I have this psycho girl who thinks she should be the center of my universe, and otherwise throws big huge tantrums if X = My Universe is not holding true. We will call Psycho Girl... Chamzel's Stupid Girlfriend. She is 22 years old and lives on her own on disability funding from her state and lives in a really cheap, really small single apartment... filled with really old guys and a few other young disabled people to boot. Anyway, that's cleared out of the way.
Today's story of Chamzel's Stupid Girlfriend...
So she needs to use a pay washer and pay drier to do her laundry with. A lot of the time she doesn't have her money split into quarters, and she needs about $4 worth of quarters for a complete two loads. Whenever she doesn't have that money split she'll call me, no matter what the weather is like or how late it is. So one day I follow the calling of Stupid Girlfriend and arrive at her apartment. She asks "Chamzel, can you take me to the bank so I can get my money split into quarters?"
I look at her funny and go, "Bank? The bank's closed. Why don't you go have it split at a gas station, it's just down the street. You can make it there in about thirty minutes if you start walking now!"
She boggles in question and says, "The gas station? Why?"
I begin to bang my head against a wall and say, "Because you can go to just about any store and ask them to split your money for free!"
At that point I tug on her arm and we get going to my car. I drive her down to the gas station, which is nearing close time. I bump her into the door and nudge her side, and she starts to try asking the clerk if he would split the money for her. And, of course, indeed he does. I've done it there before, so I know that they don't expect you to buy something first before they'll do any free services for you. She gets enough quarters for her laundry, however, the store didn't quite have enough quarters to split her five dollars.
And that, my fellow clickers and clickettes, is Story number one of Chamzel's Stupid Girlfriend.
And if you ever wonder what she looks like, then no, she is not blonde. But I could sure make a blonde joke out of her!
I dunno, locking just because people can't get girls and don't like seeing stories about ladies is kind of down right lame, Circy. If you're locking a thread because YOU can't get a girl is even more down right lame. -_-
Admins need to get together and discuss things like this and post up on the website rules about what can, should, and cannot/should not be discussed around here before admins go around rabidly laughing and locking threads around. This should also help the taming of admins who aren't quite down with their responsibilities in keeping the people who like to run around and flame others down and in order. This all should then be brought up with the site owner, or head honcho admin, and have it stamped for approval and then posted for every user to see. Furthermore, you should really consider explain why you are locking a thread with your admin privileges within reasonable lengths. Being an admin is about responsibility and unfavorability, not the other way around, if you know what I mean.
