I agree...a little common courtesy wouldn't hurt; prompt replies are always appreciated by me. One possible cause for the lack of a response within a reasonable amount of time, could be overly-aggressive spam filters on one's e-mail accounts. I remember once that my main e-mail account was purging so much e-mail that was not spam, that I was not responding whatsoever to an excessive number of e-mails, all which should have been answered promptly. I did manage to confound numerous e-mailers. Fortunately, I did correct that situation in time, before I really ticked off some e-mailers.

Well kids, looks like I'm going to be moving out of Mililani.

The BF decided to put the townhouse on the market today.

Living in Hawaii is increasingly showing its "bad side". I just received a notice to pay my car insurance that's due next week, and it was sent on the 6th!

Hmm, ask me tomorrow and I may remember something different, and I don't piss off easily, am pretty easy going, mellow, understanding, etc.

What DOES piss me off is...injustice! I cannot STAND unfairness, cruelty, injustice, oh I said that, and BULLIES that abuse their power!!! Cruelty to animals, abuse to anything that's weak....PISSES me off royally.

Impatience pisses me off. Yeah, I'm human, I get frustrated like anyone else at times, but it's the impatience that has to be loud, in others' faces, the impatient person that has to act out what they are feeling, yeah, truly impatient people do it, too. Look, it ain't a perfect world, none of us has walked on water, things are going to try our patience and we should know that, remember it, and arm ourselves with it, and just be easy going, speak when we have to, even bluntly but NOT get into that emotional tizzy that is truly impatience.

When I'm in a public restroom taking a dump and the guy in the next stall takes one too. He gets up opens the stall door and walks out of the bathroom WITHOUT washing his hands.

YIKES! Who knows what was on his hands when he touched the door knob?

Speaking of which....

I'm not sure which is worse when when people leave the rest room...

Either they don't wash their hands at all, or just think that by washing your hands in plain water under the sink with running water through your hands, sanitizes it.

EWWW!!.

hardly!!.

I, on the other hand, make sure that I wash my hands with soap & water before I leave the rest room!.

I infact, do that on the constant basis whether I am at home or using the public restroom.

How hard is it to wash those hand? for heaven's sakes?!?!?. GAWD!!.

I had a gal stop me one day and ask "Aren't you going to wash your hands!!! ?"....as I was pulling hand sanitizer out of my purse. Because the sinks were so gross. I always carry a bottle and use that instead quite often.

Ok... I got to stand up for some of us guys out here...

Some of us believe when we are taking our "#1's" in a public bathroom... we feel are own body part is much cleaner than the sinks in some places (think of how many guys do go straight from the urinal to the handle on the sink...and then where does it go from there...etc?)

I mean sheesh... If your just touching your penis...isn't that like anyother part of your body... I mean your gonna feel the backspray from the urinal if it does hit your hand...then you can wash...but what is so grotesque about touching another part of our body as you release some bodily fluids?

Now going "#2" that's a whole different ball game

And quite frankly some public bathrooms scare me... and all I do want to do is get in and get out!

Why they'd have to make the H3 so long?

Story: I was supposed to fix a client's computer tonight because their computer wouldn't startup properly. I get to the beginning of the H3 via H1, and my cell phone rang. I answer my cell, and it was the client's wife, calling to say that the computer was working properly. For the next few seconds, I dangerously drive with one hand on the wheel and my other hand holding my phone, and she repeated what her husband said, that it was okay. She apologies for where I was and I resumed driving. By the time I hung up the phone, I started cussing, then I passed the sign that said Kaneohe: 10 miles and I really dropped bombs.

Well, atleast she didn't call back and said that there was something wrong with the computer.

I quite agree with the both of you!. I remember one day, when I was in the rest room, that the restoorm itself didn't even have a soap at all, eww!. What?! running water will clean our hands?!. I think not!.

Thank Goodness I also carry that small bottle of hand santizer, just for emergencies when there is NO soap at all!!.

I also have seen the filthiest restroom, & just being there makes my skin crawl & sends shivers down my spine!!. EWWW!.

Where are those clean up crew, when you need them most!!. GAWD!!.

What PISSES ME OFF the most is....

IDIOTIC PEOPLE!!. People like them (which I guess have no brains at all to think with!!.), Talking SO DAMN LOUD at 5 am around & close to apartments that consist of only 6-8 apartments, when those 2 people know (or maybe don't know ) that we are all still asleep!!. How friggin RUDE is that?!! when we all can hear them talk when they should have been more considerate!!.

GAWD!!.

A bunch of D***K W**S!!. & A** H***S!!.

Maybe you should have an answering machine that states that,
& have the ringer off until you wake up.

I.E. (for your messages in your answering machine) "Hello, I'm un availabe to answer your call at this time, so please do call back any time between 9 - 7 or leave a message & I'll return your call as soon as I can. Thank you & Have a good day & evening"

~OR~ "Hello I'm sorry, I'm un available to answer your call between
8 PM - 8 am, so please do call back at a later time or leave a message & I will return your call as soon as I can".

