Most likely it's getting the time from the actual location the server's in... it's located in Miami, Florida.

Naturally, it will post with its own time for you. But if you want to get the correct time, you should check your profile. I just woke up, so I don't remember. I'll have to check and edit this message in a sec.

I'm rather irked that this forum seems to drop me outside the thread immediately after making a post. I get that it's a nice idea in theory, but in practise it's rather silly and I don't care for it.

That said, the fact that it notifies you if you get ninjaed is a nice touch.

My cat has decided she no longer wants to pee in the litter box. I know that's usually the sign of an infection, but the vet couldn't find anything wrong. So now I have to routinely scrub the corners of the carpet, and tell at her, "Bitch, use the fucking litter box!"

I have a cold.  Problem is, it's the first cold I've gotten in years, and it's rather mild.  Meanwhile, I have to hear about everyone else bitching and whining that the (possibly same) cold has knocked them out, and that they can't function anymore, or if they do function, act like it's a sacrifice. (I'm all stuffed up, and I had to take my kids to school, then do laundry, then work...oh woe is me).

They're doing work on a lot of the major roads around here, particularly the main artery by my apartment. They don't seem to ever NOT be doing work there, not since I moved here in April (and when I came to check the place out before deciding to move in March). It seriously disrupts traffic and takes ages to get anywhere.

I'm sure the road will be nicer when it's all done but CHRIST. Another highway is moving and relocating entrances and exists so I can only GUESS where I have to find my exits.

Being sick sucks. Having to take antibiotics for 2 weeks...

*sigh*

I know it is important to take them in orderly manner at the right time and so on, BUT it is just too hard. First you are barely able to breathe, not to mention taking medication regularly on time and then you start getting better and somehow manage to forget why you were on antibiotics in a first place. And I'm about to reach that stage...

Oh I love threads like these. 

-When those pop machines, lottery machines, redboxes, ect won't accept your dollar bill because it's slightly folded.

-Google instant: Most. Annoying. Search. Feature. Ever.  It just slows down your browser, refreshing every time you type a letter.  When I shut it off, it will only stay shut off for a few days before it's reset again.  It's even worse on the toolbar because the moment I type a letter, it takes me away from the page I'm currently on.  If I wanted to search those options, I would type the fucking enter key.  All google instant does is annoy the shit out of you. 

-Assholes who drive by at 1:00am with their music on full blast when I'm trying to FUCKING SLEEP!  If I can hear the BOOM BOOM crap from several blocks away, IT'S TOO FUCKING LOUD!!

That's pretty shitty. People talking about others behind their backs is bad enough, but when they do it when you're still around and only THINK you can't hear (or don't care whether or not you can) is even worse and infinitely more hurtful. One of my favourite self-destructive pastimes is to wear headphones that aren't plugged into anything (or without turning on the accompanying electronic device, at least) and pretend to read a book while other people have conversations around me. You learn a lot about other people based on the things they do and say when they don't think they're being observed.

People who wade onto blog discussions about fashion, food and such who start banging on about what middle class problems we're having and how dare we talk about anything except serious political/economical issues - especially on the guardian - piss off and stop telling me what I should care about you po-faced self-important klungehats.

'Off-menu' secret items in restaurants - Either put the damned stuff on the menu for everyone or don't offer it at all - especially when it's an open secret - e.g Joe Allen's burgers.

Sometimes the reason is because it isn't as popular anymore, and so they've taken it off the menu--and so now, only a few of the older cooks know the recipe and it's basically a crapshoot whether you get someone who still remembers how to make it by the restaurant's recipe or not.

For example, there's a place that used to sell blackened chicken with penne.  It didn't go over well, so they changed it to blackened salmon with penne.  However, Mom was still able to order it with chicken for over a year after the menu change.  However, most people don't want the salmon, they want the chicken.  It's less of a "why the fuck are they offering this?" and more of a "we're trying to phase this out without confusing new customers."

On topic, go away for 5 minutes and the whole bloody forum changes.

Um...the changeover happened on Wednesday.  It is now Saturday.
Yeah, 5 minutes in internet relative time.

More like 5 years.

I'm so fucking sorry she doesn't match up to your idea of how she should be. She's not your feckin' fap material. She's a dynamic character who is more than a pair of breasts and a vagina. Get feckin' used to it.

I have a new therapist, albeit a student therapist, who's trained in DBT...I went ahead and scheduled the first session of the semester with him, but sometimes I worry I won't ever find the same camaraderie I had with my first therapist. I know she had her warts and flaws, some fairly serious ones too, but I felt I could trust her and that she would understand almost anything I told her about. I have nothing in common with this young, male, smarty pants therapist, but D and I had many of the same illnesses and allergies, and she was there from day one, so if I was having an off day or week, she understood.

What's sad is she's probably old enough to be my grandmére, whereas the newbie, Du, is much closer to my age. I don't know. Maybe I'm just scared to let her go. Regardless, I'm not quite ready to give up entirely.

Yeah, but I had no idea she was celibate. Looked up her reasons, and that's pretty cool, kinda like being celibate and not indulging in relationships during college so you can focus on your education...one more grudging reason to like her.

Acne inversa and hidradenitis suppurativa are the same thing (not sure if you knew that or not, just making sure anyone who reads this is clear on it). I get big, red and then purple lesions that fill with blood and pus and then, if I'm unlucky, burst open; I haven't had an official diagnosis, but my doctor said that those lesions probably mean I have acne inversa.

He also told me to avoid antiperspirants (easier said than done), to wear loose clothing, to avoid make up (I don't wear it so) and that there really was nothing else he could do for me; surgery, he said, is the very last resort.

Unfortunately, mine seems to be spreading; I'm about ready to demand a 90-day regimen of antibiotics, which is the typical 'treatment' for this condition. If that doesn't work, it's officially a disability in the eyes of the government, and it's pretty fucking disabling as it is already. Doctors don't want to worry with it, though, and clinical trials require that you have gone through the 90 day regimen before they'll let you in.

My 8-year-old cousin. My aunt and uncle have a lot of money, they make close to $200K a year. This is easily three times as much as the rest of the family. Whenever my cousin comes over to my house, I get to listen to, "My parents have a bigger house than you. My parents have better furniture than you. My parents have a better car than you. My parents have better clothes than you," on and on. I'm 22 years old, and I'm being bullied by an 8-year-old. His parents tell him to shut up, but as he's never disciplined, he keeps it up. Once I came home in my waitress uniform, and he was visiting. He said, "You have a crappy job, my dad makes close to $500 a day."

I honestly hope he one day encounters a bully at school. He needs knocked down a few pegs.

I get to be their live in baby-sitter until Thursday, and tonight we went out at this expensive seafood restaurant to eat. My aunt says, "I'm paying, get whatever you want." It's really awkward eating at a restaurant where the cheapest dish is close to $30.

My 8-year-old cousin. My aunt and uncle have a lot of money, they make close to $200K a year. This is easily three times as much as the rest of the family. Whenever my cousin comes over to my house, I get to listen to, "My parents have a bigger house than you. My parents have better furniture than you. My parents have a better car than you. My parents have better clothes than you," on and on. I'm 22 years old, and I'm being bullied by an 8-year-old. His parents tell him to shut up, but as he's never disciplined, he keeps it up. Once I came home in my waitress uniform, and he was visiting. He said, "You have a crappy job, my dad makes close to $500 a day."

Appropriate responses include:
"all the money in the world won't keep the monsters from hiding under your bed"

"if I sell you/your organs on the black market I'll be as rich as they are"

"your daddy is rich because he sold your soul to the devil"

I  vote for the last one. Also do whatever weird math you have to to make the kid's birthdate equal to 666 or some other demonic number. Also that he'll be sacrificed on his 18th birthday.

Little snot-nosed punk...

Just say that there's only one way you enjoy children: Medium-rare with garlic marinade and sauteed onions.

I honestly hope he one day encounters a bully at school. He needs knocked down a few pegs.

I get to be their live in baby-sitter until Thursday, and tonight we went out at this expensive seafood restaurant to eat. My aunt says, "I'm paying, get whatever you want." It's really awkward eating at a restaurant where the cheapest dish is close to $30.

O______O;; $30?!  My parents make what your aunt and uncle make, and they can't afford things like that.

Re: Aunt and Uncle having more money than your own family- My own aunt and uncle were really highly ranked in the Navy, higher than my dad (I guess perks for being older than my dad and being in earlier?) and they have traveled to Alaska, new zealand, Japan, places like that and we barely scraped by going to Europe for my graduation present. They often pay for our food when they visit and I often get some really neat unique presents from them.

I don't think my dad is upset so much as feeling weird his older sister can pay for all these amazing things. My dad makes some good money teaching for the military, but it isn't that much where we live to afford all these great trips and stuff.

Some people depending on where you live can afford such things even at a smaller pay bracket. I guess because my aunt and uncle invested well too they've done a good job.

But my cousins have never bragged. My oldest cousin lives at home like I live at home (we have about 7 years difference in age. I forget how much). We both pretty much get what we want/need because of it. He knows how it feels to be at home, I know how it feels to be at home.

If he ever mouthed off to me about it (he also does tech stuff like I do. lol we're a lot alike) I'd have to punch him and remind him we both grew up the same way and that we both have lived well.

I... rambled. oops.

Winter is also annoying me.  Was doing the paper route this morning and slid off the road...twice.  Keep in mind that it usually takes me about 2 and a half to 3 hours to do the route.  I'm usually out of the house by 3:#0 and back home by 7.  I left the house round 3:30 and didn't get back in till 11.  Cause I got stuck at the bottom of a iced up hill.  It was annoying.  Had to have another courier come and pull me up the hill, drop my car off at a Safeway, and finish both routes using his car.  And then I didn't get any sleep till about 1:30 in the afternoon cause I had to get new tires for my car.

Ironbite-god I hate this town so much.

To be fair I try to limit my use of the terminology outside the fandom to "frag", "slag", "Primus", and variations on "glitch". And I try not to send people on the hunt for what words mean without some forewarning as to what they're going to find.

I have a new annoyance.  I'm in a Mircocomputer Apps class (required for my programming degree), and all the shit in the book is done in Microsoft Word (or at least, the beginning stuff).  Beyond having no Calibri font (I hear you can install it, but only at your own risk because of copyright, and all that bullshit), there's no style that mimics Word's "Normal" format.  I'd like the assignments to turn out how they're supposed to, but I can't really do that here at home.  As things look, I have to save the file as a .docx and then go down to the school computers (with my car with limited gas) to go and check and change things around so that the line spacing and tabs will show up properly.  Maybe it won't be as big an issue later, but for now, I have to see just how Microsoft treats the slightly different stuff.  Maybe OpenOffice intentionally doesn't save the font type and formatting stuff so that when windows opens it, it'll apply it by default or something.  I don't freaking know, but I have to drive out there and see how it'll look!

Did I mention that the class is online, and barring straight out taking some "lab time" to work on it out at the college, you shouldn't HAVE to go out there to complete your assignments?  Yeah.  :/

My sleep cycle has been completely whackadoo for over a month now. I have to fight my body to get it to go to sleep. On a good day I'm only up for around 20 hours. A bad "day" can stretch for over 36. And because I have school aged children the amount of sleep I get after one of these spells is completely dependent on factors like day of the week, time my body finally decided to give in, if my mother is feeling generous enough to get the kids off to the bus for me, and a large number of other things that can and do go wrong. Like going to bed at midnight, the puppy waking me up because she's acting like she needs to go out, and then having it turn out she just wanted to chase the damned raccoon. So go to bed at midnight, get up at 3:45, be up for another 20 to "god only knows" hours, and not be able to return to sleep.

And while my therapy has significantly reduced the dosage of anti-depressants I am currently on; most sleep medication, doctor ordered or otc, doesn't mix well with them.

Oooh, something else. I hate that tone generally doesn't carrying well over the internet. Nothing really on this thread, except my sleep deprived mind being too literal, but in general.

I could say, "Sure. Obama gets fucked by donkeys and has a steaming bowl of half dead kittens for breakfast every morning. He slurps up their little guts while they mewl plaintively and tries to futilely bat him away with their tiny paws."


