    I hadn't considered a developmental issue. I thought they just casted an actor that was about six years older than the character he was playing.

    Either way, the point seems to be safety features that help you when you're mind is focused on something else. Fair enough. They could have accomplished that by getting to a bathroom on time, and then it all would have been perfectly normal.

    If it was advertising spill-proof seats, then I could see it kind of making sense, but even then there has to be a less bizarre way to go about it.

    Having said all that, we're talking about it so I guess on that level the ad works. Having said that, though, I was so thrown off by the storyline that if I hadn't been told I would have never known it was for a Hyundai Santa Fe.

    Maybe I missed the mark on that. Had happened before. But then again if that's the case the commercial males even less sense. Overall, not a great commercial.

    I expected a better rant skr since this commercial was quite gross. Now I know if I can't hold it, I will look for a hyundai.

    Further thoughts: Who approved this? Why are women always getting into near misses only to be saved by the hyundai driver assistance features? You would think that the pee would come out then, maybe it did and the kid just didn't say anything.

    That I'm able to convey any kind of coherent message is pure shithouse luck. Some hit, most don't.

    Parents live in a different reality than I do, so maybe somewhere to someone this ad makes sense. Either way, I'm not the target market for Hyundai so what the fuck do I know.

    They seem to have taken out the pissing himself part of the ad. I can't believe Hyundai listened to me. It'd do you fucks good to take my advice once in a while too, by the way.

    1. Don't worry, Brother! You can always watch this strangely old, apparently mixed ethnicity kid piss his pants in a pseudo-SUV!


    2. Your advice is always at the forefront, with me.

    People who use annoying jargon such as "pivot, circle back, keep you in the loop, wheelhouse, sharpen your pencil" in everyday conversation. Also people who send friends memes or "but first coffee" type basic bs. Circle the loop around your neck.

    I end up with the same thing, but from someone like my boss's boss's boss and it's super super reasonable. Something like responding to an email from November with the last batch of info they requested and now they need all the follow up questions answered, all now. Everything.

    The last one of those I got was December 18th at 15:30 and I needed to give some AnusTart a pile of info from multiple other stakeholders "so he could effectively progress the application over the Xmas break". "Your immediate action on this is appreciated".
    LoL

    I'd like to pivot back to this, so we can sharpen your pencil, but first, some coffee.

    Ah, so you are the kind of guy who sends people non-important shit late at the end of a work week just to get it off your plate!

    Nah, it's just courtesy man. If it is not urgent, I would just wait until Monday, especially if it's already past 5 pm.

    Not really, but nature of the job makes a strict 9-5 a laughable concept. Let alone considering 2:30 on a Friday to be late lol.

    Personally if something needs to be done I’d rather know about it at 5:01 on Friday and plan my life accordingly than to drop it on me at 8AM Monday just because.

    That is why I said "plan to send" ?

    Get an IM at 2 pm saying I'll get something later today, and I know for a fact it will take at least a few hours to do unless the guy rushes the shit out of it just so he can shoot it out before the weekend as if it means anything.
    I know I will likely get it at 5:30 or sometime after 6. Guy has a history of doing shit like this

    Again, non-urgent stuff.

    I think we are on a similar page, I just don’t tend to sweat it.

    Omfg.

    Government incompetence at it's absolute highest level.

    Just got a lovely letter from MEP, wanting to do a child status review.

    I mean, it's been 4 years since the child in question has been deemed not a child of the marriage - by consent. 2+ years since the ex admitted in court her initial MEP application was fraudulent.

    Over 2 years they enforced "arrears" for a child deemed not of the marriage (they couldn't comprehend that a child being removed from a Queens Bench order preamble - meant she was deemed by consent not to be of the marriage). But let's review this again?

    But I can't get the recalculation program to recalculate the actual current child support order that hasn't been set aside...

    I swear I'm going to go postal soon.

    Feel you man. Worst government service ever. Going on 4 months and their site still cannot give you an up to date balance of what has been paid. You have to email them and ask for a statement which once you receive it is missing information that is typically shown on the website when it used to work. How productive is sending individual statements to the members via email versus getting your website back up in running...within 4 months.
