Apple Talk / Re: Consumer Identity
« Last post by chaotic neutral observer on Today at 04:28:40 am »
I watched the video, and was somewhat disappointed.  Based on the intensity of the reactions, I figured it was going to be something a bit more accusatory, controversial, or "SJWish".  But really, all that it said was, "hey guys, don't be jerks."  It's hard for me to see anyone taking offense at that.  And yet, the like:dislike ratio is almost 1:2 on youtube. :roll:

In any case, this is not going to affect my purchase of said company's products, positively or negatively. The video had nothing to say about their razors, and I am strongly disinclined to judge a company or their products by the actions of their marketing weasels.

More year end hijinks

Me:  "Annnnnd the financials are done."

Jeff:  "NOPE."

Me: "What?"

Jeff:  "You got ahead of me, and you have to eat another $25K in labor and $4K in accrued vacation."

Me:  "How do these bastards even get vacation?"

Jeff:  "You don't think people should get vacation?"

Me:  "Sure, but some other time."

Billy:  "He and I worked 17 hour days for days on end and he offered to feed me dead rats when I complained."

Me:  "So I gotta eat $29K MORE?"

Jeff:  "Yep.  This is all normal."  *walks out of room*

Me:  *slumps down on chair*

Billy:  "What do you know?  Even the Doktor can get stuck in the clockwork like everyone else."

Me:  "I am defeated.  My budget is garbage and the coffee is shit and the drugs do nothing."

Billy:  "Cheer up.  We still have the weekend to redo everything we spent the last 17 days doing."

Me:  "You're turning into me, you know."

Billy:  *stares at me for 2 seconds too long* 

Me:  "Don't you fucking say it."

Billy:  "This is all normal, Dok."

They're now trying to be as noisy as possible without waking the neighbours.  Aw, that's cute.  Too bad I'm taking a day off tomorrow.

Sorry to hear about Knuckles, Dok.

I'm moving.  Again.  Hopefully on Saturday, if I can find a removalist willing to come within 24 hours.  Which I probably will do, this is London.  Anyway, it will get me away from the asshole brigade here, who kindly informed me I was disrespecting them by complaining about being woken up at 1am in the morning, when I go to work at 6am.

I'm sure you can imagine my response.

Another thing occurs to me, regarding my new position.  Not that I would ever abuse it, but a) I know the best type of legal firm in this city for every single sector and b) every lawyer in this, and every other city, wants to be my best friend because not only can I influence their ratings, I can tell them about their rivals.

So, just looking at pictures of an empty capitol city.

Things fell apart, nobody did anything.
