Getting tired of your bs, body. You know we can't use stuff like makeup or concealer so stop breaking out; we have enough trouble looking presentable as it is.
I hate feeling like in order to look presentable or professional at my job I'll have to wear makeup or subject myself to the trauma of flat-ironing my hair. I look at myself in the mirror everyday and while I can put together a nice outfit, my face and my hair never look professional, or grown-up enough, or like they even match the outfit somehow.

You know how some hotels leave a mint on your pillow? Think of it as a self-delivering macadamia.

>Dutch feminist journalism site
>90% is articles on pop culture and recycled American content instead of specific concerns such as the ongoing battles of sex worker feminists after that rescue industry doc, continue controversies over headscarves or even some kind of blogroll to other Dutch feminists
>click an article on why ironic misandry is not so bad
>"Jessica Valente", too many paragraphs wasted on a disclaimer on how the author defends her male friends against generalizations and generic translated part on how privilege makes dudes largely immune to the consequences without touching upon the elephant of ableism

I know I have a penchant for trying to outleft this type of content in order to take some of the points that would apply to me less to heart, but even with that streak taken into account this is just lacking.

Some people are fucking stupid. And argumentative for the wrong damn reasons.
If you feel you're too important to follow the simplest, clearest policy we have and need to con us to circumvent the fucking thing when what you think you need to do isn't important anyway, GTFO; seriously, go find another fucking building to sit in where they didn't have to put these rules in place thanks to people like you.
I'm not stupid, nor am I being unreasonable or mean or nasty, etc. we both know you wouldn't be arguing with me over something so inconsequential if you had made an honest mistake and weren't consciously trying to get over on me.
You're lucky I only started raising my voice slightly, as opposed to what I've wanted to say to people like you I've had to deal with over a lifetime in customer service; if you'd kept "trying to make me understand" your total bullshit, you would've had the earful.
God, it's not even noon yet.

No, phone, I do not want to learn to get the most out of my Nook app. The whole ereader experience is pretty self-explanatory, and your notifications are getting annoying.

I rush out of the house to get to class on time, skipping showing and throwing on a ratty T-shirt on because the rest of my clothes are in the drier and not ready. I show up to an empty clasd room and realize that I was being spacey and left and half hour early... Headsmack

I am so very tired and hungry but I haven't been able to take a break because there's always some other fucking thing that needs to be done. And when I actually delegate a task, the guy decides to take a long lunch before taking care of it, so the client calls me back to complain that the person who was supposed to call him hasn't called him yet.

Normally I love my job. I do not love today.

A major pet-peeve of mine is when somebody asks a dating advice question it is answered with generic self-improvement advice (go to the gym! Join a club! Talk to people everyday!) and nothing directly answering the question.

Self-improvement helps with dating a lot, but when somebody asks a specific question actually answer it with a specific answer!

When did the secret cabal meet and decide to eliminate peanut butter cookies? I like Nutter Butters, but that's not what we were asked to pick up. It's hard to resist conspiracy theorizing when an entire aisle of cookies has not one pack of peanut butter by any brand.

Dear hormones,

I understand that things are complicated since half of a major hormone producing system is having issues. Trust me, I am working on saving enogh money to get it gone. But for now, could you please stop dicking with my weight? First you had me up 15, now I am down 12 from where I was. Enough already.

Best,

Reboot

Idiot. What did I write the script for if I wasn't going to use it? Damn it, I am the wrong person to talk to about these kinds of things.

I know you need somebody to talk to about this kind of thing,
I was supposed to say,
and I don't think you're wrong and I'm not angry. I am only walking away from this conversation because of stuff I can't handle.
So, no, choosing to try to "handle" it anyway was the wrong call. It was only passively sitting there but it was still a choice and an action and it was the wrong one.

Next time, remember the damn script.

We've been having trouble with the mailperson delivering our packages to the same number a street over, and us getting mail from the houses up and down our street as though the mailperson can't count or read (it happens on a regular basis). While trying to find a way to make a complaint, I keep seeing everywhere that people's responses to a mailperson not doing their job correctly are to just pay for a PO Box, or become friendly with the carrier and make them cookies. It bothers me that the solution to someone not doing the job they are paid to do is to give them nice things and be friendly, or just come out of your pocket and pay for something else, especially when it's cases like mail being delivered to the wrong addresses on a almost weekly basis or misplacing bill payments.

Mother I find it stupid that you think it's perfectly ok and correct to call someone because you forgot to ask her in person if she's pregnant again, and get bothered by me saying "oh my god" in exasperation when you do it. Yes you've had kids before and been overweight, that doesn't mean you always know when weight gain = pregnant - and you definitely don't ask someone that when they're already feeling upset and mention the weight they've gained. Fuck it gets me upset and I only have to hear about it.

I just found out my aunt died. While it should never come as a surprise that someone over 70 died, it still gut punched me. I just saw her a month or so ago and she was so.....vital, I guess. Now I am worried that my uncle will die soon too, since they were an incredibly tight couple.

Thanks, enail. Apparently she just fell and died, so totally out of the blue. It has knocked my uncle on his ass because she was the healthier of the two so he expected to go first Crying

Politically fraught rant:
Why the fuck does MLK get invoked as some kind of unarguable lawgiver to all Black people every single goddamn time they get sick of being murdered in droves by the state? Jesus Christ, where are the patronizing "what would John Adams do" finger-waggings every time white people fuck up property because their sports team lost a sports game? When did every Black person become beholden to the oversimplified words of a man murdered by the same apparatus that's still murdering them? "When nonviolence begins halfway through the war with the aggressor calling time out, it exposes itself as a ruse."
