This.

Also, when I'm trying to put the reflective shade under my windshield and it keeps sliding / falling down with the visors folded down, so I have to unhook the visors and turn them lengthwise to keep the shade up. Way too much hassle...

Agreed, I personally don't care about sweating in a hot car for the 1-2 minutes before the AC kicks in, but when my wife's in the car, she strongly prefers that we park in a shady spot, even if it's a fur piece from the entrance.

I wish my AC worked... 2003 Corolla, runs great except the AC. Took it in a year ago and they said it had a leak and needed a freon refill, the fix was ~$150, not bad. Only problem is that a few months ago I started hearing same noises and air isn't getting cooled again. I wonder if he only refilled and didn't replace the leaky tubes like he said he would... grrr. (I think this bothers me just as much as it should though)

The trip went fine, i enjoyed "the Post", and I didn't even have to check my bag.

I moved my overnight kit (brush, toothbrush, etc.), underwear, nightclothes, tomorrow's outfit, and gear for tomorrow's activity into my backpack. Basically, i repacked everything.

Do you have so much sensitive information on your phone that you need a password?

Outdoor events during the summer (picnics, weddings, etc).

I don't live in an area renowned for either weather or scenery, so it's inevitably hot/humid/rainy/buggy/otherwise uncomfortable. I don't think I've ever been to an outdoor event where I've thought, wow, it is super nice outside today, great day for this. Every outdoor wedding I've ever attended around here has had rain or humidity. Face it people (locals), we'd all be better off holding these events inside where it's climate controlled instead of trying so hard to play outdoors-y.

A can of refrigerant is 10-20 bucks. If the leak's slow enough that it'll keep it in for a reasonable length of time, just refill yourself and top it off when needed.

Wow, you don't have a password on your phone? It's not 1997, we've moved past flip phones, smart phones have a lot of information on them.....

Why do you hate the ozone layer?

Can't have nefarious individuals get access to my AO account.

But yeah, gotta have a pw on it. Fingerprint readers make it stupid easy.
