The whole concept of "life hacks".

"You're eating cheese wrong!"

"You're slicing cake wrong!"

"You're folding clothes wrong!"

Just shut up.   I hate the internet sometimes.
I love you, hecma.  :-*

Yes, my mom's way is apparently the one way by her own declaration. I am going to guess it is going to be the same with my wife. My way looks neat and everything, but apparently it is wrong.

I find it quite useful to intentionally do things incorrectly.  After folding about 3 shirts the wrong way, my wife gets visibly annoyed and yells "Just let me do it". She then mumbled under her breath about her incompetent husband as I wander off to chat on oc.net.  ;D

Ah yes . . . feigning incompetence.  My husband would do that too.  I'd get, "But you do it so much better than I do."  Clever you menfolk . . . very clever!  :)

People stating the obvious.  Walked into a Bible study once holding a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee (the cup had their logo on it) and the guy next to me asked me, "Is that Dunkin Donuts coffee?"

I find it most effective to volunteer and then just do it terribly. If I protest and say she can do it better, then she knows that I'm trying to get out of it.  It is all about psychological warfare.  :laugh:

It's a legitimate question.  I walk around with Dunkin' Donuts coffee cups just filled to the brim with bourbon.

It's also important to do it very slowly.

Exactly my point.  The weird thing was when I was in high school, I was infatuated with southern culture. I dreamed about moving to the deep South. I wore confederate kepis around which brought many odd looks from my Pennsylvania neighbors. Now, they all just annoy me.  I handle insurance litigation and I've noticed that people down south seem to be much more willing to try to get insurance money for "injuries" that don't actually exist. There seems to be a degree of laziness and mooching that is less apparent in the North outside of cesspools like Chicago, Philadelphia, the Bronx and the entire state of West Virginia.  Thus endeth my stereotypical rant on Southerners.

It isn't my only contact, but it sure is a pretty high amount of it.  Perhaps it has soured my view of the region. It gets to the point that I hear that Southern accent on the phone and I just want to reach through the phone and give them a good strong Yankee slap.  :laugh:

I field a lot of calls from people that should just not have access to the phone or internet.  A slap from their momma would suffice.

If we were ever to get a beer IRL, I will be sure to talk as loudly and as hickly as possible so I can see what gnashing of teeth looks like.

Which side to you defend? I myself would rather defend the guy suing the insurance company, but I do get annoyed at those commercials aimed at the low class for ridiculous lawsuits. They always come on the TV channels most likely to be watched by the working class or welfare class. And I am not trying to knock either class, but they are more likely to want to sue over civil grievances that do not exist. I'm thinking of law school but there are two areas I do not want to put myself in--tax law or being a TV injury lawyer. I'd rather be a public defender for thugs who rob grandmothers.

We represent emergency responders like fire departments and ambulance companies who get sued for everything from people not happy that the fire department didn't show up while they were still on the phone with 911 reporting the fire to complaints that the ambulance crew that saved their life drove over their lawn and caused ruts.

And yes, those are two real claims.  People are stupid.

-People who compare taking care of their dogs to taking care of a child and the whole urban hipster pet culture itself. There's nothing cute about your little hairball climbing all over the couches and licking me against my will.

-Barbers who keep talking.

-Overweight people who, because they are upset over their fatness, have to convince themselves that they are healthier by eating organic foods and shopping at these overpriced hipster health nut stores like Whole Foods and Sunflower Market or whatever. They often boast to other people about how they eat only organic food or how we should use the healthy vitamin enriched rice or carb free thing or whatever. Hey, guess what? I don't care. Apparently it isn't doing you much good if you're still overweight. And how'd you like it if I came over to your house for dinner and starting telling you how to exercise to lose weight?

"You're slicing cake wrong!"

"You're folding clothes wrong!"

Just shut up.   I hate the internet sometimes.
Seriously!  I read an article yesterday about "awesome life hacks" which included basic instructions on how to clean a tile floor.  Since when did basic cleanliness become a "life hack"? What was the non-hack option? To leave all the grime build up on the floor until Health and Human Services show up to condemn your property?

My pet peeve is not finding a normal barber shop.  I don't need a salon, I don't need a lot of TVs playing crap on ESPN, and I don't need extra perks while I wait.  I just want an old place that smells of hair tonic and Pinaud Clubman; a place that doesn't even have a vacuum cleaner - barbers just sweep; and a place where everyone waits to get their hair cut by the oldest barber there, the one that still uses straight razors and gives perfect haircuts...all while talking.

Really JamesR, all you have to say is "Mhmmm," a few times.  Maybe throw in a "Geez," or "I don't believe it," once in a while.  He'll do the rest.  It's better than TV.  Old barbershops are the place to be to learn a thing or two about a local community.

I saw something on Facebook...it was "Mind-blowing lifehacks" related to eating an apple or something.  I didn't bother clicking on it.

You're so right. It's not worth living in a town without a decent barbershop.

I once was going to attend a wedding and needed a haircut.  I drove an hour and a half to a barbershop I knew would give me a good haircut.  It was worth it.  Even with the drive (gas/time) it still was a better deal.

I have cut my own hair for the last 12 years or so and before that, I had friends do it.  I wouldn't even know what to do at a barbershop.  Why would they need straight razors?
God bless!

Yeah I lived in your area for a few years. Worst hairdos outside Canada. Tried every barbershop in two counties. Gosh was I glad to move.

Women barbers...or whatever you are supposed to call them in what is supposed to be a BARBER SHOP. All women working there and no men. If I want women I will go to a salon and then I want the woman over the gay guy. But since all I want is a nice Roman cut, I can go to a barber. I look horrible with a beard or long hair. Some guys can pull it off but I am more antique Roman than Dane. I am glad I do not have to enter the clergy. The women do a good job since it is a simple cut but it's just that I like the old barber shops, too. But if JamesR is getting his cut by women I can understand he might want them to shut up. It's really nothing against women. I just don't want them cutting my hair. I've got a maxim:

"Men up top, women down below."

I'm hoping your motto sounds better in Danish.

So are we.
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

...if you feel Mor really is in spiritual danger, pray the Jesus prayer for him.   :police:

That's Google translator with me changing the English a little to best transliterate to Latin. Not saying it's very great Latin. I've been putting off learning it for years.

Why? Because it is vulgar? How about the Latin? Check this out:

Someone listening to their electronic device too loud, from television to cell phone to IPad or whatever. Like my dad. Has the TV up way too loud and refuses to turn down his cell phone when he is listening to videos and I am watching TV or something. If I am with others I make sure I either have headphones on or turn it down. He refuses to turn it down or use headphones. It is embarassing in public as I feel it is rude. McDonalds has free internet but it does not mean you should listen to the video someone sent you at full blast. People do not want to hear what you are listening, too. I can't seem to get him to understand simple manners. He says it's their problem or he doesn't care about them.
