Post Things You Find Infuriating

Lingering longer for a longering linger
I'm going to repeat one that I posted not long ago because I just sat through it again recently: The cringey way the guys working the line at Moe's Southwest Tavern are trained to yell in unison "Welcome to Mooooooooooooes!!!....." at everyone who walks in the door. If you're there eating you'll hear it at least 12 times during lunch break hours. I would get fired for insubordination after one day because I'd refuse to do it.
 

THE FEZ MAN

as a matter of fact i dont have 5$
I responded to a South Jersey Reddit forum pointing out the minimum wage is about to jump to $15. When I commented how that was bad I was told not everyone can get raises and advancement and that isn't reality. When I foolishly claim everyone has the same opportunity and that their effort determines their worth I was promptly told that was a capitalist lie. Fuck Jersey.
I can’t stand those fuckers

I just had an interesting talk with my oldest daughter, she was working as a waitress and the other girls were catty about her tips. I said capitalism is you getting better tips for working harder, socialism is all the waitresses pool their tips because you're all equal. She finally gets it.

I wish I could have brigaded that thread with folks from The_Donald. I can't believe how dumb Jersey has become.

I didn't know Karl Marx originated the tip jar, or that it was such a threat to out national identity.

If everyone gets paid the same for doing the same fucking job, the libtard socialist feminazi Muslim-loving faggots win.

I've been rehired by a company I worked for in the past, the company is in the midst of a massive, overdue upgrade due to their spectacular growth. Apparently this means that many HR things have to be done online now on my own time, which would be fine if they had their shit together and the required forms could actually be completed online. I've spent the last 2 hours trying to get through it, with multiple calls to the HR dept and them trying to figure out what's wrong. The fact that I'm a rehire with an old start date of June 2006 has caused their new system to lose its shit and nobody seems to know what the fuck to do. I've contemplated throwing my iPad and my laptop across the room but that's not going to help. I need all of this done so I can move my tools and start next tuesday. This is a very inauspicious start to the next chapter in my career.

I'm only a couple of years behind you old man. If their system actually worked I probably could've done the whole thing on my phone. It's all fixed now, but it took way more effort than their dumb system is supposed to alleviate, which I suppose allows the dummy HR people to justify their job.

They want me to do "online training". It's a pain in the dick. I hate it.

I pay the kid in the shop 50 bucks to do it for me, while I sleep in my badass minivan in the parking lot. The kid can do it in 15 minutes, so 50 bucks in 15 minutes, and he's happy, and I justify 2 hours of work time, because "I'm old and and the gigabauds frighten me and it takes me a spell to do the computerin'"

I make 100 bucks sleeping to pay the kid 50 bucks. So I make 50 bucks for taking a sweet nap.

Learn the game, oldster.

Goddamnit! I'm in for a week or so of "orientation". I'll have to watch videos about falling off of a 4' ladder without fall protection and how dangerous operating a forklift can be. I'm sure they'll also toss in the training about "office safety" that gives instruction on how not to plug too many power strips into a single outlet because it's convenient. I can't sidestep it, it's part of the orientation. Fucking assholes.

The ones I have to do are always weirdly reversed.
“Cheryl has been showing more interest in Dave’s work but lately her interest has involved innuendo, jokes, and asking Dave out. Dave is uncomfortable with the attention and asks her to stop. Does Dave
A) Hide in the bathroom when Cheryl comes by
B) Unleash a beehive in the break room or
C) Consult with his supervisor or an HR representative.

Probably. It'll just be the new version of the old nonsense. It doesn't even matter if you abide by all of the rules these days. I've seen people fired over an unproven accusation. For 99% of people it's nonsense, they just want to work. That last 1% are the ones that might try to torpedo your career. They might even be triggered because someone doesn't acknowledge how hot they think they are, I've seen that as well.

A friend on FB suddenly decided that chem trails are real. And that I shouldn't be a "sheeple" for arguing otherwise.
What a hack. Its like she just got her So You Want To Be A Conspiracy Theorist Starter Kit in the mail after sending in three box tops of Frosted Sugar Bombs brand cereal
