    What really grinds your gears?

    You know, those petty little things that happen day-to-day to irritate you. Jerry Seinfeld is a whiz at making them funny.

    What are some of yours?

    Please, as always, remember our Pit Guidelines- NO politics, religion, or personal attacks. Keep it fun!

    I'll start-

    When every drawer you open in the kitchen has five twist ties in it at any given time. But when you're actually looking for a twist tie there are none to be found anywhere.

        When I need a specific screw driver. NEVER around.

        A child that will leave a room and leave the light on, yet sit in a room in almost TOTAL darkness and do homework.

        Techy things like an ICelsius that won't link up.....OK, that one is current.

        Lol, that just happened to me this morning. I need a Phillips, look in all the drawers, I find FOUR flat heads, no Phillips. No joke, this is why I actually LOLed when I read this.

          Yeah it must be something about Phillips... when I don't need them, I have 4 or 5 laying around. But otherwise they vanish.

            Oh, YES! I've taken to hiding some tools so BF can't find them - he takes them and then leaves them where he used them. I have to think of what he may have been doing last to find them. Like the time the kitchen scissors were in the charcoal bin.

          I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings guys but, it is only going to get worse as you get more senior. Some days I just have to be happy that I know my name, where I am at, and what I am suppose to be doing. It is pure He%% when you are at the mall,etc and you can't remember where you parked your car. I mean we see jokes about it all the time but in reality it is real. Just enjoy life's journey and all that little S*!! will take care of its self.

          Oh, and back on the subject I just hate it when I put something down at a spot so I will remember where I left it and can't remember the spot. Oh Yea, talk about being irritated, it is like throwing gasoline on a fire, it just makes remembering worse

            Yep, put stuff in a very safe place so I'll know where it is when I need it; then, when I need it who knows where that safe place is.

          Heck, I'm not a senior yet (although I did become eligible for AARP last year), and I can never remember where I parked my friggin' car

            Denial... Is the first sign of being old. If you got your AARP card last year and say you're not a senior you might have a case of Sometimer's. That the first step of Alzheimer's.😎

            Yeh, and those who enter the freeway at 40MPH. Probably the same ones who slow down on the freeway to 40MPH way before the exit.

            I live in Florida, the turn signal optional state. A quarter of our drivers were riding in oxcarts a few years ago and half are retirees that "drive slow and sit low".

          A coworker with maybe 5 years of experience telling me the "correct" way of doing things when reviewing my code (keep in mind I have about 30yrs experience programming.) What's sad is that I have to explain to him and the rest of the team (and the whole department at times) what the modern way of doing things is.

          I don't mind being questioned about why I do things, but don't tell me I'm wrong just because you've never done it that way before.

          Even worse, my manager had to Google what I meant when I told that coworker to stop trying to teach me how to suck eggs.
