Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Back to work dogs

It's labor day. For some of you, you're enjoying each other's company over in Seattle.

For the rest of the crowd, we get to relax in the comfort of our own homes, take a walk outside, catch up on that novel you've been meaning to read or in my case, gambling online in low stakes no limit hold'em.

I've been starting this routine where I'll buy into a game once every Sunday. The payoff for getting to the final table is tremendous for a 22 dollar buy in. In any event, I'm working on that and hopefully it'll pay off in the long run with a bit of luck and skill on my part.

We work damn hard for our money. So here's a thread to recognize all the people in the system earning their keep and working for the man. Happy labor day everyone. Take comfort in the fact that this day is yours to do whatever you feel.

I happen to be a consultant myself. I'm also rather content in that position even though they're making ridiculous overhead on me. I guess that's the sign of the times we live in. Eat the rich and all that.

Oooh AK suited. Brb.

    Man, when I was a laborer, I worked nearly everday of the year just so the luxury class can enjoy days like Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. My only holiday was the days I call in sick.

    It is.. they are still working

    I think they just have limits on what overtime they will work.

    he's got a point though

    it seems the people who labor day is meant to celebrate are also most of the people who don't get the day off on labor day

    We wave our hands around and swear a lot. This Friday I had to pick up my aunt who was in the hospital all night due to gallstones. She had to pick up some money at the bank. So I'm parked, waiting by the door at the mall. Some old dude pulls up along side with a minivan and is pointing rather vigorously for me to get out of the way. I'm thinking to myself that there's plenty of room for him to get into the available handicap space however I grudgingly move about 5 centimeters.

    It takes the dude 5 minutes to park the damn thing. Of course he decides to vent by yelling at my closed window. All I can do is laugh at him at this point, which makes him even more angry. I roll down my window so I can hear him more clearly. He's going on and on about how he's going to scratch the car. I respond by saying "Nah, you're just going to stand there waving your arms about like an idiot". He then proceeds to take a picture of my license plate and tell me that I should expect a letter in the mail from the RCMP. "Ok, I'll make sure to look out for that along with fairies, leprechauns and unicorns". He then goes on an fbomb parade. Right when he's at the door I tell him to go fuck himself and have a nice day.

    It's a shame the elderly sometimes chose to resort to this behavior. It's a colossal waste of their time considering they have so little of it.

    To a certain point. I mean I am a teacher - I get the day off and I would not consider myself part of the luxury class.

    well the way he put the situation, it sounds like he is parked in a no-parking area right outside the mall's doors waiting for his aunt to come out while this dude is trying to get into a handicapped space. That makes him in the wrong, period. Then he laughs and is snarky and completely rude to the guy.
