    I never said you had to you moron, but I would feel a hell of a lot better if you told me you felt bad about acting like a shithead!
    Yeah, sounds like a total non-recognition of his negative behavior. And even if he didn't agree about whether he was acting like a shithead, it SHOULD matter to him how you feel (both before and after the event.) Not cool, dude.

    • He said if he could explain that he did what he did with no bad intentions, then there's no reason to apologise. -_- Though we've both calmed down now so I'll try explaining it to him xD I just don't get it because the man's a genius most of the time, but little things pop up like this and I just facepalm.

      ANOTHERGRIPEYAY- High heeled boots hurt feet. Go to shop to buy shoes that wont hurt so much. Come out of shop wearing new HIGHER heeled shoes?
      I'm not sure if I'm even allowed to gripe about my poor feet because of my own stupidity xD

        So "not bothering to be considerate of you" isn't a bad intention in his book?

        By that logic, if he had a car accident and was at fault, he wouldn't feel a need to apologize for that either because he didn't MEAN for it to happen.

        Oh, high heels -- that'll be my GOTD. I'm not a high-heel wearer myself but it really baffles me why women put themselves through that. I've seen two coworkers so far today tottering around on high heels. One was merely unstable and looked terribly awkward. The other was actually limping. I know people are willing to be uncomfortable for the sake of fashion... but what on earth is sexy about staggering around like a newborn giraffe?

        • GotD: We had a cool front blow through. We're still supposed to clear 100* today. I'm wearing the minimum amount of clothing I can get away with professionally and I'm still sweating like a terrorist on a Southwest flight.

          • My stupid cat brought a tulip bulb in from the garden and has now lost it under the (very heavy and difficult to move) desk. Is there a good reason NOT to leave it there?

            • you won't has a pretty flower?
              beautiful
              yeah you are

              Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
              lol

                • GotD: Get a text from a woman I barely like. Tolerate as she married a friend. Friend's birthday party is Saturday. Womas asks what dish I plan on bringing to the party. I respond with "you never asked me to make anything". She says, yes it was in the text I sent. I find the originial text, send it back and said "no nothing mentioned about bringing a dish". So she then asks me to bring a dish. I don't even plan on eating a damn thing at said party Saturday night. WTF is wrong with former druggies. Can they get a fucking clue?

                  • Gripe of the day: Work institutes a wellness incentive plan, if you don't participate it is an extra weekly cost, DH sees ok with it, then I tell him the dates he needs to get tested here and he tells me what a hassle it is. No mention of what a hassle it is that I pay for our insurance and oh yeah every fucking thing else for the last 2 years while he has been out of work (he just got a job that will allow him to help). NOW THAT IS THE HASSLE BUDDY!

                    And he wants to know why that pissed me off and I got a tone?!?!?!

                    So when I get a chance I am going to calmly explain how I feel and that it is time for him to step up and let me rest and feel provided for.

                      Yeah, there are 2 women in our office building who wear ulta-high heels and look like they're just stumbling around and seem to be clueless about how stupid they look. In addition, one of them wears skirts way too short and tops that show way too much cleavage, she looks like a whore.

                      • GotD: Last summer the power company basically mowed and ripped up the ground in their right-of-way in our local park and in doing so, destroyed what would have been a beautiful crop of wild blackberries. The plants have come back, but have no blooms on them this year and the mowing/ripping also seemed to have invited other weeds to grow thicker so it's difficult to get to the plants.

                        • PLEASE, for the love of God, talk faster and be direct. I am one person.. I take calls and answer email for 2 radio stations and 2 tv stations. I can not be on the phone with one person for 5 minutes while you tell me who and why you ordered a celtic thunder dvd for last December. I am glad you are excited they are coming back. I really really am, but odds are when you call me I have a list of twenty other things to do.

                          • I only have 8-9 hours in my workday. If you want something by a deadline, tell me. Otherwise, I'll get the hardest stuff off my plate first. This whole deadline-of-yesterday-would-be-nice ain't gonna cut it longterm.

                              Don't worry - blackberries (and related plants, like raspberries) only fruit on second-year vines/canes. Next year you will have a good crop. Blackberries are extremely hard to kill and probably within 3-4 years they'll have taught those other weeds who's boss.

                                Lol, i hate raptor walk. I don't know how many models i've had to teach how to just STAND right in heels, let alone walk properly. If you're having trouble walking in heels, it's usually one of the following:
                                1. They're just too fucking high and your center of gravity is thrown out too much
                                2. You're not letting your hips swing as you walk
                                3. Weak ankles. Wibble wobble!
