Petty things in life that get you way happier than is justified?

Let's see how a more positive version of the irritants thread fares.

To kick it off - I work nights, starting at 11pm. One of my favourite things about that is that the cleaner arrives at 9pm. So when I arrive, she's already cleaned the gent's. So I walk in, and there are six stalls. All their doors are open, and the cleaners put the lid down when they're done cleaning a toilet. So when it's time to take a shit at work you walk into the bathroom, and at a glance you can tell which throne to take that has just been cleaned and you're the first one to use it since. Very satisfying.

What are some small pleasures that you perhaps get more satisfaction out of than you should?

I find getting a check up from the doctor relaxing for some reason. Like you know when they're checking your eyes and ears and stuff.

I live in New Orleans, and the summers are downright brutal with the heat and humidity we deal with. One of my greatest pleasures is waking up on a fall morning when the air is crisp and cool, little humidity and a hot cup of coffee while I sit on my back porch rocking back and forth on the 4 ft. swing and listening to the sounds of the morning awakening.

Yes. Waking up Saturday morning and feeling that sense of dread because you think it's Friday. That feeling of relief when you realise what day it is is orgasmic.
The effect of this is lessened for me, since a) I don't hate my job, and b) I don't have to get up in the morning. Getting up at 7am is fucking torture for me, always has been. Getting up at 9:30pm is no bother at all by comparison. :conf

I'd agree mostly. I like my job now and rarely wake up in terror on a work day. But if I've had a few drinks on the Friday night, wake up dazed and confused thinking I need to go to work only to realise its Saturday. Pretty satisfying. To a lesser extent, I only work in the afternoon on Thursday so waking up Thursday am and spending an hour just slowly waking up is great.

Show dem balls bro
When the neighbors friends park up far enough to pull two cars onto the sidewalk curb and not just one car right in the middle where the most shade is. Fucking jizz in my pants moment there.

Yet another thread of Haggis' petty oneupmanship & talking about himself under the guise of "debate".

"I love when I start work at 11pm that the toilets are clean but you're just weird if you enjoy check ups at the doctors."

"You might like sleeping in on Saturdays but I can't do that so no further discussion about that."

Seventh post whining about me in three different threads since you've popped up again today. Jesus Christ, you're boring. You just can't help yourself, can you?

Stop deflecting.

You know it's true - you conjure up the most inane thread topics just so you can talk about yourself.

That's what's boring.

As opposed to you, who comes up with zero thread topics, and just parachutes into mine to...... talk about how Tuff Gong doesn't like me, and for some reason this is so important that you use literally the majority of your posts here to make sure that everybody knows it. Not disagree with any points I made, not engage in the thread topic, just whine over and over and over and over that "waaaaaah, I don't like Haggis, waaaaaah." As if anybody here gives a fuck what you think about me or anybody. Get over it man, there are a million things to talk about here that aren't me. :rolleyes

Mate, change the record, you've been using this whole thread-starting shtick for years now.

Maybe if you stopped disagreeing with & dismissing people whose opinions you disagree with in your inane threads there would be more open debate & more people would start more threads about more varied topics, as opposed to you recycling topics (& their positive/negative converses) ad nauseam?
