i have salt sticking to the inside of my throat
ALRIGHT LISTEN UP IMMA TELL YOU SOME SERIOUS GENDER MARKETING BULLSHIT THAT WENT DOWN TODAY
Today a woman came in to get her 13 year old son’s black iPhone fixed. This thing was totally fucking busted. She was already kind of being bitchy so I’m just trying to reassure her that everything will be fine and shuffle through the paper work so shes on her way. She leaves, I put her phone away till I have time to fix it.
Well come to find out that we were completely out of black screens until next week’s shipment. So I put on a white screen for now and reassure her that when we do get black screens in that I will call her and we’ll put the new screen on for free. Better to have a temporary mixed match phone then a broken one right?
This woman proceeds to flip her shit. “WE CAME HERE TO GET WHAT WE HAD FIXED!” I calmly explain to her that there is nothing I can do about the color for the time being. The son is totally fine with this and obviously embarrassed by his mother’s outburst. The woman snatches the phone, sneers at it, and then shoves it back into my hands and says “NOW IT LOOKS LIKE A GIRL’S PHONE! I AM NOT GIVING THIS TO MY SON!”
At this moment I turn to her and say. “I don’t undersand? How is it a girl’s phone now?”
"Well it was BLACK and now its WHITE!!" She gestured dramatically at the screen like I couldn’t fucking see it.
"How is white a feminine color?"
She huffs and explains that she refuses to take the phone until the color is changed. The 13 is now rapid fire “its fine its fine” cause he just wants his phone back. But she keeps refusing but I finally tell her again that we will change the phone for free when we get black screens and that shes not allowed to keep it here.
The point of the matter is that this woman almost refused to even take back the phone BECAUSE OF ITS COLOR. Mind you its not even anything like pink or purple. ITS. WHITE.
A SUBURBAN WHITE WOMAN TURNED RED IN THE FACE WITH ANGER BEAUSE SHE THOUGHT WHITE WAS TOO GIRLY FOR HER SON.
And the son is more mature than her.
Cosplay all the things…because u can!
Unless you’re fat like me.
FUCK THAT SHIT, DUDE
YOU ARE FUCKING FABULOUS COSPLAY WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT
IF YOU HAVE TO MODIFY A COSTUME SO YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE WEARING IT, DO THAT! IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE 100% EXACTLY LIKE THE CHARACTER’S IF YOU ROCK IT LIKE THE GODDAMN CHAMP YOU ARE
AND IF ANYONE MAKES YOU FEEL BAD FOR COSPLAYING YOU PUNCH THEM IN THE DICK AND SHIT ON EVERYTHING THEY LOVE BECAUSE YOU ARE A GODDAMN RAY OF SUNSHINE AND THEY CAN GO TO HELL
The bolded bit there? I feel like that advice is beautiful for SO MANY SITUATIONS.
in other news I waited two hours for my sims 4 character creator demo to install and when it did it told me my video card was invalid
technology is great
my dad apologized to my mom and cried and told her why he was so upset yesterday and that something she said or did wouldn’t be annoying usually but all the things he’d seen and been through that day when we weren’t there made him really angry and upset so this little thing set him off
I’m really really glad because this actually shows he’s growing up and becoming a big boy because he actually used the words “I’m sorry” and he explained why he had been so upset and he cried
this is really really good
ahhh that ending was a bit disappointing :C
I really expected Kirie to like leave Suichi behind and somehow burn down or destroy the underground city and then some kind of mystical blinding light shines and she wakes up with her hair back and on that cliff where she starts the story in the first chapter and everything’s back to normal and nobody remembers anything except for Chie, Kirie, and Suichi
urrrgh junji ito why
