I have a dumb amount of shoes. Maybe thirty pairs but only ever wear like four pairs. The other day went thru and tried on most of them and like 90% are really fukn tight. Basically too small but I guess how i thought shoes were supposed to fit. About ten years ago I had the exact same problem because I was forcing myself to wear 11-12s even tho I should of worn 13s. Today I found two old shoeboxes from when I was in highschool and they're both size 14s so somehow for 20 years I've been wearing the wrong size shoes lol

A local inliner completely fucked over the only perfect ledge in my city. It was already painted red but he waxed the everloving shit out of it and it's an absolute deathtrap right now. Might try to scrape some off but for now I'll be avoiding the spot.

My instagram feed is being increasingly flooded with this narcissistic gen-Z simulated porn.  Like tik tok girls pantomiming jacking someone off while (out of) lip syncing to some suggestive audio.  Iím no prude or anything, but this shit is really lame.  (More disturbed by the desperate narcissistic elements than the sexual content tbh).

IG has been really shit forever, and itís been getting exponentially worse daily for years, but itís damn near unusable at this point.

Fucking Lyft.

I took a ride with them today. The map in the app was incorrect and took me and the driver to the wrong location. I just typed in the name of the restaurant that I wanted to go to and I assumed that a taxi app would contain an accurate map.

There is no real way to speak to customer service. Instead, they just have some bullshit survey to fill out. Not surprisingly, the survey doesn't have an option for "the driver was great, but we fucked up programming the app and owe you a refund and we have to pay the driver out of our pocket."

I never thought I'd miss calling an 800 number and being on hold on forever, but the tech companies have created an even more frustrating experience by forcing me to fill out a pre-established form and then sending me an email response that doesn't even address my issue.

I'd just dispute it with my credit card, but I want the driver to get paid.

Note: When you have a legitimate problem with AirBnB and their shitty arbitration system fucks you over, just dispute with your credit card company. AirBnB told me that I wasn't getting a refund on a shit stay a year ago, I disputed it with my credit card and I got every fucking penny back.

I dropped an old phone in a recycling bin at a Best Buy and moved on with my life. I tried to power the phone on to reset it before I binned it but it was dead and had been sitting in a drawer for years so I figured it was safe to drop it as is. I forgot to take out the sim card. A couple of days later I started getting random Lyft charges on my debit card from that Best Buy to places all over town. Best Buy didn't give a shit that it was likely one of their employees who pulled it out of the bin, charged it up and then getting free rides on my dime and Lyft was fucking useless. I caught the activity on the second ride and knew exactly what had happened but they got 3 more rides before I realized I had to dispute the charges and cancel that debit card to get it to stop. The shittiest part was that I had to wait for that card to expire before Lyft would let me update my card in their system so for the following 2 or so years I also couldn't use the service.

Their shitty form responses didn't help?

I never thought things could be worse than the hell of calling an 800 number, but email/chat responses are worse cause nothing ever gets solved.

Hurt my shoulder arm wrestling some kook at a house party this weekend. All this behaviour is out of character for me but the woman dragged me out this weekend and I had way too much bourbon.  I drove all these drunk fools from some horrible club to this party and brought a 1/2-ounce mix of various types of weed I grew this year as a gift for one of the hosts since it was her birthday. The guy made some smug, condescending comments about how he could tell it was homegrown, essentially insinuating that it looked shitty and kept running his mouth to me all night about this and that. I was drinking too fast to catch up to everyone since I was the designated driver for the first portion of the night. Finally, I had had enough and stood up and backhand slapped him across the small kitchen table after a particularly insulting comment. Instead of obliging me to go outside and fight he wanted to arm wrestle instead. Most likely cause it's his thing and he knew he'd win that and probably would have gotten his ass beat if we stepped out. We were locked in a stalemate with no movement for so long until I was fatigued as he did all these weird wrist tweaks and techniques that people I guess do in arm wrestling. We were cool after for the rest of the night but I still kinda wish we just scrapped it out cause I'd much rather have a shiner and hurt hands than have my bad shoulder acting up.

Constant headaches and pain. Doctor says is it's probably chronical stress:
- deadlines, one after the other
- I need that job because it pays well and I need the cash to fix our roof
- I can't sleep much, if it's 5-6 hours, it's alot
- Check-ups from my gf's cancer are coming up again
- Wasn't intimate with my gf in 5 years > cancer is gynaecolgical so ... yeah.
- Can't have childredn anymore due to the cancer so we're in a trajectory with a surrogate mother. financially another major bummer and mentally it's exhausting ...
- I think my dad is slowly dying. He has a severe longtissue issue due to a flame he inhaled in an acciden. it's so bad he has to get a new set of lungs. He's constantly on an airtank. Can't do anything anymore and he lost about 40 pounds...
- skateboarding hurts. MY knee is screwed, my friends all live 2 hours away from me and I can't get motivated to go skate alone ...

Life sucks right now, and I'm only "going".

 I"m pretty sure that the moment I'll "stop" I'll crash.

Last Friday, I went to the next big city to check some spots . I had to walk through the shopping district and well it was Black Friday.
I saw a fat ladie packed with 5 shopping bags followed by three daughters also packed with shit, arguing with a homeless guy who asked them for a few cents of change.
They spit on him and said they rather waste the money on sweets and bla bla bla.. I was shocked.
I gave this guy, his name is Uwe, a few Euros before I left the scene. I hate society sometimes.. who the fuck are those people.. stupid fat pigs , living in a pile of shit, made out of plastic bags, lipstick and fastfood , thinking that's something to be proud of . Black Kookday is a mirror of society, Cheap fucking waste.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a Skateboard.

I'm 46 now, but around 37 I think... all my skate damage seemed to catch up with me. All of my joints that I've hurt skating just ache all the time now, so I can't skate much. Well... it'll be like.. "my knees are fine today but my back is hurt" or vice versa. I'm trying to figure out what level of CBD i need to try out. Also, my left ankle is possibly hanging on by a thread internally.

So stop running and find cardio elsewhere?  I could hit a rowing machine or bike or elliptical thing if it'll save me later for sure

I used to run a lot and I'm fucked and I have older family who are really into running and I think generally the idea is human beings weren't designed to run, at least the way most people do it. Basically you have to make sure youve got good technique and then only really run at at least 75% speed if not faster and when you get tired stop running and start walking while also making sure you've got a decent walking technique (decent as far as good for your body not like power walking or whatever it's called for speed).
Slow running/Jogging does way more bad than good and apparently it's not even that good for cardio anyway

So about 5 years ago they started this recycling thing in Aus where you collect all of your packaging rubbish and bring it back to the shop and apparently they turn it into astro turf or those plastic benches for schools and shit. This plus every two years changing what bags you get/have to buy at the shops and anyway turns out it was all horseshit. I'm not even that surprised really but it's so much wasted effort making sure all the right types of plastics get seperated correctly and then brought to the right places.
