tech language complaint
One of my tech pet peeves is the word 'picklist'. A certain major CRM (rhymes with pale horse) uses this word in place of 'drop-down menu' or 'select list' and I cringe and cringe all day. I wish they would let users pick which label to apply to this feature. From a list? ugh, words!
"You're back home seeing top tweets first!" is the most user-hostile behvior. Calling it "home", changing the preference frequently, and constantly shaming me for using it is garbage. Why add the feature if you're just going to be a jerk about it the whole time? (Why do I still go there!?)
Scenario: You left the key to your desk at home. Your noise canceling headphones are locked within. You're in an open office. Do you: a.) Become one with the office environment sounds today. b.) Buy cheap earbuds at lunch. c.) Play Metallica's Master of Puppets through your laptop speakers because it's an enjoyable album that everyone will love.
The Oregon Country Fair is always an adventure. I posted a few photos: https://www.onfocus.com/2019/07/7531/oregon-country-fair

Generalistic and moderated instance.
