@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

That sure was an episode that spent all its time building up a fascinating conflict and had to wrap up too quickly. It would have been interesting if becoming a Washout worked out for Scootaloo.

 

But I liked it.

I agree it would've worked better if they'd let Dust do a face turn, or at least a partial face turn.  I understand the desire to break the "every villain gets redemption" trope that MLP tends towards (although there have always been notable exceptions, like Chrysalis), but they seem to be leaning too hard the other way this season.  Like, Flim and Flam actually got a bit of a redemption in their first Las Pegasus story (using their scamming powers for good), but rather than (ahem) leveraging that into more character growth, the brothers backslid into the "lazy con artist" role.  And Lightning Dust was never really a villain, just reckless.

Thank you Daily Motion!

Well, let's see, Rainbow Dash is jealous...nothing new. At least she admits eavesdropping is wrong

Ho...ly...hug! Guys? Lighting Dust. That...that's Lightning Dust. You guys seeing what I'm seeing? Cause I'm totally seeing Lightning Dust. HOLY hug THEY BROUGHT BACK LIGHTNING DUST!

And they seem to have brought her back as an antagonist. No prob. I'm sure she'll be redeemed by the end of the episode...not that she's even done anything wrong yet.

Hey, she seems to be taking things well. And like she said, the only ones in danger during the shows are the performers. So I'm guessing this is going to be an episode where Dust is in the right and Dash is being the jerk? I van handle that as long as the writers remember who's who.

Or friendly rivalry? What is going on with this episode? Okay, enough play by playing. I need to just watch this.

Ugh! So good right up until the end where they just had to make Lightning Dust go one step too far just so she could be the "bad guy!" I mean, she was doing nothing wrong until she strapped Scoots into an untested stunt and pushed the button right when she was having second thoughts.

She had a show that everybody loved, where only the performers were at risk and ponies who had their dreams crushed by the Wonderbolts had a second chance to do something they loved.

Of all the "villains" to keep as villains, why her? Redeem Discord but hug that bitch Lightning Dust? It's not like she's even evil. She's reckless and dangerous...but she saw that and so she made her own stunt show so thar reckless and dangerous would be a good thing and nobody but the performers are in danger. But hug good intentions. We got two minutes ledt. Better find a way to make her irredeemable. What the hug??.

Yeah, that bothers a lot of people, myself included.

 

It feels like the show runners went: "Hey too many people are complaining about how often we redeem characters on the show. Maybe we should stop?" Except the issue is the type of characters being redeemed, and Lightning Dust would have made sense.

I can see why they would want to keep Lightning Dust antagonistic to the extent that she is, or feel like they have to. Redemption is sorta not the point. She has a specific wound that isn't going to go away with time or a FRIENDSHIP blast to the face. Even if she lets go getting kicked out of the Wonderbolts Academy, she'll always be kicked out of the Wonderbolts.

 

 

That makes the ending worse though. She makes enough sense as a minor antagonist that it's disappointing that they forced it that hard there. It was unnecessary, and it's jarring that they suddenly dropped all nuance in an episode that is very nicely nuanced right up until that point. What's also jarring is that they wrote an unused tool here. They bothered to establish that the suits are fireproof. They could have used that as a mitigating factor in how much danger Lightning Dust was putting Scootaloo in, but then they forgot to have any mitigating factors and made Lightning Dust just a reckless jerk.

 

It's clearly a case of spending too much time developing the plot and realizing they only had two minutes left.

 

 

What I wish happened is this actually working out for Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash having to figure out how to be okay with it. If this were a season 6 episode that's probably what would have happened. Shame.

This. So much this. This episode was just screaming to have a lesson where someone see's someone they love choosing a path in life that could be dangerous (stuntperson, policeman, armed forces) and wanting to protect the person they love and finally realizing that they have to let the person make their own decisions, no matter how much they want to protect them.

Big opportunity missed.

And as they were starting the stunt show, I was thinking about who Scootaloo is and how she's always been portrayed. She's a risk taker. She loves the adrenaline of doing big stunt type things. This gig would've been right up her ally. She would've taken off really well with this kind of job. I was really hoping this would work out for her and Dash would just have to deal with the above lesson.

The big problem with her being in the stunt show though is. SHE'S A MINOR.

 

Her aunts would have NEVER been okay with this and the fact it got as far as it did is insane.

Those really are some absentee aunties. Yeah, it wasn't bad right up till the end. I do understand that most reckless folk need to end up hurting themselves before they change, but doing what she did to a child is pretty inexcusable.

What's worse is that they did literally no math and have no idea where that flying bomb will end up or land. Could be in orbit, could be in Orbit's kitchen.

Alternate ending: Scootaloo looks at the setup, says something like, "Oh, I did something like this when we were trying for our Stunt Pony Cutie Marks...don't ask, and yes we ended up covered in tree sap.  Looks like it needs (string of technical terms, delivered while rapidly tinkering).  There, ready to go!"

Saw it. I knew it was Dust when they said the flyer was a lady, woohoo!

Darn it, I DID want her redeemed! I'm ok with Rivals Forever but I'd like a friendly rivalry. Then she can come back with a macho Texan stallion partner so Dash has to team up with Applejack to take them down in a contest (but AJ gets a mutual crush and it turns into Romeo and Juliet, hahaha).

Did like it was Scootaloo lost her idol worship cuz, yeah, Dash isn't as cool anymore when you're around her and see all her flaws. Loved that she joined the Washouts but for her SCOOTER skills! Cuz Dash can't help her with that. But maybe Dust and her crew could have.

Admitting that she can't fly... Ow. Like, OW! So, I dunno, is she the wheelchair bound character now like in Garret in Extreme Ghostbusters? If only it was embraced properly by Dust, something Dash couldn't identify with, knowing that Scootaloo can never reach her dream that way.

Geez, so many ways this ep could go. Man. But hope Dust comes back, better. And they reacknowledge Scoots no-fly thing. Hate the dumb fanclub ending btw.

I wouldn't hope for lightning dust to come back.

 

I mean: we still don't know where that rocket WENT. It was unbalanced on one side, so it probably cratered. Where it did so depends entirely on when the duct tape (duct tape?!?! How were they even allowed to own this equipment, let alone use it in a public venue!?!) failed, and the forces created by the scooter, dust herself, the rope and the other rockets.

 

And remember what scoots said: THREE STAGES. She probably cleared saddle-arabia before the fuel ran out, assuming she didn't hit anything, or just go orbital.

 

I hope her fellow washouts are up for a very long flight to find her.
