If I want to pay to be pissed off, I'll drive to work.

Since I don't have a smartphone, I didn't know about this, but I'm with AD on this one.
Oftentimes I'm out backpacking where there is no service whatsoever, can't even make a call. If I had a smart phone I might want to play music or something, and this would disallow me to do that.
Qubhed, she better treat you right or I swear to god I'll kill her.
Unions cost companies money so of course a smart business would just do things right so a union doesn't come in. They cost money because they can cause delays and encourage mediocrity. They also cost lots of money in attorneys fees. If your talking about a union that represents workers in corporations, don't ever go to a union for pay or benefits. Unions don't call shots, they don't set salaries, they don't determine benefits (unless of course they come from the union and still, good luck with them being any better than obamacare). Every corporation in America that has a labor attorney pays their non-union employees the same as their unionized employees. They have the same benefits. They have the same rules and procedures. Two differences:all of them? why do people trust corporations to not rape them for every last thing they are worth? they do it to everything else, both historically and in the present.
The threat of the union is what keeps my non union job honest and equal w/o having to pay union dues.
1. Unionized workers can file grievances. Is that an advantage? Not really. Your shop steward and local business agent come to an agreement and most of the time, it's agreeing with management. If you violated a policy (which are all in the union contract) they won't give a damn (open and shut).
2. Unionized workers won't receive any type of payment incentives that non-union employees will be eligible for (the unions never want them, it encourages working harder/might get the job done in less hours -- less pay for the union). The unions need dues to subsist. I've personally seen the Teamsters open up a negotiation with "give us Dues check off and you can write the rest of the contract".
For anyone that doesn't know, dues check off means the employer authorizes the union to automatically deduct your union dues from your paycheck and electronically transfer it straight to the union. Otherwise the union has to try to collect from everybody and that costs them money in collecting and processing. Dues check off is a complete win for the union and once they're paid, they really don't care.
If you are the minority union worker that works at a port or mega-trade, you're doing OK and congrats on that hook up (since it takes a hook up to even get into one of those jobs). Retail/hotel/security/warehousing -- you lose your ass. Don't work in these industries for pay unless you plan on becoming mid-senior level management.

also, you can text voice messages. Recording a memo and doing it later would suck.
I need to email a voice recording to a student practicing for a speech contest
That may be a highly particular circumstance, but you'll never convince me it's not stupid that there's a perfectly good file sitting on my phone that I can't do anything with because the only way to access it is through the app I recorded it in, which can only play it or delete it. And even if it's particular, I seem to be running into this /type/ of problem left and right just doing day-to-day stuff since I got the phone. Even if other people don't it still just seems...stupid.
Never heard textroverts and I feel that the definition of trolling is wrong.
in other unrelated news i've wacked off 5 times in the last 2 days. Thrice yesterday and twice today. lately i've legitimately gone a week before realizing 'man, i havn't beaten off in more than week, i probably should' but in the last 2 days everything i've seen has made me want to pop open porn hub and rub one out. I'd have hit 3 today already but had to work a bit late, but hey, the nights still young and murdering an asian guy is giving me half a chubby atm.
If you subscribe to the informal it's an eggscelent word.
Part of the issue is getting out of there as he's said in the past.
I'm a little curious as to where your GF fits into all of this. It seems like you two are committed to each other in the future, where does she live? Why cant you two move in together or away together? Sell everything you own if it gives you a few thousand dollars to get out. It's fucking hard but maybe you need to go get a $8 an hour job at McDonalds, work there for 3 months while your contract runs out and don't spend a single dime of the McDonalds money and you should have enough to move away. It will fucking suck and you'll be tired but better to do it at 28 than 35.
Arizona is plenty cheap and beautiful with no lack of jobs. Just saying, I would never move back to the DC area unless I was making several hundred thousand a year.
I'll play devils advocate as a tech nerd.
I still want local storage for my music because streaming sucks + uses bandwidth.
Also want it for single player games, and storing my TBs of photos (which is admittedly a corner case).
There's a lot of cases where I want local storage for very specific reasons.
Cloud storage kicks ass though for a ton of things - esp. important documents, code, bookmarks, jpg photos (vs raw), etc. etc.
