Do you really want me making a new thread everytime I get minorly annoyed by something?

Utterly failed to finish a deliverable on time for a group project due at 5pm. Asked for an extension until noon tomorrow, was denied, so I turned in a pile of bullshit.

Spent too much time giving The Bore cancer, apparently.

Really I should have just finished it last night. Lesson learned.

I saw a Ford Ranger with a huge ass shoshinsha on the bed.

Then a dudebro jogging by tried to explain to me what a shoshinsha was and confused my incredulity that someone would put one of these on a Ford fucking Ranger as not understanding his explanation and repeated it two or three more times before jogging away. He promised that if he ever saw me again he'd explain it better too.

Shocking twist: this all took place on my driveway. The JDM enthusiasm is coming from inside the house commune.

There is absente in this house.

There is absente in this house in the refrigerator.

That's it, putting in my 30 days. Absolutely scust. Degenerates one and all.

You're asking someone whose preferred spirit was last relevant 100 years ago, preferred outdoor activity hasn't fundamentally changed since 1885, and preferred hobby is reading books, why he does something that's outmoded.

My visiting mother (who is still hard of hearing despite hearing aids) has determined that her hearing isn't as bad as I think it is. So far I have been unable to think of a polite way of saying that she lacks perspective, because she literally hasn't heard what she's missing AND I'm the one who has to repeat myself several times a day.

Same thing that happened to my $800 Bosch. They said it was $500 to replace the board. It lasted 1 year and 6 weeks.

so you guys know I often claim that I could write a book about the stupid stuff I see at client sites. I feel people think I'm exaggerating.  Let me give you an example of what happened to me on Friday when I was dropshipped into a ultra high priority meeting last minute. We were having a meeting to go over a deck that was going to present to an executive (which I always find a waste of time to begin with, if they're executives that have to be spoon fed the right decisions, then they shouldn't be executives) and the following happened (these coworkers are a mix of people from my company and the client):

Client 1: "So it will take us 16 man weeks."
Client 2: "Well the executive is a woman, so that might be offensive."
Client 1: "OK, I can change it to Man/Woman weeks"
Client 1: "That wont fit in the cell. We'd have to resize the table"
Client 2: "Person weeks?"
Client 3 (a woman): "No, that seems like we're pandering."
Me: "Fine! Just rename it to Resource weeks."
Client 2: "Resource weeks? What are these people? Oil? Machines? A commodity? No way. That's insensitive"
Me: "Ok. Weeks. Just weeks."
Client 1: "But what kind of 'week'? I mean we're a software company, our week never ends. But we're talking a 5 day week here. 'Weeks' would be misleading"
<proceed to have 20 minute derail about what kind of 'weeks' should be used with no progress whatsoever>
Me: "Look. See that guy? and that guy? and me? We're all billable to you. Given our billable rates per hour and taking into account we've been talking about 'weeks' for 20 minutes and estimating your salaries we've just spent $500 of your companies money about which type of 'weeks' we should use. I personally don't care. If there's confusion around it they could have asked the question and we could have given an answer in 10 seconds. Pick whatever you want, just pick something. We are not adding value here."

5 minutes later they settled on "16 M-F Weeks."
Which personally is probably the most confusing of all the options but whatever.

So no. No I don't exaggerate.

I asked the same thing, and the answer was (I'm not kidding)

"That hours number is over 4 digits. That'll freak them out."

Think that executives from a multi billion dollar company are going to freak out over a 4 digit number brehs

About a couple of years ago, the terminology switched to "labor hours" or just "hours" officially.

Of course, people, men and women, still use "man hours" often because they have better things to do than quibble over inane terminologies.  They're at the risk of being considered double plus ungood but nobody has actually complained about it yet.

It's not even 11AM and I've racked up two Ls. First, The Joker by The Steve Miller Band started blaring at work, and naturally everyone had to sing along/repeat my name.

Later my mom showed up. I had off handedly mentioned I wasn't getting much sleep to her, weeks ago. Well she showed up and gave me a packet of sleepy time tea. Only the front desk people saw her but I'm sure everyone will know the story by the end of the day.

It's certainly been discussed, but the missus has always been more into the idea of fun with the ladies, so it's been all been FFM.

There's a somewhat tiny craft beer scene in this city (Germany's like 3 decades late to this party), but it seems like everyone's already fighting with everyone.

There's like 3 relevant beer stores. I work at one of them, mostly for fun. If all I wanted was to earn some money, I wouldn't even bother. Now I could switch to a newer, much more inventive/relevant store, but I know it would just lead to a mess. 90% sure I'd be banned from my current store's/brewery's premises, which I would really dislike.

Fucking hate that even at this size, you really have to work hard to navigate all the politics. This was supposed to be an easy side job while I'm a student, in a field that I love, with lots of fun people around, and now it's turning into a mess.

Definition of a minor inconvenience that is not a struggle:

Last week I ordered a Moto X direct from Motorola's website instead of through my provider (AT&T) because I wanted one that I couldn't get through the provider- 32 gb in red instead of black. Apparently Motorola fucked something up and had to cancel my order, but only after my payment cleared so now I have $200 stuck in limbo for probably 7-10 business days, and in order to make sure I can get what I want I have to go to a fucking AT&T store and talk to an actual human being, which is disgusting in this, the year of our Lord 2015.
