Waking up in the middle of the night never felt so good.

Waking up in the middle of the night never felt so good.

Apparently this is super common, I mentioned it here once and it blew up. This is my most common recurring nightmare.

What's weird is the dream isn't just about high school or college, it's specifically about not having been to class or having done the work then having a test you're unprepared for. I have that dream every couple of months still and I graduated 6 years ago....

With proofreading like that it's a wonder that you graduated at all!

Just to ease your mind, I graduated 20 years ago and still have that dream.

It never goes away.

The leader hates us, we don't know or agree with the laws and customers, there is no good reason to visit that country.

No shit sherlock.

I hate North Korean customers!

I mean, it's not like they're kidnapping tourists left and right. Like 99% of people who visit there end up being fine.

You'd think. There was someone in /sub/moraldilemmas a few months ago saying he -really- -really- wanted to go because it was interesting to him, but that he felt bad giving money to North Korea.

"I simply want to observe how they live and see it with my own eyes because I am very interested in the country and how its people live. I also want to see all the monuments and propaganda because I also find that very interesting. I would also find it interesting to be able to talk to North Korean citizens because there is basically no other opportunity for me to do that without actually going to North Korea. Even just being there would be a surreal and fascinating experience for me."

Idiot.

Edit:I forgot to include he also kept talking about "going where most tourists don't" and trying to help the citizens because what we're doing now isn't helping them. High chance he would have done something stupid and got caught and then been detained, charged and sentenced.

Unless high school was like 20 years ago and you're reminiscing

Well they were attracted to what they remember of you in high school and at this point they'd have forgotten all the annoying shit you did. So bang em before they learn you still live at home and have accomplished none of your life goals.

Works best if you're attractive.

Exactly, timing is everything for this meme.

Payday is tomorrow. Words can't describe how good it feels to no longer have this burden. There will be much celebration.

You've reached our generation's version of the American dream - to have a total net worth of $0.

With all of the hype over the E3 releases, I feel it's important to keep this in mind

mine is about 5 years and steam sales under 10 dollers

I've taken on a 1 month policy since 2013. If after a month the reviews are still good, the game doesn't seem broken, and my friends are still playing it, I'll buy it.

E3 is not the same with out XPlay or AttacOfTheShow!!!

Can't lose hope if you still play a game that came out 2 years ago.

What a save! What a save! Nice one!

Every year, I hear single mothers complaining that father's day doesn't recognize them. I respect what you do, but it's pretty simple.

Every year, I hear single mothers complaining that father's day doesn't recognize them. I respect...

i don't get it at all, why are mums complaining about fathers day when there's mothers day, and same goes for dads who complain about mothers day. they both have their days why would any of them complain about the other?

Because people like to bitch about everything.

And as my father never tired of telling us, "Every day is Children's Day."

I'm going to sound like a total dick here, but here it goes...

Many single mothers are single for a reason. They didn't make good partners. That might be because they are generally selfish and think everything should be about them.

Yes, this doesn't describe all single mothers.

Edit: Wow, this blew up. I never realized that believing a woman can be selfish was such a controversial belief.

Also, as a deep left liberal, I also didn't realize how delicious "librul tears" could be.

I was leaving a job interview, and was totally tongue tied.

I was leaving a job interview, and was totally tongue tied.

That's when you tell him, "You know what they say, dress for the job you want not the job you have" give him a wink and move on.

I was leaving a job interview last week, in my suit & tie. I was driving home, when My current boss pulls up on the highway next to me and rolls his window. "You look like you just left a job interview?" I lied told him I was leaving a funeral.

My office dress code is against tight spandex and capes :(

RIP former job.

Father's Day is coming up: June 18th

Father's Day is coming up: June 18th

Doesn't apply to all countries though, my dad would get pretty confused if I mentioned anything this weekend since father's day is celebrated in November over here. :)

No way in hell am I getting mine a gift. He can go fuck himself.

God my Dad's gift taken care of, but I'm excited because it'll be my first father's day on the other end, as a father.

Well, my dad's dead, so there's that. But I still want to wish a happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, keep up the bad puns! :)

That's why it's called a "lunch break"

That's why it's called a "lunch break"

I once worked for a company that promised our clients 24-hour service for their needs. Problem was that we didn't have a night crew and didn't really have that big of a staff (at least not in our department) for that sort of availability. They wanted the employees to just be on call at all times of the day without overtime pay. I once got a call at 3 am to convert a file for someone. My response was "Are you crazy?". The company also promised 5 minute turn around on all emails. So one time a client emailed asking for a file. I'm on lunch. I didn't check my email until I got back to the office 45 minute later. I had 15 emails from the Sales Rep asking me to RESPOND ASAP!!! Later that day, the whole department got an email alerting us that the President of the company personally told her that we have to be available to answer emails at all times of the day or risk being fired. Not one person agreed to this at the time of hiring, so I forwarded the email to HR and asked "Can you look into this?" and within about an hour HR sent a company-wide email to remind all employees of their rights to undisturbed breaks and lunch (promised in all signed contracts) and how there is no set obligation to work after hours without pay. Sales Rep wasn't happy with me from that point on, but I didn't stay long in that company anyway.

Holy fuck this is absolutely absurd! Giving clients unreasonable expectations is the worst thing you can do.

Service level agreements need to be logical and reachable. What a piece of shit person.

reminds me of an old coworker I had named Tony. When the boss finally told us we can have 20m for lunch Tony pulled out a stop watch. It started out that when the boss came to ask him for something <click> he would turn off the stop watch...give the boss the answer then <click> turn the watch back on. After about a week he would just point to the still ticking clock and not say anything.

That's sales for you.

Have you seen how expensive some minimalistic shit is? Some are willing to pay a lot to have less.

I love all the tinyhouse videos that circulate on Facebook: "This little off grid shack is 20 square feet, made entirely of recycled garbage, and costs $96,000 to build."

edit: Guys I was being hyperbolic. But you gotta admit that some of the inspiration porn videos on FB are pretty ridiculous and seem to defeat the entire purpose of wanting a tinyhome to begin with.

To be fair: some are much cheaper and provide the comfort of a house with the mobility of renting for less than $30,000. I would buy one if I weren't moving to Europe soon. I'm also very short and don't keep lots of things

Half of the population makes less than $30k. Wages have been stagnant for decades while the cost of everything has risen significantly. Most people have no savings and even very small unexpected expenses are enough to ruin them. Americans today are in fact unusually broke.
