Threatened with Violence for Not Saying ‘Thank You’ Loud Enough

what

I hate going out and dealing with people anymore, most everyone I meet is rude and ignorant and just doesn’t care about anyone but themselves and they feel entitled to just whatever and everything.

I went to Dollar Tree the other day to pick up a few things and I use a cane to walk, it sucks, but I have to and this guy held the door open for me and I said thanks, didn’t yell it or anything but apparently it wasn’t loud enough for him.

He followed me into the store and got behind when I was getting a cart and he was mumbling about how I was rude and how I could have at least said thank you to him for holding the door open for me. I did say thanks, guess he didn’t hear me, guess it wasn’t loud enough. Not sure what exactly he wanted from me, to yell it out so everyone heard that he was this wonderful person for holding the door open for me?!

I said ‘excuse me, but I did say thank you, I guess you didn’t hear me say it, and I’m sorry it wasn’t loud enough for you’

He proceeds to threaten to punch me in the head because I was being rude to him and that I should have said it louder so he heard it.

Since when do people have to be praised loudly for doing something decent for a fellow human being?

What kind of society have we become that I’m going to get threatened with physical violence for not saying thank you loud enough?

I hate going out, I hate people more and more everyday…..

3 Reasons Most Players Cheat When Playing World at War

Cheats in video games have been around since video games were developed. Most hardcore and casual gamers are even familiar with traditional cheat codes like “Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Select Start” or also known as the Konami Code. Whether it’s Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo consoles, or even PC, cheat codes are not at all uncommon for video games. These cheats usually provide players invulnerability, unlimited supplies, complete weapons, and even unlock most stages and characters available in the game. Players in offline games have different reasons to use cheat codes, such as to explore the different features of the game, to get past a difficult level, or even just to have fun. But these cheats are sometimes considered to be unethical in massively multiplayer online (MMO) games such as World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Dota 2, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, and Call of Duty: World at War.

Z-X Axis Stabilizer Bar for Monoprice MP Select Mini

So I made something else for my wonderful little printer. Well I made an existing thing better I should say, it’s a remix of another part, but it’s really a new part altogether now. It’s a stabilizer bar for the Z and X axis of the Mp Select Mini but only if you’ve upgraded the bed which I’ve done.

Here’s some more pics of the parts and it installed:

I very much liked the original stabilizer bar design but I didn’t need space for LEDs and I found the bar a bit too thin and flexible for my liking so I decided to beef it up a bit as I didn’t fell it really added any real support.
I thickened up the bar first but then decided to do the same with the small bracket as well to make it match.
It was labeled as an x-axis stabilizer bar but now it’s more for both Z and X but you need to use other parts to be printed and bought, like LM6UU bearings.
Please note this bar can really only be printed on the 4DM Brutus bed and it has to be positioned diagonally on the bed, but it fits fine that way.

You can find it here over on Thingiverse, the STL files to print and more details:  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2507095
