Dear Uber,

It's raining, and I was at the supermarket around the corner from my home, with 4 heavy bags of groceries and an umbrella. Normally, I'd have no trouble just walking home with 2 bags in each hand. I do it ALL THE TIME. But it's raining, and I need one hand for the umbrella, which means carrying all 4 heavy bags with one hand. I am not sure I can do that, walk all the way home, and not end up in pain. So, I was willing to pay the price of an Uber to get me there.

Now, I don't mind sharing my ride with someone else for the slightly lower rate of $5 and some change you offered with Uber Pool, where the driver would pick them up first, swing by and pick me up, drop me off around the corner, then continue to the other passenger's destination. At least that would make the most sense to me, for how to do it. But you never informed me before I ordered an Uber Pool that I was going to have to walk halfway home to meet the driver, in the rain, carrying all 4 heavy bags in one hand, which I did not want to do, and that he was only going to drive me a distance equal to about 20 paces before dropping me off again, and making me walk the rest of the way home, in the rain, carrying those 4 heavy bags in one hand. What exactly was I paying for? If I could walk from where I was to the pick up point and from the drop off point to home, it would have been trivial for me to walk those extra 20 paces, instead of ordering an Uber and paying $5 and change for it. It certainly wouldn't be much more painful with 4 bags of groceries in one hand, nor would it have been much dryer, to walk those extra 20 paces. And so I cancelled, and you decided that you get to keep $1 of my money, because your new app UI failed to inform me of both the pick up and drop off points before I placed my order, forcing me to cancel after being informed of these facts and deciding it wasn't worth it to pay $5 and change, in fact it was ridiculous to pay that, to only go 20 paces in the middle of my short, painful, wet walk home. Fuck you Uber. Seriously, FUCK YOU! I have tons of space on my phone that I can fill up with all the apps of every competitor you have, and will ever have, and I am willing to even go as far as calling a shitty local taxi (which I hate doing) because at least I know I will be picked up at the supermarket and dropped off at my home, for around the same price you wanted to charge me for 20 paces in the middle of my walk home.

This was the first time I ever ordered an Uber Pool, which I do all the time, and was told they would not be picking me up where I was, nor dropping me off at my destination. I should have been informed of both the pick up and drop off points before I placed my order, If they want to change their Pool service to be like that, they need to inform riders of things like this, so they have the chance to change their minds and not get charged for a cancellation.

I need another oven. I can't fit 2 split acorn squash and 4 whole sweet potatoes in there with that turkey taking up all the space.

And this is why I have always resorted to using canned on Thanksgiving. But my daughter prefers the way I usually make them on non-holidays, baked, whole, with the skins on them.

When you tell your eye doctor that you are seeing double, and his very serious reply is "Well, close one eye," it's time to find a new eye doctor.

It's a good thing I don't have to commute to work by driving.

I am beginning to think that the stereotype of old people driving badly might have something to do with bad eye doctors telling them to drive with one eye closed.

Damn coil in my RTA is jumping between 1.62 ohms and 0.79 ohms, and it's a full tank, with the last of a really expensive and hard to get e-juice, so I really don't want to dump any of it to fix it. #VapeProblems

The humidity is so high here, right now, that it's making everything in my apartment feel damp, my carpet, bed, sofa, chairs, everything. Even my kitchen floor feels damp to the point that I can't walk around in my bare feet without them sticking to the floor.

My whole neighborhood smells like one big firepit and that smell makes me nervous as all hell. Do you know what it's like for a fire paranoid person to take a nap and wake up to a smell that you don't know if it's because the building is on fire?

It's really hard working on a project with someone who wants complete control but none of the actual work and many times is never actually in the building.

Recovering from some severe bronchitis with antibiotics, steroids, and an inhaler. 2018 is not starting off on the right foot. Also, I have had pain in my left abdomen under my left ribcage and lower since December 20th. It is not going away. A CAT Scan showed nothing wrong organ wise. I have gone to four physical therapy sessions with no improvement (working on the back and ribs). Wish I knew what was wrong. It's always there - mostly annoying, but sometimes with very sharp pains. Gah.

Comment

Ooof. I did that dance this time last year with the bronchitis, and wish you a very speedy recovery. I hope they're able to sort out that pain :(

Dear Wordpress developers, I am not using an outdated version of Firefox. I am using the most up to date version of Pale Moon, which is just as secure as the latest Firefox, and a lot more stable. You want me to "browse happy"? Stop misidentifying my browser and showing me erroneous messages. Get a clue!

WTF? I have to fill out a captcha to unsubscribe from a newsletter? Really? Is there some big problem with bots going around unsubscribing people from emails that they actually want to keep receiving?

Comment

I haven't seen a captcha for that before, but I've run into a lot of newsletters/mailing lists that make it as hard as possible to unsubscribe.

I have been on hold for the last 2 hours, listening to the same 30 second music clip, followed by 30 seconds of silence, followed by some BS about how important my call is and how I shouldn't hang up or it will further delay my call, over & over.

I hate when you put something somewhere, because it makes perfect sense, in the moment, but then the next day it doesn't make any sense at all, so now you can't find it. WHERE'S MY SCOTCH TAPE?

Dear Microsoft, Can I pay you to stop the bullshit? And if so, how much? I am sick of crap like OneDrive just running itself at random and other annoying bullshit, like this Skype ad. You are never going to get me to use things like OneDrive and Skype by shoving them down my throat. I'll use Skype when I need to, for work. And I'll use OneDrive when it's better for my needs, than a paid Dropbox account. Until then, leave me the fuck alone or let me pay for my OS, and then leave me the fuck alone.

Just had to MacGyver my spacebar with a couple of little rolled up strips of an air pillow insole, so it would stop skipping/sticking. Keyboard manufacturers need to come up with a better solution than a delicate metal wire held in place with tiny pieces of plastic.

Uber wouldn't let me have my own UberX ride, forced me to go with UberPool, and ended up making me share a ride with a Polish immigrant Neo-Nazi that was strung out on some sort of drugs (he admitted it) and kept going on about the evils of Jews, for my entire ride. :(

I am not entirely sure I want to report that, considering the ride was to my home, and I was dropped off first, meaning that he may now know where I live and I don't need to have to worry about my or my family's safety.

I did however send the driver a message thanking him for the ride and letting him know how sorry I was that he had to put up with that jerk in the back seat of his car.

K-cups that contain shit you'd never buy (or drink), if you really knew what it was, in advance, such as instant coffee. :(

Comment

Instant cappuccino is always going to include crap you don't want in your body. Doesn't matter whether it's a K-Cup or not.

 ‎· Mr. Noodle

The point is that instant coffee doesn't belong in a K-cup, because ground coffee works just fine and tastes so much better.

And the other point is that we should all read the ingredients before buying stuff, any stuff, lest we be fooled into buying things like insanely expensive instant coffee.

When your dry erase calendar, which begins the week with Monday, instead of Sunday, confuses the shit out of everybody, forcing you to break out your Dymo label maker to fix it.

gads. I made a vet appointment for Velcro recently, and their online appointment scheduler was like this. I kept picking unintended days.

@ellbeecee: It's not as bad when the weekends are clearly marked with a different background color on the columns, rather than relying solely on the labels at the top. And it's a universal problem, as for example, Europeans are just as easily confused when viewing calendars on US sites, because they are used to seeing the week begin with Monday.

Why is it that the only place I can find that sells a dark brown litter box of the type I need, that will fit in my bathroom, is in India and doesn't ship to the US? Don't people want the color of the litter box to match their décor? Or does everyone decorate only in beige and obnoxious colors?
