There Is No Escape

I am now forced to not hate on iphone users as much, because instead of just hearing the stupid marimba and eardrum-violating ding sound from those phones, we are all now subjected to my new most-hated sound: the Samsung/Android whistle sound.

Up until a few minutes ago, I was blaming Apple (again) for coming up with yet another sound for assholes everywhere to all simultaneously check their phones on account of. This is mostly because aside from the one-off ringtone or notification, almost all of my most hated sounds come from Apple, and apparently some people who use these phones somehow act as though no one else can hear the crap coming out of their phones.

I was forced to spread my disgust evenly between all phone users this morning when I discovered the actual source of this most irritating off all sounds. It's more provocative than the random song blasting from a tiny speaker, the grossly loud old telephone ring, the ubiquitous old iphone elevator-like bong, marimba ringtone, and brain-piercing newer ding notification.

Whoever made this piece of trash and thought it was a good idea to further the cause of whistling in public and subjecting us all to this irritating turd should be forced to listen to it endlessly until they agree to remove it from every phone on earth, at their own expense. Yes, I said whistling in public sucks. If you're mostly alone or in an open area outdoors, it may be okay, but otherwise, help your fellow society members and shut the hell up. No one wants to hear you whistle, or hear your phone make noises, or hear your fucking phone whistle -- over and over.

The Renfe train between cities in Spain can travel at over 300 km/h (181 mp/h).

It's pitiful how people in Texas and elsewhere is the US won't allow people to have high-speed rail. Texas Central Railway is trying to build it privately, and people are still trying to stop it.

I wouldn't necessarily attribute their high unemployment to the lack of economic stimulus by the intercity train system.

Bad customer service. Called, Rob suggested I bring in my glasses. I took them in and the person helping me noted they would need to check on replacement parts availability, and suggested I call back. Called back a week later and Rob had apparently heard nothing about this, and suggested I bring them in again and didn't even bother taking model information from me or trying to rectify the situation. No thanks.

The food and other diners were great at the hibachi, but unfortunately my wife and I got DRA, presumably from the fried rice being too oily, or undercooked seafood.

A nice place, good service , but I got FOOD POISONING from the grilled trout. I woke up a few hours after eating the whole fish with a fever, vomiting, etc., and wasn't fully well until roughly 24 hours later. Even if I lived in Budapest, I wouldn't return for the rest of my life.

Missing package, at least four days overdue. I called to check on it on Monday, 7/28 at 2:10pm, and the woman working there responded by stating "If you didn't get it, we didn't receive it." I asked if she could check to see if the package was there, and she put me on hold indefinitely (over 20 minutes). I've been here a few times for other things and everything's gone well. New keys for the house, etc.

Seller operated under the Independence Firearms name when I made this purchase. Purchased a weapon at a gun show, only to find defects. My receipt stated I should refer to the weapon's manufacturer after 30 days after purchase, which implies I had other options during that time period. I was not told during the sale that I could or could not return or exchange the weapon. I was told by the owner that because the weapon was purchased at a gun show that I had no other option than to refer to the manufacturer, even though it hasn't been 30 days. No other services to rectify the defects were offered (gunsmithing) by the owner, although his employee recommended the in-house gunsmith and was helpful enough to double-check with the owner and call me back, as she originally stated the weapon could be returned, exchanged or consigned. If I was to arrive at the store after travelling over 100 miles only to find I was given incorrect information, I would definitely be leaving a worse review. The owner was only helpful enough to tell me that I had no options.I have nothing against the establishment due to its policies -- I seriously don't expect everyone I deal with to go out of their way to suck up to customers and do anything to make them happy -- and I don't have extensive experience dealing with gun dealers and shows, but I wouldn't recommend it and won't be returning.

They were nice and helpful, but the opthamologist/optometrist got my prescription wrong the first time, so I had to return. On the second visit my glasses weren't ready. I'm not sure if my input during the exam wasn't that great, but my prescription doesn't seem strong enough and I still have problems reading some text at distances of even 10-15 feet as well as road and freeways signs when driving. I won't be returning.
