>new work out routine

I hate working out, but I've always done mostly manual labor. my job has historically been my exercise routine


 No.1224

>>1223

I regret working out yesterday tbh. I took a route on the terrible aisles with the new bags. I want those bags gone. They make the lives of everyone who comes in contact with them worse. It was funny there were people visiting from the business side of things and they were over there talking about the new bags. All I heard them talking about were positives. Me and everyone around those bags made sure to complain loudly about them. I'm sure those pieces of human garbage don't care that our jobs are made much harder because of those bags though. All you could hear them saying is oh how nice it is for the truckers. Not only is lifting them a pain, but getting carts around carts that have those on them is near impossible. It holds everything up.


 No.1225

>>1224

>the big bags are great because truckers

figures. the drivers probably don't really handle the stuff anyway. they probably have pallet jacks or something like that. 1 bag or 2 is the same thing when the base unit is 1 pallet. and if they did have to handle them, then they would probably start griping and it would go down to a lighter bag


 No.1226

>>1225

Yeah getting them onto the truck is a lot easier than getting them up onto the cart, and the truckers don't have to deal with everyone else trying to pull bags for their routes. What's even sadder about this whole thing is that our manager wants us to start loading the trucks too because the truckers take forever to load trucks. Our manager says it can be done in 10 minutes, and they can take upwards of 30 minutes.


 No.1227

>>1226

what a load of crap. it's because a lot of truckers are lazy, and a lot of them genuinely believe it's not their job (even if it is) to handle the goods. they believe it's only their job to transport them. don't fall for it not that you have a choice in the matter


 No.1228

>>1227

It's obscene how well this company treats these truckers. We are told that the truckers are our customers which is a load of crap. We are more like coworkers that work different shifts, only difference is the truckers work for a different company that is contracted to haul the stuff we receive and organize for them. Our job should be to do our best to make their job go smoothly without being a detriment to our own work.

I was thinking of buying something for myself with my first paycheck, but after thinking about it there's nothing I really want. Thought about getting some more RAM for my PC, but I took a look in there and the fan+heatsink of my CPU blocks 1 of the slots. I'd only be able to add 1 stick which isn't worth doing. So far I've spent 1/4 of my paycheck paying tithing and putting gas in my car. I guess it may be a good thing I can't come up with anything to buy.

No such thing, tbh

Nice. The last thing you need if you have a physically demanding job is poor footwear. I speak from experience. A $20 pair of shoes from WalMart used to last me at most 2 months. An $80 pair of New Balance would last me a year or more. I don't miss that job.


 No.1278

Well…things just got a little weird. That guy I've had some problems with txted me saying he wants to talk to me tomorrow if possible. I don't really think we have anything to talk about, and if we do he can say it to me in a txt. We already tried this, and if I can't trust his word to begin with there's nothing he's gonna say to me face to face that's gonna change that. Then there's the fact for us to talk tomorrow he's either gotta call me or we gotta meet somewhere. I don't feel like meeting him anywhere, and I'm not inviting him to my house. I haven't decided what I should even say.

>>1277

>If you build it, they will come

Now will they stay? I hope so. OC is a good way to get a board going in the right direction

>The last thing you need if you have a physically demanding job is poor footwear

It's funny this new girl got hired, and I saw her walking around in those big brown hiking boots girls wear for fashion sometimes. In my head I was like she won't be wearing those for more than a couple days. 2 days later she's wearing running shoes like the rest of us.

He says he wants to talk at the activity. I don't usually go to regional activities because it's a 20-30 minute drive and I don't really like going alone to begin with. My friend says he will go, so I'm gonna go with him. Well everything is putting me in position to make this happen, so I guess it's gonna happen. I highly doubt anything is gonna come of this.

well, i hope it all goes well, hex - and no blood is drawn. it should be interesting what he has to say. it might be about your calling that you just stepped down from


 No.1281

I'm assuming the bishop told him what I said when I asked to be released from my calling. If so he knows that I noticed his body language change, that hes avoiding me, and that he's been pursuing the girl he told me he wasn't gonna pursue. If he was gonna talk to me about my calling I don't think he would be asking to speak in person, but I could be wrong.

>and no blood is drawn

If blood is drawn it will be his, and he will have thrown the first punch. He won't though. He's a ponyfag. It would be the biggest mistake he ever made since cracking his skull open. He cracked the back of his head open once, and you can see the scar. He probably shouldn't ever fight anyone if he can avoid it, let alone someone like me. I've been in my share of fights, it's how I got expelled from high school.

>I've been in my share of fights

I've never been in one, ever. For one, I try to avoid confrontation (sometimes to a fault), but mostly I've been told by enough people that I believe it that I look too intimidating - that I look like I could mop the floor with you - even though anyone who knows me knows I would try to avoid doing so. I think it's my German ancestry.


 No.1283

>>1282

All of the ones I was in could have been avoided. All through school I got in fights. Kids would say something to me, and if I would have let them talk nothing would have come of it. And I did, for a while. Eventually I decided they talked too much.


 No.1284

>>1283

I am not looking forward to this. I really don't have anything to say to the guy. I have a pretty good feeling of how this is going to go. The most likely scenario is that he's going to lie and make excuses. He isn't approaching me out of genuine desire to make things right, he's approaching me most likely because the bishop told him we have a problem. The thing is he knew we had a problem before the bishop said anything. It doesn't get much more obvious than it was.


 No.1285

>>1284

I would say that he might surprise you and that it could be something completely unrelated, but from the sound of things, you've been right about this whole situation all along. So I won't blow smoke up your ass. Instead I'll just say hopefully it's not a tragic evening, and don't get into any fist fights with your church members.


 No.1286

>>1285

>I would say that he might surprise you and that it could be something completely unrelated

Would be nice if it was unrelated even though I still would rather not talk to him about anything at all, but we haven't spoken to each other in weeks. He only decided to txt me after I told the bishop and the bishopric member whose house we hold the activities at that we have a problem. The only thing I can come up with is that someone told him what I said in hopes that me and him can work it out. I'm guessing it was the bishop because it makes the most sense. The problem is that whoever told him, though their intentions were good, probably made things worse.

Something like this doesn't get worked out because someone from the outside makes 1 of the people feel like something has to be done. That feeling should have come naturally, but that's only true when the person did nothing wrong. In this scenario it's pretty obvious he knew he was doing something wrong, and felt ashamed/guilty but not enough to stop what he was doing and consider what he was losing by doing it.


 No.1297

I was correct. I got him to admit I was correct, but we didn't talk for long and he didn't apologize. There is so much I wanted to say, but there really wasn't time to say it. I don't know where to go from here, but I'm not going to think about it too much.

Even if I am completely over that girl, there isn't anything that is gonna change that he lied to me. He didn't apologize for it either. I didn't sleep last night, my brain wouldn't shut off. Trying to decide how to approach things going forward. According to him that girl thinks I resent her, which is fine with me. I don't, but I should. If she doesn't have the courage to talk to me, then she can think whatever she wants to think. Apparently they have been talking about how to deal with me ever since I stepped down from my leadership position. The way he was talking it sounded like she wanted him to talk to me, but that doesn't seem likely to be the cause for our conversation. It could be a contributing factor, but I'd still guess the bishop mentioned something to him.