Sadly, without the /sarcasm tag someone out there would take that as a serious statement.

My debit card info was stolen and about $400 was charged to my account (at least they were kind enough to leave me 75 fucking cents) while I'm trying to save $600 for hair removal. The Credit Union I'm with was cool about it and I should get the money back in time, I just can't use that debit card anymore and have to wait 2 weeks to get a new one mailed to me.

No, they're going to mail it to me in a couple weeks. I don't mind the wait (I really only used the card at a few sites and only once in person in 2 years of having the dang thing).

This was with a credit card, but a couple months ago somebody stole my info and used it to buy a laptop. The bank just mailed me a new one. The actual charge took a little bit longer to get sorted out, but I got the money back.

No, I think you both misunderstand me.

You can actually go to the branch, order the new card then they give you a temporary one to use until you get your new card in the mail.

See? (https://www.wellsfargo.com/help/faqs/instantdebit)

It's usually called Instant Debit or Temporary Debit Card or something.

So you don't actually have to wait.

But whichever. I couldn't wait so I went in and got the temp card.

A coworker was complaining about  the fight with her boyfriend.  Instead of telling me "He wanted me to take care of my sick child, even though I hadn't slept for the past day and a half", she basically gave me an itinerary of the child's illness, exactly how much sleep she had, hospital visits, calls to her husband. etc.

Simply put, if you wish to vent to me, just say it succintly, don't go into detail and provide a whole background as if you want to really convince me you've been wronged.

Also, if someone doesn't reply back to your hello, don't bloody assume they are angry at you.  Too many people assume other people carry grudges and are angry at  other people.  Jeesh, I thought I was paranoid.

The store where I work has a clearance section that sells brand-new but out-of-season clothes for as little as 1/50 their original price. I shit you not. A woman today bought $30 jeans for $0.23 and I have a few $25 skirts that were reduced to $0.47 apiece. On top of that, every now and then we'll offer a FURTHER discount (at the moment it's 50% off the already massively reduced prices) so it's possible to buy hundreds of dollars worth of stuff for $20 or less.

Despite this, there are a bunch of EXTREMELY CHEAP people who habitually come shopping but refuse to take anything that costs more than a certain amount--some of them will go as high as $10 for one item, depending on what it is, but most won't go more than $3 an item. Plus, they always have a veritable MOUNTAIN of stuff that, when piled on my counter, goes over my head. Having to repeat, "The price is X, would you like to keep it?" for every item I scan makes the whole business take three times as long and leaves me with a huge mess of clothes I have to hang back up. All of them are rude and will argue about a disparity of a few pennies.

I get that money is tight because the economy is shit--trust me, I KNOW. I live in it. But they're never saving more than a few dollars at a time. It's all just FUCKING ANNOYING to the point where, when one of these customers walks in, I will develop a sudden debilitating illness so I have an excuse not to deal with them.

Okay, so I'm trying to get a wee bit of a head start, and H&R Block and TurboTax both have free federal filing, so I tried both of them out. H&r Block says I'll get about $800 (SWEET) while TurboTax says I not only get NOTHING, I owe the state $109. Also, I'm "too young" for Earned Income Credit because I had the audacity to NOT be born in or prior to 1987.

That's the music that defines a large portion of my childhood and early teenage years, after all. Except I've forgotten that for every "She's So High" or Pearl Jam's version of "Last Kiss" there seems to be five "MmmBop" or "Macarenas". The 90's were highlighted by boy bands and one hit wonders, after all.

And yet I keep tuning in every time hoping to catch a K-Ci and Jojo.

Edit: Adding that moment when the last thread/section you've got marked unread is the one you both want to read and dread reading. Today, for me, it's P&G because of the dead cat. I haven't even read the thread yet but mentions of it have popped up in some of the other ones. I know I'm going to be sad, I know I am going to rage, and I know I'm going to feel helpless because there is nothing I can do to help this family out. At least people on facebook are talking about starting a fund to help the 101 year old woman get back her house. But this? Even if the person is caught they'll still get the bare minimum sentencing and might not get any jail time at all. And someone's family pet is still gone, with no way to bring it back.

GE is dicking me around. A couple months ago I went to get my car repaired and considered getting financing, but decided against it. As a result an account through them was set up. I got my car fixed and I paid the bill in full. Then I got a bill from GE saying they wanted ~$2k. I took it to the people who repaired my car and they told me they had no record of the transaction in question, so they told me they would tell GE to give me a refund. As a result, I did not pay the bill and when I called their customer service number I told the rep that I was not going to pay it because the transaction never happened. I was told it would take about a week for the system to get updated and for me to get my account credited. Now they're calling me asking for the money and after speaking with the owner of the car shop I found out they think I've received a refund because GE said that is what happened. I don't know what the fuck GE thinks they're trying to do, but I'm not giving them a fucking cent of my money. I'll take the fuckers to court if I have to do it.

People who cry about how "PC gaming is dying", especially when they point to game stores stocking fuck all PC games nowadays as evidence. Gee Einstein, you suppose that, oh I don't know, services such as Steam, GamersGate and Good Old Games selling PC games for much lower prices than retail has anything to do with it? Nooo, that would make to much sense and force you to drop the whole PC gamer martyr bullshit. We can't have that now can we?

Being perpetually absent minded when non-life altering things aren't right in my face. Especially when those things make other people think you're being rude.

Example: Last friday I had one of my "series of unfortunate events" days. I had at least three different tabs with various conversations open when firefox crashed. I restarted the computer and started messing with other stuff, telling myself I'd come back to those things later. Cause, yeah, my brain goes "Oooh! Shiny!" and runs off in random directions when not corralled. On top of that there are kids, dogs, housework and other offline things to take my attention and slip ups happen. This slip up just meant that I have at least 5 different on site messages from three different sites I thought I had responded to and it looks like I actually did not. I'm back tracking right now and making sure to get back with everyone.

So, yeah, if you sent me a message last friday night, or possibly even last saturday, I'm so sorry for not getting back to you and am playing catch up when not distracted by the shiny.

Having depression and all the fucking things that come with it.

When the psychomotor retardation kicks in and I can't move at all.

When a breakdown kicks in and I weep, scream and punch holes in my bedroom door.

When my parents seem to know all the syndrome's causes, but none of its effects.

When I finally come out about being suicidal and it feels like it's not being taken seriously.

Today, I was supposed to go into the school to get my credits from my last uni moved to this one and applied toward my major. I didn't get to sleep until late last night because I took Excederin at midnight to quash a migraine. After three hours of sleep max, at 6 AM, I got a call from my mother. She sprained her ankle at the gas station and needed help getting inside. I did, and offered to go into the school on Friday instead (it's drop-in, not appt) and take my youngest sister to the orthodontist, which she was going to do today. Classes don't start until April anyway, so there's really no rush. So, I decided to try to get some more sleep.

20 minutes later, as I'm dozing off, I get a call from mom from the family room: She's convinced my grandma to come down and pick my youngest sister up, so I can still make my meeting with the counselor! On three hours of sleep! I told her no... she's telling me I can't "keep putting this off", and I tell her that in fact, yes I can for two more days. She didn't sound too happy with that but I don't care... I'm just so tired. Unfortunately, it's now daytime. Can't get back to sleep.

Today's gonna suck... >.<

You win. But you had.... Okay, I was going to say Roy Orbison but his very best stuff happened the decade before and the decade after. *thinks* Um, the Eagles? I'll admit to having a fondness for Don Henley's solo stuff (my favorite was a screwed up "I don't need you anymore" song called Miss Ghost that no one seems to have on youtube) but I will rock karaoke to Hotel California.

Plus, a lot of the stuff I grew up listen to and remember fondly is either sappy with a good memory attached or so bad it's good.

I will still jump to my feet and bounce around the room if this comes on the radio.

I remember two things about that song when it first came out. 1) Mattel was pissed, which meant it got even more airtime. 2) My local Morning Zoo radio show did a parody and pointed out barbie didn't have flexible knees when the song came out. I have no idea if any of them do now as my kids have asked for a sole barbie doll and that's because they liked her shoes.

My almost OCD like behavior regarding certain, inconsequential things. I can't remember half of what I learned in high school but I have five different aywas spreadsheets and will have 16 once I complete the project I'm working on. I have three different google docs for just one of the stories I'm the beta for (Notes with sub-headers for general notes and then notes by story. This further breaks down into notes by chapter under individual stories. Like the main conflict of chapter one of the prequel won't get mentioned until chapter 17 of the main story. So it will go under general notes, chapter 1 notes for the prequel, and chapter 17 notes for the main story. I'm working on a comprehensive timeline in the second document, which is hindered by the fact my co-author came up with birth order for a family with ten kids but neither of us thought of ages past "Eh, the second youngest was an adult when the youngest was born". And the third document is a character/location tally which, again, gets broken down into: General, by story, and sub-categories under the stories for the order of appearance in each individual chapter. There are also minor notes next to each character marking the important things they did in each chapter. Like Lyra's chapter 12 bio has the short note "The first (and so far only) time Lyra has used the full designation of Lyra Kasai." or her husband's chapter 13 bio of "This is the second time Koori has introduced himself with 'I am Koori Kasai. Member of the house of the great mother and dark father. Brother to the current Oushen. Mate of Lyra. Progenitor of Midori. I swear my allegiance to the Oushen, long may she reign.' even though he is now aware that the humans have no damned idea what he's talking about. When we do the overhaul, are we keeping this as evidence of the formality of the royalty in their society or is it just evidence of his trickster-ish nature?".). And right now I'm taking notes for something completely unrelated to the two involving a debate on character interpretation.

It would be one thing if I was actually able to apply these talents for meticulousness to something useful. But, no, when I try to do that I freeze, or become scatterbrained, or I get bored and wander off after something shiny.

Edit: Need to add my seeming inability to work by myself. I have not finished anything, that I shared with others, that did not have a a co-author credit in over six months.

When people brag about reading a 400 page novel in one night...yeah, that's great and all but it kind of makes some people(like myself) feel retarded...but yet again I do have other things going on.

I read OoTP in one night. But it's not that much of a feat if you are properly motivated and don't have distractions. Reading fast doesn't mean you're reading well.

Really? If I read any of the books in one night, it'd be 1, 6, or 7. Order of the Phoenix dragged, for me.

It was either 5 or 6. I'm pretty sure it was 5. If anything 7 dragged on and I couldn't concentrate so it took me ages to finish it. I only know that I finished it in one night cause I was staying up thanks to not being able to sleep in my sister's house and dad came in after he went to the midnight release and tossed it to me. So I stayed up reading it. And was one of the first to be talking about the death of Sirius.

6 was kinda... weird for me to read.

Quite true. I read the 7th in three hours, but I had no distractions and was really excited about the book.

I brag about reading fast because it's a huge part of my life and I'm proud of it, but it has a number of drawbacks, like losing comprehension. It's not awesome.

So.  I've got a cold sore on my right upper lip.  That's not a big deal; I just avoid lipstick for a week, take half a bottle of L-Lysine, and it goes away with very little fuss.

The problem is that at the same time, my skin said, "Hey, you know what would be funny?  Putting one IN HER NOSE!!" So I have a cold sore just inside my left nostril.  Which means I constantly have that feeling of Something In My Nose and there is nothing I can do about it.

Also, it looks weird and gross and I feel like my class is staring at it. :(

I hate bad, asshole customers.

But I hate nice customers more.

When someone is really mean to you, you're completely justified wanting to kill them or inflict egregious bodily harm on someone. When they're really, really NICE but EXTREMELY annoying, you have no viable excuse for wanting to murder somebody in their sleep over it.

Also: I hate the crazy lady who works in the fitting room because she never ever shuts the fuck up. She's a hundred and five years old, has worked at the same store since the glaciers receded, and hoards hangers in the back like a fucking squirrel with acorns. She talks and talks while you're trying to work and nobody has the heart to tell her to shut up. Even though it's really disruptive. Neither does anyone have the heart to tell her to stop coming up to the counters while people are working and digging straight under their thighs for more hangers to hoard. If she wasn't ancient and a woman, thsi would probably be sexual harassment.

