The ladies' bathroom at work has two stalls, which is just the worst. If it is only the one lavatory then you can generally lock the door to the whole bathroom and have full privacy, and if there are several stalls you have some anonymity. But two? You can hear everything going on in the other stall and they can hear you too well. The worst.

I received a gift certificate to the local cheese purveyor. It was for 75.00 which seemed like a lot, but 4 small pieces of specialty cheese later - I owed them an additional 8.00 :shakejoep:

Oh, I received some sort of "you're a super-duper worker!" diploma at work a week ago which I though was just a digital trophy. Like, literally, a picture of a trophy. :trophy:

Turns out it is also almost 60€ worth of company digital currency. Which is worse, because it is now also annoying.


The only thing available for me to buy with it in their stupid store is iTunes gift cards.


I am not in the farking Apple cult, and no longer use iTunes even for music. :brooding:

Matlock's new phone is pretty terrible, so he's getting a new-new one. And his new one is THE PHONE I WANTED but was not yet available when I got mine.

He's going to be cooler than me. "He" being MATLOCK. Starting Monday, MATLOCK is going to be cooler than me.

I've lost 100 pounds (>7 stone or ~45 kg) of mostly ugly fat in the past 12 months since gastric bypass surgery, now I am not very tolerant of cold temperatures.

I toyed with calling in sick today... why you ask? because I felt like crap all weekend and my chest/lungs are fucked up.

But, I sucked it up and came in because I do have some stuff I need to do today - but guess what? The fucking Receptionist called in sick - and when she is off I have to fucking fill in for her. So now Iam here, feeling like shit, covering her shitty job and not even accomplishing my own things.

My voice is very frog like and I sound like a cartoon character on the P.A. :brooding:

But, which hat to wear? The Skull Beanie? The Pro-Con Baseball Cap? The Early American Republic Military Cap? The Ravenclaw Stocking Hat? or the Erisian Liberation Front Chaos Beanie?

Now I can't even get out of bed.

My old Android tablet from 2012 had become so slow as to be unusable - I tried deleting apps, clearing caches and so on but it was hopeless. So I purchased a new Android tablet.

Trying to decide what to do with the old one, and having nothing to lose, I flashed it back to its original 2012 state: a somewhat scary process where you download tools and memory images to a PC, then hook the tablet up to the PC and use a combination of special button pushes on the tablet and PC commands.

Result was that the old tablet now runs great - I even did a couple of "normal" upgrades to move it up to where Android was in about 2014 without any speed penalty. I shall stop there though - I think it was the "upgrade" from KitKat (4.4) to Lollipop (5.0) and beyond that was the start of its original downfall.

The old one is now working so well that I regret buying the replacement tablet. :spend:

I ordered the shoes for my wedding online - and I paid for RUSH shipping just in case they don't fit properly and I have to return them for another size.

I had them shipped to my work address. They came yesterday at 10:53am - YESTERDAY.

Why don't I have them? because instead of coming straight to the office they went to our Mail Lock boxes - just down the street.

The employee who picks up the mail does it at 9am so I had to wait until today, but today - she forgot! She said she will try to go at her lunch or maybe this afternoon if she has time. Fucker.

There is such thing as a Windows 10 tablet. I'm sure that is much better. :rolleyes:

I'm having an event at my work tonight that is catered. I specifically ordered vegetarian platters (wraps and sandwiches) and for some reason half my veggie platters are fish.

I had to find plates and whatever I could and split off the fish.

I bought a new to her, practically unridden bicycle for my growing kid, but it's brakes needed some adjustment because people suck at putting together bicycles. So I spent yesterday evening when it was 65 F and sunny in my garage fixing up bicycle brakes instead of going for a ride.

Today, it's 40 and raining hard.

I suppose we could go out tomorrow if we watch the curbs.

I went back to my original poast in this thread and low and behold....

Quote:
My car got bashed by some lady who pulled out in front of me.
Last month a guy takes a left hand turn in front of me when I was going straight and I got the same car fixed from almost the same damage. I've now had $13,000 in repairs done on this vehicle in the last 2 years because people won't stop pulling out in front of me.

This time the other insurance company was a pain, so I've now installed a dash cam on my vehicle to record my multiple commuting near misses and have proof other people suck mightily the next time I'm pulled out in front of.
