Must be a NY thing. Yesterday, an hour before the car service was scheduled to pick me up and drive me to JFK, they left me a VM: "Hi, this is ____ from Telecar. We just wanted to let you know we may not be able to have a car there by 3:45 (the time for which I reserved a car several weeks ago). The next call you receive will be to inform you what time the car will be there."
Clowns. Cue Seinfeld rental car reservation issue.

we'll have the same argument:

wife: "why did you order mexican food, I hate mexican food"

me: "because I love mexican food… why are annoyed? I also ordered you korean fried chicken for you"

wife still will be annoyed throughout the whole meal for some reason.
How are you still married if you are still trying to employ logical discussion in that sort of situation?

WTF!!!!!!
and repeating small time sequences (if possible) would mean that to those around you, you are ageing waaay too fast.

Time travel?  - No.
Faster than light propulsion?- possibly.

fucking theoretical physicists!!!!,learn a science. might as well have an arts degree in philosophy.ffffuuuu.gif

What if you made two cups of coffee, so there'd still be one left? You just need to plan better.

Chicago here. Have had similar things with a non-airport Hertz rental car...I show up at the time of my reservation (and I have hertz gold) and they don't have any cars.

I understand not having the actual level of car I reserved (I always rent the smallest and get upgraded when they don't have one), but simply not having a car at all? wtf? I know you don't have to prepay for the reservation and could just not show up...but its not like I was even late. Pretty shitty to not have cars available for the advance reservations of people in your own loyalty program.

Crappy as hell week. In the middle of final exams. Original time for final was postponed because of a snow "emergency" on Tuesday. Make up day (today) get's screwed because some wack job decided to roam campus with a gun. Cue security shelter in place procedure for 1.5 hours. Exam is now postponed another day but it conveniently conflicts with my other final. NO idea how I'm going to get the make up done and study for the 2nd exam. Yeah, yeah glad there were no casualties but what the fuck man.

My doctoral dissertation proposal presentation is in a week, and I just finished the first draft of the proposal document to send out to my committee.
post #56243 of 67011
Must be a very thorough draft, requiring little change, then. Won't cause a problem some red bull can't cure anyway. Best of luck with the proposal!

This was fucking hilarious.


Wel at least me being pissed off made somebody smile.:D

 

"intelligence without a practical application is imbecillic" - i understand what they are saying, and it IS fucking hilarious. dreamers with a PHD in idiot.

 

a theoretical physicist won't be the one who puts man on neighbouring planets.

 

 

And it's too cold. way too cold. longing for a beachside beer in cuba.

People sharing their anecdotal experiences, and acting like they're the same as science. n=1? Yeah that sounds reliable.

stay strong, brother! Remember that our entanglements with each other will come and go, but a good kitchen sink will last generations.

We're having a NYE party at one of our friend's houses this year. All the wives/girlfriends are getting together to help plan things so the hosts have asked that we toss them some money to offset costs. All they are asking is $30 a head for all you can eat and drink, with the leftover cash going to decorations, entertainment, etc.

One of the dudes invited is legitimately pissed that he has to pay $60 for him and his girlfriend, saying that they are eating beforehand and bringing their own booze. This seriously pisses me off. Our friends are offering their home (which will be trashed) for a party of close to 80 people and asking for a small kick into the kitty. You can't even do dinner and a fucking movie for $60, never mind what NYE bar/club events cost. To make matters more frustrating, this same guy was bragging about how well he was doing last time we spoke. On the bright side I'll likely get loaded and call him out at some point. Maybe they should toss me some of the money for entertainment?

Fuck the IRS.

Fuck!

For one of the projects I am on, we have a daily morning update call. The thing is, the call is at 8:30, prior to the traditional 9am start of day. I have a bit of a gripe with that but can live with it, particularly when the project is reaching critical milestones; however, the call is every day, milestones or not. As a result, the call often isn't necessary. At 8:30 I'm in the car and much prefer to have a nice relaxing drive into the office. I also doubt that everyone's additional time is being charged back to the project and being captured in resource loading.

Now the part that really annoys me is this...if you're going to have the daily call...at 8:30...on people's personal time...the organizer should never, ever, ever be late at all. The organizer should be calling-in at 8:25. Nobody should ever have to wait. 3-4 minutes late and you've just wasted 20% of what is supposed to be the call time. The way our conference call system works, everyone will be on hold until the host calls in. If everyone calls in exactly on time and the host is late, I'm pretty fucking annoyed.

On top of that, there is always a good song on that I end up having to miss.
