Title: Things that shit me
Post by: Joseph41 on June 27, 2017, 09:05:01 am
I live my life by certain rules. When those rules are jeopardised, I feel uncomfortable.

One such rule is that, when buying coffee from 7Eleven, I only wait if there are two or fewer people in front of me. So if I'm the third person, that's sweet - but if I'm the fourth, I'll go elsewhere.

Earlier this morning, I was in line to buy my large skinny flat white. I was third in the queue. THEN, the person in front of me completely rocked my world by making not one, not two, but three coffees, essentially making a mockery of my system. :(

What are some minor things that negatively tickle your whiskers in life?

When people walk slowly on a narrow path!!!!
It forces me to decide whether to trod slowly behind them or walk into the wet grass to overtake them.
This is worse when I'm running late, people just have earbuds in and walking 4 wide in an narrow path

When you're walking in the middle of the city and people are walking ever so slowly, and they block the whole footpath. So annoying lol.

People who smoke in no-smoking areas. If I'm in my nice, easy-to-breathe area, and you're not following the rules and smoking, I'm going to say something. I'm not an always-follow-the-rules-kind-of-guy, but I reaaallllly dislike smoking.

Or people who just start smoking ahead of you when you're both heading in the same direction. Like, I'm okay if you decide to inhale poison into your lungs while taking responsibility of whatever health issues that come with it. But at the same time, I never consented for you to blow it into my face and give me violent convulsions from the anxiety of sniffing what is the carcinogenic particles you've decided to inhale. And why do you have to smoke and walk? Why can't the smoking wait? Why make yourself tired when the short walk is quite possibly the only healthy thing you got going at that moment in time? I don't understand it. *throws books on floor*

Exactly! If they don't want us to infringe on their right to smoke, they can't infringe on our right to breathe healthy.

Alright, so uh I have this sort of conscious sort of unconscious rule I follow. When someone sneezes in the same area I'm in I hold my breath for 10 seconds. But you see, once someone sneezed 5 times consecutively with 10 second intervals ,legit, and I couldn't hold my breath for that long. I thought of that very moment for the next couple of days. Oh and this is not backed up by medical evidence just my stupidity. Now I'm hoping there are people out there that do something as crazy as this :D

Post by: mixel on July 23, 2017, 01:02:25 am
I'm a real petty person so I'm sure I could come up with a whole laundry list if I thought hard enough  ;D

This is a super specific scenario but it happens often enough and is irrationally frustrating enough that I remember it. When I'm sitting alone on the train in a row of seats behind another row where the seats have been flipped around to make two rows that face each other, and someone sits in the row facing me and flips the seat in between us around so that they're then sitting in a single row and I'm now in the group of seats facing each other. It's such a minor thing, but it pisses me off so disproportionately that whenever it happens I'm forced to think about whether I'm the one that's got an attitude problem. After years of soul-searching, I've figured out that they're the problem, not me.

Clearly I'm a very antisocial person. But so is everybody else on that train except the one creep that tries to start a conversation when I've got my earbuds in. And crucially, so is the seat-flipper, because they wouldn't flip the seat unless the idea of smashing knees with somebody sitting across from them and having slightly higher odds of actually having to interact with another human being is as unappealing to them as it is to me. That's fair enough - what makes these people assholes is the fact that they'll be antisocial with no consideration of whether other people are as antisocial as them. Worse still, it makes me an even bigger asshole if I do anything about it. Do I flip the seat back and assert myself? Obviously not; if I was that confrontational I wouldn't even have this dilemma. Do I passive-aggressively glare disapprovingly at the person sitting across from me? Maybe, it depends if there are free seats nearby and if they look like they'd acknowledge me. Am I a little bitch that cares way too much about this? Definitely.

It's a dog-eat-dog world. I guess at the end of the day, the seat-flippers are just looking out for themselves. But if it were up to me, I'd think hard about scrapping the utility of flippable seats and making every train like those ones with the fuzzy seats and shit curved windows that are somehow always too fogged to see out of, just so I can avoid the dreaded dilemma.

I can deal with slow drivers but the ones that decide to speed up as soon you get to an overtaking lane really irritate me. Today someone was going 70 in an 80 zone but as soon we hit the overtaking lane, they go straight up to 87 and I know as soon as we get back to the single lane they will go back to their slow ways. I ended up overtaking at about 95 which constitutes a loss of licence (P1 holder) but this should honestly be illegal.

Def. feel ya there...
I just overtake anyway, to show them my L plate at the back!!
Even worse are the guys that speed up and overtake you just cause you overtake them... (might only happen to L-platers, I dunno...)

Tbh I don't mind it so much. The person just wants their achievements to be celebrated and reassured of their successes when it crops up. And it doesn't do us a great disservice to acknowledge it - I don't think. Though, then again, it's probably not the best way to go about it, I'll concede to that. So that's probably where the mild annoyance comes from I guess :P

When my tutor for one of my units has my tute the hour before a lab and he consistently goes overtime and I end up losing half a mark (out of 2) for being late to my lab

On insanipi's train of thought ;)

Some Sydney trains have the chairs that you can't flip to face the other way. I'm not fussy about facing backwards (I know it makes some people sick) but because I'm annoyed I'll mention it anyway. I went to Uni today backwards the entire way.

This isn't what shit me - what shits me is that they were running late, I just noticed that with about 20 minutes until my destination they just slowed down a lot. It wasn't 20 minutes until my destination from that point. It was 40 minutes. Why wasn't there an announcement made? Don't even tell me why, just tell me when I can expect to arrive?

I was late for a guest lecture I was so looking forward to.

But whatever, I had a delicious pulled pork sandwich for lunch.

There is a massive difference between 'email me' (a.k.a ask a short question that wont take up too much of my time) vs. mark an entire practice essay which takes a significant amount of time. Teachers deserve a break (albeit short, we don't sit around and do nothing over the holidays) too.

Just saw something come up in my newsfeed about the Bachelorette. Had to log onto AN and write something in this thread about it haha.
More specifically, was a recap of the most recent (or one of the more recent) episodes, in which there was something called the "Man Games".

So like, the clips that were being shown were a planking contest, etc. - seemed to be quite physical stuff, and they were saying "only a real man can do blah" or whatever. Another thing was changing a tyre, and google also tells me they had to build flat pack furniture, and the two men who had proved themselves manly enough to make the manly finals had to build a fire.

