I can see where the annoyance is coming from on two-piece swimsuits - five items is two and a half bathing suits, not super helpful. Doesn't change the rule and arguing about it won't get anywhere, but it still sucks.

We got that a couple of times at the bookstore. Then there was the woman who asked how to spell CVS (we used it as a landmark when giving directions)...

Even the smell of pineapple makes me ill. I am totally down with leaving it off of everything, forever. *shudder*

I'm supposed to be evaluated for this but I keep putting it off. Not sure how a diagnosis would make my shoulder falling out of the socket any better, really... although my ankle went for the first time recently and that one really sucked. :-P Meanwhile, this twat needed a whack with the clue-by-four.

It's one of the few ways they can give a cashier's-discretion discount without getting called out on it. The place around the corner gives it to me from time to time just because they like me, and I'm in my thirties and can pass for late twenties easy (I still get carded all the time).

That and the missing "a" in "damaged" and extraneous apostrophe in "it's".

Yikes, what a dickhead. But man, how slow do you have to drive and how long do you have to stop to take 10 hours to go 400 miles? I do that with one stop max and around 6 hours...

I keep the clay stuff in my car to use for traction on ice if necessary. My spoiled kittyboys will only use the corn litter anyway...

Man, I thought the one I found last week that expired in 2010 was bad...

My "favourite" was the one who asked where non-fiction was and, when I asked him to be more specific, looked at me like *I* was a complete moron and sneered, "You know - true stuff." I started rattling off subsections in alphabetical order until he went away.

You don't even want to know what kind of hell would break loose if you put the sticker anywhere but the top right corner. Didn't matter what was on the cover or how much info got covered up, you put those damn stickers anywhere else on the cover and the DM would rip you a new one. :-P

I love fonts. I have about 600 on my computer, most of which I've sought out and downloaded myself. And some of which I never use, because THIS happens. :-P

Yep. Italian nouns which end in "a" take their plural in "e", while if they end in "o" it changes to "i". Feminine, masculine, blah blah blah. Bambino, bambini, y'know?

I had one manager who was able to make "fantastic" into "fuck you" just by his tone of voice. It was lovely.

I went to school in Rochester, NY, and we used to laugh ourselves sick at kids from FL and TX and southern CA who'd be all bundled up in October and we were just like, oh, honey, you have NOOO idea what you're in for. Although the year of the eight-foot snow drifts was a LITTLE excessive...

Very cool! Wish the camera had been closer to the end though, to see the turnaround.

It took me nearly five minutes today to convince my dad that "arse" has an "e" on the end of it. Seriously, the man needs to read more.

Awwww, that makes me miss Jingle Ball Bob - that was always his interpretation of "festive dress". Died about 8 years ago, damn he was funny.

I'm one of those people for whom cilantro tastes like soap, so that whole list looks soapy to me...

Reminds me of the time we had a long line at the look-up desk and somebody called the store FROM THE LINE to try and skip the queue. As soon as we heard the echo we figured out who it was, said uh-uh no way, and went back to helping the front of the line.

I got my sister a pair of the anti-fart undies as a joke a couple of Xmases ago. Dunno if they work but it was funny as hell.
