    My original gmail, from when you needed an invite (got it here) is now full of spam and people from India and Southeast Asia typing their name wrong.

    Like bank accounts and other shit. I sometimes think of resetting their password and or stealing their money or changing their reservation

    Mostly I just report as spam.

    When a business website says they're open until 6, the phone message says 6, Google Maps says 2(?) Then you drive an hour and a half and you get there at 1:30 to buy something really big and expensive and they're closed

    Why does everyone stand right at the edge of the baggage carousel, instead of backing up a few feet and proceeding forward only when your bag comes around?!? When I build my airport, it’s going to have a painted line to stand behind until you see your baggage…

    These are the same people that stand up, and clog the aisle as soon as the plane stops.

    This. Guards with those long whippy sticks that are common in Asia. Block the carousel, get whipped.

    What, and deprive me of the pleasure of shoving someone out of the way to get to my bag on the carousel, and then smacking them in the kneecaps with the bag as I step away? That's the best part of flying.

    So you prefer to stay in your aisle seat and sniff butts?

    Bicyclists who refuse to use the multimillion dollar bike path over the mountain and instead opt for the winding highway with no shoulder, on a Saturday, causing traffic traffic jams.

    I must like to stand up vigorously and smash my head on the overhead bins, because I do it every single time and oftentimes the little button on my baseball hat accentuates the pain… FML

    People that fail to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk should face DUI level consequences.

    This is near the top of my list of pet peeves. Plenty of airports do have a line and even instructions asking people to stay back but it doesn’t work. Drives me crazy.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    Men with whippy sticks would fix that in a hurry.

    When a house close by explodes, burning the neighbor houses too, and you have to stand around wondering if yours is gonna burn too.l - that's annoying.

    Haven't been evacuated yet but standing by and ready. Essentials loaded...

    It's also kind of annoying that all the neighbors bailed immediately, even before any voluntary evac, so they can't make any effort to help defend their own houses. I'm running around with hoses, a bucket, and a shovel. Embers are annoying.

    Finished walking the dogs, going to put them back in the house and go hose more.

    Any particular reason the neighbor's house exploded? Good luck.

    So many people who just leave literal piles of shit and t.p.

    Also those asshole grouse who lie in wait to scare the living fuck outta me when I'm really stoned and crawling through bear tunnels in the willows. It kinda annoys me too that I still get stoned and feel like crawling through bear tunnels in some of the thickest griz country in the lower 48 sounds like a good idea...

    I don't think I'd put a lot of effort into defending the neighbors' houses. Just me. But hey.

    Watering my yard with hoses, but I walked up in the direction of the fire to check for spot fires. If neighbors yards burn, it's likely to spread towards mine. I live in high desert, big pine trees and scrub brush. Some of the neighbors do a much better job of clearing defensible space than others.

    Fire is contained, they're mopping up. Pics are of small spot fires about 1/8 mile away, two houses over from me - at the end of the shared road leading to my house.
