That Crunchyroll has yet to fix a variety of issues on their website, not to mention their mobile app.

For example: they have the option to sort comments by "top" or by "date," but they all sort by date no matter what you do. The comments also are often "cloned," and sometimes only one of the two comments can be successfully rated and such (no way to tell which is which, either).

Their mobile app has no option to display comments or to make them, either. Their mobile app also will frequently skip portions of videos entirely at random, freeze, or do any of a number of things that make watching videos on it a chore.

As someone who has paid for Crunchyroll premium fairly often over the last couple of years, these sorts of basic issues never being fixed continue to annoy me.

Crunchyroll issues aside, I have my usual annoyances with the stupidity of humanity. Reading a news article and seeing the highest rated comments on them being illiterate morons bashing some stereotypical group of people is always fun - no matter who is doing the bashing, or who the "enemy" group is, that sort of thing never seems to quit.

People preferring having an easy enemy rather than respecting proper nuance is, in my view, one of the biggest reasons why our world is going more and more down the drain. Sadly, I doubt that people will grow up and become mature adults anytime soon.

One of the biggest annoyance to me in life in general is the increasing realization that - as a 25 year old man - most people who are "adults" never actually grow up. Most people will live the majority of their lives, if not the entirety of their lives, believing in nonsense, refusing to be open-minded, and playing identity politics and childish games throughout life. The only difference being that "adults" are allowed to control society, and somehow are considered automatically mature by sheer merit of their age, regardless of their mentality. The fact that many of these fully grown children are then also able to have children of their own, and pass on their immaturity to the next generation, continues to baffle me.

I suppose the whole Crunchyroll thing is something that has annoyed me today, though, specifically. The other annoyance are more general, and aren't likely to go away anytime soon.

The fact that I have to work both tomorrow and on Monday, which is a holiday. Most people are getting a three day weekend, and I only get Sunday off.

Okay so what is annoying me today.. well.. let me see. Today my day at work was incredibly long and pointless. My lead has my co-worker and I working on figuring out a bug in the system. So here is the problem, my lead is only focused on the result. He provides me with a ummmm.. response or file and how he got the file. Now... how the file is actually generated be damned. He does not care about looking at stuff like that. What he cares about is why the response is not right. When I do my best to explain he basically stops listening.

He and my co-worker sadly, do not read the code do not take the time to look through stuff do not take the time to learn. The look in their realm knowing full well that maybe, JUST MAYBE, there are external tools and sights. So, I am left to painfully explain the simplest of boolean logic. To them and, despite both of them having experience comparable to my own, I see they are illiterate when it comes to coding. I have to explain to them how short circuit evaluation works. We have all been doing this for 5 to 10 years now. They are not interns, yet they act like it. Both are ridiculous. Here is a perfect example of how ridiculous they are.

I am provided with another response/file. I am told what they want to have happen. I am just fine with that stuff. So what do I do, I start analyzing data. I notice that there is a ton of duplicate data in what I am given. So I, like an intelligent thoughtful person, figure out where the unique data is. Then I modify the request so that it only produces the unique data. My lead just had his mind blown. He literally asked me "Does the request I sent you prove this?" Like I sent him some kind of hacked out alternative. So I sit down with him and explain my process and reasoning. I know English is not his first language but such a thing as explaining why things work is pointless to him. I drew pictures I showed him my testing. I have received more thoughtful looks from people who really do not care about the fix than I did someone who's job it is to understand what I am saying.

Even worse he is wasting resources on this bug. All we do everyday is step op each others feet, which my co-worker uses as an excuse to make me do all the work, but I digress. He shows no thought and ability to see that how he is running this team is pointless. We are all going to cause each other trouble and mess with each other unknowingly. He needs to just assign one of us to figure out the problem and the other to a real task. However, since I am a contractor I have to play nice, so I do not get fired in a couple months.

Random thoughts about updating certain abused visas here. But no actual confirmation of those thoughts so I do not risk getting fired. And that is what is annoying me today.
