Pollen Alert! 😮

Recommended Posts

Everyday. 46 times per day.  My phone goes off with a POLLEN ALERT 🙄 

For hundreds of years people have survived just fine living with "pollen", so what has changed ?

Humans have evolved into such delicate little critters, haven't they?   Good grief !   

So if you are one of these anti-pollen people, what are you supposed to do, lock yourself in a sealed room, take lots of meds, and breathe through a pillow case?  Who's gonna pay your bills? Because there hasn't been a day without a POLLEN ALERT since the rent was due the last time.   Who is gonna hide the Easter eggs?

It's only those of us that have Neanderthal ancestors that suffer from allergies. Pure humans don't need pollen alerts. Strange that you get them and I don't,.. ahchoo!

I didn't know yiu could get pollen alerts even, I just look outside at the hood my truck.  For the first 40 years of my life I was allergic to nothing, then at one point I was sick enough that I hoped someone would shoot me.  Went to the Dr and he said, you are miserable but not sick.  Whaaat, apparently immunity to pollen isn't always a lifelong benefit, now I just take zyrtec and am good, well except for the side effect of loss of taste/flavor.

Of all the things I inhale on a daily basis (cigarette smoke, carb cleaner, gas fumes, hair spray fallout, nail polish remover, fly head cement, dog farts, CCA sawdust, 2-stroke exhaust, diesel fumes from the truck in front of me at the stop light...)

Pollen is what we are gonna piss and moan about, and claim that is what effects us the worst.   Rediculous!

I was never allergic to pollen until I moved to my current house.  I has 12 oak trees on the property.  Green dust covers everything once it really gets going.  This year hasn't been so bad yet as the storms we've had lately seem to have knocked a lot of the tassley things off the branches already.  Last year I couldn't hardly keep my eyes open without some sort of steroid eye drop.

A couple weeks ago I spent about a half hour clearing crap off my elderly aunt’s phone so it wouldn’t go crazy beeping and blinking every time she tried to use it. Do I need to make a trip down there to get the pollen alerts turned off?😁

I was thinking the same thing.

Mine rings when I get a call, flashes a little red led when new text or email pops up.  Has not really done anything all weekend to distract me.  I have it trained well.

Yes please.  My wife's BFF is an ATT manager and she couldn't do it without killing ALL weather related alerts, but she did get the Amber alerts killed which was my other rant.  Those freaking things would interrupt a business call/parts order every time any Dad in the state was 15 minutes late dropping  his kids back off at his ex wife's house.
