Random rants

One thing that I truly despise is when some forums require you to register as a member in order to be able to view pictures that are posted. That burns me up. I can't see any reason for it other than to try to coax someone searching or lurking into joining. It has the opposite effect on me. I refuse to join because of that. Maybe it's just me.

Feel free to post your random rants here as well.

While I'm on a roll...

I hate EPA regulations that require flow restrictors in shower heads. I use waster responsibly. I also pay for all I use. So let me shower in a stream with the force of a freaking fire hose if I like. I'm not even in the shower that long. Let me enjoy it, it's not wasting water. It's being put to good use. Or at least let manufacturers who put removable restrictors in them say so on the package (they can't because its illegal to remove them).

I hate when my wife or the housekeeper gets my socks separated in the laundry. I wear them as a pair. I take them off and put both of them in the exact same place every time. How hard is it to pick up and wash and dry both of them as a pair??? I do it. I've never in my life washed one sock from a pair without the other. Both or none. I guess that's why I usually do the laundry at my house, because everyone else screws it up.

Yup I've definitely developed a OCD for not joint sites that have this requirement! I can name 3 right off the bat. I still browse them sometimes but will not register.

I hate having to deal with all the bull**** artists when I'm trying to sell something on Craigslist. No, I'm not going to take 80% off my listed price because you'll pay cash and will pick up the item. I stated cash only and pick up only in the listing!

J, rough day?

About the forum joining crap, agreed. Why should one join to see one or two posts, never to return. For this reason, I never host pics on the forum site, but rather always embed them, with the hosting done elsewhere.

My own rant (happened this weekend), drivers who text and drive. Some driver blew through a red light, tboning the car in front. Could very well have been me (or a motorcyclist!!).

Another rant: when I'm driving in the right lane on the interstate, cruise set at or a little above the speed limit, and someone rides my *** when the left lane is open for passing - like I need to get out of their way. WTF is that all about!

While we're ranting on driving, I hate people who get on an interstate on ramp and never accelerate above 50 mph and never look at traffic in the right lane to merge with it until they are in the lane. Traffic is going 70-75 mph, that's how fast you should be going when you merge!!!

I'll do you one better.

I hate it when people try to merge onto the highway doing 25mph. Those a$$hats are gonna get someone killed FFS.
