Seeing how it wouldn't seem out of place between a "Summer Breeze" and "Margaritaville" sandwich, what else could it be called?

As far as I'm concerned, anything and everything good about The Eagles begins and ends with The Long Run. Henley's solo career produced much, much better music than his stint with the band.

 

Also: "Hotel California" is one endless, boring song.

Tired Shit:

 

Taking a Family Christmas Photo! Every year it's the same thing. I put it off this year until I thought we couldn't possibly take the photo and make a card out of it and send it out. Too late right? Nope digital bullshit card she's going to send out. This year my wife wants a pajama motif with all of us dressed in flannel pants and matching shirts. The fucking dog too. Not the cat because he won't stand for it but the wife, the son and the fucking dog. Oh yeah and me. This year I might accidentally let my penis hang out of the flannel pants and see if it gets by her. THAT would teach her ass to keep up with this shit with the motif's and the posing in front of the tree and me trying to beat the camera flash back to the pose. My dad would have never stood for this kind of indignity god rest him. Rant over.

 

Who is there to send this photo too anymore? Both our parents are dead. Grandparents dead. Aunts and Uncles five eighths dead. Cousins? Fuck the cousins. Brothers and sisters? Fuck'em too. They don't do this crap. They laugh at my expense. My older kids sympathize but that doesn't stop the Holiday Photo Juggernaut from sailing.

 

Ok now I'm done. Fuck.

post #1870 of 5894

I look forward to seeing you in a future edition of awkward family photos.

Why is it in these last few years that real life friends are becoming scarcer and scarcer?

I gave facebook a try for a few months but the whole process felt soulless to me. While I like keeping up to date with friends and am interested in how their lives are going the more they post on facebook the less I can catch up in person, which makes hanging out a much less connecting experience as there is little to say not already discussed online. Because of that my friends and i are getting together less and less.

Could the downtrend in the economy be because friends are no longer getting together at restaurants and movies?

Agreed. I have close friends from years back who never seem able to make a catch-up when a few years ago we'd see each other all the time. yet, they'll facebook chat for hours if they're in the mood and still say they consider me among their closest friends.

Personally, I think I liked it better when I wasn't talking to a screen the whole fucking time.

Doubt it. I was meeting a friend for drinks last night and the restaurant was packed! So much so that after a while we couldn't hear each other and had to leave.


Tired Shit: Restaurants that are designed to maximize noise, plus jamming table too close to one another, to create a "convivial" atmosphere. Plus seating groups of people so they are guaranteed to impinge on each other even though there are plenty of empty tables that would provide the ability to fucking have a conversation.

I tried Facebook for a few months, several years ago. I deleted the account, and never looked back.

 

If you think that being on Facebook creates a wall between you and your friends, try not being on Facebook when everyone else is. I had a group of friends that would all make plans on Facebook, and then the person who set up that particular hang out would add "...and would someone please fucking tell D.T.?" -- because picking up a phone or something was too difficult.

 

I'll tell you what, though: it lets you know who your real friends are, and who's actually making an effort in your relationships. I ended up phasing out that entire group of people and freed myself up from all of their drama and bullshit.

This is entirely not directed at you what-so-ever, but I'm also very tired of people still complaining about the economy. Probably mostly because I work with two fanatical Republicans who listen to Rush Limbaugh all day, and every time something doesn't go as planned, it's because of the economy.

Or try not being on Facebook at all. I never signed up at all, initially out of laziness but also because I was vaguely creeped out by the idea, and every development since then has just made me gladder of it. Despite what people like to claim, you don't "have" to be on Facebook just because "everybody else is."

As an aspiring stand-up comic, I use Facebook and Twitter to test out material.  Otherwise, I couldn't care less about it.  The voyeurism of it all freaks me out.

 

And agreed on the second point for sure.  Maybe I am not being fair about it since I am financially comfortable - but it's unfounded and annoying.  I don't mean to trivialize the people that are struggling either.  Interestingly, the most common people I hear complain about the economy don't vote.  Why?  Funny you should ask.  "They are all corrupt liars, and it doesn't matter in the end."

Tired Shit:

 

My character in Skyrim has 10 fingers and 10 toes but can only wear.....1.....fucking......ring. Maybe this should be in another thread but last night I was playing and it just pissed me off 'cause I have so many rings of power but can only wear one? And why can't I be the B.A. Baracus of Tamriel and just drape myself in necklaces and Charms and such? And for a medieval setting there sure are a lot of book reading going on....books everywhere. Stupid rings.

People who say "Is that in upper or lower case?" when I'm giving out an email address. I'm not sure who started this fucking myth but I'm tired of people looking at me with doubt and amazement when I inform them that it doesn't matter.

 

Until someone can prove to me that myemailaddress@hotmail.com and MYEMAILADDRESS@hotmail.com are two different addresses, I'm going to tell you to KiSs My AsS when you ask about upper/lower case email addresses.

So Omaha had some blizzard-like conditions last night. The bank I worked at decided to open at 10, to give everyone some extra time to travel to work. I arrive at work at 930, and there is some lady outside pounding on the glass doors. I walk up to the door and tell her, "I'm sorry ma'am, but we are not opening until 10am today."

Her: But your sign says you're open at 9! It's 930 and you're not open!

Me: Ma'am, I know it says 9, but due to the weather we are not open until 10 today.

Her: Well, some people have to get to work and can't wait until 10!

