Ok, just for fun - because you know we all have our little gripes that in the grand cosmic scheme of things don't really matter. What little annoying thing is troubling you today that no one really cares about - except you. (it's supposed to be a fun thread, not negative by the way - for a little laugh)
Mine is my new flip flops that squeak oddly when I walk. My old pair broke and the new ones are noisy... sigh.
I bought the wrong mountain bike wheels and had to order new brakes as a result. It is a very very 1st world problem. So much so that I had to keep myself from posting anything about it on Facebook
I thought that was what Facebook is for.
For sure. Most people post far more trivial things on Facebook!
that's definitely a larger problem than my friends falsie eyelash issues she keeps posting about... lol. I'd rather read about mountain bikes.
I broke my floor. I am not quite sure how. I am even less sure how to fix it. I can walk around the little hole. It is about the size of a quarter and it is not very deep. It just looks like a hole in a stone floor.
Have you tried youtube? I live in an old charming farmhouse (moneypit cough) and whenever things break and we don't already know how to fix it, we youtube lots of great answers to problems
If you have some stone that is a pretty close match you can patch it. If worse comes to worst you can make a repair with a photo, a piece of plastic, and some grout. Fill the hole to the correct height with grout that closely matches your stone, take a photo of your floor and color-correct it for the area of your floor that is damaged, put the photo on top of the grout, and cover with a piece of hard clear plastic. It will be a lot less noticeable until you can get someone in to repair it.
My metrics are down on all client reports at work because of the summer slope. Gotta love those first world technology problems! :-D
I accidentally bought diet cola instead of normal cola and it doesn't turn slushy in my frosty cup, it just ices up around the sides... I really wanted a slushy cola!
I have bunions and arthritis on both of my feet. My doctor would only do surgery on one foot at a time because he said it wouldn't be right to have me walking around on two hurt feet. Well, now the foot that I had surgery on hurts and so does the other one. So, the reality of it all is I AM walking around on two hurt feet after all. Bummer!
My AeroVoir doesn't keep my AeroGarden filled to the right height and I have to adjust it by raising it, but I can't find the right height object to put underneath it.
Also the people who replaced the batteries in my electric toothbrush whined to me about how difficult it was.
My cell phone's battery is at 34% and it's only 1:30. Ugh! Hate to have to recharge during the day!! Darn I Heart Radio sucks all the juice.
I bought a good new cell phone battery on sale and now I cannot get the cover off the back of my phone to replace it!
Only having enough money to eat at Landmarc and Komo, not Nobu(seriously).
A young adult friend can't get a state ID because she doesn't have a social security card and can't get a social security card because she has no state ID. She also can't get a state ID because she only has one set of proof from column four to prove her residency and that is school records with no school photo ID.
I can sympathize. When I moved to Illinois from Missouri, I had stupidly let my license expire and I didn't have a social security card because my mother still had it and had misplaced it. This was many moons ago and I still remember it, because despite the fact that my expired license had what was clearly my pic on it; I could not use that to get another copy of my SS card - and I needed the SS card to get a new license issued in Illinois since my MO license was expired. This drug on forever until I finally was able to talk my way into getting a copy of my birth certificate which I then used with a student ID and utility bill to get the SS card reissued so I could get my license... what a PITA. I have never let a driver's license expire since that though! lesson learned lol.
I like to repair the soles of my shoes when they are getting tired (and my feet). I used to be able to go to the dime store and get a pack of rubber soles with a little tube of rubber glue (only it was much stronger?), they were everywhere. I can't find them at any store, and have resorted to finding them online, but they are even getting hard to find there.
I think we live in such a "disposable" society anymore, people rarely try to fix things and just throw them away. I find that kind of sad. It's nice that people want to repair things and too bad you can't find the materials you need to do it easily.
It rained for 3 days, so I didn't check my tomatoes until today. About 50% of my cherry tomatoes that were close to red split open and were eaten by ants. Good news is the ants were well fed!
My dog also won't stop licking her butt. Not in a quick normal way, but more like slurping ice cream. Ugh
Ugh. I had a dog that suddenly started doing that, licking herself like her butt had started manufacturing chocolate chunk ice cream rather than poo. The solution was a dog toy called a Kong filled with peanut butter or gooey cheese. Once she got her oral fixation satisfied with the toy, she stopped making such a production out of licking her bum.
