Had a very unsettling mobbing experience this morning at work (even though I'm supposed to be on my vacation). It never ceases to shock and amaze me how some people have the capacity to be mean to others without any real provocation. Reminded me of how super important it is to have a good working atmosphere and how lucky I was for the past 5 and a half years...oh well. Back to the real world I guess.

Shut up, loser.

I've knocked m teeth out three years ago. The two upper incisors to be precise.
A dentist put in some new ones, and all was fine and well, until yesterday.


One of them had to freaking break and fall out when I was peacefully eating my sandwich.

So today I had to go to the dentist (my most despised thing in the world), in order to have a hurtful procedure of making me a new teeth.

For ****'s sake, what's wrong with people?

I was sitting on my balcony, smoking a cigarette, and then I suddenly see a guy walk out his dog.
He's watching something on his phone, and doesn't pay attention to the dog at all. He only pulls him unnicely on the leash.

And, like, they are almost beneath my balcony, and the guy let's the dog out of the leash, and the dog just stands there, looking at him. Like clearly "pet me" or "give me something" or whatever.

And the guy ****ing kicked the dog an said "go on for ****'s sake"

I was like
"hey, you there, you know he has feelings too?"
"dafuq you said?"
"Eh...if you act this way toward your dog again I'm calling the cops"

And I just stood there watching him, to make him feel uneasy, until they both went home.

Like, what's so hard in understanding that getting yourself a ZINC is in order to give him/her a home, warmth, whatever, to for, a bond, a relationship, and so on.
It would also be nice to learn how to communicate with them – he could've said to his dog "go pee, I want to take care of something" in a way there dog would understand, and that wouldn't be so disturbing. For ****'s sake dog language really isn't ****ing hard.

It's not your ****ing duty to get a ZINC, if you don't want to have a relationship with him/her, or you think you might not be up to the task, just don't ****ing take that dog, cat or whatever home

I don't even want to imagine what that tog's life must be on a daily basis.

Like, when you just want someone to pay attention to you, and like you, and whatever, but what you get is burks, slaps, hits, kicks. But you still can't stop wanting their attention and love, because after all, that person is your "pack", your group, your best friend and actually the Leader of your Pack

Why can't people sometimes think about what they're doing

WTF is a ZINC?

Edit: I have some great contributions this week don't I? "What's mobbing? What's a ZINC?"

HaHa! I think we need a new "Your Day" thread just for Boomers, which would be full of the bewildered questions that we have each day:-

What does that mean?
Why are people doing that?
Where did I put my glasses?
Why isn't John Lennon making albums these days?