That customer who was super nice but extremely demanding and annoying as fuck came back to the store AGAIN today, AGAIN needed a million things done for her, AGAIN came to my till, and AGAIN took over an hour to see to. AGAIN she was too nice to hate openly.

The next time she comes by, I'm going to conveniently develop a case of anthrax. Or rabies. Or something.

On the plus side I got to flirt shamelessly with one of my favourite underage boys over our mutual hate of another customer we both know and want to strangle. Most of the people who work for that store are teenagers and he's not even eighteen, making me creepily too old for him, but nobody believes I'm my age so I get away with it. I don't even think he knows how old I am. He guessed I was nineteen. Ain't he cute?

Spock's behavior in Galileo 7 (http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/The_Galileo_Seven_%28episode%29). I do not suffer a pointy eared hobgoblin's haughty behavior towards my Scotty gladly. "My concern for the dead will not bring him back to life, Mr. Boma."  No, but you have to realize who you're around. If you cannot do that then your logic is going to cause more problems than solve them. His logic also does not take into account that primitives often do not operate logically (that hurts to think about but whatever). He only focuses on his own logic, rather than the logic of others.

ETA- When my dog comes into my room and either a) farts or b) shits. Thanks, dog. I appreciate it. You know I can barely move. Why do you do this to me?

ETA 2- I also hate it when people have a problem with me and I only learn it through a friend or because someone ended up quoting it in a quote thread. You're not being cute. I have no problems with someone going 'Shane, I hate you'. I have a problem with 'God, I hate that Shane person' (The internet never forgets). OR, they make snide remarks for months towards me even tho I can't remember in my recollection ever saying anything poor to them. And then when I confront them about why they're doing it they go silent. Coward. Oh, and don't ruddy pretend to be my friend after I catch you doing the above. It doesn't work like that. I do not forget nor do I easily forgive. You want to pretend to be my friend? Don't be surprised when I put a stop to it and say plainly 'you're not my friend, shut up acting like you are'.

ETA 3- When people don't fucking turn their turn signals on. I had it happen to where I had to slam on my breaks because someone stopped rather suddenly and without warning to turn left. Thanks, I needed that. My left shoulder still hurts thanks to the seatbelt. We have turn signals for a reason. Use them.

ETA 4- I'm really annoyed today. I have this kind of sinus headache thing that I can't treat. My doctor hasn't responded to me about a possible infection and it's been a week. Gonna have to call and bitch 'em out.

I only took my shoe off in the first place because I bumped it and it hurt a little. I'm not sure what happened to cause this.

While I like to turn my music up as much as the next guy while driving, I fucking hate those guys who crank it up to like ear splitting decibels, and fucking have the loud as fuck subwoofers to fucking vibrate the entire fucking neighborhood.  I would ask if they had a threshold of pain for noise, but they probably blew out their goddamn hearing years ago.

While I do like bass to some extent, I think the line should be drawn (at least out in public) where if it vibrates your internal organs (I can actually feel my guts wibble, let alone my ear drums), it's TOO DAMN LOUD.

My brother thinks Axe is a good cologne. It smells worse than it normally does, which is something.

People who wear Axe overdo it. My brother used to wear it a lot because he thought it covered up the scent of not showering. I never noticed the products themselves having unusually intense smells, it just seems like Axe wearers aren't satisfied with the application of their cologne or body spray until they're emanating fumes visible to the naked eye. I never notice this with anything else. Except old ladies, who wear perfume by the oil tanker.

Yup. Right click the MSN executable. Click Compatibility. Set it to XP or Vista compatibility. This then allows you to stick it back into the task tray like before in olden times.

Background: I wear makeup fairly regularly now, when I feel like looking nice, but I didn't start wearing it until I was twenty and didn't really go full-on painted lady until two or three years ago.

So I'm quite mercifully unburdened by the stereotypical female anxiety about being seen without makeup on. Lately I've found myself feeling a little self-conscious without it, but it was one of those very rare circumstances under which I could rationally waylay my fear by attributing my worries to my shit self-esteem and assured myself that I was only judging myself way harsher than reality allowed for. And that was that, until this evening.

I work in a store two towns away from where I live, and there's another of the same store about five minutes from my apartment, so I only ever go to work when I actually have a shift. Since I don't want to give anyone the impression I don't give a fuck about what I look like, I wear makeup when I'm working and no one there has actually seen me without it. Again, I thought NOTHING of this and wasn't the least embarrassed about going in unpainted today to pick up my hours. On my way out, one of the teenagers who works there spotted me and came out with this gem:

"Oh my gosh! You look TERRIBLE! Oh, no, I don't mean it in a bad way, I just mean... you look really sick is all, are you okay?"

I told her I was totally fine and that this is just how I look without makeup. She apologized profusely right away and was really embarrassed at having said it. She's one of those girls who's just really really nice to everybody and doesn't have anything critical to say about ANYONE, so the fact that I looked so haggard that it startled an honest remark like that from her says a lot more than the words alone say.

One of those situations where I just have to laugh or I'm gonna slit my throat.

Call me crazy, but I think a lot of women look better with no makeup.  It just seems... Natural.  Which... it is.   So I'm annoyed by women who go all crazy about how ugly they look when they haven't had the chance to 'put their face on'; when they look just fine.  Good grief.

That's partially why I don't drink any more. Once the booze starts working its magic, all sense of financial responsibility goes flying out the window, as does all other forms of control that could possibly inhibit one's quest to get even drunker. Waking up in the morning to find you're out $60-110 is not exactly an ideal addition to a hangover.

Something I've never understood: a lot of people on sports teams (in high school and college) continually complain about having to attend practice every day, and often celebrate when it's rained out or canceled. If you hate it that much, then why are you participating in that sport? I guess the games or competitions (like for track) could be fulfilling due to success and teamwork, but if you hate the practice sessions that much, is it really worth it?
Title: Re: Things That Annoy You
Post by: SimSim on February 10, 2012, 03:40:10 pm
Yeah, it can be worth it even if you don't care for practice. It's just that some days practice can be really brutal and you're just not feeling up to it that day, but you're obligated to go. Practice can also be really time consuming, especially at college level, and it's hard to get everything you need to done.

I enjoy watching dog shows, but the only time I catch them is on Thanksgiving. I was disappointed last year because there were several breeds I liked in the finals, and then the ONE I didn't like as much was crowned champion.

They used to play all the old AKC/Eukanuba dog shows on Animal Planet. Poodles win a lot :\

Call me crazy, but I think a lot of women look better with no makeup.  It just seems... Natural.  Which... it is.   So I'm annoyed by women who go all crazy about how ugly they look when they haven't had the chance to 'put their face on'; when they look just fine.  Good grief.
I had too much make-up on people, especially ladies' obsession with raccoon eyes. One go over with eyeliner should do it girls! This isn't stage theatre!

Something I've never understood: a lot of people on sports teams (in high school and college) continually complain about having to attend practice every day, and often celebrate when it's rained out or canceled. If you hate it that much, then why are you participating in that sport? I guess the games or competitions (like for track) could be fulfilling due to success and teamwork, but if you hate the practice sessions that much, is it really worth it?
This gets to me as well. That's WHY I quit athletics. I found theatre rehearsals far more rewarding. And my drama teacher could bark as well as any football coach, so I ain't missing nothing.

That tomorrow night is the first night of the Wesminster Kennel Club dog show, and I have to work, so I'm going to miss my 3 favorite groups....The Toy, the Non-Sporting, and the Herding groups
My cousin and I enjoyed watching one year, mostly out of amusement at the commentator constantly calling every other dog a "fine bitch."

I should probably make a drinking game out of that.

Ugh, my menstrual cramps annoy me. Every few months I get cramps that about knock me flat. Usually I just take a Tylenol and hop in the tub. By the time I get out it's starting to work, but not this time. I have some Vicodin left over from my migraine, so I even took half of one of those, but that's not working either (I always save my Vicodin for something normal pain pills can't seem to handle).

I wish I could tell you it gets better but I'm 24 and no doctor will even let me talk past 'I want to discuss more permanent birth control options...'

Apparently women are only allowed to make long-term reproductive decisions when those decisions are 'HAVE THE CHILD CONCEIVED ON A DRUNKEN NIGHT IN ATLANTIC CITY WITH A GUY WHOSE NAME I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER'. Sixteen-year-old girls are totally old enough to decide to keep/raise a child but 25-year-old independent women aren't old enough to decide NOT to.

Fuck the medical community with a brick.

Fuck 'em with a rusty lead pipe. Well, the OB/GYN ones, anyway; I hope to become an audiologist, and they tend to not have anything to do with reproduction.

...at least, I sure as hell HOPE they don't.

Thing is, my example wasn't from a medical standpoint, it was from the standpoint of a (single, childless) 30sish African-American lady who already seems to think I'm crazy (only because I'm honest when asked for my opinion-- yes, I find it crazy that people are more willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars trying to conceive one kid when they could adopt several; if you don't like my opinion, maybe you ought not ask for it next time). If it was from the standpoint of a doctor, I hate to think WHAT I'd do, considering that I was tempted to break one doctor's arm for refusing to treat my acne inversa.
Title: Re: Things That Annoy You
Post by: Caitshidhe on February 17, 2012, 04:42:45 pm
Nope, that's pretty much the standpoint of every doctor I have ever spoken to. The conversation always goes like this:

Eighteen year old me: "I want to discuss a more permanent birth control for me."
Doc: "You are not old enough to decide not to have children."
Me: "But what if I told you I wanted to get pregnant and raise a child? Would I be too young to make that arguably equally permanent decision?"
Doc: "No, of course not, I would never dream of infringing on your reproductive rights!"
Me: "But only as long as those reproductive rights go as far as reproducing, rather than making sure I don't?"
Doc: "...gee golly gosh, lookit the time, I need to see my next patient who is pregnant with octouplets after spending a derpjillion dollars to conceive a child!"

Repeat at nineteen, twenty, 21, 22, 23, and 24. More or less verbatim.

I'd start asking just to see what they say, but I don't have the money for any of it (don't really have money for my anti-depressants), I think they'd look at me weird since I'm a virgin (haven't had an...exam yet, ever...shh.), and you just know my insurance doesn't cover it (it's explicitly laid out that 'elective sterilization' is not covered, period...pregnancy care is covered, but not elective sterilization).

I'm not an idiot, I know I'm ugly as sin and have a terrible personality (I would eat any romantic partners alive .-. I'm like a praying mantis) but rape doesn't depend on the attractiveness of the victim or zir relationship status, regardless of what some people think, so it's still possible for me to be impregnated. From my finances and what I've heard from you and other women, though, I'd have better luck gambling that I'm sterile like my great-aunts.
Title: Re: Things That Annoy You
Post by: Caitshidhe on February 17, 2012, 05:25:47 pm
Funny how insurance companies aren't willing to pay the one-time cost of sterilization but are more than happy to shovel money with a bulldozer to people who want to add to human overpopulation. And let's not forget the complications that can come with pregnancy, versus the almost none that come with surgical sterilization.

I'm just completely convinced at this point that it has fuck all to do with wanting people to 'keep their options open' or insurance companies/national health (I've heard NHS in the UK and Canadaland won't pay for sterilization, either, but someone who lives in either place would obviously know better than I do) trying to save money. It's all about making damn sure women are popping out babies.

My mom has a nasty habit of asking me to come with her to "the store"... then mentioning after I've signed on and got ready that "the store" actually equals about five places. This sucks because I have no idea how long to tell people I'll be gone. >:(

EDIT: Okay, got a better one. Yesterday, I decided to, for shits and giggles, see how much it'd cost for me to assemble a new computer system. Not a top-of-the-line one, but one a few steps up from what I currently have, a Frankensteinian assembly of older parts that are more difficult to find replacements for. Top to bottom, the entire thing comes out to about $1100. When I told Mom about what I did, she immediately jumped to about three conclusions:

1. I've gone beyond looking prices up and made plans.
2. Any money I receive will go directly to this computer.
3. I will neglect my credit card and insurance to do it.

