Flip side of this is you just got up or fucked and you feel the need to pee but your dick is just slow to release.

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.

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''

I've never eaten there, and they've changed owners at least thrice since I last even looked at the door, but I have severe doubts the food is passable, let alone good.

I remember in one of my first jobs in college, during lunch break I'd often eat inside the store; there was a little idea for employees to eat in the back. But I'd be the only guy there during lunch. After a few months I asked the other guys where they went for lunch. They said they ate their lunch in their cars or in the park outside so that our employer couldn't ask them to do shit on their lunch break. Meanwhile for the last few months my lunch break was often interrupted by requests to do various shit, and I never put 1 and 1 together.

Got diagnosed with a Glaucoma today at a random vision test. Apparently it can be stopped and I don't seem to have notable restrictions of my field of view yet. I'm way too young for this though, who knows what this will mean for the future of my eyesight. Freaks my the fuck out.  :-\ :-\

Runs in the family Experiment? If I remember correctly, you are pretty focused on being fit and I know my father always had high blood pressure, although I don't really talk to him to know whether that was because of formerly being overweight or genetic factors.

On a much lighter note, I'm rewatching Spartacus on Netflix and every time I answer the phone I have to pause it.

Managed to do such a thorough job of regressing myself back to my early twenties that I'm evading someone's very direct advances like it's a Pepe le Pew cartoon despite belly aching about being in my current state for the better part of a year now.
