Why is Thursday taking so fucking long to get here? Where's a timelord when you need him?
The original one is active. What the wha?!
At the time this one was created, the original one had been deleted before being reinstated.
smh. SMH. SMH again. SMH FOREVER. for real, if it's true, you need to be arrested and locked up forever for the sake of the innocent that can't protect themselves. you fucking sicko. save the children.

one thing about the closet/you don't have to hurry/it will be bad tomorrow/so brother, don't you worry
I don't know which vent thread I should post this to, but goddammit, I need to get this off my chest - how I feel right now in general - but especially about the supermarket I work at...
/frustrated... /tired as hell... /broken spirited...
JD old buddy,
Remember Retail is people,
People are stupid (and a few other thing)
1/3rd the fun is the anecdotes you can tell later.
There are worse jobs....
On your way home from work, stop at your pharmacy, go to the Thermometer Section, and purchase a “Rectal” thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson. Be very sure to only get this brand.
When you get home, lock the doors, draw the curtains, and disconnect the phone, so you won’t be disturbed. Now, change into your most comfortable clothes, and sit in your favorite chair.
Open the package and remove the thermometer. Place it carefully on a table or a flat surface so it will not become scratched, chipped, or broken. (OK, stop giggling and don’t get ahead of me.)
Now the fun begins:
Take the literature from the box and read it very carefully. You’ll notice in very fine, small print the following statement: “Every rectal thermometer made by Johnson & Johnson is personally tested and then sanitized.”
Now, close your eyes and repeat out loud five times: “I’m so glad that I do not work in the Thermometer Quality Control Department at Johnson & Johnson!”
Now have a nice day and remember tomorrow at work, that there’s always someone who has a job that’s more of a pain in the rear than yours. Good Day.
The Vent threads should be merged !?!?
Oops... never mind. I think they were.
Just got home and played some flash games. I know I shouldn't get upset over pixels and some more it's neopets but.......
Holy cow! talk about injustice and flaw scoring system.
They finally released the prizes for the site event they had last month. (Some guild war event) Losses against battles/ opponents actually counts/scores more than wins?
Ending up players who had more wins (700-7000) actually score less than those who losses more (lossing few hundred times but with lesser wins) LOL! Long time players ended up getting rewarded less than new players who just keep losing against the opponent.
Way to drive off players.
Ah well enough about video games back to JUB
What will Johann and Hunts new usernames be? Any ideas?
HuntNeo was the second incarnation of that name (it had a TM at the end), so I'm assuming if he comes back, it'll be something like "Neo-HuntNeo". JB just might be "Besseler" or whatever his last name (real or fake) was.
first world vent:
it's bothering the fuck out of me that this takeout place laid out my food horizontally instead of vertically.
Fuck the DMV. I should have just took a personal day. All I need is a license renewal. It feels like I'm stuck in pergatory.
*Wonders what kind of disaster I'll walk into tonight at my store.*
I get dal + chickpeas over rice... they usually put the dal on the left half and the chickpeas on the right. it makes them easier to keep apart, with a smaller shared border.
placed with the dal on top and chickpeas on the bottom, it's impossible to keep the whole thing from intermingling. ><
god, this guy is such a scumbag... makes me want to cut labor law regulations.
he used up all his vacation time; after he came back, he used up all his sick days... and now, he's taking 6 weeks of paid leave via the Family Medical Leave Act.
everyone knows full well that he's going to quit as soon as his leave is up, but meanwhile, we're fucked as he's out of work for almost 3 months because we can't hire a replacement as long as he's on the payroll.
^ Sorry to say this, but it's satisfying to read about an employee screwing over a company instead of the other way round.

Believe me when I tell you that I can't get out of retail fast enough. I've just seen too much in this business. I'm fighting like hell to push myself through college (with a sometimes 20-hr/day schedule), to try and move on, so that I can quit this job. Even if it kills me, which, I'm also worried that it might actually do that - I've been exhausted, and my heart hasn't felt nearly right lately.
My old job had an "unlimited sick/personal day" clause that nobody abused. We were still contractually obligated to work X amount of hours per month if we did not want a reducted paycheck and dealing with HR in a non-management position is like being sequestered by the police.
Anyway, only 2.5 hours at the DMV just to renew my license. I talked with a High School English teacher over the jaded Romeo and Juliet. I basically told her today's teens are dumber than ever and part of the problem is that she is beholden to strict "educational standards". Reckon the teacher didn't even know that R&J was based on the Roman tragedy 'Pyramus and Thisbe' so that says a lot of about the quality of teachers that are being turned out of the paper mill.

A friend told me about a local band that he thought I should really check out.
I went to their Facebook page.
I clicked on "Listen".
Five songs came up.
I clicked the first one to listen to it.
Pop-up window - "This requires a 'LIKE'."
In short, I have to like the band BEFORE I listen to it.
I say fuck it, and "like" the band.
I then click the first song again.
Pop-up window - "This requires you to sign up for the band's mailing list."
I now hate this band, and I still haven't heard any of their music.
The band's. You have to deliberately select to have your music only accessible to those who "like" your band or sign up for your mailing list. Perhaps they didn't realize this, or they did this by accident, but then it's their fault for not checking their settings. (The music has been up for months.)
^ Depending on the state, that actually may cost extra. I know it does here in Texas.
I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.
I'm tired of not being able to just say what's on my mind, make a simple post or describe a situation without being labeled a dramaqueen. I am so frustrated right now, I feel like I could bat my head against a wall or yell at it or just disappear and it would help tons more than this. It seems like whenever I deal with online people I get hurt the most, I need to learn to stop subjecting myself to this type of treatment.

In the hospital now for mild to moderate chest pain. I just hope they don't say the s word - surgery. That would suck, right now. Actually kinda scared, at the moment.
Well good news - xrays and EKG came back clear as a bell. Free to go in a jiff.
But all is well, back at my apartment now. Have the night off per a doctor's note, so no work again. The hospital checked me over for warning signs of a heart attack - thankfully no!
Night manager should be arriving any minute now. So I'll call up to my store and break the news. I've got some unused sickpay, so I might as well put it to good use.
Then, blessed sleep!
Thanks Pat and Borg!
I'm very glad you're ok !! There's no way people can keep up with that kind of schedule for an extended period.
Has anybody else noticed their posts getting deleted? I posted twice in a thread about someone asking for advice on whether or not to open his relationship and it's gone both times. I figured the first time I just navigated away before it was done but it's definitely gone this time. I'm out if this place is into animated gifs and heavy moderation.
Your dozing off may well be a simple sign of your sleep deprivation, but the quality of sleep you get may also be at fault. From your pics, I remember that you have a full neck, which is a factor in sleep apnea.
If you are never getting complete REM sleep, you will be dozing off anyway.
Watch for it and have it looked at if you get more sleep later and still not rested.
There are TWO kinds of people in the world -- the kind who believe there are two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
While we're at it, I have no idea how to reply to comments specifically about my post but yes, my post was in the Relationship forum.
If you do want a reason though, just ask the Mods why it was removed.
Meh I don't think it's worth that much. I just wondered if that's how it is here. Not like long-time members haven't left too recently.
