    and I'm still annoyed, my 3rd email asking for money yesterday didn't spur a single one of the 4 to actually pay me.

    Been in your boat. What's helped me in the past is setting a hard deadline for payment. What they're all stalling for is because they don't want to fully commit yet. Totally dick, but that's what way too many people do these days. It's like they want to make sure nothing better comes up. SO annoying.

    Anyway, just say "I have to get everything paid for by [insert time] on [insert date] so you have to pay by then to ensure a spot. After that, you're free to come but you're on your own." That'll show you who REALLY wants to come. Every time I've done this, the people who were dilly-dallying didn't end up coming anyway, so glad I didn't waste the energy dealing with them trying to chase down deposits.

    Wow.

    On a scale of sad things for a grown ass man to do.. hosting a fantasy sports draft banquet is right up there with cosplay.

    And who the fuck are you to judge my judging.

    Driving around yesterday, there's a pick up in front of me with a big Confederate flag across the back window. One the bumper is a sticker: "The North Started Slavery and the South Abolished it! Re-read your History!" Underneath was a website that I couldn't make out.

    As a former history teacher, I can't imagine the mental gymnastics you'd have to do to come to that conclusion and make a website dedicated to it.

    Oh, I knew that. But it’s annoying that they set the boundaries that way in 1836 (which no one in NM honored), and it’s also annoying that after more than 150 years they still think it’s cute to claim the old boundaries.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    Fine, then do you think he should take Russell Wilson or Pikachu in the 1st round?

    Well arenít you a judgey bitch Riser.

    edited to add a big fu to PNWBRIT as well if you think having a fantasy football draft is worse than cosplay, read below you piece of shit.

    The draft was at a casino, the fantasy football piece is an excuse to get 14 college buddies spread out across the country together in person once a year. It includes golf, gambling, cards, and all kinds of shenanigans.
    .

    Iím 100% sure Iíll get paid. Itís the chasing money part that annoys me. Iím probably better off actually waiting a week for it. If I had an extra $500 in my pocket I probably would have donated it to the casino.

    They probably figure they have to wait and deliver the handjobs in person.

    Oh, damn. That sucks. Time to go break some kneecaps, then. Need a mag to send over their goons to collect?

    Lowes.

    Washing machine craps out at weekend. Attempted fix/part didn't bring it back to life.

    Fuckit. Buy new one online for pick up at local store - they have 3 in stock. Get email that it's available for collection.

    Turn up at local store. They don't have my washing machine or any others. Order has been transferred to different store an hour away. Ask local store to call new store to confirm they do have one for me if I drive there. "Those guys never answer the phone, you're better off just waiting for an email to tell you it's ready for collection"...

    Well why didn't you say so? Who needs an excuse for all that? Sounds like fun, minus the fantasy football. If you had mentioned the real reason and left off the fantasy football, we wouldn't be discussing this at all. I am all for shenanigans, just not adult cosplay.

    Lowes did that shit to me, too. Thankfully for an item much smaller than a washing machine. They don't seem to understand that when people order online for pickup in store, the actual store in question is pretty damn important. They seem to think that it's perfectly ok to tell you that they have that item for pickup (but not tell you up front that it's at a different store or ask you if you're ok with the new store). And of course, they have no ability to transfer the item to the store you originally requested.
