Ok so I didn't see any threads like this if I'm wrong forgive me.

This thread is simple, vent about what annoyed you today. It doesn't have to be anything major just something that you dealt with that you don't like. I'll start todays with;

What grinds my gears is when I turn my computer on and it decides this is a great time to do a system update or scan.

And as with any other thread keep forum rules in mind.

What grinds your gears? My wife's shifting. Just kidding. My wife's laptop. She doesn't use it that much. (it's a spare computer sitting around the house.) So any time I need to use it. I have to turn it on a couple of hours before I need it. Because of the lack of updates. My Main desk top computer is constantly on, and updated.

People that are too dumb or lazy to turn off their blinkers after a turn. They keep driving with it.

It grinds my gears that my power has went out 12 times in the last 3 months. Every time there's rain with wind or it gets above 95. And instead of addressing the real issue the company, IPL, keeps band aiding it. And the kicker is its only my side of the street whole rest of the neighborhood has power just my side of the street for the whole run of the neighborhood.

It grinds my gears that I don't have as much time to work on my 91 as I'd like too.

It grinds my gears that this nice coffee pot still let's coffee grounds in my coffee, and that this grocery can't stock the creamer I like.

It grinds my gears that when it rained a lot and knocked out my power the basement flooded and put out my pilot light on the water heater and it hit the thing that shuts off the gas when the pilot light goes out and its been drying for 2 days and won't light and I don't know jack about water heaters.

Ahhhhh.... this coffee is good though.

Drivers in Louisiana... they always go 10mph under the speed limit in the wrong lane and have to slow to 3.5 mph to take a turn...

people who have their wipers on full blast driving in the pouring rain... and their headlights are off.

and the fact that we have multiple picture threads for every topic in cherokee chat.

do we need 3 teenage/ high school jeep owner threads?

do we need 2 sticker threads?

do we need 6 stocker threads?
