stupid first world problems you're dealing with

sleep is elusive. also, the holidays are coming. 

NYE is my favorite holiday anymore tbh. The two preceding it are field days for capitalism and family-related stress and anxiety. They're full of peer pressure, societal obligations, and pretentious quasi-sentimental bullshit. Where's all that "joy" that's so superficially emphasized?

some tweaker mush mouth woke me up at 3am last night digging through the recycle bin in the back yard. confronted him and he said "I won't make a mess" .. dude it's 3 am and you fucking woke me up. wait until the bins are at the curb next time.  and he did make a mess. i had to pick up the leavings this morning and noticed he took one of the little yellow tubs that is for bottles. dick!

i put all the recycling shit in the garage this morning, the spare propane tank for the grill, put a bike lock attached to a post on the propane tank that's in the grill. .brought in anything else that isn't nailed down and i guess i have to put pad locks on the gates. first time this shit has happened, to my knowledge, in more than 10 years of living in this house. i guess the can collectors are a competitive bunch. 

the last thing i wanted to do is listen to meth/crackhead mush mouth rambles at 3am.  my sleep is already greatly compromised and now i'm just fucking going for full sleep dep mode all day. guess i'll have that 2nd cup of coffee this afternoon.

That "like" is for the quality FWP, not for your subsequent suffering.  Hope it passes.

Old people in the grocery store. The moment I walk in I get stuck behind some old guy walking slow as balls in a zigzag pattern apparently trying to read some slip of paper the whole time. So I couldn't just jet past him without bumping into him.
Then I needed to grab individual carrots but some old lady kept turning them over one-by-one and inspecting them. They're fucking carrots ffs. What's the difference?
And upon checkout there was another old guy in the self-checkout next to me going "WHERE DO THE COINS GO? IS THIS WHERE YOU PUT THE CASH IN?" Fuck.

And Ignatius it sounds like you need some kind of pressurized diaper bin to place out front overnight as a junkie deterrent. A jack-in-the-box full of poopy diapers basically.

I haven't had a decent looking haircut in years, and today was no exception. Left looking like I wanted to belong in the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater lineup and decided to DIY that dream.

I keep writing replies in various thresads, then decide "nah that's not worth posting" and hit the back button.  Done maybe four of those in a row.  There was even one waiting for me in here, which was in response to Stickfigger:

"Not a job per se, but have you considered armed robbery?"

I decided it was too edgy or something.  I'mma see this one through tho, so that the others were not in vain.

Didn't space my last 2 meals far enough apart.  Also, forgot to buy ice cream.  There was a guy muttering things like "hmmmm chocolate..." in front of the Haagen Daaz, which is what I was after.  So I decided to get the rest of my groceries first and return later after the guy had finished reviewing all the flavours to himself. But I never made it back.  Life is brutish and short.

When I said "the rest of my groceries" I was referring to a loaf of bread and olives in the next aisle.  But your point still stands.

I had to update the playlist that plays in our stores via spotify and added in a bunch of xmas songs, because you know, its xmas. I usually just dump in entire spotify playlists and filter out anything that has the word "EXPLICIT" next to it. This track from the Pogues made it into the playlist without flagging Spotify's "explicit" notice and we had these lyrics blasting at our customers as a result:

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

 

Merry Xmas ya fuckin' cunts!
