So apparently the US Military is more progressive than the Boy Scouts!

No homosexuals for the Scouts but pedophiles and general creepers are ok. Might as well just call them the Catholic Church or Penn State!

Pretty sad, but not particularly surprising given the organisation's backers.

Hopefully they'll just die out and other inclusive groups can take up any role.

And i guess boy scouts won't be allowed to eat Oreos either :D

Yeah, y'know - little winged insects who hang around water at dusk and bite poor photographers to pieces, even though they're doused in insect repellant.

Fucking Chicago Tribune posts a question in their FB page: Do Twitter feeds spoil the Olympics for you or do you not care? And then to follow that, they post the fucking results of the Women's Gymnastics Finals that airs here tonight!

I work really hard to avoid results and it's not an easy task in today's day of instant technology and for a US paper to post that shit when they are asking a question about how their readers feel about being spoiled really pissed me off.

It's also plastered all over the front page of our local online paper. Glad I already knew the results! Interesting how when the men totally fucked up yesterday they didn't bother plastering that all over the papers!

Had to endure a guy yelling at me because he was 10 minutes late for his appointment and we couldn't see him because all the optoms had packed up and were ready to leave. Apparently that's my fault.

Not only that but the fucking useless timetabling staff have changed my timetable again for the third time. Where is the logic in publishing timetables while their still in the process of sorting them? It's not fair on people like me who need to sort out arrangements for jobs and who don't like messing people about. Surely the easiest thing to do is suspend publishing them until everything is worked out?! Luckily I haven't told my boss yet, but I don't know where I stand in the sense that they could keep on doing this right up until the first week of term. I need to change my hours over otherwise it'll affect me being able to go home for Christmas and there's several days in the diary where no more holiday is allowed - there's no way I'm staying in Northampton over Christmas, but I don't know if they'd be kind enough to make any exceptions.

I guess you're not allowed to tell the guy it was his own dumbass fault for being late. I'd never last very long in retail.

I was in Northampton this afternoon. The roads around your town centre are soooooooo aggravating.

The way he was speaking to me, five more minutes and I would have, there really was no excuse for getting that angry when it was his own fault anyway. Instead I just took all the shit he threw at me and apologised. I got an extra break out of it though ;) I'm not sure where my rights are for saying "I don't deserve to be spoken to like this" and just walking away, seeing as he didn't swear at me or anything like that, but it's kind of wrecked my faith in people. I don't see why I should smile and be friendly to people when assholes like him can't even take what really was a minor problem - that could have easily been ressolved by rebooking his appointment - without acting like a spoilt child.

Tell me about it, having driving lessons around them were no picnic either!

Bah, public reminder to self. Never start work without a deposit - no matter how much your mate guarantees the client and tells you the work's been verbally signed off to go ahead.

I am so sick of people shooting their mouths off about politics when they have no clue WTF they are talking about. The recent attack against the US Embassy has brought out the venom in a lot of people. It's nauseating.

Oh for god's sake! Now one my friends is claiming Obama is a Muslim infiltrator and is running al-queda from the White House. I seriously never thought this particular person would go this far off the deep end.
