Fucking great night. I went out to Harbor Freight to buy a tool. Found out the asshole manager I hated and left there because of quit, Warehouse Manager is now Assistant Store Manager, Head Cashier is now Warehouse Manager, and my old colleague is now Head Cashier (and I would have that job had I stayed with them a couple months longer than I did). Ashlee applied to be Store Manager and WASN’T EVEN INTERVIEWED.
And the ASM wants to buy my old Suzuki. And he wants to hire me for whatever shifts I’d like. Seriously considering going back to work Sunday mornings.
Oh, and the tool I needed? A swingarm stand. Not only was it normally cheaper than what I can get from the catalogues at my new job, but my Head Cashier friend accidentally had it marked down 45% and was like fuck it take it, this didn’t happen.
“The department heads, they are saying to me, ‘You shall not make advertisements in lecture.’ But they are not yet saying, ‘You shall not bring weapons to lecture’ So, we have this blowgun.”—Calculus professor, who then proceeded to hit our makeshift bull’s-eye with the blowgun five times in a row and shout “Fuck your probability distribution!”
So, I don’t have the tools or the skill to do the chain and sprocket by myself and I’m feeling really down about that. I’m gonna get some turn signals for my bike next week and take it to a shop and have tires, chain, and fork seals all done at once. Stuck on my little Suzuki until then :(
Got my Triumph tagged, and rode it about 20 miles yesterday. The chain is bad, so I’m going to replace it today. Problem is my rear sprocket hasn’t come in the mail. I ordered a really good sprocket 3 up from stock. I have one already, but it’s a cheap one and it’s 6 up and I don’t really want a stunting bike… >_>
“Plus in therapy when you talk about triggers in a non-PTSD sense, the goal is to identify them so you can learn to deal with them, not so you can avoid them completely and definitely not so you can demand that other people do the same.”
This how you handle Trigger Warnings and not Tumblr’s annoying way of tagging them or asking for them to be tagged
Did the coolant in my bike this evening. Hopefully I’ll get my rear sprocket in the mail tomorrow and I’ll get to do chain and sprocket, brake fluid, and maybe air filter this week. Getting it tagged on Wednesday and taking it to St Aug for the weekend to see friends, excited!
don’t you DARE make this about yourself or how you hate when people blame “all white people” for “the actions of a few corrupt cops”
this is not about you THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU DO YOU HEAR ME THIS IS NOT ABOUT WHITE PEOPLE
do you fucking understand me share all the shit you can to make noise about what’s going on but THIS IS NOT YOUR TIME TO GIVE SOME LENGTHY OPINION ABOUT HOW YOU HATE COPS WHEN YOUR LIFE IS NOT LITERALLY THREATENED BY OUR RACIST CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM EVERY DAY. THIS IS NOT YOUR TIME TO “SYMPATHIZE” WITH BLACK POCS ON HOW YOU LOVE TO JUST SAY “FUCK THE POLICE” TOO. THIS IS NOT SOME CUTE TREND.
THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH AND THIS IS ABOUT ANTI BLACK RACISM AND IT IS NOT ABOUT YOU. DO NOT SPEAK OVER ANYONE.
i think it’s important that myself and other white ppl remember that we can not even begin to truly understand the pain and trauma of what is happening in ferguson, nor can we grasp the anger and sadness black communities experience due to this situation. all we can do is stand in solidarity, listen, and not derail or take the focus away from the true face of racism and white supremacy.
Dropped 200$ on parts for my bike. Mounting hardware for the flyscreen (Triumph naked bikes eyy) and sprockets and chain. And I ordered the air filter earlier this week. Back to broke but the bike is actually getting fixed!
