    When you put your beer down, and then it’s no where to be seen.

    Ew.

    Waking up too early on your day off.

    When you wake up and it's too early to rise and too late to stay in bed...

    One can’t eat dairy, but wants to eat everything. One won’t try anything new, can’t bear spicy food and only craves mechanically reclaimed, battered, fried ‘foods’. And one doesn’t eat meat and is dieting.

    Cooking family meals get harder every week.

    When you hesitate between two dishes at a restaurant, decide for one, and later wish you'd opted for the other one!!

    I generally find that in those instances the one you should have opted for was your first instinct to go for before talking yourself out if it.

    I usually stick to the same every time because of this. I know what I like, and anything else just isn’t the same.

    That's me, too. Almost every time I go to a restaurant that I'm familiar with and there is something I know I like, I get the same thing. Rarely do I deviate.

    I have one cat that doesn't distinguish between these two chains. Makes it frustrating when I'm trying to take pics of the top one.

    The bottom is one of her favorite toys.

    When people are late to a meeting (without a good reason).

    When episodes of any series end without resolving the plot, like last week's SVU did.

    Even worse is when the conclusion is on a sister show.

    Some SVU episodes are weird. They start with a story and in the middle of the episode the focus gets away from the original plot never to be resolved. One episode started with a case of domestic violence. The case was closed with the woman forgiving her husband. Then something totally different was told and suspects were pulled out of the proverbial hat like rabbits.....:shrug: Were the writers of such episodes drunk?

    The pick up and drop off arrangements at the schools are particularly bollocks. Basically mud, on a narrow road, with traffic calming measures, and angry impatient childless tossers trying to speed through to get to work on time. The powers that be say the children should walk to school, but that presupposes that the parents don’t also have to get to work, they don't have the time to walk back home to get the car.

    Also dog mess. Argh!

    I remember a cross over like that. The beginning of the story was an episode of "The Practice" and its conclusion was on "Ally McBeal". It was a few years ago.

    Might not be quite as bad in the US, but in other countries the sister show might be on a different channel and the sister show could be months if not years behind.

    That sounds awful. I guess you could even see the conclusion before the beginning!

    My housemate has yet to receive his W2.

    By law, employers are mandated to put them in the mail by January 31 at the latest!

    The payroll person in the company happens to be the owner's wife and is notorious for "forgetting" to pay vendors, send paperwork, and other sorts of things. Even one of the salesmen, who sold his stake in the company in the middle of the year last year (he was co-owner) only just got paid for his portion a couple of weeks ago after bugging this woman over and over and over again.

    I'm thinking this company may not be in quite as good of a condition as the (now sole) owner says it is.

    From the context, I’m guessing this is some kind of record for income tax?
