    The North Carolina state legislature that spends billions upon billions turning two lane roads into four lane divided highways (and four lane highways into six lane highways, and building outer loops for suburbanites that demand a quick commute to their workplace 25 miles away) but can't force the DOT to pave the shoulders and fix the potholes on the roads getting out into the countryside. (or re-time the lights to favor cross town east west inner city traffic instead of long distance north sout commuters speeding through the inner city neighborhoods to get to their culdesace out yonder.

    Doing the floral arrangements on a yuuuuuge estate/ farm in Westchester. A lot more money, but the same obsession with Asian decor. What is with Jewish women and Asian decor? This place just looks like my mom's house if my mom were a billionaire.

    "Begs the question"

    But that's not really what has me fuming right now.

    Reviewing a presentation, meeting starts late so no chance in getting through it, interrupted constantly by "Are you going to mention..." "Are you going to talk about..." "You need to develop the theme of..."

    If you'd shut your damn pie hole and let me get through the goddamn thing maybe you'd see I thought of that you gibbering moron.

    The next person who says or types "Wow. Just Wow" within my earshot/eyeshot is getting punched in the face or through the interwebz somehow.

    I recently had to explain to an internal stakeholder where to find their campaign revenue performance. I've been sending them the report which clearly outlines this performance...for a year.

    Thule's completely useless, contradictory, and puzzling web-based fit guide. Finding the Higgs Boson is simpler.

    ... and on a completely unrelated note, anyone out there know what feet/adapter kit/whatever I need to buy to get my rack on a '12 Impreza with the integrated factory "holes" (now covered by a cap)?

    Every couple of years or so (today happened to be the day) a bee or a wasp bounces off the inside of my arm/elbow and lands on my upper thigh/groin where they sting me. Fucking things are so painful and I'm left grabbing at my crotch for a half hour trying to rub away the pain.

    Must look fantastic for passing motorists.

    Calling a bank and getting an automated service which refers to itself in the first person. As in, "Briefly, how can I help you today?" Me, "Get me a real human on the phone". It, "OK, Right away, but first I'll need some basic information in order to direct your call to the right person". And on and on it goes until I get a real person.

    Automated call answering at companies pisses me off.

    Here's my Thursday grump.

    • I'm off the bike for several weeks. I'm OK with it now. Let's see how much of a raging beast I am in 2 weeks.
    • I'm out of work for several weeks. Sick time is good but I will get bored. Thankfully it's summer. Pretty girls in sun dresses beckon, so maybe this ain't so bad.
    Go chill in Grand Haven for a while. Get a place on the beach. Get lots of beer. Decompress. Nice spot in the summertime.

    We were on our way to Grand Haven when I fell off. It's a nice ride out to there. I do need to go get some beer and some victuals for the evening though. This is going to be the longest break I've taken from anything in nearly 9 years since I left Switzerland after being pushed out of my old airline there along with 600 of my closest friends.

    I will chill. And I will not disturb the continuity of this bitching and moaning thread anymore!

    The increasing political-zation and cause-ization of my Facebook feed, which devolves into sniping between the firm Lefties and firm Righties, as opposed to actual adult discourse.

    I'm thinking once the Olympics are over I may have to log off until after Election Day.

    The segmentation of bike vs. real world stuff. That kinda bugs me.

    Priuses (or whatever the freaking plural of Prius is) in the fast lane. You didn't buy that car to drive over here so move over. BTW, Atlanta has 6 freaking lanes in one direction. Why do people feel they have to be in the far left lane to drive 60mph?

    Extreme San Diego homerism. Every San Diegan I've met seems to think San Diego is clearly the only reasonable place to live, citing the weather, beaches, fish tacos, hot women, beer, beaches, and everything else that San Diegans deem important. Never mind that the whole place looks like a spanish style strip mall and the best breweries are spread across a 2500 square mile tangle of 8 lane freeways and brown hills dotted with beige condos housing botoxed plastic people.

    Welcome to Grumpy Thursday August 2, 2012 now go away.

    $2.50 That is the newstand price you pay fir the New York Time in order for you to look all stoic n' shit while you spill your Grande S.American Sphinx Minx blend over the Weekend Styles Section

    The buyers model is upside effin' down. Large newspapers should give it away at firesale prices to generate ad revenue and lost leader electronic media interest nes pas?
    Basically, I'm PO that the pleasurable experience of holding newsprint has become such a symbol of affluence when in my experience it is the polar opposite.
    Grump away y'all it's THURSDAY.
