which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing
yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever
That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.
Well that backfired spectacularly.
This is in every way perfect irony. It’s beautiful.
Today at the IT Desk I was running the supervisor shift. Generally help the regular agents with stuff, delegate, special projects, and whatever. I had been helping with a network issue on a computer (Good ol’ Snow Leopard not connecting because self-assigned IP Address) when another user needed help getting their laptop to have sound on our podiums. A regular worker went out who felt confident in their abilities.
About 10 minutes later they come back down and say that the woman wanted me to come upstairs and take a look. I get super nervous because it is in front of a class. Even with my many years of tech experience there is nothing quite as tense as 20 or so people watch you troubleshoot. It doesn’t help that these podiums are completely enclosed by a locked door so almost all troubleshooting is pushing buttons without much hands on.
I take the long elevator ride up to the classroom. Elevators scare me but I can’t run up 4 flights of stairs and keep composure.
The professor assures me that the students are working on other things. I nod and smile. I’m a student, I know any time an unknown entity enters the classroom I am somewhat attuned to what they are doing. So I check the usual culprits of volume issues. Sliders are up, jack plugged in, set as default device, and the correct set of buttons are selected. I start taking notes down with the regret of needing to log a damn call to these podiums once again.
As I leave feeling defeated my mind clears for a second and I shit you not the picture was like something from BBC’s Sherlock. I see the cable connecting her computer, I see the audio jack, I trace the jack from her computer to the box. There was a connection missing. I head back to the room, nervous but needing to make sure that I checked that this was not the answer. I couldn’t log a call and the techs come back laughing that it was just an unplugged cord.
I enter the room and explain that there was one last thing that wasn’t fitting correctly. I trace the cord back to where it enters the cabinet and sure enough, audio jack is unplugged. I plug it in and the sound pops on.
Why understanding anxiety is important. Sometimes if you have anxiety your brain fogs up and it can be hard to narrow down what you really need to check. Even obvious problems can be clouded by a busy brain.
