So angry. For so many reasons.
Oh no. :-( Hope whatever it is can be resolved. - vicster: full-bodied

Second time I've come to this coffee shop to write and ended up with my eyes burning & watering because the ventilation system in their kitchen sucks. I am going to have to write them a nastygram.
And I come home smelling like a deep fryer. Not cool, Old Soul. Not cool. - Corinne L

It would be nice to have a day that wasn't mentally taxing and exhausting.

Yesterday was pretty sucktastic on so many levels. For now, we are a 1-car family. Let's hope the transmission fix isn't too costly!
Jed
Always happy to call the parents. Never know what kind of mood Dad is going to be in. Guess what kind of mood he was in today?
He was so giddy he was shitting skittles? - Steve C Team Marina
HAHAHAHA! Sadly, no. - Jed from iPhone

Forgot parking permit. Called to get on "omit list." Got ticket anyway. Firefox crashed during appeal process so have no idea if it went through. FFS. I wonder how much money the university makes off of parking?

OH, WHAT THE EVER-LOVING FUCK??!?

Is this about the 2 inch penis then? - Steve C Team Marina
not much loving there, Steverino. - Big Joe Silence
I have now scrolled through more of your feed apparently this wasn't about the bat joke. Sorry about the accident. - Steve C Team Marina
no worries. it's out of my hands now. with any luck there won't be a claim, but if there is then i'll still live. i just might wake up one morning missing a hand is all. :P - Big Joe Silence

When I look at the cost of our daughter's hospitalization, along with the ER & ambulance bill, I am so grateful for the health insurance we get through Eric's job. But however grateful I am, I do not look forward to paying our portion.
Yeah, even with great insurance, co-pays can be rough. :( - Jenny H. from Android

Stupid Dish network equipment. Our receiver crashed and cleaned the hard drive deleting all of our recordings. So much for my weekend of catching up on this week's shows. Grrr!
That sucks!! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

A considerable amount of stress in my office is caused by people not remembering what actually happened and just remembering those bits that currently fit their argument.
My husband does this at home. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

when you cough so hard for so long that your eyes look like they've been peeled with a box grater.
i need a cuppa tea. this will make everything better. - Big Joe Silence
Green tea - Mo Kargas

Erk, ridiculous stress has caused me to pack on the chub recently. Doctor is again telling me to quit, but I can't just quit
April Russo
There is this game that clients love to play called Guess the Font. I hate that game! They usually want me to play it at the same time as Doctor the Graphic.
Doctor the Graphic embedded in a Word file :) - Mo Kargas
Oh yeah, played that one before, but the latest round is on a Wordpress site in which I was handed a folder full of images they want text added to, and it is supposed to match the existing files on their site...but no font info. - April Russo
Haha, good grief. "Can't you do all our thinking for us?" - Mo Kargas
I finally found out what fonts they are. And nope, I am not purchasing $60 worth of fonts, at my expense, to complete a task for her client, that I am going to be paid less than $10 for. Not happening! - April Russo
For future reference (if you didn't already know about the site) https://www.myfonts.com/WhatThe... - Shannon - GlassMistress
2 fonts on 1 very busy looking photo, with drop shadows, and not enough text to be able to identify it. But I did manage to figure it out from an EPS that was finally sent to me, when I got the popup of the list of fonts I would need to display it properly. - April Russo

I have about seven articles for FreakSugar that I wrote last week. They're still pending in WP and nobody has looked at them or posted them. I've decided I'm doing fuck-all until those articles get looked at and posted.
I have three more articles that need to be written, but I'm not touching them until I see at least one or two of my older articles posted. - Jed
Aaaaaand still nothing posted. My work slowdown continues. - Jed

Aunt Flow came to visit for my birthday. More proof that the universe hates my fucking guts.
The universe's timing is impeccable. yay. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

Yeah, I already know the housing market is tight. Yeah, I already know I'll prolly have to abandon my dogs at a shelter. If that's ALL you have to comment, scroll the fuck past my post. Shit.
i wish there was anything useful or helpful i could do to aid you. :( - Big Joe Silence
Laura Norvig
Because my loan is in underwriting right now, and they know we will have to file our 2013 taxes by Oct. 15th, I have to take my paper return into an IRS office and get it stamped and get a copy of it. Yeah, I know, first world problems. I will be missing a day of Dreamforce to do this. Hopefully just half a day. Unknown.
Actually, could be really good I'm going to SF office instead of San Jose, though http://www.yelp.com/biz... - Laura Norvig

Sometimes your kids do something so stupid you wonder if they have parents at all. And then, oh yeah, that's me, I must be the fucking nightmare of a parent.

