Official Venting Thread

This thread is for swampies to vent when they're majorly pissed off about something. I'll start.

I have every song on Guitar Hero II on hard 5 starred. Except for one. Six. Yes, Six, the bastard child of strumming. My best score was 176k, and the minumum required for a 5 star rating is 193k. So I decided to practice my ass off on it. After finally getting the basics of it down, I went into it for real, and started playing. After god knows how many failed attempts and around 50 minutes of trying, I finally did it! Or so I thought. My score was 192,706. Yes, a mere 300 points away from getting a 5 star. I'm so ****ing pissed off right now, I came so close to putting that damn plastic SG through my f***ing tv.

This is why I stopped playing guitar hero so much.. because songs really frustrate me and I don't feel like spending time just to 5 star them..




That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

Well I treid it again this morning, and was able to get it with a rather large amount of luck. Did crappy at the beginning, then nailed the 2nd chrous, and almost perfectly hit the solo and got the star power there, then used it on the 3rd chorus which I also nailed, and then nailed the ending, and I still barely got the 5 star rating, I think my score was around 196k.

I've been working full-time all summer long at wal-mart. You're able to put down your "career preferences" which is supposed to tell them what section of the store you want to work in, but apparently that doesn't mean ****. They put you where they want to put you, no matter how crappy it is or how much you hate it. They seem to enjoy sticking me in a refrigerator by myself for 9 hours so I can stack little things of yogurt with || this much room to move around with, all while having to wrestle with crappy doors that get stuck when you have to slide them every second. And then there's last week, when they put me in the juice aisle, where I had to learn where everything went within 2 minutes and had to hurry with really freaking heavy cases of random liquid products. Also, the guy who works on the juice aisle just happens to be an a**h***, has no idea how to give instructions, and treats me like I have the thought capacity of a paper clip. These factors led to my eventual mental breakdown in which I got really stressed, upset, and sick and had to go home 6 hours early.

But no more! Haha! I only 4 more days of this **** left, and as soon as it's done I'm gonna relax for the 3 weeks before school starts, buy my new computer, and laugh in the face of wal-mart as I will never work there again.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Two weeks ago I crawled around in a 4 foot high crawl space (I'm 6'5"; the floor of the crawl space was lined with dirt and and dead mice) ripping fiber glass off of pipes for 10 hours a day for 2 days. Last week we went back into the same ****ing crawl space to cut up a few thousand pounds of copper piping and haul it into a truck.

HAHA MY JOB IS WORSE VICTOLY IS MINE

I'm about to start working in the library at my college.

>_>

I'm so mad that I have all this time to get my homework done cause nobody really needs help in the libraries. And to make things worse, sometimes I have to stack little books on shelves.

Real venting though, I'm not happy about the stupid crap that I have to do in order to get my financial aid money. Have to go through all these stupid online loan counseling things and answer questionaires. :X




That's the last time I buy anything just because it's furry!

I have worked five 10.5 hour days in a row with temperatures reaching up to around 95F. Thats not including with pants, boots, long sleeves, lack of clouds and wind, and the hot tar. The hot tar itself is 400F+. So my days are miserable.

Also the other day I got burned by the hot and the back of my hand. Only the size of a dime, but it hurt like a motherfather!

Rant

I'm sick and f!!king tired of babysitting temps. For the last 2 3/4 weeks, that's all I've been bloody doing at work. Where do they find these dumbasses? And why do they keep sending them to ME?!

I'm a machine operator in a bindery plant, and we're in the midst of our annual College Handbook job, when we put together several hundred thousand student handbooks for Canadian universities and colleges before the start of the new school term, and this job goes on for weeks. For the occasional huge jobs like this, it's cheaper and less hassle to call up a gaggle of expendable twit temps for the short term than it is to hire on and then lay off competent people, right? The last 11 out of 12 workdays, I've had nothing but these bozos with me. The guy with no upper lip has been my almost constant companion, topped only in efficiency by the kid who sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating. And these guys are the good ones. One dude lasted a whole hour and a half before putting on his coat and hopping out of the bay doors, and the kid I had tonight took a couple of cellphone calls and asked me if i knew a good chiropractor and how to call in sick. And, naturally, this knob was utterly useless for work. Eight hours into the shift, and I was still correcting his dumbass stacking mistakes.

All the other operators have gotten to have regular staffers on their machines at some point or another in the last month, I've got them for about 3 1/2 hours out of the last 110.

Piss me the f!!k off.

I'm angry too that my post insulting your post hardcore was deleted.

Anyway, I'm frustrated that everyone that plays Shadowrun is a douche. More to the point, I'm frustrated that everyone on my team is a douche while everyone on the other team have the coordination of a veteran SWAT team. The fact that it happens in nearly every game is a testament to the stupidity of the universe, and most definitely not because I suck.

