100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Day 100 of 100 Days Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Done for another year dudes and dudettes, and what a day to end my dissatisfaction posts!

Our government finally delivered on an “important” electoral promise, and looking forward to increased revenue due to higher Doritos sales, peace and love to flow through our land, and a new and healthy outlook on life

Peace out…

Btw look for the new Canadian flag to be unfurled just before the next election

Editorial Note (via wifey comment): I will miss the grow op homes on my street

Day 99b of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- the night before the end of the 2018 Edition

Looks like neighbour is taking a first stab at rebuilding his fence by reproducing a replica of Hadrian’s Wall

 

Day 99a of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Think this is snow? Remember, we are in late June. This allergy sufferers worst nightmare

Day 98 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

This innocent looking cat could move a couple of steps forward and take down the rest of my neighbour’s fence, thereby removing all hope that he can salvage any of the rotting wood to rebuild the section that already fell last year.

Cat didn’t bother, fence still stands #passiveaggressivesuburbanite

Day 97 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction-2018 Edition

The Washington Nationals are finishing a game that got suspended May 15th mid way through. In “today’s “ game, Adam Easton got a pinch hit 5 Days after his ankle surgery, and 19 year old sensation,Juan Soto,did not make his major league debut until 5 days after. But his debut result, below, was the same, uniting my confused time lapse.

Day 96 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Read that a project to widen 417 will see Carling/Kirkwood e/b off-ramp closed starting Monday. Good that they are addressing the area where slowdowns most occur for commuters. But really won’t fix the problem as you can’t change the habits of bad drivers who always slow down on gradual uphill ramp in that area

Day 95 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Jeff Sessions quoted the Bible to defend his government’s point of view..words to the effect of “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established, The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”

I am no theologian, nor pretend to be, but the next paragraph says “Love your neighbor as yourself. Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” That’s a head scratcher as children are being separated from their familes.

But actually, the Bible can serve politics quite well and with no confusion. Dougie Ford is offering beer at a dollar, and will have to likely slash social services to do that. Surprised he has not defended his point of view, like Sessions, with the Bible:

“Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish!” – Proverbs 31:6 Sounds like a good remedy for the problem.

Day 94 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction-2018 Edition

love it when wifey also has dissatisfaction posts, though her’s are cuter

“Oh my word! I just watched this cute little bunny go up to my flowering campanula and eat all the buds off it. I am so making bunny burgers for supper!”

Day 93 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Is it my imagination, or does the 3$ more expensive Harvey’s Angus burger taste the same as their regular burger?

Day 92 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction -2018 Edition

I got a certificate of appreciation today, in an email to all staff with a link to a document to print. Efficiently generic with no personalized names on it, and saved money by not putting them in envelopes (now I have to find a frame at the dollar store to go with last years)

Day 91 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Facebook told me to check out my memories. They are all previous years’ dissatisfaction posts!

Day 90 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction -2018 Edition

After stressing a bit over the election results, I reflected on two key Conservative platforms –

repeal sex education and offer $1 beer – and relaxed. What could possibly go wrong?

Day 89 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

You know you are out of shape when you can’t outrun a doggie parade.

 

Day whatever of my 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Time to watch who won the “vote for the devil you know vs the devil you don’t know to well vs the devil you don’t want to know” election

After I do my groceries

 

Day 87 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2017 Edition
Ontario Provincial Elections voting day today. I get – in some way – politics, like religion, is based on belief. Like religion, political allegiance can be rooted in tradition – like “my Grandad bought a Chrysler, my Dad bought a Chrysler, so I, too, will buy a Chrysler.” Does not matter if Chryslers are bad cars, the allegiance to the brand and family is what matters.

Today, we have a choice of three vehicles – all known for a very high breakdown rate – a Chrysler, a Fiat, and a Mitsubishi

If you had to choose one of these cars, you may base the choice on what looks nicest to you, but you know that they will breakdown, and often – like our political parties.

It is one reason why I take the bus.

Happy election day Ontario! : )

Day 86 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Starbucks app is really great, especially if you want to pre-order your items and just pick them up at the counter of your local store.

Too bad the app tells me that a coffee with milk is not available at my store.

Day 85 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction -2018 Edition

it occurred to me that the electoral promise of the price of beer being less than a liter of gas should be extended to coffee as well, though I fear the price of Timmies may have to go up to compensate for the beer….

Day 84 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Living in a day where freedom of expression is an important value, I am hearing more children screaming in the grocery store than I ever have before (my Mum often told me this is something that just would not be permitted 40 years ago)

In fact, today I even heard a father encourage his daughters to scream as loud as possible at the store…Bruce grabs his items and exits fast!

