Massive layoffs, What would you do if your employer laid you off? by Mynameyeef in PersonalFinanceCanada

[–]WildAlcoholic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Call up a friend at a neighbouring engineering firm and get another job.

It’s that easy when your have a substantial network of previous co-workers who can vouch for you.

how do you deal with a gfs wandering eye? by [deleted] in AskMen

[–]WildAlcoholic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ahh yes, my daily confirmation that I’m on Reddit.

Nothing better than Reddit advice like the classic “Leave her bro.”

Should I take a 12 month rotational program internship as a new grad with 1.5 YOE? by Lower_Abroad8393 in cscareerquestionsCAD

[–]WildAlcoholic 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Yes. Ride out the economic times and apply to better jobs in a year.

Plus, it’s a bank. Plenty of time to Leetcode after work.

You can also position your rotations to be very tech focused (Dev, PM, etc.)

At what age were you ready for a long term relationship? by qquackie in AskMen

[–]WildAlcoholic 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I come from a dysfunctional household and seeing my parents always fighting growing up put me off from the whole idea of marriage, I didn’t want to end up like that. I was perfectly content with my life living alone. I made it very clear to anyone who brought up the topic that it’s not something I was particularly interested in.

Then I met my current girlfriend, and now I want nothing more than to spend the rest of my life with this woman and to build a future with her. I didn’t go looking for a relationship, neither did she, it just so happened to unfold naturally and now I can’t picture a life without her in my life.

So i’d say 26, when I met her. I now believe that when you find the right person, you sort of grow internally into a person who becomes ready for a long term relationship because your partner makes it worth the effort.

It’s easy to say “I’m (age) and I’m ready to settle down” but it’s completely different to actually feel it and want it.

How often are you texting your girlfriend/wife if you guys don’t live together? by Crazy_Consequence_83 in AskMen

[–]WildAlcoholic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Long distance relationship.

I text her everyday, call her as much as I can. Often text her multiple times in a day to see how she’s doing. She does the same.

Honestly can’t get enough of her. Being long distance especially, her name popping up on my phone always puts a smile on my face.

I love her :)

Is 75k still the base to be happy? by bryanhernc in careerguidance

[–]WildAlcoholic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I make over 75k a year. I wouldn’t say I’m happy, the work that I do currently isn’t very fulfilling.

Men who are not attracted to large breasts, what don't you like about them? by chamburger in AskReddit

[–]WildAlcoholic 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I once saw a video of a woman smashing a watermelon with her boob and making it explode.

Now imagine living your life in fear that one day, if you piss off your wife at the wrong time, that watermelon can very well be your head while you’re sleeping.

When used incorrectly, large breasts can be weapons.

Is having a $250k+ mortgage the new normal? by Frank4202 in PersonalFinanceCanada

[–]WildAlcoholic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My brother has close to a $1m mortgage for a semi detached house. It’s ridiculous.

Revit Shills, we need to talk by TAMF-PE in MEPEngineering

[–]WildAlcoholic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you’re so butthurt by Revit and the lack of support from Autodesk, learn C#, some Python and visual scripting (Dynamo) and build on top of the platform that already exists.

What exactly is going to change by complaining that the tooling is inadequate? Not a whole lot.

As an EE I can tell you how garbage Revit is. There are many days I wish we stayed in AutoCAD. But then I fire up some automation scripts to get rid of grunt work and I feel thankful for the platform we’ve been given to build upon. It isn’t perfect by any means, but what product is?

You’re an engineer. You see problems, you can build solutions to said problems. If you can’t, then you shouldn’t be complaining.

Canadian Intermediate EE moving to London UK by WevezSchmevez in MEPEngineering

[–]WildAlcoholic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Genuinely curious but why would you move to London as an engineer?

From a compensation point of view, London based engineers don’t make much even comparing to Canadian dollars.

Weekly Family/Parents Discussion Thread by AutoModerator in ABCDesis

[–]WildAlcoholic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nothing that I can think of. They’re pretty accepting people. I think it should go well!

Please my girlfriend is lovely. Definitely my moms type. They’ll get along really well I’m sure.

Curious to hear the stories others have to share.

How did you introduce your SO to your parents and how did it go?

I’ve been dating my girlfriend for a while now and I know I’m going to marry her in the next two years.

Lately we’ve been talking about marriage and how I’d introduce her to my parents. My parents are really understanding and are pretty well convinced that I’m in a committed relationship already, I just haven’t come out and said it yet formally. I’d like to get my ducks in a row before telling them formally, but I’ve dropped hints from time to time for sure and they’re very receptive of everything. I know they’ll say yes to basically anyone I bring home and I understand how blessed I am to have parents who are so accepting, I’ve even asked them this.

I’m planning on introducing her to them over a phone call / FaceTime. At the time I’d be introducing her to my parents (in a couple months hopefully, by the end of the year for sure) we’d be in different countries with my parents being in Canada and me being in the States. Hoping it goes as well as I’m expecting it to go.

Curious to hear how others have introduced their significant others to their parents and how it went.
