For my part, I’ve replaced optimism and believing the best of people by default with a grin and the absolute 100% certainty that if they cannot find a pig to fuck, they will buy some bacon and play oinking noises on YouTube.

Yesterday night I also had the realization that I am actually legitimately terrifying to people who have no idea who I am, especially to interact with me for the first time. I combine the worst apparent traits of all-knowing high wizard, moody anime antagonist, and foul mouthed cyberpunk hacker bitch.

The people I was talking to warmed up to it after they learned a bit about me, but there was some definite tension of the “Are you judging me? Are you going to kill me? Are you going to steal my credit card information and beat me to death with it?” varieties there.

This realization led me to the separate realization that I am not someone you want to meet if I don’t like you for some reason, and that I can use this power for good.

Particularly I have a certain manager in my sights. I wonder if I can get a chance to talk to him one on one for a few minutes? I should find out.

ETA: I just had another realization. Even though I call myself harmless, I am the exact opposite of harmless and can be allowed to continue existing only because I have total and complete control over my capacity for harm.

This can also be used for good.

Somehow my sinister aura inverted itself and now strangers sit near me and start conversations... it's odd, it's like one day things just got flipped on their ear.

Cool, I've recently noticed the opposite, maybe we switched?  Or I've finally grown a proper resting bitch face.

I dunno, it's just weird. It may be that I started avoiding white people. It shouldn't be about race but I've always had issues with them. I have one white friend these days but, she's a badass from Boston who takes no shit.

My latest goal: get the fuck off these HELL PHONES right away.

Means: email training.

Approach: be basically competent.

Current status: success.

Tomorrow I train all day. Then I beg them to put me on the (horribly undersized) email team, who would take a trained parrot with a severed hand right now. Then I work two more godawful days on the HELL PHONES. Then I get a day off, and one more day in HELL PHONES. Finally, I leave them behind, and go back to what I’m good at: typing a fucking lot.

I worked email for Nike for a bit. That was comically corporate. Shit like the first time you refer to the SportWatch, you need to call it the 'Nike+ SportWatch GPS. After that refer to it as the 'SportWatch'. It was still hell, but it was funny hell and didn't require me to have to think on my feet so much.

A definite upgrade.

Here it’s stuff like “don’t put the company in the news” and “be a human being not a marketing robot” and “follow basic rules for writing terse, readable, useful emails”.

There’s a libertarian on this bus ranting at the driver. He just decried fiat currency and expounded upon the gold standard while saying crypto is great.  :lulz: :lulz: :lulz:

ETA: update! He just said crypto will eliminate exchange rates and the concept of debt. This is fucking amazing.

ETA2: now its gone into bankers are brainwashing the little folk and is just skirting the edge of “the Jews are evil”. I want to throw rocks.

Final update:

By the time I got off it had gotten distinctly frothing. Globalist bankers rule the world through greed, we should build a party and take back what is ours, etc...

I watched a libertarian convince himself on fascism  in real fucking time. Someone just knock me the fuck out, I want to sleep.

If how you post here is any indication, you can do it!

How I post here is an accurate indication, except I swear less and I know my audience (rich racist old people, primarily).

I have not been called unprofessional by anyone to date, except one guy who was clearly enjoying the lack of professionalism, which I was offering only because I had accurately judged him to be the sort of person to enjoy a cynical and sarcastic sense of humor.

In other words, I’m really, really good at this job.

I ran out of money and needed to eat. My job and horrible commute doesn’t give me enough time to cook actual real human food that is affordable. So what did I do?

With my last 6 dollars, I bought cheezits. I reasoned that I lived on those for WEEKS while traveling across the country, so what could go wrong?

Verdict: not enough carbs. Nearly blacked out. Bad move.

Tonight I was STARVING and knew I needed food to live off of tomorrow more than I needed to sleep. I cooked up two broccoli cheddar Knorr Rice Sides (you know, the dollar bags of rice and cheap flavorings) and two cans of corned beef hash.

I did this because I had them mostly, but also because it took only an hour (largest amount of time I could spare) and everything else would have taken longer or been insufficient.

At the end of this (which was an ADVENTURE, I nearly was murdered by the corned beef hash because I decided to fry two full cans of it in a single pan) I filled up a small bowl with a delightful mix of textureless green specks and crunchy reddish brown chunks of meat in a sea of yellow, cheesy rice and golden fried potato.

I was full in five bites. I managed to fit the rest of it in me, but it was a struggle. Keep in mind I can eat a full pizza in one sitting and have room for seconds (QGP can confirm).

So, uh, that’s impressive.

Now I have almost a liter and a half of this stuff, which tastes like heaven and has enough grease to make a fatberg out of. I could live off of this for a week. I’m actually intimidated.

I enjoy dumping cans of tuna into velveeta shells and cheese. Explore this option at your own peril, it may consume your soul, and fill you with unholy preservatives.

EDIT: There's just something with the way canned tuna fish blends with velveeta. I don't know what it is, but it's seriously witchcraft.