Shits me up the wall that what is arguably a widely-watched show is perpetuating the stereotype that men need to be physically strong and muscly and do "manly", physical stuff. Like, why not have a challenge where they show their abilities to listen to their prospective partner's problems and their abilities to display compassion? Physical capabilities do not make the definition of a "man".

It realllly frustrates me aswell. she's saying that she doesn't want to be confined by female stereotypes (shouldn't swear, being 'presentable' etc.) yet she's happy to say that men should fit into her view of masculinity, she expects them to do all manual labour etc?? She shouldn't "have to call the brother in law" to do everything for her because she's an adult and she can learn these skills??

it's also quite frustrating that it encourages the perception that if you're female you cant do these tasks, and if you could, you wouldn't do it as well as a male could.

People who walk on the wrong side of the footpath. We drive on the left, so we walk on the left.

People who smoke in no-smoking areas. If I'm in my nice, easy-to-breathe area, and you're not following the rules and smoking, I'm going to say something. I'm not an always-follow-the-rules-kind-of-guy, but I reaaallllly dislike smoking.

Omg these are spot on! There used to be a lady at the bus stop that used to think smoking was ok if she wasn't under the shelter, it's not!

I also hate it when people say they don't eat breakfast because "they don't have enough time". Try getting up earlier, or not procrastinating in the morning, it's not that hard!

Two things, riding home from AN biology lecture just now:
1. People who can't walk on the left side of a wide shared pathway that clearly has a line in the middle. (the path around the museum area)
2. The guy driving on my tail, who, when i held my arm out to show i was turning right and then looked back to check he hadn't gotten closer and I started to go across to turn down my street then speeds up to overtake me. It was a one lane street and we were the only ones on it. Are you fucking kidding me. I may have flipped him off.

Happened yesterday and I presumed I was using wifi at home until I got a text from Telstra saying I was 85% over my data allowance for the month (awks when it only reset on the 26th of September).

Oh, and they get annoyed when you have to get your wallet out of your backpack to get your concession card as well. Like, either don't ask to see my concession card, or have a bit of patience when I have to take off my backpack and find my wallet lol.

I've always wondered - like, they jump on you as soon as you leave the barriers - how do they know you're actually using a concession myki? What if you were travelling on a full price one? Obviously a fair assumption that the majority of young people would be travelling on concession fares, but still.

Cyclists, you can't have the cake and eat it at the same time. To demand (which is reasonable) more separate lanes from cars and well as more careful behaviour from drivers (when they open the door knocking over cyclists on footpaths), but being negligent with pedestrians by  cutting corners and running the traffic lights.

Ugh I hate this. I always feel like I have to ride on the road because if i'm on the footpath people get annoyed at me but then riding on the road isn't safe in a lot of areas unless I want to go in the middle of the lane so people can't try and overtake me (which legally i'm allowed to) but then I get people honking and sitting 2cm behind me.
Another thing that shits me:
Riding on the road when there's two lanes and i'm on the edge of the left one and its quiet and the right lane is empty and people will move over like 5cm to pass rather than changing lanes. Like they don't know if there's going to be a big wind gust or if i'm going to wobble. When there's nothing stopping you changing lanes to overtake I don't get why people don't do it.

There is almost certainly an intersection group.  Almost all cyclists demand for more protection against drivers. A minority (still somewhat sizeable) are negligent towards pedestrians. Given that almost all cyclists complain about drivers (I don't drive myself), it's almost certainly true that members of the minority are in that group that wants the best of both worlds.

I am not bothered by people that smoke, I used to smoke a bit myself ( when I was really young like 14/15), although I'd prefer if they didn't smoke too near me. But when some of my friends who are vegetarian because they believe in the concept of autonomy, yet by smoking disregard the autonomy of humans (or even worse, people who are allergic) to have autonomy over the environment (given they can't escape) they live in to be pollution/smoke free (or minimal as possible).

Short version: spring

Long version: I was hanging out in the park today, mostly sitting on a rock, then sitting on the grass. My phone ran out of charge so I lay on the grass for a bit with my arms above my head (for maybe 15 min?) realised my arms had red spots, maybe from resting weight on them? Except I wasn't really... it got worse my arms are covered in a nice red rash where they were lying on the grass. It seems I'm allergic to grass  :( ... and I actually remembered to have my antihistamine this morning as well so that won't help.  :'(

Basically everything people on the first page said about slow walkers and drivers, once I was in a 70 zone and someone was doing 40, and it was around 9pm after work 1/2 hr away from home and I had to get up around 6:30 for uni next morning... But also drivers who speed/break laws (when it took me various attempts over 4 months to get my license). Like, people who are up my cars a$$ when I'm doing the speed limit, then speed past me (so clearly at least 10-20?km over the legal limit)... if I have to deal with people doing 40 in a 70 zone, you can deal with me doing the speed limit.

Also calendars that start on Sunday,  does anyone actually consider Sunday to be the start of the week??? It just doesn't make sense to me to do that, and I ended up sending the wrong date to someone by looking at one of those without thinking :O

Philosophy. People that drag their feet when they walk. People that yell people for being loud. Philosophy. Decisions being made that affect you without your input. People that don't understand when to leave a conversation or when you are trying to ignore them. Students that disrespect teachers. Philosophy. People that make decisions on things they do not know about. People that speak loudly when they are sitting right next to each other inside. Did I mention philosophy?

BLASPHEMY.  What's wrong with philosophy? :'(

I tell people to shut up and they're like but I'm only talking quietly. Ugh silent room not quiet room. And it's always the same people like I get one comment, but people come here to hide from teachers and talk the whole period.

When there are assessments due after the end of semester (in particular, the physics homework that we were given yesterday and is due end of swotvac, aka 2 days before my first exam). I don't have time for it because I have 3 exams in 2 days at the start of the exam period :(. It's particularly painful because it wasn't supposed to be assessable, there was a mistake with one of the earlier assessments so they decided this one would count.

Edit: Also when they give incorrect information regarding what they want you to do, and then you lose marks because you did what they said  :'(

So I've just got busted by the ticket inspectors and I'm like balling my eyes out.

How successful have people been in fighting fines?

