    Last year ran a help wanted ad on Zip Recruiter. Found out there was no way to cancel the ad online. Had to call on the phone. Have never run another ad with ZipRecruiter.

    My son's in high school and took a dual-credit class at the University last semester. The HS charged us $250, but Friday I got a bill from the university for $1,500. I called the high school only to find out that the $250 was just for their processing of the paperwork....we still owed the university tuition, student fees, etc. They wouldn't let him register for his dual credit class this year until I paid last semester, so I did because he's scrambling to register because classes start next week.

    Only he can't register because the college doesn't have his immunization records. He got his immunizations at the university's teaching hospital. I spent two days trying to get the hospital to send the records to the university and was getting nowhere. I jokingly said, "you'd think since he got his immunization through MU Health that they could expedite it to you." The guy said, "oh wait...there, you're all set." They had access to his records the entire time.

    Only then did I discover that he had to complete a Title IX course on sexual harassment and discrimination. I'll skip the part about how stupid that is. He took the online course, but the hold was still in place. I called the Title IX department to get them to remove the hold. "I can only talk with the student." I explained that he's only 17 and was in high school all day. "I can only talk with the student." No matter what I said that was the exact phrase she repeated, nothing else. Time and time again.

    I'm sure there's at least one pet peeve in there somewhere.

    (on the bright side, this burden falls on my son from now on)

    Watching “The Orville” on FOX, every single commercial break is the same “FOX winter” promo, sometimes played twice back-to-back in the same 60~second break. Interspersed with a promo for “Empire”, also repeated ad nauseum.

    Aggravating in both its numbing repetitiveness and marked lack of imagination.

    Other than the acting and the scripts, it's a good show.

    Yes.

    One of my friends who goes to sci-fi conventions and is really into it really likes The Orville, but he hates Star Trek: Discovery. I barely tolerate the former and like the latter. No accounting for tastes, I guess.

    I just remembered that one of my biggest pet peeves is airports that lock up the restrooms after business hours! :mad:

    Batter covers that require screw drivers. When I was a kid, batter covers just snapped on and slid off. They worked perfectly. Now all my kid's toys require me to go find a tiny head screw driver whenever the batteries die.

    Yeah. There was a lot of dead grass around my hangar after night flights.

    Anytime some calls an event the “ first annual”. Nope, it’s the inaugural.
