It's caused me to be extremely cynical over time, but then again I work at a prison.
I've developed a twisted sense of humor, but it helps keep moral up at work.
My friends outside of work say I've changed, and that is probably true.....but I deal with a lot and see a lot.
Things that used to bother me in the smallest, now don't really at all.
Getting guilt trips all the time from offenders about how they rationalize what they did, has become a bit of a trigger for me. Especially when I know what they did and I see them getting excited about it when they talk about it. However, it isn't my place to judge them, only to keep them safe while they are locked up.
Working long house, day after day, trying to keep in mind that visitors are important, family is important to these people....then see that they have a wife, girlfriend, and a mistress just so they get more money put on their books.
It is amazing what you deal with in this job, and even more amazing that unlike Police or Firefighters......correction officers don't go through mental evaluations periodically, or following a serious event such as having to fire a gun, see an inmate stab another inmate, or watch one die slowly in the hospital over weeks due to end stage illnesses.

Yet, day after day, a correction officer returns....does their job, and goes home to their family in hopes they can leave that at work...but knowing it is just something you tuck away behind a mask.

What pisses me off....is knowing that isn't what the media looks at when they attack the job I do. That isn't what anyone looks at from the outside. They just see the bad some of them do and think that is everyone working there, but never even looks into why some of the ones that do go bad....have gone bad.

Seeing young people wearing socks and flip flips or sandals. Old people get a free pass since they are old and it's probably easier than tying shoes.

People who block an entire grocery aisle and ignore you when you ask them to please move so you can get by, then yell at you for slightly nudging their cart to make room.

People that cut me off and turn their blinker on when they are already in my lane. It's okay because I return the favor which posses them off, too. So it equalizes my karma.

Just the reality of things.

Best part is, I finally get a promotion into a position that should help increase the over all functionality and retention of our Co, just to find out that Administration told my supervisors something they didn't tell myself or the 5 others that went into the position. Now it just sounds like the position is a glorified CO and we might not be able to perform the duties we hoped we would....and that is specifically being FTO's because it is something that is severely needed. I'm still a Sgt, and we were told our overtime couldn't be manditory to fill in a CO position because we are supervisors...only to find out they might be doing a loophole that I only heard about lastnight.

"We were told that we can't hold you over to fill a position, but we can collapse it and hold you as an 'extra body' so this way you aren't technically filling the post, but you'd still be doing its job."

Per the Union agreement that the CO are under, we can't fill those positions with anything but another CO as part of their Manditory Overtime agreement clause. This means that Admin created the FTO to use them in a manner that is loopholing the clause which is annoying. Granted I still get paid more and I'm still a supervisor, but it was like they made this so they could have quasi Lt that aren't salary fill in and be there.

Seeing the 'Prisoners are Slaves" propaganda going around. I don't even know where to start with this because it is so jaded and biased without taking entire facts into account.

Sometimes I wonder if people read history at all.

Considering the direction we're going in, I doubt it.

Anyway...

Ordered new parts/monitor from NewEgg last week. Majority of it came in today. Only thing missing was the GPU, Monitor, and my card reader. Nothing that screams I can't start building.

After going through some hell of getting the mobo in, then taking it out to install the heatsink which was another pain in the ass I noticed that the RAM I ordered wasn't in the box. Sure enough it wasn't delivered even though the invoice says it was in the package.

So... playing a, and it randomly crashes, restart the PC and the computer basically goes up in smoke... SO I need to get a new video card (last thing I saw was the screen going derp so presuming its the video card that went derp)

Luckily I have a laptop, unfortunately, it doesn't have all the stuff my main pc has in one way or another >.> (like website bookmarks, images, games etc)

LPers, especially for horror games.

Why is it so hard to try to find gameplay without some DBag talking over it and trying WAY too hard to be funny?

Few weeks ago my mothers house caught fire .. everyone was okay and it was only room and contents.

I lost a 46in SAMSUNG OLED tv i got back in 2009 for around $1600. Insurance company says we will replace it with a 49in tv that is bottom of the line and on sale for 900 and subtracting 250 deductible ..

Meanwhile, had I not had renters insurance I would had more than enough money to just buy a replacement tv.... so yeah... happy no one was hurt .. not happy with my insurance company.

Some days ago, i made a weeding video for 2 of my guild members on youtube.
That video was not even up for 5 minutes and i already got 4 copyright claims.

Since when can ingame music be copyright claimed????

Even more funny, 4 months ago i upload a fun montage of world of warships, where i used video clips from diffrent movies. No claim on that video for some reason

Got my RAM in the mail today and got my PC built.

Except I'm one eSata cable shy of having it completed. None came with my SDD, HDD, or Blu Ray player and the mobo only provided 2.

That feeling you get when you are putting your computer back together... have 8 sata cables to connect... but you only have 5 sata devices, and when you check your system devices, you only see 2 devices.

What is all this shit aaahhh

Wanting to cancel a hotel reservation but since I got it thought a "3rd party" (Translation: I booked on the site but the URL contained a query string for the event/discount I'm attending) I need to contact customer service in order to cancel.

Trying around 5 MMOs in the past month and nothing really sticking. I'm starting to think it's a dead genre at this point.
