So I end up rolling very very slowly down the hall in my chair to the room which obviously looks retarded to do in an office and it's really hard with one foot stuck. My boss just looked at me like I was complete idiot as I tell her I really liked this chair.

    Good news is I just got free! So no worries bjmb friends.
    This is awesome.

    Update on shoelace gate:
    This morning I came in and my boss had put a sign on my chair with my name and she came over and said in the most sarcastic voice "Ken, I know how much you cherish this chair so i made you a sign so no one will ever ever take it from you"

    Fml.

    I love that after your original attempt to avoid embarrassment by not simply saying you were stuck, now everyone at your work thinks you're a weirdo, who also spends all day on a Blue Jays message board. Which is only half right!

    Kinda sounds fully right, he just didn't need to demonstrate it

    Personally I think I would have just stated the real reason and not worried about it. Chances are his boss laughs and tells him to get there as soon as he can. The backup plan would have been to just take the shoes off and walk to the conference room.

    There's a class action lawsuit for price fixing or something of products containing foam (chairs, beds, etc) in Canada purchased from 1999 to 2012. It's mentioned in articles from CTV/CBC etc if you Google it, so I assume it's legit.

    Apparently either the receipt if you still have it, or if not a picture of a tag giving the info (a product number or something, and proof that it was made in Canada). It's detailed there somewhere. I either scan or take pictures of the bills of all larger purchases so I have a digital copy, so it was easy for me.

    Yep, $20 unless you have a whole bunch of things. But hey, $20 is $20.

    This is too good not to share. Short story, my school's faculty just went on strike (yay unions) so this is an email that was sent out by the school to all students and faculty. I hope it isn't hard to see but use those zoom in powers if you want to see the very depths of human stupidity:

    Got this error message on a website today:

    Inside every server there is an internal error, just waiting for its time to shine. This one's ours. We vow to cease its infernal shining ASAP.
