    Sounds like they're getting shafted Kilroy Silk style. Bearing in mind it's the same SNP that enrolled a gynecologist to tackle a pandemic so I really shouldn't be surprised.

    This could well be the straw that breaks the camels back for this lot.

    Shambles.

    Cause every day since Monday, something happened.
    - Mon - dogs almost ran away
    - Tues - Coworker maims himself
    - Wed - I did a dumb thing and pissed my family off

    So I’m scared of what will happen today. Maybe if I just stay in my car all day, it’ll be all right?

    I'm postponing sleep tonight, as I have a slug on my bedroom ceiling.

    Not so much of a not happy and more of a not great post.

    Apparently I woke up today with heat exhaustion, I think I had my covers wrapped around me a little too tight. Was sweating like I had run a marathon and felt like I was going to puke every other breath.

    All good now though, couple of glasses of OJ on ice and some fresh air then I'm ready for the days writing.

    What happens when you play a country song backwards? Your truck starts, your dog comes home, and your wife decides to take you back.

    The wife bought a new fire extinguisher, because I keep forgetting to take the pizza box out of the oven before I pre heat. I told her it would have been cheaper if she’d just quit putting the boxes in the oven. Put the leftover pizza in the fridge, or toss the whole thing, but quit putting the box in the oven.

    PC quit working on me for a few weeks. Turned back to my old Vista that's no longer supported by anything, and then it died. Well, it turns out it was because of a faulty power outlet (surge protectors made no difference), which surprisingly still operates my internet modem pretty well. Dumb slumlord father of mine refuses to do anything about the outlet though, so I moved my newer PC where my recliner is, which is dangerous for my monitor having it sit on a TV tray, but at least it works now, though I don't know how long this'll last.

    Might as well have a laptop at this point...except I went through 3 of them, thus the desktop now.

    Yes, you vomit a six-pack's worth of beer back into the cans, at least in bro country. In classic country it's far more likely to be hard liquor mixed with tears.

    • Went for a bike ride on a bright warm day, decided to circle the lake (28 or so miles). The first part of the ride is along a fairly busy road without a bike lane. Usually I just ride the shoulder and trust in the drivers. This particular day I decided I would ride the sidewalk as far as it went. All went well until I came to a spot where the road and sidewalk crossed a small creek. I decided to stay on the sidewalk, but found myself between a high metal railing on one side and a 6-to-8 inch dropoff to the roadway on the other. I was moving at a pretty good clip but psychologically decided I couldn't stay on that relatively narrow path. I tried to slow down, but I also froze up and lost my balance. I ended up banging along the rail, my hand held out against it until I stopped, and fell over. No serious damage to myself except for a nasty bloody gash on top of my thumb that got red blotches all over my white handlebar tape, and a front brake caliper that wouldn't release. The thumb is healing nicely after the Urgent Care folks glued it together, and the bike shop is truing my front wheel and checking for other damage. Could have been much worse. Only serious damage is to my self-confidence; my younger self would have flown across that walkway unthinkingly and unscathed.

    Interesting how we lose confidence as we grow older when as babies we are the most dependent things. You'd think with all this experience we'd know we can do pretty much anything.

    It was only a matter of time before my skin color would be brought up by a disgruntled guest....:bigmeh:

    Yes, my skin color is the reason why you need to wear your mask. Yes. My skin color is the reason why we limit our onsite time. Yes. My skin color makes it my fault.
    Have a nice day.:wtf:

    Some people (and sadly a lot more than I’m comfortable with) seem to see the pandemic as an opportunity to show their true and nasty face accompanied by a fair amount of stupidity. Please don't let it get to you! :friend:

    That's awful. Sorry that happened to you. I'm so sick of bigot assholes. Not sure where you work, but if it's a restaurant, I would spit in his food (so long as you're not sick) or at least drop it on the floor or put some dirt in it. Yes, make this guy eat dirt.
