    Knowing that I was acting like a jerk then getting called on it really grinds my gears.

    When people interupt your own game or show, just for a second and makes you really erase everything, the game and recording show, as well as when you are trying to write down something so unique, that you end up using a soda bottle on it, since you can remember why they are angry at you. She means nothing to me, and yet she is my mother.

    Why is it that recruiters apply the logic that "cool" == developers will work for peanuts?

    Because they make their money on the "sell" not on the "buy".

    obsessive compulsives...
    I work with one, attention span of a squirrel...I'm working up about 15 feet, in a tight little area.
    I hand him tools I am not using, ask for a file
    I waited FIVE minutes while he wiped the tools and put them away. rolled up the wrench pouch (still needed the wrench later). Rearranged MY toolbox..and then I calmly asked for my file
    'Oh yea, I forgot'.. I give him another coupe minutes...and wheres the SFT19 bearing?!?!??! Ohhh yeaaa..

    I swear OCD + Xanax is NOT a good combo

    Next time, grab me some fries, would you? I just found out that I can eat them again--haven't since 1988--because they're vegan now! :D They used to be seasoned with beef fat. :eek:
