2. Buy another tube of toothpaste and label it for your exclusive use.



That would just create a new problem as she would ask why we need two tubes of toothpaste. Much safer to not even address the problem.

Would she notice and care if the cap was gone/missing?

If so, steal the cap a few times and when she asks about it say you don't know perhaps I'm forgetting to put it on and it's getting lost. She might make sure she puts it back on herself.

I know how to wash clothes properly, load the dishwasher, and put stuff away correctly, however, my wife doesn't think so, or at least she thinks I won't do it properly, therefore, she forbids me from doing those things.

That is why I am NOT married. I can do what I want when I want without any GUILT.

Places like Boston Market & KFC selling "Family Meals" but forcing you to take the sides THEY choose and only allowing you the choice of 1 out of 3 sides!

I realize it's a gimmick to move menu items that don't sell, but seriously when you force people to take "common sides" like Mashed Potatoes & Stuffing instead of choosing it themselves, it just reeks of poor service. And when you ask nicely to change something, the rebuttal is always "Yea, but it'll cost you extra!" is just absurd.

I don't know if newer cars are coming out with brighter headlights or more people are changing out their stock headlights for extra bright. I was already annoyed with raised vehicles whose headlights shine too high.

Also if you come up behind me with super bright headlights I won't get out of your way. I will get out of the way of someone with respectable headlight manners.
Fair is fair, if unprovable claims are insisted to be true, one should be able to use unprovable methods of debunking.

You shouldn't be in the right lane unless you are passing, It's a courtesy to move aside for faster traffic.

Right or left?

Snowing something awful up on the plains right now.
Abundance of caution and all that, but if you can't go at least half the speed limit, your trip should probably wait until the weather is nicer.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I think you mean left, but no worries. Driving too slow in the left lane annoys me also.

Woke up this morning with no running water. Despite wrapping my hose with pipe insulation, the water filter froze up. PITA. I had to disconnect everything and let it sit in the Sun for a few hours. In spite of having the "Artic Insulation" package, it was cold last night.
It's a learning experience, but I think I will avoid extended cold weather.

Now that you mentioned it, another thing that annoys me is when people can see that it is bumper to bumper traffic and want to pass even though they can only get one space ahead of me.

i'm leaving that space in bumper-to-bumper traffic to not drive an unsafe distance from the car in front of me, not for someone to take it.

Pet peeve that someone here may have experience with.

I booked a room at 4 Queens. Person on the phone said room was comped (I received a postcard for 2 nights free). But the Confirmation email identifies a price. I point this out and she says donít worry about that, we have you in the system as comped. I asked for some confirmation in email that the room is comped and they didnít provide one. I donít want to get to the front desk and have them say itís not comped. I did call back and another person did say he could see it was in as a comp. Still, Iíd really like for the confirmation email to say comp. Or at least exclude the price (which is what Iíve seen before).

2 nights at 4Q. Midweek youíre probably talking $79.98 total ?
Itís all about making that GTA
