@adamwesv I should also probably stop getting laid off from my job after 25 dedicated yrs, stop searching for work daily for seven straight months since being laid off, and stop supporting my adult daughter and my ex wife, both who are battling cancer, and can’t work themselves…. Then perhaps I wouldn’t whine about $100 conditional irks, cause I wouldn’t be “poor.”
IRKS used to be a cheap thrill, but I can’t justify $100 worth of merch to get one.
@adamwesv@jmhsrv Your daughter and ex are very lucky you are supporting them through cancer. It can be incredibly difficult to work depending on how sick treatment makes you and the safety net in this country sucks bricks.
@jmhsrv@Kidsandliz@Kyeh you do realize you are responding to a comment where I am very literally “dishing it out,” right? Thanks. Now I missed out on some Robert Irvine Insulated Tumblers and 3-pack of Racing Roaches.
@adamwesv@Kidsandliz “ i can see how it comes off as nasty.” So you simply take pride in being an asshole? What a miserable way to walk through life. I feel sorry for your pathetic life.I may be dirt poor, but at least I have compassion.
@adamwesv@jmhsrv I am not sure what your problems are but I am not sure why you seem to think it is OK to upset people, put them down… @jmhsrv wasn’t complaining, asking for help… he was just, like many others have, that he was bummed about the current IKR arrangement. His ex-wife is a very lucky person that he is helping her. Many would not do that.
@jmhsrv@thechinglish The economic downturn is happening in some employment sectors, although not in others. The job growth is more in minimum wage service industry jobs and often you aren’t hired for them if you have an education and held professional jobs. As I have been told more than once, they want to know why you are applying and figure you will just quit when a job you actually want comes along. As his daughter is an adult he may also be dealing with age discrimination. It takes people 55+ about 3 times longer to find a job after being laid off than younger people.
@adamwesv Nobody ever asked for your time or opinion. Grow up, look in the mirror and realize who the actual “woe is me” victim is here. Its the guy who interjects his bloated ego assumptions into other folks lives when not asked, then gets pissed off when he is called out for his shit. Youre not done here or anywhere else. You will never be done. That big ass black hole in your life you try to fill with your “I dont sugar coat anything” approach to life will never be filled or satisfied. You know it, I know it, and all of Meh knows it…
I rushed to get everything done by the end of the MEHrathon… And now there 24 MORE hours? Where’s the rest button so I can wipe out yesterday’s buying, take in today’s “offerings” and maybe find something really useful? ?
Loving the Mehrathon once again with these “IRK Challenges”. After so many years of not getting an IRK, this weekend’s Mehrathon allowed me to get my third IRK ever. I was fortunate enough to find $100+ on things I wanted/wanted to try out, plus I’m getting free Meh can coolers and free shipping to boot so it’s win win.
30 x 45 “self-healing” cutting mat, rolled up (will have to wait to see if it heals itself flat; I actually need something else self-healing when cutting in the kitchen)
size XL 3-pk Members Only performance boxer briefs
size M Members only pajamas/loungers
[I’m size L. If the sizes had been reversed, I could have made do; but who wants briefs falling down when in a crowd? Should I work on gaining or losing? ]
Vitagoods TARE Digital Kitchen Scale, looks dispensary quality?
sand-colored IRK tote bag in design I hadn’t noticed before.
@phendrick haha, those healing mats ARE handy if you do crafts but not so much if not. Though I have even used them for cutting say cardboard or paper with a snap-off wallpaper type knife. Saves cutting through to whatever you are using as a base.
I vote on definitely not gaining weight for the use of IRK crap. I have select donation spots…as of late, I donate to the university in town that has a sustainability free store for the students. They love me there with all the IRKs and BOCs I get, along with penny shopping. haha
