~ 1. Introduction ~
Here is a detailed description of my wishlist for a Mario Kart 9 or 10/X (if Tour is considered the 9th installment) I don't expect everyone to like all my ideas. This is just a wishlist. I obviously would be happy with any Mario Kart Nintendo decides to put out but in a perfect world, this is what I would want for it to be the best Mario Kart imo. I hope you enjoy.

*¹ - All and All Mirror options are only available in Grand Prix. After a Circuit has been selected, It'll play each Cup in order of that specific Circuit.
*² - All race and battle modes will feature either a Solo Dash or the new Double Dash option similar to Mario Kart Double Dash for extra replayability and character combinations.
*³ - Even if not many people liked Automatic drifting, it was there for a reason for you to choose. Some liked it. Some didn't. It should be the player's choice.
*⁴ - Camera can also be changed freely during the race from the pause menu.

*¹ - Added a Pro difficulty to make the CPU feel more of a challenge.
*² - Wanted to split the vehicle selections between Solo Dash and Double Dash drivers. Solo Dash drivers will now only select between Karts and Bikes and Double Dash drivers will only select between ATVs and new Buggy vehicles. *Buggys are essential similar to the designs of the Karts used in Mario Kart Double Dash. ATVs are now bigger in size to help fit the idea of 2 drivers on one vehicle.
*³ - The original Super Mario Kart had 5 courses per Cup so I brought that option back for custom races.
*⁴ - Wanted to make the option available for players. These courses will be excluded from Laps option and be set to default when selected: ⁿ⁶⁴ Wario Stadium, ⁿ⁶⁴ Rainbow Road, ᵍᶜⁿ Baby Park, ᵍᶜⁿ Wario Colosseum, ³ᵈˢ Wuhu Loop, ³ᵈˢ Maka Wuhu, ³ᵈˢ Rainbow Road, ʷⁱⁱ ᵘ Mount Wario, and ʷⁱⁱ ᵘ Big Blue.

2023.05.28 17:14 gmthomp Advice to new LGIs and Aquatics Managers

As the summer semi-offically gets started, and I go into my 4th year of being a full time aquatics professional, I keep seeing the same ideas and posts come up again and again here and in forums like this. Lifeguards complaining about their unprofessional co-workers, working in unsafe single guard conditons for hours at a time, complaints about supervisors who don't have aquatics backgrounds asking for things theydon't realise are bad ideas.

This post is inteneded for anyone who has just been promoted to an aquatics managment positon, recently become and LGI, or anyone here who is thinking about full time work in the aquatics/lifeguard industry. I want to give you some practical advice that will probably make your job easier long term, even if it seems to do the opposite at first.

1) If you work in the aquatics or parks and recreation feild for long enough, you will eventually be supervised by someone who is not a lifeguard, does not have a background in saftey or risk managment, and you may be pressured into certifying every single candidate who applies for a job because you are likely short staffed right now.
Do not EVER comprimise your training standards just to get a body on the lifeguard stand. That person who deep down you question if they are qualified, but you certify them anyway, likely has a lot of problems as a general worker as well as issues as a lifeguard. They may not actually pay attention to their zone, they may be dangerously unprofessional, they probably won't show up when it really matters. I know you are short staffed, you are probably begging for help finding lifeguards. But if that candidate just doesn't care in initial training, they probably won't care when its real; by the time they see a real situation and don't react at all or as trained its already too late. It does not matter if turning them away pisses off your non-aquatics supervisor; if you know deep down this person isn't ready to become a lifeguard you will need to turn them away for your own good and the good of your staff. We have all trained duds, buts its better to have a small team of badasses than a large team of fools you have to pick up the slack for

2) Always in-service and pre-train your lifeguards to your specific facility standards and needs. It may sound inconvienient to have a lifeguard fresh out of training spend an entire shadow shift with a senior lifeguard, or to not have them on stand by themselves their first day(s), but the reality is the full specific approach of what you want them to do, takes a lot of orientation time. Forsaking training because of inconvenience actually makes your job much more difficult later on. Your staff are an investment, act like it and they will make you proud

3) Invest in aquatics specific education for yourself and your lead staff. You would be suprised what dedicated aquatics managment training can do and benefit your staff. The Red Cross has an aquatics mangers training course you should absolultely look into. Any formal managment and customer service training is better than nothing. If you aren't already become an LGI yourself as quickly as possible

4) Do not lower saftey standards just to meet guest demands. A customer is just a customer. They do not have the education or experience you have on risk factors in a pool. The number 1 reason drownings happen in pools with lifeguards is a facility going from multi-guard to single guard because they are so short staffed. You do not want to send someone home in a body bag. Every supervisor you will ever have will always tell you"saftey is always first" most of them don't actually mean it, or they don't understand that true saftey sometimes leads to undesirable actions.
You may receive direct orders to do something unsafe in the name of never letting your pool close. Demonstrate with physical objects to your supervisors why something is unsafe. I had to get in the water myself put timmy in the water in front of my superivisor, just to show her my pool was too cloudy to safley swim in and you can't see a body on the bottom; that was the only thing that made them realize it wasn't safe to open.
Your guests and managment may not actually understand what is in their own best intrests. Its your job as a supervisor to educate them

