I also keep things simple. Very simple. My wardrobe consists of 2 pairs of blue jeans, 1 pair of denim shorts, a half dozen black t-shirts (with pocket), 2 pairs of pajama pants, 2 pairs of work pants, 2 work shirts, and I don't know how many (but not a lot) pairs of socks and underwear. That's it. Well, one of the shirts might be navy blue instead of black. I don't remember.

You has no underwear?

I have more clothes then you, but if you repeat the same clothes in the same week, as a female, people are going to talk.

Yes I do. I mentioned it in there. Even bolded it for you. And I know I have it easy being a guy, but frankly even if people did talk I wouldn't give a s*!+.

Oh, sweet irony. Talking about clothes while nekkid.

You see, the whole thing plays out like this:

Random insurance dude: Hey, do you have a minute to fill in this short survey?

Me: No sorry, I'm busy.

Random insurance dude: But this will only take a short while! Can't you spare me a minute?

Me: *walks away*

Random donation dude: Hey, do I have a minute of your time? Everyday XXX people are suffering from leukemia and could use a bone donor match...

Me: No sorry, I'm not interested.

Me: *walks away*

In the shop:

Random sales person: Hello miss.

Me: Hi (awkwardly)

Random sales person: You know, miss, we just got this dead sea salt from Jordan going at a 30% discount. It's very good for your skin and will leave your skin as smooth as silk.

Me: Uh no thank you.

Random sales person: But this is our latest product and has been scientifically proven to have very good results! Do you want to try some?

Well you sort of see what it feels like on an introvert to have to deal with that...that's why I rather ignore people sometimes.

I wouldn't shop at a store with a pushy salesperson. The few times, maybe 3 or 4, I've had to deal with that I've looked them in the eye, said "You are the reason I'm leaving", and then left without buying anything. I am by no means extroverted, but if you annoy me enough I will let you know. As for people on the street, I just say "No" and keep walking. That's generally all it takes for me. Then again, I am a fairly large man (~6' tall and way more pounds than I care to admit) so I suppose they may not want to annoy me.

I find it pretty easy to keep the count down. I only buy new clothes to replace old stuff that is falling apart.


Also, if a salesperson tries to tell me that something has been "scientifically proven" to do whatever, I assume they are lying.


Yeah I demand research data! Is it peer reviewed? Can the study be replicated?!?!


I'm usually polite with people until there not polite with me. so they typically just get a no thanks and smiles and shake of the head then ignored when they try to sell me stuff.

Gah Flashbacks to how much I hated Walmart they made me attempt to sell there darned credit card to people. I am not a salesman.

I'm small, and I've got this round, approachable face, so everyone bugs me. Including asking me for directions for places I haven't heard off.


I could see mort being easily approachable. maybe scowl more.

I hate giving directions too i'm so bad at it I should get a shirt that says: Fair warning: I will get you lost.

That's all I'm asking for. Say Hi as I come in. Ask if you can help, sure. But when I say "No, I'm good" then say Ok and let me go. If I need your help, I will ask for it. Be pushy and I'm gone.

The last time I walked out of a store because of the salesperson, I was buying 2 black t-shirts and a pair of jeans. The sales guy was all like "Oh, no! You don't want boring black t-shirts and jeans! You want these neon-colored, wildly-patterned shirts (that cost 3x as much as the t-shirts) and some of these designer pants (that cost 5x as much as the jeans)! They're perfect for you!!!" All this while I'm wearing a black t-shirt and jeans. So I said "No. I don't want those. I want these." referring to the clothes I was holding and ready to pay for. He said "No no no. Those are soooooooo blech. Just try these on and I'm sure you'll fall in love with them!" So I put down the clothes I was there to buy, told him "Since you aren't interested in listening to the customer, I guess you don't want a sale." and left. I went back a couple of days later and there was a different person on duty. I grabbed the shirts and jeans I wanted, went to pay for them, and left. She made the normal small talk (Hi. Can I help you? Did you find everything you needed? etc), but didn't try to push me into anything, so she got the sale.

Just need to work on the attitude then. Tell people "No" with authority in your voice. Or wear headphones and pretend you can't hear them. I've done that before too. Act like I'm rocking out to the music in my headphones even though they weren't plugged into anything.


Vidmaster7 wrote:

If I'm at work, obviously I have to try and give directions. But often times I say something along the lines of "Hmm...that's tricky. You're probably best off just following your GPS. It's the easiest way." If I'm not at work I'll either just shrug and say "Never heard of it", even if I have, or I'll say "Sorry. I'm not from around here."


That sad thing is the companies push there employees into doing that. They reward that over zealous behavior and encourage it. The reality is everyone is different, but these ridiculous policies set up by businesses just assume everyone is the same. like here they had a little mini campaign where they wanted all of us to say "My pleasure" instead of your welcome. It sounds odd for this area. no one talks like that. Every time we used it we got a look and it sounded so forced and rehearsed. It makes you sound disingenuous.

