RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
What is it with old people answering phone numbers that they don't fucking know? I grew up in the age where not everyone had Caller ID (including my family) so yeah used to you just had to answer and hope it wasn't anyone that you didn't want to talk to. But nowadays, damn near everybody has Caller ID so if you do not recognize the number, DO NOT FUCKING ANSWER IT, DUMB-SHIT!!! They can leave a fucking voicemail if it's important and half the time it's a fucking 800-number trying to run a goddamn scam on you or some shit. Jesus christ. Dodgy

It's much more fun to waste scammers' time and money than to ignore Big Grin

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Fucking people at Wal-Mart don't know what side of the free-aisles to walk on. So the major thoroughfare throughout Wal-mart is usually divided by pallets in which there is a left lane and a right lane. You would think that domestic traffic laws would help dictate what side people push their carts down but hell no, that would make too much sense. I swear every time I stay on the right side and encounter head-on shopper traffic, I feel like tipping my hat and saying "alloe gubnuh! Cheerio!" Censored Weeping

The drop in value of the Canadian dollar is making my frequent trips to the US more expensive. On the upside, my military pay from the US is worth more in Canada.

That's funny, my husband freaks out when I don't answer numbers I don't know. *phone rings, I look at it, silence the call* husband: who was that? Me: I have no idea. Husband: ARENT YOU GOING TO ANSWER IT TO FIND OUT?!??!?!? Me: no! Tongue

For all the same reasons you listed. 1 I don't like talking on the phone. 2 90% of the people I would talk to are saved as contacts in my phone. 3 if someone really needed to talk to me, they can leave a message, I can call right back.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

Or send a freaking text. We live in the 21st century. There are so many better forms of communication available.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Drape sopping wet rags or paper towels on the bug debris field and let sit a minute or so. Remove the rags/paper towels by wiping the bug debris clear with them. Lemon Pledge gets 'em off too but the water by itself is just as effective if left to soak.

This brings up the old saw about that last thing that goes through a bug's mind when it hits ---
