    Edison. How can someone on the phone insist I have electricity when I've been sitting in the dark all day. Call the neighbors. They been sitting in the dark all day too. Some days I just feel the need to thin the herd.

    I really hate it when you click on a link just as the page refreshes causing you to click on something else. then return to the page and find the link you wanted is no longer there.

    Was at Wal-Mart today picking up a few things only to see this person had his trucked parked in a way that took up 4 spots (wasn't in a handicap area).

    Now early in the morning or during a time when no one is there, who cares. But mid day Saturday that's just uncalled for.

    Was the handicap full?

    Any way, That is when you park right in front of them and hope someone parks right behind them.

    Stubborn people, and the fact that they cannot realize their stubbornness & childish behavior. I guess it flows with the "I'm not stubborn, and you can't make me admit it....." saying.

    Drama queens.... Can't stand to listen to one of my nurses griping and complaining about their "hard day". Before asking them to look in my eye and tell me if they see anyone in there that gives a dang I remind them that their stablest, healthiest patient on our oncology unit is probably having a harder day.
    Geeeezzzz!

    what really grinds my gear is drivers turning cutting across your lane causing you to stop several feet from the stop sign to keep from hitting them.

    Have a newish school here in the area. Was a private school, now is a charter school I think. Must be 30-40 signs in the 300 yards of road out front, No Parking, No stopping, No U-Turns, School Zone, etc. Red curb to match. Still gets me riled every day that someone blocks the right hand lane stopped waiting for someone coming out of school. But I guess if you turn on the hazards you are exempt. The lazy kid probably needs the exercise so just drive 50 yards and park in the parking lot or the loading zone.

    Okay, Who in the world determines what size a sock is. I've bought 3 packages of socks in the last month or so. I wear a size 10 shoe. Socks typically 8-10 or 10-12 in sizes, No brainer for me, 10-12 ought to work. 1st package was maybe 10-12 month old kids size, slight exaggeration. 2nd package was size 8 at best. 3rd package was the correct length, but, the circumference of your foot should be the diameter of a banana. And you better have chicken legs. Is corporate greed this bad now that they short sheet socks?
