yep, that's my experience with raspberry pi's as well
great if they're in the background just doing their thing (like my pi-hole), a disaster if you want interaction
it's like browsing over 14.4K...

Stupid keyless go bullshit... I forgot my keys at my parents place and only realized when I stood in front of my place 60km away 45 min later. Luckily the wife was home to let me in, but then this morning I had to wait at the entry to the parking garage for someone to come by / drive out, because the second key for that (why is it a different key to the house/flat anyway???) is in the car! Honestly, I'd lose my head if it wasn't attached to my neck...

Customer panics last week “I need you ASAP!” “I’m needed in 3 places today and tomorrow, I can do Monday.” “See you then”

*Gets to customer site only to wait for over an hour because he won’t answer his phone or email.*

What pisses me off the most is he told me last time not to call his cell because he gets no service inside the building. I call his desk phone 3 times, nothing after being told to call that. I call his cell once, he picks up right away.

Been there, hated that. Customer says be there at 8 am, 10 am and they finally show up with keys so you can get into the buildings (I'd already let myself into the facility ;) ).

Well, driving out of a tight underground parking spot while still half asleep was a great idea... I'm gonna need a whole new side mirror ffs :|

Edit: well I sort of managed to clip/push/squeeze/finagle it back together - it's a giant bunch of plastic (and a wifi antenna lol) after all. The main body is broken in half, though and the cover is missing like half all of its retention clips... so I'll hit it with the ugly tape to make sure it doesn't just fly off on the highway. Seems stury enough, however and is back in usable/correct position anyway... but I've turned off auto-fold nonetheless.
