More frustration than peeve, my wife’s RAV4 would not start last night. It’s been sitting in the driveway since Sunday. Message said “Smart Key System Malfunction”. So it’s either both sets of keys need new batteries (my keys didn’t work either) or a 12 volt battery problem (at 7000 miles??) or something else. After researching on line it seems to be a major issue with their Hybrid SUVs. 
Dealer service was clueless and has to wait for a response from the mother ship.
 

Combine that with having to deal with automated systems (combination of on phone and on line) getting towing. I still had to call the driver to explain my address since Google seems confused (new sub, construction). Things are not supposed to be this complicated 

 

It did turn out to be a glitch related to communications. Primarily in the SOS software that constantly communicates with the car (another way they’re keeping tabs on you). Something got hung up and drained the battery. Software update, battery recharge. Hoping nothing similar happens during a trip to Houghton the end of June.

UPDATE:  Company could not have been better in handling this.  New parts are on the way.  Wonderful job so far. 

Isn't it great when companies stand behind their stuff & don't treat you like an insolent punk?

It is.   But the emails I sent were very very respectful and nice.  I think that helps.   I think that often you get what you give.  Except for WOW. I  have been nice to them and they still screw me.

It is amazing...had an arborist out yesterday.  3 separate jobs...2 were fine, the third was not so great.  I get in touch with them expecting a fight...they are sending the crew back out today.  Sigh of relief...

So an actress named JoJo Siwa got a scene cut from a movie where she kissed a guy -  because she thinks it's morally wrong that she had to kiss a guy in the part when she is gay in real life and madly in love with her girlfriend. 

YOU ARE AN ACTOR !   YOU ARE FAKING IT !  STOP WHINING.  IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO KISSING SCENES WITH GUYS THEN DON'T TAKE PARTS WHERE YOU KISS GUYS ! 

Mark Ruffalo is straight,  he kissed a guy for a movie.     Bruce Willis & Cybil Shepherd hated each other, I mean HATED each other......They kissed frequently in Moonlighting.  

IT'S CALLED ACTING 

Last I checked Christian Bale is not an actual serial killer (he's a dick, but no killing that we know of).  Matt Damon has never been to Mars, Kevin Kline is not an inept CIA-agent wannabe and Bryan Cranston has never cooked meth.

People with daughters may understand this one better.   Jojo is a tween star that dances and sings and appears as herself in various shows.  She has a brand that just prints money.  She’s not the same kind of actor that all the others listed are.   She doesn’t need to play a role to get kids to suck money from their parents pocket to support her.   She can just show up and the kids follow.   It may be crazy and it’s probably short lived but this girl can call whatever shots she wants at this point.   She’s a money making machine and that is of course the goal of all entertainment.

She also was dating a guy like 7 months ago and has only had her first gf since January. Given that she's only like 18 or 19, I find it hard to believe she was really so revolted by the idea of kissing a guy. Sounds more like a young girl who doesn't really get what acting is and did something dumb. It happens. Any studio hiring her for a similar role in the future will set her straight on pulling such a dumb move or she won't get the part. Or she can simply not take the part.

Again, this makes more sense if you have kids that idolize her.  She’s an anomaly from most other actors.  She calls the shots now and any studio will do whatever she wants no matter how dumb.   Nothing last forever especially for teenage stars and she’s very close to aging out of her demographic.  She will have to figure out what she wants to do in the future.   She’s made enough money to retire at 19 but if she does continue then she will have to rebrand and then will have to fall in line with all the rules and expectations.  Definitely won’t be able to pull that stuff but now she can.

Pet Peeve?  That Bet Rivers guy pointing at me at the top of every page. 

I am already sick of sports gambling ads and it hasn't even been a year. 

The Fan Duel ad seems to play before every you tube video and every commercial break on TV.  

My wife has a friend who struggles with a gambling addiction.  She said it's **** right now.

We did a quick run up 75 to the UP this week. It seems that 90% of the billboards on I75 are either gambling or marijuana related. 

Realtors up here are going all in to try to capture the business of pot dispensaries. To see their billboards is hilarious. 

"#1 realtors for marijuana businesses" with a cheesy looking couple standing back to back.
