Cultural differences will be noticeable on this board, heads up.
Like what?

Actually, I haven't been killed early since the Gameroom anniversary.

Look ATPG, I promise I won't be racist just because these guys have an uglier coloured forum. I respect lesser cultures.

Just joking, I know you all are actually slaves, that are too poor to have culture.

(Also a joke, I do that kind of thing. :P)

Hi visor

I'm seeing a less-wordy, more ... visory repeat of ATPG's first game here in my future, where I get the pleasure, should things turn out that way, of patiently trying to explain to all and sundry why your behavior is not actually scummy.

BTW, Visor, your limit on voting yourself or referring to yourself as scum on this board is once per game. Do it twice and the sharks with lasers for eyes chew off your feet.

Not like the natives, and very stubborn.

Yes, this is going to work out in entertaining fashion for someone. Most likely me.

So my three days off turned into being woken up in the middle of sleep yesterday to go down and get the store ready for inspection since the RGM couldn't do it, followed by being unable to sleep since by the time that was over, it was evening and that's when I am awake, followed by being told oh by the way, you're working tomorrow morning, so I'm ready for work now, followed by oh by the way you've got to cover a closing shift because the other shift manager can't be relied on for jack, followed by me saying I needed some goddanged sleep before that shift.

Supposedly, I still have one day off, tomorrow. Will do my best to finish this then. Jesus tap-dancing Christ, it's the game that I am not allowed to launch. Your gods have forbidden it I tells you.

It's entirely possible that several of us may expire of old age before this game actually gets started, so there's a pretty good chance a spot will open up

Anybody want a soda or something?

'Cause I'm, uh, I'm going up to the machine and I thought maybe I would get something... since I had something sweet and i thought i would get something salty...


...


Oh, uh... I finished debugging the phones, you know, I was gonna, so I did, I debugged the phones. I thought maybe I should tell ya that the system's gonna be compiling for, ah, 18 to 20 minutes some of the minor systems, they might go on or off but it's ah, nothing to worry about, just a simple thing.


Oh hey, they uh... made me work tomorrow as well so my three days off in a row ceased to exist so now I'm working a nice, uh... what is it... oh yes. 10 days in a row.

And yet I am still going to launch this freakin game. You laugh, but it is somehow going to happen.

I get the feeling you need to change the title of the game.

Something like

"I'm too busy to run this" Mafia

would meet the requirements of the Trade Descriptions Act.

How about "I'm too busy to host this mafia?"

All I have left is typing and sending out role PMs, by the way. And if cruel fate would give me a couple hours of uninterrupted time...



Also, you beat me by three minutes MHaye. Damn you.

This is all due to the other shift manager being fired.

And so, after only a year and 4 months, I am now the second highest ranked person in one of the busiest pizza places in Orlando. We go through people like toilet paper. I've literally seen no less than 30 people be terminated in the last month alone, and dozens more in the past few months before that.

It's a blood sport; a last-man-standing, battle to the death.

Where I used to work, and will work later in life, they had people who didn't last a day.

Yep. We've had numerous people in the past month who have clocked in for the first time, for the last time. And I see their Schwartz is as big as mine...

Everyone already got their role PM. You're lying about it, and therefore, that proves you're mafia.

I don't know what the rest of you are going on about...I got my PM, and boy is it a doozy!

I'm not going to quote it, but I will say that those of you with an even number of vowels in your user names had better watch out!

For now...

It might change later...

If someone does something scummy...

But it's an earlier vote...

And I believe in vote early, vote often...

No-one's really pinging me right now...

I may not be around at Day end, I'll be on vacation for the month of August.
