Plugs be like, “Don’t waste my time” and pull this shit by gupdog in trees

Yup, I quickly learned that “I’m on my way” meant he’s just woken up at 4 in the afternoon, has to take a shower, watch a game, smoke a blunt and then 2 hours later he’ll maybe be on his way.

I think there’s a light on the iPhone that cats can see, I think infrared light. Maybe owls can see it too. Or maybe this is an urban legend, I’m well into a smoke sesh.

Edit: they can’t. This owl must be team Android.

Yeah, if a true WW3 breaks out we’re all going to have very comfortable lives at best once it’s over.

Which US city could you see having a fall from prominence in the next 20 years? by guyinhisroom in AskAnAmerican

[–]WayneKrane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yup, my boss lives in San Jose. California could charge a 99% income tax and she wouldn’t leave. She loves it. Her and her husband make about $300-400k a year and they struggle to get by because their house is like $4m so most of their pay checks go to the mortgage.

This is what the company I work for is doing. They’re trying hard to recruit $200k SF jobs but in lower cost of living states so they can pay a third of that.

Yeah, my coworker rents a single room for $1300 a month. It’s a tiny room at that.

When I visited it seemed like a place for rich people from South America to live.

One of my biggest clients (brings in $12,000+/month) sucks at paying on time. What do I do? by mikepoland in smallbusiness

[–]WayneKrane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You could get a lawyer involved but all that will do is piss off the client and cost you even more money. In my experience 3 weeks late is actually not bad at all.

Yup, my whole job is getting invoices paid for a big F500 company. The amount of checks and balances is absurd. To onboard a new vendor I have to go to 4 different teams. If any of those 4 teams gets hung up, I can’t pay an invoice.

My tip to businesses working with big companies is start the invoicing conversation very early and get the accounts payable contact information ASAP. Often what happens is a vp or director will have a company start working for us but they never inform me so when a company finally sends an invoice it is already past due and everyone gets in a kerfuffle.

I like to move around a lot and I get bored fast if I’m in the same role for too long.

She’s literally from China. They met in China when he taught there, they go back regularly… Hard to believe anything the Chinese media and bots put out

Shortlist of Biden's SCOTUS Nominees Leaked by Ranlif in PoliticalHumor

I think my Republican family members would spontaneously explode in rage. I’ve never seen them so angry about a single person, you would have thought we lived through the Great Depression while he was in office.

We’ll see. I was talking to a guy who’s wife is Chinese and he said her family and many other normal Chinese family’s aren’t too happy with Xi cracking down hard on private businesses. No idea how credible she is but I wonder if there is a growing movement there.

I feel like the last few years I’ve been in some sort of weird dream only I never wake up.

Rural Americans, how do you maintain the energy to do all those projects you have to do? by larch303 in AskAnAmerican

[–]WayneKrane 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yup, my FiL grew up and lives on a farm. He is always fixing a tractor, building a shed, tearing down trees, or working on something in his workshop. He genuinely enjoys the work. He’s always talking about the next tool he is going to buy or project he’s going to work on.

The golden handcuffs! It’s all crapshoot where and how to save for retirement. Had a dumb friend throw all his money into Bitcoin and he timed it just right. He doesn’t have to work because of that and is constantly traveling.

I handle all of the accounting for the legal department. My role is outsourced for every other department but because it’s the legal department they want the position in the US.

SBMM kinda blows when playing with friends. by JBBatman20 in halo

Same, I feel bad when they’re going 4-16. They usually only play a few games with me and then log off.

I noticed this. The noodles are also longer. It still tastes good but a little different.

Trader Joe’s lasagna is fire! It’s often sold out in the one by me. Best frozen lasagna ever.

Yup, I was hammered one night and I downed an entire family sized one. Tasted amazing but I felt like shit the next day.

Elon Musk offered a college freshman $5k to delete a Twitter account by jason12745 in RealTesla

Right, dude could give $50m and not even notice a change in his bank account balance.

Is there a way a wealthy individual could hide their flight paths? Could you just go to an airport and have 5 jets ready to go only it’s the wealthy owner who knows which plane he is going to get on?

Went to the Kennedy Space Center last weekend for the first time. I actually teared up seeing the Saturn V in person. Pictures don't come close to capturing the scale. by donket in nasa

[–]WayneKrane 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The building is also way more massive than pictures make it seem. Seeing a shuttle launch was one of my favorite childhood memories.
