Ah I see, and yes, that last point does make sense, sadly.
The F7 key coming off my 5 month old MacBook Pro pisses me off. It's not easy to put back on either by the looks.
* when everyone starts using the latest catchphrase.
How are you going?
Not too bad, not too bad
Yep, didn't hear you the first time....... every single time I ask.
I've said "not bad, not bad" for years
Because lets be honest here... 90% of the time when someone asks "how are you" or "how's it going", they don't care about the answer
One person in our Sydney office with a loud voice says it often, I noticed it spreading over there now just about everyone here in the Adelaide office has 'caught it'.
If you're pretty sure they don't care about the answer, respond: "Flatulent."
Always works for me.
There's a few people I work with (customers) that ask but blatantly don't care about the answer. So I usually shoot back with "bored and annoyed", "flatulent and flabby" and "slightly perturbed"
I think I'm gonna have a crack at someone next time they ask but clearly don't care. You can usually tell if they care or not when you say "good thanks, how are you?" and they mumble some half arsed answer because they didn't expect to be asked (because they're not asking with any care for your welfare in the first place).
I complained to the McDonald's website about it once and they said they'd consider modifying their training. Hah!
I think nothing of it to be honest. I just see it as people fulfilling their self-imposed obligations. If i really care about the answer, i'll usually follow-up with "And how are you really?"...or something to that effect. A very few people do the same, but it's quite nice when they do.
My 15 OLD son has actully been pissing me off for some time now well actully 2 terms of school , not a week goes bye without a Phone call TXT message, email about his behaviour in some of his class's , he has actully choosen not to come home to night , staying at Friends place tonight . more like his partner in Crime ... oh well it quite peaceful it is ...
When I ask "how's it going?", it's usually just an invitation to start a conversation. If I actually care how someone's going, I have to press them for an answer.
The thing that annoys me is not when they don't care, but when they don't even listen to the answer. They ask things like "how's it going?" or "can I ask you a question?" and barely pause before they start rambling on.
Dude, I'm hearing that. One of the managers at work has "happy days" as his catchphrase whenever something is going ok. Since he started, at least four other blokes have started saying it. I always found it annoying in the first place. Now it's insufferable.
Cops that are above the law. Here is a prime example and it happened to me. I was walking away when they attacked, I had my back to them. They tased me a megaton and heard one of them say "and one for good measure" and got the last one under my balls. Here is a video I took the morning I got home:
HOLY SHIT! Here is a perfect example of pure stupidity:
Just had an e-mail from an acquaintance asking if I'd like to be part of his future Kickstarter game project.
As part of the blurb he sent it said "It's a game that forces the player to take a journey" and that was when I immediately rejected it.
It's the same with novels or films, you shouldn't FORCE the audience into something. that belies the reasons for creating something. You want to entice them to join in with you, make it seem that they are a part of it all and keep their interest at every point no matter where you take the narrative.
If you use the would FORCE it pretty much says that you want to beat the audience over the head with your own opinions and limit their emotional connection with the story you are trying to tell.
It just sounds preachy and wanky. So automatic rejection right there.
TPG piss me off. I might make the move back to iiNet I think.
People who sit in the middle lane (which can go left or right) of a 3 lane intersection and don't indicate
I wake up at 6am for work, yeah that pisses me off but what pisses me off even more is waking up at 4am (or earlier) then being unable to sleep properly, tossing and turning through the night checking the alarm clock throughout and the last thing I notice before falling into the most deepest sleep is 5.50 am on the alarm clock, then getting woken up by the alarm 10 minutes later and feel crap all day.
not bad, not bad...
don't feed the troll.
Having a bloody seppo (American) trying to argue with me; saying that because Australia since has brought gun control laws that it has become a chaotic land of crime where ordinary citizens can't defend themselves and live in constant fear of attack.
Then tries to say he's read statistics proving that to be true.
Well, fucker, I live in the country as you well know and my former job was risk management. I've read every bloody statistic there is on the matter for the past 5 fucking years!
