Whenever you need to call a call center, why do you always get put on hold b/c they are, "Experiencing higher than normal call volume?"  I talked to this girl at BoA, she helped me with my issue and sounded kind of cute.  At the end of the cal she goes, "Do you have any additional questions?"  I reply with, "Are you ever at normal or or below normal call volume?"  She replies with, "No."  I say, "Maybe you need to step up your threshold for what normal call volume is and hire some more people."  She laughed.

That call centre stuff is some battery hen type shit
No place to hide

We had desk phones back in the day
This guy Dave used to reroute his desk phone to his mobile but one day he got caught at the pub and that was the end of that

I really need to just save up my money and buy my own cement mixer. As much fun as it may be to mix with a shovel, I want to get creative and it's going to save time. Looks like I'm on the wagon and avoiding the sale thread.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Dude, anything less than 6 bags and Iíd rather do it by hand in a tub or wheelbarrow. General contractor Iíve been working for a lot has a mixer and itís a PITA to move and clean. Pro tip: a hoe is quicker than a shovel.

These mixers are sick


foto hosting

Donít have to get this exact brand, theyíre expensive
But this style is the go itís real easy to wheel it around and one person can put it on the stand, you just put the tripod on when itís lying down and stand it up and same in reverse to get it off the stand

Theyíre easy to clean too

For small mixes you can legit do em bucket by bucket with a half decent mixing drill, itís easy as that way

Edit

Maybe I am a poosay but for anything bigger youíd just get readymix in or like a concrete truck as if you would break your back

I broke myself off today helping out a family friend
Been trying to ditch the job for two years cunt didnít wanna re sheet full got bullied into doing it by family what a shitshow
Fully rendered these walls fucking mess and tiled it mint as but just happened to lose my fucking mind in the process
Making chicken salad out of chicken shit is a waste of time
I forgot to say it was this upstairs bathroom everything had to be carried up it was stupid
Domestic jobs are nowhere holy shit

I had this milk bath for two hours and I still feel like pure shit

The letter W is dumb. Double e and double O aren't their own letters.
letter Q shouldn't need a u after it we know it makes a kw sound.
The letter C should always make a ch sound and we should just use S and K when needed eg circle would be sirkel.

Vast majority of the jobs Iím on are residential, and usually just a few bags of this or that. Access to power and water/place to clean it out plus the space the mixer takes in the truck/trailer means buckets are just easier.

I read an article recently that explained how the saxophone is dying and it's not used in modern music any longer. How it's become this weird cliche, trite, mocked instrument. I think that's a fucking shame, personally.

thats definitely a shame because people just listen to beepboopbop electronic noise and autotune now. world got dumber

If you like post punk, check out a lot of the new bands coming out of the UK. I feel like the sax has made it's way into a lot of that stuff lately, or at least enough for me to notice. Check out Squids last album.
And here's some heavy metal saxophone

The term ďwokeĒ is going through a very similar trajectory as hipster did in the mid 2000s to early 2010s. Where it meant something very specific and through constant derogatory use by middle America became something completely different years later.


Hipster in 2005- a young person apart of the downtown Manhattan or West Hollywood nightlife scenes

Hipster in 2011 - a white person under 40 who shops at Trader Joeís, or any minority that doesnít fit a stereotype.


Woke in 2015- a Umar Johnson looking motherfucker who reads Afrocentric books, watches low budget documentaries, and has an amazing diet

Woke in 2021 - a white person under 40 who shops at Trader Joeís, or any minority that complains to HR.

Fuck imagine losing a trillion dollars just because a coin fell out your pocket.

A.I freaks me out. Has anyone ever stopped and asked themselves if we should be putting the burden of conciseness on machines? Robots are not asking for this. I never heard a robot ask a human for this. This seems wrong.
