I can relate 100%. I know exactly what you mean.

Not sure, but I don't have the resources or authority to do that, anyway. It would have to be near the door, probably over the hand dryers, but in any case, it would open up a nasty can of legal worms regarding privacy if any of our customers realized it was there. There are reasons that public restrooms do not have such hidden cameras- it tends to weird people out. Especially when used in a women's room.....

An ex I haven't talked to in years finds my Twitter, follows, asks if we can reconnect, I reluctantly say sure & ask how she is, & she never responds. Been 2 weeks, nothing. & it's not like she's not around either. Pisses me off. Like, you came around & made me give a sh*t, then you blow me off? Dafucizat? Bitch. All you did was remind me why we don't talk. Unfollowed.

The fact that it's taking so long for my Anatometal order of new earrings to show up (first-world problems, I know, right). But the Anatometal factory has had problems with their machines, has had to reorder them and the replacement machines were duds as well, end result being that my order from midway through July likely isn't going to show up until the end of October.

For someone who sucks at waiting, that's total torture. I want my new titanium barbells, goshdangit! *sulks*

Not having access to wifi! Seriously, in this day and age ALL places should have it, or at least places where people must stay for a while like hotels and hospitals!

Oh and adding, not being able to watch the next turtles ep because of this cell data cap crap.

I agree, you'd think just about every place would have wifi. To quote Don and Raph from the OT... It's mind boggling, it's baffling, its... Incredibly stupid!

I agree about Wi-Fi. It sucks that I can't get it out here in the country and that's so stupid.

What else grinds my gears: That CBS changed The Amazing Race from airing on Sundays to Fridays and that it premieres the same night of the TMNT season finale. That's just so stupid. Why can't they just keep it on Sundays as they always do? I have a feeling this is a bad move and that it'll cost them ratings for sure.

Also a certain troll who's been posting on the forums lately. Something needs to be done about that.

I'd love to start back at the gym but I can't seem to motivate myself to do it. I was going to the gym every week for a few months and was starting to feel better then all of a sudden I just lost interest in it and stopped going. Have to meet a Community Psychiatric Nurse in the town tomorrow, she said it's to get me out of the house to try and help my Agoraphobia. I'm dreading having to travel on a bus. Hate being stuck on a bus full of people.

I know what you mean, I battled with this for years. I've been much better in recent years with "tricking" myself into getting on with things, etc. I have to outsmart myself with stuff like that...

You would think after the first time they'd wise up and stop cutting the line..... Nope!

A friend/bandmate/business partner has ignored my calls for 2 weeks now, yet he's posting crap all over Facebook like it ain't no thing. I'm gonna slap this dude.

All these folks hacking into store computers grind my gears lately. I don't shop at Home Depot, but my future father-in-law's credit card was compromised due to some big security breach that took place recently. I heard it was bigger than the Target business last Holiday season. It's just a matter of time before they get caught. How stupid can they be? I know things are tough for a lot of folks, but stealing cash from others has some seriously awful end results.

Ah, yes. My dad works at Home Depot and when he found out about that through the news, it was the first time anybody had told him anything. Neither his boss or the higher-ups said ANYTHING to the employees about it. Fun, huh?

lol Yeah, loads! Not telling the employees? I hadn't heard of that yet. Now there's a new wrinkle. You'd think the higher ups could get in very hot water for that.

My depression. So because of my depression issues, and my apathetic approach most anything offline whenever I got into a depressed mode for no reason, has caught up with me.

I received letters but ignored them and had the bad habit if not checking my mail because I wouldn't care. My mood would go down and I'd become forgetful as well. Anyway, today some mail was brought to me here in the hospital. So I'll have this hospital bill, not too much, but I also owe the city money. I thought it was an automatic thing. The tax and the Japanese pension (which sucks because even if I were a perm resident, I wouldn't be allowed to collect this). Altogether, I owe about $2600.

The main gear grind...my irresponsibility and having to ask my parents for help.

Often gravity. I made a lovely pizza yesterday. It had pepperoni, mushrooms and hot dogs on. I put it on my plate, put the plate down. The plate then fell of the desk and smashed. This meant all of my pizza fell on the floor.

Really annoys me sometimes.

Oh, I hear you about the hackers. I'm totally sick of all of that. No one is safe anymore, and it's just horrible how people can be so heartless to steal someone's identity. That happened with my mom's credit card and there was a breach at the hospital where my mom went to get treatment, so she was compromised there, too.

I heard Ebay also got hacked too. So if you buy anything there, you might want to keep an eye on your bank accounts.

Definitely, MW. I haven't bought anything from Ebay in a while but recently closed out my account there just to be safe.

Aw man, sorry about those bills ssjup. My mom is still paying some for Kemo treatments which took place around a year and a half ago. She beat cancer, but that disease really grinds my gears. So do bills of all kinds. They suck.

Headbands, I hear ya about gravity. That happened to my better half recently. It involved Chinese food. The cat was successful in tripping her up that time and she was very bummed. I don't usually do Chinese so I was about to heat up something for myself when her food was lost. Then I was like,"Aw screw it. You want me to treat you to pizza?" Pizza is pretty much the instant cure to being bummed unless that falls to the floor or the cat runs off with some. Then it's Armageddon.

We don't have Ebay accounts, so we're good on that front.
