I remember when I had a 32" waist. I was 8.

RE: Ranting corner
One of my managers keeps marking me down for taking a longer break than I actually take. I don't even take a normal 15 minute break, more like 11 or 12. I set myself a timer, so there's no way I accidentally go over my time.

The only reason I'm ever late back to my post is if I get stopped by customers on the way to/from the breakroom, hence I shorten my breaks so it's usually not a problem.

Today, she marked me for taking a 30 minute break. This isn't the 1st time.

I wonder if I should go to HR over this.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

When I was 8, we couldn't afford a tape measure..

Absolutely do. She's giving you a shitty record for no reason. That shit can follow you to other jobs. Don't let her steamroll you.

Talk with her first. If that doesn't resolve the issue to your satisfaction, talk with HR. Hopefully your company (like many these days) has rules against retaliation.

I don't disagree, they're inherently abusive because they can't give consent (and often on top of the inherent coercion, and the absolute lack of morality to engage in those acts with a child to begin with, can be quite violent). That guy is one of a handful I've ever met who set off my "pedo-dar" as I call it. So far I'm 3/4, and I feel like that's because the 4th hasn't been busted yet. Sadly, to quote a friend who works with social services back home, "We're from a small town, why do we have so many pedophiles around here?"

This Catholic had a drink for the first time in months last week, but otherwise...a lot yeah. Fun aside, my priest back home was in the hospital once and was asked if he drank, "Every day." The flabbergasted nurse asked how much, "Oh a few ounces tops. I have to finish off the Communion wine."

Maybe make sure she knows you're only doing 15 first? Otherwise, might be a good idea to. (Says the guy who isn't following his own advice with a hostile coworker.)

For a criminal law paper, I had to form a defense for a child rapist. Told my professor I have never felt so filthy in my life. To top it off, I was the only student who did that part, and she told my classmates only one student did it. They figured it out.

RE: Ranting corner
So...sorry to be ranty today, but, was trying to relax some. Went on Facebook, saw friends back in my hometown were all sharing the same video. "Huh, wonder what's going on?" I murmur to myself as I notice the "how dare he" type comments. It turns out it was a "Festival of Life" thing that different fucking Evangelical churches around my home town sponsor each year on a rotating basis, held in the rented out town amphitheater. To describe the event, I'll just use the words of a friend, "Basically they lure people in with promises of prizes and free bill pays and then they try to brainwash them with this kind of garbage, as well as claiming to physically heal people. Is a scam."

So what was in this video? A pastor from another nearby town telling a woman that he was driving out her demons of being a lesbian because that's why she and her daughter both were having a rough time in life right now. It was filmed by the woman's wife. Go fuck yourself dude, just go fuck yourself.

I'm sorry Sad That...yeah, not a good assignment, surely. Would've felt dirty as well.

RE: Ranting corner
You seriously need the Listening 2.0 upgrade. Shouting me down with your preconceived notion of what I'm going to say does not advance any conversation, and I will go turtle at that point.

If you're asking me to explain where I'm coming from, do me the courtesy of listening to my explanation. If you cannot be bothered, quit with the optics of "I'm trying to understand", because you can't understand a goddamned thing when your mouth is in fourth gear and your ears are idling.

Breaks being controlled by your boss by every single minute?
What business are you in? Pyramids?
Does your manager not have some real work to do, like.....managing your department?
