It made me fume, to say the least

Over the weekend, I went for a little drive just for fun, as I often do in the spring. My gas gauge was on “empty”, so I stopped at a nearby Turkey Hill to fuel up.

And boy did I regret it.

I pulled up to the first pump I saw, but it was out of order. Ok, fine. So I pulled around to the pump pictured above. It’s…seen better days, to say the least. The LCD screen has been knocked askew somehow, and the cheap red paneling they plastered over the old Exxon branding is starting to lift up. But hey, at least it works, right?

Wrong! The pump’s card readers refused to accept my Kroger Plus card or my Visa debit card. So I finally gave up and went inside to pay. The cashier scanned both the Kroger Plus cards I keep on hand, but for whatever reason the system simply would not accept them.

So what the hell was I supposed to do? I couldn’t, like, not put gas in my car! So I ended up paying full price (and the clerk had to run my card as debit, by the way, since it wouldn’t work as credit) even though I know I have fuel points on my Kroger card.

Get your shit together, Kroger, or I’m gonna stick to Speedway from now on.

Couple tshirt

Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000…). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey… you’re depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you’re fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you’ll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?


THIS EXISTS?

OMG

It’s like the “social” meter from The Sims except in real life!

why am i so much more feminine on the internet

I really dislike Tumblr’s obsession with calling everyone beautiful and perfect. Like, they clearly do not understand the meaning of these words. Even if by beautiful they’re on some “inner beauty” type shit kick, that’s not true, because a great many people are simply fucking vile. As for perfect… come on, if you say anyone is perfect, you need to stop and reevaluate yourself. Nobody is perfect. Nobody is even close. We all have flaws, we all have demons, and calling people perfect and telling them to ignore their flaws is just like… a gigantic recipe for stagnation. You don’t tell people that they’re perfect, you tell them that it’s possible to improve, and you help them do so. 

Like, if someone calls me perfect when they’re trying to cheer me up or encourage me, I just start tuning them out, because I know that isn’t true, and they’re basically just lying through their teeth to make me feel better.

I’ve always found it really patronizing, myself.

Like, every so often I see posts saying things like “In case nobody has told you today, you’re a brilliant and wonderful human being!”

And it’s like…it’d be one thing if someone who knew me wanted so say that…but if it’s just some blogger I’ve never met spouting vague positivity to whoever happens to read reblogged post #271828, it’s kind of, you know, meaningless. And almost insulting, since it seems to presume I would feel validated by such an empty statement.
