What's with the random tasks continuing

I hate them. I assume they are there just so the taskbar is never empty.

    When a character with a task symbol appears that you suspect is a random task you can either go to KL or your friend list and that will make the rando task disappear. If that same character still has a task icon active then it probably isn't a rando task.

    Whenever I see grandpa has a task I switch to KL so I don't have to do his tell stories task for the thousandth time.

    I bought gorgeous grandpa so I would not have to do that anymore. Atm I have 2 random tasks, one is grandpa and the other is lisa. I have cool lisa so now those 2 tasks just stay there and I never randomly send any character on a random task again!

    Did this by accident. It was on Willie, which I have a skin for, and I went to KL to clear stuff. When I came back it had switched to Moe with a 24 hour task. If it had still been Willie, the task never would've been done.

    tried this but when I get back there is another rando waiting for me! If I have to do this until all my characters randoms are cleared I will just live with the task

    Well it has happened. Apu just came up with a 12hr shift. This will sit in my task bar, unless an update removes it.

    The only random task in my list is to grow perfection
    I'm growing corn, so I can't complete the task
    But no other random task will come up so long as that one is pending!

    Never got a random task for Cletus' farm, only characters.
    That is why Apu will sit there with his 12hr shift till EA removes it.

    What I did was wait for a short one to come up and don't do them. I think the limit is 3 tasks as I've had the same 3 tasks waiting to be completed. Homer going to Kwick-E-Mart, Lisa reading a book and harvest perfection.

    Growing corn seems to be a guarantee that you will get a farm task. I had the grow perfection task show up the day after I planted corn. It will be their for a long time.

    Funny, I only get single random tasks ranging from 45s to 24hr. Also have not gotten farm task since I first grew corn in May. I was running it with the radio & TV stations with character tasks, then thought that maybe this update would push a crop {like I read in other threads}. So hoping with the Halloween update it will push early corn, it's due in 75d21h.

    I had the hospital glitch, maybe this is a glitch in my game?

    Meh, I just do the task. If it throws one character out of sync with the rest, I just sit them on the sidelines till they can get in the game again.
