Re: Annoying Trends.

People referring to those they don't know as 'bro' or 'dude'.

Don't call me 'bro' or 'dude'. Doing so makes you sound a bit less than bright...

You may not realize it, and I not in the least insulted if you call me 'bro' or 'dude', but you sound less than adequate referring to strangers in that manner.

Honestly, it doesn't cost much if when addressing others you're unfamiliar with as sir or ma'm.

Ah, unless you care to appear slow...

Re: Annoying Trends.

I took some kind of arthritis medication that was hailed as the greatest stuff since penecillan. It worked and bam, it was deemed poison. Lawsuits ensued.

I asked my PCP and he was obviously frightened, I would be some kind of litigious monster ready to rake him over the coals for prescribing this stuff for me. I'm not one of those types. I told him outright if it gave me cancer or what have you I woudln't cause him any grief about it.

Why wouldn't I?

He was doing the best with the information he had. He wasn't a doctor so he could hurt people for heavens sake.

This business of lawsuits because you can bring them is nonsense.

Most recent example: I stumbled while entering a bike shop for a bike repair. In the process (I didn't let the staff know, I really hurt my arm, it's a bruised mess) They in turn, stated they'd just moved into this facility and knew one had to step 'UP' to clear the floor and more than one customer had their foot caught on the entrance and had gone sprawling to the floor)

I'm still not going to sue.

They're great at bike mechanics, not very bright at litigiousness.

I mildly suggested a cheap can of orange paint on the steps or a watch your step sign... I think (I hope I 'wrong)

Re: Annoying Trends.

Those who don't become Bernie Madoff or one of his many clones, (calling Enron) go into car sales.

And, given the love of so-called bitcoins or crypto currency, one day I think it too will not be the same type of rip off of course, but another financial scandal in the making...

Wearing a baseball cap with the brim on sideways.

Whenever I see that I always think the poor guy, he's mentally retarded and I'm not being ugly.

I really see it that way.

Re: Annoying Trends.

oljames3,

I second that!

If it's used and someone wants a couple of bucks less than new, no thanks.

I'll buy new every time..

Re: Annoying Trends.

Scott B.,

Your post left me screaming with laughter.

Homers Dad reminds me of the most recent loony left antics.

Re: Annoying Trends.

Liberty,

Glad to see another self admitted curmudgeon venting.

Feels good don't it?

Count me in as contemptuous of 'man bun' coiffures too, especially when they carry a beaded man purse while declaring their strong enough in their masculinity to do so.

Buncha emasculated beta males who can't admit they're low in testosterone and high in estrogen, not that there's anything wrong with....baloney. There's plenty wrong with that...buncha wimps and their gender neutrality. Blech...

And they drink black & white mocha espresso swirly drinks of decadent dark and white chocolate mocha, with a strike of chocolaty sequins. Now there's a manly drink, eh?

Now, I gotta go to the range and listen to soothing strings of gunfire while drinking black boiled coffee and smoking cheap, Maduro cigars to rid me of my man bun disgust.