Also since they gave me a replacement ticket which is of no use to me since in only valid till 4pm today and I'm in the city, does that mean that they remove all the credit on my current card?
Title: Re: Things that shit me
Post by: PhoenixxFire on October 29, 2017, 02:40:32 pm
Your only chance at fighting it is if you can prove you took 'reasonable steps' to have a valid ticket.

When you say remove all credit on your current card do you mean you had a myki with money? I've never heard of them taking money off them. The replacement tickets are so you don't get fined twice. (But unfortunately they only last 2 hours)

Have heard that if it's your first offence, most people are reasonably successful in appealing the fine if they write nicely to them and explain why they didn't have a valid ticket. Might as well appeal it - either you get it rescinded, or the fine stays, so you don't lose anything.

If your card that had all the credit on it is registered, you can order a replacement that'll have the credit on it.

When you have parents that refuses to settle things and force you to resort to lawyers and the police. Even though I didn't intend/knowingly get an intervention order against both my parents (I didn't even know what it was 12 years old), and their reaction hurt at the time, I've come to realise that they did so in the way they did because they never thought that they could 'lose' (can't really think of another word).

All throughout my life the only options they gave me were the lawyers or the police (the lawyers to make me broke and they know I wouldn't go the police anyway).

They were the type of parents that I wouldn't be able to talk about sexual harassment or abuse if I were ever to be in that situation with a stranger, because one of them was an unapologetic perpetrator himself and they other never stood up for me, and suggested that I was a prostitute or slut on multiple occasions.

Seriously I don't understand parents who dares you to fight them in court and only regard you on a legal level.

Things that shit me, and the unconscious/subconscious elitism that needs be discussed: when the media reports on the lives of young deceased people, and feels the need to emphasise their school or job in the headline if they have a prestigious one. Unfortunately, those people (at least most of them) will never be able to live to their potential or achieve what they set out to do, but that doesn't mean that it's ok for the media to judge these things based on the school they went to or the job they have. It's ok for the media to provide details about the person in the story (the school/uni they go to, their job, life achievements/hobbies, family), because this is what all stories about deceased people do, but the headline should only contain their age or the incident, not the prestigious school (which is a irrelevant indicator future potential especially if it's private) or their job. Having these details in the headline implies that these people's lives are more valuable as a result of going to a certain school or having a certain job, and are more worthy of our sympathy.

The only exception I have is if their school or job is linked to their death (story of over-worked, fatigued young investment banker intern in New York or a negligent school).

If me and my mates went to class, we'd keep a  tally of who found gum at their desk. If they did, they got 1 point. Person with the highest tally at the end of the year got a fun gift lol. Plus 2 points if it was extra new and sticky.

At the moment it's because school is running an incursion in the silent room, so i'm in the noisy area and there's these guys sitting next to me playing their video games, eating really stinky food and talking loudly. And putting their stuff over half of my desk. The only people who should be in here are people in senior private study. These guys are not seniors (and they are the same idiots who play computer games loudly - like, jumping and and cheering - in the silent room frequently).

I hate people. Mostly because I'm having a shit day, I struggled to get out of bed this morning, it wasn't worth it.

Try to calcualte your score from the change in WAM and ask around to work out which subject it is for :)

Things that shit me: Uni tutors/assesors that can't mark assignments properly, on two occasions this year I've had to get my work remarked by the unit coordinator since I felt like the assesor was just randomly assigning a score and not even reading my entire piece of work or not using the rubric. Fortunately both times the score has gone up significantly.

The last time round, I obliged to talk to them because it was awkward to say no since I wasn't with anyone and I was sitting down (if I was on a street, I would just walk past them). They forced me to recite passages from the Bible for 10 minutes in a public place to prove the existence of God...

I'm taller than my 12 year old brother... I'll enjoy it while I can. My dad's really tall so I'm betting my brother will end up being almost a foot taller than me  :'(
My 12 year old brother is half an inch taller than me, while I have been seriously wanting to get taller from Year 9 onwards (Did. Not. Grow. A. Centimetre.) >:(>:( The growth spurt came out of nowhere!!!

Being tall is not always fun. For the last 5 months or so, i have been growing alot and today i walked through a doorway that i have not walked through in a year, thinking it would be perfectly fine. Attually, i didn't even think about it, i just kept walking. Anyway, fun fact: turns out i am not nearly as short as i used to be, this doorway is smaller than it looks and hitting your head on wooden doorframes REALLY (Insert expletive word here) HURTS

5. Wanting to practice writings essays and doing practice tests but I just can't focus as much as I do during the ACTUAL test. like I need to study somewhere with other people and then I will focus.
6. Mosquito bites, ok today I arrived somewhere overseas and when I was in a car to my apartment, I GOT 10 FRICKEN MOSQUITO BITES ON MY LEGS OMGG (Insert crying emoji)
7. Waking up to have a dry throat EVERYDAY with like MUCUS in my mouth I have to spit out.. (IF ANYONE HAS A REMEDY TO THIS PLSSSSSSS (maybe because I am wearing retainers and they have this indelible white thing on it (is it bacteria??)
5. Try your local library, in particular find a silent area, this time of year there won't be many people studying but there is the rest of the year (especially before exams).
6. I'm building a stick insect enclosure for my brother for christmas so i've been outside the last few days. I feel your pain.
7. I have some white stuff on my retainer too, I dunno what it is though. Make sure you brush your retainer when you brush your teeth at night too, and rinse it when you take it out in the morning. The dry throat/mucus thing sounds like what happens to me when my nose is blocked and I have to breathe through my mouth at night. Maybe try sleeping more upright - like prop your pillows up as much as you can.

@Courtney2502 You're in good company...and this was just the first couple of pages of this thread.

When people walk slowly on a narrow path!!!!
It forces me to decide whether to trod slowly behind them or walk into the wet grass to overtake them.
This is worse when I'm running late, people just have earbuds in and walking 4 wide in an narrow path
 ::)
Human turtles- when you are rushing to get to a place, whether it be walking or in a car- and they ARE SOOOO SLOOOWWW!!!!!!! ( you can also feel anger bubbling inside you)


This may be a minor annoyance, but to me it KILLS!!!!  >:( >:( >:(
When you're walking in the middle of the city and people are walking ever so slowly, and they block the whole footpath. So annoying lol.
This scenario can also be applied to universities. The oblivious student.
People that drive in the right line who are L platers and people who drive too slow.

