    My queen "B" matriarch cat just stole a chicken leg off my plate in the time it took me look away to set the TV show. I didn't even hear her do it. I want to be pissed , but those boss sneak skills impressed the hell out of me. She'd make a great Khajiit.

    You clearly do not understand the realities of cats. Just because she decided not to share her chicken leg with a lowly minion does not mean that she stole it.

    New rant thread, yay!

    So I have something to contribute: CKII has really suffered from reduced performance after RoI came out months ago. After about half a century in, it will always start getting slower and slower until it comes to a crawl by a century and a half. The devs haven't done much to alleviate this either. Given how low-end my PC is, this is disappointing.

    You're lucky the reminder was so gentle. Just not allowing you to have a chicken leg. It could have been far worse.

    i still don't have enough cash to renew my passport, i spent da monies for hairdresser and lingerie.

    So i don't have 9 to 5 job yet and lessons i give are only thrice per week. And i got hyperactivity and i'm unemployed. I will apply for the closest mall again and hope they don't notice my IQ which is appereantly thrusting through my pants and my blouse.

    I hope this is a rant.

    So I had a pretty good gig running that has gone haywire.

    Full context: Leaving work is my favorite part of my weekday. On a per day basis, it's the longest period of time between when I have to be back at a work function.

    The formal schedule for my office is 7:00 - 16:30. Operational facilities and such run that, with a 30 minute lunch at 12:00. Sometimes they go on 10 hour schedules, like 6:00 - 16:30 or even earlier, at certain parts of the year (e.g. summer time when it is hot outside and when workers are outside, etc), or some things have rotating shifts, etc. We "match" their normal schedule.

    But we're in an office environment, and you don't have to match the exact operational facility schedule. A lot of people do though, partly out of habit.

    Now, I show up ~7:56 +/- 3 minutes (99% confidence interval, unless something is scheduled) and leave at 17:00. I eat my lunch in 5 minutes at my cubicle so I don't really take it out of my time. Other people eat lunch at their offices or cubes too (no one leaves for 30 minutes and comes back), some may take a half hour or some eat quickly and don't mind working 9.5 hours instead. I don't care and I don't know; besides, most people aren't chugging away all day (talk to others, surf the internet, surf phone, whatever throughout the day) so who cares if they call it lunch or whatever. Either way, most people (this isn't a ton, <20 for context) leave at 16:30.

    Suddenly this week people are deciding to apparently go crazy with their schedules. People are just leaving at like 17:15. Now, since I show up later than these people, I can't really justify leaving before they do (and I'm certainly not in any position to do so, in terms of work performed or years here or whatever. I'm new.)

    So now I gotta sit around and wait for these people to leave before I can leave, and I'm 80% sure that 75% of them aren't just showing up significantly later. They're showing up at like 7:15 and just leaving at 17:15 for no apparent reason.

    I just want to leave work.
