Things that are pissing you off. - Page 3028

Whenever I need to have my picture taken for the newspaper or some other kind of media, the photographer is always shorter than me. The resulting angle does not present me in my best light at all.

Stupid spam filter at work filters out the legitimate messages but lets through the Canadian Viagra / Cialis messages. Fucking hell.

Are you sure it's spam and not just targeted advertising?

I keep going to this Chinese takeout place and ordering different things but I can never distinguish what's different. I'm convinced they've got about four dishes that each have 5-10 representations on the menu.

I would much rather go up against a good lawyer who acts professionally.

Been there, done that. My condolences.

On the other hand, screwball pro pers have their moments.

The Legal Reader reports (thanks to Joe Olson for the pointer):

Plaintiff George C. Swinger, Jr., an inmate in Washington State, filed a pro se Notice of Appeal in a civil case before U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton in the Western District of Washington. The Notice, filed July 12, 2006, states:

I hereby am informing you that I am appealing the asshole Ronald B. Leighton's decision in this matter.

You have been hereby served Notice. You're not getting away with this shit that easy.

You can view the handwritten Notice of Appeal here (.pdf). (That's almost as good as a "Motion to Kiss My Ass" . . . .)

The links to the notice (and the motion to kiss the movant's ass) are in the Legal Reader post.

Converse Jack Purcells are now very poorly made. I pulled my new pair out of the box and noticed instantly:

-No Jack Purcell logo on the tongue.
-The blue tip on the toebox, which used to be recessed, is now flush with the shoe. Looks off.
-The comfortable, durable blue insole of old is gone. Shitty and uncomfortable white has replaced it.
-No metal tips on the laces.

And of course, after all that cost-cutting, the price went up. This makes me really mad. Returning these things tomorrow.

Came here to whine and ended up reading 4 pages. Now I have to quote.

I hate it when I need to take another deuce at night. Morning shit, pre shower every day save this rare instance. Goddamit.

Fucking sun is at just the right early April angle and blasts the side of my face on my ride to work and gave me an all day headache.

Started a wine bottle last night and forgot to cork it. Now I have a fruit bomb.

Classic pB.

This has been true since the beginning of time, how is this new to you?

I am just speaking for myself here (and not for any other man; I do not have the right), but I did not find it to be funny at all, say nothing about hilarious. Maybe I will learn a lesson from this. (To be clear, the lesson would be not to hit my light switches so hard.)

Oddly related to this (and not at all pissing me off), the wife just won a $500 gift card to Victoria's Secret. satisfied.gif

Have you ever broken a light switch by hitting it too hard? Or by any other means for that matter? It is quite an experience.

The bend was hidden behind the cranks/chainrings on the downtube near the bottom bracket. April Fools on myself cloud.gif

No, but the humor resides in imagining what its like.

What am I missing? Do we need the Fact Check Mafia? I can make a call.

the real fix would be to literally re-melt the welds and put in a whole new tube - which also means re-painting the frame. Not really worth the effort/time/money. mad.gif
