I usually try to avoid bitching in my journal, but this morning I can't help it. I have one simple question:
Why are the members of my family fundamentally opposed to putting the DVDs back into their damned cases and back onto the damned shelves?
I spent a good portion of my precious morning hour-to-myself sorting through stacks of stray DVDs and empty cases, trying to match everything back together. As it is, most of two seasons of South Park are missing, and I have the disk for Red Dwarf VI but no case. I have made specific requests that this be done, which have been pooh-poohed as an overly anal-retentive streak on my part.
We paid good money for these things. Why is it not worth the extra 6 seconds to make certain that they can be located and still work te next time you want to view them?
This is a huge pet peeve of mine, and a battle I fear I will never win. But, damn, it frustrates the hell out of me.
