This is precisely why I own a pair of Bose noise cancelling headphones.

Those take up way too much room in my bag, plus I don't like flying with an Egg McMuffin over each ear.

 

I have these (which were in my ears and NC was dialed all the way up), but they were no match for a voice that could cut glass.

Try taking out the cake pans and you may find you have enough room.  Either that or pack one less pair of paper drawers.

Since I was last at the Mud Hut, the neighbors with the ~5,000 SF house and the circa-1990 Oldsmobile Alero + Chevy Astro combo in the driveway have had some vehicle changes.

 

When I got back here last week the Alero was parked on the street with a jacked up front fender on the driver's side and a flat tire to go with it. I haven't seen the Astro at all.

 

A couple of days ago the Alero disappeared, and now there's a first-generation Porsche Cayenne coming and going.

The Alero and the Astro seem to be gone forever.  :good: 

 

The Cayenne now seems to be their only vehicle, so there's no excuse for not putting it in the garage when it's not in use.  

Now the driveway is consistently occupied by a Chevy Cruze and a compost bin.

My SDGE bill makes even less sense than normal this month.

 

Most of the charges are wiped out by an unexplained credit, leaving a balance due of $0.50.

 

In order to pay the $0.50 balance I had to make a $1.00 payment, since it's the minimum their site will accept.

Wow! Lucky you.

There are months the utility bill is higher in San Diego (where I spend maybe 10 days) than in Mudland, which is a larger place that's inhabited ~100% of the time by 1.7 people and 2.0 cats.  

 

Mudland also has something called weather.

Reason #47 out of about 500 why I am no longer a CA resident.

I do not want to watch HGTV (or ANY TV, for that matter) while I'm waiting for my car to be serviced.

 Fortunately, I have a TV-B-Gone.

"Bandwidth." My company uses the word "bandwidth" in place of the word "time." It drives me up the wall.

 

"Do you have the bandwidth to help this person today?" 🤬

I'm married to an electrical engineer.  Use that word incorrectly in our house and you get a stern frown - in Turkish.

 

BTW, I'll let the search party know that they can send the dogs and the psychics home, now that we know you're okay..  ☠️

I work at a tech company. They use any excuse to make something sound more tech-related. They also use "ask" as a noun, which annoys me.

 

I wasn't aware I was being searched for. 😐 Who's still here?

A person in front of me at the grocery store whips out the ol paper checkbook. She wasn't all that old either.

 

For crying out loud, even most DR die hards have enough class and respect to keep the lines moving by using a debit card. 

 

Last night at the Walmart was no better. Large signs above several self checkout robots clearly state...no cash and no checks. Credit and debit card only. Low IQ types can't read. Watching them get pissed because they had to gather up their shyt and go stand in the backed up humanoid checkout lines was entertaining though.

I will do grocery pickup at W*****t, but going inside is still taboo.

1. There's a certain paranoia among the Low Information People about using debit. 2. If your credit is shyt and you're listed in Chex you likely can't get a debit card.

I think the only Chex some are familiar with is the knockoff Walmart Great Value brand.

 

I've known a few whose banking relationships were so hosed up, they couldn't get one of those "second chance" accounts.

If you willingly walk into a Walmart, you kinds deserve anything that happens....

I'm going to the bank to make a deposit.  

 

They're going to ask me to swipe my debit card, as if I carry one.

Calling it a "Subie" makes me want one even less, which I didn't realize was possible.

I'm assuming you mean Subaru. Fun fact: Subaru buyers tend to have the best credit and highest incomes among mainstream brands, and is higher than some luxury brands. They also have the highest percentage of people who just pay cash. Their demographics are interesting.
