    I spent all day preparing for and looking forward to a Skype job interview at 11PM (it's for a job in Seoul so it's the middle of the day there). The interviewer didn't show up.

    So, I thought I'd turn this into a rant thread. It seemed more appropriate than the sad pandas thread.

    I had a voicemail from work when I got home Tuesday asking me not to come in at the usual time, because they had to "do something". Got the call two hours later than when I'm supposed to show up. When I got to work, I was told that my company hasn't been paying rent, and they had to wait and see if we would be allowed in the building. I went through the same routine again today, and will again tomorrow. Needless to say, this does not fill me with hope for my prospects with this company. It's a shame, because the people I work with are nice and I enjoy the work.

    And when I got to work yesterday and today, two separate assholes triple parked over compact car spots. Which will be a lead in to my next rant...

    I dropped something heavy and metal on my toe, and I wasn’t wearing shoes.

    I didn’t make it out of my neighborhood before someone started tailgating.

    There is no coffee at work, and there is no water supply to the restrooms in this building.

    So, the AC doesn’t appear to be working, and the building is down to one elevator. Which only affects me because I have to go to another floor to use the restroom.

    Also, it took me 1 1/2 hour to get to work, and 1 1/ hour to get home because of two separate wrecks on the same stretch of interstate.

    Everything fucking hates me today. I just wanted to post this gif of pollen raining from a tree, because I’m having trouble breathing.

    I hope the new neighbors who moved in upstairs are really enjoying their grape-stomping career!

    Okay so right after I typed that sentence I heard a knock on my door and just about had a fucking heart attack thinking it was those exact neighbors (cause yesterday there was a weird incident where I happened to see one of them reach for my door like he was gonna knock before his wife said to cut it out), but it was only the maintenance guys I forgot were coming by today. I am literally in the messiest, just-showered-and-not-ready-for-visitors state imaginable and I tried to pretend things weren't awkward by GIVING THEM TWO THUMBS UP ON THEIR WAY OUT I hope someone comes to my home and buries me in the woods thanks for tuning in

    figured I should stop blowing up the sad pandas thread and anyway this didn't make me sad, it made me super angry. I've been slowly contacting my parents less and less because of reasons. They came over unannounced today and hung out for a while. My mom had to use the bathroom while she was here and was in there for a while. After they left I went in the bathroom and found this. It's cigarette ash. I don't smoke, so I know it's hers. Like...you couldn't have fucking ashed in the sink like a normal person who doesn't have an ashtray? Or at least in a little pile on the floor? Or, I dunno, fucking told me it was there? Not only did she ash all over the place, it's like she stomped on it for fun so the floor is all greasy and I couldn't just sweep it up, I had to mop.

    Maybe I'm overreacting, I don't know, but it seems super fucking disrespectful and like she was just trying to be an ass, because there's no way that was an accident. Who fucking does this shit?

    What the fucking fuck? How about go the fuck outside? I am a smoker, but I don't smoke in the house and I don't think I could ever in someone else's house. It's rude and disrespectful. You excuse yourself and go outside if you need to smoke that badly.

    They usually ask before they do, and I let them smoke 1 or 2 before asking them to go outside. You'd think that me letting them smoke inside when I don't even smoke would be enough, but no, I guess they need to make my home their literal ashtray? I don't know.

    That is insane and totally disrespectful. It's not their house, they're guests.

    I haven't heard anything from my company in weeks. They posted an ad for for my position on zip recruiter. It's possible that they need more people, and are still sorting things out. But have some common courtesy. I'm tempted to write nasty reviews about them on every job board I can find. Anyway, I'm less than pleased.

    Things like this are why I drink.
