  • The "pub chat" thread. *NSFW*

    Figured Friday would be a good day to start this thread.

    Please read the disclaimer before posting
    Quote:
    This thread is intended for general dicussion, on whatever is on your mind. Rants, good things, current events or random observations that don't quite fit in anywhere else - expunge your intellectual flotsam here. Whatever random thoughts and tidbits that you may sometimes just want to throw out there ( or just get out of your head ) that'd usually get shutdown for not being relevant, we welcome you.

    This is not an open invitation to just whore and troll and shit all over the carpet, but an exercise in self moderation as well as being a receptical for all the shit that is thrown out by the the cleaning staff here.

    This is not a rebellion against the PTBs of PSB. This is meant to be a place to focus the 'bad element' that create so much work for you all.

    People need catharsis. Give them a small recreational area of their own.

    Here you may be NSFW without spoilers. This thread is NSFW. Not only that; this thread is NSFWM. Yes, Not Suitable For Whining Maggots.

    Here, in good fun and jest, you may as Saf used to say, get you hate on in a civilised, tongue-in-cheek manner. Use your full range of expression and explore the depths of your creativity, insight or depravity.

    Whilst the above is certainly condoned do follow a few real world rules;

    Don't make a joke you wouldn't make in person.

    Don't make a personal threat in anything but jest, if you're at the point of making serious threats, get off the internet and go fly a kite or learn some debating skills.

    Dropping an anvil on someone is generally not a serious threat, but a literary device to convey frustration or displeasure at someone's repeated idiocy. I have an anvil but am incapable of actually lifting it to a height capable of actually dropping it on someone. Thereby making the threat invalid and fanciful. This means the "abusing a member" infractions are not required here.

    On that note, abusing your member is not a infraction worthy event nor will it make you go blind.

    Partaking in this thread you acknowledge you will not do any of the things contained in (but not limited to) the following list:

    Get butthurt,
    cry,
    piss,
    moan,
    whinge,
    whine,
    tattletale,
    use the report button
    or generally bahave like a fucking fairy.

    If you are likely to have any such impulses, please for your own sake and the sake of the children, read no further.

    Enjoy peeps.

    Oh and no ibtls.
    Thats negative nancy stuff.

    Quesion for my pub peeps:

    Every job I have issues with is when customers bring in their own clothing, it isn't designed for wha i need to do to it.

    Ultimately i get in a discussion for an hour brfore they convince me to have a crack, I do it and get it done but it takes me hours more.

    I hate these jobs and they are unprofitable, should i stop taking them on?

    I take them on ultimately because i am REALLY nice and in the hope the customer will come back with a less crap order.

    (please ignore any missing letters crap keyboard)

                  I don't think we'll ever see a day when men can talk out their differences, regardless of their branch on the tree of power. It's still to easy to just grab the branch handed to you from above and whack the bloke below off. Another guy is just going to climb up again and say the same thing in time and you'll be right back where you started, there's only so much whacking off you can do before your time is totally taken up by it.

                  It seems all utterly futile.
                  This is general advice only and does not take into account your individual objectives, financial situation or needs (your personal circumstances). Before using this advice to decide whether to purchase a product you should consider how appropriate it is in regard to your personal circumstances.

                    Can you charge a bit more for these jobs where peeps bring their own stuff or just give an estimate and charge T&M to make it profitable?

                      Charge them for labour, an at exorbitant rate.

                      They'll get the picture.

                        State your position clearer.

                        "I cannot do this because your shirt is not designed to have <insert whatever boring stuff they want> done to it. It will ruin the shirt because <invent a reason>. Look, I know you've obviously bought these shirts, so I'll discount the price of our merch, because it'd take twice as long on your shirts anyway and I'd have to pass on that per hour charge to you."

                          I was thinking this as well, but ultimately people just don't seem to want to pay the actual difference in cost to me.

                          I guess i could try, have a 'delicates' charge if they shy at the price i guess i have lost nothing.

                          I haven't tried this

                          I don't like to come across as the hard seller, certainly valid though.

                          These customers are always the ones that come in saying "I just bought this 3 seconds ago I want xyz done to it by the day after tomorrow" so it makes it hard to organize quality items for them.

                          And they are always the "awww c'mon type" when I refuse the first 3 times :/
