    Yeah...unfortunately this is the 3rd one i've seen (the one i saw before who actually made an effort left) but you are right, i might just move surgery's, i can't live with feeling like i'm going to be sick/faint for 17 weeks.

    Youtube blocking the ability to rip/download HD versions of videos. Tried several plugins that were working before as well as Jdownloader... to no avail. I guess it's just a matter of time before JD dev team crack this one again, but dammit it's annoying.

    Not serious enough for "fucked day" but...

    I've practically moved to Cincinnati for my girlfriend's residency at Cincy Children's last week but have to wrap things up with my current job. I'm starting a new job on July 22nd so I was planning on putting in my two week notice today so that I could wrap up on July 17th, thus giving me time to drive the 2% of my things left here in Memphis up to Cincy and then head home to St. Louis to be with friends and family for my birthday. I got back from vacation Monday and saw an email invite for a 1:1 coaching session with my exec leader at 3pm and thought "Great, I'll give it to him then."

    He calls at 3 and I already have my notice typed up and signed with emails ready to go to him and HR when after exchanging pleasantries... he asks if we can reschedule because the previous manager he had a session with before mine went over their time and then had him working on something for them that "couldn't wait."

    So, I now have to wait over 40 hours (because we're closed tomorrow) to give this notice at 9am on Friday. UGH. I'm still asking for the 17th since he delayed this. Super annoying.

    When your condo tower strata decides that hell, it's been 10yrs...time for a complete building repair and paint job. So now the $4000 I had set aside for Hawaii and a full back piece tattoo is now sitting at about $350! Awesome!

    I pointed out - politely - that the people in the big city most likely lived in small apartments and walk / take public transit everywhere, while people in that rural area have entire houses for just a couple people and will drive their gas-guzzling pickup around by themselves to go 15 miles to the store, meaning the city dwellers quite possibly have a much lower carbon footprint. And that I've never seen anyone in a big city with a brush pile burning for days on end.

    He unfriended me.

    Oh well.

    I was supposed to be leaving Denver at 4:30 to LAX this afternoon with my buddy for the potentially-last-ever show by The Ghost Inside tomorrow night and got a text from SWA that our flight was canceled. I confirmed online and was able to get onto the 7:45pm flight but couldn't get hold of him and of course the flight filled up. He did the AirBNB reservation and has the info so he's kind of critical to this trip. I called Southwest and they confirmed the 4:30 flight which is currently en route from DEN to Milwaukee and then was supposed to fly back from MKE to DEN before heading to LAX is in fact canceled and she said it was due to "weather issues."

    Milwaukee: 78 F currently, high of 85 F with 0% chance of rain
    Denver: 89 F currently, high of 94 F, 20% chance of rain
    LA: 75 F currently, high of 84 F, 0% chance of rain

    Yeah, I guess all this perfect weather is just too much for the pilots to handle. What the FUCK?

    Bought a new TV last night. Woke up to a cancellation notice. Thanks, Best Buy.

    I know sites aren't legally obligated to honor a price if they fuck it up on their site, but they should anyway when they've got that much money. Oh well. Guess customer service is lost on some people.

    Having worked in the electronics area of a big box store, not Best Buy but a competitor, my advice is to NEVER trust the online stock if it says Pick Me Up Today! Call the store, make the kid walk back to where they keep the shit, visually verify that it is there for you. Electronics, especially tvs, are perpetually short stocked from the manufacturers. You'll get two, maybe three shipments of general stock tvs from spring into early summer, and that's it. Everything else will be held in reserve until the holiday months which is pure shit and a stock nightmare.

    It was like 103 degrees today, gonna be about the same tomorrow, and people just want to STAND OUTSIDE IN THE SUN AND SHOOT THE SHIT LIKE WE AIN’T UNDER HEAT ADVISORY. Nah, I’m cool sweating bullets while I listen to you tell me what you think about the new Top Gun trailer. Riveting. That’s totally what I came here for, thank you.

    Fuckin’...if we have to stand and make small talk and banter can we please at least not do it with the afternoon sun over our heads? Go under some shade? Anything?? Why are we doing this?

    I didn't do pickup though; I did delivery. Because I knew pickup would be bad for EXACTLY that reason. But even then, people who ordered these for pickup were being turned away even though the set was in stock. Had nothing to do with availability. They wholesale canceled EVERY order for that SKU.

    Whatever, joke's on them. Gonna have a lot of purchases coming up for home theater gear and appliances, and now they are 100% off the list for all of it.

    Well what started as a little leak in my ceiling on Monday resulted in coming home Thursday to a massive crack in my ceiling and my floor/rug soaked...luckily i had let the tenant agency know as soon as i saw it Monday so my landlord was actually there when it happened and fixed the leak/tried to save my rug. Now i just have to wait for him to repair the ceiling (who knows when that might be), but i'm just happy it just landed on my rug, 3 months ago that area was my desk

    Also luckily you're renting. Don't want to think about what that would cost if it was your responsibility! Hope the weather isn't too bad while you're waiting.

    Yeah i am super lucky. No idea when it'll be fixed so i have had to just use duct tape to stop it getting worse for now. Also the leak was from a pipe in the flat above which has been fixed, so no need to worry about the weather...though it is VERY WARM!
