After two years I got fired at my job today. For going to the toilet without asking.


#291

You should of asked, even 47 knows when to ask.

joke


#293

Yup…We need that Pinecone Thread re-opened.


#294

Greg Thurman was always there for everybody :sweat:


#295

What is the Pinecone thread though


#296

What’s the story with that? Do you mind sharing?

Were you like a guard at military base or something?


#297

A thread I made from long ago… Long before your time here lmao

Jk, naw, you can still type in Pinecone and check it out, it’s just closed now… It was a venting thread I made long ago, but got closed due to…politics…

No. I work at a supermarket. I almost pissed my pants so I went to the toilet. But when I stood by the door the chef came and asked me what I was doing. I said I need to go to the toilet. He said “Oh I don’t think so”. So I said I can’t just piss my pants. That was a bit too cheeky for him. We have this rule that when you have 3 warns you get fired. I had 2. I got my 3th one for going to the bathroom without asking. I could leave ammediately and today I had a chat with my boss about it. I am fired and need to return my stuff next week. After 2 years of work I get fired because of this shit. Thanks.

Damn that’s not right at all. I use to work at a super market. Never heard of anything like that-they just wanted you to wash your hands. Sheesh. Sorry to hear that- hopefully you can find something better. And I don’t see how that reply was cheeky at all. It is a fact of the matter statement


#300

Damn chefs!!! Bastards. Sorry to
Hear.


#301

The existance of a flag limit makes me sad. I understand why it is that it has a place, but still makes me sad.


#302

These episodes from Courage the Cowardly Dog always get me into tears:


It’s just…

Just own your height. You can tower as a person. You don’t need those extra inches.

People will gravitate towards your confidence.

Look at Peter Dinklage from “Game of Thrones”. Yes, I know he’s rich and famous. but his character has still become something of a sex symbol – despite the fact that he has dwarfism – because of the self-assured way in which he carries himself. He’s more “manly” than most of the taller guys on that show, and there are plenty of women who would agree.

And that’s a very extreme example. 5’ 6" isn’t short in comparison.


#305

Thanks man, and you’re right- Tyrion’s height doesn’t matter at all because of his personality, I never thought about it like that. There’ll definitely be people who judge based on cosmetics and appearance alone but people like that are narrow-minded & childish if they can’t give a personality a chance. So they’re not worth dealing with.

Like I said, I could be shorter, so I try my best to look at it from a positive perspective, really as long as I’m taller than the girl I’m dating, that’s all that I think I should worry about.

I’ll keep that comparison with Peter Dinklage in mind and hopefully that comparison helps anyone else on here who feels the same way I do.


#306

Peter Dinklage Is definitely a good comparison. He’s not ashamed about his height in the slightest. It’s one of the reasons i think he’s so well respected. He doesn’t let it bother him which lets him be as charming as he wants to be.

Sorry for late reply to this. I know how that feels. When I was growing up, I lived near a road where people would race constantly. One night during summer vacation, my dad and I heard a loud sound of a motorcycle winding down and a loud bang. We went out to see what happened and there were two guys scattered all over the street, a totaled motorcycle and an elderly woman in a big Ford Thunderbird. These two guys were going so fast they went into oncoming traffic and hit the lady in the T-bird head on. They wore no helmets and their bodies were scattered all over the street. One guy landed close to the sidewalk and I just stared at him hoping he’d get up and move, but he just lauded there as still as still can be. Sad event.


#308

Wow, that’s crazy. It’s one thing to just hear a tragic event like I did, but you actually saw it. Did they survive?


#309

Dude, I am your girlfriend’s height. I used to feel like that was a horrible thing, but later I came to find that even though people are always giving us a hard time because we’re short, it can only bug you as much as you let it. Lots of ladies couldn’t give a shit less that you are shorter than they are. You and Al Pacino are the same height. :grinning:
