The Bad News Thread
 
So I recently started a good news thread and now tonite I found 37 dollars of itunes purchases on my bank account. After spending about 45 minutes on the phone with apple and wells fargo I discovered my daughter was buying "bags of gold" to the tune of 4.99 a pop on some ipad app called campus life. Hence the bad news thread. This thread can range from anything from, I stepped in dog shit today to, something really shitty that you just feel like talking about. I would say cheers, but its the bad news thread.

I'm becoming more convinced that my job is actually a psychological experiment and our "client" is actually just a group of doctors trying to see if they can drive an entire team of people completely insane.

Realized my work-study is better than BOTH of my full time employees and both are asking me about promotions!

You don't work for an insurance company do you?

We have a similar running joke in our office. Someday we're going to find out we've been on a reality show for the worst jobs in the world.

This will be a funny psychological test of the Warpath community's outlook on life. What will get more posts, the good news thread or the bad news thread?

Oh the bad news...no doubt.

People will avoid self-congratulation far more than bitching.

For example: I have all day project meetings for 12 1/2 out of the next 17 work days. Bad news man. Bad news.

One of the techs at my dealership won't talk to me, don't know why. Maybe it's the spray that [URL="http://www.amazon.com/Liquid-Ass-Mister/dp/B000OCEWGW"]smells like ass[/URL] that I sprayed in his bay on Saturday. Or maybe he's plotting revenge. Not sure really, oh well.

Just now seeing this thread. Well, it's been about three weeks ago now, but my parents' house, my childhood home, burned down a couple of Sunday mornings ago. Lost everything. My parents did make it out, barely. Mom had to be treated for carbon monoxide poisoning. She was trying to save her dog.

My wife and I took the dog and the cat in to take care of them while my parents were displaced. Unfortunately, the dog had so many health issues that we had no choice but to put him to sleep last week. All that and my wife's back going out on her, and the last couple of weeks have been pretty rough for my family.

Shit Skinsguy sorry to hear that. Thank God your parents are ok - that is definitely what is important. When hurricane Sandy hit us here my father in law and alot of other people i know lost their houses and all of their personal stuff. I saw what that did to him. Can be really tough but im glad that they are OK.

Thanks guys. I had lunch with them today, and I can tell that this whole thing has kind of worn them down. But you know what has bothered them more than anything is the dog having to be put down. It was such a hard thing for my wife and I to do. We felt terrible, because we wanted, so badly, to keep him good enough health so that he could be somewhat of a comfort to them while they went through all of this - but it wasn't meant to be. They say they don't think they want another dog, but I'm kind of hoping (and wanting) for them to get another dog wants their house is able to be replaced. My family has always had pets, mainly dogs, and I can't seem to ever remember a time of not having a pet.
