    Yeah this horks me every time too. If EVERY time I call over multiple years, you say “we’re experiencing higher than normal call volume” at what point does this new call volume become “normal”?

    I have a sneaking suspicion they’re fucking liars.

    It's time. Do you have time for this. WTF is a cycle? How is it measured? Do I have like 50 cycles a day? How many of these mysterious cycles will this particular task consume?

    My response is almost always "Yep. Just throw it on the pile, we'll get to it."
    So apparently ^ this has happened a bunch of times. What in the actual fuck? Who are these people? Certain age group? Do they look like Scientologists or something?

    $16 breakfast $4 tip. Not surprising to me that two tele skiers would think that's expensive, but that's what breakfast costs if you want more than a bowl of granola and a cup of herbal tea.
    As far as the ice cream goes it's not a question of cost, but a question of value. I can go to the store down the street and get a pint of much better ice cream for the same $5.

    Miguel Gonzalez wakes up just after 4 a.m. on most weekdays with one thing on his mind: avocados. In the past few years, Gonzalez, who lives in Long Island City, has become the private avocado dealer to dozens of New York City restaurants, from Michelin-starred spots (Daniel and Eleven Madison Park) to low-key brunch places (Sunday in Brooklyn). His avocados can end up in sixteen-dollar avocado-lettuce cups with toasted cumin at abcV, but his daily operations are decidedly no-frills; they start with him sitting on his sofa in the dark, his sons’ Nintendo games strewn about, planning the morning’s delivery routes in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.

    yeah, $20 breakfast sounds expensive to me, but breaking it down, a $12-13 plate (omelet or whatever) and a $3-4 cup of coffee, seems pretty standard at all but the greasiest of greasy spoons.

    $16 avocado lettuce cups? I can get a Papas Loco --which includes an avocado--and an excellent cup of pour over coffee for that.

    I am both glad and horrified that this is happening solely at my place of employment. Glad that you all don't have to experience this, yet horrified that I may be in some sort of weird work-cult or something.

    Another one that's popular here is "reach-out." Did you reach out to the client? Let me reach out to our engineering department. I'll reach out to Bob and see if he can help. Well I reached out last week and haven't heard anything.

    What is this!!! Did you CALL them? EMAIL? Go over and TALK to them? Every one of these things conveys a different importance of the message being delivered. I need to know what you did (or are about to do) specifically!

    People who stick their poles between their legs before boarding a chairlift. Apparently so they can save themselves the gigantic amount of effort required to slide them under a leg once seated. Then if somebody wants the bar down they exhale like it's a HUUUGGE inconvenience because now they need to re-situate their stupid poles. Stick that pole up your ass gaper.

    the funny thing about that is it's not gapers that do it, it's generally (from my observation) expert/experienced skiers that do it. It doesn't really annoy me, but I do kinda laugh at it, it feels to me like people do it to show how efficient they are at being an expert.

    Home fried potatoes jack cheese, black beans, jalapenos, avocados, salsa, flour tortilla, sour cream, and cilantro. And in perusing the menu to make sure I didn't leave anything out--new item, Dragon Potatoes which is the above plus carnitas.

    Orphan, in Sacramento. Open for B and L every day but xmas.
    My only complaint--they don't squeeze their orange juice, even though they roast their own coffee (and don't sell espresso drinks).

    As a geezer I do it simply to save time (wall at the end of the tunnel, and all) and avoid elbowing any one if I had to do it after sitting down. And I've never, ever had to re-situate my poles if the bar is lowered - you're doing it wrong.

    ....that I have been made aware that putting my poles between my legs before I get on the chair is a "thing".

    Don't be fooled. They're gapers trying to look cool and efficient.

    It's not the bar, it's the foot rests that seem to confound these ultra efficient pole sitters.

    Snicker at me on the chair for tucking my poles in, and I'll sneak in a bash to the back of your head with that bar.
    If I'm quick, I can probably get two good whacks in!

    Maybe we should start a thread on this. I don’t like fucking with my poles once the lift has left the station because it’s not that hard to drop one, especially if you’re leaning over to lift up one buttcheek. I like to have all my shit secure as I’m sitting down.

    Need to discuss the all important question of whether the poles should point left or right. And do you sit on the grips or the tips.

    Not sure WTF this new Wordle craze is but pretty sure I'd be good at it. I'm good at spelling, crosswords, sudoku and other such useless things.
    Things that are helpful in real life-not so much.
