Stuck late at work again, because I was left with a 30-minute task 10 minutes before my shift ended, because anyone who could have done it earlier or even helped me do it then was sent home early. Also got yelled at twice today by customers who found things priced incorrectly because of course it's MY FAULT that they're like that despite both items being priced by those bitch sisters.

Almost died on the way home because my mom paid zero attention to the oncoming lane when making a left onto the highway. Probably would have if the other driver hadn't been paying far more attention.

I have a one-mile drive (using a no-pedestrian expressway bridge over the river, any other route is ~20 miles) to and from work. The other day I witnessed two near accidents caused by impatience (one guy got tired of the traffic and made a sudden turn into the right lane, directly in front of another vehicle, another was annoyed I didn't slam on the gas the femtosecond the light turned green and whipped around me into cross-traffic that was still in the intersection), at least one of which would have been fatal if the non-fault driver hadn't been paying attention.

Arenít there tests before driving? People should know how not to nearly kill people while on the road

All the tests do is show that you know the rules of the road (to a certain degree) and have the physical capability to move the car the way you're supposed to. It doesn't do anything to filter out entitlement or bad attitude.

I think people overrate how good tests are at evaluating something

The only thing a test does is show how good you are at that test at that moment.
If you suddenly submitted everyone to a test they had succeeded at, a good number of people would fail, because they forgot how to be good at that test.

Not the only thing.

Largely it's a test of memory. I found that GCSE and A-Level tests focused on cramming information in but not cultivating understanding. It really hurt my studies.

It's just like
"I'm sorry I don't have perfect recall over every single thing I've learned since the day I was born JANET!"

I don't know who Janet is, it just seemed like the appropriate thing to put at the end of that

Iím now curious why you chose to put a name at the end also why Janet? Why not another name? Why not a number? A letter? A sound? I donít know where I was going with this sentence question.

Guys he just attacked Janet.

Let us hope neither she nor Owlga hear of this despicable calumny.

We ascribe to utilitarianism here. The greatest happiness for the greatest number. We need no hedonistic calculus, only the non-arbitrary judgement of Janet. It is she who gives happiness a home, and she who can take it away.

We will suffer no attack on the happy-master. Our morality does not allow it.

I only vaguely recall that incident. I recall that... someone got offended by something? Tbh IIRC the whole thing seemed silly to me but I wasnt directly involved and thus I didn't really give a flying duck about it
