Yup. I don't often drive up there, but I notice most people chill in the middle lane so they don't have to react to anyone getting on the beltway from the right.

Christmas Cold...man I was sick as fuck from Monday thru this morning. Missed all the Christmas family events.

I got my flu shot...so at least not that, but the older you get the slower the bounce back.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Boss doesnt drink coffee.

Boss decides we have too many coffee cups in kitchen so he throws away half the coffee cups. I asked him why he threw away all the good coffee cups (the newer larger 16 oz ones) and left the old dirty 10-12 oz ones.

He said bc those were the ones at the front of the cabinet.
Co-worker tells him that bc those are the ones we use.

Now I am walking around the office with the coffee right at the brim of my mug spilling on my hand and floor. And these mugs are old as hell. All dusty and perma-stained.

I think he was pissed bc very few people showed up to work on Christmas Eve.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Having the FLU...so I got a Flu Shot about a month ago, but appeartently I got a Flu Shot that only protected me from the 'B Strain' of the Flu and not the 'A Strain' of the Flu. So I got sick in Christmas Eve and felt like crap on Christmas Day, but I made it to Church as all of the Chirstmas celebrations . I was finally able to make it to the doctor yesterday, and I was diagnosed with the 'A Strain of the Flu'. So now I am on Tamiflu, I am stuck not being able to leave the Condo Unit, and my wife has been forced to stay with her parents, since the doctor does not want me to be around anyone. Having the Flu REALLY Sux!

People really aren't aware about the different strains of the flu. The vaccines available in your area are distributed based on which strain they think will be most prevalent in the region for the year. It's why they're not 100% effective. I had the same problem last year, got a flu shot, then got the flu like 2mo later. It'll pass. Hope you feel better soon.

You are in the minority, those ads are everywhere.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Did this Peloton social media backlash hurt or help Peloton? I read their stock went down but not sure if it was related.

Any advertisement is good advertisement. As long as they are talking about you.

I think that may only be true with celebrities not goods for sale.

Gerber wouldn't be excited about a bunch of press that their baby food had glass in it, though Paris Hilton would be excited everyone was talking about her latest sex tape.

I think it helped. It got people not interested in their product to view the commercial.


Just heard a Peloton ad on theTeam980. can't get away from these people.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Grocery store meat departments.

This is a national problem, not just a local one.

Two fold.

I went to Giant last night to get 1 lb of ground beef as my taco dinner kit instructed me to.

1. why the fuck is there never just 1 lb ground beef packages? Why are they always 1.34 or 1.27 lbs? I dont think i have ever had or tasted my tacos as Old El Paso wants me to. That extra .34 of ground beef most assuredly dillutes the taco seasoning that was intended for 1 lb only. No wonder my tacos taste meaty vs taco-y. This just isnt me being nit picky. Ive heard many of people complain about this.

2. Every package was exactly weighed out to 1.34 lbs. Like 8 of em. Im calling bull shit. So youre telling me that your butcher guy has this magical ability to exactly weigh the same ground beef every single time. Like every single time he goes to separate a pound or so of ground beef he always magically nails 1.34 lbs?

Or, alternatively, he doesnt want to have input the numbers for each individual label for each individual weigh and says fuck it, Ill just make all the labels 1.34 lbs.

Fuck it indeed. Who needs flavorful tacos as they are intended or to not be ripped off for paying for 1.34 lbs of ground beef when really you probably got like 1.23 lbs. Fuck it.

Vegan here. Crumble which is a plant based alternative is an awesome ground beef replacement for chili tacos etc. looks tastes just like ground beef but zero grease. That is my vegan post for the year. Thanks for listening. Lol
