I have already bought my Soundset ticket and I got some friends from Chicago driving up for it and staying with me. Turns out my older brother graduates college on the same day and I can't go. God ******* damnit.

I have been to my share of country concerts and it sucks when guys wear cowboy hats and then you are stuck not being able to see around them. I had a family at a Brad Paisley concert that was annoying. They had like 15 people in their party but were mad all of them couldn't get as good of seats as some of them did. If you sign up for the Brad Paisley fan club they have a random draw so you don't know where your seats are until the day of the concert when you pick them up. I don't think you can buy that many at once so they had to do a couple of purchases and hope they all get seated together. So the guy tried to get all 15 of them to cram in a space of about 5 seats and then had some of the girls stand on chairs as well. Then the guy didn't even pay attention. He was busy screaming to all of the girls so they could hear him the whole time. The security came, kicked the people that didn't have the tickets in that isle out, and then when the security left all of the people ran back to the same spot. The security would never kick them completely out of the concert so each time he came they came right back 20 seconds later. Then they folded up the chairs on the floor to fit in more friends in that small area. To make it worse, Brad Paisley signed a guitar he used and gave it to the only young kid in their party. The guy grabbed it and started showing the guitar to all the girls seated around me. I don't think he once paid attention while paying like $70 for the floor seats.

When you have to choose your country from a list online and it actually makes you scroll alllllllllllllllllllll the way down to get to the US.

********. Especially for a US based company. US should always be at the top, then alphabetical order can start.

Haha, I knew someone would bring something up like that.

It's strictly utilitarian in this sense though. The majority of their customers are almost certainly in the US. I shouldn't have to scroll past Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria....annoying.

When there are multiple escalators and people just stand on all of them. We have 3 escalators in our building, and in the morning when everyone is getting in to work they have one coming down and 2 going up. It's pretty much an unspoken rule that the middle one is the "express" escalator, while the outside one is for standing.

Now, I understand when there's a lot of people or someone ahead of you standing, you usually aren't going to keep walking up past them. Pretty much at least 3 out of 5 mornings the express escalator will be empty and the outside will have people about halfway up. Me and another person walk up at the same time, they are closest to the outside and I'm closest to the middle. They walk over to the middle one, and I think ok they are going to walk up. Get about 5 steps and they just stop and stand there.

WHY THE **** DON'T YOU STAND ON THE OUTSIDE ONE THAT IS WIDE OPEN AND FOR STANDING INSTEAD OF CLOGGING UP THE MIDDLE ESCALATOR!!!! I seriously want to stab every person that does this.

Haha, yeah, it's a matter of principle. The US should be at the top of the list for a US based company with a primarily US consumer base.

Also, people who take for ******* ever to wash their hands in the bathroom. I get nosebleeds ocassionally, especially in the beginning and end of winter.

Well I just had one so I pinched off my nose and went to the bathroom. Well, I walk in and there are guys using both sinks. The one guy just came out of a stall, so he's justified in spending a little more time doing it, but the other guy just pissed at the urinal. Yet there he was scrubbing the **** out of his hands as if he were preparing for surgery.

Dude, how dirty is your dick? Seriously. When I piss, I just give my hands a quick rinse unless I somehow get piss on them. Yet there I was, standing behind him waiting for the sink with a blood soaked tissue up to my face.....hurry the **** up man!

People who insist on faxing things. It's not 1992 anymore. Some guys sends me a fax, so I call him to give him an answer. He says, "Hey, you didn't need to call me, why don't you just fax it to me." Then he says he has a few more requests so I tell him to email them to me. He sounded surprised and says "Oh, you have an email?" I start to give him my email and he stops me and says he'll just fax them.

Am I missing something. Is there any benefit to faxing stuff over emailing it? Because to me, it takes longer, half the time the fax doesn't work because the machine is 20 years old, and it just wastes paper.

Being 6'5, my favorite is when people feel entitled to try to move in front of me and once I resist start getting pissed like it's their god damn birthright to be able to have a fully unimpeded view of the entire stage. I'm sorry that I got here 2 hours early just so I could get a spot close to the stage, now kindly **** off and find a different spot.

I'm pretty sure the person you are dealing with exists 20 years in the past. You should figure out what is going on there because you can probably make a killing by introducing time travel technology to the world.

Yes. I try to take stairs instead of the escalator if at all possible, but when there's no stairs I at least want to walk up the escalator. Problem is, there's really no room how our building is constructed to put the stairs up to the next floor except in the "emergency" exit that you can't use just regularly. So now I have to take the escalators with the commoners.

I start to give him my email and he stops me and says he'll just fax them.

Am I missing something. Is there any benefit to faxing stuff over emailing it? Because to me, it takes longer, half the time the fax doesn't work because the machine is 20 years old, and it just wastes paper.
See, that's just you having to deal with stupidity. We have over 300 locations across the US, and I would venture to guess that while they all have email, about 50 of them do not own scanners. Granted, the business we are in (recycled auto parts) isn't the most luxurious or hi-tech, but what this means is that we have a bunch of locations that have to fax EVERYTHING. At least now we have an internal fax number that forwards to our email, but still, how do you not own a scanner? And we are a large company, how do we not give every location a scanner?

Also, to your question on benefits of faxing, I get people telling me that faxing is more secure than emailing. I usually laugh, and just say oh okay...

My company (weather) has a bunch of clients that get warnings any time there are severe storms, snow storms, hurricanes, etc.

99.9% of the clients get it emailed to them, have a text sent to their phone, can access the warning through our various websites including on their phone....

This one god damn place in Canada needs it hand faxed to them.

I'll do you one better (I just realized this). Our credit card processer allows us to log on to their website to view disputed charges and take action, which is the way I would handle it if it were my responsibility. But since it's the responsibility of these old people that don't know how to use the internet and can't be bothered to log on to a website once a day, they want notices sent to them any time there's something outstanding. The only way this company can send out notices?

Fax.

We have our entire company's notices for credit card disputes on sales faxed to us. I'll reiterate that we have over 300 locations and probably process credit card sales in 9 digits each year. Not a pain in the ass at all...

This winter I had a hellacious cough. So bad that I puked... while driving. Managed to keep it all from making a mess in my car and pulled over and spit it all out my door. Then I saw a cop after pulling out. 'Twas awesome.

In addition to the "cough due to ****-sucking" insinuation, this post is full of far too many innuendos.
