"Dearly Beloved, we are gathered together to say goodbye to Goddess' recently departed water heater.
It was a good water heater, giving 20 years of faithful service.
Let us focus on the happy things she gave us: the hot water and the scalding hot water.
Let us remember that she didn't cost Goddess a damn dime because Goddess was renting the trailer when she was installed.
While we're remembering the old water heater, let us say a prayer, also, for the
gaping hole in Goddess' savings account caused by the new water heater. Amen."
BTW, that water heater money is coming right out of the Christmas gift fund, kids!
Merry Christmas and enjoy!
Ever the procrastinator, I said to Mike South today, "HEY! What about those pics [of Dan Davis]?!"
He said, "They are coming."
Pfffft. So is the end of the world....
I was scanning the web for more pics of cops for my Hott Cops site, and I came across the website of Floodwood, Minnesota. Their motto is "A City for All Seasons." What does that mean exactly? Are there some cities that just close up shop in the Spring? That just fold in the Fall? What's the deal, Floodwoodites?
Overtime Hawg has been calling me all day asking me to come to work for her today
and possibly the rest of the week. She is SHIT. OUT. OF. LUCK.
I got back from the chiropractor this morning and she had called me at least six times.
I thought, "Damn, lady. Would it not occur to you after the first two calls that I'm not home?!"
She's called three more times while I'm sitting here writing this.
About two weeks ago, one of my co-workers was out sick. OT Hawg took two nights
and the boss gave me one. She said, "Next time she's off, I'll give you two nights and her one."
The very next week, I called my co-worker to ask her something about a computer program
she had been telling me about and OT Hawg answered the phone.
I was fugging livid. Apparently this woman wasn't feeling well and she
took the night off. OT Hawg very nicely took the hours for herself.
That night I drew a line in the sand. Took my ass long enough,
but I decided unless somebody in her family died, I am unavailable to switch shifts.
I made some changes to accommodate my boss, but fug that, too.
She has proven time and again, that when push comes to shove,
she is more than willing to let OT Hawg do whatever she wants. The boss always makes her excuses as to why she can't fill in.
She called this morning while I was out, and said she couldn't do it either, would I go?
T.S. I'm sick of them using me.
I'm cleaning the kitchen because the guys are coming to put the new water heater in and I have to be here for that, too.
It's like my husband says, everytime I switch with her it's at my own expense. No more.
And I'm NOT giving her any time at Christmas like I did last year either. She had an entire week off. Then she had the balls to ask
for the 23rd off because she needed to bake pies. When I agreed to that, she gave me some sob
story about why she needed the 26th off, too. Female Offspring #1 was only home
four days and I had to work two of them. No more. I'm taking my entire week this year.
