Fedex and UPS drivers regularly throw packages over the fence of my closed patio on the street side of my townhouse. The actual entrance is through the courtyard in the back. I don't use my patio often, so packages can sit there for months.

'So why don't you check the patio when you are expecting packages?' I hear you ask.

Because I'm not expecting packages. The dumbfuck delivery drivers keep bringing packages for the complex next door. I am at Unit YY, ##3# This Street and I keep getting packages for Unit YY, ##4# This Street.

I remember people posting videos of the FedEx truck standing in front of their house for a few minutes and then moving on without anyone getting out because it was 10O out and the driver didn't want to get out of his warm truck.
You can find them for USPS as well. Nice days, too. They just stop, look at the house with the car in the driveway or other signs of resident presence, then drive on after marking "Not home".

I cleaned the kitchen floor this morning. Unfortunately, I had run out of cleaner, so I used a tiny amount of Pine Sol (2 capfulls). Now the whole downstairs stinks of that stuff. Ugh.

First of all 2 capfulls of Pine Sol in your basic bucket is the standard amount. And second, the pleasin' odour's half the point.

It's just brilliant that Apple puts the dictation options in the Keyboard preferences, and not in, say, the dictation portion of Accessibility, where I logically looked getting more and more frustrated and angry until googling. WTF.