2023.05.28 17:08 No_Country3632 Housekeeping and the lack there of

 I am fairly new to the hotel industry, but have always been in the customer service field. Okay here’s the thing, in all of the years I have ever held a job, I have never seen an employee act this way and still be employed. The head housekeeper(HHK), if you can even call her that, doesn’t do a damn thing!!! Where I work, there’s 57 rooms all together, 3 separate buildings, each building has 2 stories. Its shouldn’t be an impossible task for the housekeeping staff. We have two, plus the HHK. On days that are fairly busy, we can have up to 23 departures. But normally, we average around 16 give or take. She’s been here for almost a year, but I don’t know how she even kept it that long. And the way she talks to our boss is so shockingly rude and disrespectful, I’d have fired her on the spot! She’s condescending to the staff, belittling, honestly just a complete bitch. (She tried pulling her shit with me but I put her in her place but at the same time, I cannot afford to lose my job.) There’s never enough laundry. I’m always scouring the property to get towels for guests, or basic supplies that go in the rooms like bars of soap and coffee. Her job is to make sure that what I just mentioned doesn’t happen. My boss is a really good boss, but for some reason, doesn’t put his foot down when it comes to this gal. It just blows me away that this is an ongoing issue. Yeah, I get that the hospitality industry has a major problem with being short staffed and the turnover rate is very high but that is still not an excuse!! I hate getting in the middle of shit but I’ve seen a number of housekeepers get hired and then they quit and blatantly say that it’s because of her. The owner of the place is 3-4 hours away from here and this hotel isn’t the only place he owns…how can I fix this situation? Or do I even attempt to do so?

2023.05.28 17:04 ihatemybrownsofa Parcel Receiving Service in Paris

Hello, I live in London and go frequently to Paris.
Due to Brexit, it's much better for me to get my EU purchases delivered in France, and then take them with me on the eurostar (I'm more worried about things getting lost/delayed in customs than the taxes themselves).
Is there a service that will receive and retain parcels for me in the city of Paris? I use a similar service in New York for example, NYBox.
The only one I have found so far was Clevver, but wondering if anyone knows of others (there's a lot that seem focused on COMPANY addresses for tax reasons, but I'm just an indiviual that likes to shop).
Yes, I know about LePoste and that stuff, but seems pretty complicated for a non-resident, and there would be parcels being delivered using all kinds of service.
Thank you very much

2023.05.28 17:04 violet_burn So picky, I'm afraid to not live some experiences in time

TL;DR: I'm looking for a non-exclusive FWB arrangement to live the best sex of my life in a repeatable way before looking for the mother of my kids. Super picky on the physical front and not that young anymore so this task seems daunting.
I (34M) just got out of a 6-year relationship, a few months ago, because I realized I did not truly know what I wanted.
I) I now know I want two things:
1) Experience sex I truly enjoy with a woman with whom I also have chemistry as a person, on a repeatable basis (anywhere between 6 months and 2-3 years), and without making any promises as to where the relationship will go, and without any promises of exclusivity (of course from both sides), at least before the first 3-6 months of sex have passed. I may need to experience this a few times since although I have dated and slept with women before, I never experienced exactly this.
2) then, and only then, can I start considering looking for the mother of my kids, and stay with her the 20 years it takes to raise our kids, since I do want kids and not too late in life (before 45, hopefully before 40). She might be one of the girls from step (1), if it turns out we both simply can't let go of each other and everything becomes solid.
II) Why I think like this:
1) Almost no one in my extended family could stay together while their kids grew up. My parents are no exception. Of course I can't control it, but I want to do everything I reasonably can to flush the "what ifs" out of my system before I commit for 20+ years, especially since I did have some serious cheating history back when I was younger. I don't want to settle for who I can find to then stumble on an intense, chemical match I have all the pain in the world saying no to. Of course this happens but if I've lived through such matches before, at least I'll know I'm not completely missing on it.
2) previous 6-year relationship was almost without actual sex (everything but, 3 times in 6 years). The two LTRs before (3 years, 5 years), we did have sex but I was not physically attracted to them enough to be happy. I was 100% physically attracted to #3 (most recent one) but after much back and forth, we both understood she essentially wanted true ("lifetime") commitment from my part before really opening up to that part of the relationship.
III) Why I feel daunted:
1) I have no trouble approaching random girls in many places, strike a conversation and get phone numbers. What I do have a problem with, is finding someone I'm actually physically attracted to. I'm super picky when it comes to who I like physically :-/. I can be attracted on the personality with much more people than I can physically. I've tried "growing the physical attraction from the emotional/feelings bond" during my first 5 year LTR: it did not work even after all that time.
For example, recently I was at a huge conference on sustainability, with a large part of the crowd in their 20s ans 30s. In the thousands of people I could see there during daytime, maybe a few girls lit my radar. At the end of event party: zero. When I do approach the girls I do find attractive, since the sample is small, so far I only found girls with interests completely at odds with mine, and no chemistry as people. I could not find common ground even trying many topics and letting them talk about and develop anything they were interested about. So it did not work.
2) The place where I find the most girls I am attracted to physically is on the street. I live in a large European city, and people of all ages, classes and circles simply can't avoid the street to go somewhere, as there is not enough room for cars to be efficient here. I'll go by a large crowd and spot : "there. that is the physical type of girl I am attracted to".
Unfortunately, the street is also one of the most awkward places to meet someone. I might be speeding up on a bike in the opposite direction, while she is walking with her family to a brunch a stone's throw away.
3) even if I do find someone I'm attracted to, that I actually meet, with some mutual personality chemistry, and who is single, I know I will be upfront about what I want as soon as I will sense ambiguity (no promises and even no exclusivity, until we have mutually enjoyable sex regularly), and this might put even more filtering on who will accept this. I've done "half promises by omission" in the past and now I just can't do this. I might also do some exclusivity for a few months to be invested in the relationship, but I won't go beyond a few months and I'll probably move on, if great sex does not materialize. I've tried waiting it out before, it did not work.
4) Time is running out. I am attracted to girls in their 20s (around 22-28) but I'm 34. If I reach 40 before finding who I'm actually looking for for phase 1 of my dating life, my chances will dwindle very rapidly. Already, I'm out of many circles where it would be easier to find them.
5) I work a hell of a lot in my professional life, but I won't have the finances that go with it at least for a few more years (long term startup). So it's not like I can spend all my afternoons cold approaching strangers.
6) of course I am putting in place what I need to find the right psychiatrist, also physical therapy to take care of my joints so I can train and stay fit (people consider me fit, but I won't until I can clearly see my own abs), sleep earlier, eat healthier etc. I read a lot of self development books from a varied spectrum of sources. This takes time.
IV) My questions:
While step III.6 is completing as fast as I can, I don't want to miss on yet another spring/summer to have the honest and sincere fun I always craved.
1) Have you been in my shoes of being too picky physically about women, with time ticking, and looking for great sex before any commitment? How did you overcome it? Are you happy now? Is it just that I have to reunite my 2 phases (great connection and long term) or nothing will work?
2) what places do you recommend to find the girls I'm looking for, especially ones that would be statistically more open to open relationships? I'm considering couple dancing classes (I actually love dancing itself), environmental "soft activism" groups, or simply roaming the streets, parks, museums with a like-minded friend.
3) Is there something seriously wrong with my current approach and state of mind, and if so, what, and most importantly, why exactly?
Essentially I'm looking for guidance on my next steps to be efficient about this and not lose more precious months/years.
Thank you!!

