Apple Talk / Help me get banned! Win prizes!
« Last post by Fin on January 13, 2018, 02:20:04 am »
Yes, YOU can help me get banned! Apparently accounts aren't deactivated and you can't ask to be banned.  So, I need YOUR help. 1) Post  ideas here on how I can get banned as quickly as possible. Nothing illegal and nothing overly insulting please.  2) Report as many of my posts to mods as possible..... I have some ideas. The post I made that pissed folks off was made when I was drunk ( who knew Discos were so sensitive?) so I figure more drunken posts is a good idea,  except it's gonna be real fucking boring for me to do this sober and even more so drunk....  well, I've got other ideas.  PLEASE HELP ME GET BANNED.  Prizes will be awarded to the best, most effective ideas, from my collection of odd found items and some of the  (smaller) side-show oddities I've collected over the years.  I AM SERIOUS. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.  You can win really cool stuff! And have the satisfaction of doing a good deed by helping a fellow somewhat sentient being out. Thanks in advance for your efforts! I can't do this without you!

I create a few dozen fake Illegal Refugee I.D. numbers, collect $3,874/mo from the Federal Assistance program for each one of them and become the next George Soros.

Ah, OK.  Obviously "squealing to the mods" is some new addition to the debate rules.

I will admit that my concern is that she is going to deny everything, and turn it into a "he said, she said" kind of a thing.  In that situation, I would walk, even without a job to go into, the moment the references from HR allowed me to put down a deposit on renting elsewhere. 

I've already stomached more shit than I should have from management, but management is mostly a distant concern and I can ignore them due to the unsociable hours I work.  There's no-one around to tell me at 3am I should be doing pointless patrols or putting up posters that no-one will ever look at.  I would be handing over to this person on a daily basis, however.  Sooner or later I'd end up clocking her one or simply refusing to do the handover at all. 

There would also be the issue that, yes on paper it's one person's word against another.  But I'm a senior residence supervisor, with 3 years in the company, no record of making spurious allegations, no record of any form of vendetta with this staff member beyond the concerns sent about her lack of work ethic.  In that case, management refusing to take my side would be akin to saying they think I'm making shit up for some reason.  And if they really think I'm that delusional or vindictive...well, why am I being entrusted with 200+ students again?

I've sort of reached a state of zen-like detatchment about the issue, on one level.  Because of the way in which it happened, I wasn't able to vent about it for hours (I quietly fumed on a train, before concluding that no matter what, there was nothing I could do at this point and so I should concentrate on other things).  Since getting back, I've not been able to talk about it either, because no other members of staff know about this incident.  You would think that would make me feel like I'm bottling it up, but it's almost the reverse.  I already decided, on the day, what my response would be if management didn't do the right thing. 

So really I've just been waiting, to see what will happen.

It's a real shame that the result can't be filmed.

A space alien is stranded on Earth after accidentally being left behind by a group that landed on the planet. Prolonged exposure to our atmosphere is toxic to it but it manages to survive by draining the life force out of unwary youths native to the area where it was left. The government eventually mounts an operation to try to corral the creature after discovering that it can be harmed by certain citizen's band radio frequencies, but it's own people come to pick it back up before it can be captured. Sort of a b-movie horror version of E.T.
