Left lane traffic monitors

I can’t say it more clearly, nor can the rules of the road.

THE LEFT LANE IS FOR PASSING ONLY!

The left lane does not exist for you to pick what is “fast enough”  as*hole!

If you are not passing another car in the middle lane GET THE HELL OVER and let those of us who want to pass you, do so.  It’s not an ego thing, it’s okay if you get passed by my Prius.  Maybe if you’re lucky you can laugh at me when you see me pulled over a few miles down the road.

GET OUT OF THE LEFT LANE and let others pass!!!  That’s what the left lane is for! Continue Reading

It’s good to be PayPal

I’ll save my rant about auto insurance for another time – how nice is it to sell a product required by law that everyone who drives must buy?!?!??!

Anyway, being PayPal is good.  And eBay being very smart realized this years ago and bought them.  They seem to have absolutely ZERO liability for anything.  I am an eBay Power Seller and have sold 1000’s of items on eBay over the past 14 years (my original username I sold with my eBay consignment business was registered in 1994) and have used PayPal for a vast majority of sales.  And nothing has ever been their fault.  If my account gets hacked, it’s may fault – they take no liability – my money is gone all they say is sorry we tried to recover your funds and could not.  Then if I’m a seller and someone pays me with an account that got hacked that’s somehow my responsibility as well????  I didn’t approve the transaction, I didn’t decide it was a legitimate transaction – PayPal DID but somehow I’m the only who suffers.  I get the money taken back out of my account, I lose again.  It’s unbelievable.  How is the person who approved a transaction not at fault if it was a fraudulent transaction????  Unbelievable.  So someone got free tickets to a Red Wings playoff game and I had to give back (have it forceably removed from my account) the $377.77 I sold them for!!!  ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

I was stunned

Filed under: People,Stuff that really pisses me off — Scott @

I simply couldn’t believe it.  My wife and I along with our 1 1/2 year old daughter in her stroller were at the community center where our son takes a Tae-Kwan-Do class each week.  We’ve been going for several months now and with perfect regularity parents have pulled up chairs along the window on the side, then curving out toward the door then starting rows behind.  It’s tough to explain and I’m not going to draw it – it really doesn’t matter at all – it does not change what shocked me, what happened was ridiculous even without a very well known informal seating situation.

Sit in your seat!

As you’ll learn if for some reason you continue to read my rants with any regularity I have many pet peeves (aka…things that piss me off) and I decided a long time ago that this world would be a better place if I were in charge of more stuff.  For example…..better control over seating at sporting events.  I suppose relying on human decency and common courtesy wouldn’t seem like a bad plan, but I think we all know better.  As I’ve said before; people suck.

When you go to an event.  A sporting event, a concert, a play – anything that requires a ticket your ticket will have a section number, a row number and a seat number printed on it.  SIT THERE!  It’s very simple, there are dozens of ushers who will help you find your seat- SO FIND IT!  If your ticket says Section 452, you are not in the lower level – find stairs going up when you arrive at the venue.  If your ticket says row ZZ you are not likely directly behind the dugout.  Don’t take your $8 ticket and try to sit in front of me in my $54 lower level seat.  If you want to sit in the lower level, buy a lower level ticket jackass!
