Words, Phrases and Other Stuff that Annoys Me


Recommended Posts

 

Haven't received any notification to upgrade my Surface Pro 3 to windows 10. Shouldn't that have come through already?

Look at the bottom where the time is. Their should be a notification.

 

 

From what I've read they aren't upgrading everyone at once.

 

I picked up a flyer in Best Buy over the weekend... it directed me to windows.com/Windows10Upgrade to learn more.

 

I registered there to be emailed when my dad's Windows 8 machine is eligible. The machine is about a year old.

Walked into a hostile situation this morning. I decided to be the sacrificial lamb, no matter the cost.   Asked raging lady if their was an office where we could have a conversation.  

While driving thru a less than desirable neighborhood today, I decided to hit the McDonald's drive thru for some McNuggets.   While a coworker and myself were I enjoying our processed myster

I keep looking and checking for updates - even though I'm set for auto updates. Nothing.

My 16yr old is in Hawaii with her cross country team. Everything there is "fine".

 

How was snorkeling? Fine.

Waterfall swimming? Fine.

Jungle hike? Fine.

Shaved ice? Fine.

Diamondhead? Fine.

Their race (which she WON)? Fine.

 

Thunk. Thunk. Thunk.

YOU HAVE A 16 YEAR OLD?! Oh god does that make me feel old. That must mean you're knocking on 40's door. *ducks and runs*

Even WORSE than age, we're looking at colleges.

 

Because I'm so old.

My friend bought Windows 10 and said it is very buggy. I'm not sure if I want to bother with the upgrade yet.

 

If it even slightly resembles Windows 8, I think I'll pass.

Nothing could possibly worse than windows 8.

 

I upgraded from 7 to 10.

 

It's more similar to win 7 but more bells and whistles.

51 hours after turning it back on, my Windows 8 machine is ready to download the 8.1 upgrade, which is a pre-requisite to upgrading to Windows 10.

 

The download is over 3 GB.

 

Here goes.

I've been shaking my fist a lot.

My Windows 8.1 laptop has been begging me for days to upgrade to Windows 10.

 

My Windows 7 work laptop has not given me the notification.

 

My four Macs are just laughing at the Windows PC's. (and have been for years)

Actually, if if weren't for the styling, the Aztek would have been known as a great crossover. So many usable features. And, really, there are uglier cars on the road. Just look at any Nissan today. The Cube? Juke? Or some of the Fiats. Or the Honda Element. Yeah...the Aztek isn't that bad compared to any of them.

They're all bad.

 

The new Murano is way better looking now. I'll give Nissan that.

I picture you in either a red 370Z coupe or a brown Mercury Topaz.

Because they are so similar.

 

Can't you just get a new computer?

I replaced that POS two years ago.

 

I want to upgrade it to Windows 10 so I can use it for a couple of weeks before I upgrade my dad's PC.

 

I am my family's Geek Squad and their travel agent, among other roles.

Well, I think it's going to take 2 weeks to upgrade.

More like 2 years at the rate it's going. Minnie, I see you in an Acura.

 

 

I really wanted an Acura Integra when I was in high school!

Bank of America will not accept an in-person deposit of foreign currency after 2:00 p.m., even though their branch is open. WTF is that?

 

I think they are lying. I worked there many, many years ago. We had to stay and help people with whatever transaction. It was a college town with lots of exchange students. We had lots of foreign deposits and/or large cash deposits. They were a pain in the a$$, but we couldn't just say no.

The lies were very convincing.

 

I went next to a US Bank branch for an unrelated reason, and the guy there told me that their customers have to mail in foreign currency deposits. Of course, he also referred to my fistful of euros as "aeros."

 

I thought the world was getting smaller. :dntknw:

Maybe things have changed. This was a long time ago. Remember, I am old.

I found out the hard way that some countries recall their currency to replace it with new stuff every now and then. If you keep their notes too long they become worthless.

If I hoard my miles for too long they will also become worthless :lol:
