Now that right there is just funny. And true. But mostly funny. And mostly true.

That's one of my motto's....'People are basically stupid.'


 :thumbs:

I might rearrange that motto just a lil though.

Basically, people are stupid.



~ half of the population have an IQ at or below 100. To add to that problem, common sense isn't very common at all.

Drive-Thru's make me crazy and annoyed...lol.

And not the Drive-Thru itself...but the people that line-up in them (too far).

Maybe it's a phenomenon strictly related to the proverbial Canadian coffee shop, but when a drive-thru line-up leaves the parking lot of the establishment, and then blocks intersections and traffic for a couple of city blocks, it makes me crazy...lol.

I counted 27 cars in a coffee shop drive-thru a few weeks ago, and traffic on that street was blocked in both directions.

Meanwhile, the parking lot is empty and there's no customers at the counter inside...lol.

Is this normal behavior? :o

I agree.
It's "normal" stupid behavior.
I've been told I'm not normal. I almost always go inside on the few occasions I visit the "fast food" places. It's almost always faster and I can see what they gave me wrong before I leave instead of when I'm five miles down the road.

Another thing about drive thrus.....
Why don't they put the menu board 10 car lengths back so you/they can decide before getting up to the order window? Some do it, most not. Really slows down the process.
Annoying, which gets me crazy just watching.
This street bike thing is all new to me.
Snowmobiles-I have a bunch of those.

Crazy and annoyed at the server (drive thru) and myself for not checking the bag to make sure all my food is there and correct.  Half the time it isn't.

Liars make me crazy and annoyed.   >:(

I get an e-mail offer from Verizon for a free Galaxy S5. It says FREE today only. No asterisks with fine print attached, a FREE phone.

Ok, I'll bite. I follow the link and get to my account with the phone that I want right there in my cart. Wait, $600?  :o Hey!

I try the online chat, too busy. I breakdown and call them, expecting to be on hold forever and a day. I get right through.

Ok, what about that free phone?

"I'm sorry sir, you're not eligible for a free upgrade at this time"

It says FREE and not a damn thing about upgrading.

"I'm sorry sir, it should say something about being eligible for an upgrade in order to be free"

It doesn't, click.

 >:(

Exactly why I never go to any retail establishment on black Friday. No "deal" is worth dealing with that.

Or fighting the traffic or the crowds.  Ain't for me.  I'll do my shopping the old fashioned way...on-line.

I normally agree with that but we ran out to Home Depot for a plumbing repair (women! They need ALL the water in the sink to go down the pipe! Sheesh) and it was not bad at all. In fact, rather empty! We even wandered around a bit and bought two new garbage barrels (pretty highfalutin', huh?). Well OK, one garbage barrel and one 6 gallon galvanized, covered pail for ash....

I'm at the point of my career where I can take off Wed., Thurs and Friday of Thanksgiving week. Especially Friday, on that day we head south out of town and go on a road trip to lesser populated rural areas, this year it was the small towns of Wayne Co. Ohio.