Sorry about the tomatoes - we've had crazy stupid amounts of rain so a lot of our tomatoes split too at times, but we've still had a decent year. As for the dog, eww. could she be wormy or something maybe? Not sure what makes them do that. I used to have one that drug his carcass across the floor all the time. ugh.
I had a but dragging dog too. Made a mess of the carpet. Forever cleaning it, but I still loved the dog dearly.
We had a chow-pei mix, a short-haired dog like his Shar-Pei daddy, and his tail curled over his back. Sometimes when he sat down he left a polka dot on the carpet. Ugh!
Dragging their behind on the carpet is a sure sign that they are having a problem with their glands. You need to take them to the vet and he knows how to empty them. (It smells so bad when he does that you can't breathe.)
If your dog has always done this, he must think the carpet is TP.
That's a great fix Kylyssa, thanks for the tip. My dog keeps looking at me with her big brown eyes asking when we're going for a walk but my foot is in a 'moon boot' and I can't walk! Such is life
Spot has the hiccups.
Paradigm, your pic reminds me that my glasses never stay clean - no matter how careful I am not to touch the lenses, I always see a blur or spots and it drives me insane, so I take them off and end up with a headache due to eyestrain.
Ooh! My Samsung Galaxy Y GTS 5360. It sucks my blood. Whenever I have to attend a call it tortures me. I have to swipe it again and again which irritates me.
My husband says that his very existence irritates me. Sometimes he is right.
I want to buy something on Amazon but I can't use PayPal .
My HubScore dropped 3 points and I don't know why . Wah wah wah.
My HubScore rose 3 points and I don't know why . Wah wah wah.
Oh, I know--I hate that about Amazon!
There are many people who only use Pay Pal. WTH is their problem with accepting it???
I'm not absolutely positive, but I strongly suspect merchant fees are double or even triple that of Visa and MC. If true and if I was Amazon, I'd tell PayPal to take a hike, too.
If so, that truly sucks, as it shuts out MANY people from being Amazon customers...folks like myself, who have gotten rid of credit cards, and PayPal is the only means we have of shopping online.
They are losing customers this way...and they need to have a long talk and negotiation with PP.
Because we already had an issue with ID theft a few years back, there is no way in hell I'm putting my debit card out there online!!!!
I know the feeling... PayPal does keep poking me with a stick to get one of their Visa cards. What with always keeping a low balance there, I've been thinking of giving it a shot.
I looked into that before, and would not 'qualify.' WTH?? It's not a real, actual credit card; it acts as a debit card against your PP balance. So, NO risk to them. But, the application process included a credit check, so I bailed.
I know I wouldn't pass that...due to some unfortunate and unavoidable issues in the past with trying to keep a roof over our heads, my credit is in the toilet.
1st world problems....My fluffy comforter is not the correct shade of gray to go along with my brand new sheets....such a disturbance to see everyday...ugh!!! LOL
I can't get Filezilla to work with my current webhost and their "help" pages are extremely outdated and not useful. the "support" person I've been talking to doesn't have a clue and this should be a very easy thing for them to handle. It's an error on their end that keeps timing out when I try to connect and I've done everything I can and explained it to them - its' been going on for 3 days. Time to find a new host and transfer a mess of websites to a new host I guess - except I can't get the FTP to work to download the most current version of my sites. Gah!
If it's WordPress, try Tools > Export.
Sadly my old site is HTML hand coded and wasn't a word press site - so I don't think that I can import it directly into a WordPress theme right? If there was a simple way to do this I'd sure be thrilled . I figured I'd have to customize my Template the way I want and then go through and copy and paste all the content into the new version of the pages and then use the plugin that converts to the .html extensions so that none of my pages lose their original location. ugh. sigh.
You might have to copy/paste your content, but you don't have to do the other thing (html extensions). Set up your linking template and put your link setting so that it shows something like www.mysite.com/title-of-my-page.
Copy/paste your information into either pages or posts. Go through and correct links (WordPress has great means of finding relevant content within your site).
Don't be discouraged; I converted one of those sites with 24 pages and 250+ posts in about a week. You can use the broken link checker plugin to detect broken links, and then afterwards deactivate it (it will slow down your site if you leave it running).
