    Yeah, it seems to me they're waiting for force majeure so their insurance kicks in, they've already postponed event registration.

    Got my refund in system credit so I'll be there whenever it comes back.

    To clarify, I asked for it in system credit, you can also get a cash refund less a $10 admin fee.

    There have been a few good W tee Effs this past few weeks but I've been a bit too busy to list them all.
    Here's one of the best from back in Easter - my parents got a chocolate rabbit for our kid and we decided to give it to her whole for a laugh.
    She liked it... at first.
    She was amused by it and decided to start by eating its nose off. Once she'd finished melting much of its face she had a look at what she'd done, and then recoiled in terror at the horrific image she created:
    horrorrabbit.jpg

    My wife managed to get a video, too. I'll need to see if i can upload it to YouTube.
    After that, she couldn't even look at the thing. I tried to hide it in our kitchen but she saw the ears and ran away.

    Ok, i head to bring my mother to the hospital for eye surgery, planned and a routine operation. So i think it will all going well.
    Now starts the wtf part.
    My mom is working at a hotel - restaurant in the kitchen. Mostly doing the dishes, cleaning and general maid for everything.
    Its more abit of extra allowance cause if she would work more it would cost here more of here pension than she would earn. (She is going to be 64 this year).
    Now she seems to be the only one doing some proper cleaning and willing to the dishes, as all worlkmates and her boss call me to ask how shes going and when she could come back to work.

    And no, they cant find someone else to hire, cause it seems noone is willing to do dishes / cleaning / work after 8 pm or at the weekends.

    Today my wife got very excited because she discovered that the button on the front of our ice maker turns it from cubed ice to crushed ice.

    We've only been living in this house (with this fridge freezer) for four years....

    I am more anoyed by my mothers boss. Not willing to find people cause it worked until now.
    Got the same at my work to much, too.
    But if you people working as a cook, but dont want to work at weekends and holidays when most people are willing to spend money at a restaurant and stuff like that. The Boss / owners should be glad that they donmt have to pay rent for the restaurant.

    Food is good and the rooms are clean and are rather cheap in this area, but finding someone willing to work for its money is a pain in the a**.

    I dont even go out to date someone here, as most woman still think, getting to kids and a divorce is enough to do for a living.
    They onyl learn that after the divorce that the laws have changed the last decade and now if you married under the new divorce laws the man has to support the woman a max of 3 years. (until the kid can go to pre school / kindergarden etc.) and they have still to work as a single mother.

    Learning how accurate the Prequel Trilogy was has been my WtF this week. I am waiting for the Dumpsterführer to declare himself President for Life or some shit. I can see all those Gadsden Flag idiots cheering him on and handing over their guns while deepthroating boots if he does.

    Yes, the ability of American Libertarians to make rapid 180 degree turns is astonishing.

    Two weeks ago the gubmint saying to stay inside was Fascist and you shouldn't obey. This week, stay inside and obey the nice jackboots.

    I very much for real saw someone I know who is definitely pro-Trump share a post of the Chinese fire hosing protesters in Hong Kong with dyed water so they can identify them later and one of his friends suggested that we do that here in the US. Like...this dude literally interchanges "socialists," "Liberals," and "communists" as if they mean the same thing and, in the same fucking breath, THINKS WE SHOULD BE DOING WHAT THE COMMUNIST CHINESE ARE DOING TO OPPRESS THE CITIZENS OF HONG KONG. Like...holy fucking shit, these people shouldn't be allowed to testify in their own defense in court.

    I would prefer to avoid any political discussion in this topic - no good can come of it.

    It was my Dad's birthday last month, as well as the usual selection of real ales I also got him a kilogram bag of jelly babies (that's 771.6 scruples for you Imperial folks).

    He's got a sweet tooth, but I figured that would last him a couple of weeks.

    Nope

    Just 3 days it took him to finish them, less the 4 that Mum ate.

    Yet he somehow remains a 175cm tall man (0.35 rods) with an 87cm waist (0.47 fathoms) at age 70!

    My wife sometimes laments that I take as long as I do while washing up.
    I like to be thorough, but she likes to get it done quickly.
    Just yesterday she decided to clean some pans when I said I would do them. She thought they shouldn't take too long so just got them done.

    The end result is that this morning I made a batch of pancakes which ended up tasting like Nando's garlic peri-peri sauce :/
