Do you know what really gets on my nerves? People who linger behind in public bathrooms when they KNOW that someone is still in the stall STRUGGLING to remain “discreet.”
Surely you’ve experienced this at least once? If you haven’t, you’re a lucky individual!
Everyone prefers to have their most “private” moments in the comfort of their own homes, but on occasion, urgency demands that you stop in a public bathroom or the bathroom at your job and do what needs to be done.

Is the Chromecast Plugged In?
I know, I know, this is so obvious, but I can’t tell you how many times I realized my cast to screen icon was missing because I forgot to plug the Chromecast device in!
I didn’t realize until this year that it was possible to cast screen from my laptop to my Chromecast device so that I can watch shows on my television. The option is available in your web browser. The video silently plays in the background and shows up on your television screen while you navigate other things on your laptop.