Awesome, still a big undertaking I have like close to 500 pages on that site - it's my oldest and I should have done this much, much sooner, but I've been resisting change lol.
Christin S, I have the same problem and about that many pages too. The whole process feels overwhelming at this point.
I've really gotten the hang of it. I started by redoing one of my smaller websites first in WP with a responsive theme. It's helped my traffic increase by quite a bit too! That kind of makes me maybe a little bit more excited about continuing the monster of a website... almost. lol. Ah, change is never easy.
I scanned an oil pastel drawing and now my scanner bed has oil pastel smudges all over it.
Next time use cling film or the clearest sheet of #4 plastic film you can find.
This is an awesome solution, seeing as I'm creating an animation in oil pastels. I'm going to try one of those clear plastic folder things and tape it to the scanner so its crease at the fold can serve as the stop to line up the frames in the scanner.
I'm drawing a flowering garden starting from a point and expanding outward which I'll animate backwards so it looks like it's a garden warping and sucking into a point.
It is so hot outside today that I am forced to do my daily walk on the treadmill in the air conditioning. Even though I've got both the AC and the ceiling fan on, I'm still getting all sweaty. Yuck. And the little shelf that holds my laptop up on my treadmill console so I can surf and walk at the same time, is made of plastic and causing my my hands to sweat as they rest on it while I type this. Boo hoo!
Also, my pool light is burned out and I've got teenagers coming over to swim tonight.
Too bad so sad!
Spot ate Fluffy.
My trials and tribulations are never ending; I don't know how I deal with it all. I had to wait a full 25 seconds for my utility company's newly designed webpage to load before I could pay my bill.
I had to take like 10 "selfies" today to try to get an acceptable image for my new profile pic... turns out my arms are kind of short, so I had to make my husband take a picture of me so I didn't have that strange "my arms are too short to take a selfie" look in my profile pic.
I had to scoop the dog poop in the backyard today.
Also, the honeysuckle vines that cover the side fence I share with my neighbor are wilting from the heat.
Yeah well.... a year ago my husband checked the sex of our 2 new cats. Girls. We named them Big Girl and Mittens. Mittens gave birth to 3 kittens today!
There's an air show this weekend at the local small-craft airport, which is about a mile from my house... so all weekend long, the only thing we'll be able to hear is RRRRRRRRRR ROOOOOOOOAAARRRRR RRRRRRRRRR ROOOOOOOAAAAAAAAARRRRRR as the planes fly back and forth over our heads.
...on a totally unrelated note, I've had the Dixie Chicks song "Goodbye Earl" stuck in my head all day and I have no idea why.
A long, long time ago..., I used to live in a town that bordered LAX. Never again. Whenever relocating, always check where the nearest airports are and their flight paths. Trust me.
I have a student who was auditioning for a role in her school play and now I have that stupid "Under the Sea" song stuck in my head (with steel drum accompaniment, no less).
I had a heck of a time getting my answering machine to work with my all in one printer/scanner/fax machine.
Trader Joe's stopped carrying Emergent C. Good thing Costco started carrying Emergent C again.
The other day, I spilled iced tea all over the counter, the floor, my shorts, and my brand new Birkenstoks that I was otherwise being very careful to NOT wear when doing anything wet or messy! Grrrr
I took my kids on a gold panning trip and my youngest one had a very short attention span and wouldn't let us get more gold out of the creek and we had to go home, after a 3 hour drive to get there.
Changing the bed linen. I can't decide whether to use the thin blanket one more time or is it time to switch to the first thick blanket.
Well, that depends. If you would like summer to continue, I suggest the heavier blanket, because that will guarantee that it stays warmer longer - at least that's how it works around here in the Midwest. .
Yep, and I always wash the car whenever I want it to rain (I like rain).
Water all of the plants and it will rain the next day too.
Paypal fees can be high. One of my clients decided to pay me through PP rather than by bank transfer and I was charged £40 on their payment of approximately £1000.
I thought you have to register a third-party credit/debit card with PP in order to have a full account with them.
I would not take out PP's own card since I only use my account for online purchases/payments from a few clients. Besides, I already have 3 credit cards after Barclaycard decided to replace the Mastercard I previously had from them with an Amex card plus a Visa card.
If the amount in PP ever gets a bit too high, I transfer the surplus to my own account.
