Trivial things that make you surly

"You know what they say about our state (insert state), wait 15 minutes and the weather will change."

Yea, Texas and California and New York and Wisconsin and Florida sometimes drop 20 degrees in 2 hours and all the sudden it snows. Or it is sunny and starts raining.

Thats called weather on the planet called earth. It has nothing to do with political boundaries. Fok those 28 iq people who think they have extreme weather in their state.

Wow, not only are you a cannibal, but a glutton too.

Got a summons today to appear in Houston City Court as a witness.  The fuckstick that rear ended me on I10 and totaled my car is contesting his ticket.  I’m going to ask for the death penalty.

Well, it's like this....

Went to Autozone over the weekend.  Everytime I said something or asked a question he responded with "copy that."  Must have been around a dozen godamn times. I could feel my eyelid start twitching toward the end.

Motherfucker we aren't NASA pilots, we're just two dudes talking car parts.  Stop that shit.

Got an email yesterday from a fishing guide in Arkansas that said it - really, Arkansas.

If elected president, I will, by executive order, correct the sloppy and often incorrect naming of our nation's rivers.  Every river shall take the name of their largest contributor by volume, tracing all the way back to the source. 

So no more nonsense like the Ohio starting at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela in Pittsburgh (Three Two Rivers Stadium) and ending at Cairo, IL, despite it delivering more water there than the Mississippi.  The Ohio will flow from northern PA, through southwestern NY, and all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.  I take no official position on if the state of Mississippi must rename itself, though I'd encourage it. 

The Tennessee River shall run through Asheville.  A name change was already due, 'French Broad River' is offensive these days.

Our children will be wiser and better for it, and more efficient in not having to waste time wading through Wikipedia searching for aquatic truths.

I was hoping for:  woman at home with nothing to do, internet access, a video camera, and a dresser full of hot lingerie scenario...  Instead, post did not deliver, would not read again

Under your maniacal scheme, our southern border will become the Rio Concho.

The son was at Lackland, and said he'd never seen worse driving in his life. Tailgating,  15-25 over MPH speeding regularly, and sudden lane changes, terrible no on ramp lanes made for even worse habits, and road rage incidents.

 

you can thank aggy for that one. TXDOT is basically an aggy engineer work program.

Next door has convinced me that most people should not have pets. Lost dogs, lost cats, whose dog is this? It’s way too much for some people to handle animals correctly

My f'n 3 year old $99 ASUS monitor is dying. I only ran it 24/7 from the time I hooked it up. Cheap Chinese shit. I ordered a Scepter replacement.

But not in southern California. Weather changes so slowly here. Sunshine today, sunshine tomorrow, some Santa Ana winds, may be some clouds on Wednesday, and a sprinkling of rain on Friday. I wish we had seasons, and some rain between the months of April through November.

What about mudslide season and fire scorched earth seasons?

2 places I've seen major weather pattern changes you could measure in 10-15 minute increments:

 

Jackson Hole in late April.  Cloudy, windy cold, to sunny and a warm 50 or so in a 10 minute span, then it clouded back up, and rained, and then it got windy again, temp dropped, and it started snowing/sleeting all within about a half hour period.

Ireland on the southwestern coast:  sunny, warm, cloudy, rainy, windy, sunny, warm, cloudy, windy, rainy... all in about 15 minute cycles.

Can you add:  A name can only be used with 1 river?  A Colorado River in Arizona and Texas is confusing to those that don't understand the Continental Divide.  By your executive order, the river that runs through Austin would be called the Texas River or, better yet, Rio de Tejas.

No one in my household can grasp a simple procedure with the Apple TV remote. Pick what you want to watch, press play, put it back in the little sliding drawer under the coffee table.  It will always be there when you need it, even if you need to pause your show!  It will be there for anyone who wants it later! When you are done watching tv—- yep, back in the drawer. It never needs to be anywhere else. 

It does not need to go to the kitchen, it does not need to go to anyone’s room, you don’t need to put it next to you on the couch where it can fall in between sofa cushions and then I have to look for it.

Web programs that are SLOW AS SHIT. I have to use this program for schedules, milestones, work loads, etc. Every time I make one small update, it spins for a few seconds. We've complained to them for a few years and they keep promising it'll get better. I think the program in itself is decent, but I hate using it.

My first post in this thread and I have not read the thread in its entirety so apologies if already covered but:

I collect WW2 memorabilia so I am always going to flea markets, antique shops, and militaria/gun shows.  When I ask how much that they will take for something they give me a number.  I usually counter unless I know that we are too far apart on the deal.  When I do give a counter they go into full-mode selling speech describing what I am looking at and how "rare" it is and its inherent value.

Haggling.... how does it work ?  That, and those collectors usually have a more personal attachment to their collection than just some guy peddling vacuum cleaners.  I've seen the same thing with the civl war collectors.

I’ve probably already mentioned this, but I think it’s worth say again:

If you are an American and you are obsessed with the British royal family, you should walk into traffic. Loser.

Why ?  I mean I don't get it either, but everybody has their thing snek man.

I'm selling IKEA shelving on FB Marketplace. I listed for $30, and some guy is offering me $27...

Sorry bud, I'm not making change for your $10.

Not a fan of the Royals but I was in London a few years ago and I was able to observe "Trooping the Colo(u)r" Birthday Parade for the Queen.  It was pretty neat to see the Welsh Guards, Grenadier Guards, Scots Guards and the Coldstream Guards, along with the Royal Family and other dignitaries in all of their regalia parade down the avenue leading from Buckingham Palace.

That is a bit crazy.  Last weekend a guy wanted $20 for a picture.  I offered $15.  He said, "No, the best I can do is $16".

Yet another weather related / I live here post.

Talking to a customer today in alaska, he was asking about the snow storm. Always being a one upper, he claims that is a daily occurrence. Whatever.

Anyhow I tell him I would love to live up there but the winters would be brutal and possibly depressing. His response?

"When you come up here you either stay or leave"

Seems like a response that dirtbike would say now that I think about it.
