    I know I'm supposed to be the descriptivist here... but fuck I hate the phrase "going forward."

    Go home, you're drunk.



  • @auspice I am home, that's why I'm drunk.



  • @arkandel It was being done by Glitch and company before, also. As this dipshit’s favorite target, let me just note that I don’t exactly appreciate the call to leave all of his bullshit aimed at me standing, which was a pause in the deletion of posts from repeat offenders, not something new y’all just cooked up and had never been considered or implemented before. I’m out of town and not even checking in much, let alone doing anything to this harassing gasbag, but he’s stirring shit again? Really? I don’t know if I should be grateful or pissed to have missed whatever new poison he vomited forth.

    @surreality

    They got him within like 2 or 3 posts this time. The answer is 'not much'.



  • Beach. Found a seahorse! Might have been alive since it wasn’t dried out. Spent 10 minutes trying to rescue the little bugger but it was already gone. Forgot to get a pic of the lovely little dude in the process. :/

    (Yes, I’m a fucking sap, I know.)

    News stations that use emojis in their news alert headlines.

    Seriously, it's not helping me take you seriously as a news source.



  • @lisse24 That’s horrifying, no matter how apt the poop emoji may be for so much of it lately.

    I bit the tip of my tongue so hard that it started to bleed.

    It’s better today, but ow.

    breaking my radio silence the past few days for a big ol'

    fuck this

    fuck it all

    I worked fucking overtime the other week during an especially busy fucking week of school (y'know, those final few crazy weeks of your goddamn degree while you scramble the last few pieces of all your shit together?) because I got begged to.

    And my fucking piece of shit waste of goddamn space manager never put it in.

    So it's not on my check.

    That was gonna be my birthday money.

    The little money I got to have next week to actually do something nice for myself for fucking once because I haven't been able to for months because it'll be my fucking birthday but no back to the plan of 'sit at home and do nothing'

    I contacted payroll and HR and filed a complaint

    but my company is a worthless shithole so I doubt it'll go anywhere anytime soon



  • @auspice That's... There's got to be someone who can make heads roll because of that. That's not acceptable. I'm so sorry. And what shitty timing too.

    I've been sick of this guy for a while.

    He takes full advantage of being on salary by almost never being in the office. His training for new people is usually just '<handwave> here read some stuff' and the rest of us have to desperately fill in and help.

    He still owes me a reimbursement for something from two months ago.

    So yeah, I've got an official fucking complaint filed on this and I am making it my goddamn mission now to get his ass fired.

    If I could afford to quit, I'd just do that, but I'd be homeless if I did.



  • So the graphics card for my PC died, a GTX 1070ti that is less than six months old.

    It crashed my computer, rebooted on the third attempt to a 640x480 display that wavered and flickered along with turning black and switching off for 3 seconds every 10 seconds whilst crashing the computer maybe every 10 minutes. I reinstalled the drivers, not much better, I took the thing out and put it back in then reinstalled the drivers, no better.

    I swapped in my old graphics card and everything is absolutely fine.

    Looks like I now have to jump through the hoops to get a replacement which will no doubt be 'fun' and cost me for shipping.

    The employee bathrooms are in the locker rooms. Single seat. So when I have to go, I have a litany of people coming in.

    "Is anybody in there?"

    "Yes."

    "What?"

    ... Did you not just hear a human voice coming from in here? Great bathroom setup for people with anxiety, too!

    Maybe it was Google Assistant!

    I've had four people ping me for dog care on rover. That's not bad. But then all four go Wait, you charge 28 bucks a night to have my furry family member at your place?!?! That's outrageous!!" or 15 bucks for me to haul ass across two, and spend 30 minutes with their pet, scoop little, take for walks, feed, refresh water. Gasp!

    Lady, the god damned Kennels around here charge $38 a night and your dog sits in a stall. Not lounge on a couch, get three walks a day and get to sleep on the bed if they do that at home. Not to mention on the weekends, dogs rarely get let out for more than one trip out to a paddock to roam. Fido get's primo damned treatment at my house. Not my fault that you have -four- dogs and you want three drop in's for four days. At least your three other dogs only cost you 5 bucks extra per dog.

    I swear to god. And then I have to mark them as 'owner changed plans" and I take a ding to my metrics and no longer top of the list in the area, but at least within the top 5. Yes, you idiot, dogs are -expensive- if you have to go away and can't take them with you.

    @jibberthehut

    Fuck dogs.

    But, on top of that, fuck people with dogs.

    Moreso, fuck people who have unreasonable expectations of others around their dogs.

    I will kick it in the snout if it charges at me because you didn't bother to train it to be anything more than a yappy fur-rat.

    Keep that filth away from me, thank you.


  • Pitcrew

    @ganymede I have one dog, all mine. Rottweiler/coonhound. You bet your ass she went to school for training, when she's out she's on a gentle leader. People want to pet her, she has to sit before she can be petted.

    But I get some real ripe people with dogs that drive me insane. The "service dog" that couldn't recall at his name and tried to kill my cat. The "2 year old dog" that turned out to be 9 months old and ate my couch cushion - they confessed to their beagle being young, to avoid being charge 5 bucks extra a night for being a puppy - then refused to pay for a replacement couch cushion. Rover charged them. There's some folks I straight won't sit for again. I mark them as such and I am conveniently "Full up". Then I have great dogs. Ernie, who is our first and constant client. Taking care of him for over 2 years now. Albert the old man drop in. He's just happy to walk. Einstein, the wheelchair dachshund (getting him next weekend) who is high maintenance, but fun to see him zoom.

    But I abhor the ill behaved dogs. I'm looking at you Mischka. Gods sakes, find the time, train your dog. Watch youtube. But if your dog is bitting me, destroying my table legs and I have to keep it seperated from everyone else and it's already lost it's balls... that's bad behavior. 100 bucks, get your ass to petco for 6 weeks. Learn.

    @packrat This is why I always buy EVGA cards, lifetime warranty.



  • @lithium It actually is an EVGA card, though given the likely time to get it replaced I am very glad I still had my old card in a cupboard.

    One of my first and oldest dog clients passed away last night. Old man Murph. It's hit me harder than I thought. Was not expecting that when they pinged me on the service. I got all excited seeing the name, was like YES, the old man's gonna come stay, he's great to walk and the kids just love on him and he lays there smiling. Annnnnnd "He passed away in his sleep. You took care of him more than our family ever did and though you would want to know" . God damnit. Why do dogs gotta die. Seriously. Gonna get a a bunch of chuck it's and drop them off at the dog park in his name.
