Today, I:

- Arrived at work (on ~3 hrs sleep) at 7:40 for an outreach only to discover there was no outreach and I didn't actually need to be there until 11:30. (Partly my fault; I should've double-checked the email I got.)
- Found out my laptop's hard drive is dead and they don't know how much data they can save. (And yes, we have an external hard drive backup, but it's developed this charming behavior where it will show you that it has files and folders in it, but when you try to access them, it says, "What files? I have no files.")
- Discovered a nail in my right rear tire, which they can't patch because the tires are too worn. So I need new tires.

Today, you are FIRED.

I take back the nice things I said about Netflix Watch Instantly. We're two episodes from the end of S1 of 30 Rock and now it's no longer available online, at least for us. I don't know if this is a throttling thing they do per account, or if they completely took it off Watch Instantly for everyone -- anyone with a Netflix subscription want to check if it's available for them?

GRRRRR. ARGH.

Yes or no: in a public laundry room (ie, in an apartment complex), if there are no empty washers/dryers available, but some loads are done and their owners have not retrieved them, is it OK to take out their finished laundry and put it on the counter or in a cart, so that you can do your own?

I say yes, because why should I have to wait around forever for people to get their laundry? But I just got yelled at by some random woman in our laundry room. There were no empty washers. One was done, so I took out the laundry and put it over on the counter and put my own stuff in. I moved over to another one that looked done (it shows the cost, rather than the number of minutes left), touched the laundry, and realized it was still dry. Cue the woman saying, "That's my laundry, I haven't put the soap in yet." I apologized and went to wait for the next couple washers to be done. After the woman finished loading her six washers, she turned and called over to me "Don't touch my stuff!" in this really accusing tone. I was like, "Okay..." She said, "You touched my stuff! Don't do it again!" I said, "Yes, I opened the washer, realized it was your stuff, and I said I was sorry." Then she went off on me for taking out that other load of laundry, how dare I, it could get stolen, etc etc etc. (Never mind that it could just as easily get stolen while in the washer; it's not like they lock or anything.)

Ugh. I had such a nice productive day and this is putting a really bad taste in my mouth. :(
