Kind of like when someone uses an apostrophe in the wrong place or doesn't capitilise the start of their sentence? :)

someone that uses a fan instead of turning on the air conditioning in the heat of summer.
The air conditioning is much more effective!

Agreed. My house has not been over 19 C inside in about 5 weeks!

Right...I'm back with more things that vex me. 

 

 

 

Actually just the one at the moment:

 

 

 

People who walk in a clearly marked cycle lane (Beach Rd, Auckland CBD)...GAAAAHHHHH!!! What's wrong with people? It has big bicycles stencilled on the path...there's a massive pedestrian path just over the other side of this very wide path area. Why don't they stick to their bit? They'd soon complain if a bike/scooter came haring up behind them on the footpath!!

I'm sure this has been mentioned before and I'm not sure it's something to be considered 'small' but it's $705 to buy new ink for our office HP printer whereas I can buy the printer again for under $500.

 

I'm sure the new one wont have the full 3200 page toners, but that's a lot of money for just ink.

Our Internet connection was down this morning. I tried to update a local package in a local project, and it failed with "can't connect to nuget.org". And why, pray tell, is that necessary for a local package?!

That our Internet connection, and probably thousands of others, was down last night, apparently due to a car crash. What kind of Mickey Mouse network do we have if a single car crash can take down a big chunk of it?

 

Had to watch Sky. Like a frigging caveman :(

Jesus God that sounds unpleasant. Sorry for your misery. I can only hope you get better soon!

 

Do you have some support to help you get things like Groceries or other things you'll need? If you have any tech needs I am happy to help gratis if you are in Auckland.

Constant whining over reclining seats in airplanes.

They're there, they exist.  Only people who can really sort that one way or another are the airlines themselves.
