Grumpy old gamers

Post by Jessica on Sat Jan 16, 2010 5:29 am

Along the lines of 'grumpy old men' this is for any moans, about absolutely anything that winds you up!

Why is it that when we're short on time children drag their feet. When there's time to spare they're ready and asking 'are we going soon' all the time

If I were to list everything that annoyed me i'd be here for several days...

Let's start with the disdain with which I am treated for simply being a teenager.

This may be a US thing, but I tend to get a little grumpy when I'm checking out at the grocery store and the person in line in front of me decides to use their coupons and pay with a check... after everything has been rung up.

Pet-peeves, to many to list, #1 is people talking on their cell phone will driving, sorry but I was in a head-on accident with a kid that was on his phone and it took a while for me to heal up because the airbags didn't deploy Neutral

Smurf: I fit into at least two of those categories. I'm off to go and cry in a corner.

Which brings me to, has anyone ever cut themselves trying to get something out of one of those boxes. I did it on the plastic packaging from my new PS3 controller over the holidays. Sad

I often get paper cuts at work, especially when I'm bulk filing or opening the post, they hurt like hell, and seem to catch on everything too.

The hardest packaging to open nowadays has to be a close competition between heat sealed cheese and any childs toy!

The present we gave Rosie's friend Ben for his birthday this year was a remote controlled dinosaur, we had to go to the garage and get wire cutters and pliers to remove it from the box, that was after we used scissors and considerable brute force too

I hate the new glue that they use on packing boxes. The old glue, you would grab a corner and the flap would come up, the new glue, grab the same corner: a) the box rips to pieces before the glue gives up, b) the flap won't budge and the search for a knife is on. Very Happy

This one happened to me this morning. I needed gas in the car, so I pull into the station right behind someone else. There are 3 pumps on the island but the person in front of me stops at the closest one instead of driving 50' further and leaving 2 more pumps for the rest of the world to use. This means I can't go around them because of the building and now have to back out into traffic to come in from the other side or wait while they fill their car or try to stretch he hose around the back of my car and hope it will fill. Just a little thought and consideration of others would go a long way.

Lucky you're so polite. I'd have been tempted to park right behind him, get out of my car, and go and ask him if the other pumps are broken. Getting a negative response I'd have asked if there was a cure for lazyness and inconsideration or if he was terminal! Laughing

OK, so why does a game that's sold as ready to use need so many patches and so much fixing?!

How come they can't even organise it to give everyone the patch at the same time too Rolling Eyes

I hate knowing that IW and Treyarch will always win, because gamers will always buy their rubbish just because it has COD on it. They both know they don't have to manufacture a decent product for it to sell

In checking one of my other email accounts I was informed that someone had posted a comment on one of my videos.... Now normally I check these comments, chuckle to myself and move on but this one is another one of those comments that makes no sense at all to me.

I won't post the video again it's already here somewhere (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvaEKDAKVc0) but the first comment is
"dude your horrible .. ps3 somehow always´╗┐ has noobs"

Yes I know I'm horrible I've never debated that fact but really.... PS3 always has noobs. Clearly in the upper right corner it says it's a beta and it's been so long since I taped that I believe it was one of, if not the first, game I played on it without a team. So is this person trying to tell me they are experienced at playing a beta version of a game? Can we please get the terminology right if you are going to insult me and my friends?

OK, garages... why can't they be honest and tell you when they think everything will be fixed on cars? Why try and bluff it out for weeks?

I was told when I first let the garage have my car to repair "You might have it back by the weekend", then that changed to "It'll be ready mid-week" (of the following week). That altered to (next week from the last comment of course) "You'll have it to use on Tuesday", which changed to "You'll have it back on Tuesday evening". Next was "Sorry, you'll have it for Wednesday", then "You'll have it back on Wednesday".

Last comment I had was "You'll have it back Thursday morning by 0915". Well, it's 0820 now, but I don't think I'll start holding my breath any time soon!

Right, that's it! I'm officially fed up with 2010!!!

First I had my car crash (got the car back now, but the insurance are still messing me about)

Then I had my credit card cloned (at a TGI's - beware)

Now I've been given a prescription for a problem with my elbow and apparently I'm allergic to the tablets Rolling Eyes

I woke up at 5am (after going to bed at 1am) with numb fingers, feeling dizzy, my whole body itching and swollen, and I was shaking too. One anti-allergy tablet taken, now I just have to wait for it to take effect properly.

To top it all, I'm booked in for a c t scan today. I guess that should be ok, as long as I don't doze off during it
