I didn't have a rant today until I read that.  Now my rant is that I want a McRib and can't get one right now.

Find a Speedway, get two BBQ pork sandwiches for $4.  

Microwave them yourself, though. Avoid the ones in the warming oven unless you a fan of dried out food.

My rant is that the McRib keeps coming back. Every time it does I forgot how bad it sucked for the last time and I get suckered into buying another.

I got past that the first time it came back in 1988 or whenever.

At my hospital I didn't get in trouble for this.

We had a patient. Patient was literally one day from discharge, but the family decided they didn't want to follow our strict COVID procedures. You get one visitor per day. You cannot eat with the patient. Mask stays on. Take it off? You're out. Try to keep 6 feet away. Dumbass shared a drink and got COVID from a family member- contact traced and all. 4 days later the patient is dying, and the most we were comfortable with was 2 people maximum in full Isolation gear with them as they passed. Naturally, we are now extreme about our procedures.

These berkeleying idiots. Each week I get another dumbass that half of my front desk staff is honestly, too lazy or chickenE36 M3 to stop or tell off or call security over. I'm one of the few males in my facility and one of the few people that is willing to be confrontational. Each berkeleying week.

WhY CaNt I eAt WiTh ThEm??1!!/?/1

We had someone do that, and it killed their family member.

I dIdnT tAkE mY mAsK oFF!!1! ThIs Is ViOlAtiOn oF mY RiugHts!!1!1!1

No it isn't, shut the berkeley up. Leave or security forces you out. Don't berkeley with me, I feel like I'm made of scars now.

The sheer denial these people have is insane; I understand why some people are so pro-authoritarian now (Though I will ALWAYS fight against that) because in the last month we've had to forcibly remove 3 people from the facility for the stupidest, stupidest E36 M3 possible. Staying too late. Trying to claim "CoViDs NoT rEaL!!!!1!1" in front of their intubated family. Another hospital had a "protest" from a family not allowed to see a child because they were COVID+, staged outside the front and attempted to breach the floor. It wasn't getting arrested that stopped them, it was 3 of them getting COVID that stopped them. I'll even get aggressive against the unmasked in grocery stores now in full uniform. They don't do E36 M3 but run.

Honestly guys? I'd tell the scum just to go home and die, but that would mean even more work for me on the ambulances. These last few years have made me so angry.

These people are going to make the difference between killing this thing and living with it for a decade or more. If everyone would mask up and then get the shot, the thing would go away. Antivaxxers are going to do their best to make sure we all suffer. We develop multiple amazing vaccines in less than a year, each publicly available for free. It's a modern day miracle. People poop all over it on their way to 7-11 to get a microwave burrito and cigs or vapes because they don't know what's in it.

Yep. This thing is going to mutate its way into perpetual issues. It was probably always going to do that, but we had something of a chance to keep it in check.

I'm trying to support a contractor in getting a building permit for a project in my company's home county - New Castle Co.  We do the vast majority of our work in Delaware's other two counties.

Now I remember why.  The sheer amount of useless "compliance certifications", unnecessary bureaucracy, and general bullE36 M3 required is positively byzantine.

We're not building a berking nuclear power plant.  We're replacing 20 ancient water fountains in a public school and making some minor non-structural modifications to ensure they are handicap accessible.

Bob help us if we were actually trying to build something here.

Seriously, reading through the current metal buildings thread:  a project like that - even for non-commercial use on private property - would be a solid year getting through the regulatory process, with tens of thousands of dollars in professional design and engineering services required.  For a commercial property it would be even worse.

I'm a berking design professional who would stand to benefit from those fees, and I think it is insane.

I have an ingrown hair on my inner thigh. Pretty sure it is an ingrown hair, anyways. It shows up as a boil every 4 weeks; it comes to a head, I pop it and look for the hair digging around in the pore, can't find it... It always bleeds like a MOFO. I think I need to see a dermatologist for it.

That could also be cellulitis.  When I get those, before they pop I put a little zit cream on them every night and morning, with a small bandaid during the day to stop it rubbing on my pants.

I was under the apparently mistaken assumption that bro-country ended at the state line, and Florida was South New Jersey: not part of the south, but where all of the people retiring from NYC escaped to.

Been berking around for 6 berking months trying to get berking Royal Caribbean to refund the rest of my cruise fare for a trip they themselves canceled in April of 2020.

Never.  Again.  They could offer me the berking Presidential Suite on their berking nicest ship for half price and I wouldn't take it.  Way to make an excellent first - and definitely last - experience, RC.

Yup.  Good rule of thumb, more than 20 miles away from the coast and it'll start getting pretty rednecky.  Closer to the coast and the more yankee you get.
