I hate to say this, but it isn't just localized either- I find rampant crap in all industries, as I am sure we all do, but I find it particularly offensive to find it in the hospitality industry in which I work.....

..something my 5th Grade teacher said in a story she related once just popped into my head.


She was talking about how glad she was to be working in a more suburban school district, when she had come from a more rural one. she related to our class that some of the students would have to get up early to tend to the farm duties, but because the busses came earlier due to the longer routes, they would go right from farm duties to getting on the bus.


Subsequently, would come into class smelling like the farm.


This was a huge issue to her... apparently, her nose was more special than anyone else's and she shouldn't have had to deal with such odors, considering this was the result of these families' LIVELIHOOD.


Fuck, that woman pissed me off. Even today. the memories of her constant bitchiness still manages to irk me. She had no right teaching 10 year olds... or any age group for that matter.

Some teachers are like that - they really don't care about the kids themselves, or what their families have to do to survive or pay bills. They don't have to dirty themselves at all, and don't care who else does as long as they don't smell the stench from it. I have had a few of those myself.

Honestly, she was just a miserable wench. I remember we had a fire-drill that some of the kids in the class didn't take all that seriously. When we returned to the classroom she screamed at the whole class that we don't know what it's like to be in an actual fire where people are burned and smell the burning flesh and to see the firemen carrying out lumps of charcoal that used to be people.. and..etc..etc... she went on for quite a while about it.

B: Ok, seven-three-nine-four-two.


I: Ok, so whadarwe doing ondis requist?


B: The end-user has requested we swap out his phone to a new 8434. He currently has a 4-wire phone, so I need to move him from a 4-wire port to a 2-wire port.


I: Ok. Soooo... rightnow dee enduser is on port ondavidtree and a nine.


B: Right, so I need to move his connection to a 2-wire port.


I: Ok. Leemme see here... howabout port ondavidtree and a one and a one?


B: One-delta-zero-three-one-one is on the same switch card. That's a 4-wire card.


I: Ok.


B: I need a two-wire port.


I: I see... ok, how aboudennnn... ondavidnine and a seven?


B: That is still a 4-wire card. It's a 754 series. I need something from a 2700 series.


I: Ok.


B: How about something like, one-bravo-zero-six-one-zero?


I: I see dat is an analog port.


B: No, my switch config says it is a 2700 series card which would be all digital.


I: Ok. But we cannot use an analog port for a digitaphone.


B: But the switch config says it is a digital card.


I: Yes.


B: So, can you move the port to this one?


I: No, I cannot put it on an analog port


B: (counting to 10)


I: I can put it on ondavidtree and a nine.


B: But isn't that a 4-wire port?


I: Yes.


B: But we're installing a 2-wire phone.


I: Yes.


B: So I can't use that one.


I: Ok.


B: So do you see any available TWO wire ports?


I: Leemmesee... I have onbaker and a six and a ten.


B: Great, can you move the phone to that port please?


I: Yes. Ok, it is all done.


B: Great, thank you. I will call you back if something isn't working.


I: Ok, tank you. *click*




So I go and move all the wiring to the new port, install the phone.. and... no dial tone.


I go to check the switch config... and whaddayaknow, the port got switched to one-delta-zero-three-zero-nine.


*shakes head*


So I logged into the switch as the admin, which I'm not even supposed to know how to do and moved the port by myself...

Support from India?

Nothing against other peoples, but outsourced support services in India really.. only... support India. They're not actually giving us any support.


I get these calls from my new contractor's support desk in India... they leave me voicemails like...


"Dees is (incomprehensible name mumbled) from (company name support) end we have an urgeent reequist for suppurt we nedjorelp weet. In reequist number (mumbled at 100 mph) onedoodoofarseatfardoodooohseatoh at uffish fir a sweech move end we needju to call me at (mumbled at 100 mph) treeohnesevetwotreeseatonihnih extenshon sevohnefihseveohn. Please call, deesis very urgeent."


Uhhh... I didn't agree to be "on call" on a whim. The location is a 30 minute drive and I have to schedule my days very tightly lately. Urgent is the plant is going to blow up. Someone's phone doesn't have dial tone - not urgent. They'll get by for a day.


I'm not trying to make fun of them, but if you want to work with an English speaking company and you don't speek English... slow the fuck down.

...strange when facebook tells my business profile it should be friends with my alias profile...


In other news, first thing that popped up on Facebook this morning was a notification that a former collaeague is now friends with... *shudder*... Brad...


The infamous Brad.


Since I was just speaking with another former colleague this morning about what a douche this guy actually was... that too seems a bit ironic.


I guess his incident with sawing off part of his thumb must have changed him a bit - he looks a little different. Still a big block for a skull, but now he has this huge five-head thing going on... literally, you could show a movie on his face, his forehead his so big.

...keep it in mind people... words on the internet... they're only as powerful and meaningful as you allow them to be.


Meanwhile, I'm listening to CNN... annoyed with a headline story they keep repeating about a wildfire that was started when someone accidently dropped a lit lighter (and then repeated the same way with audible shame and annoyance in the reporter's voice) while smoking marajuana.


