That's pretty close. Not rant-worthy.

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.

I can't believe my earlier rant about phone books and yellow pages failed to draw a single comment.

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.

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.

TLDR

I can't stand comcast bunch of ass nuggets. In October of last year I was pissed that they were going to be imposing there data cap on my internet usage. Just a few months before that I made the move of cutting the cable cord and was enjoying saving about a hundo a month and now they were telling me basically I can't stream shit otherwise they will start charging me like $25 for each additional 100gb or some shit (I can't remember the exact number). Anyway they say that they are giving you a few months to adjust and you won't be liable for overages if you do go over for a couple months. Two months passes and I use up the data cap for each and seeing that my usage was as high as I expected I call and they ask what can they do, they say they are offering for an additional $50 a month an unlimited data option and seeing I have no other option really I sign up right there. They tell me that it would reflect on my bill and I say cool, I use automatic payment to save a few bucks and will just expect that to be a little extra duh. Fast forward to March 11th, I see my bank account has had $450+ withdrawn by Comcast and I am pissed to see my bill now has me being charged for additional data usage, I have the fuggin unlimited option! I call and bitch and bitch to a couple people and I am put on hold for hours on end. Eventually I get a person who says that they will now add the unlimited option and that my account didn't have that option ever added. They also say that they will credit my account the 450 and she says I won't get charged for a few months because obviously the credit from the charge will pay my bill. April 11th I see a comcast fuggin charge for 320 gotdamn dollars and I call and the first lady says that it was never added last month and that they wouldn't be able to credit the 450 or the 320??!?!?!?!?! I say to her so I am telling you I called in December and was told the unlimited package but you're saying since your employee didn't enter it into your system that I am liable for your fuck up and I am out about 800 bucks, she says "yes thats correct" I about had an aneurysm yesterday talking to this wench and she tells me I needed to calm down or she will hang up!!!! I say give me to your supervisor now, I talk to this women who brings me down back from level 8 anger to about a 3 and she says she can go back and listen to my conversations from December, so I am on hold for about an hour total as shes listening, she gets back on and is apologizing and everything and says that the 800 will be credited and she will make the adjustments in real time so I can see it on my bill and also says she will be sending me an email with a $50 visa gift code for all the inconveniences I have gone through the past few months. Got my bill credited, and I am looking to buy something on Amazon for about 50 bucks. Still fuk u comcast
