Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 04, 2004, 09:27:39 AM
I have a blood blister in my left heel. Yech.

I've been feeling crappy, too. I've got problems with not fitting in, and feeling like I can't do anything right, and being envious of other people, and not being happy with myself. :P

I used to have sucky jobs, so I could just focus on how crappy the job was, and ignore the rest. Now that I have a job that's OK, it makes me realize how much I suck. :P

Is there anything in specific making you unhappy that you want to talk about Say, and Racx, or are you just feeling miserable in general?

Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Say on April 04, 2004, 12:09:30 PM
let me put it this way

you focus your life in one track, and when you realize its just never enough for you and no matter how hard you try you just wont have it all, its depressing to work so hard and always have... nothing? you know?

I mean, dont get me wrong, I feel very please I've appeared in magazines, press, I was even on tv lol (when I won the contest), I have awards and degrees and all that bullshit, Im in honor list and even the dean at campus loves me, its all... good, in fact its great, but its not enough, its like... I have it all and to my own, kq9 is a beautiful place where I happen to share my things with the nice people around, but even so... lol I think you guys are the only ones I do get to talk with, Im always busy, Im always working, Im always like.. too busy to live at least a little or something, I dont know its very hard to say or explain, I just feel extremely unhappy even so I have things to be thankful and to feel great for, all I have is work and sadly every single achievements I have noone to share them with sometimes, it feels lonely to be me.

It's just sad, my life turned out to be just freaking hell in a miserably week, while work is all... doing just wow, great, its all coming out together, thesis its going on great, my life just plain sucks, problems at home, problems with myself, problems with the few ones I freaking care about, its like, I need to tear myself in two, but I rather hide at work rather than to give a s*** about the rest, at least is easier, but then again when work fails or when work is done for the day (I cant work 24/7 no matter how hard I try) there is always that moment of my day that I get to think how much I want what I cant have, and how much I need what I never find, its just plain sad, and I hate myself for not being as perfect as everyone think I am or everything, not that it matters, but the fact is Im my worst judge and I just wish I had the answers to at least give myself peace of mind.

wow, a serious long depressing post... looks like my journal... :(

Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 04, 2004, 02:39:32 PM
It seems to me like you need to simplify a little bit, Say.

There's not much you can do while you're finishing your studies, but after that... take some time to figure out what you want to do, and what makes you happy. Then focus as best you can on that and let the rest go hang.

You can't "have it all"... it's just physically impossible. So concentrate on just having the things that are important to you. Maybe you consider friends important. Maybe it's creative expression. Maybe it's being respected. Maybe it's just having free time to sit and veg. Whatever it is, go after those things, and don't sweat the other stuff.

Yeah, you have to compromise in some spots... a person needs to eat and stay sheltered, after all, and sometimes you have to do a few things you don't like to manage that. But for the most part... it just sounds to me like you're trying to do too much, and most of it isn't really stuff that matters to you. All the awards and such don't mean much if it's not things that really make you happy.

Blow off other people's comments a little bit for the time being, too. Everybody's always got some idea of what you should be, and what you should do, and sometimes that can be useful to listen to and consider. But in the end, you're the one living your life, not them.

Peace & Luv, Liz
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Say on April 04, 2004, 03:42:52 PM
I totally understand and I guess you're right, the problem is not that I try to do too much, the problem is one is the scapegoat of another? I mean, I do love my job dont get me wrong but there is no possible way I could have been where I am with just 21 years old anyways if I didnt do what I did, yet its like.. seriously I have nothing of my own my own you know? these goes go away, achievements always look good in a CV, no denial in that but that's all that is, and no I cant slow down, in fact, this is one of the phases of my life (again) when I just cant stop, for example, when I finished highschool I entered right away to the university, I almost did a 5 year career in 4 with excellent grades I couldnt actually make it because of administrative problems at campus that the whole university shut down for like 3 months :s, anyhow, now I havent even ended university and I do have things to look foward but also I look at what it is right now, and I have uncompleted pieces of a life, its like... what is it to have a good chocolate if you cant share it?! you know? well I dont know, probably it's just me, my family plays a different role on this because I cant continue living their life I need my own and instead of being a load I rather be a help, I may have a lot of my head but at the same time I have noone there for me either, it feels really ackward, its just a really bad moment I guess. I'll shut up now and go back to my lame ass jokes, I dont even like me like this lol :(


hey its weekend, I should announce the bi.tch of the week...


Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: copycat on April 04, 2004, 03:47:24 PM
Apart from the people in this forum, and my work-colleagues, I don't have any real friends either. :(

Post by: Say on April 04, 2004, 03:49:40 PM
I totally relate to that :( (and co-workers here at kq9 I personally even dislike some of my clients lol :()
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 04, 2004, 04:26:59 PM
Well, if you feel like you can't slow down right now, Say, that's fine. Just remember... assuming the average female lifespan, you've got at least 60 years left to go... better to look and see if you can let some things take a little bit longer to do, then to try to do it all at once and get burned out.

Plus... you *do* have a lot of life to live... if it seems like some things are missing right now, or you feel things are crappy right now, that's OK. For the former, there's plenty of time to figure out what you need and go get it. For the latter, there's a saying that has helped me keep my sanity many a time... "This too shall pass." And then there's the Serenity Prayer (http://www.sca-recovery.org/Serenity.html)... something that even an agnostic can recognize the value of. (An online friend mailed me a coin with the text embedded on it, and I carry it around with me, since I need to remind myself of it a lot. :P )

As for friends... the only offline friend I have is Harrison... if it wasn't for him I really would have lost my sanity a long time ago. :P I don't fit in very well with my co-workers (they're nice people, they're just not the kind of people I can relate to), and I seldom go anywhere else. I enjoy talking to my online friends very much <3, although it's not entirely the same.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Well, that's something I was lucky with, and that's my (male) co-workers, there's one slightly older than me, and another a bit younger, but we're all ICT and game-minded, amongst other things, so at regular times you can hear a laugh resounding on our cosy office container. There's also a woman I can relate to, she's also somewhat younger than me IIRC, but she's at another 'desk-island' a bit farther away (not our fault, we had one space left at out four-space island, but she wanted to sit at the other one.)

Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Say on April 04, 2004, 04:46:19 PM
my whole life switched off since end of last year... but... in 360º and ever since I havent had a single moment of peace that I can even sit down and watch tv for like at least 5 mins in calm, the only thing I have is to listen to music while I work, and go hug my puppies every now and then to take off the stress, but really... I had to become a new better version of me, It was simply like a downward spiral, I think I want the rollercaster to end, I want to settle, to me happyness is overrated but to at least to know that I will have something that will always be there? for good or bad you know? of my own... oh well, thanks for that prayer its absolutly beautiful, I will keep it with me too <3

Heh. My co-workers, it's like... they all seem fairly conservative, they spend their free time at sports bars, and flea markets, and shooting ranges, and fishing and hunting, and car races, and stuff like that. There's nothing wrong with any of that at all, it's just none of the sort of stuff that interests me, or that I feel I can relate to or talk about.

I've never really fit in anywhere, so I'm pretty used to being in the background and keeping to myself, for the most part. The problem is that it's a small company (there's only about 15 employees), so it's hard to keep to myself without coming off as aloof or rude, especially since most of my co-workers are fairly gregarious. (Also something I can't really relate to.)

oh well, thanks for that prayer its absolutly beautiful, I will keep it with me too <3

I'm glad you like it. :) Unfortunately the coin I was sent is pretty old, so I don't know where to find another... but maybe I can cross-stitch it for you or something. (Of course, by time I get to actually do it, we'll all be looking back on this from our rockers and laughing... (sigh) ;P )

Argh. I decided to give some depliatory cream a try yesterday... what a bad move. Bad enough my skin is always disgusting-looking to begin with... now my legs and underarms are all owie and even more icky. :P Now I know why I keep slipping and accidentally calling the stuff "skin remover".

lol, you used hot wax? cuz you can use nowday many many cold creams which wont harm your skin that way, besides you need a pre waxing moisture and afterwards body cream afterwards to make it look good (or heal better in some cases :P)

if you didnt use a cream afterwards use it, lol ouch, to think about it hurts me lol :P I FEEL YOUR PAIN SIS :P
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 05, 2004, 12:20:57 PM
Eep, no, miscommunication, I didn't use wax. I'm not that nuts. :P

No, I used that cream stuff, where you put it on, let it sit for a while, then wipe it off and it takes the hair with it. Nair brand, to be exact. It took the hair off, all right, except that now my hair follicles have all gone from being their usual ugly purply selves to being uber-ugly red and bumpy and owie. Yech. I should taken the time to find the Sally Hanson brand my friend mentioned was really good, but I was lazy.