Broadcast Lists
If you need to send the same message to multiple people without creating a group, WhatsApp's broadcast lists come in handy. Create a broadcast list by going to the Chats tab, tapping on the three dots menu, and selecting "New Broadcast." Add the desired contacts, compose your message, and hit send. This way, you can save time and effort by avoiding repetitive individual messages.
Archiving Chats
To keep your chat list organized, you can archive chats that are less active or no longer relevant. Simply swipe left on the chat you want to archive and tap the archive button. Archived chats will be moved to a separate folder, allowing you to declutter your main chat screen while still having access to those conversations whenever needed.

WhatsApp tips and tricks: Privacy and Security

Protecting your WhatsApp account is crucial, and enabling two-step verification adds an extra layer of security. Go to WhatsApp settings, select "Account," then "Two-step verification" to set it up. By creating a six-digit PIN, you ensure that even if someone gets hold of your SIM card, they won't be able to access your WhatsApp without the PIN.

To adjust these settings, navigate to "Account" in WhatsApp settings and select "Privacy." Customize your privacy settings according to your preferences and enjoy a secure and private chatting experience.

Additional Tips and Tricks

Backing Up Chats
It's important to back up your WhatsApp chats regularly to prevent any data loss. You can back up your chats to your device's local storage or even to cloud storage services like Google Drive or iCloud. In WhatsApp settings, go to "Chats" and select "Chat Backup" to configure your backup preferences and ensure your conversations are safe and recoverable.
Muting Conversations
If you find yourself in a group or individual chat that's too active or noisy, you can mute notifications for that specific conversation. Simply open the chat, tap on the contact or group name at the top, and select "Mute notifications." Choose the desired duration, and you'll no longer be bothered by constant notifications, allowing you to focus on what matters most.
Using WhatsApp Payments
WhatsApp offers a secure and convenient way to send and receive money through its Payments feature. Link your bank account, set up a UPI PIN, and you're ready to make payments to your contacts or even businesses. Simply open a chat, tap on the attachment icon, and select "Payment" to send money hassle-free.

2023.05.28 17:00 mduda59625 A Complete Guide to Moving to the Sunshine State

Moving to a new state can be both exciting and overwhelming, especially if you’re relocating to a state as diverse and unique as Florida. Known for its beautiful beaches, warm climate, and vibrant culture, Florida is a popular destination for people of all ages looking for a fresh start.
Whether you’re moving to Florida for work, retirement, or just a change of scenery, it’s important to do your research and plan ahead to ensure a smooth transition. In this complete guide to relocating to Florida, we’ll cover everything you need to know to make your move as stress-free as possible.

Why Move to Florida?

Before we dive into the logistics of moving to Florida, let’s first explore some of the reasons why this state is such a popular destination. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you might want to consider moving to the Sunshine State:

Planning Your Move to Florida

Once you’ve decided that Florida is the right state for you, it’s time to start planning your move. Here are some key steps to follow to ensure a smooth transition:
  1. Research your new city or town: Florida is a big state with a lot of different regions and cities to choose from. Before you commit to a specific area, take the time to research your options and visit in person if possible. Consider factors like cost of living, job opportunities, and proximity to family and friends.
  2. Hire a reputable moving company: Moving to a new state is a big undertaking, and it’s important to have a reliable moving company on your side. Consider using a company that specializes in driving U-Haul and Penske trucks, such as found at the MovingTruckDriver website, to ensure that your belongings arrive safely and on time.
  3. Get your finances in order: Moving to a new state can be expensive, so it’s important to have your finances in order before you make the move. Create a budget to account for expenses like moving costs, rent or mortgage payments, and utilities.
  4. Update your address and contact information: Before you move, make sure to update your address and contact information with your bank, credit card companies, and other important organizations.
  5. Pack strategically: When packing for your move, be sure to pack strategically to make the unpacking process easier. Label boxes clearly and consider packing items that you’ll need right away in a separate box.

Finding Housing in Florida

Moving to a new state can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to finding a new place to live. In Florida, there are many unique housing options to choose from, ranging from apartments and condos to single-family homes and beachfront properties. The key to finding the perfect housing option for you is to do your research and be prepared to act quickly.
One option for finding housing in Florida is to work with a local real estate agent. A good agent can help you navigate the local housing market and provide insight into different neighborhoods and areas that may suit your needs. They can also help you with the paperwork and negotiation process, making the process of finding a new home as smooth as possible.
If you prefer to search for housing on your own, there are many online resources available to help you find a new place to live. Popular websites like Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com allow you to search for properties in specific areas and filter your search results based on criteria like price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and more.
It’s important to keep in mind that the housing market in Florida can be competitive, especially in popular areas like Miami and Orlando. To increase your chances of finding the perfect home, be prepared to act quickly and make an offer as soon as you find a property that you love.

