I bought a Kobo H2O (it's great to be able read books in the bath again!) and left the film on it because I kind of like it. Weird for a tech but true - I also left the film on my Nokia until it started to unstick itself and annoy me. Funnily enough the Kobo is FAR more responsive with the film off. I am fail.

Just watch the War of the Worlds remake. All the BOOOJ and BWAAAMP you can take.

The best ending for this would have been if Paint Lady ran an extended ID check and full security theatre on the transaction because "I don't want your card stopped by the bank because they didn’t recognize you purchasing it. Better to be safe than sorry, right?"

If this is in a deli then they are already touching your ham, and presumably wearing gloves for hygiene, so what's the big deal? I can't imagine many deli workers have enough time to go around folding ham slices over serving customers and their other work.

My theatre has that solved, the popper is a steel unit over a huge glass bin with presumably a steel base with a heater in it. You could almost loose a kid in there, ballpit-style. They just keep adding kernels as they take out the popped corn.

I do this with conferences. I tell my supervisor not to bother spending several thousand to fly me somewhere for a few days, expensive accommodation and expenses etc, when I could... just read all the presentations in half an hour.

Good idea TV. This happens so often it makes me think it's some kind of deliberate mental illness thing.

*raises hand* I am a 'you too' offender, sorry. The scene I hate is where you ask how they're going and there's this uncomfortable silence. That's why I don't often ask it. Your life might be hell but I don't want you to lie and tell me it's 'okay'; and if you tell me the truth about it sucking there's not much I can do to help. If you ask me that question, I'll give you (an edited version of) the truth. Most people can't handle that. So I prefer to avoid the whole issue by avoiding the question. (Is this aspie behaviour? Maybe I am part-aspie...)

I have seen this on soooo many mobile games, and even some PC ones. Paywalls and gates, pay to win (or even play), tapered effectiveness or time limits, 'unlockable features' like being able to trade or talk with other players ; the market is a cesspit of vipers. It's basically like street performances. Enjoy the show and feel free to throw in some change if you can spare it, but don't take it too seriously.

This one mystified me, but I reckon TT has nailed it. A potential (or successful) lawsuit would explain this neatly. A management shortcut. Example: My work's building roof was used by staff for lunches, socialising and getting a breath of fresh air on break, we have a great view across the city, and the cleanest air in the inhabited world. But it is defective and leaks/asbestos tiles, far too expensive to fix, so the workaround was to build another sealing roof on top. This meant that handrails around the rooftop are far below code now, and present a real tripping hazard (and falling face first down ten stories). If you thought the solution was to fix the railing and let staff continue to enjoy the facility, even inside a contained fenced area... ahahahah! In true management style all access to the roof is now permanently banned because "it's too dangerous." Which is a shame, because this is what it looks like up there: (not my actual building, but on same street) https://exp.cdn-hotels.com/hotels/5000000/4690000/4687400/4687342/de2cc2e2_z.jpg

Metro male checking in. Most of the male-only products are pretty rubbish. I actually prefer the female Dove/Nivea stuff, although Natio is not too bad. LOreal is overpriced rubbish. The only problem with female stuff is a lot of it is super-perfumed, and some is designed for 'gentle dainty princess' skin and just won't cut grease and grime.

The amount of people that insist on periodically (not accident at all) filthying up changerooms with blood, urine or feces is truly disturbing. What is wrong with people?

Yeah screw that guy. What does he think he's doing turning up ten minutes late and working unpaid for two hours. Pfft, casuals.

Guess who had a fragile little ego and was bitter about getting old and feeble? People need to chill out. Yeah, I'm a big beefy guy and stronger than a lot of women, sure. Doesn't mean I'm dumb enough to step into the ring with a female MMA champion or race against a woman who's a competitive cyclist and think I have a chance. It certainly doesn't make me 'better' in any way than anyone, just different. There's always someone faster, stronger, smarter or just more determined than you. Once you realise that and accept it, you're on the path to peace.

Am part German, is gut. :) I've spoken to a few cleaners, what you pay for is usually day-to-day cleaning you don't have time for as Basement Rat mentioned at the beginning: put dishes in dishwasher, tidy up, dust, put rubbish in bin, dirty clothes in hamper, ordinary stuff. This _other_ stuff that's specialist cleaning company work.

Good thing she wasn't any smarter or she might have gone for damage, medical assistance and loss of income due to the 'injuries' she sustained under her car. These guys should know their liability and she should have been escorted firmly out of the repair bay or the police called.

Manager dun goofed, he appeased one useless customer and annoyed all the rest in the room who had to put up with her BS. He lost way more trade than he earned.

That's full Whisky Tango Foxtrot, I can't believe you would do that. I've helped uni lads out with cleaning up when moving out and it was not fun at all (pots not cleaned or even emptied after cooking, just shoved in a cupboard for 6+ months, mounds (thousands) of used tissues under a bed (best not to examine too closely)) but this is just insane. I'd be charging $1000 an hour or part thereof, that is epic levels of crap. I'd suggest hazmat teams might be required!

Just waiting for the sequel angry custy story where they run a rampage at the servo saying "YOU GAVE ME THESE TICKETS BUT I DIDN'T WIN ANYTHING - I WANT A REFUND!" Sounds about right given the levels of arrogance and stupidity often shown here.

The sad part of this is that if someone rolls someone for $100 in their wallet, the cops will be all over it, that guy will be jacked up and locked away in jail. Stealing $1500 of merch? "Meh, fuggedabodit"

Do we have an awesome manager award for RHU? This one deserves it!

Yet another mouthbreather who doesn't realise that if they treated staff like actual human beings, nice things might happen for them. "As you sow, so shall you reap." I just hope they don't own pets or have kids. They're obviously not qualified to bring anything up.
