Blind Item #12

That celebrity/business person that Mr. Hedge likes to rightfully go after on a regular basis proved once again what a petty tool he can be. Apparently he felt that his engineers were having too many coffee breaks so he had all coffee machines removed. Meanwhile, our a-hole would invite the engineers to his office for meetings and his assistant would serve coffee for one in bone china to the a-hole. He would knowingly sip it in front of them just to f**k with them.

Elon fucking Musk. Next he's going to fuck Grimey in front of his workers while torturing their children.

@sandybrook LOL: " 3/5 stars. Pros: Free cereal. Medical, dental, coffee."

Lonely Bastard said...

I gotta be honest, I think a I would do something like that too. Keep the peons in their place and all that.

Brayson87 said...

Hey as long as dude is digging tunnels he gets a pass. I don't need a solar-powered self-driving rocket to Mars to know the planet's f*cked, but better subways and less street traffic would make life easier.

filmfanb said...

Ah, his developed into a bonafide Bond villain is coming along nicely.

no name said...

As an Engineer I can tell you coffee is our life line.

Unknown said...

He may have taken away the coffee machines but he doesn't come off as being sophisticated enough to think to maliciously drink coffee in front of people.

Sal T said...

Bet he drinks that mega expensive coffee that’s made from cat poop, all while cackling demonically and sending yet more pictures of his musky D to Amber Heard.

Jane said...

Weird that only happened at Tesla. I have several friends who work/worked at SpaceX and have for years. They haven't been mistreated by Musk. They think highly of him. In the first five years of business, Musk would have lunch catered in, they had anything they wanted. Once the company grew and hundreds of employees became thousands, that stopped.

plot said...

Sounds obtuse rather than malicious.

What is with this new GF named Grimes, of all things? She looks greasy, and a real step down from Amber, who ain't exactly princess material herself.

J said...

All paid for with swindled taxpayer money.

Unknown said...

@plot the only thing that makes Musk the upgrade is his bank account. Not exactly the barometer. Take away the money and they're who he'd choose.

Jesse Rice said...

who is the celebrity?

Thonker said...

Grimes better get out while she can whether elon gets her nerdy puns or not...

plot said...

@Unknown

Ain't that the truth. Musk gets facials and manicures so he can pose for the public. That's enough to turn me completely off. Don't get the attraction.

Kevin Connolly said...

As a computer engineer I find it unbelievable that any boss/manager of any sort could get away with taking away coffee. It's literally in every workspace in the world.

Rafael said...

The big ass retard Trump.

"the beatings will continue until morale improves"

Brayson87 said...

Let me at em Elon, once we have a friendly doctor pump adderall and acid microdoses into the water coolers we'll have those engineers zipping along!

Ervin Thompson said...

Why do I feel like he's falling from grace? Tell us the reason why? It's so obvious he pissed someone/bodies off.

Nature Girl said...

i'd flip out...take away my coffee and i can't function..then drink some in front of the employees..what a douche bag as my kids would say.

Natalie Fike said...

I hear space x sucks to work at and you are just a number. (one now works at my company) Employees dropping like flys.

J F said...

They'll have the last laugh... executives and engineers are leaving in droves from his ponzi companies.... I cant wait til this man-child has a complete public mental meltdown. Should be EPIC!

Unknown said...

@Ervin Thomson, it seems isn't a fall from grace. It's a crack in a facade.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Space X is a fraud. Tesla is a front. "Elon Musk" is an actor.

If you REALLY wanted to change the world, you'd make the VW bug of electric vehicles, not some $50K+ elitist sports car.

KGB said...

You know, they could subvert this nefarious plot of Musk's by bringing in their own coffee. It sounds crazy but it just might work. If only there was a place that would sell them a pre-brewed cup on their way to work...

LyleAlzedo said...

I'm brokenhearted about these stories since I own a Tesla, a BoringCo hat and a blowtorch. I'm thinking about auctioning off all three.

J F said...

Ppl think he is some genius. He didn't invent or build the boring machine. These things have been around for half a century. As a matter of fact he bought his used up in San Francisco where it's used for sewer projects. Hope you aren't too impatient to wait out his illusions as it only bores @ 3" per hour lol

Wonder which will be done 1st... his Mars colony or his planned tubes running throughout LA? LMFAO

J F said...

Boy-Wonder's genius is from an old copy from the 70's of a Popular Mechanics magazine he found in a bathhouse... he's just working his way through the pages. I think he's almost to the x-ray vision glasses in the ads at the end.

Thank God he didn't stumble across the one that had the elevator to space idea....

J F said...

Ah, I see you went full retard in the worship of the man-child.

Btw, I think he cut out the coffee because he's flat ass broke and cant afford to both build $80k toaster ovens with wheels (at a $48k loss per vehicle) AND provide free coffee... one of them had to go

plot said...

@ J F

Ding!Ding!Ding We have a winner.

It sounds like cost cutting measures to me, too.

mrkwong said...

The thing to remember is that SpaceX is his baby, the only one of his current operations he actually started from bare metal. He obsesses over the 'founder' title, but this is the only one he actually started, the one where he brought in his best buds from earlier days at Zip2 and to some extent from PayPal.

