First off, f**k you, Verizon.
The "new & updated" AOL software is a p.o.sh*t nightmare.  Angry
Still trying to figure out how it works (for instance, no discernable way to switch between screen names while online.  Working around it by signing off & switching sn's that way.)
"Bookmarks" seems to save them across all screen names instead of for each sn.
Oh yeah, the Favorite Places on the old Desktop weren't ported over.  Good thing I sent them to myself in emails.  Will have to sign in to some of them again (site cookies also weren't ported over either.)  Going to be a p.i.t.a. process before I get them all back in.
Can't access Billing or other features in the main account.  Because No Links. Because, Not Even There.
Tech support was unhelpful.  No surprise there.
Definitely going to look into a different ISP.  I have suspicions Verizon is eventually going to discontinue both AOL and Yahoo (probably within a year.  All that bandwidth is worth more $$$ than their current internet operations bring in.)
I doubt if I'm the only one pissed off...

What pisses me off? Stupid drivers! I had to make a short road trip, I must be old because it bothers me when people drive stupid, I used to do it myself. Everyone is in such a f&cking hurry! I'm going 74 in a 70 MPH zone and people are blowing by me, riding my ass. Angry  Backoff Jack, or your insurance company is going to buy my wife a new used vehicle.

I was just looking at some of the stories on my Yahoo page (yesterday) and I get this warning, I always force a shutdown if something strange happens.  I wasn't fast enough, something got into my computer and changed (removed) my Yahoo and Google toolbars.

I am learning to deal with it. I always did my searches from my old Windows 7 IE browser, I know it may be obsolete but it always worked very well for finding and posting commercials from iSpot/

Mama added 'chocolate cake mix' to the grocery list the other day, she whipped up this amazing peanut butter frosting.  What pisses me off about this?   IT'S ALL GONE!!!  God, that was good!

About our grocery store...Mama loves her Mocha Latte for her Keurig.

The last 3 times I've been to this store, all in the past week, they have been sold out! Angry
There is always a bunch of busy bodies stocking shelves when I shop, I'd like to tell them that somebody dropped the ball.

Then! I always buy the same brand of skim milk. The expiration date on what I wanted was 1-18...TOMORROW!!  WTF!?!?  I'm might have to shoot them an e-mail. Angry

When people on message boards put titles of movies/TV shows/books/songs/whatever in bold; so lame and unnecessary.

I always use italics for the name of the show, and quotation marks for episodes within a show; before, I used the quotation marks for the name of the show, but now, I italicize a show name when I can, and leave it unmodified when I cannot.

I always buy whatever brand has the best expiration date.  Whether store brand or the more expensive brand, it's all the same milk.  My milk distributor at work verified this.

I'm getting a strange barrage of junk mail from local insurance agents, don't they know how much I hate them? 
Yesterday, it was from 2 different agents for State farm. One of them, should remember how upset I was with him. Our homeowners premium went up 100% in five years, I told an inspector they sent out to "get off my lawn".
 Some corporate asswipe sent a letter telling us he would have to contact the mortgage lender.. Sorry you worthless f*ckstick, the house is paid for in full.

Today!  2 sales pitches from Farmers. One addressed to me and the other to Mama, they used her previous married name.  Angry
