I don't like when a cashier is handing me my change back and give me the dollars before the change! Then I have to cup the change with the dollars and hope they dont fall all over the place, slide them in to my other hand before they go in my pocket. This could all be avoided if i got the change first.



and the LaFerrari steering wheel is ugly. It gets to me every time I see it

Did you ever ask the receptionist to make your follow-up appointment, and have her say why don't you just call us on the phone and we'll make it then? Because this way she can ignore you and keep talking to her buddies

Yes, and when this happens, I make sure that I can make their day much harder than it is supposed to be. I call them from right there and make the follow up appointment. I refuse to talk to them by phone and tell them, because it was inconvenient for them before, I will just do it by phone. Yes, I'm an asshole, but one of the nicest that you will meet.

This. And the food court cashiers here toss in the receipt to boot. Now you have dollars, change, and a receipt in your hand. Or if you use a cc, they wrap the receipt around the cc and hand it back to you. So you have to hold up the line getting it all straightened out, or shove the whole mess in your pocket and fix it later.

Your office phone or your cell? If it's your cell, check to see if your cell company has a number blocking option. If I get 3 or 4 calls from a spam number I add them to my blocked numbers list on Verizon and never hear from them again.

both phones actually but different numbers. ill see whats up at att if they have number blocker.

I've been applying for numerous jobs so it's hard to tell whether or not it's a telemarketer or someone contacting me for a job. pain in the ass answer a phone for a prospective job interview and having it be another f'in jagamo trying to sell some shit or get me to buy a 3rd party extended warranty for my car.

I get spam calls all the time on my google voice number which I use for one of my businesses. I get the same fucking automated one like every 2-3 days and I always go into google voice and block it but the motherfuckers must have a huge bank of numbers they go through. Honestly, I would love to hear one of these calls where the person actually buys whatever they are selling.

On my personal cell I rarely get any spam calls.

Every time I call Time Warner to complain about their shitty service, they are completely understanding of the reasons I am having a hard time and would like to aide me with my issues....



and then go on to try and sell me a fucking home phone package I never inquired about.




NO JAMAL, NOBODY USES A HOME PHONE ANYMORE.

Also, I've been seeing a lot of 190lb and up women wearing yoga pants lately...,



Now, I've been known to toss a fatty on the back of my bike with assless chaps, but that's different.

People who apply their brakes through a solid green light. Also people who signal one direction, and turn the other.

Cheap and thin commercial sandpaper TP!

Unfortunately, the ghetto woman I saw this morning had to be at least 350lb's. Thought she was smuggling watermelons from the local store. Naturally I called the cops.


Agreed. Cheap TP should (really shouldn't though) only be at the workplace due to cheap management. If you have shitty TP in your home, shame on you and God speed on your holes.

Not exactly sure what it was from, but what I do know, is that those pants were practically screaming for help. Granted I was a little turned on by it, but I digress.


Charmin Ultra Soft is my go-to. Closest thing to wiping with a hand full of cotton balls, IMO.

I do the cottonelle with aloe. Feels so right.

Also, something that has really been bothering me lately... People that call me on my cell or office number or whatever like 4 or 5 times in a row and don't leave a voicemail. I'm like, damn... At that point I don't even call them back. If it was that important they would email me or leave a damn message asking me to call them back. I don't spend that much time in my office that you should be calling me over and over. LEAVE A DAMN MESSAGE.

Hah! Yes!

also
1. People who speed up when they see a turn signal
2. People who brake instead of just letting off the gas pedal
3. People who come to full stops before making their turn
4. People who drive slow in the left lane
5. People who don't use turn signals
6. People who sit in their car and dick around at the gas station when people are clearly waiting for the pump

Two-foot automatic drivers. Not talking about drivers who have two feet or drivers who are two feet tall, but those who use both of their feet to drive their automatic vehicle. I'm seeing a ramp up recently in the number of cars I've followed that pull off from a green light with their brake lights still illuminated.

7. People who drive a small car like a Honda Fit or a Prius and think they have to veer out when they turn like they are driving an 18 wheeler to avoid the curb.

How about when you are waiting to turn right in to traffic at an intersection but you have to wait for the one car to pass by. So you wait. and wait. and then they turn right. No turn signal. Ahhh! I hate that. Maybe hate is strong word...I loathe that.
