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…

Nick Kammerdiener @nicolas

I was so excited when they offered this. I could finally quit using Boomerang.

Daniel Rice @danielricecodes

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 >_<

topher Dick @topher

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.

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

Maybe that’s because you need your gall bladder checked

Tanya Mott @tmott13

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:

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

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

nshttpd @nshttpd

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

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Hutt, Jabba the?

Tanya Mott @tmott13

pardon?

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

I'm trying to decipher Hutt lifestyle, and I can only think of one Hutt

Well, also Pizza the Hutt

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

I’m a little more like JABBA THE HUTT

JR Rickerson @jrrickerson

Yes as in Jabba

Forget the scale, just lay around eating and hiring bounty hunters

Bob Elwell @robert.elwell

pizza the hutt

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Harrison Bond @harrisonbond827

you managed to trigger my disgust reflex with SFW content. congrats.

Tanya Mott @tmott13

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

Tabitha N @stellartabi

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

Dan Nicodemo @danodemo

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.

Stephen Harper @deltaedge

boo hiss @ value engineering

Dan Nicodemo @danodemo

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.

Tanya Mott @tmott13

I literally hate that corps think it's ok to put artificial shit in food

Stephen Harper @deltaedge

isn't that applicable to most people who worked in low paying retail/service jobs? that's been my ancedata

Tanya Mott @tmott13

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

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

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.

Tanya Mott @tmott13

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

Dan Nicodemo @danodemo

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

Tanya Mott @tmott13

I stopped doing it once I got my new job - I don't need the income anymore

Dan Nicodemo @danodemo

I stopped doing it once I realized I could make more money selling blood and plasma lol

Tanya Mott @tmott13

I prob will not return to any form of delivery where I am using my own vehicle

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

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

Tanya Mott @tmott13

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

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Quoth Clerks, "This job would be great if it weren't for all the fuckin' customers."

Evan Seeds @evanseeds

I was a delivery driver for a small restaurant for like 5 years in college — I really enjoyed driving, but customers were the worst

Actually, no

customers were bad, washing dishes was the worst

Tanya Mott @tmott13

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

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

See, that’s where I’m strange. I liked doing dishes in one of those Auto-Chlor systems. Kept away from people, etc…

Tanya Mott @tmott13

but i had to do handwashing at taco bell before -- that is hard no now

Evan Seeds @evanseeds

Yeah, the last restaurant I worked at just had the three sink method

and also, barely functional hot water :grimer:

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

Which should’ve generated an inspection finding

Evan Seeds @evanseeds

to say the least

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

They’re supposed to do a temp check on the water, and if you’re not hot enough, they can actually shut you down

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Thank you @evanseeds for motivating me to cook at home more

Tanya Mott @tmott13

:mask:

Evan Seeds @evanseeds

If you’re ever in Columbus, GA, I recommend against the gas-station-steak-restaurant

good steak tho

Tanya Mott @tmott13

the only gas station i eat at is QT

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

yeah, those meat dogs are awesome

Tanya Mott @tmott13

and that is the last resort

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

KETO FRIENDLY!!!!!

:smile:

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Having traveled far and wide, allow me to tell you, @tmott13, about the mighty halls of Wawa

Jerald Sheets @cvquesty

Wawa, Sheetz, and Shwegmann’s

Zachary Sarver @zsarver

Wherein you can find plentiful food and many a horn of iced tea

Trish Smith @thetrishasmith

Sheetz food is pretty good
