Cab companies that charge their drivers exorbitant processing fees for credit card transactions.

Inevitably fucks the end consumer over because half the drivers refuse to take you if you want to pay with credit.

About to go take my shower and I hear a hissing sound coming from the water heater/AC closet. Open it up and the water heater is spraying water everywhere. Joy of joys.

95% of the time the cabbie is just bullshitting you to try to get cash. Tell him you don't have any cash, so it's credit card or nothing, and their machine always miraculously starts working.

Yup. They're also allowed to call the numbers into the HQ, where they will run the charge. Should be a last resort because it's really shady but it's better than 'cash or cops.'

True... but I have had a cabbies go batshit in this instance and pull weapons, so I try to avoid it. Haha.

I woke up with a nasty headache. I took something for it immediately, but that has only served to take the edge off the pain, which is making it very hard to concentrate at work. Just a bit longer until I can take another dose of Excedrin...

Here's something I've noticed as of late: when you compliment people, they will sometimes turn it into an insult against you. If you compliment them for a skill, they'll assume you're complimenting them because you don't have the skill, which makes you a loser. Or if you compliment someone on a new haircut and they say "Umm ya, I'm actually willing to spend a little bit to make my hair look nice." To where I'm gun shy about complimenting people because I fear to be insulted.

L'Inc, after careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that you hang out with some fucked up people.