Hope that helps.

Aloha.

Fun thread!

Yeah, people that talk too loudly when returning very late, it's this not even taking into account the common courtesies, the things which seem so obvious, that's a good one.

About washing your hands, and being told you should when you were about to, LOL. I know that feeling, too. I carry those little moist wipes, but careful if you drop one, you can sure get some weird looks cuz they are the same size as an individually wrapped condom, LOL.

Sorry, my buddy m - I don't stand alongside you on this one.

You need to see some footage of the microscopic beasties that travel on your hands after you urinate - then imagine someone else's beasties on the restroom door handle, now transferred to your hands, now to that sandwich you are having for lunch, now to your mouth and your intestinal tract...urp!

And as Serenity pointed out, water alone does little to remove them from your skin. Hot water & soap. If the sinks are gross, use hand sanitizer AFTER the hot water & soap - sanitizer alone is better than nothing, but still not as effective as using soap.

Some random and (probably really lame) things that piss me off:

- When someone takes up two parking spots or parks way over the painted lines in tight spots like Ala Moana or anywhere in Waikiki. Basically, it sparks a trickle-down effect where you now have to park over the line to fit into your spot, then the next car has to do the same, etc.

- When a kid pushes over one of my daughters in the playground, and the parent doesn't do anything about it.

- When I'm watching a great movie at the theater and have to go shi-shi really bad.

- When I dawn-patrol and can see the waves are firing, then realize I forgot my boardshorts.

- When I burn my microwave popcorn.

- When I realize too late that they got my drive-thru order wrong.

Back when I was with Hawaiian Telcom, we started our shifts at 8am, and we gotta atleast make the attempt to call the person. I never had one person say that we can call them back later in the morning or afternoon. Plus, usually people are getting ready for work, so we can catch them and either confirm the problem is gone, or schedule a time to call back.


And I just hate transferring files from hard drive to hard drive. This time, the transfer will take almost two hours - which I don't have time (I get out at 3pm). I just hope that the terabyte hard drives won't be this slow.

That reminds me of people who "tries to catch us at home"...

I hate people who tries to catch us when we are getting ready to do something, like eat dinner, heading out etc...
just so that they can sell us sh!t over the phone, & just agree to anything without considering what is being offered to just to get them off the hook when we are getting ready to do something!!.

Thank God We got that Call block, caller ID thing on our phone.

In order to get through to us (on our land line), : when you call direct, you have to state a name &/or a company name, or dial: *82 - plus 7 digit number to just get through.

So either way, they are caught if it is a prank call or some lame company trying to sell us nothing but crap!!.

That definately helped us a lot in the loooong run.

We haven't had any lame people or company call us, other than who we want to call us back.

Thankgooness for modern technology. Woo Hoo!!. =)

Aloha. =)

I'm not sure when the last time you came to Oahu Leo... but the next time.... if you have a chance, go check out a males public bathroom at Ala Moana Park (believe me... you don't want to touch anything in the bathroom and there is no doors so you don't have to worry about grabbing a handle) and/or for that matter... also, if you get a chance, check Ala Moana malls bathrooms. They are so heavily used that too me... that they are disgusting!
If it's a clean bathroom and I know that it gets cleaned regularly... I would have no problem washing my hands... however, some of the bathrooms I've seen have really tripped me out...(Well just as bad as some of the camp grounds in Washington I guess to make a comparison)

(anyone in Hilo ever tried to use the public bathroom at the boat ramps by the bridge at Waiola???? there like the only public bathrooms available after 5 at nights...and I wouldn't touch anything there)

I really feel even more sorry for the ladies on this very subject...

But hey...it's not like we all don't go to the bathroom!

UPDATE: What really pisses me off... Is I'm all settled in to watch my DVR recording of Lost...avoiding all Lost related posts today... and Just as I'm nice and ready to watch it... I hit my list of recorded programs....and see that Dances w/ the stars over rid the lost program!!!! Time for BitTorrent!!! I swear I thought I had DWTS off of my record list!!! I hate that show....Especially now!

(technically, a few to some of it that I/we posted, is not all about being "pissed off", too. =) )

But then again....

Manoasurfer & doc1456

Then bliss turns to sheer horror as you begin to smell the slight scent of something burning wafting from the oven vent. But before you can stop the process, it's too late, the core of the popcorn bag has become POPCORN HELL and the carbonized popcorn in the middle has tainted the whole bag and you sit in disgust as you sift thru the smokey ruin and try to taste what you savored seconds ago.


That's almost as pathetic as when I saw this one harried woman with her bags of goods purchased at Ala Moana Shopping center back in the 70's. Woolworths (right next to Longs Drugs) had just sold her a bowl of S&S saimin and she was gingerly walking to a concrete bench to savor her lunch. As she began to sit, she lost her balance and the whole bowl of saimin plopped to the pavement.

After all that effort she lost her lunch and she looked totally disgusted especially since most of it fell on her high heels
