    I'm presenting to a dozen people from a large overseas multinational oil company tomorrow, and all I know is that they'd like me to have five slides. Fornicate my entire life.
    I did this exact scenario once. Hope you do better than I did

    Weirdly, that's is kinda my specialty, although it still bugs me. Oh well, I have an opening in my calendar, assuming I don't get dragged into any forum UCP arguments.

    Just talk to them about oil and gas
    I think ES should shake things up a bit and talk about gas and oil.

    Shaw and their fucking games. I don't want to fucking haggle like I'm at a used car dealership, just give me the same fucking deal that you're offering new customers.

    I wonder if this will ever end. Because fuck it gets old.

    They just lost me for 2 years over it.

    When people make a statement and put a question mark at the end? Especially for thread titles? Perhaps they need to watch more Jeopardy?

    Work just put in a new thing where all external emails now have a header at the top of the emails in bold and highlighted text mentioning it was external and to think before opening attachments/clicking links.

    Sucks because now i can't see the first few sentences of the email when i look at my inbox since it just shows this darn text. Now i have to actually click into the email to read it whereas before i could delete a few emails just based on the preview.

    What's worse is the ones where it actually modifies the [Subject] line and now you won't see it when you sort by Subject, etc. So dumb.

    People getting pissed at you for not moving your car when you are actually parked in a parking spot. Just had some dickhead tooting his horn, giving me the finger then driving around me after I didnt move for a few minutes and giving me shit. Hey arsehole I paid for this car park right here. This was on 11th Ave SW and about 10th St SW on the right hand side of the road. And after he had fucked off another guy did the same thing.

    Also the mcdonalds on 17th / 36th st SW - always giving you the wrong shit or none of your shit right. Usually they either put no nugget sauce in or always only put in sweet and sour sauce. Today the drive thru lady cut me off before I was finished giving my order and when I went to pay I said "and my drink is a regular coke thanks" the lady said "oh I thought you said diet coke. When I got to the serving window I explicitly told them regular coke - the guy shows me hes putting regular coke in - it turns out its fucking diet coke again.

    old people who treat email like text messaging. I have one coworker who will send me a question by email, and as I'm typign the response, he sends anotehr on the same topic, so I revise my response again. Then, in reply to my fairly detailed technical response, he send:"Cool!"

    I'm not sure if he really knows what I'm talking about, or he's giving me approval for the actions I've taken, or if he's going to ask even more follow-up questions in five minutes time. He could just text me.

    Got an invite to the company Christmas party, the "extended" company that has 100+ employees, not just my little division. Within minutes of the invite, I learned that some guy named Scott "can't wait to get down." Super Scott, really super.

    OMG, I was just going to write about this. Hilarious.

    I was going to say: Yes, thanks Steve for asking all of Western Canada if you could purchase 3 tickets to the Christmas party for an extra "friend"...

    I actually did this for our company Christmas party this year... A few days after our son was born I RSVP'd for our Christmas party and hit "Reply All" to all 300+ people on the email chain asking if I could bring our newborn.

    It was confirmed by ~ 30 people that I can indeed bring the newborn.

    I blame the lack of sleep.

    When you put a saved search on kijiji and every 2 hours for weeks, the same ad keeps getting removed and readded, making me think there is a new ad I want to look at.
