    When I get numerous messages that someone hacked our facebook and is trying to access Amazon, Ebay, and other sites. Almost predictable, I get an e-mail from Florida from nobody I know telling me I've been hacked and follow the "link" below to re-set my password. Sure buddy, go F urself.

    Right? I swear the last 4 things I had wrong with me I had already self-diagnosed through my own research. The doctor just verified it and wrote any script I may have needed.

    After watching the Frontline on AI last night, there may come a time in the near future that human doctors are less important.

    I'm all too familiar with this as well. I wrecked on the bike 12 days ago and got a Grade III concussion. I'm going to do the prudent thing and follow up with a TBI specialist next week. I expect the outcome of that appointment is going to be "Well, it sounds like you're already doing everything you're supposed to be doing. Have a nice day, here's your bill."

    Trying to car shop "locally" online. Now when you do a search within a certain radius, every nationwide dealer's vehicles show up in the results. Carvana's REALLY starting to irritate me. If I can't test drive it WITHOUT having it delivered across the country or to pay for the car first (like Carvana makes you do), then it's not a "local" car for sale, jerks.

    Shit that annoys you

    Newspaper “charity” ads. In one of our markets we have a local rag that pressures us to buy ads for causes. Most recent is for Veteran’s Day. It’s a full page ad, with a link and some language about the VA, and if we throw money at them they’ll put our logo on the bottom along with the 40 other businesses they sucker into throwing them money, with a line that says “We support our Veterans, and these committed sponsors do too!”

    Exactly $0 goes to any veterans, unless they happen to have veterans on the payroll. It’s a scam.

    Fuck the fucking employees of fucking Lufthansa for striking on the fucking day I fly to Istanbul. Fucking flight fucking canceled, but re-booked on an earlier fucking departure time. Of course, I fucking find out this morning and didn't have the fucking chance to budget an extra fucking hour on top of my fucking six (6) fucking hour drive to fucking Denver. Fuck this shit!

    Shit, they can even get to to the Fatherland now. But I did meet a British honey on the flight to London. She lives in Aspen now and we've already discussed skiing together this season.

    Now, that's annoying. You don't think we can read the word "three" and it needs further clarification?

    Seriously, though, I've always found this weird.

    I had a boss that said “if you ever put that in a document you’re fucking fired.

    Write it correctly the first time.”

    I always get a chuckle out of that.
    I still call it The Jake.

    It would be kind of fun to fuck with people and write something like "The bill shall be remitted within ten (9) days."

    I flew Lufthansa round trip from Frankfurt to Bucharest two years ago. That was interesting. They had some serious attitude. IIRC we flew in and out of terminal Z in FRA which definitely felt like the ends of the Earth. Even for FRA. The flight crew spoke German and English. All of the Romanian announcements were pre-recorded and played last. They seemed pained when interacting with the Romanian passengers.

    I love the New Yorker but I never read the Daily Shouts and Shouts and Murmurs. The vast majority are sophomoric humor or not humorous at all. The cartoons are usually pretty good though.

    Workaholic bosses and co-workers. Technology has made them unprecedentedly annoying. Seems that everywhere I've worked, you always got that person who's e-mailing and now texting all through the night. Wife's dealing with the same thing. Finally had to teach her about the scheduled Do Not Disturb function on her phone. Even more infuriating is how all these dingbats expect quick responses lest you receive a flurry of follow-up e-mails/texts. ...at 3 AM. Phone comes off DND at 7AM and it always immediately blows up with notifications.

    I swear all these people are popping Adderall as they are running around like hyperactive maniacs 24/7. Another common thread among them is they all seem to have NO life outside of work.

    My last boss lived in Georgia. Every month they would pick him up at SFO in the Company helicopter so he could work here for the next two weeks, than back home for the rest of the month.
    When he was here he liked working 10-14 hours a day, since his option was to sit in an empty apartment. He thought we should be at work with him. And I wasn’t ‘allowed’ to take a ski day when he was here, no matter how good the storm.

    I actually lasted for almost two years of him, until I had to say Fuck This, handed in my laptop and turned myself into a full time ski bum. The best decision I made in that period.
    I thanked him (when I received a phone call while at the top of Palisades at the Wood) during His retirement party, for motivating me to quit. I don’t think he ever really understood.
