    I had this enabled on my work BBerry, not by choice. A few months ago it went off like six times for the same thunderstorm--well after the storm had passed. It took a while but I figured out how to turn it off.

    I had mine go off for the first time a few weeks ago while driving. Thought the phone was going to blow up.

    That single Amber alert probably decreased the number of people receiving said Amber alerts by 50%...

    I'm pretty sure this couldn't happen anywhere else: brought a linen shirt for sleeve shortening to a place that had done a good (but $$$) job before. As I was leaving leaving I asked if they could hand press it as well.

    "Sure, but you know that a HP for a linen shirt is $32". :crazy:

    I will iron this one myself

    Wait, it costs more to iron a linen shirt? Should be cheaper, linen irons easily.

    Was it Meurice, or Chris French? I bet Meurice.

    My local cleaner is great for hand pressing shirts (but not for anything else, to be honest) - only $1.00 per, including linen.​

    My laundry charges me more for linen, like 75 cents more I think

    I'm a small timer. I wash and press my shirts myself.

    Same. Partly because I don't trust anyone near me not to fuck it up, partly because I'm a small timer.

    I wash mine and would press my own as well if time permitted. I would argue that the time cost of pressing your own is big timer.

    Eh, once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 2-3 mins per shirt. Not bad, really.

    The time to do it is certainly an issue. I mean, it seems like lost time. I will confess, I don't do a very perfect job of it. I just spend most of the time on the collar, cuffs, and front. I thought about making a video on how to press a shirt in a minute.
