  1. My god, you're back! Great to see you. :]

      Haha thanks, I do mapping in my free time still I just don't always post a bunch :)

  2. Mine wasn't. I originally wanted the name IconOfSin...but this fucker who hasn't made a post in twelve years already had it.

    Has this happened to anyone else? If so, post their profile URL and what SHOULD have been YOUR username here for shits and giggles.

    This blog can really be used to address a potentially bigger issue. So many profiles on here that have been inactive for over a decade. Doesn't that cause problems? Probably not...but dammit, so many of the cool names have already been taken!

      Nope in fact no one has ever had my username ever. I always have the 2 at the end just in case that someone has my name, I used to use Toranasouras for everything before I switched to TheNerdTurtle2

  3. I don't mean to be but sometimes I'm a bit paranoid about it. If so what is it that I do that is annoying? I don't know. I'm taking a break from doom for the night because I'm kinda on tilt with my current play through.

      I don't know, I'm just browsing the forums and when I see you have the loser title I laugh and say: What'd he do this time? So I go on your post history and see what happened, I honestly don't know why it's funny when it happens to you.

  4. So, i was bored (as usual) and decided to make some sort of graph of my posts per day, starting with Feb 17 when i registered and up to today (this post is not included). It includes all post-helled posts and blogs posts. It may not be accurate, because it was hard to count all my 500+ posts, especially in PH and blogs, where they're not indexed.

    Also, red crosses indicate times when i was moderated after i posted something that mods didn't like..

    Well, what can i see from here is that before March 20 i was quite shy to post too much, which is quite understandable. The main problem, however, is that recently the amount of posts i make has decreased somewhat and i don't like that! I think from now on i'll be making more useless posts to increase my posting frequency!! I must show you that i'm an extremely active forum member!! ...

      If I made one of these it would be crazy. I registered in may of last year so from May to July of last year I posted like crazy, probably about 150-200. And then I went completely silent from July 9 2015 - May 21 2016. I only posted once between then and that was to say my prayers go out to Ty Halderman when I learned of his death. And since May 21st I probably shitposted a bunch to reach 250 posts so I could have this beautiful avatar :) Now I have a stable amount of posts

  7. I know it's pussyish or whatever but I have a mild fear of bugs and somewhat bigger fear of spiders. I thought Id been doing better with it but today when I got home there was this huge spider in the middle of the floor and I started to not be able to control myself and started to breath unstable and ughhh.. why can't I just kill it, my dad did and then he noticed a ton of ants crawling on the ground, looks like we got infested and it's creeping me out a lot. He sprayed them and they died pretty quick but now I am jumpy. Anything that itches make me freak and any noise is worse. Do you guys have any advice?

  9. I write music as a hobby mostly like acoustic songs and what not and my friend told me like 6 months ago that I couldn't write a metal song.... So during this time some asshole customer (war vet in a wheelchair that asks for donations every day but immediately goes and buys alcohol with the money he gets) had yelled at me for the way I was pushing carts calling me lazy and telling me that I was a bad employee because I only had one cart in my hand. There weren't any more carts on the lot so I was about to tell him that when he screamed: "Shut the fuck up I'm talking to you!" Sooooo I decided to prove my friend wrong and write a death metal song about that guy and pushing carts in general.

    It's bad probably, and I had completely forgot about it until I saw it sitting in my music today. I don't plan on being an artist especially not a metal artist so I don't care how bad it is I just think it's funny and it relates to my other thread about my boss. I recorded everything myself except drums which I used a program to make.

      Sadly I have a whole album of this kind of music because I kind of got bored and decided it would be fun to do so, it was called Brutal Milkshakes. This is actually one of the later songs on the album, I used inhale screams on the other ones and they sound even worse, but some songs are decent. And then I have my acoustic songs, my peers say my singing is bad so I want vocal lessons or something

      Metallica was a big influence back 3 years ago, I like Anthrax and Megadeth more. Although Master of Puppets is by far the most fun to play on guitar

  18. I'm not going to use his name because I don't want to get shit for it but I work at a Giant Eagle (grocery store based in Pennsylvania and Ohio) and I have a boss (the store manager) named "Kevin James". Now I don't mind work, my job title is utility clerk and my job is to bag groceries, push carts and be positive and happy to customers. I work hard every single day and strive to be the best, now my direct boss: "Shannon" likes me and says I get the most customer compliments every day. She appreciates my hard work and positive attitude especially because I am reliable and consistent. Kevin James on the other hand doesn't just hate me, but everyone. However it's not the hate that gets me, I'll take being hated any day. He's fucking retarded and MEAN.

