made to order

anonymous asked:

Do you have any modern au headcanons?

too many to count (that doesn’t mean I won’t try though)

- Heather Chandler is the self-proclaimed social media queen. Duke creates an Instagram and exceeds Chandler’s follower account within days, so Chandler hacks into her account and deletes it because she’s salty af

- kurt and ram run one of those ‘hottest girls @ westerburg [insert like seventeen eggplant/fire/muscle emojis]’ accounts. its super gross and they think its a secret but everyone knows it’s them

- Veronica works at Starbucks. she is constantly disgusted by the amount of weird frappuccinos(??) she has to make for customers. Martha is currently personal offender #1 because she ordered the unicorn frap five times before it went out of season and made sure that she ordered it from Veronica every time

- JD has Pokemon Go and is still very Into It™ even though its not popular anymore. He has a 2000 cp umbreon that he loves very much. Veronica will deny it if you ask her but she also still has the app and has an espeon to match.


My two Blooky preorders are done. If you like one too they’re on sale here for preorder:

Update time!
The new methods are paying out, we got our backlog down to 7 delayed orders and shipped several items on time. This is still a lot, we’re aiming at no delays at all, but it’s definitely a huge step forward from 3 months ago, when we had 20+ late orders.

Other news: we finished prototypes for 2 more versions of Messers, both with M3B blades. The shorter one’s grip will be slightly different in the production pieces following consultation from historian J.G. Elmslie, who advised on details from surviving examples. We’ll open listings for them during this week.

Also, we are working on a large batch of Feders. These won’t be available in a made-to-order fashion as before - the majority goes to South Coast Swords, the surplus will be sold from stock.

Additional info: the short messer on the pics is completely hand forged, and has a really nice distal tapper (9mm under quillons, ~2mm before the false edge, nonlinear taper). It really pump ups the price though so there will be cheaper trainign versions without that extra.

TalesFromThePizzaGuy: Voting with our feet

Pretty sure I’m the only one at my shop that even knows what reddit is but just to be safe All I will say is that it’s a franchise Jimmy John’s in one of the hottest part of the US.

I love my job, it took me less than a month to figure out who the regulars are and often times we already have their food made by the time they order. The bulk of our business comes from the local car dealerships with a good number of orders to residential customers as well. I get stiffed on tips and paid in nothing but change occasionally but most of the regulars are good- I get a lot of them that will drop $10 on a $6 order, a couple of the dealership salesmen will write in a $5 tip in for any order stuff like that. A 4 hour shift can net me about 50 in tips on average and a few days I’ve walked out with closer to 100 in my pocket. The problem with this great gig though is not surprisingly the owners. The staff are great people but they are hobbled from being really amazing by stupid rules from mangalment.

Some of the issues are simple things that make me twitch on a regular basis having come from a state that grades restaurants on health checks instead of just giving a pass or fail. The meat slicer isn’t cleaned between meats at the owner’s direction- they will slice ham, turkey, salami, capicola, and roast beef all in one go without even attempting to wipe it down and I don’t know the last time the blade was taken off and cleaned and sharpened properly, food is simply wrapped in plastic and tossed in the fridge at night instead of tossed out after being out all day. Until I came along nobody even knew how to clean the tea urns so they will spend days or weeks just being emptied at the end of the night, sprayed with water, and put back to await the next batch to be brewed. Our store has a reputation among residential customers for slow deliveries- sometimes as much as 45 minutes from order to delivery on food that takes less than a minute to prepare because they refuse to schedule more than one driver after 4pm resulting in whoever is doing deliveries often going from one end of our 3mi delivery radius to the other in the middle of rush hour traffic only to get back to the store and find orders have been sitting for 30 minutes. Delivery does everything the inshop workers do when they aren’t driving so we all know how to make subs, slice meat and cheese, bag orders, take orders, etc. basically we get paid less than minimum wage to do the same things people making $9/hr do plus run orders.

Our GM asked to be demoted back to being a driver after she fired one guy for stealing and closing the store an hour early and the owners hired him as GM at their other store when he complained to them and told her firing decisions had to be approved by them and any time we request more staff we are simply told they can’t afford it. Which is BS- their other store makes close to 50,000 a month in straight profit but they keep running them like separate places, I discovered that our delivery range is more than double what Corporate set for them when they opened because they felt it was too small and they wouldn’t make money from it, so they broke their corporate contract and pay a 3,000 a month fine to corporate every month to be able to deliver to more people while raising delivery times. And people that have worked for them for years are regularly overlooked for promotions and in the year I’ve been with the place nobody has gotten a raise. They don’t provide any sort of breaks which as a driver I’m fine with but our in shop staff works 40+ hours a week and nowhere in their often 10 hours shifts do they get a break or even the legally required lunch break.

Finally having reached the end of her rope our GM quit- she intended to give her 2 weeks except the owners flipped out the wife broke down in tears and husband was so upset he started screaming and managed to put his hand through a wall so her 2 weeks became a “here’s my keys have a good life”. The next day our other day shift driver quit without notice and went to another store where all she’ll be expected to do is make deliveries and will make $2/hr more. I’m leaving at the end of the month to head back to the midwest with family after more than a year of occasionally working for a month straight without a day off, staying 2-3 hours over my shift to cover other people, and paying out of pocket for basic needs like a new handle for a broom to replace the one our cheapskate owner broke and duct taped back together. I gave notice already but what they don’t know is I’m not the only one leaving that day. The other two inshop managers are quitting as well as the new guy they hired last week. See our old GM is their roommate and her husband is getting rebased and she’s offered to take them with her. The other day driver is retiring now that he had his 65th birthday last week so next month they will be stuck with themselves, 2 part time drivers- one who calls off every other weekend for “school stuff” and the other who has another job and is frequently an hour or more late. So yeah they treated all of us like crap and in response we all decided to vote with our feet and are leaving them with only the unreliable and frequently worthless staff.

Just a dump post showing off what I’ve been working on the last few months! One day maybe I will be able to finish way more projects that I start, but this is looking pretty good to me! :)
