    I'm in hospital again, the nurses seem to be targeting my partner going against what's listed on the wards door, "No one allowed after 10pm" says on the door it's open for partners, also no kids allowed and it clearly says on the door family and siblings allowed... They said once my daughter leaves the ward she wouldn't be allowed back on like wtf??

    Like is their a list of rules or are these mid wife's allowed to impose them on who they don't like the look of!

    Micro-managing bullshitter of a boss. I really like my job, the perks that come with it and the general environment... but I'm getting closer and closer to full on telling the bloke to **** off and do one.

    It's a company of 9 people, with 3 "departments", but everyone and everything has to be done his way, no matter how ridiculous it is or how many hoops it add to jump through.

    He's also one of those compulsive liars/exaggeraters- if you have a funny story or anecdote, he has one that is funnier or more impressive. And it doesn't matter where he was or what he was doing over the weekend, it's a given that somebody wanted to fight him and he managed to talk them down or get away with it... Give it up, mate - you're a middle-aged, overweight, software engineer with a dodgy back and complete lack of martial skill (though I don't doubt that you are very good at rubbing people up the wrong way).

    I had to have an argument with a nurse just to get her to do her job, and i must of done well because she went from taking both machines we had been looking at for 5 hours out of the room, to actually hooking one up, realising from the results something is actually going on, then having to use the second one, proceeding to get a doctor involved and a plan in place.

    I don’t want to argue, I don’t want to make your job hard, i don’t want you to go home thinking “what a crappy day” i just want you to do your cot damn jobs.

    1100 dollars extra this month, still not a dime for anything we want. That's ridiculous. I understand the AC units. Past that it's stuff for the kids. I'm going crazy with no PC or console, just a phone that I really don't want. I know I'm acting spoiled but I really just get tired of having nothing.

    Either my 5930k or Rampage 5 has died in my test bench... :(

    Will probably move my 8700k machine onto it now as the littl case I have, whilst nice looking, has terrible GPU cooling.

    Not exactly end-of-the-world stuff, but where the heck I got the idea that I'd had an i5-3570K in any PC I've owned.

    ... if only there was a way to track post signature edits...

    Wish I knew... seems I did go from an i5-750 straight to an i5-4690K; quite a jump.