Anyhoo. I would like to b**** about New England weather. It cannot make up its freakin' mind. One day it's warn enough to wear a windbreaker, so you do. Next day it's freezing and windy and you're cold all day. So the next day after that you go back to your winter jacket, except it's warm again. So you wear the windbreaker again the day after that, but it's cold again! AAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!

Now that I've gotten that out of my system...

/me parties for Yonkey.

Peace & Luv, Liz

Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: J-ROC on April 07, 2004, 02:50:43 PM
No, I didn't find out by e-mail.   Say did, unfortunately.  I didn't have an appropriate means of telling anyone, nor did I really feel like talking to anyone yesterday.  Kind of a kick in the crotch, it is.

Everyone found out electronically except for me and people I work with.

I'm not overly worried...but it's basically the first time in my life I don't have any clue what's going to happen to me.  I mean first, I was in school...then university right after that, and then a job right out of university...now...nothing.  

I think a drive accross Canada might be in order to get back to Halifax (and mooch of the parents, you know. :D).  A stop in Ottawa is in order, and yes Neil, you can give me a hug and kiss then. :D

Oops, I think I misread something in Say's post there.  That still sucks though, but it will get better.

I've just remembered something to b.iatch about!!

Boyfriends. Not mine obviously, I dont butter my bread that way, but female friends boyfriends. Why the f*** do they always have to go super insecure whenever their GF has a close friend who is male (ME!). FFS I just dont get it, 2 of my friends I've known for about 5 years both end up practically ignoring me cus their dickhead boyfriends seem to think anything male is a threat to them! Meh, very meh indeed... :(
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Yonkey on April 07, 2004, 07:59:51 PM
Not sure if this helps any, but personally as soon as I notice a girl has a boyfriend, I lose all interest in em.  A lot of the times I'm like:  :X Eww WTF does a secsay thing like her see in that fugly dude?!  (heh, well I'd use a bit more colourful language, but you get the picture ;)) So yeah, it's a major turn-off.  ;P

I have a few female friends with boyfriends, but usually they don't bring them along if we're all gonna hang out somewhere.  It does kind of kill the mood, unless we know the guy & he's cool to be around with.  8)
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 07, 2004, 09:05:46 PM
If it makes you feel better, Alex... I've had my male friends' girlfriends get jealous over me before... despite the fact that I never seriously flirt with a "taken" guy. Bad for one's karma and all that.

And if it makes you feel better, Yonkey, I have wondered exactly what a few of my male friends saw in their girlfriends...

Peace & Luv, Liz
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Say on April 07, 2004, 10:30:48 PM
I am the worst ever to even consider jump into this conversation because

1.- I've been the jealous gf of his friends lol

2.- I've been also that friend that the gf wants to kill

3.- I personally done all the no's here and the horrible coments lol :P...  well, Im in no place to comment (even though I'd like to) cuz I've heard that before myself "WTF YOU DOING WITH THAT *addhorriblecursinghere* MORON", as well as I do tend to gather it all up even if they dont like from each to each side... lol, you can ask Neil and Alex about it, lol my poor boys :P

Anyhow, I had better just... go away on this topic :P cuz I think Im the most horrible friend, horrible gf, horrible everything, I believe I always do things wrong no matter how right my intentions are and well... I shut up now lol ;P
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 08, 2004, 06:08:15 AM
Heh. Truth be told, I'd probably have a hard time not being jealous myself... the only guy who'd pick me is someone who can't get anyone else, so I'd always be paranoid that eventually some other girl would be interested in him. :-X

And my gal pals did wonder what I saw in my ex-boyfriend... although it was less that he was a jerk or anything, and more that he was just a bit of a dork.

hmmmm.... my first girlfriend left me with for her 'just a friend' ; / ...still I'm not jealous (well, till a certain level ; )

...if someone likes me a lot, i trust her, and it is only a token of her affection if she prefer me as her boyfriend above her other (male)friends. If she decides to leave me for another friend (like my first gf did) it is only better for me (even if it still hurts)

I never get intrested in woman who already has a boyfriend (that i know of ; ) and the moments i did have a gf i lost intrest in other females at all...

Post by: J-ROC on April 08, 2004, 09:22:02 AM
Jeysie:

I'm the same way.  I always figured if a girl liked me, she would just end up liking someone else instead.
I've spent most of my life being a "special guy"...but just not special enough for anyone to date.  So it's hard for me to believe that anyone would feel that way about me.  So if said girl has some other boy in their life, I get all retarded jealous like.  And if anything, it pushes them away instead of bringing them closer.
But I'm a fool and I'm bound to die alone.
That's alright though...I can't afford to maintain a girlfriend, anywho. :D
 
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 08, 2004, 09:34:10 AM
That sounds so much like me, J-R. I've always been the "best friend"... the guy would tell me everything, and cry on my shoulder, and all that... and then just be friends with me and lust after some other girl. :P The only time they'd get lovey-dovey is if the other girl didn't want them, or they had a girlfriend but they were really having problems... and it's like, "Hey, you didn't want me before you got/went after that other girl, don't come to me now and try to take advantage of the fact that I'm affectionate and sympathetic and everything." :P

It's kind of frustrating... I'm boy-crazy (ha, like you all couldn't tell by this point), but it's a pretty one-sided affair, so to speak... plus I have to admit I don't have anything offer a guy better than another girl could. :P

I'm one of those people who always become the friend rather than the  <3friend <3 Most the time I don't really care as theres only ever been two girls I could imagine going out with and both of them were taken :'( boohoo. Heh anyway about this boyfriends thing I wouldn't really mind if they were just casual friends who I'd known for a year or so but one of them I've known my whole life (no kidding) and the other for nearly 7 years and its like all that seems to dissapear when their boyfriends are on the scene (who are both stupid btw and do nothing for them blah blah :D)

I'm sure that I'll meet my soulmate one day and we'll grow old together and buy a house in cornwall when we retire hahaha.

Jeysie:

:(  Don't say that about yourself...because you couldn't be more wrong.  You're a unique person, as if everyone else.  No one else has your personality, no one else has your smile, no one else has your laugh, no one else has your eyes (unless you sold them on the black market, silly girl!).  

Point is, that EVEN IF someone did have some similar traits, they don't have your complete package.  No one will have all the exact same combination of traits.  Just cuz you've met some retards along the way that are too blind to see that, it does NOT mean that there's anything wrong with you.

I know there's a perfect woman out there for me...they just don't live within a 6000 km radius. :P

I know there could be a perfect man out there for me, I just may never met him :D hahahaha... :(

sad but true :(


note: I dont believe in perfect girl or perfect boy btw :P
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on April 08, 2004, 04:24:07 PM
J-R: (thinks to her geography a bit) So you're claiming your perfect woman is on another planet? ;) Yeah, that sounds about right for me and men at this point.

And... I know I'm unique... I just have a hard time believing that I could be the right woman for some guy over someone else, seeing as how I'm plain-looking, don't have much of a social life, think stuff like website coding and reading tech manuals is fun, and my sole talents are being efficient and organized. Oh, and I'm intelligent, strong-willed (read:stubborn), bluntly honest, and independent, too. Any guy who likes me the best is either really boring or a masochist, IMHO. (Or both.)

I do believe in the concept of soulmates... but I feel I already met mine, and he's not interested in me romantically, so I'm busy looking for second-best. :P

so we agree love sucks? :)

lol, truth is I agree with Storm, I do not believe in a perfect anyone neither soulmates, I believe in the truth of commited and honest comunication, faithful standarts, and bonding, if you are not perfect you cant expect anyone else to be, and even if that someone may not be the perfect a couple can build a relationship that would last, now that would be a good match but even so, the lasting of it lays on responsability, care, respect, comunication and a lot of will :P lol cuz s*** always happens, the problem is to move on.

so yeah, I dont think I'll ever marry or even have kids or anything, OMGIRGONNADIEALONEEE :( *cries* lol

I'm so upset that you've already doomed our relationship, racx!!   :'(


And I honestly don't believe in a "perfect" match, either....or a soulmate.  I guess moreso what I was trying to say while still being lazy and soemone inexplicative is that there is someone who will be happy with me and I will be happy with.  Just not anywhere near me.  