For fucks sake! I'm not a fucking idiot! We're talking a year down the line, so I don't have a repeat of the time my computer died on me without any plan for a replacement! For that matter, I love the assumption that I'm going to be completely irresponsible with my money, like I'm a fucking teenager. Best of all, when I called her on that fact, she said that I wasn't responsible because two months ago, my grandmother gave me $450, and I thought it would allow mom to not have to worry about me financially for four months, and it only lasted two. Well, you're right mom. I fucked up. I somehow thought you would continue to pay for my sisters to put gas on my car (they use it 99% of the time instead of me), and that you wouldn't borrow $70 of it, and not pay it back! This is some bullshit out of my mother. Fucking bullshit.

Look, I've had problems with money back when I was a teenager, but to say that I would blatantly ignore my responsibilities in favor of a shiny new toy, at my age, is fucking retarded. The fact that they could be so judgmental so fast over so little is...

I kind of know how you feel.  My mom, who I've pretty much distanced myself from, takes opportunities to lob pop shots at me.  The last time I talked to her, I told her, in these words, to fuck off, go to hell, and I didn't want her interfering in my life if she couldn't be supportive.  I don't care what people say, family, blood, they don't deserve special respect or anything, just because they're family.  I don't much talk to mine anymore.  They've always been judgmental, oppressive, and have always seen me as a blacksheep.  So, at 32 years old, I told them to fuck off, I didn't need them.  And I haven't looked back.

I have never been a big spender except on occasional small splurges like, say, a book or game and otherwise operate under the 'You Never Know When You Might Need the Money' principle of funds management. Yet everybody is treating me like I'm hemorrhaging money and need help learning how to budget.

To be fair, sugar can be a problem for diabetics if they take in too much too quickly.  Also, sugar does naturally have calories.  Now it's not as much as fat, but it breaks down easier.

Something else that annoys me?  Getting hit on...especially when my mind gets in the way.  So I'm in the convenience store earlier this evening, and the really cute cashier girl is flirting with me.  Now, I'm a dunce when it comes to noticing when girls are hitting on me, and my friends normally have to tell me.  But this girl was being quite conspicuous about it.  So, what does my brain do?  Tries to figure out why.  I have some low self-esteem, but I'm not depressed about it.  I accept the fact that I'm not a very great person.  So, this girl is hitting on me, and my brain goes "scanning for sarcasm."  That's the first thing.  But I couldn't find any sarcasm.  So then my brain goes "scanning for mocking attitude."  Again, none found.  My brain tries to figure out why any girl, and especially a cute one like this, would possibly hit on me.  By the time my brain was done, and couldn't find any disgenuousness (is that even a word?), I was halfway out the door.  And now I'm kicking myself over it.

Maybe she was just bored? I don't see working as a cashier being a particularly mentally stimulating job, so maybe her flirting was more to break the monotony than any interest in you in particular.

I am trying to move in with my friend into a cheaper and nicer apartment within the next week. This is all manageable considering how fast property moves in Shanghai, but my racist motherfucker of a flatmate who is half the reason I am moving in the first place has said he wants no chinese or women in the flat. Which eliminates 80% of the people I could get. This means unless I find someone I either have to shell out rent for two places at once whilst I find someone or stay in this place with that twat and screw my friend over because she cannot find anyone to take over for me in time.

Oral surgery. I spent about 2 hours afterwards choking on my own blood and saliva because my mouth was too numb to swallow anything.

Update: Now my bottom jaw is swollen, meaning I can barely open my mouth. On top of that, the Oxycodone/Acetaminophen tablets I'm supposed to take every 4 hours are making me drowsy and giving me a really erratic sleeping schedule.

Also, I guess it is forbidden for me to have a fucking bad day. Despite all the shit I work hard to push people through, if I so much as frown for a minute, I'm being a whiny little bitch. God forbid I be a fucking human for 5 minutes and get sad over getting pretty much abandoned.

This.

Nope. Professor said, "Okay, your exam will consist of everything we've done this semester." Great, thanks! Would never have guessed.

I developed a deep, irrational hatred of singer/songwriter Adele based purely on the fact that I didn't like her songs but they were insanely overplayed. I didn't even know what she looked like and I hated her. Then I started reading interviews and shit about her (since I'm not smart enough to actually avoid shit that pisses me off), and she makes it extremely difficult to hate her. For one thing, she's very pretty and she's also a curvy, plump woman in an industry dominated by stick models and insane body standards--and she just owns it like nobody's business. I think that's swell. She's also got a nifty attitude, since she flipped off the presenters that interrupted her acceptance speech at the Brit Awards. HAH!

And today I read that she just applied for a helicopter license.

A HELICOPTER LICENSE.

I officially cannot hate this woman.

I hate being told, when rejected for a promotion at work, that I need to "Work on communication skills and team leading."

I spend the next six months ensuring I participate in team meetings, write down important notes for the next shift coming in, improving my training to the point that I am getting accolades from all the supervisors, trying to keep people on task during non-breaks, helping all my team members with problems, calling out and trying to hold up fellow team members as examples of hard workers, all while getting comments from my immediate supervisors on my improvement.

I apply for another promotion, get rejected. Guess what my "feedback" is. Just guess.

"You need to work on team leading..."
- Fair enough, my position doesn't get many opportunities to lead projects...

"...and communication."
- Can you extrapolate?

"What?"
- What do you mean by communication? Can I get specifics?"

"Well... the feedback comes from all of the supervisors who interviewed you and I am not sure what they meant when they put this down..."

I spend six fucking months playing their game, and they don't notice shit. They didn't talk to any of my immediate supervisors, I later discovered, and two people WHO DIDN'T INTERVIEW ME helped make the decision, and the supervisor who would be my boss with my new position, wasn't part of the final call.

Seriously. SERIOUSLY. I can understand not being as qualified or a right fit, but I am one of the finest "communicators" in the store. I have to be. It's in my job description, considering I do just about every piece of work around their except cart detail and registers.

I love how blatant it was they made some shit up to "challenge" me with, as opposed to some actual feedback.

The whole class laughed, but it's true. This student, J, follows the professor everywhere and almost always talks to him in a Darth Vader voice (I have no idea). Just...why?

My ability to forget my passwords and usernamers sucks. And facebook, If I just could remember my password there or something like that, I could possibly try to erase that, but on the other hand it is the only connection that I have with my biological father and other such relatives, BUT I really haven't logges in there in ... half a year?

And doing other important things on line... gah! I just forget to take my calender (where I have the info of the e-trainings and such) when I'm at my computer and then I'm too lazy to go and get it, I barely get my banking done, but gladly most of my bills come straight to my e-bank, so all the needed info is there when I remeber to log in too see if I've been paid. I party blame my job, which just takes too much of my brain power, mental energy and wake-up hours even if I'm not at work. And it's not even that difficult job, 70-90% of my time I'm behind the counter facing customers and their... moods.

Oh yes. And even if this makes me look like a racist (which by certain definitions I must be, especially after this....) I really do hate certain minority. (Seeing them makes me nervous, seeing them makes my heart beat faster, seeing them makes me double check my possession and at work... their behaviour really messes everyones day. I'm afraid of them as a physical threat, I've gotten even death threats from them at work after asking them to leave and I'm afraid that one day I'm going to lose my job over them as I'm too afraid most of the time to prevent their entry (some of them have been told to stay off the property) or too slow to prevent them from stealing gas, or just too busy with other customers to even keep count of what they steal of the shelves.) I admit it, I'm racist.

My net book's charger crapped out on me for the third time in the last 6 months. I didn't break, it just... stopped working. Again. The store honoured the warranty, fortunately, but it was still a pain in the ass to have to go all the way down there to exchange it. You'd think that something meant to be portable would be made more durable... but nope, it apparently divides by zero if one so much as exposes it to a gentle breeze.

Yeah, the charger that -came- with my laptop shorted out a day or two after I got it.  Thankfully, the store replaced it with the one I'm currently using.

As for an annoyance of mine?  I've got a random, stabbing pain in my stomach.  It gets...near-crippling at some points.  Dad says its either a really obstinate gas bubble, or a stomach virus.

It's a chest burster.

In seriousness, though, if the pain starts moving down towards the right side, near your pelvis, get yourself to the hospital ASAP -- such symptoms are classic signs of appendicitis. Additionally, if it's slightly to the right, near your liver, it could be gall stones.

In all likelihood, however, it's probably just something minor that will resolve itself. Hope you feel better soon. :)

Speaking of clothes, when buying off the rack I have to get a bigger size than 'normal' for my height because I have wide shoulders and am a little muscular.

However, I'm not exactly large when it comes to verticality (5'6" if I'm lucky) thus my appendages aren't that long either.   To put it simply, most off the rack clothes are either too small for me across the top, but have fine sleeve length, or just right across the top and the sleeves are too long.  Thank heaven for my mother and her sewing/altering ability...

I hate how many clothing manufacturers assume that short/small waist = no hips. I'm 5'2" with a fairly small waist, and while my hips aren't huge, there are times when jeans in the petite range are too big around my waist while fitting my hips or vice versa.

I've seen that problem quite a few times.  Most of the girls usually wear some kind of belt to cinch it up, but depending on how much bigger the waist is, the band could pucker and look weird.

This exactly.  I am both petite and pear-shaped.  If it weren't for control-top work slacks, I probably would have no pants at all. >.>  Not because my belly's that huge, but because nothing else is all nice and snug around the waist.

Re: Clothes.

I'm short. Shorter than L and Cait. I'm 4'10". I shop in petites because of my legs being stubby. But they don't account for my wide as a house hips (which are thanks to my physical abnormalities). So while I would probably be able to fit in a smaller size waist wise, I can't hip wise. It's always been this way. So last night when I went to get clothes to wear to my grandma's funeral I had to get pants from the women's because they fit my hips but the shirts from the petites because they miraculously fit my chest and didn't make my arms look like a dachsund's.

Now, for some reason with guys clothes they fit me better. I don't know how or why because a male's hips are drastically different from my hips. They're also roomier in the crotch which makes me feel better. I also wear male shirts since they fit my wider shoulders.

Two things, as of this morning.

1. Quote from the "anything good happen" thread:

Just had the first Shamrock Shake of my life...

(http://i.imgur.com/1rj5O.jpg)

Yeah, forgot I'm lactose intolerant. Between the cream in the shake and the whipped cream on top... I'm paying for it. >_>

2. The last two days I've had trouble getting to sleep; three nights ago I couldn't fall asleep until 5AM... two nights ago, 6AM... Last night I finally got to sleep at a more decent time (2AM) and fell asleep relatively soon after, only to be woke at 8 by mom, who was unable to find her keys and presumed I still had them from picking her up at the airport last night. Fair enough. I checked my pants and no dice; she checked my coat for me which was nice... she had me get up to help her look. I got up, stiff and bleary from almost getting a decent night's sleep, and instantly spotted the keys on the kitchen counter in plain sight from two rooms away.

Actually, I'm proud of myself for seeing them, but still... I almost had all the sleep I needed. >_>

I don't know what the fuck's going on, but my eye, that I put up in the pic thread?  Its gotten markedly fucking WORSE.  The whole bottom half to two-thirds of my eye is pretty badly bloodshot, and it hurts when I blink or so much as move my eye.  Me and my fucking ocular problems...I'm already nearsighted, damn it!

The stupid process of when someone wants to make a payment on their JCP Rewards card. The register never reads the Bank # & the account # on the check when you put it in. One always has type the #'s in manually. The thing that bothers me is that there's no way to skip straight to the manual part, and it's just a waste of time.

