    By all means, take your hour-long lunch break and then show up with two bags of food to loudly eat them in a quiet room 5 feet from me.

    Not like your lunch break is meant for you to eat your lunch or anything.

    I was also wondering about that for quite some time. That's also the same exact case with Twitter.

    Thanks for letting me know, since there is a stance that they're both the same thing. But anyway, it's good to know even though I also got used to using the terms "Direct Message/DM" on Instagram and Twitter.

    I see what you mean, not just because of the way the time was blatantly misused, but also because I've been brought up to eat as quietly as possible, and even as far away from others as possible if given the chance, and that also went beyond schools and workplaces.

    I like that you brought this up, since this is a work-related type of gripe involving food/eating. My gripe concerning lunch is the fact that there are people that will not just openly ask what you're eating and put you on blast for what you're eating when it isn't even their business, but will also have the nerve to get way too close, stare at your food and then ask if you'd share it with them, or ask why you aren't sharing it with them.

    From having an upbringing that taught me not to discuss others' food, and taught me to also not look at it, it's very grating on me. I'll admit that I also used to think it was okay to ask for food to be shared until I saw it from the other way around, and well, I either forgot or just didn't listen, but even my parents were of the opinion that you don't ask for people to share their food, no matter how polite your requests are worded and sound. If anything, it is up to the other person to offer you some of their food instead, and that you might as well just mind your own business and let them eat in peace.

    But yeah. I never got this and even being offered food, as nice as it is, is something I'm still not used to.

    I'm not necessarily talking about food that's being originally offered/agreed/intended to be shared in advance. I'm talking about people that also always offer the rest of their food or some of their food because they can't finish it, which wasn't originally intended to be shared. As much as possible, I always try my best to never order more than I can finish.

    As for a non-work-related issue I have with the way food is sometimes offered, it's also hard for me to get used to have food being constantly offered to me at parties where I can also get the food myself. I've been told time and time again that's a part Filipino culture though, but all I could think of is, "If I wanted it, I would've gotten it already." to "I'm taking my time here. If anything I should pace myself properly as I'm eating, unless I want to get too full on gluttony and run the risk of getting heartburn. I also don't want everything on my plate all at once either. I might not want it now, but I probably might want it later on."

I might not want it now, but I probably might want it later on."
    I feel like I wasn't necessarily raised similarly in that regard, but I DID pick up that tendency on my own as I grew older. I generally don't like to eat around others if there isn't some kind of ambient noise going on, and I especially get bothered when a room is dead silent to the point that I can hear the other person chewing and swallowing. Even if they aren't being overly loud about it, it drives me nuuuts, so I think that flips back onto me and I feel like anyone near me would hear me eating, too. It's completely different in a restaurant setting or in a case where we're both eating, but in other cases it makes me feel like I'm being rude to the other person, even if they've expressed they don't mind. I mind, especially if they're the type of person I know wouldn't say anything if they COULD hear me eating.

    On that same topic of people hovering too close/asking for some of my food: There was a person I used to work with - she was generally very nice, but one thing I noticed that she liked to do was look over someone's food and literally just pick pieces off without asking first, without any pretense that would suggest they were okay with that. The time that really got to me was in the middle of our "Turn" period at work (two weeks in August where we flip every empty room on property to prepare for new residents, 60-80 hours per week, EXTREMELY stressful time). We'd had a ton of pizza delivered for everyone to eat on our break, so I'd gone into the office when it was my turn to get something to eat. Been busy all day, starving, ready to refuel and just sit in peace for a minute before I went back to work. She was working in the office the entire time just watching the front desk, so the food was actually available to her practically any time she wanted it. However, despite that, she waited until I came to get my own food after working all morning, and took it upon herself to pick pepperonis off my pizza while the plate was in my hand . After I hadn't eaten all morning, and WHOLE slices of it were available to her. I don't need to elaborate on how aggravated I was about that, heh, but it was definitely frustrating to say the least. "Look...I'm only going to ask this one time, but PLEASE don't do that again. There are whole boxes of pizza available, you don't need any of mine." We didn't talk so much after that, heh. I tried to be polite, absolutely, but when you're that drained after a week of day-long labor and lack of sleep, composure tends to erode slightly. ^^'

    Facebook is so fucking creepy.
    All this rheumatoid arthritis stuff is coming up in my feed. I got that diagnosis like 4 days ago and did NOT post anything about it on Facebook.
    I told @thelastdisciple and a couple of other people on messenger though.

    So it reads our messages to find out what we might buy, and God knows what else.

    Imagine the type of personality profile that could be compiled from your Facebook info, plus geolocations, plus all the info in your "private" messages. I bet the CIA would like to build a database like that.

    Privacy is officially over, it would seem.

