  • someone has a chip on his shoulder. i agree with paleo (surprised?) if someone else wants to put that crap in their body, that's fine with me. just do it somewhere else so my kids and i don't have to walk through it. shit like that can trigger an asthma attack, and the smell clings to your clothes. gross.

      Smokers...yeah, as long as it is not inside, I don't generally care. Though I do think people with little monsters for children should not be allowed to take them into public places - restaurants, movie theaters, etc. Quiet, well behaved children are fine, but those little shitbags who want to do nothing but scream, throw food, and kick the back of your chair...yeah, they should be illegal and their parents sterilized.

      (I'm kidding to an extent. Illegal is far too strong a word, but they do irritate the piss out of me.)

        It nearly did when I was much younger: I was an asthmatic with acute bronchitis, a mild allergy to cigarette smoke, and damn near walking pneumonia the summer I was 10 or so. I walked through a crowd and passed by the happy assholes who were smoking. I started hacking up a lung, blacked out, hit the deck, and apparently kept coughing, including coughing up blood. Gave myself a nice concussion when hit the deck.
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Agreed. No one has the right to force me to smoke, when I have intentionally chosen not to smoke!
          Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

          • GOTD: Fucking right handed world. I need a lefty engineering scale. I've been using my heirloom righty scale, but this ain't cutting it. I need a lefty scale and they don't exist. The office is just now getting around to buying smear proof pens, including the archival ones that I'm required to write in the field note books with. The first page of every field project is one giant smear because of the pens they do have. I place my trashcan and recycling box on the left side of my desk every morning and every evening the damn cleaning crew moves it to the right side of my desk.

              Agreed. I even cover my mouth and nose with my shirt sleeve as i walk past smokers. Just because y'all wanna bbq YOUR lungs, doesn't mean I have to be coughing all day.

              Forgot to mention, had an interesting morning.

              First, we were woken up by people yelling outside. Wrote down time and what they said, too sleepy to do anything else. Always write down shit like that in case cops come ask later.

              So just after husband leaves for work, like 8ish...hear fighting upstairs. Now this couple fights frequently, but i usually can't hear what they're saying. But they were in the bedroom and all these apts are laid out the same. I could hear the guy clearly through the ceiling as he was speaking pretty loud. Most people in our building are gone by 8 so it was dead quiet too.

              Anyway. This is some of the choice phrases i heard him yelling at her:

              7:50am-8am
              'no food or water til you help with the house'
              'don't f**king lie to me again'
              'grounded in your room til you help with the house'
              'no food or water til you help with the house'

              And all i hear apart from that is her sobbing. So i'm like, you f**kin asshole, i'm calling the cops. Quickly typed up all that he said and gave a copy to the cops. Two female cops whose faces just went *guh* at this BS right...
              So they're like ok, we'll check it out and make sure she's ok etc.
              They go upstairs. Knock for a good 7mins or so. One comes back down asking me if i'd seen them leave. I said no, but there's a back entrance. But i can still hear them up there.
              They knock some more. No answer. They end up calling their male supervisor to come over.
              Turns out the guy refused to talk to FEMALE cops or even answer the door.
              >_>
              From what i heard, he got a warning...so now it's on record. But if i hear him abusing her again i'm on that shit like white on rice.
              I work from home and taking this all down, dates and times...

              • The dishwasher is right under the worktop, just to the right of the sink. It won't take much effort to open it and put your dirty crap in it.
                That is so my gripe right now. I went to bed with a clean kitchen (and empty dishwasher!) and somehow my nocturnal brother DESTROYED it and left the sink full of dishes.

                • narcissistic and insecure people projecting their bullshit.

                  I "make you uncomfortable"? Gee how did I pull that one off? Let me go get you a pillow, is your down comforter fluffy enough?

                  REALLY? REALLY? Because lord satan knows I was put on this earth to be a "comfort" to self absorbed shitheels. Fuckin' ay.

                  You know what I do when I'm uncomfortable? I fucking get on with my day, because just about everything on this god fucked planet makes me uncomfortable...

                  Get the fuck over yourselves.

                    How were they able to ascertain that he wouldn't talk to FEMALE cops if he wouldn't even answer the door in the first place?

                    • The male supervisor came, and then he opened the door.

                        I guess that is my gripe for the day.

                            Umm...so did she help with the house? I'm really not trying to be funny. I mean, if some raving, abusive fuck is saying help with the house, help with the damned house. Then when he falls asleep stab his ass, or leave or whatever. I know it can be difficult for some people to leave abusive relationships but 'help with the house' does not seem like a difficult request to comply with to gain some room away from the crazy jackass.

                            (And I am in no way defending his behavior nor saying she should stay, only that she should do something pretty simple to get him off her back for the time being)

                            • GOTD: People that think they are being "green" by driving crappy little Priuses! If you were really trying to do something about going "green", get a job closer and ride a bike. I must have passed 5-6 of these things on the way home (10 miles). They were more than likely all on their way home commuting from the Philly area back to Pottstown area (about 30 miles or more one way).

                              • stupid ass commericals where the people just scream the whole freakin time at the top of their lungs....i can't change the channel fast enough.
                                I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                                You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.
