    A few recent threads have me thinking there is no "problem" too trivial to pass up ranting on.

    Let's just get them off our chests right now.

    Sympathetic ears await...
  2. Our office's glass windows face South and on hot days the AC can't keep up and it gets to 76° in here! I wear cargo shorts and a t-shirt! (Cargo shorts are accepted in the office!)

    They caught that alligator in a Chicago lagoon last night. I liked that alligator...

    The flats on a Jazz bass I recently acquired are stiffer and heavier than the TI's and EB Cobalts which I normally use, but they were new, the seller said, and it rubs me the wrong way to replace them.

    They cause undue hand fatigue though, so it limits my practice time with that bass.

    My 18 year old Toyota truck is starting to give me problems! I'd buy a new one but I want a manual transmission and they are all automatics now and I don't like the TV screen that all new vehicles have.

    I have an overabundance of possible TB avatar material to work with. Having to choose just one can be mildly frustrating for nearly 10 seconds.

    Sometimes I struggle for upwards of 15 seconds trying to decide which bass I'm going to noodle on today. It's very debilitating. (Minor side-rant: Big Pharma has not developed a medication for this affliction.)

    There is a tiny finish ding in the back of my boutique bass’s neck. Sometimes I can feel it with my thumb.

    I also have enough nice basses that I sometimes have difficulty picking which one to use on a gig. Maybe we need a support group. Oh, wait, we're here.

    The pool at my hotel this week is STILL CLOSED even after my last visit, so I brought my trunks for no reason.
    I feel so empty.

    I purchased a new cell phone cover last week because I liked the paisley design. (Why I had to purchase a phone is a whole nother 1WP)

    When the cover arrived I noticed the sides were white instead of a continuation of the paisley design.

    You ask "why is this a problem?"

    My wife's phone cover is white too so she started mistaking my phone for her phone and texting from my phone.

    This lead to my next problem: I wanted to keep my paisley cover so how was I going to cover the white sides?

    Fortunately I found a black Sharpie oil-based ink marker where the ink would stick to plastic.

    FYI: I also picked up a white one as well. This one has more of a pen based tip.

    These are awesome because the ink sticks to metal, smooth plastic, glass, vinyl, rubber and leather.

    So now I can permanently label all kinds of stuff that I couldn't before.

    FTR: Here's a pic of the offending cover. I hope u like it too:
