  1. 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?

      We don't have pockets on our uniform :/ I have them in my pants but I don't think that'll help

      Oh that's a good idea I don't have enough time to get one tonight though, do you know any good brands?

      You know what kills me Trace? After I told my dad, my dad yelled at him for it, and guess what? The fucker insisted he never said that. Just that he complemented me, and that was today. Tomorrow I work bright and early tomorrow morning and am a little nervous to see if he gets on my ass about tattling or works me extra hard for making him look bad. I'm trying to think of a good way to record what he says, any ideas?

  3. Aside from Doomworld, I am no longer a part of any online social network site. I am going to do this for seven days and see how I feel at the end. If I'm feeling good, then I just won't go back.

    You're all thinking:
    But TraceOfSpades, why are you doing this?


    Simple. I am sick of being addicted to it. It's a very consuming thing for me, and I am sick of it. It takes precious seconds away from my loved ones and from the real world around me. I also hate how invasive it is...the privacy is a joke.

    So I blew away my facebook and my snapchat. I'll post updates here.

    Also...this doesn't mean I won't be on doomworld when I'm bored. I don't see this on the same plane that I see facebook on. This is a more focused site that centers around a hobby.

    Day One

    Not horrible. I find myself instinctively beginning to type "facebook" into the browser though. The boredom will probably set in tonight.


    Day Two

    The boredom never set in. It might be because of the crazy storms we had last night while I was at work that kept me occupied. I'm still not feeling the itch. I have noticed, however, that my phone's battery is lasting much longer.


    Day Three

    Still not missing facebook. I find myself having more in depth in the flesh conversations with those I'm around now.

    Day Four

    Still nothing.


    Day Five

    I'm glad I did this.

      Hahahahaha, never mind if we count youtube I'm fuckedddd. I've spent long hours watching youtube, there is so much to watch and it doesn't help that there is a list of recommended videos after each video you watch. If youtube is a social media then I'm highly addicted and about to overdose everyday

    Downtown area is also really neat.

  6. 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.

  7. For many years I've worked at low paying service jobs where I was on my feet, expected to be alert and assist people for whatever little menial things they desire. My last job in particular I worked at for six years and it was by far the most demanding job I had ever worked. The work was mentally draining, and physically exhausting. I came home frustrated, and out of breath, it was difficult to be friendly to my friends and family, and I could barely keep up with my real-life obligations. I stuck around for the benefits but after years of studying accounting, I successfully landed a job in the accounting department of an insurance brokerage company not far from home. I get my own desk, a cubicle, and a computer with dual monitors. I've been working here for a few months and the work is a little mundane but it's easy and it's not any less mundane than the work I put into Doom. It gets pretty hectic towards the end of the month as we are closing the books for the month and reporting numbers to corporate, but the beginning of each month is a breeze. I may as well be on vacation! While I'm working I can listen to music and audiobooks from my ipod. People leave me alone, my boss is cool, and I get paid a lot more than what I was making previously.

    It's not very difficult to keep up with my work, which inevitably leads to plenty downtime; downtime I never saw in my previous jobs. After I met my wife and became a homeowner I thought I would never have time for mapping again. I even made an unofficial retirement from mapping blog a few years ago. Doom was a hobby and at the time I felt I was coming closer to putting that hobby to rest. My free time was quickly vanishing and it was troubling to get buried in real life obligations and try to have fun at the same time.

    Since the last month, I've been dilligently completing my work ahead of schedule, and using my down time to plan my days after work and for the weekends. I've been keeping an organized notebook filled with to-do lists regarding my Doom projects that I'm involved in, and I can do some pretty basic mapping on my computer at my desk using a USB drive I have with WAD Author on it and all the wads and editing utilities I could ever use. Since I'm relatively new to this company, I've been serious about completing my assignments ahead of schedule and being motivated to learn more and establishing good relationships with my peers and supervisors. I'm much happier than I thought I could ever be. I feel like I see colors more vividly, my imagination is blooming, and my ideas for maps are flowing. I come home from work full of energy and can use my weekends to work hard on my Doom projects with stuff I can't do at the office.

