Random thing you loathe right now.

Yeah, I'm not even going to watch that. This kind of sh*t makes me angry enough to punch a donkey.

Proposition Joe died IRL. Really sucks:

So after spending like 4 hours trying to fix something on my car that should have taken 15 minutes (O2 sensor) I finally give up and asked for help from my brother; who fixed it in about 10 minutes. Clear the codes and then before I even get out of the auto part store parking lot the check engine light comes back on with two new errors. This time they are for non-user serviceable issues. Time for a newer car I think.

Heart goes out to the Musial family tonight. One of, if not the, Greatest Cardinals Ever Stan 'the Man' Musial passed away tonight. What a guy and what a ballplayer.

Withdrawal symptoms.

I'm an emotional wreck. Spent last night alternatively furious at my wife for something utterly innocuous and sobbing uncontrollably.

Hope to f*ck this is just a transitional thing, and not going to stick around.

I hope things get better for you soon, Jonman. *hugs*

Co-workers who send emails to the CEO about something I f*cked up before checking to see that I actually made a mistake.

Spoiler:

I didn't.

Then, when she got raked over the coals by our boss for jumping the chain of command with unverified bullsh*t, she apologizes sweetly and says that she and I should set aside some time to work out our "communication issues".

Is it legal to light a co-worker on fire if they really have it coming?

Set aside some time in your schedule to tell her "Quit being such a ****."

Done. Communication issues resolved.

No, he actually resolved the issue, as opposed to just sitting there like a lemon. He'd never last in HR with an attitude like that.

Well with as many HR violations as Q-Stone has to his name, I would assume he knows more than most HR career people.

Thanks, sugartits.

I loathe that I have another eight hours of testing tomorrow, after enduring eight hours of straight testing today. I did a bit of math during a moment of downtime, and I figured that I evaluated about 320 patient problems today, each with 3-4 paragraphs of history, labs, and physical findings. I get to do another 3-4 hours of that tomorrow, followed by four hours of a 'choose-your-own-adventure' set of 12 patient scenarios.

The final USMLE step is a rite of passage for every MD in the USA, but holy hell am I going to be glad to be done with it tomorrow. It's not that it's super difficult, but it's just an exam that grinds you down.

Yeah... was just coming in here to post my loathe that I'm officially a Gamer.

(i.e. no Job to go with it)

But you know, I'm just gonna suck it up and get myself a better job. At the very least, this is a kick in the ass from the Universe at large to start doing stuff. I'm turning 40 in a few months, and dammit, I am not spending my 40s in a job I don't like. Not. Happening.

Having said that... anyone looking for a trainer with a tech background in the Orange County area perchance?

Sorry to hear that Rubb Ed. But great attitude. Hold on to that and you'll be back in the saddle in no time.

And if you don't find your trainer position, we always have need of a Chief Namer of Things at Ravenwood. Just let me know.

Edit: And for the reason I came into the thread - computers. Servers in particular. Specifically ones which fail. Repeatedly. At the worst possible time. In the worst possible way. Causing much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Why will nobody hire me?

The old Ni no Kuni thread is closed and I don't want to ruin the shiny new thread with an immediate whine post, so the random thing I loathe is Digital River support, that I am on the phone with now.

EDIT: 45 minutes later with nothing resolved, they stop responding to my questions. Hung up, which was probably what they were trying to get me to do in the first place. I am never ordering from them again and I might contact every video game news site I know to warn as many people as possible.

I'm in a gaming rut.

I have a "pile" of blockbusters from the last three years that I just don't seem to start.

I have a friend who wants to play LOTRO on weeknights, and I just don't seem to go on after work.

I'm in love with meat space games right now, and nobody to play with, no time to do it.

Work and family are taking every waking effort, and minute.

How do you bust a rut?

I don't think you do. At least for me, a rut busts itself when the time is right.

I'm in much the same boat as you right now. So busy over the last few months that I've barely touched any of the games I was so looking forward to. The stack sits there right next to my TV, gathering dust. Even when I did find a few hours to myself two weekends ago, I just didn't feel the urge to play them. I suppose I could have forced myself, but that just didn't seem like it would have been any fun. I figure sooner or later I'll end up with both a bit of free time and the desire to play, and whamo, rut busted.

Listen, you little podcast shock jock. I understand you think you have power, and that you can say and do whatever you please to fans on Facebook because you have a one-hour podcast and used to be semi-relevant in the Maryland FM radio world, but if you call me out and try to push your fake power and control on me because I correct a post you made to thousands of people I will start a fact war. And I will win.

I'm not trying to bust your balls. I'm trying to correct you so you don't continue to give misinformation. We are both fans of the team, so don't say "if you do it again you're gone". I'm gone from what? You going to block me on a social network? Oh boy! I'm scared. Unless you mean you are going to go out of your way to stop me from downloading your show... and if that's your business model I'm glad you can't get back on AM or FM waves.

Go ahead and continue to alienate fans and ridicule them on air if they aren't Yes Men like your co-hosts. Intelligent, thinking people have opinions of their owns. Just like you do. And like you, we will voice them.

Ass hat.

Ok, thanks for listening Goodjers.

No problem Vrikk, it's ok. This one time.

But if you do it again, you're gone.

Listen Windows Media Player. I know you think that you don't know the length of the song and so won't burn it to a CD, but you have just played it 3 times in a row from start to end. Also, I am sure that you have, in your software, the ability to determine the length of a song without playing it. You do it for stuff that is in your library.

Next caller.

As an addendum to my post, I can't find the original post he responded to me on either. Therefore, one of three things are in effect: a.) after he busted my chops he realized I was correct and deleted the entire thread, or b.) he has already blocked me since Facebook can't somehow find him on my phone app, or c.) Facebook mobile app is indeed just that crappy.

I know in the grand scheme of things this is a futile thing to rant about, but this thread is a venting place right?

Can't speak to A) or B), but C) is certainly true.

haha. I read that as intoxicating MASK.

Which is potentially also true given the comment that came before it.
