Noncompliant patients who show up repeatedly in crisis. They wouldn't be returning every few months if they just *took their meds!* Argh!

Upselling, no matter what it is or who's doing it.

I have to do this at my job, and I hate it. I work at a gas station. People pretty much  know what they want and how much of it when they come in the door. There's no way around it because management can listen to the audio tapes and hear whether we are up selling or not.  :-\

This.  THIS drives me up the wall.  Seriously.  (Copied from my FB page)

Well, that was an awesome day... NOT.

My beautiful, beloved ute got smashed into by a driver today, who pulled out from the kerb straight into me. Spun the ute 180 degrees, right into the railway crossing fence. Back wheel smashed (point of impact), probably axle stuffed, almost all panels damaged. Unable to be driven - tilt-tray driver took the ute back to smash repairers.

Will be at least 3 weeks before anything can be done to repair mine. Depending on the assessor's report, may be written off.

 Truly - how does one NOT see a bright gold ute???
Look out...

Redsoil, darling, this is Oz. A country where people can drive along a perfectly straight road and crash into a road-train and claim "I didn't see it", and a magistrate believes them.
Good news! Your insurance company says they'll cover you. Unfortunately, they also say it will be with dirt.

As a driver of a repeatedly hit bright yellow car I have developed a theory, people see you and go 'oh pretty' combined with a tendency to go where they look (I know I did when learning). They can't admit this so they didn't see you. Then you have the drivers who are just oblivious to everything.

It's the same people who hit a stopped full size, transit style (flat front), neon yellow school bus with it's red flashing lights and stop sign and say they "didn't see it"...or firetruck, or ambulance, or police car with full lights and sirens.

When kids want you to see something so they shove it directly in front of your eyes, sometimes touching the end of your nose.  Thankfully my older two have learned this drives mom up the wall (I would refuse to look at it until they handed it to me politely) but the Youngest Pirate has taken up this habit of shoving something directly in front of my eyes and saying "LOOK!" and then throws a temper tantrum when I push his arm away so that I can properly see what I'm supposed to be looking at.

*sigh* Two year olds...

I suspect we're all sharing kids and husbands without knowing it. :)  Either the Time Turners didn't really get all destroyed or there are a lot more blue call boxes out there. ;)

No one has managed to hit the bright red mid-sized SUV I drive, but only because I have the ability and skills to go off road when needed. I have had to do that one too many times. For Mother's Day, I am getting flashing LED lights in all my side and corner marker lamps and a switch on the dash to activate them. Let's hope that helps.

I had a bright orange car, but it was a small compact. People seemed to gravitate towards hitting it--you would not believe the number of times I was almost backed in to. I refused to drive it in busy metro areas because I was afraid people wouldn't see it in their blind spots, and it was a light car too, so I feared being  bumped right off the road. It was extra great when the horn went out.

A coworker said to me this morning "Why are you here so early?".

I generally work 8-5, but I drop off DS at 7 and then drive straight here most days, so I am in 20-25 minutes early. Every day. She doesn't generally come out of her office in the morning, and I don't always walk to where her office is. It just annoyed me.

Posting to this forum from my tablet. I use the swipe-type keyboard on my tablet.  It's generally quite good about recognising the ends of words and putting in spaces without me having to use the spacebar. For some reason,  on EHell - not on my email, or any other forum,  or any text based app - it runs all the words together with no spaces.

I had to give a presentation to our satellite office in the UK this morning at 6 a.m. (noon their time) which meant I had to get up an hour earlier to get here on time. When I signed in to my e-mail, I had a message from the coordinator asking if they could push back the presentation time 20-30 minutes because they were in a meeting prior. I received it at 3:20 a.m. my time. :P
