    I've already said what I have to say about people who aren't man enough to operate a car using their keys will not say any more about it. (Be like "hoo hoo hoo.")

    this explains so much





    boy and I thought us azns had family dysfunction perfected! :)

    my paternal grandmother died march 24 last year and before that she had a massive stroke for more than a week. everyone of her 3 children and their spouses were crying and there I am thinking what a bunch of fucking hypocrites. she was for several years shuttling between my father's and my uncle's homes and their bipolar sister would regularly visit and be a bitch and they kept arguing about how to take care of her all the time. also, granted that my grandmother was kinda irritating but eventually whoever was taking care of her would end up not getting along with her and it always end up the same- shouts, dramas, calling the sibling to tell him my grandmother needs to move there...

    me otoh would regularly visit her with the kids and spend a few minutes with her just to see if she's doing okay. I've always said I would love to bring her in to our house and take care of her (with her nanny of course) but our place then wouldn't be the best place for her to stay in. then again I was glad that whenever we visit she would be happy to see her great grand kids and even for just a moment she'd stop feeling miserable and be irritating and would be smiling.

    anyway, i found it so fucking funny that the older generation were crying when she died but they treated her like useless scrap during her final years. oh, did I mention my neurosurgeon sister who was observing her when she visited from the US told me and our mother and my uncle that she seemed to show symptoms of having gone through several mini-strokes. and yet they dismissed it as nothing and refused to bring her to a specialist just to make sure she's fine. (and as I mentioned she never woke up after her last stroke)

    AND I HOPE YOU LIKE THE STORY, BHOWIE :D

    I'm quite hoping that's a joke.

    Another annoying card thing my mother pulled on me one year. When I moved into a new place my mom bought me this huge pack of blank cards to write something in to send to people for birthday's and whatnot. Well, I used one of them to write her a birthday card and she threw a tantrum that she wasn't important enough to get a "special" card and I viewed her the same as anybody else who was getting those cards. Wtf did she get them for me for? She's the only one who demands a card on her birthday! She's the only one who I ever send cards to! :fu:

    So I found out that one of our groups weren't paid their incentives for two months because one person was not aware that they were supposed to run the numbers. In fairness, I am aware that I should have checked up on them much earlier, but.....holy fuck, people!!!

    I forgot about some chocolate pudding I bought a couple days ago and it's now past its sell-by date: Apr-21st.

    Still safe to eat?

    :(

    What could one possibly find funny in my comment?

    GF, not gonna lie, I love push start (it's old school actually) and I love touching the door handle to lock/unlock.

    My car has the auto unlock/lock capacitive touch door handles and I love it. I never have to take the keys out of my pocket.

    I once drove drunk several hours away into Jersey, possibly trying to get to Atlantic City. When I awoke my keys were gone. Fortunately I was able to hotwire it. I did that for about 4 months before I broke down and got a new key.

    Replacement key on a 2002 Ford Taurus was $90 back in 2006. Unreal.

    Yes but I drunkenly lost my keys, probably throwing them into a river. Buying a car without a donut is premeditation.

    Key in? Bogus. I didn't realize that's who BMW works. I thought the whole point of the push button was the key can stay in your pocket.

    That's only if you have comfort access, which is a separate option. Otherwise you have to slot it in.
