I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

Sorry, Squeat. It probably wasn't athletic sex that cracked them, either, was it? :rolleyes:

 

My annoyance, and it's minor, is that Bloglines is going to be completely down tonight for a while. I wanted to catch up on reading blogs, but don't know if I can.

Steve, I have no idea how you managed to hold a market in yesterday's weather. It was sideways-rain, thunder and lightning here in SF.

 

Another annoyance: Just got a shipment confirmation that the 3 items I really needed for my trip (out of the 5 items I ordered) from ExOfficio are out of stock and will not be backordered. When I called to cancel the remainder of the order, they told me "oh, it's already shipped." :rolleyes:

And in general, the north bay is wetter. It was just unbelievably bad and much of my stock got soaked. I'm getting over my anger but I still can't believe they would charge on a day like that. And yet I would be stupid to think they'd give the little guys who pay their salary a break.

 

That's the end of it. Thank you for the indulgence. Now go visit Reasons to be Cheerful.

It's Marin. They're always like that, at least in my dealings with the bureaucracy. The people kinda suck too. :rolleyes:

Having to, in about an hour's time, enter the maelstrom that is Grand Central in order to travel to Westchester for a family celebration that will be if history repeats itself in a mediocre restaurant. Having to return at a late hour and find a cab driver willing to relieve me of $15 so that I may get home.

The phrase "make no mistake"

 

Thanks. Really, thanks, because I was planning to. Make a mistake, that is, but now that you've said something I'll be sure not to.

 

What an annoying, trite, condescending 3 words that add absolutely nothing substantive to a sentence.

Sadistic Design

 

Sometimes life sucks and sucks with such precision based on a long chain of events all of which needed to occur in the specific order they occurred in order to create the perfect timing for things to suck that it just could not have happened by random chance alone.

Digital camera did not arrive. FedEx tracking says it's "out for delivery." FedEx tells me that their trucks have to be off the streets by 7:30 because of the strike contingency plan, which stays in effect until midnight. So unlikely that this camera is coming tonight. So I asked the guy - will it come tomorrow? No guarantees. If I don't have this camera by the time I have to leave for Mexico on Sunday morning, I'm going to be seriously unhappy.

 

Dammit, there was a reason I first wanted to buy this in a store and not on the web.
