Skip the topical and just get the injection, ya wuss.
Just reading that made me wince.
less chance of getting shot over sneakers in canada....
I'm happy with my 9-5:30. There are periods when I have to work late/weekends but they're mostly confined to the winter, so I get to enjoy the nice weather.
Life is too short to work hard, that's why I'm a bureaucrat.
My students' logic exams are looking pretty brutal. It takes longer to grade when they get everything wrong because I need to write what the answers should have been.
Sad event at work today. At about 10am, amid relative silence, our secretary started shrieking and sobbing. All I heard was, "ON THE BOAT? NO! NO!" before we all ran to the front of the office to see what was going on. Her son's mother-in-law was on a cruise and apparently just dropped dead. The woman and our office mgr. were close friends. Couldn't help but feel powerless as she just sat there sobbing. Great coworker too...works hard, very responsive, helped me get settled into the position.
Just made my Monday that much crappier.
That's awful. Sorry to hear that, Conne.
Well...I did not attend my evening class so that I would be able to do an urgent job. I was told to be there at 18:30; I get there, and they are not ready for me...why the fuck was I dispatched to get there at 18:30, when I wouldn't be able to the job done until 23:00 if not later? I missed class and drove 150 miles total for no reason, the job wasn't even urgent. I still get paid, but damn.
Ouch, that's awful
but on a serious note, really sorry to hear that conne, that is tragic.
someone in the internetz should look that dude up and see if he hasn't offed himself after years of being ridiculed.
move out. check in hotel. preferably one with a heated pool.
I gave up on cheap Chinese made can openers and bough a much pricier wmf can opener years ago and its been pretty solid.
things I learned in the "old country"
- how to open a can with a knife. even a dull knife. actually its best to use an old dull knife.
there's another way using the tip of the blade too.
you can actually open a can with a spoon but thats super ghetto.
