Rant: I ate something bad and it went straight through me.
I could be wrong, but I thought it was about 2 years ago.
I can't really :/
Well, better than if it stayed inside...
I disagree. If a manager delegates the task, it is his responsibility to review them prior to publication. You delegate the task, not the responsibility.
Second rule of management. Always make sure you dodge being delegated writing the meeting notes. (yeah, not always possible)
Third rule of management : If the delegated person/s doesn't know how/try to dodge to write the meeting notes delegate a second team to fetch the manual for the first team
Delivery company genuinely offered "give the wrong address" as advice when I asked if there was a way to fix them sending their drivers to the alleyway instead of the street when I make orders.
It is a problem unique to them and no other company or service so I know the issue is on their end.
So if you tell them to go somewhere else they'll actually knock on/ring your front door?
Their bright idea was to put the wrong address to trick their GPS, and then put my real address in the delivery notes.
Their best minds are on the case, lads.
They could just put your real address in the delivery notes and the GPS as well… but that'd be too complicated.
The only way to make this more difficult is to involve state-run bureacucracy.
Why don't they just learn to read street signs and house numbers?
The invention of the GPS made many things possible, including the hobby of geocaching (something my first NaNoWriMo writing buddy is into), but it's also resulted in making an awful lot of people stupidly map-illiterate.
My latest rant: The $100 break on my electricity bill didn't go through. I was doing my usual monthly "copy your rent notation and email it to the housing authority to prove you paid your rent so you maintain eligibility for the subsidy" thing when I realized that the amount was a hell of a lot higher than it should have been. So I subtracted $100 from it and arrived at the amount I should have had to pay for the electricity bill.
The manager, when I called to complain at him, looked into it and said they'd put the discount into the system two days after the system did the automatic withdrawal of funds for my rent/electricity. He assured me that I'd get credited for it next month.
Which would have been nice to know before committing to several other purchases made in the last couple of days.
Nasty surprise #3. It looks like I owe an additional $1,000+ in taxes.
My buddy down the street owed an additional $2,000.
Then he doesn't belong in senior management. IMO.
My cat just walked into my room and bit my foot for no reason. Ow.
It's one way they show they love you!
It does say right there that their best minds are on the case.
She had a reason. However, she doesn't feel there's any reason to tell you her reason. To her it was a reasonable reason, and that's all a human ever needs to know.
(Maddy bit my toe one time, but I rationalized it that because it was June 25, 2008, she did it to celebrate her first birthday)
I recently saw a graffito on a wall that read (translated): ‘Don't grow up, it's a trap!’
I have also read that maturity is defined as the ability to postpone pleasure.
Today I preferred to answer a customer's email in detail rather than watch Megas XLR (the same episode will be on again in a few hours).
What is going on with me?
You already know the answer: you are growing up.
Is an Argentinian not entitled to the sweat of his anime?
Megas XLR is not anime, you Flaaming nincompoop.
*falls down to knees* Please tell me this isn't true.
