    Venting time: So a couple weeks ago someone commissioned me for a couple graphics worth $30 altogether. I get it done and it turns out that their financial situation is weird and they can't pay right away, a little weird but no biggie, I'll just hold the files until they can. So I messaged them while on vacation last week and they said they should be able to get it to me this week, ok great no problem. Well I just DMed them asking for an update a few minutes ago and they got a $200 speeding ticket.

    Fuck me I guess.

    The real kick in the nuts is that I initially didn't have a problem with it, like yeah I got impatient but at the end of the day I knew I would eventually be paid even if it took a couple weeks. Now I can't even begin to think when I'll get the money.
    Yeah, you think that would be something you would make sure of before you even think about commissioning somebody. According to their friend they contacted me through he really rushed into streaming, but still, come on man.

    Thirty bucks? Like you have to be food stamps poor not to be able to have like 30 spare bucks. Especially if you ask for something, you'd better know you have it. But I guess that's just like common sense or something.

    My car got broken into this morning. The store I was parked in had video, and my local precinct said they'll investigate.

    I watched the video with them. Guy in hoodie, probably Caucasian (or just very light-skinned) in a hoodie and track pants.

    I was REALLY surprised how short it took these particular officers to find somebody. So, they bring somebody in and...it's a black dude. Definitely the wrong height and skin color. I rewatch the video with them and they let the guy go (he was pissed off, understandably) and brought in this white guy who was CLEARLY too fat to be the guy on video. This guy also had a beard and it appeared on the video that the perpetrator did not. I'm just annoyed now, my girlfriend joins me and we just sit there for hours because they kept saying they were close.

    They did find the guy. I got home about an hour and a half ago, but god damn. They just kept getting in their own way.

    My kids' school opted to stay open during an active Tropical Storm Warning.
    I opted not to be stupid and kept em home.
    School is trying to tell parents it will count against them.

    All I told them was 'good luck with that'.

    Wouldn't be the first time I fought a school and won. Maybe I should go for the superintendents job, I do need a hobby after all....

    An update on that: I got on the social media account for my kids' school district, advising that parents call the Superintendent, pressure him to wave absences entirely, and that if he didn't, to start calling the state Superintendent and/or our House representative.

    Within 30 minutes of me posting that, I get a call from my kids' superintendent, who explained the matter over the course of our half hour phone call (evidently someone in his office put a note on his desk that he should call me ASAP). Net result: my kids' absence is waived entirely, no questions asked. Although he did insinuate I should call him directly (I assume that means to stop making him look bad on social media and whipping people up lol).

    So yeah, sometimes it just takes an irate (but professional) parent to rectify situations.

    Too bad you weren't in Brooklyn. Could've had the 99 with Detective Jake Peralta go investigate. :p

    But damn, sucks that you got your car broken into and such, but I'm glad they caught the guy. I don't think I can agree with burtonbraves any more - you do lead such an interesting life, lol. Always got some kinda cool story.

    Sounds a bit like where I live, where roads can be practically impassable due to snow and all the schools stay open anyway. Lol

    Here in CT, if we get three inches of snow they close up the schools. You should see all of the angry parents on my local towns Facebook page lol.

    Hey, guys. So, I know a lot of you are pretty tech savvy, and I was just wondering if one of you guys could help me out. I’m pretty good with computers myself, but there’s some things that are just out of my league. Anyway, I’m having a problem with my audio driver. It hasn’t worked all day, though I’ve been on the web searching like crazy and have restarted the thing several times. Please, I’m begging you, id any of you can help, please shoot me a PM. I’ve kinda gotten myself worried sick over this mess! lol

    EDIT: Nevermind, I got it fixed! :D

    Seeing how the impacts were going to be winding down in one area versus worsening for the other, before and during school hours, I can understand why one was closed and the other wasn't.. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    bvc. 3 inches. If you lived in England the whole country panics over 1/2 inch.
    It is pathetic.

    We have never closed down due to rain or anything like that, not that we probably ever will. (I live in the prairies).

    Our school division has only ever closed down only about 3 times in the winter from what I can remember, from the time I was in kindergarten to the time I graduated. We could have blizzards and snowstorms and stuff and they still kept the schools open. We'd have have about 3, sometimes 4 feet of snow. While they kept the schools open, rarely did we have more than 6 to 10 kids in my middle school classes and while we had 1200+ in the high school, only about 50 to 100 showed up in total.
