“I want”, “I deserve”, “I don’t care, I will not leave until i get what I want”

Ohhhh it has been a while since i last typed an article here. Yeah sorry, work, busy, you know. Anyway it’s time to talk about another category of people that most of us had to deal with in our life, either at work or in private. Those people want everything and will not accept a NO. And i get them a lot in my job since I work in customer service. Those people, will be maybe nice at first (or not) but quickly when you tell them “I am sorry sir but ” it will be like letting the flood go, and no matter what you say, they won’t be happy, they will yell.

What do they do first? Try to convince you that you HAVE TO give what they want. Because 1: they deserve it (no you don’t), and second, it’s normal they get it as it was taken from them in the first place (mostly about people who got their account emptied because they gave their password away or let their kids play, and those kids did the whole thing). They should remember that we have absolutely no obligation to do so, and we are doing it because we are nice and want to help people. But no, they will still rage and even scream at you if they can. And that really is annoying. You on the other side, are tempted to just say “You know what dude, no more goodie two shoes, go fuck off and shut the fuck up, learn how to use a computer/internet/security and come back when you got a brain”. But no, you can’t, you have to listen to him yell and yell again.

When they see that yelling and complaining don’t get them what they want, what is their next move? “I want to talk to your superior/manager”…. Right…. Just so he can tell you the EXACT same thing I told you. Just to be precise I work in uk, but all the customer I get on the phone are french. My superiors are British and thus do not speak french (well except the bonjour and oui non). And just for you, most french people (like 95%) don’t speak English or what they know is like “Hello, my name is”. So when I tell them they would need to speak English, then it’s even worse. Because they call a french service so of course I must have french manager and they won’t speak some fucking English.

So now what is the last move? They want to sue you! But of course! And what do they want to sue you about? Not about a whole scam or something big, no, about a little thing or sometimes a game or a product. One thing that might cost them what, 40 quid tops. So let’s calculate: lawyer will cost them much more. And even if they sue you, they will end up against a wall. One of the reason is because it’s a threat and they won’t do it. But when they do it. But french people love that too, at the end when they are in a corner, to say they will sue the hell out of you. And they expect us to be even more scared, run everywhere to satisfy them. But we don’t, we stick there, facepalming, and in the end, they just yell again and again.

Those people are a pain, and they only get stuff out of weak and small companies. But once they end up against big ones or someone who is strong and will not bend over easily, then its impossible to calm them.

Seriously, why can’t they just calm the fuck down and get a little respect there… I hate people…18

Job hunting, and people towards you.

I guess we all went through that stage at a moment or another, we all had that time where we didn’t have any job, and were looking for one. It can be some days, decades or month ago or still now, but i will tell you what IS annoying in the reaction of people. So if you know someone who doesn’t have a job, here is what pisses us off to the point we just want to crash your head against the wall.

“At least I work” Right…. So you work, that is good for you, but it’s not really because we CHOOSED to that we don’t work. We send CVs, applications,, we call, we do whatever we can, even dealing with our job centers, and all that for what? To get a mail (when we do) telling us that they are happy we applied but too baaaaad they won’t give us a chance. So what do you want us to do? Force people to hire us? Call them non stop? No! And we are not in the 70s anymore, you can’t find a job in a blink of an eye. So seriously stop it, annoying as hell.

“You still haven’t found a job?” No i didn’t otherwise you would know about it. And well, same as above, can’t force anyone to hire us, and when you are young, or you got no experience, but no one is willing to let you show what you can do or get that experience, what do you do then? Yes because mostly, it’s due to the fact we don’t have 10 years of experience, but no one is willing to give us a chance.

“Just pass you driver’s license then! ” But of course, and will you give me the money? No? Then SHUT UP. We don’t all live in USA where it cost 50$ to pass that license, here it can cost up to 2000 euros, yea, and the “didn’t you work during the summer”, well yeah, but with what money did you think we pay the university? Seriously? Asking the parents? As i said, it’s EXPENSIVE and for many of my generation, parents approach or are retired, and didn’t win the lottery.

