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!

Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays

    hey buddy nice work. This is about giving blood so don't read it if you dont wanna.

    sweeet interview on the 1st Feb for the Welsh Assembly Stats Department.

    A 40minute test, followed by a 30 minute interview (kicked off by a 5 minute presentation, by me, on some stats I need to take from their website).

    Need to go out and buy a suit as well.

    e: I am really not looking forward to the presentation though I am a god awful public speaker.

    Attention all college students:

    If you have parents or guardians please call them for at least two minutes once a week so I don't have to put up with them.


    THANK YOU.

    Unfortunately I get phone calls from Campus Safety and then I have to go do something called a "wellness check" on the resident.

    I want to shake every stupid freshman I meet until I can hear their teeth rattling around.

    This has not been a good week and I'm stuck with the phone until Monday morning. If anyone of these kids is too stupid to keep their crap together tonight my RA's are going to have some very interesting quotations from me to put in their reports.

    I get a 15 hour shift tomorrow, because, unfortunately, one guy is in the hospital. Will it be all that bad? Nah.

    Just as an aside: In my foray into getting preorders for some new games, I found the Mega Man X Collection for the PS2 and Wind Waker. I am happy.

    Yeah it gets weird when work relationships form. I'm a manager and theres a girl who works under me who very openly has a crush on me. She texts me all the time, and posts on my facebook, and my boss is not very happy with me, but I already told her as her manager this is inapporporiate but she won't stop.

    I always avoid work relationships by being intensely unattractive to everyone around me.

    Yep. It's totally on purpose.

    I just couldn't deal with the incredible amount of gossip!! the girl I do have a crush on is bisexual? I don't even care about her sexual orientation, I just start to hear inter-department drama and my mind almost immediately goes to that double rainbow video.

    This is not the first time that you've had issues with older more maternal members of the opposite sexy coming onto you.

    It's the crocs, isn't it?

    I just asked a store employee to unplug the power cable to a printer to get it reset.

    The person goes and unplugs the parallel cable that runs between the printer and the store's main tower.

    Power cables are usually little black cables that are plugged into a wall.

    They don't go to a computer.

    ARGH!

    ARGH!

    Every time I start a class in the mornings (When the computers have been turned off because having 10 computers on over night is expensive) I have to remind my students (Old people) that no, the little light on the monitor does not mean that the computer is on, you need to actually press the button on the computer itself.

    Don't even get me started on logging in using a password that has a whopping amount of two capitalized letters.

    Sometimes teaching these people seems like a losing battle. The few that will learn something will be held back by the ones that keep forgetting how to do the most simple tasks. But maybe I'm just a bad teacher?

    Oh, there's a lot of times we'll have to repeat that the power button they're pushing simply turns off the monitor or that just because it's saying "no signal" as the device is rebooting doesn't mean the monitor is broken.

    I also just had to teach someone how to input gift cards into the system correctly using the exact same manual they have there at the stores.

    Performance review!
    I have to fill out the comments section for each category on it... then I guess my boss will give me a score? Also had to give him the list of stuff I've done.

    After all that we'll sit down for the actual review. Woo
