[Rant] Minor Rant III: For a Few Hollers More

Look, a teacher looking that hot is an undue distraction and it's just unfair!
True story: One of my history professors was ludicrously attractive. She was fresh out of grad school (so not that much older than us) and gorgeous. Obviously, she was still a professional and deserved to be treated with every ounce of respect that was afforded to other faculty. This didn't deter my classmate Sam. Oh no, he decided that she was "too fucking hot" to be a real professor. He started trying to flirt with her day one... much to the dismay of all of us who had to watch. No amount of us telling him to stop being an asshole would dissuade him. The final straw came when he finished a test, turned in the scantron, and then handed her a note telling her that "Beautiful women like you should smile more."

His ass was out of the class and on probation the very next day. Of course he tried to tell us he was all the victim of her being too uptight. But hey, what would you expect a douchebag say?

Pretty sure he dropped out a few months later.

So, suddenly three of my neighbors are flying these big ass Canadian flags on their front lawns. I'm confused by this because that's just not something I'm used to. That's usually something I identify as a primarily south of the border thing to do, no offense 'Mericans.

I do a little digging and there's apparently some old dude that's been planting flags on people's lawns in Edmonton and area for years as long as they've proven to him that they're generous charity givers. Suddenly I'm even more pissed off. You give to charity then go out of your way to show off that you give to charity? Fuck you. FUUUUCK YOU.

At a memorial service for one of my wife’s best friends who died Saturday. I don’t know anyone and it’s boring as shit. I thought she was crazy as a fucking loon but I’m here to support my wife.

Barbecue is good, though.

There was a pearl Cadillac STS I would sometimes see near where I used to live with the license plate I TITHE, made me feel about the same.

They probably wanted to avoid the confusion of “RIC FLAIR ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL”

Fans: “...admitted what? What did he say to them?”

One of my colleagues in grad school (a couple years younger than me) experienced a creepier version of that when she was a TA. This was one of the classes where there were 70-80 students taught by a professor and one TA. Anyways, there was this one asshat who hated the idea of learning from a socially liberal woman. You sometimes get ultra-conservative young men at a place like Texas A&M. One day the professor was absent and my friend proctored a midterm exam. That's when the class tends to empty out halfway through because students who finish early get to leave. Eventually the only people remaining were my friend and the douchecanoe. He turned in his paper and said, "it's just the two of us here. Who knows what could happen?" Then he left.

That guy was GONE after a week. Don't know what happened to him but he never came back.

Finally home. Everyone was drunk but me. Oh well. And I'm a master of timing. I paid off our tab - $50 after tip - and then no more than 20 minutes later a guy paid off everyone's tabs. Damn it.

Ugh, I ate some chicken that I thought was ok.



It was not.



Had to leave work half way through the day and barely made it the 40 minutes home on the rocky skytrain before I had to go meet Ralph. I've had a bit of a nap and am now feeling almost like a person again.

Remember my colonoscopy not too long ago? Yeah, just got the bills in. AFTER insurance, I owe like $2000. Luckily I have a decent sized HSA, but this will eat most of it. And my HSA is the ONLY reason this is a minor rant. It's also how I found out my deductible doubled this year from $1500 to $3000.

But remember, decent healthcare is anathema to the USA and commie socialist propaganda. Let the market free and everything will be better, cheaper, and faster.
My father had a colonoscopy a few weeks ago and it cost him a whole €100 including the junk you need to drink first.

Having to explain to a guest that their bill is screwed up because another front desk person didn't do their job is embarrassing and unacceptable. WE as a whole failed, even though I was not the one assigned the task.

So I’ve decided that once Yoshi passes, I’m out. This isn’t an “ oh I can’t live without him” thing, and it isn’t an “I don’t have anything to live for” thing. i’m not seeking attention. It’s just a decision I’ve made. And I wanted to say it somewhere. So let me rant. Thanks.
literally what happened with our last dog Pepper. when he died I was like, its nice to not have to worry about a furry asshole when we want to go on vacation. however we ended up with the current fat asshole so what the hell do I know.

DA SMASH

The AGM is gonna have an apoplectic stroke in the morning, and I'm afraid of catching the backlash. So many mistakes over the weekend. So many times people should know better. What good are policies if no one bothers to follow them? And then *I'm* the one catching hell for it because I do, and won't go for 'the last girl said it was okay.' Well, she was WRONG, and I'm not going to risk my job for you.

You have my sympathies. I know what that's like.


However, can I make a joke about how I feared you were delivering bad news about our Yoshimickster?

At work we recently got a letter from HR. They have apparently been doing vacation accruals incorrectly. Guess which direction everyone's amounts went. I lost 19 hours. My old manager (Senior Director) lost around 60 hours.

He asked them in a meeting about it and this was the exchange.

Him: So what if I am disputing this recalculation?
HR: Well, bring us the supporting documentation and we'll go over it.
Him: What if I don't HAVE documentation? What if I just expected HR to do their jobs correctly?
HR: ...
