I dropped my parents off at the airport this morning. Stopped the car, got the suitcases out of the boot, a quick kiss on the cheek each, and a quick message on my phone, then on my way; but was stopped by a boom gate with a ticket machine. At first I thought “Was I supposed to get a ticket somewhere?”, so I reversed all the way back to park and got out and walked over to the entrance but found nothing. Watched a taxi driver go up to it, wait a second, and then have it open for him, so I walked back to try again.
For 13 minutes, the charge was $12, so I put a 20 in the machine. As soon as I did that, I noticed the sign saying No change given. To be fair, I did get $8 parking credit as change, so I guess it didn't really steal all of my money; only most of it. Maybe I should be a bit less slow and pay a bit more attention, but if this helps someone avoid a parking-fine sized parking-ticket, I'll be happy.
Not sure if it's been acknowledged or posted before. I ran into this incredible text, albeit from Aerith, in chapter 9.
RNGesus who art in gacha heaven,
Gumi be thy name.
Thy rainbows come.
Thy pulls be done.
On step-ups or by exchange tickets,
Give us this day our daily pull,
and forgive us of our Post-pull Depressions,
as we forgive those who rate Esther against us,
Bells, frogs, big cherries,
Peter Pan, magic cheese,
Lead us not into GLEX temptation,
but deliver us from Neo Visions.
Sending all the good vibes in the lifestream to everyone pulling for AC Cloud and AC Tifa, good luck!
For everyone else saving your lapis till Neo Vision Cloud, all the more power to you!

Edit: Wow, thank you for the golds!!
I’ve played the game through once already and have not started my second play through, at what point in the game would you say it’s a good point to stretch out playing by doing a lot of travelling, hunting, challenges, collecting clothes and guns etc. I play act 1 and 2 about 6 months before playing the rest of the game, taking a bit of a gaming hiatus in between so I didn’t fully grasp the story of the gang, loving the cutscenes and storyline on the second play through. So much I missed!

QOTD: What's your favorite food to order at a restaurant?
From the Show "Brooklyn nine-nine"
Jake gets a job offer with the FBI from his new Captain, whom he doesn't trust very much.
After that, this dialog with his friends follows:
Amy: So, what did you say?
Jake: I told her I’d rather stick my entire head inside a
giraffe’s long blonde butt than accept a job offer from
Terry: You said that?
Jake: In my head. In my mouth, I said I would think about it
and get back to her. She’ll get the message when I
What does Jake mean with his last phrase? In the dictionarys "dilly-dally" is synonym for "to linger". So for me this phrase doesn't make much sense...
ty for your help!

I used to work in a call center for an online company that sells party supplies and novelties. This is a story I posted years ago on a different site.
Me: (company name), this is (my name). How may I help you?
Caller: Umm, if we placed an order today, could we get it by Monday? I mean, do you have a next day shipping?
Me: Yes, we have a next business day shipping. (glance at clock on computer, 11:54) However, you only have five minutes to get an order placed to be able to get it on Monday.
Caller (talking to somebody else in background): She said they can get it to us Monday if we get the order in in five minutes, do you want to do it? <pause> Okay, I want to go ahead and place an order.
Me: Do you have a promo code to use today?
Caller: I don't know. (asks other person with her about promo code while I enter the "no promo code" code trying to get everything done as fast as possible to get order entered before noon)
Me: What's your day time phone number?
--skip my verifying/entering info at lightning speed since there is a time crunch---
Me: I'm ready for your items. May I get the item number please.
Caller: I don't know any item numbers. We are looking to get some "MBL team" items. I saw some napkins on your website, but I don't know what else you have.
Me: (doing a search on team name) I see the napkins, you get 36 napkins for five dollars. How many units do you need?
Me:One unit for five dollars. And what's the next thing you are looking for?
Caller: I saw some plates that had baseballs on them
Me: (search baseball plate) Okay, did you want the dinner or desert plates?
Me: You get 18 plates for four fifty, how many units would you like.
Caller: I don't know. (repeats what I said to other person and asks her how many she thinks) Just one, no better make it two.
Me: Two units for nine dollars, and your next item you'd like.
Caller: Hmm, do you have any streamers?
Me: (search red streamer) Yep, We have a 500 ft red streamer roll for 3.99 or an 81 ft red streamer roll for 99 cents. Which would you like?
Caller: Do you have streamers that are red and white?
Me: Streamers with both red and white on it?
Me: I don't know,let me look....
Me: No I'm sorry we don't
Caller: Let me get the 99 cent one
Me: And how m... keep reading on reddit ➡
I can't find the meaning.
One dic said it's like "floating" , another one it's like "wasting a time"
Thanks in advance