It ain’t fun to always have to listen what other people say, like if they think it’s sooooooooooooooo easy to find a job. But those are the one who found a job in the 70s and kept it until retirement. So for those, please, do us a favor, shut up. You have no idea how hard it is right now.

Wesh Wesh all over the place

Well, today was a beautiful day, warm enough to go out wearing a single long sleeve light shirt. Lots of sun in the sky and not a single cloud to hide it. Basically a nice spring day when i was going to eat an ice cream and since the ice cream van from Ben&Jerry was coming to Lyon, i figured i would go to get the free ice creams. But, like very good thing attract bad ones, here i was, at the meeting place, and so was many youngsters.  Usually that would not be a problem. But today, they were all what we call: Wesh wesh.

Now i hear you, what is that, those are the youngsters, mostly in France and with Algerian, or any other Arabic country origins, speaking mostly with an horrible aggressive accent and half Arabic, half french. Basically only their clan can understand each other. What are their particularities?

They speak loud: Of course, you HAVE to notice them, you have to know they are here and act like they own the place…

They aggress you if you DARE to look at them in the eyes… Yeah, like some wannabe delinquent or prison whatever, they will start to get angry, even if you did nothing, even if you jut looked at them for 5 sec, they will aggress you.

They all wear the same: Sports wear, mostly addidas and nike, with the pants tight at the ankle for men, and like sluts with a mix of sports wear for women.

And while looking at them, and laughing inside on how ridiculous they were, they started to take more and more space, being invasive and really annoying, yelling, and going stupid stuff with their bikes, then arguing. So yeah, i left. And as i was leaving, i remembered an article saying that now there are classes for those to teach them to speak correctly and loose that horrible accent, in order for them to find a job…

It’s already hard for me, for them? That will be hell. And in the meanwhile, they make everywhere hell for us….

I hate humans….

Dating websites

Yep, even me i will talk about that. Being born during the caramail boom, i know about dating websites such as Meetic, Adopteaguy.com, edarling, and so many others. I know about them mostly due to adverts on television. I mean what’s better when you are here, nicely comfy in the evening watching the new episode of a serie you enjoy, then the adverts come. Usually you use that time to go to toilet or get a glass of water or tea or whatever. But in some cases, you just end up watching those ads and wondering what the fuck did those guy smoke when they made that crap. Anyway and between 2 ads for some toilet paper soooo soft and long and some washing powder that makes your clothes so white and clean and better than any other (*sighs*) you find some ad for a dating website. And there… you crash…. Your poor brain experience a blue screen of the death like a computer, and the only thing that come to your mind is “WHAT THE FUCK”

Yep, that’s what i was thinking the first time i saw those. The first thing i wonder is why the hell do they make ads for that, or are people THAT desperate to find a boy/girl friend to marry and so on? Because we all know dating websites have been going for a good while, and most of us went on it once, either to test or for a laugh (I am part of the second category) but to find the true love? Come on… Don’t tell me you believe you will find the love of your life on a dating website? O____o And because i know what i saw on it, i can tell, you don’t find true love on that….

Girl side: Of course, ladies first…. although to find true ladies on there, you gotta be fucking lucky. First you find all the girls you find on social networks, the one taking a pic in the bathroom…. Yep that is sexy, especially with the glasses and the flash of the camera or phone. Sexy….. Then you get the one with the duckface… and they think that is sexy to make such a ridiculous face…. Moving on, oh the ones putting pics almost naked and even naked, those don’t look for love, just to get fucked and if they tell you the opposite, they lie. And of course, don’t forget all those who take a pic with a high angle, the camera above them to show their breasts…. And then women, i mean real women wonder why men treat them like bitches and objects…. yeah right….

