Things I don't Like
I don't like it when I get mail marked "fwd" I like it even less when someone sends me "Pretty Park". I don't like waiting in line at Wendy's for twenty-two minutes, for cold french fries, with no ketchup. I don't like it when the driver in front of you doens't, 1.Go 10mph over the limit. 2.Use blinkers. 3.Understand there is a mid-point between full gas and full brakes, called coasting. 4.Fix his **** oil burning junk Camaro/Honda/wtf car or get it off the road. 5.Stay off your bumper. I don't like using a negotiated benefit(like Vacation and Sick Time), then getting chastised for it. I really don't like writing long messages and have the isp drop me like a hot potato before I can SEND. I don't like to go to the emergency doctor office(quick tune clinic) with a broken toe, only to have the insurance balk on the payment. geez . I don't like having a couple of minor 4 hour operations with 12 weeks total recup time, only to be put on the hardest jobs when you return to work. I don't like writing a $444.00 check for car tags TODAY. I don't like listening to my neighbors dog bark at me every time I move outside, same one who shot ole Monza,, grr. I don't like turning the Monza in to the insurance people and getting turned down, not covered. I don't like my insurance company sending goons to my house to "Take Pictures to make sure you're fully covered" after I informed them personally "No Thanks" still they come. Middle of my night at 1:30pm doorbell, "HI, we're Peter Ashoe and Bish OftheNOrth to take your Official Insurance Company photos," Fine I say, "FROM THE ROAD", not hearing me, MS Bish is steady walking towards the back, "EXCUSE ME" in my best Suzanne! Finally stopping I told her, "From the road, you're now trespassing" They went to the road. I don't like going through Customs, anywhere. I don't like doing two other peoples work, and getting run down in the process, they THINK. I don't like hearing people whine about how bad THEY got it. I don't like being a Hypocrite, I just happen to be one. goodaye, DrVette
........and all I hated were the new taco bell commercials.......
I didn't recognize you with Junior under your name .
I think the Doc has gone off the deep end.
*edit- ummm...to clear things up, I didn't mean anything discriminatory by the first comment. was joking.

Feel better now?
Phase 1 of 672 Complete in the DrCorvette Therapy Program.
One thing I like, old Taco Bell commercials, fav one is "Heere Leezord Leezord Leezord" in steps Godzilla, "uh oh, I tink I need a beegor box" sniff,
Brandon, I didn't even notice. One odd note to my personality traits is the unique knack for handling many situations up to potential violence with a cavilaer air. It comes natural. Maybe I'm too dumb to know trouble, I don't offend easily. Even those who try only get some sort of diatribe worthy of Jethroe Bodine's School of Cyphering. I did gradguated frum da Jefroe Bodin Schlul of Sifering.. en 19 uh, I forget..
DrC. We went da the same schlul in 19ah yeah
DrVette, I see you have been to the Dennis Leary School of Anger Management again
Jeez, what kind of world is it where some dumb kid can shoot out your car windows with impunity, but you can't pop a cap in the @ss of a trepassing insurance salesman?
"These Americans are crazy", as Obelix says
i dont like PC people.....
(see if you can see a pun)
Vette, my man:
When I get ticked off and rant and rave, the doctor told me to make myself a big, huge PROZAC milkshake.
However, you haven't gotten that far, so I suggest rather than Anger Management, Offensive Incident Management. I personally can't do this, but my friend Bill can do this "Talk to the Hand" thing that would make you grin. But he does it in a way that makes the receiver want to thank him for the trouble. He is Ghandi to my Hiroshima!
So, breathe deeply, relax and sip away!
BTW, are you Dickie Vette, Phd like the Professor on Gilligan's Island or Richard Vette, MD, like Marcus Welby?
If you're the latter, I've got this rash...
I'm silly before my cornflakes kick in!!
Another think I don't like.
I bust my rear, searching for folks' solutions.
Sometimes spending nearly an Hour digging through monotous drivel so dry it would make even Dr. Spock CRACK.

I ask for a SIMPLE opinion about USB networking, and all I get is an ECHO.
HELLOO, HELOO,, helloo , hello , hell
Sorry to hear about your woes DrCorvette. I wish I could say things are going to get better, but I don't like lying. People aren't going to change their driving habits, medical care is just going to get worse, bad neighbors suck, coworkers will continue to slack, big companies are still going to screw the little guy, and people are going to always want to get stuff off their chest.
Hey, um, as a solution to that dog problem, you might want to look into an ultrasonic pitch device. I remember my friend's father (he sold non-lethal defense products) sold those to joggers who were afraid of getting attacked by dogs. They essentially emit a noise that isn't perceptible by humans, but hurts the hell out of a dog's ears. My neighbors have three dogs, and they bark all **** night, and I've had fantasies about throwing grenades stuffed in steaks onto their porch. The ultrasonic device doesn't seem so inhumane now, hunh? Check out http://www.uscav.com/index.asp
Aside from venting, I also suggest that you pick up a hobby for release. I for one enjoy building stuff. Since I don't have enough money to build a bunch of computers, I do a lot of woodwork. 2 x 4's and plywood are cheap, compared to Voodoo's and AMD's. It's kind of funny, if you look inside my apartment, it's full of all the stuff I've built... shelves, stools, tables, benches, and so on. Really relaxes me.
Vette, the best solution to a dog problem is a BB gun (or a quiet pellet-gun).
The few things I don't like:
"Yes" people (lackeys)
Lying & Posturing
funny how the fourth item relates to the three above it.
Oops, forgot -- Shatner's Priceline.com commercials