Dealing with Logistics

Moving to a new state can be a logistical nightmare, but with the right planning and preparation, you can minimize the stress and ensure a smooth transition. Here are some tips for dealing with the logistics of moving to Florida:

Checklist for Moving to Florida

If you’re planning a move to Florida, use this checklist to ensure that you have everything you need for a smooth transition:

Conclusion

Moving to Florida can be a daunting task, but with the right planning and preparation, it can also be an exciting and rewarding experience. By researching your options for housing, dealing with logistics, and familiarizing yourself with the unique culture and customs of the Sunshine State, you can ensure a smooth transition and start enjoying all that Florida has to offer. Don’t forget to utilize a moving service that specializes in driving U-Haul and Penske trucks such as MovingTruckDriver for a safe and efficient move.

2023.05.28 16:59 Eidalac How to generate a map of random, connected polygons (Godot version v4.0.3)

How to generate a map of random, connected polygons (Godot version v4.0.3)
I'm attempting to generate a map of connected, randomly generated, polygons to act as a map of city districts for a management game.
Something like this:
https://www.downtowntoledo.org/media/384560/downtown-toledo-web-article-map.jpg
However the results I'm getting are... not great. I can generate an initial starting polygon fine but the others added on get distorted. In this test the center is fine, but all the surrounding polygons should be 4 sided with the same dimension.

https://preview.redd.it/ydde70bqnm2b1.png?width=613&format=png&auto=webp&s=db8ff07d1ce924806013e38bb892e54f35d2d1e7
This is the current code I'm using to spawn the secondary polygons ('poly' is the central one that's already created at this step) with all RNG disabled for testing ATM.
On top of the distortion I also need to figure out to how to ensure any adjacent polygons are connected and to fill in gaps, looking to generate a connected map of between 20-30 polygons.
I'm certain I'm overlooking a very simple solution but my brain is just not parsing it.
for index in poly.polygon.size(): var point_a = poly.polygon[index] var point_b var point_c if (index + 1 < poly.polygon.size()): point_b = poly.polygon[index+1] else: point_b = poly.polygon[0] point_c = Vector2((point_a.x + point_b.x) / 2 , (point_a.y + point_b.y) / 2) var lamba = center.angle_to_point(point_c) radius = 80 #* rng.randf_range(0.9, 1.1) var center_2 = Vector2(point_c.x + radius * cos(lamba), point_c.y + radius * sin(lamba)) var polygon_array_2 = [] number_of_vertix = 4 #rng.randi_range(4, 7) for count in number_of_vertix: if (count == 0): polygon_array_2.append(Vector2(point_a.x , point_a.y)) elif (count == 1): polygon_array_2.append(Vector2(point_b.x , point_b.y)) else: radius = 80 #* rng.randf_range(0.9, 1.1)
 `theta = deg_to_rad(((360 / (number_of_vertix)) * 1) * (count))` `theta = theta #* rng.randf_range(0.99, 1.05)` `this_x = center_2.x + (cos(theta) * radius)` `this_y = center_2.y - (sin(theta) * radius)` `this_x = this_x #* rng.randf_range(0.99, 1.01)` `this_y = this_y #* rng.randf_range(0.99, 1.01)` `polygon_array_2.append(Vector2(this_x, this_y))` `polygon_array_2.sort_custom(func(a,b): return (a - center_2).angle() < (b - center_2).angle())` `map_array.append(polygon_array_2)`

Hello! Ano sa tingin niyo ang banks na may good customer service when it comes to credit cards?
submitted by flecherr to PHCreditCards [link] [comments]


2023.05.28 16:52 themanthatrambles Yes I wrote a book and most likely it doesn't have a point so if your bored have at it!