Like god damn it  10km under the limit on a sunny day.

( yes I know speeding is bad, but so is being a slowpoke as you block the traffic)
People who walk on the wrong side of the footpath. We drive on the left, so we walk on the left.

My mum keeps having a sip of my drinks. On Wednesday we were out and me and my brothers got a jug of soft drink to share and she grabbed my glass and had a drink of it first. I just made a smoothie and I had poured it into my glass and was cleaning the mixer and she had some of it from my glass.

I. Cannot. Deal. With. Other. Peoples. Saliva. On. My. Drinks.

Like it makes me feel sick. Yes I know thatís ridiculous, but it does anyway. Like to the point where I found a different glass on Wednesday and I didnít drink my smoothie (I may have stormed off into my room and slammed the door).

She knows I hate it, I always ask her not to do it, but she keeps doing it and she doesnít even ask if she can have some, like I would have been fine with giving her some in a different glass. Ugh.

More library gripes:

Iím in an area at the back of the library, where Iím sitting is a desk with 2 seats (itís fairly big though). On the other side there is a bench along the entire wall with just one person at the end. And someone comes in and sits next to me. Whhhyyy. (On the other hand Iíll probably actually do work now)

I am the same. The worse thing is that I discriminate lmao.
If it's someone I don't like or someone I find... well, repulsive, I will not touch the glass/utensil/serviette/whatever again and it can really annoy me.
That is most of the time. No sharing drink bottles (gross), no sharing utensils, no sharing lollipops (disgusting, but I have had the unfortunate experience of this happening to me by force (#neverforget lmfao)). It makes me sick thinking about it.
But! Tonight for example a friend offered me a slice of pizza that she had taken a bite out of. I ate it, including her bite mark lmao. hmmm

Uh hm, I see what you did there.

But yeah, been there before. Personally though I feel like awkwardness may be a factor involved - I sit down in my chair and that's when I start thinking "yeah maybe I don't wanna ask it anymore", which leads to the laziness. I reckon if you really need to ask your teacher a question just drop an email. Either just ask the question through that, or if you're brave enough schedule an appointment instead (you'll feel pressured to go to your own appointment). Otherwise, just ask it on this forum

It is also a forum for uni students (the majority of whom are adults), not just high school students :)

Here's a link to the forum rules in case you were wanting a refresher on what's appropriate or not on AN. Someone saying fuck in a post doesn't make a moderator's job hard or create extra work for them (unless it's insulting someone), whereas spamming does. I'd like to think we're all mature enough here to deal with a few swear words.

Have you tried listening to "calming" music like Rain sounds?
I found this helped with making fall asleep.

Also try playing Tetris, Candy Crush and/or Bejeweled 10 minutes before bed with the lowest brightness setting possible on your phone
Try it out for a month and see what happens.


These hopefully help you fall asleep better and not have to rely on your family turning off the TV. They at least close the door for you right? I make my family do that since they are all nightowl unlike me

When you take clunky public transport for one and a half hours all the way to the station (train, bus, train) without an incident, then ride your bike half an hour from the station (up hills, through traffic) without an incident, and then as soon as you're going down your driveway your bike tire slips and you impale yourself on your bike. Like, I'm literally bleeding from at least three places right now.

I'm supposed to have 2 3-hour labs for one of my units in my timetable in the next two weeks, but I only have one, and these are assessed and noone knows why I have a missing lab, and my unit coordinator hasn't responded to my email from at least a week ago :)

I guess so, but personally, if I wanted to see something positive, I'd rather see something that can positively impact the world, like scientific breakthrough with Parkinson's disease and the development of a cure, or the fact that the snow leopard is no longer on the endangered list- those are the type of news stories that never get media coverage yet have the power to bring hope to many :)

TW: suicide and pretty much everything that happens on the show.

Spoiler
To be fair the show does bring awareness to mental health issues, suicide, and other very sensitive topics but the way it's portrayed is so bad and glorifies it in a way. A girl would not simply kill herself just to have revenge. There's a lot more factors that the show doesn't really mention. Hannah hasn't been diagnosed with anything (unless this is mentioned in season two, please correct me if i'm wrong), so it just looks like 'o she's just another high school girl seeking attention'. It also romanticises suicide which isn't really correct and desensitises the seriousness of suicide. For instance, it's not really explicitly mentioned in the show but I remember when there's that montage of 'what could've been' between him and Hannah if she didn't die and the whole 'I could've saved her if I just entered a romantic relationship with her' doesn't really correspond with me. Sure love does help but there's also other options such as therapy, anti-depressants etc that could help. The whole notion of 'love conquers all' should not be included in a drama show like this and should only be represented within the rom-com genre.

The show simply uses Hannah's suicide as clickbait and a way to draw in more viewers. It should've been portrayed more differently because there's a problem within the screen industry where they think if someone has a mental health problem, then they must be super dark (ie; Dark Betty in Riverdale is an absolute mess).

Other shows portray mental health issues so authentically, such as 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend', 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' and 'Please Like Me'. In CEG, we get to see the development for Rebecca's BPD and we also get to see her misdiagnosis throughout the years and how they've affected her. In UKS, she's got PTSD but it really isn't mentioned much in the show as her determination to restart her life is emphasised. Whilst in PLM, we sees the rawness and the authentic portrayal of Josh's mum and her suicidal tendencies. Josh's mum isn't 'dark' or anything. We see her as a woman determined to make things better for her, not a victim.

@admins and @natmods: please feel free to move my arguments in a different thread or delete it altogether if you feel what I'm saying isn't appropriate at all for the site.

Spoiler
I definitely do see the need for open and realistic discourse with these aspects of life. I don't think we should necessarily constrain someone's view for drama in order for realism - As you have said it is drama and that involves fiction so nothing is forced to be true or a replication of real life. But, for this purpose I'll just assume that it is aiming to be realistic. Firstly to adress your points, "Hannah hasn't been diagnosed with anything" that is an important point, you don't need to be clinically diagnoised with anything to be struggling mentally and a lot of people do not want to be diagnoised. The fact that it makes her look like she wants more attention and also looking like "she's just another high school girl " is also a good feature as it allows the audience to see that the percieved want for attention isn't always as clear as it seems. Also the notion that romantic love would have saved here isn't perfectly clear to be true, it is definitely illustrated as an option that some people around her (not her specifically) thought to be a way out. Hence, also demonstrating how others have little to know understanding how someone truly feels. Anyway in terms of romanticising suicide it definitely isn't the first (e.g. Romeo and Juliet). Additionally, someone who commits suicide doesn't automatically have a mental illness, although not referring to Hannah specifically.

