Spam emails. Would you believe it! One hundred and nine, 109, viruses have been found on my Windows computer!! One hundred and nine of them! On my Windows computer. Guess I'll have to get a Windows computer. This is a Mac.  :D

Cylists who ride against the traffic flow. Nearly hit one while turning onto the road home. He emerged from behind a gravel train, so couldn't be seen with moments to react.
"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain

First shift is still going home in eight hours wile we have to stay 10.  Now they expect us to fix their mistakes as well. This is getting old.

New rules on FaceBook means they have to let anyone join any page. Lots of spam going on right now.

Knowing I'll be working eight hours on a Saturday knowing full well day shift will either work four or not show up at all. You have no idea how disappointing it is to work with bad management.

I do.

My company expects us to work weekends and days off to make schedule.  Bad management.  Bad decisions.  We have lost 30 engineers in 3 years.  IN a company of ~65 people?
I hang on because despite all that I know I have it good in some ways.  (Experience tells me this, aka "it could be worse!")

What grinds my gears at this moment is how people get irate about small things, and how no one has thick skin.  If we all are easily hurt by the tiniest thing, how can we coexist?

I recently bought a new car. Now I'm getting messages from them about offers and merch. I'm not interested in Chevy underwear. So I delete and block. Apparently they work like spam. Hundreds of addresses to keep sending this my way. I don't read it. I delete and block. Now they are sending me stuff through the mail. Now I can delete, block and toss.  And speaking of my car. it has Onstar. Something the dealership activated. I got a message from onstar. Wile I was driving. It was not only loud but it also changed my dashboard settings. Wile I was driving. I no longer had a digital speedometer. I was looking at my trip mileage readout. Wile I was driving. How thoughtful. After the holidays I'm going to do one of two things. Going to the dealership, because apparently they have to be the ones to shut this off, or going to a shop and having this physically removed from the vehicle.

Good luck Cause, infotainment and such is a way to make newer cars have reoccuring costs.
Anyway, hopefully they can cut the red wire

My folks had onstar and stopped paying it and let it die

Annoying phone calls. Had an insurance company call me. Twice. Giving me a quote on auto insurance. So I called them up. Just to remind them that I'm on the national no call list. If they don't have direct business with me they don't call. Their calls were aggravating. My call back was fun.

My dad! He doesn't like any coats, sweaters, ect that I buy for my dog Eevee.
It's hard hard finding things that are cute and functional to keep her warm that dad approves of.
God forbid I buy hoodies for her too!  >:(
I swear he's making me swear off keeping dogs as pets. I think I'll keep pet rats after Eevee joins the Rainbow Bridge.

All automotive commercials grind my gears.

Jade, the best way to find and buy a new car. If it's not being advertises that means they are having no problems selling it.

My grind is youtube shorts. Tired of being notified for four second videos.

I have Onstar as well. Never activated it and never use it. Where I go, when I go, how long I'm away, who I see, what I do is none of your business. So far, it hasn't done anything like that.

Simo, this is something I didn't want to begin with. I have a phone. I don't need my car to be one as well.

Just blocked and deleted another "GM Rewards" email. Guess they don't get the message.
