I work at a museum, and we close at 6 pm. I want to go home by that time, but people still are hanging around staring at the artwork, and it's frustrating because we're open 8 hours a day, yet people come in at 5:15 to see the work, unaware of the closing hours, so me and the security guards sit around waiting for people to leave so we can close the register and get out.

Cob: having a major freak-out and wanting to post it and not knowing if it fits in death of a loved one, survivors space, or letters, family problems, or Okayers. Gah.

Anna--this is a matter of Security ( your personal security and the security guys in general)

You must talk to your your supervisor about getting closing hours enforced. Use the "It gets darker earlier in winter "." It's more hazardous for a single woman to leave later "(in a commercial area there are people around at 6- they are all going home ) "the longer it takes you to leave the more deserted (sp?) it becomes. "

(Plus as librians around the nation are finding out- the homeless and large groups of teenagers are starting to come into libraries and either create trouble or destroy things.)

I can't understand why the Guards are WAITING for the people to leave. They should be making announcements through the galleries at 5:30 that you are closing in 30 mins and do the same at 5:50. By 6:00 they should be escorting the people out the (locked) front door. Then they should be making their rounds of checking bathrooms, closets, galleries, etc.

Is this waiting so we won't "hurt/ upset" the patrons feelings?

Hey Busties any other ideas of how she could frame this discussion?

One more thing- after you have this discussion- write down to the best of your memory what you said and what your boss said . Then make a copy (put the copy away in your desk)and put the original in a sealed, signed envelope and mail it to your self.

We care about you--take care

Cob: This board (sorry) sad.gif

Is there any way to change the settings so the oldest post is on the top and the newest post is on the bottom and the highest page? The current format drives me nuts because if I want to keep up with posts I have to scroll up and down and it's just disorienting. Help?! blink.gif

nope....because this is a self regulated board, the threads tend to be suuuuuuuuper long, we voted to have it formatted this way.

it takes some getting used to, but after a while, you prefer it.

When people who don't live in my home take it upon themselves to invite other people that we don't really know TO my home without asking me if it's okay first. Then, don't put me on the spot after you've already told that person they can come over!!! If I say no, i'll look like a jackass!!

Example:

FG: "hey lets all go back to T's house for a little bit.
Group: "okay cool."
FG: "Brandon, why don't you come over too, they live right around the corner... 'T', that's okay for Brandon to come too right?"

Me: mellow.gif sure, why not.

I hate it when people walking in front of me go really sloooooooow, and I can't get around them, like on the stairs. Slow walking is a pet peeve of mine; I mean, unless you are injured or really old, why not walk with a purpose? I'm not going for a stroll in the park, I am actually trying to get somewhere, like most of us. The sun is beating down on us and it's 94 degrees, so move!

Also groups who stand in doorways and the middle of hallways talking. Find a nook, or stand by the wall - there are people trying to get through! And in the cafeteria, when you see someone carrying a heay tray filled with plates and glasses - move out of the way! it seems like they deliberately walk in my path, I swear.

I'm going out of town next weekend (to see the LD boy - woo!) and I've hired a cat sitter to come in and feed my cats for the 2 days I'm gone. We scheduled a meeting today for 2 pm so she could meet my cats and see where I put the food, etc. She called around noon today to confirm our meeting and asked if she could reschedule for 3 pm today. I explained that I had some place to be this afternoon and I'd prefer it if she arrived at 2. It's 2:45 and she still hasn't shown up. This does not make me happy in the least. I've been sitting here, waiting for her for nearly an hour and I'm beginning to get pissed off. If it wasn't such short notice, I'd call her up and tell her that I don't want to use her services any more. I mean, she seems like a nice enough lady, but I think it's just a bad business practice to make your clients wait for you and not meet their time needs. Grrr, dammit. She better get here soon.

Ok, another complaint from me, this one about my upstairs neighbors. I'm having an issue with them regarding the laundry room. I've lived in my current apartment for about a year & a half. I share the laundry room, which has only 1 washer and dryer, with 3 other families. There's a fourth family in my building, but they always take their clothes to the laundromat and never use the building facilities. Almost every time I go to the laundry room to do laundry, I find that my upstairs neighbors have left clothes in either the washer or dryer. My upstairs neighbors are a family with kids, so they do laundry more often than I do, but that still doesn't excuse the forgetfulness. Last year, for example, I wanted to do laundry on a Friday night so I could have my weekend free, but when I went to the laundry room, I found my upstairs neighbors had left their clothes in. (I can always tell when it's theirs because there's lots of little kids' clothes in the mix, and no one else in the building has little kids.) I didn't want to be rude and take their clothes out, so I waited until Saturday morning. When I checked the laundry room again, their clothes were still in the machine, cold, completely dry...they'd left them in there all night.

That was the only time they left them over night (that *I* know of, anyway), but I've also found many times that they've left their clothes in the machines for several hours. And it's always the wife who does laundry. She'll wash them in the morning and leave them sitting in the machines all day, so I can't do laundry at all unless I remove her clothes from the machines. Which, I have to admit, I've now done a couple of times. I know she doesn't like it when I take her clothes out, but I don't want to wait all weekend to get my laundry done just because she forgot to take her clothes out of the machines. And it's not like she's a single mom, raising two little kids on her own. She's got a husband who could help her with the laundry, but I never see him doing shit with it. She's always the one who comes down to get the clothes out.

Anyway, today was one of those days. They'd left their clothes in the dryer and I took them out. They hadn't left a laundry basket in the laundry room, so I had no place to put their clothes but on top of the machines. While I was taking my clothes out of the dryer, the wife came down to get her clothes and was obviously mad that I'd put them on top of the machine. I apologized but stood my ground and explained that I was tired of their habit of leaving their clothes in the machine. That didn't fly with her and she kept whining about me taking her clothes out of the machine. I again explained that I time my laundry cycles and take my clothes out in a timely manner; I don't leave them sitting there for hours or overnight. She was still mad and said, "see what happens to your clothes," and then stomped out of the laundry room and went upstairs.

A few minutes later, her husband came downstairs to threaten me. He openly yelled at me, pointed his finger and said several times, "don't touch our clothes again," implying an "or else." I don't think he really knew what the "or else" would be, but much like his wife, he added that if I touched their laundry, "see what happens to your clothes." I let him know that if he touched my laundry, I'd call the building manager. He replied by saying that he'd do the same thing if I touched his (which gave me an inner chuckle - as if this wanker ever does laundry!).

Anyway, I've called and left a message with the building manager, making a complaint about the husband's threat and the fact that this family has a habit of not removing their laundry in a timely manner. If need be, I also have further complaints at the ready, as this is one of those couples with children who think many of their rude actions are excused because they have kids. They leave their kids' toys and strollers all over the building, and have a pile of their kids' toys underneath my bedroom window, which faces the carport area behind our building where we all park our cars. Most other tenants of the building put stuff that they can't fit in their storage spaces behind their cars in the carport area. If you don't back your car all the way into your parking space, there's room behind your car to store a few things, which most of us do. And it would be a perfect place for the kids to put their toys, rather than under my bedroom window. But they can't fit their toys behind the family car because mom & dad drive one of those ginormous Jeep SUVs (competing in size with the Hummer) which takes up all the room in their parking space.

Now, I don't really have a problem with the kids leaving their toys under my bedroom window, except for the fact that the kids usually don't put their toys flush against the wall of the building (under my window), so the toys are often hanging out a little too far in the turnout space behind the building which we use to turn our cars around in. I'm constantly afraid that I'm going to run over a little kid bike or Big Wheel toy because they didn't put them away neatly. ...Much like their parents have an issue with taking the laundry out on time. They were obviously not taught to think about other people around them, and they're not teaching their kids about it either.

Ok, enough ranting. Thanks for reading, if you made it all the way through. I'm feeling a little less pissed off now.

