Ok buddy heard you in the first post, it doesn't have carbonation.

It doesn't matter. If you drink enough of it you'll have intoxication.

It was only after I bailed into the right turn lane for the Wawa did she realize what she was doing and correct herself. That's a case of where I wish we all had bumper car style bumpers on our vehicles, so I could have sent her flying into a frickin' tailspin!
A woman did that to me while I was driving home from a Terps game last year. She was coming in my lane so I had to drift to the left to avoid her, only I hit a high curb and blew out my front tire. The dumb bitch never realized she did it so she just kept on driving and yakking away on her cell phone. Luckily I had a full sized spare because that was almost a year ago and I'm just now getting the spare replaced.

I did that about a year ago. I drove on my spare for about 6 months and screwed up my alignment so bad it cost me an extra 300 for some new longer bolts that did something. They told me the alignment was so bad that I had run out of the factory adjustment tolerance. I am not exactly car savvy so they could have been lying to me. It was a full size spare too. The wear pattern was so bad that I had metal showing on the inside sidewall.

I lucked out with my car a little bit. I'm getting a bunch of work done, including getting my heat fixed which hasn't worked for over a year (that 45 minute drive to work in the winter was a real bitch), but my dad just built the shop owner's son's house so they're giving me a good deal on the work. I was going to have all 4 tires replaced but they were cool enough to tell me that the back ones are fine and that I only really need 2 new ones. Luckily the shop realizes that my dad and I have a big family in the area and that good customer service will go a long way.

END ANTI-RANT

Re: The Rant Thread

I'm pissed.

I go to school full-time and work part time and I depend on my 16 hours a week to pay my bills (I live with my parents, so I don't have many bills). Well after the labor day holiday, they cut my hours down to 12 a week. Okay... Not great but I can live off of that. Now as of next week I'm down to 6 hours a week. 6. Wtf? I might as well live off the government, at least I can bleed them for more money than some measly $50 a week after taxes.

Fuck you Petsmart.

Re: The Rant Thread

Sorry to hear that DRave, Will they be picking back up for the holidays, or is this permanent? Either way, hope something comes your way soon.

My first question was gonna be I assume you work in retail, until you said f you Petsmart. I worked at a couple retail stores for a bit and it was maddening working with uncertainty towards my hours. I mean I was getting mad hours during the holiday season, (at Toys R Us I was getting 2-4 hours of overtime depending on how late I stayed, for a couple weeks I was averaging 50 hours (right after Thanksgiving, naturally) and then as soon as January came they told me they were going to keep me but hours would go down slightly.

Well I quit that job about a month later after I realized my 6 hours a week weren't going to get any better (for the entire month they only made me work 4 am to 10 am on a Sat., and all my coworkers hours were exactly the same). I started planning to quit after they told me hours usually pick up around April-June, f if I was gonna wait a few months on my meager salary to stay at the joint after busting ass during the holiday season.

Basically I'd say your better off getting a part time job at some place where hours don't vary based on what their sales are. I'm in the restaurant equipment biz right now and even though my job ain't the safest, it's easier knowing regardless of how busy we get I'll still be working 7:30 to 4 Mon-Fri, and still have the opportunity for overtime if my boss lets me come in early.

Retail blows. God bless those that make careers out of it, I know I wouldn't be able to take it.

Re: The Rant Thread

What is your guys' take on this?

Is it ok to pull up to a busy gas station, fill up, pay at the pump, then leave your car at the pump while you go inside and shop around. Meanwhile there is plenty of parking spots available. I dunno, I just get kinda irked when I see people doing this.
