Why I start hating to build free software are comments like these:

"Gadgetbridge always fetch wrong data from my watch. It seems like there is no plan to solve this issue. I'm totally disappointed."

Any idea how to deal with people who use software that was created by volunteers in their free time, and then complain and demand?

My wife asked me why I was speaking so softly at home.

Alexa laughed. Siri laughed.

Found this humorous paragraph in the English instructions of the Beyerdynamic DT 150 headphone/DT 190 headset: "[…] consequences of damaging [a highly-paid presenter's] ears may well prove to be music to the ears of the lawyers."

The German version is much more prosaic.

One of my audience lingers after I have finished my story.
"I missed the start, where's that from?"
"Nowhere, I made it up myself," I reply.
He looks baffled. "Is that allowed?"
In some other reality I am cool; say "No" and walk away.
In this, I open my wallet. "I have a permit."
