In the past 100 years we have made unimaginable technological advances. Yet we have made marginal progress in human rights.

Oh wait, too heavy for this thread.

Taco Bell's power bowls are excellent. A damn shame they don't offer the green sauce any more.

My son can not fucking keep track of his socks. Every morning when we are getting ready for work/school, the little fucker either forgets his socks upstairs and comes down without them. Or conversely when I remind him 18x like I did this morning to not forget his socks, he brings them down without putting them on, then loses them before it's time to put shoes/boots on and leave. This morning he makes his way into the kitchen and eats breakfast, does his other dilly-dallying and it's time to go. Where are your socks? Blank stare. We check the 3 places he has sat since coming down. I know I had them when I got downstairs. I check all 3 places again. Finally out of frustration I go back upstairs and grab another pair of socks and fire them at him. He is putting the new socks and boots on when he finds the original pair in the pocket of his fucking hoodie.

There are people in this world who actually go about their days, freely using their smart phones, without the aid of any type of protective cover. Meanwhile, I have to buy military grade titaniumnyloplastic or whatever the latest waterproof protective jacket is made of because I can't hold onto my fucking phone for even one goddamn minute without fumbling it into the street or a mud puddle.

when my daughter was little, I set the snark standard early:

her: "dad have you seen my shoes".
me: "nope - you know why"?
her: "why"?
me: "because they're not my shoes".

I got an obscene amount of pleasure out of watching her stomp away..

Would've been more effective and dramatic stomping if she'd had her shoes on, but, you know, then your conversation with her about shoes would've been pointless.

Sorry. It's not as big a deal around here anymore because I can just toss the thing in the recycling. It was a bigger PITA when they'd only have a recycling pickup for a week each summer, and you had to drive somewhere to drop it off. But if you want me to be a little more upset, then I can put on my annoyed face for the rest of the day.

Must be nice to have curbside recycling.  In 2013 I moved from one municipality  to another bordering burb. No sooner do I move than my old city adopts curbside pickup. Of course, the new one still does not.

Still, while I'm not exactly a tree-hugger, it seems pointless to waste good paper by turning it into recycled paper.  Make people opt-in to phone books and yellow pages and charge them $9.99 a year.

Charging for it seems like a good idea to me. Of course, old-timers will bitch about how it used to be free, but we all find a way to bitch about something or other.
I was so pleased when EL went to the extra large recycling containers. It boggles the mind how much recyclable stuff used to go to landfills. They only pick up 2/month, and my container is almost always full. More so now, because we get Blue Apron and my wife just discovered the joys of Amazon Prime.
They still don't accept plastic bags, which bums me out. I still have to drive to MSU to drop those off. It's a quick drive, but that's one more errand to run every month. Tiny problems, I guess.

yeah, the big rollable recycling bins are nice. We fill ours up over the course of the two weeks.. and we probably only use the trash pick-up once per month.

Aspercreme Lidocaine back patches are your friend. Or the gel lotion, which you can get in a Walgreens generic for a couple bucks less.

Noted.

Still have not caught the fucker that's been throwing an unsubscribed newspaper at the end of my driveway early every Saturday morning for years.

WBH lives around the corner. Keep forgetting to ask if the worthless rag gets dumped at the end of his driveway too.

I can't find my damn apple tv remote. There is no other way to turn on my apple tv. I have the app but that doesn't work when the shits off. Why doesn't the fukkin box have buttons on top of it. This is complete bull shit, did the remote grow some damn legs and run away? Ugh this has ruined my morning.

Was a huge problem in my college house. Why do remotes not have a 'call' button like wireless landline phones use to?

It actually wouldn't be to hard to have like a ping button on apple tv box that would make the remote make some damn noise.  Or like the find my iphone/ipad find my damn remote. I am going full Mr. Mom minus the kids and cleaning my whole house.
