    Bitch about them ITT

    When I'm in my car and listening to satellite radio, I have a very specific preference as to where on the display I like the clock to be positioned. But if I plug in my iPod, the location of the clock display changes. And I have to re-orient the lay out. But if/when I switch back to satellite, the new position index is carried over and changes location and I have to re-orient again.

    It's infuriating.

    I am a beta tester for Sonos, I got a bunch of their equipment for free. I hate that when there is a beta ongoing, about 4 months out of the year, I have to update my software on my phone, my wife's phone, my tablet, my wife's tablet, my computer and the system. Sometimes there are multiple updates a week!

    The instructions for the stroller I'm putting together for our dog are wrong.

    Ohhh I get it, it's not the instructions that's the first world problem part, but the fact that you have to drive your dog around in a stroller. Good one

    I'm getting impatient to find out if my firm is going to give me a fairly large raise just because some other firms have done it for their associates.

    Sometimes people start really stupid threads on my favorite beer forum.

    If I'm listening to an iPod or iPhone in my truck and turn the ignition off to get out, when I start the truck back up again, the song I was listening to starts over again instead of picking up where it left off. So, if I have to make a few local stops - get gas, grab a cup of coffee, etc- I listen to the first part of the song that is on over and over again.

    Sometimes I'll see where the song is leaving off and fast forward to that spot when I get back in.

    If I'm fast forwarding past commercials on recorded shows, I have to hit the "pause" button because apparently the "play" has worn out on my Directv remote.

    Yeah my DVR remote is going out so sometimes I have to use an app on my phone to control it.

    I want a soda, but the 12-pack I bought is all the way in the car...

    ... now I have to wait 1 hour for Amazon Prime Now to bring another 12-pack to my door. Sigh.

    Sometimes my video baby monitor loses signal if my company paid cell phone is too close. So then I move the cell phone to the lower shelf on my night stand next to my Cali king bed in my 3200 sq ft home purchased atop revoked tribal land with my quarter mill annual household income.






















    In the morning I have to reach down for my phone to see if the baby is up "too early".

    Not to be rude, but this thread is for first world problems.

    The play and pause buttons are the same on the new remotes. Call them, you should be eligible for a free hardware upgrade.


    WTF! I just had to replace the battery on my wireless mouse after I typed this post. The extra batteries were *just* out of arm's reach.

    Wife is pissed about the chocolate chip pancakes this morning.

    She was already grumpy because the AC took a shit last night. Fan motor won't kick on, so as of 5:30pm it's been a balmy 73-74 in the house with a nice cross breeze, and apparently having to sleep with the windows open is not a big enough emergency to get the HVAC guy to the house on a Friday night!
