Driving the posted speeds and being overtaken and passed routinely.

Burger King. That's right. The fast food place. I stopped going to the one here in town. Because they usually got my order wrong. Or the food was cold. Was at my mom's Sat. Decided to get everyone Burger King. Got home with it. No fries. Seems they can't get it right no matter where you go.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

This is going to happen no matter what at just about every fast food chain. There's a reason fast food is called "fast". It's designed to be cooked/put together in a hurry and gotten to the customer in as short a time as possible. Therefore, mistakes will occur.

I hate having to explain why i left my last job...over and over ... Can't I just say "Because sometimes things suck!"
Here is what I was intending to send to a potential employer because they asked me...


Hi 'L',

I am glad you asked.  Sadly, I was in a bad situation at LM partly due to my immediate manager, as I was being mismanaged and partly due to circumstances apparently out of my control.  I had competing factors for my time and attention which all served to make my time at LM very difficult indeed.  I asked for time off to regroup and was given a stern warning that no time off was allowed for me.

I was focused on completing work at the antenna test range where I had become an expert at my job (primary job site).  I was being pulled off to other areas where I was not an expert  to do other  risky tasks, leaving me unable to complete work on time at my primary job site.  This lead to upper management and customer disassitsfaction because scheules were not being met.  I appologiized to customers and told my immediate manager that I needed to focus on my main job duities and that the other tasks were not even in my job description.  This was not taken well by immediate manager and the pressure put to me.  Working 60+ hours per week, combined with the slow death of my dog from kidney disease, cost of living pressures, as well as a very bad neighbor all were too much, so I decided to make a change in my life for the better.  Not knowing what my future would hold, I sadly left after training 2 employees in a intense 3 week period of knowledge transfer.

In the end, I had to leave the area I was living, to get away from a dangerous neighbor who I and my landlord had to take to court for harassment, stalking, life threats and property damage over a 6 month period.  I also left the job at LM because I was being asked to compromise my integrity, quality of work, and important customer  relationships to satisfy my immediate supervisor.  And in my time between jobs, my beloved pet has passed away leaving me essentially starting from ground zero.  No home, no job, no pet.

It is hard to explain to people what my reasons for leaving were, and I hope this helps.  In the end I feel I made the correct choice to remove myself from a toxic working environment that was crushing my creativity and ethics, and potentially leading to poor results in an industry that can not tolerate failures.  And I sincerely doubt such a thing will happen again since it seems unlikely I could have that much bad luck again all at the same time.  "

In the end, all I really said was poor and unsafe working environment.

There's a bus stop and shelter on the east side of a Walmart building where I shop. Every time I go to Wally World, I ALWAYS see shopping carts strewn about the bus stop area and "inside" the shelter area where people are supposed to sit.  >:( The bus shelter is not a parking garage for shopping carts!  >:( Why the hell people can't park the carts someplace else and properly stack them, I'll never know. Probably too damn lazy.  >:(

Why can't people put stuff back where it belongs in a grocery store? Particuarly refrigerated products? Sometimes when I'm shopping, I'll see a refrigerated product sitting in a non-refrigerated area/shelf that should really be in a cooler. Now the product is going to spoil.  :P

The old person who starts doing the Catholic hand gesture when I walk by in the store and try to stop me and talk to me about how my music is satanic. Oh I'm sorry I had a headset on and I'm an adult

Other motorists crowding into the intersection before it's cleared.

what grinds my gears is hearing my neighbors dog sitter hit and yell a German Shepard.  And i can't prove it!

in a separate event...
the dog is named Chloe, and is nice.  She was yanked by the neck with a choke chain just for slowly walking to me to see me ( or get away from her abusers)

Employers who act all "Ahh he is the one for us, let's get him in here right away for a face-to-face interview" and they never call back..  As if a back hole ate them.

Seriously... in a phone interview, they asked me many technical questions, and I answered as well as I could and I even heard one person in the conference call kinda gasp and go "mmm!" as if they liked what I said.  And seriously, one man said, "I think you will be a good fit here, let me see how soon we can arrange for next steps".  SO after that, I was super hopeful.  Now I wonder if the company blew up because no one is talking to me at all.

Employers need to treat all prospective employees well, because we all get our impressions of them that way.

Jade Sinapu. CALL BACK! Let them know your still interested. And KEEP calling back.

I know this is really superficial. I just watched 22 episodes of an Anime to find out they never finished it. A really good and well written story. By the same people that did 'Ghost in the Shell. Stand Alone Complex." And "Ghost in the Shell. Second Gig." One of the BEST scifi anime ever.

All the stupid hype and absolute nonsense surrounding guitars. On a forum I belong to a few people are discussing a guitar part. There is only one thing worst than being so far off in the left field loony ben. It's supporting these mojo unrealistic, if they weren't so crazy they'd hear it for themselves beliefs.  The most insane "Are you crazy???" moment comes when what they believe doesn't work. The face plant in the mud truth doesn't change what they believe. They blame failure on something else. It's even funnier when two people believe the exact opposite about the same guitar part. And they're both wrong. I no longer chime in on these discussions. Even after they admit to failure. Telling them the truth only makes them mad.

Neighbors "toot-locking" their cars several times each night rather than manually.
