Problem when you do that is if someone is trying to pull in to your bonus spot at the same time. I have seen it a few times.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

This annoys me to no end:

As you open your pockets for the next natural disaster, please keep these facts in mind:

The American Red Cross President and CEO Marsha J. Evans salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses

The United Way President Brian Gallagher receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.

UNICEF CEO Caryl M. Stern receives $1,200,000 per year (100k per month) plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE. Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause.

But thankfully we can rely on the good people at Salvation Army, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Military Order of Purple Hearts and Vietnam Veterans Association who take either a tiny amount (Salvation Army) or zero.

So for the next time you decide to donate, please consider the latter rather than the former.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I bought 2 tickets to a concert the face value of the actual ticket to the show is $56.00 apiece so $112.00 for the pair. Ok, im good with that, the advertised price. Ok so there is now a $8.00 charge called a "facility charge", ok gears are starting to turn...facility charge? Thats not parking, ill pay that the day of the show. Now there is a "convenience charge" of $20.20...gears fully grinding...whats the convenience? U f*cking found a another way to charge me something? WTF!!! And at the end there is a $3.55 "order processing charge". Are f*cking with me? So the $56.00 ticket is actually a $71.87 excluding tax. And the industry complains that tour attendance is down...really?

The music industry is just full of fail at the top.

Yeah I hear that. I try to buy concert tickets through CL if I can find a good deal, usually by the day of the show people will take anything to get rid of a ticket but you're gambling bigtime that way, because sometimes there are no tickets left on sites like CL. But I hear you on all those bs charges they add on, it is ridiculous.

See, I get super pissed if it's a busy parking lot and you can't see what's going on in the other aisle and I'm like, "AWESOME. Free spot!" and then some jerk-off pulls through and I'm half-way in the spot and they're just staring at me like, "Move."

Don't get me wrong, I definitely do the pull-through if I'm 100% sure that I can see and make sure no one else might want that spot. I've only had to get out of my car to yell at people maybe three times ever and two of those times came from a busy parking lot and people pulling through when I've already started into the spot and they just put it in park and got out.