And I of course, was referring to on the planet...as if the surface was stretched out be flat.

Post by: Say on April 08, 2004, 05:58:23 PM
jason, dont say that!! lol you silly thing, you know, let me explain this a bit to you :P

you are a lovely boy who still has a lot to be thankful for before turning an adult who happens to pay bills and support yourself or you will die :P so, when this happens that you start to take serious actions and responsability of them, you start to move on and grow up as a person, when you do you get silly and start thinking about future goals :P, everyone sort of tries to settle at some level, so relationships are a social ebilness that you try to achieve just for the sake to have a significant other... sadly it ever turns out to be good :P

I'll stop biasing you with my ebil and horrible thoughts the fact is, dont even worry about that now, enjoy it as much as you can, enjoy your studies, your free time and such, because once gone... it is gone alright ;P

we (the old geezers from around here :P) happen to have thought these things cuz we've someway or another reached to the important fact to at least try to get it (even if we miserably failed to do so lol) so, at this point I think sort of like... I wish I would have enjoyed more my childhood I guess, I grew up too fast :( and that sucks, cuz now I cant go back :P

Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: J-ROC on April 08, 2004, 06:01:15 PM
All that means is that you have to make the appropriate adjustments such that you can enjoy your adulthood without being irresponsible.

Yeah, responsibility sucks...but that doesn't mean you have to be bitter and crusty like me.  Fufil your responsibilities...but one of them that should get ignored is yourself.

I would officially like to B.itch about drunk drivers.

I went into Edmonton yesterday with a friend of mine to watch a movie and just hang out.  It's about two hours of highway driving to get there.  While we were driving back, some a$$hole was driving on the wrong side of the road.  We had to go to the other side of the road and then into the ditch.  Needless to say, I was scared out of my mind.  
We turned around, got the liscene plate number and called the cops.

Drunk driver almost killed me last night.
I hate 'em.

Hey! wait for the speech, CC! you'll have a better aim once I'm on the podium :P

Jeysie -
Are you trying to rob me of this honour? :o I'll nominate you for next week ;P

Thank you very much, all you wonderful people (Say) for choosing me to be your b.itch of the week! Let me just add that no one is more worthy of this title than I. All those who know me agree that I'm a high-riding b.itch (except for my mother, but that's just because it reflects badly on her). Not only do I deserve to be the b.itch of the week, I should be named this forum's ultimate b.itch for life, as I am a far worse b.itch than any of you would care to know (as hard as you might find it to believe, THIS IS MY NICE SIDE). If I started to REALLY b.itch here, this entire forum would grind to a halt with owe and this thread would crash and be locked forever, for no one would be able to compete with my b.itchieness. Thank you very much for this title (and all the oranges) 8)

*Squeezes oranges into orange juice*

Mmmm, vitamin C  ;)

HAHAHAHAH!! <3
Yeah, the hard drive died, a memory chip is dead (that might be why it won't start up, and possibly the motherboard is dead.  So I'm using my mom's PC, but the lame thing is Win98 so it can't handle both Dreamweaver MX 2004 and any other Macromedia program open at the same time (for more than 5 minutes) or it freezes and crashes...

Not to mention, I usually have tons of stuff open when doing updates: MSN, several IE windows, FTP, Outlook, Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks and Windows Explorer windows...  Of course not all at once, but if this was my previous PC I could and have done that before with no problems.  ;D

Just to set the record firmly crooked...

The question is not whether or not I am a b****, because I most obviously am. (Unless you've been snoozing through all my long rants, which is probably a good choice.) The bit that surprised me was why Racx was the one to comment on it. ;)

Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Jeysie on June 22, 2004, 08:35:22 AM
Well, OK, if you like I'll live up to my title and b****. But just remember, you asked for it. ;)

Work stuff:

My stupid, slow, Win95, IE5 running work station. It's slow doing everything, and chokes and dies on such complicated things as rendering webpages, opening Word documents, and copying files from floppy disks.

My co-worker, who has the most utterly tasteless sense of humor. And this criticism is coming from me, the proud perv, mind you.

The invoices printer, which mangles as many invoices as it prints.

The copier, which mangles one out of every three copies.

The database, which is so lacking in basic functionality it's not funny.

Bus stuff:

People who wear headphones and then have the music so loud you can hear it anyway. What's the damn point? At least be an honest inconsiderate jerk, and just blare the stuff straight out. And why is it always rap or heavy metal?

People who have loud conversations that consist of nothing but cursing. I'm not offended by profanity as a general rule, but even I don't want to spend 30 minutes listening to people screaming swear words at each other.

Bus drivers who are 15 minutes late... and then go off and get coffee! Um, hello? When I'm late for work (which I will be since you're late, Bus Driver Person), I think my boss would get cranky if I went off to get coffee!

The fact that it is utterly impossible to find a place to stand and wait at the bus station that is not near someone smoking. I think I need to learn to be like Guybrush Threepwood and hold my breath for ten minutes.

The reduced summer schedule. Why? I find it hard to believe that any route time outside of the 6-8AM and 2-3PM range is less travelled during the summer, yet they reduce the whole day.

People who have conversations about their drug rehab or jail probation... and *complain* about it! You were expecting a cakewalk, maybe?

Random stuff:

Grocery baggers who do things like put Gatorade bottles on top of bread and eggs.

Rude or incompetent retail clerks. I worked in retail, I know it blows, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't still do your job right.

Stupid drivers. I could write an entire essay about this one.

There. A nice short list to keep Racx happy. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz

2. The mosquito that woke me up in the middle of my sleep cycle last night, and thus is the cause of my current headache.
3. The garage owner where I bought my (new) second hand car, which is still not ready yet, althought it's been almost a month since I ordered it. >:(

Thank you, thank you very much.

I agree with Say, we're rather un-mixable.

I'm going to gripe again. :P

For some reason, when I try to print invoices, it prints one invoice on the correct printer, then it prints the rest on the wrong printer. If we reboot, we can print one on the correct printer again, but then again it switches to the wrong printer again. And I think our IT person is on vacation. Lovely. :P

Peace & Luv, Liz
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Yonkey on June 28, 2004, 10:47:03 AM
When you send the print command, do you first do a test invoice, and then send the rest to print?  Or do you print all invoices at once?  ???

It sounds like crappy software that reverts to the "default" printer instead of the one set from the first invoice.  Let me guess, it's DOS-based too?  XD

What's also a b.itch is political games. >:(
Yesterday was the top day until now: first we had a 'no', then we had a 'yes', then a 'no', then a 'yes', another 'yes', and finally a 'no'. Today we had a partial 'yes'. To what question am I giving the answers? Do we fuse (with that which was an administration until now)? The prelude to this game is also a b.itch. First we had June 15, 2004, then we had January 1, 2005, then July 10, 2004, and finally it has become June 30, 2004, July 1, ... Who knows what's next  and when (there's still a part missing)!
I'll post the answer to the Quiz in the quiz-thread.

I want to win b.itch of the week again.  So I am going to b.itch every day this week!  I am going to insert a random rant into a post in this thread every day.  Todays topic: Star Wars
First of all, they shoot lasers and fly spaceships in Star Wars.  Secondly, the people shooting the lasers, and flying the spaceships, and using the high-tech stuff are definitely humans.  So how the hell can it take place "a long time ago"?  I mean, honestly!! If humans could've done that a long time ago, do you think we'd be sending thingies to MARS??? NO!!!!!  Can't you at least make the introduction to your movies, I dunno...REALISTIC?  Most authors try to do that, but I guess George Lucas is above that?
Speaking of which, what makes him a good writer anyways?  Can one person name one virtue of his writing other than, I dunno, the cult it's created?

You people expect me to do all the work, don't you?  Well, you know what?  I was b.itch last week--and I'll be b.itch this week again too it looks like.  Do you know how stressful it is to be b.itch of the week?  I'll b.itch about it to you!
FIRST, you have to be irritated, which above all else is the MOST irritating part of the job.  I mean, honestly, we b.itches need to find something to b.itch about--and that is NO PICNIC!!
As if that weren't enough, then you have to relive the irritation of being irritated!  You have to talk/type about it eloquently enough to call it a successful b.itch.  This, for example, is a b.itch I am proud of!

