was gonna come in here and complain about the minor inconvenience of having run out of nice tea and having to dip into the mediocre tea, but all this talk about how you are bled to death by insurance payments makes me seem well petty now doesn't it.  :beli

No, you’re spot-on, this is the “ minor inconviences that are not struggles” thread. Carry on.

Listening to Limeys butcher Polish surnames on Eurosport. :noooo

It's bad enough that y'all refuse to learn the difference between L and Ł, but the English W and the Polish W too? :iface

My wife's family is ultra mormon. But one of her Uncles is gay and they tolerate him. She has another Uncle that is very supportive of LGBT rights and posts a lot of pro-LGBT stuff Facebook. Yesterday he posted a pic saying "I'm Bi and I support gay rights!"

I mentioned this to someone in my wife's family and said, "Hey, he's come out as bi, good for him."

I got the response, "Oh, I don't think that's what he meant."

I looked up a hormone in Google to better understand its function in the body and the first page of results was littered with posts by neurotic parents on websites for neurotic parents asking fellow neurotic parents questions best asked of a medical professional.

Tried to trade in a few magic singles yesterday because the shop's buy price was way higher than it should've been. Employee noticed that their website price had been updated, but not the list. Lost out on $45 in trade value, which I would've been able to lock in just a day earlier.

Felt bad, man.

One of my architects on one of my projects can't send an email without creating an ebook about the problem.
I've told him  to first write an email then summarize it and then send the summary. Then I get cc'ed on a 8 paragraph email. :snoop

Back in my younger, scrappier days, I'd sometimes write huge fucking essays for my e-mails.  However I noticed that nobody remembered or retained anything from those e-mails.  I'd get pissed that I'd take the effort to write such a comprehensive e-mail yet somehow they never could remember anything from it when I realized that people probably just stopped reading after the first sentence (if even that).  I now write my e-mails in a very concise fashion and I wasn't getting the communication "confusion" after that.

My mentality behind it was that I was a 23-24 year old engineer and wanted people to know that I was on top of things.  Having some successes under my belt also helped reduce my essay e-mails.

so who do you hope the Rams draft?

how do you feel about the start to the Cardinals season?

which forwards should Arsenal clear out this summer? Should they sell Jack Wilshere to City for the right price?

think the Grizzlies can upset the Warriors?

do you think Dortmund will be able to beat Wolfsburg in the DFB-Pokal final and send Klopp off to the Premier League with a trophy?

if the Spurs win it all, how will it affect their legacy?

is Barcelona going to win a treble while not really being that good?

Do you still watch hockey?

I used to do this too right out of school but after a couple of years I noticed all the top management any basically any place I worked usually sent 1-2 sentence emails with zero thesaurus-speak and I've modeled my email writing (and internet posting) on that ever since.

If I have to say a lot of use bold and red for what I need you to read no matter what.
I get that sometimes it takes more than a few sentences to say what needs doing. But you can at least call out what needs most attention.

I was going to advise you send back “summarize” every time they write those types of email, then bring it up in review – for their own good – but then I remembered you’re a consultant and are probably not involved in their review process.

So CC their boss when you send the single word “summarize” Reply.

Having dinner with my brother and dad tonight, and I figured it would be some home cooking thing, but then my dad is all ''this weather sure is nice, lets go to the [dilapidated pub-] restaurant [that's mainly known for going bankrupt five times over the ten years we've known about it] down the street. They're having an all you can eat taco buffet today''
