    I always worried what I would do if I were willed my family’s ranch and businesses, but now that’s probably moot.

    I'm not even looking to my Dad though. We get along great! But his wife was the bread winner. Even if she was down with splitting something with me, her family is notoriously ravenous and underhanded when it comes to inheritance. I think they've torn apart they're relationships multiple times over that kind of thing. I may make a cursory effort if available, but otherwise I'm not getting in the middle of their war for scraps. It ain't like my dad and his wife are rolling in dough.

    Hey Atomika. How did that session with your ma and the therapist go? Did you talk about it here? If not, that's cool. I was just wondering.

    many years ago i had a customer trying to play hardball with getting credit for a returned part she hadn't actually sent back yet

    and i calmly explained that i needed the part back before i could issue credit for several minutes

    but she wouldn't relent and kept getting shittier

    so finally i just said, "look, you fucking shithead, if you want your god damned credit you're going to have to send the fucking part back first" and hung up on her

    and apparently she was just offended that i said "god damned"

    they don't let me talk to customers much anymore

    Fucking clock museum.

    these clocks don't run themselves matt

    oh wait they do?

    well um

    I can't think of anything less useful than a clock museum.

    The guy spent 6 years building a building for it, some modern concrete and glass eyesore that doesn't fit the neighborhood at all, that he constantly had to go to court to fight over because of union grievances.

    Then the big retirement home across the street went up for sale, it's a 5 story L-shaped building, and he outbid the YMCA that was going to use it for low-rent housing, and he turned THAT into even more clock museum.

    And he's going to fill it with things that do a worse job telling time than the phone in my pocket does.

    Okay but

    Fuck people like that

    The world is full of people whose go-to phone move is "just be shittier and shittier" because they're relying on companies using phone people as sacrificial lambs until they eventually throw the angry customer some bone and it works often enough with no repercussions

    there's actually a kind of funny curve with new employees here where the first few months we get along fine and then they get comfortable and start making stupid demands and i snap at them and then there's like a year where they are afraid of me, and then everyone learns to not be stupid and we get along fine again

    i may not be the best person but it works for me

    If your performance review is being compared to theirs for raises/promotion harsh but fair, if they are your subordinates and your team is being evaluated based on your evaluation full points for all, unless you think you'll need to fire or lay off someone.

    You know. I hear that a ton around here. My buddy at work says fuck like it's going out of style. But won't say "GD" and gets uncomfortable when I say it. That girl I had a good run with last year also said something about it. I'll never get used to religious folks thinking that's the most offensive curse word.
