Complaint Thursdays

Recommended Posts

Moriarties all with negatives waves... seriously as someone who has made peace with my demons for the most part... I work on realizing life is less about me and it more about me being of service while enjoying those moments of levity. Cant afford to get too dark anymore, not worth my sanity.

Hey old dudes. Why can't you get changed in under 3 hours in a gym locker room? More specifically why do you have to pose like a Saturday Night Live scetch the whole time? I just find it odd to have a conversation with another person while one of you is naked as a Jay bird, posted up like Captain Morgan with a foot up on the bench and the other one is fully dressed and has been ready to leave for at least 10 minutes. And in that 10 minutes Captain nude hasn't made any progress towards not trying to show everyone in the room his dick. What's the deal? Been going to the gym for just shy of 2 decades now and it's the same everywhere.

Pile drivers.  Fire engines.  So much noise.  Why are there fire engines three or four times daily?  There are not fires in downtown Buffalo three or four times daily.

Grade 2 ankle sprain over the weekend. Just what in needed a few weeks before Christmas as there are a ton of social events I had committed to over the next two weeks. I don't know how some of you work from home on a regular basis. This will be my fourth straight day and I am going stir crazy - any human contact at this point is welcome. My life has been shrunk to about 300 sq ft of my house.

Edit: plus my right foot now looks like a beluga whale based on swelling + paleness

Which one of you yahoo's is robo calling me from North Carolina.  Office and cell.

I really think some Canes fans are trolling me big time.

Hey Boyes,

That is one skinny foot you have there and hairy toes.

Nice, looks like a good one.

I've worked from home full-time for the past 11 years.    I'm busy in the evenings shuttling my boys around to their practices and whatnot, otherwise, like you said, I'd lose my mind.    I also frequent a few coffee shops during the day, just to see live humans (I don't consider my wife a human).

My dad’s house started stinking and he suspected a rat might have died in the walls.

We inspected and discovered what appears to be an infestation of otters. Will likely have to cut open the floor to find it. Fingers crossed we actually do that in the right spot instead of turning the downstairs floor into a giant whack-a-mole board.

I can't complain until 12 a.m. December 14th. What's up with that?

Right there with you, man.

I dunno what is wrong with me lately, but I've been spending money like there's no tomorrow and my credit card statement from last month is horrifying. Too much retail therapy and not enough self control.

We had a bunch of otters take up residence in our neighborhood retention ponds during the summer.  It was really cool while it lasted.  Apparently they moved on to your dad's walls.

Start looking at other jobs higher than where you are. The postings will tell you the qualifications, and you can start working towards those, either through work or in your spare time.

They ain’t the cute little critters you see in the memes. They ***** everywhere and have their own special brand of stink. As soon as we got in there searching, my daughter and I were “smells like otters.”

Dad has oceanfront property and has been battling them on the beach off and on for years. But they’ve always stayed on the beach. We discovered what appears to be a path up the bank to a hard to access corner of the house where it looks like they found an opening that let them get inside the foundation.

We’ve got a restoration company lined up to do clean up and close the access next week. My brother-in-law and I are probably going to start ripping up the floor this weekend to save the expense of them doing it. I’m not looking forward to what we will find.

That's kinda the rub. What I'm doing right now is a bit of a dead end. There really isn't an "up". My hope was to make a slide within my current company into a role with more upward potential, but the prospects of that have dimmed.

And I thought it was bad when I found two rabbit carcasses in my old basement. 😱

He’s planning on selling next year. Built the house himself 50 years ago, but just can’t keep it up anymore.

There are pluses that outweigh the odd otter infestation. This is his beach

If I remember right, they literally set up latrines and then roll in them as a way of marking territory. I remember watching some nature doc and aw look at the otters... spraying each other in various bodily fluids... fishy feces, too. Noooo thank you. Nope.

I know a few zoo folk and they all say the number one animal they hate dealing with is otters. They call them furry stinky chainsaws. Slippery, covered in fishy crap, and bad tempered with nasty teeth and claws.  

 

Sorry, man haha godspeed

Oh yeah - on top of the foot elephantitis - the furnace took a ***** last week and I get to buy a brand new one for $5k+. Just what we need during the holiday season. The installation is scheduled for tomorrow, so hoping there aren't any unforeseen issues that cost me even more. The existing furnace has been a demon child for a long time now, needing repairs every year at the most inconvenient time so at least we are getting rid of the headache and the new one should be far more reliable...

... we hope.
