So I'm at work today at Izzi's and I had to run to get some cheese and lettuce for the make line. when I came back with said cheese and lettuce, I set it on the counter and started opening the bags. My supervisor, H, came over and told me to get the stuff off of the counter and make room for the burritos he was making. Well, since there was nowhere else to put the cheese and lettuce, I told him that he was just going to have to make room somewhere else. That is when it got ugly. He said: "Man, you don't need to be talking shit! I'm not going to mess around with you like I do with the girls that work here. I'll slap you on your head!" Yup, believe it or not, this is my supervisor.Collapse )Who knows what will happen out of all of this, but it really was annoying.

Hey, all. Just wanted to tell you that I finally banninated that one guy. He was boring me. I think he actually resorted to the old "porn-in-the-feminist-community" thing. Meh, anyway, I think the world'll keep turning if Generic_Goth_Kid_Username isn't around anymore.

Okay, so I've been doing some job hunting recently. This has, for the most part, been a tedious and annoying process. However, the very worst of it happened a few days earlier when I did an interview for a sales position at HHGregg (you know, I would be one of those annoying people who jumps out at you and says "Can I help you find something today?!!!"). Read more...Collapse )
Needless to say that I didn't call back the next day.

False Support [Aug. 7th, 2006|01:49 pm]

So I was browsing the flist and I came across a "repost this!" kind of thing. I can see how some of it is good advice for guys* about girls, but there's a significant portion that reads as "false support." By that, I mean...they're trying to come across as "Good Guys/Boyfriends," but it's really just sexist language in disguise, where they assume the girl isn't capable of handling stuff by herself.

(*On a tangent, I'm also kind of disappointed by the obvious male hetero bent to the writing, though it comes across as a guide for this pretty quickly. Because, obviously gay/bi girls understand other girls, because they're girls! </endsarcasm>)

The text follows...Collapse )

I understand that there are some women who would enjoy a more traditional relationship, and that is okay. This is what choice is about, and my remarks to this is not an attack on them or the kind of relationship they prefer. Rather, it's an attack on the kind of (usually male) mindset that assumes that all girls need all of these things, and that you're a bad guy/boyfriend if you "let" her be independant enough to make and deal with her own choices.

R.I.P. snake [Jul. 20th, 2006|11:11 am]

I was walking downstairs at work to give something to my boss, and I overheard a conversation going on in the lobby between the desk attendent (same guy that talked down to me) and someone else whose voice I didn't recognize. The person I didn't know was telling this story about how someone she knew came outside and saw this big black snake in her driveway, and called some male (which is another rage and a half) to come out and kill it, which he did, and threw it in the woods.

And oh, hahahaha, it's so funny, because he killed it! The sum of this snake's life was to become the punchline to this very amusing anecdote. Oh my fucking god. It just infuriates me that humans just have such a flippant attitude about the life and death of animals, and that we abuse our power over them to the extent that it becomes FUNNY when we KILL them?! That snake was not going to hurt anyone. If it was a black snake, it was NOT venomous, because the only venomous snakes in this area are the cottonmouth/water moccasin and possibly the copperhead, which are not black; I'm sure the snake in question was just a garter snake. I bet that driveway was just soooo nice and warm and felt really good to lay on, you know? So just because that snake chose the wrong place to bask that day it deserved to DIE?? That's die as in GONE FOREVER. That's die as in all that snake's attempts to stay alive this long are for nothing, because some person can't stand the idea of having a big nasty snake on their property!

I really cannot stand people. I really just hate them.

Okaaaay! After about a hundred BILLION hours, I finally got all our rules ironed out and posted to the community. There's been a few changes since I posted last, so be sure to look over them. Sorry this has been so painstaking, and thanks for bearing with this little fledgling community. I have a feeling it's gonna be completely awesome. >D

Oh, and you have to be a member to post here now. And you have to be approved by a mod to gain membership. The engines can't take it, ship's breakin apart and all that. Just, yknow, FYI. Yeah, okay, I've been at this for too long. I'ma go... place.

Enjoy the new Ruled and Regulated 'Rat Rage.

Same 'Rat time, same 'Rat channel.

:/ What.

So I just ate like 20 zillion mini-Reese's cups (0.8g of protein in every cup! :D)

In other news, over the past few days, you guys have given me a completely awesome response to the question of how you wuld like the community to be moderated. Taking into account the responses and suggestions you guys have given me through LJ, AIM, over the phone and in person, I think this list'll do. It's not up in the user info yet, because I wanted to actually run the list by you before cementing it. I hope to have it all posted in a day or two, and when I post it, I'm planning on changing the community settings to where posting and commenting are members-only.

Anywya, after much ado, and a whole lotta word-processing, I give you 'Rat Rage Rules & RegsCollapse )

So that's it. I'm always up for suggestions, provided they don't ask me to change the primary purpose of the community (I mean, if we want a non-rage or non-safe community, we can always make another one).