Boy Side: Same shit as women. Between the one that post pics naked or just of their dicks… Not a joke… I just lose faith in humanity… And then you add those who take a pic with their dog or cat, or with the guitar (i guess some women like that, dunno) or with crazy scenery behind them. Basically with whatever make the woman not look at them but at what they are showing… and mostly,sorry to tell you that guys, we are more attracted to the dog cat guitar or scenery you are taking a pic with, not you. And once they talk to you, the good old: How’s you?…. Like seriously? Can’t you guys be a bit more… i don’t know, inventive? Or do you only know those 3 damn words?

Once you passed the state of talking on that website, usually is continues on msn or Facebook, then the people meet. But the breaking point is here. Even if you talk to let’s say 10 people from the dating website, 3 will make it to the msn address, 2 maybe to meet in real, and just one with who you might end up friend… or in the best case you will date, not for long, it will be over…. What a joke.

And people still believe they can find true love on that… Yeah right!

Newspapers and what i read those days.

I guess i will talk like many people, but on the morning, while going to work or even having breakfast, i read the newspapers either on my phone or some free newspaper given at the train station. I sit in my train, and read the news, what is going on around the country, and usually i read the UK newspaper in the train and the french one on my phone. Of course, there are articles about politics and what happens, but weirdly enough, while the UK newspapers mostly talk about recent event and not really about politics, french newspapers are different. Recently, what do i read:

Islam angry because of the film about mahomet  and the cartoon made in “Charlie Hebdo”…. Right, ok. Like many people i don’t see the difference between islam and muslim religion because for what i remembered, they all follow the coran. I will not debate about religion, as i am an atheist and for me getting angry because some newspaper had a cartoon ridiculing mahomet is fucking stupid. But what i find mostly massively stupid and retarded are all those extremist using the film and cartoon as an excuse to create mayhem and kill people. In what kind of world do they live? Yes Charb will always make carton too ridiculise whatever religion, and not only the muslim or islam one, but you can do nothing about that. French laws says they can and are allowed to, why? FREE country where the RELIGION is SEPARATED from the state ! So no they will not put Charb in jail or whatever for blaspheme. Mahomet ain’t a person, he is an idea ina  religion so until you got some SOLID SCIENTIFIC proofs of the pseudo existence of that dude, don’t read charlie hebdo, don’t watch crappy films that insult your religion, and go on and live. To make things clear, i have friends who are muslim and we have no problem as they don’t force their religion on me. But those morons taking arms, killing some American guy in an embassy, they make people even more afraid of the muslim religion, and pretty much put oil on the fire, making people categorize ALL muslim as being some extremist psychopath. And i don’t even get why muslim people who are not like that, actually let those crazy ones be the face of their religion. But anyway, next topic!

Kate topless in closer…. That one, please, let me laugh ! Where do i start… The fact french people DARED to publish the topless body of the future queen? I am sorry, what????? Last time I remember, some ENGLISH newspaper called the SUN published pictures of a naked (and yes naked butt) of the prince, am I wrong? So they are allowed to publish those type of pictures but not france? Then the next thing is about french paparazzi harassing kate like they did for diana. Right, and they wanna boycott french product for that…. Well they killed our jeanne d’arc, but we didn’t boycott british product since then, did we? Then the last, everyone is having trouble with money in uk and in the world, nothing news. But her and william still went on holiday not in the south of uk, but south of france and not in a cheapie hotel, but a private property…. And she gets topeless there, KNOWING here is freedom of speech and that she would be hunted. If she didn’t want that, she should have kept her top on, and go topless inside the house maybe. That would have been SMART. And then going for a full trial for that… What kind of joke is it? Anyone else suing the magazine Closer for that would have got a fail, but anyway because she is royalty she get that ridiculous trial be proceeded. And get the picture taken back from closer? That would have worked if they were old pictures but now it’s all digital, so sorry darling but your picture will never leave internet. You are doomed. Next time think before doing something stupid.

