    No, absolutely not, a van should have multiple TVs, However, it could be why Costco have failed to accommodate delivery to your humble abode.

    Buddy had a used Chevy conversion van that had a CRT TV and VCR. One of the last models to have that. He ripped those out right quick and replaced them with a LCD and DVD player.

    The only place Costco can deliver those TV's is if you live on a boat in LA Harbor.

    Betting lines on nearly every sport now. It seems you can't watch almost any sport now without the betting lines on games and commercials about betting web sites. Football pregame shows used to be about football, then it changed to a big chunk devoted to fantasy leagues, now a lot of gambling crap and then rather than talk about winning/losing they seem to be focused on beating the spread.

    I was watching golf yesterday and the bottom 3rd of the screen was taken up by odds to win the tournament, in the middle of the round. The fact that many of the betting sites practically guarantee your first win up to hundreds of $ just to sign up tells me that most people are losing a lot of money. I have a friend that bets quite a bit that i would put in an occasional bet in years past in the age of a bookie, but i won't sign up for these sites. It just seems like it would be too easy to click away money I don't want to lose. Sort of like my wife (wrong thread jong) buying tons of crap we don't need after getting Amazon Prime . A couple of clicks and you're out a few hundy.

    One of the many reasons that I’ve never understood people’s affinity for road biking. Especially in busy areas. Sorry, but maybe find another sport, I hear pickball is all the rage.

    Going out to eat now…with the lack of workers it’s now a minimum 90 min deal to get a burger and a beer and it all costs 20% more than it did 20 months ago.

    Eating outside a restaurant in a separated off area of the parking lot. There's a car parked right next to us. Lady comes out of the restaurant, gets in the car, turns on the engine, and starts texting and otherwise playing with her phone. I gave her the evil eye. It worked. I should be used to it booting up on the back of my car next to assholes who need to leave the engine on for who knows what reason. But I'm not.

    Assholes do not need reasons. They just are.

    These are normally the people who also dilly-dally while exiting the plane. Which is infinitely worse.

    Especially when you've got a tight connection and you're towards the back of the plane.

    Yelling down-ladder and make a hole in such situations doesn't seem to bring the laughs. Most people don't get the movie reference.

    Back in the day--way back in the day--when a plane was getting in late they would ask people to wait until the folks with tight connections could get off. I even had them hold my connection for a short while so I could make it. I assume there were more people than just me that needed to make the flight and that was back when if you missed a connection or your connection was canceled they would put you on another airline so it cost them money. That was back when there were empty seats on airplanes. I've told all this to my kids but they just laugh and think I'm senile. Which I am, but it's still true.

    Shit that annoys you

    I remember when people just started to just shrug it off and get up anyway and ignore that request. Merica!

    Agreed. Idiots sitting in their seats as the people in seats in front of them are getting out instead of them getting their carry on and being ready to go. They should forfeit their turn and go to the end of the line. No reason for such stupidity.

    This is something that annoys the hell out of me too. Every single day I see people sitting in idling vehicles for no reason. It's not hot, it's not cold, they're not warming the engine up, defrosting the windows, etc. They're just fucking idiots.

    They'll still GTFO of the way if you communicate. Done it. Once towards the front of the plane to make connection, the other time towards the back of the plane so my son could have a shit. Poor fella was groundhoggin' the entire landing but he made it. As you'd expect, the latter produced better results from the masses. "Excuse me - need to take a shit!" worked wonders. Maybe try that next time you got a tight connection?

    Some crews still do this. At least on Delta when I witnessed that recently. The whole plane politely complied and allowed those people with tight connections to head to the front and be ready to bolt as soon as the door was opened. Solid flight attendants! Also cool was how we were delayed a bit in departing, so the pilots straight put the pedal to the metal to make up for lost time and we ended up on time. United's too cheap to splurge on the extra fuel burned, so those jerks are ALWAYS late. Haha.

    I would think "Need to throw up" might work even better.
    BTW, why do people who get to preboard because they need extra time to board get to deplane with everyone else? If you want to preboard you should be required to sit in the back and leave after everyone else is off.
