Y'know, you would think someone 26 years old knows how to take a hint...
…but you’d be dead wrong. Over and over, no matter how many times I tell you to stop, you don’t. I’ve even gotten angry and verbally violent with you, but it does no good. I’ve done all I can do to get you to just leave things alone, it doesn’t matter to you, I guess. Hey, just like when we were going out, all about what you want.
No matter how much I don’t respond to your texts, emails, and IMs, you keep on sending them. It’s like a broken record, and not even an interesting one at that. I don’t need you to tell me to “have a good day today” every day, nor do I need it at all. You would think someone your age would realize to just give up. Boy was I wrong.
I probably should have just blocked you and been done with it, but then how could I deny my friends the amusement of laughing at your constant barrage of IMs with terrible nonsense grammar. I guess it’s a pretty passive aggressive thing to do, as is this blog post, but eh whatever. I think I’m entitled.
So yeah, I’m kinda fed up with my Post Office. In the last month or so they’ve apparently lost three of my eBay packages I’ve sent off to people. One to Brazil, one to France, and one to New York. The New York one is the most baffling because it’s just New York and really how do you screw that up?
So I’ve had to start giving out refunds and that does not make me happy because I’m out money and the item. I’ve sent stuff off from this post office for years. So many that everyone who works there know me by name. I’ve never really had a problem until now. It really sucks.
Although I did just buy Sonic and Knuckles for $3 on XBLA tonight. So maybe today’s not all bad.
So yeah, Walmart decided they wanted to give me a head start on my vacation in two weeks by shorting me a day of work that week. I guess that’s good? I only have 31 hours that week now and I’m full time, but whatever. I’m ready for a break.
It’s 4th of July Holiday that week too so I’m supposed to get holiday pay for the 4th. Guess that’s another reason to give me an extra day off. Oh Walmart, keep on finding ways to nickel and dime your employees. It’s so charming.
I just got through watching the Ubisoft E3 press conference and holy shit, it was the worst/best thing I’ve ever seen. It was like a French fever dream. Lazer Tag, Red haired hippie man talking about vitality sensors and breathing while getting calm with your Wii, a Michael Jackson dance thingy that was not promoting Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker 2, Joel McHale and others relaxing on white boxes and god knows what else. I probably blacked out at one point.
At least Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and FUCK YES NEW RAYMAN GAME were awesome.
(as a stream of consiousness aside, a Jonah Hex commercial just came on TV and holy shit does it look bad bad bad. I like Josh Brolin and all, but goddamn.)..
Next: I don’t really care much for the World Cup, but I sure ordered a USA World Cup soccer jersey the other day. Look, it’s a Clint Dempsey jersey ok, I kinda had to. (yes, it was a chinese bootleg, but whatever it’ll still look good and it only cost me $35. SHUT UP.)
Finally, I wanted to talk about this a few days ago but I’m just now getting to it. I’m gonna show you how much my word is respected around work and I get to show you how dumb my co-workers are.
Last Saturday night (I was off, so I didn’t see about it but boy did I hear about it the next day) one of my fellow coworkers received a call from someone claiming to be from “Home Office” calling about some copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for the PC that were on “recall.” He asked this employee to open up one of the cases and give him the code that was in the case. Now, you gotta be thinking “Um, that’s obviously someone trying to rip them off, surely they didn’t fall for that.”
WRONG. They straight up gave the dude over the phone the code. YUP.
So cutting to the chase, I ask this person about what happened and told them they got hustled. They claimed ignorance and “what if they’re really on recall?” Our boss agreed with her.
So basically the guy who knows more about video games and apparently common sense, gets shafted because some people don’t wanna be wrong. Oh well, fuck’em.
(Another real time aside: Michael Jordan totally has a Hitler mustache in those new Hanes commercials.)
