    The indifference on not setting the clocks back an hour. We are two weeks beyond the end of DST and the alarm clock/radio on the nightstand is still on daylight time. You don’t even have to adjust the time, you just have to press the “DST” button and the time auto-adjusts.

    I spent about 8 years never adjusting any of my clocks. Not just the hour for DST. For any reason. Power outages, whatever. I just would memorize the conversion for each of them to real time.

    My lovely wife got used to it after a while, but one time-change she fixed them all and they’ve been right ever since.

    I liked it better the old way.

    Now on week 9 of waiting for the OR DMV to release my wife’s driving record to her new employer so she can give notice and move on. Fuck you, OR DMV, do your fucking job.

    I've been waiting over two months for Nevada DMV to generate a title for the Ducati I bought in Vegas. Can't register or title it here until I receive their document. Now it's almost too fuckin' cold to ride. Cocksuckers!

    The absolute worst employee I’ve ever worked with but we are so short staffed my boss lets it slide.

    Moving to a better job the Monday after Thanksgiving but I’ve still got to work with her a few more days.

    Smelly co-worker? Unleash your inner filthy hippy! Problem solved. I've done that and it works. As long as I don't have to do it for very long because it's easy to get so I can't stand myself.

    Is this where we go for something like what is the difference between hockey players and Mike's co-worker?

    Certain coworkers who think every little problem or inefficiency needs to be solved by automating a process. STFU, deal with it, and stop bringing it up to higher ups who manage by numbers. Gonna automate themselves out of a job FFS.

    Speaking of clocks, here's some shit that annoys me. Finally gave in last night and installed the latest Android system update on my phone. I hate doing it, because its like playing Russian roulette with what did they change to fuck with me. Well, I wake up in the middle of the night and check the time on my phone. It says in big numbers:

    03
    03

    WTF??? In my half awake state I couldn't tell what was going on. This morning I realize they've change to this completely unnecessarily large font that won't display the hours and minutes on the same line. I can't find a way to change it back. Anyone know how? FU Google. Who the fuck thought this would be a good idea?

    Long press on it and resize, or go to widgets and replace.

    No worky on the lock screen. To clarify this is a Pixel3. Apparently you can change the clock on other phone brands but after some reading google doesn't allow you to change it on Pixel models. The clock only goes back to a normal display when the phone is showing a notification. So the workaround is to give permission to an app like accuweather that a persistent notification. https://nerdschalk.com/android-12-ho...-screen-clock/ Annoying.

    Had to flip the breaker yesterday to change out a switch, reset the microwave and stove clocks and this morning they are like this. WTF.

    Now you’re complaining the micro is faster than the oven?

    I recognize this may be triggering for many here, but WTF is wrong with orthodontists? I don't want anything to do with you and your creepy harem of sisterwives or whatever they are, and definitely no one in your clan is putting their fingers in my mouth.

    I have to guess that isn't the family
    but the staffing manager certainly has a preference for no men

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's the harem of dental hygienists and receptionists. It's just...surely there's a less creepy way to approach this.

    Pretty much the opposite problem in engineering. There are women, but still quite male dominated.

    A friend of ours quit a journalism job and went to nursing school...must have been in his mid 30s at the time. All his study buddies were 20something young women, I remember thinking it sounded like fun, but might be hard to focus on the material.

    That depends on what “material” you are focusing on.
