What makes me crazy--self appointed moderators---and seasoned members who dont even try to use the search feature.  Doesn't phase me a bit when a newb does something newbs do.
If a newb mistake is that painfull do a PM, keep it private and offer help, not pour salt in the wound.

Actually, I've found the search feature to work very well in our second incarnation, at least it does for me.

...is that in Ill-inois a dumass can go to prison for three years over an oz of reefer but an aggravated DUI gets probation and in some locales cops can go to work under the influence as long as they're not over the legal limit.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

I don't know.  I like a bit of salt now and again.

Lazy people make me :censored: crazy.  :banghead:

One block away from the building that I work in is a McDonalds. During the breakfast and lunch rush the :censored: lazy people line up in the drive through instead of parking their cars and going inside. What always ends up happening is that the line gets so long that it spills out onto the 4-lane road and the right lane gets clogged with the lazy :censored:. Yet when you look inside the store there's no line at all!

What's really interesting is if you walk past the line of cars and look inside. 100% of the folks waiting are all :censored: overweight. Imagine that?

Stupid, fat, and lazy people make me crazy.

Oh my.  When I do eat at McDonalds (a rarity indeed) I take the drive thru because it's faster than being waited on inside.  Seems all fast food places and businesses with drive thrus put priority on those 'fat' customers rather than the skinny ones in line.  I'm just taking advantage of a fact of life.  I don't like it but what can I do to change the system.  It's the MAN that's at fault here, not us fat guys in cars waiting for our heart attacks in a bag.  ;) :)   By the way, I've never been impressed by McDonalds service either inside or out, I prefer Wendy's if at all possible with Burger King next.  Course I use the drive thru with them as well, Mr. Skinny Guy.  >:( ;) :)

It's been a LONG time since I've eaten at McDonalds but I walk past there to get to my credit union for some cash. If I'm in the mood for fast food I'll walk another block over to Burger King. Good service and never a line. There used to be a Wendy's (I also prefer Wendy's) in this area too but it burnt to the ground (rumors of insurance fraud) and was never rebuilt.

I don't care if these folks eat themselves to death but when the :censored: line is out in the road and I'm on the bike, I do care. I especially care when folks are trying to turn left from the opposite lanes and want to get in the LONG line.

When you visit your favorite restaurant for the 801st time, you get sick from food poisoning, the bathroom all weekend, but you refuse to give up, because well, its your favorite, only to find they have been closed by the health department.
Now where do I go for lunch every Friday while at work?
I need to find a new job.

AWOS saying 0-5 winds, you look at the socks (several) from aloft and they're pointing in various directions, and horizontal to boot. Combine that with fine-tuning soft and short field in prep for a check ride.  >:(

Maybe you could have lunch at the health department; after all, it sounds like your current situation is their fault. Maybe you could get a job AT the health dept. and enjoy less toxic food while at work?

When your in a hurry and take the elevator and then accidentally hit the wrong floor. So now you have to stop at that floor, WAIT for nobody to board and the doors take forever to close.

That makes me mental.  >:(
