I had to go super late to work and I logged into arm cause I was stressed and grumpy and a super shitty thing happened in arm so really... great.
I tripped and Fale down my stairs. Drink milk and you'll grow Uaptal. I know this guy from the state of Tenneshi. This house will go up Borsail tomorrow. I gave my book to him Nenyuk it back again. I hired this guy golfing to Kadius around for a while.

The world is entirely too PC (Politically Correct) now a days.

It used to be fine to refer to someone as "disabled" if they were handicapped in some way.

I found out today through a Karen at work that referring to a person as disabled is apparently a slur now?  When I asked how I was supposed to refer to them, she told me "WheelChair User" is the PC term.

I fucking hate this world we live in.

My co-worker got written up for referring to someone's purposely silly voice as "ghetto". Not a verbal warning or anything, and they went to HR about it. Apparently it's "classist" or something? Either way, they had no intention of being offensive.

Entirely depends on what part of the country / world you are in.

Growing up in Cali I had been verbally berated by PC zombies my whole life. When I was in highschool got called out by PC people for using the word "crackhead" while describing how I molested by crackheads as a kid. Literally no one cared about how morally abhorrent it was that these lovely "crack addicted people" were molesting children. You see, I was a monster for calling them crackheads instead of crack addicted people.

This happened to me when I was 17 and I was like "Holy shit, gotta move out of San Francisco, it's getting peak retarded here," and I am very glad I did. Oops, sorry, not peak retarded, I mean the politically correct term for whatever self induced retardation/indoctrination is.

But NOW, now that I am traveling and seeing the world, I have interactions like this one just yesterday in the South. Hanging with my bros and a beautiful woman/dealer, I asked her like I would be shot for asking, "Excuse me, you are very beautiful and I have to ask, please don't be offended, but where is your family from?" She answered, but right after all my southern bros burst out laughing like "Why did you ask her race like you'd get shot for asking it? You didn't have to be so fuckin polite,' to which I responded "LOL no I did, I am from the west coast where you can get cancelled just for asking someone's ethnic background, even if you're just politely trying to get to know them."

There's a dumbassed divisive culture war going on but all is not lost to the SJW Karens, just get out more and hold your ground when they are full of utter bullshit. They're literally just punishing other people so they can feel better about themselves with their fake ass virtue hoarding. Don't let them.

Our tax return has arrived just in time to be spent on a new AC as ours decided to take a crap today.

Yay homeownership.

My stimulus check got stolen and deposited by someone else. In going to the bank, the thief had stolen “over fifteen” stimulus checks and deposited them through Chase’s mobile deposit system. How in the fuck is that even possible, you might ask? Well, I have to wait for the IRS to complete its fraud claim which according to them could take “over a year”. I’m not desperate for the cash, did OK through the pandemic. But holy shit, 14+ other people might be totally fucked.

Went to a charity dog event today.  Paid 30 dollars like two months ago to goto it.

I carry a firearm everywhere I go, either open carry or concealed, I chose to open carry today.

This lady let me pet her dog and was all cool with it till I shifted my hip and she saw my firearm then told me. "I don't let you people pet my dog."

While I understand she's just being silly and doesn't know the laws, that bothered me more than I think it should that she acted like I was some sort of danger to her dog because I had a holstered firearm on my hip.

People are idiots.

Have been waiting forever (6 weeks ish) for my passport to be renewed so I can setup some vacations with my stock and dogecoin fortunes.  However the us government takes forever to do that and only does it via mail.

I’d pay double or triple the cost to just walk somewhere and get it done while I wait but it’s not an option.

One side of my earphones died and it's the right side. I seem to have bad luck with earphones but never with headphones.

I have a torn labrium (sp) in my left shoulder, and physical therapy is just torture.

Moving certain ways or moving fast cause a horrible aching pain that lasts till the throbbing finally subsides.

Doctor won’t do surgery till physical therapy is done. Feels like a waste of time.

It's Restaurant work so really it's just me being tired and annoyed with it, nothing too exciting.

I'm flustered on why upstream part of the company I work at isn't sticking to the FDA regulations. And why people don't plan ahead. I got kicked out by safety because of this bullshit.

if it’s like my area, you could walk into a dozen locations, shit on the floor and ask for an application and still get hired.

Where I am there is jobs for days in the tipping or minimum wage variety.

Delivering projects ahead of schedule, filing for PTO, and then 11:55pm the day before vacation, some crappier engineer whose ego was hurt by my success sends me a message accusing me of having a bug in my code.

(OFC it wasn't an issue in my code, but brother just had to flail and bombard me with messages to stress me out. But I am still going to wipe his ass like he's a fucking baby and put him in touch with who did cause the bug tomorrow. Which he could have done himself, but baby needs his ass wiped.)

Misery loves company, but byeeeeeee motherfuckers, after I wipe this guy's ass for him in four hours, on my PTO, but closer to business hours because I am not a (poopy) jackass like him.

Just glad his obnoxious midnight text only woke me up at 3AM so I wasn't tempted to look at this all night.

[additional rage edit] Just fuck corporations. Even if you love your company. Twice yesterday they tried to get me working on codebases I never touched because I finished all my work early. Like HELL NO you don't reward people with MORE work like that. We had a meeting with a "temperature check" asking how we were feeling and literally every engineer wrote "tired" and "busy." Multiple people on my team have complained about being too busy to do things like eat lunch, which is a real ass problem here. That's why these companies make their creepy campuses; they are no different from the living quarters in sweat shops in intention (just fancier in execution). Just know that when you search the internet, a vast majority or you are using a service fueled by blood, sweat and tears.

* Prays at the temple of Margaret Hamilton for bugless code for the rest of my vacation *

I'm just so pissed. I am empathetic to this guy because my company is being fucked up, and I was in a meeting where someone directly told him, "I am not saying you have to work on the weekend, but I am telling you that you have to get all your work done in the next two weeks."

But I should be allowed to go on PTO unbothered, you can't trick me into doing your work for you you sad motherfucker.

AAAAH.

whatever I have like three dates with two chicks in three different states this next week so I can calm down and shut the fuck up

- Separate work phone and personal phone.
- Work phone is turned off/on do-not-disturb except when you're on call or for your personal convenience.
- Heroes considered harmful...if your team doesn't agree (or thinks they agree but doesn't function that way1), try to fix it or switch teams.

Of course since I'm able to work this way I assume that other people are too, which leads to me being the obnoxious dude messaging at all hours because I assume the victim won't be notified till they're ready to be. Sigh.

I love you guys so much.

This whole week I snickered at my lesbian boss who has been unable to enjoy her PTO and here I am doing the same, pot and kettle. You are 100% right that "heroes considered harmful" is the right way to run a company but I don't know a single female born coder who doesn't have a hero complex (in effort to kill unavoidable impostor syndrome).

I just checked on the poopy baby engineer and in 2 minutes (because it wasn't 3AM) I found definite proof that he himself caused the bug.

Poopy baby stopped replying to my messages after that and someone else thanked me for him.

Time to enjoy my PTO I guess and I love you guys and this nerd community.

We've got a heatwave going on here in southern British Columbia and it sucks!  Five days in a row with temperatures over 40 C (104 F).  It's 44 right now and will probably hit 45.  We have hot summers here but nothing like this and especially not in June.  I hate it!  A town a couple of hours from here hit the highest temperature ever recorded in Canada -- 46.1 C  (115 F).


CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL !!
