stupid first world problems you're dealing with

Recommended Posts

Gddamn man, poor fucker suffered more than necessary by leaps and bounds. Should’ve just crushed his head.

 

edit: ummmmm SFWP ummmm: I started a new job I’m probably gonna be good at but can’t shake the feeling like I should get back into something else i was doing a bit back. Also considering buying lotto tickets regularly because of how miserable life is re: money, even tho I know lotto tickets are just throwing away cash (I haven’t yet)

I caught a mouse in a trap last night that's probably been snooping around my apartment for a couple of months now. But it didn't go as intended. The poor little bastard was still alive but paralyzed, as the kill bar had crushed its lower spine.

So I took it outside and released it, but it could only move its front legs, as it was crawling around and shaking. I offered a slab of peanut butter out of immense guilt, but it just crawled past it. I was surprised it didn't just crawl off the balcony.

I haven't seen it since last night, but I'm never using those traditional flip traps again. Not with the risk of inflicting that kind of suffering.

The worst traps are the sticky one. Supposedly mice try to chew off their feet to escape from them. :sad:

When I first used a sticky trap, I thought the whole point of it was to be less barbaric, like you can free the mouse after it gets caught. 

 

After prying it off with a plastic fork outside and unintentionally breaking all of its legs, I realized how much better the snappy bar traps are. 

I had a coworker that threw boiling water on mice.

just use live traps and set them free somewhere far enough away from your house, like a park or something... mice aren't THAT scary.

They've scared the shit out of me on several occasions. Not in a horror-like sense, but just startling me by being small and fast and appearing pretty much out of nowhere. Plus they're potential disease carriers, and they've turned one of my storage bins into a toilet.

Regardless, benign traps are what I'll have to use from now on if I hope of...redemption. I'd have to get used to going up and down three flights of stairs every time though.

I got my wallet/credit card out to pay my parking ticket online, but the ticket itself is no longer on my person.  I tried to pay at City Hall a month ago but it happened to be on a holiday so they were closed.  Oh well, I tried.

I don't know how new thing this is but I've ran into it just recently that people in HR and recruiting don't call job interviews any more job interviews.. It's getting fucking ridiculous.

So, occasionally recruiters contact me saying "would you like to come for a little chat in our office" or "how about a small discussion about possibilities in our company" and "it's not a job interview just a friendly discussion". Possibly followed with a bunch of emojis.

I'm a freelancer without clients or commissions with plenty of time so why not, get some free coffee and have a chat. But when I get there.. yeah, it's a fucking job interview. There's maybe someone from the HR and some manager sitting behind a table with their laptops open and my CV or LinkedIn page on the display. Notebooks in their hands.. "Do you mind if we take notes?" And then they start by giving some presentation about their company and after that bombarding with questions about what I've done before.

Then it ends it with either "sorry, I don't think you're suitable for any of our positions" or "I think we'll be moving onward with you, but there's two more rounds of interviews and you need to provide a sample of your work". And I'm left thinking  "wtf, I didn't know I applied for any position".

I don't really mind being called to job interviews but just fucking call it an interview if it's an interview and not an informal discussion. Thank you.

The decline of the old London accent. Yeah it's around, but its days seem numbered.

So are my hard drive's, it seems.  4 TB internal drive tanking after just over 5 years. I have a complete backup but geez. No internal HDD I've held on to in the last 10 years has made it past the 5-6 year mark.

I'm now reading this is normal, but then why are drives I gave away to other people merrily cruising along at twice that age. :catrage:

I've never (knock on wood, shit!) had an issue with hard drives - I have one right now that is on its 18th year (my brother is using it in a computer I gifted him). =/

i think i missed the poppy planting window. 

perhaps. 

the new oled for my DX11 is taking a while to get here. DX11 is still in pieces on a table. though i did fix the 4 broken keys w/o much fuss. the keys came from same part of the world as the screen is coming from (UK) but the keys got here in like 4 days or something. and was only $3.95 shipping. OLED taking its swet time.
