People and Things that Suck by Kathy G

1. Waiting in single digit wind chills for a bus that decides to be hella-late.

2. Watching one of your buses go by (not full) with the driver making the hand motion "there's one right behind me" which means, minimum of 5 min more wait.

3. Watching three of the same bus route number go by whilst your feet start to go numb.

4. Single digit wind chills.

5. Getting to work late and finding 2 students already waiting on you.

6. Having a day from hell with only a lunch break.

7. Having students get mad at you due to their own irresponsibility and disorganization.
Quote: :A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine."

8. Finally getting the time to write the MBTA a complaint (about the bus issue 1-3 above) and having their website not work to take the complaint (sounds to me there's a lot of complaints happening).

9. Finally getting the gumption to do laundry and finding only $1.70 on the laundry card.

10. Having to go out in the bitter cold to the laundry cash loading machine, only to try 6 times to get my cash to actually be accepted.

11. Laundry cash loading machines.

12. People who think a condo fee going up $22 is worth going around to ask for signatures to "review the financial documents" of the Condo Association. Then getting pissed you don't agree with his opinion. Get a life.

13. A-holes who consistently do NOT shovel sidewalks after snows, so I therefore have to try not to break my neck or get my foot stuck in snow outside their house walking home.

14. Finding that ranting and chatting with friends still doesn't make your "mad" go away.

The End.

Zune crash :)

Sorry.. this is way too funny :)

2008 ends with worldwide Zune crash

Latent Y2K fears manifested last week when Zune players began crashing in unprecedented numbers. The Microsoft devices have been freezing up while loading, leaving users with a picture of the Zune icon and a loading bar, according to published reports.

Zunes, particularly the 30GB version, apparently began crashing as the clock struck midnight on New Year's Eve. The problem apparently was caused by a leap-year related programming bug.

Microsoft has since posted instructions that the company says should get the Zune devices running again.

The timing of the Zune crash has some calling the glitch Z2K, according to Urban's Jan. 1, 2009 word of the day was Y2K9, defined as "the simultaneous worldwide crash of every 30GB Zune during the early hours of the morning on Dec. 31, 2008."
