    At a drive-thru, when they're trying to upsell you, even after you said "that's everything", and you can't even understand wtf they're saying. If I ask you to repeat yourself the first 3 times, I'm not going to understand the 4th time when you keep using the same monotone, slurred voice.

    "You wannaegis?"

    "Pardon?"

    "You wannaegis?"

    "Sorry, say again?

    "You wanaegis?"

    "..."

    "You wannaegis?"

    "Fine, ok, whatever"

    Turned out to be potato wedges.

    Flat bicycle tires. Seems like I replace a few tubes every year on my fleet.

    Sometimes I have to send stuff in to the lab from the field, and I always send it in 2.5 or 5 gallon pails because the lab refuses to send me a box that the dumb bottles will fit in. Which now that I've said that, that's a pet peeve too. The place that we get the bottles from also makes the boxes, so just get both. Anyway, when you send a package by courier they always measure length, width and height of the package. And every time they measure the length and width of my pail. It's round. I don't know what grade you learn about circles in, but I feel like it's pretty early on. And it pisses the shit out of me.

    Also, when I go get groceries there's this old dingbat at the till that I try to avoid but sometimes I can't. She always tells me whatever I'm buying looks "yummy". First, I'm not 5. No adults should say "yummy" to each other. Second, yeah that's why I got it, fuck off.

    Assuming you are talking about the same Safeway as me. That place is a hole anyways. My wife drives across town to get groceries to avoid it.

    My pet peeve. How hard it has gotten to link gifs in forum posts. Once upon a time quick google get the simple link and go to town. Now everything is hosted in a lame proprietary window which makes it impossible to get the image link.

    How many grocery stores does she drive by when driving across town? If I drove across town to the deep south to get groceries, I'd pass by at least a dozen grocery stores that would be closer to my home.

    Explaining logic and reason to your wife? That’s cute.

    Fuckin kijiji people are the worst. Guy posts an ad, I sent him a message last night. Normally I would just call but there's no phone number in the ad.

    Hey, give me a call tomorrow (Sunday) when you get a chance. I might be at work away from the phone for a bit but leave a message or send me a text and I'll call back as soon as I can. xxx.xxx.xxxx. Thanks.
    And I got this reply.

    Yes it still for sale
    Right on, man. Thanks.

    Environment Canada issuing weather warnings, because "it might get near 30*!"

    Since when is 30* hot in the dry prairies?

    Yesterday was a very good kijiji experience, picked up a still new in original packaging $400 kitchen sink for a half sack of good beers ($27). Guy was offering it for free because he bought it 6 years ago but never got around to putting it in, he saw my reply that I would come over with 6 good beers in exchange for his sink. He said I beat out over 100 enquiries because I actually offered something and that something was beer, good beer, at that. $27 for a $400 sink seems like a win to me.

    $27 six-pack???!!?!?! Dude, you gotta branch out from Liquor Depot. That's some organic, gluten-free Euro pricing shit!

    My pet peeve - expensive beer is too expensive!

    Nah, Oak'n'Vine by SAIT. Wonderful selection, I don't normally pay that much for my beer but it got me a great sink.

    Speaking of pet peeves, why are automobile companies still producing vehicles that don't automatically turn on their running lights when it gets dark? So many people out there driving around with no tail lights on, hell if GM can have this simple feature as standard on all of their vehicles for at least the past 25+ years then the rest of the manufacturers should be able to do it. Sure as hell would take care of the idiots who can't figure out how to do it manually.

    People who miss their exit and reverse down busy highways to take it. You've missed your turn. Accept it, drive ahead, and turn around at the next available. Don't be fucking dumb.

    Maintenance enforcement.

    Sure the court order says you're to repay all fees, charges interest and interest on the above. 43 months of getting charged 40$ a month for "late" payments. (I had custody). On a file that from the start was solely based on lies.

    So they claim they owe me 95$. 43months x 40$/month 138$ just in interest just on their debtor summaries.

    They claim they owe me only 95$.

    Pretty sure the 3 license suspensions alone were more in fees and charges than that. Never mind that 1720$ in late fees alone...

    I swear I'm going to go postal on these idiots soon.

    You have to treat them like over sensitive, coddled, 7 year old kids that have zero common sense and struggle with basic math. Truly the worst government service i have ever dealt with.