I haven't seen most of the shows you've mentioned so can't really speak to their portrayal of mental illness

Yeah, actually. It makes me really self-conscious haha
I hear my voice higher than it really is, but then sometimes on the phone at work there's an echo and I can hear myself, and my voice is, like... deep as heck and I feel like I have to pitch my voice higher, like what I feel in my head, after I hear it!
But what about singing? How is it that when we sing, we're on pitch (well, most of us), but when we talk we hear ourselves 'incorrectly'?

This is a constant complaint of mine haha. My teacher asked me today what time I get to school (because we need to talk at some point) and I was like well if I leave at the same time everyday there'll be about a half hour variation in the time I arrive ::) Last week I left at 7:10 and got to school at 8. the day after at 7:15 and got to school at 8:40. There's one bus that I have to take if I want to go to school early and it regularly doesn't show up. I think I need to start calling PTV and complaining... The problem is that it's pretty much only school kids that take that bus so they don't care. Sorry this turned into a rant about public transport haha

After politely asking to be cancelled ( or at least be able to just come for a 2nd debate given that I would be half an hour late so that I could eat something first), she still made me make a one and a half hour PT trek to a school in a shitty location on peak hour train (knowing my circumstances).

I cannot stand the inability of some students to stop talking while their teachers/fellow peers are presenting or speaking in assembly. How hard can it possibly be to be quiet for an hour? Your peers have spent hours practicing to perform for you and your teachers likely have something important for you to hear. Astounding.

hypocrisy in teachers (bear in mind I hold no grudge against them for petty things like not showing up to class on time while expecting the same of students etc)

e.g. true story:
when before anzac assembly, teachers are like "turn off your phones, I don't want to hear a sound during this assembly" etc. then during the minute silence, one of those teacher's phones went off for a good 10 sec.

They're bots used by dodgy companies, typically illegal ones or outright scams. They find forums and spam their services. They're actually a lot more common than you'd think, but the mod team pick them up pretty fast.

When all university students are talking about results and you feel left out because you still need to sit special exams (although I would like to do so as long as I don't need to do treatments in that period, hopefully my diagnosis tests are completed by then so I'll know whether I'm cleared or have to schedule treatments) :( I'm slightly jealous that others can focus on grades and I'm preoccupied with other things.

Stairs. Specifically stairs up mountains. My phone says it went up 445 floors yesterday (I wasnít carrying it though and itís not particularly accurate anyway). And Iím pretty sure it only counts going up stairs - we went down for about an hour at the end.

I can't be the only one who believes that whenever metro makes everyone take replacement buses the rest of the journey should be free...
Unrealistic, I know, whenever the replacement buses drop me off at Newport station half an hour later than planned, the fact that I still have to pay for the rest of the journey just to get to the city loop pisses me off.

Agreed, or at they should have least some form of compensation (perhaps even some of that free coffee or food that they've been handing out, that I seem to miss all the time >.> )
I know how you feel, I've been caught out on those Newport busses as well though- took an hour to get from my station to Newport the other weekend and I wasn't too pleased with it! (and I also got motion sick halfway through- not pleasant!)
I've also discovered that in a fortnight, there's no trains from Newport to Werribee (EDIT: I re-read the website aha) that weekend, which is going to screw me over big time, due to my (somewhat) poor foresight and planning, aha. :')

Picture this: Your english teacher assigns the class to write an essay to be handed in in a few days during the assessment period. As you have been focusing on finishing off your other assessments, you have not gotten around to doing the essay due at 9am the next morning. But it's fine - heaps of other people said they've barely done anything yet too! So you stay up super late to write out a cracking (jk really bad) response of about 1100 words and submit it first thing in the morning (so it didn't seem like you stayed up late to do it). You stroll into class the next day and you hear the dreaded words... "as only two of you hvae submitted a response and many have emailed me about an extension, I have extended the due date to Monday". Yep. This has happened to me at least 3 times with the same teacher (v scary, hence why I always do the homework on time). Annnnd to top it all of, tuesday comes and your essay is returned. See, that's why you hand it in on time! You get it back first so you have more time to fix it up! Nope, wrong. All that is written up the top is "please cut down to 1000 words".

EXTREMELY relatable. This has happened to me so many times. The worst part is that I can't just take it home again to improve on it with the extended due date because the teacher gives the "extension speech" AFTER I've handed mine in. SMH.

A series of unfortunate events. Despite the tragedies that befell me, I will remain an advocate of tech.

1. Was allowed to write up prac report on laptop. Decided to cos it's a pain to draw results table
2. Saving doc when laptop dies.
3. Panic ensues cos it's a sac... and auditing... and teacher's suspicions that I would edit doc at home.. and whatnot
4. Rushes home, sees saved file.
5. Takes screenshot of last time doc was opened and current time before sending screenshot and doc to teacher.
6. Made the grand decision to update laptop that night
7. Afterwards, couldn't use keyboard and mouse.
8. Sac was to continue tomorrow.
9. Tried everything under heaven and earth to fix it using touchscreen (thank god for small mercies)
10. At 12:30 am tried last ditch effort to uninstall windows to older version
11. Woke up to a normal laptop.

A few days later...

1. When laptop doesn't charge even though it says "plugged in, charging".
2. Take out charger and put it back in x infinity
3. Laptop says "plugged in, not charging"
4. Take out charger and laptop shuts down (despite having power)
5. Laptop now says 0% and shuts down whenever charger is pulled out
6. Takes out and reinserts battery
7. "Battery not detected"
8. Repeat events 2-7 in random order and somehow laptop can detect battery, but still doesn't charge. Repeat again and battery is no longer detected.
9. Died at school the next day cos all textbooks were as ebooks
10. Remembers that spare battery exists (having bought 2 batteries in case). Problem solved. Just gotta hope this battery lasts half a year, like the last did.