I developed a pathological hatred for Pip in Freshman year because of Great Expectations. Yes, he is a douche, and I have only murderous intentions for him.

Also: the marriage between Biffy and Joe was a bit disturbing. Isn't Joe around 20 years older than her?

I wish I could pick my own book to do a report about. I'd do Brave New World, or Kitchen Confidential or somthing good.

Also, WOAH WOAH WOAH, NOT THAT FAR IN THE BOOK YET! That's kinda creepy though.

Oh, then you probably don't know that alien tripods from Mars invade and destroy London. Pip gets brutally eaten by one such alien and takes twenty pages to die.

Oh, if only.

You whats not a fun call to get? How about this one?

"Hi, this is Lynn with your apartment complex. One of our maintenance guys noticed the window was broken on your car."

YAY!

On the plus side, it wasn't broken into. My car was still locked and everything was inside. I'm not sure what happened. Probably got hit by a rock or something...

Still, now I get to spend $160 to get it replaced because its not expensive enough to be covered by my insurance. OH! And I get to sit at the glass place while they replace it! Added bonus! WOOT WOOT!

Luckily, at least, it was the passenger side so I don't have to worry about sitting on glass.

That's expensive. My front windshield has a huge crack so I need to get the whole thing replaced and thats gonna be like $180 including labor. Shop around cause someone's overcharging you.

Well, the last few days have been ****.

I go into work on Sunday, and my boss is there when it's his day off. So I go in the back and grab a bunch of games to put on the shelves. As I'm doing this, I notice my boss is watching me. After a few more minutes, I ask him what's up. He tells me to come in the back. The convo went like this.

"I'm not spose to tell you this, but we had two reports filed against you on Friday."

"What? Reports? What reports, or what did I do?"

"Well, you were reported on not doing your job, and the next I can't believe."

"Well, what is it?"

"You were reported telling a customer off."

"What!?"

"Yeah, I know. I don't believe it, but I was asked to watch you since you're the only one on duty til one."

"Ok..."

So I go back out, help customers and everything. At six I leave and go home. I tell my parents and they say its bull****. Then later I go out to a friends going away to college party.

Well, while at the party I get a phone call. It's my boss, and he wants see me at work right away. I tell him I really can't, but he says it's important. I tell my friend I had to go (he's upset, but understands) and I go back to work. I get there, and there's a customer and my boss. He points me to the back and tells me he'll be there in a sec.

So I go and wait, and he comes in and tells me to sit. He then goes on about jobs and stuff, and then tells me about work hours. THis whole time I have no idea what this means, so I just ask him.

"What are you getting at."

"Well, you hit three strikes today."

"What?"

"You left work early, and without telling anyone. That's a report and your third strike."

"What do you mean I "left work early?" I was to get off at six!"

"No you weren't, it wasn't requested."

I get up and go to the border where we request time off or another temp shift, and sure enough it wasn't approved, but everyone else's was. I tell my boss this, and he says he's sorry but he has to let me go.

So I leave pissed off, one for being fired, and two for missing my friends party. So I go home and tell my parents, in which then they tell me it sounds like someone doesn't like you.

So I call up my friend who works at a locally owned game store, and ask him if they needed people, and he tells me they do and he'll pass my name along. The next day I get a call from the owner, and he interviews me over the phone. At the end of the interview he offers me the job, because of my former expeirence and my attitude. He tells me to come to work the next day for quick training and so I can set up my schedule.

So I go there, go through the training (only an hour long) and I go to the schedule board with him. He tells me it's only once a week (used to be once a month with GameStop) and he set up a really flexible schedule of my shifts for when I go back to school next week. He tells me I'll do fine.

So yesterday (Wednesday) this guy I used to work with comes in and sees me, he asks if we can talk. I take my break and go out to talk to him, and he tells me more of why I was fired. He was a nighttime manager, and overall boss wanted to make room for some cheap interns (they make only $7 something compared to the $12.50 employees get) so he fired me, but also four other employees.

So now I'm pissed because they fired me and didn't tell me straight up. I also ask about the reports, and he says one was true, but only because the customer told me to shut the **** up and I went off on him.

But it doesn't matter anymore. I make $15.60 now running the cash register and stocking games, and during our free time we play the 360 and PS3 in the store. I also get great discounts on games and hardware.

Yeah.

I guess there's a reason for everything, eh?

I went out to GameStop and bought a Xbox 360 steering wheel so I can finally play Test Drive Unlimited and my other various racing games.

I fly home with hope and the anticipation of playing with a steering wheel for the first time. I get home pop in Test Drive.

The top half of the opening Xbox logo separates from the bottom half! I was like "DO NOT WANT!" I turn the Xbox off and restart. This time nothing. Then the green ring turned red.

I was on the brink of tears. Now I have a $100 steering wheel and no effing Xbox.
