  • I'm honestly starting to get fed up with how consistently lazy most of the younger waitresses are at work, especially when I've repeatedly came in the next morning and it looks like a bomb went off. When they're not waiting on tables, they just play on their phones. I'm starting to think the manager in charge of them may not put her foot down and make them take initiative.

    Like most jobs and other things, social media is the modern individuals* way to retreat from not being perfect and ends up being a retreat that just brings more laziness and a lack of effort.

    * I say individual sarcastically as most people are slaves to other people's opinions and social media is just a stream of judgment.

    While I have my fair share of flaws there as well (I inadvertently got into a small argument with my boss yesterday), the reason why I don't play on my phone is A) I'm always finding something to do, and B) I have a very basic flip phone that doesn't have social media on it, nor does it allow me download anything. Sure, I can still access the web on it, but it's not the same as me doing so on my laptop.

    I was wrong about the manager. When I pulled her aside and politely talked about my issues with the waitresses, she did say she and the owner are working on giving them checklists, among other things. Hopefully them implementing this will make a difference in the long term.
    Because my parents are elderly and in poor health, I've had to step up and help out more around the house in recent years. I just got out of orientation for a second job that will pay me to take care of them.

    Sad to read about your parents' health conditions. They're lucky to have you supporting.

    That, and my brother comes over and does what he can to help. While it's unfortunate that a number of their conditions are due to genetics or old age, some of them are the result of not living a lifestyle where they're genuinely happy, taking good care of themselves, or being physically active.
    Because I've always ran the cinnamon edition of Mint (as that's what I started out on), I'm thinking of trying out the MATE, Xfce, and even the Debian editions. For anyone interested, I'll take notes and give a review of it. Just be aware that it will take a while because I work 5 days a week, and I have other things going on besides that.
    Happy 28th birthday to me! :D

    When I was at work this morning, two of my coworkers were showing me a video one of them made where it showed them, some of my other coworkers, and the clientele I know all wishing me a happy birthday. Because I often follow the golden rule, the saying "What goes around, comes around" really is true. :D
    My dad's been binge-watching reruns of Knight Rider lately. Correct me if I'm wrong about this, but did the popularity of KITT boost the sales of firebirds at the time?
    My mom slipped and suffered a minor fall this morning. While she's fine now, she bruises easily, and will have noticeable ones later on. Being that she's in her late 60s, and has numerous health problems (including spinal fusion), this isn't the first time she's been a fall victim.
    Because it's Christmas, I was thinking back to the Elf Bowling game, so here's a review of it from LGR:
    Even though the game was only released for Windows and Mac, you can play it through Lutris
    I had to work today, but I thankfully get the day off tomorrow. While it wasn't packed, I had to complete a lot of tasks while having a hunger headache (which went away after I had some lunch there), and now I'm bit burnt out. I picked some food up for my parents as well, and they enjoyed it.
    There's times like this morning where I'm laying in bed, and Tara walks in, jumps onto my bed, and becomes my alarm cat :D
    I've been looking at the Gemini PDA since it launched, but because it was so expensive, and I was in-between jobs at the time, I never got one. Now that there's plenty of used ones available on sites like eBay, and the prices are more reasonable because of that, I'm going to get myself a gift card in order to obtain it.
    I came across this pop/adult contemporary singer named Taylor Dayne last night, and after liking her one song "I'll Always Love you", I was playing her other songs earlier today at work. What's interesting about her voice is it can be described as "blue-eyed soul" (a white singer who sings with soul-sounding melody). Check her out, as I'm sure you'll like her as well.
    I think I pulled a muscle in my foot when I was at work last night. While taking a hot bath this morning helped, I still had to limp around at work today. Thankfully, I got off of work earlier.
    I don't want to upset anyone by mentioning this, but my cat Vegas died back in March, and today would've been her 16th birthday. I broke down again shortly after taking that in, but I wasn't heartbroken like I was when my family was in the process of euthanizing her.
    To the tornado victims within Kentucky, Illinois (my state), Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri, my heart goes out to all of you. To those who are participating in disaster relief, you are examples of genuine American heroes.
    Like many of you, I played with Legos as a kid, and decided to bring up LeoCAD, which is the FOSS version of Lego Digital Designer (and should be in most repositories). Although it's not as feature-rich as LDD, it's still a fun game to play if you don't have any assorted Legos on hand, or if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg.

    I have tried that before but don't remember do you know if you can export it as .stl

    The last time I played it, I was trying it out for the first time, so I wouldn't know about that. Because I'm going to busy at work for the next few days, I'll try to see if I can export it as an .stl file when I'm still at home. Also, I came across this site recently when looking up Lego's competitors: https://rebrickable.com/. Apparently you can sell instructions for how built something.

    Speaking of competitors, because 3D printing has been gradually improving over the years, it is possible to 3D print Lego-like pieces and potentially give Lego a run for their money. If that becomes a thing, I can see people using niches to make themselves distinct from Lego.
    It seems as Linux becomes more popular, sites like this one start attracting trolls and other weirdos. A common theme I've noticed with this crowd is their profiles have very little information about them, they'll often post threads about them wanting to engage in very shady behavior (or, in one case, be an attention-seeking idiot), and they're only on here for an extremely short while (often a few hours at best).
    My dad never fails at showing me how much of an idiot he's become. Even though I'm more than willing to show him how to use the gps app on his phone, he's insists on using a regular gps instead. However, he was perfectly fine with my brother showing him how to use the iPhone he had years ago. There would be a lot less arguments between us if he would simply think, and stop playing favoritism.

    You say you don't want to be tracked or hacked on a credit or debit card but you want to have Google or some other company track where you're going? Also, most GPS apps need internet and most good GPS devices are able to be used offline.

    I never said I would use the GPS app myself. Whatever he does with it is his business.
    Because the Lynx browser was made back in 1992, I decided to look up info about the 90s web, and through the EricExperiment, I found this one site called theoldnet.com (which is kind of like the wayback machine). For those of you who remember the 90s web, check it out. Just be aware some sites have broken links.
