LV to SF today, specifically to look at Eastern Sierra from the air.. Refused to go on an earlier flight because no window sit was available. It ended up being cloudy!!!!!! :`(

I like to tell myself I could be on Survivor, but i am a foodie wimp. Take away my sustenance, and I would turn into a bratty 12-year-old.

My car is broken.

My veggies are overcooked.

I'm so full.

My second pair of shoes is wearing out.

Life has dealt me its share of first world problems. But one incident stands out:

A few months ago, I put my brand new Droid 4 in the middle of my pack and climbed up a chimney. Pulled it out to post on the Internets at the top of the route. Alas, THE SCREEN WAS CRACKED!

AND THERE WAS NO 3G AT THE TOP.

The Horror.

The guy I'm currently working with in a prop-shop plays LOUD reggae tunes ALL DAY LONG.

I've listen to reggae for 50 hours this week.

Never been much of a fan of this particular music genre but now, I have to say.

I loathe reggae.

Those curved LED's on the new Audis are distractingly intriguing.

That reminds me Erik, WTF are people thinking with the HID bulbs in their stupid little car headlights?

I think I'll put a super bright light on my car so I can see oncoming traffic. That will make me safer. Nevermind that I'm blinding them in the process...

how come you have to be some sort of rocket scientist mind meld nerd to operate TV/DVR satellite remotes?

And how come websites have to change their layout every 6 months or so, so you can't find anything?

and how come cars are so damn complicated?


And how come when an automaker designs an engine that works really well, they have to change it 2 years later so that parts don't match and the new engine doesn't work as well as the old one.. substitute engine with every other auto part.

Actually Ron, nobody in the U.S. knows how to use them. Other countries seem to have figured them out.

Well one thing that bothers me is arrogance. Specifically when someone is soo arrogant that they call a woman they never met a "slut".

You owe Jona an apology!
