    Water heater pilot light keeps going out, of course right before we head out of town.

    this is annoying, baffling and amusing. neighbors who recently moved in got their house number wrong for a bunch of different pieces of mail - it comes to me. who the fuck does that?

    Do you need hot water while you’re gone? Turn it off (hit the gas shutoff, too) and deal with it when you get back.
    focus.

    Rental cars that lock on their own. When you left the keys inside thinking it was unlocked.

    Obviously. But it's going to suck to come home Sunday after 5 days of camping and not have hot water. Going to call around tomorrow first thing to see if I can get somebody tomorrow.

    Internet search says that it's probably a bad thermocoupler, doesn't seem like a large repair.

    Thermocoupler?

    I’d check the overhead rotary girder first then, failing that, the flux capacitor.

    I’m useless.

    Thermocouple change is a pretty easy job... as long as it’s accessible. Water heater in tight quarters makes it a lot more challenging.
    Because rich has nothing to do with money.

    It's accessible. But I don't know what the fuck I'm doing; in matters like this, my city boy upbringing shines through. YouTube does make it look easy, but not gonna fuck with it, since before tonight I had no idea what a thermo coupler was.

    Fix the thermocoupler. Duh.

    People who can't walk away from a non-critical issue and bitch on the internet.

    It turned out to not be the TC, I had this guy in and it was this.

    Go away. Take a cold shower.

    Danno I've done maintenance in my house using youtube and I guarantee I am way less handy than you. Give it a shot. I think i actually replaced a thermocouple and picked one up at Grainger for $5. IT was just a remove and replace, screws and wires. So easy even a caveman can do it.

    Give it a go, what's the worst that could happen? Return to a smoldering pile of ash after a 5 day camping trip?

    People who decide that their artistic flair is just what nature needs to be more ‘gram worthy. I am looking at you rock stacker, you over there making inukshuks, fuck you guy starting a “tradition” by hanging a pot at the top of Tea Pot hill! There is absolutely nothing in your little pea brain that is going to improve Mother Nature - and when everyone is doing it, it’s just stupid- stop it.

    Haven't seen any glass. Just the occasional peels and pistachio shells and whatnot. Not a huge deal, but annoying.

    We have a dyslexic mail carrier. We get tons of mail for a neighbor whose address is the same as ours with 2 of the 5 numbers switched. I drop off her mail, but we never seem to get any of ours from her, which worries me.

    I don't mind the artistic rock piles too much; it's the trail cairns left by people who have no idea where they're going that piss me off. Or this--doing the hike around Castle and Basin Peak and some jackass had blocked off the main trail with sticks in favor of a side trail going up Basin Peak. Fortunately I knew the right way but I wonder how many people were misled.

    Piling rocks everywhere there are rocks, hanging padlocks on every bridge -- it's a millennial thing and one more reason to hate them ; - )