    I’m trying to explain to an acquaintance that his use of the term NPC as a pejorative is playing into 4Chan-troll drift discourse, especially since he seems unaware that the term NPC is originally derived from geeky gamer/RPG stuff rerendered as “social commentary.” I don’t think he gets it, and now I’m starting to see why these nerd coded “passwords” are so effective

    Doesn't even need to be written down. A colleague and I were talking about houses in catering the other day, and one of the things we're talking about is how a dishwasher (or rather, lack thereof) wouldn't be a dealbreaker as long as a house looked like it could easily accommodate an installation, or at least a portable dishwasher.

    Five minutes later, he pulls his phone out to browse facebook (via Safari, no less...doesn't even have the app) and he's got all these ads for portable dishwashers. He has literally never talked about them or looked at them before.

    Oh, and I have Google Fi for my cell service (for now). You know how I get my voicemail? They have an automated speech-to-text algorithm that listens to it and sends me a text of the transcript. Yeah, Google is literally reading my voicemail. (Of which I get roughly two a year, both from some auto insurance scams, which is why I'm not personally bothered by it.)

    Tumblr's gone in full on censorship mode with all adult content today, but hate speech and nazis are still totally okay.

    i've been on tumblr for nine and a half years and i've spelled it that way for so long that the actual word "tumbler" looks wrong, to me. like my fingers try to avoid hitting the E in there haha

    also, some of the posts it flagged on my old nude self portrait tumblr are so tame (like, some of them are literally just my upper torso...or my back), and there are others where you can almost clearly see my junk that didn't get flagged. what a fucking joke.

    While i don't agree with removing the adult content on Tumblr my understanding is it was to tackle child porn on the site. From what i've heard, kids have been using the site to sext and otherwise share nudes publicly, and tumblr has been so fucking bad at trying (or lack there of) to moderate the site that once Apple removed the app from the store due to it they had no choice but to remove adult content whole sale it stop it.
    If they'd just moderate the site correctly to begin with this (and many MANY other problems on the site) wouldn't have be an issue...but they've pretty much just killed themselves for their own laziness...brilliant.

    I second this. My second account is expectedly stunted as of yesterday, however there's stuff that's flagged/removed for me on my main account that really shouldn't be according to the rules. Then again, I've made some test/protest posts that are still totally there, so whatever. It is a joke and at this point I'm just gonna continue treating it as such until I get bored. Which is probably already happening. Also, color me intrigued haha.

    I think the Apple thing is way more the reason. Kids aren't using tumblr, they're using snapchat and kik or whatever else is hip lol.

    I could be wrong, but from the few bits i heard from various podcasts that touched on it Apple removed the app because of the CP on the site, rather then just because of the adult content, though they may have just used the CP issue as a way to get them to remove adult stuff. Either way, CP was a major issue on the site.

    FedEx just fucked up two of my presents that will now go from being comfortably early to arriving after Christmas.

    And I just overfilled a fluid in my car and have no straws, tubing, basters, pumps, etc, which means I have to walk half an hour in this wonderful sub-freezing windchill to go buy something to get this shit out of the car.

    Merry fucking Christmas to me.

    If the phone is only the the price the tag says it is if it's activated in store with a new account, make it more obvious. Don't make me wait 25 minutes to find out. Also Best Buy why have 50 employees but only one able to do phone shit? Sent from my freshly cracked screen phone.

    I don't like the sound of this new year. 2019. Ridiculous! It sounds weird and fake.

    By the time I get used to the sound of this year it'll be almost over and then I'll have to go through this shit all over again.

    If talking about the oppression of half of the world is tiring to you, just imagine having to actually deal with sexism. You wouldn't last a week.

    People advocating for the equal treatment of everyone is not "nonsense". Dismissing the fight for equity sure is, though.

    We're in the longest government shutdown in history and we have "journalists" researching Mackenzie Bezos. FFS, a divorce isn't news. Maaaaaaaybe on a slow day when you're desperate for headlines. But holy fuck people, come on.

    Perhaps this is more in line with disappointments and feeling jaded more than anything. Anyway...

    Too many interests to keep up with, yet so little time and energy to do so. (Or even money for that matter.)

    I know it is what it is and I got to live with it and accept it though, but there is still something draining/jaded about it from time to time. At least it reminds me to not get too caught up and consumed with chasing possessions and experiences.

    I had an extra monthly metrocard expiring at the end of Feb, and I didn't want it to go to waste, so I offered it up on Facebook with the caveat that I wanted people who were in a situation where this wouldn't really help them and would just be a nice bit of extra cash to sit back and give people in a tighter situation a chance at it first.

    A friend of mine who is like, a disabled sex worker making their way through a post-FOSTA/SESTA world asked for it and I'm glad they checked in with me.

    But the second person who commented is a girl I know who lives in a studio apartment in the Financial District (meaning her rent is likely about 2k, maybe more) with a boyfriend whose parents are r i c h. She teaches yoga for a living, but doesn't work any sort of "Plan B" job to supplement her income. I understand that a person can be privileged and still have invisible financial hardship, but I also know that she could ask her boyfriend for a metrocard if she needed one and get it easily. I'm frankly kinda grossed out that she commented without at least acknowledging that like... other folks in harder situations should still chime in if they need it, but I can't say as much to her, so here I am, whining.

