well that only took Gmail like 15 years to implement:

I have to take an annual physical to make my wife happy - now I have to take ANOTHER physical to get life insurance? Why can’t the life insurance people just get a report from my doctor? It’s like these people sat around a table and came up with THE MOST ANNOYING WAYS to interrupt my life…
I was so excited when they offered this. I could finally quit using Boomerang.
My wife could rant forever about this kind of stuff. She recently began volunteer scuba diving at the Georgia Aquarium again after a hiatus. The hiatus was over a year, so she has to go through the beurocracy, including the Diving safety training courses, all over again. She is the highest level possible scuba certified (PADI IDC - she can train Dive Masters...), has tech diving certification (she can dive with gas mixtures and go below 130 feet...and live to tell the tale), has volunteered there before, and probably has 5,000 dives worth of experience. But gotta check those checkboxes all over again >_<
The problem is that the checkboxes don't allow for any rational application of thought... Of course, that's why I didn't last very long in phone support; I kept wanting to fix the problem instead of filling out the form and passing people along to Level 2. The unmitigated gall.
Maybe that’s because you need your gall bladder checked
I hate going to the doc cause I hate the scale and I always subtract 10 pounds from the number and convince myself I weigh less :unamused:
I just got a popup for it last night while I was working late, so maybe it's been in there a bit but I didn't see it
The only way I go to a hospital is in a flashy box.

Just dedicate your life to a Hutt lifestyle and roll with it
Hutt, Jabba the?
I'm trying to decipher Hutt lifestyle, and I can only think of one Hutt
Well, also Pizza the Hutt
I’m a little more like JABBA THE HUTT
Yes as in Jabba
Forget the scale, just lay around eating and hiring bounty hunters
pizza the hutt
you managed to trigger my disgust reflex with SFW content. congrats.
I feel like dining in at a pizza hut in the 90s were the best -- the pizza tasted completely different. funny how corps downgrade in food over time
Pizza hut used to be amazing I swear it's all garbage now
Done pizza huts outside of the US let you get a personal sized pizza with stuffed crust
In 2002/2003 Pizza Hut stopped using a lot of fresh ingredients in favor of cheaper, processed alternatives. This includes things like butter, which has been replaced with chemicals, many of the sauce seasonings, much of the flour in the dough is now industrial gluten filler (read: old newspapers and saw-dust, no shit), and they have been caught twice, maybe more, using fake cheese and advertising it as real. For SURe they use a lot of additives in their “cheese” products.
boo hiss @ value engineering
Additionally, in the 90's a $5/hour wage was equivalent to roughly 12/hour now, so happier employees meant better quality food.
These days Pizza Hut employees are almost to the last checked out and only there as a survival tactic. NOBODY who works at one is even remotely happy or motivated to do a good job.
I literally hate that corps think it's ok to put artificial shit in food
isn't that applicable to most people who worked in low paying retail/service jobs? that's been my ancedata
the fact that we even are dealing with artificial shit in our food period
one of the reasons why I shop at Trader Joe's or sprouts
I worked for PH for 4 years, starting in high school. They were serious as heck about training you for your job like it was a career. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there.
Later, I did a quick “pick up” of driving to help make ends meet, and it was the crappiest experience imaginable.
doing uber eats, I'll tell you people do not appreciate you enough when you are the one bringing them food that they are too lazy to get their asses up to pick it up
can't count the number of times i received NO tip at all
I used to keep a book of customer who didn’t tip during the VERY short time I worked gig delivery like that. Consequently, I don’t know why restaurants kept messing up orders for those customers :shrug: Just one of those mysteries of life that will never get solved I guess
I stopped doing it once I got my new job - I don't need the income anymore
I stopped doing it once I realized I could make more money selling blood and plasma lol
I prob will not return to any form of delivery where I am using my own vehicle
I always tip extra if I can afford it and the service was halfway decent. Something to make up for minimum wage not being a living wage
one guy even said he never got his food when I am the one that placed it in his hands - trying to get a refund or something
overall garbage people
Quoth Clerks, "This job would be great if it weren't for all the fuckin' customers."
I was a delivery driver for a small restaurant for like 5 years in college — I really enjoyed driving, but customers were the worst
customers were bad, washing dishes was the worst
washing dishes is the worse if it's by hand. when i worked at six flags we had an automatic washer so we just had to load the dishes up on a palette and push it through
See, that’s where I’m strange. I liked doing dishes in one of those Auto-Chlor systems. Kept away from people, etc…
but i had to do handwashing at taco bell before -- that is hard no now
Yeah, the last restaurant I worked at just had the three sink method
and also, barely functional hot water :grimer:
Which should’ve generated an inspection finding
to say the least
They’re supposed to do a temp check on the water, and if you’re not hot enough, they can actually shut you down
Thank you @evanseeds for motivating me to cook at home more
If you’re ever in Columbus, GA, I recommend against the gas-station-steak-restaurant
good steak tho
the only gas station i eat at is QT
yeah, those meat dogs are awesome
and that is the last resort
Having traveled far and wide, allow me to tell you, @tmott13, about the mighty halls of Wawa
Wawa, Sheetz, and Shwegmann’s
Wherein you can find plentiful food and many a horn of iced tea
Sheetz food is pretty good
