There's still a hardy resistance group that refuses to wash their hands, so now we have both extremes of fucktards. :roll:
Wanna give “name and shame” a try? It’s disturbing enough during normal times, but downright hazardous during this cold/flu/COVID season.

I was at birthday dinner for my older siblings and couldn't believe how many old people were out and about. One family had their mother out and she was on flipping oxygen! Of all people to not go out during a virus pandemic surely would be someone like that.

Some people don't want to flatten the curve they want mom's oxygen off... permanently

Surveys! They always ask the wrong question, or fail to give you an option to convey a proper response. I just did a speed test on my internet and when the results pop up, there is a question. The question was, How does Spectrum's (my ISP) service meet your expectations? the ranking goes from 1) Much Worse, 3) As Expected, 5) Much Better.

In my case, it is as expected, but it does not allow me to convey that is because they have a terrible reputation.

I'm trying to find a place to get Cat7 cables: either flat, or slim, in white or black, 10ft. I need 'em quick. I can't find a single listing on Amazon that can have them arrive any sooner than a month from now.

Funny, I haven't heard anyone say that about American "food" either! McDonald's bags on the side of the road don't count. :tease:
It fucking pisses me off to no end that even in 2020 in America, throwing out your trash from your car is ok. It's technically illegal but with how much trash I see on the side of the road, it very well must be ok with everyone. I thought there would be less now that most people are working from home, but it isn't! Where it was clean along one of the main roads in my neighborhood, a cup from McDonald's is now in the grass along the road.

Fuck people.

Now that I'm working from home for over a week, I'm getting used to using my private keyboard with my work laptop. Problem ist, the shortcut for "change desktop" is a different one than on my private machine. So I often use the wrong one...

Something I've noticed: The day our neighborhood has trash pickup, there's a HUGE up-swing on the amount of trash that is floating around. It tapers off the rest of the week as far as new loose stuff being blown around, but the old trash still sticks around when it's caught/stuck somewhere.

I keep forgetting to plug in an extension cord under my desk, so that i don't have to keep crawling under my desk to plug in and unplug my work-from-home laptop every time I need to leave the room with my laptop.

Both of us are working from the same office/bedroom, but she's on a desktop and can't leave as easily when we've both got conference calls to take at the same time.

1) I really want to make foccacia bread, but no friggin' stores have any yeast in stock, unless I want a full 1lb bag which is, like, 12x more than I'd use before it went "bad".

B) Temporry pay cut for at least the month of April. 15%. First, we had to furloh the smokin-est hottest woman in the office (she wasn't very smart, but super nice), and now this. But, i still have a job.

III) The people who misunderstand the local shelter-in-place, going both ways: Both from people who think that they can meet friends in a park and play basketball as long as there's less than 6 of them playing at a time, or still think it's a good idea to go the grocery store almost every other day with several people in tow...and then others who berated me because I posted a photo of a beach. I took the long way home, pulled over, took a walk a couple of blocks by myself, and took a photo of the beach where there was a lone surfer, and two people walking about a 1/4 mile away.
