    What about "whatever way the opening of the symbol is facing, that's the bigger one" like it's a mouth going to eat whichever is the bigger amount i.e. 3>1 or 1<4

    And oh btw, I can't even contribute right now because the list in my head hasn't been narrowed down far enough yet.

    True, I'd def pay a few extra bucks to get it done at a reputable local mechanic than a jiffy lube.

    Ok so I've seen a dozen ways to tell which is the less than symbol.

    But am I crazy in that the simplest method by far is that the "big" or open end of the symbol, whichever one it may be, faces the larger number??? And conversely the small value faces the smaller or closed end.

    3 > 2. Or 50 < 100

    Yeah, but there is a technique to silently releasing them. Perhaps that's what he is bad at.

    Or is he bad at masking the smell using the trumpet notes method?

    Or is he bad at feigning innocence (i.e. it wasn't me)?

    Or is he bad at walking and farting (spreading the damage)?

    Just saying farting ain't that simple unless you just don't give a fart.

    Well that's the only savior. Problem is that pace creates a bad (or good) pace out of the cooler 68 LOL

    With synthetic oil for my 2015 Fit it's almost 90 dollars for the most basic oil change even at the cheap spots. The good thing is I only have to go once every 10k miles or so.

    Not crazy to me, that's what I said too, and it's the only way I can remember since I learned in 3rd grade or whenever.

    It always points to the smaller number.

    No one knows how to put the splash guards back on.

    I'm on my third splash guard - the other two came off at speed because the mechanic didn't put them back on correctly. Now, I take it off before I drop the car off for service and put it back on myself when it comes back.

    My next car will not have a splash guard.

    Re-making a bed. I can put the new sheets on and make well + look decent, but once slept in I cannot make it look good or get out wrinkles. Best compensating strategy is pull covers up while I'm in bed and then try to straighten but even this takes another 2-3 trips around the bed. Most embarrassing as a guest.

    I don't know what bucket this falls under, but I go to a grocery store 5-6 days a week. Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Big Y, Stop and Shop, Fitzgeralds, Fresh Market. I go to the Big Y in Avon and West Hartford. I go to the Stop and Shop in Granby, West Hartford, Farmington and Avon. I go to either of the Whole Foods in West Hartford. And places like Crown Market or D&D (when it was open) in Hartford. I go to A Dong Chinese Supermarket in West Hartford maybe once every 4-6 weeks.

    Even with a list. Even planning out what I would eat for the week, I stop almost every night. I don't know why.

    Ditto. I cannot make a bed, and do what you do -- straighten it out while still in it, then touch it up after getting up. When I'm a guest, I fold the covers back on a 30 degree angle, and sleep on the open spot, then fold them back after I get up.

    I also can't iron a shirt. Period. I cannot do it. Hell, I couldn't iron a towel if I had to.

    I've played poker with friends probably 30 times in the last 3 years. I come in 4th of 8 just about every time. It's really amazing. It doesn't matter who I'm playing with, the results are nearly always the same.
