"On the hunt" peeves:

  • When you find a brand new figure or two hanging on the pegs, and you realize that you most likely just missed out on a much bigger score by not going to that store just a little earlier (yeah, I'm a glass is half empty kinda guy - what of it?!  :-*)
  • When you carefully place your figures on the conveyer belt, only to have the clumsy cashier try to stack a few up to scan, and of course wind up dropping several of them 4 feet down onto the floor.  Sure, I'll just use those formerly MOMC figures for my "loose" collection.  Thanks moron.   >:(
  • When you unexpectedly stumble across such a huge figure score, but didn't anticipate needing an actual cart, so you try to pile up 15 figures in your arms ('cause it's not safe to run all the way back up to the front of the store for a cart!), only to wind up dropping one or two on the floor yourself!   ::)  IDIOT!   :-\
And then there's this always enjoyable conversation that irritates the living crap out of me EVERY single time it happens at my favorite fast food joints:

At In-N-Out:

Me: Hi, I'd just like a Double-double.  That's all.

Idiot: Would you like the combo?

Me:  No.  Just the Double-double.

Idiot:  Would you like a drink with that?

Me:  NO!   >:(  Just... the... Double-double...!!!   >:(   >:(   >:(

Me (in my head):  What the f'n hell part of "No", "just" and "that's all" are you having so much trouble understanding exactly, you freaking moron?!?!?   >:(

Feel free to substitute Taco Bell, KFC, Jack in the Crack, Burger King, or any other fast food place in there instead, and you get the identical results 90% of the time.  And you wonder why they call me Bulky Blocky...   ::)   :P

Star Wars collectors who don't know the difference between POTF and POTF2.  To a lesser extent, SW collectors who don't know what OC, GC, FF, EU, SOTE, EP1, EP2, SS, LS, LT, ST, MOMC, and MIMB mean.

Here's a few things that pissed me off in the last couple of weeks:

1.  Rain - I don't mind it once in a while, but when 9 out of the last 10 weekends have been raining, I get a little pissed.  The Northeast is not a g'damn rain forest.  I actually played a golf tournament Sunday in a torrential downpour.

2.  Dip s**ts who don't turn their headlights on when its raining.  Hello, numbnuts, nobody can see you without them.

3.  Punk ass kids who wear their hats wrong.  I not talking backwards, I can deal with that (and I wore my hats backwards for a while)  I'm talking about wearing them sideways.  You look like a moron, get some self respect.  And bend the brim for chrissakes.  Nothing looks more stupid than a straight brim.

OK, so I have to get this one off my chest... thanks for the opportunity!

I decided a while ago I wanted to learn some web site building skills, nothing super duper, maybe something for trading etc. etc.

First I look around the 'net for a html editor, I decide on using a product called 1st Site.

I am super cheap, I download the trial version, it says it will place a link to their site on every page you create, and you get no support.  No problem... Its a WYSIWYG editor, so its easy to use, and I can then edit the html later, and learn a little as I go.

I create some pages, not bad stuff, nothing fancy but it will do.  I then go to find a free web host, but I really don't want banner ads, or pop ups.

I settle on www.freewebs.com.  Pretty good, some limitations, no FTP, no multiple file uploads, but whatever.  They also place some code on your site linking to their site.

The code is small so I fugure no big deal.

Here is where the annoying thing comes in!

I start setting up my site, I upload all my images, and some of the html pages, and I get this message saying I have uploaded my limit of 50 files!

WTF, no where did it say anything about 50 file limit, in fact I have 100 MB of space that has hardly been touched!  I do some investigation, and it turns out that recently they decided that if you uploaded 50 files you have obvioulsy decided you like their service, and if you want to continue uploading, you have to subscribe to at least one of their premium services!!

Arghhhhhhhh.  Bait and switch if you ask me!

Wait it gets worse.. the free lite version of the html editor I was using, whose only limitation is it places some code on your pages decides I have used it enough too!

I have published 30 pages (long story.. I was trying it out) and if I want to publish more, I have to buy the full version at 89.99!!

What makes matters worse, there is no warning when you get close to this amount, so my entire site is saved in their proprietary format, and I can't get it out unless I buy the full version!!!

I am soooooo frustrated!!!!

But I feel better now.  I found a new free host that is better anyway, hopefully they don't pull the same crap as freewebs.  I also am going to install the 1site s/w on my work computer, and hopefully I can import the site I created, export it to pure html, and find a new editor to use!

/ end rant.

Thanks, I feel much better!!

Scott :)

That is hilarious!  It's the truth though... I was one of those kids a LONG time ago that experienced the same thing.

Lets keep personal attacks off of the board, guys. If you have problems with any of the forum members, just notify a staff member and we'll handle it accordingly.

Yesterday I figured out some more work related pet peeves:
1.  Shoplifters:  Yester two people decided to shoplift and got away with it.  First guy (older) opened up a bunch of bags of cherris and put some of each bag in his pocket in front of people, he got away since no employees saw him.  Second incident some younger guy stoled a bottle of liquor and got away as will.  
2.  The fact that I can't stop these shoplifter with force.  ;D  One of the funniest momments of the past five years at my work happened one night that I saw a couple of younger adults stealing some bluk candy  ::) and trying to walk out a locked door.  They eventually found the unlock door as I was walking in and I truned around and followed them to they get away car where two other people were waiting.  EVentually they saw me and were getting in the car when the driver started driving off causing the make shoplifter (who was still trying to get in the car) to fall on his *** and break the bottle of liquor that he had in his jacket ;D ;.  We called the cops and they came but the people drove off and ditched the car that was stoling.  I wish I could do this more but I can't even though I see alot of jerks shoplifting.
