Yeah, it was nice here all day. I was sitting outside reading for a while. It was nice, birds singing, neighbors doing their thing. Peaceful suburban afternoon. Then my old lady comes outside and sits in the swing with me and never shuts up! Yammering on and on about inane stuff! It reminded me of the George Thorogood song You Talk Too Much! <sigh> I played that in my head while she kept going ... ;-)

Why do they put the envelope with the cheese powder in the Kraft Dinner boxes upside down? That makes all the cheese pack together at the end where you have to open it. :mad:

My pet peeve of the day is the fact people are not adhering to the guidelines and running around without masks. Now our state may be reverting back to the red phase soon which means all non essential business will close and we are all going to be quarantined again. Thanks for ruining my summer Covid-19!! Not only did you ruin my summer but my chances of ever obtaining employment in my field of expertise!!:mad:

Why don't skunks realize the Havaheart traps I set out are for the groundhogs?

This could get ugly.

Well, the critter was released with out the typical confrontation.....

I used a large drop cloth to approach the cage, cover it and carry it over to a creek on the edge of my property.

He scampered away with out incident.

But the cage needs to be 'aired out' a bit and the drop cloth, well......never to be used again. lol!

Guess I'd better stock up on drop cloths, that was my last one.

Sorry to hear that.
Ohio is backsliding also.

How about starting a computer tech/info blog and see where that goes?

Yep....same thing here in my state. Me and the wife had predictions about this, well mainly me. And guess what....here we are with my predictions coming to the forefront. It all started with that POS Gov. in NY whining about opening up and then Florida Gov then the California Gov......all doing the same whining. Now you see them back pedaling and forcing business closings again.

Then you have the health experts saying if you don't stick to the original plan and open up early the infection rate will be 10 times worse. And here we are....rates have tripled in the last 2 weeks alone and it wont be long before another forced complete shut down is implemented. It's coming.

Now our Gov has granted schools to open with plan B and C options. I haven't heard what plan A is but B is half students rotated in during the week and half online learning and C is full online. Fn stupid, why put our children at risk in the first place.

The original fed gov plan was to wait it out fully then gradually let the country go back to normal and the wait time would be 3 to 6 months. Now since all the early openings and infections rate has hit new highs across the board. The projected wait time for a full lock down is now 6 - 9 months, give or take a month.

Just a reminder that this thread is for pet-peeves. Covid-19 hardly fits that discription and there are two other threads available for discussing how it's affecting you, one in Random for lighter discussions and one in Controversial Topics where you can argue about it. :)

I was just offered a job at Handshake career service educating students about cybersecurity and that's my field of expertise. However, I reside at a distance and it would have to be online only.

People who ask - "can I ask you something?"
If it's not personal or offensive, why not?
That query should be qualified by the situation.
Folks have asked me that in a grocery store, and I'd say "Sure..." but it's followed by a clarification, like "Do you where's the Ricotta?"
Or what's the diff between Salsa and Picante?
What if you need directions?
What if you were on "Cash Cab" or "Who want to be a Millionaire?"
Need a Final Jeopardy answer to win a bet....

Didn't Andy Rooney make his trademark on 60 Minutes (and the butt of many jokes) by asking that....

Not arguing, and @Blu_86 there's a reason that bothers you, and understand, no offense was meant, it's just I (and maybe 'we'?) don't know the context you refer to.
