It's a little thing but it annoys me.

I hate it when I'm at work, and I answer the phone (Hello, KVAK Radio.) and the guy on the other end goes, "LAURIE."

Is it SO HARD to say, "Hi, may I speak to Laurie please?" or "Is Laurie there?"

So I offer to take a message, he says he'll call back, and I say, "Okay. Goodbye." and he goes,"GRUNT," and hangs up. THE HELL??? ARE YOU A FREAKING NEANDERTHAL?

And it's always the SAME FREAKING GUY.

It just IRRITATES me, is all.

I had a little bit of excitement today when I returned home from work. I opened my door to the squealing of my CO detector and a very strong gas smell. I called the fire department and the lady sent out the firemen (in a firetruck, even) and they deduced that my monitor stove vent was blocked with the heavy, wet snow we've recently gotten. I figured it was okay because the exhaust melts all the snow in front of the tube, but apparently the fresh air intake is around the outside of the pipe and so the intake wasn't getting any fresh air, just recycled exhaust.

Also, my Firefox won't let me post to my LJ! I had to open IE. Anyone else have that problem, or know why I'm having it?
