Aw! You’re sweet. =]
I don’t want just a regular cat. I want a cat breed specifically fitting the characteristics I want in a furry companion.
I did a lot of research and I decided I’m going to get a ragdoll cat. They’re fluffy, but don’t require brushing every day. They’re playful, even up to their old age. They are okay with people picking them up, holding them and snuggling which is a must-have for any cat I’m to get. They’re really smart. But they cost anywhere between $350-1000 apiece.
And I’m already a grumpier person than most of the old people I meet.
I really was born in the wrong generation.
My own generation pisses me off like 60% of the time.
"BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE" IS NOT A SONG ABOUT RAPE.
I see something along these lines every day on Tumblr.
If there’s such a strong divide in core beliefs of Feminism, why in the world does every self-righteous Tumblr feminist feel that their beliefs and their opinions are the things a REAL feminist believes in?
We live in a generation that refuses to see the bigger picture of things, focusing on themselves as if the earth could not possible rotate around the sun if not for their own presence. Despite facts that refute bloated statistics many feminists throw around, they’re constant in their belief and anyone who thinks differently “Isn’t a true feminist.”
I instantly picture an adult person trying to argue a point but all that comes out of their mouth is a newborn’s cry. This has made it harder to take them seriously.
I like to imagine the patriarchy as being a council of 12 dudebros with golden fedoras sitting at a long table, feasting on Mountain Dew and Doritos while they talk about breaking out of the friendzone.
Because this seems to be so fucking difficult for people, it’s time I explained how to go through the checkout line.
1st. Eye your cart and where your groceries are placed. If you have more in the large section of the cart, get in front of your basket. If you have fewer items that are placed in the seat part of the cart, get behind the cart. Every day, I see so many people not pay attention to where they’ve placed the majority of their items and enter the checkout lane in a position that makes it almost impossible to unload their cart unless they back up and switch sides.
2nd. Unload your cart. The best way to do this is to keep similar items together, and place heavier or bigger items to the front. Try to keep items easily smashed items like bread or chips separated from groceries that can fall on them like heavy juice bottles or stacks of frozen pizzas. USE DIVIDERS. DO NOT WASTE TIME WAITING TO UNLOAD BECAUSE THE PERSON IN FRONT OF YOU IS STILL GETTING THEIR ITEMS RANG UP. USE THE FUCKING DIVIDERS.
3rd. Let the cashier do their job and ring up their items. Let the cashier initiate small talk. Do not be a dick to said cashier. They have to deal with a lot of ignorant people all day long and a nice customer(at least to me) can turn around a shitty day. A smile goes a long way, people.
4th. Pay for your groceries. If you’re paying in cash, don’t have it wadded up. Don’t throw it on the conveyor belt or check writing stand. If you have a lot of change, know how to fucking count change. If you have a bag full of coins, KNOW HOW MUCH YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU BRING IT IN AND DON’T GET ANGRY WHEN WE HAVE TO COUNT THE ENTIRE BAG BEFORE WE LET YOU GO. If you’re paying with EBT or Foodstamps or Debit, know how much fucking money you have on your card. Know your pin and how to use the machine. If you’re paying with check, have your ID ready, answer the questions the cashier asks you.
5th. Take your receipt and go home. Don’t linger to hit on the cashier or tell some weird story when they’re trying to ring up the next customer. Just don’t. It’s awkward.
I once got stuck behind an old lady at a gas pump for 20 minutes, because she could not figure out that she needed to leave the card in for just a split second longer. Every single time, had she left the card in for just that little bit longer.
Our card reader at work isn’t a touch screen and people get so pissed when I tell them they have to use the stylus. There’s also a sign on the machine telling people they have to use the pen. Guess how many people actually read it.
