    I believe so. Doesn't sound good, some news outlets are saying July 28th at earliest.

    “While some Taco Bell restaurants are experiencing supplier shortages, we are working diligently to replenish the supply of our tortillas (used for products like quesadillas and burritos) in those restaurants and encourage fans to try the Chalupa Cravings Box in the meantime. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and appreciate our customers’ patience.”

    I get it, you do not feel comfortable in the gender you were born in and may wish to have surgery at some point to correct that but do we all really have to walk around on eggshells because you have been Julie or Brad for 10 years that we have known you ? can't you just man or woman up and accept that some people will still call you Brad or Julie ? is that really too much for you to handle ?

    the other 98% of the country having no gender issues still have problems that cause them great mental stress from bosses, teachers and even their parents that last months or years and they don't lose it if you don't cradle them to sleep every night for the large part, but no; healthcare companies are changing software and forms because these people cant take it, jeez.

    if that girl lived near me and insisted on being called a goat rather than a girl, i'd do that; as long as I could call her mom a goat fucker.
    There is so much wrong with this post, but I'll keep it short.

    The mom came up with that on her own, it wasn't the child asking for it. I think it was really cool that her mom thought about it and came up with that.

    Also, I think it's just general politeness to address someone how they prefer to be addressed. Lots of conferences give out stickers that say "she/her," "he/him" and "they/them" to add to your badge so people know.

    I get my tacos from Herrara's on Mon and Fri down the street from me. No shortage that I've seen but then they only use corn and only one kind of meat--ie there's only one item on the menu, except there's no menu. Doesn't keep the place from being mobbed. If you eat at Taco Bell I have lost respect for you.

    As far as the gender thing, how about Itt?

    So are these people not even allowed to point out that they'd like to be referred to using a different pronoun or name? Doesn't seem much different from a married woman changing her last name to her husband's. I'm not offended if she tells me she's using her husband's name now.

    Some people go by two different names. For example, in Polyass, Skicougar is also known as ‘Dumbfuck’.

    Excessive lawn maintenance is pushing me beyond annoyed.

    My neighbor has about 100x100 feet of grass.

    Yesterday, he spent 2 hours mowing, edging, string trimming, and then blowing.

    Today, he mowed it again with his greens mower (he has 3 different mowers) and then blowing. It has been 90 minutes of noise today.

    In the typical summer week week he mows the lawn about 4 times, edges twice. Weekends are the worst, But at least we are usually gone.

    It is hours a week of noise. In the fall he uses the leaf blower in the middle of a fucking storm.

    His yard is his hobby and it is driving me, and my wife, nuts.

    The PUD here has a demonstration garden--they have these grasses that you don't have to water and grow to a certain size and then stop growing so you don't mow them. Not so great if you want to play croquet but a lot less work; if we had grass that's what we'd have.

    My new neighbor. Puts up a big fence for his dog and weed whacks around the whole thing constantly. The problem is the weedwhacker is the loudest most annoying pos I've ever heard. He's doing it right now! I'm close to buying him a new cordless Milwaukee and leaving it on his doorstep. He's kind of a douche to top it off.

    We planted a trumpet vine years ago that turned out to be very invasive. We pulled it out and kill it every time it shows up but it invaded our asshole back fence neighbor who rents the house out so she can't control it. (I don't know how we'll deal with it if they ban Roundup.)

    Shit that annoys you

    Maybe this belongs in the “but shouldn’t” thread....

    I live on a corner lot. My next door neighbor has 4 vehicles and parks two of them in front of my house. I usually don’t notice much, until i do my bi-monthly mowing (whether it needs it or not). When I do that it’s a pain in the ass to get the bit of grass between the sidewalk and one of their trucks because it’s a pretty steep slope there. If they’re gonna park their truck there, they should mow it. Assholes.

    Also, what the fuck is it with my neighbors getting picked up, and the driver honks 5 or 6 times to let the person know they’re there. Don’t these people text?!
    focus.

    Trying to do multiple deletes (Windows 10) and I get greedy and select too many and all of a sudden all the pics I've selected duplicate themselves--unselelcted, and I have to do it all over again. I guess I'm getting impatient and dragging and clicking at the same time.

    Businesses whose employees don’t identify themselves by name when you call. I want to know who I am talking to, and in this small town I likely know them.
