Alrighty … I’m officially back on the blogosphere radar … and what better way to do it than to start off with a nice healthy rant :-). I mean, that is why I keep this around anyway right?
First up, I want to apologize to all the girls everywhere. I have been provided a brief glimpse into your world and I can completely sympathize with your situation … the people who make girls shoes suck! Dear lord do they ever suck. I swear, I think Sara and I have spent about 6 hours of our lives (that would be 12 hours collectively or 24.9 hours perceptively) trying to find new shoes for her at work. I can’t even count the number of places that we went trying to find some shoes that fit, didn’t look like they came out of the 1920’s, and looked somewhat stylish. To the engineer, this doesn’t seem like it would be that difficult of a task being as they sell shoes EVERYWHERE; however, after finally looking at women’s shoes, it be an understatement to say that 80% of the ones in the store blow banana chunks on a good day. So people who make the crappy shoes YOU SUCK! And to the girls that find ones that are sexy/stylish, carry on … just keep it under 20 pair per household.
Speaking of households, the wonderful people at the Sears company are going to get a nasty phone call tomorrow. I have had my card for at least 4 years and I don’t think there has been one year that they have actually billed me correctly. I got this bill last month for $75.00 on my 12 months same as cash 0% interest washer/dryer. Why? No one seems to know, but I have to pay it otherwise they’ll take my 12 month 0% away. That’s crap. I swear, as soon as American Express gives me another set of those 1.99% interest for 12 months deals, I’m going to tell Sears to cram it up the skinniest hole in their ass because I’d rather pay American Express than a bunch of fscking retards that can’t even get my bills right.
And of paying bills, I’m ready to thwack the guy who’s been working on my bike … apparently it’s “done” now. It’s going to cost me $400 more than it was originally as well as it’s not 100% fixed because the guy didn’t quite do what he said he was going to. Don’t get me wrong, I trust the guy did good work on what he did, and I’m sure all that he did really needed to be done because the bike was in rough shape … but it irks me a little that he fixed stuff that I could have done myself. Since this venture has cost more than I really wanted it, that stupid ass bike is going on eBay. Send the link any of your enemies and tell them it’s a good deal, I’ll slide some your way.
Well, it’s not a ton of rant, but I didn’t want to melt your eyes after not seeing a rant for a long time. OH that reminds me … the people who wrote the API to OpenSSL … you need to be beaten for making 30 different ways to do the same damned thing. To all the people who write OpenSSL “tutorials” (and I use that extremely lightly), you all fscking suck donkey turd splats. You use SSL_shutdown(SSL *object) and not SSL_free(SSL *object) you dumb ass jerks! I swear, if I could get back 1 minute of the 160 I spent figuring that out, I would hunt you down and beat you with the pointy end of the ‘1’. Ok, I’m done. Stay tuned for more :-).