 No.1304

Assuming they continue talking behind my back she's gonna know that I know what she said to the bishop about me soon. If she thinks I resent her now, just wait until she knows that I know about that. I may have dodged a bullet anyway. I heard a rumor that after her emergency surgery she lost the ability to have her own children. If that is the case it just shows I have a much greater purpose than to be tied down to her.


 No.1305

>>1304

>rumor that after her emergency surgery she lost the ability to have her own children

ah, that's a really big deal. if that's the case, she might have been trying to "do you a favor" by keeping herself away. and in my experience, when a girl thinks she's doing you a favor by staying out of your life, she's fucking right, and you should let her stay out of your life


 No.1306

>>1305

I'd think if she thought she was doing me a favor there would be no need for her to be telling anyone she's uncomfortable around me. I did nothing to make her feel that way to begin with. It would be easy to be straight with me, I'm like the most gentle guy around even though I may not look that way at times. She's known me long enough. I don't think I'll ever know her reasons for anything since she seems to be afraid to talk to me. It's funny that guy told me he thought I was gonna deck him. I was just like "as much as you would have deserved it, I wouldn't do that".

Another easy day. Good thing too because I didn't sleep last night either. My body is starting to break down from the lack of sleep. The physicality of the job + my lifting routine is too much without sleep. My back aches again. One of my fingers on the left hand is injured now too. Probably a minor sprain, but that could be kind of a tough thing to heal. Not sure what I did to it. The owner of the trucking company bought the entire team donuts today which was pretty cool. There was enough that I ate 3 of them. 2 on break, 1 as I was leaving work. Not gonna help me burn fat, but I'm not gonna pass up free donuts with how hard I work every day. Sadly I won't get much sleep tonight either unless I skip self reliance class. As tempting as that is, I'm gonna keep my perfect attendance.

Does anyone know if these flags (whichever design) were ever used?

They fly one at Ensign Peak. I heard that the flag comes from a description of a flag that appeared at Brigham Young's funeral. The description was from a gentile though and referred to it as the "Flag of Mormon Supremacy" so it could just be all bunk, not that that title isn't cool lol. It's just that the only mentioning I know of ever regarding this flag design is from this one excerpt.

The white field with blue stars is the one flown at ensign peak. I'd expect since that one is actually flown at ensign peak it must be the one people think is legit however the origin of the flag came from interpretation as far as I know. Part of the story involved the flag being folded up and placed inbetween the arms of Brigham Young and him being buried with it. So unless we dig up Brigham Young's grave, I don't know how you'd find out.

Anyone know anything about it?

So much for my easy work week. I just had a route that probably made up for how easy the rest of the week has been. 45 boxes of 1000' cat 6 cable. I was exhausted after picking all that up. It's only about 30 pounds a box but when you do that consistently for 45 boxes and walk each of them to a cart it adds up quick. Someone is doing one big wiring job.

>>1327

Very interesting. That's the first I've heard of it, but I'm only just over a year converted to the church so there's a lot I don't know.

I think those also existed at the same time. Deseret had no official state flag and plenty of variations of flags existed as symbols of the land.

It's just that if you search "mormon flag" aswell as go to Ensign Peak (Ensign meaning flag or banner, ensign peak being where Brigham Young looked over the salt lake valley and they supposedly flew a flag over) you'll see the blue and white flag I'm talking about flying at a memorial at the base of the peak.

Yeah, I picked 20 boxes of it off the racks and I thought I was done. Looked at my device, and I see a bunch more. Walk to the end of the aisle and I was just like "oh no wonder that was only half of it". They couldn't fit all of it in the aisle, so they stacked the rest of it over on the end. I'd guess that was probably the heaviest, most expensive route I've picked. About $7500 worth of cable based on the price I can find for that specific brand. And of course there was more on that route than just the cable.

I'm thinking I'm gonna buy a shotgun pretty soon. Looking at what I can get for what prices right now. I like the looks of the Mossberg 590a1 with the 18.5 inch barrel. I haven't done too much research yet, but that may be what I end up with. Gotta either find an FFL to ship to or wait for the gun store near me to re-stock. They had 3 of them in their warehouse a few days ago, now they are all gone. I almost bought one right then, but decided to wait until next paycheck at least so I don't have to take out of my savings account.

My first week getting under 20 hours of work. I got 19.5. I also finally got an opportunity to tell someone I'm a Mormon. It was the cute girl that trained me. She mentioned beer, I told her I don't drink anymore, and she asked if I used to drink a lot. So I told her I'm a Mormon convert. I had decided a while back that she was one of the people there I'd be willing to tell if it came up. All she really said is that it's good to avoid drinking, but as we left the break room she stayed with me instead of going to the back of the group. We talked some more about work related stuff. The more I'm around her the more I feel that I need to find a white Mormon girl before temptation consumes me. I don't think I've ever been so attracted to a girl that isn't white.

This one is supposedly pretty reliable

<Mossberg claims the Model 500 is the only shotgun to pass the U.S. Army's Mil-Spec 3443E test, "a brutal and unforgiving torture test with 3,000 rounds of full power 12 gauge buckshot". (The updated 3443G specification requires a metal trigger guard, so only the Model 590A1 variants, which have a heavier barrel and use metal trigger groups instead of the standard Model 500's plastic trigger groups, will fit the requirements.[3]) The 500M MILS have the metal trigger group, and the heavier 20 in barrel.

>what are you doing hex?

When all your plans crumble in front of you the easy path starts to become very tempting. When the ones in my ward that I meet don't see what I am, and what I have the potential to be it is very easy to give in when someone does seem to see you as a light in the darkness of this world. I'm going to do my best to not give in, but it's going to be really hard right now. She has all the features I want, except for the one that is the most important. It's a hard position to be in right now, I only started to be around girls again last year so patience to push through the failures and not take the easy way out is hard to come by.

I'm not too worried though. The problem with girls outside the church is that I am almost guaranteed to hate their thoughts on politics and morality. Some of them can be saved, but the likelihood isn't very high. I've already promised not to have sex before marriage by joining this church, that isn't gonna work with a lot of girls outside the church unless that's already how they are possible here because she doesn't seem like a whore, but how likely?.

How likely is it that I'm gonna find a girl that not only wants me but wants to convert for me? I definitely didn't choose an easy path going this route, and most will not want to follow me down this path. I also don't like the idea of being the one with the most gospel knowledge in the relationship. I need a girl that is fully indoctrinated into it, not one that could break free of it easily. Huge problem outside the church is that marriage holds no value anymore even among other types of Christians. The LDS church is the only church that sees marriage as an eternal thing, so huge reason to stick to girls born into this church. So as long as I keep in mind all the problems with going outside of the church to find a woman, I should be able to remain steadfast in attaining my true goal.

Today was very interesting. We got a couple new cute girls added to the ward. I was released from my calling during sacrament meeting, as I requested. The guy back from argentina was called to take my place. I was feeling mostly alright until my name was called to be released, that hit me harder than I thought it would. I got over it after I helped to administer the sacrament to the congregation.

Skip forward to the last hour, and I head to elders quorum. The elders quorum president asked to speak with me before the meeting began, and I agreed. We walked down the hall and he asked me if I would be willing to serve as the new elders quorum secretary. I agreed, and was ordained to the position at the start of the quorum. It seems there is a plan for me in this ward. He had no idea that I would be released from my calling today.

