    Now if everyone could please "Sig" something along the lines of "Gosh 2D8HP, you are so very correct (and also good looking)", I think that would be good progress.

    Today I was reminded of something that's baffled me for a long while:

    Engineers who cannot calculate volume for their own designs.

    Like, these people. Are sitting on a computer. Drawing blueprints with computer aided design. Noting down all the necessary measurements. With calculator program one click away.

    And yet, almost every damn time, the volume given for concrete required is off by margin of nearly 200 litres. And I have to calculate it again myself.

    Like, we're talking about walls here. 99% of the time they're rectangles. A third grader knows how to calculate this stuff. Yet somehow professional engineers don't manage.

    How is this possible? How? Hoooooow?

    I assume you're in construction?

    Well, as an engineer, I'll give a possible answer, but not an excuse. It's likely that they are taking the output of the CAD program at its word, and the program is doing something wrong. Perhaps it thinks there's a void where there isn't one. Alternately, the volume they're giving you is the volume of the wall, subtracting the space the rebar takes up. Who knows.

    But like I said, not really an excuse. (Unless it's wall minus rebar, in which case it's probably on purpose, just isn't what you're looking for I guess?)

    Personally, all my volumes are very, very approximate, as I don't do walls and easy rectangles. I do roads and grading. So we estimate volumes either by comparing two surfaces to each other, or by taking cross sections every 10-25m and multiplying by the distances between them. Either way, once you're in the field, and depending on how well things compact, it ends up being +/- 10-20% from the estimated quantity.

    If it's always the same people they could just be incompetent too. Alternatively you could ask them why and maybe there'd be an explanation. I know I won't put up with someone just saying they made the same mistake on multiple occasions without some justification.

    The trope of sassy bartenders (in fiction - I don't know how common this is in real life). For reference, this is the sort of thing I'm talking about:

    "Excuse me, this isn't a martini."
    "It is in Kentucky."
    "Fair enough."

    And this sort of scene is so common in fiction that it seems to be playing with a real-life stereotype, but how would such a stereotype have gotten started in the first place? Wouldn't a bartender end up unemployed if they actually acted like that? (Assuming that, as a sort of wait staff, their job is to dispense what people actually order . . . right?)

    I don't understand why I'm even thinking about this, but I thought the answer might be interesting.

    If it's more suited for the Media Discussions subforum, do please let me know.

    Many bars' income is significantly based on regulars, who come in every day, and who are served precisely what they want. Newcomers asking for "weird" stuff may get a bit of lip, especially if that will please the regulars. It endangers the generation of new regulars, of course, but if you are the kind of person who wants a martini from a bar that only serves whiskey, then you aren't regular material for the bar. They lose little, they stand to gain further appreciation from their actual patrons.

    In films, the main character is usually on the move, and having this kind of scenario, such as in Kingsman 2, which you quoted, is a way to show how far the character is outside their comfort zone. The flip side is the character that goes into a bar, asks for "my usual" and gets served. In either case, it is also a good moment for a bit of levity, which is always appreciated.

    The midpoint between the two is usually NOT shown in films, because it adds nothing to the scene. Instead, the film may cut to the character already with food in front of them (or if an interruption is needed for the scene, starting without food, and getting it delivered, usually to show some kind of characterisation based on what each person ordered).

    So, in short, "in films, interacting with the bartender has to serve the story".

    Because people miss the person. They won't see that person again for some time. Grieving is a personal process, and should be focused on helping the bereaved process it. So I'd mention to loved ones what you'd prefer for yourself, but keep in mind they might not do it because of what they need.

    I believe it was custom in New Orleans to do a bit of both? The sad bit first, then a party to celebrate the person's life? I could be wrong.

    And I have to confess, I sometimes watch reality TV shows. It's a guilty pleasure to watch some of the food networks ones, but in my defense, sometimes things catch on fire and there's genuine cooking tips in there. I just bear it with a grain of salt and remember that half of what they say probably isn't true or is taken out of context. The drama stuff, not the cooking stuff.

    Ever so often, something I read, or a song I hear, or a movie I watch will get my eyes misty, but all the actual real-life-in-front-of-me human misery just evokes simmering annoyance and fatigue.
    I too don't think you should worry, because I think you hit the problem on the head: Fatigue. People in stressful situations around others can become emotionally fatigued or drained. I've heard this issue happening a lot in the medical field for instance (the ol' story of EMTs having the darkest sense of humor, for instance).

    If the woman is at the police station, she might not have wanted a stranger to come up and offer empty condolences or butt into a very important matter, if it helps. Sometimes all you can do is help and make sure the damn water works so the people who can help can get to work faster.

