My favorite radio station playing the same music by the same musicians over & over, it is redundant.

Advertisements aimed at dumb people.

I am not, and I will not buy that product, just for insulting my intelligence.

So there.

• Reality tv shows (was just at cable co today paying my bill and asked if I could cancel all the channels that carry reality tv shows. She said "but that would be 90% of the channels" I replied "Yes". :lol: )
• Advertisements that run (in some cases HUGE) across the screen during the tv segment (we pay enough for tv service to limit this to ad time, no?)
• People who expect you to move when in public walking with the right of way (I like to suddenly turn around and stop so that they have to walk around me)

Agreed. What happened to quality? It bugs me when I so much as see a typo in a post I make, luckily on this site you are allowed to edit for a substantial amount of time if you miss one. I could never turn out a crap item to sell.

Quality went the way of the dinosaur when 'planned obsolescence' came into vogue. Good for business, bad for everyone else and the environment.

Which is another thing that irks me. Stuff years ago used to be built to last (and provided jobs for people to service these goods as well as manufacturing them and their parts.) Plus it was not uncommon for this stuff to last 50 years or so. Now stuff breaks easy and fast because it's intentionally made cheap (so it forces you to buy again) and then these cheap things end up in the landfill, as it's worthless to fix them. :x

Ha. My parents always said/say that, but they call it "built-in obsolescence'. Damn shame.

People,
People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world
Were children needing other children
And yet letting our grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children
Lovers
Are very special people
They're the luckiest people in the world
With one person,
One very special person
A feeling deep in your soul
Says you are half now you're whole
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People, people who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world.

With one person
One very special person
A feeling deep in your soul
Says you are half now you're whole
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People, people who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world.

So where are they supposed to do that in? I was taught to cover your mouth when I was a kid.

The sleeve. Although sometimes it can be difficult, especially when you're standing on a crowded bus and holding onto your bags with one hand and holding onto the railing with another.
