I'm labelling this post as a "vent", but it's more my sarcastic view of the world today.
What is the purpose of the fixed door on a sliding glass door? If you want a huge window, why not just have a huge window there, why a door? I guess I can see that having a door that slides side to side instead of opening on hinges is useful--it would open even if there is 3-feet of snow pressed up against it from the outside. I just have never figured out why that second pane of glass is there, and doesn't slide or do anything except attract fingerprints and waste heating/cooling energy.
Why haven't any automakers marketed a hybrid mini-van yet? There are hybrid SUV's for goodness sake. I really don't care for a SUV, and although some people seem to think SUV's are more of a status symbol, I just dont' get it. I guess I haven't checked, but maybe the makers of the hybrid SUV's don't have a minivan that's worth buying, so they're hoping to grab a little of their marketshare? I don't know.
Why is it that when I go to Walgreens to have a prescription filled, it takes them 30-45 minutes to slap a sticker on a bottle and ring me up? 5, maybe 10 I could understand to provide time to verify inventory, check info on the computer, etc. But when there are like 2 non-employees in the entire store, and at least 3 people working in the pharmacy, whose prescriptions are they so busy with?
