So I'm at a mobile audio place getting stuff for the Excursion.  (Aside:  this thing still had the OEM stereo, with a TAPE DECK.  That's so old school I almost felt bad replacing it.)

Some guy walks in and immediately starts shouting about the service.  Fuck this, fuck that, this is bullshit, what the fuck is taking so long, etc. etc.

Manager tells him to leave.  Dude is like "No. Fuck that. I'm a CUSTOMER."

So I go over and I'm like, "Listen dude, the manager told you to leave. You need to leave. Now."

He looks at me and he's like, "Who the fuck are you?"

"I'm Synthesis, motherfucker."

And this dude has the AUDACITY to say, "You can't talk to me like that!"

LOL.  OKAY.

P.S. He left.

You know I think if James simply retitled his thread "Cheese" and apologized for his first post being off-topic, all problems would be solved.

Intimate partners commenting on my muscles' peculiar softness even when flexed. Ego dinged. Real autistic hypotonia hours. Just gotta keep lifting to compensate with strength rather than hard cut angles.

Quite distressing for others to point it out to be honest. But my understanding is there is no cure for the neurological version so I'll just have to keep trucking until sick cybernetic nerve system replacements or repairs are made.

I have the worst cold of my life. Low level fever, body aching like I've been beaten up, and my nose just pouring vile liquid. Gallons of it. Fucking yuck. I don't know how people with severe allergies handle spewing snot all the time. It is distressing to the point I don't want to move at all for fear of a bucketful of slime sloshing loose onto my shirt. If you suffer like that, my sympathies. It is a new experience for me and it has just about broken me. Boo hoo.

I took yesterday off for a funeral so can't just call in to work. This 12 hour shift is going to be nightmarish.

Interviewed for the closest thing I have to an obtainable dream job yesterday and learned that I'm competing with folks with juris doctorates from across the state for an entry level position that barely pays minimum wage.

Hey don't get down about it yo.  I love my job so much and I looked and people that interviewed before me were super qualified with educations I don't have and I still got the job because I was a better fit culturally.  Just get out there and work it.

PS --- If you got in the door for an interview it means they liked you up there with people more qualified.  So feel proud, dude.

I was all excited about my long weekend but last night temps dropped in the negative and apparently my body doesn't know what to make of that and now my nose won't stop running and I feel like garbage.  Grrr.  I really wanted to do 5 days at the gym this week instead of 4.  We'll see but I feel awful.

Dizzy spells and eye focus issues lately. Called my dad to ask about medical history because I figured it was just me stressing. Turns out 2 aunts, 1 uncle, grandma died from cerebral hemorrhages. Great grandma had surgery to fix an aneurysm. At the immediate care now. Hopefully they don't shrug me off.

Noticed my dad's breathing picked up while I was telling him about it so I think he's worried and I don't want him to worry since he already stresses constantly.

Got passed up for my dream job for a 20 year old who consistently flakes on his commitments and who has a poor grasp of when it is and isn't appropriate to discuss his sex life in graphic detail.

Confidence is key, dude. Don't ask them for anything, act like you already have it. Though there is a point where they'll become threatened and refuse you for that instead. You need to make them feel like you're just dumb enough to be used until it's too late.

Kinda feels like the doctors are mishandling my case. They only listed headache and blurred vision out in my paperwork out of the 7 or 8 symptoms I described to them. Followed up with the neurologist department and the person on the phone said there were no further notes in my file. :)

I have Court on the 11th because family members don't know when to just fuck off and admit they were goddamn wrong and messed up in everything they are doing to me. Its a real crapshoot, wish me luck in dealing with stupid.

My back hurts. All the time. At least it hurts less when I lay down. Also the neurologist's office got my name wrong on the paperwork, too. Cool.

Half the people I know are pushing this Aesop Rock/Malibu Ken thing.  What the hell?

The beats are weak and his voice/flow are flat as fuck through the whole piece. Maybe I am just a smelly old honkie but, for me, the state of modern hiphop is rrreally sad. Maybe I need to wait a month and try again.

The "Dark Theme" I had set for the GDB is no longer working and I can't find out how to change it.

This is annoying.

My Kindle broke.

I ordered a new one from Amazon, which was supposed to arrive on the 24th of January. Except the tracking number stops tracking anything after the customs in Italy (why did they even send it from Italy when I ordered from amazon.de?), which gives me the impression it was probably stolen. Yet I still have to wait until the 5th of February before I can complain and demand a replacement. In the end it will have been 3-4 weeks without anything to read!  :'(

My flat affect causes people to be very uncomfortable, which hurts my feelings. Which I'm not able to properly communicate because of the flat affect.

Due to some weird combination of pressure + extreme heat wave my phone's screen literally warped in the case and heat-bubbled and exploded, and of course this happened on a plane while I was traveling to a small town and wouldn't be home for a week. Also had to deal with a pocket full of broken glass, which is already not a fun sentence to type. It is a far worse sentence to live.

Ummm that's very weird for a phone screen.  It's less weird for a phone battery, but also WAY MORE DANGEROUS. 

Are you still hanging on to the phone?  If so, you should see about disposing of it safely ASAP (somewhere that can accept batteries/electronics waste).

They actually have phone/device-with-battery recycling drop offs in a lot of places here! It's super handy. I was able to biff it pretty much as soon as I got off the plane.
