Smooth jazz. It's fucking elevator music for morons. Every single purveyor of that shite should be rounded up and encased in concrete along with every single shred of "music" they ever recorded in every format, every single tab, set list, piece of sheet music, scribbled on cocktail napkins that may contain (fucking lame) musical ideas, every musical instrument that was ever profaned by having that pap played through or on it, any children or other relatives who might share a predilection towards this musical equivalent of dry humping a dead goat and dropped into the deepest mid-ocean trench on the planet. After that has been taken care of, scientists can begin work on a cure for ever having heard that shite.

The next time someone asks me what kind of music I like and I mention jazz and they come back with, "Me, too, I love Kenny G!", I will projectile vomit on them.

So what's the point?

At a minimum, they're paying your time to produce documentation that catalogues your value, performance and reliability that makes it more difficult (expensive) to ship your job off to Vietnam.

People in high places who have no idea what you actually do trying to dictate what you should do, when you should do it, how you should do it, what things you should do it with, and expecting it all to be perfectly documented so it fits into their neat little clueless box.

 Sorry morons life doesn't always work like you think it should. Especially when weather is involved. If we actually tried to do it your way nothing that matters would ever get done.

Sounds like the owners of the last company i worked for. They believed you could fit a square peg into a round hole.

Man, don't ever calculate the number of hours you've worked vs a "standard" work year and better yet, don't calculate your actual yearly wage.  :mad:

 Also never ever calculate your actual total tax rate.

Doctors.  If stuff is working and nothing has changed, why do I have to pay you money to tell you that in person before you refill my meds (yearly I can understand, every couple months gets annoying)?

A visit where there are changes takes 5 or 10 minutes for me because I have read articles on pubmed and already have a treatment plan prepared (along with journal articles to justify my position if you want to read them or keep a copy for later).  It's only a slightly more progressive version of the "standard of care" based on recent research.  You would think they would appreciate not having to explain things and just being able to say yes or no, but it's always stressful the first time with a new doctor seeing if they are going to freak out because they think I don't trust them.  I just want to prepare myself for an informed dialogue.

I was about to rant about Scottrants . . . . but they are not rant worthy . . . lil squeeky whining from down in the battery compartment . . . .

So I'll rant about Ed.

And cops.

Happy birthday to em both.

F*cking birthdays.


No pizza for you.

OK, THAT"S too far, you fracking birthday hog!

We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Justifying my existance at work aka "Year End Reviews"

Jesus, I come in to work every day seldom missing a day due to being sick. I ensure systems are functioning, I build and deploy new systems, I create lots of process and procedure documentation, I create plenty of howto documentation, I write tools to manage the non production environment to identify and resolve problems before there is data loss. I attend meetings. I mostly talk nice, even to idiots.

Then I have to spend time reviewing the work I've done over the past year in order to make sure you know I'm somewhat valuable even though last week when I mentioned Networking had asked me again to join their team (6th time now) and after that you said you'd support me if I wanted to go and then I said I was fine where I was and you said "good". So it seems I'm doing some good.

And better yet, I've only received 3 raises in 6 years, not even cost of living matching.

So what's the point?

Carl

Didn't you have to report what classes you will take to better your performance and what is your career path plan to become senior vice-president of the company? everyone knows that if you don't aspire to be senior VP, you are an unmotivated, lazy sloth, even IF you like what you do.

Peter is running into this a lot lately, also.  Having recently been diagnosed with a chronic illness, he does a lot of research and comes prepared with notes to his doctor visits.  We finally found a good doctor, but he went through a few in a row that were clearly unable to cope with a patient that had his own treatment ideas.  I guess there are a lot of people who just google their symptoms and think that makes them medical experts, but the doctors'  dismissive reactions were still frustrating.

Maybe once I finish my PhD then they will take me seriously more often.  I'm lucky that I live in an area that has a ton of pharma research going on, so there are lots of people that know what is happening and more or less need the dr to sign off on their rxs.  I've had two doctors suggest things I hadn't heard about, but out of all the ones I've seen that's a very small percent.   I thought the current specialist would be great but they stuck me with his PA.  We will see if that causes problems next week when I ask about a new medication.

If Peter needs any journal articles he finds on pubmed and wants to read let me know.  If it's anything autoimmune I unfortunately know way too much about that. :(

It's a rip off, I know. Don't call me.

I'm on the no call list. The calls are from south of the border. Canadian laws don't apply.
US laws say the same but the spammers say they're not to blame. Subcontractors are to blame.

 Fucking militant enviros. My road is closed right now because there's a rock the size of a compact car blocking one lane in a blind curve. Back in the day we would have just stuck some TNT in it, blown it up, and dumped the remains over the side. The road would have been open today.

 Now we need meetings, and then more meetings with all kinds of entities that are concerned with protecting the environment. Somehow this rock has become toxic since it landed on the road.

 Nevermind that the rock would have ended up down there if the road didn't exist.

So, the rock was uphill (presumably in "the environment" up there) and then fell downhill and landed on the road, where it magically became full of rock cancer or something?   :headscratch:  Dude, that sucks.  Are you stuck in your house and will have to resort to eating your neighbors for survival?

  You would think they would appreciate not having to explain things and just being able to say yes or no, but it's always stressful the first time with a new doctor seeing if they are going to freak out because they think I don't trust them.  I just want to prepare myself for an informed dialogue.

Peter is running into this a lot lately, also.  Having recently been diagnosed with a chronic illness, he does a lot of research and comes prepared with notes to his doctor visits.  We finally found a good doctor, but he went through a few in a row that were clearly unable to cope with a patient that had his own treatment ideas.  I guess there are a lot of people who just google their symptoms and think that makes them medical experts, but the doctors'  dismissive reactions were still frustrating.


My doctor gets upset with me whenever I mention my other doctor (WebMD).  :)

The thing pissing me off today is "energy efficient" appliances.  Our old kitchen faucet just broke and the replacement has so many flow restrictors that it doesn't have enough force to actually push food scraps off the plate.  I have to use way more water to get anything clean.  Ditto the new dishwasher -- we can only fill it halfway if we want, you know, clean dishes.  So we have to run the dishwasher at least twice as often.  How the heck is any of this "energy efficient"??  >:( >:( >:(

Db killers, er, flow restrictors can be 'modified'. Just sayin'. But, yeah, I feel your pain. You can't flush a decent sized lobster down a toilet these days.

People who go through all the trouble to catch a big fish, photograph /video it on you tube, but let it go.



You caught it, eat it! What's the point of fishing if you don't eat the fish? Don't say drinking beer, you can drink beer anywhere.

People who worry about how & what I spend my money on. People who worry about the legal choices that I make. People who bitch when people change their minds. People who bitch about what I do w/ my free time.
