Argh.

"I'm going to go out Monday at Lunch and I'll get the replacement router, but I don't want anything hooked in directly until then."

"Oops. Sorry, I forgot. I'll go after dinner."

"I didn't end up feeling like it. I'll try to go tomorrow, sometime."

3 chances, says the Buddha.

If he hasn't replaced the router by tonight, to hell with them. I've been playing by his ultra-paranoid and often stupid rules since I came back to their house, and I'm sick of it. My family's inability to follow up on their word has been an infinite source of frustration to me, and one that I will no longer tolerate.

Besides, something tells me that if I hooked the wireless direct to the cablemodem, and loopbacked the broken router, he wouldn't even be able to tell if it was working or not.

I am tired of denying myself human communication.

[Poll #305066]

Someone asked this at PVP today, and then someone who I'm pretty sure doesn't read PVP asked it at work. The answers have been interesting.

Special cookies to those who mention what they'd do and why.

I think it'd be fascinating, and honestly, I can't think of a better disguise for robbing a bank...

Edit: Interesting. An overwhelming positive female response, and the only negative so far as come from a male. I wish I was still doing some gender studies work. This could be a paper in the offing.

Edit 2: Starting to see a few more negatives, some of them from women. Ladies, please, explain!

The problem with having done my job a little too well is that I get very, very bored at the end of the day.

Unless someone calls with a late day problem or emergency, by now I've hit all our outstanding calls, closed as many as I could, and we're at the point where if a call goes more than 2 rings before getting picked up, it's unusual.

There are times that I suspect my dad waits until JUST before I am ready to get into a confrontation with him, no matter how subtle, before doing what is needed.

On the other hand, at least he did the right thing, finally.

...I forgot it was [livejournal.com profile] demeterschild's birthday. Must do something later.

ALso, interestingly enough, [livejournal.com profile] janet_reno has apparently decided to weigh in on my little poll/sociology experiment. Interesting.

I'd like to note, though that I'd like to see explanations from those who offer contrary opinions. I think they're as if not more important than the affirmative.

ATTN: Anyone interested in a game.

Buy this.

Soon as I have a copy, I think I will be crafting a campaign. Rules changes in this book from Changeling or, for that matter, the Jade Kingdom, are significant. Please be familiar.

If this sounds good, please let me know...
