one of my dad’s first jobs out of college was at this company. it doesn’t matter what kind. a business company that did business things. anyway, he worked in the media department of this business company. now, they didn’t have computers at this company. supposedly instead they had an army of old women with typewriters and when you needed shit typed you just kind of handed it to them and they did it for you and it was that easy.
one day the business company got their first computer. they only got one computer and no one fucking used it because it was magic or something. my dad needed to type up a ledger or something to that effect so he decided to use the computer. to his own surprise he had a decent grasp on it and completed the ledger.
he printed it and was waiting to show it to his boss when one of the typewriter ladies told him “oh son, you shouldn’t have printed that they’ll just make you re-do the whole thing.” appropriately my father replied, “oh, it’s okay, it’s on the computer”. she scoffed at him and left. but then when he had to re-do everything as expected it took him under a half hour to do so, to much shock of the typewriter lady.
from then on my dad was the “computer guy” to the point where he literally moved most of his stuff from his media department cubicle to the computer cubicle. after a while as his boss saw how convenient computers were he bought several more of them. some business stuff happened and the media department became obsolete. my dad’s boss sent someone to fire everyone in the media department area which he did.
however, my dad had relocated to the computer cubicle so he wasn’t there for the firing and no one ever noticed and he kept his job.
so now whenever my dad tells me to get off the computer i have a valid comeback that computers saved his life and they’re a force for good, goddammit.

Ok so now I’m on the look out for lesbians with hair bows in the back
I just like how the bow on the left is a ‘signal and a chllange’ it’s like yeah, Betty’s been going steady with Tommy for a few weeks now, but let’s see if Ronny can step up his game before Betty becomes a right bow kind of girl
can i use ‘she wears her bow in the back’ as a euphemism now?

The only thing wrong with sex?
When it’s not consensual.
Because that’s not sex. That’s rape.