    Let me explain what happened one day that got to me a little bit. So every morning we have carts in the lobby and reserve carts outside. So naturally as customers come in the carts in the lobby slowly disappear, so as a cart pusher you can only bring so many carts back into the lobby because most of them are in the store shopping. So Kevin James sees that the lobby is almost empty and yells at us because were not doing our job fast enough. So I say: "There are no carts out there can I grab some off the reserves?" And he says: "Theres carts out there, I bet if I paid you more you'd find them. Go outside and get the carts!" BUT THERE ARE NO CARTS OUT THERE! No matter how you argue him you're not allowed to grab off the reserves, when he is gone we just do it anyway but WTF? Anyway this is just a normal everyday thing, something way worse has happened this past Monday.

    Just so you know my Dad has worked at Giant Eagle for 37 years and is the most respected employee because he does his work and makes everyone happy. He comes in on time every day and even works during his breaks if he has to to get stuff done. He is the best employee anyone could ever be (this isn't biased if you guys could come to the store and ask anyone who their hardest worker is they'd say my dad). And he'd never complained about work until Kevin James was hired... ANYWAY...

    So Shannon and Kevin were standing in the lobby watching me push carts and as I walked in I thanked Shannon for giving me 34 hours next week (I usually get 12) and said I can't wait to work, especially because I got opening shift. (The opening shift is 7am-3pm) And of course Kevin said: "Yeah, just don't mess it up like you normally do." This made me mad but I was still determined.

    7am Monday Morning:
    I walked in and did the trash, I swept the floors and cleared the lot. Then Kevin comes in and asks me to move the flowers to the front of the store and sweep the patio, so I respectfully smile and do so. Then I hear on my walkie: "Hey Madison can you tell the young bagger in the front to come back here and get these carts from the back?" You heard right btw, he didn't know my name even though he yells at me everyday for the last year I've worked there. But never mind the worst is to come.

    I walk to the back to see Kevin with a line of carts so I take start to push them away when he asks me: "Did you clear the lot? Did you do the trash? Did you sweep inside and outside? Did you move the flowers?" So I said: "Yes I did them all :)" and he replied: "do you know what your reward is? You get to do the trash all around the inside of the building."

    I replied with "Okay sounds good, I don't mind." I wish I didn't say that though

    Kevin said: "Good man, unlike your dad. Do you know he doesn't like to work? You ever notice that?"

    I walked away, speechless.

    HE INSULTED MY DAD WHO GAVE HIS LIFE TO THIS COMPANY IN FRONT OF MY FUCKING FACE. YELL AT ME ALL YOU WANT YOU STUPID FUCK BUT DON'T EVER TELL ME MY DAD ISN'T A GOOD MAN AND THAT HE DOESN'T DO YOUR WORK. YOU'RE AN ARROGANT PIECE OF SHIT WHO'S BEEN DIVORCED THREE TIMES.

    I'm tired of working for him do you know how hard it is to smile every day when you know he's just gonna yell at you? I have a rash from sweat in a place I don't want to talk about for long hours pushing carts in the hot sun. And I have smiled and said hi to every customer for a whole year to get less than 9 an hour minus union dues. I did the math and I make about 7 an hour. What should I do because I can't take this anymore, it almost make me strangle him, how do I get him fired?

      "REEEEEEEEEE!!!"


      This fucking killed me because my friend screams it whenever anyone around me is being stupid and I don't know why but I always laugh. Anyway the problem with my boss is that he is the store manager so all departments deal with him, your direct boss was a fucking bitch while mines pretty nice (but mine kisses the store managers ass).