Day 83 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

This is an “I love you” gift from a spouse when one is over 50…

Rinds can make a new hat?

Day 82 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

I don’t get political too often , but Wow! What a ploy. “We’re not going to win; so, vote Liberal.” What? Everyone voted Liberal? Another majority? How’d that happen?

#pipedream

Day 81 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition
Is there something wrong with me? Each time I watch an episode of DeGrassi, I have to counter it with Breaking Bad or Dexter..

Day 80 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition
Insta-banks now let you withdraw cash in a variety of denominations, not just 20s.

Today I withdrew 200 dollars. Only option I had was 5s…

Day 79 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Got stoked to go to the gym before work this morning, so much so, I woke up fully charged at 330 am!

Day 78 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Lilacs should be outlawed

#seasonalallergies

Day 77 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Happy to eat at a restaurant that offered vegetarian and gluten free options. The vegetarian was a Cesar Salad with chickpeas instead of chicken. Nice! My friend ordered it and it looked great, except for the bacon bits in it.

Day 76 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

I do what is good for the environment, and not my health, by taking the bus each day to work.

As there is no longer such thing as “public” parking in Gatineau, even on days where I would take the car to work, I cant – like on days when I have band practice and have to bring in my equipment.

Basses are pretty big to bring on a bus. I got a seat in the front and placed the bass case between my legs. Most people used it as an armrest, while standing, a support to propel themselves to the back of the bus, or an object to express frustration by pushing hard into it while smashing my knee.

Did not realize my bass would offer a community service.

Day 75 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Looking for adult space, go to local Starbucks, which was empty when I got there. Within 5 minutes, a monsoon of people come in with screaming children and smoking cigarettes to consume my quiet bliss and fresh air

Day 74 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

“It” sucks

Day 73 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Grateful to have received my first Christmas card of the year – very close to the first day of spring. Always inspired by those who don’t procrastinate and take the time to write . ; )

Day 72 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

At a conference, left my hotel room to get a coffee at a local Starbucks. Got it and came back in. Took the elevator to the 5th floor and tried to get into room 515. Key did not work.

After several tries, I realized that my room is on the 12th floor. (5th floor is my office at work…)

Day 71 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Am on a business trip and got a middle seat on my flight. I cursed as I am tal and have a hard time fitting in these seats. I joked with my colleagues that I wanted to experience the full glory or economy class.

I did. The woman beside me was over 6 feet and and needed a third of my seat. The man To my right at least could put the arm rest down. They both slept and snored the whole flight while I hunched over in my seat.

The flight was short and the stewardesses could only serve half the cabin drinks. I was in the back half. They did throw me some cookies as they put their cart away. I would have been happy with Oreos, but they were “bran” biscuits.

Day 70 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Irony. I am waiting over an hour to Get my allergy shot today, and they permit someone to bring a small lap dog in the medical clinic.

Glad I am just allergic to anything that is green and grows.

Day 69 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 edition

Stoked to help at Comicon and taking a vacation day for it. Reminded by colleague, though, that I am not entirely escaping the office this weekend

 

Day 68 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

My brain just got lobotomized thanks to Apple Music – and I warn you – DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. I was head banging along to Ozzie’s Bark at the Moon only to have that song followed by Olivia Newton-John’s Xanadu!

Don’t know how long it will take me to recover from the shock.

Day 67 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Spring is here and people are leaving their burrows to go play in the garden. One man I saw while walking is trying to raise the suburban lawn standards another notch.

He was on all fours with face about one inch from the ground. I thought he lost a contact lens, but saw him pull a very long and thin looking weed. I got home and stared at my weed infested jungle and went in to watch TV

Day 66 Of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Sad state the music industry is I. where guitar gods are no more. RIP Gibson, death by AIs and recording loops

 

Day 65 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Packed bus, had to balance awkwardly between two people as I had nothing to hold and no free hand to read on my phone . Luckily, I had some in-bus entertainment. A woman standing near me held an iPad, reading a story in a very large font . It caught my eye and it started to lookes like a mystery story. Ten minutes later, it evolved to cheap porn with poor grammar. Bored I saw another guy reading Breitbart online. No win. Stared into space for most of the ride

Day 64 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction-2018 Edition (for earlier this week)

Ever try to find parking in Gatineau when the main public parking lot is closed to the public? Need advice so I don’t have to drive/walk for miles

Day 63 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Sign at the doctor’s office says that I need to make an appointment 2 weeks in advance for prescription renewals to ensure I can keep popping my pills. Figuring I have about 3 weeks left to go, I thought it a good idea to make an appointment. Found out he is only taking patients in 6 weeks. What’s up with that?