Gangnam style… That is something i don’t get. As much as i like korean music and i do, that song is ridiculous and noone will remember the guy in some years (at least not in europe) because just this song is being popular. Except i see that song and that guy everywhere….. And it’s starting to be annoying.

And the last, the thing that will take 60% of the newspaper’s page, politics. And there, if i had to start on that, noone would be asleep as i would write a damn novel. No politic is perfect guys, but Holland, you elected him, so now, no turn back. He does what he said he would. And when you see in what shit Sarkozy put france (i was being insulted by chinese people cuz of that fucker), wait 5 years and let’s see what holland will have done. Because so far, he is acting more than the one before him and not going on holiday every time.

Miss world 2012: The fail result

Today, as i was leisurely talking to my best friend, she told me “hey, look at that”. I see a YouTube video, and i wonder what it could be. I see a girl, miss world candidate for 2012, and speaking an English more than destroyed with a chainsaw. So i think, why not make my own contest, the worse Miss world candidates, not beauty wise, but speaking wise. Miss word is expected to smile pretty and shut up, so making them talk is really not a good idea.

The first position is for France!

Please, look at that:

Let’s check her fails:

“I study international management in 3 different country”…. Right, first it’s “countries” because more than one. Second, i wonder which one would accept someone not able to speak English correctly so i guess, 3 french speaking countries.
“I am végétarienne” …Right, what about saving our poor ears and learning how to say vegetarian instead of using the french word for it? “I promote all regional luggages”…. Ah? You meant languages I guess…. not the same. But why not….
“In television or in school that are about to despair” Our despair is your damn horrible English right now. It’s disappear…  like we wish you could disappear.
“If i add the marvelous opportunity to became miss world” If only you were part of the past, but it’s actually “become” not became….. goodness sake!

Let’s all admire her anyway it is truly hard to destroy a language that easily and quick in such a short time. Just to make France look bad, well worse, showing how bad french people can speak another language.

Now, the second position comes to Miss Japan.

That one, apart from the fact it takes us 10 second to understand she is actually not speaking Japanese but indeed trying to speak English, we spend the rest of the time wondering what the hell she is saying. Catching some words, here and there, university, miss world. Pretty much she just say a text she learned by heart, without understanding the meaning of it.

And finally in 3rd place, Miss China

This one, like her college from Japan, learned a text in English, by heart, learned the pronunciation… sort of… and try to say it in front of the camera. It’s quite obvious she has no idea what she is saying, forgets sometimes what she is supposed to say,  but that the text she learned was written by someone who obviously needs to go back to school to learn English….

And they dare to come for miss world? Seriously, all what we are waiting for them to do is sit back, smile pretty, and SHUT THE FUCK UP, and not destroy a language like that! But let’s all congratulate our winners!

The joy of hearing companies and others mistakes.

I don’t know if it ever happened to you, but one thing i love to read is something called “Les perles du bac” basically all the stupidities that student writes in the end of high school exam. We all know as student, we mix up our classes and notes, and under the pressure, we happen to write some hilarious thing just to make the one who correct our paper laugh. Consciously or unconsciously, we all did it. but some of you might think that when you grow up and work, it changes…. Naaaaaaaaahhhhhh ^^. That wouldn’t be fun!

First one, happened to my father. He received a weird letter asking him for some money from the health insurance in France. So wondering what it was, he called them. After waiting a few minutes, he gets some human on the phone, gives him his insurance number and tells her his problem with that letter. At that moment he had the speaker on and as he was standing next to me, the woman said: “But Mr, You are dead!”…..  Now imagine the silence and like in manga, my father and me both looking at each other with faces like that … Someone could think she was joking but she was serious. So of course, u laugh when my dad raised the voice, asking her what the hell she was smoking, and saying that if he was dead, he would know about it first before them. That was a nice one.

