Until you do my job, or work for the IT department don't question us(someone made the top of the **** list, and the bottom of the 'important' list today).
Being in IT, I can relate to this SO DAMN MUCH. When it comes to computers, people seem to like to think they know what they're doing even when they don't. Most aren't rude about it but every so often you run into someone who doesn't know what on earth they're saying. It's like If you knew what you were doing then I wouldn't be here. Ugh.

I see the same thing as an electrician.

There's tons of politics at play in the companies, all the foremen have their favorites, and talk trash about you when you're not around. You don't get certain jobs just because you're not a suck-up to them.

I work hard, respect my workers, and go home. I take pride in my work.

Some people don't, they don't know what they're doing, disrespect all the workers but the foreman, but they move up in the ladders.

I don't play that game.

Amen to number 11 I don't care for imports. I was at an auto show here in Syracuse this past weekend and while passing through Toyota to get to Ford a salesman stopped me and asked my opinion of the 2013 Camry. I told him it was a piece of **** and he should be ashamed for selling them. That was the end of his questions and he told me that was my opinion.

Wow, that one is pretty bad. It's not even round!! It's got one way streets and everything! It's probably been there since the horse and buggy days, so that might explain the odd layout.

Try this rotary in a town a few miles from me. It is horrendous during rush hour. Whoever designed it must have been stoned.

Last night, I passed a tiny Asian lady in a 2012/2013 Honda Pilot. The speed limit was either 60 or 65, she was driving 55, on her cell phone, in the dark.....without headlights. The only lights she had were daytime running lights, which weren't full powered so they were dim. She never used her blinker, and it took a couple of drivers flashing their brights to get her to turn her damn headlights on.

OMG. I think you'd end up getting stuck going in a circle if it was busy!

Western Mass. is one of the hardest places to predict weather in. You have weather patterns coming from three different directions converging in or around Blandford, then heading east they hit that cut-down traprock ridge between West Side and Westfield that Lane spent 30 years excavating. (I grew up watching that get lower every year, and every summer our sunsets were lower as a result.)

I remember one weatherman on Channel 40 who was an alkie, and I think it happened when he moved to Springfield.

Cancer sucks. Cancer post-op is almost worse than the cancer. Best part is, being alive to b*tch about it!
