That’s it, I’m fucking done giving out advice. Every time I seem to give any advice the person asking just says ok then either asks someone else, a lot of times right in front of me, or just says that will not work.
For the most part I get this crap at work. Take today for instance. I make aeronautical charts, we deal with airports so we do a lot of sketches of airports from surveyors. Our charts are 4"x7" or smaller so we really have shrink down the drawings. So today one of the women I work with asks me how to do it. I say the easiest way is to shrink it down on the copier in sections and digitize it that way.
Instead, the second I show her how to shrink it to the proper size she goes and asks someone else. What the fuck did you even get me out of my cube hell for then? If you don’t believe me then skip the middle man and ask someone else.
That was just today, she does the same thing all the time. Not that she’s dumb or anything she, and others, like to ask me how to do something then just go and ask someone else.
The same type of shit happened when I tried to show my ex-wife how to ride a motorcycle. I tried to show her just the basics, she didn’t believe me, went to take a class, which is what I said to do in the first fucking place, then comes back and tells me I’m right. Well no shit, I took the fucking same class a couple of years ago so I should hope I know a bit about what I’m talking about.
The same shit would happen with other things too, playing pool I get asked something, and I suck at pool, and that person would say that can’t be right and ask someone else. Hell, once when bowling I got asked by my ex how I throw my spares, so I told her, she said no that’s not how you do it. I pulled out the book that I got the info from and fucking showed her.
So that’s it, I’m playing dumb, I don’t know shit about nothing any more. Fucking people just piss me off.