Or another one, I was good friend with a guy on a game called Elfenlied. He was hated by many, but mostly envied because he was a strong and smart guy. One day after a while off the game, a common friend asked me how he was. So i told him that i only had news from him some month ago, and that he was fine and so on. And then comes the amazing remark, and the worse is he was serious..”What do you mean some month ago, aren’t you two married?” So i replied “In game you mean?” And he told me with all the seriousness of the world “No no, real i mean”… So there i say stop! Why no one invited me to my wedding!!!! And another friend some month later ask me the same, so i reply the same, that he was fine and so on. But then he said “hey how come i don’t see you together anymore, you two broke up? I thought you were living together, you were always together in game”. And now no one invited me to my divorce? O.O And since when was I only together with Elfenlied in game? We teamed up like twice, talked a few in guild, mostly in whisper (private messages) so where the hell did he saw that? So to make it short, within a few months, i was married and divorced  O.O and all that in real….

Or today, i call the formation center to know why after 3 weeks they didn’t reply to me. So i call them, and i give all the information they need, then they tell me (and try to imagine the proper scot accent
“You sent us your registration form but not the application form”. So i tell them
“But i never received any application form!”
“Ah? Oups, i guess we forgot, i will sen you one today then”
Lovely… Don’t tell me i forgot something when you can’t even think of sending me THAT form…..

The lovely mistakes of those people just make me laugh in the end. And if you have any you want to share, i will gladly add them ^_^

Intolerance, Racism, all the same.

Something really, but really pisses me off. I was raised by a catholic family, and alright I ended up atheist. But one thing my family taught me, is being tolerant, accepting other. And what life taught me is not to reject others for their differences, but on the contrary accept them for those. When you are being bullied, beaten all your life because of what you look like, you learn to be very defensive, but also not to do to others, what you don’t want them to do to you. And especially, to look past the appearance.

Well i see in the street, internet, or even chats things, too many people intolerant.

Let me tell you a little story. I went to look at a clip on YouTube, Queen: Who wants to live forever. It’s an amazing music but some moron posted a comment “He is gay” and another replied “No shit, he is gay? i can’t listen to him anymore, my parents raised me not to support homosexuals”

Now comes me being shocked. What does it have to do with anything? What he does in his bed has nothing to do with the music! Your boss may be into BDSM and you don’t know about it! And where is the problem being homosexual, lesbian, black, green, blue, red or whatever?

Let me teach you one thing, to all those who think they are better than others, to those who think being gay isn’t natural, that it’s against god and whatever bullshit reasons you will use. They are who they are, and everywhere you will find good and bad people, but do they throw their sexuality in your face? Do they throw their privacy in your face? Non they don’t. And what do you do? You throw your religion in their face.

I know several people who are gay or bisexual, and they are adorable. One of them, i can talk with him for hours, he got amazing culture and knowledge. He can talk to you about anything, and he is very tolerant, someone truly sweet and funny. Another one i know fought all his life and he got his own shop and brand. He is sweet and he keeps fighting everyday.
You think those are not natural? And what about all those so called gangsta bastard who do not have a problem raping weaker guys in jail?
You say if gays get married, it will destroy the sanctity of marriage? What about all those women, stars who get married for 3 days top max and divorce?
You say they are against god’s laws? Doesn’t YOUR damn god teach you to forgive, be tolerant and open your arms to mankind? And if it was SOooooooo against it, when why did your god create them?
You say it’s disgusting? What about those who beat their wives, rape people, beat children? Aren’t they disgusting?

And all of that is the same about people with another color or background as yourself. They are the same as you, except from another place. Some can be bad, i won’t say the opposite but everywhere you will find jerks, white, black, grey, or whatever.They have another religion than you so they are bad, why? They have different beliefs, true, but they could do the same to your because of your religion or color. Because remember well, there has been many wars in the past because of color or religion. And for those of you who still think “He is black/Muslim/Pakistani/japanese…….” (and here add whatever racial insult you might know to complete those dots) are NO BETTER that those who wasted millions of lives trying to force your own kind into their house.