But I'm not going to carry the weight of being b.itch all on my own!  You all have to start PULLING YOUR WEIGHT AROUND HERE!!

Random rant:

Why do my co-workers have to be so friendly? Before I sound demented, it's not that I want them to be mean or anything, just less chatty. It leaves me in the rather annoying situation where I have to figure out the quickest way to end the attempted conversation (because I'm, you know, trying to concentrate on WORKING! :P ) without seeming like a b****. A few situations that come to mind:

* One co-worker insists on always bugging me about the fact that my monitor is dusty. It's like, I can see the damn display just fine, the damn monitor is going to fry my eyes anyway because it's too old to have a decent refresh rate, so why waste my time cleaning it every day?

Of course, I once came in to find that somebody (gee, I wonder who?) had written "WASH ME" in the dust, and I then had to waste time cleaning it because the letters were too distracting to see through. Thanks a lot.

(Note: I'm hardly a slob, I just prefer not to bother cleaning something when there isn't a practical need for it.)

* One day I was busy separating invoices to be mailed, and the same co-worker came by and asked, "Do you ever miss?" In hind-sight, I wish I had thought to say, "Only when people distract me by talking to me!"

* Today, the same co-worker (can you tell I just love this guy? Not.) asked me in a suggestive voice, "So, where is Harrison taking you for the weekend?" (Seems like everybody *else* is going somewhere fancy for the weekend, yay sucky me.) I offered, "Well, actually, he's working all weekend because of what's going on in Florida. Oh, but we are going to the Berkshires on Sunday night. For a party for him and his family members. The attendence of which will consist solely of him and his family members." The co-worker then noted, "Wow, going to the Berkshires for the weekend sounds about as exciting as going to Palmer for the weekend." I noted, "Yep, more or less." (Palmer is a very dinky town set in the middle of Booniesville, MA, so in other words, going to the Berkshires for a weekend is mostly boring.)

Of course, he's always making stupid suggestive (and inappropriate) comments about Harrison and I anyway. It's like, "If anything were going to happen, I'm reasonably sure it would have by this point, so could you maybe SHUT UP ABOUT IT?! Thanks."

Gripe, gripe, gripe, must kill co-worker.

Plus, they always pick on me when I leave early. Well, maybe if I had enough WORK to stay the whole shift, I would. I could just sit around with my thumbs up my butt doing nothing the rest of the shift and wasting my pay, if it makes you feel better. LEAVE ME ALONE!

Of course, on the rare days I do have enough work to stay later, another co-worker invariable comments... "Busy today, isn't it?" Me: "Yep." Co-worker: "Do you like it when it's busy?" Me: "Sometimes." (I dunno, what am I supposed to say? Since it is busy, I'm trying to get work done, so how about leaving me alone to do it? Thanks.)

BLAAAAAARGH!

(end rant)

Peace & Luv, Liz

Have you tried ignoring the remarks they make yet? :)
BTW, there's a difference between being friendly and being annoying. My co-workers are friendly, but they don't annoy me with stupid remarks.
I have too much work I want to do these days:
a) trying to keep koko behind me in posting position as long as I can
b) importing mails from OE4 to OE6
c) work stuff because the programmer that's supposed to develop a script to make my life easier is not replying to my reminders. :-X

I have tried ignoring the co-worker I don't like. It does provide the immediate benefits of not having to bother interacting with him, but seems to do nothing for clueing him in that I don't want to be bothered.

Unfortunately the "Busy today, isn't it?" co-worker is slightly higher-up, and therefore ignoring her is not a wise idea.

Post by: Yonkey on August 13, 2004, 09:43:02 PM
I haven't had many annoying co-workers like that before.  The times I did, I usually just say something like "Wow.  You're funny."  or "A-HAA-HAAA" (in more of a mocking laugh than a real one).

But if they ever made rude comments (most likely as a joke) I'd just give them a dirty looks, or say "Excuse me?!" in a pissed off sort of way :suffer:.  Usually they learn, and if not, just start walking towards them while you say it, as if you're ready to beat them to a pulp.  8)

That would work if:

1. I was scary/intimidating-looking. (Harrison says I'm funny-looking in the literal sense when I'm angry. Bah.)

2. The co-worker in question wasn't a 50-something guy, who, while not tough-looking per se, isn't a push-over either.

3. It was a bigger office. The main reason I haven't complained or been pushy is because everyone else has been there for several years and are all used to each other's quirks. I have a feeling that the ribbing I'd get after I got cranky about some of the jokes would be worse than the current ribbing.

Note to self: Stop getting jobs in small offices. :P

Anyways, try to be a subtle twerp.  It works at school.  Say things like "I like that shirt/tie!  Maybe I should get one for my four year old cousin."  If they get offended, you can always say "I'm so sorry!  I never meant to hurt your feelings!"  But you have to say it seriously.
Ok, so I only do that at school once in a while.  Most of the time I'm not a subtle twerp--just a jerk if you're annoying. XB

Generally, the only time you and I are on MSN together, it's 5:30am and I'm just checking my e-mail before getting ready for work. That might explain it.

Rant #1:

I've come to the conclusion that all cars need a "back horn". This is essentially the same as a regular car horn, except that the "speakers" and sound are directed from the back of the car at the people behind you. This would serve several purposes, with the two main ones being:

A. When you're stopped in your car and unable to move because someone's crossing the street, or you're turning and there's no opening available, and people behind you are honking at you to move. You can then use your back horn to honk back at them, essentially saying "F*** off, buddy, I can't go anywhere without causing an accident, and then you'll be even more stuck."

There's been a few times where I was walking by such a spectacle, and was tempted to walk up to one of the cars honking and point out that the person they're honking at can't move, but things always cleared up before I got the chance.

B. When you're trying to back up and there's someone in your way... pedestrians or cars that are just "standing around" for no reason. You can then use your back horn to say, "Hi, move your ass, would you?!"

Rant #2: I was crossing an intersection today where the light was green for me and the cars moving in the same direction as me. I checked behind me, saw that none of the cars had their turn signals on, and started to cross the road. As I was halfway across, it ends up that one of the cars I had checked was indeed turning where I was after all, and leaned out of his window to yell at me for crossing. Well, buddy, if you had used your TURN SIGNAL and thus had let me known you were TURNING, I would have been happy to wait. As it is, you are free to pull over, get out of your car, and kiss my ass. This isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened, and it annoys the hell out of me. TURN SIGNALS, people, they put them on the cars for a reason!

Rant #2.5: This reminds me of the time a while back I was crossing an intersection where they were doing construction, and there was a police officer directing traffic. As I got to the curb, the officer was waving the cars going in the same direction as me, so I started to cross. Then, without bothering to look behind himself to check the area where I was, he starts waving through the cars that would be going through where I was crossing! It was only when he saw the cars weren't moving that he turned and saw me, and yelled at me that I should be paying attention, even though it was him that wasn't paying attention. Jerk. Nice to know we taxpayers are paying officers to let pedestrians get run over. :P

Rant #2.9: I think I'm just going to buy an airhorn and carry it with me. Then when some jerk claims I don't have the right of way when I do, or almost hits me because he ran a red light, or some crap like that, I can honk at him.

Me: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!  :furious: :furious:

Rant Summary: People who DON'T USE THEIR BRAINS piss me off. Especially when said people are riding around in 1+ ton metal contraptions and I'm 180 pounds of squishy stuff.

As my mom used to be fond of saying: "Use your brain for something other than a hat rack!"

You know... after mulling over those experiences, as well as a multitude of experiences with Harrison and with my co-workers, I can't help but think that the reason my self-esteem and self-confidence are so lousy is because nobody ever EVER takes me seriously.

I've lost count of the number of times I've had this sort of conversation with Harrison:

Me: (makes some kind of commentary (usually negative) about something)

Harrison: You're just saying that because you haven't tried it/don't know about it.

Me: Actually, I have tried it/do know about it. (tells story of exactly how I tried it/know about it.)

Harrison: Oh.

Me thinking: Thanks for being condescending.

You'd think after 7 years he'd get a clue, but I guess not.

Then of course, there's my co-workers:

Co-worker: (tells me something I already know)
Me: Um, thanks.
Me thinking: Why the hell are you wasting my time telling me something I already know?

