a "friend" manipulated me into taking a job he was offering me, i took it and did it only to find out he lied about everything and didnt pay me for the work i did do. when i arrived on the job he started asking me to do illegal things, didnt give me the room and board promised and just generally treated me like shit. he was going to pay me only 60 dollars a day for essentially making him over 27,000 dollars a day. its a long story no one will care about but i did learn how to drive a semi truck so like just in case im in a pinch in the future i can drive an 18 speed with 80,000 pounds of weight on it. so i got fucked and lost money on the ordeal and yeah im really pissed. so pissed it almost turned into a physical altercation. i just turned away and packed my shit and left. i barely made it home and my car hit empty on the gas tank. but i am happy i am home tonight in my own bed and i get a hot shower.

that's terrible. I remember you mentioning this job and it sounded like an amazing gig so I imagine it's a huge letdown aside from just being straight up ripped off and out of a job. damn. was this guy someone you used to be close to?

in my case I'm partly mad at myself but it's brought up a lot of shit that was accumulating for the last 18 months I was living at this place and I'm very pissed at ex-roommate too. I could write a novel about my emotionz but highlights:

- was told if I didn't do half of a list of chores decided by roommate and new tenant that I would get 0 of the 400 dollar deposit I paid to her when I moved in (pretty big cleaning fee imo)
- was at the apartment basically by myself this week, moved all my stuff by myself, cleaned the entire bathroom on my hands and knees, mopped the kitchen, mopped my room, washed walls, removed paint (I do art so it gets dirty) cleaned and sterilized the fridge, under the sink, removed mold from all windows etc. etc. basically all the nastiest jobs and I've been under a LOT of stress on top of this so I was exhausted
- don't hear anything for days because roommate is on a mystery trip
-finally hear from her today and she leaves me a snotty voicemail saying I did the job "halfway" so I would only receive half of the deposit
- I basically race to the apartment and ask her to show me
- she basically shows me some dust in some places (ie windowsills which I didn't even claim to dust) and tells me that I'm not a "clean person" so maybe I didn't notice but they did
- I was gonna clean these things to get the rest of my money but I'm getting sooooo heated so I was like fine give me the 200 dollars
- as soon as I say this, Aidan, a dude who I banned from the apartment because he tried to force said roommate to have sex with him (but she forgives him now they're bffs) appears out of nowhere and is all like "hey rachael" (the few times he's been given the opportunity he's done this. he loves taunting me because it's so hilarious that I'm upset about the "misunderstanding")

I only paid her a deposit because at the time I wasn't on the lease so technically an illegitimate tenant

but then I received the 200 dollars from the new tenant. she apparently has no idea how a deposit works or what it's for like what the hell

null123
09-04-2013, 12:08 AM
also I chugged some soda and had a lot of chips and salsa immediately before receiving the voicemail and driving over there and I feel this negatively impacted my ability to deal with the situation

yeah he used to be a really close friend, of 10 years atleast. i am mostly mad at myself for falling into this kind of trap with him. i just dont ever want to trust anyone again. i was sooo excited about the work and i am a hard working motherfcker and a good friend so he loses out more than me i guess. it just sucks in so many ways :/.

i feel your pain about roommate issues. i have had so many horrible roommates i never want one again. last one i had in portland fucked me out of my 400 deposit as well. he wasnt on the lease either, the landlords knew this though and let me rent the place knowing he would be there. he couldnt pass a credit check to get a place and the landlords liked me so much they were willing to turn an eye. i had left the place and had a final inspection and all that before i left but he went behind my back and did some shady deal with the lords and stayed one extra day after i had moved out. i had "sold" him all my furniture (his half of the deposit) on the good graces i would get it all back. so im in another state and 2 months later i get the deposit check in the mail and lo an behold he fucked some shit up during his one day there and the deposit was halved. so i call him up and tell him he owes me some money and he tells me he didnt do damage yadda yadda and starts trying to talk his way ouy of paying me and it was somehow my fault. he tells me to fuck off and hangs up on me and of course i dont get the money from him. i got my revenge though because a month or so later i fly back to portland to do some work and be an extra on portlandia filming. i showed up at his new apartment and beat the shit out of him a few hours before my flight back to slc. i broke his nose and a tooth that i hope cost him more to fix than what he owed. im also going to fuck him up agaij if i ever see him and turn him into police for a robbery he confessed he did to me if he ever comes back to his home in st george utah. im a vengeful fucker.

