    With a 3 and a 5-year-old I am usually relieved that it is Monday.

    Well, it used to be that ANYONE running fog lights when there was no fog (coming towards me) would greatly annoy me. Now that the average low beam headlight is WAY brighter than the fog lights used to be, it doesn't seen to annoy me anymore.
    Rednecks not turning off their light bars in time, however...

    Last month a UPS driver got his truck stuck on my driveway.

    He caused a little bit of damage to an area that was was already very slightly damaged but would now require me to put down some crushed rock and do a small asphalt repair. It was annoying.

    After a bit of phone tag and kvetching, finally they sent a loss adjuster out to inspect it. Nice guy we chatted it up about skiing and traffic and mutual hatred of uber drivers. He took his measurements and some photos went on his way.

    This morning the dude from their "resolutions agency" offered me $11K. Which is about ten times what I wouldn't have argued about.

    The whole driveway only cost me about $6K to pave when we did it seven years ago.

    Not annoyed.

    We had an Amazon white van driver get stuck earlier in the year and they arranged for a contractor to come out and fix it.

    At this rate if I invest the $11k in purchases from Amazon the income I receive in damages from their deliveries means I could retire.

    People driving slow in the left lanes. Now so many people do it, the right lanes have become de facto passing lanes. Winning.