Just out of curiosity, what are the elders and what is the elders quorom?

>>1346

So there are 2 priesthoods within the LDS church. The Aaronic priesthood, and the Melchizedek priesthood. They are both divided into priesthood offices, and the offices basically tell you what the responsibilities of holding that office of the priesthood are. Elder is the office you get assigned to once you acquire the Melchizedek priesthood.

The Aaronic and Melchizedek priesthood are both the same priesthood, except the Aaronic is considered more of a preparatory priesthood, and there are some things that become possible only through acquiring the Melchizedek priesthood. Like giving priesthood blessings for example is something that you need to be an Elder for.

Elders quorum is the 3rd out of church for the men of the church. Girls go to relief society instead because they can't hold the priesthood.

Yeah, they are both pretty similar as far as structure. We just have another lesson kinda like Sunday school, but we can target things more specific to men and women by dividing up for the 3rd hour. I'd imagine men get the lesson about the dangers of pornography more than women for example. We can really get into the concerns of each group better. I think it's good to divide up like that so we get to know each other better as men and women as well.

I only accomplished 1 out of those 2 things. I don't think I even slept last night. This is looking like another easy work week, besides that I had to deal with those bags I hate. My wrist and elbow ache now. Those bags cause me nothing but pain. I was told I may be surveyed about them at some point because I've actually been in that aisle a few times.

Just ordered a shotgun to an FFL near me. Should ship within the next 3-7 days. The sooner the better, can't wait for it to show up. Ended up going with that 590a1 18.5 inch. I was tempted to get the 20" just because the gun store near me stocks a ton of those with all the extra bells and whistles. I think shorter is probably better though for my purposes. It also opens up some more options for switching out the barrel from what I've read. I could get a hunting barrel or something if I feel like I need one. Saves me some money too. Instead of paying $600+ I'm paying 540ish depending on the FFL fee.

The FFL I'm transferring to doesn't list their fee anywhere, but they are a smaller shop. They used to do free for your first transfer, and $15 every transfer after. Not sure if they still do, but if they do that will save even more money. I've also read some conflicting things about tax, so price may be lower depending on that. Won't really know until I go to pick it up, but I planned to spend the most I can imagine it being and it will likely come out to less than I'm expecting.

Yeah it better be as cool as it sounds, I wasn't really planning to buy it yet but the gun store near me hasn't restocked them in 18.5" and budsgunshop didn't have many left in stock. So much for the money I put into my savings account. Cost me 2 paychecks and a little more, and I'm not done paying for it most likely. Luckily by the time it gets here I'll have another paycheck into my checking account, and I'll move the majority of that money into savings to put it back where it was. I've spent a bunch of money this week. Gas, couple new button up shirts(gotta look good for the girls coming home from school this summer), and a shotgun.

Yeah, I'll consider it my gift to myself for my birthday and getting a job. Everyone I have ever known gets themselves something nice with their first paycheck. Nice thing about getting it this way is it does save money compared to buying it at my local gun store, so probably better that I didn't wait for them to restock.

To get it at this price at my local gun store you have to go in and order it because they don't keep them in the store; they hold them in their warehouse. Then you have to pay with cash or debit with pin. Costs $30 more if you order it on their site to their store from their own warehouse. Ridiculous. Ordering it to this ffl I get the gun for the same cash/debit price without having to make 2 trips to the gun store.

Another easy day at work. Probably won't get 20 hours this week. Scored a free Gatorade though. We aren't supposed to bring anything but closed containers of water into the warehouse. I found an unopened bottle of Gatorade hidden under one of the carts the boxes were sitting on when I went to get a box for my route. If you tell a manager about stuff like that they have you throw it away. I actually don't know if that's true of unopened stuff but why take the chance?

It does make sense. It was the last major milestone in my spiritual progression besides marriage. I can still txt them if I feel like it, but not having lessons with them weekly is a major loss. I've fallen completely off of my studying besides what I learn on Sundays. I know that's my own fault but all these changes in my routine are not making it easy to stay on it like I was. The thing that's unfortunate is that all of this is happening when things are at their toughest. I never expected it to be easy, but it seems like things only continue to get more difficult. I look back to when one of the missionaries told me she doesn't know how I deal with all of it and now it's even more challenging than before. I don't have as much support around me as I did then either.

The only path is to move forward. I won't focus on it too much. Luckily with this job I'm too tired to really dwell on what bothers me. My ability to analyze things to insane levels of detail has been greatly diminished. There are still the times when I feel the pressure, but my focus has shifted a bit. I have to save money, and get a better job than the one I have above all else. I'm basically hoping everything else just kinda works itself out, but I know the likelihood of that is not very good. I've always said that unless you actively pursue the things you want you will never get them.

I just don't know what my next move should be, especially now that I'm more tied down to this ward through my new calling. I had thoughts of going somewhere else when I knew I was going to be released. I guess we will see what doors open for me through this.

Once self reliance class is over I can completely avoid him as well besides when I go to the ward activities. Sadly things went the way you would expect last night in my self reliance class.

Told 2 more of my coworkers I'm a Mormon today. One said that he grew up Mormon, that he's sorry to hear that I chose to convert and that he had nothing good to say to me about it. He told me he fought his bishop. I don't see why that should taint the religion, if you really grew up living the gospel you should learn pretty quickly that people are imperfect. Nothing I can do about that though, it's his decision to let someone else ruin something for him. On the good side of things our manager had sandwiches delivered for break time. Some good stuff. I had a steak and scrambled egg sandwich, a ham and cheese with eggs overeasy, and another sandwich with eggs overeasy and cheese.

They were good sandwiches. I probably ate $30 worth of food. Their stuff isn't cheap, and he got it delivered through their catering service so I'd assume he spent some decent money doing that for us. I took preworkout before work because I was up until like 10 pm last night, so for the first hour or so of work I was going hard. I was sweating like crazy. By the time break hit I was ready to eat. I don't think I've ever worked so fast. That preworkout is good stuff.

I ate my first sandwich so fast my coworker couldn't believe it, me and him both got a second one and I finished that before he finished half of his and he said he was full. I was like "man I'm still hungry". He was like "no you ain't, no way". I asked him how much longer we have until break is over and he tells me about 3 minutes. I ask him if there are more sandwiches behind him and he tells me there are a couple. I go grab another sandwich, and eat it before break is over. I could have eaten a couple more tbh.

I almost thought another drive died on me today. Not in my computer this time, but my network firewall. I have a little pfsense firewall box on my network that I use as my router. I lost internet randomly, so I turned on the monitor I have connected to it and it said "no boot device found". I don't have the os installed on a real drive right now for a couple reasons. First I tried using ssds, but any time the power went out the cheap garbage ssds died.

Apparently most cheap ssds aren't made to handle power failure gracefully. I have my computer on a battery backup, and the firewall is on a battery backup too but I don't have the proprietary cable required to allow the firewall to monitor the battery level and shutdown when it gets too low. The other options were a regular laptop hard drive, or a usb flash drive. I went with the flash drive, and set the firewall up to limit writes to the drive since flash drives have limited writes.

Downside to that is all logging happens in RAM, and is lost when the firewall is rebooted or shutdown. Been going strong for over a year now. I almost thought the flash drive finally died. Luckily, I pulled the plug, plugged it back in, booted it up, and it was fine again. Who knows what happened to cause it to randomly restart itself like that. I have limited knowledge of freebsd, so I have no idea what could cause that.