Is there just something about the way I look that screams "Clueless Idiot" or something? I gotta know. I mean, how am I supposed to feel good about myself when people keep treating me like I'm a kindergarderner?

Edit: Actually, now that I mull it over even more, yeah, I must have "Clueless Idiot" tattooed on my forehead. My ex-boyfriend used to also tell me stuff I already knew like he was doing me a big favor.

Well this month im upgrading my computer so i will install XP but after installing XP im gonna install 98se :D

I could dual boot with XP and 3.11, lol :D, actually im going to buy a copy of 3.11 off of Ebay ;), its my favourite OS ;)

But seriously with XP if you reinstall it you have to ring up and get another activation code or get them to send an email >:(, its so annoying i mean with all the crap you can get off of the internet you would be ringing up for a new activation key every year >:(, and safe mode is really crap in XP >:(, my friend was trying to fix something through safe mode but it wasnt working cos safe mode was acting basically exactly the same as normal mode >:(

I don't like any Microsoft OS, compared to OSs like Linux. I mainly use Windows for compatibility.

Compared to other versions of Windows, I think XP's okay(2000, and 98SE dualboot is better).

1. Why is it that I can spend 6 hours standing and walking all over an amusement park and not feel the least bit hungry, but when I spend a 6 hour shift doing nothing but sitting on my ass, I get hungry every 2 hours? So apparently, more work=less hungry & less work=more hungry. Uh, WTF?

2. Why is it that I can spend 3-4 days out of the week with almost nothing to do, yet the 1-2 days a week I have extra "regular" work to do (like more invoices), everyone *then* dumps a ton of projects onto my lap? Um, hello, why not give them to me to do on the days I'm sitting around with my thumbs up my ass?

Easy.  When you're doing more, your mind is distracted by other things, such as the tiredness from your legs, feet, etc.  It's normal to not feel hungry when you're very busy, particularly when it's physical work.


2.

Easy. Murphy's Law. :D  Seriously, things like that happen later in the week because they're being developed or planned early in the week.  It's not like people go home on the weekend and do their plans then.  So that's why it usually ends up ad the end of the week.


Dr. Jimmy Boi sez so. :D

I guess I can buy #1 answer, although I don't see why I didn't get hungry later while in the car. Actually, I don't see why my tummy can't just behave itself all the time. :(

As for #2... actually, my busy day is always Tuesday. XD Monday and Friday are usually slow, and Wednesday and Thursday are semi-slow. I hate Tuesdays... everything always gets dumped into my lap. Of course, with the holiday, today is virtual Tuesday.

Edit: Speaking of, my boss just poked her head in and asked if I have time to log and mail checks. Let's see... I still have 80+ invoices and 150+ statements to mail, and the office is only open for another hour. NO, I DON'T HAVE TIME!! :P

Well, #2 WAS complete bollocks. :)  Except the Murphy's Law bit.  Where I used to work, we would be quiet all week, and then when the weekends hit, we wouldn't have enough pepole for the work we had. :S

As for the continuation of #1, it could be your body still dealing with the exercise. I dunno.  My tummy doesn't behave.  But as they said to me at bootcamp manyt imes over:  "Mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it don't matter." XD

Well this month im upgrading my computer so i will install XP but after installing XP im gonna install 98se :D
You might want to reverse those two OS's, as I think Win98 doesn't have a boot-manager, whereas XP does, that is, as long as the other OS is a Windows-OS, 'cos it can't see squat of my Linux-partition. I just keep XP because some things just don't run that well in Linux (like certain games), including certain Javascript-online-games, like this (http://www.popcap.com/gamepopup.php?theGame=insaniquarium) one.

Hey! And I thought you guys all said I didn't know what I was talking about when I complained about the idea of the activation code bit in XP. :P
Actually, the activation keycode is not what bothers me the most. It's just the fact it reboots far too much, or I have to reboot it (now I turned off the automatic rebooting so I could finally see what the BSOD's were about). It's also managed to shutdown FireFox (in Windows), without any explanation whatsoever. And it's hell trying to get to your own documents when you re-install, whilst in SuSe Linux 9.1 it's kid's play. 8)

Last weekend the ICT department at work moved the main switch to our new office building. We're in an office container and won't move to that same office building for another two weeks. I've had the last two days off, but my colleagues have been telling me they've been having trouble with network connections from Monday. I pinged a few servers today: It went something like this:
Quote
Answer from 10.101.100.23...
Answer from 10.101.100.23...
Time-out
Time-out
Answer from 10.101.100.23...
and so on...
So, M$-Outlook crashed several times, at one time I couldn't exit another application on a server, we got kicked out of our bookkeeping program (client/server based), and  when that happens someone has to manually 'kill' the connection because otherwise your connection remains active for a while. Other than that, at times it's also veeeeeery slow. And we probably wil have to endure that kind of behavior until we move the 21st, because ICT can't find the source of the disturbance. :furious:

Part 2:
Today (actually yesterday, technically speaking, since it's past midnight) our network printers were offline most of the day We were also kicked out of the bookkeeping system twice, and we found out a report that was being corrected and was located on a network drive, suddenly lost all its make-up (?). Actually, it wasn't lost, but changed into (something like) 'Standard-indented'. We lost at least a whole hour trying to rectify that alteration as best as we could.. :furious:

Ok, I have a multi-part b.itch today....

Part I.
People who ignore you.  Say, for example, somebody comes back from being away on AIM.  You send them an IM all "Hi!" and they say "hi" and then you ask "What's up?" and then an hour and 10 minutes later THEY STILL HAVEN'T ANSWERED!!!!  RAH!

Part II.
People who treat you like a moron.  Thank you mother.  I had forgotten what I do every damn night.
That is all.

Part III.
People who are a*******.  Especially 31 year old a******* who, in the majority of their "romantic relationships", never met their "girlfriend" because it was over the Internet, and then they proceed to pass judgement over me because I haven't had any romantic relationships at all (at age 17--and he knows how old I am).

Part IV.
GUIDANCE!  Yesterday, I filled out a freaking card saying I wanted to meet with my guidance counsellor, because--as usual--he wasn't available when I had time to go to the guidance office.  The usual, proper response to one of those cards is to call someone out of class to see them.  Did I get called down? NO.  RAH!

There was a Part V, but I forgot it. ;D

The network connection was fairly stable from Monday-Thursday but today...
- Bookkeeping program crashed
- M$ Outlook crashed
- Network shares were unavailable

In fact, thet nwetwork was completely down, and this time, it wasn't only in our office container, but another financial colleague, who was located in the' old' office-building. suffered the same fate. Then, many monutes later (at least half on hour), the network was back on-line, but we still couldn't get into our bookkeeping program. Pinged server(s), got answer, tried direct access to database, that worked too, rebooted, still nothing...Bear in mind there's some kind of service running on another pc that serves as an in-between between the clients and the server. The department head called the ICT-guy who's actually not that bright on ICT matters, who asked if I had tried rebooting. :furious: What does he think, I'm an ICT-moron? So, a little while later I got a call from another ICT-guy, who's somewhat brighter, and I explained to him he should try re-starting the service. However, he said he was going to re-boot the pc, to be sure, and another few minutes later everything was fixed. There was one good side to this black-out, at least we had time to prepare for our upcoming move next TUesday to the new office building.

You fellows have this odd tendency to treat women like they're mysterious and magical objects.

Treat a girl that you like just as you would any person you were going to talk to for the first time to befriend them, and you'll do fine. Your goal isn't to get her to fall all over you in worship from the first glance (yes, I know you'd all love that to happen), it's just simply to let her know you exist and you'd be interested in being able to hang out with her. If you're caught up in wanting to badly impress her, and worried that she'll hate you forever from first glance, then no wonder you're all nervous!

