    "Service Engine" lights.
    I know there are things you can buy that decode them but why should that be necessary ?

    The radio has a display that tells you the station you are listening to and a scroll of the song playing. Why not a similar display? One that scrolls "service engine... the gas cap needs tightening" or "alternator needs replacing " or "pull over, transmission is going to implode in 5... 4... 3... ".

    I think it very much your fault that your butler is so delayed on the task. When it happens to me, I have my chauffeur sort anything to do with the car

    Your butler will be indignant at being allocated the task. Every gentleman has made this mistake, so don't beat yourself up over it

    If your chauffeur is away on leave, you might wish to substitute the stable boy, head gardener, or pastry chef. I find all those guys to be good at detail work - and you can play guitar whilst you watch

    Why?

    6:30AM is a problem, 6:30PM is not a problem.

    I hope he told you to mind your own business.

    You are probably not in their target demographic.

    Nah; just the older I get, the less patience I have for BS & the human race in general.

    "You are probably not in their target demographic."
    I would think not.

    When you break a string on stage for the 1st time in years, change it really quick, and your tuner decides it's not working.

    I'm on the road a lot. Going into public restrooms where people have peed all over the seat in a stall really frustrates me. I find to hard to understand why people can't just lift the seat up and why they have to be so inconsiderate and do it all over the seat.

    You have now crossed the line into harassment. Another peep out of you, and I will report you. I see similarities between you and my “neighbor”.

    That's why I always take a spare guitar. My eyesight isn't what it was. I'd have to fumble around, find my glasses, try to fit the string in the semi gloom of the stage lights. It would probably take me half an hour.

    When somebody references a song in a guitar forum & you can't get it out of your head until you learn to play it, such as the recent TPDRI thread about "6 Days On The Road" (which is unexpectedly now part of my repertoire)...
