    I had to go to the post office to deal with the official yearly sending of bureaucratic filings.
    The usual experience of having to spend a lot of time doing nothing while other people also do nothing and employees apparently do nothing has now been upgraded.
    In the ‘old days’ one just tore off a little paper with a number off a little ticket dispenser device that stood on a wannabe microphone stand, sat down on a back-destroying chair and waited for one's number to be called, trying to stay awake in a room designed to be more soporipherous than double History of Magic with Professor Binns. Now it has been compounded with first having to deal with a sort of ATM-wannabe device that prints out little tickets with numbers and and letters on them and the old dreadful waiting is worsened by having to keep track of what category of sender one has been assigned. AA12 can be followed by AB 13 and then CC 54 and so on.

    *sigh*

    I've had too many meetings lately ... sometimes I sort of miss the days when I only worked a couple hours a day, and only had to join maybe two meetings a week (and where I was a silent participant rather than a presenter)

    Syn: Sex isn't a conquest outside of diseased worldview. A worldview presumed upon other people selectively, as the case is here, as a rhetorical weapon. It's a type of crappy dialogue bullying.

    C'mon, Mary, a combination of the Peter principle and the Dilbert principle will eventually kick in and deposit you in a safe haven.

    I checked my message totals in all the serial threads and I'm hovering between 8-12% of each. :(

    Although surprisingly I post about as much in the raves thread as I do in the rants thread.

    Mouse over your small avarar next to the avatar of the thread starter. You will see you post count for that thread. Compare it to the total post count of the thread. :)

    Oh, you both show me anyone, who has never said something about a person, which shouldn't be said to that person's face. Including you both.
    Everyone has at some point said something about their spouse, ther GF/BF, their friends, parents, sister, brother, high school teacher, whatever, which they'd be uncomfortable saying in their face.
    And most of the time you love these people (maybe not your high school teacher, but well).


    That's definitely biased perception.
    I'll need to think hard to get the 5 last ocassions together, where I said something sexual, because that's not not happening to me that often :lol:.


    It might also be that you're not reading me right ;).

    I am wondering: did you feel usefull in more than half of them? (I used to spend 6 to 8 hours in meeting a day, receiving like 50 mails a day, etc... to the point that it all felt nonsense to me :crazyeye: The only time I was actually "producing" stuff was when I isolated myself in front of a salad at lunch time... salad being eaten infront of my laptop ofc :wallbash:)

    on topic: why people are ranting here instead of lynching themselves in NOTW forum? :dunno:

    Perhaps I've been here too long; what is NOTW? Related to total War?