People who get on my case for being "close-minded" by not listening to many different styles of music. Alternatively, people who claim to like "every kind" of music. They're both full of shit.
For the first one: I mostly have metal, rock, and punk on my computer because that's what I prefer to listen to. Since I've had to find most of the music I enjoy on my own, that is, without anyone else's influence or suggestion, until college (3yrs ago), a lot of that music happens to be less than 20yrs old. Usually, this means taking a lot of crap for not listening to Zeppelin, The Beatles, Sabbath, Hendrix, or any of the other huge musicians from the 80s back. Combine this with the fact that I'm just not a fan of classic rock and can't stand jazz, and damn near every person I talk to invariably says I haven't tried "Band X" enough if I don't like listening to them, especially in regards to the "classics". Not everyone is going to live like the 80s is the best thing that ever happened to music, and just because a ton of bands claim Zeppelin as an influence doesn't mean I'm necessarily going to like them if I've heard those bands first. What was innovative then is not innovative now, so working backwards as I've had to tends to skew things in that regard. If that analogy doesn't work, take any 13yr old and give him a 56k modem, and see what he thinks about dial-up; the internet today wouldn't exist without it, but that doesn't mean it's something that needs to be revered by everyone.

As to the second point, those are usually the people who are worst about rant #1. And I say this mostly because "everything" tends to mean "rock, indie, jazz, and metal up until Metallica's Black Album because screaming scares me". Guess what, princess, you take a style of music founded on the blues, then covered in a nice coat of anti-establishment thinking, and it will invariably find ways to offend your radio friendly ears. Stop pretending like you like all kinds of music and just admit that you're only saying that to pretend like you're open minded. I can listen to just about any kind of music if it's playing at a restaurant, or I'm watching a live performance, but that doesn't mean that I want my personal playlist to go from death metal to reggae when I hit shuffle.

I've generally moved away from even wanting to talk music anywhere. Because I've had people deride me for liking swing music as well as metal and rock and some rap.

I've also had people deride me for liking Van Canto and Kaledon as well as other metal bands. Yet, I've had people give thumbs up to Dragonforce (who I like too). Sometimes in the same damn sentence.

Something that really annoys me: job hunting. Every day I don't search for a job, I feel like a loser who is complacent with her current dead-end, part-time, job. Then when I apply, I see all the requirements and qualifications and feel like I'm about to have a panic attack because they want X amount of experience and work which I don't possess (I've only had one once and it wasn't bad, I kind of enjoyed it, but as it relates to job hunting is worse). Finally, all the careers I look at want a cover letter and that just makes me feel like an idiot because I can write 30 page discourses about how Rousseau's civic republicanism relates to Marxist thought, but I can't write a freaking 3 paragraph statement about why I would be a good candidate for the job. Then to add insult to injury, I've been searching for 3 months, so a lot of rejection has to have occured :(. Seriously, I can learn everything in school EXCEPT how to write a cover letter, resume, and do well in a job interview.

Yeah, this too. The same applies to taste in clothing, movies, art, and so on. It's particularly prevalent when you're in high school, but I've run into a few times in my adult life as well. Ultimately, it comes down to the individual feeling insecure when others don't share their personal tastes, and compensating by being a condescending dick.

If he was a real libertarian, he would have a problem with the abuses that are done on the state level, not just the federal level. That's the main reason why he has a bunch of followers who are either racist or dominionists, because in Ron Paul America's, they can have their own little empires. I wish by some messed up form of magic, Ron Paul would be turned into a black lesbian, who is raped and gets knocked up due to the rape in Kansas, and see how he likes "states rights" then.

People who park in front of stores to let people out... when it's busy, and cars are lining up behind them, and then they continue to take their sweet time. A young mom and her able bodied children hopped out, to top it all off. Not someone who needed to be saved the walk.


On another pleasant note, I discovered today that bisexuals are apparently all easy sluts! New kid at work has been bugging girls at work to date him since he got their, and when he found out one was bisexual, AND dating a girl, he starting focusing on her. "I'm not single" she told me she said.

"How 'bout a threesome?" he asked.

"No!"

"All right, just you and me."

"I'm taken."

"Oh come on, your bi, not lesbian."

He's been reported for harassment.

That sucks. It really does. If there's one thing that pisses me off it's people who think that because they've seen the earth rimjob the sun a few extra times compared to you, that they know more.

I don't really know what their bites are supposed to look like, or if they're any different from mosquito bites, but I did see a picture of a rash from them on the wiki page. I would think if it were bed bugs you would've known before now, since you've had that mattress for a fair bit of time. They could've also easily been transferred to me since they like to hide in clothes and luggage, and that doesn't appear to be the case.

That people are under the impression one must be read their Miranda Rights during an arrest. Not true. You don't even need to read them before an interrogation/interview. They just can't use the confession, as it were, against the person. I got into a mini-argument with my dad about it because of a movie we were watching where a couple of cops got in deep shit cause their perp was released thanks to them not reading him his Miranda Rights during the arrest. But, on the other hand, I can't expect Hollywood to get it right.

You also don't need to read them if there's a time limit (so to speak) or there's a threat to the public.

When your job calls at the last minute asking if you can come in, and you feel bad not returning the call (I missed the call because I was taking a nap) because you're enjoying your day doing nothing.

I've probably said this before, but "Gifts For Her" articles that suggest buying a girl nothing but lotion, makeup, or anything else really girly. Because it's totally impossible that a girl could want anything practical or motherfucking FUN. God, I'd have a stroke if I unwrapped a present to find lotion -- not because I'd be pissed, as I appreciate the gesture, but because I'd be stunned that someone would ever buy something like that for me, after knowing me.

Clusterfuck day.  Woke up to mom saying I needed to come out and help unload some rather literal crap that one of her friends brought down (she uses it for gardening).  So, I grudgingly got dressed, and got to work, unloaded a few sacks, and went to get a shovel because a majority of it was in a tarp, and it was far too heavy to just drag off the trailer.  So, I'm walking back with the shovel, and I hear a really quick, loud "BZZZZZZZZ," and, lo and behold, I have a searing fucking pain just off my left eye, toward my nose.  According to Ka, a "big, black bug" just kinda...rammed right into my face.  Had I not had my glasses on, it would've hit me right in the eye.

So, they took me inside, made a cold compress out of a clean rag and ice, and dosed me up to the eyeballs with antihistamines.  Dad decided it'd be a good idea for me to go to the hospital, just in case, soooo...he, Ka, and I drove down there and got seated in the ER.  And waited.  And waited.  The place was fucking packed to the gills with people, and my pain had actually subsided a fair bit, so we just went home without seeing the guy; if it were something like anaphylactic shock, I likely wouldn't even be posting this.  Soooo...we got some food on the way home, I ate some and passed out in a drug-induced stupor.

I'm still tired from all this, but I couldn't sleep, even if I wanted to.

Cluster.  Fuck.  Day.

Mountain Dew isn't associated with caffeine up here. In fact, Canadians are (or were, prior to the change) just as likely to be shocked that American Mountain Dew is so full of the stuff -- we're not used to seeing caffeine in pops other than Coke, Pepsi, and similar drinks.

Being in an irritating state of emotional flux.  Going between down, happy, curious, content, and somewhat irate.  The fact I only got at most 4 hours of sleep last night doesn't help, thought I'd come to the hospital, get some driving experience and get outta the house, but that means waking up at 6am, because UAMS -still- has mom on fucking 12-hour shifts.  This is either the 2nd or 3rd week in a row...  Thought it'd help to get out of the house, too...I haven't been in the best of emotional states in the past few days, and I figured it'd give me a chance to clear my head.

So, I went to the doc yesterday for my yearly pap test, and while I was at the desk the lady asked, "This is a pap test today, right dear?" Thanks for announcing that aloud. Now the five people in line behind me know I'm getting my cervix scraped (as well as the three people beside me doing their paperwork).

Not a huge deal, really, but still. Sitting in the waiting room for 15 minutes with people who knew why I was there was a tad awkward.

Yep. He's a second cousin of my grandfather on his mother's side. I should honestly show pictures so you can see the family resemblance because it is absolutely, positively uncanny. Especially when my grandpa had a goatee briefly like Billy Joel's--coincidentally the day I moved in and my parents were still here, a local news magazine put a big picture of him on their front cover because he was doing a show nearby. (He comes from a nearby town and frequently does shows at small local venues adn beaches around Long Island.) They could be twins.

Admittedly this is all based on nothing more than said resemblance and the fact that my grandfather has clear memories of attending a rare family gathering for his mother's family and meeting an obnoxious younger cousin named Billy--and his mother's family name is Joel. Which is not a common name. Odds are he is indeed related. The only reason we don't know 100% for certain whether or not is because my great-grandmother was from an extortionately Jewish wealthy family (think, servants and regularly socializing with early movie stars) and married a man who was a) poor, b) an immigrant, and c) Catholic. In the 30s this was a huge cultural taboo and her family disowned her for it and she almost never saw them again. A look through public records might well uncover the truth but to be honest I sort of like not knowing for sure. Because I'd be really disappointed if it wasn't true.

I also happen to be related, by marriage, to English nobility. Aristocracy.

And my grandfather has the same name as a very famous baseball player. If you can guess which one, I'll give you a cookie.

I hate when people send me messages of any form that show a complete disregard for who I am. If it's gaming related, trying to get me to support your position that I have publicly stated I will not support (via Facebook or Twitter, which is more often than not the places I get such messages) will simply make me even less likely to hear you out. Much less want to write about it or publicly support it (thus recanting my firmly laid stance). The reason I mention this is I had someone on Twitter, who isn't even a follower of mine, remark about "Retake Mass Effect" involving one of the tweets the Mass Effect twitter sent me because I was doing multiplayer. It was unnecessary and bordering on spam.

Same goes for remarking to me about things like gun control or piracy. It isn't unknown what my views are. A few seconds (or minutes, depending on how chatty I've been and pushed back the pertinent info) of searching can get you the knowledge of what my stances are rather quickly. Thus, the only thing you really accomplish is to annoy me greatly and block your ass from being able to speak with me.

Off the top of my head, I can think of five churches that are within general walking distance of my home, and a bunch more that I pass on my commute to work. I'm indifferent to most of them, but a nearby LDS church has led to many unwelcome visits from pushy Mormon missionaries.

Every spring and summer, a bunch of 20ish "Elders" will fly up from Utah in order to help the local church members proselytize. I dunno, maybe Canadian Mormons suck at preaching or something. Anyway, the frustrating part is that you're forced to be somewhat of a dick if you want them to stop showing up, as they'll treat any politeness on your part as a way of getting their foot in the door. It's a major piss-off when people put you in a position where you have to feel like an asshole just because you don't want them shoving their beliefs down your throat.

I have a very hard time being forceful with people, but the final straw was when four of them showed up at the same time, the intention obviously being to overwhelm me by having so many people brow-beating me at once. Too bad for them that one of my berserk buttons happens to be people trying to intimidate me -- which is precisely what they were trying to do, regardless of how they want to frame it.

Apparently he has to make a phonecall to ask about this course, and because he's not doing it this instant, the girl is saying, "Well, you must not want to take the class with me, then. Someone else who really wants the class is calling right now. You just don't want to be with me. You don't want it. You don't want it."

Actually it was probably the boything. I was putting my pants on when I spotted it and went, 'HOW THE FUCK DID THIS HAPPEN? WERE YOU INVOLVED??' His response was, 'What's the big deal, I'm all bruised.' 'Yeah, but I know how that happened cos I did it.'

My gyno does that. I would pay a four-figure sum for it NOT to happen. It really is unrelievedly painful for how slight the trauma. That's part of why I never understood why big dicks are considered so awesome--it isn't fun for anybody involved. The vagina does not extend into the chest cavity and at that point it's more of an invasive medical procedure than a sexual encounter. Except in one case it's acceptable to make out with the person doing it. Well, I'm sure you could do it in the other as well, but I'm not sure trained medical professionals are okay with that.

You might want to find a new gyno. My doctor is great about being gentle, and never causes any lasting discomfort. How much pain you experience depends on your body to some degree -- I personally find pap smears more uncomfortable than painful, while others are more sensitive -- but if it's that excruciating, it could also be something the doc is doing.

I agree with you on the big dick thing. I mean, above average can be beneficial, but 8+ inch monster cocks are just scary. Honestly, I'd rather a guy had one that was slightly below average than a terrifying third leg.