The one in which unyielding passive-agreement behavior drives me to tears. What the hell, people, aren't we all on the same freaking team?

So, you work for the govt and downloaded one of my apps, and are trying to use it in a purpose and manner for which it was never intended? And you can't get your script to work, so you emailed me to ask me for help writing your script, without mentioning what scripting language you are using? Good thing for you I actually like helping people.
Oh, and be very afraid if the govt is using one of my little freeware apps for security purposes and think it's the best solution available. - April Russo
Big Joe Silence
they make you click the damned thing several times and change the ENTIRE SCREEN primary red before finally letting you pull the fucking plug. :P - Big Joe Silence
anyone else bailed from this pile of dung yet? - Big Joe Silence
I've been on the service exactly one time. But I'll let me account stay. You never know. - Eric - It's My Thing
so, guess what?? MY ACCOUNT STILL EXISTS!!! i just logged back into it. WTAF?!? - Big Joe Silence
Undocumented Feature!!!! - Me
i'll give account deletion another shot next week. perhaps they'll have "fixed" it by then? :P - Big Joe Silence
Fixed what you don't like or that other unthinkable option? :) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
looks like they finally finished deleting my account. GOOD RIDDANCE. - Big Joe Silence

I know that the people here at work are not all at the same experience and intelligence level. And that's okay. However, if you don't even start to try and figure things things out after working here for more than a year...I'm really wondering why we give you the title of analyst. And "I can't do this..." is not the way to ask for help. -cont-
And when I ask for you to give me a second to look something up? DON'T CONTINUE TO TALK TO ME ABOUT IT. Especially since I asked you at least twice. At least. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
*breathes in* *breathes out* Okay, only 13 more hours to go then it's the "weekend". (Fortunately only five with the individual that prompted this post.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
That sounds like my kids! And it's bad enough coming from them at 7 and 3, let alone an adult who should know better. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I shouldn't assume that the situation that came up this morning has happened to this individual but by now it should have at least once or twice. "Hey, I can't remember the steps we need to take to do X." is wildly better than "I can't do X." But that's why they pay me the big bucks, to guide them along the path. So a little bit of shame on me for my attitude this morning. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I can really relate to the whole "Give me a second" thing, and then not being given a second. Drives me NUTS. - Melly - #TeamMarina

