Sometimes people are simply unreal. Suspended an employee today for tardiness and a no call/no show...her excuse was she didn't feel good anyway and another employee told her it was OK to take off work. WTF, who is the supervisor here, jesus.

Another one that gets me is when a person calls out of work because they are either drunk or hungover. Whenever we get a new employee in our workplace, I give them a heads up that you can't call out of work because of a hangover. Our hourly budget only allows for 2 workers on a shift for most days, so when someone calls out, that's 99% percent of the store calling out. I would say 50%, but that doesn't emphasize the seriousness of a call out...We're lenient with tardiness if they call in early saying they are going to be a bit late, but they have to make that call.
This remindse of my radioshack days where I usually ended up working by myself for half a day every shift I had. Boss would be doing "managerial duties" in the back and the second worker wouldn't be in usually til my shift was either almost over or just ending. I hated it, especially because I was told our weekly work hours were too low from the district over expending its budget. Meanwhile, every radioshack I ever visited always had 2 people on the floor and 1 in the back.

Course, my favorite was scheduling the work week a day before the new week started, but if I had to get a day off or rescheduled, I had to ask 2 weeks in advance.

Once before, never again.

At least Ludger is about 1000x more appealing looking that Milla's hooker couture.

I'm really happy to see all these new announcements.  And from what I've played of Xillia 2 and heard, I'm hoping to put my Xillia 1 hate as water under the bridge.  Even if the backgrounds and layout are still the fucking worst, at least it'll play better. :)

English gameplay!  Yaay.  Waay overdue!

Sounds like they fixed Milla's"talking through a styrofoam box" voice. She sounds lovely.

I won't be satisfied til vesperia ps3 sees a US release. I will wait forever, but I will never stop believing.

Then I shall continue my cheeky shenanigans unabated!

Anyways, haps. I was working at Troy Burch's new NY office today. For those of you not familiar with said name, she's a big fashion designer. I really only know of her for shoes and handbags from a quick google search, but w/e. It's pretty cool in theory working at all these high end fancy shmancy places, but it's always the same deal. Enter through a hole in the wall loading dock, do the same cat6 cable ends, hang a bunch of TVs and speakers, mount converter hardware, test everything, leave before anyone cool comes in. At least the pay's good :)

You could also contact sony for a service repair, which should run you 130 bucks in the states. Iirc they offer to "upgrade" your older system for a newer model too if you want.

As I was busy abusing the hell out of my body today (again) the thought occurred to me... I haven't seen Yoda on here in quite awhile. I miss him. Good peoples he was/is. I hope he is enjoying the Lunar games he bought from me...

Er unlikely coming back.  He's on a "full cleanse" of some sorts from our turf.
I wonder if any of that's from me?

Don't tell anyonr else, but I secretly jam to applause.

Working at wall street today, have been here for the a few days doing a huge installation. Sucks balls.

Got my new glasses yesterday, vision is odd from them, my peripheral view is sort of double visiony unless I forcefully focus on what I wanna see, then it straightens. The lenses are much larger than my previous ones, so I have a larger field of vision without having to adjust my glasses, which if you wear glasses you probably know exactly what I mean.

Lunch break over, back to work :(

If you pay ANY of those charges I will find you and smack you silly. You get on the phone with their customer service and tell them the techs did nothing to resolve the issue and that they sold you q service that doesn't work and you refuse to pay any of said charges. On the contrary, they owe you for charging you for the service that doesn't function and that the 4 techs you had to deal with all knew nearly nothing and were a waste of time, whereas they could have sent a competent field tech who wasn't outsourced and actually had knowledge of how the services worked. Fight them till the end of time and then fight more.

You could also make 15 junk Facebooks.
Use mailinator to invent emails.

Where dignity stops, smarts begin ;)
I was thinking of that, but I'd figured why not maybe spread the word of the game first. I mean, if I like it enough to be so lame, maybe others would also enjoy it, you know?

See, kevadu knows how to impress with a trailer. I won't lie, that first trailer alone looked like a much cooler sell than the shitty trailer that started this topic.
11  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Help with winning some free stuff in a cellphone game. on: April 12, 2014, 12:29:37 PM
Ok, I know it's ballsy of me to ask you all this, and I won't plaster it in a sig to force it harder than I want, but as the topic says, I'm trying to win some free crap in a cell phone game. Game's called Brave Frontier, and if I get 15 friends to like their facebook page, I win. I have made no effort to use facebook for anything and the only friend I have is because I had no means of contacting him outside of it. Anyways, here's the game's facebook page...


Now here's my facebook page


Again, I know it's ballsy of me to ask this, but I enjoy the game enough to give up some dignity to ask this. Thanks to anyone in advance who helps me out.

Been watching Surviving Jack on fox. Christopher Meloni is an amazingly versatile actor. It's made me laugh pretty regularly. Should check it out.

I gotta ask kin, how many more tries did it take to clear? I mean, we kept wiping because the healers kept fucking up divebombs when I was there, so I'm really baffled how I leave and you guys win.

And by baffled I mean incredibly pissed off.

Just another Monster Hunter clone
This basically stamped unimpressed on my forehead. Thanks much kevadu.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: AMAZING new TRAILER of FREEDOM WARS on: April 11, 2014, 08:29:00 AM
This trailer showed no gameplay or anything in game, just a pretty cgi video which wasn't even pretty. Color me unimpressed.
