Recent extremely minor irks


#1701

Recently upgraded Photoshop to CC 2019. Proportional scaling is now the default when re-sizing objects and layers, whereas previously you would hold down the shift key to allow this. Slightly irked.


#1702

Listening to NPR’s All Songs Considered on the TV, so they have little images by each song.

They played ‘Sabotage’ but showed the cover of ‘Licensed to Ill’ - a completely different album, released 8 years earlier!

Irked!


#1703

The way this date has been formatted to advertise this music festival


#1704

Wow.


#1705

An old friend of mine is having a difficult time right now and just complained that she has no one to talk to. We’ve exchanged 22 emails so far today. No one to talk to.


#1706

23 emails so far today.


#1707

#1708

#1709

27 now.


#1710

you need someone far more zen than me to help you with this kind of thing


#1711

Someone has put the dishwasher on (wasn’t full) when there’s loads of washing up sat on counter tops


#1712

Took me forever to work out what that was meant to be.


#1713

Asked to borrow a drill from my father in law so I can put some lights up, “I just need a 6mm drill bit”.

Gives me a little bag with an assortment of different sized bits in there, in case I need them for other jobs while I’ve got it.

None of them are 6mm.


#1714

Just use a 2mm and a 4mm. [nods sagely]


#1715

4mil and waggle it about a bit


#1716

Have you been reading my Tinder bio?


#1717

This is precisely what I did. Well, with a 4.5mm bit. Only it wasn’t actually a 4.5mm bit, it was a silly imperial measurement - 15/32”


#1718

One for the out-of-context thread, methinks.


#1719

been chatting with a bunch of strangers online trying to make friends, and i’m all like “whereabouts do you work” or “whereabouts do you live” and they answer “oh i live at yonge and st clair” or whatever (as in, the intersection of streets) which sounds cool to say but obviously you can’t type that into gmaps and see where it is


#1720

(Use directions, put first in from, 2nd in to… then look where it takes you…)