Besides the green beauty that is the Borland (Enterprise Technology Center) grounds, I love that my freeway exit is now "Santa's Village". I love the trees we can see out all of the windows. However, my cube is still just a cube, and I face the computer with my back to the corridor, so I don't get to see the trees.
Santa's Village has to be the topic of my next #saturdayff - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I vaguely remember the actual Santa's Village. There were rides and you used to be able to see them from the highway. - Rodfather from Android
Ah I was 5 when it closed. I do remember going there. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Rodfather from Android
Yeah, it closed the year I came to Santa Cruz. But you could still see most of the stuff that stayed there for awhile. - Laura Norvig
I'm in a Santa's Village group on Facebook. Also one for Frontier Village. Memories! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Hee hee - Amit Patel
Today I walked around the whole entire walkway of all the modules that runs around the third story of the whole complex (which is HUGE). It runs everywhere EXCEPT around what was Phillipe's office. He didn't want people peering in his windows, I suppose. This meant I had to knock on a window to get someone's attention because I couldn't get back to the proper door where my key card would work. - Laura Norvig
It's green because they use recycled water on the grounds, but it still feels SO sinful in these drought times. - Laura Norvig
I wasn't living in this area back then, but I had so many Borland products and imagined they were all made in a magical place. I was greatly surprised the first time I drove on highway 17 and went "HEY!", recognizing what that place was. - Amit Patel
I remember when, if someone said they worked in Scott's Valley, it was either at Seagate or McDonalds, lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Johnny
Yay! After 12 years with the company (being the first employee after the directors) I'm finally getting a work phone. Mind you, when I say work phone I mean they're getting my personal number ported to their carrier on a cheap BYO plan. So my 2 year old battery fucked iPhone 5 is my new phone...
Everyone else in the company is getting new iPhone 6s... even the part time secretary. The existing non-fucked iPhone 5Ss are going to the director's grandchildren. I'm super grateful for the phone plan because it's $60 a month I don't have to spend but I can't say it doesn't sting just a little bit. - Johnny
Gah. :( Maybe time for a mysterious accident to happen to your phone? - Stephen Mack
The thing is, on a BYO plan, they can't get a new phone for me. The iPhone 5S are already promised to the grand kids... I know cause I was just handed one of them to set up. - Johnny
(Also, I have to pay for my phone to be unlocked from my carrier to accept work's carrier). - Johnny
Boo. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
That's a strange setup. I'm assuming to get a new phone, you'd just have to buy it outright? - Eric - It's My Thing
Eric, yep. - Johnny
So let me ask the obvious question. Why aren't they just getting you a new phone? Is it due to everyone knowing the number you have now? (Which could easily be transferred, I believe.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Android
Oh wait. This is in Bitchfest which probably means they're going out of their way to not get you a new phone. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Android
t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Day One of my new half-time status after 8 years of working here and I get to scroll through emails announcing new funding and new hires? Fuck you very much.
I know it doesn't directly translate to my position and all, but just right now, today, no. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Understandable. - Corinne L
*hugs* I'd have the same reaction. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

Just a word: If you're getting mounds of FREE work out of me, keep the hyper-criticism to yourself. I can take criticism, but I have my limit, especially when the criticism contradicts itself from instance to instance. I'm sure I can be devoting my time to looking for more jobs that actually pay. *drops mic*
Starmama
Searches in forums turn up many many postings by people who own properties in East and West Oakland bitching about section 8 and talking about "section 8 people" like we are the scum of the earth and less than human.
I think there should be a new law for humans. If you're going to make a statement like that, you should be forced to walk in their shoes! - Mo Kargas
One of the potential jurors was like that. I wanted to punch him in the face. - Anika
That's awful. :( - Jenny H. from Android
smh - Anne Bouey
been there and fought hard. Once when I was working in a restaurant peeps were bitching about sect 8 and such and how can they do that etc and I turned around and said I am one of "those" and never heard a word about it again. - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Most of the feedback I've gotten outside of here & Facebook is along the lines of "get a job stop wasting my tax money" because of course the assholes don't even understand how section 8 works or what it is. (this part is about jerks in general, not the landlord jerks) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I unfriended my aunt on Facebook because she was spewing ignorant hate speech about people who need government assistance and why hard working tax payers shouldn't have to support them. I wanted to tell her that my dad was on government assistance when he died, but I bit my tongue. I don't have room for that vitriol in my life. - Jenny H. from Android
Empathy is lacking because nobody (that's an asshat) realizes just how close we all are to economic collapse - one bad hospital stay for instance any unexpected thing can put us over the edge... Be well you are in my thoughts - WarLord
If I feel like engaging, which isn't often, I like to ask people what they were doing in 1983, 1993, or 2003? Because I was working 40+ hours a week for decades, paying sometimes pretty high taxes and paying into medicare & social security. Anyone who complains about me & their tax money can kiss my substantial ass. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yeah, the calloused attitudes towards those who suffer hardship get on my very last nerve! Don't people realise THEY could be without a job due to circumstances beyond their control?. Don't people realise that the economy isn't exactly robust right now, and hasn't been for a good few years? Don't people realise that there are those who have no immediate or maybe even extended family... more... - JB

I want to take these piles and piles of paperwork and artwork and cards, etc. out back and light it on fire. That is all.
