Things that are pissing you off. - Page 2866

post #42976 of 62037
I've got some lip balm on my desk. I like it quite a bit--more than the other free lip balms I have.

It has some dancing teeth on the side of the stick and says "West Lake Dental Center, Minneapolis MN" on it. They are not my dentist, but I wish they were since they have quite nice lip balm and I don't like my current dentist very much.

edit: unfortunately, I checked and they don't take my insurance (also, they are 400 miles away).

The Burt's Bees lip balm is sufficient for my purposes.

THIS.

Although, apropos to this thread, I had the same tin of Burt's Bees that I'd been using faithfully for years, was starting to see the metal at the bottom, and then I lost it. Just disappeared one day. Probably at the house somewhere, but I had it for YEARS, was close to finishing it, and *POOF* gone.

Does anyone ever finish a balm?

that stuff is awesome. i think its impossible to finish a tin. they have secret BBs agents out there that steal them so you have to buy more. like the goat in those chewing gum commercials. just less obviously.

Times are hard, Stitch, even moderators have to take what we can get.

Another big +1 for Burt's. I use the stuff in a Chapstick-type tube, not the tin, but BB is still icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.

There's another one I like, too - Savannah Bee Company. It's similar to Burt's, but more expensive. It's probably not worth the difference in price, but Savannah Bee has mint julep flavor. Suffice it to say, I pick some up every time I'm in Savannah.

I guess it depends on what you want out of it. I want to make some career changes so I went for it. It's also not terribly expensive if you're working and thus don't need extra $$ for living expenses.

Electric razors are rubbish. Just fucking trash.

QFT. I love the idea of one, the simplicity... But I'm convinced they work by yanking the hairs out of your face, not cutting them. And not even doing a very good job of that.

I've been using an old safety razor and wet shaving for the last couple of years and it's the best shaving I've ever had.

+1 on the Burt's. My brother swears by Chap-Stick, but I don't like the texture it leaves once applied. Too vaseline like for me.

And if you have outstanding student loans, you get to stop paying them while you are in school (even part-time).

I'm a longtime electric user. Some are better than others for sure (and paying for the good ones probably costs as much as you would spend on regular razors over the lifespan). I use one of the wet/dry linear panasonics and I use it in the shower. Soap up my face first with some regular bar soap and then shave. The shave isn't as close as can be done with a blade, but I don't have any problems with pain/discomfort. I think people forget that these blades need to be replaced too...my dad has a rotary norelco that he has had for many years (with original blades). I've used it when I have forgotten mine and that thing does feel like it is pulling the hairs out of the follicle.

All the people I know who use and like electric razors have really thin beards. My facial hair is like wire, so a blade is a necessity.

I got a call from someone in one of our west coast offices. I had done some work on one of their projects back in July because nobody in their office knew how to do anything like it.

I was excited because I had enjoyed the project and thought they were calling to either update/expand the program I wrote or to do something similar on another project.

Turns out it was the low guy on the totem pole calling and he just wanted me to send him the code that I wrote for backup purposes frown.gif

Do you think that the guy was trying to take credit for what you did or what?
