*screams*

Having to argue with my net provider not just one day but for 5 days to get things fixed, get lies fixed and then get the net that was never suppose to be interrupted gets done so for 2 days, find out they shouldn have done half of what they did to change it then trying to see what they are going to do to make up for there mistake and get hung up on, redirected, promised to call back and then they act like I should just be dealing with them all day long and have no other life.  (thanks AT&T)

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Our Coaches are being idiots. In the B-team game, they're suppost to get as many people in, but I only got 4 plays, while a guy who just joined, we're halfway done, and got pads YESTERDAY, who isn't that great, and is only first year, got to play the whole game! Also, in practice, when I face off against the Starting Tight End for A-team, I regularly beat him, but no changes occur. The only way he even slowed me was by grabbing my arm after I got past him, and punching me in the back, right where the pads aren't. In fact, there are a bunch of B-team players who are much better than A-team, but no changes. In practice, the B-team was even beating the A-team, yet how many changes? That's right, none!

"You looked a bit stunned when I told you what I pulled you over for"
Well, yeah! You pulled me over for not stopping at a stop sign before I turned right, when I did. Even your little cam shows my rear bumpear going up, indicating my stop. Then you proceed to argue for it even after I explained that you probably thought you saw me roll through it an I was not going to argue with you there (The place to argue is court).

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Gave Resident Evil 6 a spin today, unfortunately.

First 15 minutes are QTEs, Interactive Cutscenes and a bit of combat (kicking is more effective than shooting the zombies. 3 kicks > 6-8 bullets). Leon crashed a helicopter into a train, kept flying it and then crashed it through two buildings. He emerged unscathed.

Why? Resident Evil is not an action mov- Oh wait. That's why. Thanks, Capcom, for making this game more like the movies and not the other way around. Good thing I took my fiance's advice and Redbox'd this game instead of pre-ordering it.

Not so much a vent, but a "Karma, thou art a completely fair biscuit."

Several months ago, get trainwreck drunk.  Friends take care of me.  All is well by the next morning.

Tonight, have a dinner party at my place.  Some people have way too much to drink.  Get to be the one of the (mostly) sober people taking care of the weepy drunks.

Don't complain a bit because I WAS JUST THERE.  *sigh...*

Unrelated: I just denied a player access to a game due to their utter lack of understanding of all things grammar. I then get told off by said player. Not a single punctuation in their rant about how I'm in the wrong. >______________<

Re: The Nothing but Vents, Vents, and MORE VENTS Thread
Look...I appreciate the fact that you think this is a good story that you want to tell.  But if you're going to ask my opinion of your script...and then argue with me over the majority of the points where I said, 'Okay...this is a problem and the people you're trying to sell this script to will have issues with it,' then I can't help but wonder why you wanted my feedback in the first place.

I'm not invested in this story AT ALL.  If they say yes, great.  I'm happy for you.  If they say no, I'm not out anything.  The extent of my personal involvement in this was saying, "Okay...don't bother pitching your idea to this person, he has no say in the matter.  This guy would be a better choice...but if you can get HER to sign off on it, you're set, because the company president isn't going to argue that much with his daughter."  Well, that, and having read through your script.

The problem is, it's like every other show I've seen you do.  It's got the potential to be something really awesome...if you would take some time and polish it a bit.  I realize you want to make a big impression on people and convince them that you can do these awesome shows...you're better off doing a REALLY GOOD small show several times, and working your way up, than you are doing a really slipshod large-scale production where only about half of your stuff works reliably.

But, what do I know?  I've only been working in entertainment for half your lifetime.  What possible insight could I have into how it works?

Re: Player
I work back to back 10 hour shifts, do my best to convince my boss we need MORE people or our state ratios are beyond off.

What happens? I get sent home with 28 hours already to save the OT till later in the week and the rest of the teachers are left with nearly double their load.

What was the point?

Re: Job from the Great Dark Pit of Despair
I really hate my job.  No, it goes beyond hate into deep loathing.  Apparently we must suffer any inconvenience such as inhaling chemicals because to complain results in being told all our jobs will be taken away.  We must work a horrendous schedule and our pay is cut (apparently all legally, too, thanks a lot government for looking out for the taxpayer/human being).   There's a fatal accident on the toll road I am forced to take (to save an hour's travel time) EVERY DAY.  I know I'll be killed or disabled by this job, but the need to eat and live under a roof compels me to stay.

And the future just looks like an ice floe with my name on it if I should survive to retire.

Re: Job from the Great Dark Pit of Despair
A minor vent, but...

Why must Coke machines hate me? I never have problems with Pepsi machines, unless they're plain empty, but Coke machines hate me. And, unfortunately, that's all the local store has sitting outside. So, I was looking at the prices earlier and realised it was cheaper, and colder really, so another plus, in the machine. 1.69 inside, 1.50 outside, obvious choice. So, I put in my dollar bill, and dig out a couple quarters and put those in. But it doesn't read the quarters. Try to get my money back, that doesn't work either. So, my Coke cost 2.00, and I was feeling quite a bit of frustration...which I couldn't really vent at the time, because there were children present, and I try to avoid that.

Thank you, RPoL, for having this nice thread in which to complain about random life events. It's great stress relief.

I really hate plumbing. That and the person who built the vanity in the bathroom with a door that can't open because they put the baseboard heating directly in front of it.  Who does that!? Nice job genius. On the upside, I did unclog 2 drains which probably saved me about $300.

Re: Job from the Great Dark Pit of Despair
Just spent 4 hours writing up a report, ensuring that I covered everything required, the deadline was Monday night (US time), it's 2am in the UK (where I am), and I hit save. I then go to send the e-mail with the report in...

No document file anywhere. Checked the auto-backups, checked the Temp files, nada, it never existed, according to my computer.

Fruit you computer, you git. Now I won't even get a decent night's sleep because I'll have this mulling around in my head, since I'll have to rewrite the entire thing (and I know it won't be nearly as good this time) after work tomorrow evening.
