Or people who think only Apple can do anything with graphics, or play MP3 files.

OS X > Win32 for software development.

Windows is a pathetic toy. One of those cheap plastic ones that breaks after playing with it for 5 minutes.

you know what grinds my gears?

im classic.. i love life but hate people! why are we all so god damn stupid? this life style of consumerism is a one way track! we are all doomed! this mindless lifestyle will kill us all! starbucks? mcdonalds! burgerking! cars! (esp suv's) buying property to rip off poor people... digging up your own grandmother 4 500 bucks... p smoking, children popping mutants... (there should be a exam before these mutants breeding) you are not the shit...

your world is based on control... and you have no controller! we are pawns living on what they kick down! we all smoke weed but its illegal? keep it real! we buy 60% ish of the worlds dub/reggae! the odd puff does you good.....ish but this system is doomed... monsters rule... intelligence is 2nd place to self-centered, self promoting mother F'ers! i'm sick of this world of everyone f"ing over their fellow being to live a life style were they take a lot but contribute nothing... your imperialism will come to an end! were will you stand when the revolution comes....

back to you diana!

...also remember that about 50% of communication is body language, and you can usually get a pretty good idea if the message is not getting across.
well said. i've trained many people at work (training takes between 3 and 5 days) and feel i have it nailed down pretty well. i start with some small talk (eg question them about previous employment) and from go i can tell how my training week is going to run. some people simply have a few nuts and bolts missing. one in maybe 12 people can pick things up without repeating myself but most people have to be told the same thing in 12 different flavours before they understand it. even when you ask them if they understood something they'll of course answer yes albeit with a blank face.

once you know get to know the person (their learning style - do they prefer things on paper? spoken to them? purely action?) things become much easier.

through all this i love training new people because i get so much more back out of it.

Customers who send in a DVD full of photos to be printed without checking how many files are on the disc.

"Oh, but I thought there were only 70 or so images on there!" doesn't even begin to excuse you for instructing us to print FIVE THOUSAND PHOTOS THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR.

Fucking morons grind my gears and this month's paper batch into the ground.

People who wait for elevators, and when it goes *ding* immediately move forward so their nose is right by the doors as they open, start to get in as soon as they do open, and don't give a shit about the people who want to get out on that floor.

thing is i don't even listen to underground artists. they are too mainstream for me because people know the fact, that there are other artists not in the mainstream and they are underground, so that makes them obsolete.

im so far under, im over the top, im top ground. i've gone through and back around. but since ive told you this, you will now know that there are top ground artists, therefore making them obsolete, so now i listen to nothing.

Picture a zombie Elvis in a tacky white jump-suit.
Just imagine a rotting Elvis shopping for fresh fruit.

That first bike ride after winter, over which you have been starting the engine and running it for a few minutes each week, only to find you have no idea how much petrol you have left. Then spluttering out on the motorway in the dark, and the terror of wondering if the kids have been playing on it and switched on the reserve tank.

The corollary of this is finding that they haven't, and that you have enough to cruise all the way to work.

They're just jealous of your awesomeness. I know how you feel though, it's hard to be so great at everything

Customer emails that the subject line says "Re: ....."

then their email does not contain the original email yet they refer directly to it in their one line response.

Or emails from hotmail or gmail accounts with no information on who they are other than their username which is usually something like foxychickie20585 or badboi38509
