I daren't look at the opening post to this thread, written by me whilst slightly inebriated and in a foul mood.

EDIT: it was far better than I feared, basically tame. Good.

People who don't vote, and even more so, those that go on to moan about the outcome. I have friends who did this at last year's general election and the EU referendum this year. Democracy as a system doesn't work if you're going to get a huge fraction of people not voting :roll:

Ads on YouTube videos are bad enough, but what's irritates me even more is people who upload 10-20 second long videos and put ads on them. It seems stupid to have to sit through a half-minute long ad just to watch a 20 second or less video :?

The ads on YouTube videos are getting longer too. The ones where you can skip after 5 seconds are getting rarer and you now have to sit through mandatory 30 second ads on some videos now :smt011 (Luckily, Adblock on my laptop means I only have this problem on my iPad)

Also, political correctness and SJWs are getting worse and worse. People just get offended far too easily, and it's always the same excuses (feminism, racism, left wing political views, sensitive children, religion and even conspiracy theories) each time. I just wish people would calm down and stop taking everything so ultra-seriously :smt009

Well, i take back what i said about the PC crowd being the only group of people who actively get offended by things

In general, i'm just sick of people now who use their politics, religious beleifs and conspiracy theories to be offended by something :smt011 :roll:

There's a fantastic quote from Stephen Fry about being offended by things, have you seen it/read it? He sums up the world perfectly in a few sentences.

Like there was a tennis player the other day who made the news because he apparently followed or has followed some right-wing nutters on Twitter, so he had to deny he's a fascist/racist/terrorist sympathiser. It's ridiculous, our society today.

Remember when you used to go to the movies and the 'pre-show entertainment' was only a few minutes of ads and trailers? I've had 3 cinema visits since June last year and now it's only 2 or 3 trailers and about 15 minutes of ads we're forced to sit through before a movie starts :smt011

Council employees. Gormless, utterly worthless, braindead slugs whose only friends are the computers at the desks in their bland, grey offices. :D

In every single kitchen in the land, there's always a difficult chef. They will fling stuff across the room if they have to redo an order, or if they get more than one order at once, or if they have to make food nearer to closing time.

Quite often it can be amusing to watch the trivial meltdowns, but generally, if you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen. That's why I stay at the dishwasher and leave the oven alone.

One summer's evening at the Chinese I used to work at (albeit not as a chef but stationed in the open kitchen when awaiting deliveries), the head chef - who was in this case also the head of the family, a diminutive but fiercely determined and fiery chap called Mr Lin who moved quicker than the speed of light - was upset with a young lad who had taken exception to some of his food. Treating the dastardly boy's complaint as an affront to the family honour (as far as I can tell, given that the whole family, including his six-month-old grandson, were in the employ of the business in some fashion or another), Mr Lin began negotiations with his new-found nemesis, which went along smoothly once he drew from the kitchen, and brandished confidently, a large carving knife.

It was soon made clear that the boy had, in fact, no qualms with the food produced by Mr Lin or, indeed, the rest of his family, and that he would be departing this unfortunate scene immediately.

Upon the conclusion of this business, Mr Lin returned to his prior engagements in the kitchen.

(As it happened, the police were called and the night ended shortly thereafter for my erstwhile colleague, but no retrospective action was taken and life went on in a similar, but not so outwardly violent, manner for the next few years. We did have a 'customer blacklist' that problem customers earned a place on, but what 'blacklist' meant exactly is something I was never privy to. Suffice to say, if an individual merited being added to this blacklist, they didn't bother us again...) :suspect:

Something i really can't understand - People who complain about songs and music videos being too dirty/sexualized today, yet they complain about cartoons, TV shows etc. today being too PC and sugar-coated :? :?

I think in general society has become a lot more dirty and sexualised and...well, slutty, basically, to the extent that Oscar Wilde's frivolities - every single one of them - wouldn't bat an eyelid nowadays, because whoring yourself out to anyone who'll take you and poisoning yourself to death with chemicals that give you a sudden, short high are ingrained into our way of life.
You know, and the songs we have reflect that, which is unfortunate because a lot of these artists have immense, naturally-given talent (notice I didn't say God-given, which is another bugbear - a psychopathic domineering mass murdering character in a bloody fairy tale written 1,000 years ago didn't give us anything, thanks) - where was I, they have all this talent and then completely, utterly waste it making work that has no meaning whatsoever, other than talking about their last relationship or the last time they *beep* someone or how they want loadsamoney and how they'll go in in a black Benz and come out in a white one, what's all this tripe going to say about our generation? My point, and what irritates me about this whole shabang, is that in the past, people made an effort.
A songwriter was an artist, actually an artist, Eleanor Rigby is art, Group of Black Gang Members with Gold Chains and Bitches And Hoes Feat. Elinah Rigged-Me is not. Still, you've got someone like Eminem, a valid counterargument he would be, a great lyricist, an artist, but that's what sets him apart, a rough diamond in a field of horse muck. Why did I focus on him? No idea, he was the first one who came to mind, but I know there are others, so let's skip-a-dee-doo-dah away from his genre and back to music on the whole.
I hear very little currently relevant music that puts into my heart the hunger for more, the appreciation of the work that went into it, because I'm quite sure there isn't much work, but there is a lot of rest, and a hell of a lot of play, and a lot of sitting around watching bank balances increase exponentially. It's a mercenary's industry, run by self-obsessed moguls like Cowell and Clifford, and I'm sure all the stuff Clifford did has happened, and still happens, with great regularity, and the people who sell their souls to the industry are bound to it forever more, which wouldn't be an issue, except most of their voices are altered in computer software because in reality they sound like the anguished wails of a man who's just walked into a waist-high concrete bollard in the middle of the night. Joe Public consumes it like Joe Public consumes Big Macs and chicken nuggets, because Joe Public's easily led and impressionable; Cowell and the ashes of Clifford rest on their laurels, content with the gazillions they earn from doing absolutely nothing and safe in the knowledge that they can always harvest the souls of the unfortunate singers, songwriters and latterly-deformed members of the aristocracy who opened their mouths to sing in the shower, saw the bathroom window shatter and thought, 'hey, that window broke into a million little pieces - that must mean I've got a God-given talent!'
God-given, indeed.

;)

Bosses who do the following:
1. Miscommunicate frequently and blame it on others
2. Are grossly negligent with their bill payments and then blame it on their bookkeeper (including personal payments that should NOT be mixed in with business accounts :roll: )
3. Ask me if I had a change in medications over the past few weeks :smt009
4. Ask their employees to write down everything in every conversation they have and then type it up and e-mail it to them
5. Think they're the smartest person in the world when they can't even log in to an e-mail account :roll:

Phew, I feel better now. :)

And if you're wondering why I would risk my boss seeing this and firing me, 1) this forum is so dead that even psychokiller's trolling goes unnoticed, and 2) see point # 5 on the list above. :P

Some of us ghosts still haunt these corridors from time to time, when our minds get restless in the middle of the night... :suspect:
