My panini press heats up on the stove top. I keep it with my other pots and pans in the cabinet.

Yup, press goes with pot and pans down under. Only gets used 5 or 6 times a year but SO worth it when it does get busted out.

Got one of these chits (for about $20 cheaper than what it is now). Handy for waffles and pancakes too.

^ exactly the one I have. Pretty sure got it cheaper than that. Works great!
Also have the toaster oven but never actually use it for toasts or sandwiches.

Toaster ovens make great pizza bread. You can make your own seasoned butter using your favorite spices to top. I'm making myself hungry.

Bought something on eBay. Something that was shipping via Global Shipping Program. This is the first for me because I never buy GSP fudge just because they charge me custom fees where there should be none, or charge more, or whatever; and overall, I think it is a shitty program.
The seller shipped the item the next morning and it arrived to the GSP centre in 2 or 3 days. It was then sitting there for about 5 days (if not more). Now, I don't know what they used as the carrier, but nothing is here a week and a half later (since they shipped the item). Definitely the last time I am buying something that is first shipped to the GSP centre. I would have had it in hands before it was even shipped the second time has it been sent directly to me to begin with.

Doesn't matter how badly i want an item, if they use the global shipping program i pass. you should be boycotting that fudge.

Exactly! My first and last time. The only reason I bought the item, given I ever receive it, is because it was about $200 cheaper than elsewhere, after shipping and bullshit fees.

Edit: I am lying, now that I think about it. I did buy a fly fishing line a couple of years ago that was supposed to be shipped through the GSP. I ended up winning the auction before any bullshit fees kicked in and the dude sent it to me directly. I caught the first fish with that line 5 days after winning the auction.

Going back to work after a vacation. Oh and flying, definitely flying. Not the actual flying, just everything about the process

Landscapers who start with the leaf blower right outside my office window as I'm jumping on a conference call with a client.

Passengers, especially in the back seat, who feel the need to suggest when you should get gas based on their uneducated guess at your gas gauge. FIL is famous for this. He usually starts getting very concerned when I get to a 1/4 tank, about 100 miles.

Calls every 2-3 days from my mortgage company. Even though I communicate with them on a regular basis and tell them the same thing: "I'm working with the Government about my claim - it's still in the process. I'm sure you understand." This ordeal is heartbreaking as it is without having to repeat myself every other day.

ask for a cease and desist from calls (not letters) as long as you keep up with your situation online or by calling yourself so that you do not get blindsided by any impending action

When you try to upload an image and you get the "internal server error". In addition to that, the post you have written, though not overly long, but long enough to be disappointed, is gone with the error.
