Re: The micro-RANT thread

Oh, and those on the train who speak soooo loudly, be it to their fellow passengers (especially the ones diagonally across from them, better yet across the aisle) or into their phones.
Once about two dozen passengers and I endured a 20 minute tram journey during which a young woman loudly explained a whole lot of very personal and intimate details, including who caught whom in bed with whom, and what everyone had had to say about it afterwards. Right at the end, she said to her friend: "Abr gäll, das bliibt unter üüs, odr?" (But this will remain just between us, won't it?) and the whole "audience" burst out laughing.

I had the opposite last week. The gal waited to pay until after all her groceries were properly stacked in each bag, carefully rearranging until they were equal weight and no fruit or veg was smashed. Then she had trouble with her PIN and had to switch cards to pay. No worries, lady, I have alllllll day.

Re: The micro-RANT thread

Loud typers and mouse scrollers in the office. Didn't even know you could scroll so loudly! After almost 10 years of working at an open plan office it is the first time i'm complaining about noise

Re: The micro-RANT thread

SLUGS!
mother-f'ers ate all my lupine starts last year. Then all my squash plants. watermelons. cantaloupe. and on and on.

Ive had my baby corn plants in the guest room by the window. Planted 'em out a few days ago. Now they're all showing slug damage already.

That's it, this means WAR!

I'm off to the garden with a flashlight, a squirt bottle of diluted ammonia, and a few beers to help numb the pain (my pain, not the slugs'…)

Urgh yes, open plan offices are horrendous.

Slugs - I got slug guards in Landi which are excellent.

Re: The micro-RANT thread

It's tunnel wall cleaning time again. On top of the delay caused by moving the traffic all into one lane the spray from their high pressure jets has made my car dirty.

...mouse scrollers in the office. Didn't even know you could scroll so loudly...
I recently bought a logitech mouse with a silent scroll wheel. It doesn't click at all - just spins. In a geeky way, I find it quite cool.

Today's micro-rant: Dufourstrasse has been temporarily made one way near Kundstmuseum. Some cyclists think it's ok for them to go along the pedestrian path - clearly marked as for pedestrians - without dismounting, even at speed... and then they get cross if you're in the way!

Yup, let's make a "Micro-rants that actually should be in the 'First World Problems' thread" thread.

Rant of the day:

The Swiss are too darn happy!! With all the safety, security, and happiness through the roof, I can't find a job as a licensed clinical psychologist!!!

So if you find yourself smiling too darn much, just think of me: a poor, unemployed sap withering away in Zurich with nothing to do but bug you on this micro-rant thread.....

So there!!!

Oh do tell...I've got nothing else better to do than read this ranting rant on this rant thread....
