Why don't I trust some of my friends? I can tell when some of them are lying to me so easily. I feel like I'm one of the few people who stick by what I say, and don't say things that I don't truly mean :/

Well, I try to not get angry, upset or frustrated with things; Especially when it comes to prop making. Everyone who has ever done anything knows that mishaps happen. Just frustrating when it happened for no other reason than I simply wasn't paying attention. Was using a dremel to do some detail sculpting on a few spots on the sword prop I'm making, and ended up rounding off a point that needed to be a 'point'. And it's in a very obvious spot that will be easily noticed. Guess I'm going to have to use some bondo or fiberglass to see if I can fix it >.< Oh well lol, no sense in getting upset with something that's already happened. Only direction to go now is forward

It really bothers me when one of my kind of con friend messages me and after about 3-5 minutes of talking just sort of disappears even though he's still online. Is there a point in messaging me to begin with if you didn't really want to talk? This happens like 2 or more times a week too....

It annoys me when someone complains about being discriminated against, and then turns around and explains away them acting the EXACT same way because, traditionally, people like THEM are more discriminated against. Apparently, the rules only apply when YOU'RE offended by something.

I know, right? A fucking BEAR says hi to you? You could kill my grandma and then be like "BEAR! WAVE TO HIM!" And I'd probably be cool with it.

Not the most inspiring example, but I'd probably react the same way.

You know you can't trust your friend with things when you talk about something COMPLETELY different, and some other mutual friend thinks its about something else that he wasn't suppose to know anything to begin with. So stupid...

I think I'll just keep everything to myself from now on, or only talk to friends that aren't mutual friends.

Here's a good rule of thumb. If you're ever going to call into a car dealership to buy parts...have your VIN handy. And if you don't? Don't get pissy when they ask you to get it. And if you refuse to get it? How about not being a bitch because the parts aren't right. I've had three people come in today complaining they were sold the wrong parts and NONE of them provided the information we really NEED to look them up. And, hey, maybe know some basic facts about your car. Like what kind of car it is, who made it, what year model it is. You know. Basic shit. Maybe you don't come to the counter plunk down a part and say "I need dat." That's not enough. Maybe don't come to the counter and say "I need a fuel line for a (insert manufacturer here)." That's useless. Also of note: We don't make the prices and are not on a bartering system. You do not deserve a discount because you exist. Parts departments are a business, not a charity. And above all, we're not trying to fuck you, so please, don't approach us all combative right out the box. If I talk down to you or treat you like shit? Sure. Have at it. But given the fact that I DON'T do that, just quit being a dick.

^My Dad would agree with that on all parts. He works (well, started in September, so he hasn't been there too long) at a Dodge dealership. Officially he works in the lube bay, but he's a Class A mechanic and they DO get discounts for selling parts. But, he has to put up with a lot of crap. Like, "No, thoroughly cleaning your car is NOT a fantastic idea before you bring it in for work, because it's going to get dirty again, and if there's a leak we can better find it", "brush all the god damn snow off before you take it into the garage so we don't have giant puddles on the floor", "You bring it in to a dealership to CHECK TIRE PRESSURE? WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU EVEN DRIVING IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT YOURSELF?", and related to the last one, "No, you are NOT supposed to have exactly even pressure in each tire, and it's basically impossible to do that ANYWAY. Don't bitch me out that one is 2 psis off from the other because there is NO impact on your car from it".
Yeah, glad I don't work in the auto industry. Although retail clothing stores have plenty of bitchy customers too AND the pay is a lot worse.