      I feel you on the taking shifts thing, all the baggers besides me and two others are lazy all the time. I never call off or don't do my work but sometimes we have up to 3 baggers call off in one day and no one covers for them so I have to go do 3x the work. But I'm pretty sure you know how it feels

      On the note of my boss yesterday went well. I think he got scared after my dad yelled at him because he realized that he could get in trouble for it. So he didn't say shit about what happened and he didn't talk down to me. In fact he asked me to mop up and mess and when I brought the mop over he said: "Thanks [insert my name here]" HE LEARNED MY NAME!! I was talking to one of my coworkers at the front desk and apparently earlier that day he asked her what my name was. He doesn't even know most of the higher ups names because he is a dick that hates everyone. There is this person named Kai, she is a woman and he calls her Kyle everyday.

      TheNerdTurtle2, I feel your pain. The only thing that scares me are frogs and toads. Other than that, I fear nothing.


      What do you think causes it? Because like I said I know nothing is going to happen, especially because there aren't too many poisonous spiders in Ohio but it's still scary. Like at least your fear isn't as common, but that would still suck a lot, does seeing them make you freak or is it touching them?



      Tell me does this scare you?

      I do what I do, because there is no choice.

      You possibly have arachnophobia, maybe thats why you get frozen upon seeing one and freaking out when one touches you/makes a noise/moves.


      And what's funny is that it's only spiders and bugs, I'm not really scared of anything else at all. I used to be paranoid of ghosts haha but that doesn't happen anymore and I used to be afraid of heights but then I went on lots of roller coasters and I don't have that fear anymore and I've been getting better with spiders being able to kill them, but yesterday... that spider was fucking huge, biggest I've ever seen, I got really scared

Then I hear on my walkie: "Hey Madison can you tell the young bagger in the front to come back here and get these carts from the back?" You heard right btw, he didn't know my name even though he yells at me everyday for the last year I've worked there. But never mind the worst is to come.

    I walk to the back to see Kevin with a line of carts so I take start to push them away when he asks me: "Did you clear the lot? Did you do the trash? Did you sweep inside and outside? Did you move the flowers?" So I said: "Yes I did them all :)" and he replied: "do you know what your reward is? You get to do the trash all around the inside of the building."

    I replied with "Okay sounds good, I don't mind." I wish I didn't say that though

    Kevin said: "Good man, unlike your dad. Do you know he doesn't like to work? You ever notice that?"

    I walked away, speechless.

    HE INSULTED MY DAD WHO GAVE HIS LIFE TO THIS COMPANY IN FRONT OF MY FUCKING FACE. YELL AT ME ALL YOU WANT YOU STUPID FUCK BUT DON'T EVER TELL ME MY DAD ISN'T A GOOD MAN AND THAT HE DOESN'T DO YOUR WORK. YOU'RE AN ARROGANT PIECE OF SHIT WHO'S BEEN DIVORCED THREE TIMES.

    I'm tired of working for him do you know how hard it is to smile every day when you know he's just gonna yell at you? I have a rash from sweat in a place I don't want to talk about for long hours pushing carts in the hot sun. And I have smiled and said hi to every customer for a whole year to get less than 9 an hour minus union dues. I did the math and I make about 7 an hour. What should I do because I can't take this anymore, it almost make me strangle him, how do I get him fired?

      Just speaking from experience, it's unfortunately not uncommon at all for really shitty people to land management positions. Him telling you your dad doesn't like to work is a really fucked up thing to say, and is a bit extraordinary though. I would definitely report every insignificant thing he does that makes you uncomfortable. No matter how menial it is, the sheer volume of offenses should get him in a lot of trouble. People like him do not belong in positions of authority.

      If you have any interest in replacing him as a boss, make sure you let the people in charge know that you're interested. Don't hint at it or beat around the bush, tell them very clearly and often that you want that job. A lot of people I've worked with (including myself) believe that working hard and keeping your mouth shut will lead to higher pay and general success but it never works. They're always looking for perseverance, not complacency. You'll find that there's a bit of a learning curve but ultimately moving up in the company won't feel any more difficult than what you're doing now.


      Thanks for the advice but I'm only 18 and this is a big chain store, plus I'm going to college for marketing this year, maybe minoring in finance as well. I'm going to start reporting things and I'm telling all my co-workers to do the same. A few months ago one of my coworkers sat down to check his ankle because he rolled it and the boss chewed him out saying that if he doesn't keep pushing carts he's going to make him leave. Like wtf? He was checking his ankle.