I live in a condo with 2 sets of washer/dryers for 8 units, so I totally understand your pain. At least at your place, you can tell whose laundry it is. I've gone both ways- taking the laundry out and putting it on top as well as waiting until they remove it. However, since you're able to tell whose laundry it is, what about simply knocking on their door when they leave their stuff there and you need to do laundry? I don't know how feasible that is now that things have escalated, but maybe in the future? I hope your building manager can set some definite rules to the effect of "if you leave your laundry, your fellow tennants have the right to move it." As long as you're not throwing it on the floor, I don't see the problem.
thirtiesgirl
My thinking is, why should I have to go all the way upstairs and knock on their door to ask them to remove their laundry? They're adults, they should know how to function in an apartment building with other people. The other issue is that the manager of this building doesn't take good care of it. He doesn't come around to check up on the building, so he doesn't see the things that go on around here. On the one hand, it's good, because he doesn't raise rents. But on the other hand, it's bad because of some of the things the neighbors do.

For example, last year, my next door neighbor on the ground floor moved an old bookcase out of her apartment and left it sitting on her side stoop for 6 months. It nearly blocked the way for me to get to our trash bin at the back of the building. I talked to the neighbor about it once, but she didn't seem too concerned about finding someone to haul it away, and there it sat for 6 months, until it somehow ended up in our trash bin behind the building. The manager never said or did anything. A few months later, she moved her old dining room table and chairs out to the side stoop, which completely blocked my way to the trash bin (I had to go around the building on the other side to get to it). The table and chairs probably would have sat there for 6 months, too, if I hadn't called the manager to complain.

So I don't complain about the neighbors' kids leaving their toys around, and I hated to complain about the laundry issue. I don't want our rents to go up (I don't feel this place is worth what I'm paying for it now)...but at the same time, I can only handle adults acting like kids for so long.

cob: the bust subscription department not being able to get their shit together. they confirmed in may that they have my new/current address, but i have so far had to buy every issue on the newsstand. now they're trying to tell me that the post office, which has managed to get all the rest of my subscriptions to me on time at the new address, told them my address had been changed back to the previous one. except my issues haven't shown up there either, and after telling me a couple weeks ago that they'd mail the current issue to me, they are now telling me that it will be six to eight weeks before i get my "back issue". fuck you dumb bitches, it's the current issue, that has been on the newsstand for two weeks now. send one of your interns trotting down to the local barnes or borders, stuff it in an envelope, and it will be here in three to five days, how fucking hard is that?! i told them last week to have either the magazine or a check for the full amount of my subscription in my mailbox by wednesday. grrr, i'm just getting so damn frustrated with having to go out and buy it or wait for them to send it all the fucking time! i think i got maybe three of the six issues from last year's subscription actually on time and in my mailbox, you know, the way a subscription's supposed to work?

anti-cob: one of my favorite blogs was running a drawing for subscriptions to bitch during the most recent 'holy shit bitch is out of money and we might have to close!' plea for cash, and i won one, yay! i'm going to see if my local library will take a matching subscription. i've been wanting to give them one to bust, but fuck that shit. debbie can just write another book.

COB: not being able to get my packages when I want them. I live in a dorm community and we can only pick up packages until 5 pm on weekdays, and not on the weekends. This is really inconvenient as I'm not usually home until about 5 pm. The RA's are there until 10 pm and on the weekends, but because of some insane and pointless regulation they won't give out our packages after 5 pm - even if I can see the box on the shelf right behind them they won't give it to me. I would have the packages delivered to my door, but they don't allow that. I learned all of this the hard way when I paid over $20 for next-day shipping because I needed a textbook right away, and they wouldn't give it to me on a Saturday - I was livid! Does anyone know if there is a federal reglation or something that keeps them from withholding my packages? I did pay for them after all.

Also, there is no mailbox for outgoing mail - so I have to give it to an RA, and I really hate this because sometimes there's no one at the desk to give it to, and I'm kind of picky about my privacy anyow. I have to go off campus to find a mailbox. Whew - sorry for the long rant! I just think getting and sending mail should be easier than this.

Also, I'm totally with you on the bicycle thing - no one here stops for pedestrians or bicyclists at the crosswalks, and I saw a cyclist get hit by a car in front of my own eyes the other day - right across the street from me! It scared the shit out of me, but he turned out to be okay (just shaken up).