Yeah. It has a bunch of good stuff for lifting. Caffeine and creatine mainly though. It has 275 mg of caffeine.

Yeah, with how reliable flash drives are you would think the same would be true of ssds. Nope.

>Researchers subjected the 15 SSDs to more than 3,000 fault injection cycles in all, and found that 13 – including "supposedly 'enterprise-class' devices" exhibited failure behavior. All of them lost some amount of data that researchers had expected to survive the fault. Two units "became massively corrupted, with one no longer registering on the SAS bus at all," while another saw one-third of its blocks becoming inaccessible after eight fault cycles.

>Overall, researchers observed five failure types: bit corruption, shorn writes, unserializable writes, metadata corruption, and dead devices. "The block-level behavior of SSDs exposed in our experiments has important implications for the design of storage systems," according to the researchers. "For example, the frequency of both bit corruption and shorn writes make update-in-place to a sole copy of data that needs to survive power failure inadvisable. Because many storage systems like filesystems and databases rely on the correct order of operations to maintain consistency, serialization errors are particularly problematic."

>The researchers' conclusion: "SSDs offer the promise of vastly higher performance operation; our results show that they do not provide reliable durability under even the simplest of faults: loss of power."

I'm gonna be broke for a while on this small paycheck. I just spent $30 more on garments that I didn't expect to buy. Whites don't get washed enough around here. Today I was left with 2 sets of garments, or what should have been 2 sets. 1 to wear today, and 1 would be for tomorrow if I could find the boxers that go with the undershirt. I can't. I checked in the load of whites that got washed last night, and I only found 6/7 that should be in there.

That means I'm missing 1, and I have no idea where it could be. I wasn't really in any danger of running out since they got washed last night, but I'm too close for comfort. That stuff still needs to go in the dryer. If I had to change out of the ones I'm going to wear today, I wouldn't have anything to change into. I don't usually do the laundry since I still live with my parents, and it saves them money if I wait until all their stuff is in and just wash it all together.

So I ordered 3 more sets which puts me at 12 sets as soon as those show up. I would have just ordered 5 more to put me at 2 weeks worth, but I'm already low on money. I shouldn't ever run out of sets as it is, but getting this close bothers me. I'm gonna have to figure out what happened to that pair of boxers. It probably ended up in someone's drawer somehow, or it's in a pile of stuff in the laundry room just sitting. I'm not about to go through everything down there.

Went to the activity tonight. It was a full ward activity so it was at the church. Wasn't really worth going to besides getting to eat a bunch of sweets, which is the last thing I really need to be doing. Only 3 girls showed up. 1 unattractive, 1 hideous, 1 fat and has a boyfriend that she came with. We watched some short videos, and had a little discussion for 30 minutes.

Then we did some cupcake decorating. I spent about 20 minutes doing that and eating candy/ice cream then I spent about 10 minutes hanging out with the missionaries. I took off pretty early, not much for me there tonight. Ponyfag still avoids me. I avoid him as well.

It's really awkward being around him though. When our eyes meet he looks so guilty and ashamed of himself; as he should. I don't get why he feels that way, he made his decision. I wonder if she rejected him, and now he has to live with the fact that he threw a good friend away for a girl that wasn't ever going to be interested in him. I can tell it eats him alive what he did. I don't think he's a totally bad person, but a snake is a snake.

She didn't show up, and apparently she was supposed to. Her new calling is to help out with the ward activities, which sucks for me tbh. I actually still go to those. Interesting that she didn't show up though, it really does make me wonder if he got rejected. He was asked to give the opening prayer, and the tone of his voice was that of a broken man. Can't say he doesn't deserve everything he gets.

>>1394

>You hate to spend more money for something like that but not spending it just becomes too impractical

Yeah exactly. It's good to have plenty of backups, but I really would have liked to hold onto that money. A week and 5 days worth of garments should be plenty I hope, I don't think we normally go as long without washing whites as we did that time. That was a week of not washing whites. I ended up finding that last pair of boxers, apparently it got washed with that load of laundry instead of the one my other stuff got washed in. Who knows how that ended up happening.

I almost forgot, on Sunday I was talking to the woman whose house we would host the activities I used to lead, and she was saying she's pretty sure that it didn't work out between them. I assume that means he got rejected. I didn't ask any questions because I don't really care. She didn't know about what he did, or the part about her going to the bishop on me. She wasn't happy at all about either one of those things. She told me I didn't deserve that kind of stuff at all. She said what he did was dirty, and that what she did was rude because I did nothing wrong. She calls me her favorite guy. I hate that I had to leave my calling.

>although it might take a while depending on how strong any feelings were

Any feelings I had for her were instantly gone when I found out she went to the bishop on me. I just don't like her. The feelings I have for her are the same as I have for the ponyfag. I don't want to talk to them, I don't want to see them, I don't want to be around them. The bridge has been burned, and it won't ever be rebuilt. Even if she changed her mind about me, and wanted to go on a date I'd tell her the same thing she told me. "I don't think that would be a good idea". Then I'd drop the "I don't feel comfortable around you" bomb on her ass straight to her face unlike her choice to say it to the bishop.

>Did you get a chance to ask them for certain about their rules

No, I didn't even think about it. The more I think about how things have played out the more I think that I'm just treated as a regular member of the ward now instead of a recent convert. They will meet with me when they feel that they have a good thing to share with me, or if they feel that I need a visit. I miss the lessons, but I knew it had to happen some day.

Picked up my shotgun. I'm glad I went with the 18.5" barrel. Quite a bit longer and heavier than my ar-15. Now I need to find a deal on some good ammo. There's a local place that has the best deals I've seen anywhere, but the buckshot I want is out of stock. I'll probably just wait until I get an email notification from them, and buy a decent amount while I can get it hopefully after my next paycheck. I'm broke right now anyway, so I don't need to be spending anymore.

i know that feel. there's so much i want to do for the cabin, but for now i can only afford about $80 extra a month. that's not even enough to cover the plywood. i'd really love to have a small concrete mixer. it would speed things up a LOT but it's just not in the budget.

I hate being broke. I was so tempted to buy a few boxes of buckshot from ammunitiondepot today. Their price is better than everywhere else I've seen online for the stuff I want, but still 75 cents a box higher than the local place. If I'm gonna be spending $16 on shipping I should definitely wait for the local place to get more in stock on their site.

Financial class was awkward to say the least. Since me and ponyfag were partners this week we were supposed to contact each other during the week to support each other. Of course I have nothing to say to him, and he didn't attempt to talk to me. So at the beginning we were supposed to get together and talk about how we did this week. I made it pretty clear I have absolutely nothing to say to him. He took off halfway through class. Claimed he didn't feel good. I have a feeling it wasn't physical sickness that was bothering him. Still can't say he doesn't deserve it. He doesn't even know the half of what I felt being put into the position I was.

