I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.

We tried everything but our people kept quitting.

Did you try paying them a decent salary?

We told them they could bring their dogs to the office.

I think they just want to be paid.

We’ll never know why they keep quitting.

Pro tip: if the train station displays show 7 red carriages and 1 green, don’t get in the green one. Use your brain. Why would a train be packed standing except for one completely empty carriage.

@MattHatton hullo Bernie welcome to the Twitter where people try not to be dicks and nazis are banned.

Pokemon are all the same species, they're just dogs but more fucked up

Morning fediverse. Today’s plan is to leave a bit late to try and NOT get to work in the CBD as I get the notification that a parcel is ready to pick up at the post office near home. Just need to pace myself.

I bought ventolin today just in case he does have it and it gets heaps worse. He was audibly wheezing at basketball training today.

I think my kid has asthma. I'm not quite sure what to do about it. Is it just a case of going to the doctor and getting a diagnosis so you can get preventatives?

In nature, “alpha” has similar connotations to what it has in software versions

What has two thumbs and is employee of the month?

Bit of a gap in the narrative for a teen Yoda if you ask me
