Someone tell Amazon that I don't give a **** about [overpriced] Luxury Beauty credit, they should stop offering me that as no rush credit...
I've never gotten that so there must be something making them think you are interested.

People who sit on their phones the entire time in shul during tefilla. Seriously, why bother even coming?

Since when did it become "OK" to just sit back and be immersed in your phone from the time you throw on your talis/tefillin until the moment you decide you had enough and just as coldly throw off your talis/tefillin and go home, or worse, not even realize that the tefilla is over and you have to hide your very red face as you egress even faster.

The same goes for mincha and maariv, it seems that the new norm is to come in, sit down, and pull out the phone and depending on what the guy is doing with the phone he might not even go through the motions at all and simply stay seated the whole time.

Don't even get me started on the ones who have the utter chutzpah to answer during davening. Shame on them! There's no excuse in the world for that, not even a Dr has a right to answer in middle of tefilla in middle of the shul, at least let him walk out.

End rant.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

They are probably fed up with every other siddur in the shul missing a different page, so using a siddur app.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Polls on DDF threads where you can only see the results if you've voted. (Or if you can never see it.)  >:(

There's a button for that.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It's not their fault that they have no hergish for tfilla. Have rachmonus on them.
If you don't care why would you comment?

That's the pshat that's always said about those that grew up in yehupitz and don't even know what tefilla means.

I'm referring to people that went to very famous and mainstream yeshivas.

Which famous and mainstream yeshivos do, or are able to, instill hergesh or love for tefilah?

Everybody is holding on their level. When they are disturbing you personally, that's one thing, but if they just aren't feeling it, that's between them and the big one upstairs.
