This is the best answer.

Gripe: People that are waiting in the drive thru line and block the pedestrian walkway, then (while not looking) move the vehicle forward and almost hit people walking around them

I was thinking about starting a dedicated thread to complain about my assistant instead of posting them in here.

She's not here today so I'm in a great mood. It's amazing how dealing with one person can ruin your day.

No camera rig on me today: I usually don't ride with it and it's at GoPro for horizon tilt, still.
First you want to walk out in front of me because "crosswalk," next you're going to want me to move over when I pass you on the road.

$2500 to repair.

Last year we replaced the tbelt (~$700) and last month put on a whole new exhaust ($1200)

So, after $4400 in repairs, I would probably be able to get about $4500 for it.

I hear you. I sold my RS for $1500 after putting $1500 into it less than a month before it spun a bearing.

**** you Bestop! You can claim it's supposed to be snug to prevent movement on the highway, but you made the thing too small and you know it.

I did that last week. Fortunately my work has a FCU on site so I could get some cash out with my badge.

What's the problem, all the money managers say you should invest your paycheck.

Throw a bucket of hot water on it, then zip it up the rest of the way...unless it was 90F when you tried that.

I used to have to do that on my old Tacoma cover

at the high-viz responses.

The ear things are admittedly goofy. They're Cat Ears, I believe. They cut down on wind noise and keep the ladies at bay.

The reason I dress like this is because I got hit by a car in NY while wearing a similar get-up, and the lady who cut in front of me swore she didn't see me. I swore that she was a ****ing idiot, because who could miss this clown suit. My health is worth more than OT style points to me.

Guy put in a change record. I review it and tell him verbally hey you didn't put X in the record. It wasn't a huge deal but it is something that needed to be done. I told him as long as he remembers to do it I will approve it and did. Today a ticket came in asking to do that thing he didn't do. Instead he gets all pissy and defensive saying he did do it although you can clearly see it was not done. Then he pastes into the chat window the change and how it wasn't part of the change.

Last week I had to find a store that used Andriod Pay and gave cash back. Then I found my wallet in the car on the floor about 20 minutes later.