I just started working on the calculations in this android mortgage app, and if I'm doing this correctly this is the most Pajeet-tier thing I've ever seen. The format android uses for currency is called BigDecimal, and it sucks. You can't just do simple math like +,-,/,*. You have to use functions instead which leads to code that looks like this


totalMonthlyPayment = schedMonthlyPayment.add(homeownersInsurance).add(propertyTax).add(homeCondoAssocFee).add(otherFees);

Assuming I'm doing that correctly, this is how you add multiple values together without doing it in multiple lines. Each .add returns a new BigDecimal, which I can then call the add method on to add the next value, and so on. Cancer, cancer, and more cancer.

Today at work something finally pissed me off. In the warehouse the spots I like to work in are kinda narrow, but there are advantages and disadvantages to each area. Each aisle has 2 sides, one side is pretty wide open but they stack all the extra boxes and bags over there. At the beginning of the shift that area is a nightmare. You also have to make sure you get a cart that has good brakes on it or your cart will be moving around while you try to put stuff on it. The other side is very narrow, enough room for a cart to sit while you put stuff on it and enough room for carts to leave.

The advantage is that you don't have to worry about your cart moving at all and there isn't a sea of bags and boxes in your way. Getting out of the area is kind of a pain, but there's a technique to it and once you get it down it's no problem at all. You just kinda wiggle your cart as you pass other carts, and you will get through pretty easy as long as nothing catches too badly.

I was pushing my cart out of there, and I had a pretty heavy cart. There was a guy coming out into the walkway so I had to make a pretty hard stop. I do this all the time because there are always things to watch out for, you just gotta be alert at all times. So I stopped, and then I feel someone slam into me from behind. I hear "sorry", and I turn around and I see this dumb nigger bitch in a head scarf pulling her cart. You don't pull carts, you always push so you can see what is in front of you.

I was instantly the most mad I've been while working there. I turn back around and I said in the most serious tone I have "don't. pull. carts.", and the bitch must have given me a look or the guy in front of me could tell how pissed I was because he added on "you are supposed to push carts so you can see where you are going". I hate that bitch, she stinks like body odor constantly. I don't know if Allah is against deodorant or what but she reeks. We have some big guys and girls around that warehouse, and she's the only one that consistently stinks. She's skinny too so she has no excuse. Just a nasty nigger.

It seems like just about every single day we hear "don't pull carts". I admit there are times I'll pull a cart, but it isn't ever down one of those walkways where people could be coming out of aisles with heavy boxes or any other time there could be someone behind me. Worst part about this is she knew damn well I was behind her so there's no excuse.

Only times I ever pull a cart is when I'm going between vans over where we are supposed to put the carts, and I do that because it's a lot easier to zigzag when you are pulling and there isn't any danger of anyone being behind me. They kinda park in a way so that everyone kinda has their own space when they are loading, no danger of people getting stuff mixed up or anything and carts can still get through. Other time is when I get to my spot where the cart is supposed to be, I'll pull it in which is just a couple steps. Easier to get it in line, especially if there are other carts packed in next to it. Again, no danger of anyone being behind me in that situation.

I probably wasn't in much danger of getting hurt that time, but it pissed me off more than anything else has at that job. Could injure me, her, the guy in front of me. All kinds of bad things can happen when someone isn't paying attention.

Yeah, women shouldn't be allowed in a warehouse to begin with let alone colored women. Women are never as alert as men, and when you add the lower IQ of a subhuman woman it's just a danger to everyone around. If she would have run into another girl it's quite a bit more likely she would have hurt herself, the other girl, or someone else.

Running into me is like running into a brick wall for someone her size but all kinds of things can happen when there are 2 big heavy carts full of boxes involved. If it would have caused either one of us to fall all kinds of bad things could happen. Knock boxes off the cart onto other people, push the cart forward into anyone in front of it, etc. Last thing I need is an injury from this job outside of the minor wear and tear I deal with from the physicality of it.

This paycheck sucks. I need to make more money. Spent almost half of it already. I decided to get some more shorts since I only have 2 pairs of denim shorts. That was fine before I had a job, but soon I'm gonna wanna be wearing shorts instead of pants at work. I ordered 2 more pairs of denim shorts and a pair of workout shorts. The site I ordered from has a deal going where if you spend $50 while on their premium membership they give you $25 back in points.

So I took the 3 month free trial membership, and spent $70 after tax. I'll get my points tomorrow, and it will basically pay for another pair of the denim shorts. Assuming there aren't any Jewish tricks involved anyway. I didn't see any besides that it takes 24 hours to get the points and the points expire after a week. I'll be ordering the next pair tomorrow assuming all goes as planned.

Every time I buy something I think of something else that would help me out that I can get now that I have my own money. Nice to finally be able to do that, but I have to stop spending so much. The rest of what I spent today was the 10% tithing to the church. Ends up being around $22 on average. That money would be so nice to have, an extra $80+ a month. So hard to give that up, but I know without the church I wouldn't even have this job. And without the church my goals aren't going to be possible. Hopefully soon my hard work will pay off and my bigger goals will start to look more attainable than they have since the rejection.

Jewish tricks: 1

I went to spend my free money today, and I put some shorts into the cart. Noticed I wasn't going to get free shipping unless I spent a little more, so I added another cheaper item to the cart. I have a couple more dollars in points to burn anyway. Went to check out, clicked on redeem points, and everything looked good. I was to be charged $7. I hit place order, and it says I was charged $35.

>wtf

Go check my bank account, they seriously charged me the full price of the order. Check my points. Still there. Great. Go to cancel order, order is cancelled.

>please allow 5-7 business days for your full refund

Fucking kikes can take the money out of my account instantly but can't instantly put it back? Bullshit. Started the order over again, this time didn't add the smaller item because it ships from another store they own so I wondered if that was what caused the little glitch. Redeemed my points, didn't get the free shipping I was gonna get, but won't be giving them any extra money. Sent them feedback telling them how much their site pisses me off.

Decided to order some shotgun ammo from ammunitiondepot. Kinda sucks to spend more, but it also sucks not having ammo. Buying it from the local place would have gotten me a few more boxes, but I'm tired of waiting. Ammunitiondepot has plenty of stock in these rounds, so I don't really see much of an excuse for being out for so long. Ordered 12 boxes of Federal Tactical 12 Ga Reduced-Recoil 2-3/4" 9 Pellet FLITECONTROL 00 Buck Shot.

Seems like a pretty popular round for home defense because the flitecontrol wad is really good for keeping the pellets together. I like federal ammo in my experience with it for other guns. I thought the gun only held 6 rounds, but apparently it's 7. The OCD part of me wishes I ordered 2 more boxes to have an even amount. Not like I'll be going through this stuff anyway though, I just figured I'd want at least 50 rounds in storage.

Not really sure. I set it up to notify me when they re-stocked back when I first got the shotgun and determined the type of ammo I wanted. They are out of stock on almost all shotgun ammo though. They only really stock federal ammo, but the only stuff they have in stock right now is the federal powershok stuff. I'm sure that's good ammo, but it doesn't have the flitecontrol wad, so I don't really want to use it for home defense just because I'd like to keep stray pellets to a minimum in that situation.

>today was a very nice relaxing lazy day for me

>had a constant high of contentedness and emotional type feel goods the entire time

That's good to hear. I had a similar day. I got a good 12 hours of sleep last night. I was supposed to go to a friends house, but I didn't really want to leave the house and he never txted me so I didn't make an effort. Instead I stayed home, and watched general conference. Some good messages shared this general conference, and a couple interesting changes to church policy.