As I get ready to start my day on this wonderful Sunday. I’m heading to work because someone called out to cover a shift. My wife is getting ready for work as well, which is usual because when you run your own small business it’s just as hard finding people to work and she had someone call out too. I’m not going to sit here and complain and bitch because of the state of the economy it’s just fcked up. Everyone wants to restructure and make things easier and employ people to do things on their own or be simplified by a machine. That’s just the way the world is, just wishing I knew where the damn work ethic went. News flash people are lazy and now before anyone goes on their empowered bitch session calling out whatever they can or making justifications. Here is the reality you have great workers, good workers, ok workers, bad workers and people that just don’t give a shit. I’m not coming on here to bitch and complain but to tell a story and a true one at that. I will ramble on, and people will bitch about that too! Anyways on to my story and for the record I’m aware this is too long and only like 1% will read it fully and to you good old VZ maybe one day but this is even beyond you, but you played a big part. I wish whole heartedly this business would change, and customers would change, and the world would change, cause for fcks sake people need to freaking hug each other. Also, for the record I’m generally just an honest hard-working dude that gives a shit about everyone around me and my heart bleeds through my sleeves. I have done my best to just show people there are just good people out there!
So anyways here’s my damn story and my frustrations which overflowed yesterday and to start this story let’s start with some changes and effects. The easiest way is to start this script for a shitty movie because I can’t shut my trap. Anyways I was talking to an employee a few weeks ago that has been in this industry for a lot longer than me for the record. I would say they are from the bag phone age. I started 18 years ago selling flip phones with no color and every phone had a different charging port. I have always been a fixer and if you have been in this industry and have grown with it and you have a general understanding people will come to you for help. Now I encourage people to ask me questions and for help there is no better feeling than taking care of a customer or employee that is a little lost and being selfless about it. Just for example a customer came in recently that lost her son 3 years ago. She had a voicemail saved and didn’t want to lose it. I assured her that I got her covered. A long time ago before this wonderful age of tech. The solution here was to hook up a mini tape recorder, play the voicemail, and record it on the tape. For all you young pups it’s those square things with brown film running through it. So, I showed her how to email the voicemail and then helped her save it to the cloud. I completed both and played the message, I comforted her knowing as we go through this process, she’s going to get emotional. I didn’t try to sell her anything, my goal was simply for her to know that no matter what happens to her phone or her service that she can hear her son’s voice and she won’t lose it. Now for all you uneducated sales people sometimes it’s not all about making money, but it will result in money. Here is the fact and I guess the moral of the story. While I didn’t make a cent today, I made a feeling for someone. I showed that I cared and took care of them. Now when they go into a store or call customer service for something, and they don’t get treated right or someone somewhere bitches about there cell phone service to this nice lady she is going to mention the nice gentleman and what store he’s at. So, say what you want but that’s a strong lead in my book. Anyways off this exit and back on the road. This employee knows I will help figure out the issues and since we lost our account managers our direct connection to the good Old VZ was cut, that the days of fixing the issues are limited. I had to tell them that are days of going above beyond are ending and there are going to be situations where we just can’t do anything. Mind you this isn’t because it is not possible or that it’s the wrong thing to do. It’s because the person on the other end of the phone these days is comparable to having a toddler come up with a business plan for a fortune 500 company and it work flawlessly. This isn’t the CS reps that have been around and know the system and care about people. This is Jake that has you repeat yourself ten times over while he’s talking to bobby and frank trying to figure out what the hell they are doing. For the record, outsourced names have been withheld because they get to choose it on their first day of work in outsourcing. When I informed this employee of CS outsourcing more, well it was the same look my mom gave me when I came home one night with my ear pierced and bleach blond hair.
Now I started with the big old red many moons ago. I was supposed to transfer states with what used to be a fantastic company that was the epicenter of customer service (oddly no longer around) decided that money had a shit ton more value than people and my column in excel got lost. I was supposed to go to that home office in the new state and have a store all set to start at. Yeah lol no one had a clue of who I was, and something got lost along the way. No biggie just 6 years of blood, sweat and tears. So started my 18 yearish journeys indirectly with VZ. Back then you could do well for yourself to start a company and open a VZ store. There were small companies, medium companies and large ones. It was a different world where customer service was king and VZ was the shiznit! Now I’m biased here but sold the beep beep, the Nokia snake game, the sidekick! I had experience with it all. Man was I nervous from what I came from starting from the bottom as an employee coming from being the go-to manager. I could write a top selling book about these 6 years that formed me. Maybe if I get upvoted enough that could be a career path as the masses are typing TL/DDGAS/CRC. Lmao typing that just let me know how my dad felt when we were laughing as he was moving the Nintendo controller trying to move the person on the screen. Oh, that’s just fcking great damn I’m old lol. Anyways I learned that leaders and mind you leaders and managers are too different things folks. I saw selfless caring people that ran a great business and to this day even with all the bullshit treat every customer like family. Seriously don’t people fcking miss that when you walked into a store and got a smile instead of someone looking at you like your wasting their time. Yes, I know I said I wouldn’t bitch anyways back on track. I learned how to make money feel good about yourself and other people recommended you and it just went full circle. So that is how I have tried to run my business. That was the start of my journey which brought me here to make a long ass post that no one will read because I want people to give out more fcking hugs! Lmao!!
The paragraphs are for the one commented I have potential this was the next chapter I appreciate you!! I hope you’re enjoying this one! Anyways off I went and started the same cycle moved to another state and there was a lot more than just Big 5 back then and I had the experience of managing a store and enjoyed what I did. So, I started with another small VZ company and shaped the last 12 years of my career. I have had a blast and I love the company I work for which is one of the Big 5 cause that’s all that exists these days. I was fortunate to be able to continue with the same values and teach and show a bunch of people along the way. The crazy thing is you wouldn’t imagine the things you come across in this industry. I have had people threaten to kill me multiple times, had people throw things, knock over chairs, there have been multiple bathroom accidents on the sales floor, lots and lots of crying, some picketing here and there. I mean just why people. I had someone threaten to try to destroy one of my stores by bashing it online and to everyone he knew. The reason was for a phone he had over the warranty of a year, and he wanted it replaced. Now I kindly told this man what to do and how to handle his situation I also said if you want to bash my store because I am doing everything I can to help you please go ahead. I am confident in my ability to provide service. You know because well I haven’t done anything else, and I truly love what I do, and I wouldn’t leave the industry. I will put up with any bullsh!t and I will do it for that nice lady that just needed someone to care and save her voicemail. Now on to the last paragraph and if you made it this far thank you! I also realize at this point I am just bitching lol.
Anyways here is the thing we are in a service-based industry. If you slowly take the ability of providing service to the service-based industry it makes it super freaking difficult. So here are the realities people need phones, they need stores, they need customer service. It’s not a want or a luxury, there is a shit ton of need. We can’t change any of it, nothing you read or that I wrote will make a difference. So, I guess I’m asking myself was there a point of all of this and thinking of Eminem lyrics of Stan lmao. Did I just do the same thing that I am bitching about a lot of bitching. I guess I do not know what the hell I’m reaching for and joyfully doing it on a public forum lol. So, I guess the point is if you read this long as fucking post there are good people that generally care. Slow the fck down and ne nice try to understand that everyone has sh!t going on. So, if you read this or just scrolled to the bottom cause its to fcking long be a little nicer today cause this post will be seamlessly lost among a bunch of other posts. To you shady reps out there that give the industry the name it is be a little less shady today maybe care a little. As I’m getting judged now lmao for those companies that push your people to be shady… well you probably won’t see this. To big VZ you control it all you squeezed the juice out the lemon. You’re going to and will continue to drink the lemonade. I will continue my journey and ultimately this is how I support my family. I’m going to continue what I do and I’m going to enjoy it. It just sucks that it gets harder and it’s not that it gets harder because it’s harder work. It gets harder because people make harder work to make more money. Have a wonderful day folks! All you great, good, ok workers and the ones that show up thank you. I guess even you shitty people too cause in the end you don’t control that either as long as you show up as well. Peace out said the rambling man!