All the rest are stepchildren, he bought them or bought into them, usually when they were about to fail.

mrkwong said...

Oh, forgot Boring

Poor Mick said...

And this is all without anyone mentioning that his world-changing car that normal people still can't afford needs half a fucking football to brake from 60 to 0.

The man is a fucking clown and the growing revulsion is sweet. It's all grift and public ego masturbation, including if not especially SpaceX. The sooner we cut off government handouts for the middle-aged boy wonder of Rhodesia, the better.

mrkwong said...

Nah, he's maybe too full of himself these days but he's no clown, in my experience that's about the last thing I'd say about him.

Dynamically the Tesla cars are very good hardware, the engineering is first-rate. And Tesla as a company is reaping no more public benefits than any other EV maker; it's a level playing field and they've played well, just that all the points come off the taxpayer.

Where they fell down is in failing to understand (or being unwilling to accept) just how much work it is to build a quarter-million or more of a complex consumer product. And Elon's not good at listening to advice once he's made up his mind. They've now gone whole-hog down a high-cost way of meeting their schedule but any shot of profitability with the Model 3 is gone for the medium-term at least.

Dumblesnore said...

I bring my own coffee. No one can fuck with my coffee intake or quality of coffee but me.

Weekittylass said...

Elon's the biggest welfare queen on the planet.

Lunchpaillefty said...

That’s why you know this story is horseshit.

Bubbles said...

Well unless he took away all the Starbucks and other outside coffee shops, they should've been sipping their coffee in those office meetings. He didn't have them chained to their desks did he?

Hortensia said...

+1 Rafael. You got it right!
The big assesd, gigantic gut trump.

Sal Salington said...

Yeah, this 100% didn't happen. Tesla engineers could walk out the door and get a job paying more money before they made it out of the parking lot.

Babsbunny said...

Taking the GlenGarry/GlenRoss approach? Coffee is for closers????/

J F said...

Yep, but with the Boring Co... he started it technically, but just bought some old used sewer industry machinery, slapped new paint on it and spun his dream of zipping cars around LA in a 14' wide tube on a track/sled system. Only problem is, it's designed to carry the cars but not engineered to accommodate people (LMFAO once again) and only had 6 full-time employees as of 4th quarter '17... tell me again how Amazing this Co is???

J F said...

... we can get your car from Santa Monica to Pasadena in 8 min... but your gonna need to catch an UBER and sit in traffic cuz it's not safe for humans in the tunnels. Oh, by the way... when you pick up the car we'll need you to pay the $30/hr parking fee @ the lot. We estimate the car will arrive 2 1/2 hrs b4 you... so that will be $50 for the tube, $90 for the parking, and $45 for the UBER...

boredatwork boredatwork said...

sounds rather counter productive

J F said...

.... oh, And Thank You for your unwavering support of Me, my WHORES, my Cocaine habit and all Rainforest and starving children all across the world!!!

...Would you like to buy a Boring Co hat, while you wait for the valet ($25 + tip), for just $39.95 in the Musk gift shop and Museum?

THANK YOU FOR TRAVELING ON MUSK TROLLWAYS... Have a Great Day!

J F said...

He's a visionary and a damn good salesman... but where he went wrong is he didn't do the actual math before he started his projects... others have and that's why in a capitalist free market where efficiencies and practicality have to be weighed against the dreams cooked up in a child's head. EVERYTHING HE HAS EVER PROPOSED has already been discussed for decades in Popular Science/Popular Mechanics... however others realized not every dream is economical... Elons only genius is in selling losing propositions to politicians that bill the taxpayers for their folly

J F said...

Yes.... and they have been in droves

ForeverFilthyBrain said...

"Rightfully" lol

If you put a Mr Hedge blind into google translate it translates it to:
"I'm petty & hate people more successful than me"

F**k off, these blinds are boring. I'll write your next one for you: "Elon Musk sucks". You're welcome.

As an aside, I literally had no opinion of Musk before reading these blinds, now I kinda like him because of how irate he's made Hedge dude.

You only get haters if you're doing something right. I don't hate Mr Hedge :)

Violet said...

Coffee breaks my left glute. Real geeks swill giant containers of coffee and other nourishment at their desks while they work. If some spills on the keyboard, it will keep it happy and fed.

longtimereader said...

Anyone else following the utterly hilarious twitter meltdown musk is having right now? he got into a scrap with one of grimes fave lefty posters and and his ego can't take being owned that hard.

Jay said...

Obviously this person - “Mr Hedge” is a tesla stock short seller that is trying to drum up negative news to lower the stock value.

SpaceX has an ESpresso Bar - not coffee machines. Fairly certain Tesla is the same.

Musk is a genius. Millions of haters and dumb commenters here. This guy will have the biggest impact on the way we live our lives on a daily basis for energy and transportation.

J F said...

And Jim Jones followers thought he was a genius too... right up to the point they drank the koolaid.

Glad to see your a fanboy of his... he'll need as many as he can gather when he goes Full Delorean
