The fact that my computer is now so old and slow and browsers are now such memory-hogs, that listening to music while browsing the internet is now a difficult chore for me.

When people hit "Reply to All" on media text messages.
My guitarist is always sending goofy pictures out to multiple people, and I am ALWAYS getting texts from unknown numbers responding to it.

I hate that my job gives me shitty hours which makes living at home suck because I can't get my mom off my back sometimes.

I wish I could just find a decent full time job that would give me a steady schedule.

We could probably have a sub-'hate' thread that's dedicated to just discussing our jobs, the economy, unemployment, how job searching sucks, what we hate about our jobs, etc.

Canon's dumb as fuck "Canon Image Gateway" thing to upload photos to your computer wirelessly. It's awesome...when it's not down.

Where do you work and how do they schedule you?

You're young, so finding something steady will eventually happen. Some places don't like to schedule younger people steadily since they're seen as inexperienced and unreliable. I'm not saying that's what you are but unfortunately that's how it goes at many places.

I work for CVS Pharmacy as a Pharmacy Technician.

I have open availability and THERE IS NO RHYME OR REASON FOR MY HOURS! They change every fucking week almost.

Also I've been at the job for a year and half and they know I'm good and theres only like 7 people in the pharmacy anyway.

I'm getting totally disillusioned with modern metal fans. Reading the Dragonforce thread on MA gives me a headache. I also can't deal with how many terrible bands get praise (looking at you Iron Dogs and Ranger (Ranger isn't terrible, but they steal riffs and aren't that interesting)), while less original yet better bands get slagged on constantly (Skull Fist, Cauldron, etc.). I'm 100% convinced it's a popularity thing. I know people say that it's not about how obscure a band is, but it most definitely is.

Even browsing /r/powermetal, you can see how there are quite a few people who hate Dragonforce yet love power metal, even though Dragonforce is just a faster, more intense, catchier version of 99% of power metal. HammerFall is another casualty, but I've given up on people liking them. Metal should be fun, and those bands make it fun, but that's no grvm enough.

This is actually the one reason I love that I run a 'zine, because even though nobody agrees with most of my opinions, I feel they're pretty worthwhile. Songwriting, memorability, and quality riffs > everything else in metal. Ironically, I actually have a buddy at school that has almost identical taste to what I like (he likes more doom and less power metal than I do, but we worship most of the same bands otherwise).

Except most of those bands, DragonFall, Skull Fist and Cauldron included, don't have any of these things.
