Fish - HR - Fired

Today my manager took my team out for lunch and I ordered fish and chips.

Sean started making jokes and was saying how I was going to smell like a fish all day.

When we got back to the office I walked by two girls and one of them started laughing and asked the other girl if she smelled fish.

The other girl said yes she smelled fish.

I said to the girl "It is me. I had fucking fish for lunch." Then I walked away.

My manager came up to me at the end of the day and said I need to meet with him and HR tomorrow morning at 8 am.

I feel sick to my stomach. Not because of the haddock because of this fucking bullshit.

background to the video: Burt Reynolds / Nickelodeon host Marc Summers

For those who don't know, here's some background to the video...

Burt Reynolds had recently divorced his wife, Loni Anderson.

Here they are together:
https://peopledotcom.files.wordpress.com/2018/09/burt-reynolds-13.jpg

Jay Leno had been making fun of Burt's divorce during his Tonight Show monologue. I think at one point Burt didn't want to appear on the tonight show because of Leno's jokes. Well eventually Burt came around and made an appearance, but not before Leno made another joke about Burt. However, when Burt came on he was cool and acted normal. 

Then Marc Summers comes on. Now Burt is already pissed off, so every little thing was ticking him off even when he felt that Marc had his back turned to him. Usually the guest sits facing front to the audience, but Marc had his back turned to Burt. Maybe it was intentional, maybe it wasn't. Burt called Marc out and Marc came back with a joke about Burt's marriage. That really, really, really ticked of Burt.

What was up with CJayC?

  3. What was up with CJayC?
MeIon Bread 1 day ago#1
I mean, he created a website that I've enjoyed a lot for over 17 years now, but as a person, they was something kinda...I dunno. Strange about him. A lot of it centred about his paranoia / obsession with privacy.

- Banned anyone from the boards almost instantly if they called his house
- Didn't seem to disclose that many details about himself
- Seemed caged in general about his life
- Pretty much only ever spoke directly to the world on one occasion (that I know of), during that radio show
- Seemed to hate running the site, even though he chose to do it
- Sold the site for (relative) peanuts, like he thought that people were "closing in on him", or something
- Pretty much disappeared from public life after selling the site, as if people give a shit about who he was, or what he did 

Why was he so secretive? It's like he had a persecution complex, or paranoid delusions about how interested people were in him.

What do you think of all this? How do you interpret what we know about him?

But remember how he got less than 2 million dollars for it, even though it was basically an extremely popular website at the time? Wasn't it in the Alexa 500?

Some people just value their privacy. Sadly some think that's strange in a world where people are happy to post intimate details of their day to day life on social media.

Not everyone wants to be famous. I can't imagine he would of believed how big the website would get when he created it. Getting over a million dollars is enough to live comfortably on investments for the rest of your life.

His privacy skills are basically unparalleled. Literally decades later we still know almost nothing about him. One of the biggest game sites on the Internet, full of trolls and revengebeards who have been burned numerous times by site staff, but still nothing.

yeah this guy's lack of self-awareness is mind-boggling

every point made in the OP is either made up, senseless or meaningless

anyone with an ounce of common sense can understand why somoene in his position might want to guard their privacy.

there was nothing strange about CJayC. this topic creator, on the other hand..

It is weird, given the apparent concern with privacy, that he was willing to meet with Gavi. I wouldn't come within a mile of that guy if I could help it.

Gavi contacted him to apologize for his past behavior in order to end the KoS iirc, but I don't believe they've met.

What's this about Gavi? I find it hard to believe that CJayC met with anyone on this site, except some of the people who run the site.

I believe it was described on WikiFAQs when that was still around. Having some trouble finding it now, though.

Also PotD did the same with their own mod. 

I forget her name but she was Scottish. Ail something or something Ail. All I remember was the Ail part

She was like 30 or 40 in a time when most of PotD was teens or early 20s and the younger posters drove her into a mental breakdown and she vanished
