A very petty grievance here -- I don't think I've ever been able to use a crazy glue type adhesive more than one time. Might as well just throw it out after that. Today I hunted the garage shelf for the "instant Krazy Glue - one drop applicator - stay fresh container - protective storage case". There it is! All right! Use the little pin to poke open the snout. Nothing. And I've only had it 3 or 4 years.

We've had that happen with every single container. The other day DH bought another for something he is doing .. this one has a brush applicator like nail polish .. boy I can see how this one will end

You got that right, Tin. Maybe it needs to be sold "by the drop". Of course, mine also is only 4 or 5 years old.

Hair Color. You'd think by now they would have come up with some kind of fragrance that's pleasant instead of that horrible smell ... ugh !!

The newest bottle I've bought has lasted through 6-10 uses! It seems to have some sort of corkscrew thing going on inside of it. It sucks the glue back down to the bottom of the bottle as soon as you set it upright. Bf was even using it to glue rockets together, and kept forgetting it open, sitting upright on the table. Still working fine! It's "loctite" brand super glue. Red label, black top. I don't think I've ever seen a bottle last through more than a couple uses.

Since exposing super glue to oxygen is what makes it cure.. more than one or two uses and you are good.. thats why the bottles are so small...

Thanks Skittle .. I will have to look for that brand. I just checked the bottle he bought with the brush and it's already seized up after only one use.

Pet peeve that is driving me nuts: Since when is "gifted" a word?!? Hate it! What's wrong with "give" and its tenses? "I gave my niece a gift." "I was given a present." Works just fine. argh

I agree. Our language is changing. not always in ways we like.

I HATE waiting!

Yesterday I waited all day for a package which was to be delivered by Fedex.

Last evening when I checked the tracking, there was a message that they couldn't get into the building. It was time stamped 5:53 p.m.

I can understand that the security guard may have been away from his station, restroom break, unlocking an apartment for a forgetful resident, etc., but no residents around to open the door for the Fedex delivery person??????? There are 300+ apartments here! At that time of day there should have been a few around.

Now I get to wait all day again! GRRRRRRRrrrrrrr!!!!
