People who can't do for themselves.....

There is nothing more that annoys me then people who can't do things for themselves. People who need constant hand holding and guidance.

You are a freaking adult you should be able to;

Google it.
Check the website.
Look it up in the yellow pages.
Read.
Phone that person/place or thing yourself.
Research it.
Go to your destination.

Most of the time it strikes me that people do it purely for the attention they get from it. I guess I don't get the need for human interaction with strangers.

You can't expect everyone to be as educated as your on how the internet works. Some people really think they're getting a better faster answers from here. I guess a phone number or something is different but If im looking for info about a product or something I'd mos def post a question.

whoa shit this thread got catty right quick didn't it? :P PUT THE CLAWS AWAY LADIES.

I can see Avana's point completely and I think a lot of people are missing it.

There's getting a second opinion once you've already exhausted your own resources (ie good patios to drink at, good furniture stores, etc.) and then there's not trying to find it yourself at all, I thought it was fairly obvious she was referring to the latter.

Getting product information is one thing....

Posting 8 new threads on where to get tickets for sinful instead of just doing a search, is lame.

ps - I googled good patios in Vancouver and got a website that was outdated and many of the restaurants on the list were no longer open.

I exhaust every resource before coming to FNK.

personally, I still think asking real people is better...

Google (if it had been updated) would tell you this patio is good, that one sucks.

But there's also advertising involved.. so its promotional.

Whereas a bunch of people can say.. yeah its good atmosphere.. try this drink... or the food is good but the service is terrible.

With website info its likely that there wont be any negative info about the places you lookup and therefore.. I guess its kindof false info.

I'm kindof rambling on about this lol... obviously we just disagree *shrugs*

You should probably quit the internet, cause you are still wrong.

The website was all about the Patios in Vancouver, where they were located and their seating numbers. Food/service/marketing were all secondary.

hahaha. easy there, killer...

as I stated before: I'm not interested in arguing about it.

while its obvious your not interested in what anyone has to say about anything, unless of course they are agreeing with you..

do you know how to 'agree to disagee'?
Its called a differene in opinion. its OKAY to have them.

''we disagree.....'' ''so what.''

you just proved what a waste of time google can be for those sorts of things. much easier to ask on here.

meh, so glad simple little things like this don't get me irritated, theres bigger things to worry about :)
