When your significant other decides to go gluten-free, buys all gluten-free items when she goes grocery shopping, and then she eats the remaining gluten-filled goodies herself

Why the fuck would you go gluten free if you're not allergic to gluten? Does your SO realize how stupid that is?

Believe me, I've had the conversation with her. She seems to think it'll help her lose weight and feel better ... Which is ridiculous since many gluten-free items are overloaded with sugar.

Her mom is legit celiac and I was misdiagnosed as celiac 17 years ago. There's no fucking way I'd ever voluntarily go gluten-free again. I haven't been able to eat potatoes since (the gluten-free selection then was basically just potato-based and rice-based items; my parents went primarily potato for me).

She'll also gain weight because IIRC the stuff they have to use to replace the gluten is quite fattening and rather unhealthy for you. Hard to believe she'd fall for that nonsense if her mom is actually celiac. I'm guessing this is a fairly serious relationship?

Eating a balanced diet and exercising more is too simple. She needs to make these things complicated.

I fully expect this stuff to sit in my cupboards until it gets thrown out, much like the past fad diets she's tried.

What grind your gears you say? It kinda still bothers me this morning. Last night, I got yelled at by a cyclist for letting someone cross the street. I reviewed my dash cam footage and the cyclist and I have never encounter before (you can see the pedestrian react when the guy yelled at me). All decked out in his fucking lime green vest, tighty twat pants and fucking dick shitting attitude. He caught me off guard when he yelled into my window, only thing I could do was calmly tell him the guy was crossing. I guess that got him more pissed and got the best out of it when he half way ate shit because his feet were clicked into his pedals. The amount of fucks given last night were none because I looked at him and laughed.

Sorry for such a long post, had to get it off my mind. Hope you all have a great day.

Flawed design of a product.

Anyone have a Dyson v6? The filter is designed by a retard. There is a half inch nipple for you to grip, turn counter clockwise and pull out. It's literally impossible to remove without using a tool.

Now I have a sore finger and thumb. A vacuum I once thought was perfect is destroyed by one flawed design.

Steam of all things just did this to me, to tell me it had an update. I would have though the people making the program designed solely for organizing and running games would be intelligent enough to NOT make it do that (since I was playing a non-Steam game and it minimized it on me).

Here's more gear grinders:
1. Buffoon car owners that outfit HID's in their halogen headlights. They do not care if they distract other drivers due to the glare it creates just as long as their ride looks cool.

2. Tailgaters. IMHO, one of the major causes of pile-ups in highways. Keep in mind the 2-second rule and keep off my butt! If you are in a hurry, go into the fast lane.

3. Door dings. Parked in a section of a parking lot far away from the multitude. An Asian chick with her LR Evoque parks right beside my car (of all parking spots) and swings her door wide open with no care in the world. BANG! My car gets a door ding. I call her attention and she just gives me a shy giggle like they do with their mouth covered. Walks away with no care in the world. Not an apology. I should have kicked her Evoque's door in while she was away.

4. Cigarette Butts. Drivers who flick their cigarette butts out of their cars expecting someone to pick up after them. Dumb asses know how to walk into a store to buy cigarettes but are too lazy to dispose of the butts properly. They ought to be shot.

I'll get off my soap box for now. Just have to vent some steam.

professionals and businesses that don't return voicemail messages within 72 business hours.

U think i don't forget? U think i call you because i want to talk about how your day is going?
no, i've got shit to do and your dumb ass isn't helping. What the hell is the point of your fucking voicemail when you don't bother returning calls on it. I'd understand if you were screening cold calls but I clearly state the purpose, who i'm from and the quick gist of why we need to speak. Hint fucking hint, it's pertinent to the business you are running. If I can return all my calls and messages within 48 business hours, you should be able to within 72. I know you're not a wall-street company dealing with high call volume on a consistent basis.

If you can't be bothered to return messages when people clearly took the time to leave them, you shouldn't be in fucking business.

yup have the v6 but I'm pretty sure you don't turn it when you put in or remove the filter you simply drop it in and leave it which is why a lot of people complain online that it just falls out sometimes.

Yes, but I forgot to do it since the door ding was barely noticeable. I was so pissed off at that time and I was in a hurry for my next appointment. Also, said Asian chick does not seem to speak any english. She ought to be shot!

My car still has that door ding. It does have another door ding that is quite deep, the size of a quarter. That one it picked up at another parking lot. I do not know who did it.

OK, I was responding to a thread in another forum when I remembered my ex-boss. He really grinds my gears as well as my co-workers' gears. This one will trump all others, I promise

What grinds my gears are people who are cocky and get ahead in life without an ounce of sweat. Some of us spent a lot of sweat and tears just to get where we are today in life. No, my ex-boss has a nice M.O. He was known to chase the Owners' daughter everywhere he worked. Well, when I joined my previous employer, he chased the company owner's daughter and bagged her. After a year, he owns part of the company.

Another 'what grinds my gears' moment is when both him and his father-in-law (owner of the company) starts 'keeping up with each other.' By this I mean: if one has a new toy, the other buys the same toy. The drive similar upscale cars. If one shows up with the latest iPhone, the other rushes out and buys the same. One gets a tablet, the other gets the same tablet. During the company picnic at the boss' home, we noticed that they wear the same slippers and smoke the same cigars. They both own the same breed of dog. Heck, I won't be surprised if they wore the same underwear!

The last thing that grinds my gears is when my ex-boss walks into the office in the morning. He whistles but he can't whistle properly. You know how a half-arsed whistle sounds like. Looking smug and cocky. That drove me nuts! That's it! I resigned after seven long and gear grinding years. I have had enough.

What grinds my gears.. The lack of communication.

Today, the construction sign bearers decided to get pissed off at me for their own mistake. There was only one lane and I saw that there were still traffic coming. The sign bearer in front of me flipped his sign from "stop" to "slow" and told me to go. I didn't move and he kept waving and yelling to go. Then when I saw it was safe, I inched forward and he flipped the sign to "stop" and kept smacking his sign and yelling "stop".

Those sign bearers are retarded, I've seen plenty of times where they aren't even paying attention, or holding the sign showing stop while waving their hand for you to go.

The internal e-market at work. No one ever lists a price and usually they provide the vaguest description you can imagine with no pictures ... Then they proceed to repost it every day because, shockingly, it doesn't sell. And, naturally, the moderators don't do anything regarding the spam even when reported.

Example:
Selling dad's old Lincoln. New tires.

No price, no model, no year, no pictures ...

Posted today:
1985 Celica Hatchback needs new home. 273000 km, motor good but requires other repairs for road worthy.

This is one of the better ones, sadly, but still lacks pictures and other important information like a price.

Then, if you actually make the mistake of e-mailing them for more information, they respond with "see the ad on Craiglist/Kijiji/UsedVictoria"... With no link provided
