    [23:09:23] This Fuckin Guy : omg
    [23:09:50] This Fuckin Guy : Am I the only one that thinks that corporations make their employees dress like mini corporations?
    [23:10:14] This Fuckin Guy : Every single person who works for a large, mega corporation could easily pass for a corporation themselves.
    [23:10:46] This Fuckin Guy : The hair, the shirts, the ties, the look...it just says, "I work for a corporation. Look at me being all corporation-y."
    [23:12:13] This Fuckin Guy : You could ask these drones what their name is, and if they introduced themselves as "Hi, I'm [x] inc. My customers are my number 1 priority," I wouldn't even raise an eyebrow.
    [23:12:56] This Fuckin Guy : There must be a reason why corporations do this to their employees. I sort of find the topic fascinating.
    [23:13:27] This Fuckin Guy : There's a noticeably strong undertone of "You're NOT going to express yourself as an individual. We'll be having none of those shenanigans."
    [23:13:56] This Fuckin Guy : "This is a business...we're a brand...and we expect you to dress like this because you are representing our BRAND."
    [23:14:25] This Fuckin Guy : It's actually companies taking ownership over people. Once employed, they do sort of behave as it they 'own' you.
    [23:14:47] This Fuckin Guy : Not all companies do this, of course.
    [23:14:54] This Fuckin Guy : Most newer ones dgaf.
    [23:15:04] This Fuckin Guy : Rant over

    [11:14:20] @ Tezcatlipoca : I'm genuinely curious what specific experience, if any, engendered this diatribe.
    [11:15:02] @ Tezcatlipoca : Hello, by the way.
    [11:15:44] @ Tezcatlipoca : A shameful confession: I lurked on DA for the first time in ages just now. I guess you kinda reminded me of that site and the fact that not everyone there is full tard.
    [11:16:11] @ Tezcatlipoca : Apparently BadNews88 tried to kill himself? I wonder how much of that thread was true, if any. Dude has always been loldramatic.
    [11:16:42] @ Tezcatlipoca : He created a thread about carrying a concealed gun and wanting to use it to blow away the teenager standing too close to him in a check out line at the grocery store.
    [11:17:23] @ Tezcatlipoca : This was right before I left. Guido kinda challenged him on it and said "I dare you to shoot someone." Wish I could remember what came of that, if anything.
