David Thorne is the best. You should read his shit on his website here, and not bother with the Chive, which can't even spell "Australian" correctly in their headline.

The best line in that bit:

This my favourite part of his site by far: http://www.27bslash6.com/sad.html

Just got back from a play where all the dancers looked similar to movie actors - one looked like Jennifer Garner, another Saffron Burrows, and the two male leads looked like Andrew Lincoln and Dexter Fletcher.  Weird.

The two personalities that I most dislike are, "The Insufferable Douche" and "The Blithering Idiot".  I work with them both.

The 2 personalities I'm working with at present are the immature 21 year old (who just happens to be my team lead) and 'soldier boy' (31 year old Army reservist) who's into guns and ammo and loves being just a prick to subordinates..
We have fun while we work at times but recently it hasn't been all that enjoyable..

For a week and a half, I didn't have to work with either of them - The team lead's grandfather passed away and soldier boy was on reserve duty. Racked up some overtime and got a crash course in stuff I wasn't trained on yet but I rather enjoyed it (working by myself).
Now they've both returned this week and the team lead thinks that first shift isn't pulling their weight in getting the days work completed so he goes and complains to the manager and now we are having a meeting today at 2pm with 1st shift and my team lead is bragging that he doesn't need this job and he's prepared to quit should things not go well today ::)

I just want to get on the weekend shift ASAP away from all this childish drama!
The manager has already told me that when he feels comfortable with my training, he'll move me to the weekends but if we lose just one person on our shift before hand, there's no telling when or if I will be working weekends  :-[

It's an interesting feeling to see people you thought were just kind of smug tools reveal themselves to be peices of shit, putting it down to 'internetz bravery' eases the sting a little

The thing is, the dumb one isn't so bad.  At least he seems good intentioned.

But the douche really annoys me because he is very knowledgeable, and could share that knowledge with the group.  That, could help things run more smoothly and make the work atmosphere more pleasant.  However, he never misses an opportunity to make himself look good while making someone else in the group (he has done this to every single other person in the group) look incompetent.  The boss has seen through it and told him to be a team player, but it just made him double down on the douchiness.

I hope an opportunity opens up in another group soon, because he makes the workplace miserable.

I know this doesn't really mean anything because it's just words and anyone can say it but I feel so ashamed I have to say something.  I am sorry for how I acted while off of my meds and I know this doesn't make it okay but this morning I went back on them and now I feel really bad about what I said,I am so sorry and wish I had better way to make it up to you guys.  Again so sorry.

You immediately regretted and deleted it, I wouldn't worry about it any more

I only saw the above because Scott quoted it, but how exactly do "meds" work? If you skip a pill, do you immediately plunge into the crazy?

Have you ever taken a med in your life? There's nothing weird about that. Give the guy a break.

I think I'm sensing a pattern.  He flips out and people start talking about him.  He appologizes and starts acting almost normal and people stop talking about him.  So he finds something to irrationaly freak out about and people start  talking about him again.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.
