Have you ever had something that you wanted to tell someone, but didn't want to make a whole thread for it? I think that we should have a thread dedicated to little random things that pop into our heads or for the little occurrences that happen throughout the day.

So is it just me, or does it drive anyone else crazy when the commercials are louder than the show you're watching? Especially when you're trying to sleep. It always seems to be a Cox or Mor commercial that comes BOOMING into my happy little TV land. :mad:

I absolutely hate that too.

You know what else I hate? The fact that bad things always seem to happen to good dog owners. One person's bitch may whelp a 2 pup litter needing a c-section, while there are tons of backyard breeders letting their dogs do whatever while they whelp and nothing ever happens to them. I could go on and on.

i hate customers who come through my drive thru and take 10 minutes to order their food while people are piling up behind them and then get mad at me for asking them if they can hold a minute because i have other customers i have to manage as well. The drive thru is supposed to be faster than inside. If you're going to take 10 minutes to decide what you want and another 10 minutes to order, PLEASE go inside and stand off to the side until you know what you want. So annoying.

i also hate commercials that are louder than the show i'm watching. OH! and those commercials for something thats supposed to be handy like that reusable soak up everything towel. I HATE those obnoxious loud reps that practically yell at the camera like Billy Blake did before he died. Yelling at me doesnt make me want to buy the product! It makes me want to smack you!

The other day when I was driving my car with my friend I looked over at him and said "I cant believe how smart the person that decided to make a car was."

Sometimes I just cant believe how smart people are.

You know what I can't believe? That anyone was ever smart enough to figure out knitting and crocheting.

yeah i could never understand that one. I think my sister in law is crazy because she knit. i used to kinda know how to crochet but never my thing.

One of the things i'm surprised about is the balancer system in SUVs that help balance the vehicle even if you take a turn sharper than you should. Totally awesome. Love newer vehicle. Dont love the price tag to get a newer (even a used one!) though.

I failed sewing class in High School. It was too hard for me, but I passed Wood Shop Class with an "A" :shrug:
I only passed wood shop class because the teacher thought I was cute and I pouted a few times to get that A! He even finished my project for me because I pouted about being afraid of the machine! LOL!

BAHAHAHA!!!!! nice. sounds like me in auto. I did all the written work but my "team" would never let me actually do mechical work because they didnt want me to get dirty lol. and the teacher thought i was afraid of the engines. not so much since i grew up with my grandpa who was a mechanic and spent MANY hours in the garage with him but whatever. Got an A in the class for doing next to nothing. Pretty nifty stuff.

LaRen, a lot of high schools don't even offer HomeEc classes anymore. The school district where our youngest attended high school didn't.

Krystal, I love to knit, crochet and (LaRen, can you believe this?) sew!

It boggles my mind that people just decided to throw chocolate chips or other ingredients into dough and make sweets or cookies. Who ever decided that chocolate chips were a good ingredient to put into baked goods? (That person was a genius.) :D

I get frustrated. I can sew but only if i HAVE to or want to decorate a bag or something. My grandma crochets... a lot. I've had to ask her to STOP sending us afghans lol and other stuff. and i'm afraid i'd probably stab someone (probably myself) with the knitting needles and then i'd probably end up throwing the knitting needles as i freaked out about stabbing myself lol. i need a vacation. too tense hehe.

Salem.... i TOTALLY agree with you on that whole genius thing. They were totally amazing to think of that!

I love to crochet and sell some of my work too. My sister is pregnant with her first baby, so I have a lot of crocheting to do! Here's one of my creations on my granddaughter. I was particularly pleased with the way it came out.

Thanks Paula! It all makes sense now. I never bothered to look it up because I assumed that it was one of those things that someone started and so many people followed suit that it was hard to tell where it came from.

I know! I could never do anything like that. The last time I baked chocolate chip cookies, I used wax paper by accident. :blush:
Needless to say, I am not allowed to bake unless supervised. :p
