I got sent home from work early today (and told not to come in until Monday) because I said "Fuck you" to a customer who asked me if I was deaf in a nasty tone. I have a really low tolerance towards customers who act like assholes, which is why my main job at the store doesn't involve me working with customers. But then management had the bright idea of scheduling me to work so early when there are a lot of customers.

In the end, I really can't wait until I get my master's degree in accounting and start working towards becoming a CPA because I really hate dealing with condescending customers.

Haha fantastic!

Question though. When you become a CPA what do you intend to do? You will deal with condescending assholes in every job where you interact with other humans.

I can't believe "The Lies of Locke Lamora" was a debut novel.  It is far and away one of the greatest fantasy novels I have ever read.

Seriously. Fucking awesome.

So the person that stole my PS4 has been playing Injustice on my PSN account. Lucky for me! The good news is that I contacted Sony and they happily gave me the IP address that they logged in at. I contacted the police officer that took the original report and he hasn't called me back yet. I did a geolocate on the IP address and I know what city it is near, or in, and it turns out my roommate knows people there. Interesting indeed.

I definitely prefer the PSP version due to a better translation and more tolerable voicework, among other things.

Yeah, I would be playing that if my PSP hadnt been stolen too.

Been playing Star Ocean 2 on my PS1 since my newer systems were stolen. I really like this game.

Macs are PCs too.

I'm just saying...

FUCKING THANK YOU.

I managed to play for awhile before my PS4 disappeared. I was really enjoying it, which is surprising since I typically don't like FPSs. I do wish I had the option to go 3rd person like when you are in the town, because I would totally rock that shit.

I asked my roommate to move out. He will be leaving next Friday after he gets his next check. I will have to keep my eyes on my stuff for the next week or so.

Shitty situation, sorry to hear it.  Is your roommate a friend that you trusted or someone you just ended up living with?

Just someone I ended up living with. I have had terrible luck having friends as roommates, they end up screwing me over on rent and other stuff, so I hoped someone who wasn't a friend would be better. It wasn't. I don't know that he stole my stuff, but his negligence of leaving the back door unlocked and also the fact that his story to me and to the police differs significantly in timeline is what made me decide to ask him to leave. I don't NEED a roommate, I just wanted to try and save some money.

To be fair I don't have a class/job over 31 yet, but I have 15 allied seals simply by stumbling across a hunt in action and throwing a shitty heal on someone. When they kill the creature I get seals and tomestones.

So new developments! My roommate said he worked from 4pm-11pm Saturday, came home to change, then left to see someone until 6am Sunday when he came home and noticed the door slightly ajar.

The weird part is someone logged into my PS4 to play Madden at 10pm Saturday night. The PS4 was in my room, so that means they felt comfortable enough to play in my room for a good long while.

My insurance company is cutting me a check for a portion of my loss, I have no idea what that will be yet. I just hope it is enough to get a new PS4,, though it definitely won't be enough to replace some of the games :-(

I was able to get the serial number for the ps4 at least. Gave it to the cop. I may never get my shit back, but if they do pawn it they will hopefully get caught and I will get it back.
43  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: July 20, 2014, 01:40:24 PM
Man, that really sucks

If you have the original boxes for the systems make sure to tell the police the serial numbers and make sure they inform local Gamestops and pawn shops to look out for those serial numbers.

I don't have the boxes, unfortunately. I do have rental insurance, so I may be able to recoup some of the loss. I will be filling out a list of the games, also since I just bought it 2 months ago at gamestop I will see if they still have the information since I used my rewards card. It's a long shot, but it's a shot.

I am just...annoyed. It is an odd situation. THey didn't take my laptops which were sitting next to the ps4, my desktops, the camera sitting right next to my ps4, the fire safe clearly visible in my closet that has a convenient handle. The curtain that is up in my room entryway to give me privacy when the door is closed was not torn down, despite the fact that it is a weak tension rod holding it up and tugging it brings it down. You would think they would have been in a hurry and pulled it down, instead of gently opening it. I can't just accuse someone of doing it, despite the fact that I really think it was them.

July can officially suck my dick. First I got in a car accident and now I get a text after a wonderful weekend telling me that my apartment was broken into and my ps3,ps4, and all my games were stolen. I am so fucking done.

Hey Grim, Do you know of anything that a 12 year old boy definitely needs to check out when they go to Chicago? My gfs kid is visiting his dad in Chicago and I want to give him some ideas since his dad won't think of any. Thanks!

My diminished value claim has been sent to the insurance company. Now I just need to wait until the car is fixed and then I can start the haggling. My injuries are doing better My neck is stiff and sore still and constantly feels like it needs to crack.