I kinda fantasized about punching her in the face on the drive over and I think in a way that would have been more honorable than some of the insults to her appearance I brainstormed in anticipation of it getting nasty but ultimately she was the only one who delivered any epithets and I think this will weigh on her conscience. she was trying to be all nice when I was on my way out and offered me dishes to take and was like "good luck rach" (sooooo thoughtful) and I just closed the door

well he wasnt in hiding. he moved in with his brother in law after i left who happened to be a friend as well. we also all worked at the same place. yes, words were exchanged and an argument ensued and i decided to escalate it to something physical which he was also happy to engage in so i didnt have to chase him down the street or come up behind him at a bar and tap him on the shoulder. i just went to his house, knocked on the door and things went from there.

i think portland does have a bad side to it there are a lot of shady drug addicts and losers everywhere i guess but i think theres also a lot of people rooming with each other there who are into scamming and fucking each other over because everyone can be so desperate to get by. the petty theft and crime there is pretty high, its a non violent kinda place but it seems like there was always robberies.

Today I slept extra late. It was my day off. I work second shift, so I end up staying up/sleeping late anyway. I got up and ate some trail mix and a turkey sandwich. Then I watched the movie The Dilemma on TV. I didn't care for it, but I started so I finished it. Didn't bother putting real clothes on until movie was over.

Then I got dressed and went to the pet store to get cat stuff. Then to target for human food and swiffer wetjet pads. When I got home, I made dinner which was chicken thighs and rice. Then I cleaned the floor.

I'm now playing with shelter cats online/editing pictures. I'm sorry about the shitty roommate situation. I'm pretty sure I would get into quiet a shouting match with people like that, but I don't know. You seemed to have handled it pretty calmly so that's probably better.

yeah that's terrible. I understand there are mental/emotional issues that sometimes lead people to tolerate the sickest most sadistic violent people in their lives but it's still crazymaking to deal with the excuses

an interesting coincidence happened about 2-3 weeks ago when I was at a grocery store at night. I was walking back to my car which was parked pretty far out and not as many cars or people around. as I'm getting close to my car I realize that the dude several paces in front of me looks a lot like Aidan, attempted rapist. I get to my car, and what do you know, his is parked right next to mine. he looks over at me and immediately says "hey rachael" (just like in the apt) and I kinda freeze up and say "hey" because I can't really absorb what's happening and he smiles at me and says "how's it going?" and I get in my car as fast as I fucking can

The first one turned out to be a sketchy group of "sports photographers" that basically went to soccer tournaments and pleaded with coaches to let us take pictures of their team. It was overnight and they drove us up to VA Beach and skipped out on paying the bill they owed the tournament organizer. Also they threatened to leave behind one of the people that came along because she stopped working at a certain point. This was by far one of the most unpleasant job experiences. I collected my check and never returned their calls after that.

The second one turned out to be pretty well paying job editing real estate videos. However, the couple (small business ran by a married couple) were insufferable. I managed to stay for the money for about 5 or 6 months. After that I got a real job with people that weren't fucking awful.

