    Good on him mate! Bloke's had it coming for a long time and delivered by his own son was no doubt just the wakeup call he needed. -;)

    Man I am so po'd right now. Company my wife has had 3 interviews with over the past month and a half, including a 100 mile round trip to their corporate office where she was praised no end, just got a rejection email!!!! 25+ years retail management experience and they've chosen a more suitable candidate. Read that, younger and male! :mad::mad::mad:

    I await the post in the gratitude thread about the great job she got, the one she wouldn't have known about if this one hadn't gone sideways

    I just found out three things today:

    a) I'm going to have to be put completely under before three teeth end up extracted, and the place that I have to go to is rather notorious for fooking things up

    b) My previous case manager retired while I was away (her official last day was Thursday, but she showed up last Friday) and I'm stuck with the caseworker who doesn't have a clue how to deal with me

    c) The handle to the coat closet came off in my hand last night (I think that it was because the woman who "helps" me keeps putting her coat on it instead of draping it over the back of a dinette chair as I keep asking her to.)

    Oh, and I told my caseworker that my landline/internet was disconnected last week, and she was "shocked". *headdesk*

    To Whom It May Concern,

    How many times do I have to tell you that I'm not into movies like tonight's "feature", Rush Hour? I would rather have all of my teeth extracted without general anesthesia or any numbing gel.

    Please leave me the fook alone, okay?

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Sherman Avenue is in the opposite direction of where the bus is going! We're going eastbound towards the public university's main campus, and Sherman Avenue's on the west side of town. Either you fell asleep on the bus or you don't know where the fook you're going!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    If someone's ahead of you in line to make a transaction with the campus transit personnel, wait your bloody turn. Better yet, put money directly on your bus pass, and you won't need to pay your "usual amount" (it's twice as much if 'you' don't use the 'stored value' feature on the 'credit card'-like bus passes for an all-day pass, which is why I almost always use the 'stored value' feature, plus it's easier to use that instead of fiddling with cash imho.)

    Another thing; I don't carry much cash on me, so I'm not about to give you what I have on hand, even without the personnel signaling me with a shake of the head. The remainder of my money's going on my student ID for incidentals to keep me from collapsing from low blood sugar.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    I'm not taking any classes in the main part of the Department of Health Services, therefore I'm not acquainted with the professor who was arrested last Sunday or Monday. Stop asking me if I knew him. (Relax StevePame, I'm not going to post the charges said professor is under [Maru the :kitty: and Hana the :kitty: videos are up to reciprocate your :kitty: video posting in case you're interested].)

    We have a word for a female human being. It is woman.

    Carry on, please.

    I refuse to watch the upcoming film in the community room (Primal Fear in case anyone's interested.) LEAVE ME THE FOOK ALONE.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    No, I don't have any money on me. You've asked me before, and the answer's exactly the same. BACK OFF.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    I'm allergic to dogs. Your dog is no exception. I don't want to die atm, thankyouverymuch. *headdesk*

    To Whom It May Concern #4,

    If you thought that the Republican debates during the last Presidential election caused needless chaos, just wait until the Democratic National Convention comes next year. I hope that everyone behaves appropriately with/around our guests, including you.

    I found a copy of the movie in the campus library. I might take it out for Thursday's upcoming flick (instead of the BS/MS/PhD mentioned above in the community room.) Thanks for the recommendation (the :kitty's are in the mail with their accoutrements, as usual.)

    To Whom It May Concern,

    There's a standing rule in the complex concerning wearing pajamas outside one's apartment in situations other than legitimate emergencies. It doesn't matter who you are. Please abide by that rule! If you don't understand the rule due to a language barrier, ask one of the neighbors or the management team who speaks your language to translate for you! Oh, and my peach-coloured bloomers are not pajama pants! Just ask an Orthodox Muslim woman!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I just got my telephone reconnected yesterday. Ditto my personal Internet connection. It wasn't that difficult after my telephone bill was paid (finally.) Why didn't you get them reconnected ASAP? I have two reasons that I need a landline (diabetes and cardiac arrhythmia [both legitimately diagnosed!]) Cell phones have two downfalls when it comes to 9-1-1 (the need for enough battery life, and the system isn't set up for the cell phone system yet.) Get on the ball!

    To Whom It My Concern,

    The pedestrian traffic light is automated until one AM and restarts around six AM. You don't need to push the button more than once, if at all. Pushing it doesn't speed up the cycle, and repeatedly pushing it can break it.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I'm not attending tonight's movie. Stop asking.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    You're a nursing student. Learn exactly what tests are for what part of the anatomy. Mammograms are not for prostate cancer diagnosis! (That's the least of the students' "mistakes"!) I feel sorry for your professor and for future patients if you don't shape up. Just be grateful that you haven't encountered me because I will bite.

    To Whom It May Concern #4,

    Stop trying to catch a glimpse of Tovarish! She will show herself if/when she wants, not before. If you want evidence of her existence, just look at her :kitty: condo. You've seen my [lack of] fingernails. I cannot tear up the fuzzy part on the scratching post portion, much less the sisal portion of said scratching post, plus I have to replace the scratching portion of the condo in a place that I cannot reach unless I'm on my belly. A$$/u/me that there's at least one cat in the apartment.

    To Whom It May Concern #5,

    Be grateful that you weren't fooking arrested for your stupid prank, attempting to steal the rental bikes on the public rack. You could be fooking banned from campus for your "joke", plus escorted off campus from the high school mock-United Nations event, not to mention your parents/guardians ending up paying for your prank in more ways than one. I'm old enough to be your grandmother, and I'm not above making sure you're punished in the proper way.

    Dude if you're gonna quit the training regimen, just have the guts to tell people to their face. Don't just count on your girlfriend's facebook acquaintance to tell a friend of your mentor that it isn't working.

    It's not as if I'm mad at you for being a busy person. A one-liner would be nice.

    You don't want to vote because 'It's a waste of time', don't kvetch to me about the results of today's election! I voted, and I'm legitimately "under the weather"!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Just because you belong to the LGBT+ communities doesn't mean that you have an encyclopedic knowledge of all musicals. I don't expect you to know everything about the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical Cats (unless you are/were a dancer/actor, and even then, not necessarily.) Stop kvetching!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Just because you're not familiar with a particular genre/art form doesn't mean that it's not legitimate (in this case, anime.) Besides, several anime have rather famous actors/actresses do the American English dubbing! Take your head out of your arse and do some fooking research! Plus not all titles can be mistaken for children's cartoons (there some titles that are actually banned due to their content!) Going with anime can mix up your Thursday night movie selections, plus I'm willing to help access several titles if you need (as can at least three other neighbors who are familiar with said art form, but I'm not going to volunteer them.)
