But that's it. He's for it, if it doesn't cost him anything.
It's like his position on the Wall "let Mexico pay for it"

If there's four different electrical devices plugged into a power board and you're finished using one of them then switch off that one item instead of unplugging the power board. Especially if any of the other devices are being used by other people.

I was browsing the internet when my connection dropped out completely because one of my housemates switched off the power board that the router was plugged into. They'd been using a lamp and I guess they couldn't be bothered reaching over to switch off the lamp when the power board was closer. Thanks.


Edit: before anyone asks: yes, it was the same housemate who accidentally unplugged the fridge the other month.

Does this housemate understand how electricity works? I.e. things have to be plugged in to work.

Yeah but it looks like she struggles with the whole "Things that are already plugged in might be plugged in for a reason" concept.

To all the candidates running for county council seats: you don't have to bother putting your party affiliation on your campaign literature/placards. Everybody knows there's only one party in this county! Save your printer ink.

ETA: President Trump, don't be surprised when someone you fired writes a tell-all book and goes on the talk show circuit. That person is no longer under your control and can tell the world what s/he really thinks of you.

From your posts, I would say the issue is "things that I didn't plug in aren't important" selfishness.

Hey mister, revolving doors are a team effort. You don't get to stop pushing just cause I got in and started pushing along with you.

I really felt like stopping pushing and trapping him in there (briefly, I know.. he did know how to push).

Oh well, better than the giggling young woman that jumped into my quadrant of the revolving door. Um, no room for 2. Hadn't she ever seen a door like this before (she had at least once when entering the building)

Once a woman in front of me in a revolving door caught a glimpse of herself, apparently noticed a stray hair sticking up, and briefly stopped walking as she reached up to tidy it. Fortunately she realized her mistake almost immediately.
