been watching a couple of guys who work at 3DO playing a bunch of their old games and it's just a really cool insight into how the whole video game industry was back then

it's so fucking insane that back in the day they would make you pay £12 to sit in a room while a movie plays and they wouldn't allow you to bring your own food in

acab 

got pulled up at work because the police filed a complaint since i don't serve cops/i give them as little service as possible when i have to serve them and got told not to work on the front counter if i'm going to continue

fuck that, how dare i stand for my beliefs about cops because the cops are supposed to be "our friends"

gender politics at work, transphobia 

he then went on about how all these kids were being forced to be trans by their parents at a really young age and how a ton of them regret it and how they somehow got on hormones really early and fully transitioned by the age of 14

this dude has obviously never actually met a trans person in his life

gender politics at work, transphobia adj 

i love the part at work where my kiwi assistant manager keeps bringing up how "the trans" are doing something stupid again because some article on facebook said they did

he was telling me about how they're trying to normalize the use of "parent" instead of "mum" and "dad" in victorian schools and how stupid it was because "what if a kid gets lost and they tell someone they can't find their parent? which one do they mean?" like dude shut the fuck up

going positively feral in the parking lot at your local taco bell. not mine, yours. they tried to call the cops but id already chewed clean through the phone lines

work ranting 

we make an average of $30k a day and we do it with partially functional fuel pumps and tills that run windows xp that still require you to manually process card transactions

it would be nice if some of that money went back into actually maintaining the place instead of going towards dumb shit in the hotels and the pockets of executives

this capitalism shit fucking sucks

work ranting 

still pissed that the $40k that was going to be used to fix up the servo i work at and give us a block of toilets actually went to Bruce Munro so he could have $100k to make some "indigenous inspired" light fixtures

i might be marginally less mad if the guy was actually indigenous and not just some british guy appropriating aboriginal culture and art
