So, figured out why the work truck's block heater cord costs so much: Its patented. Patent #7005591.

It has a thermostat. Not any useful kind of thermostat which shuts off power when the engine's hot enough, but an outdoor thermostat, which shuts off if it's hot outside. Just in case you felt like plugging in your gasoline-powered vehicle in the summer, this lets you do so without fear of it catching fire.

What's even stupider is that this completely obvious combination of off-the-shelf devices - cord, plug, bimetallic "clicky" thermostat a la coffeepots - used exactly as all three were intended to be used - is a patent.

Someone, somewhere, thinks they own the idea of controlling electricity with temperature, as long as you're doing it to a truck.

Note the clever lack of obvious circuit diagrams in the patent, to prevent anyone from realizing they're patenting the idea of power --> switch --> heating element --> neutral, something that's been in vogue for about a hundred years.

I fucking hate tablets.

It used to be bad, when customers would bring in laptops to fix without bringing the power cord. Let's see, I've got 30 minutes to fix it before it dies horribly. Can it even boot before it dies?

Tablets are worse. Yes, I need the fucking proprietary keyboard with the factory reset key that they didn't bother putting on the main unit. And the cord. You inconsiderate twit.

Feckin' Google, has got me pissed with the latest fucking upgrades to my fucking Pixel, it won't sync up with my PC, I cannot get the fucking pictures off the mother fucker, and all the photos they fucking downloaded to "Back Up" my photos, are stuck there and I can't fucking download them from there, either except a couple or so at a time. All the time reading a message telling me that they are planning to delete all my fucking pics some time in the near future, unless I pay for the fucking storage that used to be free.

Fuck you Google.

Boss #1 - tells me to stop a certain process that my department normally does (2 weeks ago)

Boss #2 - and bigger Senior type Boss call me in to a meeting to ask me why I am not doing above mentioned process?

Boss #1 - is also in this meeting, sitting with fingers knit together, looking everywhere but at me.

Then I instantly had to wrestle with throwing Boss #1 under the bus - or taking one for the team and covering for him.

Hell, that's not even throwing #1 under the bus -- that's saying, "Hey dude, I'm under this bus -- why am I here instead of you?"

I mean seriously, :whatthefuck: - what kind of craven, passive-aggressive little fuckpuddle does that? Fuck him and his knitted fingers.

If this douchebag is one of those abusive types he now thinks you owe him infinity favours and heaven help you if you 'betray' him. If he doesn't seem the least bit apologetic, I suggest you dust off your resume.
