  • ... Tough guy can't handle closing the store for a week, even with 2 days off! He's 29 years old, still lives with mommy. Walks around, talks the talk, but, true colors have been shown. He thinks he can leave, and be a tough guy doing it. Reality? Mommy's boy, can't hack.
    OK, made it through the weekend. Now it's just a haul for another week. I have one transferred employee, starting tomorrow, and two new hires starting on the 1st! So, just as I promised, my assistant mgr, things are going to get better! We just need to keep our heads down and work throught it! AND, we have another new hire starting after the 1st. Too bad Rob couldn't hack it, He walked out Saturday morning....
    Well, just got home from work, I am the new boss. My new manager quit, like the little punk-ass would, by just turning in his keys and walking away. He supposedly has a new job running a fork lift! Seriously? He will be begging for his job back, in 2 weeks. Guaranteed! But, he won't get it back, because why? 3 guesses why. He thinks he is screwing the DM, he's screwing himself!
    Just got back from an across town trip, to go to an Art Gallery. It was opening night, Gods and Monsters. People were encouraged to wear costumes and there were quit a few, the artwork was anywhere from blah to cool to WTF? It was fun though, just to get out and about and yes, there were plenty of beautiful people milling around. I tried to get my, on again, off again, girlfriend to go but...she decided not to go. :(
    Got lot's to think about. Big boss wants me to take a store. One that is in true need of fixing, another that is good. The manager from the good store is slated to go to the fixer. But, the fixer is much closer to me. Either way, It's about a grand a month more than I make, and A bunch of extra shiitake, and I am not a fan of Mushrooms!! ;) Decisions, decisions....
    I am going to go get the i5 in the morning. So, tomorrow night, after work, I will try to switch out the CPU w/ my 3770!
    Waiting for the i5 3rd gen HP....Did not go get it from the Mission since, it would have been an Hour wait for the returning bus...
    Yesterday, Wednesday, at work I was unpacking the weekly order. They pack it with those 4'x4' plastic air bubbles. I need to pop them all, before tossing them. I grabbed a new razor blade and promptly sliced a gash across my thigh! Then, moments later cut my finger!! Spent Wednesday Night, into Thursday morning at the VA emergency room. No stitches. But about 5 "SteriStrips" to hold the wound closed.
    Hungry. It's late. Gotta be to work early. I guess I will fix a bowl of cereal and hit the sack. Ordering a pizza at this point, seems like it will take too long, waiting for it, eating it,,,that could take nearly an hour! Breakfast before bed, it is!!
    I am so beat. I need to find some food, call my Lawyer and finish some laundry. Exciting times! Oh, and brew some coffee!! That's the ticket, yea.
    Got a new boss. I taught him everything he knows, about cars. Now, to teach him how to be a man.
    Man, Long day. up at 5AM. Here it is nearly midnight, putzing around here, again.
    Just talked to the shop, they hired a guy but, asked me to fill out an app, of premises. "If this guy doesn't work out." So, tomorrow morning, I will drop it off. I plan to show up at opening, so we can talk a bit more. :)
    Talked with my VA counselor, yesterday. She is going to try and work with the housing people to stabilize my rent fluctuations. Also, we talked about work and school and we determined it is time for a change. I am going to go to the shop across the street today, see if they still need a "Lube Tech" and what they pay and what they expect. Could be a 2 week notice in the cards!
    Well, here we go again. Housing is raising my rent, again, after my yearly review. I get more hours in the Winter so they think I make more than I do! Getting my rent changed back takes for ever, and a day! Hopefully, I can get this worked out before it becomes an issue, once again!!
    I went to get my box, with the computer I bought, and the office was closed. 1 pm on a Friday, nobody home. So, looks like it will be Tuesday, before I can get it out of the office. :(
    Check to Check, I don't know why they pay me every two weeks. They don't last that long!
    Gotta work tomorrow, may skip the update this week. We'll see how I feel tomorrow, me back has been achy since an incident at work.
    Although I have not recorded any 10Mbps highlights of my new Wifi, I do get a consistent 3Mbps up and down. Which is over 3 times better!!
    Sorry Mates, gonna be gone until the 8th! Used up my Wifi allotment. New Service install Thursday Morning. Until Then!!
    Well, it was a good day, and a bad day. But, I have now had a glass of Wine, so the rest doesn't matter!! ;)
