    The "Things that annoy me" thread

    People who join a forum or a facebook group and feel the need to start a thread that just says, "Hello!" or "Thanks for the add!", and those places don't have any sort of mechanism for this to be tucked away somewhere and instead gets just as much exposure and priority as well-thought-out, real...

    I don't like using "plain" WD-40. It's a poor-quality lubricant, and dust gets caked to it super easily. I've also had it drip out of hinges, and I definitely don't want it to get on my nice new oiled floors. I've found Pam non-stick spray to be about as effective as a lubricant as plain ole'...

    What car(s) did you hate at launch but have grown to like as time has passed? Or vice versa

    I'm with you there. When it was released, there was a lot of "Ford Fusion" front, and Mustang+Aston rear". I think it out grew that impression even before the upgrade, and I'm regularly pleasantly surprised whenever I get to see a newer one in the wild. On Saturday, I parked next to a nice dark...

    I should have known not to try to research "silicone lubricants", for my squeaky door hinge, on my work computer

    The use of this term as if it's an actually, like, real word with a technical meaning, and used throughout any conversation, multiple times. It was a cheeky nickname, like Bennifer or Brangelina or Willicity H Muffman. Stop using it as a replacement for every instance of "exit" or "leave".

    Trash caught fire in a garbage truck, and the truck dumped it. In the street to prevent damage to the truck.

    ⁷ Ah, I see. No, everyone's email signature, above their cell phone number and company social media link icons, listed their pronouns.

    Well, let's say that they have an employee who is living their life as a male. But biologically female, and gets pregnant. They have multiple mothers quarters within their office, but it is usually one larger room, with private areas sectioned off by curtains. Each one of these smaller areas has...

    I told you guys about my one client who had a lengthy discussion about how to create gender neutral mother's rooms, right?

    The name was Parnith (par-NEETH), and it was a she. I guessed that one wrong. Hell, my local rep for a fabric manufacturer us named Leslie. A really nice old guy. My right hand helper is Rupa. I thought I had this one as a slam dunk, because I used to work with a guy named rupa. Well, it turns...

    I work downtown sort of near the transamerica Pyramid. I have clients and offices from everywhere around the city, from the ballpark to the Marina, to Union square, to Dogpatch. It's gotten noticeably worse in the last...oh...3-6 years. I have one client that is down by the ballpark, and I...

    I received an email today from a client that included their preferred pronouns. Apparently it's a company-wide initiative for them. I'm thankful for this. Not from a gender identity perspective, but from the perspective of someone who will ALWAYS guess the wrong gender for a name from another...

    Laptop compartments in seemingly the vast majority of backpacks. OK, so they have a separate slim pouch for a laptop to keep it from moving around. Cool. And that slim pouch is sometimes also heavily padded to protect the front and back of the laptop. And sometimes even the sides. But then if...

    Oh, dont get me wrong...karaoke is awful by any definition, but made even worse by someone who is supposed to be performing and is just standing still, awkwardly making eye contact with everyone, with their one hand grasping their other wrist, as they lazily stare off into the middle distance...

    It annoys me that so few people do anything entertaining during a song's guitar solo, while singing karaoke.