I hate people, that is true, i hate them for rejecting what is different. But i still believe we could all live together, respecting eachother’s differences and learning from them. But so far, we can’t. Because some stupid people think it’s right to raise kids to hate whoever is different and go on a “war” against them. And to those I say, FUCK YOU. One day, you will learn it the hard way.

25 year old, 10 years of study in college and 5 in every single job possible.

Rant of today and i guess most job seekers will agree on that, companies are truly and deeply unreasonable about their expectation on candidates for a job. Let’s face it! They want you to be young (tons of energy and really motivated to work) so you will agree to do whatever work even the most annoying and painful one. They want you to have studies kinda like 10 years (In every single course, because everything is needed for the job they offer, you should know it…) of course, got high degree in whatever field, and  5 years experience minimum in the job they ask you to do (and now explain me when do you have time to get so much experience).

Am I the only one to find that stupid? Mostly when you study especially for high diplomas, you don’t have time to work in the same time, or maybe summer jobs. But that ain’t enough! They want more, but that experience, one day, we need to be given the chance to build experience. isn’t that true? For people who have been in that field for a while, alright they have the experience, but for young ones, not really.

And then when you MANAGE to pass to the interview, you get told that in the end, you are not fitted for the job, or that you don’t give the right image… So in the end, even if you have the qualification, experience, skills, if you don’t have a nice head that they will like, you are fucked. I don’t see why a punk having all the right degree and qualification wouldn’t be more suitable for that job than a moron with just a nice suit…..

And the worse is, when you are a foreigner. You get looked at as if you were unable to understand their language. Well i am sorry but if you go through all the trouble to learn the language, to write a CV in English, and do your best to even sound native, being treated like “I am sorry but you will have difficulties here with the language”… There I say, sorry? Try to speak 3 languages fluently then talk to me about not being able to follow a conversation!!!

For the junkies and other ones who do not look for a job or don’t want to work, i say, let them rot in their shit, but for people who DO want to work, please, to all of you who offer a job, stop being so judgmental, stop looking at us like we are some kind of dumb kids… And it’s not because we don’t have ALL the experience you require or ALL the qualifications you want that we can’t do a good job.

The Diamond Jubilee, what a piece of crap!

I guess today is the perfect day to talk about the queen of England. I live in Scotland and everyday they annoy us on SCOTTISH TV channels about that damn jubilee. Let’s make it clear, 95% of Scottish people do not give a damn about that woman nor recognize her as their queen. For them, she is the queen of ENGLAND, not Scotland. Last time she came, she got eggs thrown at her face, and they want Scotland to celebrate her 60 years being at the head of a country but not taking a single decision?

Let’s face it, the royal family of England is just here for the tabloids. Does they make laws or rule the country? OF COURSE NOT! It’s the Prime minister who got more power than the queen. So what is she here for? The tabloids? They get money to do nothing apart from waving at people. And they complain about them having too much tax to pay? Let’s remember that they ear what most of us would DREAM of earning.

But that jubilee is to celebrate her 60 years of power? What power? She got no power. So that jubilee could be just like her having a speech…. That would be too fun right? Basically big festivities, spend TONS of money (indeed soooooo wise seeing in what deep shit and economical shit the country is) for celebration of her reign. Are they damn mad? Ok maybe forget the economical problems with some celebrations, could be right but people still gotta pay for all that crap. And her, what is she gonna do? Sit…And that’s it. Ok she is old, but if she is so, then let the next generation reign then -,-.

English people are crazy. But if they want to waste money, their problem, if they want to show off an old hag, they shit! But keep it in THEIR country and do not bring it in Scotland. And because Scotland isn’t independent, the money THEY spend will affect Scotland too.

What a waste of time… I am french and at least in France we beheaded our kings and the monarchy. I wish this island would do the same (choose if you prefer to do it literally or just metaphorically)
