Random thing you loathe right now.

If they even let you repaint without declining your deposit, they probably won't foot the bill for letting you repaint.

Not sure why they used semi-gloss though, usually you use some form of matte for interiors and semi-gloss as accents, right?

Walmart had a sale on semi-gloss paint?

Something like semi-gloss is good for kitchens as it is easier to clean so I'm assuming that was their reasoning.

(By the way, you really wouldn't need to sand it down. Remove anything that's peeling, wash down with TSP then a coat or two of Kilz primer, then paint.)

That feeling of impending doom you get when you've scheduled a meeting with a realtor and then, while googling tax rates to get a better idea of what costs would look like ahead of the meeting discover that the city you're living in is currently embroiled in a lawsuit. Big Whoop! Right? Well, it's for wrongful imprisonment, there's a racial element, a dirty cop element, and they are asking for over a 100 million dollars in damages. The insurers of the city have already found loopholes and will not be liable (the city is appealing one of those decisions). Any guesses where a city could raise money? -- Concerned future home-owner.

Being given a time frame for meeting up, and then watching the clock blow past it, especially when I'm super hungry.

The bureaucratic nonsense we have to go through to hire someone around here. We know who we want to hire, he already works for us as an intern, but we still have to interview at least 3 people and run it through a committee before we can even offer him the job.

Could be worse. The company I work for is full of idiots in our IT department because there is to much red tape they can't hire anyone in less than 8 weeks after an interview. By the time they get around to making an offer the people we really liked have been snapped up by some other company. It gets old when you have like 1 guy/girl on each team that knows wtf they are doing, so they get all the work.

I'll claim that I'm an exception to this rule because I went through the process while I still had another job, so I had time to wait. The pay is amazing but the lack of talent is mind boggling. Yay for old school management and federal government-esque bureaucracy!

Here, here! Much in the same boat with the company I work with now.

I hate working on the first couple days of the month. We were so rushed yesterday I wasn't able to clock out until 40 minutes after I was originally scheduled to be off. >.<

Because of paydays?

Yeah, most people get paid/get Welfare checks on the first of the month. And guess where they come to eat when they're out doing their grocery shopping? Yeah.

I just ate at Moe's Southwest Grill for the first time. The place was super busy.

I am still baffled by the food people put up with around here. Terrrrrrible!

I think I had a migraine the other day. I get up before work, have some coffee, and hop in the shower. 2 minutes later my head is pounding in a way I've never felt before, I'm dizzy, nauseous, and feel like I'm about to keel over. I call out from work (which always makes me feel like an ***hole), and a few hours and some excedrin migraine later, it's all but gone. Had I known the meds would have helped that much, I probably could have muscled through my shift. Instead I stayed home, took care of my newborn, and played Skyrim. So...I guess it wasn't all bad.

Terrible + super busy always says to me "this is a crappy place that's a destination for high school kids and others who don't know any better, like Cheesecake Factory". (Does Cheesecake Factory still exist?)

I hate Blackboard. I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate Blackboard.

Exists, and expanding, like the waistlines of its customers. They've got a lock on the 'high end' mall food market.

Seconded. It's a horrible platform.

Feeling vaguely like I might be coming down with something, and at the same time, being unable to fall asleep.

Blackboard hates you as well!

There's an Australian deep cut for you! Now I think on it, some old Australian TV was weird...

Well, that will haunt my dreams.

Cheesecake Factory will exist as long as there are offices who need to take their employees out to a place nicer than fast food but carefully calculated to not offend anyone's sensibilities, even the most picky and whitebread.

I kind of think Moe's isn't that terrible, it's about even with Chipotle, which is to say it pales next to a good burrito place but I don't mind eating there on occasion.

I only go to Moe's when I don't want to drive back 10 miles towards the office to get Chipotle and I'm already home :/

And what is truly terrifying is that Blind_Evil was talking about my local Moe's I'll be the first to admit its had some low points, but usually its still decent enough.

Can I just get it out that all chain restaurants more or less suck when compared to a good family run business? I make it my mission in life to show people the error of their ways, by taking them to a fine small business. Before we met, my wife loved Olive Garden. Then I took her to Comos at 9 Mile and Woodward. Olive Garden is never the subject of conversation anymore.

Not everyone is lucky enough to live in an area with a lot of good, independently owned, restaurants. But it is nice to. That reminds me, I want to go to the Fly Trap next weekend.

Fly Trap is off the chain.

Breakfast at 9 with me and the wife, and her friend Kelly my friend? Do you have other Sunday Plans?

Yeah, I'll be eating hot chicken in Nashville, Tennessee.

Bring me back a rack of ribs please?

Burritos in Chicago suck, so Chipotle is actually better out here. I miss California :Cry:

I cannot comment on the burritos, but I have found some wonderful taquerias on the north side.

So all the pictures that I transferred from my phone to the new microSD card I just got have randomly disappeared... lovely. Nowhere to be found on either the phone or the card. Nothing SUPER important lost, but I had taken some pics I'd have liked to keep... Currently using Reduva to try and find them if they maybe accidentally got deleted somehow, but I'm not holding out much hope.
