I HATE IT WHEN......

.......you're doing your TQOTD, and the time is counting down, you don't know the answer, but you finally just click one while there's a little bit of red left. It changes the screen after you click, and you come up with the right answer but it still says you exceeded the time limit.

Bogus, dude.

I hate it when I get a showdown question that I know the answer to immediately, and click the correct answer in what seems like the fastest possible time, only to lose to someone whose time seems slower.

I also hate it when Andy opens his TQsOTD after a week and has 4 vocabularies (that he never bets on) while I get science day after day.

Just happened to me - mine happen with more than just a little bit though - I had 10 seconds left - reported again - seems to come and go in spurts - I try to take a different times of the day - like this am when there are less players online - didn't seem to matter

I got it right too - but no wager - Movies & TV - which is the only other category I might be inclined to wager on...Vocab is MIA again for me

I feel your pain. I thought this problem only happened to those of us with webtv, but I guess it happens to all of us.

I am about 10 days away from getting my first laptop computer ever, and I am curious to see if this is stil a problem.

That is sooo funny, Lodi! My son hates that song - kids are such homophobes! And Katy Perry is seeing the lead singer of Gym Class Heroes so she probably doesn't make a habit of kissing girls anyway. Lodi, when your kids are jamming do you ever sing their songs with them? So much fun to have aspiring rock star kids!

You know, I haven't sang along with them. I usually sit there with a stupid grin on my face and tears welling up in my eyes.

They have some performances in September at the Spokane Interstate Fair. Maybe I'll embarrass them by singing and dancing along with their music.

Lodi - Do your kids want to be famous? My son does. There's a really cool program that you can buy and download for the kids so that they can write music called Guitar Pro - don't know if they are into that kind of thing yet. My son loves it. And just wait until your children sing and play a song that they wrote - talk about tears! If you think they would like that program, you can pm me with your address and I can burn a copy of ours and send it to you!

Oh - keeping with the thread - I hate when I have my Special K with red berries and when I get towards the bottom - no berries! Just bland flakes - I hate that!

I hate it when the Olympics have on basketball and hours and hours of boxing when there is so much other great stuff happening we will never see.

And...I really hate it when a pig in a Hummer flys by me in the drenching rain and blinds me. A###holes!

Now see BBear....
It was only yesterday that I realized why I was so exceptionally frustrated the other day.
It's because The Olympics have superceded BOTH of my favorite shows, one of which is
usually on EVERY DAY....
I don't discriminate between Sports....hate them all !!!!

I hate it when I go to finish a tournament thinking I have til 1pm EST and at 7:00 am EST it's been ended
I went to finish the 50's tourney with just a couple more to take of the "whew" 20 - and find it's ended and I had 100%...sent in support ticket and reported to bugs the tourney states at the time of this posting " Ended: August 15, 1pm EST " - but don't know that anything can be done....I don't know if this has happened before as I haven't experienced it - and of course I'll get over it - but made me really unhappy at the time.

I hate it when someone posts something like "I totally agree with Jane" but there is no screen-name of Jane-anything on that thread, and no one has signed a post with the real name of Jane.

I have no idea which player's real name is Jane so I have no idea with whom you are agreeing! Why can't we all just use the user names that appear on the posts?? I have a very bad memory for names and am currently trying to remember about 100 new names and faces as this is the start of yet another new school year. I don't need the frustration of trying to remember hundreds of real names with NO faces for my cyber friends!

Thanks Dolores (or whatever your name is who started this thread - I can't remember who started this thread even by screen name now, since I'm on the composing page...) for giving me a chance to vent this small pet peeve!

They really are fantastic, Lisa! I made my son watch some videos and I'm betting he's wishing he didn't cut his hair off. But the long haired rock star image is pretty hard to pull off when you have big blue eyes and are covered in freckles.

I'll try to post some video after they perform in Spokane next month. Their band's style is a little different than your son's band. They play some 80's stuff (Scorpions, Journey), and some more modern stuff (Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Paramour, etc.)

Anyhoo, thanks for the links - they are awesome!

Cool Lodi.. I'd say thanks but, I can't take any credit (or can I - music has been a huge influence in our household - and my name is Lisa and I'm a groupie lol... there, I said it lmao)

He started off with the drums at age 11, went to guitar, keyboards, bass .. did his co-op at a recording studio .. anything to do with the music industry and his eyes are alight.

I can't wait to see your son's videos.. tell him I'm in the front row, cheering him on in spirit!!

oh.. right.. this is a "I hate it when" thread....

I hate it when people veer off the subject of the thread lol