Chat History
Welcome to Bright House Networks. My name is John, how may I help you?
John ******: I am not currently at home but am wondering if my reconnect service call was successfully completed today.
John: Hello friend! Thank you for contacting Bright House Networks’ Live Chat service. My name is John.
John: We appreciate you contacting us regarding your account. I'll be happy to check into that for you! Can I have your complete address please?
John ******: r
John: Thank you.
John: After I help with this, have any exciting plans for the weekend?
John ******: Nope.
John: It looks like this reconnect was not done as it required us to contact you to reconnect.
John ******: um.
John ******: Why?
John ******: It was not necessary for them to contact me to disonnect.
John ******: And my wife was at home during the appointment time.
John: The work order detailed that you would be home. They were unable to contact you by phone prior to the order.
John ******: Man.
John ******: That's a little bit irritating since I told the agent who booked the reconnect that the only phone I have requires an internet connection.
John ******: And at the time that he bookedit, he said that very fact was stated explicitly on the work order.
John: It is stated on the work order.
John: Here is the note by the technician:
John: NO ONE HOME CALLE BOTH NUMBER IN ACCT ARRE NOT WORKING NO OTHER WAY TO VERIFY NOT HOME YELLOW BLDG BLACK TRIM BLACK DOOR
John ******: so the technician did not even attempt to reconnect the services from outside the building?
John: We will not do so if there is a requirement to be home. We must contact the customer before we start work.
John: I can reschedule this for you. Our next available date for this is Tuesday.
John ******: But there's no such requirement for disconnecting services.
John ******: HAHAHAHA
John ******: that is hilarious.
John ******: tuesday
John ******: you're kidding right?
John: I apologize. That is the next available appointment to reschedule.
John ******: That is not acceptable.
John ******: Pretty sure I can have centurylink out here sooner than tuesday.
John: One moment please...
John ******: also my door is green, not black.
John: I'm sorry you feel that way. This is a reconnection of services. We are required to contact our customers on these reconnections. If we are unable to, we must reschedule at the next available time we have.
John ******: I'm not sorry for feeling this way. I'm sorry for your company's fuck up.
John: I apologize. Can I help with anything else today then?
John: I apologize, but if you are still there, please let me know. I’ll need to close this chat unless I receive a reply within the next 2 minutes.
John ******: I'm still here.
John ******: You have nothing sooner than Tuesday.
John ******: I find that difficult to believe.
John: That's correct.
John ******: The tech who was assigned to the work order couldn' t even correctly identify the color of my front door.
John ******: My wife was home and was waiting.
John ******: I already had to wait two days for this reconnect, and now I have to wait 3 more because the tech decided to shirk his responsibilities, and poorly at that.
John: I can reschedule for Tuesday. I'm sorry you feel that our technician had performed poorly. I will send in a report of this.
John ******: or her. tech coulda been a woman, right?
John ******: It really does not concern me whether a report is filed.
John ******: What does concern me is that I will not have internet access in my home for nearly a week.
John ******: So what are you going to do to get a technician out to my house tomorrow?
John: I apologize. I will be unable to fulfill that request.
John ******: Who will be able to fulfill that request?
John: To be able to get an appointment we would have to force it in. In this situation, we do not force in appointments.
John: There would not be a department here that can help you with getting an appointment tomorrow.
John ******: There's evidence to show that the technician did not even show up, so because the wrong tech was assigned to this work order, I'm supposed to wait another three days?
John ******: Is this how friends treat one another? We are friends after all. You said so yourself, John.
John: I'm sorry. I can only do what I can do here. These are the options we have available.
John ******: "I can only do what I can do". That is a categorically true statement.
John: Would you like to reschedule for Tuesday, or was there anything else I can help with today?
John ******: I thought we were friends John.
John ******: When you called me "friend", I was filled with a warm fuzzy feeling on the inside.
John ******: RIght down in the cockles of my heart.
John ******: Does that mean nothing to you.