Marketing departments need lobotomized.


So funny thing about GPS for some reason Google has us at the wrong location. It takes people about 5 miles out of the way of us. I don't know how they mess up honestly we are the first place off the exit with a big sign you can see from the highway but somehow they trust there GPS more then there own eyes I guess. Then they will call and complain that they are in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately it happens so often I know how to get them back here now.

I used to work at a place like that. Except it wasn't GPS, but Mapquest directions. If you followed those they would take you out to a cornfield.


Lol That's awesome. Its like a modern version of that one twilight zone episode.

The Exchange

Me is helpful kitty! I'll give directions if I know the place, occasionally (if during lunch break) and if it's not too far off, actually show people to the place. Else I'll just say sorry, nope, don't know the place.

Also finished ironclad on acension 5. I think I'm not too bad at ironclad actually. And you can play a bodyslam deck without entrench and barricade. I used demon form though. Was lucky to land it. Also had reaper for heals. Block decks can run demon form.

The Exchange

I'm not even allowed to wear black. My mom says I can't because it's an unlucky color.


Well My feelings on Black are the same as the rolling stones.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't believe in luck (Although I did carry a lucky charm with me everyday since 3rd grade until it recently started to disintegrate. I need to run to the craft store sometime to buy stuff to repair/replace it.). I just like to wear black. It isn't a fashion statement or to show allegiance to some group (like goths or whatever). I just like it. My work shirts are not black, though. They are a dark blue, not quite navy, but dark. We're supposed to wear blue because it is the brand's color, so I bought the darkest shirts I could get away with. I started with navy, but was told that they were too dark.

Are you saying you feel the same way about black as you do about the Rolling Stones? Because I don't know how you feel about them. Or are you suggesting you share the same feelings as the Rolling Stones do? Because I don't listen to them so I don't know how they feel about it either. They did a song called "Paint it Black" didn't they? Wasn't it about mourning or something?


It was actually kind of a Vietnam war protest song in a way. It was about mourning yes, But you read way more into it then I meant... Maybe I should of said johnny cash.. or AC/DC or Metallica

The Exchange

More slay the spire feats. I ran an ironclad block/body slam deck without any barricade or entrench or juggernaut. But I did get demon form and reaper, so I basically waited it out.

This guy once pulled up to us in some s##!ty little town in a Lexus and asks co-worker "What's the best way to get to Madison from here?" Co-worker yells back "In a car!" Dude peeled off swearing at us.

When I was living in Italy, I once had a Fiat-full of drunk young Italian boys pull up next to me as I was walking home from the market. They asked me the way to the one dance club in town. I smiled and said, "sempre dritto, sempre dritto, due, tre chilometri" and they thanked me and went on.
Except two or three kilometers straight ahead, the road dead-ended at the town cemetery.
To get to the club, they would have had to make the same right turn I was about to make.

Black is an over-the-hill color that should have retired years ago, and you marvel that it's still alive?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm an all color sort of dresser.

My go-to wardrobe for the last thirty years or so consists of cargo shorts and a t-shirt, that absolutely has to have something on it, I don't do plain t-shirts.


So Captain Yesterday wants more kids? Three more?

It's boring and you'd rather wear something else but no one seems bothered by it much so you own at least one black thing?

I'm really colorblind. Really. Colorblind. Blacks and greys are a staple of my clothing simply so I don't have to worry as much about matching.

I'm also somewhat tone deaf (or whatever it is people use as an excuse for being bad at singing) so we can end every episode (or begin, if you prefer) singing along to songs I'm unfamiliar with.

NobodysHome Goes Political Again:
Yet again, the root cause of the most recent fires turns out to be... lack of line maintenance by PG&E.

Isn't deregulation wonderful?

The state deregulated PG&E in 1996. They proceeded to go bankrupt in 2001, either outsourced or ceased line maintenance as it was obviously an unnecessary expense, and gee... all of a sudden a little under 20 years later we're looking at multiple fires, hundreds of billions in damage, dozens (if not hundreds) of deaths, all due to... unmaintained lines.

It's FaWtL, so I'll shut up now.

Speaking of beyond aggravating, we have our third straight day of dangerously-polluted air today.

I had to go to Costco anyway, and there, in the parking lot, as I was loading the car, was a guy who started his car, then idled for precisely 5 minutes, before driving off. In 65-degree weather on a sunny day.

Can we kill off stupid useless old habits, already?

The *last* thing I needed was to be breathing his exhaust because his brain is stuck in the 1970s.

I get into serious arguments with my mom about this. She refuses to put the car into drive unless she had idled for about 2 full minutes, and gets irate when I start the car and pull off.

Yes, modern engines do not need to idle. But I know people who still insist on it.
