    How in some threads that were read but have new messages, it doesn't take you to the first unread post when reentering the thread. But only in some threads.

    And how my check tire pressure ding wouldn't stfu this morning.

    Sending a private message to someone on mfp and having to verify by checking "hills and mountains" (which I apparently did wrong), then "traffic lights" (which I noticed just as I clicked 'Send' had a couple random boxes also checked - so wrong again) and then finally "images of taxis". This time I made my selections more carefully and noticed boxes I hadn't checked were checking themselves! I unchecked 2 boxes, then finally could send my message. Sheesh mfp, I'm perfectly capable of messing things up myself - I don't need your assistance in that area!

    I'm having issues as well. Except when I click send message, it doesn't do anything at all. I finally have to copy/paste then compose new message. Then I'm not sure it's gone through because I never get that captcha thingie; only way I *think* it went through was because it's in my sent box.
    And that only started happening the past couple days, annoying!!

    Planned on putting air in my tires (again ) last night but fell asleep so got up early this morning to do it and, if I could get the tire pressure warning to shut up, put another 25 miles on my car for the smog test.

    Success on the tire pressure warning so got me a diet coke and hit the freeway in the fog.

    I wanted to be home by a certain time but ended off on a different freeway on my way home and didn't realize it until quite a few miles later.

    So now I'm off schedule.

    (I used to be more laid back!)

    I hate it when my nose gets itchy.. but it's the inside, so obviously if I scratch it it's gonna look like I'm picking my nose.

    Ok god, ok I'm not a dog lover. I've always been scared of them and just plain don't like the jumping and biting and coming near me.

    I live in a no dogs/no exceptions apt building but someone didn't get the literal memo that NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED NO MATTER WHAT.

    That's not what this is about.

    This is about my neighbor in my work complex decided to start bringing her dog (not sure if it's our client or the girl who works for her) and it won't shut up. And I can't exactly complain to the property manager because he brings HIS dog pretty much every time he's here now.

    Definitely annoyed me when he walked in with his big dog this one time...

    And, in a very weird, tmi kinda irk, I have dental problems. I'm getting implants but I haven't been healing well on the upper half so I'd been wearing these dentures that didn't fit because of a gag reflex. The glue came off easily so I went without it a lot.

    Anyway, I used to do a lot of sucking on crackers or m&ms or whatever until they melted in my mouth and I could swallow them because of the lack of being able to chew. My dentist fixed the upper denture so it fits better and now it's REALLY hard to come off and I'm able to kinda chew again and eating takes me like a quarter of the time because I'm not letting things melt in my mouth so...I'm probably eating more. :)

    When people soak themselves in perfume or cologne before going somewhere where you will be in close contact with other people...theaters, restaurants, etc.

    When these events were restricted for so long, I almost forgot how bad this can be.

    In restaurants, I have asked to change tables due to intense scents from nearby diners. It has ruined some theatre experiences for me...eyes watering, throat burning.

    Wearing a mask actually helps a bit, so there's an added benefit to COVID protocols. Doesn't help in restaurants though, where you'd like to taste your food instead of the Axe body spray next door.

    I automatically get suspicious when someone wears that much cologne or perfume. Like, what are they trying to hide under that odoriferous cloud?

    Television ad for autos with hands free driving.
    Really?
    All that technology so that we can clap along to music while driving?
    So stupid. 🤯

    I have a general contractor lined up to do some work on the staircase in my home. He and his crew got "hit pretty hard" by COVID and "lost about 2 weeks". Now the work isn't likely to get done before Christmas.

    I'm irked. Should I be?
    Is this just life in the era of COVID, or... ?

    That's frustrating. Maybe a silver lining will turn out to be that now that they've recovered, they won't need to pause after starting and leave your place in disarray because people are out sick.
