When you go to a place that only does take-away and they still program their machines to prompt you for a tip when you're paying. So it puts you in the position of having to deliberately opt out of tipping, making you feel like a jerk, in a situation where nobody would tip in the first place.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Cooking videos that don't tell you the level of heat they're using on the stove.

I am guessing that you have not used the same heat as the video and things have not gone well?

Not this time. I always look it up first. It's just a bummer that they're too vague about it. "Make sure it's not too hot" is not helpful.

Microwaves which don't have any way to mute button presses and timers. It is, by far, the most obnoxious of the kitchen appliances.

I'm no longer receiving notifications on boards I follow that somebody has posted.  Is it just me or did something change? I checked my junk folder and it isn't there.  I thought everybody must have picked up and gone but it is not the case.

It's all normal for me.