Pro tip to everyone else: please use the word Romani instead of 'gypsies.' It's heavily associated to sexualising Romani women and forced sterilisation. This website does a great explanation on why we shouldn't use this word.

I've restitched the bottom of one of my straps twice, and the other once. I've also had to restitch the top of one of the straps and my drink bottle holders are being held together by string (I ruined them too badly to sew them back together).

I cried over spilt milk.
I was making a banana smoothie with this new blender my Mum bought, we've only used it about 3 times, and I attached the jug and put bananas in then poured the milk in. After I while I noticed a spreading pile of white under the blender because the jug wasn't properly attached so all the milk came out. It made a massive puddle on the bench and run down into the cupboard underneath as well. I finally cleaned the bench, floor and cupboard, but then I realised there were patches of milk wherever I put the blender machine part, so I shook it and milk came out. I kept shaking it because it was full of milk. Then my mum came and told me it would be dangerous and could electrocute me, so we threw it out.  :'( .

Yeah I guess you get what you pay for haha, mine wasn't that good quality either. I had to stitch the top of one of my straps too, and tie knots in the bottom. Today the zipper finally gave way, you know how it moves without actually zipping together  :'(

Being sympathetic and listening to your friend's problems about school only to have them say that they won't listen to your problems because they perceive theirs as worse (wtf).
Sorry for the negativity but I had to get that off my chest somehow!

That seems to be kind of common.
I have a friend at school and I listen to all her rants about TV shows, school stuff or whatever, I force myself to listen even when I donít want to. But then whenever thereís something bugging me Iím not allowed to talk about it because her issues are much bigger. Maybe they are, maybe their not but regardless sometimes all I need is to talk to someone.

I got annoyed at this friend recently about this and she seems to have became much more sympathetic since I ďlet looseĒ at her.
Although I feel like I was a little to aggressive which I feel bad about now.

Woah. I did not expect a rant from me there. Lol.

As much as I should feel good that everyone comes to me with their technical problems, in the way that it makes me feel a purpose being useful, it just stressed me out.

I wasnít going to stay behind for muck up day set up after school today because I really wanted to go to my tennis training I ended up having too because everyone tells on me.

And now Iím gonna have to get to school at 7am to get everything ready for the year 12 concert and make it run smoothly because everyone else was not organised enough to get their parts done by today.
I am so damn annoyed, but at least tomorrow afternoon should be nice and fun and peaceful.

AKA people driving into the bike lane to try and skip the turning queue. Like no mate, wait your turn. Only reason he didnít hit me was because I slowed down because the bike in front of me was turning. Fkn guy just pulled right in front of me ::)

And then on the other side of that intersection a pedestrian stepped out into the bike lane whilst her crossing light was red. Whyyyyy

My school didn't really have hallways but we had a similar issue with locker bays. We (student rep council) said the year 7 locket bay was the worst & next year when we came to school the year 7 lockers were in a new spot.

Is there anything that could be dive to attack the congestion issues at your school?

When people say something ďisnít that goodĒ because it isnt the top tier.

I was just talking to a friend about the new iPhones. She is well letís just say not very tech savvy and I am a very tech savvy person.
drill into me all you want about why galaxy/pixel/whatever is better, Iím an Apple fanboy and ainít nothing changing that

So she was saying how she is getting a new iPhone at the start of next year.
She then went on to tel me that the iPhone XR isnít that good of a phone because it doesnít have a dual camera.

I know what she means but that just annoyed me, the iPhone XR although itís not the top top phone at the moment it is still one of the best phones on the market at the moment and even the single camera is a pretty good camera. She could have said ďIíd prefer the dual cameraĒ but the way she worded it saying the ones without a dual camera ďarenít very goodĒ shit me.

Lol. Sorry for that rant.

I was almost in the tree plantar because Iíd realised he wanted to pull in to the (much bigger than him, he was basically a van) spot. And he still felt the need to hit me.

I cried over spilt milk.
I was making a banana smoothie with this new blender my Mum bought, we've only used it about 3 times, and I attached the jug and put bananas in then poured the milk in. After I while I noticed a spreading pile of white under the blender because the jug wasn't properly attached so all the milk came out. It made a massive puddle on the bench and run down into the cupboard underneath as well. I finally cleaned the bench, floor and cupboard, but then I realised there were patches of milk wherever I put the blender machine part, so I shook it and milk came out. I kept shaking it because it was full of milk. Then my mum came and told me it would be dangerous and could electrocute me, so we threw it out.  :'( .


I know this is old but I feel your pain. I was making like a riverdale-esque gorgeous old fashioned looking milkshake/ice chocolate thing at work and I was using like a vintage milkshake mixer where there is no lid and I accidentally put in too much milk and it went EVERYWHERE. In the middle of the crowded cafť.  :-[

Realistically shouldn't be double+ posting at all unless there is a legitimate reason (e.g. ran out of space due to essay posting etc) for the double post or sufficient time has passed with no activity, to warrant a bump of the thread. Something like under 24 hours is definitely not sufficient time.

Also consider that asking for confirmation of rules is not related to the purpose of this thread. IMO questions of this nature should be directed either in the site-related boards or via PM to a natmod or admin. Let's get back to the thread's intent :)

Really annoying cough that doesn't go away and isn't that serious but is really frustrating cause nothing you do seems to affect it and you have to wait for it to fix itself but that sucks cause you just want it to go away but it won't and that is frustrating and sucks, but it's not serious enough to go to the doctor about it but I've almost finished my exams so of all the times for it to appear now is a really horrible and annoying time. So I have to sit through my exam tomorrow with cough irratating the back of my throat. *sigh*

I used to get a runny nose during many of my exams (including VCE), despite being not sick otherwise. Almost every exam when it was writing time, my elbow would be pinning down the page and my hand would be pressing a tissue to my nose. My other hand would be hurriedly scribbling answers into the exam booklets. Those were some real fun times.

I volunteered for a highschool "campus discovery day" (tours & activities at uni) on Friday and since the lectern wasn't fully working I volunteered my laptop to have digital stuff displayed on it & I was prompted to lend my charger as well.

At the end I asked for my laptop back and it was returned,  but it wasn't until much later that I realised my charger wasnt returned  with it.

I was hoping to get it back before my maths revision session today so I could take notes,  compare my answers for the sample exam etc. but no such luck.