    This didn't really piss me off, but i've been having an issue with Paypal (long story short they took 2 payments so i was trying to get one back) they did refund me but in a lengthy email they ended it with "Thank you for being a valued customer of PayPal. Have a lovely day Jessica!"

    Really valued customer if they can't get my name right, not even the right gender...and my name was at the top of the email and on my account! Anyway the issue is sorted, this just made my laugh a bit.

    was Jessica possibly the name of the person who was corresponding with you, and there was a typo? maybe it was supposed to be,

    "Have a lovely day,
    Jessica"

    for example?

    Nope, he was called Steven and copy and pasted how it was typed.
    Again not really having a dig at the guy, just found it a bit funny (i get this ALOT. Been called Hayes as a first name, James, Jessica has happened multiple times, hell someone called me it over the phone once! Someone once even called me Juice! Guess people hate the name Jason...)

    Every year, for six and a half years in this line of work, I see the same trend: Electric bills will spike in the hottest months of summer and the coldest months of winter. Every year. And every year, people get mad at their apartment complex because of that. Even after someone comes and inspects every conceivable variable that would be affecting your bill and finds nothing out of the ordinary.

    Guess what? When it's really hot outside, your AC works harder to maintain a low temperature than it has to during more temperate months. When it's really cold outside, it has to work even harder to keep the apartment at a warm temperature. Both of these extremes use more power to maintain the temperature you want. In addition, when it's below freezing outside, your water heater has to work that much harder to heat up your water coming from the city water supply. Your apartment's utilities are 100% electric. More electricity = higher bill. How...how are you in college and not grasping this? We have checked every door seal. Every window. Every appliance and outlet. We have checked everything we can. The only variable left up to question here is how often YOU and your roommates use electricity and what YOU set your thermostat to. So what conclusion are you expecting me to come up with? That there's an "electricity leak" or something somewhere in your apartment? Just pure electricity dripping from a hidden bad outlet or something? Or do you think I get a cut of your electric bill if I just tell you there's nothing for us to fix? No. That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works.

    MY electric bill nearly doubled from last month because the temperature is fucking 30 degrees less than it was a month ago. My heater has to work harder to compensate for that. I choose to run my heater at a certain temperature because I'm willing to pay that little extra for warmth, and there's no one else to blame for that but myself. The same thing will happen in in any home in any climate as back and forth as ours. It's just how that process works. This shit isn't magic.

    But no, it's our fault, tho. Sorry that I personally used up so much of your apartment's electricity, I guess.

    My name is Branson, and no matter how many times I personally write my name down on something, or what it says on my driver's license, people will look directly at my name, then look at me, and go "Okay, Brandon, thanks."

    Do you...Do you think I spelled my own name wrong...?

    Try having the last name "Randazzo." People throw an extra "o" and even add an "s" or an "i" to it. I dunno how that happens.

    Haha, I know exaaactly what you mean. Last name is Wiles, and it’s pronounced exactly like the word “wiles.” But I still get Wilds, Wills, Willies, Willis, all kinds of pronunciations.

Even after someone comes and inspects every conceivable variable that would be affecting your bill and finds nothing out of the ordinary.

    Guess what? When it's really hot outside, your AC works harder to maintain a low temperature than it has to during more temperate months. When it's really cold outside, it has to work even harder to keep the apartment at a warm temperature. Both of these extremes use more power to maintain the temperature you want. In addition, when it's below freezing outside, your water heater has to work that much harder to heat up your water coming from the city water supply. Your apartment's utilities are 100% electric. More electricity = higher bill. How...how are you in college and not grasping this? We have checked every door seal. Every window. Every appliance and outlet. We have checked everything we can. The only variable left up to question here is how often YOU and your roommates use electricity and what YOU set your thermostat to. So what conclusion are you expecting me to come up with? That there's an "electricity leak" or something somewhere in your apartment? Just pure electricity dripping from a hidden bad outlet or something? Or do you think I get a cut of your electric bill if I just tell you there's nothing for us to fix? No. That's not how this works. That's not how any of this works.

    MY electric bill nearly doubled from last month because the temperature is fucking 30 degrees less than it was a month ago. My heater has to work harder to compensate for that. I choose to run my heater at a certain temperature because I'm willing to pay that little extra for warmth, and there's no one else to blame for that but myself. The same thing will happen in in any home in any climate as back and forth as ours. It's just how that process works. This shit isn't magic.

    But no, it's our fault, tho. Sorry that I personally used up so much of your apartment's electricity, I guess.
    are people really that stupid? like...they really don't understand how HVAC works and why it uses more power when the temperatures are more extreme? i can't comprehend how ignorant and uneducated (in terms of how things work, not necessarily book smarts) so many people are. that really just blows my mind.
