A Quiet Place 2 opened last night and a friend already sent me a screen shot where I am completely on screen - except not facing the camera. HAHA!

That baseball game was boring as shit anyway.

And a happy 15th Anniversary of my being a member of Vampire Rave, to me. Yay.

I just got a trade to Limbus for a bunch of accounts as old, or almost as old as mine. All inactive for many years, some over a decade.

And this is why I'm alone here.

This conversation is a trap, isn't it?

So it looks like this contract might extend through the summer.

I don't know if I like that, or hate it.

Local Media Journalist: "Hey, I'm doing a story on XXXXX and I would love to use your images and video of XXXXX as part of it. Would you give me permission to do so? Of course you will get full credit!

Me: Sure, you have m permission. Credits can be written as: THIS SPECIFIC STUDIO NAME I AM GIVING YOU

Local Media Journalist: Great, thank you!

Credit as published: SOMETHING IRRELEVANT GIVING YOU



You literally could have just copied and pasted it from the email. This isn't that hard. Not getting that correct is completely unprofessional, and disrespectful.

"But those $7.25 jobs are menial jobs. Why should someone make $15/hr doing them?"

You think it's a menial job? How menial is it if you can't fill that position and thus can't service your customers? Or have to close your doors like a 70-year old hot dog stand has to around here?

If you think it's menial, and you act like it's menial, anyone you hire into it will treat it like it's menial. You expect performance, someone to treat that job like it is as important to them as it is to you, but you want to reward them with about $30 for their shift?

I recall my days in retail, (a long, long time ago) being a front end supervisor, having to balance every cashier's drawer, counting out tens of thousands of dollars in sales for their shift, knowing my entire cashier line cumulatively earned about $125 dollars for the night. For ALL of them, combined.

It is obscene what this country expects from its citizens.

After hearing stories from some (male) friends who got rejected from serving positions, it occurs to me that the demographic the "no one wants to work anymore" crowd is searching for is actually making more money from OnlyFans, and doesn't want your shitty restaurant jobs....

Boy, do people who "run" businesses get angry when you shoot down their ideas of "No one wants to work."

No, Karen, no one wants to work for you.

One, you're not even trying. Two, you don't deal with potential applicants or even those inquiring, as I did, with any sort of transparency or even tact.

You're doing this wrong. It isn't the government's fault you can't find applicants, it's your fault that you're not even doing the bare minimum to make the job you're trying to fill seem worth applying for.

More and more people continuing on the debate of "no one wants to work."

Are you fucking kidding me? It's not about the unemployment benefits. It's about the fact more businesses have no clue how to treat their workers fairly. Never have.

I'll take an example from when I was young, and working in retail. Typical day at work:

"Hey, so and so called in. Think you can cover their job, too?"

"Sure, boss."

What did agreeing to that ever get me? A promotion? A raise? Fuck no! All it did is let management see me as the guy who will bail them out when others failed. No stress on them - all the stress was on me.

The conversation should have gone like this:

"Hey, so and so called in. Think you can cover their job, too?"

"Hey, sure thing. As long as I get their hourly pay, too."

Because the minimal rate I'm being paid to do my job is what the company has decided my job is worth. And the rate so and so was getting paid to do that job was what the company decided that job was worth. If you believe both are necessary, then I should get paid for both. If your argument is "You'll only do that other one when you have down time on yours" then my counter is, I'd have that down time on mine regardless. It is factored into the value of the job. If you don't like it, then call someone in to do the other job and I'll stick to just doing mine, as I was originally scheduled to do.

However, you know that answer was going to result in:

1. Hours being cut
2. Getting scheduled for the worst jobs and time slots
3. Being fired for insubordination

I'm on the side of the ones getting their UI and refusing shitty job opportunities. It's like an unofficial, non-union strike across america.

Businesses can figure out the obvious compromise, or go under. This is the free-market capitalism so many of them wanted. Now the workers hold the supply, if the business community truly have the demand, then they need to pay the going rate.

Besides, we all have paid into that UI all our working lives. That what safety nets are for. Protect the people when the economy or the market itself goes to shit, and that has already happened about every 8-10 years of my life, and every 7 years on average this century.

People just need to get back to work and stop being leaches to unemployment.

Corporations need to start paying all of their employees a living wage and stop being leeches on society, and the government.

Make sure you're salting the right leeches.

After all, how many labor laws needed to be created because the workers were taking unfair advantage of businesses, versus businesses taking advantage of the people they employed? That ratio is about zero to sideways 8.

I love this continuing attitude in America that the survival of capitalism means more than the survival of individuals.

"We have a labor shortage! No one wants to work!"

Huh. Tough shit, dumbass, you created this. Maybe you better pick up the slack yourself.

Former clients contacting me to ask if I remember their email address they were using over a decade ago.

Maybe the ouija board will tell me.... since, it's obviously dead.

Why do women use smoothing filters on a photo of their vulva?

I think we all kind of expect there to be some wrinkles there. Who you trying to trick?
