This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

No the band is okay. It's the singer that pisses me off. Why do all the 90s grunge vocalists gotta be tough guys?

### Re: Absolute Randomness

i just received the following text:

"because it is raining most of you won't have work for tomorrow but at 12 o'clock we'll have lunch at buffalo wild wings and i'll have some gift cards for everyone"

i will most certainly not be going, and i'll tell ya why. to do so would create an ethically perverse situation which would lead him to believe he is doing me a favor... which would then count against me in the future. for example, if i ask for a raise, one of the things that will cross his mind when he begins rummaging around for reasons to refuse would be something like this: 'but i just bought him lunch and gave him a gift card.' see how that works? you never give your employer a reason to believe he's done something for you, because he has not.

and this lunch is a prime example. in reality, it would be him buying me lunch and giving me a gift card with money i've made him... which amounts to giving back to me what was already mine. and here is where it gets perverse; while he isn't obligated to do this for me, and will perceive doing so as a 'gift', he would be misguided to expect appreciation from me since he is in fact buying these things with money i've made him. i therefore cannot allow him to be under the impression that he is doing anything for me... and it would be doubly absurd to put myself into debt by accepting the offer. he isn't doing anything for me, and he sure as shit can't be allowed to believe he is, since that would come back and bite me in the ass later on.

that and i couldn't possibly 'socialize' with this guy. i can't stand him, and i'll not pretend to enjoy his company.

### Re: Absolute Randomness

I wouldn't go either, and not because of all the paranoid shit.
I, like you, cannot pretend to like someone if I despise them. My eyes give me away, and my ego cannot be swallowed for me to pull it off.

Never went to any work-party, when I was working....because I could not socialize with people I had nothing ni common with just because I could easily make them laugh and make them like me during the eight hours of work.
They mistook my work personae as the real me.

Because the 90s and early 2000s was the last epoch where white men could express masculinity without it being criminalized.

Makes sense, at my job there is a yearly employee barbeque. No, fuck you guys, I want a fucking raise in wages god damn it! Did I mention that attendance is compulsory and mandatory concerning the yearly barbeque? "We care about our employees, here's a fucking hotdog you ungrateful ingrates."

no that can't be it because rock bands were already feminized in the 80s, and those clowns still tried to be tough guys. observe.

now i will make an exception for a couple rock vocalists from the 90s that didn't have to try to sound like tough guys. that's the sound garden guy and the pearl jam guy. although the pearl jam guy is really pushing it and comes dangerously close to being a cornball.

See how it's done?
Smarmy, cynical, patronizing, ridiculing...with some pop-culture references, and presto….nullification achieved.
