    Ads on the TV's announcing it's your turn at the MVA. As if this process wasn't excruciating enough, the same 3 ads are on repeat.

    Thank dog a fresh Flying Dog is in my future. That does not annoy me.

I would never knowingly have a package sent that way, but you often don't know how it's being sent until after it's been shipped.
    Well then you're going to love the new UPS option. Getting a package today via sure post. Got an email from UPS on Tuesday that they'd gladly deliver it to house a day early, I just need to give them $3.50.

    The cost of sending a package annoys me. It seems to have gotten outrageous in the last few years. Private shippers are obviously subsidizing the heavily discounted rates the big shippers get. It's like going to the hospital or pharmacy without insurance.

    It is outrageous. In the recent past they told us the rates went up a lot because of fuel prices. Since fuel prices stabilized YEARS AGO the shipping prices haven't come back down. The market likes that boost in profit so it continues.

    Yeah, there is no doubt that individuals are subsidizing shipping rates for the big guys.

    Maybe we can get some of those 130 pound mexicans with calves the size of cantaloupes to deliver packages cheap. (I know bonespurs didn't say that.)

    Yeah, but, how will they be able to track your location and sell all of your news reading habits to the highest bidder without your permission or knowledge? Why do you hate capitalism?

    That the Me Too Movement (a good thing) has made me realize that some old songs I like are misogynistic and degrading. Where once I heard a beat and melody I liked now I hear words that make me cringe. Sigh.

    Ha! No that one I recognize as two grown people having a tête-à-tête. I was listening to some old school Motown. Gawd I love me some Motown and R&B.

    State government websites. Poor website design is annoying as hell, but state sites seem to be the shittiest of all. It took me several hours spaced over two days to get three W2’s keyed for a client in Oregon’s I-wire system. Jebus, if you’re going to make something mandatory, at least make sure it fucking works!

    OTOH, there's Hit the Road Jack--a song before its time.

    Oh gawd that one is bad. I knew that before Me Too. She's a Lady by Tom Jones is pretty bad too.

    I think women do get back every once in a while - take "It's a Thin Line Between Love and Hate" for instance. Love that one. The Annie Lennox version is gold (it's on the Medusa dbl CD set - I highly recommend getting it if you are a fan).



    There you are in the hospital
    Bandaged from foot to head
    In a state of shock
    That much from bein' dead
    You didn't think your woman
    Could do something like that to you
    You didn't think she'd got the nerve
    Actions speak louder than words
    Louder than words
    Louder than words
    Louder than words, come on



    Papa Was A Rolling Stone is good too - about a deadbeat dad.

    Funny how so many of the songs that were so popular when I was a kid are just so cringy now if you actually listen to the lyrics. Some of my top picks for high creeper factor (even if they're good tunes):


    The whole "father figure" thing always creeped me the hell out. Haha.
