  • Well made it through another 12 hour day, only a couple of people had to be put out, fortunately they were cooperative. I really didn't want to get physical with anyone today, had a horrible night of sleep and was barely awake all day. I am gonna have a whiskey and maybe a beer, or two.

    Then it is off to bed, I have a couple chores to do, before leaving for work. I am debating, whether to stay at the Hotel Monday night or cruise home for a few hours. I work until 11pm Mon and have to start Tue at 7 am. I lose about 2 hours taking the Metro home and back.

    I will check the bank account in the morning, see if I can absorb the $57 hotel stay. I think it should be ok but, I made a large payment on my Bike loan and I am unsure where I am standing, right now. Oh, and Tuesday is my double, I hate being tired for 16 hours! ANYhow, Good Night TPU! :lovetpu:

    Well, just packed a few things, so I am going to stay at the Hotel. So, see you all sometime Tuesday evening, or Wed if I'm too tired.
    Well, woke up late for work today, set my alarm wrong.:shadedshu: Also, looks like I have a 16 hour day Tuesday. It also looks like I may still get my days off, just the extra shift on Tuesday. So, yea, kinda good, no?
    Well I went to Key's, earlier, for a late lunch, then walked home in the rain. Decided to watch the football game on Amazon Prime, and ordered some beer and Whisky from DoorDash. Had a couple beers, played RAID and then entered some codes at Winston.com. Now, it's 2:30-ish and time for bed. Good Night TPU.
    Well, as far as I know, I have 3 days off, starting now-ish (I got home 3 hours ago). Let's hope it is true! Kinda tired but, gonna catch up on the Youtube posts, then bed. Good night TPU!
    :lovetpu:
    Man, I am tired. I am getting a little burned out on this job. Ever since the new company took over. They promised us a ton then, the whole crew quit when a new boss, Brian, took over. His new crew are a bunch of dip wad yes men, to him. They do nothing but Bitch about this and that, but offer no help or solutions, other than stupid suggestions.

    Currently, that is not possible. We are short handed and they are not helping. They think they are, sending us people that don't speak English, Hood rats that have Neck tattoo's and stupid attitude (Dude had TikTok video's of him taunting cops at the Walgreens NEXT DOOR!). The list goes on.

    Out of the last 15 interviews, we've got 4 hires. 1 is a Security guy with experience. 1 turned into a fen head and is completely effing up, he's gone soon. The other two? One seems competent, the other can't figure out the Front desk(?!) and has said he doesn't like conflict. He's not gonna make it, he's got until the end of the week.

    Good night, TPU.
    Got home about a half hour ago. Went to the bathroom and spent some time reading the American Legion magazine I picked up in the mail, when I got home. I just cracked a beer, hopefully I don't doze off before it's done!

    Made it through one beer, heading for number 2!!:rockout:

    just opened my 4th beer. Last year was the last time I drank 4 beers. The MN Wild had just lost to the Dallas Stars, our old team. I grew up watching the MN North Stars. The team moved to dalls, which was misery, on all counts. Anyways, I drank the 4th to commemorate a season that should not have gone to the playoffs.

    This team is still paying for the contracts of two players, Parise and Suter. Unless we can do it with out that freedom in the salary cap, which would be absolutely a hard road, it's 2 more years until those contracts are done. Our talent pool, in Iowa, and in the juniors, is deep, but, until then, Go Wild!!
    Ok so, here we go again, 16 hours on less than 5 hours sleep. I'll be surprised if I get anything done tomorrow, like I planned. :ohwell:
    I set up the schedule for this week, one of the managers is gone, he's back for Friday. I set it up so I would work 4 shifts monday thru thur and the other Sgt,. would work the next shift, those 4 days. We would both be working 6 days but no double, 16 hour shifts. Hunky Doory, right?

    So this a**hole changes the schedule and eff's us both! The other SGT. has 2 16's and then starts his 2 12's. Somebody make me understand this! My boss is taking days off because he is stressed out, can't imagine why. Thanks for looking out for us, again dip wad, dude has done nothing, in 3 years, that benefits any of us! :confused: :mad:

    I am going to personally Thank him on Monday, that is if he's man enough to show his face! He's likely just going to hide in his office all day!

    Yep he avoided me. Today he has training meetings, so I don't expect to see him today, either...I think the grapevine whispered in his ear, that I am pissed off at him.
    Yesterday was a whole lot of nothing. Sat around in my underwear and Played Raid: Shadow Legends, all day and into the night. That's it! I took a nap around noon, woke up at 7 am, and hit the sack at 3 am. I ate half a box of Triscuit's and a handful of "Midgees" Tootsie Roll's.

