Even if my warranty HAS run out, I refuse to pay you $50 for a Yes or No answer!

And you! I don't want a diagnostic run thats going to cost me $200. I don't need to be told that "Yes, there IS something wrong with your laptop" when I already know! I don't want the problem fixed, I want my laptop completely wiped and started from scratch. And I *know* that there's a way to do it without my start up disks, so don't pretend like you need to go through your magical $200 voo-doo ritual when I already know what the end result will be! Just tell me the buttons I need to push!

It's finals week, people...have some compassion on a broke college student!

Whilst I'm a humanist and wish good will to all mankind, sometimes I want place a certain group of people on an island and blow said island up.

I'm talking about the unnecessarily violent assholes who ruin people's evenings by picking fights and threatening people over minor things.

Case One:

Asshole in bar last night, who when my mate accidentally spilt his beer and some of it splashed over asshole's coat, threatened to kill my mate, as well as me and my boyfriend if we didn't leave the bar asap. Yeah, thanks for that, we wasted money on a game of pool we couldn't finish and three drinks we couldn't finish either. I hope you feel real big now. I hope your damn coat was made out of pixie dust or unicorn fur or something.

Case Two:

Asshole who threatened my boyfriend to get out of a taxi cab, even though my boyfriend hailed it down and was sitting in it. Even though it was a busy main road and there are about 20 taxi cabs going past a minute. Yeah, well done mate, I hope you feel big and clever for making such a fuss over a taxi cab. I hope you got home 3 seconds earlier and managed to save someone's life because of that.

Case Three:

Asshole who punched my boyfriends sisters mate in the face, because your scabby girlfriend thought someone else was 'looking at her funny'.


All these people and more can go to hell as far as I'm concerned, because they ruin people's nights for no apparent reason other than they're drunk and have extremely low self esteem. Well done.



Oh, and Universities across the country, stop advertising almost all your club events around drink. It'll solve your problem of wondering why so many teenagers get pissed out of their heads and getting into fights and ruining other people's evenings out. And all university-related literature, stop perpetuating the cliche of the drunken student. It's pathetic and irrelevant.

ooh, this guy pulled out in front of me (into traffic from a parking lot, just to clarity), noticed me and paused but would not stop even though I had right of way and was very close, etc. I honked a lot; I thought he didn't see me and would end up crashing into us.

then! he rides my bumper hard until I change lanes to make my exit, then he rushes past me and flips me the bird, as though I was the driver who'd just come this close to causing a collision.

the husband was ready to get out of the car and pound him. I had to lock the windows to keep him from yelling obscenities out the window.

Damn! Road rage scares me, and I'm happy not to drive at the moment!

But you did the right thing. I'm always of the mind to walk away from these people. I don't want my face smashed in because of someone's insane lack of logic..

exactly! and I don't want to act like them by way of protecting my "honor" or whatever. I feel like those people are disrespecting themselves, not me, by their behavior.

the husband, however, is very Irish and absolutely does not see things that way. he's quite funny. Razz

ha! I have a friend (the one that split the drink over the crazy guy in the bar) who's like that. We had to spend an hour calming him down as he shouted obscenities in the street and re-enacted what he'd do to that guy, and tell us that the whole of Christmas was ruined now because of that incident!

Oh, and another thing, why does our University library have such poor IT skills?

Why are so many computers just sitting there with 'I'm not working' lables on them?

Why are they so slow for no aparant reason?

AAAARGH! Parents! Stop freaking waking me up in the morning, when I haven't slept the night before, because you don't think I should be asleep that late in the day! I'm fucking tired! And I get a headache and get very cranky when I'm woken up for no reason!

And listening to a message on the answering machine is not a reason! It will still be there when I wake up later! It will only irritate me more because it's an important message about going and learning about a graphic design agency for a couple of weeks, and I can't pay attention to it when I'm half-asleep! And I certainly can't make a decision about it then, either!

I really do appreciate that you are trying to help me get a sense for the field, and I really do want to go and do this, but maybe not in the next couple of weeks because they are exactly the same weeks that someone I haven't seen in years is visiting me, and I want to spend time with him. And I can't articulate this, or form a plan that divides my time up nicely, because I am still trying to wake up and stop being irrationally angry at being awake after three hours of fitful sleep.

It does not mean I am ungrateful, okay? I am quite grateful, but your methods make me feel like you're trying to force me to make a decision when I'm at a disadvantage, and that makes me REALLY ANGRY (even if it is not what you mean to be doing).

My ipod completely froze, again. Same way as the last time, it's completely charged, play it for a while and bam, it freezes and hangs like that until the battery discharges itself.

I do hope it's gotten this out of it's system before I actually need it for the drive to the airport.


And what I'm really doing in this thread:

Could all you people working in checkout lines STOP ASSUMING I GIVE A DAMN ABOUT CHRISTMAS??? Fine, you celebrate it and therefore from your point of view you're just wishing me well, but "Have a nice day" covers that!! And don't give me a dirty look when I snarkily say "Happy Solstice"

What in you mind tells you that it's a good idea to schedule people to close this night and open the next morning? It's the shopping season, we close at 11 tonight and open at 7 tomorrow! I'll be so wired from 9 hours tonight that I won't be able to sleep, and then the alarm goes off at 6. Grrr...

And back to the regularly scheduled program.

*giggle* I am in the opposite position. I have customers telling me Merry Christmas all day long so I chipperly say "Happy Hannukah!" in return Smile I think I am going to alternate with Happy Solstice now

The boys have a couple of catchphrase pairs that they trade off on occasion, when they aren't screaming obsenities at each other - one is from Pokemon:

"Jesse."
"JAmes."

The other from H.P.:

"Happy Christmas, Harry!"
"Happy Christmas, Ron."

Or you could (paraphrase) from 'Gremlins':

"My father died on Christmas eve ...
dressed up as Santa, then got stuck 1/2 way down the chimney.

Didn't find him for 3 days ..."

i hate my job. and i am fucking pissed off with the company who couldn't afford to take me on but loved me and then thought they might be able to afford me at a lower salary but it wasn't a concrete offer and i haven't heard anything since.

stop fucking messing me around! i hate my current job and i would love to work for you. so for fuck's sake stop getting my fucking hopes up if you can't actually afford another fucking member of staff. it's not fair.

*passes round the humbugs*

Even Richard Dawkins says Merry Christmas! Why on earth does it matter? Most people don't celebrate it as a religious festival anyway!


If anyone wished me happy solstice I'd give them a look, too, but that's mainly becuase it annoys me how people claim to be performing 'timeless rituals' when there are only about three sources on the druids, and those are unreliable and don't mention it. Roll Eyes (clarification: I have no problem with pagans, I have a problem with people making up history)

I'm assuming you heard Richard Dawkins admit this morning to singing christmas carols, too? I'm with him on this - it's a cultural thing, not necessarily a religious thing.

I was Big Grin

I mean, no one in my family is religious, and of the people I know and have known through school (all of whom celebrate christmas) only two are religious, and one is a Hindu.

I dunno, it's like those people who VERY FIRMLY say "Seasons Greetings". Make me want to stab them in the knees. *displays tollerance*

I have noticed, though, that Hindus get more fireworks for their stuff, and this makes me envious. I demand the cultural homogenisation of Diwali!

I usually don't mind and I do believe that whoever is wishing me a Happy Whatever is sincerely just wishing me well, whatever the semantics - I think it's just that it's not contained to merely December anymore.

A few years ago it crept up to just after Thanksgiving and then it was just before Thanksgiving and this year I saw Christmas stuff/heard Christmas music in store before Halloween!
