I haven't used the home value calculator or mobile check deposit, but online deposit is cool, plus you can go to any UPS store and they do the deposit too.

Great company all around.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I'll tell you what grinds my gears! Panhandlers! They are literally at every light for miles on my commute. They have their signs and their fake limps that magically disappear when they catapult into a full sprint like Usain Bolt when someone flashes a dollar. They must have gotten hurt during the sprint because they're limping again at the next red light as cars queue up. I'm watching you!
Thanks for making feel like a piece of shit after giving me that sad puppy face look cause the sucker in front gave you a dollar and now I have to pretend to be on my phone.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

So, I'm first chair on a fairly large case involving two other agencies who are providing co-counsel. On Friday, my supervisor say our response to the compplaint MUST be filed Monday the 15th because he agreed to that date with opposing counsel. In order to do so, the three authors of the motion need to have their parts done by COB today so that we can have the week to make sure the parts mesh. It's an artificial deadline b/c, by law we have until Nov. 2nd to file a response. Also, my part of the motion accounts for about 2/3's of it and the other two attorneys each have about one sixth. Yesterday was a government holiday and today I was a chaperone on my kindergarten aged daughter's first field trip.

Regardless, I say no problem and am at the office straight through Friday night (8:00 a.m. Friday, 7:00 a.m. Saturday) I go back and am at the office again Saturday night 7:30 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Sunday) and finish my part last night at home ~ 11:00 p.m.- 3:30 a.m. and have it e-mailed to all concerned.

I get home from the field trip, check the office e-mail from home and there is an e-mail from the boss extending the filing deadline to October 22nd. No explanation.

Thanks. Thanks a whole f'ing lot.

Oh, by the way, did I mention I have a trial tomorrow -- would have been nice to have spent Friday prepping for it.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Why is it so hard for some people to leave a proper voicemail? I get so many messages where people don't leave their name or number, or don't give me any clue why they are calling.

And on the flipside you have people that give you way too much info, and repeat their number 2-3 times. Enough already.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

^^ The ones I hate are the folks who leave a long-winded message and then zip through their number at the end. Used to be, I would have to listen to the whole f'ing message to get to the number - now we have a 3 second back button so you can replay just that part.

When leaving a message, I always say my name, warn phone number is coming ("my number is"), brief pause then say the number. Repeat once. leave message.

Is it that so hard to do??

What's up with voicemails in general? I'm sure there are professions that require them, but where I work if you give me an email, I have: a written record, I don't have to put in my voicemail password, I don't have to remember details of the voicemail and I don't have to spend my time on a long message.

Today a woman left me a long voicemail, physically WALKED to my office and left me a note saying, "Hey Ben, please call me."

It would have taken literally 5 seconds for an email saying: "Ben, how do I add network printers?"

Totally agree. I always give out my email address and tell people it's the easiest way to reach me. I'll typically answer an email right away. A voicemail... when I get around to it. Playing phone tag with someone in this day and age is ridiculous.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Amen. The biggest problem is when it's a voicemail saying, "Hey, this is _________. Call me back!" Thanks for the details.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Today I finally snapped on my local radio station...

Basically I don't like a ton of pop music anyway, but I DO enjoy the morning hosts so we listen to K92 on our way in to work. LMFAO came on AGAIN for the 12903102983012978127318979128731298731892nd time and I literally was like, "MOTHER ****ER! NOT AGAIN!" I called the radio station stating I would donate any amount of money to a charity if they retired that song for good.

I have never developed such an aversion to a song in my life. I'm STILL seething from even hearing the intro this morning. That's bad.
