    I'll start (of course).

    Waiting on items from US eBay and tracking does not show where it is in AUS so have to wait for each day to see if it's @ Post Office Box.

    Thankfully though not all my salary goes on these needless items.

    Omg, I'm having the same problem! I ordered this really lovely glass-spun pen (https://www.popgrab.com/products/dip-glass-pen-ink-included?variant=314742145042) and while I have the tracking number, UPS says they don't have a label made so I'm not getting any updates and I wasn't given an ETA so I have no idea when I'm getting it :(

    EDIT: And now evidently it's $10 than when I ordered it. Because of course.

    Tech recruiters that try to talk down your salary requirements and treat you like a used car.

    Cheap pulp comics. I used to be able to buy 4 comics for a dollar and 10 packs of hockey cards for a dollar. I miss them. I miss the grain of them, the color palette of them, even the texture of the paper. Sports cards now are awful, glossy things, instead of pulp cardboard and stale, foul stick of gum. The gum would make the cards smell delicious. I miss them.

    The art of roleplay in MMOs. It's gone. Even the oldest, traditional RP servers of WOW are devoid of good RP. I miss it.

    I miss the Virtue server on City of Heroes.

    Bots, sock puppets and social media fakery, it's distorting everything...and news media seems most vulnerable to picking up "trends" that are largely fabricated or magnified with a lot of fake BS accounts. Social media in general seems to have totally jumped the shark.

    Bad coffee. There's no excuse for bad coffee in 2018.

    To make it a first world problem, it would be "I don't have toilet paper in this bathroom." Haha.

    Not seeing the TLJ more time because the cinema times aren't convenient.

    - The left front tire of my 2004 Dodge Neon has a slow leak, I need to get off my ass and get it to the tire shop and get it fixed.

    - Meeting someone new, finding out they are a fan of Star Wars......and then finding out they hate everything about LFL and feel it was ruined by Disney.....

    - My new laptop (Acer Aspire E15) has a maddening intermittent issue with Windows 10, the start button/Cortana/MS Edge/MS Store all fail to operate. Nothing happens when I click on any of them....the only way to fix it is to log back in, selecting administrator rights, which causes a restart....and it is fixed.

    That is all I need to get off my chest right now....

    My most highly functioning laptop is currently in pieces, waiting for a replacement part.

    I scratched the top of my new wood desk.

    I need a second string for my recurve bow.

    My air freshener smells like baby powder.

    @Master_Rebado What is LCS? For me that acronym means "Liquid Cooling System" like on the E-3 Sentry aircraft we get parts for in my job.....here is a picture of one.
