    I jumped up when I did because I saw some of the other parents getting pretty upset and were about to tee off (the one girls mom was pretty livid). Since a lot of them are women, not white and/or both, I decided to say something first as a bit of a lightning rod knowing white male privilege would help mitigate consequences for me.

    I do like my daughters coach, he is a good teacher of the game but he is not a confrontational person (and he’s gotten railroaded before).

              We had it as a gym unit every year during the winter. I hated it with a passion. Just boring a_ss tennis.

                • Pickleball to me is similar to sandbags. It's fine if you're having playing while sipping cocktails with friends. Don't take it seriously or pretend it's an actual sport.

                  • My freedumb loving neighbor in the cul-de-sac over from me is grinding my gears. He's been casually launching fireworks for the last two hours, and my dogs have been basket cases the whole time (despite being hopped up on Trazadone) because every time they calm a little, he launches another two or three noisemakers, then silence for five/ten minutes.

                    • I set a hold with UPS for last week.
                      A delivery was attempted Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
                      Got a final attempt notice
                      now I have to spend an hour driving around town to pick up the package.

                      what the ****? Why wouldn't a delivery hold be honored?

                        Likely didn’t get placed in the system. If it had it would’ve popped up when it got scanned before being put on the truck. How exactly did you set the hold request?

                          • Meanwhile, I have a package being sent to me via FedEx that was supposed to get here a week ago but has been sitting in Memphis for a week instead without any updates, and since I'm not the shipper they won't tell me jack**** about it.

                            Even better is that the shipper made typos in my address, so if and when it ever shakes loose from Memphis, it'll most likely get delivery-errored and I'll have a tiny window to redirect it to a pick up center before it gets sent back to the shipper. Because I can't fix the address myself, only the shipper can (understandable), nor can I have it redirected to a pickup center before they try to deliver it at least once (less understandable).

                            • FedEx has gone from the world's best shipping and logistics company to one of the absolute worst.

                              I've had delivery exceptions because they have the damn box in Minneapolis by day 2 of a 5-7-day window and they'll let it sit in the warehouse until it's due.
