My vent is actually over the course of all last week, so I will be going day by day for it.

Start on last Saturday:


Sunday: I don't think anything of note actually happened, so thats off the hook.

Monday:


Tuesday:


Wednesday:


...Thursday:


Friday:



I swear if I come in on Monday and its looking like more of the same then I am about-facing.

That sounds a shit week mate, having fucking two bit useless lazy co-workers is a nightmare, I've experienced it several times on various gigs and the final nail in the coffin is that somehow you always seem to cop at least some of the blame for mouth breath retards because you didn't somehow "fix" the problem.

So in addition to my mashed up fingers I bit the inside of lip on Friday (after some cunt in a campervan tried to drive me off the road) and now there are two ulcers where I bit it. It hurts to even swallow as it rubs.

Realizing that a possible great opportunity for a good paying job was skipped over me for some lazy aSS-hat. In addition this guy gets fired two days later and I recieve a call from the company for a "return-interview?" Fat chance I says, go to hell I told the Account Manager even as I saw the $8.00 dollars in difference between my current paycheck and what I would be getting paid. Even though I do not regret my choice I am venting because I'm tired of working for measy $13.00 an hour (with a Dual Bachelors and 5 years Mil Service), while shitty, GED assholes get good paying jobs and do nothing to earn them.

RRRAAARRRR!!!! Why

So it was a great opportunity before you got skipped over, but after that and they got screwed by the guy they chose it was no longer good and you shot it down completely? Not only that but you insulted the person asking you to do another interview?

You claim your tired of getting aid shite but turn down an opportunity for some form of advancment; sounds like this is exactly where you want to be.

That is a fair view of the problem Darkreever; and to an extent I realize this. However for me they knew the difference; it was clearly shown when I arrived in fashionable Suit/Tie and this guy was wearing a T-shit and Khacki's.

The point here is that I'm a Pofessional, and the diference between people like your Co-Worke and yourself Darkreever is you give a damn about you job; and you do it to the best of your ability while he does not(and it shows). The same sense can be applied here between me and the other gentlemen. Additionally I pefer to work fo companies that use me for more than "Theatrical Security;" a term some of you might know all to well. This company I was applying to was one such company.

My vent was more that all those years of preparation in HS, College, and the Military don't seem to count when HS drop outs with GED's are getting higher paying jobs. Just seems to me the hadworking people in this country are getting screwed.

So basically I'm going to fail a crucial course in my college program because everything that could have possibly gone wrong with the major assignment did go wrong.

First assignment, worth 25%. Had to make a video. Video came out too long for one DvD. I had to split it into 3 DVDs. Get the assignment back and it turns out an entire fucking THIRD of the video was copied twice, so an entire third of my project was completely missing. 8.5/25.

Second assignment, worth 25%. Working with a partner. Trying to figure out a good place to film, as well as dealing with our school' bullshit-as-fuck 48-hours-in-advance camera booking policy, we decide to do our filming on the wednesday the following week. The musician we're supposed to film e-mails us and tells his his version of the assignment is due on TUESDAY, so we have to rush our asses with our crappy point and shoots and film last second.

Then my partner's footage says FUCK YOU and refuses to go into Premier Pro. The only programs available on the internet to convert his camera's footage into an appropriate format either cost a ridiculous amount of money or slap an ugly ass watermark on my video. 13/25.

First test. Filled with vague as fuck questions 70% of the class agrees are vague. Also, is a theory test in a practical class. Teacher disregards complaints of 70% because 30% got lucky and guessed the right answers. 5/10.


As it stands I have to miss zero classes (which really isn't a problem for me), get 80% on my next assignment AND get a 70 on my next test JUST TO PASS THE COURSE. Knowing this teacher, that's not going to fucking happen.

Good luck there @Alsojames , or 'break a leg' whichever is more appropriate.

Where are you in school? (This sounds a lot like intro video production at my alma mater, which is to say 'annoying.') If you have to do more editing, you might also consider a NLE program from the UK called Lightworks.

It's free. There is an enhanced version for 60$ (might be $30 fir students.) I used it to cut a video production project for grad school this summer and I was really impressed. The interface isn't intuitive but the content has some good tutorials on YouTube. It was enough for me to learn the program and finish the project on time.

Lost one of my closest friends to a cult that passes as a religion just because it includes Jesus. He severed all contact between us. Would rather do God's will than spend time with the friends he's made the last few years with us.