You would be a good choice, I can tell you are trustworthy. The main thing is that it's hard to determine whether someone is only putting on an act. At least one mod on /b/ right now doesn't put the users of /b/ before his own agenda for /b/. He was dropping anons post histories on /pol/ pretty quickly after he was hired, and dysnomia didn't do anything about it. Anons speculate that it was JimmyRustles, but no one really knows. I agree with /pol/ for the most part, but I would never leak anons post histories for any reason, and dysnomia used to claim he would fire you instantly for it. It seems after he made it impossible for me to mod that rule changed.

There were 2 choices: leave my position voluntarily, or be made to look like a terrible mod when the board got spammed and I was unable to contain it due to having my power limited. I could have started using D+ without being able to see post history but that would have immediately made me look bad to the userbase when posts would get deleted that didn't deserve to be.

The major issue I have with /b/ right now is that mods are allowed to enforce their own rules. The only reason pedos are banned right now, for example, is that the mods decided to ban them. Dysnomia said that they don't need to be banned anymore but the mods have chosen to continue banning them. Of course he could be saying that publicly and saying different things in PM, but assuming he's not the mods have chosen to ban non illegal content on their own.

Agreed. In fact I started saying more pedo sympathetic things on /b/ just to kind of push the boundaries of what I can get away with before one of those faggot mods bans me. It's less likely I get banned for the things random anons get banned for because of how much more well known I am. This isn't a good thing, as much as anons think I'm an attention whore who wants special treatment. I would rather not be treated like I'm special I still haven't gotten banned, even though I've said things that will get other anons banned.

Basically if I get banned the pedos will turn it into a massive event. Even though I doubt the pedos care much about me, they have built me into a meme. They are the ones that make all the hex OC, so if I were to get banned defending them I would become their hero and tons of OC and new threads would get made over it. When content is being created others join in that maybe wouldn't have joined in before. Maybe I give the mods too much credit in their ability to think ahead, but I think banning me for non illegal pro-pedo speech would cause more of a problem for them than they are willing to take on.

So what happened is that prophet Thomas S. Monson died recently.

Most likely. The claim is that a mission president raped a female missionary at the MTC. While possible, it seems pretty unlikely. And even if that did happen there is no need to protest the current church presidency at general conference over it as they had nothing to do with it. All of this is an attempt to discredit the church, at least in my opinion. The article I read had a quote from the "protester" where she claimed that the church is "problematic". It reminds me of gamergate immediately. Everything these SJWs disagree with is "problematic" and we must listen to the "victims" above all else.

>Missouri Executive Order 44, also known as the Extermination Order,[1][2] was an executive order issued on October 27, 1838, by the Governor of Missouri, Lilburn Boggs. The order was issued in the aftermath of the Battle of Crooked River, a clash between Latter-day Saints and a unit of the Missouri State Militia in northern Ray County, Missouri, during the 1838 Mormon War. Claiming that Latter-day Saints had committed open and avowed defiance of the law and had made war upon the people of Missouri, Governor Boggs directed that "the Mormons must be treated as enemies, and must be exterminated or driven from the State if necessary for the public peace—their outrages are beyond all description".

Agreed. If you were to post about what the church has created without mentioning the church, they would admit that it was a good thing. Mention that it is a part of the church and it becomes a problem. A lot of anons aren't willing to put in the effort required to take advantage of what already currently exists. The other problem with /pol/ is that they are very willing to throw away anything that isn't deemed perfect, while the cultural marxists take things that are imperfect and subvert them to their will. It is why we are losing the culture war, and will continue to lose until they realize that not everything has to be ideologically pure to be valuable.

The entire thread is pretty anti-Mormon. Even when someone makes a good point, the retards on there turn it into a bad thing.

Also no one wants to talk about the fact that back when Joseph Smith was alive, Mormonism was the white religion.

Also, wasn't there a recent statement that people should marry their own kind made by the church?

The worst part of the change is that well under 1% of Mormons at the time were black. It was just that nigger athletes started protesting BYU games.

>Also, wasn't there a recent statement that people should marry their own kind made by the church?

Sadly, doesn't seem to be the case anymore. It was until late 2013.

>The discouragement of marriage between those of different ethnicities by church leaders continued being taught to youth during Sunday meetings until 2013 when the use of the 1996 version of the church Sunday meeting manual for adolescent boys was discontinued.

>On December 6, 2013 the LDS Church published an essay entitled Race and the Priesthood on its official website. The essay disavowed the theories advanced in the past that interracial marriage was a sin, indicating that it was influenced by the racism of the era.

Debating on whether or not to go to the activity tonight. It's the one I used to lead. My friend wants me to go, and the people whose house it is hosted at want me to go. (((Ponyfag))) may not be there tonight since he's going on a trip to (((Israel))). I didn't pay enough attention to when he's leaving, but he won't be in financial class on Wednesday. I'd assume it's pretty likely he has left already. There isn't much there for me though. The girl will still be there, not that I care that much about that. If she's so uncomfortable around me it will be worse for her than it will be for me, given I have no feelings for her anymore. I just question whether I would rather go to the activity or get to bed early.

Usually there is an obvious reason behind such strong intuition. Maybe the reason for this one will be revealed in a short amount of time. But hey, at least it wasn't too bad. Maybe there's hope of any lingering weirdness dissipating and things going back to relatively normal

It was interesting to see how things went without me as leader anymore. It was really weird not leading though. The new leader obviously isn't as good at communicating things. He's a lot more quiet than I am, and I'm kind of a quiet guy myself I'm trying to change that, and it has improved greatly since joining the church. The girl had the activity today, and apparently he doesn't remind people of their responsibilities because she had no idea. He also didn't really know where to begin with leading the activity, but he can figure that out over time. I can tell it's going to be a bit more difficult for him though.

I feel for the guy, he's a good guy. When he asked for volunteers the same familiar thing happened: no one really wants to volunteer. I noticed they implemented the idea of asking people to volunteer to bring food too. He's really gonna have to stop being so quiet to be able to assign everything. The husband and wife whose house it's hosted at were trying to volunteer people for him. They asked if I would lead the next activity, I said I didn't know if I'd be there. Definitely not gonna be committing to do anything until I stop feeling like I don't want to be there.

I'm glad to not be in that calling anymore tbh. I don't know if I'll go again in 2 weeks, but as of right now I don't plan on it. I just don't feel like I belong there, or have any good reason to be there. I know my friend and the couple that own the house want me there, but I hate going into work on tuesday tired and if I'm not completely enjoying myself I don't see why I should make myself suffer so much.

I don't think his problem is fixable. It's his voice and his overall personality. I don't think his voice is capable of going much above a mumble, and his personality is about the most boring you will find. The type of guy that is easy to walk all over. The major difference between me and him is how our voices project. His is just so weak that even if he were to try to raise it, I don't think it would make much of a difference.

I don't see him as the leadership type of person. When you picture a betamale, this is the guy that pops into your head. Everything about him projects weakness. His posture, his voice, his facial expressions. Any of his other problems come down to repetition, do it enough times and you get the structure down. The only real recommendation I'd give him is that once he has something assigned, remind the person the weekend before.

that bad, huh? i'm not a natural leader either, but i overcome it through skill mastery. if i know the in's & out's of what i'm trying to accomplish it's easy for me to lead. from what i'm hearing he lacks even that. his will come only from respect of the position of authority and nothing else. sounds like the deck is seriously stacked against him.

