My former employer refuses to pay out my vacation time per state law. Left a month ago but they have not disabled my company email account.
Small shop so no active directory but still shocked they have not disabled my access. It’s only outlook/ office 365 no access to network drives.
What kind of small, petty and (mostly) legal havoc can I cause?
Something annoying but causes no monetary damage.1
i am blessed to be friends with this totally awesome guy as my homie. He is your usual school topper(its been 15 years since we left the school, but that's his personality) , but he is the smartest of them all , making him a psychotic level dangerous guy.
So i attribute school toppers with their ability to mug up and remember stuff. I have realised the difference between me and the guy that used to top in my class was just that i refused to learn/remember the things that i didn't understood/liked. but they did it anyway without getting a satisfactory answer for the question "Why do i need to learn this?" (Yeah i know that photosynthesis or atomic reactions are something happening everyday around me and impacting me indirectly, but if my mind was set to become a computer guy at 15, i couldn't care less about those stuff)
But this guy... is genius... he not only learns/mug up the boring stuff, he adores that information as you would adore your kid. He will look at you in disgrace if you called any of those information as boring or useless cos he respect each and every reasoning to a stupid concept very very much .
Probably why he is a winner in life in so many race and currently in top 0.05% earners of our 2nd most populated country in the world, and i am still struggling
So why am i telling you all this? I again had another 1-1 with this guy where i learned tons and irritated the fuck out of this guy XD1
I had some issues with a polygamist woman here in Utah that really made me think. Well, my things were located inside of the house. I had been a tenant at the house for three years. Wow, come to think of it, it was exactly five years ago when I moved my stuff in there.
After living there for three years, she decided to change the locks. Why? Something in her brain broke. It is the only logical explanation. I keep thinking, "She can't do this. It is illegal what she's doing. She can't do this." I call the cops, they say it's a "civil matter." Well, she can't do this.
Not only could she do it, she did it. Without any consequence at all whatsoever. My home of three years, one day, not my home. She takes my things, puts them in the garage & then changes the code. I call the police again. I wait for the police to show up.
Three hours later the police show up. Zero help. I can't get my things. I have to file some bullshit. I kept thinking, "This is illegal what she is doing, she can't just do this without getting in trouble."
Next thing I know, her lawyer is telling me that I need to go through him to get my things out. At roughly $30 an email. He wants to know what belongings of mine are in the garage. I tell him everything. He asks what specifically. Everything. That is $120 right there. Which is wrong.
I get a lawyer. That was no help. Another $2,500 down the drain. I call the police to get my things. Wait around for three hours. They come by & tell me I need to wait for a court date a month or so down the road.
Well, during that time, waiting for the police, she takes pictures of me in my car. Her lawyer then says I am stalking her. Whatever. I tell the police. They tell me there is no way a judge would sign off on a stalking charge because I was sitting out front waiting for the police.
I get a job at a law firm (not a lawyer) for one day. ONE DAY. I GOT HIRED & THEN FIRED THE NEXT DAY. Why you ask? Cause my background check said I had a stalking injunction. I was fired for stalking. Stalking.
I sat in my car, waiting for the police, to help me get my things out of the garage. I called the police to avoid this bullshit. The police tell me, no judge will sign off on it. I get fired.
Well, that's great. Eventually, I get the pieces put back together. Get to have a bunch of LDS missionaries move like 8 truck loads of my things into a tiny ass storage unit I am renting for $75 a month. I paid for that thing for two years.
What happens next? eBay steals my last chance at any chance of having a relatively sad life. eBay steals money for two items I sold to pay rent, my car, the damn storage unit with all of my things, my phone...
Car gets repossessed. Phone gets shut off. THE STORAGE UNIT WITH MY THINGS THAT I GOT A STALKING CHARGE WAITING FOR THE POLICE TRYING TO RETRIEVE & RUINED CAREER OVER...
It gets auctioned off. Now here I am. Like an idiot trying to make a podcast. Oh nothing, I just lost everything. No big deal. Just threw a decade of my life's work down the drain. Clothes, valuables, whatever. Polygamist woman? Still living happily ever after. No consequences.
I guess, maybe one consequence. Her lawyer thought I wasn't going to follow through, but I did. I was going to get that stalking charge removed so I could be a slave for an hourly wage at a shit job paycheck to paycheck. I only lasted there two months. It was the only job that I just got up & left. Walked right out.
However, when the hearing to dismiss the stalking charge came around... the hearing her lawyer thought I would not follow through with. I lit those two up. She ends up crying, her lawyer Hanks & Peterson ends up being a bumbling idiot for an hour and a half.
Drags her into court and humiliates her & himself. Sure the stalking charge was dismissed. I show the law firm I was fired from, with no reply. Now I am about to be homeless. Probably a few weeks out from street life. But oh well. It was an okay life up until the finish like here.
Check out The Bling Viera Podcast. I talk all about it in past few episodes. Biggest crock of shit I have ever experienced. But it did feel good to bring it down for minute. Even though I lost everything. It felt get to get it dismissed & call out her & her lawyer for being evil.
TL;DR: Polygamist woman loses her mind. Lawyer takes advantage of her for billable hours. I get a stalking charge after police tell me it won't happen. Lose career & everything else.1
Boy if they'd just kept things intriguing and lacking their starkly contrasted form of evil spirited sense of fucked up chomo humor even their worthless lives would be more interesting heh the difference between being intrigued and quietly miserably morally horrified remembered today
And then the dull bored unhappy distaste for a time period when you monsters converted everything over to some.queer disgusting stupid myopic single sighted soulless humor that reflects the true inhuman robotic obsessed and pointless nature of.your fucking existences. I won't say lives
There is nothing living in there
Honed marble countertops
Honed marble countertops has a low thermal conductivity, which means that heat from your kitchen appliances will be evenly distributed throughout the surface of the countertop, keeping your kitchen cooler during the hot summer months, and warmer during the cooler months. If you want your outdoor kitchen to look elegant, choose a material with low thermal mass so that heat is efficiently conducted away from your kitchen. If you want your outdoor kitchen to be as durable as your indoor kitchen, choose a material with a higher tensile strength, which means it'll be able to withstand heavier loads and weather conditions better.
If we assume everything was not a complete game the first time which I think is safe to assume
This is likely explainable as some jackoff followed the standard mo of likely laying off people being intentionally stressed out likely including some that don't deserve it and pushing them out for pleasure and profit
Some other tech company was just recently doing the same thing4
