The guys who make it their sacred duty to notify those who’s tfellin slipped a bit to the side

I actually appreciate it, since in recent years I find that my tefillin often slip (99.99% fixed by recentering the keshser).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Getting asked to straighten someone's tefillin. I can't handle such pressure

I just tell people that I don't trust my eyesight, and they should ask someone with better eyes.

How is it possible to for chabad sized tefillin to be askew?

I actually appreciate it, since in recent years I find that my tefillin often slip (99.99% fixed by recentering the keshser).

It's either the weight or the retzuos moving if head is turned or for some other reason. Really frustrates me, but I've yet to find a solution. I saw someone who actually puts a band over his forehead to keep the kesher in place. I'm not ready to to that.

Especially since it's an elderly legally blind person who has his attendant help him put on tefillin, and then puts the band on to keep them in place. Thinking about it I might have seen this with more than one person, in all cases there was an attendant/aid involved.

Why?
I find it supremely annoying. I don’t care for someone to tell me if it slipped a bit.

I find that you use up the shampoo much faster on non-pump bottles.

Bottle falls. Pump top breaks. Pump useless. I have no problem using the right amount with non pump.

If one has little ones you definitely want the pump.

Because they're guaranteed to have it fall on the floor and break (though with non pump they will leave it open and then replace the word "break" with "spill" in the preceding sentence).

The basic H&S pump bottles are fine. Rarely break, and I have an old cover saved just in case. But those pumps in hotel showers that require 17 pumps to get enough shampoo are the worst.
