Company websites which have incorrect information displayed. Cineworld saying their opening hours are 10am – 10pm yet it’s closed plus stating in their FAQ you can order a replacement card in your account when there is no such option.

 

Losing things. This week I have lost my front door key, ear phones and cinema card. I’m used to losing things but three in one week is a pain in the neck.

 

This laptop’s keyboard. Whoever designed it was a moron.

When people are indoors maskless and not social distancing:

Don’t get me wrong, i understand that there are certain people that can’t wear masks for medical reasons (in which case i’d gladly make an exception) and i also understand that being fully vaccinated puts you at significantly less risk (although there’s still a risk) of getting COVID but here in the US, we lifted the mask mandate for those who are fully vaccinated despite not yet achieving herd immunity and instead of something robust like a vaccine passport to determine who is and isn’t vaccinated, we’re instead using the honor system. This means that unvaccinated people can just freely walk into a store maskless without social distancing and potentially spread the virus to others, including children and people with compromised immune systems who can’t get vaccinated or can’t experience the full benefits of being vaccinated, as well as allowing it mutate, which could make the vaccine less protective against COVID.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

But you see… The government is lying to you, and Bill Gates finds you interesting enough to put a microchip in you…

 

And masks are the devils work and infringe on your God given right to spread a deadly virus. 

 

Or something like that, anyway…

Latest one I read was something along the lines of if you get the vaccine it turns you magnetic and you will find yourself dragged off to the North Pole against your will due its magnet pull.

Printers.

 

Has anybody, ever, been able to print something, first try, without a problem?

If so, a-hard-days-night-ringo-15blue-meanie

 

update: still can’t get it to work on my computer, so I had to install an app on my phone, email it to myself, configure settings on my phone, then do it that way. Absolutely ridiculous.

My printer is great, any issues I’ve ever had with it have been caused by me needing to update the driver.

My pet peeve is when fast food restaurants (and other businesses) give discounts only for people who use their apps.  I don’t think this is fair for people like me who do not own smartphones and have no plans to get one.

Is this not a form of discrimination?  What’s next?  Discounts only for people who use drive-thru or kiosk?  Discounts only for those who pay cash?  Discounts only for those who support their stance on a political issue or voted for their candidate?

If it makes you feel any better Jimmy, they’re just hoarding user’s data to see how to squeeze more money off of you and/or selling it on to 3rd parties.

Good points from both of you.  Still, I wish there was more of a public outrcry and backlash against this practice.  Maybe it might give these businesses something to think about.  But I seem to be the only one bothered by this.

You are all my friends.
