  • I need to mail in the picture ID, so I was told my VHIC would work (Vet Health Identification Card). Turns out, the picture and the bar code have nearly worn off, unusable. So, $45 and 2 weeks, minimal, before I can prove I am an American, so I can get a job that I have been offered! F*#! Me! :wtf:

    Gotta love it, nothing like bureaucracy to put your life on hold. I'm sorry man, sounds like you're dealing with a lot of crap right now. This is probably the worst possible time for these kinds of hang-ups.
    Interview went well. Now I am having issues. I need a new Dr. License, $45. Plus I need to get a new SS card! I don't have the Money for the license and SS. card?
    I need a picture ID and to fill out a form and mail it in.
    @Arjai How did the phone interview go?? Just thought I'd pop by and see how you're doing :D :D It's blooming hot over in the UK @ 32C at the moment.. You and your darn air con!! :laugh:
    I am also BROKE, again. I applied for a SNAP card but, it has not arrived, nor have I been contacted about it, yet. I ate the last of my Cereal, a few moments ago. Good news is, I have a phone interview set up for tomorrow morning for a possible Job!! It's a Security Job so, not the best thing but, I need work!
    Well, the apt. repair man came today! I left a message last night, on the bldg office line, about my A/C. He came by this morning and re-wired a piece, and wallah! It works! My thermostat reads 79F, right now. It has been no lower than 84, often 91, since April! I was leery about calling because of not being able to pay rent but, I am grateful I did!
    Well, can't sleep. I'm hungry and have no food in the apartment, except popcorn. I'm also tired. I am nearly broke since I have been unable to get Unemployment, because the company I worked for has denied it. I called a lawyer and will hear back on Monday. I am hoping for my taxes and bail-out money before I lose my apartment!
    He asked about what had happened. 4 days later, I was fired by some dick in HR for THEFT! My DM was nearly in tears. He could not do anything about it. He talked to his Boss, Regional MGR, and he could do nothing either. No good deed goes unpunished, when you are owned by a corp.

    IME, HR is not there to protect YOU, the employee. IF they were, it'd be pretty strange how bad they all seem to be at that...

    As far as I can tell, HR exists to fire people and cover things up. Sometimes both. The reason may not even be what you think it is.

    I'm reminded of a freight manager I worked with getting fired for 'stealing' a pack of gum. We started at 4AM. The registers won't even come up till 8, so sometimes she would grab a snack and have it rung up right before opening. Hell, I would ring it up.

    She explained this to them, and they never even cared about who else was involved or knew, luckily for me. Just goes to show it was only her they wanted.

    Good old fashioned head-hunting managers. God forbid they ever see you as a liability. There's no warnings or three-strikes when you're on their hit list.
    So, after a 92 hour work week, last week, long story, I am back to normal hours. Sort of, no days off. But, I am feeling better for it! Sleep is not over-rated!!

    I am on Salary, so I don't get overtime. If I was hourly, I would have made a $1000 extra, which is why the company doesn't mind working me to death.

    That's very harsh mate... I hope you're on a good day rate!!
    Write up has been sent in, I am tired of this crap. She needs to shape up or be gone, I have 3 new hire's in the coming weeks. I'm sure at least 2 of them would love her hours!
    i wanna play a game but, I'm tired and Hungry. I'm pretty sure that I would suck, since my brain is mush, right now. Worked my tired butt off this morning, alone, since my co-worker did not show up! We talked about this last night! She wanted to switch shifts, so she could attend a meeting that involves her kid. Then promised to show up on time. Numerous text's and phone calls, her phone magically got turned off!
    yesterday went fine build wise. but, I forgot to bring my Win 10 USB! So, we drove back, got back to her place and it was not a boot-able...I effed up. So, I rufus-ed another bootable, last night before bed and went over there tonight and got it up and running. I was like," Watch this!" and shut it off. bam off. Then on again, bam, on. She was crazy happy. :toast:
    Well, The A-10 APU, will live again! The board and CPU I won here in a WCG Challenge, sometime ago, is going across town to my Sister. She has an aging Dell with ISDN cables! Plus a 80GB HD!! I have an SSD and a 1TB hdd and 16GB Ram and a new PSU, that I am gonna go cram into that old Dell Box, today, starting soon! Should be fun, could take all day! Wish me luck!! :lovetpu:
    Sent out all the appropriate text messages, got dressed and now off to the bar, to wish all the lonely drunks well wishes! Plus, I think there might be Holiday dinner, as in the past. We'll see. Take Care everyone, Drive Safe! Fortunately for me, it's a four block walk to the bar. :toast:
    Played Poker w/ my Sister and Brother, at his place. Usually we meet Christmas Eve and make Taco's. Not sure why, probably because it's easy. Last night, my Brother worked late and missed the grocery store for Taco supplies. So we had Chinese. :) Good Times.
    So, tomorrow, Thursday, I will build it up and get it rolling, I have a customer to help in the afternoon, but the rest of the day is devoted to the rig! :rockout:
    Well, long day! AGM flaked on me, second time this week! However I told him he will have to open the store tomorrow, taking my shift, no excuses. He caved, and hopefully comes through. I need a day off!! I got the last piece of the gaming rig today, unfortunately it is in my PO box that closed before I got off work.
    OK, some Good News...
    First, I got a Key-holder today from another store, that closed last week, that I thought was moving to N.Carolina. Apparently, his job offer was not as good as was first offered, much worse. So, yesterday I found out he was still available and he is closing the store, right now!
    Sitting here, waiting for Laundry, wondering if I should order my free Domino's Pizza. I still have until Thursday to get paid and I have nothing but a change jar, maybe 20 bucks, or so....
