You: More than 15 minutes late to a doctor appointment.
Them: You're rescheduled or seen when they decide to fit you in.

Them: The patient scheduled an hour and a half ago is being seen, there's 3 more in rooms and another one before you in the waiting room but thanks for being on time.

You: Whut?

People who stop a car-length or more behind the stop line at a stoplight. I don't understand. I can understand like 2 or 3 feet, because you can't see the line at that point and you don't want to be in danger of getting hit by cross traffic or trigger a red light camera. But 10 or 12 feet? COME ON.

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

I... may have seen this sort of thing a few too many times over the past several days, and it's annoying me more than usual.

Spoiler: show
“Sometime” is not the same as “some time.”
“Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.” “Sometime” != “some time.”

...And other variations on that theme.

(Presumably, the only way to stop a bad guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law is a good guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law, and thus transgender-friendly privacy law rights need to be enshrined in the Constitution as well)

Again, this is one for the Adult Kindergarten curriculum.

Single occupancy public bathroom. You come upon one that you need to use. You try the handle. It is locked.

DO NOT KNOCK ON THE DOOR

Your options are to patiently wait or move on in search of another bathroom. There is no point in knocking. The person using the bathroom doesn't care that you're out there and need to use it. It won't make them hurry up, it will probably make them take their sweet time. Also getting angry with them as they exit won't do anything but make you look like more of an idiot.

How do you know they tried the handle first, though? Most single-occupancy bathrooms I've been to the handle won't move on either side if the door is locked.

Why would someone knock before trying the handle? Oh no, oh I've made a horrible omission.

Part II: The Prequel.

When you're entering a single occupancy bathroom kindly lock the door behind you. Stop being an "accidental" exhibitionist.
