and tuck your bottom in!

have you noticed how rude people have become as technological use increases?
as though technology has increasingly distanced the world from humans, and everyone has forgotten what manners are.
this makes me frownyface.

i remember learning manners was part of the biggest things in my life; making sure every time i went to another teachers class, i would politely knock, ask to be excused as though i had interrupted a very important meeting with class peers and say sorry for any inconvenient action(s) i took.

and i believe i still practise this well.
And now, every day i would go to work and try to be my best; offering kind and friendly service that i never get when i go to a restaurant or shop, and i am greeted with repulsive humans!
no wonder everyone else has crap customer service-we can't stand to serve 99% of you!

i'd like to go back to my technology please.


customers think it's ok to be on the phone while they walk in, not bothering to listen to what i have to say, when clearly, they're MY cinema, so MY rules apply.
and i use 'my' loosely, but you get the gist of what i'm saying ahhaha
customers think that shoe policies don't apply anymore...
customers think that they can have sex on cinema complex's chairs?!
customers don't care about what bringing hot foods into the cinema means..
..it's not just for our sake when it comes to the difficulty of cleaning, it's for everyone else's who can't stand the smell of your gross chicken wings!
and worst of all, customers treat workers like as if they aren't human beings.
I HAVE FEELINGS.
IT HURTS WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME LIKE I'M A STUPID WHORE.
and it's standard procedure that i help lower your prices for you by offering upgrades

snooze.

how long is too long for a conversation on the same subject?

i was watching (2009) movie Adam, about a man with Asperger syndrome.
And with whatever social exposure he has with people, many of his conversations (likely to include his favourite subject on space- including equipments) went on and on and on and on.
but only on that one thing; in that case, it was on telescopes.
of course, he was passionate about space and so with such vast knowledge on the subject, he could obviously go on for quite some time.

but really, as a social norm, when is the time to stop?

do we stop after 4 succinct points?
the introducing point, the example point, the "just to let you know that i'm serious about this" point, and the "in case you just came into the conversation" point?

do we carry on with the conversation until we can find a slightly off topic moment which leads to another subject?

or do we stop when we see the first sign of boredom?

maybe even all three +more?
my! how complex the social world has become.

is that why we blog?
we couldn't complete our fantasy long lasting conversation with friends because one person turned your 'interesting facts in alphabetical order' idea away, so we write to ourselves until we can think no longer?

i know i most certainly do.

that and the fact that i'm so paranoid that whatever i say won't be intelligent enough for my friends, (i tend to like to research a LOT about something before i make accusations-even then, it ends up sounding like an oral presentation)

listening to my own conversation,

game on!

i have a game which i constantly play when i'm alone.

the social game.

i'm sure you play it too..
you know the one, when you realise your friends aren't with you to make you look cool any more.
so you survey the area...
until you find someone else who is also by themselves.

and then it begins.


the aim of the game is to be the most successful on the first encounter given in point systems.
who makes contact with another human being first-and likes it.
most of the time we revert to the phone in order to look like someone's given us a message, but really, it's more awesome if you didn't touch your phone, and it goes off.
extra points if your ringtone is just as awesome as your non-strategically planned effort of making contact with life.

if both players have a failed the first encounter opportunity, the point system restarts.
the ultimate win is if there is physically someone there in front of you talking.
and none of that.."uhh, you're sitting in my spot. i always sit there." (from random person)

it's super win if you enjoy the presence of that somebody. whether you make a hearty laugh from a comment, or they enjoy your company so much, they sit with you.

it's overkill however, if you stare at your opponent the whole time.

and it's just rubbing it in your opponents face if that person walks away from you, making your opponent think she still has a chance, but to find that that person has just gone off into the university's refectory (food court) in order to walk out with lunch, and not just lunch for themselves, but oh! one for you too~
oh how heartily you laugh as you eat that delicious beef kebab smothered with hot chilli sauce and garlic just the way your opponent likes it
and oh! your friend was kind enough to think of buying you fruit salad too, with delicious, juicy watermelon.
and you go over to thank your friend, slowly you lean in and YOU GET A FRIGGIN KISS TOO?! MOTHER OF A FIEND! HOW YOU SMITE ME WITH YOUR CRUELTY!
YOU MAY WIN THIS ROUND, BUT I WILL WIN ONE DAY.
AND TIL THAT DAY COMES, I'LL STALK YOU AND BE PREPARED WITH MY ARMY OF FRIENDS TO LIFT ME TO THE HEAVENS IN FRONT OF YOUR MEASLY EYES
THEN YOU SHALL SEE!
THEN YOU WILL FEEL THE PAIN THAT I FELT THAT ONE UNGODLY DAY!!
MUAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!!

the last explorer to live.

i made so many last minute realisations today.


first last minute decision was to wake up early in order to shower, have breakfast and have a relaxed wake-up-prepare-for-uni morning OR just...close...your eyes...just...a.litttle...longer.. and find the time to slam the door shut while running for the bus.
instinctlively, the latter option sounded so much better than it reads.
note to self: it doesn't.


second last minute decision was choosing to be on time to a bus by walking, or hitching a no-walk ride to catch a bus that made me 30 minutes late for uni.
at first the lazy option sounded fantastic.
note to self: it isn't.


third last minute decisionwas to check on the reason why noone was replying back to my messages today. fustrated, i called boyfriend ready to ask him where in the frigginnignags whereyou?! only to be answered with "sorry, you do not have sufficient credit to make this call"
i never really thought of hating my phone/service provider for somethign i didn't know they didn't do..but..
note to boyfriend: i'm sorry.

fourth last minute decision was to stay away from the tavern, you dont' need a drink...your'e 80% water!
at first, this sounded like a reasonable decision.
note to self: NEEDWATERNEEDWATERNEEDSOMEFORMOFLIQUIDINMOUTHWATERWATERNEEDTHEWATER



so, i've decided, that if i was to be on Survivor, i'd be the last one on the island...hungry, thirsty, and bored, just watching, as other crew members sailed off into the distance and thinking to myself...

i wonder if there's food on the island?
but really, the point of this post was just to say that i only just recently figured out that my comment box was disengaged. after thoroughly smacking the screen to push any button i could, i realised that there already was a link to make comments. so i've made a little diagram for those who have been equally fustrated at me


yeah. it's ontop of the title. what to me, seemed like an awesome decoration turns out to mean ZERO. zero comments that is. cos i'm so used to it. hahahah please forgive me.
