At least I didn't have a time I had to be home by but I was getting concerned about the car overheating because it's 7 years old now so I kept an eye on the temperature gauge but it was fine.
With some cars stuck in traffic, sometimes turning if off means... Will it Start Again?;)
Been there, done that with an 11 year od car(n)

I thought about that too. I had an old Oldsmobile 442 a long time ago and it started to overheat when I was stuck in traffic and I had to turn the heat on (that's what they say to do). It helped but it was brutal. :)

work related; I work for a Fortune 1k company (trying for Fortune 500 but still around 800 or so) and just rolled out the new HP G7's and 8's. Our main accounting office is in New Orleans, and as you all know they got whacked last weekend. Office lost power for several days came on today with the usual hiccoughs. Wifi is down and the Windows team cannot remote in to fix it due to spotty outages. Ethernet works fine.

My peeve is this; the new G7's and up DON'T HAVE ETHERNET PORTS!!!. It's wifi or nothing.

Who the heck at HP thought that was a good idea??? It's like the Little Dutch Boy who tries to plug the holes in the dyke but runs out of fingers.....

Job security I guess.

Funny thing with light bulbs how it's always dark when it happens too. :D It think it's just to mess with us. :D

Yeah, it's like your car's battery always seems to fail when you go to start it ... ;-)

Update on my new microwave oven.
Bought it at Walmart.
No problems. :)

I do read the manuals that come with these wizardly utensils lol.
And this is what I found on the manual's cover:

The last two lines in small print.
WalMart owns a license to sell microwave ovens trademarked as Hamilton Beach products.
On the oven, it's labeled WalMart. Made in China.
On the box, it's labeled "Hamilton Beach".

Relabeled stuffs from China. lol.
Guess that makes Hamilton Beach microwave ovens the store brand ( like generic? ) :eek:

But...it's all nice and shinny and seems to work well.

So it's a Wal-Beach microwave! :D

I've been ordering from Wal-Mart online and the service is great. I ordered stuff on Tuesday and it arrived today.

Funny thing though, last time I placed two separate orders and both amounts were confirmed and the charges matched on my Visa card. But, there was a third charge from Wal-Mart for $0.01. Yup, one cent. Go figure. It probably cost them more than $0.01 to process that. :rolleyes:

I hate it when you're wrapping a parcel and you lose the end of that transparent packaging tape! :D Then when you do find it and scrape to get it going again it splits and half is left behind. :D

I hate it when I get a phonecall and a recording asks me to "hold for an important call". What!?!? You're calling me and putting me on hold? I can understand if I call someone and they put me on hold, but not when you're calling me! That don't fly!

Last time it happened, I actually waited, rather than hanging up like I usually do. I wanted to wait for a live person and either let into them, or ask them to hold while I find someone who cares. Unfortunately, after being asked several times to hold for a very important call, the message changed to we're sorry, we're unable to complete your call. AAARRRGGGHHH!!! Now I know how Charlie Brown feels when Lucy pulls away the football!

I'm walking through Kroger to the pharmacy, to get my flu and tetanus shots.
I have my mask on.
As I approach a short line, a customer in line pulls down his mask to cough.

It's better to have coughed while masked than never coughed at all...
Oh, wait that's not right :unsure: :giggle:

Sometimes it's tough communicating through a mask and plexiglass shields....
