[quote author=siamesecat2965 link=topic=75495.msg2863879#msg2863879 Add me to the group who doesn't need, and hates padding. I finally have found one style that fits, AND doesn't have padding. And I also use something called DIMRS, as I have, ahem, a rather annoying headlight issue. They're round silicone pads you put over the offending area, under your bra, and they really work well! They aren't meant to be worn sans bra, and are bit pricy, about $30 a pair, but I've had mine for several years now, and they last well. i prefer them to the adhesive thingys you stick on.

I use round cotton pads made for cosmetic use.  They can move around, so I check the mirror whenever I'm in the restroom.  The silicone ones sound interesting, though.

HA - I used to fold a half a tissue and use that!  I like the ones i use. you don't feel them at all, and they work.

My other driving pet peeve is people who get in the middle lane, and tootle along well below the speed limit. I get that you might not be comfortable driving the speed limit, esp when in some areas its 70, but please move to the right lane!  You're impedeing the flow of traffic!!!

In my area, it is better for slower traffic to be in the middle lane or lanes, since we have both exiting and entering traffic on the right and passing traffic in the left. Unfortunately, we don't have a minimum speed limit, but it generally works well.

I can see this; but I'm talking about on the interstate, when it can be several miles between exits, or there's a lot of room on the entrance and exit ramps.

People who won't let things go, and INSIST on telling you how their way is better, or step by step instructions for something that you've already told them you are not interested in. I was emailing with a friend, who is horribly guilty of this, and answered a simple question. She has since sent me no less than eight emails about how I could do this instead, when I've told her i'm not interested nor need to know how to do said thing. Now I'm just ignoring them all.

No matter how many times you assert it, I will not believe you are a love goddess or the hottest man alive because you made that your email address.

That you used such an address to apply for college concerns me.

Or a job.  I went to a seminar in 2001 about job hunting and a headhunter made this point.  She said "Do you think I will take you seriously if your e-mail address is vodkaqueen @ .......com?  I don't think so."

She took that one right out of my brain.

LOL!! That cracks me up!  Like people who try to tell you what a great partner they are or would be.  One guy I knew in college, when I was with DH, would tell me what a great bf he would be because he wanted me to talk him up to a mutual friend. 

I was too nice at the time, and too naive to say much either but oh man I wanted to say "Don't tell me, show her!"

This link did something that drives me crazy--a LOUD yammering commercial that started the second the website loaded up.  I'm at work web designer.  I don't want a loud commercial about bra straps echoing through my office!  I instantly closed the website and will never access it again, just because of the loud, annoying commercial.

This is why I keep the sound muted on all of my devices - except of course for the iPhone's ringing and alarm clock. If I do want to hear something, it is easy to turn the sound back on, and in the meantime I am not subjected to the constant beeps and chirps when the computer does something, and best of all, I miss all those horrible yammering commercials.

I also can't stand the sound games make when I play them. Even from my first Gameboy, I keep the sound off, and I've rarely missed an alert because they catch my eye.

I have adblock that block adds and flash disabled until I click on the video to ok it - whenever I have to use someone else computer the adds and sound drive me well, up the wall. You don't realise how much adds there is until you have to face them again. It didn't really bother me when I had them, I would just gloss over and not see them, but now I couldn't live without them blocked.
Adblock is 'free' (you can paypal whatever you wish,or nothing,  to support the team that created it) and installed in less than 10 sec on Chrome, but I bet there's plenty of other services.

I have been using it for years, and I am shocked by the number of ads that show when I use another device without it.

I used to surround myself with people like this.  Occasionally I think, "Oh no.  I probably just had a bad attitude and just perceived everyone as bossy."  And then I remember that on two occasions, I had a boyfriend try and explain to me that I was treating my menstrual cramps wrong.  Yes - I mean I went out with TWO guys who did this.  When I explained that my condition meant that slightly different meds worked for me, they accused me of lying about it just because "you have to be right."

What was wrong with me?  What was wrong with THEM?

I always have a problem with bra straps slipping off my shoulders no matter how many times I adjust them.

Strap Perfect. I swear by them (https://www.strapperfect.com/).

Oooh, me likey! I have slim shoulders and am not very well endowed so the fact that they'll even give a bit of a lift is nice!

I'm built like that also.  :)

I struggled a bit the first time I attached one to the straps (you're working behind your own back after all, and can't see what you're doing), but caught on very quickly and have had no problems since.

Pretty sure they've saved me from insanity, as my straps won't stay up otherwise no matter what I do.

Same here. I'm blissfully unaware of loud ads and such because of it. That kind of stuff drives me up the wall.

Maybe this is a new thing, I have no idea, but when I was at the supermarket yesterday I walked around the corner and came face to face with a little girl on a razor scooter... closely followed by a little boy on a bike with training wheels. Fortunately for me I am young and fit and I can dodge, although I wasn't exactly expecting to have to take evasive action in the freezer section. However the next person to come around that corner might not be so lucky.

I know that little Billy and Suzie are very excited by the new toys that Santa gave them, but bikes, scooters and all other wheeled contraptions are outside toys for a reason, particularly when they are in the hands of small children who don't have terrific motor skills yet. You wouldn't let them ride their bikes in your loungeroom, so why for pity's sake would you think it was a good idea to bring them to a place like the supermarket where not only are there other shoppers, but also shopping carts, prams and aisle displays to be navigated?

I had a boyfriend who insisted that something was wrong with me because - how can I put this delicately? - he didn't make me "happy".  He said over and over that all of his other girlfriends had been absolutely "ecstatic", and if I wasn't, it was MY fault. 

Suggesting that perhaps his previous girlfriends had been faking their happiness didn't go over well.

Did you date my ex?

Can't imagine they're allowed, as most stores, at least in the US have even banned "heelies", the sneakers with wheels built into the heel for that very reason. Wonder how they got that past the employees? Especially the bike! :o
