I did. A chocolate milkshake from Burger King.

Haha. I got the same thing, from the same place after mine. 

Edit: You know what? Since it came up, I'm gonna bitch about it. 7 years later and I still can't help it.

At the time I was working Panama Shift. And getting all of my wisdom teeth removed came with 3 days of con leave. So if my scheduled appointment had ended up on a good Friday, I would've had Wed/Thurs off, teeth removed Friday, and not worked again until the next Wednesday. But unlucky me, the only appointment available was on the opposite Friday. So I worked that Wed/Thurs, got my teeth removed Friday, and was back on rotation that Monday. 

Edit 2: Panama Shift is glorious.

When I got my braces off, it was time for apples, corn on the cob and honey - all I had been denied.

People who, in writing, use "are" in place of "our".

And people who write "should of" when it is "should have." That deserves capital punishment.

But how do you know all of these are small? :P Maybe there all tall people among them.

When I hear or see someone use "was" when it should be "were," I feel like something just broke in my eyeball. 

 

Oh, and where I live now, I've heard some folks pronounce "wash" as "warsh." Bleh.

Rein and reign, they don't mean the same thing people!   I even saw rain once where reign should have been written.      Yikes

People that drive too fast. People that drive too slow.

hahaha, I've said it before, there's no way better to pi** people off than by driving at the speed limit. Funny, that.

It was reigning the other day when I seized the rains of my horse, while waving around my $20 depicting Elizabeth II, who reins over Australia.

There’s a commercial I currently hate (the hate changes with fresh new horrors), one for life insurance. The father in a family has died, mom is filled with worry, not unexpected, worried for their two boys, worried about being able to keep the house. Mom asks younger son where older son is. Older son has been sneaking off at night, biking into town - he has gotten a job so he can hand over his paycheck to save the house! But in the meantime, the mail comes, and there’s a check! “It’s ok, honey, dad took care of it!”

WTF? She didn’t know he had life insurance? He went and got life insurance in secret? In my experience, life insurance is almost always a husband/wife team decision, because it’s a monthly amount that has to be paid and the decision has to be made as to whether or not both lives have to be insured.

Or what? She didn’t tell the kids, we’ll be ok as soon as we get the insurance check? Way to go lady, stress them out of their minds!

They did everything wrong in that commercial they could do wrong for the sake of fear. Buy life insurance or else your family too could be terrorized! Buy life insurance and don’t tell anyone you did, so you have the fun of both protecting your family and being a cruel, manipulative bastard one last time!

And here all this time I thought Australia was a dessert.

Not to mention the sneaky dead dad made sure the oldest son had his sneaky don't tell anyone values ingrained in him or he would have told mom he had a fookin' job.   What a shitty family.

When it's too warm to have radiators on to dry clothes, but too wet to dry things outside.

You have weirdly intricate and convoluted commercials in Canada. That is a whole story. The "stories" in our commercials are much shorter and simpler. The last two commercials that got my attention recently were the one where these poles for electricty (these thingies, however you call them) dance to an upbeat music (for electricty provider) and the one where random people in different scenes recite rhymes (for mineral water).

Lol, we've been brought up to admire incredible European commercials! Loooooong commercials.

This one was American, and it's a lot of action packed into, I don't know, 30 seconds? Most commercials are shorter than that these days, I should time it the next time I see it.

I am pretty sure most are shorter than 30 seconds here too.
