Yeah, the local priest once asked me to go on an advent.

I thought he meant adventure.

That was quite the disappointment.

I hate how I can't even tell my own parents why I'm so mad so they just assume I'm an asshole. I can't imagine how they would react if I told them about all the crazy shit that happened just this week.

Some stupid bitch at my job today asked for a refund cause her coffee was too cold and said she didn't want her drink remade, only to then demand it be remade and then tell my coworker "he doesn't understand English, does he?" After I got confused as to what the dummy wanted.

She's lucky I was at work and wasn't off the clock.

You have to deal with some pretty irritating people in that line of work. Some guy tried to arrange a fight with my friend's manager through her over requiring masks.

I honestly do not get why people are so angry about wearing a piece of fabric over their mouth and nose. Like I get it can be annoying(like I wear glasses and they constantly fog up) but like, get over it.

Whilst most people don't have valid reasons, there are obviously some for who masks are problematic - As a autistic person, i don't particularly like the feel of most masks on my face. Technically speaking, I am legally exempt (in the UK) for that reason, but i've just got a mask in a nicer feeling material and even came with a dinosaur print on it (which is pretty neat).

I guess that was a long-winded and convoluted way of saying "Remember that not everyone can manage wearing them, but also, if I can manage it with my issues, neurotypical/able-bodied people should be able to".

Nah, the Christmas season starts on November 11th at 11:01 am. Sure, you have from October 31st to then to hang up the Christmas lights and get your outdoor decorations in order, but I do not want to see any fucking Christmas trees or hear any Christmas music until after The Last Post and The Rouse have been performed on Remembrance Day.

People like her prove Aurrementera wrong on their claim that only 5% of americans are racists. I am too old and too brown to accept that idea and I've had way too many people either view me in their head as a low wage immigrant or criminal to believe that.

This comes one day after a friend of mine's mother called me a lazy Mexican and asked him if I even work at all, despite the fact that I work two essential jobs, 52 hours a week, while she works 15 hours a week cleaning out adult diapers. I'm not about to be disrespected by someone whose job involves clearing shit.

Oh yeah there are those with legitimate reasons to struggle with mask wearing. My post was more directed at those who are perfectly capable of wearing a mask but choose to constantly refuse to and act difficult about it.
