Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5126

If you're looking for a way to stay cool in NYC I'd go sockles loafers all day. I do it in DC

How do I make loafers look worse? I know! I won't wear socks with them!

Penny loafers are awesome when you're lazy as fuck, period.

I couldn't be bothered to tie shoe laces for my work environment.

Now, if I were in a business professional work environment and / or BOS or NYC, where there is an abundance of attractive hunnies who be mirin, then yes to more formal dress shoes.

I like my one pair of suede penny loafers. Couldn't abide by a more formal pair though...when you get to things that aren't in a moccasin construction or are made out of fully shined leather, it gets weird.

Right now, they live in the office and are the shoes I wear when I take the bike or motorcycle to work. They work well for this, as I typically pack more casual non-wool pants, and one of them slips in the heel a bit so I think I would destroy too many socks if I used them for walking my normal commute.

It is rediculous how often I cut myself in the act of shave maybe I should just go back to "lectric shave." The other option would be to take greater care, I guess.

Maybe you have barnacles growing out of your face and shaving lacerates them.

The thought of that actually happening made me cringe.

I know there is a Seinfeld sketch about this...but you would think things might have changed a little with the advent of the internet.

Made a U-Haul reservation a while ago to help my GF move at the end of the month. She has to be out the night of the 31st and can't be in until the morning of the 1st...so there's no way around parking the stuff in a truck overnight and moving in in the morning.

So I reserved the truck for 24 hours starting at 6PM on the 31st. Today they call me and tell me they can't do that and that I'd need to have the truck back by the time they open on the 1st. Something about "the trucks make multiple rentals in a day" and that I could instead rent a different truck for use on the 1st. Finally convinced them to let me have the truck until 9AM which should be enough time...

Well what's the fucking point of making a reservation in advance? Don't fancy computer systems exist to make this possible? I know trucks get busy at the end of the month...that's why I reserved the damn thing far in advance and made sure to specify how long I would need.

Their reservation guarantee is laughable bullshit. First, they promise to give you $50 if they don't have a truck. What the fuck are you going to do with $50 on the 31st of the month? You certainly aren't going to find another rental place with trucks available. Second, that guarantee doesn't apply until the local store contacts you and confirms the reservation which they say might happen the day before the reservation. What the fuck are you going to do the day before moving day when U-Haul cancels on you and doesn't even give you $50 to drink away your sorrows?

Fuck them, just take the truck back when you're ready. This is so much better than them screwing up on the front end and not having a truck available when you want to pick it up. Possession, nine-tenths, etc.

+1

You reserved and have documentation...right?

So if 9am turns into 12...fuck them!
post #76886 of 85729
Nah, the email itself has no documentation, and it sounds like technically the reservation wasn't confirmed until they called me.

The email has a link to the reservation...but of course they have since "updated" that reservation to have the limited time window.

Obviously, I could just not bring the truck back...I am having a hard time figuring out what their late policy is though. Seems to range from "They charged me an extra day even though I was only 5 minutes late!!" to "They said it would be $200"/"They kept my deposit". But realistically, I know there is like a 50% chance that they won't even have the right truck for me when I do show up...because someone else didn't bring it back on time.

Trying to make reservation with Penske...they are a little more expensive...but maybe they won't try to fuck me in order to squeeze in another rental (which is probably what the local uhaul location is doing).

When you open a new tab to Google something and completely forget what it was.

Okay here's a event what be happened tell me what you think. I'm walking on the sidewalk when I notice a person approaching from a 45 degree angle on my right and behind me. Given his velocity and angle he's fixin' to arrive at the sidewalk such a manner as to pull up even with me. This is a result that is to be avoided on account of awkward. So whose responsibility is it to take evasive action? Not mine: since the guy is behind me I didn't "officially" see him even though I saw him de facto. So by process of elimination must be his responsibility. But he didn't change his velocity at all. Eventually I decided to speed up my pace even though it shouldn't have come to that.

Idk if it's funny or not but i ran on the same platform as trump in my ap U.S. history class like 10 years ago...mine was satire...a fucking wall? How delusional is he ?