So, I started with another small VZ company and shaped the last 12 years of my career. I have had a blast and I love the company I work for which is one of the Big 5 cause that’s all that exists these days. I was fortunate to be able to continue with the same values and teach and show a bunch of people along the way. The crazy thing is you wouldn’t imagine the things you come across in this industry. I have had people threaten to kill me multiple times, had people throw things, knock over chairs, there have been multiple bathroom accidents on the sales floor, lots and lots of crying, some picketing here and there. I mean just why people. I had someone threaten to try to destroy one of my stores by bashing it online and to everyone he knew. The reason was for a phone he had over the warranty of a year, and he wanted it replaced. Now I kindly told this man what to do and how to handle his situation I also said if you want to bash my store because I am doing everything I can to help you please go ahead. I am confident in my ability to provide service. You know because well I haven’t done anything else, and I truly love what I do, and I wouldn’t leave the industry. I will put up with any bullsh!t and I will do it for that nice lady that just needed someone to care and save her voicemail. Now on to the last paragraph and if you made it this far thank you! I also realize at this point I am just bitching lol.
Anyways here is the thing we are in a service-based industry. If you slowly take the ability of providing service to the service-based industry it makes it super freaking difficult. So here are the realities people need phones, they need stores, they need customer service. It’s not a want or a luxury, there is a shit ton of need. We can’t change any of it, nothing you read or that I wrote will make a difference. So, I guess I’m asking myself was there a point of all of this and thinking of Eminem lyrics of Stan lmao. Did I just do the same thing that I am bitching about a lot of bitching. I guess I do not know what the hell I’m reaching for and joyfully doing it on a public forum lol. So, I guess the point is if you read this long as fucking post there are good people that generally care. Slow the fck down and ne nice try to understand that everyone has sh!t going on. So, if you read this or just scrolled to the bottom cause its to fcking long be a little nicer today cause this post will be seamlessly lost among a bunch of other posts. To you shady reps out there that give the industry the name it is be a little less shady today maybe care a little. As I’m getting judged now lmao for those companies that push your people to be shady… well you probably won’t see this. To big VZ you control it all you squeezed the juice out the lemon. You’re going to and will continue to drink the lemonade. I will continue my journey and ultimately this is how I support my family. I’m going to continue what I do and I’m going to enjoy it. It just sucks that it gets harder and it’s not that it gets harder because it’s harder work. It gets harder because people make harder work to make more money. Have a wonderful day folks! All you great, good, ok workers and the ones that show up thank you. I guess even you shitty people too cause in the end you don’t control that either as long as you show up as well. Peace out said the rambling man!

2023.05.28 16:46 siyans Why should I even try to go find work

I guess this is extremely sentimental and emotional.
I literally dont see why I should even try to find something, what is even the point.
Without going into too much information and detail I started with a very well paid job with great social benefits, but that job was so boring and mental killing I quit.
Then I did a job I loved, but the salary was near minimum wage, even tho I loved the job it was too demanding to do 40 hours a week, so eventually because of money and some other personal problem I was fired
then jumped into several different kind of job, where most of them I never keep them for more than a year.
Recently I went into a burn out and was sick for nearly 2 months, the job I had killed my brain, my fun because it was extremely boring and long and I had to make the decision of quitting, I was always on the verge of crying and panicking just to go work.
Now im here, 40 years old, no real diploma and there no job I could find that will not eventually kill me mentally, because no matter what, there no chance I will ever find job similar level of pay of the well paid one, at best I could get a big maybe 40k a year, because with no diploma and no relevant experience in anything, you are way too restricted.
When I look at job posting site like Indeed, there like 5 main category
  1. the warehouse job, either in a factory, like welders and such or sorting facility like amazon or mail
  2. the customer service slave, retail or some more "advance" with customer support or relation
  3. desk job, like secretary answering phone or compiling data
  4. the "sell this shit" job, like marketing, realtor and many "mlm" ideas
  5. require a skill that you dont have, basically anything there literally no way you could even have a chance to "fight" for, because you have no relevance in the skill they ask.
so really, I dont even know what and how, no matter I will get sick of the job, mainly because its never be paid good enough to fall back again because of not "enough" money

2023.05.28 16:41 TwentyCharactersShor [Serious] so, I have a good use case for "web3.0" after having a very annoying experience with Amazon Prime...

