I am starting to see an overuse of the phrase "It is what it is" when shrugging off something a person does not like.

  

Agree

That also reminds me of this interesting moment from a certain interview with a certain president:

Also, sometimes, getting an ad after a video ends.

*Lying down on my bed at night, just finishing listening to a nice relaxing song with my eyes closed, enjoying the peaceful ambiance* Ah, yes, how soothing. I think I'll go to slee-"THIS IS A TOMATO. THINK IT'S GOOD FOR YOU? THINK AGAIN."

LMAO WHAT IS THAT AD FOR

I'm not entirely certain as I believe it's skippable before it says what it's for, but my guess would be the guy in the ad is some kind of dietary "expert" (in quotes, because he could very well be a quack). It's ridiculously long as well, I think just over 50 minutes?

  

nooooo... 50 minutes? For an ad? That's insane..... thank goodness it's skippable

Love one another.

And @Joe's enemy. Ad's help pay for this site and forum.

Anyway, my current pet peeve...

...overpricing on takeaway delivery sites like Just Eat, Deliveroo, and Uber Eats.

Just learnt my favourite burger place is a pound cheaper on every item on their menu when ordered from their website rather than from Just Eat. Eight items on my order tonight, £8 cheaper than it would have been from Just Eat, which is where I usually order.

Gonna start checking if places have their own sites if there's that much of a price difference.

If you order directly from them, do they deliver? What's their delivery fee? I know very little about having food delivered. No one delivers out to the boondocks where I live.

They do deliver, @Ahhh Girl. Delivery costs vary between different takeaways, and this one charges £2.50 (on Just Eat there's an additional 50p service charge). So, in all, I got an £8.50 saving on what Just Eat charges for the same meal.

In my hometown of Milton Keynes, you can get things like takeaways and food from corner shops delivered by ACTUAL ROBOTS.

I would happily pay extra to use one of these little guys!

We have actual delivery bots and you've mentioned the one limitation to their technology. Can't win. a-hard-days-night-george-10

They can't manage stairs, but they notify you via an app when they arrive at the ground floor I think. Luckily the town is quite flat and built on a grid, so they don't encounter too many issues.
