Your “Riding That Sugar High” Friday Evening Open Thread

Latest posts by theeWeeBabySeamus (see all)

Last night as I was driving home, I noticed multiple hordes of hooligans roaming the street and looking for trouble it seemed.  They were in disguise so as not to be identified.  It was a scene right out of “A Clockwork Orange “.

I watched as they systematically went door to door and shook down the homeowners for, of all things…. candy.  As the evening went on and they got more and more sugared up, I could hear them yelling and shouting and probably inflicting even more violence and pain than earlier.

Now, where I live is at the end of the long road, and we have a looooong dark driveway.  For this reason I rarely have to worry about these types of invasions (THAT part is actually true).  Yet I always buy some candy just in case I need to appease them in order to buy back my life.  I don’t believe we’ve had any of them show up here in the past four years, but I still buy the candy.  And then usually eat it myself.

It’s mostly those little fun size things.  Rarely full bars.  I mean this ain’t Kingshead Island around here…. capice?

But I digress…

If you see any gangs who look like this:

You should not confront them directly.  Lock your doors and call the authorities.  I’m sure they’d like to know about this pint-sized theft ring.

That’s what I did.  Locked my doors, turned off all the lights, hid in the bathroom and ate as much candy just as fast as I could.  You know, to foil their plan.  Just in case.

On an unrelated note, I don’t feel so good today.

“Emoluments wtf. But most amendments fuck them too” le Trump
But since someone likes TJ so much heres a better tj quote
I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”

Poofy shirts, jean jackets, and mullets… quite an evil spell

TheRevanchist

So, I just got done typing this email:

All,

Recently, we have had some cleanliness issues in the front office restrooms. The restrooms have had liquid on the floors, which is not only unsanitary, but is also a slip hazard. Toilets have not been flushed after use. Seats have had waste upon them.

The restrooms are for communal use. The expectation if that everyone makes sure they clean up after themselves in a civilized manner. That means making sure the bathrooms are in usable shape for the next person.

This should be a common courtesy, as we all use the same facilities. Please clean up after yourselves.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. We want this to be an environment where people can feel comfortable using the bathrooms.

Kind Regards,

How hard is it to flush your damn turds and not piss all over the floor?

BrettFavresColonoscopy

About a four?

Game Time Decision

If anything like my work, it’s very hard (phrasing) I cannot image what these people do at home

Gratliff

When I worked in the saw mill, we used to literally piss on the side of the building to avoid having to lose time walking to the bathroom. I also struggled to deal with the fact that I saw many people come out of a bathroom stall after shitting and not wash their hands before going back to work.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Non-hand-washing after shitting worries me a lot less in a sawmill than in, say, a restaurant.

I just can’t wrap my head around taking a shit and being like “nope, this is fine as is”

I am not imposing opinion upon the subject, but according to the custodian at my workplace, for all 24 of her years working there, the women’s restroom has consistently been far more disgusting than the men’s. Just saying.

*Not even counting the sanitary disposal.

TheRevanchist

When I worked at a department store back in college, the women’s room always had piss on the floor and graffiti everywhere. The men’s was so much better. The theory was that women had kids, but kids don’t don’t stuff up toilets with feminine product.

King Hippo

1) I have daughters

2) The above checks out

At one job we had a case where the womens stalls walls were covered in shit and security had to go keycard records and external hallway video to find out who did it. Turns out the company was doing a lose most pounds in 3 months competition and someone was using laxatives to pass the weight ins and just lost control when bending over to the stall.

Gatoraids

Equal opportunity had another job where most every day after 2ish a certain stall in the mens room would be clogged and unflushable. Lead to a number of people signing a note including a “you stinky bastard when we catching you doing this you are going to be fired” and taped it on the wall of the stall to get this fiend to stop

King Hippo

You would think. Don’t even get me started on kids and their attention to “hygiene”