I never thought I was, but for some reason people are drawn to me. I still don't quite comprehend why. Apparently not true for everyone though, that girl wasn't if she is serious about being uncomfortable around me. Ponyfag tried to tell me I came on too strong during that movie night. I think he was just a jealous faggot though tbh. I am a man after all, I don't want a woman that wants a weak man I didn't know I had any speaking ability until I had to use it. I didn't know I had any ability to lead until I was forced to. I'm still not the most confident a lot of the time, but I try not to let people see that.

My friend wants to go to the temple on Saturday, so I may end up going to the little shop that is near it and buying a set of temple clothes so I don't have to rent every time I go. It's cheap to rent, but I prefer to own things I pay for. Apparently since it's my first set of temple clothes they give a discount, so hopefully it won't be too expensive. I expect to pay around half my paycheck though.

It's too bad I wasn't wearing my garment since I had just finished working out. Part of my garment always shows at the neck of my tshirts. Looks like I'm wearing 2 shirts to the average person.

>>1498

At my warehouse we had a little experiment going where they had a couple aisles with these new bags. The rule in the warehouse is that nothing we lift should be over 49 pounds. The sort crew is supposed to try to keep the bags light, but they don't care so quite often we have to deal with bags over that weight. The new bags are bigger than the old ones, which the sort crew already overfills. That isn't a huge deal though because the old bags are pretty versatile in how you can handle them to get them on the cart. You can use the handles, or there are other methods. My method is to grab by the sides which have rods in them, use my knee to boost it and then use the momentum to throw it up onto the top of the cart.

The new bags are big, rectangular and they are hard so there are no sides to grab. You can grab the handles and that's it. It's like a giant box with handles on it. For me this led to a lot more pushing of heavy bags over my head, instead of just throwing them up there. A lot more strain on my back, wrists, hands, etc. The fact that they are much longer means they are also much heavier because the sort crew can load them even more.

The way the warehouse is setup right now, the experimental aisle where we were testing these bags was a disaster. Getting them off shelves was really hard, and on one side of the aisle you have a very narrow space where there's enough room for the cart you are going to load and a cart to pass by unless the cart that is being loaded had these bags on it. The bags stick out off the carts so far that everyone else that tries to pass gets caught up on them, this led to really bad congestion in that area. It's hard enough to get through these spaces with the old bags that don't stick out as far, but it's doable with some technique. For this to work they are going to have to redo the entire warehouse layout

They don't seem to care too much unless they have to. If people start getting hurt then they will care. Our manager always tells us the company does stuff then plans around what they did. Our warehouse is the first one in the country for this company using these bags, so we are the experiment. We all complained about these bags constantly when we had a couple aisles full of them, I guess if I'm there long enough we will see what happens when the entire warehouse is full of them. If we use smaller carts it may not be a problem, but if we stick to these 3 shelf carts it's gonna be a problem unless smaller people only use the first 2 shelves, but then we are going through carts faster.

There was another style of cart that they used with these bags for smaller routes but they only fit 2 of those bags so I don't see it being feasible to switch every cart to being those carts. With those carts, you only had to lift the bag about to your knees to place it on the cart. Those carts also came with their own safety hazards though. I bumped into one while I was wearing a sweatshirt, and I was glad I was wearing a sweatshirt because if I wasn't I'd probably have had a nice cut on my arm. They have thin sheet metal sides, so very unforgiving surface to catch anything on.

Wanna blogpost for a bit. I've strayed from the church. Mum took me for a few years while I was going through a catholic primary school (attending a church mass on easter friday for school then one for easter sunday in the Mormon church was confusing).

Any Mormon that comes here isn't going to have their feelings changed just because some guy on the internet is butthurt about Mormons for some reason. Anti-Mormon stuff isn't going to make me stop being a Mormon, I've heard it all before. I doubt he will even scare people that are thinking about converting, the reason people choose to convert is about a lot more than any anti-Mormon sentiment can do anything to stop.

Same. Only after hopes and dreams being crushed a few times do things seem to start to turn around. Through trials come strength, and maybe it's that we need the extra strength for what is to come once we do find the right plan and take that path and start to attain the things that we wish to attain. It will always hurt the most when it's happening, and make the most sense in hindsight.

Surprisingly wasn't too bad. Until the part where I ate way too much after church. We had a break the fast meal, and it was create your own tacos. I made 3 that were so big that the only way to eat them was with a fork. They said they needed all the food to go if possible, so I did my part.

The ponyfag is acting weirder than ever. A guy from the family ward came to my ward a few months back after they dissolved that old ward, and we have been hanging out at church ever since. Me and him went to Sunday school today and there were no seats. So we look around, and we see that behind the ponyfag there is a stack of folding chairs. We walk up, and he sets one up next to the ponyfag, I set one up next to him and we sit down. Ponyfag is noticeably uneasy. Eventually he left, and I dunno if he just stood in the hall the entire time or what but I saw him walk into Elders quorum as we were leaving Sunday school.

It reminds me of one of the things he told me when we talked after he asked me to speak with him at the activity. He said that he wanted to talk to me sooner, but every time he tried he got an anxiety attack and couldn't do it. I wonder if that's what's happening now, because that's 2 times now that I've felt he's left because of me.

I haven't ever given the guy a reason to fear me, let alone to that extreme. But then again, he did admit to having anxiety about talking to me which is pretty sad tbh. I don't think I'm that intimidating, but maybe I'm wrong. My friend is completely unintimidating though. Short guy, no muscle on him, and has some kind of a tick.

Nice guy, even if he is a little weird. I tend to spend more time with people in the church that are a bit more laid back. I'm kinda surprised he comes at all, he doesn't ever want to help out with anything if he doesn't have to. He does serve in his calling faithfully, but he won't wear a white shirt so he can pass or bless the sacrament. He does that on purpose knowing that no one will ask him if he doesn't wear a white shirt. I do pretty much everything asked of me, but I do prefer to be around the types of people that understand where I'm coming from a little better. That just tends to be the types of people that maybe don't follow all the guidelines to the letter, even if that is what I'm striving to do myself.

I got the janitor job, but they assigned me to a building that there is no way I'm hell I'm driving to. 1 hour commute at least. They assigned me to the area I didn't want out of the 3 options. I knew it would happen, and now I don't know what to do. Do I email them and see if I can work something out, or do I decline this offer entirely?

Email is sent. Hope they are able to do something for me. There's no way that I'm going to drive an hour+ to work, and an hour+ back just to make minimum wage. And on top of all that give up the entirety of my social life working the swing shift 3 pm-11 pm. I'm willing to sacrifice quite a bit for a job with this company, but that's too much. Getting into this company would basically set me up for life as far as employment goes, but I have to draw the line somewhere.

This week has been good for extra time at work. I'll be over 22 hours for sure. It will be my biggest paycheck. My body is broken down though. Tough week with how hard my manager is getting on us about our time. I've been going harder than ever, but I dunno if everyone else is because we are still finishing late obviously.

I know I need to quit spending money, but I'm tempted to finish these extra lower receivers I have laying around. It would be cool to make one of them an AR pistol.

Then he's like I'm up for going to a later one, but I think you should just go to this ward temple session but it's up to you. To me it sounds like he wants out of the entire thing, so if that's how it is then I'm not gonna bother.