    I had always dreamed of how great it would be to actually make money while I'm making my Doom maps. My wish has come true.

      This actually made me smile a lot :) thanks for sharing I wish I was in that position but I'm on the verge of choking my boss out, I think I'm going to make my own post for it though. I'm happy for you, keep up the mapping!

  8. So I've been dating this girl for just under a year and she knows I love Doom or whatever so she decided she wanted to play it with me. I figured that the most user friendly Co-Op version would be Xbox 360's Doom 3 BFG Edition. So I loaded up the first Doom and in under an hour were done with the first episode, my girl doesn't really play video games so we played on ITYTD but it was actually a lot of fun. Don't get me wrong she was pretty bad, like she refused to use the shotgun because it shot too slowly and her favorite was the chaingun, she would literally only use that weapon and the rocketlauncher. And no matter how much I warned her about splash damage that didn't stop her from blowing herself up at practically point blank. But she was enthusiastic and screamed when monsters popped out of no where and made a sadistic smile when she dispatched a crowd of imps with the chaingun. Her biggest problem was not knowing what ammo was for what and where the ammo was. She would no joke walk past boxes of ammo and I would tell her and she would stare right at it and not see it. *sigh* for whatever reason she just couldn't tell what was ammo and what was health but it's okay it was fun. Also side note it's hard to play Doom with people who don't know the monsters names hahahahaha. Does anyone else have experience playing Doom with people that aren't good or know anything about the game?

      Eh, our long-distance is working well anyways though.


      That sucks :/ I would go crazy if my girl lived that far away, I drive to her house almost everyday, we just finished Doom today haha

      Indeed. After years of knowing nobody who wants to even try the game, here comes a new girlfriend who loves the idea of blasting monsters with a shotgun. She tries the game out... Within seconds, she gets nausea.

      I'd try all the usual steps to alleviate motion sickness, but she gets really impatient when things don't work out right away. Likely, Doom is ruined in her mind. Life is suffering.


      Dude that blowsss, my girlfriend has motion sickness too but she wears these bands around her wrists that press a pressure point to alleviate nausea. Also if you know me in real life you know I'm obsessed with rollercoasters and my goal is to go on every one in the U.S so our marriage agreement is that if we get married we have to go to at least one new amusement park every year hahaha. She loves rollercoasters but she can't ride the wooden ones at all or she gets really sick. Woodies are my favorite so naturally thats a problem.

  16. In school there were a lot of different subjects, often IMO pretty useless stuff like chemistry where I couldn't understand anything at all. But what about human interaction? How to properly hold a conversation, how to be attentive and respectful of other people, how not to be an egotistical douche, how to be a good friend/lover? I was never taught any of this aside from some extremely basic stuff like "treat others the way you want to be treated", which I guess helped a bit but not much. So how am I expected to gain all that knowledge? You could say that it should naturally come with experience. However, I'm 23 years old already and yet I still suck a lot at most of that stuff. So what did I miss? Maybe there was a special class on one of these days when I decided to fake illness, stay home and play some Diablo 2?

  17. Often people post here about making maps and then deleting them because they were unhappy with how they were going, or didn't know what to do with it, etc.

    This kind of surprises me actually. I tend to never delete any kind of work-in-progress or anything, even things that I think are bad or will never get finished. Disk space is cheap and it's not like having that stuff around matters to me, and sometimes I'll go back to something I started a while ago and either work on it some more, or get ideas from it.

    I've got song ideas that are at least 10 years old sitting around, I've got unfinished projects for software that I don't have anymore, etc.

    Is anyone else like this, with maps or otherwise? Or is the prevailing attitude "delete it if it sucks"?

And all the normies decide it's time to get their thug on and act even more idiotically than usual. I have allergies too so my face becomes a leaking balloon of mucus, a constant stream of mucus from my mouth, nose, and out of my eyes. I get stressed, I can't sleep, so I get more stressed, I am in a living hell of Chads and mucus. Please can someone build something that can be fired into space and permanently blocks out the sun.

