    The Ricer Boy Chronicles, Part Herp le Derp

    Many of you will have seen my posts on my co"worker" Ricer Boy. I've mentioned how he knows less than nothing about cars and thinks his Mazda 626 can outrun anything. I haven't mentioned, but have hinted, that he's also really freaking annoying to work with. Not only is he immature and lowbrow as can be, once he picked up on the fact that I'm a homeschooled runt, he started repeatedly body blocking me, trying to trip me, and throwing fakeout punches to try to get me to flinch. Then, after this constant obstruction of my attempts to do useful things, he has the gall to say I'm slow and have a bad work ethic.

    Fast forward to earlier today. I'm in the middle of my third "why did I even get out of bed" day in a row, I've just missed the DMV's closing (only the government could get away with closing at 4:30PM on a weekday), and I'm stopping in at CrazyBurger to see if I work Monday (because my driver's license expires Tuesday). Not only are the schedules for Monday not ready, Big Boss ambushes me and asks me if I can go home, get my uniform, and punch in. Grudgingly, I say yes. Sergeant Schedule then tries to get me to come in tomorrow; I fight this tooth and nail (verbally of course, I'd lose if it was a physical confrontation), because it's not every week you luck into a Saturday off, and I do eventually succeed in keeping that day off. Well, the schedules that are there are posted in the cleaning-supplies alcove, so as I'm grabbing a broom and dustpan later on, I glance at tomorrow's... and it looks like Ricer Boy got himself sacked. Or suspended, but that pretty much means "done as dinner but it's not official yet." Based on my own experiences and what I've overheard, it's likely to be flagrant stupidity, wanton obstruction of productivity, and at least one no call no show (not that the way NCNS is handled here - if you call less than two hours before your shift starts, it's an NCNS, regardless of why - isn't BS). Aha, so that's why I'm suddenly in demand!

    On one hand, this makes me want to laugh more than it probably should, since he was always calling me slow and saying things like "Want some advice? Don't get fired!", but it looks like he should have listened to himself. On the other hand, even in leaving, this guy finds a way to drive me nuts.

    And since I forgot to ask about Monday after that, I now have to get up tomorrow morning at 9 or 10 (when I was planning to sleep in until 11AM or later) and call to make sure Sergeant Schedule knows why I was so worried about Monday, since the way I was asking about it before he probably thinks I wanted to work that day or something (note: Monday and Tuesday are my usual days off, and I'd be working Friday and Saturday anyway if it weren't for a corporate inspection throwing everything off), at which point I'll probably have to argue about coming in tomorrow all over again.

    Drove stick for the first time today. Didn't end well. I stalled my friends damn Pulsar every time I stopped it. Don't even get me started on the parking job... Still gives me Vietnam flashbacks

    I work at a burger joint that we'll call CrazyBurger for purposes of me not getting fired if one of my bosses happens to take an interest in BeamNG.Drive.

    Overwhelming majority of the time I'm a cashier. Ricer Boy can run a register but he's usually on the drive-thru, not front counter.

    Temps have been dipping low enough I figured I'd treat myself to some hot cocoa; forgot how it tastes without peppermint schnapps... and I don't like it.

    Did a 24 hour game jam this weekend. Made a version of Pong for the GameBoy Advance in less than 24kb fully compiled [math.h is the majority of that]. Also got to spend a good 15-20 mins playing with the HTC Vive as part of that event too. Tilt Brush, Robot Repair, Job Simulator, they are all absolutely awesome.

    Yes, I do. Logistics & Supply Chain Management. Do I like it... eh, it has its moments, but it also has moments that make me rage so hard, my brain starts turning into lava.

    Also. That moment. When someone hands you money. And it's wet. BLEEEUUUURRRRGH

    Take it apart and clean it. You can't really mess it up any further.

    Earlier I got a spork at a fast food place but had no need for it so I brought it home. I've been looking at it.
    I noticed it has these two little fin things on the two innermost prongs. As far as I can tell, they exist to space the point of the prongs from whatever you're scooping off of, preventing you from stabbing into it if it's something soft like styrofoam or paper. They also give a smooth surface for the spork to slide on.


    Man, what a time to be alive.

    They will be to prevent them from snapping off. For example if you are trying to use it to eat ice cream those two prongs need to be able to support a large force. On a normal spoon this is not such a big problem because of the inherently strong convex/concave shape, however once you remove the bits where the gaps are (on the spork) the remaining sections are no longer supported by the convex shape and are likely to snap. Hence they added the supports underside to reinforce them.

    Similar to how a flat sheet of paper is far more bendy than one folded into the shape of a paper plane chassis.
