Me leaving work earlier today.... It was too hot (99.5F, you're welcome US-Citizens). It is still too hot.

I have read some r/relationships stuff on reddit recently, because I don't know, the popcorn feeling... but anyway... Everyone is like "Me[21f] and my husband [24m] of two years [...]" and I'm like WHY IS EVERYONE GETTING MARRIED THIS EARLY!?

Or if they're not someone comments "You've been together 4 years and haven't married yet?! GET OUT!"
I'm like: lol.(15 years unmarried in October)

European Mastodon this week is just people reminding each other to drink water

I was reminded that 7 years ago today, my landline kept ringing, but noone answered. At some point I got really fed up and yelled "Hello?!?!?" and then, finally, I could hear some kind of a commotion on the other end. A female voice goes "oh, hello!". I'm still really pissed and hiss "who's this?"
And then: "It's me, your granny!! I was just showing your grandpa how our mobile phone works!"

<3 bless her.

Gotta say, some of my colleagues are almost Mastodon level of nice!
I'm getting dressed this morning, thinking "not sure if I am comfortable in this shirt but hey, it's warm"... During lunch break, multiple people: Laaaura, your shirt is so nice and summery!!

Me, has to cancel a doctor's appointment: *stalls*
Colleague: hey, can you help me make a phone call [in German], I need to make a doctor's appointment.
Me: sure thing *calls multiple doctor's*
Me: wait a minute....

We have one air conditioned room at work and somehow me and my officemate were the only ones to use it today ?! Granted, it's not a great place to work in, but hey. Better than 32Β°C...

When I consider buying something white: 1) but it will end up in this white cycle of hell...
2) no, no... You'll finally have enough whites so that it makes sense to make a white load regularly and you'll finally wear all that other stuff regularly too, win win!

Me and my 10 items of light clothing...
Washing a load of white clothes, wearing lots of whites for 1 week, then they slowly buy steadily recede down to the bottom of the laundry basket until at some point many moons later I rinse and repeat.