My parents won't let me get an HPV vaccine. My dad is an insane anti-vaxxer so that's not surprising, but my mom usually supports vaccines. She probably just heard "hurr durr causes fainting" and was like "HOLY SHIT no id rather let my daughter get hpv than go unconscious for a few minutes". She's actually outright stated that if I get the HPV vaccine, she will be disappointed in me. I personally want to get it ASAP, not because I predict becoming sexually active any time soon, but because it hasn't been shown to prevent cervical cancer in women over 27.

Also, my mom won't let my try Ritalin to deal with my ADHD. Not even try it. She's just like "herp derp your distracted cuz u forgot 2 take ur vitamins" and every time I bring up the possibility of trying Ritalin, she says she'll "consider it" but then never brings it up again, and seems to forget all the previous conversations we've had about the topic.

Fizzy drinks are called a 'soda'. If you're referring to unsweetened, unflavoured carbonated drinks then it's a 'seltzer'. Thankfully living in New York I don't hear the alternatives very much, but it drives me into violent unspeakable rage when people call any kind of soda at all a 'coke'. Or worse, 'pop'. They do the former in the American south (sometimes I heard it when I was still living in MD), and the latter in the American Midwest. Unfortunately I have relatives living in the Midwest so not only do they infuriatingly insist on calling it 'pop', they say it with a Midwestern accent--an accent so horrible and repulsive it can spread bubonic plague just by hearing it. Pronounced in the Midwestern tongue, the word 'pop' becomes 'paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap' and I hate it so much I would punch a kitten.

The death penalty seems like too light a punishment for people who commit these crimes.

There's actually a legit reason why a great deal of the South calls sodas, especially colas, "Cokes", even if they are or not.  Since Coca-Cola was invented in GA, it spread to be the generic term for a fizzy drink.

As far as "Pop" goes, I can't help but laugh because a former boss I had was from Michigan and she pronounced it 'paap'.  LOL  I would laugh a little when I heard it.  Though it came back on me when I found myself saying it.  I had to DeMinnewegan myself promptly.  Coke. Coke. Coke. Coke.

Was this 250K personal income, or 250k profits from a business? 'cause my friend's mom made around 200k at one point, but most of it went back into the business, such as paying her employees, purchasing products, advertising, etc., meaning she still found herself struggling to make ends meet for her family.

Yeah, same here.  I wish my psych hadn't stated he really, really didn't want to prescribe me stuff like Adderall...Wellbutrin is good, and all, but its an anti-depressant.  Its focusing effect is nothing compared to Adderall.

As I was walking to class today, I passed at least 5 or 6 older men who were very nicely dressed and handing out bibles. The first man immediately handed me one, so of course I had to deny the others that I passed, which made me feel guilty as hell because they were all so polite. I'm trying to figure out why they were on campus, though. Is that permitted on campus? Did they just pick my school and stay there until they were thrown out?

They are permitted on most public universities as long as they don't cause problems. At my school, there would be protesters who told students they were gonna go to hell. They usually stayed for a while until one of them slipped up and started confronting one of the students.

Those guys were at my school twice a year. I have about fifteen of those little green bibles. I think the men are Gideons.

This girl on our Video Game Olympics planning committee is a fucking moron. She doesn't play video games. I'm cool with that. There are other things she can do to help. But then she sends out a department-wide email announcement for the Olympics that lists a few of our games. We are NOT playing Double Dash this year. What does she do? Puts fucking Double Dash in the email. She's done this multiple times with advertisements over the past few weeks. We've explained a million times that we're not doing that fucking game because it was done last year and we wanted to change things up. Christ, I know you don't play games, but how hard is it to understand that Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart: Double Dash are two different things? You don't have to be an expert gamer to be able to differentiate the two. Now we get to deal with people complaining about false advertising. Way to go.

Finding a massive fucking turd in the centre of the aid station.

Perhaps I should backtrack a little, you might want some context for this one. I work on a paintball field. It's pretty much in the boonies and there's no security on site, so we leave nothing there and operate out of a shipping container. Out on the bush field, there's a building I where I'm located while games are running; the aid station. It's got no doors and can't be secured, so we're often cleaning out broken bottles, there's graffiti all over the walls, and it's generally fucking swarming with mosquitoes. Not usually mounds of shit.

My first clue is the sound of buzzing flies before I'm even inside, and then the smell hits me. My gorge is already rising before I'm in the building. I step inside and sure enough, right in the centre of the floor, is a smooth, flat mound of shit that's probably about the size of my hand. Setting the box I'm carrying on the bench, I consider the surprise addition to my morning. I doubt it was left by an animal; it's too big, and we've never had any problem with animals over the several years we've been running.

So I grab myself some surgical gloves from the first aid kit, a roll of toilet paper we use for cleaning goggles, and set to work cleaning up what I can only assume to be the leavings of the latest drunken arsehole to wander through my little corner of the world. For your edification, I'll let you know that it wasn't hardened and dry, as I'd first thought. Nope, that son of a bitch was still nice and gooey on the inside, with a bonus helping of little maggots desperate to make friends with my fingers.

To cut an increasingly long story short; the offending matter is safely transferred to a plastic bag, my hands are washed many, many times with hand sanitizer, and my faith in my fellow man shrivels that little bit more. I am another day closer to being a burnt out, hateful husk of a man, sustained only by my contempt for the kind of degenerate who takes a shit in someone's place of business.

I hope you've had as much fun reading my soliloquy of shit as much I had living it. And to whomever despoiled my aid station, I wish upon you a bout of the most painful, drawn out dysentery ever inflicted upon a man.

That is something that annoys me.

When people say that retail jobs aren't "real jobs".
My work day starts by punching in and retrieving my equipment for the day.

I then have to audit the food that might have gone bad.
I then have to gather up and prepare flats full of items to be worked to the floor, so shelf space that is empty can now be filled.
During this I have to respond to guest requests, pull similar batches for team members setting up new displays, and constantly contact the sales floor so they know when their product is ready, and so they can quickly work the perishable food to its location on the floor.
I then have to go through the morning non-food audit, which is a half-hour job of scanning multiple items throughout the store, identified by my PDA.

All this happens in the first three hours, and when a batch of items falls in, I have to have it worked within an hour, or the backroom speed score goes down.

After the first three hours, the fun begins!

Every hour, for the next seven hours, a series of batches will show up in the PDA. This is what was purchased in the store up until this time. I have one hour to get all these batches done, but here's the kicker. The estimate for "one person" to get this work done is usually over an hour! Meaning I have to either get help, or literally run and scan like a madman to get every required item. If I don't get this all done during the hour, the score goes down.

During this insanity, I'm required to ensure I still get guest pulls and team member pulls done, as well as backstock items from the trucks as they come in, help with food orders, and if necessary, help carry items out to a guest's car.

And this is only my listed duties! I think I've been able to take my 15 minute breaks once or twice... :D

Anyone who has worked retail in any legitimate capacity, especially at a busy store, knows that it's usually more work than a lot of higher paid "legitimate" jobs. I should know, I've worked those.

Ohohoho, just 3 days into my new job at Walmart, and I can safely call massive, MASSIVE bullshit on that one.

Everyone receives training (be it in-person, or CBL [Computer-Based Learning]) in dealing with such lovely things as battery acid, containers of fucking mystery "materials" that will occasionally just show the fuck up, human blood, flesh (dead and alive), and organs.  Yes, they mentioned the cleanup of motherfucking human organs in the CBL courses.

Oh, and there are at least two devices in the backroom that can (if you're an idiot, but I digress) either crush you into a nicely-formed cube, or grind you into motherfucking mulch.  Not to mention that there's the constant threat of something on a tall shelf (like the 12-15' high shelves in the backroom) becoming unstable, falling, and fucking crushing you.

We have emergency codes for, and are trained how to handle, such things as bomb threats, shootings, and hostage situations.

Retail ain't a real job?  Motherfucker, do you have to deal with any of that shit in your cozy, little office?  No?  THEN, SHUT THE FUCK UP.  I gotta face death and dismemberment, and I'm just a dry grocery sales associate.  I'm a harder motherfucker than you could ever dream of being.

Second I come to find out they sent me one last month, I just never got it, WTF?? So I not only asked for them to send me a new one, but I also got a new account number just in case, even though they told me that new card was never activated. And when/if I get the new card, I not only have to activate it, but I have to change all of my credit card information at all of the online stores I shop at, and I hope I get it, because I have a  comic book (http://www.tfaw.com/Comics/Genres/Star-Wars/Profile/Star-Wars%3A-Darth-Vader-And-The-Ghost-Prison-1-%28Dave-Wilkins-Cover%29___402445) on pre-order...

Couple of girls next to me are talking about a gay bar in melbourne that doesnt let that many women in. They hate the club, they dont like it, they want it shut down. But they want to start a petition to lower the ratio of gay men to women.

If you're gonna fight a battle, make sure its something that you actually give a shit about. That way you wont look like a giant twat.

Also this, part of the review for Mgla's With Hearts Towards none album on MetalReview
"For all its myriad charms, black metal is rarely singled out for its subtlety or moral ambiguity, and yet, the very phrase “with hearts toward none” suggests a painstakingly-curated neutrality that the music’s fiery stridency belies. With Hearts Toward None pulsates an obsidian confidence, a tide that never ebbs. Divinity aside, if theodicy is the defense of the Good despite overwhelming evidence of the presence of Evil, then Mgla’s “perverse theodicy” is ostensibly a defense of the Ugly despite overwhelming evidence of the presence of Beauty. Based on the sterling strength of this second full-length outing, however, the former hits closer to the mark. “Have ye courage, o! my brethren? The signs are everywhere.” The signs are everywhere, but what will we make of what is being signed? What will it make of us? "

The thesaurus. Stop raping it

I'm actually friends with a couple of women who frequent gay bars only to dance and hang with men with no strings attached. The girls Deimos is talking about are probably the same.

I'm not questioning why they would want to go, I'm saying that women aren't exactly the target demographic of the average gay bar and as such it's perfectly understandable if they don't want to let them in.

I know, I was just adding that though women are not the target demographic there may still be women who would like to attend. I understand and agree that if this affects the target demographic negatively, than some will and should be left out.

To be fair, there are actually very few specific 'lesbian bars'. It may seem like there are thanks to the media but there aren't. And also when people think 'gay' some do think of both men and women who like their same sex/gender.

There should be LGBT bars. Then everyone is happy.

Honestly, there's a part of me that has a knee-jerk negative reaction to the idea of businesses discriminating based on sexuality or gender, but at the same time, the unofficial "gay behavior not allowed" policies in many bars and clubs (enforced more by those attending than the actual establishment, but still -- who wants to risk abuse simply because they're dancing with someone they find attractive?) pretty much makes it necessary for these places to exist.

Where I live, we have quote en quote gay bars but everyone goes there. Straight allies, gay men, lesbians. They have ladies night, bears night, and 'dance parties' that allow any and all who aren't going to cause trouble.

I don't go to such places because the one type of person they do seem to discriminate against are the handicapped. Too hard to maneuver and stairs. But I can't get ADA involved because of the age of the place, etc.,

I feel like a bloody ass now.  I had to work today, noon to 5pm.  On one hand, I really didn't want to because my legs are STILL killing me from yesterday (8 hours on my feet lifting heavy shit), but I still wanted to go...I need the money, and I hate making a bad impression on people.  I'm diligent, I want to work...I swear, I'm not just "playing hooky" or anything like that...

I could've had mom drive me to work, but that'd have put me there around 7am, some 5 hours before my shift starts, and Wally World really, really hates overtime.  However, I thought I'd have transport from my grandmother today, so I could get some extra rest, and get to work on time and not have to wait around looking like a jackass.  Well, I called her, annnnnd...she had a vet appointment -right- at the time I needed to be at work.  She's been waiting for this all week, and I couldn't bring myself to have her delay or reschedule it just because of me...

My uncle Reggie is gone on a hunting trip, dunno when he'll be back...my uncle Jay's already been at work for some time, and can't take much of a break, assuming he's not in some city many hours away doing a service call.  Even the neighbor I used a few days ago wasn't home, and wouldn't be in time to get me to work on time.

