Oh.

I guess it was just a thought. Wishful thinking for those lazy days, you know?.

I'm sure I will probably have something like that when I am old & grey.

Well said!!.


I knew you that you have a good head & your shoulder & able to see things in perspective.

I'm just just glad that HT has a button for an ignore list, so I don't have to see what I don't want to see .

No worries, 99% of you all are not in my ignore list, just one person, that's all!.

Aloha. =)

I hate it when someone switches the cereal bag for cheerios and honey nut cheerios.

Adrian...that was your Mom that was doing that. You see Safeway has this two for one deal on the regular Cheerios and she was slowly diluting the regular Cheerios with the Honey Nut until there wasn't enough to dilute.

By then your Mom probably figured you were so used to the taste of regular Cheerios that you wouldn't notice it. BTW were their any empty bottles of Salt Peter laying around the house?

BUT SHE WAS WRONGO! WASN'T SHE.

Actually she probably did it because you dumped the family Taurus for a Mazda.

I'm guilty of cereal subbing too. I integrate the Bag-o-Cereal generic brand from Safeway and pour it in the Coco-Krispies box when the kids are sleeping. Works all the time!

I'm a bit guilty of subbing, too! When my kids were in college and came home on vacation they had one thing on their minds...beach! And, they wanted a tan...yesterday! They were willing to slather on a low SPF lotion but not a high SPF. I bought bottles of #4 and subbed the contents with #30! They never questioned the results and I confessed over 10 years later!

i am thoroughly annoyed by people who own pets without taking care of them properly. more than one of the beau's neighbors own dogs, yet rarely do i see the parents play with them, take them for walks, etc. one neighbor owns a lil neurotic dog can yap for hours nonstop--literally. and when i say literally, i am not using one bit of hyperbole.

another bought a beagle last year but clearly didn't understand how high maintenance that breed is, nor did they anticipate the breed's tendency to bay. persistently and loudly. so loudly that a neighbor can still hear it clearly over the roar of football games blasting on a sound system whilst the windows and doors are shut.

if i could, i'd pay for each these owners to have a couple sessions with the dog whisperer.

Actually, the taurus wasn't the family car (that honor goes to the Aerostar).

And if I have the money and know someone who can store the car in long term storage, then I'll gladly do that - because now that the taurus line is gone, that car will become rare.

I hate having the HFD maintenance facility behind my house! First, the PA system wakes me up, now they're honking their fire truck horns (like how some people honk their horns when at someone's house waiting for then).

At least the sounds are expected and probably limited to the daytime. I used to live in an apartment in Makiki in my single days on Hassinger street next to the preschool that fronted Piikoi mauka of Lunalilo (yeah that stupid intersection that Ericncyn talked about). They had this old corrugated sheet metal roof shed that sat at the back border of their property which was adjacent to the apartment building.

Above that shed was this tall Mango tree. So tall that from my 3rd story window I could see thru the canopy of the tree. Everytime the wind blew a mango would drop baby drop right onto that steel roof ANY TIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT.

If that wasn't enough try moving in on a Sunday then finding out that preschool plays Reville at 8AM on their PA system Monday morning.

Yeah living in Makiki...you couldn't tell if that sound was an engine backfiring on the H-1 or another domestic shooting in the adjacent apartments.

heh heh. you're talking about island paradise school, eh? guess what, mr watanabe?

you might have seen me (well, the littler, cuter, more angelic and less cantakerous version of me) standing at attention at 8:00 a.m. saluting the flag as reville played.

Guess what?, I got a better handle on things .

I told the manager that I just want to work on Saturdays only, & let me tell you, it was the best idea I have ever had!!.

I have never been so happy about it.

After I clocked out, one of my co-workers looked at the small piece of paper & made fun of it, the fact that I only workd 7 hours the whole entire week.

I don't care, as long as I am hapy with it, that's all that matters any way!. =)

Aloha. =)

this morning's pet peeves for me...

- when people knock on your door with the lights closed and the sign "closed" on the door - and when you open the door they ask if you're open.
- when people talk too fast when leaving a voicemail and you can't understand them - and when you call them back you have to leave a voicemail with what you want from them.

- oh, and I almost forgot: people who wants to upgrade to the newest operating system on an old computer, and wondering why it can't work.

Awe shucks. Here I was hoping I could bring in an old 1987 Macintosh Plus so you folks could load OS X Tiger on it.

I've had customers on a full sprint from the parking lot attempt to slide into our store as the last customer walks out 10-minutes after our closing time. They make it in but we tell them we're closed. They get all upset. Hey we've been on our feet all friggin day and it's our time now. If there's anyone that should be mad it should be us. But because I try to do my best, I let the person in and give them excellent customer service and hold one cashier back to assist him on a sale. We've actually kept the store open an entire hour past closing just to help one customer. Talk about a loss, it took a cashier and an associate with a combined wage cost of around $20 for that hour to assist a customer who bought one pound of nails at under $5.

But hey he was happy and I told him to remember us the next time his friends bad mouth Home Depot. He smiled and he's one of our most nicest customers now.

Tell the guy to move up here next time! Our Home Depot (and our Lowes) is open 24x7! Somehow, I can't imagine anyone really having an urgent need to go buy a pound of penny nails at 4 a.m., though. What would anyone need from a hardware store at 2 in the morning? A new toilet plunger? Duct tape to patch a leaky hose?

Our Honolulu stores used to be 24x7 but for safety reasons the stores are closed for restocking. It's pretty dangerous to have forklifts and other lift equipment around customers and we've had our share of fatalities so we close our doors to allow for safe restocking of merchandise.

Whaddya mean Vista won't run on my Commodore 64? Oh, bother...

Of course, some might make note that Vista probably won't run on MOST PCs ... well, not for long, anyway.

I read that there is actually a decent business to be made at some of these hardware stores that run 24x7. Unexpected plumbing issues etc have handymen showing up at odd hours looking for parts for their customers.
