PokeTracker Has Lost Its Quarry

I wanted to point out that I have played Pokemon Go without resorting to a tracking app or spending any in-game money. Now before you think I’m all high and mighty I also want to point out that I had 0 problems, nada, with anyone who used outside apps or spent money in-game. My problem is listening to people say that Pokemon Go is now unplayable without an outside tracking app. 

Yes the in-game tracker is still broken, but that doesn’t mean you don’t stop playing? What happened to the just getting out to the parks and hitting up Pokestops and taking over gyms? The problem was PokeVision told you exactly where the Pokemon was, and how long it would be there. All you had to do was jump into your car and drive to the location, open the app, catch the Pokemon and go home.

I saw a Growlithe on my tracker yesterday, I drove (I was taking over gyms) in circles looking for him. I didn’t catch him, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to stop playing.

Pokémon Go & Dog Walking

Took the girls with me to go Pokestop visiting. The park next to my house has 4 Pokestops and a gym. I wore them out pretty good. On the way back my Shih Tzu, Auriel, kept trying to lay down.

We did some photos at the park. Kept trying to take a selfie with the dogs but I couldn’t convince them both to look forward with my back to them.
Got the gym at the park to Level 5 and dropped in my Snorlax.
The Snorlax is currently my best Pokémon. I’m currently starved for stardust to level up the others. I hatched him from a 10 km egg. I hatched an Evee from a 10km egg and there was much nerd raging. 
The real funny thing is I’m wishing I had a higher energy dog so I that I could take longer walks or even take the dog with me to ride my bike. I wouldn’t trade my girls for anything though. Maggie (beagle) after over 4 months of living with us has finally seemed to finally become one of the family. She brought me a tennis ball two days ago wanting to play. This was a first. I still want to do scent training with her.

 

Sooooo Much to Talk About

Let’s talk Pokemon Go! Okay, I’ve only been really able to catch at work and at home. I rode my bike today to farm pokestops at the nearby park while I tried to figure out how the gym worked nearest me. It is currently owned by Team Instinct. So tomorrow I plan to go out and go visit pokestops and gyms and hopefully find some more pokemon. I’m more into collecting them rather than fighting because I still can’t figure out how the battles work. I suck so bad at it. Also I feel bad because I’m on a Team Mystic – STL group and they all have so much better pokemon than I do. I honestly don’t need to be the best but I do want to be able to compete with my peers. Pokemon Go only has been out for 3 days, but I will admit that it has gotten me to move more than anything else. My feet hurt from Pokemon Go! My best pokemon right now is a Pinsir I caught at work.

Next item up for discussion: Conspiracy Theorist Guy (CTG) just told me today that the TV show the Odd Couple is based on his ex-girlfriend’s life. (The movie Life of Brian is supposed to be based off his life.) He tells me that his ex-girlfriend (8 years ago btw) married her ex’s brother. He discovered this because it was mentioned in an Odd Couple episode. According to him, Teri Hatcher is a cousin of his and plays his ex-girlfriend’s role in the Odd Couple. Now I’ve never seen the Odd Couple and I doubt much of what he says is related to him. I still enjoy him and enjoy listening to him. However when I discuss conspiracy theories, all his boil down to one ultimate end: To make Bush (George H.) president.

Okay on the theme of co-workers… I’ve been working drive-thru more often and the last two times I’ve worked drive-thru I’ve had to work with two different people. Now I’m 35 years old, I don’t quite take to things as efficiently as I did when I was 16 (last time I worked a drive-thru) so I’m having trouble multi-tasking and remembering everything. So the last two nights I’ve worked the back cashier spot, which means I take the money and hand out the drinks. Another girl takes the orders and makes the drinks. The girl I worked with last night did nothing except that. Well until she got mad at me for helping other positions. This is all she did, she’d take orders, make the drinks and when there were no more orders to take or drinks to make she’d just lean against the ice cream machine with her hands in her pockets. It didn’t matter how busy everyone else was, she just stood there. So I’m doing the back cash thing and I’m waiting on my food to be made. I look over at the inside counter and their food is up, so I go and assemble a counter order. Well apparently the drive thru food got made eventually and she got mad and suddenly did my job. It IS so HARD to just stand there and do nothing.

So TONIGHT I’m with a different girl but she got all butt-hurt over Pokemon Go. She doesn’t have or want Pokemon Go, and she complains that those of us who have it are on our phones all the time. So I looked up at her and asked: What is the difference of us being on Pokemon Go while you’re on Facebook?
And after that she spent the rest of the night not talking and she took it out on the guests (also the girl last night wasn’t too friendly either) and wouldn’t even greet them. She’d just say: I can take your order.
What really bothered me was she just kept saying that if she heard anymore Pokemon Go talk she was just gonna leave. I so badly wanted to say: Bye! Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.
If it bothers you that much CHANGE THE FUCKING SUBJECT!