So...I called in absent, explained my situation to one of my numerous superiors, and I'm here feeling like an idiot.  Ugh.

I know that feel, bro. I used to have to rely on rides to get to work, and for a short period of time, I had no other choice but to go in anywhere between 2-5 hours before my shift began. Luckily for me, there was an internet cafe in the same plaza, so it wasn't so bad. But it still sucked not being able to catch up on sleep if I needed to.

Moar fucking group work... only this time I have to act as well. Fuck that shit. I have a medical fucking diagnosis of anxiety disorder on record and I'm requesting an alternate fucking assignment. I brought it up in class with the teacher, and she told me that even though I get very nervous, I perform well. Which is completely missing the point. The problem with public performance is that it sends me into rumination and depression. It's not that I lack confidence in my abilities, hate working with people, or want to get out of work. It's that I cannot control a fear that I know full well to be irrational. If I could control it, then I wouldn't be going to her in the first place and jumping through hoops to get an alternate assignment, now would I? I don't ask for this shit often and I've done public speaking in group projects in the past, but the addition of acting adds a whole new dimension of awkward for me. She better write back to me soon because I don't want to leave my assigned group members stranded halfway through the project.

I just wasted nearly 3 hours working on a presentation with my group members that's due tomorrow. One girl in my group, Katie, invited us all over to her place because we wanted to get it done tonight, and what does she do? She sits there eating, playing strange music to distract us, and fucking around with the powerpoint of a fellow group member. Oh, and later she invites her boyfriend over so she can make out with him. We have a 20-page group paper due tomorrow that I'm supposed to be editing, and two of my group members have contributed nothing (we're supposed to do 5 pages each). In the time I was over there, I got exactly one thing done: the introduction for our paper, which I wrote because I don't trust any of the others to do it. Katie kicked us out (thank jebus) because she said she wanted to sleep so she could get up early and write her paper. There's a brilliant idea -- do the shit at the last second so I have no time to do editing. Fuck this group. If I get a shitty grade, I have no problem with emailing the professor about how awful they were.

I just went to do a batch of laundry and when I opened the washer door a bunch of dirty water came flooding out :\

We're gonna have to get a plumber over to check it out, and we really can't afford it right now ._.

Update: The plumber came over and basically gave us the worst news possible. The day we have feared has finally come. The cesspool has failed. That means we need to get a septic tank put in. That's going to upwards of $10,000 or more.

I don't even fucking know anymore.

Cesspool?  10,000$

Where do you live?  I live in Bumfuck GA, USA and the county health dept. code requires a septic tank.  Cesspools are NOT allowed.
I ask, because I don't recall our septic take upon having the house I live in now built costing anywhere around $10,000.

Cesspools aren't allowed here either. If you have one, they can't force you to change it unless you are trying to sell your house.

My grandmother wanted to get it switched decades ago, but the town kept saying that our area would be hooked up to the sewer system. She didn't want to spend the money on a tank if the sewer was going to come through a year or two later. The sewer never came, though, and so here we are.

It may end up being considerably less than 10k, but we were warned that it might be that much. We really don't know until we get things worked out and the ball rolling. Either way, we can't afford it.

Haha, I've got a disability advocate on my side already.  In fact, its the lady I do work for during the bi-annual yard sale.  I told them, in no uncertain terms that I suffer from social anxiety disorder, mild OCD, and ADHD.  I believe the term she used was "reasonable accommodation."  Let's see what magic she can work...she said she'd call once she's done some digging.  I like her.

People who expect everyone else to constantly do them favours, and then whine, piss and moan when someone asks for one tiny little favour in return.

That sounds JUST like Drew.  He's got NO fucking problems asking to borrow games and shit, and he's also got NO problems claiming said games in the name of GAWD (whose protection disappears the moment my brother and I appear on his doorstep, demanding our shit back...funny, that.), but...well, I'll give you an example.

A few days ago, I got sick at work...I don't know if it was bad canned pasta or severe stress, but I was vomiting very badly and one of my managers told me, in no uncertain terms, to go home.  Well, I talked to Brit, and she said Drew was in-transit and could just drive a wee longer to come get me.  So, I texted him and asked, I told him that I was puking up my whole stomach contents...and the piece of shit had the fucking nerve to demand gas money from me.  Motherfucker, the only reason I could text you was because I'd vomited so much, there wasn't anything LEFT in my stomach I could puke up.  I DON'T NEED YOUR BULLSHIT.

Needless to say, I got a ride from Brit who used Granny's car, which ISN'T a barely-working piece of shit.  Fuck that asshole.  In the ass.  With a cactus coated in salt.

I received the same line, but from the fan-fic author. He wrote only in endless pargraphs (minimum 12 sentences), hiding the dialogue inside. The story was solid, but since he was getting grief, I decided to be helpful and showed him how to break down these paragraphs into a format that more people would like to read (ie, how every single goddamn book on the planet has done it since the end of the romantic era of Victorian literature!).

"This isn't a writing course, I just want to get the stories out. What are you, and English major?"

I've helped many a fan-fic writer in the same way, and I'm often suprised how my simple suggestions of hitting return once in awhile and separating dialogue is seen as mind-blowing.

Wanna hear something really sad? I didn't know to do that until grade 9 or so... First story I tried to write failed miserably as soon as I started to write dialogue because I didn't know it got its own paragraph. Keep in mind I am, and have always been, a voracious reader, I should have already known that. The irony of this all being that I want to get into the editing and publishing industry at some point.

Segueing perfectly back on topic, I'm annoyed at how my (now former) high school had a creative writing class that I couldn't take because I was taking applied-level classes and not academic-level classes. It was an academic level class, apparently. I was in the wrong tier. Ugh.

Segueing perfectly back on topic, I'm annoyed at how my (now former) high school had a creative writing class that I couldn't take because I was taking applied-level classes and not academic-level classes. It was an academic level class, apparently. I was in the wrong tier. Ugh.
When I started writing I just picked up a goosebumps book and copied Stine's editing. Say what you will about those books, but he can get them out like a machine!

I'm annoyed that I half the fellow team members at work are getting pissed at our team leaders over things said team leaders can't control. Corporate headquarters makes decisions about work compensation that isn't your hours and raises. Get together and make your argument to our rep, and stop yelling at our manager who's been nothing but good to us!

Yeah, come and yell at my ex-managers, instead!

On the topic of spacing for dialogue and such...its like basic GUI design, all you need are a few examples of how its done by a professional.  You don't need to read labyrinthine tomes on composition and style, just read a book.  Unless that book is either the Bible or Twilight.

I still don't understand how people can miss such basic, fundamental principles of GUI design...  I understand being inexperienced, I understand wanting to have your own style, but if that style comes at the expense of user-friendliness, then your style needs revision.  People won't want to use your software if it isn't user-friendly.

Otend's video about SCP-173 in Disturbing Images did not, at first glance, affect me. I had a number of logical questions and while the bit at the end startled me, I just didn't find it scary. Apparently, my subconscious took this to mean a challenge. It's actually quite fond of fucking withe me this way.

"Professional" atheists who seem to enjoy getting in to pissing matches over how much more charitable atheist groups are than churches. Yes, I get it, the RCC hordes a ton of resources that could be put to better use, that doesn't mean we need to go about bragging about how more of our donated time/money is put towards the actual charity in question. If you want to point out the statistics in order to put pressure on religious institutions, fine, but don't go around bragging about how much better 'our side' is just because we're more efficient. It's petty, and only serves to reinforce the 'atheists are arrogant' image.

Your FICA and your Health Insurance teamed up in a tornado tag match against your State and Federal taxes. Instead of lowering the rates, though, it turned into an out-of-control slobber-knocker, wherein special interest groups stormed the ring, creating a double DQ and a commissioner's decision to turn everyone in the ring into increased taxes.

Hence half your paycheck disappearing. That's how things would work if I ran the IRS, anyway.

Got my first review on my fanfiction. You tell me what part is annoying:

"I just read through all of this and it's good, but it is dialogue heavy. I suggest that maybe you focus on one thing at a time. Fanfiction is not advanced litrature, and people just want to come and casually read about there favorite fandom."

>___>

I suppose that's what I get for saying "any and all reviews welcome."
I received the same line, but from the fan-fic author. He wrote only in endless pargraphs (minimum 12 sentences), hiding the dialogue inside. The story was solid, but since he was getting grief, I decided to be helpful and showed him how to break down these paragraphs into a format that more people would like to read (ie, how every single goddamn book on the planet has done it since the end of the romantic era of Victorian literature!).

"This isn't a writing course, I just want to get the stories out. What are you, and English major?"


>___< Yes.... yes I am. Congrats on having no one want to read your shit.

I've helped many a fan-fic writer in the same way, and I'm often suprised how my simple suggestions of hitting return once in awhile and separating dialogue is seen as mind-blowing. I'd always assumed most fan-fic writers at least read a book or two and would, you know, at least try to copy their favorite authors until they found a voice.

These are what annoy me.  Typos I can handle.  Spelling mistakes on not-so-common words I can handle.  But not knowing the difference between, "An" and "And?"  That's just laziness, even for just fan fiction.

As for dialog-heavy vs. text-heavy, it all depends on the specific story.  But both comments about, "This isn't advanced Lit," just make them sound lazy.

My fic is both dialogue and text-heavy. But I don't do one-shots because it's practically impossible for me to. Working on Chapter Seventeen now. But what's annoying me is it feels rushed, even if it has taken me 16 chapters prior to get to where I'm at now.

My track record is terrible when it comes to length and completion. I'm fine with producing short stories or the first few chapters of a novel, but anything longer and I tend to lose interest pretty quickly. The longest completed rough draft I've managed to complete was novella length, and pretty much anything that's remotely polished -- let alone a final draft -- will be a short story.

To demonstrate the point: The longest published story on my old Fiction Press account is a mere 2,797 words.

Opal???

Opal's not a bad name if it goes with the kid.  People should do what some Indian tribes did.  Give their kid a childhood name, then when they come of age, they get to pick a name for themselves, or be assigned one based on their personalities.

Children annoy me, particularly my cousin's four-year-old daughter who never leaves me alone. I hate kids so much that I feel like I emit some sort of angry glow, and yet they all flock to me. This one is bossy, bratty, and obnoxious. She once ordered me to put another kid in timeout because she had to share with him. Order me again and I'll throw your ass in timeout.

Also, there is a bear on my deck right now. I know he always comes around this time, but he makes a LOT of noise, and any loud thumps outside at night always make me think SERIAL KILLER. Sometimes it's not even a lot of noise, but just the right amount to fucking scare you because you're not 100% positive it's a bear.

And he's pawing at the door. T_T

I swear, let ME be in control of the finances, and this shit wouldn't happen!  I'm a fucking tightwad when it comes to money, and I've been known to hold on to money for months without spending a single dime of it.  I will be a strict motherfucker with it, dad will get his $100 allowance and not a fucking penny more.  He pisses it away on weed?  Not my god damned problem.

People like that are especially annoying in the winter. They think because they've got a big vehicle and four wheel drive that they can go normal highway speed when the roads are slush and ice. Guess what kind of vehicle I always see crashed through the guardrails?

4 wheel drive just means two more wheels spinning when you're sliding pathetically down the road with no control whatsoever.  At least, that's been from my experience in what I've seen.  Maybe they just didn't know how to use the awesome mega power of 4WD.

There were hecklers at a Biden rally today. At least one of them was some twenty-year-old anarchist (he drew the symbol in Sharpie on his Obama poster) who deliberately provoked the police presence there and then tried to make it look like they were attacking him. There was another one who pretended to be an Obama official, told everyone to try to drown out the hecklers by saying "Yes We Can" and then it actually happened and it was actually to drown out Biden's voice and it was so embarrassing gaaaaawd. I'm all for peaceful protest, but 1) don't deliberately provoke people and then film it so you look like the good guy, you're just as ad as Breitbart and his Planned Parenthood videos, 2) don't try to drown out people when they're talking because standing silently works better, and 3) don't deliberately mislead people, that's called being an asshole.

