This is different than a live-action show or movie where each role is usually cast individually. In that case, if you've got an Indian character you should cast an Indian actor. But Azaria voiced half the town. The idea that one comedian can voice people of various ages and backgrounds and it's tot...

Earlier this year, I was formally written up for my zone not being perfect. One of the main things I got in trouble for was spending too much time in Shoes and not enough in Jewelry and Accessories (I did so because Shoes is the messiest.) In my manager's mind, I had all day to go through my three d...

^ You're right. That's what I had been doing. I guess it was because I finally had the opportunity to focus on one department instead of being pulled all over the place that I slipped up and started to care for a moment. What upset me was how instantly an authority figure materialized to crush that ...

I used to have lofty goals like owning my own animation studio.

Now it's more like:

-- Finish drawing my children's picture book
-- Find a better paying, less stressful job
-- Be able to afford to go to Disneyland when I want to

You might think I meant to write, "Manager angry for at me for NOT cleaning my counter." No. This is the topsy-turvy nature of the store I work at. Management is obsessed with "THE ZONE." (A.k.a., facing the shelves, or straightening up the merchandise.) I agree that it's importa...

I can understand feeling that way. I'm an "essential worker," so I was never locked down. I think I would like working from home, but I have no idea how to get that kind of job. The first few weeks, the store I work at was eerily empty, but there were like a few people who came in and bump...

^ I'm glad to see there are other people with similar feelings. I can't stand the hard sell method and the people doing it seem to be unaware (or don't actually care?) that they're repelling me instead of drawing me in. Likewise, I live in a "Blue" state, so at least when it comes to the p...

And yes totally okay to disagree over :). And I also concur that a person has to want to vote as forcing will just cause disengenuous votes. Thanks :). I see there are extenuating circumstances involved here, so forgive me for being blunt initially. It's just that I can't stand anyone shoving polit...

After the "it hurts my heart" bit he started trying to be friendly again. True, that's the only data I have, but I'm going to expect that indicates a compromise may be in the making, even if merely an "agree to disagree" style compromise. I would have liked that, but unfortunate...

Tell your friend to go f**k himself. Sometimes I'd like to. It's a complicated situation. He is my ride home from work at Midnight, as I don't drive. I met him when he was a cab driver, when there were still cabs around here. I also pay him for it, but much less than I would pay for an Uber or Lyft...

I hate politics and I don't vote. I have a friend who keeps pestering me about it. He told me that he doesn't just want me to vote, he wants me to vote specifically for the Democrats. He goes through phases where he leaves me alone about it and then something in the news prompts him to start up agai...

Something I've noticed lately: the absolute confidence that partisans have that they are on the correct side is matched only by a total lack of confidence that they'll succeed. (I'm in the U.S., so I'm talking about Democrats and Republicans.) When faced with (what they view as) a crisis, never does...

In my early 20s, I got paranoid about giving other people germs. Due to severe allergies, I blew my nose all the time and my stepfather made a comment that I was probably giving everyone germs. I worried about it a great deal. I began washing my hands excessively and carrying disinfectant wipes ever...

I've been obsessed with Disneyland since I was a child. When I was a teenager, I decided I was completely done with it and moved on to being obsessed with musical theater, but that only lasted a couple years and then I was obsessed with Disneyland AND musical theater. I even have recurring dreams ab...

I work at a retail store where customers bring large numbers of children and often allow them to run amok. I think that's one of the reasons our store is always such a mess, making things difficult for us employees. For example, sometimes they pull down the pegs that the shoes hang on and play with ...
