Marketing a sale as 2 for $10 when the sale also includes 1 for $5

Works almost every time on the supermarket. I don’t mind as much if most people fall for it and I get better deals :P

Even worse, when it's 2 for $3 but one is $1.49

Major pet peeve of mine, when listed price is lower than register price

Also, menu had the sandwich at $16.95, but it rang up as $17.95.

I don’t care if it’s negligence or malice, it’s annoying either way. Might’ve posted about it already.

Randomness is a pet peeve of yours?
Oldest recorded pet peeve.  :P

ובאותו ענין
Guy came over to me urgently motioning to his tefilin, so of course I assumed he’s on the tefilin adjuster oversight committee and dutifully adjusted my own. He motions even more urgently so I figure I went too much to the other side etc. Didn’t realize until after that he was asking me if his were straight…

I use parchment paper in the toaster oven all the time, only have a little problem if the paper is too big and hits the element on top

The other option is to spray the foil really well with pam, but make sure you don't miss any spots.

par baked pizza bagels
if I would put silver foil it wouldn't be thoroughly baked before the edges turned brown, solution put the bagel between coils and put a silver foil on the crumb tray and let it bake and drip.

When calling for Shidduch Info, why is it so unheard of to text the person you want to ask information from? I ignore many random calls, and I would instantly call back if you text me. I must've received hundreds of shidduch phone calls in my life, and 2 texts. Can we please normalize texting references, just to let them know why you are calling?

Put that together with people hiding their number, not a chance.
Either way, with pixel call screen, either they gotta say why they are calling or won't get through