    Today, woke up around noon-thirty and I am still in my undies trying to think of something to do. Without my bike, to easily transport myself to anywhere, I finding it hard to remember what I did and where I went, before new Moto. I know, I will walk down, or rather up, to Key's Cafe for a late Lunch/ Early Dinner. Which will probably be a Breakfast Menu meal!
    Arjai
    Arjai
    That way, all the meals are covered and they have a very fine Bloody Mary there. That is the goto dessert, after my Steak and Eggs w/ coffee. OK, Plan! Now, shower, shave and walk. Awesome, just writing it out gave me a fantastic idea!

    I just check the weather, gotta know what to wear and... It's a full Moon tonight! :cool:
    Well, Friday I put my bike up for Winter storage. So today was a bit sad. I had to take the Train in and a Bus back. The ride back, dropped me off on 6th and Jackson, instead of
    the regular stop, across the street, due to construction. 5 blocks in the pouring rain, jeans are now in the dryer.

    I don't really even care about the rain part, it's the not riding my Bike part that sucks. But, the weather is changing, here in the Great White North, and there is nothing I can do, but store my bike safely, where they will care for it. Now a days there are trickle chargers, back in the day it was a trick to keep your battery charged and safe from boiling, or freezing!

    Anyways, no need to keep complaining, it's just a fact of life in these parts. It's one of those things one has to deal with, despite not liking to. Soon enough it will be cold and snowy and I will be busy surviving at the bus stop. Anywho, I need some sleep. Good Night TPU!

    Had a great day out on the Bike. Hung out at a local lake /w a bottle of water and a book. Then stopped by a local Malt shop for a late lunch and a coffee chocolate malt. Then putzed around in traffic, during rush hour, to work for a 2 hour training meeting we have to attend once a year.

    Asbestos training, for the 4th time...However, the presenter finished it up, almost, an hour early!! Plus, I managed to get to work 5 minutes before the coffee shop closed. So, overall, a decent day. It is so nice out, right now, I might just go back out for a ride, to nowhere. Plus, tomorrow I put the bike up for winter storage.

    Might as well, it's gonna be April before I get to ride again!
    Well, just got home a little while ago. My apartment was messed up, when I opened the door. Realized that they came in and replaced a smoke detector and switched out some lights in my bathroom. Oh, and they flipped all the breakers, in the process.

    Can they actually do that? in the UK a landlord has no legal right to enter their tenancies without gaining the tenants permission as well as give a minimum period of notice but if the tenant is not there they cannot go inside.
    OK so, just finished 2 12 hour shifts, Sat and Sun (today). Now, I have a double,16 hours, Monday. I got home 15 minutes ago, and have to be back there in less than 7 hours, I have to leave here by 6:15 am. So, good night TPU, I'll see you in about 24 hours. :sleep:
    I just got back from the bar, down the street, and saw a couple of friends I haven't seen for a while. That was good but, I have a 12 hour shift in the morning. So, Good Night TPU!
    :sleep: :lovetpu:
    I worked 56 hours in 5 days, and was a little bit low energy, today. My legs were cramping up last night, from all the walking. i slept in and then hopped on the bike. Took back roads to Woodbury, had a Pizza for lunch and watched the Grand Tourismo Movie. it was good if you like racing.

    Tomorrow, Friday, I am going to Oakdale to watch Oppenheimer, at 11:15 AM, so Good Night!!

    I absolutely Love, love, my new comforter. It's a dark gray and has a velvet-like outer. It's not too warm, has the right "weight" AND, it fit nicely on my bike under my bungee strap cargo net. I stayed in bed an extra half hour, I was sooooo comfy. I am completely surprised and delighted with it!:D
    Ok, gonna go get some smokes, then go to Target for a new comforter. The one I have is a bit used up and isn't worth sending to the dry cleaners. The Temp dropped to 77F w/ 67% humidity, should be a pleasant ride. Oh, and rush hour should be cleared out!
    Just got back from the uniform shop we use for work. I stopped at a nearby coffee shop for a spell and google mapped a different way home. Turned out that was the ticket!
    Well, looks like today is going to be an indoor day, unless I make a late night run for cigarettes (most likely). If nothing else, it should cool off a little. Meanwhile, I am gonna continue to sit here, in my undies, and maybe do some reading, while the laundry runs. OK, sounds like the new plan. ;)
