I noticed recently, half way through giving someone my phone number that I use ‘Oh’ instead of ‘zero’ in and only in phone numbers so of course my brain went “That’s odd! You need to standardize and should start, right the fuck now!” switching to “zero” for the second half of my phone number. Well now saying a number I’ve never heard before my brain suddenly jumps in with “wtf, are you sure that’s your number?” and so stammered through it, appearing as if I’ve never heard of the concept of a phone number until that instance.

Do you say 'treble seven', or 'double seven, seven', or 'seven, double seven' or 'seven seven seven'?

Grass lawns are a stupid waste of time, energy, and space and I hate them and I would rather plow the whole goddamn thing up and have somebody plant a pollinator garden, except I am too lazy to maintain it and probably the neighbors would have their fucking mosquito treatment and kill everything :madrant:

I really love Spring when the neighbors' well manicured grassy lawns are overrun with Dandelions.

Me too! I like dandelions, the bees like dandelions, and PupetteF likes tearing the heads off dandelions. Dandelions > grass

I killed our front lawn on purpose a few years ago. I laid out cardboard boxes as a weed barrier, then put mulch all on top of it.

And this reminds me that I got some native wildflower seeds I need to get out there. I'd totally forgotten that.

Dandelions are the best, though, it's true.

The Mor-Man. He made my commuter mug coffee for me this morning because I was running late.

By mistake - I hope - he reused a Keurig Pod instead of putting in a new one. I got a big ol' mouthful of something that tastes like dirty dishwater and milk.

For the first time in a couple of decades I have someone living above me (that flat was a dentists' office for the 12 years I have been here and before that I lived in a house for 8 years).

I hate it so much.

I should be happy, though, at least it appears to be some sort of humanitarian that is maybe raising money by running indoor marathons all day. Or something.

Hahaha, funny that.
The apartment complex I live in was built in the early 70s and the fire alarm system seems that age as well. After one too many 1am false alarms from the system tripping, the fire department, who has to come every time, even if they know it’s false (I think they have the only full-reset key) have forced the apartment to update.

Which means we’re getting a new system installed everywhere! oh the drilling and hammering!

On the up side, this one shouldn’t trip, sometimes multiple times a night, for no reason, leading to the residents outright ignoring the physical bells that it rings. The downside is that every apartment is getting their own siren and flashing light (ok upside for those with disabilities) that will make it much harder to ignore if the thing still goes haywire.

(As the apartments have smoke detectors we’ve been indirectly trained to only care if we can hear one of those as well. Leading to the odd experience of trying to drown out the fire alarm to try and hear the fire alarm.)

I have a Rad Power ebike, and the magnetic ring which tells the pedal assist I'm pedaling fractured while I was riding it uphill. This bike is *heavy* and I pretty much can't ride up my local hills without pedal assist. We have 2 bikes, and this part failed on both, so I'm kinda mad.

It's supposed to be a nice weekend, and so this breakage kind of ruined all my expectations. So, I call the local store to see if they have the part, and no one answers. I call the corporate support # and no one answers. I eventually got the sales department on the phone and told them no one is answering their damn phone.

They can get through to the local support. They tell me they have the part, and I get the privilege to drive 45 minutes and buy a new part.

I would have done this all online, but I can't just order this part or see if it's available. I have to go through their support process. I could have wasted the nice Seattle weekend and wait for them to ship it to me.
