I swear to Saint Fuck and the Seven Devlish Dicks that getting what you need out of ebay becomes more and more of a pain in the ass every year.

When the hell is someone finally going to eat their lunch?

But recently I've picked up the habit of calling legal sized sheets 11x17s even though that is an existing different size of paper, just because our big printer broke years ago and it's become standard for the boss to ask for them and get legal (the biggest we can currently print). And it is actively hampering my ability to communicate.


Very similar to how Starbucks started calling a vanilla-caramel flavored latte a macchiato, even though that was already an existing different espresso drink. Thus causing baristas at real coffee shops to get yelled at by customers who order said drink.

Daughter was home for five minutes. Now look, I'm a reasonable person. I understand that life is busy, I'm fine with coming home to some washing up in soak, it's just the one sink, but... Why.

There's plenty of room under there. The bowl is floating. Why.

Okay. Okay, okay.

Okay.

Internet.

I like you. Mostly. But we need to have a talk.

A compatriot is someone who is from the same country as you.

Someone who works with you is a colleague.

There. It's not that hard.
