Things you just don't get - Page 482

People who don't indicate at all. I'm supposed to stop my car until you've made you manoeuvre like a royal fucking procession because you might dart in several directions without warning?!

Here's another one - I was in a conference room and this woman from another department was in the atrium. She was clearly having a conversation with someone about the behavior of her child (sounded like an educator or day care employee on the other end). At one point she totally flipped out because i think the other person accused her child of raising her voice and cursing...so she starts screaming and dropping f-bombs at the other person laugh.gif

I just hope that the other person responded with "hmm, I wonder who your child gets this from?"

I do love me a good ironic moment.

Non standard collar stay sizes. Take the 1/4" "skinny" variety; losing the stays that came with the shirt and no regular sized stay fits. So I get out the scissors and cut a standard plastic one down to size.

RLBL, I'm looking at you. ffffuuuu.gif

I'm addicted to charging my phone. I've had it for a year and have never run out of battery. I don't know why, but it'll be at 65% or something, and instead of just leaving the house with enough power to operate the phone for a week straight, I'll sit around and wait for it to charge to 90% before leaving. Then I'll come home four hours later with 86% of my battery left and immediately plug it in for precaution.

I just received an e-mail from one of my students addressed to a certain Dr. Lee (of which is not my name). How do you send an e-mail to a professor (or anyone for that matter) and not double check that you've addressed it correctly?

It is probably retaliation by a student whose name you mispronounced on the first day of class.
Burn!

Well then I might just "mistype" when I report the student's final grade at the end of the semester (typing a letter further into the alphabet of worse grade hehehe). Game, set, and match.

Why do people give their shiba inus Japanese names? 

E.g. Tetsuya, Kenchi, Kuma, Kimiko, Toshiro etc.

here's a vexing one for me:

what is the purpose of those "Caution: Baby on Board" signs you see on vehicles? i don't get it.

is it a warning to other motorists not to smash into your car because your snot factory is aboard? because most people out there see a car with adults in it and are more likely to say, oh let me crush this one and take us all out in a fireball?

seems to me that the person who should care most about that baby is the one who doesn't need to see a sign to know that there's a baby on board.

i see quite a few of those cars with signs that are driven by the biggest dumbfuck on the road. perhaps people buy the "baby on board" sign as a plan B when the "please give me a lot of space - i'm a dumb shit-for-brains that doesn't know what the fuck he's doing" sign is sold out (or has too many words to fit in the rear window)

I read an article a while ago that tied those signs to the perceived entitlement among younger people today. Basically, the idea is that they're the generation where those signs first made their appearance, and the signs are a manifestation of the parental attitude of coddling and expecting others to yield to your child that has led young people thinking the world revolves around them.

Regardless, "Baby on Board" signs are stupid, and they're on the list of vehicle adornments that make it certain MrG is not going to let you in in traffic.

Those things were big in like the 90s . I am surprised to hear they are making a comeback . I remember a guy had a doll in a doll sized car seat strapped to his bumper

All I can say is I once almost ran my huge SUV into a tiny sub-compact but I noticed it had a one of those signs. Instead of running my huge SUV into the tiny car I turned myself into a collision with a cement truck instead.
