I hate emailing people so much!
That kinda sucks.

E-mailing is a lot easier than dealing with things on the phone to be fair.

True. At least I'm not gonna have to phone them - they probably wouldn't believe my age from my voice alone either

Pandora was great at that it always suggested decent, related artists
I do think spotify is quite poor on UX/UI in general, for example I can't see a list of recently played songs, so if I hear something I like, I have to go add it while it's still playing, but I often realise I like a song a few songs later, when the song is still stuck in my head.

As far as the tailored playlists based on your taste, they were really good at the start when I was mainly listening to one genre, but now I've had time to listen to all the kinds if music I like, they seem confused.

I would like the ability to generate a song queue based on the songs in a playlist, but not including any of them, so I can discover new songs of a similar style to add to that playlist.

People ordering things without paying for express shipping, then messaging saying 'can I get these for tomorrow'. It happens all the time. Yes, you can get them tomorrow, if you go back a day in time and check out selecting express shipping or go back 2 weeks in time and order using standard shipping. Ohhhh 'It's for a loved ones birthday' (get this one all the time too), you clearly don't love them that much if you are ordering their gift the day before their birthday and choosing not yo pay for express shipping right.

Thanks for the tip. Maybe give it a try over Spotify too. I have Amazon Prime and find their music service to be pretty good too.

Overtaking people on the pavement. I feel like a stalker gradually coming up behind them. If there's not much difference in our walking speeds then I have to choose between slowing down a bit or speeding up and overtaking

Bring on some sort of pavement travelator like they have in airports.

When you send a message asking someone to check if a laptop is worth buying but they don't reply in time....
Would be quicker to send a pigeon. I dislike pigeons but they must have some use other than pie..yuk

Why is your avatar pixelated? I was going to visit an airport tomorrow for the first time in my life but it hasn't happening now

Don't know, I just like the pixelated look. I like 8-bit graphics in video games too.

Why were you gonna visit an airport and why not?

Women always seem to be startled when I pass them, do the footstep sounds getting louder and my shadow getting bigger mean nothing to them.

I had a great walking race against a guy on the way home from work today. It's very rare anybody comes close to my pace, but this guy was hardcore. I saw him walking my way in the shopping centre as I was leaving and he passed me at about 10 minutes in, he was going so fast as he passed me I thought he was a jogger. Once I realised we were in a race, shiz got real. I managed to beat him by about 2 meters after 25 mins walking in the end, but he had started around 15 meters behind me, so I would say the race was his.

They're probably startled by the sight of a person sized bunny looming over their shoulder.

Feeling too under the weather and socially anxious to get a book signed by Simon Amstell. Now I'll never know if he smells as I imagine.