Backstory
Over the last few years I've really embraced streaming services typically at the cost of my own media library.
I had hundreds of DVDs that I collected over the years. As home media capabilities became more pragmatic, I moved my dvd collection to a storage array and streamed in my house.
As the kids got older and our devices proliferated - (6 laptops, 4 tablets, 5 TVs, 4 phones) the hassle of maintaining the home media service became too much and I stopped. Prime, netflix and Disney reigned supreme..Nice and easy to use.
The Fuck Up Last night the family sat down to watch something, queue 30 minutes of the usual fighting. Wife remembered we had a film that she hadn't seen. We bought it on Prime for the kids to watch with some friends. We scrolled.
It wasn't there.
We checked that we had bought it. Yep, email receipt still exists.
Film was there, however we had to buy it. Queue argument that I must had rented it. Checked receipt again, nope. Bought it.
Spent 30 minutes trying to get answers on Prime. Fucking useless. Another 20 minutes trying to get through the wonderful "help" system to get to a human. Bounced around 6 times and finally got through to someone on live chat.
That was fun. We got a torrent of poor language about how it was our fault for apparently not watching the film more. Very confused, we asked why this was relevant. No answer. Lots of questions about how is it a newish movie is available on the platform that we purchased isn't available to us...
Bounced to another agent who could write in English (or maybe chatGPT) who gave us a voucher to spend on the film. No answer as to why we'd lost access.
Googling around turns out it's quite common for Prime to remove things. They don't even notify you.
web3.0
So, how can web 3.0 help?
For starters, we should start introducing different license types. I have no problem paying if I know what I'm getting. A 6-month lease for HD. Lifetime for UHD, 3 months for SD...all fine and valid. But most importantly it should not be revoked.
For the likes of Amazon and the content creators, they can see ownership quite clearly and the blockchain would typically reduce the costs associated with running this ledger privately.
For content creators it means they can be more creative on how the sell goods and ensures customers have a great experience.
We cancelled our Prime membership and won't renew. I'm happy to go to BluRay or similar and have spent the morning putting together a 10TB raid array.

2023.05.28 16:38 Indiana_J_Frog Help with AVG problem

AVG is the best I can afford right now (free), but it's having a problem. It's blocking a site I don't want blocked, and when I go to the settings to see the blocked sites, it's telling me there ARE no blocked sites. And AVG doesn't have a contact email, and I absolutely despise talking to customer service through phone. How do I fix this?

2023.05.28 16:29 Odd_Blacksmith_5454 My Vasectomy Experience and Guide

Throwaway account due to containing some personal info

Thought I would share my experience, since you’re likely scrolling through this subreddit and reading a bunch of horror stories mixed with people saying the procedure wasn’t bad at all. I’m in the latter group, but I thought I would go into some extra detail on why the procedure wasn’t so bad as well as putting together a rough guide on optimizing your experience. One disclaimer is that I just had this procedure performed a week ago so I can’t speak to PVPS but I’m currently experiencing no pain. Also, I’m not a doctor so if your doctor recommends anything that contradicts with what I said, go with their recommendation. Feel free to comment with additional advice.

Step 1: Finding a Doctor
You’ll want to find a board-certified urologic surgeon (urologist) in your area that is willing to do a vasectomy on someone your age and performs at least 50 vasectomies per year(1). Your primary care physician can help give you a recommendation. You should ask at least these three questions before/during consultation with the urologist:
- How many vasectomies do you perform a year?
- How long have you been performing vasectomies at this rate/year?
- What type of vasectomy do you perform?
It’s also worth checking if the doctor has any discipline actions against them. Below is a link to the NYS website that can help with this (2), you may need to do some digging to find the equivalent for your state.
If possible, bring a friend/SO to the consolation to take notes. The doctor will likely thoroughly explain the procedure which, while helpful, made me so nervous that I stopped fully listening and then had to make some calls afterword to have them go over what they said again (don’t be like me, bring a buddy).
When it comes to vasectomy types, you’ll hear about a lot of options on the internet (traditional vs. no scalpel, cauterization vs. clips vs. open ended, no needle vs. needle). The reddit consensus seems to be that no-scalpel open ended is the preference, but it’s important to hear the trained urologists arguments for their method. FWIW I received a traditional with cauterization and haven’t had any issues so far (knock on wood).
If the doctor’s answers to your questions are satisfactory, ask them how much they charge for the procedure (assuming insurance doesn’t cover it) and when they can perform the vasectomy. You should ideally pick a date that doesn’t have anything too mentally taxing the week before, and too physically taxing the next two weeks after. Fridays are great as you can schedule PTO on Friday and Monday to have four days dedicated to recovery.
A note on budgeting, my procedure was $945 in total but the cost can vary. My recommended budget is $2,000 - $3,000. In addition to the procedure itself, there are a few items I recommend purchasing (listed below) to make recovery easier, and the amount left over can help cover any additional work that hopefully won’t be necessary.
Shopping List:
- Jockstraps or athletic underwear (something that provides a lot of support to the nuts) x 4 packs (12 pair)
- Big box of gauze pads (ideally 25-50 pads)
- Hand sanitizer
- Neosporin (or similar antibiotic ointment)
- Tylenol (just in case)
- Something fun for after surgery (ex. subscribe to a new streaming service, buy a new video game, get a book from the library)
- Frozen peas (2 packs) or ice packs specifically designed for vasectomy recovery
- Ziplock bags (large enough to place frozen peas within)
- Fiber bars / bananas, eggs, spinach, minced garlic, tortilla wraps, cheese, bell peppers
- Laptop Bed Desk Table Tray Stand
- Wireless head phones

Step 2: The Week Before
This was the hardest part of the procedure in my experience. The thought of sharp objects near your sack isn’t a savory one, and it’s natural to be nervous. The toughest part I found was that I was having trouble sleeping. If you’re in a similar situation, my recommendation is to use this time to do some prep work. Since you can’t lift anything heavy after surgery, get your chores out of the way ahead of time so you can recover as long as possible. This is also a good opportunity to move some things around to minimize the amount of movement you need to do after surgery (ex. cleaning your nightstand and moving your Tylenol / gauze pads to an easy to reach location). Finally, feel free to do some meal prep so you spend minimal time standing by a stove after surgery.
Your doctor will likely tell you this, but I’ll reiterate, don’t take any blood thinners the week before. If you do, reschedule the appointment. Also, it may be worth asking your doctor if they can give you a valium (ask this ahead of the appointment date as they will likely need some time to get approval). I couldn’t get any valium during my surgery, but that also could be because I didn’t ask in advance.
Something I do recommend taking a few days before are those bananas / fiber bars. The thought of pooping right after surgery isn’t a great one, so a high fiber diet can help clean you out beforehand.
One final tip I have is to masturbate a few times the day before. You shouldn’t masturbate for 1-2 weeks after surgery so it's good to get it out of your system now.