She just recently had an appointment and was on the phone with a lady making another one. She wasn't sure exactly why she needed another one so soon, so she asked the lady, and before she could get an answer, the doc was suddenly on the phone yelling at her for questioning such a thing.

Incidentally, if any of you lot don't much care for me, now would be the perfect time to kill me. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Furthermore, this Lemsip I've been chugging has been as useful as a boat in a desert. For something that claims to be a decongestant, there's precious little decongesting going on around here.

The variety of adverts pisses me off on youku. I have no problem with adverts, but when it is the same fucking 30-second advert (at the beginning and end of the video) about people wrestling over ice-cream for every fucking two-minute video I have been watching for two hours, it gets a mite tiresome. Thank god you have the option to mute it.

Normally you should also ask about their preferred pronoun. But if it's someone on the street, the term is often 'zie'.

Use (singular) they. Many people in society don't know what zie and xir are, and its just easier to use they. Such as (in reference to an androgynous person) "They're just going out to lunch" or "They enjoy bowling."

Other than that, clothes are usually a pretty good tell. Not many transmen would be caught dead dressed in women's skinny jeans and a cami and I would only wear guy shirts if I like the design (such as band Tees). Make-up, hair style, shoes and other things which are usually divided amongst the genders are other good tells. However, if you're sure they're trans, asking is a good place to start. I wouldn't get offended if someone asked me about preferred pronouns nor would 90% of the trans people I know, but sadly I also know some very touch transpeople who would get overly preachy at you (through what I perceive would be no fault of your own). However, again make sure you know because you don't want to ask a masculine looking ciswoman if she's "transitioning" lest you enjoy being slapped.

But yeah, just use female pronouns for transwomen and male pronouns for transmen (the only exception I can think of is if they are presenting as their birth gender in front of a group, then resort to singular they so that you don't out them or cause them any dysphoria).

I thought Magni ( I believe) just made that up. I didn't realize it was a thing.
I did an entire essay for a final project in a class on grammar and usage, and the whole thing was about the search for an gender-neutral pro-noun in American English. I mainly did an analysis and the reasons there is a need for one, and the attempts to create one that would be commonly used.

At the time I wrote the essay, I couldn't find an agreed upon pro-noun, and until recently, never encountered a group that used one regularily. I appreciate the consistency, and I truly hope the trans-community does stick with the one. It's hard enough to get people to agree to an idea without a proposed solution.

Title: Re: Things That Annoy You
Post by: VirtualStranger on May 29, 2012, 05:59:12 am
The easiest word to use, and the word that has the most chance of being adopted by the general public as a singular pronoun is "they". The technically correct term is "It" but somewhere along the line in the evolution of the English language it became considered dehumanizing. "One" when used as a pronoun is considered awkward and overly formal.

You can't just invent a word and expect everyone to automatically start using it. Especially when you can't even get the trans community to agree on which invented pronouns to use (http://i.imgur.com/rHY0N.png), let alone the general public. Language doesn't work that way. I can guarantee you that if you actually used one of those pronouns to a stranger on the street, whoever you're talking to would look at you like you suddenly grew 4 eyes, and then ask you to clarify what you just said, completely interrupting the flow of the conversation.

Plus, which is actually easier to say; "They went down the street." or "Zie went down the street"?

If you are going to put in the effort to try and create a word as commonplace as a pronoun, then it needs to flow off of the speakers tongue in a natural manner. The entire point of language is effective communication, and if something as simple as a pronoun cases the speaker to stumble over their words for even a second, then that word is counter-intuitive.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't use a person's preferred pronouns, but expecting those words to automatically get adopted into the popular lexicon is unrealistic.

No problem at all. I've said this before to other members, but if you have any other questions (regarding trans-related-things) feel free to ask me via PM. I wouldn't mind answering questions if they are legitimate questions about how to go about transpeople. I also would not be quick to label someone a bigot nor would I gossip about someone because they do not understanding something that is (for the most part) beyond their experience.

Also, VS said it very well. I tend to use they for its simplicity and pragmatism (people generally get it). The only time I use Xie or Zir pronouns for someone is at their request.

If VLC isn't working for you, it's not a problem with the program. Mine works perfectly fine. Try downloading MPC instead.

AVI was created in the 90's and has a lot of limitations that other formats have since fixed, and I've heard that MP4 files are hard to compress down to a decent size without losing a significant amount of video quality.

MKV was adopted by the fan-subbing community because it was one that best suited their needs, and whatever file formats they use tend to become the default for all video torrents on the internet.

Some fucking cat is yowling it's head off just outside of my window. Goddamnit, it's 5:30 in the motherfucking morning, the last thing I need right now are vocal and horny cats within hearing range.

And surprise fucking surprise, as soon as the cat shuts up, some kookaburra immediately takes over. For fuck's sake, I live in the middle of a major city. The wildlife has no business being this freaking noisy.

Kookaburra's voices carry a long way.  Unless you're smack dab in the middle of (Large Ozzie City), you could be hearing one out in the 'burbs.

EDIT: I can sorta relate though as there is a mockingbird that lives in one of the trees near my house that sings.  All. Night. Long.    Right above my bedroom window.  When he goes through his entire repertoire, he starts again, and again, and I can anticipate songs and subconsciously wait for others.

The entire class called her out on this, and she just dismissed our objections and said that the entire class must have not been listening because we're bad students and we're secretly racists who hate her and want to make her miserable.

Best cure I know of for the hiccups is to eat a spoonful of sugar and swallow it as fast as you can without letting it linger in your mouth. That always worked for me.

What the fuck? How can a school LOSE anyone's grades? That shit has to be kept on file for any further transcript requests. As for the grants, the way I've always seen it, the school uses the grant money and either sends you a check containing anything leftover after tuition, or tells you your remaining balance. Them just not USING the grant is awfully suspicious.

Apparently, I took classes 1, 2, and 4, but 3 up and disappeared. I think I know why (I had to retake all the finals because of how bad I was at this class), but that doesn't make me any less pissed about it. As far as the grants go, I don't know what happened there. I know the loans I got (which we already know about) made their way to the school before any grants be design (thus guaranteeing that they would need to be paid back), so I haven't a damn clue where the grants went if I'm paying all this tuition that should already be covered.

I am now actively discouraging anyone who wants to go to this school from attending. I have been for the better part of a year now, but I've had it with this place. If they want to try and take credit for the work my band and I are putting in to making a name for ourselves and actually seeing a paycheck for our efforts, they can go fuck themselves.

My mom had a super realistic dream last night in which she saw the ghost of my grandfather standing in front of her, saying her name. She says she heard it clearly, and everything was as vivid as real life. She's trying to convince me that it's an actual message from my grandfather, and proof of ghosts/angels.

I brought up the fact that she spent the entire day yesterday watching ghost/angel programs is the likliest explanation for what caused this dream. She is not convinced. She is worse than unconvinced, she scoffed.

I told her about the few times where I've had super realistic dreams that included clear auditory hallucinations, and because they were ridiculous dreams that did not involving angels or ghosts, she brushed it off and said, "Well, I'm just saying that couldn't have been a dream".

Yesterday wasn't the only day she's spent watching ghost/angel shows. She does that every day she has off. Unfortunately, out of the 500+ channels we have, there is always at least one channel with some kind of ghosty show on.

I don't really care about what she believes, it just frustrates the living hell out of me when she tries to convince me of them. She practically believes everything she hears, it's no fucking wonder I grew up to be a Y.E.C.

The worst part of all of this is that she hates the fact that I am now a skeptic. Any time she tries to convince me of something, whether it's ghosts, angels, bigfoot, whatever, she always gets this subtle look of shock when I counter with an alternate explanation, or tell her why her argument is unconvincing. She wants me to believe everything I hear, just like she does. It bothers her that I don't, anymore. And that bothers me.

Apparently, getting day gigs/one time jobs off Craig's List is impossible if you aren't a woman 18-30 who doesn't mind stripping in front of a camera.

And regular jobs that want experience for entry level (dishwasher/busser) positions. That shit's getting old.

My curiosity and boredom got the better of me, so I decided to see what all the fuss is about regarding dubstep. Having listened to it, I can safely say that I can safely say that listening to Rebecca Black while shoving a moose up my ass is more pleasant than listening to dubstep.

Just... Why is that crap so popular?!

That's because whatever abrasive fratbro crap you listened to probably isn't actual dubstep.

1. UK 2-step garage artists first create dubstep (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrRcEfulv3U&feature=related)
2. Several years later, several artists start experimenting with the genre by using a more abrasive sound (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4skrhmg7apo)
3. Untalented hacks hear this music and completely miss the point by only focusing on the abrasive part. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSeNSzJ2-Jw)
4. College-age white kids in the US get a hold of this and make this particular shit incredibly popular.
5. Fans of actual dubstep scream internally whenever they say they like dubstep and people respond, "yeah bro I fucking love Skrillex"

Dubstep (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBv4kWsi4TE&feature=related)
Not Dubstep (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3cE9iXIx9c)

There's a reason we call that crap "brostep".

Yeah, this. I've listened to "real" dubstep, and I still don't care for it.

Not that I have a problem with people who listen to dubstep (or brostep, for that matter); everyone is entitled to listen to what they like.

If you don't like either, that's fine with me. You're allowed to have your own opinion. I was just making sure you were aware that there is a distinction.

It's a pet peeve of mine.

I recognize that using the phrase "real dubstep" sounds elitist, but in this case I can't really think of any other way to describe it.

It amuses me that the only reason I say I don't like dubstep is because I don't know what it is. While I'll admit the "real dubstep" is slightly more bearable than the "brostep" you speak of, it's still the musical equivalent of being raped in the ear-hole with a dial-up modem.

This. It's one thing to be respected for defending your home, friends, and family (to the extent that any of our current conflicts do so). It's another entirely to flaunt your service as though this respect is automatic; that kind of behavior/mentality should, if anything, cost you any respect or admiration you've earned.

I normally see uniforms in the mall but that's cause it's like 5 minutes from the base and they're there for lunch hour. Not sure I've seen anyone at a bar. Seen a couple of guys at Hooters once.

People who don't understand that there's a difference between transsexuals and crossdressers.

When I've mentioned my last gf (she was MTF) to my family, my dad responded that he "Didn't know much about transvestite culture" or something like that. Later, one of my uncles was confused on what "transsexual" meant until another one used the term "crossdresser" to clarify things.

Seriously, how hard is it to understand? One's a deep-seated identity issue while the other is just something people do for shits and giggles. I fail to see what's so complicated about that.

Today has been a weird roller coaster of extremes. I woke up this morning feeling generally happy, then I got really tired and drained. Then for the lion's share of the day I felt incredibly depressed and isolated. Now, within the last hour or so, I've become energetic to the point where I feel like I could just run until I gas out.

Can I get some stability, pl0x?

A few things annoyed me today.

1. Some people are moronic and rude in stores. You don't push your cart down the exact center of an aisle at a mind-numbingly slow pace, blocking everyone on either side of you. I understand if there are things obstructing you and you have to go around them, but if the aisle's clear (like this one was), don't fucking do that.

2. I was getting ready to load my stuff into the car when it began storming outside. I ran back and forth with my bags in the pouring rain, and when I was about to leave, realized I'd forgotten something. So I ran back inside to find it, getting soaked again, only to discover I must've shoved it somewhere in one of my bags.

3. Apparently, rain is worse than snow when it comes to driving. It's like people lose all sense and turn into skittish zombies when they see a few drops of rain. This caused traffic on the interstate (where the speed limit is 65 mph) to randomly alternate between 30 mph and 80 mph.

I've noticed that around here, too. Traffic gets pretty backed up when it snows, but it seems that the worst driving comes out during a downpour. A few days back there was apparently a 7 car pile-up on one of the main roads not too far from where I live -- and the rain wasn't even that bad.

I've heard that you're far less likely to be pulled over for speeding while it's raining because most cops would rather not have to get out of their care and stand there writing a ticket in the rain. It wouldn't surprise me if it were bringing out a bit of opportunistic impatience in some people.
