RE: Ranting corner
Pointless story time!

So here I am, walking around the local shopping centre to grab me some foods when I walk past a little out-let set up by Minda, a mental disability assistance group. As I walk past, minding my own business, one of the gentlemen greets me and makes a gesture I see out the corner of my eye, so I stop and look at him. He's staring at me, eyes locked on mine with a grin which is all but engineered to affect maximum friendliness.
Being me, I quickly scan him over and turn my ipod off, take out the earpieces and take a step toward him as he repeats his greeting and I nod slightly in return, averting my eyes, because that shit make me feel uncomfortable. I stand in front of the rep and scan from his face down to his outstretched hand and back again, averting my eyes every time I hit his own, he responds by nodded enthusiastically, looking at his hand and moving it slightly in a handshake motion. I slightly outstretch my own hand, which his grins and nods to and proceeds to shake my hand.
The Rep then attempts to engage me in conversation. In normal situations like this, I'm usually quite short in my responses and this guy has set off my internal 'let's get out of here and find a nice, quite place to calm down' alarm so I'm eager to get out of there.
The conversation goes thusly:
"Hi. What's you're name?"
"My name is Matthew."
"So, what are you up to?"
"Walking."
"Just got off school?"
"University."
At this point, he's manufactured grins burst into a full smile and his body language becomes more 'positive'.
"Oh? How old are you?"
"Nineteen."
"Ah. Thought you were in high school, you look 15. Well, we need you to be 21 to help with this (gesturing to the organisation stand covered in booklets). So I'll just let you be on your way."

If you thought I was 15, why the fuck did you try to illicit my interaction if you knew based on your age estimate that I couldn't do anything?! What was the purpose of the gambit?
What was the purpose to any of that!?

Of course, it may well have been that he just decided to use it as a quick and easy 'out' from the conversation, since I was visibly growing more uncomfortable (or at least I think I was, showing the increasing discomfort that is).

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: Ranting corner
Is it possible to choke your own back out?

I'm drinking a Dr. Pepper and some of it goes down wrong, and all of a sudden my body spends 15-20 seconds trying to cough, and inhale oxygen simultaneously, (failing at both) and every upper body muscle I had clenched hard! It friggin hurt!

Now, every time I stretch to reach a shelf, or worse try to bend over to pick something up, it feels like someone's stabbing me underneath my right shoulder blade! I ain't kiddin! This shit hurts, and sucks, and I'm gonna sue Dr. Pepper!

FUCK SODA!!! Angry

Either you've got it spewing all over the kitchen, or in your lungs where it doesn't belong Tongue

Seriously though, if you were really coughing up a big storm, I think it's note gone the realm of possibility that you kinked something in your back. Undecided

What to do about it, not too sure. Take it easy, try and get a massage Wink

Oh well, at least my space and vis tests, which I did yesterday are done and I apparently did ok otherwise, they would have advised me to not bother coming in for the rest of my life.
