    I have an infestation of drain flies. I keep hitting the drain with baking soda + vinegar, plus boiling water throughout the day. wake up in the AM to another 5-6 flies chilling on the ceiling of the kitchen. Not sure where else they are laying eggs. they are winning the battle but they will not win the war.

    Like regular house flies or those little tiny sewer flies with comically big wings?

    hmm after a quick google, it's not the moth-like ones with big wings, which i think are drain flies. maybe a phorid fly?

    have only noticed them in the kitchen, but will give that a shot also

    Vinegar and baking soda did the trick. You can also buy these traps. Doesn’t fix the problem but it helps. Link is from Amazon but you can get them at most grocery stores or THD

    Yeah I had that problem one time when I was in a basement apartment. You basically have to do every drain until it stops. I only used boiling water. One pot per drain until they disappeared

    I stopped smoking weed about 4 months ago. I smoked almost every day for like 15 years, figured it was time to stop. Haven't really had much cravings.

    But every now and then, like when it's raining outside or I had a productive day, and I know my entire night is just going to be chilling on the couch watching sports -- I really, really miss it.

    Just needlessly dragging it out. It's not even the segment length, just a very 2000s and early 2010s way of doing annoying radio storytelling. NPR still does this,

    "Dick has been on a multi-year mission to track down the source of this holding music."

    *At Dick's house with a microphone shoved a quarter-inch inside the vacuum"
    *EXTREMELY LOUD VACUUM NOISES*

    "YA KNOW I REALLY WISH I COULD HEAR THIS MUSIC WHILE I VACUUM MY HOUSE FIVE TIMES A DAY HEHHEH"

    Good for you. Just an idea but set aside each month the typical amount you would spend on weed and invest it. Benefit double from quitting.

    So twice in the last week, the same incident has occurred at 2 different retailers, Lowes and today Costco.

    I be shopping. At Lowes I was actively grabbing putting stuff and putting it in my cart when a forklift rounds the corner preceded by a guy with a flag. He was actively telling people to leave the aisle, they could not continue to shop until they were done forklifting. I politely declined and said I was going to finish grabbing my last couple things and move along. Dude got an attitude, I ignored him, and was leaving the aisle 30 seconds later with what I needed.

    Today at Costco. I had entered the cooler and had made my way to back corner, this is a business location and the cooler is huge. Sure enough, just as I make my first meat selection, I hear a beeping and here comes the dude with the flag followed by the forklift. There are like 6 different aisles so I did not move until they got close to me because I did not know where they were going. He not so politely tells me I need to move out of the way as they were going through. I pulled my cart into the aisle next to the one I was on so they could pass through. Yeah, they didn’t. They set their little tapes up and proceed to do their thing. So hear I am, 10 minutes later, freezing my butt off at this point and so I step under the tape and 1 foot to my right which puts me outside the cooler. I did this when the forklift just got to the other end of the aisle and would not be returning for a minute.

    Man, you should have seen the attitude the little flag dude who was on his phone the entire time came out with.

    All my previous experiences have been partially block aisle to let people finish but no new come in. Let forklift in when all are gone. Do forklift shit. Open aisle back up when done.

    What is normal? I know why it is done from a safety standpoint. But from a customer interaction standpoint? Telling customer to basically fuck off is the new normal for customer service?

    You should understand the customer is always wrong and unimportant. There’s plenty of you and limited flaggers to hire. Know your spot in the food chain.

    As a former forklift driver, it’s always the little man syndrome guy sporting the flag that has the attitude. It’s like their one job and they take it suuuuuper seriously. The drivers dgaf because A.) they’re in a union or B.)know they are getting paid by the hour
