Well, my XBox 360 just lost its ability to read disks and I have no way of fixing it. There's no Gamestop anywhere near here because it's the middle of nowhere and nobody cares about us. There was a local business that, among other things, used to fix games, but they stopped offering that service because they weren't making enough money from it. Thus, I will likely never play my collection of XBox 360 games again. That's disappointing.

However, on the bright side, I recently finished setting up my XBox One and have been playing the Master Chief Collection. I just finished the Halo 2 level "Gravemind". Enhanced graphics did nothing to help my enjoyment of the level; it still sucks. It took me nearly an hour to get through, even on Normal difficulty, because I kept getting lost. Everything looks the same and I kept getting turned around and accidentally backtracking. Halo 2's biggest weakness is the lack of nav points. Everything else about the game is fun, but their absence is particularly painful on this level.

Edit: I tried Halo 3, and the MCC version of the game is pretty much unplayable, as the controls are too different from the others. The big problem is that the controls are backwards. When not dual-wielding, I have to use the left side of the controller to shoot, not the right, which is for grenades. I'm right-handed, so I am incapable of adjusting.

I notice from your special license plate that you are a veteran. That's very impressive. Not only that, but you were wounded in battle. I appreciate your sacrifice. I really do. However, even that does not grant you permission to be a dick. The rules of the road apply to you just like with everyone else. If people already going at or above the speed limit are still far too slow for you, then you need to learn some patience.

TL;DR: A veteran was driving fairly recklessly.

Anti-complaint: The forecast says it's supposed to rain tonight!
In order to comply with certain government regulations that I won't get into, I needed to buy a car by the end of April. It makes sense in context and isn't what I'm complaining about. While shopping around, I found one dealer had a Ford Mustang GT, my dream car, and it was a convertible to boot. It wasn't a year model I would've preferred, but it's still a Mustang. The dealer quoted $6000-$8000, which was a great deal and well within my price range. There was one catch: it wasn't ready yet. It still needed repairs and wouldn't be ready until about a week after the government's deadline. The dealer wasn't sure what was wrong with it yet, so that estimate was assuming it was something simple like a plugged exhaust system. Sure, I could've probably made a down payment and picked it up when it was ready, but I know better than to put my money into something before even the dealer knows what it's worth.

TLDR: I had to pass up a low-priced Ford Mustang GT convertible because of timing.

Bonus Complaint: None of the dealers had a Jeep Wrangler, which was what I had been actually looking for. One place had sold their last one just a few days earlier, so I missed out.

Anti-complaint: At least I now know that obtaining my dream car is an attainable goal.

Anti-Complaint 2: I got an S-10 instead. It feels more natural to drive than my previous vehicle (a Dodge Ram) because I learned to drive with my grandfather's old Silverado. It feels nice to be behind the wheel of a Chevy again.
