Here., they finish off the cat food we leave out for the neighbor cats. Then trash the place. Pull the bowl out drag it down the walk.. flip over the 'shelter'... Had one scream at me and try to attack me and one of my dogs one morning. While i do like all of natures creatures, they are annoying as all hell i agree.
At least when possums come by, they are like the cats, polite.

It may smell bad, but the coons are reducing your food waste, which is a good thing.
Damned price gouging on ARM boards of late.
( or is that more of a rant than being annoyed? )
Lazy asses that use the handicap buttons on a door as they are too freaking lazy to open a door...
Around the office. its amazing ..
Today's annoyance : Everything.

Reducing waste is good. Increasing the toxicity of the area, not so good.
As the summer went on we ended up dealing with not only bad smells but also maggots all over the place. Fun fun fun!
Cars beeping every time people lock/unlock them when they are too lazy to use the key. AND car companies that *require* you to use it. That really pisses me off. One more reason to never buy a new car.
Last car i had with a remote lock, i took it off and left it at home.
Wife has one like that. Only key it has is one embedded in the 200 dollar fob ( i asked.. how much is a replacement ) so you can unlock the door if the battery is dead. I guess you get to sit in a cold car and wait for the tow truck or something.
Not long ago, it freaked out and refused to acknowledge the fob to start, even tho it unlocked the doors. Car was in effect a brick. I tracked it down to the car's battery, even tho it was 'working' it 'wasn't' and the ECM was freaking out. I was able to jump start it, in effect, and get it to the dealer. To the dealer as if you sneeze on the car they void warranty. "sorry this isn't covered, 500 bucks you owe us" for a freaking battery, and 20 dollar corroded cable. ( which i would have seen if i took it apart but figured the battery was serialized and recorded so didnt even try. Plus you have to take the damned wheel off and pull a panel to get to it.. idiot engineers ... ) "yes, if you did it yourself it would not void warranty since its not covered"
Burnt us again a year later. Same sort of thing " oh, its not covered, you owe us 275 to have looked at it, or 350 if you want us to fix it.. ( a 10 dollar part.. but now you are committed )
"Ok this is twice i have been burnt by this so-called warranty that doesnt cover crap, how do i know next time if something is covered before i come?" "well, you have to bring it in and we evaluate it at 275 dollars and then we decide" wtf.. no. Next time i'm demanding a list upfront. They will not want to deal with me.
Also gave me a lot of excuses "well, example is if the exhaust manifold breaks due to a bad weld its covered, but if a bolt breaks or the gasket fails, its not, so we have to look at it first" really? I tried to talk her out of paying for that "warranty".. "its a con job". now she believes me.
The fob i had on my Eldo was purely convenience. I'm ok with that idea, being optional, and i left it home. But the constant beeping and flashing of headlights around here night and day.. no.
Oh and remote start is also stupid. :) They added it to my jeep before i bought it, aftermarket. I tried it one winter when it was like 10 below zero. It started. Ok, that worked.. I wait about 5 minutes, go out. it wont blow hot ( or AC ) air on remote start, so the thing was still cold. So what the hell is the value?
Wed Nov 29 2023 21:17:56 EST from zelgomerI absolutely loathe this new wireless key fob shit. My last car had a fob and I left it at home, always used the physical key to unlock and crank. My current car is a pushbutton start, there's no physical key except for the one built into this massive brick of a fob that takes up most of my pocket space, and I frequently come into the garage to find doors unlocked or windows rolled down because I had accidentally hit buttons in my pocket. Yeah, that's right, it has a "feature" that some combination of buttons unlocks all of the doors and rolls all of the windows down. I can't imagine why anyone would ever want to do that. It has to be there only to troll me.

That reminds me, I know a guy who thought that pushing the lock button twice so that it honks is what "arms the alarm." Idiot... he probably still thinks that even though I told him that's not what it's for.
