LED headlights. I get that they never burn out, but they're irritating to other drivers. They're way too bright. I don't want to be blinded by my rearview mirror.  The blue tint also makes me think there's a cop behind me.

Tap to click, i'll be hovering over something and end up accidentally clicking on something i didn't want to click on. It's so annoying and i just spent 3 hours trying to disable it and ended up having to disassemble my laptop and disconnecting the touchpad, so now i have to use a mouse.

After a shower at the gym......Towel off.....Step one foot into my shorts.....Pull the shorts off the floor, stick the 2nd foot in and catch a still wet little toe somewhere and nearly topple. Lower the shorts do it again and catch the same bloody toe again.....Errggggh!

Why are you trying to put trousers on when still "dripping slippery wet," @Beatlebug? Me, when I jump out the bath, I dry myself before getting dressed.

Okay, maybe not completely wet, that's poetic license. But usually still slightly damp, at least -- enough to make your trousers try to strangle you. Perhaps I was conflating it with my memories of swimming-suits as well.

When an acquaintance that looks vaguely familiar but whom you don't remember ever speaking to in your life approaches and attempts friendly small talk and you're smiling and nodding but on the inside you're like "PLEASE REVEAL YOUR IDENTITY AT ONCE I HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE DO I KNOW YOU." Very awkward. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Maybe you could tactfully make a (totally random) guess, like, 'Didn't we meet at ____?' and if it's wrong and they correct you, you can be like, 'Oh, yeah, duh, I totally knew that' ahdn_ringo_09

I don't know, just a thought mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Or you could just ask them how you know them. (that's probably what I'd do)

I suppose that might be worth a try, I'll have to remember it next time. apple01

Or you could just ask them how you know them. (that's probably what I'd do)

  

I like to avoid that if I can because I feel like it gives a sort of "oh-sorry-I-didn't-care-enough-about-any-past-interactions-we-may-have-had-enough-to-bother-remembering-them" sort of vibe, but maybe that's just me.

^See, you actually care about other people's feelings. I'm a tactless bastard. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Also, I don't think it necessarily means that you don't care about your past interactions, just that you're forgetful and... ya know... that stuff happens... I dunno mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I know so many goddamn people. I'm very thankful of the fact that I'm good at remembering names because that would be awkward.

All the fat-skinny people, all the tall-short people, all the nobody people, all the somebody people? Never thought you'd meet so many people... *arpeggiated Am piano chord*

I'm good with remembering names, but I don't know a lot of people so it's kind of a waste. So I put my skills to use with rock factoids instead. a-hard-days-night-george-4

Fiddy, try asking "when did I see you last?" and maybe their answer will remind you.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

That is such a good way around this problem! I will be using that for sure

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