Day 62 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction 2018 Edition

At Starbucks drive-through, car ahead of me had two large dogs, getting quite excited to see the teller. They stuck their noses out of a partially open window tails wagging frantically. The barista gave the owner an extra coffee cup which he immediately gave to his dogs to lap up. Hyper dogs on free coffee can’t be a good thing.

Day 61 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Maple Leafs…again

Day 60 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Yup, a headhunter tried to recruit me for a job I did over 25 years ago…

Day 59 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition.

Sad to see curling season end. At our end of year bonspiel, saw this great display. Looks great, but the can tasted a bit rusty

Day 58 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition.

Half the neighbours fence has fallen, now the other is starting to find its way to the ground.

Day 57 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Ever use liquid Tide in these horrible containers? I get more soap on my counter than I do in the laundry!

Day 56 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction-2018 Edition

Seeing the Illusionist today at the NAC. Noticed a gentleman taking a selfie in a public washroom with a backdrop of urinals. Hmmm…

Day 55 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction-2018 Edition

Decided to drive to work thinking it would be faster so I can arrive on time for a meeting. Ended up being 15 minutes longer and I was late

Day 54 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Ever leave coffee on your desk overnight in the cup, and think it’s your Timmy’s the next day, only to discover it is stone cold and rather rough to drink?

Day 53 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Love people thinking of good health and running, but is there any benefit to run when you can walk faster?

Day 52 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Why is Stormy Daniels the only thing that is newsworthy on TV?

Day 51 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

I have found I have been pouring beer the wrong way for decades…got to up my beer game!

Day 50 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Doing taxes.

Day 49 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition. For Friday

Three busses, three women, each carrying Tupperware containing stacks of cupcakes.

I was not offered any

Day 48 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

The Stupidstore updates its self-checkout software so you don’t bugged by the “Please put the item in the bag “ every time you scan something. Now if only someone would respond when I press Call Attendant.

Day 47 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition.

CJOH top 3 news stories in reverse order order today

– man blogging his last days on earth
– furniture store not giving deposits back to customers after it closed its doors yesterday
– Doug Ford wants to privatize pot

#inspirational

Day 46 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition.

When my feet get wet in winter, I get upset. Can’t imagine the degree of distress someone must be in having to walk in the slush with no bootie on.

Day 45 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition. The party that earns my vote will be the one that bans Daylight Savings Time.

Day 44 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

I am not the first to make a joke about the Ontario PCs trying to HASH out the results, right? Gosh Ontario politics CRACK me up!

Who says Canada is not like the States?

Day 43 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Walked outside for lunch today and found a Scotiabank bank card on the street. It happened to be right outside of the bank. I figured I’d better drop it off with someone in the bank, hoping someone may claim it. I noted two people sitting on the sidewalk against the wall outside the bank. They looked like homeless teens/early-twenties.

I gave the card to the receptionist at the bank who thanked us and as we left the door said it belonged to the street sitters, who got up to leave as we passed them.

If she knew that the bank card we picked up belonged to the street sitters, why didn’t she just give it to them, or let them know that they dropped it?

Day 42 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

I may have made comment about my grocery store (which I call the Stupid Store) and how they never had potatoes a year ago. At that time, I received a survey from the store asking how my visit went, and I complained there were no potatoes. Since then, I never saw the store without any! I am was in potato heaven…until tonight.

They had all the types of spuds except the type I usually get…

Day 41 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Why is it something I purchased from Amazon for $25 is only worth $6 according to the shipping label for insurance purposes?

Day 40 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

With all the modern advances in technology in our society, people are still getting colds and flu. Went to three walk-in clinics yesterday, all not accepting patients an hour after opening. Everyone inside wore masks! Then I see this video on the Web. I guess I understand the priorities for tech investment ; )

Went home and tried to work on my book, whose chapters will be greatly influenced by the effects of excessive Advil Cold and Sinus.

Day 39 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Facebook use to tell me how many interactions I got each week. It doesn’t anymore. Is it telling me something in a passive way? ; )

Day 38 of 100 Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition. U2 is one of my favourite bands. Reminded today that their War album, the record that introduced me to the band, was released on this day 35 years ago. Let that sink in…THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO!!

Day 37 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

My wakeup tune this morning on my iPod was Happy, by Pharrell Williams. Wifey said that was the most ironic song that someone like me would play first thing in the morning.

