People just don’t listen

Ever since my roommate moved in, things have not been the same. I don’t get the same amount of privacy that I once had. I don’t get to do the normal things that I get to do. And I now have to depend on someone to make sure my electricity doesn’t go out. Or even […]

Shut up

I don’t know what it is but my roommate continues to annoy me. The only time that she doesn’t annoy me is when I’m not home or when she’s not home. The unfortunate thing about it is that I have too much patient and I can withstand a lot of annoyance but I think that […]

Talk to the people

I have a little issue that is currently happening at work that I don’t quite agree with. I voiced my opinion on the matter but it doesn’t seem like my coworker wants to hear about it. I thought that my reasoning made sense so I’m not sure why he didn’t want to hear it. I’m […]

The run around

I’ve been trying to get my credit history in order but no one seems to be able to help. I don’t think it should be this hard to get a flag removed once everything has been paid in full. One company blames another company and that company blames the company that blamed them. So I’m […]

Who do I talk to?

Some people have a knack for turning simple things around and making them more difficult than they should be. I don’t know why they like to do that but it’s a little annoying when you’re trying to get things done. Maybe it’s their way of creating job security or maybe they’re just following procedure but […]

Buying foreign

Today, as I was driving to school I saw a bumper sticker on a Chevrolet Cavalier that said, “Out Of a Job Yet? Keep Buying Foreign!” At first, I was a little confused because I had to think about what the sticker was implying. They say that because we spend most of our money on […]

Tipping

When I dine in at a restaurants, no matter now fancy it is, I tend to leave a 20% tip to the waiter or waitress. I rarely get bad services at the restaurant that I attend so 20% is a fair amount for good service. I’m often tempted to leave nothing at all for bad […]

Waste of time

I don’t quite understand the purpose of making an appointment and not keeping it. I’d assume that anyone who is professional enough to make an appointment would be professional enough to follow through. If they are not able to keep that appointment, I’d assume that they would call and give a reason why they can’t […]

Code of conduct

I’ve been working in IT for about two years now at my present company but I’m not sure if I qualify as a professional yet. I’m not even sure what qualifies a person to being a professional. I assume that it’s someone who has worked in the industry for a while using the education and […]

Cancel my order please

A couple of nights ago, there was a listing on Red Flag Deals about a Lexmark wireless printer. The printer cost $59.99 and came with a 4GB USB drive. On top of that, there was also a $50 rebate so in the end, you just pay for the taxes and shipping which came out to […]
