Our kitten ran right in front of me on the stair yesterday and I tripped and slid down a few steps and banged up my knee. She’s perfectly fine, of course.
Trying to cancel my gym membership (finally, I haven’t gone in a year but I’ve been paying! sunk cost fallacy!) and I got a response that is making me feel guilty and like I’m giving up on ever being healthy again
Their business model is based on only ~10% of members actually using the facility - cancel with no shame, they are greedy bastards .
You have so many more ways to be fit than paying for a gym membership you dont use!
They are just manipulating you! Cancel it!
Interacting with the American medical system, interacting with the American insurance system, and really godawful jazz covers of Christmas music as bad quality hold music and omg this horn is hurting my ear on the high notes.
Also I really love how their robot informed me before I could even make any selections on the phone about how there’s a state of emergency declared for Hurricane Idalia so we can get our meds before the hurricane if we need to. Idalia rolled through in early September.
I saw a post on LinkedIn from a previous boss who is in a C-suite position (in an industry I’m no longer in) saying something along the lines of “It’s no secret that our industry has a problem with a lack of diversity.”
This is the boss who when I asked him if he could please stop calling things “gay” when he meant they were stupid/bad/uncool, did not in fact stop, but did start including fake over-the-top apologies to me after he said it. So, like, we’d be in a big meeting and he’d say, “That ad is so gay. Oh, I’m soooorrrry, Ramona. That ad is so stupid. Is that better?”
(And then for an added bonus, he gave me the only non-steller annual review of my life where he said he didn’t have complaints about my actual work but I wasn’t a good “cultural fit”.)
Gee, I can’t imagine why you have a problem attracting and retaining a diverse workforce.
Flames. Flames on the side of my face.
I also had a boss once, a thousand years ago, who asked me
if I thought an engineer who had sent in a resume was a (insert location) (insert racial slur) based on his name alone and then laughed and laughed.
They did not interview him.
Getting laid off from that job was the best thing ever.
I should start keeping a list of these to read when I mistake and feel like a crappy boss. Maybe I didn’t give someone enough direction on a project but did I say (slur)(racist)(homophobic)(sexist)(slurry slur slur)? No I did not.
My gym is closed Thursday - Sunday this week. I suck at getting exercise without easy access.
I just paid $9.99 for a bottle of store brand NyQuil. Actual NyQuil was $12.99!
Marmalade fried the charger of his electric shaver because it’s only meant for 120V and he tried to use it in India.
It’s 13 years old so I think I’m going to give it away (with a brand new foil!) and just buy him a new one.
Idk if I have enough time to nap today, my only true day off
My gig has probably messed up my pay for Oct’s work, but I can’t ask about it until the second week of Dec because technically they have 30 days to pay me. But every time they haven’t paid me by the 20th it’s been late.
So if I’m going to cash flow my credit card, as is my preference, I’ll need to pay my credit card in Dec instead of Nov and mess up my spreadsheets.
Shoppers Drug Mart has lost J1’s prescription.
This is the fourth error in about four months.
It’s time for a new pharmacy
We disconnected and moved our washer and dryer and vent in order to make small repairs and clean before the new all in one washer/dryer (ventless) is delivered Friday because we don’t want to deal with it tomorrow because we have plans for Thanksgiving. Costco inexplicably cancelled the order today, two days after it was ordered. The reason on the cancellation email says either there was a problem with my credit card or with my delivery address. I called the credit card company and there is no issue on their end, and that everything was authorized correctly.
The delivery address and details in my Costco account are also correct. I called Costco customer support and they said it’s a system glitch, but will not happen again. They had me place the order again while I was on the phone so they could verify everything was good. Unfortunately, now the soonest delivery is Monday.
Girl Kitty found a way to sneak inside the entertainment center we just bought. She got stuck and I had to pull her out by her rear.
Then Boy Kitty decided that looked like fun and did the exact same damned thing.
We left shopper’s due to so many errors. Now out new perfect pharmacy is errorful and I don’t know what to do.
Last month they gave him 27mg Concerta instead of 18mg. This month they’ve lost the paper. A few months ago I picked up J2s Desmopressin and they gave me a lecture about not shaming him for needing it (he is 12, we have been on this journey a damn long time, it’s a) too late if I was b) awfully bold of them to assume I would? C) really none of their business as long as it doesn’t conflict with other drugs). Last week I tried to pick up the Desmopressin that they never notified was ready, and apparently they had reahelved it.
They are conveniently located, but we’ll try the place across the road or by husband’s work.