      BTW he wasn't here today, so I'm waiting for tomorrow to see how he acts. My dad works tomorrow too but later in the day

      PS I live in Ohio but I'm gonna go the HR route instead of the recording route

  24. I'm not going to use his name because I don't want to get shit for it but I work at a Giant Eagle (grocery store based in Pennsylvania and Ohio) and I have a boss (the store manager) named "Kevin James". Now I don't mind work, my job title is utility clerk and my job is to bag groceries, push carts and be positive and happy to customers. I work hard every single day and strive to be the best, now my direct boss: "Shannon" likes me and says I get the most customer compliments every day. She appreciates my hard work and positive attitude especially because I am reliable and consistent. Kevin James on the other hand doesn't just hate me, but everyone. However it's not the hate that gets me, I'll take being hated any day. He's fucking retarded and MEAN.

    Let me explain what happened one day that got to me a little bit. So every morning we have carts in the lobby and reserve carts outside. So naturally as customers come in the carts in the lobby slowly disappear, so as a cart pusher you can only bring so many carts back into the lobby because most of them are in the store shopping. So Kevin James sees that the lobby is almost empty and yells at us because were not doing our job fast enough. So I say: "There are no carts out there can I grab some off the reserves?" And he says: "Theres carts out there, I bet if I paid you more you'd find them. Go outside and get the carts!" BUT THERE ARE NO CARTS OUT THERE! No matter how you argue him you're not allowed to grab off the reserves, when he is gone we just do it anyway but WTF? Anyway this is just a normal everyday thing, something way worse has happened this past Monday.

    Just so you know my Dad has worked at Giant Eagle for 37 years and is the most respected employee because he does his work and makes everyone happy. He comes in on time every day and even works during his breaks if he has to to get stuff done. He is the best employee anyone could ever be (this isn't biased if you guys could come to the store and ask anyone who their hardest worker is they'd say my dad). And he'd never complained about work until Kevin James was hired... ANYWAY...

    So Shannon and Kevin were standing in the lobby watching me push carts and as I walked in I thanked Shannon for giving me 34 hours next week (I usually get 12) and said I can't wait to work, especially because I got opening shift. (The opening shift is 7am-3pm) And of course Kevin said: "Yeah, just don't mess it up like you normally do." This made me mad but I was still determined.

    7am Monday Morning:
    I walked in and did the trash, I swept the floors and cleared the lot. Then Kevin comes in and asks me to move the flowers to the front of the store and sweep the patio, so I respectfully smile and do so. Then I hear on my walkie: "Hey Madison can you tell the young bagger in the front to come back here and get these carts from the back?"

Did you move the flowers?" So I said: "Yes I did them all :)" and he replied: "do you know what your reward is? You get to do the trash all around the inside of the building."

    I replied with "Okay sounds good, I don't mind." I wish I didn't say that though

    Kevin said: "Good man, unlike your dad. Do you know he doesn't like to work? You ever notice that?"

    I walked away, speechless.

    HE INSULTED MY DAD WHO GAVE HIS LIFE TO THIS COMPANY IN FRONT OF MY FUCKING FACE. YELL AT ME ALL YOU WANT YOU STUPID FUCK BUT DON'T EVER TELL ME MY DAD ISN'T A GOOD MAN AND THAT HE DOESN'T DO YOUR WORK. YOU'RE AN ARROGANT PIECE OF SHIT WHO'S BEEN DIVORCED THREE TIMES.

      Alright thanks guys a lot, I really hate this guy and I want to get this out in the open. The only reason I don't quit is because without him the job wouldn't be that bad at all. He scares everyone to the bone and is just a dick in general. He literally pronounced my coworkers name wrong every single day and every single day my co worker corrected him. But he just kept saying it until my coworker filed a complaint. The boss stopped for about a week and then started to do it again, like what the fuck are you five?

      Does your phone have a memo recording on it to get only audio? Would use much less space and you could record for longer periods at a time.

      Surely you could find another job? You seem pretty intelligent.


      Haha thanks for saying I seem intelligent, I am going to college this year and I need every cent I can get so quitting is only an option if I can find a job really quick. Also we get a 50 cent raise every 6 months so hopefully I'll be making more after a while

      I'm 18 and this is my first job