Step 3: The Day Of
I would recommend taking a half-day today if your surgery is in the afternoon. While taking a full day can be tempting, you may want some work to keep your mind preoccupied.
When leaving the house to go to surgery, bring the following with you:
- Paperwork + insurance card
- Check (or credit card if they accept it)
- Wireless headphones
- Your phone
- Frozen peas (optional)
- Someone to drive home you after surgery
Now it’s time for the gory details and, honestly, it’s not all that gory. My urologist did inject lidocaine into my ballsack and he mentioned that there would be a burning sensation, but I felt very little. I’ve had lidocaine in my foot before and it was way worse that time. The actual insertion of the needle also didn’t hurt as much as I was expecting (less painful than getting blood drawn). My theory is that the ballsack doesn’t have much nerves tied to it (instead it’s the balls within the sack that feel pain and an experienced doctor won’t be bumping into those).
Once the lidocaine is in, you don’t really feel much after. It sorta feels like your doctor is thumbing at your scrotum but that’s about it. The worst part are the thoughts going through your head and I have a tip for that. Remember those wireless headphones I mentioned? Ask your doctor if you can wear them during surgery and play a meditation video during the procedure. Here’s a link to the one I used (3). Focusing on the meditation should help get you through. Overall, I would rate the physical pain of the procedure to be less than a dental cleaning / blood donation.

Step 4: What to Expect After
You’ll start to feel an aching feeling about 1-2 hours after the procedure as the lidocaine wears off. The good news is that, as far as I can tell, this is the worst the pain will be, assuming you don’t lift anything heavier than a phonebook during recovery. Now’s the time to elevate your feet and begin icing your balls. Put the frozen peas into the ziplock bag and then apply to the top surface of your underwear (which should still have a gauze pad under it as well). Set a timer for 20 minutes and begin the icing. Once the timer goes off, set another one for 15 minutes, put the frozen peas in the freezer and wait. You should also use a paper towel to wipe off any moisture from the ziplock bag. Ideally, you have someone else making runs to/from the freezer but an alternative could be to get a small icebox to store the peas near your couch/bed. Once this timer goes off, begin applying the peas again. Keep doing this for ~4 hours, then you can do it for less the next day if you don’t feel the ache. After the next day is over, the peas can be applied if you notice bruising. Bruising isn’t uncommon and can last 2-3 weeks after application. My bruising went away after 2-3 days and the aching mostly went away after the second day.
Speaking of the ache, let’s talk about it. Much like the surgery, it’s not as bad as I was expecting. I would describe it as that feeling you get when you sit in a weird position too long in tight pants, a mild pressing sensation over the scrotum and iliac furrows area. The peas and lack of movement will help reduce the pain/swelling (though it likely won’t go away as the peas are on you). Something that also surprised me is how small the cuts on the scrotum actually are (look less like major surgery and more like I nicked myself shaving).
Our new goal will be to minimize risk of infection. After about 4 hours after the surgery, feel free to swap out your gauze pad with a new one, with a very light amount of Neosporin on it. Be sure to clean your hand prior to these swaps (wash thoroughly and apply sanitizer). Right before bed, switch out both underwear and gauze. Keep legs in elevated position while you sleep (put a pillow under your legs). The next day, my recommended gauze swap out is as follows:
- Morning: Replace current gauze with a new one that has a light layer of neosporin on it
- 1-2 hours later: Swap out gauze with a fresh one that has no neosporine on it
- Before bed: Swap out gauze again for a new one with very light neosporine
Prior to applying that gauze pad before bed, it would be a good time to take a light shower. When applying soap to your scrotum, my recommendation is to lather the soap on your hands and then lightly flick the suds to your sack. This way, you have soap on your sack without actually touching it (minimizing risk of your hands infecting it or prematurely opening the stitches). If you are struggling with a cold sore, I would recommend washing your haiface separately from the body washing (ideally after washing your body and while bent over the bath spicket).
Some other tips I’m following is to treat it like any other wound recovery:
- Eating foods rich in vitamin c and protein.
- Avoiding sugar
- Keeping feet elevated with a pillow
- Keeping hands washed and sanitized
- Using the bed desk to discourage a cat/dog/child from hopping into your lap.
Follow doctors instructions regarding showering and abstinence. The current guideline is to avoid working out 1 week after surgery, but I’m going to wait 2 weeks as an added precaution.
One final suggestion for you. Throughout this process you may have been concerned about PVPS (post-vasectomy pain syndrome). The most concerning aspect of this illness is that it may arrive 5-7 years after surgery and can be tricky for urologists to identify as it seems to be the result of multiple different causes, including the following:
- Infection
- Nerve compression
- Damage to the vas deferens tube
- Back pressure
- Scar tissue
While there’s no guarantee that this won’t occur, the steps above should at least help minimize risk of infection/scarring. Some further precautions you may want to consider are as follows:
- Avoid working out until at least 1 month after surgery and then begin by focusing on light cardio (avoid heavy weights for now)
- Consider investing in a hot tub in the distant future (this is pure speculation on my part but, if a potential cause is back pressure of sperm, then regular soaks in a heated environment may kill off said sperm and relieve pressure)
Hope all of instruction above provide you with some guidance and peace of mind regarding this process and, if you have any other tips for vasectomies, I would love to hear about them.
