    Re: Got A Gripe?

    Once again to the breach.......I hate those shopping trolleys that you have to stick a $2 coin in to use it and when you're done you can't find a trolley bay near you to get the money back, so you have to push the trolley all the way back to the store.....in the rain too.....it used to be 20 cents and the kids would beat each other to take your trolley back to get the 20 cents....and above all else I hate shopping trolleys that get damaged wheels and steer the damm thing into the side of the isles while you wrestle with it.

    Above all else, and without any exception I DETEST WITH A PATHOLOGICAL HATRED all the TV shows that keep sumarising the content of the previous ten minutes that preceded the 5 minute long commercial break......the Mythbusters have this to a fine art and can make a ten minute show last for an hour before they break or prove a myth.

    Re: Got A Gripe?

    When dining out in a restaurant and someones kid is screaming its fool head off and the adult with this little brat does nothing to shut this little sh*t up!! And then gets upset when those people around them give them a piece of their mind!! People with screamers should keep the little sh*ts home until they have learned how to behave in public!! But then, these same adults probably no nothing about how to act in public anyway. There, I got it off my chest. Bob

    So Friday the head idiots in charge up here in NH have outlawed cell phone use.
    Truckers can still use their radios, & the cops can still use their laptops while driving but somehow a phone is more dangerous...
    So now my lame brain helper will be able to hear my every conversation..

    They just completely outlawed cell phones, or made NH a hands free state? We are hand free here in CT and it doesn't make a rats a$$ difference.

    Re: Got A Gripe?

    here's my gripe for today; the other welder at my facility is attempting to fab three 2"x2"x1/4" angle iron frames approximately 25" x10" but can't figure out how to cope one leg of the angle so they form a rectangle and get the outside dimension he wants. he's cut them apart a few times then had to fill a half inch gap after "forgetting" how the torch worked. when the frames were done he asked for the sledge cause they were warped. he likes to say that because we get paid the same we are both equally qualified. this is a half day job max maybe 1 with installation cause it's in a bad spot. he's been fumbling his way through this for almost four and hasn't put the expanded metal in. shoot me. just flicking shoot me now!!

    I'm in agreement with you Gravel, Doc ought to be allowed to shoot this guy that is equally qualified since the pay is the same. Then draw both paychecks if he can keep up with his work and still produce on the scale of the now deceased worker, too. Can ya handle it Doc?

    No Doc, I said "YOU OUGHT TO BE ALLOWED", so that would excuse you from any crime and getting locked up because of it, if somehow you were allowed to do this and then collect both checks for doing both jobs in the same time. Not that I was suggesting you do anything illegal. But if the judicial system would "ALLOW" you to do this, then you should be able to collect your check AND his, if you are doing the work of both of you in the same time frame. Just trying to clear up what I was saying here. It's like the Judge says "Yeah Doc your right, the guy doesn't deserve to keep drawing the paycheck. If you can do your job AND his in the same time, you deserve BOTH checks, Here use MY gun to shoot him." Then you would be in the clear.

    How do you manage to get banned. I squeal, make rude remarks about nearly every variety of shopper, fart, ride the cart, wheelie, and make chicken noises, she's on to me. She seems amused!
    Once after a 9 hour drive coming home from vacation, we had nothing perishable in the house. We stopped at an all night supermarket. The place was nearly empty. I looked over my shoulder, saw no one and let rip the biggest fart of my life. A beautiful, elegant lady seemed to appear out of nowhere! She must have been so close I didn't see her! She loudly said EXCUSE ME! and raced ahead to escape me and my atmosphere! I felt awful, but couldn't stop laughing.
    Still she drags me along.

    The older NI Cad batteries are all made up of C cell rechargeable batteries with connectors soldered in place. There are about 100 videos on you tube showing you how to replace your own.

    If your call center has voice activated prompts make sure the DAMN thing can understand redneck accents.

    If you cant fix it with a hammer, it must be an electrical problem.

    Re: Got A Gripe?

    Hi, we have late night shopping at our shopping centres on Thursdays and Fridays 'till 9pm.......who in their tiny minds decided that shelf stocking on those days would meet the needs of anyone coming in after 4 pm.......the dregs remaining on the shelf are not fit to feed the homeless, having been torn apart by the previous mob doing their weekly shop......so why stay open late if the regular goods are non existent?...grrrrrrrrrrr.

    It does pay though to hang around till 8.50pm on those days to get the cooked chickens at half price, but one day I had to fight some old dear who tried to scoop the lot....at least 6 chickens in one go, the bitch......hee hee, my ticket number was before hers so I got the lot too for my freezer, but I let her have one just to be polite.
