    This film director/artist I work with is driving me insane. He disappears for weeks at a time and never...never answers calls.

    Usually he comes out of hiding and shoots me a message..."I'm ready to work now. I'm serious." to which I respond..."OK. I'm ready for you to work. I have shit waiting for you." Then he usually says..."Well get me a job and meet me in __________. I wanna shoot some things there." And I go..."Did you not check Basecamp? I've sent you $275k worth of jobs in the last 3 weeks. I guess I'll call these folks back to see if they'll still have you. You asshole."

    The guy does great work but he actually explains his behavior with: " Man, I'm an artist and I can't be expected to plan." :laugh:

    Now that I just got off a call and had to turn down a high dollar job that would have taken him 2 days to do I realize I need to find him an assistant and not take no for an answer. He really needs someone to hold his hand

    I have never seen something so bizarre.

    :fu:

    Are you the manager? I feel for you...I used to manage some musicians and it was a thankless job that was more like babysitting than managing. And then they complain when they have to give you XX% of the income.

    Yes I'm his manager and business partner. You are right about the babysitting. Unbelievable how little he would have to worry about if he would just do what I suggest. Bleh

    Really bad night out, went to a house party. I don't usually go to them because I like clubs better, but I knew a lot of the people there so I thought i'd go. First off all my booze got nicked so I had nothing to drink, then my girlfriend took a drink from some guy who was being weird and moments later she was crippled on the floor and being sick and crying and then some fucking dickhead who had been starting with me all night tries to kick her in the face,, like literally kick her in the face, who the fuck does that. Had to call a taxi because it was like 10 miles away in the suburbs, which was long and now she's passed out in my bedroom being sick into a bucket.

    The life of a chav.... jk bro. Somewhat.

    So I fucking love summer. Everything about it and I hate it when summer starts to end. Anyway, the sunlight is different during autumn and I've noticed this week we've started to get that sunlight. Also I woke up a little while ago and it is really REALLY cool this morning. Fuck this shit. I want to live in perpetual summer.

    Complete strangers who call my home before 9 AM on a Saturday. I happen to be up already, but there's a good chance I wouldn't be. WTF?

    I swear each new version of Office is more aggravating than the last. 2010 breaks new boundaries in counter-intuitive design and general suckitude. Using Word is killing me today. I want one page landscape, the rest portrait. First I have to learn a new way of setting page orientation, the old one worked fine. I follow the instruction for rotating one page and it flips them all. It flips them all seemingly regardless of what I do. It has also shoved in a load of random page breaks for no reason I can see. I can't wait till the document is up to the whole ~ 100 page length to see what formatting high-jinks the programme can throw my way when I am not expecting it. I can't deal with this level of stress on a Saturday.

    I want to head-butt my laptop.

    My gf turns my life into slow motion. She needs 1,5 hours to shower, do her hair and make-up before we go shopping... every god damn day of the weekend. Choosing in the super market what she wants for dinner? 30 minutes. In the restaurant? 15 minutes to select her drink out of a list of 10 possibilities. She's so damn picky with everything and never really satisfied with anything.

    Do the world, and yourself, a favour and let her know these are not endearing traits. If you are going to make other people wait whilst you choose something you should at least have the good grace to enjoy it.

    My current gf takes mere minutes to get ready for anything. She came over in jeans and a t-shirt and was changed and ready for a black tie dinner ~20 minutes later. It has actually taken some adjustment to get used to. I say we should head out, expecting to be able to relax for a while before I get ready, and suddenly she is by the front door waiting for me to catch up. It is kind of alarming.

    Could be worse. The Mrs. spend the three hours prior to an event howling at us all about We're Going To Be Late And It's All Your Fault, so I get myself and the children ready and in the end we're all waiting on her to get squared away (usually half-an-hour or so, easily), and then it's a mad dash to arrive 30 minutes before anyone else.

    Come to Texas. We have your perpetual summer right here. Autumn is only three months away, though.

    Same here man, but that's the breaks of living with an Asian woman. Won't even take out the garbage without her makeup on. I once had a girlfriend who made sure to wake up before me so that she could put her makeup on before I woke up, I don't even remember seeing her natural face, lol.

    I think my lady wakes up in the middle of the night and poops, or does it before she showers and spends like an hour and a half in the bathroom, because I've lived with her in a tiny apartment with 1 bathroom, and I can't ever recall ever her even making the faintest fart, let alone time in the bathroom that would normally denote a #2 session. Weird.

    It's better than the alternative of a woman who neglects grooming or always dresses like shit, but yeah it can be frustrating sometimes. My wife has a habit of telling me she's ready to leave 20 or 30 minutes before she's actually ready. She's getting a little better these days about leaving the house without makeup, we go running together in the mornings before breakfast and I've convinced her that she doesn't need full makeup for that.

    p.s. Asian women don't poo.

    I agree with you and am fine to live with the 2 hour getting ready sessions and million dollars of self maintenance, because I realize that my other alternative is an ass with at least 4-6 distinct curvatures not in the least bit camouflaged by the words 'JUICY' emblazoned across it, and tits that you have to roll as you bring them up off the floor.
