Would you take them at the cost of your phone blowing up with random bullshit for hours? If I was a specific kind of pervert it'd be fun to know all of my co workers shoe sizes, but I'm not that kind of pervert.

Also not a fan of blasting my phone number out to everyone I work with.

Edit: Yeah, it's turned creepy because a lot of people listed their shoe size and name instead of just whether you buy mens or womens shoes, and I'm learning coworkers opinions about the size of womens feet.

I have 50 new text messages because of his dumb poo poo. I might have to change my cellphone number.

pretty much within the first year I entered the workforce, I learned never to mix my personal life with business life, and got a burner phone number to give my (then) employer. times change, but I still have a google voice and skype number I give out to anyone who "wants my cell"

highly recommend you go this route. gently caress that noise, 50 text messages? ffs. reply all with the name of your least favorite coworker and "UNSUBSCRIBE"

Lol, place I used to work is still advertising my old position 2 years later. Except now they are saying they are a Michelin star restaurant(they aren't).

The place I left had to completely eliminate an entire tasting menu because they can't keep up anymore. I wonder if it ever crossed their minds that if they keep treating employees like poo poo that anyone competent would leave and they won't have anyone left who can get poo poo done.

E: oh yeah, I left that five diamond resort job and am going back to school for engineering. Now I'm part time at a chill little restaurant that gets rave reviews despite dubious food quality and a building made in the 30s out of what I'm guessing is wood and cardboard.

So my boss asked one of the servers to type up some names/descriptions for our new specials. She handed this to me and asked me what I thought about it.



All I could manage to say was "It's fine and I hate it so much." Something about bacon and cheddar infused meatloaf broke my brain and I couldn't look at it without laughing hysterically. Like I was laughing so hard it just came out as a barely audible wheeze.

It's golf puns, so I imagine it's at a golf course, so expensive Applebee's seems like an appropriate description.

A menu that actually lists how the dishes are prepared and includes adjectives. Makes me all nostalgic. Over here 90% of menus just lists a few ingredients in an austere manner since a good seven or eight years back.

Cod, nastrium, wood sorrel
Capercallie, rutabaga, spruce bark,
Colostrum, cloudberries

If I saw that on a menu I'd laugh my loving rear end off then order the bacon cheddar meatloaf.

In other news, did you guys know how easy it is to get prescription narcotics? Followed up with my doc after all these concussions, cognitive testing showed that I've probably had ADD my whole life and just managed to skate by on just being "very smart" according to the Neuropsychologist. So I get 10mg Adderall XR and I go back in 2 weeks to see if I want to up it to 20.


Have all the stimulants you want, but opiates are like trying to break into fort Knox. I had to get a DNA test to show that I carry a gene that makes me extremely tolerant to opiates(apparently it's common in people with blue eyes). Before that only my Primary doc would believe codiene does nothing for me.


In other other news, I open a 1k room convention hotel with 5 outlets, room service, and banquet Nov 2nd. Pretty pumped.

There's a reason doctors might be a little more cautious about prescribing high strength opiates than other narcotics. Yes people can and do abuse Adderall nowhere near as much.

AFAIK, Adderall is not a narcotic. Narcotic is synonymous with opiate, whereas Adderal is basically speed.

That said, yes, it way too easy to get and way overprescribed.

I see what you're saying. However, I've been extremely productive since I started taking it, so I'm gonna stick with my legal speed that I may not necessarily need, but definitely will give me an edge in my career.

This confused the gently caress out of me until I realised you meant "stimulant" by "narcotic", given what you more or less said was "narcotics are really easy to get, but narcotics are incredibly hard to get!"

Well, I do also have an endless supply of "take as needed" benzos. So those are easy to get, apparently.

They were supposed to get a free meal, but it took them months to cash it in.

holy gently caress I was laughing at the subtle lack of grammar/spacing between the pitch & "putt"roast (oddly consistent, I thought) for about 5 minutes until I realized it was just a play on "pot roast" (mind the gap) and that the horrible spacing was intentional