Day 36 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Took a vacation day off from work to crash and unwind, and my neighbour has contractors starting work today that has lots of electric saws and hammering going down.

Day 35 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Went to Costco today. Staff were friendly and one wished me Happy Family Day for tomorrow.

I work in Gatineau, not Ottawa…

Day 34 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Went to see Les Miserables today. Uplifting

Day 33 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Nothing says I love you more, this Valentine’s Eve, than buying a bunch of flowers from the grocery store. There were so many flowers in the store, but no fresh fruit or vegetable. Hard to boil a lily.

Day 32 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

A young child was banging chairs, basically making a nuisance of itself at the doctor’s office. Mom says, “We are not going out for treats if you continue doing that.” Child screams, “I don’t want treats!” and continues banging all the chairs, to everyone’s dismay.

Poor kid. Not even the incentive of treats made his trip to the doctor’s worthwhile. Poor adults, who wish the kid just stayed home.

Day 31 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Curling time ends at 5 pm. But the games are normally wrapped up by 4:45 pm. The horn goes off early in the arena to signal us off the ice so it can be prepared for the next game.

Today, at 4:45, we were winning the game, and no horn goes off, so no games to follow us. The skips decide to play one more end. We lose.

Drove home after in the freezing rain.

Day 30 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Jeffrey Loria, the man who ultimately was responsible for getting the Expos out of Montreal, is applying the same business strategy to the Miami Marlins, He continuously dumps off star players and wonders why fans don’t come to his teams games (and they have a nice looking new stadium)

He has found a new and exciting way to motivate fans to buy tickets, Marlins are refusing to give the price of tickets this season until people arrive at the stadium today to actually buy them.

Day 29 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

Ever look back at some old pictures of yourself? I like the nostalgia, but today I got hit with a bomb that I was completely clueless with what I chose to wear.

Case in point, today I looked for a picture of my first guitar. Found one not only my first guitar but also my first “show”.

Here is me looking oh so ZZ-top playing Sharp Dressed Man. My bandmates knew how to look rock n roll. Kudos to them!

Day 28 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

What could be more satisfying than having a day of drinking nothing but Gatorade and sipping back fine Chicken Broth?

Day 27 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition. Bruno Mars is making a bold petition to bring hip hop and rap to the Super Bowl half time show next year…

What about bringing back straightforward rock?

Day 26 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Ever get sent to data jail? You know, when you go over or near your cell phone limit and you turn the data off so that you don’t get additional charges?

I happened to be in data jail, and released today. I turned on my cellphone data and somehow used 140 MB in one day. 70MB is “system” cell data, including, but not limited to, “location services”. I guess I must have a lot of data to track, commuting from Kanata to Gatineau in an OCTranspo 40 foot trashcan.

Day 25 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Great day. Won at curling and Pats lost

But

Brady did not retire right after game

Day 24 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Hey everyone, it’s National Ice Cream Day for Breakfast Day! Put on your parka and long johns, and go out to your local ice cream parlor and celebrate!! (Only -19 when I woke up)

https://www.facebook.com/events/140160150013198/

Day 23 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction -2018 Edition

Reported a cracked window in my office earlier this week. Liked the repair job done while I was in meetings.

Btw building owners made us take down are post-it note cartoons from the windows as they threatened to cause problems with the heating. At least duct tape should not cause the same problem.

Day 22 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

I just remembered the Super Bowl will happen this Sunday. I guess I forgot because the Patriots are in it again #yawn

Day 21 0f 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

I record CJOH 6 pm news, for the occasional day I would like to connect with the goings on of our community. Today, after a long day at the office, I figured turn it on to give me a different headspace. The stories tend to be benign in nature like someone lost a pet cat who survived several weeks in the winter outdoors or something about ice sculpting. Tonight featured full video coverage of someone being shot in the head in a courthouse.

Not relaxing, and quite sad..

Day 20 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Played a game on my cell called 2048 for over two hours on the bus today. Got hooked on a game that involved me swishing my finger mindlessly across the screen for no apparent reason.

Time I won’t get back. And may have lost some hair in the process

Day 19 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

OCTranspo seems to be attempting to conserve electricity on their bus signs. My 269 today did not have any indication of bus number, except the bus driver who had a handwritten 269 that he held for passengers coming on the bus.

I almost missed it because I could not read his sign through the door
as he passed by.

Day 18 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Was reminded that 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Canadiens winning the Stanley Cup! 25 years! We are sounding more like the Maple Leafs!

