From my research, they are meant for delis and the numbers make more sense in a deli environment. However, a lot of larger businesses use them for employees because they are built like tanks. THEY DONT EVEN HAVE A PLATE THAT SPINS IN THEM!

having to tell someone to do something multiple times even when it's something that we/they do on a regular basis.
Examples:
- I load up fiber reels on trailers at work. Well when the reel isn't very wide we put pvc sleeves on each side of it so it's not moving side to side too much. Every damn time I have to tell the installers to adjust the sleeves because they'll catch on the trailer thus not letting the bar sit properly.
- I send return labels to our contractors. I'm usually contacted via our support team. I always have to ask the same things. How many labels, weight of the boxes, and contents?

Those are annoying. First example seems to be people just don't care as much as you.
Second example is infuriating because they have to know they are asking for something without providing you enough of the upfront information. You shouldn't have to provide them a template to prompt them to include the basic information

Here's something I use almost daily but hate using it. Lotion. No matter how often the bottle says "non-greasy" my hands feel greasy for at least a half hour or more after applying it. Also it feels like my hands are suffocating. I usually only use lotion before bed so I fall asleep not long after putting it on, but I still don't like it.

O'Keefee's Working Hands
This is the best lotion I have found. I have disgusting dry hands and should use lotion a lot more. I would say it is pretty non-greasy. But you are right, all of them are to some extend.

I'll give it a try. Maria used to have this gel that I liked. It was expensive. My hands would be sticky for a minute or two while it was drying/absorbing, but no greasy or suffocating feeling.

Parking like this. There are 2 cars on my block that 99.9% of the time are parked across the sidewalk. Annoying when the kids have scooters, bikes, power wheels and strollers.

Yep that would annoy the hell out of me. Our sidewalk in the neighborhood is right on the street and occasionally people will pull their car two wheels onto the sidewalk when parking on the street

Yes I agree that is very annoying. I think technically in most cities that's against the city code and you can be cited for blocking the sidewalk with a vehicle. You could always be "that guy" and phone in an anonymous tip to the police...

It's fine if they have guests over but most people who do this, do it every day

Right. I wouldnt even have posted it if I felt like it was a one off thing. But it is their default parking spot instead of the street. Some people have a lot more people living with them since COVID and college students are home, but this was a thing long before covid. Just park on the street!

Update on the cars that always park blocking the sidewalk. Both have 2 stall garages. Both garages were open recently and are so messing that no cars can park in there. If they just spent a weekend organizing the garage they could park a car in there and problem solved.

I went through that this spring. For maybe 2 months I had all my landscaping materials in my side of garage.

I did finally get it cleaned and can't understand how anyone could live with a permafull garage.

Cleaning your garage enough to park in it, is such a nice luxury. Even parking in my detached garage during the winter is awesome. Though I should insulate the garage better because when it's really cold out, the opener doesn't like to work.

We went 3 years only parking 1 car in our 2 stall garage so I can only judge people a little bit. Wilkins went 3 years not parking a single car in his 2.5 stall.

Currently we have a 3 stall and since COVID started I've parked my car outside in the 3rd stall driveway so the kids have more room in the garage to play and get their bikes/power wheels, mower, etc out.

I went two?? years without parking a car in my garage. To be fair, I wanted to have the rafters replaced before I used it for vehicle storage. And I'm finally getting around to reshingling it next month. I definitely need to clean and organize it again.

I hated my old garage. It was detached and at an angle. Janelle can't park to save her life, so I would've always been fighting to squeeze in there, and she would've probably backed through the garage wall getting out, so we just didn't bother.

Remember that time Crkrjack was parked behind her on the road, and instead of just pulling forward she went in reverse and hit his car?
