Things you just don't get - Page 879

post #13171 of 13486
I sometimes say that about my place of work, but I find people get fired often for the wrong things. Not like they get fired for things they didn't do, but rather it is ass-backwards what people get fired for vs. what allows them to remain in employment.

Getting fired for poor performance is few and far between. It is disgusting.

Like a high performing employee will get fired for taking too long at lunchtime consistently. They cut of their nose to spite their face.

I hate those kind of stupid things. If you're a salaried employee, it shouldn't matter. Do work when it needs to get done, and if you want take a long lunch or leave early if you don't have work to do.

Why is that song about how it is ok to be fat #1 on spotify despite the fact that:
1) It is about how it is ok to be fat.
2) There seem to be a bunch of chubby feminist blogs that have written pieces hating on the song. in addition to the people who hate on it for "skinny shaming"
3) The song sucks.

I think it's pretty catchy.

#2 makes me ok with #1

That site triggered the filter blocker at work. I hope you didn't just get me fired for linking to a porn site or something.

Granted, beauty is a subjective construct that women shouldn’t have to worry about in the first place,

Even reconstructive plastic surgery after breast cancer fulfills this role; when performed for the patient’s personal comfort, it’s still done to uphold the standard that all women must have breasts (well hello, transmisogyny!), which is what’s making that patient uncomfortable in the first place.

What a piece of shit.

I sometimes wish no one had ever introduced the concept of "social construct." (The woman did say "subjective construct" but that's pretty clearly not what she meant.)

Was that the one where Clarkson set it to "Audi following distance"?

Beauty is a useless construct women shouldn't have to worry about eh?

I bet that chick doesn't live in a butt ugly house... I mean, it wouldn't pass StephenHero muster, but I bet she spends time vacuuming it every week, does manual work cleaning, gets repairs done when necessary, and avoids filling it with so much excess shit that it just piles up all over the place hoarders style. That is partially so she gets to enjoy her home and partially so people don't think she is a bum that lives in a dump.

Now why does she refuse to treat her body the same way?

She's probably an uggo.

Pamela Anderson is taking a stand against the Ice Bucket Challenge. Her reasons are..... :confused:

I disagree with her stance, but it's pretty reasonable and totally consistent with earlier statements that she's made. I don't have a problem with it. She's quite right that animals are at best imperfect test subjects for human therapies.

 

All of this is a drop in the bucket compared to restoring NIH funding levels, which should be the real goal of this campaign.

If you were just going on stereotypes, you would guess that the average Frenchman dresses better than he in fact does.
