    Optical Illusion of the Day

    If he keeps this up, his family will never go hungry again!

  3. 1 year ago 

    Been one of those weeks…

     I’ve been trying to be less of a negative, hateful person. It’s not working. 

    Not for lack of trying. 

    For instance, I was at work this past week. My home location, one of nine in the area  where I may work on any given day. I just so happened to be gone from this one for 3 weeks (vacation, covering others’ shifts), so things weren’t to my liking, let’s say. 

    I’m pretty particular. If my colleagues don’t set me up well, I tend to get upset. If the managers don’t order enough product and it ends up making me stay late, I get upset. They already know that. However, I think I crossed a line. 

    There were two bakers the night before and things weren’t set up right. I get that this is the busy season, but when I’m at a high-volume store and I’m with another baker, we do fine. This wasn’t fine. 

    Instead of being decent and confronting the senior of the two bakers that worked the previous night (as I’ve been trying to do; we have bad professional history—namely I’ve text-yelled at her for doing the same things as happened this particular night) I wrote paragraphs in the logbook naming her (which is kind of an unspoken no-no) and slamming the manager(s) for not ordering a specific item (again). 

    The kicker is when I started to confront the other baker, I backed off and told myself “Nope…don’t do it. You’re mad and it won’t solve anything.” 

    Didn’t work. I ended up spilling in the logbook and I think the store managers complained to my manager. Oops. 

    Thankfully, I apparently wasn’t the only one to blow up in the past few weeks, so my manager decided it would be better to make a stern blanket statement at the last meeting rather than chew me out. It got the point across, however what will I do next time the heat is on?

    My least favorite everything.: Rape Rape Rape

    patrickmelton:

    Got your attention? Good.

    Get a beverage. This is going to take some time.

    It’s been a little over a week since comedian Daniel Tosh has been battered on blogs and Twitter about making some jokes and remarks to a fan in the audience of a standup show on the subject of rape. I’ve been letting all…

    Thank you for raping my ears, Mr. Melton. Well said.

Titillating Magazine Cover of the Day: Jamie Lynne Grumet, a 26-year-old parenting blogger, offers her nipple to 3-year-old son Aram on the cover of this week’s Time magazine, to promote a story about attachment parenting, an approach that encourages parents to breastfeed and co-sleep with their children.
“To me, the whole point of a magazine cover is to get your attention,” says Rick Stengel, Time‘s managing editor. “From the moment that we started talking about this story as a cover possibility, it was like I couldn’t get out of the meetings. There was so much opinion and passion about it and discussion. What that told me is, boy, this is a story that people care a lot about.”

At first I was like, “Whoa, boob.” Then I read the post and thought…whoa that kid is three?

    I like how Congressmen are blatantly trying to revive a shit measure by calling something else. Like how Super Nintendo RPGs just re-used the same enemy sprites but color-swapped them. They’re both shitty cave-boss dragons. Let’s cut this throat too.

    thedailywhat:

    This Is Important, You Should Know This of the Day: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act now has more than 105 co-sponsors, and some fear the bill could go further than SOPA and PIPA in threatening online privacy. SOPA and PIPA were finally discarded earlier this year after resoundingonline protest changed the debate, but the same doesn’t yet appear to be the case with CISPA.

    According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, H.R. 3523 “would let companies spy on users and share private information with the federal government and other companies with near-total immunity from civil and criminal liability. It effectively creates a ‘cybersecurity’ exemption to all existing laws.”

    The bill could sneak through Congress quickly once it’s back in session, so be sure totrack its progress.

No Jewish burial for you!

    Use Birth Control? You're Fired!

    starline:

    greaterthanlapsed:

    We are talking about authorizing secular, for-profit employers to deny a woman coverage for birth control if the employer doesn’t believe that she and her partner should be allowed to have sex without getting pregnant. Yup, that’s right. If the owner of the Taco Bell where you work opposes birth control, Arizona legislators want to give him a legal right to deny you insurance coverage for your pills. Sadly, that isn’t even the half of it. You may want to sit down for this one. Arizona legislators know that whether or not her insurance covers it, a woman may get the prescription she needs to prevent an unintended pregnancy. They want to give her boss the right to control that too. The bill they are pushing would not only allow employers to take the insurance coverage away, but it would also make it easier for an employer who finds out that his employee uses birth control to fire her. You heard me right … to fire her.

    AAAARGH SEX IS DIRTY….

Finger touch chicken remover, or how I started blogging about the people around me and why they do what they do. I won't label this a psychology/sociology/headcase blog, as I'm not a real student (yet), but just some observations. And some random idiocy too...for sanity's sake.
