Bugs the Debugger Won't Help You With
SET RANT ON
You do not even have to read any further because there is nothing you can do to improve the situation and contrary to the title, this has nothing to do with any debugging tool. However, Dear Abby says that I will feel much better if I get it out of my system, so here goes. The "bugs" where the debugger WON'T help are those little things that, frankly, annoy the H-E-double hockey sticks out of me. I am wondering if they bug you as much or perhaps you even have some that annoy you and would like to vent. Feel free to comment. Right now, it is my turn.
#1 on my list are the companies who have a double door leading into their establishment and NEVER, repeat, NEVER unlock one of the doors. What is that all about? They paid for the door. Why not use it? Otherwise, it is just an expensive wall. I don't need to have my carpel tunnel syndrome aggravated by walking into a door (assuming that it will open) only to find it doesn't budge because it's locked.
#2 is public restrooms where the maintenance person has jammed the paper towels so tightly into the towel dispenser that it is almost impossible to pull a towel from the dispenser. Invariably, my wet hands try to pull the towel only to come away with a white triangle about the size of my thumb. I try again; same result. I then reach into the slot and pull out 15 towels. The triangles have fallen onto the counter, making a mess and I have killed another tree by wasting 15 towels when two would have done the job.
#3 is a corollary to #2. The hand dryers that blow hot (if you are lucky) air. Their drying span is too short to complete the job and yet, too long if run a second time. Think of all the electricity we are wasting by having to run the hand dryers a second time. If we want to stop our dependence on foreign oil, we can start by increasing the amount of time in the drying cycle of hand dryers by 50%, thus requiring only one cycle.
#4 are cell phones. Oh, you are all shaking your heads. Well, then, I won't go any further because you already know what I am going to say. Please, save me the effort and just say it for me.
You know, Dear Abby was right. I do feel better and the price of the therapy was cheap. Thanks for listening. You, too, can avail yourself of this free, cathartic treatment. Just let me know what is bugging you. Until the next time, here's to better mental health through griping, moaning, and complaining.
