Yep, I remember shaving in the Army (with cold water). Then taking a shit on a ice covered latrine. Yes, and it was snowing and the wind was blowing both ways -

good times. had a 'plumber'(what he said) during a home depot trip ask me for a ride back to a town 40 miles away because he was caught driving on a suspended license and they impounded his van. first thing i wanted to ask was why he was driving on a suspended license in the first place...

in my exp construction is a shit industry. almost nothing will stop you from being able to get even the most basic jobs. hell, we've had labor on jobs that lived in half-way houses(aka I just got out of prison and they're trying to transition me to normal life since it's been so long) working as labor on jobs. we even bought them basic tools and PPE so they could start on something besides cleaning up garbage.

many of our foreman are high level drunks. I'm talking the type that have a beer before they brush their teeth in the morning.

it's the bottom barrel of society. even the office staff aren't much better. and until legit schools started offering Construction Management degrees nobody actually went to school to "get into" construction. most people tried and failed at something else and ended up here. nobody field or office can plan 2 inches in front of their faces. even when they know they'll need something they will wait on purpose so it's an emergency when they actually need it.

I could go on for hours as to why this industry sucks. shady owners and shady labor providers that will call immigration at the end of a job so their labor gets arrested and they don't have to pay them. yeah that happens. not at my co(it's to big) but smaller ones.

this is why I'm going back to school. I have to get out and the hard part is once you're in it's hard to get out. tenure is the largest determining factor to pay. doesn't matter how shitty you are at your job. "But he's been here for 10 years" means everything and it's driving me nuts.

/rant.... for now
dude, there's better companies out there. but there's more s.hitty ones. i've worked for both.

HINT FOR NEW USERS: The kit comes with a pricker/stabber thing to get a blood sample. It's graduated from 1-5. DO NOT start on #5 -
my dad's a type 2. so i unfortunately know way too much about it... when his readings are all over, it generally has to do with not eating on time, or overeating. but he's also on a few variations of insulin, so his dosages of that affect the readings as well. it's like balancing an egg on 3 stacked chairs!

2. Pay someone to fix it (again)
buy a new mower. they're cheap enough now to be disposable. the diagnosis charge just to inspect most mowers will buy new one.

sometimes the voices in one's own head have better ideas than the voices outside.

I was annoyed by the rear-end-shaking guy because he started a second thread on the same thing in 10 minutes. I expressed my displeasure.