I don't think that's any law, olivarria- sounds like the usual, stupid arbitrary college rules. I never had anything like that where I went to school. Do you know/trust anyone who lives off campus who you can have it delivered to? Or, I forget, do you work somewhere you could have stuff delivered?

COB: our dorm laundry facilities. They are NEVER cleaned by anyone, so there are pubic hair and lint all over the tops of the washers, sometimes worse. No one cleans out the lint trays. It is so disgusting. There was a washing machine that had finished it's cycle a while ago, but it had been 10 minutes and no one had come to empty it, and all the others were broken or in use, so I started taking out his laundry to set on top of the (clean) counter. At this point I was impatient because I had already tried another laundry room and another machine, and had to move my clothes twice. The clothes' owner walked in as I was removing them and he looked upset. Because I am very hair- and germ-phobic, I'm going to a nice clean laundry facility off-campus from now on. When i pay to use a laundry facility, I totally expect it to be cleaned and maintained.

Because of all the issues I've posted about here regarding my dorms: the (lack of) privacy aspect, laundry, not being able to get my packages without there being a hassle, and the general atmosphere here (mostly 18-20 year-olds), I'm moving off campus in January. I'm 25, and should have know I would be miserable here, but I wanted to try it. The age thing makes a huge difference - and people just out of high school are my least favorite age group, to be honest. i was totally obnoxious at that age. I just want to get through this semester so I can get out of here.

But anyway, what do you think - was that bad laundry etiquette, or was I right to remove his clothes?
dj-bizmonkey
maybe 10 minutes was too short of time to wait, but he still didn't need to shoot you dirty looks. if you are using public laundry facilities, you should expect and understand that these things happen. your dorm situation sounds awful. i'm 26, in grad school and i'd rather shoot myself in the foot than live in the dorms again, though it was a blast when i was 18 and had minimal responsibilities.

just cuz you take noises and throw them together then put together a power point of crappy art in a way that is aesthically unappealing does not make you profound or deep or talented. Guess what? YOUR ART SUCKS!!!

screaming, heaving and making strange noises on the phone is not interesting and when I offer you some candy you have alot of nerve to look at me like that. Guess what ?Your "art" sucks and you are a total asshole.

Get back to me when you actually have something to say with a quality piece of performance art

We may not be good, but at least we are interesting, entertaining, and short and to the point (cuz we actually have one!) oH and we don't take ourselves too seriously. Maybe you should try that. Have drink, and eat some sugar.

and when I show up to a performance early as requested I expect that the sound man has a list of the order of performers as well as their stage needs. This should be the same order as listed in the program and on the website.I also expect that the shit I need is ready for me before I take the stage.

Then you get it, but you try to cut it off with scissors and it sticks to the scissors and gets wrapped round. Then, you pull it off, but the end of the piece snaps back and tapes to the underside of itself and you've got to do some more peeling. YOU'RE in a hurry. YOU'VE just cut your fingernails short!!?? AAARHH!

anti-cob: writing an angry letter lambasting their inaction & demanding a cleaning crew, and cc'ing it to my realtor

this all relates to the same person:
- we are playing a drinking game, but the person to my right doesn't think it's proper to grab my boob (drunken simon says..."touch the person to your left's chest", I am the only girl sitting between two boys). Please do not put his hand on my breast, I will slap you.
- do not say "you're a girl so you don't matter", or any words to that effect.
- why do you feel the need to change the girls settings to pink on the website? a simple list would have sufficed
- we are a COMMITTEE. Please ask the other four members before you make any massive decisions
- do not tell me to "man up". I am not as physically strong as you, nor am I as fit. I merely pointed out that your drill-sergeant attitude puts girls off coming to circuit training (it puts the boys off too, actually)
- just because I have short hair, does not mean I am a lesbian. This does not give you the right to comment on my sexuality, physical attractiveness or relationship status. Please do not hug me and attempt to kiss my neck.
- please don't encourage your boys to make rape jokes, violence against women jokes, homophobic jokes, sexist jokes, racist jokes... it is NOT funny.
