Complaints/Rants/Public Bitching!

Maybe I'm becomming a "Grumpy Old Man" as I get older...but here's some "public" rants about people, life, business, social, etc, etc, etc. Whatever I feel like....Deal with it!

Sure, I have my beliefs, opinions, etc that I could also rant about, but people are such babies now-a-days, they won't be able to hear the works without crying or having emotional breakdowns. Unfortunately, most people can't have a civilized discussion about anything anymore. Anyway here's some stuff I hate and just feel like complaining about it for some reason. It might resonate for you.


I don't get it. It's a chicken sandwich people! You know, the crap that you got in your middle-school cafeteria with a "Kraft" single barely melted on top....and you hated it!

Well this company got traction in the late-80's/early 90's and I don't know how or why, it has exploded in 2010-2020's. It just amazes me...a chicken patty with a pickle on a bun and there's your billion dollar company. (Insert hand to head slap here!)

In a pinch, I've gotten a sandwhich there and the traffic is nuts, the lines are long, and they always want to "have a relationship" with me. You don't need my name. I don't want to chit-chat with you while I'm waiting. Stop with the "fake" pleasantries like "please", and "thank you", and "how else may I assist you", and crap like that. Just deep fry that patty and throw it in a bag.

I give them a fake name every time. I've used names like "Tim", "Andre", "Jim", "Joe", and my favorite, "Titus". That made me the end of the drive-thru, my name was somehow converted to "Mr. Titus" by the staff. See, if you have real respect for the customer, the name isn't just a "tag"....don't abuse the fake relationship! :-)

Had to stop at the mall for an Apple TV 4K device and picked up a sandwhich...see the name? And yes, I ordered it without the pickle!!!! Ew! Gross!

NFL Sunday Ticket

Was a DirecTV customer for years and NFL Sunday Ticket was awesome - especially the RedZone Channel.

Well 2023 Season comes along and Google throws Billions of dollars at the NFL and wins the contract. So you have to purchase YouTube TV to get Sunday problem. Well, the voice of the RedZone channel sucks now. The production quality sucks. In the old Sunday ticket, they would switch to games where a team was driving toward the endzone from 30-20 yards away, or show a big play, then off the screen and onto the next. This new guy (from NFL Channel) running RedZone is a spaz. We end up seeing commercials, extra points, etc and missing some really good action while he is talking over everything instead of just shutting up and letting me watch the games. It's pretty bad!

Temu - Chinese Shopping Site

One word....CHEAP!
Another word....CRAP!

I've ordered some stuff from the online shopping site Temu (a Chinese competitor of USA's Amazon) and you can get lots of stuff from this site. Everything from clothing to electronics to tools. Some stuff if just "OK" and other stuff is literally "JUNK", and then there's some sellers that are "MISLEADING".

Think of Temu as a flea market with all kinds of sellers, selling a lot of the same stuff, some prices are the same, but it all comes down to quality of the product and trust. You pick an item and literally hope and pray you didn't get ripped off.

Most of the time you get something like what you ordered, but a lot of the time you end up throwing away your hard earned couple of bucks....and if you order a lot of stuff that could add up quickly. I've gotten some LED lights or USB cables and been happy with them, but other items, I've been scammed, for example a simple roll of clear double-sided tape. Let's just say my hands are big, but not that big, so the size of the tape represented was nothing like what I received!

This was the straw that broke the camel's back and I've since removed the App from my phone, and setup a spam filter to auto-delete emails (spam) from my mailbox. Good Luck Temu!!!
