What pisses you off?


I'll tell you what royally pisses me off. 


It is the crappy outdated Web Wiz software this forum uses.


I am soooooo sick of going through the often times lengthy and time consuming effort of composing a post, which can involve inserting pics or a video or using some text enhancement feature, then editing my wording, correcting spelling errors and typos, etc, etc, etc, only to hit the Post Reply button and get this bullsh*t....




The worst thing about it is that there is absolutely no built in auto-save feature like most other forum software has, that allows you to use your browser's back button to get everything you lost back again.

I've been trying to train myself to always, with every post, select everything, do a cut, then paste it all back in prior to hitting Post Reply so if that idiot Web Wiz genie decides to pull his sh*t again, I can paste it all back into a new, refreshed post field.

Of course, the only time it pulls this sh*t is whenever I forget to do the cut/paste.

I guess Web Wiz  is a good name for it though. The word "wiz" is often times used as a euphemism for PISS, and it sure does PISS me off.

(Better remember to do my cut/paste before I hit the Post Reply button.... Ermm)

Yeah, that sucks.

When I'd occasionally lose some lengthy, elaborate post, I'd usually just say "F*ck it. It wasn't meant to be". I was really just being too lazy to do the whole thing over.

Same here.

I had replied to a post by aka ron and forgot to cut/paste it first.

Got the stupid yellow death message and said f**k it.

Maybe I'll do it again later when I feel more like it.

And less disgusted.

I'm beginning to think I may have made a big mistake.

The realtor said the place has Cable service, it was on the spec sheet.  I call Spectrum and they don't have the address in their records!

The current owners have STILL not mowed the grass.

I wonder what the consequences are if I back out of the deal, the loss of my earnest money?  It may be worth it.  Christine was giving me the cold shoulder once I started asking questions and wanted her to show it to me again.

I sent an email to the listing agent...Hoping to get some answers.

I guess I could get Sat. TV and Internet.  I could have someone install an outdoor antenna.  No wonder my gut hurts!

They probably meant that cable was available, not installed already.  You can always back out of a real estate deal but you'll lose your earnest money unless you can prove willful misrepresentation.  But if my realtor/agent gave me "the cold shoulder" just because I started making a few waves, I'd go straight to her broker to resolve the problem.  Contacting the seller's agent isn't really a good idea.

The road sucks!  I talked to an old guy back there today. He has lived back there for 60 years.  Do you have cable?  He said some of the people have Sat. TV.

This is turning into a crap fest, I may have to back out.

Go with your gut.  You might lose some $$$, but better than losing the whole amount later if/when other problems crop up...

p.s. Don't take financial advice from me...

The listing agent was really quite nice.

Kevin,

    There is an antenna on the home and a dish is the other possibility.  I use an antenna at my house in Oshkosh and get 26 local local channels.  Then use internet for other shows.  I requested that the lawn be mowed at the time I presented the offer.  The seller was going to have his son cut the lawn.  The son is not the most reliable person but I will keep on them. 

  Just an FYI Christine told me 9:30 on the 29th for the closing.  But Title company sent me an email saying that 10am was closing time.  Just want to clear up time.


I called Spectrum and they do not service this little dead end road, I'm guessing there is 8 or 10 homes/cottages back there.

IMHO, you're probably just getting a typical case of cold feet.

No place is going to be perfect or meet every little expectation and you'll get used to whichever little inconveniences that may present themselves. The main things to think about are.... 

How do you feel in the place? 

Do you like the surroundings? 

Do you like the way the place looks and feels inside? 

Do you think you'd feel at home there?

Do you think you'd enjoy hanging out in the yard and in the living room? 

Is the price affordable and easy on your finances?

The cable issue is nothing. Get an antenna or a dish or both.

BFD.

Stop making mountains out of molehills.

What he said.  Wink  Also, it looks like you're pretty close to the river.  Were you required to get flood insurance?  I would think so, but if not, you might want to consider it.

The wife was here today with my mail, her new phone was at the local post office too.

She bought some living room furniture, that's okay!

She seemed so angry with me.  I'm not sure why.

We still have to share info from insurance to banking information.

She just wants to move on.

Women get so weird when they're leaving.

It's like they build up this inner hostility and resentment because of every little thing the guy did or they perceived him to have done.... and in some cases, to have not done.

She later said that she is not mad at me.  She also said that this transition isn't really easy for her either.

I picture her with a new man, that hurts!

I heard a song once, I have no idea what the name of it is or who it's by, but there's a line in it that goes:

"man wants a woman, woman always gets a man".

Just a fact of life.

I don't know what caused you and your wife to split up, but sometimes the divorce process itself will exacerbate any feelings of anger.  What seemed like a minor annoyance suddenly becomes a serious issue. 

Also, she could be hiding her stress and nervousness about suddenly being on her own and projecting that anxiety on to you.  If you're acting like you're getting on with your life without her and not having any problems, that, coupled with her own stress, could make her lash out.

And some people just keep conflict and squabbling going as a means of communication because they aren't ready to "let go".

Just my thoughts.  I'm sorry all this is happening and hope the support from your friends helps!
