what a fucking shitty week for my dad
uncle dies
I can't speak
hear that the divorce went through
probably getting phone calls about where to draw the line on
his multi million dollar home and other possesions during
hospice visits
what the fuck

I really shouldn't be relating myself to Henry Rollins every
second

This week i failed once again at becoming an alpha male. It
is also already tuesday, and so far, it is not looking that
i will realize my goal until saturday.
Fuck my life.

say "you are mine now."

i don't understand. you make a thread called "post your
week," and then promptly post your dad's week. are you not
an independent man?

tell your dad to keep his chin up, at least he's had a
multimillion dollar home. i certainly haven't

i'll start with just today

i woke up this morning, snoozed the alarm once or twice, but
nothing too terrible. once i was out of the shower, i was
feeling pretty chill. the train had been sucking the last
few days, but today it was alright, going in. it was a bit
late, but there was enough capacity; people weren't jammed
into each other... the only issue was people sneezing and
coughing everywhere. i really don't want to get sick again.
ugh

as soon as i get off the train, it's bedlam. i realize that
slight delay has everyone torqued, a bit late for work.
people literally move like cars do in traffic: no one wants
to let me change lanes to the offramp, so i have to cut
someone off.

work starts snoozily and gradually turns into a shitshow. i
have a russian cow orker, and he's probably the sharpest guy
we have, but gosh, he drives me batty sometimes. he's
sneezing and coughing into a rag and i'm even more sdfhjgdfg
about not getting sick.

things repeatedly blow up; i put out the fires. i run into a
more major issue, i mention it to my cow orker. he promptly
crowds me, starts telling me i do not understand problem.
he's super close to me, culturally different personal space,
i guess. usually doesn't bother me but i can literally feel
a bit of his flu spittle land on my hand at multiple points
and i start to feel like i'm going to flip out. he grabs my
mouse and keyboard and puts his hands all over. he insists
i'm wrong, i don't understand

but he doesn't fucking understand. he was in such a rush he
didn't even hear me say that a certain thing had changed.
after five torturous minutes he's finally all: oh, yeah, i
see, that is a totally different problem, then. dfjgkdfg.
the spittle lands on my wrist again and i literally,
physically react. flail

then he's still fussing with my computer, crowding me. lunch
is here; i'm dying for a cig. i stand up. let him keep
messing with it. minutes pass. he's still fucking with my
workstation, chatting at me. i get up and leave

he left me be after that, though, more probably because he
had his own shit to take care of rather than worry about
mine. i coded for seven hours or so and the company owner
gave me a shout-out to everyone at the end of the day,
because, actually, i did fix the thing, in spite of it all

i have two beers at one of the train station's bars after
work. the train is late. then we have to move and get on
another train

i hate the train. work, well, it's not perfect, but
tolerable

"so, how is it actually coming along," the founder asks.

"well, uh... right now i'm just testing it, trying to find
problems, and, so far, i haven't found any" i reply

"that's the sort of excellence we strive for, here" he says

crowd laugh.

now i'm lost in a meld of the strange correlation between
technical decisions in the codebase versus political/social
dynamics within the organization

there will be some weaselpedia entries from this.

Why the fuck would an American company even hire Russians? A
fucking software company? It's a fucking insane security
risk. You guys seriously need to consider unionizing the
fuck up to stop your employer from hiring fucking Russians.

10:29 AM
If you don't respond. You are making the choice.
And helping me hate my life.
Can I trust you to tell me if you touched her in her sleep
or recorded sound or video.
My paranoia does not heal is just comes in waves.
11:49 AM
There was no recording of any sort. Everything that Has been
said is it. Like you said the pimple has been popped. I just
feel like I don’t even know what to do to make it better.
I think I need time to work out my problems. I love you
I think I need time to work out my problems too but we are
self destructing.
11:50 AM
Does that include sleep.
to my initial question.
That includes sleep
Do you wonder how she feels
Yes I do
...
In what way?
I’m curious about why she thinks it’s all my fault. She
was the one who never told me that what we were doing
wasn’t okay. I was only 16 and In so much pain from dad
dying. I didn’t know what I was doing. She’s making it
seem like I’m the monster who raped her when she wasn’t
telling me that it wasn’t okay.
She came into my room on my birthday and just started to
give me a handjob. How is that my fault?
Mom loves that story.
You know she told many people about your story while she cut
people hair in Colfax.
I've been approached in stores and had to re explain
everything.
With whole milk in my hand.
Had a best friend just come over to tell me that my love is
a cheating loser.
As long as theirs more people on your side. Your just more
popular.
Do you think that all of this was entirely my fault and
Kristen was in no way responsible?

I have no job and nothing to lose.
What does that mean
I'm in danger.
In danger?
Something is going to happen to my life
if this doesn't stop
Codi I’ve told you the truth. She was just as much
responsible as I was.
What about the next girl.
Or even before that.
You told me you've been with A LOT of women.
I have never raped anyone. How dare you accuse me of that.
Her name was

did you stop and have lunch somewhere, or were you just on a
plane the whole time?

were you smuggling narcotics?

are you a steward(ess)?

i almost wouldn't mind so much if there were more accurate
warnings; estimates of when the train, like, might
actually be there. instead, i'm standing there, watching an
LCD with the train listings (it's in a hardened enclosure,
outdoors, scuffs, bird poop -- looks right off the bridge of
the matrix hovercraft, those things do).

as soon as i arrive, trains are delayed. i am there way
early. i would have been better off working another half
hour and catching the later one. if i'd known how it'd play
out, i'd have just stayed at work.

but i didn't, i got there way early, and there are two
trains delayed. the next train in the queue lights up as:
delayed. then the next. then the next. i see mine coming up
three or four away, and i'm praying: please clear out before
mine

it does not. i am standing for like 40 minutes, my feet
hurt, and finally it is there, about when i'd have showed up
at the station to wait for the next train.

the engineer in me saw a classic cascading failure: delays
rippling across the system. later, one of the conductors
confirmed it: some train had problems, blocked all the other
trains, and so all the trains are late. he was quite a
character, that conductor, almost doing a bit of stand up to
the people in the car. "...yeah. i, personally, broke the
train myself" he deadpans

i don't blame him, i don't. but the cascading failure should
have immediately been posted to their freaking twitter, or
something, to let me know that it might be a shitshow
and i'd be better off taking the next train.

it's a win-win, really. if there are issues, and you let me
know, i will actually shift to an area of the system under
less load. but you don't. because you are the fucking late
