Not A Great Day!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry I missed out on posting yesterday.

It wasn’t a great day for me. I was informed at work that I did not stay in the running for my boss’ position here at work. That stings even if you are mostly sure you wouldn’t get it anyway. I am ok with it, but it isn’t ever something you want to hear, ya know? I was told that I was impressive and that I made the decision harder than they had initially thought, which is a huge plus. I let them know that I was willing, able, and ready to move up. My boss said that he told the rest of the interviewers that I would be a great leader one day, whether it was here or somewhere else. He has always had my back and continues to even entering retirement shortly. The rest of my day, at work, fell flat. I didn’t care to do anything and rode it out.

When I got home I stayed in my work clothes because we had an electrician coming at 4:30-5:00pm. Well long story short he just…didn’t show up. Who does that? I know that plumbers and electricians have jobs that run over and everything. That is understandable, but to not call your next solidified appointment to let them know is a dick move. So I sat and waited until about six and then figured he wasn’t going to show for real. I still haven’t heard from him at all. I’m going to be calling a few other people today, I guess. I need some one to come in and do the damn work, plain and simple. If someone was willing to pay me to do my job, I’d do it. I’m not sure what is so hard about this concept. So we are still stuck with no answers, or solutions.

Work is doing slow today, as I am posting early. The one thing I am looking forward to is just after work. A few of us are meeting at a local bar in town to ‘send off’ our Human Resources Assistant, who is moving to Virginia. We are just going to have a drink or two and tell her good bye.

Tomorrow I have my Bio-metric screening at work, and will have to fast for 10-12 hours. They will check our vitals, as well as cholesterol. They then give us a print out of all the results so that we can take any action if needed. I will most likely need to take mine to my doctor, as my results have been high the last three years. :/

That is all for me today. I hope you all have a great Wednesday, and I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀

Shameless & Lost

Hey Everyone!

This is a much later post than I had originally planned on, so I’ll keep it a bit short.

My wife and I have been binge watching the show ‘Shameless’ on Netflix and we love it. The show is absolutely intended for mature audiences, and for good reason. There is plenty of nudity of the male and female variety, very suggestive language, violence, drug use, and alcohol use. That is just to cover the big ones haha. It hits on everything you can think of and things you can’t. Most the the show cannot be predicted, which keeps it very interesting. The actors are great, and play their roles extremely well.  If you don’t like a character, you are in luck, because there are plenty more to choose from!

This also reminds me that I never covered what I thought about the ‘Lost’ series. I have been putting this off because I thought it went terribly wrong. It is a shame really, because  I loved the build up. I think they fell short on a few things that they should have gone into detail about. The ending was weak. For a series that was suspenseful, serious, and emotion grabbing, it fell way short on the ending. Very anticlimactic. I also have to hit on the time travel, and yes I know it isn’t real. But, from what scientist believe today, as well as what common sense would dictate, they slipped up. Towards the end when it switched from an island based shoe to a sci-fi show, certain timelines didn’t match up or make sense. I feel like to stop people from noticing they added a bunch of back and forth, and fancy jargon, with vague reasoning and left it at that. The show overall was great I would just say the last season was messed up for me. I would have wanted it all to end better but it was still a good series.

Now that my review rants are over I can tell you that I have been very busy today with work, and that is why this post is a bit late. I have had a few shop users with issues, and a PC replacement that took up a lot more time than it needed to. My wife’s baby shower is Saturday and her friend will be coming to stay with us from out of town on Thursday.

I hope you enjoyed my mini reviews today haha. I’ll be back again tomorrow, so I hope to see you again.

Please consider spreading the word about my blog if you enjoy it! I love seeing the growth and meeting new people. Thanks all! 😀 😀