Day 17 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction

A great day for bargains! Gluten Free bread happened to be on sale, which gave my wallet a welcome relief as with the discount, it only cost 205% more than a regular loaf of bread.

Day 16 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition.

Today, I felt more energetic than I had all week as I am recovering from a cold. Today my sinuses did not run. This afternoon, in a meeting, I felt a tickle in my throat and I could not stop coughing. I had to bolt out of the room to the bathroom, and |I guess the remnants of my cold came up from my lungs.

Yuck.

Day 15 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition. This may be a 2 for 1 day.

Went to the pharmacy to get some Advil and Tylenol (much needed) and proceeded to the cashier where I had a choice of two lines. One line had three people, the other had an elderly couple in the process of being served. Law of averages, the line with one person typically moves faster so I moved towards the one with the couple.

As I approached to take the much coveted #2 spot in line, I was aggressively cut off by an unshaven young man wearing sweatpants and a baseball cap. He was standing at the end of the other line.figuring he’d cut in front of me as my line had a smaller lineup.

The old couple in the front of my line was heavily engaged with the cashier about points, coupons, price checks, looking for change, flyers, and the weather that the line did not move – but I noticed the other line moved so I went to the other line and got served before the man who cut me off. WIN! SATISFACTION! He was standing waiting for the couple to finish their discussion with the cashier as I walked chipperly out of the store!

Part 2 of the story. There was an older woman ahead of me in the line that I moved to. She was large, and about my height, but qualified for a seniors discount as she, too, was trying to save on every penny she could. She saw packages of “pork jerky” for sale at the cash and took advantage of a 3 for 5$ special offered to her, she bought 6 packs. My turn came up, I passed through the cash quickly with my two purchase items and was given the same pork jerky offer. Without thinking, and perhaps reflecting on how my doctor said I should lose weight, said “No thanks, I have to watch my waistline” The large woman ahead of me scowled and gave me dirty looks, I did not mean to disappoint someone because I don’t like or want pork jerky!

As I left the store, I noted that the old couple continuing their discussion with the cashier on the other side, and the queue grew to several people there, including unshaven man, trapped in lineup purgatory.

Day 14 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Doctor told me today I have to lose 6 cm off my waste. Well, here is day 1 of my new diet!

 

Day 13 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition (for wifey).

Saw a great sign on a back window of a car:

Utext
Udrive
Udie

Great slogan. Too bad the message covered half the back window, which minimizes the vision of the driver, which could kill him too!

Day 12 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction-2018 Edition. Today is National Hugging Day. I think everyone I knew missed the memo. I did not get a hug. Instead, I got a cold   : )

Day 11 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction- 2018 Edition

Went to get some gas and saw there was no lineup for the car wash so we purchased a wash. By the time I finished pumping my gas, 7 cars were in line for the car wash. The station had been completely vacant!

Day 10 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

For some reason, my Google music streaming service is playing Puff the Magic Dragon!

One of the first songs I remember listening to as a kid! Where on earth did Google AI find that piece of info on me?

BTW: I know asked before, but what is your first song you remember hearing as a kid?

Day 9 of 10 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Those of you who own Starbucks Gold Cards know all about “chasing stars”. You buy a certain amount of coffee, food, etc., you obtain stars. You get enough stars, you get free coffee, food, etc.

Also, they encourage you to buy coffee, food, etc. by having special promotions that effectively make you burn a hole through your wallet to get a free drink. You buy three sandwiches in a week, you get a free 12 dollar coffee (or that is what my free drink costs).

What I learned today, I have been buying food from a Starbucks that does not participate in these promotions. I never got stars from the promotions I participated in. Writing a letter of complaint now, lol.

Day 8 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

I have never been a fan of pop music in this new millennium, but I have watched two episodes of the Launch, and like what they are doing. A famous song writer/producer writes a song, then looks for the right voice for it among contestants. The winner has the song launched on radio the next day with their voice. Great idea.

I liked the hook of the first song last week, and I am not sure if it’s my age, the state of pop music, or my lack of liking the style, but after the launch of the second artist this week, I have now completely forgotten the first song.

Day 7 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

You know those batteries used in Apple TV remotes? The ones that are quarter sized CR2032…well it has been two weeks since I have gone to the store meaning to replace it with a new one and it’s two weeks I have come home, put everything away, sat down to watch tv only to realize that the remote does not work.

Day 6 of 100 Days of Dissatisfaction – 2018 Edition

Went to the dentist today, and my oral hygienist offered to give me a free toothbrush and floss, which I happily accepted. She gave me 3 packages of floss. I am not sure if this is intended to be a subtle message or just an act of kindness.
