General FML moments

Recommended Posts

I was doing some snooping around the other day and I stumbled upon a book detailing the industrial history of Bratislava. That is something I'd very much like to read on in detail, but the book in question is out of print, out of stock, and not a single antiques shop I know of has it :(

My dad bought a ~1 kg-box of TGI Friday's-branded Cheddar & Bacon Loaded Potato Skins from the grocery store some days back. Today I baked the whole package in my countertop oven but turned on the convection fan... and you probably can figure out how they turned out.

A mix of FML and FY today.

I normally have lunch at Badass Jacks on Saturdays before I visit mom in the nursing home. So I get to Badass Jacks and they are closed (FML). Anyhow, the owner was sitting in his car so he motioned me over.  He said the building had no gas, so consequently no heat and no stove. He knew I would have to wait 1/2 an hour for the next bus so he gave me a ride to moms (FY). As a result I was early and mom was still asleep, so I waited half an hour in the TV lounge for her. Turns out she was not having a good day and was in a foul mood (FML). I know when she is like that I just let her be so I left after about 10-15 minutes. I was so upset with her that I almost nearly left my backpack there (FML). Fortunately I had just gotten to the door when I realized it was not on my back and I returned to retrieve it. Thank goodness it was intact (FY). Then I got to Jasper Place Transit Center with enough time to spare to run into Ben's Meat and Deli, get some cheese for sandwiches, run out and caught my route 7 with about a minute to spare (FY).

My stupidity knows no limits. A friend of mine on Facebook sent me a message with the comment "Is this your video"? Now, naively I thought something I had done was put up on the college's website or something, so I clicked on it, then clicked a second link there to be redirected to a login page, at which point I bailed. At this point she messaged me back saying this was a virus and that I should do a check on my phone, which I of course did, but I'm paranoid that the damage has already been done. My phone's behaving normally so far so hopefully I'm wrong as usual, but fuck. What a moron I am :(

Don't feel bad. These viruses are becoming more and more clever. What I don't get is what do these people that create these viruses hope to gain from all this ??? Don't they have anything better to do??? What a pathetic waste of skin these people must be that they get their jollies from such childish pranks.

That's what they do for fun. There's a new one going around that will keep asking you for administrator permissions, then Bitcoin mine on your phone until it overheats and burns itself out.

That virus comes in through either ads or downloading stuff from the Play Store.

I don't have any of that on my phone. I just use it for texting. (It's not a flip phone, but people still laugh at it). Everything else I do is on the computer. I don't download anything unless I get approval from my 'techie'. I always ask him and if I need something he will send me a link which I can trust.

Yeah, my phone is pretty safe from all that stuff. I'm glad too because I don't think I could handle all that nonsense.

I woke up from my sleep screaming at the top of my lungs tonight. I think I was beginning to drift out of consciousness when I have a vague recollection of seeing a hand floating over my bed, when apparently I sat up and began screaming and woke up the whole house.

Fun times. :(

I haven't played an online game in a long time (close to 3-4 years I suppose), but today I stumbled upon this one on beno.org.uk and it at once became addicting trying to get the highest score possible. I ended up playing for three hours straight without going anywhere else, and the only thing I got from it were scores in the thousands (3669 in normal mode, 2931 in extreme mode) and a pair of high-res screenshots to prove it. That being said, I'll try not to play another game again, but it'll probably be hard.

A little bit on the naughty side.... 

That time after doing a number 2 and the toliet gets clogged when you flush :facepalm:

I grab the plunger and surprisingly the stick comes right out from the suction cup; giving me a big painful jab into my chest.

I gave up and called Mr. Rooter

My son was the world champ at doing that.  The Latin term is called Crapis Colossus.  I got him trained to flush halfway during his evacuation.

I'm going back to school tomorrow. Not excited!

For the past semester, I've been gone for medical reasons. As a result, I either have to do summer school, do required courses next year that are one grade below my level, or just go all out and do as many courses during this semester as possible. The last option will be stressful, but it's better than the other options.

My computer's been constantly failing since the start of the new year, and I believe it's because of an issue with my hard drive. I've been getting bluescreens and black screens with the error "The boot disk or drive is missing or has failed." Today it got even worse, when a major system file corrupted. I'm hoping that I'll be able to retire this piece of junk soon.

Similarly, my Dell Precision laptop (which I purchased from UOIT for a buck) is not showing the PIN or picture sign-in options on the sign-in screen, even though Settings shows that they are both set up properly. Also, if I turn on fast start-up from Control Panel/Power Options, the sign-in screen doesn't even appear when I dismiss the lock screen when I boot my PC. Tried contacting Geek Squad, they wouldn't help cause I ain't paid for a membership. Also tried Microsoft chat support, wait takes forever. Don't know where to take my PC to get fixed.

Had fun trying to get into the condo today. Power was out for several blocks around the building and the door fobs wouldn't work.  The one lady I know in the building wasn't home to come downstairs to let me in. Eventually I went around to another set of doors and someone else waiting to get in phoned her room mate, so she came downstairs to let us in. I am very grateful I wasn't in the elevator when the power went out.. What would we do without cell phones in instances like this... ???

I had waited until the afternoon to clear the driveway of snow. Less than an hour after I finished, it's started snowing again.

So, last month Rogers sent me a text saying they were going to deduct $10.00 off my account and switch me to a new plan (which I didn't want and did not consent to) starting on Feb. 07, 2018. I called their line three times and spoke to three different representatives telling them I wanted to stick with my current plan and that I didn't want this new plan.  All three of them promised me I could stay with my current plan and not to worry - that they put a 'note on my file'.  Well, I happen to know that plan deductions just go automatically and that putting a note on my file is not going to help because their automated system doesn't read people's files. 

So, guess what happened today?!?!?!  (Continued in the FY thread).

Earlier today my dad knocked off the passenger side mirror on our car in a fluke incident.  To make matters worse, my schedule is pretty full for the next couple weeks so I don't know when to get it fixed.

Got my asshole handed to me on a silver platter yesterday, in the form of getting handed back brutal calc test. Class avg was a 50 in case anyone was curious. 

Which is good, because that means we're making progress from the last test's average, which was 47.
