Those damn air blower hand dryers they put in restrooms. The work as well as tits on a bull and you end up wiping your hands off on your pants.

We have 2 ex-governors in jail. Haven't we dealt with enough?

Re: Things I Hate


The Applebee's in town has a Dyson air blower in it with the air blade technology in it. It is like drying your hands with a torpedo heater. It's loud as crap but it works. I wish I had one at home I'd dry the cat with it, once.

Re: Things I Hate


Things I hate:

When people put trash in a can before someone has had a chance to put a new bag in it. Especially WET and/or STICKY stuff.

When people put LIQUIDS into the trash can without first dumping it out.

Getting woken up by a SPAM text at 3AM.

Talkative people who never let you get a word in edgewise.

Deceptive Multi-Level Marketing sales pitches.

Double-talk.

When unhelpful people try to be helpful.

When foreign voices on the other end of a 800 number can't understand what I am asking or attempting to convey.

People who have their head buried in their phone or they are on the phone 90% of the time yapping away about nothing.

When people ask me a question and then argue with me over the answer.

I don't hate much but one thing I do hate is when I give an order and the guy has no clue what I am talking about, like it's a foreign language!

We didn't want him, so we decided to ship him off where he belonged - with all the other two faced, lying jackals who eat puppies & kittens for breakfast, line their pockets at our expense, & contribute nothing to society.

No, I'm not bitter or cynical about our federal government - what would give you that impression?

Now let's not give folks the wrong impression, Angus. We technically only have 1 former governor in jail at the moment.


Well, at least for a few more months, anyhow.

Re: Things I Hate


Builders that want to hold your money until they get paid.

GC's that are wishy washy with what they want.

Gc,s that bid the plans off of prints yet want to save money by doing it another way.

Women you picked up last night, but won't leave in the morning.

Process severs that know you by your first name.

Slow drivers. I have places to be or things to do. Just because you are living off of state aid does not give you the right to regulate how fast I want to drive.