I know you have lady friends, Questie... just talk to that girl the way you did to your pals when you first met them. The time to move towards romance is *after* you're already comfortable talking to her, so don't sweat it. :)

More b.itching from me:
On moving day this week we had to wait half a day before we could get to work in our new offices, due to the slowness of the movers. Then, since we moved in, we've had a painter painting while we worked and we've had  a visit from people removing some foil from the climate-control outlets. There's a door missing to the department head's office. At least his pyhsical distance to our office has now become an obstacle to bother us by standing behind your back looking at what you're doing too much. :P More on moving day, the network cables took ages to arrive, luckily I took mine with my in my laptop carrying bag. I didn't take the network cable for the printers though, which took even longer than the pc's (dekstops). The fax that moved with us is located on the other side of the floor, which means if we want to fax something, we have to walk. And yet, the copying machine is on our side of the floor, which means the people from the HRM-deparment will have to take a walk when they want to copy something. ::)

And the biggest b.b**** of them all is the fact someone is playing political games far above my head and I do not like what they're concocting. :stabs: bomb: :furious:

Yesterday was clearly not a good day at this house. You see, I had internet connectivity problems, no matter what I tried, Linux refused to come up with anything useful. My brother installed a router yesterday afternoon, and told me to delete the previous gateway (the fileserver's IP-address). However, I never configured any gateway whilst setting up Linux, at least not that I can remember, so I figured I'd just start it up and see what IP-number it came up with. ANd lo, behold, there was an IP-number, in the updated range, messengers connected, mail came in, all seemed OK.... :pleased:
But then, I tried to send an e-mail. TB tried and kept trying, but eventually told me it wouldn't connect to my smtp-server, and asked if I could take a look at the settings. So, I told my brotherI had problems, and after a while he suggested I updated my IP-adress to another range. I don't know how to update an IP-address in Linux yet, so I just rebooted. And whilst booting, I saw it acquired a new IP-address, this time in the right adjusted range, so I though my problems would be over.  :stop: No such luck though, messenger couldn't connect and took ages to maximize, mail still couldn't be sent. So I went re-configuring. Try this, try that, try something else, yet another setting, but to no avail. So I thought, let's try Windows! It got an IP-address in the updated range too, but slightly different from the one Linux had, and more importantly, it worked. So, I thought, since it just worked in Windows, maybe that will somehow seep through to the Linux-partition and so when I reboot that it will come out fine. :furious: This time I didn't even get an IP-address!, and when I finally gave up I noticed I seemed to have changed my profile somehow so I couldn't shutdown anymore. So, cancel that, and re-reconfigure again. Ofcourse a profile is loaded at startup, so I still had to logout first. And then, when I tried to login again, the connection between my keyboard and pc seemed to have vanished again. (something I've encountered before) Luckily, there were options available on the login-window, and one of them was to shut down, so I just did that. :zzz:

I had a nice little laptop from work, and I was given enough clearance to do just that little bit more normal users can't do (such as installaing new codecs for my media player, browser plugins, and moving sound files of my own into the media-folder within c:\winnt. Life was sweet and quiet. ;)
Due to several people asking me for a pdf-version of a certain financial document I could only print on paper, the ICT department was asked if they could install a pdf-printer. At that point, I also still had a VPN-client but had already been warned it would be deleted at the next occasion. So, they asked if I could bring in the laptop to the ICT-department, to 'verify its functionalities'. When I read that, I knew that was going to happen when I brought it in, so I alerted my two closest colleagues, that the VPN-end was near. So, I expected that. What I did not expect, was that he would also downgrade my profile to that of a normal user! :furious:  And the best/worst part of all this is: a) he didn't fix the windowed splash startup-screen and b) he didn't do anything about the battery. The problem about the battery is a) it's worn down and b) it goes into suspend mode without the least bit of auditive warning, at most a small visual warning, the LED-battery status indicator. However, I don't look at that LED, I look at the screen, where there's absolutely no warning whatsoever. When I then plug it into the electricity, I can get the message warning me of low battery level twice, and a few seconds afterwards, I get the 'beep' that should have been there at least together with the warning message. In short, my laptop is completely going down the deep end and what does the ICT-department do about that? Nothing! :furious:

Since the highest Acrobat Reader for Linux is version 5 I had to resort to WinXP. :-X But because I don't do e-mail there, I had to switch back to Linux, to send the mail to work. Yes, I informed ICT of the problem do do ya think i've had a reply from them? Nope. :furious:

Okay, I'll b.itch...
I am in a Journalistic Writing class.  We are supposed to be putting out the school newspaper but because various people did not finish their articles in time, we are delaying it.  So now, I, who have finished my article, have *nothing* to do but relearn (again) how to do layout for the newspaper.  This was supposed to be a fun class, but now I am nothing but bored in it!  RAH!!

It wouldn't have been a problem for me had Adobe Reader 6 been installed on my work laptop. AFAIK it fulfills the requirements, but I could not install it before, and since they (ICT) fiddled with it, I can do even less, so I had little choice. And yes, the switching is annoying, because when I want to run XP, I have to wait for the boot manager to appear, because XP is second, (Linux is first ofcourse), and when I try to do something internet-related, XP (home) takes ages to start that part up, even after it's finished all else. :furious: When was the last time I mentioned my attitude towards XP Home? :stabs:

Stuff to b**** about...

(lots of stuff that violates a few forum rules)

Racx doing badly in school. I can speak from personal experience that not getting good grades and a diploma in school is a guaranteed way to have crappy low-pay no-benefit jobs for the rest of your life.

Speaking of crappy jobs... OK. Last month when we did the monthly statements to our customers, I concentrated on getting them mailed out as soon as I got them. By doing this, all my usual weekly work got backed up. I then got griped at because the weekly work didn't get done timely enough.

So this month I worked on getting the weekly stuff done first. I then came in today and got griped at because I didn't get the statements mailed out soon enough. (Never mind that every other month the statements weren't even *printed* yet on the 5th, let alone mailed.)

MAKE UP YOUR @$#%#^!! MINDS PEOPLE!!

I'd like to b**** at myself today.

At my job we often do price quotes for people on various products, and part of my job is to type up quotes into e-mails to send to customers.

In an attempt to make things go a little clearer, my boss had me make a worksheet that she could fill out with all the pertinent info. So I dutifully mocked one up and printed it out for her to use.

Today I get a bunch of quotes with the worksheets all nice and filled out, and realized that in the part where all the product info goes I FORGOT TO PUT A "PRICE" INPUT COLUMN. FOR A PRICE QUOTE WORKSHEET.

(paints the word LOSER on her forehead)

Look at it this way Racx... no matter how much you hate school, going to school and doing well now means it'll be far, far less likely that you'll get stuck with a job you hate later. Going to school lasts ~12 years at the minimum... but you'll need to work for ~40 years.

So far I've spent 8 years regretting dropping out of school, and have, by current life expectancy calculations, another 50 years to go. (At the rate we're going, Social Security will be useless by time I'm old enough to retire, so I'll have to work until I drop.)

Post by: Jeysie on November 13, 2004, 09:11:23 AM
The whole point of high school is to get good grades and a base foundation of learning so you can get into college. Then in college the real learning begins, so you can train in a field that interests you and have a better chance get a real job that pays real money, real benefits, and real work. I find I can't get a lot of jobs because they all require degrees.

I'd love to be able to go back to school, so I can finally get a job that doesn't suck. Unfortunately I'd need to take remedial courses just to qualify for basic stuff at a community college, then I'd have to do really good there to qualify for a "real" college so I could then finally work on a degree. That's assuming I could pay for all of that, which I can't, because all the jobs I currently can get pay near-minimum wage, which isn't even enough to afford to live on my own without a generous roommate, let alone pay for college.

Once you get down the road of dropping out of school, it's hard to get back on track once you realize it was a bad idea, unless you're really lucky or you don't mind spending twice as long and twice as much as you would have if you'd done it right the first time.

Math is more important than you think. I use a fair amount of math in my job, and I have just a simple, sucky paperwork-processing job. Math is *especially* important if you want to get into IT stuff, Racx... computer science involves some *crazy* math stuff.

English is also very important. Knowing how to express yourself in a formal and accurate manner in speech and writing is an absolute must for the working world. I once got a job literally because I was the person who wrote the most coherent and well-written resume, even though I wasn't necessarily the one with the best skills.

But I guess some people just have to learn that certain decisions are a bad idea on their own, even when someone who's already gone through it tries to save them the anguish. I hope you have better luck than I did...

I'm not advocating dropping out, but unfortunately, the useless crap doesn't stop after high school, it continues into college/university.  There were so many courses I had to take that did not relate to my field whatsoever and accordingly I did horribly in them. :P  I actually still don't even see why there are so many ridiculous math courses in Computer Science when in reality, the only math you do is basic arithmetic.  I can understand having to know high school math, since basic algebra is important for programming.  But as far as really complex things go, the majority of the time it's a computer doing all the complex calculations, not you.  

