    Idk, but I can assure you that he works in computer sciences and assumes he's Tony Stark somehow.

    It's always the lowest ones that pipe up. I had to inform this bottom rung status twerp that he needed to stop raising his voice in my lobby about being entitled to a king bed. He thought enrollment automatically entitled him to one. Nope.

    Here, have a free water bottle as a bottom rung snowflake. I'll even write your name on it if it makes you happy. Go to bed in your queen. Stay in your lane.

    [–] What known "offensive" words do consider blown out of proportion/non offensive and why? SmilingMisanthrope 2 points ago in AskMen

    Thank you. This shit is so stupid. I even get frustrated with news channels when some journalist has to be forced to run an interview about some case of racism and then they keep having to refer to it as 'the N word.

    Newsflash, the entire world knows you mean Nigger. You're not calling the interviewee one. As long as you aren't peppering the word throughout the whole interview, with some new zeal of getting to say it on national TV, go tf ahead, we're all bloody adults here.

    [–] What known "offensive" words do consider blown out of proportion/non offensive and why? SmilingMisanthrope 6 points ago in AskMen

    Fuck: It's so common by now and I think people sometimes overreact about the word in some context. I hate when uptight people react to light usage of the word with the same shock or offense as if you had just tattooed a swastika on tour hand or some shit.

    Let's use the workplace as an example:

    Telling a colleague to go fuck themselves or to stfu, is rude and inappropriate, obviously and should be reprimanded.

    Ending a 12hr shift and having some tech malfunction on you before wrapping up and uttering 'fuck' out of frustration should slide.

    What's your serenity anchor? Between the unflattering clients and colleagues that throw a wrench in your work, what's your mantra that keeps you from walking into a separate room and screaming like a madman?

    Some establishments literally want you to say the person's name three times, along with the sir and ma'am, and laud them for their enrollment status. The higher the status the more lauding required. Makes no sense to me, because someone with a higher status probably lives in planes and hotels and couldn't give a blue fuck about anything other than getting their head on a pillow. But we gotta do it, incase it's a mystery client.

    [–] Need to vent! SmilingMisanthrope 5 points ago in TalesFromTheFrontDesk

    I feel you. Just got home (11am) from a shift that usually finishes at 7am.

    I'm the new full-time NA, aside from the two old ones. One of them is now shooting for evening shift, but hasn't even gotten it before starting to slack. I worked 6 nights in a row and then gor called in for the 7th because slacker called in sick. We are always 2 NA on shift because it's super busy here. I went in that night and left at 3am because I have another job later that day. The next night, he leaves back up NA to his own devices after calling in sick again. And then called in sick with me last night, leaving me by myself, even though I haven't fully finished the training. Backup had just done a back to back because of the previous ditch and stayed a couple extra hours to help me.

    On top of it, the person running groups forgot to mention that she told the road manager for a band that she'd have keys ready for their late night check in. So I got the joy of 17 people glaring at me and the road manager acting like a bit of a twat because of someone else's fuck up. The pay is great, but I'm about to quit. Grabbing a shower and it's off to my other job before going back to the hotel tonight. Fuck.

    [–] If we weren't such shameless consumers of every brand new cellphone on the market, we'd make a decent impact on the environment. What are other changes we can make for the environment that we dont often speak of? SmilingMisanthrope 1 points ago in AskReddit

    1. The amount of minerals and litres of water (especially in the cooling process) used to make the phones are massive. We accept buying a new phone either for consumerism sake (say every new model) or for practicality (say every 5yrs or so because the phone starts malfunctioning or is outdated software-wise. These companies can very well make phones that efficiently endure more than 5yrs, but that doesnt generate the same level of income.
    2. Yes.

    [–] Lonely people of Reddit, how do you deal with this dread that you will be alone forever? SmilingMisanthrope 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Pets, national geographic and discovering new music. I'm fine being alone but sometimes a wave of "aw-fuck-this-sucks :(" pops by to say hey. Digging into a book usually helps.

    [–] Men of Reddit, what's the difference between 'hot' and 'beautiful'? SmilingMisanthrope 8 points ago in AskMen

    Beautiful usually includes admiration of her character. Hot is usually just physically attractive. If both are superficial attractions: the hot one is pretty much just objectified, while the beautiful one taps into some sense of nostalgia ranging from slightly melancholic to erotic (if that makes sense).

    Bref: beauty makes my heart ache. Hot makes my huevos ache.

    [–] Guys who work with women, how do make friends with female co-workers? SmilingMisanthrope 1 points ago in AskMen

    Be yourself I guess? I'm usually lightly sarcastic and have a slightly odd humour. Sometimes, something as simple as making some off-handed, little quip about work grievance leads to good conversation. Its a lot more awkward if you're trying to form some actual direction or standard to the convo itself.

    [–] Guys who work with women, how do make friends with female co-workers? SmilingMisanthrope 4 points ago in AskMen

    This. I'm at a new job and I take a while to warm up to people in general. I formed a pretty good coworker bond with my female supervisor just by starting a convo about food while we filed through papaerwork

    [–] What part of "Sold Out" is so difficult to grasp? SmilingMisanthrope 1 points ago in TalesFromTheFrontDesk

    I love to help people out with this when I have the time, say I'm ahead of schedule with postings and audit tasks.

    I love the ones who ask that question and then get incredibly irate as I take 10s to mentally go over the hotels in the vicinity that might have a place. They then start cussing up a storm about the hotel, about the city, about me. About everything under the sun.

    Congrats, you just forfeited the last bit of my giving a shit. Feel free to gather your stuff and storm out with no helpful info.

    [–] What part of "Sold Out" is so difficult to grasp? SmilingMisanthrope 1 points ago in TalesFromTheFrontDesk

    I constantly get low-key accused of being too lazy to make a new reservation, when I inform people that we have no rooms that night.

    1) it's a fucking hotel. We literally live off of renting out rooms. I'd be promptly fired if admin noticed lower booking percentages on my shift.

    2) We are situated in the vicinity of a goddamn airport. One or two cancelled flights and any floating rooms are promptly occupied.

    3) Even if we had rooms on a night with cancelled flights, your no-emergency-money-while-away-from-home ass will probably waste 20mins of my time haggling for me to not more than 50% of that nights price at our establishment.

    4) This city is renowned for tourism and international business. They say there's no stupid questions, but ffs don't ask me at 3am after 3-4 cancelled flights, why everywhere is booked and expect me to have a specific answer for your whiny ass.

    [–] What oddly specific type of woman do you seem to attract? SmilingMisanthrope 1 points ago in AskMen

    flirts in sign

    Idk, they all also seem to be passionate about animals and wilderness. Do you fit the bill? If so, let me slide up in yo DMs tho (I kid)

    [–] What oddly specific type of woman do you seem to attract? SmilingMisanthrope 2789 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in AskMen

    OKC?

    Dating apps always have me confused. 9/10 times I get overweight white women who are in an open relationship with some dude with the virility of tinkerbell at a sweet 16 tea party. It's an oddly specific and disheartening match. I sort of hate remembering this now, but it is another oddly specific one.

    Edit: My first silver! Thanks mystery redditor! And yes, OkCupid. Sorry if Oklahoma felt like there was shots fired lmao
