Rants!

My rantings…

I Hate People, Especially My Neighbor Now

what

I hate people, especially my neighbor, he egged my van.

This morning I took my son to school and noticed someone egged his car, whatever not my problem. We live on a main avenue and our vehicles have been egged, hit, hit with paintballs, flat tires, mirrors knocked off, keyed and my favorite was when someone loosened all the lug nuts on my front passenger tire and I almost wrecked.His car being egged, well, I didn’t think anything of it at all and went about my business.

A few hours later he gets company and they tell him his car got egged. I know this because our houses are only about 10 feet apart and the windows were open, I could hear everything plain and clear. The whole conversation. He proceeds to automatically blame me and he also has a truck that apparently had gotten flat tires and other damage done to it, and he blames me for that too it seems.

I don’t know the guy, don’t know his name, he’s rarely home. Spoke to him once this summer and asked him to keep the noise down as he had people over and was outside with them and it was about 12:30am and my wife gets up at 5am and I do to as my son was going to summer camp early in the morning. I asked him to keep it down and they got quiet and that was the end of it, it was all good or so I thought.

Apparently this guy blames me for all this shit going on. he’s not worth my time or energy, and why the hell am I getting blamed?

Seriously, I must attract assholes for whatever reason. I don’t bother anyone, I try not to even leave the damn house unless I absolutely have to.

So I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to do now. I did go to the police and they said there’s nothing they can do as there’s no proof, just a REALLY big coincidence that my van gets egged right after he blames me for his car getting egged.The officer understood and yeah he thinks the guy egged my van, but there’s nothing he can do about it without proof.

Life sucks, I just want to be left alone really….

Threatened with Violence for Not Saying ‘Thank You’ Loud Enough

what

I hate going out and dealing with people anymore, most everyone I meet is rude and ignorant and just doesn’t care about anyone but themselves and they feel entitled to just whatever and everything.

I went to Dollar Tree the other day to pick up a few things and I use a cane to walk, it sucks, but I have to and this guy held the door open for me and I said thanks, didn’t yell it or anything but apparently it wasn’t loud enough for him.

He followed me into the store and got behind when I was getting a cart and he was mumbling about how I was rude and how I could have at least said thank you to him for holding the door open for me. I did say thanks, guess he didn’t hear me, guess it wasn’t loud enough. Not sure what exactly he wanted from me, to yell it out so everyone heard that he was this wonderful person for holding the door open for me?!

I said ‘excuse me, but I did say thank you, I guess you didn’t hear me say it, and I’m sorry it wasn’t loud enough for you’

He proceeds to threaten to punch me in the head because I was being rude to him and that I should have said it louder so he heard it.

Since when do people have to be praised loudly for doing something decent for a fellow human being?

What kind of society have we become that I’m going to get threatened with physical violence for not saying thank you loud enough?

I hate going out, I hate people more and more everyday…..

Scam Number: 1-520-210-0631

what

I don’t know why we have the do not call list anymore, I keep getting numerous calls per day from all sorts of scam numbers. I’m on both the state and federal do not call lists but these calls just continue everyday.

I haven’t been posting them here but I think I’ll start again to let other people know about them.

caller id on this one says ‘Customer Service’ and I got one yesterday that said said customer service as well but it was a different number.

I don’t know what to do anymore, I’m just sick of them calling all the time, it’s everyday, multiple times per day. I think I got 6 of them yesterday.

I Hate People

what

Some say that ‘hate’ is a strong word, but that’s how I feel really. I was told by someone I know that I’m a misanthrope and the dictionary says that is: “a person who dislikes humankind and avoids human society” and yeah that’s me for sure. I wasn’t always like that but I’ve been fucked over so many times by people I trusted and thought were friends that I’m just done.

Netflix Recommendation Algorithm Gone Awry

So I was checking out the new stuff on Netflix and noticed something a bit odd or off with the Netflix recommendation algorithm.. They have those ‘because you watched’ sections with things that are supposed to be related to what you watched and you might enjoy as they are similar.. Well I came across these rather odd ones that just don’t look right to me…

So because I watched The Exorcism of Molly Hartley Netflix thinks I might like these:

netflix

Because I watched Uncommon Valor… the Penguins move I might see as being related, but the others?

netflix2

Because I watched The Relic… Book was much better, but movie was ok, but I don’t think Chicken Little could be called a horror movie or have anything in common with The Relic?!

netflix3

Yes I watched Little Dead Rotting Hood, it was meh, I was bored and looking fro something different… but somehow I don’t think Tarzan, Nutjob and The Little Prince are related at all to Little Dead Rotting hood…

Hmmm… something just might be broke over at Netflix, it could be me, but I don’t know, these recommendations just seem a little off to me…

Why is it so Hard to Play Blu-Rays on Windows?

what

I just want to watch my blu-rays while I’m writing. I have four monitors, I use the center and left for work, and then the right one for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Blu-Rays and DVDs and then the 4th is a small one for just other stuff.

Why is it so hard to play blu-rays on Windows, not even just Window 10, I had problems on 8, 7, and Vista and all of them really as far back as I can remember. Yes everything is updated, all drivers, etc and my computer is more than capable of playing blu-rays. I’ve got a Core i7 4790K CPU with 16gb of ram, R9 280 and 7870 video cards, more than enough to play a blu-ray for sure.

I have Power DVD 15 and I have Nero 15 Ultimate Edition, both of which are supposed to play blu-rays. I can’t remember the last time I could play a blu-ray with Nero, I’ve tried and tried but it just won’t work, it gives me some BS error about cannot play this media and of course tells me to upgrade my drivers and blah, blah, blah, all of which is done already.

I’ve uninstalled and re-installed too many times to count and yes everything is up to date.

Yesterday I watched a couple blu-rays, today I popped a blu-ray in with Power DVD and got a black screen with sound. I tried another one and got picture but it was horribly distorted and pixelated. It’s a fairly new disc so it’s not damaged and it plays fine in my Xbox One and PS3. What happened between today and yesterday? Nothing at all, I went to sleep and woke up to it not working.

I paid for Power DVD 15, but then Power DVD 16 came out like a week later which pissed me off quite a bit actually, but whatever on that.

I have two Blu-ray players, Samsung and Lite-On, both do the same thing as to errors and not playing so it’s not the hardware.

Why is it so hard to watch what I paid for on my computer?

I’ve got a plethora of HDMI cables, switched them out, tried on different monitors and same thing.

Why is it so hard to just play a blu-ray on Windows?