I guess school tries to give you a basic foundation for everything, and then once you know what you want to do, you specialize from that basic foundation.  Still, getting to that point is definitely not easy, and once you do get there, finding a decent job that makes use of what you've learned is a whole different problem altogether.  :-\

The first year of college was a mish-mash of different courses, because they only split it up into specialized courses the 2nd year, so yes, that year there were a lot of courses I didn't really excel at, but were not exactly required in the specialisation I was going to flollow.

The only reason why I can't put some stuff I learnt there into practise, is because our company is a big one, so we have to specialize. But if I were to have the same occupation in a small company, I'd have to have to know about most of the courses I had in those last 2 years of college (it was a 3-year degree). 8)

Oops, sorry, I forgot that the terms college and university aren't interchangable outside the US. :P

And that depends... what is TAFE? Is it some sort of vocational school? ???

And all of the IT jobs/degrees I've personally looked into around here need(ed) advanced math courses (which is why I'll never be able to get into them... was never good at much beyond advanced algebra and geometry, and I don't even remember most of that any more...)... the only ones that don't are the repair job-type ones. I guess it's different then outside the US?

I guess I should say that around here you can only get degrees from high school and college/university. There are some high schools that focus more on training for specific careers, like business and vocational high schools, but it's still high school. Even then, you're still at a disadvantage here unless you get college degree. Almost every job outside of retail work in the US needs a degree... even things like factory labor jobs need at least certs from college-esque training programs. At the very least, the person with the degree is more likely to get the nod. :P

When I use 'college' it's probably not the same as the US's college either. I consider it as not being a university but 'catering'' the same age group (18-21/24). And nowadays, with all of this Bachelor and Master talk it looks as if they're going to give the same courses too.

And that depends... what is TAFE? Is it some sort of vocational school? ???
Flash-back! Yes, I believe that question has been asked before, but I'm not good at information finding, so if you want to see, you'll have to find it yourself.

The meanings of college you'd hear in the US.

Quote
1. An institution of higher learning that grants the bachelor's degree in liberal arts or science or both.

Quote
2. An undergraduate division or school of a university offering courses and granting degrees in a particular field.

Quote
3. A school, sometimes but not always a university, offering special instruction in professional or technical subjects.

In other words, after getting thru highschool in the US, going to college is considered the next step in education. :P

Speaking as someone who went to a private school, that's not entirely true. Although, mine was a comparatively cheap one.

It depends on what kind you go to. Mine was conservative Christian, and I definately did not have more freedom than I did when I went to a public school. And it doesn't always mean you parents are rich, it depends on just how expensive and elite the school is. But I do agree that in a lot of ways it much harder for public school students.


As for university . . . there is some correlation. If your parents are rich enough to send you to an elite school, they're probably rich enough to buy your way into uni, especially now admission is leaning toward your ability to pay up-front fees rather than your academic merit. However, it doesn't have a *lot* to do with public/private school. As I've said, I went to private school, and couldn't get in based on wealth. I got in on academic merit and am going to be graduating with one heck of a HECS debt >:(.

THe company head is also a control freak b.itch. :furious: Because I was already late, as in the last moment, I decided to mail an answer to a parliamentary question directly to the one that was gathering all the different answers and then synthesizing a global answer from those). No five minutes after I had sent the mail (and ofcourse, had put the company head in cc) my direct superior (the head of the financial department) got a phone from the company head that such an answer should've passed by him first, before it got sent out. And a few moments later, a company-wide mail was sent stating that same thing. Guess who initiated the whole thing. :-\

Due to the b.itch in my previous post, I decided to re-install, because there's nothing worse than a freezing OS. Or so I thought... :-\ I fetch the SuSe 9.1 Personal CD I've used so many times to re-install in the past (with success), and start a new installation (I can't update with that), without formatting ofcourse (just like before). However, this time not everything goes according to plan, the install program (yes, YaST) freezes near the end, at about 98%. :-X :furious: I tried the CD in both my CD/RW-drive and my DVD/Reader-drive, but to no avail. Everything stalls near the end. There's also the option to install SuSe Linux via FTP, so I thought: let's try that. First I try to repair my Linux-partition, but that freezes when looking up the packages. So, I thought, let's try Updating my partition. The first try there were a few dependancy issues, but they could be resolves by downgrading to a previous version, So I checked that. However, that froze too at a certain package (some Berkeley Database, probably something to do with my Seti@home/BOINC). So I unchecked that update. Next try, another file froze, so I unchecked that too. In the end, I unchecked everything that hadn't already been installed during my previous update, except the downgrading-packages. D**n! Even those two freeze my system! :furious: Okay, in that case: risk the inconsistencies. No more packages to download, YaST moves straight on to the Finishing (install-)touch, and that's the one that creates the init-file. 63%... and then, yet another freeze. Where does the grudge this pc now has against (SuSe) Linux (and in particular YaST) come from? It worked so fine all these months, and now, suddenly, freezing everywhere.
Just to make matters complete: Thursday I got my VPN client on my work-laptop. I tried everyting at home (that was before I tried re-installing (not the repairing or upgrading, that's the following evening/night) Linux that same night BTW)): VPN connects, I can ping, I can send and receive e-mail, but there's one difference between now and the previous time I had a VPN-client, the bookkeeping-program can't connect itself. The b.itch here is the fact that I only needed the VPN to work in the bookkeeping program during the Christmas holiday. So, Friday before noon, when the person who installed that came by in our office to fix something elese and asked how my VPN worked, I told him, even though I'd already sent him a detailed mail the previous evening, after exhaustive testing. I had the afternoon off, but since I only come to work late, my work-shift ended at 13:15. At 11:30-ish, two ICT-men came by to solve my problem. They fiddled around a bit, changed some settings, and I'll probably test again on Saturday. Due to all of everything I'm b.itching about, I've not been able to come onto the forum, and the chat I''m going to let pass too. :-X
All I want is a clean Linux-install, you stupid :furious: pc!
Note: This post has been made with XP/FireFox. I might hate this OS, but at least it doesn't freeze my pc. :-\
At least I have one consolation: it can hardly get any worse than it already is. :'(

Not so much a b**** really, as it is a resigned lament of sorts...

You know, some drivers are nice people. Because of this, they want to be nice and stop so you can cross the road. Usually this is a very good thing.

But there are some days like today, where I'm once again crossing a two-lane street from the bus stop, which is a lengthy distance in either direction from a crosswalk, to my house. And there is a very nice person who decides to stop for me on my side of the road. The slight problem is that there was still a steady stream of cars going on the far side of the road. I eventually had to wave the person on to get them to go.

I find myself wishing I had a microphone I could use to talk to drivers. I then could say, "Sir/Ma'am, you are very nice for stopping for me. But given a choice between standing on the sidewalk waiting and standing in the middle of the road waiting, I'd rather stand here on the sidewalk."

It's a break-even brownie points matter for the driver, really. Like, +100 for being nice, but -100 for being a little deficient in logical reasoning. What's a grateful but stymied pedestrian to do? ;P

Peace & Luv, Liz

I have a problem of being apedestrian but I live so far in the boonies that the nearest store is miles away, I cannot walk to anything important. I supose I could walk to the corner store but that involves crossing several busy streets, and is more than a mile away.

You don't need a microphone, there are megaphones available who can do that just as well, otherwise, you're going to have to hand out a receiver to any car driver who's driving along your designated road which is a highly unpractical thing. :scholar:
When I drive my car, my view is fixed on the road and the road signs that are alongside it. That view does not, or too late, register pedestrians that are waiting alongside the road wanting to cross. However, once they're on the road, I have no problem and can see them fast enough so I can slow down and let them pass on my side too. Maybe there are other car drivers suffering from what I'm having?

@Rosedragon: no traffic lights then, I gather? :(

As for myself, I'd like to b***h about my cable internet provider, Comcast. I want to burn their souls and feast upon the flesh of their children!! Okay, that might be a little extreme. But yeah, their service sucks; it's been down nearly all day (meaning yesterday, at this point) and it only just came back up about an hour ago. When I called this morning, around 9:30, all I got was an automated message that said they were having "technical difficulties" and that service would be restored "shortly". Hmmm.... apparently "shortly" is a very relative word. For me it would mean maybe a couple hours tops, but for them it evidently means fifteen hours!!  >:(

People always need their medicines to be available to them any time of day, what good is a pharmacy that closes at 6:00? While I was in Tennessee and my mom was sick we had trouble finding pharmacy that was open late, we finally found a CVS pharmacy that was open to take prescriptions.

