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??
yes! sometimes i've had to go back as many as 3 times to get the whole damn thing. i'll never understand

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.
i can't even listen ot the radio for that reason, whenever 100.3 dropped the oldies, that's when i bowed out. now i burn 10-12 albums to a cd-r and go w that for weeks at a time.

i worked in beltsville in an office where they liked to leave the radio on all day, it was around the time when that boots w the fur song came out, i think i heard it 10 times a day, every day. really reinforced my faith in humanity and our civilization

HA! Yeah, I mean I don't mind some guilty-pleasure generic pop every now and then, but "I'm Sexy and I Know it" has to be the most overplayed, crappy song of this generation.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Growing up I worked in Pizza joint (5 years) that had a jukebox that only played two songs when it didn't have money it.

They were:

Copacabana

Red Red Wine

If I hear those songs at anytime I will instantly go into epileptic seizure.

I'd take epilepsy over either of those songs.

holy shit i would have sabotaged that machine after a couple weeks.

i worked at one restaurant for just over a year, the main prep cook would listen to the same tape multiple times a day, every day. the only song i recognized was "lady in red", luckily i was out front most of the time and didn't have to bear it.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

For some reason I worked every Xmas EVE; mainly to get out of going to church with the family but I can remember the songs being exceptionally bad on that day(s). Reason being it was so slow on Christmas Eve night and it be just a handful of us working so it was quiet other then those two songs on a continuous loop.

I am being dead serious here but for a while my mind blocked out where I know those songs from; we are talking years later but I once went back to visit (we are talking like 5 years) and I hear them playing again and it all came rushing back to me. I don't remember really hating them but I can remember being so ingrained in my mind. Like when you were cleaning the dining room you just hum them with out even knowing.

Strange how powerful music is to us.

I wouldn't. It'd be nice to be able to go near strobe lights and not have to worry about what might happen if I keep my eyes open too long. I was just at the Halloween Haunt at Kings Dominion and some of those damn "haunted houses" had strobe lights in them and I had to close my eyes and put my hand on my friend's shoulder to guide me through the house because the lights were starting to cause a seizure.

Which I guess leads me into this: You know what grinds my gears? Strobe lights. Ruins concerts, parties, haunted houses at KD, etc. for me.
