    The media still publishes articles about celebrities who get COVID, I never cared about the first one, give it up.

    If you get poached or head-hunted and that causes you to quit a job on perfectly decent terms, but then your employer decides that your last date needs to be ____ because reasons (benefits continuation) and that inevitably means that your final pay will have like 250 hours worth on it because you had a bunch of vacation and banked time.
    Cool. Here's several thousand dollars for Hair Justin to borrow for 10 months because let's treat one paycheque pay check (you're welcome @Buster ) like as if 25 more of those were normal amounts.
    Eat a fuckin dick!

    So I've heard...

    Skip/DD/UE guys who can't read fuckin' house numbers. I know the bar for entry is low but come on.

    Twice this week some butthead rang my doorbell and left food I didn't order. Today I caught the guy and flagged him as he was trying to dash. He took his shit back to his elantra, put it in the trunk (yes, the trunk), and then stood there looking absolutely befuddled. A few minutes of this goes by while I'm watching him through the blinds like an old lady, and my neighbour from a few doors down walks up to collect his soggy burger and coke. And the thing his, his numbers are fuckin' huge, easy 12", full contrast (but not backlit, so maybe Ekliptix is onto something there...!)

    Dude, does this 3 look like a 2? Are you blind? Did you even try? Thought you'd just stop at the first house that has a few similar numbers and be like "oh well, guess this is it! Job well done!" and now I gotta be responsible for this burger? You got a job to do man and neighbour-guy needs his Harveys! Get it together!

    Companies selling products that don't accomplish their intended purpose. I don't mean scam items/snake oil, I mean a product sold as doing "x" and it literally can't accomplish it's purpose for being built.

    So far, a mitre box that doesn't fit 4" baseboard, like wtf? I bought it about a year or two ago and forgot about it, needed to use it yesterday. Did not occur to me to check if it would work with a super common baseboard size. And a laminate floor cutter that does not have a FLAT backstop to keep the piece you are cutting straight. Seriously, it wasn't a one off, all the stock was like this, it was beyond useless, it fucked my shit up. Big mad.

    People that drive fast in parking lots. This has got to be one of the stupidest and most pointless things.

    Parents who don't teach their kids to ring their bell on their bike when they are about to pass people on a pathway and let them do whatever they want.

    I swear they are just as bad as dog owners.

    Youtube reviews/comparos on winter vehicle performance where they bring out vehicles wearing completely inadequate or incomparable tires.

    Seriously. What is wrong with you people.

    Same goes for off road reviews where they bring out vehicles with street tires.

    Likewise a winter tire comparison where they use several different SUV's that have completely different AWD systems.

    I’m not even convinced these people understand how stupid their reviews are when they don’t correct for the obvious.

    This drives me nuts. In the underground parking lot at my office people cruise like 20-30kmph when they are leaving all the time.

    They're just trying to finish the frustratingly difficult tutorial.

    My wife just got her first Macbook. WTFFFF is with the magsafe charger? The plug is massive and the sticks out over 2" from the wall ffs. It's also at a terrible angle so you can't plug it into a powerbar.

    Apple Power Adapter Extension Cable https://a.co/d/eDb4UxU

    Better solution is I just have these around the house, no power supply required.

    People who don't clean out the office microwave after their food explodes everywhere forcing me to write a passive aggressive note and taping it to the microwave.

    Good news, it worked and the microwave was cleaned within ~1hr.
    Ok Pam.
