I hate bad drivers! Especially when I need to get to a job, they make me crazy!

I have no idea what happened, but it was every single measure in two rooms.

Too long is better than too short. At least you can cut it again to make it work.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


I ordered a service contract (no goods sold) for $459.20 from a company at about 4:00 yesterday afternoon.

At 4:07 they ran my credit card for $470.68 ($11.48 sales tax added).

At 4:08 they ran my card again for $485.59 ($26.39 sales tax added).

At 4:28 they ran my card again for $1,361.72 (no taxes were added to this one).

At this moment I've paid $2,317.99 for a $459.20 service contract.

Some people can screw-up a shot put!

Re: Things I Hate (2)


When my girlfriend ask to go on a trip to Mexico to some time share a friend has supposed to be a 700$ trip for 7 days sure no problem.

With the trip 5 days away it has ballooned to over $2200 for 1 person....

We could have both went on a 7 day cruise for less than that

At least you can be happy that you have increased the net worth of some shirtless Hindi in sandals, living in a corrugated shack in Prandahashumanaharandamanahakkesh by US $2,317.99.

See WoS.

I forgot to mention you can’t work inside because the fumes are so powerful. I had a headache from hell all last night.


It’s such bull**** that we have to hire plumbers to do everything here. I’ve never met one who had many brain cells left after huffing all the pvc cement for years, probably never had many to begin with. I’m thinking about moving to CA.
