cob: related to work:

Friggin mechanical contractors that design and build an entire mechanical system with NO friggin isolation valves or valves located in the correct position for testing equipment function!!

Seriously, having to shut down an entire building to fix one STUPID steam trap is making me CRAZY!!!!!!

Do they have MONKEYS installing?

*i guess this should have gone into the work rants.....*

i wholeheartedly agree with doodle.

cob: they are running a "pre-checkout inspection" on our flat on thursday, despite the fact that term doesn't end until 7th july, and our lease doesn't end until the 3rd of september. They are marking down any "damages" done to the flat, and will charge us astronomical charges to repair them. We freaking live here. It's entirely possible that the place will have a few scratches, especially when it's as shittly-made as this place is; they shouldn't be charging £60 per wall to have it redecorated. Or £25 {per square meter} of fucking shitty carpet tiling that damn well attracts dirt.

Oh, and despite encouraging us to move out over the summer, they won't let us end our lease early.

Oh, god, doodle, I see the same CRAP all the time where I live. Right outside my window, or if I sit on my balcony, my neighbors kiddy-corner across the street have a HUMMER parked out there, several boats, ATVs, a jet-ski, you name it. And they spend HOURS every weekend day WASHING these things. Leaving water running down the street and soap and god-knows-how-many toxic chemicals.

Blech. At least I can't see their back yard so I don't know if they have a grill or not....but I'd guess they do.

cob: people who suck up the planet's energy resources for themselves, not only for things like SUVs, but twelve thousand dollar propane barbeques and other useless accoutrements of the fabulously bored and affluent (and/or heavily in debt trying to "keep up"). FUCK OFF! You disrespectful little shitheads. WHY do you need a barbeque that has the capacity to drain two full propane tanks in less than three hours? Do you have even the slightest little bit of respect for the rest of us here on this planet, with whom you are expected to SHARE the resources, and, oh, maybe leave some for the next couple of generations? Fuckwits!!

Both of my parents worked for BC Hydro, back when it was BC Electric, even. My brother works there now. From earliest childhood, we were taught to very carefully conserve, conserve, conserve ALL the energy resources available to us. We had little orange owl stickers on all our light switch plates, to remind us to turn out the lights when we left the room. I did my fucking sixth grade science project on renewable energy, for fuck's sake. In 1979! And now I'm a grown up who has to watch my fucking peers driving their SUVs and minivans to the annual grilling of a few steaks on a twelve thousand dollar barbeque. Well fuck the lot of them!!!!!

WHY DON'T YOU LIGHT YOUR FUCKING CIGARETTES OFF IT, TOO! Fucktards!

Greenbean, that bothers me too. I respect the troops, but since when was this war (or any other war in the past fifty years) been about the Bill of Rights? We invaded them, not the other way around.

people at the library who are not there to do traditional library type things.

my job requires me to do research deep in the New York Public Library. You know, the big landmark building with the steps and the lions right in the middle of midtown. specifically, i'm deep in the bowels of the periodicals sections, reading old newspapers from the 70's.

this library branch is devoted only to research materials. it's not a circulating library. there is one public reading room and one general use computer lab, but all in all it's a place you go to do RESEARCH. in depth nerdy serious academic research.

so you would think that most of the people in this library would be researchers, librarians, students, etc.

no. 90% of the people at the RESEARCH library or either tourists or creepy old men who are half insane with nowhere else to go. this means four teenage girls dragged by their mother to look at etchings congregating RIGHT in the doorway to the microfilm room to kvetch about how dumb this library is and how they have to hurry and get to the TKTS line soon so they can get rush seats for The Lion King. this means sitting next to this guy WHO IS ACTUALLY INSANE and totally unable to use the microfiche machine and keeps throwing loud nursing home style temper tantrums like a foot from my head. this means waiting in line for the bathroom even though i'm like one of 5 people actually there using the library's facilities for what they're meant to be used for (you know, like, research).

i love coming to this beautiful building every day, and i love the research i'm doing. i just wish other people would be more respectful of those who are legitimately using the facilities. and also that there were more day programs or subsidized institutions or something where the insane people could go and be properly supervised.

that is all.

Ok, noooo disrespect to the troops in Iraq,...but I was watching Letterman last night and Jesse James was on there talking about how he went to visit troops (which is all fine and nice of him) but then hes says, "say what you want about the war and Bush, but its because of these guys that you can say it" and everyone applauded.
But I'm like, "wait, they are fighting for our freedom of speech?!?" Grr. That really bugs me. i feel bad about the situation and the loss of lives but dont tell me its being done so I can say what I think. I really dont see the connection.

Our PC crashed, and will cost $350 to fix.

Because of this, I am backed up to my eyeballs in work--even more than normal.

JUST BECAUSE I am working from home on a particular day and JUST BECAUSE I have some minor procrastination problems from time to time does NOT give you license to call me up and be all shocked when I answer the phone because you specifically wanted to talk to my answering machine and be all, "Oh, what are you doing at home? Aren't you working today?" Yeah, that's what I WAS DOING BEFORE YOU CALLED. And then when I realize it's not my office calling me about something related to work, DON'T EVEN TRY TO PUT ME ON A GUILT TRIP for not wanting to chat about absolutely nothing of any importance that can't wait until 6PM while you walk from the grocery store to your car or whatever it is that you're doing. FIND A REAL HOBBY! Next time you WILL get my answering machine, whether I'm working or not. Asshole.

lilac - yes! In most of the borders/smiths/little corner shops the music magazines are between porn and cars. I don't want nekkid lady-flesh, and I don't want cars... and I don't want to have to trawl through them to find my music magazine.
