    We went to Best Buy first only to find out they were all sold out and they wouldn't be available until February.

    Then my mom went to their website where she ordered it for delivery instead of being picked up at the store.

    We were going to go to the Apple Store also, until it was easier to just order them online.

    Free shipping as well.

    Here's a new one. Got a pay raise today. Why did it make me frown? It was so low it was insulting. An extra $6 a week for a 40 hour week. I suppose I should be grateful for the raise but I would have felt better if they didn't even bother. Not only was the raise so low it came with a Non-compete and non-solicitation agreement to sign. So basically in order to get the raise I need to sign the agreement. It really comes across not so much as a reward for a job well done or as appreciation for the work I do, but a payment for my signature. I basically sat in the dark for the last 2 hours just thinking of what I do next.

    If it's any consolation, with one of my dad's old jobs years ago, his boss got so cheap that eventually the employees' Christmas bonuses were . . . jackets.

    I'd take the jacket. We got a box of popcorn. OK, it was deluxe popcorn. But it's still just popcorn

    I mean, once upon a time, companies would actually give money as Christmas bonuses. What a concept, amIrite?

    Mine does. It was added onto a paycheck before Christmas. However, I won’t disclose the amount.

    I had no idea that was even a thing. Do they make Pops of Ronald McDonald, Wendy, and the Burger King as well?

    Not yet, this is a new line of their icons of famous people. They’re doing Jim Henson as well.

    Looking back at old posts of mine from March to May 2018. I, for some reason, was quite bitter and angsty during that period. I think part of it had to do with all of the drama happening on this forum during that time.

    But anyway, looking back at those posts really makes me cringe. I regret saying some of that stuff, and I apologize for acting so stuck-up and rude back then.

    Seeing a certain thread get locked.

    Why? If that thread was left open, then more trouble would've started. And didn't you say you wanted people to stop talking about that anyway?

    I was just in a bad mood at the time of my post, so apologies for that.

    I did not mean to post that, but it was something earlier in the day which happened that made me do it.

    Me too, but you knew it would be coming at some point.
