Right now I'm revamping my resume. I hate redoing this pos paper that nobody ever really reads. I know they dont because they always ask me if I have experience with something that is clearly written on it and then assume I'm an engineer (I'm not).
[Edited for office space quote] Well... well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don't have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people! Can't you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people? [/edit]

Really, I loathe that even more than cleaning the flat every three weeks when it's on me. It seems such a waste of time, but unless I want to wear T-shirts all the time and never any jeans, I'll have to do it.
Walk together, talk together all ye peoples of the earth. Then, and only then, shall ye have peace.

What part of that demonstrates people skills? Referring to the 'god damn customers', or asking 'what the hell is wrong with you people?'

Work. If I get on a press next to the right people, it can make for an enjoyable night at work though. One of the new guys gets horrifyingly pissed off at whatever press he's on... it's rather entertaining to watch.

Going to the doctor once a month. It's ridiculous. Takes a half a day of my time for a 20 min. appointment just to get a refill. And don't start me on the pill counts. My neighbor happens to go to the same pain clinic, and she keeps a two-week supply on hand just for pill counts. They've never noticed she keeps bringing the same pills for counting over and over again. LOL.

Next Friday I have to attend a concert of my best friend's band in some hicksville in Lower Saxony (thanks God for the navigation system in my car!). The concert begins at 10 PM and will last approx. 3 hours, after the concert we've to drive back to my friend's apartment, the ride will also take approx. 1.5 hours, I can't even drink a beer there because I have to drive back.
Anyway, he's my best friend and I am doing it gladly for him despite I am not looking really forward to spend a Friday night with driving around in the middle of nowhere.

Everything... OK really
Hand-washing dishes: That was the only chore my parents could never get me to do, regardless of punishment. They could ground me, not let me use the car, not feed me... didn't matter. I would not do it under any circumstance. Now that I have my own place, and not everything fits in the dishwasher, I have to do it.
Laundry: I don't dislike doing laundry, the only kicker to that is my washer/dryer are two flights down, and I have to carry all that shit down the stairs.... which are inevitably blocked with shoes/boxes/dead bodies/kidnapping victims my stupid neighbors seems to leave in the middle of the stairway just so I can trip on them.
I'm going to go with this quote as my personal strength.
and possibly use this as a skill:
"I could write a letter to your nation's board of tourism and I could have this place condemned. I could put... I could put... strychnine in the guacamole. There was salt on the glass, BIG GRAINS of salt. "

Going to school. If we learned things that would be useful in the real world, I wouldn't mind it so much, but I am sick of paying out the ass, to attend classes that feed me information that I will not need in the future....but hey, its supposedly worth it in the end.

Quoting Aloges (Reply 22): Which one exactly? It's not like my home state has few of them...
I have no idea what the name of the village is but the closest bigger city is apparently Einbeck. I already looked on a map, seems that I have to drive on the A44 till it ends, then on the A7 (a new Autobahn for me) till Einbeck, and then another couple of kilometers on some Land- or Bundesstrasse. I could kill my friend's bandmate who organized the gig there... on the other hand I have full trust in my navi system.
: Ah, my hometown. I actually thought so. Tell me if you like the beer which you'll undoubtedly get at that gig. Coming from the A44, you might want to
: What? Unfortunately I can't drink there, I have to drive back so no beer for me on that evening. However we will definitely take a few bottles with u
: Clean up this kind of stuff when it's -40F . . .
