  • I went to get tabs for my bike. The DVS listed the downtown location as the place to get them. Got them there before...Nope, they don't do tabs...Hands me an address, on a small sheet of paper...I said you must get this question a lot, "Yea". You know why? "No." Because this used to be the place to get TABS!!.

    Wanna know why else? "What?" The website for this exact site says you all do TABS!. All those taxes, all the employees in that place. They can't do what every other DVS site does anymore? Why is that? Who do I contact to find out why? Also, why didn't I get a notification, about my Tabs?

    Government, at it's best!! I am absolutely SURE that if I ride my bike I will get a ticket, but, I have to go across town, a 25 minute ride, to get my tabs...Make it make sense?
    I over drew my account this week. Thought I was gonna have to tough it out until tomorrow. I was rationing cigarettes, ate the last of my food, last night. I inadvertently was looking through my old wallet, new wallet just holds the essentials, when I found my Quicksilver card, from Capitol One.

    I went online to check it and...I have an $1800 line of Credit on the card!! :) I had completely forgotten about this account. I rarely use it, anymore, since things were going good, until Tuesday. So glad I found it!! Now I can eat!! Which is what I am going to do, after a shower. Plus, there's a Wild game tonight!

    Win, Win, the way I see it! Plus, no interest, if I pay it by the end of the month, no problem since I am just getting dinner and a couple drinks. Also, I won't have to pay rent twice this month, the way the pay schedule was, both checks went to rent, leaving me mostly broke, all Month! :(
    Time to order something to eat and some water, for the week, or two, ahead. Not sure what I am hungry FOR, but I am Hungry!! Guess I will see what is on Door Dash...
    Off to the Local Diner for some Grub!! I'm all showered up and ready to roll!( I even shaved!) LOL
    Well, I'm back to 40 hour weeks, we'll see how long that lasts, since our new guy got through his training. So now, 3 days off!! Too bad the weather still sucks! We've had two+ days of snow, couple inches here in the city but, up North they got a foot, or more! Leave it to March to eff up your Winter! LOL
    Well, good day, so far. Slept in, till noon, got my tool roll, volt meter and a little backpack and my checkbook. Went to Walgreens for a 9 volt for the meter, stopped and got a coffee and then went to the parking garage office to pay them a couple bucks, she under charged me a little, when I set it up, last week.

    I then went down to my motorcycle and took off the seat to test the battery. It was at 12.4V, which IS actually low. I started it up and let it get warm, about 5 minutes. It was charging well, 14.3V, and when I tested it after, the battery was 13.3V. So, job done. Looks like I will be doing that again, next week.

    Well, and again for a few more weeks, until it warms up again. I don't have a trickle charger and there is no where to plug one in, at the garage I'm in. I could take the battery out, or just remove the leads but, I think a weekly start and 5 min run will be fine.

    It was good to hear it run. I can't wait to get back out in her!!:)

    Made it through another Work Week!!Today, I am doing some laundry and then heading to my favorite local diner. Last week, I was so beat I didn't even make it. In fact, I was so tired and lazy, I didn't even leave the house for 2 days! I actually ordered Toilet Paper from DoorDash! How lame! LOL

    I am feeling a bit more ambulatory, this week! :) So, just waiting for another load to hit the dryer, shower and then go. Although, since I finished Erasure, great Book(!!), I am unsure what to bring to read...I will find something, before I go. :lovetpu:
    Got through the 2 twelve hour shifts, now 3 eights and then 2 days off, rinse and repeat. The exciting thing was, I got my bike out of storage, Friday. Unfortunately, the weather went back to cold with a side of chilly! Anyways, it will warm up, eventually, and I am ready for it!
    OK well, got called into work tomorrow. Since I am broke, until Friday, and will not be able to do my Thursday late lunch, might as well go to work. So, I will be going to work on a Thursday, it's been a while since I have worked a Thursday. Could be alright! LOL Good Night TPU!
    :lovetpu:
    Three beers down, after a 12 hour day (stressful one, at that) and I am ready for bed. Good Night TPU!!!!!!!!!!
    :lovetpu:
    Went to the library to copy my license. Got the copies. Rode a bus to the Sheriff's office. Was told I needed an appointment. Called the number and was given a website. Caught a bus home, got into my place and...no licence! Freaked out for a second, then went back to the library.

    It is now an hour later than when I made the copies. I get to the copier and lift the top. My license, was still there sitting on the glass!! Get home, schedule an appointment, next week. I then find out I need a 'Color' copy of my license(?) and not only a copy of my certificate, but the original also.
    Arjai
    Arjai
    So, now, I need to re-copy my license, in color, for $2 a copy vs. .25 cents. And I need to pack my Certificate, not just the copy of it. Anyway, next Wednesday is my appointment. I also get to do it Wed. because next Wed. I have off!!! Yea, I get an extra day off!
    I am exhausted but, gotta go back to work. Gotta make it through tonight and tomorrow night then it's two days of nothing to do with work! Mostly laundry, and cleaning and going to see the Sheriff, they need a copy of my certificate, and sleep.

    Hopefully, I have enough money to go to my favorite hole in the wall, no time to check it. I gotta run and get my bus. Toodles TPU, until then...
    :lovetpu:
    Well, juggled some money around my accounts, so I can go enjoy a early dinner/ late lunch at my favorite hole in the wall. I am bringing the book, Erasure, by Percival Everett. It was made into a movie called, American Fiction, I think. The title is something similar. Anywho, I am off to eat and read! :lovetpu:
    So, went to a bar to see the end of the Wild game. We won. Had three beers and a whiskey, contacted a Lyft...Since the bus drove right by me, and then my Lyft driver pulled up, then drove off! :confused: I then had to wait, outside, for a different driver. 28 Deg F. and I spent an additional 5 minutes waiting!

    Turned out to be the best thing all day. Friendly waitress, and bartender. Some random dude there, brought my backpack out to me, after I went out to catch the second Lyft. I think I love that Bar, Maxwell's on Washington Ave. Never had a bad time there. Unfortunately, it's in MPLS. not local.

    But, it is on my way home from work and, normally, I can catch a bus, a block away. So, won't be my last time there, been there a bunch, in the last 3 months. Sometimes, I am the only one there! Other times, there is nowhere to sit. Either way, friendly people and awesome staff! Win, Win. I am thinking of moving nearer to them! LOL

    Good Night, TPU! :confused::lovetpu: Weird day...Valentine's...seems I can't win. Oh well, there's always next year! ;)
    ok, so. I spent the better part of 6 + hours figuring my trip and the costs of my trip, during the last couple of days. Tommorow, I am going to the bank to see if they will give me a loan. I've worked very hard, over three years to improve my credit rating, last check it was at 760.

    Which should mean a loan is in the cards. We'll see if they make me jump any weird hoops, hopefully that number means something to them.
    :confused:
    Well instead of 2 days off, I have 2 days of training at the office location that I have to take 2 busses to, and leave at 7AM to get there on time. Did I mention the 1/2 mile walk from the bus stop to the office? Awesome. I have already worked 48 hours in the last 5 days and now I get to spend 8 hours today and friday listening to some wanna be tough guy tell us how to do our job.
