Today I got a very sarcastic email from one of our Director's about a position that has been open for 2 years before I joined the company last June and I did the reasonable thing and responded calmly without making him look like a complete jackass to the rest of his peers. #Growth

We've had an opening for almost 3 years now and he's tried to blame recruiting since I joined of why it's not being filled. He doesn't want to acknowledge that it's a trash office in the middle of nowhere. Anyways, when he tried to send a group email this morning busting our balls about the language of the AD, I sent him a direct email that showed it was an AD he had written himself and signed off on 6 months ago. I could have simply hit reply all to make him look like a complete jackass, but I went to him directly, instead of dunking on his ass. Maybe he's just having a really bad day, you know?

in general i get v excited when i discover a pocket in an article of clothing that i hadn't previously noticed. Perfect example, went for a run the other day and realized my shorts had a little zipper pocket for a key and i hadn't noticed it before b/c the zipper is right up by the elastic waistband or oriented horizontal instead of vertical. felt like i just won the lottery. been bragging about it pretty much 24/7/365 ever since.

did i worry that when i finished my run i was going to reach into my standard pockets, not feel my key fab and then have a meltdown b/c i thought it fell out of my pocket somewhere on the trail? yes of course i was worried that would happen. and let me tell you, the second you realize "oh yeah...secret pocket" its like that feeling right after you wake up from having a bad dream and realize it wasn't real it was just a dream and you just feel immediately at ease.

I forgot to put meat on my sandwich this morning before heading to work. I even got it out of the fridge and everything. Probably dementia.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

Whenever a younger person does something stupid that I distinctly remember doing I subconsciously judge them now.

Full release and new hip is working great.  Now my knee is swollen and hurting after hip therapy.

I would recommend going to a chiropractor to get straightened out.  I did after getting a full release and it seemed to help.

I think I pulled or strained or something a muscle in my back. I have no idea how it happened, but it's very painful.  :frown:

This is a terrible time to need any sort of elective procedure. Ts and Ps.

Psh, I wouldn't go to a doctor until I couldn't walk. I'm very stubborn with medical care
