GM Milestone: Achieved.

Today: one of my players intentionally climbed into a purple worm's mouth, while enchanted to be extra tasty, to force the purple worm to eat him.

Both: he and the purple worm survived the encounter.

There's: got to be some kind of achievement for this.

Jondera: that is freakin' fantastic! I don't know what to award you with, but I agree-- it seems like something that deserves a reward.

Now: time to bring down the mood.
Dislikes: My city's utility services. Or at least some of the people that work for them.
They: disconnected my internet today, then denied it and said I was on my own getting it hooked back up.
 


Then: when dinner comes around, I'm spent, and it's time to get pizza.
And: these bastards were too high to remember that I ordered food.
 


Is it: really so much to ask that people do their goddamned jobs?
Apparently: yes.

It: hadn't even crossed my mind to record these situations as they were happening.
Maybe: I'm just extremely cynical right now, but I imagine recording the cops wouldn't have gone over well, and might have ended with them taking a "paid holiday" if they escalated the situation upon seeing a camera.

I have: considered putting up security cameras to monitor the location that they keep working. Because they say they're going to be out here 3 or 4 more times in the coming weeks.
But: I doubt having them on camera doing this would make a damned bit of difference. I'd almost expect them to say "lol, yep, it was us, have fun fixing it."
And: I've looked around my property, and there's nowhere to place a camera that has a good view of where they work along with the cord. The pole is on a corner of my property...

It's: sad as hell that I'm considering security cameras to try to protect myself from government employees. I've been told that I live in "the ghetto" (I don't), but I trust my neighbors a hell of a lot more than I've trusted any city official I've seen here or interacted with.

Wife: coming home from doctor appointment
hits: a huge pothole

Few miles later: tire indicator, and thump thump thump sound
Luckily: AAA to the rescue

But, $300 later: new tire, rim, and new matching tire on other side too
And wife will be home, very, very late.

Seriously?? That is appalling especially in food services. Kudos for keeping your cool but really, why can't you blame them? Work like that might suck but it's not an excuse.

We've been fortunate to have had good run-ins with local utilities. It hurts to hear of your experiences: behavior that any of those people wouldn't put up with themselves. Sad times: indeed. We're just peons in the vast world of companies like Google, Comcast, and other giants.

Lighten the mood: oh look, more snow
Grr: it's MARCH not January
Boo: coldest February since the 30s
Grr: more snow and cold forecast
Cool: won't be long and if someone says "since the 20s" we can say "which ones?"

Likes: One of my co-workers just recently retired, and gets to spend more time with her family.

Dislikes: I must now cover her territory, which is a roaring dumpster fire as she knew she was retiring and didn't care. They told me not to worry though, they should have a replacement in 6-8 months...

Until then, I have the distinct joy of getting to cover double the territory for the same pay. I've had to train or retrain more people in the last month in that territory than I did in almost the entirety of last year in mine, trying to clear her backlog, and I'm still booked solid until June. ~_~

They say they'll take care of me on my next performance eval, but if they don't, I might have to go full Milton on them

Hoping for the best for you Imveros, but this is one of the most often spoken lies by HR ever.
