[Rant] Minor Rant III: For a Few Hollers More

I doubt there was anything wrong with you, but rather something wrong with the store/job.
Well yeah but I had long bouts of unemployment that made it more difficult to find work bc I didn't have a work history. Then when I finally got a dishwashing job I got real depressed bc I was treated like a r slur and I was paid less than the people I was training so I made an even worse first impression on people lol
 
Whole time I had my family nagging me about not having a "real job" lol. I dropped out of community college and was a runaway lol
 
Ugggh gotta roll back my new video drivers bc my laptop shut off from the video card running at 100%

Edit: got it fixed, vice city is now smoothly entering my system like pure heroin :3

Inconsistent communication.
Look, I can understand that Google's opening hours are sometimes off due to quick changes. Your own site should probably get it right, though. And you definitely don't want conflicting info on the VERY SAME PAGE.

I called them so I have the answer, quick quiz for my fellow forumites: are they, or are they not, open this Sunday? I'll disclose in advance that it's not some weird Schrödinger's Bookshop open and closed at the same time.

Last time I bought weed I went to the wrong gas station bc google maps had a kangaroo labeled as circle k, and a circle k labeled as kangaroo. And these companies have had a merger

I would assume they are currently closed on sundays and the map was never updated

I'm clearly fucked up enough to get a card in florida, but that feels like work. I get my drugs in the mail
 
Smacked my phone down on the counter top yesterday. No more smartphone for me! Serious withdrawal.
Also, since my work soft token was installed on that phone...No work today, whoops. On the phone for over an hour now for a new soft token or whatever.
 
Just got back from urgent care...story time:
So about a month ago, I got what appeared to be a blister on the underside of my index finger. At first, I thought it was from crocheting, until I realized that I don't really touch that part of my finger with anything while stitching. Now, I'm guessing maybe a spider bite.

I lanced it...some clear stuff came out, and then it bled like a stuck pig for 3 days. I wrapped it up really good, and finally the bleeding stopped, and so I unbandaged it so it could dry out and heal.

Several days after that, I was working around the apt, and ripped the skin off. It looked more swollen than ever, and simply wouldn't stop bleeding. And by "wouldn't stop bleeding" I mean--for 2 weeks. If I had it bandaged a little firmly, it wouldn't soak the bandage--but as soon as I took it off each day to change it out, it'd just start leaking immediately.

So I went to urgent care (just got back), and she goes "yeah, it's swollen, because your meat is hanging out..you've lost the entire subcutaneous layer". So she cauterizes it with silver nitrate and tells me "you'll never be a hand model now." heh.
 
Funny thing: So, before she cauterizes it, she said "this will hurt. I can numb it if you want. Otherwise, just let me know when it hurts too much and we can take a break."

I explain about my anesthesia thing, so she gets everything ready without the numbing. I asked her if it'll affect my finger dexterity, because I play an instrument. She asks what kind, and about half-way through my first explanatory sentence, she starts burning me. I don't flinch, grunt, or even pause what I'm saying, and after a second she goes. "Can you feel that? You might have some nerve damage."

"Oh, I can feel it." "Does it hurt?" "Oh yeah. I told you I have a high pain tolerance, though." So she keeps on doing her thing and I keep on explaining what a tinwhistle is and where she might have heard one in popular media.

Are you familiar with the legend of Guan Yu, a famous general from the Three Kingdoms period in Chinese history? The guy who's now venerated as the patron god of warfare? The tale goes that he was once struck in the arm by a poisoned arrow, and the poison got in really deep in his arm bone. A doctor said that the only way to treat it would be to cut Guan Yu's arm open and scrape the poison off his bone. So Guan Yu's all like, "Okay, do it then." So the doctor cut open Guan Yu's arm and did the bone scraping thing, and all the while Guan Yu's sitting there chatting, eating, drinking etc, and just generally being completely unbothered that someone is scraping his bone with a metal implement.

Basically, I'm saying you're comparable to the Chinese war god.
