This is a question Well, that taught 'em

Sammi Evil Nice writes "I shared with two students, and it was always the same; whenever it was near to paytime, my milk *and only this* would disappear.

One of them, John, was a lovely bloke but allergic to nuts. John makes tea. Soon after, John starts swelling up.

ME: Runs, administers epi-pen. "You're going into anaphalactic shock."
HIM: "How do you know?"
ME: "I put almond oil in my milk."

What have you done to teach somebody a lesson?

i used to work for this skanky old bag named sheila in a wholesale nursery.

we would make thousands and thousands of cuttings and pot them up into small pots at first, then transfer them into gradually larger pots. ..it was truly monotinous work, and took hours and hours to complete even 1 task. this was not helped along by the fact that sheila was a complete bitch. other things we had to do included taking weeds out of acres and acres of tiny pots, carrying not-so-tiny pots around, and my favourite: making sure that 10's of thousands of pots were perfectly in line so that each plant got exactly the same amount of water and nutrient.

one of the worst things was making the potting mix for the cuttings to go into. she insisted that it was mixed absolutely perfectly. pete moss, perlite, vermaculite, osmocote...all of it had to be mixed exactly right and then wet with exactly the right amount of water.

this was always my job, and i always had to make SHITLOADS...enough to re-pot every plant in the nursery as they moved up to the next sized pot.

well, after 2 years i had really done what i would call 'fucking hard work' ..and one day i had just potted about 5000 bouganvillea plants, only to be inturrupted 30 minutes before knock off. apparently they were in the wrong pots or something, and i was to re-pot as many as i could that day, finish off the rest the next day, and then make a new batch of potting mix in the afternoon.

i got through the re-potting, handed in my resignation and said i would stay for the afternoon and make a new batch of potting mix before leaving.

pete moss - check

vermaculite - check

perlite - check

osmocote - check

2 bottles of concentrated weed killer - check.

i heard she went bankrupt a year or two later.
