I hope our society can improve services in rural areas faster as time progresses (I'm assuming you're were/are in one).
if not rural, it might just be old people in town. Curse 'em. The town my parents live in isn't super small (maybe ~20,000 people), but it's filled with cranky older boomers who think it ruins the sanctity and beauty of the town to have wireless towers built. So, everyone there suffers with terrible-to-nonexistent service instead.

I've been hooking up my new A/V cables for recording and streaming speedrun videos, and I spent several hours testing my setup. The audio is working, but not the video. I still can't get the video to work!

Good lord where do I even begin...

-The new bus seats are lying about having padding, they're just a layer of fabric over super rigid plastic.
-I have to use only two flash drives to format an entire computer lab at work. **** me.
-That pipe dream went and shoved itself up its own arsehole. Yip-de-****ing doo dah.
-The bus home was 25 minutes late. Actually no, the bus was there, but the driver ****ing vanished. So I was literally sat on the curb in 93f/34c heat for over half an hour.

Perfect god damn day.

I did not succeed in making myself feel any better at all today. Especially after my run down memory lane earlier which really caused me to reflect on a lot of past relationships that went wrong. Not so sure I have reflected so hard on how I have affected people before as I did today. Typically I never even think about it, I have been going through life almost totally devoid of any thought of emotional repercussion of my actions on others years ago. At least nothing more than the most superficial of passing concerns. I was a ****ing idiot in highschool and the immediate years after.

It is not an easy feeling knowing that you might have really hurt people. Don't even know what I could ever do about that.

Ok, so recently I got a job at a Grocery Store. I love it, its fun and my co-workers are nice. But what really pisses me off is the some of the customers we have coming through the store. (Not all Customers)

The Grocery Store it self is a "Sorta" high Quality in terms of services and the products we provide are a little more expensive. (Pain in my wallet whenever I have to buy lunch). So a lot of the people that stop at our store are generally have a larger wallet than most people. Now, most of these people are very polite and nice. But they're are a few bad apples in the bunch.

List o Hate,

1. My store provides pick up meaning that a person could leave they're grocery's at the front entrance of the store and pick them up with Assistance from an employee Stationed outside (Me) the store. NOW, what really pisses me off is when a person parks they're car in front of the store and gets out leaving they're hazards on and go in the store to shop for an hour. Not only is this a nuisance to me its a nuisance to other customers trying to enjoy in our complementary pickup service. ON TOP of that, It's a safety hazard. If we where to have a fire, car would block the firetruck from parking. Also what makes them more important than the customers that park in the parking lot.

2. When I'm bagging and a person ask for paper bags, not a problem. Then when I ask them if they would like to keep they're HOT rotisserie chicken in a plastic bag to keep it warm. They say "Nah...Lets put that in paper bag it will keep it warmer." My face is all like p_p. (PLASTIC BAGS insulate WAY Better Than PAPER Bags.)

3. You peoples who have children, DON'T let them in the pet supply's aisle alone! Or they may throw a 45 pound bag of bird seed all over the floor. (Has Happen twice in the last month.)

4. Please tell the nearest employee if you find a huge mess in the Dairy aisle. (I need to make this a shirt!)

5. Don't ask the employee outside if they can move a cars out of the handicap parking spots so you can park there. (This needs to be a sign outside the store)

6. If an employee is helping another customer please wait your turn. If I say "Ill get to you in a min, Mam." The person who asked doesn't have to scream.

7. Customers who get mad at the cashier over a coupon for a dollar.

8. Customers who buy 45 items and go to the self checkout.

9. Customers who let kids into the wine aisle(s), it's equivalent to letting a bull in a china shop.


ALL of this happens and sometimes makes my work more challenging than it already is!

not a single person at my work will cover a shift for me on Saturday so I can spend time with my best friend, who is dying, and this Saturday is the only day I'll be able to spend a lot of time with her before she goes away to university, which is incidentally extremely far from where I'm going to university. not one person will get back to me to take my last shift like seriously it's more money for them i don't know why no one will take it I just want to see her before we go our seperate ways

I don't even know when or if I'll be able to see her again I hate this
sorry
I just moved into my dorm and I don't have any friends so venting on here has to do for now

Sorry to hear that Hollie - lou, perhaps your colleagues are rather desensitised to other people's situations, or too deep in the mutual struggle.
At least you can still talk to her plenty through the power of the Internet, not the same as being side by side I know.

Having a post I made on ZD about my mother's rape, subsequent PTSD, my sisters terminal illness that has hurt me and made me cry countless times, my brother's tourettes and severe hyperactivity that caused him to spend several months in a mental institution, and my own severe clinical depression... be quoted mockingly on disqus by someone pretending to be me.

Seriously? Are these things funny to you? Is my mother's rape, my sisters illness, my brothers mental issues and my depression actually ****ing funny? God that's so disgusting. Whoever did this should be ashamed themselves. Especially since I know that one of the people who did this (considering the post mocking me and mezlo had their name all over it) is always taking the moral highground.

Yeah, I'm mad. Having serious issues be mocked publicly. Jesus Christ.

EDIT: oh, just to add, the post also included mentions of my brother being molested for several months. Another very funny issue. Haha.

What the hell???? So someone is making fun of what happened in your life?? People are so sick!

My headaches annoy me. Assembly line work is fine but boy it gives you headaches watching the pots and cans passing by at a certain speed all the time.

Public transport just really didn't like me today. My bus never turned up this morning, so I had to eventually walk to college. Only problem is, I hardly know my way around the city and college is miles away. Of course I ended up getting lost. >_< I eventually got there really late over an hour later, but had missed my first class which is really annoying. Then later on, I found out I had another class that was cut short, meaning that it was too early to then catch a bus back. I had to walk again...ugh. :(

Actually a lot of things. The fact that the truck with the green beans came around 1 am and we had to wait for a long time till we could continue.
People who talk so loud in my car they think I'm deaf.
I wonder if people actually have a life or if they spend their whole time being mad at others and keep on finding ways to piss them off. I see it happen at work, on the internet, in the family. Be constructive and not destructive for once.