I'm pretty frustrated at myself for not taking better care of my belongings, but hopefully in future this reminds me to be careful, & my charger might get handed in to lost and found

This one was not into a door opener (otherwise you would have been subject to my ranting last night haha). This was just me being an idiot - my back brakes were a bit loose and I hadnít fixed them so I used my front brakes to slow down on a hill, which Iíve been told is a bad idea ever since I started riding as a toddler lol.

Turns out that using front brakes on a hill really does cause you to flip over the handle bars. Iíve never crashed quite like that before 😂 luckily it was at 9:30pm so there was no one around. Iím actually surprised I only got a few grazes and lots of aching for my troubles haha

Once upon a time there were 5 kids in a class who were given an unimportant test to do, realising how much it affected their grade (and having been given it without warning or chance to revise) they cheated... they worked together and all wrote a paraphrased version of each other's. They got their marks back a few days later and their very biased teacher had given them the following scores (without justifying them in any way) A+, B, C, C, D. They did not live happily ever after.




P.S. this is a real life story of a current crisis... I am so pissed off by it cos i got one of the C grades (75%)... we can't say anything because we kinda cheated... but it is about 20% lower than my average and is this not a bad reflection on the teacher?

I find the present exchange thing nice (though I wish that there was more consideration for reusable wrapping), but the hyper focus on disposable Christmas merchandise irks me a bit.

I completely agree. One thing my famoly does is give voucher for things like "dinner and a movie" or a game of laser tag, so things you can have fun doing without getting more things.

Another option is Oxfam Unwrapped or something similar. Essentially the person gives a donation used to buy a goat for a family in Africa or something, and you get a card saying what has been tonated on your belhalf.

It's nice that your family wants to give you presents, so maybe by suggesting this they will be more accepting that you don't want material things.

I was about to go to sleep last night, but I heard a mosquito. I decided to turn on the lights beside me to see where it was. Turns out there were two of them. Cocooned myself in my blankets and decided to strike if they got close. Got one but couldnít find the other one. There was a stain where I killed the first mosquito and Iím pretty sure the second mosquito saw it as a warning because it decided to stay well away from my striking range. After about an hour, I decided to give up and sleep when bzzzz... the second mosquito was right up in my ear, scaring the wits out of me. It was teasing me! And it had the bravado to come so close to my ear after avoiding me that whole time. Worse still, I let it go free because I was so tired. Itís probably waiting to get its revenge after I killed its mosquito brethren.

Spoiler
"Things that shit me" #1: The face of the Ford commercials
(http://www.johnpanz.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Ford-retail-lats-thumb.jpg)
Spoiler
"Things that shit me" #2: The models in the couch commercials who are overly excited and happy to be sitting on a couch alone. When they aren't sitting on the couch, they're walking in a completely random direction which makes no logical sense.

"Things that shit me" #3: The Chanel advertisement.. I don't even know why. Everytime it comes on my brain spasms.

It amazes me how rude and stupid customers can be.

Scenario A from my shift today:

> Customer asks for me to grab him a toothpaste
> I offer to give him the direction to the dental section
> Customer says no, he wants someone to grab it for him (for no explanation why he can’t walk over to the dental section)
> I tell him I can’t leave the tills as I’m not allowed to step out of my boundary
> Customer gets mad
> I ask a co-worker to grab a box of toothpaste for this customer
> Co-worker takes about a minute to get the product as the dental hygiene section is on the other side of the store
> Customer gets mad that its taking so long
> Customer asks me if I could deliver the toothpaste to him to the coffee shop down the road (where he will be heading off later) and flings me a $10 bill
> I give back the money and say I can’t leave the shop as it is my workplace
> Customer starts swearing at me
> Co-worker gives the customer the toothpaste
> Customer throws the toothpaste and $10 at me
> When I’m done serving him, he leaves the shop.

What’s worse that I was on my lunch break and I was walking to Mad Mex and I saw him in the coffee shop and he gave me a death stare.

Honestly so terrifying and it has ruined my day. Can’t believe people like them exist.

Going to the original article linked there (here): Of the 34% that don't reply "I have always believed the world is round", nearly half (16%) say "Other / Not sure" (hard to know what that means - but notably there is no category for "I used to be unsure or believe the world is flat, and now I believe it's round").  9% are saying they are now skeptical of the earth being round, but 5% are saying they are now skeptical of the earth being flat.  Hard to count both of those simultaneously as flat earth believers.  Only 4% overall say they have always believed the earth is flat.  Trying to get at people's current beliefs by asking them the history of their beliefs seems like a bad idea.

So yes, the numbers are higher than in older age groups, which is a concern - but I'm not sure it's as bad as 1/3 sounds.

People who say "I'm not good at math, I'm dropping methods", Hell, you ain't never studied for it before. They don't do anything to improve, they don't even do one question at home and they want to drop. I actually have a friend that doesn't (Or didn't) like math, he was doing methods since it was a prereq for what he wants to do but wasn't achieving good results (getting in the 40%'s).
Now please, I'm not being arrogant but, he came up to me and asked "how do you do it? How are you that good at maths?" and I told him that I just have a talent for it, that I'm one of the students who doesn't need to study for it, but sometimes for practice, I do those really hard questions or a lot of extended responses. Then something clicked in him, he wanted to beat me, he got motivated. So he worked hard in methods, very hard, he really wanted to improve...desperately. In our Term 4 Calculus SAC, he achieved 88% which I think was the 3rd highest if I am not mistaking. This shows that, if you want it bad enough, you will improve.

Apologies if this shits you, but I think you might have a slightly skewed view of difficulty when it comes to math. This might be news to you but everyone has their unique gifts and talents, and sometimes a person can only improve a finite amount when it comes to something they struggle to comprehend. For you, math is simple. For me, art is simple. But that doesn't mean it's simple for everyone.

As for the comment "you ain't ever studied it before", I have always been one of those people who legitimately struggles with numbers. Last year I worked on maths almost every single day, spending extra time with my teacher, having breakdowns over questions, and just generally working as hard as I could to do the best I could. If my best was a raw 26, and another's best is a raw 14, is that somehow pathetic? All it means is that our brains work differently to yours. And that unique outlook is what makes the world go round. I improved, but not to that standard. So be proud of your friend and those who are motivated to work harder, but please don't be intolerant about those of us you assume just don't try at all. :)

oh no no, I'm talking about those who are not good or not improving just because they can't be bothered, sorry I should've mentioned that. I am completely aware of those who literally can't do maths, and am not saying anything about them, just the students (that I know) who have the ability to do well but don't. Sorry again for the misunderstanding!

