    AC was out when I got home this morning. Told the maintenance guy I was headed to the golf course, so he was more than welcome to take his time. Just got back home and there was a window unit set up in my living room. Which wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that its over 50 feet and one small hallway from my bedroom. Literally the opposite end of my apartment. Couple that with my living room having a two story ceiling and thin windows. Looks like I'm sleeping on my leather couch tonight.
    Ugh, that sucks, especially with the Texas heat.  Question though, why didn't he just fix your existing AC?

    @Michelle I don't know. No follow up phone call or any note letting me know what the situation is. I called and left a message, but no call back. I assume that the maintenance guy couldn't fix it, and the propety manager didn't want to pay the weekend rates for their AC contractor. When I left a little while ago the thermostat on the window unit read 1 degree hotter than when I got home. Ha ha.

    People who drive exactly the speed limit *and not a mile faster* in the left lane on a 2-lane highway (4 lanes, 2 lanes going each direction), with a line of cars behind them who can't change lanes to pass because there are slow cars in the right lane as well.  Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    This 100% @Michelle ; I'd like to add one that drives me nuts relating to driving. When people that are in the left hand turn lane that don't go out into the middle of the intersection to wait for cars to pass through.  Had one the other day that stayed behind the crosswalk on a green light and as the last car drove by from the opposite direction the light changed to yellow and they stayed stopped.  Glad I wasn't in any kind of rush but the guy in front of me (directly behind explained car) I would guess was in a rush was throwing up his hands and I could hear the profanities being said from my vehicle.

    One of the MANY reasons that I don’t go right outside of the Dallas area unless it’s for work. Head in any direction far enough from downtown and you’ll run into so many of these.

    I did not know about "Rolling Coal" until watching Everyday Astronaut talk about driving back from watching Starhopper's 1st flight in Boca Chica.

    He drives a Tesla and there is a group of people,  a large number who seem to live in Texas, tune their diesel pickup's to spew giant exhaust clouds. He said it happened like 20 times in Texas, someone would see his Tesla, pull on front of him, Roll Coal and leave him in a giant cloud.

    Take that 'letric car pussy!

  • Websites that force you to download their app to use their site. Quora I’m looking at you...
  • Misread text from dentist about cleaning appointment two weeks ago and found out my appointment is next week. Who sends a reminder text three weeks ahead?

    Then go to pharmacy to find out that the request I sent to doctor's office online gateway to make sure they updated prescription to reflect new orders by the doctor were met with just resending the old prescription.

    My younger days an hour like that would have been an excuse to go drink at a bar the rest of the day. Instead I'm at home typing this. Look at me semi-adulting.

    Today in the office my earbuds are broken so I am forced to listen to the woman opposite me who keeps up a continuous voiceover narration of everything she is doing or looking at on her screen all day, the woman two desks down who spends hours a day waylaying anyone who is dumb enough to stop so she can bitch about how productivity is measured, and the woman two desks in the other direction who sings all day like she’s auditioning for X Factor.