I haven't seen a deal better than that. My local shops want 500-520 before tax which is insane. Budsgunshop wants 441 before tax and ffl fee.

Should be a great gun. I have an m&p shield 9mm, and the only problem I have with it is that it uses single stack magazines. So I have an 8 round magazine, and a 7 round magazine. If I don't have 1 in the chamber when I'm carrying that means 15 shots with a reload halfway through. New gun will allow me to shoot 15 without switching magazines, and I'll have a backup magazine. The new gun can also hold the 17 round magazines that the full size m&p uses if I chose to.

I forgot to include in my other post that it's the 2.0 version of the m&p 9 compact like is shown in the pic. I haven't gotten to handle a 2.0 m&p yet, so I'm really interested to see how nice the improvements are. I love smith & wesson handguns, so I'm sure this is gonna be really nice. Just couldn't pass it up at that price. My reward for doing so well in my first ever job interview and getting a new job I guess at least that's what I'm gonna tell myself

It cost me $10 more, but if it gets me my gun I'll take it. I don't like having $800 tied up, but the time to do this is now. I have no major risk of anything bad happening since I live with my parents, and don't really pay for much of anything. I know I'll get my 400 back once the refund processes, one way or another. I won't ever be doing something like this again though. Once you have good guns you generally don't have to buy new ones unless you feel like buying new ones, assuming you take good care of your stuff. This should be the last purchase I make that has to go through an FFL. My only other wants as far as guns are completing projects I haven't completed, and those parts can ship directly to my door from shops that I've done business with before.

I went to the activity tonight because it may be my last one for a while. Ponyfaggot wasn't there, so that was nice. It's not near as awkward when it's just one person I don't like that is there. And what the girl did to me doesn't piss me off near as much as the backstabbing ponyfag does. Luckily he got what was coming to him, and from the sounds of it it hasn't even begun for him. All I hear about him lately is bad stuff happening, and all I can think is "I can't say he doesn't deserve it". A traitor is the lowest of the low. Without honor what is a man? a nigger :^)

The girl seems to want to treat me as a friend again. She is playful with me like she used to be, and I'm trying to be the same as I used to be with her. It's tough. I still feel pretty negative feelings towards her. I have very conflicting emotions. I don't know if that will ever change. I did have pretty strong feelings for her before all that happened. The feelings I thought were gone are still there at times. It was easier to say they were gone when we were both kinda avoiding each other.

Background check for the new job just started. They actually waited until the due date for me to accept the contingent offer even though I accepted it a week ago. It sucks because the more time that passes the more time I have to deal with the horrible new bags that are coming to the warehouse. My last background check took around a week, so if it takes a week this time that will put me on the day the new bags are in. From there I have to take a drug test, and wait for the results of that before I put in my 2 weeks. So it's looking like I'll be dealing with the new bags for a while.

Only thing I'll miss about this job is the cute girl that trained me. It's for the best for me to get away from her though. Temptation is killing me.

gunbuyer.com is legit. Firearm shipped today, should be at my ffl on Friday. Wish I would have just used them in the first place, but I figured I'd give this other small business a chance because I didn't think they would be total incompetents. Being based in Texas you would think they would know how to sell guns, but apparently not. My money is still tied up waiting to be refunded. Wish it would hurry up, I need that money back so I can buy my holster. I don't want to transfer anymore out of my savings. My checking account is down to $20 since I bought gas today. I'll probably have to wait until pay day to do anything else.

>>1619

>They can only hide beneath the surface

Luckily the only interaction we usually have is at these activities, and when I caught her at church(rare) or other things I was invited to. Pretty easy to continue avoiding her at this point since I won't be able to go to activities anymore for a while.

Drug testing today was a major pain. The testing site they had me go to was terrible. I showed up for my appointment, and the lady at the desk can't login to her account so she tells me I have to come back who knows when. I have 2 business days to do this test, so that answer is unacceptable. I called the # to get the location of another site, and went to the next site. Got there at 12 PM, and they turn me away because "testing doesn't start until 1". Go back at 1, same lady at the front desk is the one that tests me. I have no idea why she couldn't have just done that at 12, if she was just hanging out at the front desk anyway.

>maybe they're a start-up and still in their learning curve

They have this thing on their front page about how they are a family owned business and have years of experience(doesn't say how many). And they go as far as to say

>Ultimately, we want to provide our customers with the highest quality of service in their search for a gun dealer they can depend on. Buying guns online will be your preferred method thanks to GrabAGun.com.

I dunno about other people, but having my order canceled and my money tied up for 5-7 days for absolutely no good reason doesn't inspire a feeling of confidence in buying guns online. I've been trying to understand how an order can be canceled because it is "a security risk for fraud" especially when we are talking about guns. Maybe I just don't have a good enough understanding of how people commit fraud these days, but it seems like a load of crap. Especially when another site is willing to do it no questions asked.

>that might be your saving grace for this situation

If only she could have seen, but it's OK. There is a plan for me. It becomes increasingly obvious the further things progress. After I left my calling things started to make sense. I had to leave the calling I was in to be put into a more important calling. I had to leave the calling I was in because I was to get a job that would make it impossible to serve in that calling.

I'll be saving a lot more money when I start that job and start getting those bigger paychecks. I'm running out of stuff I want to buy, so that will help too.

Picked up the new pistol. Very nice. It comes with 4 choices for grip size, and it even comes with 2 magazine spacers so it can hold the 17 round magazines the full size uses. Now I want to order 2 of those just because I already have the spacers for them. I'm very curious how the full size mags feel in the gun, if they feel as nice as the 15 round magazines I could carry with a 17 round mag loaded, and another 17 + the 15s as my backup mags. This is a very nice upgrade from the shield, and it cost me about the same amount as I paid for my shield buying it at a gun store a while back. It was my first ever gun, so I paid more than I should have.

>So, all in all, happy with the purchase so far?

Yeah, the only flaw is there was a little chunk of polymer gouged out of the frame behind the trigger, and some scratches under it on the trigger guard. I cleaned up the gouge a bit by heating up a metal pin, and running it over the polymer around it. I'm not sure what happened to cause that, either a flaw at the factory or someone taking a tool to it.

I'd lean more towards it being something that happened at the factory while it was being assembled. I can't think of any reason someone would take a tool to it there, and also hit the trigger guard. Kinda sucks, but it doesn't affect the function of the firearm and I wouldn't have had them send it back had I seen it on my initial inspection.

I'm a bit OCD about imperfections like that, but I'll get over it. The gouge I felt needed to be touched up. Even though it probably wouldn't have gotten worse, there were some spots it looked like it could peel if I used the pin or a knife. Those are all melted down now, and it's a lot smoother. You can barely tell it happened. In the pic you can see the scratch on the trigger guard, and can kinda tell I melted the polymer on the spot above it.

>the double cheeseburgers from those vending machines are my secret shame

I do have to admit it's tempting. There's some good stuff in there. It's especially tempting since they have card scanners on the things so you don't have to have cash to use them. I won't do it though.

>>1631

>It's still getting down to freezing (or close to it) temps at night here

That's unfortunate. Hopefully it warms up more soon. It's been warm enough here that I can wear shorts to work. It is a bit cold before my car warms up, but manageable.
