The new management rep has the very apt last name Fuhrer and waltzed her condescending ass in to look for sister and told me to relay the message that it was "imperative" for her to speak to her. So I spin a portrait of her to sister over the phone, exaggerating a bit but apparently not that much, for sister said when she talked to her, I was not exaggerating at all in describing her bitchy self. She was condescending and bitchy over the phone, all about late rent payment. NINE FUCKING YEARS HERE and all of a sudden they're throwing hissy fits over the rent being late. NINE YEARS. There are all sorts of empty spots in the complex and the most recent addition was a tobacco/vape shop, which I was not thrilled about AT ALL. Fuck Der Fuhrer. Honestly, you marry someone with that name, you gotta expect a fair amount of ribbing. And boy is that ribbing well deserved.|
Second customer of the typically slow day is an old biddy who first wants to know what size an adult large is. It varies according to body type, I say, in so many words, because, really, unless you've seen the person you can't really determine what size they might be. Skinny, plump, fat, long, short, so many factors to take into account. Biddy looks at price and says, it's so EXPENSIVE! I say, our leotards are expensive? in honest incredulity. She says yes and I say the ones at the gym are more expensive. Oh, they're $34-35 dollars there, same thing, the biddy who failed at math says. So a $27 leotard is the same as a $34 leotard, I say, which apparently went over her head. Our adult leotards run from $24-27 which is not expensive at all. She wants the $15 cap sleeve cotton leotard in kids size for adult size and of course it's not going to be the same price. Making the $7 jump might be hard to stomach going from child large to adult x-small but child large to adult large is a big difference, it's almost twice as much fabric.
So she mumbles around for a while and leaves eventually. This is what I don't get about adults, how they're unwilling to pay for something for a child and yet have no problem blowing that same amount of money on themselves, for frivoulous things like a manicure or hair dresser or, hell, lattes for every day of the week. Hey, I'm cheap but I paid out $60 for Winnie the Pooh sneakers for niece and then added in a T-shirt she expressed interest in.
Joined a new guild in Old Republic because I am a glutton for punishment and they must mainly be on during the weekends for I've seen at the most 5 online this week and a lot of my gaming time I'm the only one. Back to the conquest grind! On one planet someone was commenting/bragging on having finished their 35k conquest points goal in about a day and made me all jealous and incredulous. Sat down to figure it out and with crafting, you can get this done in about a day if you have all the materials already. 5 companions doing 5 sets makes for 25 in 5 hours. Each invasion weapon crafted gives 500 points. So in 5 hours you get 12,500 points. You need 3 sets to reach goal which would take 15 hours. BUT the stumbling block is having the materials. To do 5 at once with 5 companions you need 300 of each three materials. That's a lot of fucking gathering lol. Or a lot of credits involved in purchasing them off GTN.
New race Togruta showing up next week for 600 cartel coins. Gotta decide who to delete to make room.
Rented It Follows and Ex Machina from Redbox. Ex Machina not bad, could have been more interesting if they'd actually employed the twist they hinted at. As for It Follows...best way to sum it up is to say It Follows the audience as they get up and leave before it's even done, begging them to come back. It's touted as a classic 80s slasher by one reviewer which is NOT at all. It doesn't rejuvenate the genre with its artsy fartsy approach, it BORES it.
