I have been very happy with my amazon prime membership

One thing I cannot f*cking stand about the membership though is how Amazon and some “news” outlets pretend like their sales for Amazon prime members are anything beyond just a couple of dollars off **** that no one needs. Prime Day is a great example of this but I was also reading this article today about some “sales”

https://apple.news/AkpGFPgEzQui45ptylIjuMg

They have a dish drying rack that’s $2 off. Stop **** pretending that’s a “hidden deal” for prime members

After driving about 700 miles over the weekend I would like to reiterate that "left lane cruisers" should be sniped just before right curves where there are ditches or large fields to the left so that their cars just keep going straight and off the road surface. Their vehicles and bodies can be collected later. Or just left there as warnings to others to get the heck out of the left lane.

Most of my driving this weekend was DC area and Frederick area. Not much VA, just the GW Pkwy.

One of my coworkers ordered some chicken fried rice and asked for no vegetables. What kind of effing 4th grader move is that?

I had a roommate back in college who would probably have tried to leave out the rice too. He would literally eat nothing but meat. A common dinner for him was an entire value pack of pork chops from Giant Eagle, which he liked to pan-fry with curry powder.

It's pretty impressive someone trained a chicken to fry rice...

When I was in Australia my Korean flat mate was making fried rice with her Japanese friend in our kitchen. So I walked by and asked how they make fried rice. And Min-Young looks at me with a dumbfounded face and goes, "you fry the rice."

Okay

This is legitimately serial killer behavior.

My Thai SO would use that as grounds to hurt him.

In 2020, it should not take 4 god damn business days to electronically transfer money from one bank to another. My Citi>WF transfer finally went through, but now shows as Pending on the WF side. It's not everyone, because Marcus consistently transfers money within 2 days for me. **** banks.

My wife uses a MacBook Air 10” for her daily driver. She streams stuff on that tiny ass screen without being in full screen. It drives me nuts to watch her watch stuff in a 4x6” window inside a browser. :lol:

I have some old paint that I needed to throw away. I verify with our township if I harden the paint with cat litter or a commercial hardener the garbage men will take it. So I go to home depot and get about 15 packets of their hardener. Spend like an hour last night getting all the paint thickened up. Put it out this morning, and they literally take all the garbage except the paint. I even left one can out clearly showing it was hardened, but nope... all still there.

Throw them into trash bags and put them into your trash bin.

I had them all in trashbags, except one. I think once they saw the one, they decided to look through the others, cause the other trashbags were all gone through and cans left. In any event I followed the rules for them to take it per the township... so I'm just annoyed.

Yeah, this is what I do with stuff that otherwise can't be thrown away.

I get irate at people trying to be friendly on the road. There are rules. Follow them. Don’t be waving at people to go when you yourself have the right of way because you are trying to get into heaven or something.

I'm not really all that irritated by this, but Milkshake Factory is still running the ads where if Jake Guentzel scores, then the Jake's Shake is 50% off. I'm thinking Milkshake Factory hasn't spent much money on that particular promotion recently.

When I'm turning right onto the road I live on, I frequently blink my lights to let people who are coming in the opposite direction turn first. I do that because my house is the first on the road and, if I don't, by the time I'm turning into my driveway they inevitably nearly rear end me.

I love the people who flash their lights at me at a stop sign where I arrived first. Thanks for flashing, I was here first and was going before you anyway.