Ok, wildfires suck... but is this a headline because of the fire or because the people smoking marajuana? Wildfires start all the time in California, probabably quite often for stupid reasons... I never hear it reported.

Fires are never a good thing but this is a 14 year old child.

I totally agree. If you walked up to someone in a bar and said, "Hey, whats up?" what would their response be? Probably... "Nothing much... excuse me, I'll be returning to someone else that interests me..."



Yet here, people somehow expect "hey, whats up?" to be the ultimate ice breaker and from there the other person should just stream the interrogative statements of interest...



"Hey, what's up?" should be reserved for someone you already have a close bond to and perhaps you haven't spoken to in a while. And it should be followed up with something more interesting, like, "Hey! What's up? Haven't spoken to you in a while. I just invented this negative energy dark matter accelerator and I am planning on taking over the world. Want to join me? There's a good chance it will end in death, but if it doesn't... think of how often we'll be getting laid! Who can resist the supreme rulers of the world? I know I couldn't!"

"Thank you for you time with us, thank you for your meat, it was good getting to know you, but now I must eat!"



Then.. chop chop chop. :)



I dunno... When I lived in upstate NY and went to one of the SGT's farms to help fertilized his lawn, I was amazed at how many chickens were running around there and when he told me he caught his own turkey every November I was more fascinated than I was disgusted. As in... I wanted to be there when it happened. Not for the shock value but more of the curiosity and learning factor.



I must say though, meat caught or grown opposed to store bought tasted a lot better.

I'm sure you (generically, you) have had chicken in your life time. They come from somewhere. The difference is our chickens aren't penned up in little cages - they get to roam, spread their wings, run around, eat good organic food and generally live a happy little chicken life.


We respect them and take good care of them and in the end, we know they meat we get from them will be good for us as well.


That's life.


In the words of some famous wise guy... this is necessary.

It was normal when I was growing up. My grandparents used to get the baby chicks in the mail in a huge box. It was soooo cool to have them chirping and running around...then they grew up and gave us eggs and meat. Even feathers for the pillows sometimes. It is the cycle.

I know I know. It's just when I'm asking a model to interact with them, I would rather skip the whole "oh my gawd that's so saaaaaaad." routine from Sally LizloveKFC.

It's the cute factor. Nobody wants to envision a sweet little chick, or any cute animal, on a plate served for dinner. I understand where the food comes from, but I still think the chicks are adorable!

Most baby animals are adorable. Baby cows are adorable. Baby pigs are adorable. Everything we eat begins as a baby, that's the way life works.



People might not want to envision it, but that is reality.

Oh yeah - I actuaaly will not eat any young/baby animals, so no veal or lamb for me.

We don't process them when they're babies, they're pretty much to adult size when they go in.



And yes, it is quick and as painless as possible. We take them to an FDA certified processor and make sure everything is done right.



I even have a little prayer with the chickens before hand where I touch each one and thank them for giving me food and happiness in my life...

So in other words you basically say to them:



"Thank you for you time with us, thank you for your meat, it was good getting to know you, but now I must eat!"



Then.. chop chop chop. :)



I dunno... When I lived in upstate NY and went to one of the SGT's farms to help fertilized his lawn, I was amazed at how many chickens were running around there and when he told me he caught his own turkey every November I was more fascinated than I was disgusted. As in... I wanted to be there when it happened. Not for the shock value but more of the curiosity and learning factor.



I must say though, meat caught or grown opposed to store bought tasted a lot better.





 

Huh.

You claim to be smart? You couldn't even come up with creative names for your multiple accounts.


Seriously man, go read a book or something. Your mom should be restricting your computer time as it is...


..failed parenting sucks for all of us.

...look! Look at me! I'm writing in my journal!


It must be because I'm a follower... or something.


Or maybe just because... you know... I'm a member of this site and I do make use of the site features and stuff once in a while.


Could that be it? Hmmmm....

No, no.. it's not conforming... it's following. Apparently if you write in your journal you're just a sheep following the rest of the sheep through the corral... or something of the sort.



I don't know... this is someone else's opinion, not mine...

...I am often asked by other members for help with functions of the website here on VR. Most of these requests, the answers can be found in the VR Manual or via other resources on the site.


Occassionally, I point out one of these resources, provide the link, point the member in the right direction (regardless of how much of a double entendre that may be) and the member then gets upset that I don't give them the steps or the directions directly.


Well, let's think about this for a minute. These directions are already written out. You can read them where they are... or I can re-type them and you can read them from me. Either way, you still have to read it, learn it and do it. It's a website... it's not like I can sit over your shoulder and point at things or direct you where to click every step of the way.


And if this is really how you feel about a website you want to be a member of... I can just imagine, you must be a hoot for the people at the DMV...

This happens because certain people are lazy and want everything done for them.



What I find funny is when someone asks a question that's already answered in the VR Manual or FAQ then post a thread: how can I help with the site? Or ask me: What did you do to become a Dominar, can I be one too?
