    Isn't there some sort of diligence reuptake inhibitor pill?


    I have several friends who had success with Adderall. Both prescribed and recreationally.

    Anyway, right now my main irk is people who don't listen when I'm talking, interrupt me and change the subject, then expect me to care what they've talked about. So ignorant that I'm in the middle of a sentence about something that is very useful knowledge and they start going on about something else entirely or just give a blank stare and walk away. I'm going to lose it one of these days. It's only certain people, who unfortunately I don't have the luxury of just avoiding.

    Ahhh, this one happens to me a lot at work. A customer complains about some policy we have, based on an incorrect assumption; when I attempt to gently provide them with the correct information, they simply stop listening - with the slack jaw, the glassy eyes, the whole bit - and then just attempt to barrel over the top of me with the same complaint as before. The especially persistent can do this 5 or 6 times before they actually get angry, because I'm not agreeing with something they just made up.

    It's astounding that there's so many of them - they don't want to be reasonable, they just want to make noise. It's like they're giant babies.

    This is the great secret of dealing with the public: assume they are all children. It actually works, sadly.

    It has nothing to do with the type of car; it has to do with the parking job (or lack thereof), obviously!

    I occasionally work at an optical shop that caters to politicians and celebrities (people that should have a modicum of experience with listening to others) and sadly, I have to deal with the same exact thing. It's as if people like to hear themselves talk, but what they're saying contains no substance. And they won't stop to think, "Hey, this person has all the information I need; I should listen to him." It's amazing. Working with people in a business environment has taught me a lot about human nature.

    Have you ever tried to slash a tire? They are not as slashable as you might think.

    Ok, so you cut their brakes...no one should get away with parking like that.

    Cut their brakes and someone less deserving of injury could get hurt... I think the answer is clear here:

    Do you think that if the guy was driving a 1982 Chevy Caprice he would have bothered to take two spaces? Clearly he doesn't want his doors dinged.

    Incidentally, people dinging my doors PISSES ME OFF.

    Someone also recently clipped the rear bumper of my car while it was parked (properly) at Logan airport. No note, no nothing. Again, PISSING ME OFF.

    As the driver of a late model luxury German car, I can completely understand, at the same time, I am careful when I open and close my doors, if everyone was that careful, there would be no door dings.
