I was in a rush to go to my doctor's appointment this morning. Shoved my feet in my shoes and left as quickly as possible. Spent most of the day going about my business at work. Felt something in my shoe around lunch time. Pulled my foot out and see I had smashed a roach on the side of my foot.
Guts all over my sock and the inside of my shoe. Just tiny pieces of roach left. Had to wear the roach shoe/sock the rest of the day.
EWWW!

Getting suprise gifts ..... yes I know it sounds stupid ..... I always had to work hard for everything n never expected anything off anyone. ... now since the shite really nice people are popping up with little things ..... they make me feel ashamed. .. don't know why but it does .....

Had to go to hospital on Wednesday n was chatting wi my consultant about stuff n there was a nurse sat to the side of us .... I get really stressed going to see em n they could tell ..... when I left the nurse who had said very little asked for a cuddle .... you can't understand how much a sincere cuddle helps .....
Anyway this morning a letter came through the door with a card in it.... It took a while to work out where it came from .... It was the nurse .... It had £50 of vouchers in it with a note in it ..... set me off again ..... I can't even thank her as I wouldn't recognise her if she stood in front of me n she added no contact

Ran four cat6 cables for a new install in the data center, reach into my tool bag for some RJ45 connectors so I can terminate the cable and there are none, had a whole bag Tuesday.
Go to storage to grab some, damn someone shut the door. Go down to the electronic key locker and it has a memory error and will not open.

Raised floor data centers, I hate them. Great for cooling but the damn floor tiles we use are 50 lbs each. Just finished installing 240. Not my usual job but the dead line was coming up and we had to get the floor done.

F-ing mosquitos
A few weeks back we had a TON of rain....well, more in the ballpark of a dozen or more inches. Nature being what it is, we're now blessed with more mosquitos than I've seen in my entire life...which includes June canoeing in Boundary Waters/Quetico.

Normally wind and sun are pretty protective from attacks....a week or so ago I was in my mom's garden, and it was actually sunny and windy, and I was still being bitten. My garden is more protected, and whenever I venture out there you can see a cloud of them rise up. Just picking some basil at the edge of the garden gave me a couple dozen new friends.

Worst, the other night I opened the patio door off of our bedroom for air. The screen had been open, so I snapped it shut. Some minutes later I looked at the ceiling above the fan and it was dotted with a couple dozen of them. I started taking them out, one by one, until my wife showed up, and instead of going to bed, spent the next 20 minutes doing search and destroy. We apparently did finish them off, but I swear there were a hundred. Since then, I've noticed that a foray into the back yard might bring in a dozen hitchhikers.

I've been looking forward to Fall, but I'm ready for frost any day now. Not much use for the outdoors (other than riding) anyway....

Gas, Spark, Air, Compression.

Squirt of starting fluid in the intake will tell you whether it is a fuel issue or not.

Pull the plug wire and put a spare plug on and ground it to see if you're getting a nice blue spark. Orange is not acceptable.

Compression test to see if you have compression. Doubt you will get to this point though.

The school district I work for wants to dock us three days pay if we donít take some sort of leave for the three days they closed because of the hurricane.

Any lawyers want to chime in on the legality of that?

I don't work, I don't get paid, that is how it works in the real world of non union workers.

Ahh, so if you work more you get paid more? That does not happen here either, we are salaried workers. And no, teachers are not allowed to have a union in NC.

In the end they decided to scrap their demand...

I was salaried till a few years ago, now salaried plus Overtime
You get a job in the public sector don't expect private company money.
I get no retirement either which you do. Unless your school distinct REALLY sucks

Funny how teachers complain about pay when they know what the pay will be when they went to school for a teaching degree.
Get an IT degree and work all kinds of stupid hours (60-80 a week) and make lots of money if you find the right company

Funny how people think they know everything. I do not have a teaching degree, I work stupid (55+) hours every week and I did not get into teaching for the money (who does). I am not planning on getting a retirement from the state (shows how much you know about teaching in NC), I would be stupid if I did.

Why am I replying to you again???

Well said.
What pisses me off is the ignorance of some adults. Which is why I took a job that addresses this blight on society.

Not lighting one, but had one in his mouth. It did look fresh so he may have lit before he was in my view.

No, it's not the snow. It's the cagers who can't be bothered to clear the snow off their windows, or can't remember to turn on their lights.

Probably not yet, but the cagers that can't be arsed to brush off their headlights just in case they turn them on.

Can't quite get my head around snow yet, but I did see a photo of my BIL in River Falls with big flakes all over him.
