omg burocracy + loopy stepmother
my father died about a year ago in Bosnia, stepmother and my brother and I inherited (nothing). Lots of hoopla because laws and distance and language but most is settled we signed away our rights while she is alive, good.
no not good, there is a car, and stepmother now wants to sell it, so my brother and I both need to sign a release form as we co-own it with her, but separately as brother and I live around 200 km apart and god knows when we would be able to go to a notary together on a working day because yes it needs to be notarised signatures AND then get a seal from the law court and then sent to Bosnia so brother and I both need a notary appt and pay the fee plus the fee of the court so prob around 80 Euros in all plus our time
to sell a
Volkswagen Golf 2
from
1987
in downtown Bosnia
:facepalm:

It's times like these that we need to remind ourselves of the wise words of one Mr W Shakespeare - Kill all the lawyers first.

That seems quite an extreme reaction to ban someone for life for a single post.
Especially given the mountains of shit that goes unchallenged.

Yes. That’s a lot of screenshots of that Katie Hopkins trash woman going around today. I have her blocked, so am usually spared, but she regularly shares screenshots of where people have complained about her racism and transphobia and Twitter have said they don’t see the need to remove her tweet or act in any way.

She may have tweets that ARE deleted, but she sure as heck doesn’t have a lifetime ban.

Sorry this has happened, Nik. xx

And Tweets that are basically hate speech are far worse IMO than just expressing an opinion on how (un)likeable some politicians are

Thanks. To be fair I have been temp-banned before for exactly the same thing, so it's kind of my fault for not learning just how sensitive Twitter are about the c-word.

(Don't tell them, but I've still got my old old old account, and am rebranding it and refollowing people now... we'll see how long I get away with that.)

You know that they don’t actually trawl people’s accounts looking for the c-word? They’ll be reacting to people reporting your tweets.

I’ve pretty much left Twitter now because they’re happy to host nazis and hate speech yet censor seemingly spurious stuff. However, yes you’ve been warned before. If you valued your account it might have been an idea to stop the things they told you to stop doing.

You’ll probably get away with using your other account unless you start cuntifying it enough to get reported again.

All thorugh a lovely little app, that displays all the text at micro speed, and throwns in random questions that you have to stop and answer, so you can't just skip the whole thing.

I try to find enjoyment in the shitloads of mandatory training I have to do by making sure to literally not read a single word of the material as I click through it then see if I can pass the test anyway. This is made less interesting by the fact that the answer is almost always a variation on 'escalate to Compliance'.

I'm getting enjoyment from providing passive agressive feedback in the mandatory comments box at the end of each module.

Module A: John has worked in the same department for a long time, and has refused promotions on multiple occasions. Is his behaviour suspicious?
Answer: Yes, it could be that he is commiting a fraud of some kind and doesn't want to lose access to the opportunity, or be found out if someone replaces him.

Module B: Jenny has worked in the same department for many years and has refused promotions on multiple occasions. Is her behaviour suspicious?
Answer: No, it could be that she enjoys what she does and isn't interested in career progression.


Oh, just fuck off. Fucking piece of fucking shit.

Which of these is the possible penalty for...ALL OF THE ABOVE, AT THE SAME TIME, PLUS LASHES, PLUS PROBABLY CRUCIFIXION

At my workplace (a completely different field), we have an internal induction that is a very simple health & safety (gone mad, innit) style of induction and I am still absolutely flabbergasted that some people fail it even after reading the slides and taking their time.

The self-checkout machine at Sainsbury's repeatedly failed to recognise my finger taps yesterday. I had to keep on calling over the attendant whose fingers had sufficient magic to operate the system. It was all quite odd.

Take a sausage with you to use in this situation in the future :-)

At work, the biometric sensor often doesn't recognise one's finger swipe. However, and this always works, if you rub your finger across your forehead then on the biometric sensor, it works first time.

But then you'll have to look after that sausage. It'd be worse/more difficult than a Tamagotchi.
