Pin striped suit, three day stubble(cause the armani add did it), white shirt with a poped up collar and I'd love to invest your 8 million....give me a break.

Earlier this week I had a joint selling meeting with 8 people from one of the Big 4 consulting firms, including a partner and a director. The meeting agenda specified business casual with a couple of options, including "suit without tie". I of course wore a tie, and I was the only person in the room (of 50 or so) wearing one. Halfway through the morning the partner took me aside and suggested that I could lose the tie, or at least should not wear one the following day.

Hrmph.

Now I try on a DG70 Arran at Barneys and 9.5 seems like the right size. But I didn't buy these because they are black and I want brown. So I'd like to order from one of our affiliates but now I'm concerned that there will be sizing variations here as well.

FML...maybe I can trade problems with leonidas

I didn't get a lollapalooza $75 sale ticket frown.gif

It was pretty unlikely because they sell like...27 tickets total at that price, but I thought I had a good system. Instead of being one of those idiots who spent the day hitting f5 and posting to twitter about it., I set up a plugin to scan a page and alert me whenever it was modified.

Unfortunately I chose the "Tickets" page to scan instead of a non-ticket related page. Maybe it has something to do with their webserver's caching methods, but the actual ticket page didn't update to say that tickets were on sale until after the tickets were sold out.

the biggest problem leonidas had, was that GG had not yet been invented.

for the purpose of this answer, i will assume all the sizes you mentioned are the UK sizes GG put on the box, correct me if that is not the case.

i ordered the same size in the MTOs i got from nick at bespoke, and the ones i got from barneys, all were 11UK, and fit great. i think then that if the 9.5UK at barneys fit, then that should work if you order from nick or another associate.

its possible they size different for the shoes made for RLs, idrk honestly, never tried them on. the whole shoe sizing game between companies, lines, and lasts is damn near impossible to get right without a try on. sorry mang.

I am n intelligent rational human being, I believe that other people are also rational intelligent human beings. I am wrong.

My disabled younger brother requires a new prosthetic eye, under the law in NSW he is able to get one free. In the past 12 months he has had 10 eye infections caused due to the fact that the current eye which is five years old mind you no longer fits as the eye socket has shrunk and the eye has worn down due to wear and tear.

First you have to get an order number to get the eye, which was provided by the hospital and now they have withdrawn it and want him to come back in sometime in April to have the eye socket looked at. Why?

I have spoken with the provider and he can check the socket, and if its good, currently its free from infection, he can then make a mould then produce the eye and bingo no more eye socket infections. No problems, so why then do I have to spend two days fucking around with the house, the area manager who wont return my calls and then the hospital. To finally arrive where i no longer talk to the monkey and start talking to the organ grinder.

So after two days I now have the hospital complaints phone number and i am able to make a formal complaint. That is going to take how long to resolve? I have to waste more time speaking to idiots to get some action taken to ensure my brother gets a new eye.

But wait do you want a set of steak knives with that?

I am also informed by the house manager that he has not seen a dentist in three years(WTF?) and after a six month wait to see a specialist he has been diagnosed with major dental problems, then she informs me that I now have to provide six weeks notice in writing if I want to get my brother for a home visit. What the fuck?

Has the world dissolved into some sort of Kafkaesque bureaucratic nightmare. The way I feel I could rip someone a new arsehole.

As an intelligent rational human being why do i feel my life is being systematically being destroyed by idiots?

Even when I'm looking for something work related there's at least a 7% chance it's porn.

my son has a bunch of cavities and getting him to properly brush his teeth is almost impossible. he has been doing so up until now without toothpaste, and tonight a new toothpaste regime has begun. no fun.

Take a video of his face as he gets his cavities drilled and filled. Show him the video every time he doesn't want to brush his teeth.

 

I don't have children. (Click to show)

 

Obviously.

Obviously.

he is actually having a tooth removed, and i think 2 others filled. ill pass on the video. toothbrushing is now in my job description as my wife has a harder time fighting with him to do it. she is too nice.

at one point i actually told him that he would not be allowed any treats anymore if he would not brush. he said, fine. i lol'ed and backpedaled, was not expecting him to say that. it took a few more tactics but i think we have it down now.
