Grinding my gears.... waiting for health insurance cards from your employer after doing their open enrollment, just to find out it's not being taken out of your check meaning they haven't done a damn thing! Not only that, but the person you have to talk to is on vacation till mid next week, and here I am waiting to cancel my other garbage insurance. Not going to pay that premium, then pay the work premium(over $1000 for both) just because someone doesn't know how to do their damn job. Mistakes happen, but when it costs ME money, I don't care about an 'oops' fix it.

Unfortunately, the concept of a work ethic and doing your job to the best of your ability seems to be going the way of the Dodo bird. What ever happened to putting in an honest days work for an honest days pay?

They, (we) retired. But still help out doing volunteer work.

Not my first one but the first this season. Time to get the mouse trap back out there. Fortunate I saw this and then there no live ones in there. OK no dead ones too. Grandson brought my leaf blower back. All cleaned up and ready to put it back together.

Casts grind my gears. In particular, casts in summer heat and humidity. I would really like to go for a swim, or a sail or a blast on the Norton or a rip in one of the SHOs but mostly I would just like to be able to scratch a couple of inaccessible itches. That would just be great.
