Oh hey, it's everybody's favorite thread from the old place! It helps to have some sort of healthy venting space for when real life throws us an undesired oof moment out of nowhere, and the relatively high activity of the old thread means it's going to get posted sooner or later. The only thing I could ask is to put anything related to sensitive topics within spoiler tags solely for the consideration of other folks. We cool with that? Okay!

I decided to make a Twitter account to follow a lot of artists whose work I enjoy, only for it to get locked as soon as I edited it. The FWP here is that if I wanted it to unlock quickly, I have to link it to a phone number so instead I am now sitting here while waiting for Twitter Support to respond to my help issue because I don't want to link that account to my phone. Which will take several days. At minimum. Plus I have to stay logged out if I want to look at the twitter accounts of those artists too.

I truly enjoy working in buildings where the absolute masterminds who did the construction work decided that water should run away from the drains.

I especially love being the one who needs to step in and deal with flooding in the toilets.

Really brightens my fucking day. :)

Constantly in search of the highest challenge, this person takes up the most impractical rulesets.
One of my coworkers didn't think that daily cleaning on our iPad we use for orders, or mopping the floor with soap (also daily) was common sense, and so argued with my boss that, and I quote, instead of her telling us how to do our jobs in our work chat room, she needed to add to the list of closing procedures.

On paper it's because they want a way to make sure you're not making spam accounts, but the side effect is it also gives them increased access to tracking you and whatnot - if they have your phone then they can sync that up with all sorts of relevant information about you. The increased length of time it takes for non-phone linked accounts to be verified is an unfortunate happenstance that is probably completely intentional, because it disincentivizes making an account without linking your phone.

The way that corporations operate today is literally a first world problem, but instead of focusing on that let's talk about something nicer.

Nein's brother volunteered to order pizza on behalf of the family, and was told to not go too crazy with it. I asked to check it over before he finished, but he did not acquiesce.

Predictably, he went way too crazy with it.

We're probably not getting any pizza ordered in again any time soon.

hi
Wanting to just throw up over and over because my head doesn't hurt while I'm vomiting is the migraine mood. At least it's over and I managed to get some sleep...

So this weekend is the local town's boat festival, an annual event where traditional boats come in and sorta float for the public to admire for a couple of days and the town becomes relevant for said period. It's also a time for every small business to flood the streets with their wares, and for me the first year working at the boatshed and shit.

Good lord was it busy, and gooder lord the fifteen minute overtime spent shooing out the drunks who had swamped in for shelter, spilling their drink on the floor and being generally loud nuisances.

And the best part is I get to do it all over again tomorrow! Someone please euthanise my ability to comprehend joy.

Nothing more fun than being woken up 2 hours after going to sleep by stomping and yelling from the people next door and hearing the f word being thrown around more times than in a movie featuring Samuel Jackson.

I really fucking hate tinnitus. It's a minor concern, all in all, but ever since i started being aware of it i can't stop being hyperaware of it every time it shows up and I fucking HATE it.

Tripped on my way to the train this morning, so now I get to be in minor pain all day. Also, RIP these pants, you had a good run being worn for cosplay and also for just general class purposes.

I literally just got my car detailed and of course I ran through a fucking CLOUD of bugs on the way home that basically made it look like I never got it done. Oh well, at least the interior is nice again...

so i fell down the steps a few days ago (on my birthday, actually, what luck) and ended up banging up my thigh pretty good. i thought it'd just be some mild spotty bruising, but NOPE. there is now a solid purple bruise about half the size on my hand on my leg, so. that's fun.

Hello, I am a goat. Pleased to meet you.
Lately I've had one of two moods: executive dysfunction or hyperactive completionist. Both produce a lingering feeling of slight dissatisfaction, even though there's not really anything bad happening to me.

Twitter is just disappointing me more and more every day. A few days ago they switched desktop website formats to a bland all-white design that makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Now, come to find out they've ALSO fucked with the order of my tweets on the desktop! I found out while trying to follow some sport updates, and realized the sportsball team I was following *won* their game while I was still reading updates from the 5th inning. The 6th-9th inning updates then came up out of order after that, along with a 2nd inning update I never saw...

WTF Twitter?! WHY DO YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOCIAL MEDIA SO DAMN HARD TO USE?!
