and srsly, wtf at librarian needing to be somehow 'owned' by guys. I've known as many dude librarians as women, so they can take their guybrarian and file it under 819 (Literature) which according to wiki is currently unassigned and shall now be reinstated as "Satire & Humor (failed"

just want to reiterate that as far as i can tell, this is not what "guybrarian" is about - i've never met a male librarian who wants to be called a guybrarian and i've only ever heard women say it (jokingly)

Any marketing campaign that utilizes some variant of "Make your voice heard!" or "The choice is yours!" with respect to consumption or something equally trivial. Oh, thank you for allowing me the agency to let the world know how I put my toilet paper on the spindle! TWO kinds of gum in one pack?! At last I am free! P.S. Go die.

This morning I'm in at the course. Can't sign into the computer for some reason, every time I try i'm denied access. so I've told the teacher and am assuming she'll have to call the computer tech guy. so I'm at a loose end and get a book out.
Turns out that computer gets turned off when I went to the toilet and it does turn on and let me in. But teacher says 'could you do me a favour and put the book away it looks out of place on a computer course'
Like I'm supposed to sit there and twiddle my thumbs or something while waiting for a machine I should expect to be working properly to give me the essential access. Or like a book is a disease?
Apparently there's somebody else in the class who's had to unplug then replug their computer every morning since the class started last week. & nothing's been done about it.
& we're all supposed to be adults & the machine is central to the course.
Weird priorities. Am I supposed to just dismiss it all as being down to 'the cutbacks' ?
One of the wheels on my chair fell off this morning too. Strewth.

Any expressed disapproval of reading in favor of doing NOTHING, for the idiotic reason that you might appear to be otherwise mentally engaged, predictably infuriates me. Although these days, being a grown up makes it better because you an answer back, in a way, as long as you put the onus of mentally engaging you on the other person. Like, "Do you have something else you'd rather have me do while I wait for this shortcoming of your equipment to be remedied?"

WTF, you're a student in this course? Like if you were an employee (teacher or whatever) maybe reading a book would be NAGL, but as a student?

Wearing the wrong shoes on a rainy day. I put on my comfy flats to wear to work, but it started raining. I went out at lunch and now my socks are completely wet. Waaah. also RAGGH

and the worst is that I saw on the weather report yesterday that it was going to rain all week, but it STILL didn't raise an alarm when I put on my dry-weather-only shoes this morning. Stupid brain.

Ugh. I hate when people freestyle rap on public transit. This guy is at least rapping to a friend, I guess.

Singing in full voice on the train is also terrible.

Update: this guy sort of redeemed himself in my opinion by seamlessly transitioning from rap to "I'm hungry, I'm sleepy, I'm hungry and sleeeepy," then flopping over onto his friend (girlfriend). Lol.

American plumbing, in particular toilets make me IA. Also sewer lines, as of today. I've probably ranted about this before but seriously the toilets carry way too much water and nowhere near the amount of waste they need to, totally inefficient and unless you live in a brand new house, your plumbling likely dates from the 70's or earlier. Houses don't have downpipes, ugh it's just a waking nightmare.

Our house is 100 years old, or almost. And our sewer has been getting attacked by tree roots ever since we bought the place, so we've always had to be careful with our water usage because the cleanout will blow if you look at it sideways. We finally bit the bullet and had the problem part of the sewer line replaced, the part that runs through the back yard (ie where all the tree roots are). I was under the impression we were dealing with either deteriorated clay or metal pipe. Nope.
1950's era TARPAPER pipe.
Seriously America. WTF.

haha, yeah, that is really the only one that would fail. My parents just had theirs replaced. I don't get why the hell you'd have that if your house is that old -- that means it was replaced already, with that crap!

Basically they used that during WW2 and then people were like "eh, whatever" and kept using it until nearly 1970 in places with decent housing codes, and even longer elsewhere. It was really only meant as a temporary-use product, but people were all into saving money.

Yeah in the wiki it says it was primarily used as electrical conduit, and oil companies used it but ugh omg it fails so they stopped...which didn't seem to deter anyone from using it for plumbing. Lol oldentimes.

Jesus, I had no idea such a thing existed.

Re rapping on public transit: I've witnessed it enough that I think it's a thing. Some people do it softly (like someone singing along to music on headphones) but the ones that bug me are those who project. Usually on trains or platforms, usually during off-hours.

There is one guy who I see at the El station near my work who is always doing it, and he seems like he might have mental health problems b/c he gets in others' personal space raps *at* them. He doesn't really look scary or out of place amongst the university students - early 20s, bookbag sometimes, decent clothes - but he's a dick.

He scared the PISS out of me once as I was waiting in one of the plexiglass shelters. I'd noticed him on the platform but I was reading and I tuned him out, and he slammed his palms on outside of the plexiglass wall I was leaning on. I jumped and screamed and he looked me in the eye, said "haha" (not actually laughing) and walked off.

He's gonna do that to the wrong person someday and wind up on the tracks.

Public rappers/singers don't make me IA (unless I'm already grumpy and am perched to be IA at anything that disrupts a quite train ride) but sometimes they make me nervous if they are very drunk or using public performance as an aggression tactic. When someone is wearing headphones and rapping/singing along nice and loud, I'm mostly amused because I'm pretty sure they sound a lot cooler to themselves than they do to the rest of us.

People who use LOLCAT speak in real life, and yes they do exist, I feel bad about it because I dont know if it's so much different than me quoting Lasagna Cat videos all the time, just people who intentionally mess up their grammar or pronunciation to match some internet meme or some rap song they heard (people who instinctively say "errrbody" or "sammich"), dunno why I'm so mad at this

I'm able to tolerate most public rappers, but the ones that bother me are the ones being like horrifically violent and/or misogynist when doing so. I remember one guy on the red line, describing how we would decapitate and disembowel everyone on the car with him. It would be like, "guy in the red coat, I'll make your body float, cut your head off clean, then eat your spleen" (not verbatim, but yes the lyrics were that awful and would be laughable if it wasn't for the context). Thing was he looked like any other white Columbia student. Maybe it was "performance art".

Not actually IA, more 0__o:

It is really not acceptable to eat your home fries from Tupperware with a fork - with a little ketchup dipping puddle, even - while standing on a packed rush hour bus. (stylishly casual early 20s woman with complicated, angular hair)

jvc, that's pretty crazy. I've heard some violent rap on the train (and tons of misogynist stuff) but never incorporating specific passengers.
