    When you get home and realize you accidentally bought bone-in chicken breasts. I mean it was easy enough to pull off the bones before I cubed them for my butter chicken, but still, why the fuck do bone-in breasts exist?!

    Because some dudes just love to put their bone, in breasts.

    People who cook frozen pizzas directly on the oven rack with no tray.

    In another note, people who bring frozen pizzas to a get-together
    Don't they specifically tell you to do that, if you want a crispier crust?

    You can buy pans that give you a crispier crust, without the cheese mess at the bottom of the oven.

    Kijiji. They're always fucking with their site, changing shit that doesn't need to be changed, and it never improves the experience. I don't know what they're doing over there. You'd think that once in a while one of their changes would make things go a lot nicer, but it's always just a different kind of whatever.

    I think some of the changes they're trying to do are better, but man they're doing such a bad job of it. I got a response from a guy who was answering a question I didn't even send, so I think their messaging system is mixing notifications up.

    What I don't get is they're owned by eBay, so why can't they just leverage some of their existing features for some of the basic functionality they're trying to implement?

    When someone who comes over to look at something you're selling and they tell you in person they will "get back to you for sure tonight" and then they don't. Then you realize later they are the type of person to just say that to avoid saying they aren't interested, as if it was going to hurt your feelings or something.

    I had an experience like this, only I was the buyer. Motorcycle wasn’t as advertised and in general didn’t fit the bill of what I was looking for. I told him that straight up, thanks for taking the time to show it to me, but it’s just not what I’m looking for. Guy (younger pinoy) got all pissed off saying I wasted his time and what’s he supposed to do for money now. It was almost as though he had gone and spent a wad of cash counting on me giving him a couple grand that night before he had the sale.

    Any piece of technology that has a feature that works only intermittently. I'd much rather get tech with fewer features if they could make them work 100% of the time.

    Like my podcast app. It usually autostart my podcast when I get in my car, and stops it when my car shuts off. That's fine, but about 25% of the app doesn't save my progress, so I end up either re-listening (and being annoyed) or I have to manually skip through the podcast to find the place I was at (and being annoyed).

    If I had to manually start and stop it every time, I would be totally fine with that.

    Have you tried the google music for podcasts? I listen to 1 or 2 a week and have never had an issue with it playing in the truck

    Can you pause it before you shut the car off?

    People at off leash parks in Calgary, seems to bring out the real entitled crazies in droves.

    I am trying to imagine a place I would like to be less than an off-leash park in Calgary in the winter. At least the shit is all frozen, I guess.

    You aren’t fucking wrong, makes it worthwhile to drive into the mountains and at least take in some scenery.

    The best off-leash parks are the ones that are unfenced. Keeps a lot of the worst dogs and owners away.