John: I wish there was more that I could do, but the schedule is strict and I have to follow regulation here.
John ******: That's kind of messed up, man.
John ******: Would you agree that this is messed up?
John: I would agree with that. However this will not change when I can schedule another appointment.
John ******: You already took my money, though.
John ******: This was the measure taken to avoid the COD.
John ******: I was hoping that in doing that, I would have communicated my trust in Bright House Networks.
John ******: Because that's what friends do.
John ******: They trust each other.
John: We appreciate your taking care for the previous balance on your account. We are required to collect this before we can reconnect services.
John ******: I also paid one month in advance.
John ******: So I've already paid for the upcoming month of service which was to have started this evening.
John: When a disconnection at the pole has occurred. We are required to collect the first month in advance and a reconnection fee as well.
John ******: So in other words, you already have my money.
John: When we reconnect.
John: We can reconnect on Tuesday.
John: Any time in between is not charged to your account as it is not active.
John ******: Yep,and I was told that the first month could be collected at the time of reconnect or over the phone at the time of scheduling.
John ******: I really don't care. I gave you my money with the expectation that the tech wouldn't flake.
John ******: And then they did.
John ******: And now you're telling me to wait three additional days before I can get internet in my own home.
John ******: Some "friend" you are.
John: One moment please...
John ******: Yep.
John: I'm sorry. I cannot help to get an appointment for you tomorrow.
John ******: Put it in for Tuesday, then.
John: The first available we have is 8-10am. We also have later. What is the best for you?
John ******: But I'm letting you know right now, John, that this has put tremendous strain on our friendship.
John ******: 8-10 is fine.
John: We will need a good number to reach, to verify you will be home. This does not need to be yourself. We can call a relative that can verify you are home. What is the best number for our pre-call?
John ******: my entire family is effectively dead to me.
John ******: so there is no good number.
John ******: im not sure what is so hard to understand about this extremely basic concept.
John: On this I will put No Customer contact on the work order then.
John ******: My only phone relies on an internet connection to be functional.
John ******: What will you do to guarantee that this tech isn't going to lie about the color of my door?
John: He will not need to. There is no requirement to contact you or anyone at this residence. Therefore they will simply reconnect and check in the work order.
John ******: And that is something I really need to wait until tuesday for?
John: That's correct. We have all of our technicians booked until that day
John: I have that all scheduled. Can I help with anything else today?
John ******: So customer contact was necessary today, as dictated by policy, but not necessary for Tuesday?
John: It was how it was scheduled.
John ******: Is this a special exception that's made for certain days of the week where the tech isn't rushing to spend their paycheck at the bar?
John: That appointment required contact.
John ******: I'm thinking this particular tech got a head start given their inability to identify the color of my door.
John: One moment please...
John ******: Ok.
John: Alright. Can I help you with anything else today?
John ******: That's a kind of presumptive question considering you haven't yet done much to help me.
John ******: Is there a supervisor I can talk to.
John: I have only done what is available for me to do. I am not going to presume what a technicians motive was in possibly not going to your residence. I do not have that information to be able to do so. I have done what is in my ability to do today, and I am asking if I can help you with anything else, because you are still here.
John ******: Or "chat with". Whatever.
John: Our Chat supervisor has gone home and is currently not available. A supervisor will be available by phone.
John: Please call us at 1-877-892-3279.
John ******: Incredible.
John: If you are calling now. I need to end this chat.
John ******: With what phone shall I call, dear friend.
John: If you do not have a phone. You can contact us back tomorrow morning and a supervisor will be available then.
John ******: I might have to consider that.
John: One moment please...
John: Is there anything else today?
John ******: One moment please...
John: I apologize, we do not have anything else to accomplish in this chat. Can I help you with anything else today?
John ******: Yeah, actually.

