wtf is with WORK?

April 16th, 2009

and now for something on the light side…

The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically.  This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).  If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever – DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!  This virus will wipe out your private life entirely.  If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises.
Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase one or both of the antidotes – Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER).  Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
You should immediately share this medical alert with your friends.  If you do not have any friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

WTF is up with contractors

April 14th, 2009

I want to know what on earth is up with contractors, in my experience with them I haven’t been able to find a single honest one of them out of the bunch.  The only honest people I find are the people who are not “General contractors” and are just specialized laborer’s, like plumbers, electricians, etc.  It seems to me that if you don’t get it in writing and threaten to hold them accountable by law you can’t get them to a) do the job in a reasonable time or b) do the job right.  Now I have this guy trying to charge me for a number of rediculous items.

1) Installing dimmer switches in rooms that need them (per building code) and then charging me to do so.  WTF you don’t do the job right now you want to charge me because you did it wrong? In what profession can people get away with doing a job wrong and charging the customer for it.

2) People on his crew threw away parts for a sky light that was clearly labeled DO NOT THROW AWAY because the sky light was unable to be installed immediatly since the room it was to go in wasn’t done yet.

3) We have to constantly ask for parts that we purchased at his request and went unused to be returned to us so we can get the money back for them.

That is just a small list of his crimes.  Now he has the gall to say he is going to take us to court because we decided to hold the remainder of the balance in escrow until the completion of the job.  Since he has proven that he will use every means necessary to avoid or deflect completion of the remaining work.  I can not believe the gall of this person.

wtf is with facebook adding fan pages to people you may know?

April 11th, 2009

The title says it all. Why is Facebook listing fan pages for totally random crap on the discover people you may know page? I don’t know, nor am I a fan of Chris Pan (Marketer), the Pittsburgh Pirates, The Ellen DeGeneres Show or the U.S. Embassy. WTF is with these suggestions? Based on these recommendations I can come up with a pretty humorous version of myself as seen by Facebook. Using the recommendations as your guide, tell me who I am in Facebook’s eyes – add your thoughts to the comments.

WTF is up with pushy webmasters?!

February 17th, 2009

I’m convinced that webmasters live entirely in virtual la-la land, sipping on Java and an RSS IV shoved in their eyesockets for nutrition. If they fail to get a dose of new material and are force-fed leftovers from yesterday’s blog, they get all pissy and go phishing for a taste of something new. So what am I complaining about? I’m complaining about people who have time to complain professionally ’cause me? I got too much shite to do. I’m going back to work.

WTF is with medical billing practices in general?

February 3rd, 2009

So if I get some tests done and I am uninsured, the the lab will bill twice as much as if I went through insurance. You can always see the negotiated rates cutting the bill in half. Would not it make sense to give discount to cash patients for whom you don’t have to do all this extra insurance billing?

wtf is with… iphone commercials?

January 29th, 2009

Is there an “app” to make my TV never show me another iPhone commercial ever again? Or maybe an “app” to rupture my eardrums so I never have to hear that smug announcer’s voice ever again. Either one will work.
