sadfase!!
similar thing though not at all...
possibly going full time at a job i don't particularly like >.<
though hopefully it will be hours with slightly more human contact, if it is more hours by myself i might just go insane.
and we aren't even allowed to listen to music for safety reasons or some shite

That is balls, but I guess you just gotta look at it as a means to an end. And steal as much shit as you can from the office.

inviting people into my life, house, circle of friends etc...
seeing lots of awesome possibilities with them, and then being used and treated like shit for it.

some douche bag stole my camera on the weekend. that sucks becoz there's pics on there i can never replace.

in general i reckon the state of societal values is pretty crap

in the last couple of months: someone pulled out the trees i planted at my house, presumably to plant in their own backyard then some other stain slashed our car roof. now the camera.

a few weeks ago my friend ran outside with an armful of tools to a break up a dog fight, dropping the tools in her rush. she raced the dog to the vet and came back to find some asshole had stolen the tools

then we have f#ckwits stoning swans and the like

social fabric is polyester crap imo

it's truly disheartening

recently my housie found a phone, and spent hours with the phone providers trying to work out who's it was to give it back.

gave it back to her, and the slapper said she was going to file a complaint to phone dudes for giving out her alternate number!

TBH I reckon some cops pull the same shit, but at the end of the day who really knows

People have left some pretty valuable stuff at my work....phones/wallets and the like. Wouldn't be able to get to sleep at night after pocketing any of it

Had someone leave an Iphone on the counter about a year back. First person to notice it was some cockhead customer who just picked it up in front of all of us, showed it to his mate and was like "sweet, score". I asked if he was for real or not and he said something like "what does it matter to you". Told him it didn't particularly matter to me but that if the poor prick whose phone it was returned to grab it, which clearly was bound to happen, that I wouldn't hesitate to help him get it back with footage and a police statement. Only then did he decide to give the thieving a miss and stormed back to his car having a sook as if I'd ruined his night or something. Sure enough the owner returned about 3 minuted later and thanked us profusely for keeping it safe

This is the society we live in. About 95% of the time I truly hate this country and the lack of moral values most of its citizens exhibit. More and more lately I'm overwhelmed with a sense of dread every time I have to go out in public, coz I'm almost certain I'll witness or be subject to some kind of outright cuntish behaviour

Correct. One where people are told success as a human being is measured through the house they live in or the car they drive. Also one where celebrities are worshipped and kids are told being a dick is ok, as long as they can make a buck out of it. FFS, we even think of gangsters as "ok" because they are able to project an image of success (flash cars, bling & bimbos).

Every man for himself is the modern motto, so it's not surprising that most people subscribe to the "Jack syndrome" (bugger you Jack, I'm alright).
The only normal people are the ones you don't know very well

i said arrogant OR sociopath. some people are so arrogant they can never admit to being wrong. So those people would be rude and not admit that they are being rude if someone pulled them up on it. Sociopaths are generally the type to never admit they are wrong as well.

However, there are arrogant people or pricks out there who are rude, but would probably not realise they are being this way, or being taken that way.

Meh, whatevs, students piss me off all the time - par for the course, innit. I may be a cunt, but I'm not an unprofessional cunt, so unless they have actually done something wrong, it doesn't really change anything.


Except of course when they do actually fuck something up, then they get the tonne of bricks that's owing to them :twisted:

Ha! Fair play. I've smoothed things over with my coordinator, so I think it's all good.