I like that.

It reminds me, in a protracted way, of something I read in a comment on metafilter once. The person was an audio editor for NPR, and one of their tasks was to edit out all the uhs and ums and throat clearing, coughing, sneezing sniffling and all the weird noises that would sound really unpleasant especially in the form of most NPR interviews.

So they took all these noises and edited them together in a 20 minute track that they would put at the end of their "party" playlist in order to get people to leave.

The thought of it still makes me laugh.

I don't have pictures Trotsky but I just found out it made it into the gallery (!!!!) so I'm gonna take a pic of it in its new home tomorrow hopefully.

And yes reprise it's true, a guy a few terms ahead of me said exactly that. They tear you down so they can build you back up again. However the collection of pieces I got torn down for were ones I really didn't put any love into, I rushed because I was just trying to check a box and I think that really came across. They were not fully realized designs. This new thing is the first piece I have really felt ownership of in a while.

And yeah, this sculpture is the final for the class that I had that horrible midterm in lol

reprise85
08-15-2014, 01:28 AM
well congrats.

the tearing down to build you back up again sounds sorta abusive but hey i guess that's just how it works, maybe it's good for art students. or maybe like you said it's just because you didnt put effort into the other ones.

im just always suspicious of things that tear you down on purpose just to save you from the hole they put you in

laundry day. not excited.

also i somehow lost my ID. nice waste of money to get a new one. i'm hoping it shows up in the laundry today. i checked all the pants pockets but we'll see.

well i had my wallet in my work vest pocket thing and the vest was unbuttoned and that makes it easy for things to drop out of it.

i didnt realize until a few minutes later when, frantically looking for my wallet, i found it sitting in the toilet like a large, multi-layered turd. it was beyond repair. luckily i had no money in there and nothing really got damaged besides the turd-wallet itself.

i accidently sent my wallet through the wash the other day. all the bills had a blue tint to them but miraculously no cashier looked twice and my credit cards still worked

The plaque doesn't explain much, it just says my name, my major and term (Illustration 2nd term), the instructor and class (Design 2) and the assignment (translate the design principal of "figure and ground" to a dimensional form). Oddly it doesn't mention the materials but those are plaster and rope.

cool...did you have a concept in mind? architecture? abstract statement? or just use of materials..? it looks cool. i would have never guessed plaster. i thought it was styrofoam. congrats on your inclusion in a gallery. i have yet to be included in a gallery, but that's something huge i want to achieve one day. to even just have one painting of mine in a gallery or better yet, an entire gallery of just my work. i suck though.

I actually made the mockup out of styrofoam so that's funny you say that. During the process of making it I was mostly consciously aware of its formal properties and trying to make an elegant object using what I know about sculpture and good design in general. The assignment for me was "figure and ground" which basically meant integrating two elements (the rope and plaster) such that neither one overpowered the other. But my personal taste in materials and way of executing this concept definitely pushed the piece into a more emotional territory for me.

When I look at it now, especially in contrast to all of the other work in the gallery and that other people did for the final, I see it as a response to the intense anxiety I was feeling at the time and that I tend to feel in general. It's like the sculptural equivalent of a security blanket to me. "Architectural" is a quality that always seems to come up when I make sculpture even though I don't do it intentionally, I think there is something about the grace and order and high-mindedness of architecture that is so attractive to me, I can't get away from it. The tactile nature of this piece was also important to me, even though people can't touch it it seems to come across. Especially if you see it in person or in a clearer photo, there is a subtly different surface to many of the faces of the blocks, it has a softness and "humanness" to it that I think is unique to plaster which is why it's one of my favorite thing to work with. I also really wanted to have an actually soft, fabric-type element to take it that much further out of the realm of the hard-edged, laser cut, acrylic, 3d printed, speedform, vector etc type stuff that tends to be popular at my school. I see this object as stable, soft, approachable yet (hopefully) elegant, and quiet.

And you shouldn't feel so discouraged about getting into a gallery. I mean this gallery is in my school so obviously I already had a big "in" there. If you want to show work in a gallery there are many ways to go about doing so, I'm always getting notices about upcoming shows that they want artists to submit work to that fits a particular theme, so you should tap into the local channels that provide that information. You could also get together with a couple other artists and rent a space for a group show. Solo shows are obviously the longterm goal for gallery artists but I think generally you have to work your way up to that unless you're independently wealthy and can snap your fingers and make it so. But just getting a piece in a gallery is very doable.

The rope placement wasn't that planned, I kinda decided along the way where it would be. It wasn't included in the mockup so I was just seeing how it all looked after each step and what to do next. I like how it doubles the real estate the whole thing gets on the pedestal

i always hated being in gallery shows because on one hand i want to talk to people about my work but i don't want to linger eagerly making eye contact with every person that comes by and on the other hand i don't want to be talking with my friends all night to where it creates a situation where most people would not bother intruding.

my solution was eventually to stand outside smoking cigarettes all night and coming back in for drinks and snacks

i like the sculpture though i've always been a sucker for plastered or painted rope w/ wood

idk if you got any sort of good feedback but i would say if you wanted to continue working with rope start looking up cool ways to tie knots and that sort of thing.

edit: or even exotic rope-binding techniques - the way the rope is made etc

null123
09-12-2014, 05:55 PM
That is a good idea. I actually looked into a lot of knots and decided to keep it simple, I think these knots are called "blood knots" which is cool. Unfortunately I don't know when the next time will be that I have a chance to focus on sculpture.

And yeah talking about art is so fun, idk I can never shut up. It makes me want to consider teaching after I graduate... I think I might be better at talking about art than making it.
