    I don't think my job/friends would like me putting paint marks on their hardware.

    Hmm, I would tell them your paint pen inoculates the devices against viruses ;)

    You now know the power of the caffeinated side. :evil:

    I live in a second-floor apartment and I have a complaint about my downstairs neighbors. No, they're not noisy, they don't have parties all night, and they don't play loud music. In fact, they're very nice people. They do cook a lot, and the odors from their cooking waft up into my room. Usually it actually smells pretty good -- but the smell is invading my personal space, dammit! I use a lot of Neutra Air.

    Have you tried looking at the plug end of the stick to see which is the slot side and which is the thing-that-sticks-out side?

    I'm all out of Keurig K-cups and had to make coffee in an old-fashioned drip machine. It took nearly SIX MINUTES! Plus I spilled grounds between the counter and the fridge and my cleaning lady doesn't come until Thursday. HELP!

    Just had a mini power outage - one of those ones that lasts about five seconds. I had to turn my computer back on and reset the time on my digital clock. IT TOOK ME TWENTY SECONDS! Twenty precious seconds I'll never see again.

    Our cable company doesn't provide BBCAmerica in HD. I feel wronged.

    I hope nobody ever turns that into a "That's what SHE said" joke.

    Ever since upgrading from Windows XP to 7 the sound on my computer randomly refuses to work after a couple of hours of not having any music or games that use sound going, which means I have to restart my computer once or twice a day and that takes a minute each time I'll never get back!

    I can't find a decent recipe to use up my extra wheel of Brie. Dammit.

    Clothes dryer went out and I have to dry clothes the old fashioned way hanging and using racks. I haven't seen the difference in my electric bill yet.

    Today, my wireless keyboard ran low on battery power, so I had to plug it in to recharge it.

    IT WAS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Maybe, get some artificial hair (like for a doll) and glue it around the socket.

    This might make it easier to insert the UBS device.

    (to avoid damage, please do not insert the UBS device over and over again)

    If hair was all it took to be accurate well..

    It's not. That's all I have to say about it.

    Give the brie to a homeless person. That way you feel you are doing a good deed, and he/she will think you're yuppie scum for giving them that crap.

    My convertible got towed while I was in Starbucks last Saturday. Retrieving it took all of twenty minutes, but the tow truck bent the custom license bracket.
