    Water-only café opens to flood of criticism in New York City | The Sideshow - Yahoo! News

    Overuse of the word "Artisan". But I'll be OK with it when I can refer to my flying as "Artisan Airmanship" and charge a premium for it.

    Artisan water? WTF?

    It was bad enough when we lived in a similar townhouse complex where we actually owned the house.
    Now, as renters, they see us as interlopers who don't belong, and are (categorically) the cause of their decreased property values.

    When I asked for a copy of the HOA rules, this guy, who lives (literally) 2 doors down and seemingly has nothing better to do, (actually) tells me I can only get them from the owner, who has since moved to Manhattan and is unknown to me as anything other than the recipient of my monthly rent check.

    NYC women in cafes who talk a bit too loudly in carefully cultivated graduate speak about gender objectification and the dehumanizing social aspect of being objectified daily by the impersonal stares of men in this great big inhuman city while wearing a pair of shorts any halfway skilled gynecologist would not have to remove in order to do a full exam and a shirt made out of wax paper and cellophane with 10" Jacques Derrida platform heels.

    If letting your janglies breathe and your underworld see the light of day gets your buzz going, then get your buzz going. But don't disguise it in a cloak of invisibility that you made in graduate school. That education cost your parents plenty. Use it to save the world or something.

    While we're at it, "rate of speed." Stop saying this. Stop it now. Especially if you are a police officer. Speed is a rate. PLEASE STOP.
    "moving forward." You hear it in business a lot and on the media. Oh, I'm glad you clarified that something you're talking about doing takes place in the future. For a moment I thought you had invented time travel and something you plan to do might - just might - take place the day before yesterday.

    Goddamn contractors installing homasote on top of drywall with finishing nails and LiquidNails.

    1) Screws and finishing washers not fast enough?
    2) How bout just screws?
    3) WTF. Finishing nails?!?!

    40-50 blobs of LiquidNails per 4x8 sheet. 6.5 4x8 sheets.

    Option 1: Scrape. Belt sand. Patch ~ 300 blobs
    Option 2: Cut out. Patch. Sand ~ 300 blobs.
    Option 3: Furring Strips + new sheet rock. Extend outlets, fire alarm, data ports, etc.
    Option 4: Demo + re-rock.

    All options will cost $2500-$3k.

    OR

    I can come in after 9pm when all of the facilities management peeps leave and do it myself. @#$$%W#$!!!! union bullshit. (Last time I painted a wall here the painting boss came in and said, "If you do that again we'll come in and paint it back, charge you for that and then charge you to paint it the color you want. You must call us first." WTF!?!? This is why the school's tuition is 50k a year and my salary is shit.)