"It is completely okay not to be good at something, but it is never okay to then not do anything about it. The first step to improving is recognising that there is something to improve. Once you've done that, then we can formulate a plan."

Those are the exact words I say to a lot of my students in their first lesson.

If there was one subject where the majority of people use the phrases "I was never good at <subject>" or "I'm not a <subject> person", it would be mathematics. The most unfortunate thing for me is that there exists an unwarranted pride in being 'bad' at mathematics. No one goes around saying how proud they are that they don't understand Shakespeare, but so many people (but not all people) will often chuckle or laugh following a statement about how they either dislike, or are not good at maths.

I couldn't imagine a world where everyone is so proud to be ignorant, so why do we do it with maths? It's such a misconception that mathematics is only for 'smart people'. Mathematics is a language. It is the language we use to describe exactly the world around us.

Like any skill, mathematics takes time to learn, and every person will be at a different level. Some will understand mathematical concepts in a matter of seconds, and some will take weeks. And that is okay. But, to then say the phrase "I'm just not a maths person" as an excuse for not being willing to improve, is not. That is laziness and what personally frustrates me.

@Tatlidil, I share your frustration but you should have better articulated your point. It did sound like that people's ability in maths, rather than their effort, is what's shitting you.

... and sometimes a person can only improve a finite amount when it comes to something they struggle to comprehend.
Have to say that I very much disagree with this statement. I don't believe that one's intellectual ability has a defined ceiling, but rather, it's the person's responsibility to build higher. The only difference is how quickly they can build, and what they are building.

Great post dantraicos! This was very well phrased. Your final intimation is merely an explanation of IQ, which mathematics strongly correlates with (at least nonverbal IQ). IQ is simply predicated upon processing speed and pattern recognition, as well as inherent logical reasoning. The concept of an arbitrary ceiling is mostly a claim of the indolent. Everyone can improve, though the speed of rectification does alter.

EDIT: Manjul Bhargava, a prominent child genius within today's mathematical field, puts it quite well, (paraphrase) "[nobody would laugh if you said you hated to read]" (just like illiteracy is frowned upon, so should it's analog in mathematics be frowned upon... there is nothing comedic or of merit about suggesting that you disliked math... it is asinine). (note: this does not mean you cannot dislike it, but you shouldn't expect applause for that)

I spent like an hour or so wrestling with TIkZ (LaTeX picture drawing thingamabob) to draw a conical flask because I had a genius inspiration for a rates of change question. I even pulled out \(y-y_1 = m(x-x_1)\) to make it look soundly aesthetic...

...only to realise that the topic got pulled out of the syllabus and moved to extension 1 maths instead :'(

What shits me is the lack of screens at the myki barriers on Elizabeth St at the mo. My trains typically come off Platforms 8, 9 or 10, so guess who's playing train platform roulette until they're back! 😅

Late enrollment means that I basically get all the worst slots (I'm looking at you, ENG1003 Prac, with your 6pm-9pm slot), and no one is going to want to switch into those slots, so I'm stuck with a nasty setup. >:( And it's not even my fault.

The hoping that you won't be at uni past 5 ordeal is all too real for me- I've been allocated an afternoon lab that finishes at 6 this semester (after a morning lab too. Ew.), even though they could've allocated me to one on the previous day where I only have a single workshop :')

Heaps of fun.


They gave away a bunch of flights, accommodation and tours as prizes.

Disney decided to be cheap give away a plastic lightsaber.
They are the biggest company there. Yet they have the cheapest prize.

And I'm not really either, so I can't really give you advice, but I think one thing that helped me feel less worried about it was that the career counselor at my school said we are going to change careers many times in our life and described choosing a path/career/job now to be just a first stop in a longer journey.

omg so like:

- people who don't know how to squish onto a tram and take their bags off and put it in between their legs
- not knowing when to give an injured/elderly/blind/pregnant person their seat
- not knowing that they need to get off the tram to let someone out, and then come back on the tram (the tram's not running away chill)
- not being very loud if you are on a busy tram and poLITELY ask to get through
- not pressing the button or yanking the string to tell the driver that you want to get off at the next stop (i do it all the time just in case, some tram drivers skip your stop)

Absolutely love elections season. Was running to the station and was stopped by about six or seven people asking me if I knew who I was voting for. Kindly excused myself of course (because I was clearly trying to catch a train). I get right to the platform just as the train does and all it was took was one more pamphlet to be shoved at me for me to have to wait for the next train.

At recess I had a persimmon, (which is a type of fruit that looks sort of like a tomato and tastes sweet and delicious). I put it on a table outside the bathroom where I always stick my books/lunch/etc when I go to the toilet. When I came back it was gone and I was so sad.  :'( We hardly ever buy them because they are normally expensive, but we found them for a reasonable price at a market. Someone said they saw a group of boys take it, so they were probably throwing it at each other. It was probably an overreaction but I was really sad.

Such a tragic moment.

That's when you just have to go and re-fill the cup. Re-using the same tea bag gives the brew and extra something, that's for sure.

If you know the parking by Rowe St, Eastwood, youíll know how narrow the spaces are. The council knows it as wel, so to stop congestion, they try to enforce the ďFront End Parking OnlyĒ rule.

Whilst on my way with my fam today, some guy was trying to reverse park into a space and holy fuck, there was about 10-20 cars just waiting for him to park. The amount of congestion it causes makes me wonder why they donít enforce a fine for anyone who reverse parks into a space.

I always get stressed if I am sitting down on a tram or something because I want to stand up to let an elderly person sit down but then I worry that if they are not that old they might be annoyed that I think they look old.

This thing is so real it shits me: When you are faced with the moral dilemma of forcing yourself to show extra respect to someone who is not your ethnicity or a certain ethnicity and consequently disregard the individual who has the same or "widely accepted" ethnicity.

I go out with the child I babysit (who is in a wheelchair) fairly frequently and this happens probably every second time we catch public transport. It's the people who glare at her when she is being noisy while sitting in the seating designed for wheelchair users that really annoys me!!