    If the matter continues, consider just taking a day to relax and focus on what is your concern: Your kids! Make sure you do the best you can for them. Maybe take a day to do something fun with them to have a mini-vacation.

    Since she was leaving the station I think condolences and reassurances were precisely what she wanted, not the "We have noted this" she likely got. My co-worker was able to tell her "Don't worry they'll find her", but all I could think of (which I didn't voice) was "Hopefully not at the autopsy room" (Pretty much all of us who have worked in the autopsy room learn not to answer when asked "How was your day? ")

    Yeah, this seems about normal.

    My dad is a retired firefighter. We were talking recently about all the issues that job involved, the potential for PTSD, etc, and he mentioned just how dark the humour gets around the fire hall. It's a coping mechanism. You have to be able to distance yourself from the situation emotionally, or you can't do the job.

    And, just like you did, you have to remember not to make those jokes in front of the people whose house burned down/daughter went missing. So yeah, seems pretty normal.

    Some people, like your coworker, are better at turning the empathy back on, or at least faking it. And sometimes you go through rough periods where it doesn't come as easy.

    But I assume if it was someone you knew, such as your child or a friend, you would have been able to be more supportive. Especially if you weren't at your job at the time.

    Some people are different, and in case I think I was wrong. But I think I agree with ve4grm, that the coworker might be better with compartmentalizing or faking empathy. If you don't think you are up to faking it...Don't bother. If that's what gets you through the day, I'm really not going to complain. You have a job to do and the cops probably aren't going to solve anything if they have to jog to the 7-11 to use the bathroom.

    Maybe ask your coworker how he deals with it, even if you make your inquiry a little vague. Even just having someone to talk to who goes through the same thing might help.

    Or start a DnD group? Maybe some time bashing trolls upside the head will help.

    A thing that really made me think when I noticed is: why does the poop emoji have a face? Sure, to convey a mood, but why? Or rather, what mood that isn't adequately expressed by just the poop?

    I'm actually quite happy it's a smiling face, because otherwise you'd have sad poop, or merely indifferent poop, which just deepens the mystery.

    Because the artist wasn't paid enough and trying to make a poop emoji that is obviously lighthearted is quite difficult.

    But I think a angry poop emoji would be a great way to communicate certain types of illnesses.

    I don't quite get the point of slippers. I just don't want people tracking dirt all around my house. Plus, just for myself, it's way more comfortable.

    If your feet get cold, you have circulation issues or uneven floors? Or pets inclined to sit on your feet? I think it's hard to explain what feels comfortable, versus what isn't.

    However, since I don't wear slippers, I am free not to offer any to my guests. HAH. Through do people not go barefoot/have socks on? If I know someone well enough to be in their house, I probably don't care that I am showing my mismatching socks to them.

    Socks.Socks are great. Feet don't get cold, feet still feel comfy without the harsh restrictions of shoes or slippers, socks can be tin in summer and thick in winter. I have Star Wars socks, plain white sicks, nice thin socks, super fat winter socks, super nice 100% cashmere socks ($2 at Bargain Hunt. Seriously, I will never find a deal that good ever again. They had no idea what they had. It's like wrapping my feet in a cloud).

    Something I don't understand? The gays.

    Why would a guy prefer to love, sleep and be with another guy than with a girl?

    They are guys! They should know better.

    Most guys are selfish and disgusting huge jerks.

    How can a guy find that more attractive than a girl?

    Fun fact: the true reason for the Bronze Age collapse was that they had to use all the available tin to make their socks, leaving none for making the actual bronze.

    The advantage is that aliens won't control your feet. Also, you can preserve them in the fridge.

    They are guys! They should know better.

    Most guys are selfish and disgusting huge jerks.

    How can a guy find that more attractive than a girl?
    This is also why all women are lesbians, I suppose?

    There are many fine, cute, smart, adorable, sexy, (and my favorite) geeky guys. It's true that most of them just aren't interested in guys like you, going off your self description.

    I desperately hope this isn't a serious question, because if so... yeesh. There is something deeply wrong with your view on people.

    When I was a new apprentice plumber I actually heard one of the Journeyman ask this out-loud to the whole crew, supplemented by "I mean women are just amazing, I mean wow...". No one answered him and he was basically considered a nut-job, with the other the Journeyman laughing at him (this was in Silicon Valley during the last year of the Clinton administration when the main qualification for staying employed was the ability to fog a mirror), he lived in a VW Microbus and would tell the crew things like "My hobby is to go to restaurants and leave really big tips, waitresses love me!", and I was warned by another apprentice , "He called me over to his van to tell me something, and the dude started changing his clothes in front of me!, So if he calls you over stay out of the van!".