And Rosella, this would be the better thread for you to post your school issue... (I'm very sorry for you!) There is a girl at my school who calls me a b*****d and doesn't give a single reason, because she thinks I don't deserve one... She also made me cry on the bus ride home two days in a row, by saying that I should be nicer to people and that sort of thing...

Post by: Rosella on May 11, 2006, 07:52:04 PM
Today, I shall rant about the evil, terrible, ominous death trap that is French class.

I'll start with the board. It absolutely STINKS. I'm not sure how, or why,  but it makes me gag. Whenever someone has to clean it, they have the touch the filthy rags that wipe the stench all over. Mr. Kouame doesn't seem to realize why we need to go to the bathroom and wash our hands after touching those rags. Also, whenever you clean the board, your hand gets COVERED with the reminants of past board cleanings. Purpleish-black markings are everywhere. It's unsanitary, and it really makes me gag. While Mr. Kouame watches us suffer, he sits behind his desk, as always.

Now, this brings me to the REAL point of my rant, Mr. Kouame himself. At the beginning of the year, he tried teaching us. He gave 14 second explainations, and then gave us a quiz. Every section of the quiz counted as a grade! That makes a small quiz 4 or 5 grades! A normal quiz is only two! When asked as question about a simple concept that someone didn't understand, he typically replied by continuing with a totally different topic (and ignoring the person, even though he called on the person to ask the question,) by going over something on the same topic, but not the actual question (and then, once the question is repeated, asking the person to explain what he just said,) or by saying "It has to rhyme!" and declaring that sufficent. I was a straight A French student for 2 years, but with Mr. Kouame teaching us, no one can learn. I REALLY tried to find the answer to my question, but Mr. Kouame just WON'T help us. :(

Now, he's decided to just give us the book and let us teach ourselves. He sits behind his desk, assigns us sections, and sets us loose. One student has said many times that she really can't learn that way, but he personally attacked her saying that she didn't pay attention and didn't work and was basically stupid. I tried to defend her, and I get yelled at as well. Mr. Kouame keeps sugar packets behind his desk for some reason too. o_O And once, he went to the back and said "No one look or you get 20 point off." He stole soda that someone brought in for a party, and drank straight from it. We have an entire chapter about missing things and how things used to be, and he declined to mention a HUGE grammatical thing about how you literally say "This is missing to me," when you say "I miss this." We've been writing it wrong the entire time, and he says NOTHING. It's no wonder only 3 French students had all A's and B's on their report cards...

It's also no wonder that students flick him off when he's not looking and drop obscene comments in his suggestions box, but I'm not included in that. :P

Heh. We tried that. I told my specialty program-type-thing teacher and a really cool dude who taught us "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes" in French, and we ended up getting yelled at. They KNOW I'm not some student who wants to make trouble, but the assistant principal came into our class and yelled at us for not being accepting of Mr. Kouame's teaching styles. I don't handle being yelled at very well either, so I was like crying, and I think the assistant principal thought I wanted pity, so she was more angry. ;P

And the sad thing is, Mr. Kouame replaced the coolest teacher I've ever had. Everyone misses her so much... :'(

The assistant principal came into our class today to "see if we were prepared for our final." :P She was SOOOO trying to see if we were still bering rude to Mr. Kouame. XD

Today we had a quiz even though I wasn't there on Friday. Sherie was teaching us for one day (since, like I said, Mr. Kouame doesn't teach us,) and then we had a quiz. Mr. Kouame said that it was fair for me to take it because he "gave us time to study." Five minutes is not enough to learn a whole chapter! I CAN'T be held accountable for this!
Title: Re: The Rant Thread !!!
Post by: Rosella on May 19, 2006, 03:19:58 PM
Whee! More ranting about school!

In first period (world history,) we had a worksheet about percentages (yeah, I don't get it either.) One of the questions was "The bank charges 40% interest rate per 6 months on money borrowed. Francesco Petrarch borrowed $250 to finance his book. How much would he have to pay the bank back after one year? Two years?" My answer was 450 dollars for 1 year, and 650 for 2. To find the interest, you multiply the principal (250, in this case) by the rate (40%, or .4) and multiply by the amount of time you have to pay, oui? Since 12 months is twice 6, I put 2. 250*.4*2=200. For 2 years, I just added another 200 for another year of interest.  I was asked to write the answer to the problem on the board, so I did, work and all. My teacher said I did well, but the answers were $350 and $450. I explained what I did, but she said that it was 250*.4*.5 for six months interest, because you have to put the months (6) over 12. Then she multiplied by 2 to get one year, and ended up with 100 dollars of interest instead of 200. The rate is in TERMS of 6 months, so one year is twice the rate. When another Geometry student (all of them agreed with me, :D) tried to explain that you'd have to put the rate in terms of a year if the time is in terms of one year (making the problem 250*.8*1 for one year,) she said that we weren't doing compound interest. Compound interest is something totally different! Eventually, they asked a math teacher, who backed up my world history teacher. I know that with typical interest, it's in terms of a year, so if you only borrow money for a couple months, you don't have to pay as much, but this ISN'T in terms of a year! Eventually, the entire class was just saying "Ok, admit it, you're wrong." I probably should've dropped it, but I WASN'T wrong. When I refused, they started saying that I was being egotistical and that I should just admit it. I'm not the kind of person that won't admit she's wrong when she is, but I'm not going to say I'm wrong when I'm not! Just...now everyone thinks I'm a brat and I don't want people thinking that!

I'm sorry if it sounds like I think whoever reads this is an idiot and doesn't understand simple interest. I'm just trying to explain everything so you don't side with the other students in my class. :P

"The bank charges 40% interest rate per 6 months on money borrowed. Francesco Petrarch borrowed $250 to finance his book. How much would he have to pay the bank back after one year? Two years?"

Here's how I would answer it.  0.4 is for 6 months, so 0.8 is for 12

Total = Principle + Interest per year

Year 1 = $250 + $250 x 0.8
          = $250 + 200
          = $450 after one year

Year 2 = $450 + $250 x 0.8
          = $450 + 200
          = $650

It says interest is only on the money borrowed (i.e. the principle), and not compounded.  If compounded anually (which is usually the case), it would be:

= $450 + $450 x 0.8
= $450 + $360
= $810 in Year 2

And if interest was compounded bi-anually, it would be a lot more than that.  So, you're right and your teacher's wrong. :P  She only calculated interest for 6 months, not 12. XD

Here's how I would answer it.  0.4 is for 6 months, so 0.8 is for 12


I believe you made a calculation error
40%/halfe year makes  96% a full year

you must also calculate interst over intrest:


Total = Principle + Interest per year

halve year 1 = $250 + $250 x 0.4
                  = $250 + 100
                  = $350 after one halve year

Year 1 = $350 + $350 x 0.4
          = $350 + 140
          = $490 after one year

year 1.5 = $490 + $490 x 0.4
             = $490 + 196
             = $686 after one and a halveyear

Year 2 = $686 + $686 x 0.8
          = $686 + 274.40
          = $960.40

You're compounding interest there and the question doesn't say the interest is compounded. :P

But if it did, then you're correct and that's why I said:
And if interest was compounded bi-anually, it would be a lot more than that.

Tis alright, they say third times the charm right?
Besides when we found out that they were going to have to do it a second time my mom had a dream about it not working that time either and they had to do it for a third....
I think it all went well in the dream, hopefully it does in realiy as well.

*takes a few minutes to ponder the meaning of reality...*

On a similar note, but a bit more on topic. One of the stupid orderlies(sp) decided right before my grandma went into surgery last time to tell her all about some man they did the same surgery on that all kinds of things went wrong with and then proceeded to tell her about the awful infection he had because of it.

Now is it just me, or is that the most absolutely WRONG thing to tell someone about just before they go in for surgery?!?!?!?!?!?

It is. That's just tactless and wrong. Why make an old lady more scared than she already is because it's quite possible nothing's going to happen!!  >:(

If I were you, I'd report that nurse to the hospital administration and insist she receives some sort of disciplinary action.  That is definitely unprofessional, and a nurse should know better than to stress a patient out like that right before major surgery.
