Part of my job is confirming POs when customers make purchases. I have one customer that drives me nuts. I'll get their PO, make the order and then send a confirmation and estimated ship/arrival date. Two days later, like clockwork, I get an email from address I sent the confirmation to, asking for confirmation and estimated ship/arrival.

I'm sitting at a four-way intersection. A pedestrian pushes the "Walk" button. Pedestrian sees that no cars are coming and then decides not to wait for the walk signal and jaywalks. Now all the cars at the intersection get to wait for the "walk" signal (that the pedestrian is not using) to cycle before they can go.

FFS... Either wait for the signal you triggered or, if you weren't intending to wait for it, just jaywalk without pushing the button and making everyone else pay for your impatience.

I'm personally convinced those walk signal buttons are placebos, like the DOOR CLOSE buttons in elevators. They're only there to give us a false sense of control while serving no real purpose.

I was in this town called Canmore (it’s in Alberta, Mikes not there man!). I almost got run over by a middle eastern man driving a delivery truck, cause the walk signal, and the traffic lights don’t cooperate with each other there. I pushed the walk button, there was a walk signal so I stepped off the curb, just as I started to follow through with my body the F**ken green light sets all the cars into motion while the walk signal was still on. It’s a good thing delivery trucks are huge. I was able to see him change lanes and make a right hand turn into the lane I was about to cross.


As for the elevator button you must not have had the pleasure to repeatedly close the door on someone you don’t like...I have! Lady in my community trash talked my stepdad (fire chief), and my uncle(first responder) cause her useless son started a fire in a steel barrel , so he could burn garbage, then he had the wonderful idea to go inside to have a shower, the fire got away, burnt up his brothers furature that was being stored in a C-can beside the house, and nearly burnt this heavy equipment company, so his mom got on bookface and started bitching for another fire chief cause he wasn’t at the fire as soon as it started...so my brother started asking her how the fire started, they began to argue, then the woman called my mother names, and went as far as to try and get her fired, a few months later I notice this woman in a hotel lobby, so trying not to cause a scene in public I made way to the elevator, the doors just about closed when I heard her say wait! So I popped my head out of the elevator, and said nope, then I used the close doors button 3-4 times...yes she kept pushing the open buttons, and I kept pushing the close buttons on my side until she gave up.

They do that same shit here. Along with having zero clue how to time red light sequences properly. You'll get turned loose by a red light, only to go 100yds and have the next one turn yellow on you. FFS podunk, if you can't figure it out, at least go take notes from somewhere that can or just hire whoever set theirs up.

***GMADE!!!***

You've had years to fix your shoddy POS website, enough time to develop and produce several new models, in fact, and your website still looks like a sixth grader started it in Go Daddy and got bored and quit halfway through. Seriously!?

My official rant:

Why in the hell do we have trophy trucks and trick trucks!? They are one and the same, someone decided to copyright the term "trophy truck" and now every one else has to say "trick truck". F U stupid copy right mongers.

I once went to Tamiya and was hit by the same feeling.

Too many ads everywhere. I hate how fakebook now places ads in the middle of videos.

Have you ever watched "maniac" on Netflix? This reminds me of that. They have what's called add buddies, they will pay for your purchase but a live person sits with you and reads ads the whole time

My rant for today: Getting ****ing OLD!!

Got out the chainsaw and cut up half of one of the Bartlett pear trees that fell victim to Florence, then trimmed up two others and stacked up all the limbs to haul off. Started at 2, finished at 6:15.

It's 8:45 now and I can't ****ing move. My ears and toes are ok, everything else is sore. I used to throw a bigger saw around for 10-12 hours a day when I logged. WTF, life??