Me: I understand, but we are not open until 10 today. I'm sorry.

Her: This is bullshit!

Me: Ma'am! We DO NOT OPEN UNTIL 10am. That's IT.

Her: You should at least open the drive thru at 730 like it's supposed to be!

Me: The entire bank does not open until 10am, and that includes the drive thru! Our tellers aren't even here yet because of the roads!

Her: This is SUCH BULLSHIT!

Me: THERE WAS A BLIZZARD! And we are not opening until 10 because of it!

Her: I KNOW THERE WAS A BLIZZARD! BUT IT DIDN'T STOP ME FROM COMING OUT!

 

I probably shouldn't have raised my voice in response to her screaming, but good lord I loathe people sometime. And as a bonus, it turns out she is a co-applicant on a loan signing I am having within the week. That won't be awkward at all!

post #1884 of 5894

MrSaxon, yes!

 

I'd like to add "underscore" into the mix.  My old work email had that rather than a period.  I cannot fathom how many emails were sent to: FirstnameUnderscoreLastName@EmailAdress.Com
 

ETA: Some of these may be a repeat, but we have a pet peeves board at work that contains these improperly used, mispronounced, etc.

 

  • "I don't half to"
  • irregardless
  • "supposably"
  • "a whole nother"
  • here/hear
  • its/it's
  • "excetera"
  • "excape"
  • "pacifically"
  • "back round"
  • "the same difference"
  • a/an
  • to/too/two
  • there/their/they're
  • a lot
  • cannot
  • than/then

 

I could go on.  Some of the items include affect/effect & who/whom, but I struggle with those myself, so they will only be included as honorable mentions. :)

Oh man, I feel your pain.  I used to work summers at a seasonal seafood dive.  On weekdays, we'd arrive at 4:30 and open at 5, but the place only had outdoor seating.  I can think of numerous occasions where we'd pull into the parking lot, only to find some grumpy customers already sitting at a table, impatiently glaring at us as we were trying to open for business.

People driving with their high-beams on.  I drive a small car, so it's doubly annoying when it's a large car.

On that note, people who've replaced their lights with those eye-searing halogen ones. Unless your car doubles as a lighting rig for a runway, YOU DO NOT NEED THOSE.

I live in a rural area, near Knoxville. In city, there are plenty of street lights so brights, while annoying, are okay. But get to a rural area, no street lights, my eyes are adjusted to the darkness and my car's head lamps when I get blinded by Gandalf's car lamps.  More irritating, since it is hilly and mountainous, is when you know a car is coming over the hill towards you because you can see their lights reflected on trees, but they don't turn off their brights till they nearly pass you.  I saw you coming from a mile away, but apparently my vehicle and its inabilty to spotlight the moon were unseen.

 

I am contemplating a new car when my current one eventually dies. I love little cars. They are inexpensive to fuel, easy to park, and it keeps you out of most moving duties, but I am tired of getting highbeamed by an SUV/Station wagon/Truck. No matter where I move my mirrors, my car looks like a scene from an alien abduction because it is being brilliantly lit from behind.

post #1891 of 5894

MrTyres, I drive a 2010 Ford Fusion.  It has auto-dim mirrors and it is amazing.  Something to look into as well!

post #1892 of 5894

Oddly enough, when I was younger and driving my parent's suv ('95 Land Rover Discovery), I would always have people flashing their lights at me to kill the high beams when I had the low beams on.  It always made me feel like an asshole.  If I passed someone and kept the high beams on... no problem.

Land/Range Rover is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to unnecessarily bright low beams.

On the opposite spectrum, I am really getting tired when businesses do not followi their posted hours. I understand this case because of the blizzard, but it isn't opening hours that get me it's the closing hours that screw me always. Twice last night I was met by locked doors despite the hours posted on them.

The first was a gas station that has a gigantic 5 ft by 5 ft lit up sign declaring "open 24 Hrs". I pull up a 9:10pm to find several other people waiting outside the locked doors and darkened room of the cashier's office. I could understand this being fine if there was a way to pay at the pump, but this place doesn't have that. I could even see their cashier hiding in the shadows waiting for people to go away.

The second place was a chain Japanese fast food place. I called ahead and their voice service listed their closing hours at 9:30pm. I get their at 9:15 and the hours posted on the door said 9:30 as well, but the place was closed and an employee told me their hours have changed to 9pm.

What gives? Seriously I think there should be a law forcing businesses to obey their posted hours until their automated phone systems and front signage have been changed to reflect the new times. Even a printed piece of paper displaying the new hours taped to the front door would be aceptable.

As it is whenever I see stuff like this with no change listing the new hours I end up thinking the employees are just making the new hours up to get off of work early.

Literally the day after I besmirched the good name of the Eagles in this thread, Don Felder came into my work for a recording session. As we lined up for a group photo with him, I thought of my post in this thread, and I snickered, and that snicker is now preserved in that photograph for all of time.

Morally, I think you'd be fine. There's an asterisk in the ten commandmants that specifically covers this situation. But you get enough Mariah Carey fans on that jury and you could see actual jail time.

The flu, and consequently christmas being cancelled.  We usually visit with my mom's side of the family on christmas eve, and my dad's side christmas day.  Not religious, but it's always good to see family, eat too much food, and get drunk.  This year, however, pretty much everyone's sick, including myself, so my aunt that was hosting today bailed, as did the uncle who was supposed to have us tomorrow.
