If whats happening in Ferguson was happening to an all white community, it would be called a dystopian novel
#and all actions against the police would be heroic and daring#and the plucky white protags would be encouraged to use violence to stop the injustice
It’s literally what happened in V for Vendetta.
Please fire me. The senior partner at our firm badgers us about meeting our billable hour requirement while our office manager wastes our time with passive aggressive “memos” about the refrigerator: “Seriously folks, let’s keep the refrigerator clean. You spill, you clean. The unclaimed food items circled in the attachment have been in the refrigerator for over a week. Please throw out your old, dried up food. Join the effort to maintain a clean environment for your food.” I’m pretty sure we can find someone who doesn’t bill $240 an hour to throw away an old sandwich.
You know what, no. That’s bitchy. Clean up after yourself, don’t expect someone else to do it. I don’t care what your fucking position is. No one is too important to ACT LIKE A HUMAN BEING. Grow the fuck up.
Normally I really sympathize with the submissions on this blog because I too have a shitty job, but this one I just don’t understand. This isn’t about having a shitty job, this is about someone being a whiny asshole because they were asked to have respect for a communal area. Are they saying they can’t meet your billable hours because you have to clean up after themselves? Because that’s fucking arrogant. Be a grown up, throw away your own trash. Jeez.
Exactly, it’s literally someone saying they’re too important/rich to have to throw away their own trash. That’s absurd and infuriating. Do they expect the manager to hire a fridge cleaner to clean the fridge once a week rather than them just tossing their own damn sandwich? Entitlement at its peak.
Since I’ve been getting a fair number of messages asking me about my pregnancy, I figured I’d just make a text post about it so I can stop explaining myself to everyone haha.
I was looking into some research about how long it takes to get pregnant after going off the pill and it looks like older studies with much higher levels of hormones showed delayed returns of fertility but newer studies are saying that people can get pregnant pretty much immediately.
"Reproduction after discontinuing COCP was once thought to be delayed in early British and American studies using older, higher dose COCP products (Vessey et al., 1978; Speroff and Fritz, 2005)."
-Misconceptions about oral contraception pills among adolescents and physicians
"Some women conceive immediately after they stop taking the pill. While the pill doesn’t cause fertility problems, it does mask problems that were already there, such as irregular periods. As soon as you come off the pill, you can get pregnant. It’s therefore important to use another form of contraception, such as condoms, straight away."
-NHS: When will my periods come back after I stop taking the pill?
My dad had an Edward Gorey alphabet book when we were kids (he probably still has it). I don’t think he ever specifically read it to us but I distinctly remember getting it off the shelf to look carefully through all the pictures multiple times. I wonder what effect this had on little me…
Please fire me. No one is calling in today so my coworkers are talking in detail about why they think the moon landing was staged.
Mine spent today talking about how Whitney Houston was murdered by an unknown person (for some unknown reason) who forced her to take a bunch of drugs, killed her and then bribed the coroner. This was followed by a discussion of the Illuminati and Free Masons. They evidently rule the whole world and include members such as Beyonce, Obama and Bush. When I questioned how such a group could have Obama and Bush in it, I was condescendingly met with statements about how “politics” work. Any questions I asked about how the whole world could possibly be in on something when countries are constantly fighting were immediately dismissed.
