People:
What do you mean you don't watch Game of Thrones?! You would love it, you're totally into that stuff!
Me:
Actually I've always disliked fantasy, especially high fantasy. I'm really a sci-fi fan.
People:
But aren't sci-fi and fantasy like the same thi-

Filed under sorry not sorry science fiction fantasy speculative fiction I'm still open to suggestions provided they don't fall in the part of the spectrum that's basically medieval europe also I'm a jerk that likes to read the source before seeing the adaptation and I since I can't commit to reading ASOIAF I can't commit to GoT I feel like I've made this post before probably because it happens every time a new episode airs

I don’t want to think about this, fanfiction has ruined the term “omega” for me

ASLDFKJAS;LDKFJASDL;KFJAS;DLFKJASDLKFJSKDFJDSKJFJ

Have you ever heard someone say “omega” in public?  It doesn’t happen often, usually if someone is talking about a frat or Revelations in the Bible.  It’s nigh impossible to not picture the person suddenly squatting down and caterwauling “I’M IN HEAAAAAAT”

Filed under fanfic this didn't use to be a problem but then the omega trope appeared with a vengence you guys I've wanted to use the word caterwauling for a really long time did i use it correctly?

So one of my coworkers is deaf and doesn’t read lips.  Today we had a staff meeting and I was asked to transcribe the meeting to her since I had my laptop.

First, let me be clear, I had no problem doing this.  My coworker is hella cool and a person I wish I was able to better communicate with.

What I did have a problem with was the managerial staff basically regulating me to pseudo translator.  No one else knows ASL (myself included) so why not hire a translator for the 1.5 hours it took?  Why wasn’t there a full write up of what we were going to discuss rather than it being 100% auditory?  I feel like there are just serious missteps being made but I don’t know enough to be really direct about it.  But how hard is it to have some consideration for a deaf employee when you’re located literally right next to Galludet?

And good lord the way that some customers interact with her is so fucking frustrating and it’s not even happening to me.  Sometimes people end up straight up dismissing her and direct their questions to me just because it’s easier for that 2-3 minute interaction.  I mean she takes it all in stride but I assume it’s because she’s used to having to do that.

Does anyone have any suggestions or can point me to any resources?  I did a basic google search of like deaf coworker etiquette but this is the first time I’ve ever experienced this and I really wanna be sure I’m not being an asshole or infantilizing.

PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.

This is such a little thing that can make or break a kid’s spirit.  Having to go back into McDonalds and ask for the “boy toy” or having to ask multiple times while ordering/tell my parents over and over to get the “boy toy” was humiliating in ways my 5-9 year old brain couldn’t comprehend.  This was the shitty icing on the shitty cake since I was constantly being mistaken for a boy, being teased and called a boy as an insult, etc.  
Power to kids who are genderfluid and flaunt it unabashedly, but that was/is not me.

Customers really need to stop asking me for beer and wine suggestions.  I am not a goddamn hostess at an upscale restaurant.  I am not a bartender where craft beer is on tap.  I’m a summer employee at a goddamn movie theater.  We don’t even have a full service kitchen/bar and we only have like 5 beers and 4 wines at any given time.  Do these people really care what wine pairs best with their fucking artisanal rosemary and truffle popcorn?  Go sit your ass down and enjoy your 8oz glass of pinot noir for $13, something that I haven’t even been able to do (try the beverages) because I haven’t been fucking paid yet and my 6th week is about to start.

Filed under personal work I swear the number 2 question after the number 1 question of how do I buy my tickets is which beer is an IPA? short answer: NONE OF THEM long answer: I don't make enough money and y'all don't give enough tips for me to answer that I'm so glad I'm good at compartmentalizing lol they're going to find this and Imma get fired
