Also, I'm pretty sure all the messages say "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine".

That or they say "Where are my pants?".

I tried to bro code, but I never had any luck; it kept failing to compile.


Dude! Holmes!! Bro!!! The only rule of Bro Code is to never talk about the rules of Bro Code, bro.

I want to figure out the bro code. Because guys will do silly things to each other and say it's all about the bro code. And I'm like uhh what?

So, what's up with this new cookies b&+$*@%# on the website.


Isn't the brocode one of those things Zapp & Roger used that makes you sound like a robot?

Those both came out sounding harsher than I meant them to.

So, this is Gorbacz's fault.

I should have known.

And he leaned in toward her and put one elbow on the art supply shelf and said, in a low whisper, "But you know, the COOLEST one is Octopus Prize."

I died.

and so, a nickname was born.

waitaminute, how do you know his dads flirting voice?

Probably the second most legitimate question in this whole incident, and the most pressing question to me is, how did the name Octopus Prize get past Hasbro screening?


...the media production class concerns me.

Actual dialogue from an anime I'm re-watching;
"What did you pray for?"
"Oh, nothing, probably the same things as everyone else..."
"You prayed for World Domination?"

From another student's birthday party.

He's mostly harmless.

They gave me neon yellow T-shirts for work, they go with the neon yellow gloves I found, so all I need are neon shorts and a neon hat and I can be Neon Jesus.

And, here I am, back from my Wednesday day off. The best thing about a day off in the middle of the week is that I don't have to wait until the weekend to do laundry.


They've started building something in the empty plot across the street. I hear that it'll be an office building of some sort. And, they tore up the empty plot beside the garage for their equipment. Yes, the side of the garage that isn't the hotel.

So, I've learned a new "generational thing", and in spite of my overly-generous nature, I can't say I approve.

It would seem that the teens and twentysomethings of today assume that, if you offer them something, then you're also offering to pay for said thing.

  • Evidence the First: After a particularly hilarious round of the JackBox t-shirt game (I forget its official title), one of the kids said, "I am ordering that shirt right now!"
    I said, "OK!" and we brought up the ordering site. I put in his order. All the other kids started ordering. By the time we had 8 or 9 shirts in the order, one of the other kids said, "Well, I'd order more, but you're already paying so much I don't want to make you pay more."
    "What? What makes you think that *I* am paying for these shirts?"
    Cue a quick cancellation of all but 3 shirts (the original guy, Impus Major, and Impus Minor).
    So all these kids figured that since I'd brought up the order site at the request of one of them, I'd be paying for all the shirts. It was... surreal.
  • Evidence the Second: NobodysWife asked a co-worker to lunch. When he said that he was busy, she asked, "Well, since you can't come, would you like me to pick something up for you?"
    He looked over the menu, picked something out, and she went off and got it for him.

    He, of course, never even considered paying her for the lunch.
    But he's not as good evidence, as he proved himself a buttweiner right after that. (She "took too long" so after asking her to pick something up for him, he went across the street and got food for himself, so he didn't need the food she picked up.)


  • But it's an interesting extension of the whole, "Kids aren't growing up until their 30's any more" that I've been reading about. If you're socializing with someone under 25 and you're over 40, it seems like they just assume you're going to pick up the bill.

    Weirdness.

    This isn't something new. It's a glitch at the edge of etiquette - extending the general rule of "the one inviting others to <thing> should pay for <thing>" beyond its traditional boundaries and into vague territories and beyond. The first case is more blatant overextension of this than the other, as you weren't the one who offered to order it in the first place but reacted to someone else's decision to order.

    Spoiler:
    Personally I prefer to clear the matter of payment beforehand, usually using vague statement like "I don't have that kind of money" or "how much will it cost", to give the person extending the offer the chance to explicitly say "it's on me" or say something like "oh, ok"


    It is very awkward to be in or hear of situations like this.
    Thanks for the cringe challenge? I failed.

    That's a good way to get a broken orbital socket in the Midwest.


    I'm confused...
    Am I supposed to see something with that quote or not...

    I was responding to Drejk, but I didn't have much to say and work just picked up, so I hit "Cancel" instead of "Delete" and got something bizarre.

    And now it's gone and you just sound like you were hallucinating.

    ** spoiler omitted **

    indeed.

    This is also extremely cultural.

    It is best to be a bit wooden/oafish and say "my treat" or "dutch (or your local equivalent)" after making the offer to avoid confusion.

    Can't tell you how many times I embarrassed myself growing up coming from a culture that assumes the absolute worst if someone pays for something for you, especially across gender lines.

    I still won't remove it.

    So I may be stepping all over FaWtL rules here, but it's kind of important, since I chaperone a LOT of kids: Do you think that's a "black culture" thing, a "New York culture" thing, or some combination thereof?

    We have a HUGELY diverse school, and I don't want to get myself reported for inappropriate activity for offering to buy someone lunch or something...
    (And on a total side note, apparently it's totally OK for Balinese, since I bought a Balinese girl and her friends dinner for doing me a solid, and they were just happy 'bout the whole thing... so data point of 1...)

    I certainly didn't bust out my phone as I was watching the movie for the first time and make this alias. That would be f#~$ing crazy.

    Oh wait, that's exactly what I did.


    I think the "pavers" for the patio in front of the two walls are heavier than the blocks for the wall, and just as heavy as the caps for the wall were.

    Which is too bad because it's going to be a big ass patio.

    Yeah, I don't think it's a generational thing, it's just a thing with some people. I don't know if they start off raised that way or if they just evolve backslide into that way of thinking over time. If you don't clearly state your personal (and financial) boundaries/expectations with them up front, they think nothing of walking all over you accepting your kind offer and expecting you to do it gratis... and then seem confused/upset when, no, you can't really afford to buy them lunch for free (or waste two whole days fixing their computer that they royally borked up, and why is it taking so long... grumble, grumble).

    It ain't you, NobodysHome. All you can do is try to identify these people asap, and adjust your interactions with them accordingly.

    I've heard of custom-shaped pools before, but custom-shaped patios are new to me.
