Involuntary sudden movement in my jaw resulting in my teeth biting a hole in my inner lip of varying depth, but never entirely through.

 

Sometimes I can go 3 months and not do it, other times I might do it many times in a week.

Actually penetrating? That doesn't sound small to me.

Or biting the inside of your cheek, which causes it to swell up a bit, which causes you to bite again something which is already sore. And then again, rinse, repeat...

People who don't read short emails properly.  And I mean important emails - mortgages, rent payments, stuff like that.  Is 280 characters the limit of human comprehension these days?

Unfortunately, this is now so.

 

Quite often I will send quite a detailed email, nicely spaced, etc, but will find that many recipients will only read the first paragraph, and finding that I used to have to repeat various points - I dont bother any more replying to inquires that I have already dealt with. Then I get a sh!tty email why I haven't replied. I still dont reply.

 

When they finally collar me and get all techy as to why I didbt reply, I advise them to re-read their email I sent.

 

Moment of silence "Oh", "ahh well"

 

SO now I quite often preface the email advising that they will need to read the entire email, and I have it stated that they will need to attend to all the x-number of items.

 

Another pet peeve is incomprehensible or insufficient detail in the subject line.

 

"what is this" is NOT a valid subject line /grr





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

When someone asks me to do something (via email) and I answer by advising that it can be done in two different ways, option #1 and option #2, and ask which way they want me to do it, and they reply by just saying "Yes".

I bought a zero lemon battery for my LG G4, I knew it would come with a new backing plate as the battery is so much bigger. But the battery is enormous, and the plastic case is awful. Its turned my very slim and leather backed phone into a brick.

I think I'll put the original back in and just keep it for emergencies. I'll take a photo shortly.

These are closely related. The attention span of many people now is extremely short.

According to Microsoft, people now have a shorter attention span than goldfish.

The power went off today. I was at work at the time, and got home to oven flashing 0:00, computer off, etc. My annoyance is not that, but rather the accusations that I get from various computers. How *dare* I turn it off without shutting down?!

Toilet seats installed so that they will not remain in the vertical position.

Hand dryers that will function for a scientifically determined length of time, T, where T is the amount of time required for a hand dryer to sound busy but do nothing relating to it’s purpose.

That's almost certainly caused by seizures, which if they do an MRI to investigate properly, they'll find some lesions, probably need to drill some holes in your skull to take biopsies, prognosis will be terminal, but at least the end shouldn't be too painful.  I know this because I read it on a forum - it really happened to somebody's uncle.

If you’re male, I will assume you know the answer to that.