      So you're saying that the mods gave you your title? That's dope

  20. And I'm not happy with one.

    Exam Marks (out of 100)

    English Language-75

    Bengali-57

    Further Pure Mathematics-38

    Mathematics B-58

    Physics-83

    Chemistry-70

    ICT-81

    *sigh*
    If I drop Pure Maths, would it have any drastic effects for me in the future?
    What options are avilable for me if I do continue Pure Maths AND get good grades in the process?
    (By options, I mean job oppurtunities)
    What options are there if I DONT continue Pure Maths?

    I was thinking maybe something in programming would be... nice, but it seems that requires a good knowledge of Pure Maths.

    What do I do? Drop it or keep it?

      I just finished my senior year of high school and all year I literally did nothing. No homework or studying because I already got accepted into college and already got a scholarship. So why should I try? Needless to say I failed both the exams I had to take. (They only make you take exams in classes you got under a B average in your senior year)

  21. Often people post here about making maps and then deleting them because they were unhappy with how they were going, or didn't know what to do with it, etc.

    This kind of surprises me actually. I tend to never delete any kind of work-in-progress or anything, even things that I think are bad or will never get finished. Disk space is cheap and it's not like having that stuff around matters to me, and sometimes I'll go back to something I started a while ago and either work on it some more, or get ideas from it.

    I've got song ideas that are at least 10 years old sitting around, I've got unfinished projects for software that I don't have anymore, etc.

    Is anyone else like this, with maps or otherwise? Or is the prevailing attitude "delete it if it sucks"?

      I have folders full of incomplete maps because of this. I'm terrible when it comes to finishing maps. :\


      It's kinda been pushing me to do speedmaps instead because if you can't hold your attention for an hour then you need to see someone about that hahaha

  23. 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 think everyone goes through a time on here when they think they are annoying, especially when I started out just over a year ago and joe-ilya and scifista both left FDAs on my map and I asked: "What's an FDA?". The sad part is that I have been making doom levels for several years at this point but I'd never used source ports like Pr-Boom.

      EDIT: At least I hope I'm not annoying :P and I hope my avatar is cool I made it in photoshop

  24. Yeah, I was browsing the forums, and I saw in the bulletin that people were hacking into accounts. They tried to raid mine's today, but failed. I know this because even though I typed my username and password correctly, a captcha appeared.

    Anyways, I hope everything turns out alright for the ZDoomers over there.
    One of my friends were already hacked and banned.

      We think that it might be Zandronum players trying to make their source port superior, even though ZDoom's engine is way more advanced than their's right now.


      After hearing this I kinda think this whole post is fake.. Especially when you look at post hell and see that Sgt Ender has like fucking 7 threads on the first page

  25. Just curious. I'm not the happiest person in the world, sometimes I get kinda scary thoughts but so far I prefer trying to become happier by myself, slowly learning to appreciate life more, stuff like that. If you feel comfortable talking about this, please tell about your experiences with psychologists\antidepressants (did they help at all?) or why you're also avoiding them even though it is possible that you might need them.

      I've gone to a therapist before and it's fine or whatever and it helped but I honestly don't think I have depression anymore. It's basically I have two modes: I'm really happy and excitable and everything is awesome. I have a girlfriend and a job and Doom and games and life is great and I love everything (except people I am not a people person at all I want basically everyone to die haha) or I feel nothing. Like nothing makes me happy or smile. I'm not sad, I just feel no energy. But I'm not tired it's really weird, and then sometimes when I'm in this state I just get really angry and can't stop it. And then I scream to myself for not knowing why I'm mad which in turn gets me madder and it kinda escalates until I find something to calm my nerves (usually Doom with headphones in the dark but sometimes even that doesn't work). I wish I knew what it was that makes me feel like that but maybe I'm bipolar? Idk, I just live with it
