FML general thread [8]

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

My jeep was just diagnosed with the dreaded death wobble :sniffle:
I hope no one ever experiences that. :cringe:

Was really angry when a fan forum decided to implement a rating/reputation system ala-Reddit. Claimed they want to use it to identify good posts and bad posts, supposedly to track "trolls". Feels more like... circlejerky when I thought it better to ignore forum users who are annoying or report trolling behavior. :facepalm:

I mean, I've been here for years and I'm generally happy that admins and mods run a tighter ship here.

Well, mine has decided that Eva is no longer to be anything more than a little black box with a .png (presumably) play button emblem in the middle instead of an actual video :/

My mom passed away recently. Its 1 week today.. :sniffle: she was only 59, the same age as my dad when he passed and almost on the same day..I know I'm posting on the fml thread because it hurts still, but at the same time myself and the family are a bit relieved knowing she's at peace and not suffering anymore.

My condolences.

I've been asked to report back on Psycho Neighbour:
- He still has problems with Other neighbour. Psycho neighbour managed to complain about a party that was announced in a friendly note thrown into all tenants' letterboxes...but only a few days after the party because Psycho Neighbour was actually absent the weekend the party was held. So he complained after seeing the note... However, the party wasn't all that noisy in the first place (which I told Other neighbour :devil: ).
- Some time before that Psycho neighbour received a phone call about his problems with Other neighbour that ended in the memorable words "He should shut the fuck up". Everything he said could be heard through the ceiling and he went to the toilet while taking the phonecall. Also, Psycho neighbour sure sounded stoned during that call...
- I got seriously fed up with the noise about three weeks ago and have been sleeping with family. F*cking slamming doors every evening between 23.00 and 24.00 hours wrecked my sleep.
- Last weekend Psycho Neighbour had someone female visit him, possibly his mom. Then he behaved normally. Literally the moment she was out of the door he started behaving like a Psycho again (someone has issues and hides them from others... :rolleyes: ).
- All the plants are flowering so Psycho neighbour's allergies are playing up. He tries to treat them with endless hot showers, which doesn't work. For someone working at a medical facility he's remarkably clueless about his health.
- Did some noise reduction DIY which seems to have helped with some of the softer excessive noise.
- Am looking for new home, but the market really sucks at the moment... :|

My condolences ::KL7::

Shamsiel-kun, I know the Psycho Neighbor sucks, but reading this story is weirdly captivating. Maybe it's just because you've got storytelling talent, lol.

Also, my cat has vanished for 1 week. At this point I'm sure, she's dead. :(

Damn, no sign of her? Do you live in a city/urban/heavily built-up area? This would just tear me up. You may recall, I'm a big cat guy, and my cat is my life; I love him so much, even though he's a crazy bastard.

Was she an older cat, or only little?

I wouldn't give up hope yet. One of my kiddies disappeared for months only to come walking in the door one day. Never did find out where she'd been. :chinscratch:

In someone else's kitchen, being fed, likely. You only have to start worrying when her alternate parents put up a "missing" sign and she's not with you. Although it's not entirely impossible she may just have amassed a large number of parents in your neighbourhood. ^_^

That's probably true. There's a pretty large cat population around here and people do leave food and water dishes outside for them. :wink:

It's been a while since I've had reason to post in this thread, things have been going well overall, life was just starting to get back to normal, but today was a shock.

Today I lost my job, not do to anything I did, and I mean this honestly, I was told I've done a fantastic job the past six months and that I've really done well with adapting feedback I've gotten and following the everything my boss has told me, and other departments have also praised my professionalism and work ethic. The reason I was let go is because even with all the qualifications I've got, I'm just not getting along with the department I work with very well. This again, isn't my fault. I know it's stupid to keep repeating this, but two of the people in the department thought that I was upstaging them by actually doing my job, you know, the thing we get paid to do, were under the (mistaken) impression I was there to take their jobs from them. Now, this isn't the first time I've gone through this song and dance. I'm highly qualified with multiple degrees for my tender age of 26, and I know from past experiences that intelligence can be viewed as a threat by certain people. So, I was let go because my coworkers the past few months have been hostile towards me by yelling and screaming at me over the smallest things. I never yelled back, and I mostly ignored their bullshit, and went back to work. I refused to get on their level and make an ass of myself by yelling back. However, this last time I had enough and brought it to my boss' attention and was let go the next day, but was told that had absolutely nothing to do with it :eyeroll: Sure, I was a temp, but I had been told that as long as I did certain things, I would get hired. I was told that on three separate occasions. Lo and behold that was all bullshit, and I'm gone because other people made the environment hostile. In the long run, I'm not upset that it happened, but it was a job and it paid the bills, which is what really sucks. C'est la vie I suppose...

Anyway, sorry for the mini rant, its just ridiculous to think that doing our job well doesn't even factor into getting a job anymore.
