The BF Whine Thread

I wish people wouldn't drive 25 mph in front of me my whole way home. I have to drive 9 miles on a two-lane country road with no passing zones anywhere along the way. The speed limit is 35-45 but there is always some yahoo driving 25 the whole way... It drives me insane!

My brother runs an upscale bar where I have tasted $500 bottles before. Meh. Grape juice is much better.

Overpricing = More than you want to pay?

If they get it, it's not overpriced...it's going rate. Also, if you want it, it's not junk.

naw, not going rate. I'm talking about those $100~$200 bikes, parts, etc. which are clearly only worth $50~75 and are repeatedly posted within the same month.

I have a great whine...................

I have a headache that won't quit, and a sore butt! My ears are still ringing, too. Never fall as hard as I did on Sunday.
