What problem did you run into today? Did something inconvenience you?

I'm going to start posting every inconvenience I come across even if it's dumb. I want to get better at seeing problems and needs, feel free to do the same.

I didn't have any bread in the morning, so i skipped it :p. lol

Breadminder app? App that reminds you to buy bread.

Bread.com
A one stop solution for all your bread needs. Types of breads you should be eating, full nutritional profiles of different breads, bread making tutorials, bread history :D

Being tailgated
-> Device which squirts water, if a car comes to close (based on speed). Right now I have to do that manually...

Smell of cigarettes (cold smoke) in used stuff I bought
-> No idea. Febreze?

Made an appointment at the mechanics, when I arrived on time they told me I have to wait 1h until my car will be serviced. What's the point of an appointment then!?
-> System which can predict the real waiting time based on history data and sends you live update, when it is really your turn (reduction of unnecessary waiting time)

Waiting in general. Traffic lights, supermarket, at the doctors etc. Have you noticed of how much waiting time there is in life?
-> Big Data / AI / *buzzwording intensifies*

Turns out raccoons broke into my roof... Again...

Theres this guy that sells predator urine. I bought some coyote pee and various accessories to try and scare them off but it didn't work, the raccoons don't care. I even live in a rural area with real coyotes around. But that's probably a Fastlane business for that guy - buys the urine from zoos and preserves that collect it anyway, bottles it up, makes some accessories with big margins... $$$! I wonder if he drives a yellow Lambo.

I'm starting a heat seeking water turret company now, no one steal my idea please :p

Today I'm inconvenienced by having always to use more and more PH Strips to keep our outdoor jacuzzi hottub running clean. I need an APP with or without a floaty longterm measurer to tell me what needs to be added to the jacuzzi.

Running Steam games on ubuntu
I know Steam Play exists but, as anything on linux, it doesn't work.

It would really be nice to have "one click and run" on linux
(That will take care of everything in one go)

Broken 3 Trailer Jack's in the past few months. The lever itself hangs to low and if driving offroad it can reach far enough down and bend the whole lever off.

Costs $80 for a new one. :(

Pediatricians. If someone could make a new parent’s life easier from a doctor standpoint.

Wasting hours and dealing with C0VlD bullshit regulations just to be told all is well, see you in two weeks, makes me wonder why I don’t drink more.

I think this is going to be a good thread honestly. It will be full of things an entrepreneur might be able to fix, unless they are bootlickers in masks, no one can help them. :rofl:

Saw a toddler in a stroller with a mask on her face. Her mom also had a mask. They were outside for a walk. Unbelievable.

I saw someone outside (alone) literally maybe 50m away from other people wearing a mask. lol, those people make me laugh, just the other day saw another bozo in his car with the windows down and a mask on (alone) ha!

Today my taxi inconvenienced me, yeh.. uber is so much better, unfortunately didn't have the app on my phone, honestly hope these taxi scum enjoy their bankruptcy. This guy was even dumber than me, asked him how much a taxi fare would be and he said there isn't a road to where I wanna go, lol!

I have driven there before multiple times....

But magically the road just disappeared I guess in his mind, asked him how long he has lived in Vancouver and he said a very long time, yet doesn't even know the area!!??

And he didn't even pickup my stuff to load in the car and had the audacity to ask me for a tip!!!!! OMG, on top of making we wait 30+ mins for this bozo.

I'm a very stupid person in general, but man It's amazing meeting someone even more stupid than me.

He even started the meter while I was putting my luggage in the car :shit:

How about another unscripted goal, I'm not sure how much money it would take, but just imagine....

Being chauffeured in a blacked out limousine with MJ driving while reciting unscripted part 2 :rofl: :rofl:What do you think the hourly rate would be for him to get up out of bed? $10k an hour? :happy:

I take a pill twice per day that’s very important for my health (I had brain - well, not brain but cranial - surgery a few years ago).

Every time I go out in the evenings I seem to forget to bring it, which is a big problem because I’ll start getting dizzy and have a headache.

A wallet, iPhone case, or something similar that can hold medicine would be very cool for me and a lot of folks. I have a small box I can bring but it’s just one extra thing to keep up with.

There are some options out there, but the ones I’ve seen on Amazon don’t seem very good.

Went to the Dentist today. Was told since need a deep clean for $420. Called good ol’ mom to tell her. She said no way should it cost that much and she’ll just gift me some money to go to her dentist. If I hadn’t called her, I for sure would have paid that amount.

A way of finding out pricing for certain dental procedures at different dentists with & without insurance and based on the type of insurance you have as well.

Wow I never knew dentists priced their services vastly differently from each other. I thought there was kind of standard

Needed to download 70 emails and print them to PDFs using gmail. I used this chrome extension Gmail Multi-Print

But Google blocked my account for 1 hour because it thought that I was a bot.

Hmmm.... Will we see the day when ONLY bots are allowed by default. Cause those "carbon based units" keep changing their minds!

Anything bureaucratic where you have to go in person. Government, bank, vehicle / licence, doctor (re-prescription), consulate (visa application), etc. I want a service where I can send a body in my place as me to do all that waiting and paperwork/questions drudgery for me.

I cannot begin to describe how much I despise that stuff and I try to avoid it at all costs. I would gleefully spend thousands of dollars a year for bureaucratic nonsense to not be a thing in my life.

1. My car emblem was replaced by the dealer (under warranty) and paint around it was damaged during the repair. Problem: non-mechanics trusting dealership to do good work, but how to verify? Are you being ripped off?

2. Ordered a pizza by phone for pick up. Phone order was sent to a different city. Lol. They were cool and comp’ed the order and fixed. But that resulted in me waiting for 20min, inconvenient.

3. When I run, I listen to audio books or music. Some books present great ideas I want to record, with no notepad on the run. Stopping and typing up sucks too... but losing a fact I want to use later or an idea for business is even worse. Inconvenience...

4. Local detailer for my cars had to shut down because of C0VlD (too few customers). Finding a new one is inconvenient. Expensive city for living means that detailing cars as a business is hard to do profitably, because warehouses are too expensive locally. Inconvenient for car owners like me.

5. Ordered replacement windows for my house, 5 week estimate and hard to reach supplier because order is too small for anyone to really care. Inconvenient for my renovation.

1. My crypto portfolio continues to haemmorage
2. I got C0VlD jab on Friday & I lack the energy to do anything except to respond to this posting as I sit & watch my crypto haemmorage.

(Fuming emoticon will not display here)....aarrgh!!
