Warning, I fav and maybe boost every. single. cat. I see.

remembering how an old acquaintance would use some shitty antivirus's free 1 month trial. when the trial ran out rather than simply getting a crack, purchasing a license, or going without it, he would wipe his hard drive and reinstall windows. every 30 days he did this

Addressing SWMBO as "Mz. Firstname Lastname" in my instant messaging texts and signing with "Sincerely, Myfirstname Mylastname" and driving her to rage-quit the instant messaging text window FTW.

After dropping too much $ on a Ubiquiti Amplifi "Whole-House" router, I am down too much $ but up pretty decent wifi coverage for my,,, whole house.
