Things that are pissing you off. - Page 1678

post #25156 of 67011
I hate the "civic duty" party of my employment contract. I hate being a known member of the community. I hate that the preceeding two points require I go to dinners that "honour" people. I hate when those dinners are on a Tuesday night, last until 9:30pm, have shitty food, NO FUCKING BOOZE and are for someone I rather loathe.

I also hate 16 hour days...which that eff'ing dinner made my Tuesday into.

As an occasional after-dark bike commuter (well...in the winter I guess leaving at 5:00 makes you an after dark commuter), I want to punch fucking joggers who go out on the path wearing all black. Didn't their parents teach them anything? Wear something light and/or reflective if you're going to be in a poorly lit space after dark. Or get a damn blinky light for your shoes or something--its not like you are against running with electronics since you have some earbuds in your ear cranked loud enough that you can't hear anyone else sharing the path with you.
I guess by that metric I also want to punch cyclists who ride on the lakefront path at night in dark clothes with no lights. You can get perfectly awesome knockoff knog blinky lights from deal extreme shipped for like $5. I keep a pair on my commuter bike that I have permanently attached by looping a bunch of thread through a hole I drilled in the plastic--sure someone could still steal it, but they would need something sharp and it hasn't happened yet (and if it does, I will still have gotten 2 years of service out of a $5 set of lights).
Man...I think I just hate people.

Actually the cyclist was following traffic in my story. The guy just assumed that since traffic was near standstill that he could cross without looking at all. Lucky the cyclist had some room to swing wide.

I've learned that those delivery guys on bikes NEVER follow the traffic or bike path rules, therefore I ALWAYS look both ways when crossing a street in NYC. Those fuckers ride on sidewalks quite a bit too. I cannot stand ANY cyclist actually riding on a sidewalk.

let's go into business then. Hours of operation are from 11-3 M-TH, 11-1 F. Sundays are scheduled mandatory "meetings" involving fine dinner, fine wine and whisky afterwards.

It didn't sound bad and I was going to tell you to shut up, but then I came to the no booze part. That is torture. Sounds like holidays at my parent's house.

This sounds like my lobbying days. Except there was TONS OF FUCKING BOOZE. Which sounds great, unless you have to do it six days in a row and wake up at 6:30am every day.

I'm not a fan of this sort of thing either. It gets tiresome, and you soon start to resent that you could be at home or anywhere else with people you actually like and doing things you really enjoy.

Not only that, ever seen when they bike on the road, against traffic? WTF is that shit? Fucking bastards. I guess on a positive note, the idiots don't tend to use helmets, so the law of probability will catch up with them sooner or later.

Hate is not strong enough and the funny part is, that cyclists hate other all other cyclists especially when they are walking, the other day someone knocked another cyclist over, on purpose.
I had a woman yell at me while I was crossing a cross walk, the funny part was, that she was on the far side, so it had passed two lanes of traffic before I got near her and apparently it's was my fault that she had to brake. laugh.gif

Yeah Japan and I believe Taiwan the laws are similar. Shit rolls down hill from truck, car, motorbike, bike, pedestrian. However it is only the initial presumption of guilt if you can prove it was the softer road users fault you're apples. The old I didn't see him ploy doesn't work, if you didn't see him you weren't taking due care. Many cabs in Taiwan have cameras facing out at several angles, I assume it is for this reason. In Japan public servants can get the can if they cause a serious road accident.

Euphemism for Community Service Order?

What you do, break the no sausage in city limits ordinance?
