    [–] Don’t want to give me my deposit back? No problem. artvandelay9393 1 points ago in MaliciousCompliance

    Really expected it to go on a little longer before I was found out. Kudos.

    Ya hear what I said Ton’? I said I really expected ...

    [–] I will try to win every The Office argument you make, even if you’re obviously right. artvandelay9393 2 points ago in DunderMifflin

    While season 9 wasn’t the strongest season, it certainly wasn’t the worst. Season 9 saw the heart and soul of the show, the Office employees, become stars in this season.

    Earlier seasons were heavily reliant on the comedic genius of Steve Carrell. Season 9 gave a larger platform to actors who wouldn’t have necessarily gotten the opportunity to shine.

    Also, it’s unfair to say “except for the last 3.” This is an inherently invalid argument. You must treat the season as a whole - a whole that includes the final 3 episodes. As you point out, the last 3 episodes were excellent. Dwight and Angela’s roadside “argument” that turned positive quickly. 9 seasons of Dwight and Angels finally cultivating in a child and marriage.

    Michael returning at Dwight’s wedding, where we find out Dwight considers his coworkers his best friends. Pam going out of her way to do something nice for Jim (finally).

    While there are many faults with season 9, I would argue season 8 is the far worse season. James Spader’s performance is controversial among fans of The Office. Andy’s adventure to win Erin back. The dumb presentations in Florida - all awful, and considerably more awful than season 9.

    Creed should not be anyone’s husband, and Jan is too self-sabotaging to have a husband. Jan is a very structured person. She enticed herself by dating Michael, but that’s about as far on the spectrum as Jan should go when choosing partners.

    Creed’s constant and sudden outbursts, combined with his sketchy history, would probably result in Jan’s baby having some of those traits. Jan would never allow Creed to be her the father of her child if she didn’t let Michael.

    This is a silly one.

    As Karen and Pam once told Michael, you can make the argument that abbreviating words/leaving someone words out actually wastes time.

    Pam: “for example, with the last thing you said, by the time you explained it...”

    The explanation of why Kevin intentionally leaves words out creates confusion and causes other employees to figure out what he’s trying to say, therefore wasting time.

    The only time I can see Kevin’s logic working is over the course of many months/years with the same group of employees who understand what Kevin means. And even then, you’d have to compare the initial time wasted when Kevin began these shenanigans to the minuscule amount of time saved over the course of months/years. Would be close.

    [–] AITA for having a dress code for our wedding? artvandelay9393 0 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Even the NAH comments are partly agreeing with everyone who says YTA.

    100% YTA. I’m sure you’ll cherry pick the 0.1% of NTA responses to validate your twisted logic. You remind me of lazy college professors who tell you to “refer to the syllabus.”

    You clearly care much more about the look of your wedding more than the most important part: the people. You chose to invite people to share this day with you and now you’re blowing it, no matter how many times you stated the dress code (which isn’t even the actual white tie dress code - yours is some amped up version that reminds me of Germany circa 1939).

    What you’re telling people by saying “if you don’t like it then don’t come” is “we care more about pictures looking good than sharing this day with you.” This is the reason you are the asshole.

    So now your guests have 2 choices. Either they dye their hair back to an acceptable color, buy a dress that covers up any tattoos or piercings, spend money which they may not have just to attend your wedding, or they can’t go. Do you realize how awful that sounds?

    Idk who you guys think you are by instituting all these rules - this sounds like people who desperately want to be included in the class above whatever class you’re in. As many others have pointed out, white tie affairs aren’t even close to this level of formal. This reeks of “we’re better than you.”

    You asked for the answer, and I hope the message was received. You guys really must be made for each other. When your friends and family don’t come around as much as you’d like them to, I hope the pictures will keep you company, as that seems to be the most important aspect of the wedding.

    How two people ever thought this was a good idea is beyond me.

    You’re also pretty quiet about my whole explanation. Pretty lengthy explanation for someone who “doesn’t know why it’s a divisive tweet.” You cherry pick one small part of my explanation just to argue.

    You are the stereotypical scumbag Montreal fan that the rest of the hockey community snickers at.

    I’d love to know where you get your “facts” from. I’d like to see how you react to people barging in your door without identifying themselves as police.

    I feel like you’re just a low-key racist and only listen to the facts that support your twisted narrative that the cops never do anything wrong. Regardless, an innocent woman was killed. No drugs found on the premises. FBI investigating.

    No, this is the EMT worker who was killed during a police raid. The police got the address wrong, entered the wrong house, and shot and killed Breonna Taylor all while her boyfriend was pleading with the police that they just have the wrong house.

    None of the police have been brought to justice on this. Just google Breonna Taylor.

    I gave a paragraph response in the other comment dude. I’m clearly not the only person who thinks they’re divisive. Let me ELI5 for you:

    There’s a massive divide between Americans regarding the National Anthem. Kaepernick knelt amd was called a son of a bitch, unamerican, unpatriotic by Republicans in power. Fast forward a few years and this issue is as relevant as ever in light of the George Floyd and Breonna Taylor protests.

    Some Americans agree with the republicans - they say not standing for the anthem is spitting in the face of all those who served our country.

    Some Americans agree with taking a knee until we take serious steps to combat racial injustice. This is an extremely divisive topic in America right now.

    So while all other leagues have players taking knees, the NHL stood. Trump’s “thank you” comment is extremely misleading to people who follow him, the majority of whom don’t watch hockey. So to them, they read Trump’s tweet and think the NHL took a side and decided to stand rather than kneel, which totally disregards the fact that they are standing in solidarity and dedicated time before the anthem to talk about racial injustice.

    So to the republicans and Americans who believe everyone should stand for the anthem, this tweet (and the NHL standing) was a win for them. But for the other side, his “thank you” tweet was a slap in the face and is totally misguided.

    By him saying “thank you @NHL,” it leads his followers and supporters to believe the NHL took a definitive stance on the issue, which isn’t true. Eric Trump and his whole family looooove to troll the democrats on Twitter. So this can be seen as a trolling tweet.

    You may not agree that it’s divisive, but there’s a LOT of people who agree that the tweet was only meant to divide us Americans. In a time where we need to be unified and stand together, it seems Eric and the rest of the Trumps take pleasure in constantly politicizing things so that Americans are pitted against each other.

    Holy hell did you miss the point of my comment...

    It’s hilarious because the overwhelming majority of teams are in the United States. I understand it’s a Canadian game dummy. My point is saying that the NHL decided that Canada is the better option than hosting in the US because Canada dealt with the virus SO much better than the USA.

    What’s hilarious isn’t the fact that it’s in canada.. it’s the fact that Eric Trump is tweeting about the NHL standing when a major reason it’s not hosted in the US is because of how bad his father fucked up.

    Check out my response to the comment right before yours. If you were to thank Hitler, that would be divisive right? So we’ve established that saying “thank you” CAN be meant to divide.

    Now go look at my response to mrmatt_

    I don’t think they should or shouldn’t have knelt - that’s up to the players to do what they believe is right.

    His tweet is divisive because while many other sports are taking knees, the NHL stood. This is seen as a victory for Eric Trump because they didn’t take a knee. He totally disregarded the fact that they’re standing together and recognizing racial injustice. Instead, he tweeted out to the masses (majority of which don’t watch hockey) a thank you message to the NHL, almost as if the NHL took a stance on not kneeling for the anthem.

    How you don’t get that this tweet is divisive is beyond me. If Biden were to tweet “thank you NBA for taking a knee! #kneefortheanthem” it would still be a divisive tweet.
