I can't remember if I posted about this on here but--

So I have a Tesla and it's fucking amazing. On Halloween I was driving back from my rehab group therapy thing [that is to say, 100% sober] and got in a wreck and now it's in the shop and I'm driving a shitty piece of shit fucking motherfucking gas burning rental car and I am in fucking misery.

I drive for work and have a two hour round trip thrice a week for therapy. I bought the Tesla because I was spending like $500/month on gas; now I spend that on my car payment instead. Now I get to do both for a month!

Fucking shoot me in the head

Ram27 12-23-2019 06:07 PM

what's also fun is that Tesla lets you name your car, so you anthropomorphise it and get attached so it hurts even more when it's gone

Sophie's been gone 6 days now

Repair shops suck! I came out of a doctor's office that's about an hour from my house to find that my car wouldn't start. The two year old and I had to ride in a tow truck to the nearest repair shop on the insurance's list. Of course they were closed. I got a ride from my parents, but at this point it started to rain and it was dark. When we were about 10 minutes from home, my kid vomited in her car seat. After scrubbing her and the car seat, I realized that I left my cell phone in the broken down car at the shop. We can't lock that car because unlocking it sets off the alarm for some reason. The next day I called the repair shop to find out that the owner is a real asshole, and only works on foreign cars, which mine is not. Eventually he got around to repairing it anyway, for over $700 and 5 days without the car, and I did get my phone back immediately, but that was definitely not an experience I am looking to repeat.

again, netphoria is the only website that works on this plane.

how can this be? is it "coincidence"? or is there something greater at work?

buzzard 12-25-2019 04:00 AM

What other pre-2007 technology have you tested against?

I was on the Empty Bottle's website looking something else up when I saw this. Searched "walker" on the sp board but didn't see any threads. How about I post it here?

An Evening of The Music of The Cars with...



You read that right, sports fans. Decorated actor and thespian MICHAEL SHANNON is corralling his pals JASON NARDUCY, MATT WALKER, SCOTT LUCAS, and more to bring you the music of THE CARS. No further explanation needed — these names speak for themselves. In the words of Ric Ocasek, "Let's Go."

MplsTaper 12-27-2019 11:13 AM

Let's hear it for Michael Shannon.

FlamingGlobes 12-27-2019 11:55 AM

Michael Shannon is great. Local H are still somehow awesome even after all of these years. I would go to this if it were close by.

buzzard 12-27-2019 07:44 PM

I had my own rollerblade store, but um... I wasn't cutting the mustard in the happiness department.

Nice vid ram, excellent voice quality. Would listen again

Just as a side topic inspired by your accent and the well let’s call it the ‘class’ of your problem, has netpho always had this core of middle class posters, I mean, is that who netphoria has always been, or is this some kind of new development

I want to compile a Best of the Decade 2010-2019 netphoria anthology for further analysis

Ram27 12-29-2019 11:59 PM

cheers thanks

i feel like liking this genre isn't necessarily...correlated with being lower class? i dunno

but fuck me, i've been here since 2011 i do believe. or at least in the SP fan community back the oboards, complaining about mike burns when i could barely play a paradiddle. [got my first drum kit christmas 2011]. what a decade

I might just be a jealous bitch but Ram seems more than middle class to me...

reprise85 12-30-2019 12:24 AM

but for your experiment data, yeah i'm now middle class for the first time since i lived with my parents so there's one for 'it's a new thing'

vixnix 12-30-2019 06:07 AM

I heard that 'rich' is $25m+, these days. So below that is still middle class, maybe - if upper middle? That seems ridiculous.

I dunno. That is probably more to do with measuring 'richness' relative to the extreme levels of private wealth that exist now, rather than any objective kind of measure of wealth. But class is sort of relative, you know???

I agree Ram seems rich rather than middle class. I guess I just never noticed how middle class netpho is, before.

I read an interesting description of middle class as "Able to afford all the things you need, and some of the things you want." and that seems fair.

Thank you for your input into the study and congrats on rejoining the middle class!

in which i bitch about my job:

One of my managers is the most nitpicky, shitty, rule following cunt. First words out of her mouth to me most times our shifts unfortunately coincide are ‘can you restock the soda cooler’

This is an irritating, pointless, slightly challenging task with a priority of like -8 because who the fuck cares. Today she gets pissed at me cause she asked me to do it 3 times. Like I have my actual job to do and literally no one cares about this. ‘Why is this so urgent?’ I ask. ‘Because it’s bugging me!’ ok.*

Closing drivers at our store have to sweep and mop the lobby. Every other manager on a shitty night will say to not worry about it. Dis bitch wants everything perfect always. Tonight she went on and on about how there was a straw wrapper under a table and a bit of dirt, noting that I clearly didn’t give a shit. Spot on. I don’t. She said she won’t close the store with a crew member slacking off. Like we’re in the fucking military or some shit. Like any soul in the fucking world cares about the condition of a pizza shop floor.*

12:30 AM she asks me to take out the trash in the lobby. I have to be back in like 10 hours because my GM, in his words, ‘screwed up’ and scheduled me to open after a late weekend close.*

I’m calling off the next time I have a shift with her fuck this shit.*Also I came in this morning and apparently she fucking left a note that I was slacking off. Like yes I fucking was I had to be back in like 10 hours fuck you

reprise85 01-05-2020 11:52 AM

That's par for the course in retail, it seems like. My manual has 10 hours as minimum turnaround, so totally cool under corporate guidelines.
We have a new manager I really dislike. He's just kind of a prick. But he's also a very big dude (bigger than I ever was by 100+ lbs and I was over 400), and I wonder if I'm doing some projection about myself onto him. But I'm only there once a week, so who cares. This has nothing to do with your story, sorry.

ilikeplanets 01-10-2020 10:26 PM

Some of the old CorningWare I have is listed for $9000 on Ebay. If i see anyone actually paying that I'm about to make $18,000. Stupid.

FlamingGlobes 01-10-2020 11:19 PM

Are we still saying 'cunt' in 2020?

FlamingGlobes 01-10-2020 11:19 PM

Asking for a friend.

guys! this past weekend i saw on spotify that stabbing westward had some new music (first time in about 20 years) and i thought.. hey, i liked them when i was 20, i wonder if they are doing any shows. so lo and behold, there were doing a record release show in hollywood, just a few miles from where i am. it was only $15 and i didn't have any other plans, so i decided to go and see if maybe it'd be enjoyably nostalgic, and if it wasn't, i figured i'd at least hear some good riffs.

it was so bad! seriously, it was terrible.

set aside for the moment the violent melodramatic self-loathing at the center of all their songs, which i'll admit i enjoyed for a time in my 20s, but now i find kind of embarrassing... set that aside. the sound was terrible. the guy's guitar wasn't even audible. so it was really just vocals and drums and some synths (once they got those working) and no f'ing riffs! it was so bizarre, they should figure that out in advance.

also, it was at this "goth club". i was thinking, there is virtually no way to distinguish between the performers and the audience, as their attires were so similar. in fact, maybe like 20 minutes before they went on, i saw a dude walking by with a metal bucket of beers and thought, that looks just like the singer.. or maybe not, there are 10 guys within sight that looks remarkably similar. (it was him)

i considered leaving after 2 or 3 songs because of how bad it was, plus it was quasi-outdoors (under a tented area of the club, so there was a ton of smoke getting into my clothes, etc.. several people near me left. but i thought, let me stick it out and see if they can get this together. they really didn't though. but tons of people appeared to be really into it. it was confusing. i was glad to have brought earplugs with me. and they did play a lot of the songs i had hoped to hear, but still. oh well, good for a laugh.
