You're crazy. I now feel bad for complaining about clearing the lane way as a kid...since I had a tractor at my disposal.

I feel the vue will go the way of 8 tracks and beta max (you young uns google these) .
I read yesterday the guy who came up with the pods does not even use them, 1/3 of all house holds in the US have a k cup machine.
Now the empty pods are a landfill nighmare, Watch out cali you folks you might have to drink tap water.
I think I have 3 boxes of French vanilla for that if you want them. I ordered without knowing there was more than one type of cup

Re: Things I Hate


The time change. It's already 11 and I was feeling like I was getting going earlier. Takes me months to get back on the groove I was just getting into before it changed.

I lived in Fort Myers as well for a couple years back around 07-08. I'm so glad I left. Absolutely hated it there. The Cape wasn't too bad though. Always enjoyed going to Matlacha

First sign it might be Monday morning: You scoop coffee grounds into the coffee pot and turn it on before realizing you forgot the filter...

Re: Things I Hate


I hate when people smoke and carry a strong body odor of the smoke leaving a "cloud" of the smell everywhere they go.

I made one of my guys spray himself down with Lysol this morning. I don't know if this violates any employer laws but I just can't tolerate it.

Around here if it was pot smoke you'd probably be in trouble.
