The happy time ends

March 31st, 2011 No comments

The last two weeks I had three day weekends. Last week because I traded with a coworker, the week before that because of my birthday.

The week before that my boss was on vacation. And just as a warmup he took the prior two Mondays off (which, since I work solo on Sundays, was like a three day weekend).

But it all comes crashing down.

This weekend is one day, the other day I traded with coworker. After that he goes on a three week vacation. Which means extra hours, if not extra days.

But you think, hey, overtime! And yeah, you’d be right except for the part where it’s worth it. I mean, I’ll take the money, but it only works out to an extra three bucks an hour. Which means it’s just more time at a place I hate doing shit I didn’t learn with the student loans I’m paying off.

Sigh.

The commercial real estate market needs to pick up.

How spoiled am I by my credit union?

It looks like I’m going to hafta eat $1.25 (so far) in ATM fees after my CU reimburses me for them.

I was actually a little angry about that until I remembered what dealing with Chase was like.

So why the fuck are you still with a bank?

I <3 my wireless headphones

March 16th, 2011 1 comment

This might be the lamest thing I’ve ever posted. But I added the “rave” category a while ago and have yet to use it. I think.

So.

Wow, why did I wait so long to buy these mofos? I wanted them mostly because of snags and tangles. Apple seems to design their earbud cords to seek out things to get hung up on. Using my Timbuk2 was like a hippy chick wearing shorts in a field of Velcro. Snag city.

No more of that shit.

Unexpected benefits:
I can put my iPhone anywhere on my person and still listen to music.

No cord reel to fuss with! Not needing that means I can leave my headphones easily accessible in my work locker. Helpful when certain people are on shift with me.

I can change clothes at the gym without exposing myself to the occasionally tragic music playing. Why the fuck would anyone EVER play “She Likes Me For Me”???

The ear cushions are nice and cushy without being sound isolating.

And they were like sixty bucks!

Final proof: Self-teaching is bullshit

March 2nd, 2011 No comments

Yesterday in three hours I failed to achieve this.

Today, after my boss told me what tool and technique to use, I did that in a total of 48 minutes, including two trips back to the shop (via the stairs, elevator tech’s here) and talking to the dumb bitch running housekeeping today. Actual drilling time on the second hole, I shit you not: FOURTEEN SECONDS.

This is why I hate my boss.

That’s a titanium drill bit on that bad girl. I’m hardcore like that.
