Parents who expect you to hold your kid to a standard they do not enforce on their own.

Seriously. If you are going to point out every time my teenager does something that could be construed as dumb, you better not be blind to the rampant idiocy of your own, and when I call you on it, getting all righteous and calling me a liar when I'm showing you the proof isn't proving anything, except that you too, are a flaming idiot.

Seriously people. They are teenagers. They are going to do dumb things. And if a kid does a dumb thing to them, then in response, they are probably going to do a dumb thing back. Yes. It's petty and Juvenile, but last time I checked, we all had our moments of idiocy as a teenager. You learn from it, and move on.

If this crazy mom calls me at work one more time, I'm going to tell her where to put her opinion.

Pugging Stormstout brewery on my L86 warrior tank. Getting death threats from the healer and then being kicked because his useless dps guildies all died on the first special attack, because they could not click the bubbles.

I just realised heroics are only 30 valour points. Honestly, I'd rather do 6 dailies. Much faster and better for my health.

And people wonder why there is a tank shortage.

First real raid night tonight.

Why a frustration? I think the raid leaders are pushing it too hard and fast, several of the players, including one of the healers, is barely geared from heroics, another mage is quite undergeared, but they are determined to push progression.

Pushing progression is fine, but when you are going faster and harder than your crew is ready for, that's a problem. This group could use at least another week of LFR, Sha, and heroics/dailies to gear up a bit more.

When I'm on my warlock, resto druids always put their Symbiosis on me. I wonder why. I get a 10s CD Rejuv from them, and it makes me feel compelled to keep that HOT on the tank all the time. orz

Indeed.. I stopped doing heroics once I could step into LFR.

Car written off :(
Missus bit sore but fortunately ok.
She innocently drove down to the end of the street, and was turning left into a main road. (Remembering for those American/Canadian/Europeans people her that we drive on the left in Australia) Some doofus turning right comming the other way does so directly infront of a ute/pickup.
Tbone at 60kmh occurs and the momentum pushes both of them into the side of our car.

'A' Pillar bent, Right side of car nicely mashed, rear passenger wheel/axel bent/broken.

Absolutely no reason for this to occur, besides driver distraction/innatention/stupidity.
Weather bright and sunny, vision from the turn lane A+ up the road.
Ellifain @ Khaz'Goroth does not approve of torture, save where there's experience/rep/loot involved.

Not sure if you can tell from that picture, but along with the 5 tentacles and 2 birds... there were 3-4 virmen. Definitely one of the longer farming days I've had.

Not knowing who's playing what now, if they'll want to raid again or if the people who are 'trying' a new off-spec will ever play their old main spec again.

I guess these are the joys of someone in an officer position at the beginning of a new expansion, huh?

Bad LFR night, instant queues for DPS but the groups didn't fill, got started runs already (2/6) all the time, I declined several, entered one, a wipe and group disbanded, kept getting 2/6 runs for 30 mins of tries, then decided to enter, got full group, they started the fight as I zoned, I couldn't do anything but die to Gas cloud, got credit for the kill but no chance of loot so I won't get to roll on Will of Emperor this week again..

The rest of the 5 bosses, also no drops, not even a sigil, used up 3 of 4 coins I had, nothing there, just gold..

Sha of Anger.. no drop, used last coin = gold

I've got 6 slots that are still 463 on my spriest, but after looking at the loot tables, decided that Will, Sha, and Galleon (if he ever spawns on my server, it's been rumored that he hasn't shown at all), are the only bosses currently available that I'll use a roll on. The other bosses are down to 0-1 items that I might be able to use, so the percentage chance of a bonus role being useful is greatlly diminished.

Really want to save up the coins for the next tier of LFR.

True, but I only have 4 currently, so saving some for next week(?) when the next wing of LFR opens is a good thing.

Next wing is open right now.....

You mean the second raid? (not Mogu-shan Vaults), that's maybe a month away..

Yeah Galleon is like 72 hour CD right now.. (at least it what it took on my realm to spawn), begged, tried to pay for a spot and no invite..

Yeah, the next raid..

So yeah, might save up some tokens, and then use them so each week I can reset to 10, ready the next raid to open. With the currently available bosses, the only LFR one I'll roll on will be Will, due to the chance of the weapon.

The last few weeks of trying to organize guild 5-mans/scenarios on our usual raid nights, to try to get us ready to raid, has been like pulling teeth. Heck, even counting trying to do normals to help people level hasn't really helped open up the pool any. We have a few players who seem to have no interest in anything outside a heroic (so they can gear themselves up).

I really hope we actually enter a raid as a group before the first round of nerfs hits. But I am beginning to doubt it will happen. Especially since exactly 1 main healer has been showing up, and that sporadically and one of the others I think wants a tank slot instead (which sucks, because I was asked to MT - but I'd be the only one with a DPS offspec for single-tank fights...).

I've been an officer in this guild since Vanilla. My wife was the original founder and GM.
None of us have yet to get invited to anything beyond LFR and Sha of Anger runs. So yeah.

...Maybe I should just make my own raid, with blackjack and deathknights.

Tried doing just that. Only 7 people showed up, and 1 of them left for another 10-man almost immediately. :(

And now AskMrRobot went full derp on the optimization -- their control/mastery build has me shedding more than 5% of my mastery -- and actually depends on what trinkets I use -- in some cases it has me shedding close to 6.5% of my mastery

MrRobot has been completely derptastic for me for a while now. It keeps telling me to shed all of my Haste for Mastery as well as sitting my comfortably 2% overcapped on hit. Something's obviously funky there.
