What's bumming your stone today?
 
That would be, what exactly?

lumberjim 10-08-2008 10:34 PM

if there were just more threads that i could relay my frustrations on.....

I think that's what the cellar really needs. more whining and crying about personal trifles. It gives it such a real feeel. so very.......uhm......real.

my ingrown toenail this, my mean boss that....my stupid abusive spouse the other thing......

i

just



cant

get

enough of it.


moar.


plz

I like this thread better.

Sheldonrs 10-09-2008 05:20 PM

I think a better question would be "who's stoning your bum?".

footfootfoot 10-09-2008 05:34 PM

The inchling got all Zany Man on me and head butted me in the lip. Accidentally.

FYI, it doesn't bleed any less if it's accidental. There's a pun lurking in there.

dar512 10-10-2008 09:18 AM

Ah! The origin of the phrase "Bleeding lip conservative". :D

binky 10-10-2008 09:28 AM

Ack!! My husband just told me this morning he "volunteered" me to watch a coworker's 6 yr old for "just 4 hours" tomorrow while they work some OT. Nevermind that after the last time we agreed never again. this kid is one of those kids that seems sweet, then spends the whole time chasing my already timid dog around, not trying to be mean, but totally freaking him out.

glatt 10-10-2008 09:33 AM

Charge your husband for your time. Seriously. I'd say $20/hr is fair. Then spend that money selfishly on yourself.

Shawnee123 10-10-2008 09:45 AM

Also, can you tell the 6 year old to stop chasing the dog, or does "watching" the kid not include use of authority?

binky 10-10-2008 09:54 AM

Good idea Glatt. And yes Shawnee I can (and did, last time tell her about 10 times an hour, to stop -apparently not a word she hears at home!) My problem is that I don't know her Mom very well and don't want to upset her(the Mom) although that might get me out of "volunteering" again. PLus I don't think I can fix 6 years of lax parenting in 4 hours.

Pico and ME 10-10-2008 09:58 AM

Re-direct...with twinkies!

lol

HungLikeJesus 10-10-2008 10:03 AM

Speaking of lax, just give her some chocolate (whoops, that was Exlax?). That should keep her busy.

binky 10-10-2008 10:04 AM

actually I was thinking of taking them for donuts- right before Mom picks her up :evil2:

binky 10-10-2008 10:06 AM

LMAO HLJ and I mean for real I spit hot tea all over my desk

Cancer has been a busy little beaver lately. Yesterday I found out that an long time friend just died of breast cancer and today I found out that my closest aunt died of lung cancer.

Jeez. What's next?

Rrrraven 06-21-2011 12:58 AM

People who yell at me on the phone in the course of my workday.

And blisters.

You were right, you know it.

DanaC 06-21-2011 04:41 PM

Fucking stupid bastard sodding eczema. Or, more accurately, the fucking stupid bastard sodding eczema creams that ruin all my clothes.

Every time I put a load of washing in, maybe 20% of it comes out usable. Everything else is covered in thick grease mixed with powder. Wash it two or three times, doesn;t seem to help. Tried all kinds of detergents and powders. The only ones that ever work are the ones I can't fucking use because they set my skin off. And even they don;t get rid of it all.

Again today, I put some washing through at mum's house and out of the entire load, there's two tops and one pair of jeans that are wearable. Three times they went through. Once on the hottest possible wash. Most of it came out caked in grey globs of grease, and all the seams (even on the 'wearable' clothes) are greyed with grease.

I've searched online for solutions but nothing seems to work. I've tried all sorts of additives (oxy stuff etc) and nothing fucking works.

Just so fucked off and tired of it all.

sexobon 06-21-2011 04:57 PM

Did your online research include the contacting the manufacturers of the creams? They must have received similar inquiries before and their chemists should be able to offer a solution if one exists.

DanaC 06-21-2011 04:59 PM

Hmm. No, but I think I'll give that a go. Thanks!

ZenGum 06-21-2011 08:43 PM

Dana: nudism.

Pix pls.

Pico and ME 06-21-2011 09:19 PM

Can you use Dawn dish soap?

casimendocina 06-26-2011 07:14 AM

3Foot, that really sucks. Fuck cancer!

Dana, hope that Sexobon's suggestion provides information that solves the problem. You've probably tried this, but would some kind of thin undergarment like a long sleeved singlet etc... which you could then wash separately be of any use in protecting outer clothes?

Zen: not only smart, but practical as well...

DanaC 06-26-2011 07:42 AM

Yeah, you'd think the undergarment thing would work right? *smiles* something aboutthis hydrous ointment means it just gets everywhere!

I contacted the manufacturers. Their only real suggestion (though they were lovely about it) was to place a piece of parchment paper over the clothing and iron over it, so it lifts the grease off.

I think they think I am talking about a few spots of grease lol. Actually it's everywhere on everything, into the seams and in the cloth. I'd have to iron every inch of every item of clothing/bedding, from the smallest ankle sock to the largest bed sheet. Aside from the fact I'd have to use a forest's worth of paper for each wash, it'd take frikkin hours.

I'm investigating some of the 'tricks of the trade' that mechanics and engineers use to get tha engine grease out of their overalls.


@ Zen: In your dreams honey pie :p

casimendocina 06-26-2011 07:53 AM

:( What a bugger! Hope the mechanics/engineers can assist.

This is the shiznit. it will take out oil stains that have been washed and dried. Rub it into the fabric, then launder as usual with laundry soap. See if you can get this in the UK. There are other Gojo flavors, but lemon is the only one with the ability to remove washed and dried oil stains.

Kind of, but better because, well, because it's American.

Dawn dish soap. Its what they use to clean the oil of of birds after an oil spill.

zippyt 06-26-2011 11:14 AM

Yeah dawn Rocks , deals with grease , carbon black , etc

footfootfoot 06-26-2011 11:17 AM

Dawn is pretty intense stuff. It gives me a wicked rash on my hands. Too many years of washing them in Safety Kleen, which despite its name is not all that safe to get on your hands. :(

xoxoxoBruce 06-27-2011 01:01 AM

The new Safety Kleen is safe... it just doesn't work.

Back in the day, when it was trichlorethylene, then trichloroethene, or even the later Chlorothane NU, you could dip a wheel bearing, then lay it in the palm of your hand and blow the crap out on it with 90 lbs of air.
Should kind of watch out for little cuts though, they let the grease get under your skin instead of just the triclor. But hell, since it was being absorbed through your fingernails 50 time faster than through your skin, it doesn't make much difference, does it.

ZenGum 06-27-2011 02:51 AM

Wait a minute. Since when does some working class commie anarchist chick from Manchester wash clothes??? :eyebrow:

Dana, are you selling out? ;)

If I get even a few drops of mineral spirits or turps on my hands at this point my entire arm goes pins and needles for about half an hour.

Cleaned many a freewheel that way.

Griff 06-27-2011 03:05 PM

Hmmm... I've been using WD 40 for that forever... MSDS linked.

All depends what price is being offered :p

DanaC 06-29-2011 07:01 AM

Apparently Dawn dishsoap is pretty much the same thing as Fairy Liquid over here. Both made by Proctor and Gamble.

Funnily enough I have on occasion used Fairy to handwash small items of clothing when I've not had time to go to the laundrette.

Been a while since I did though. Gonna give it a go and see how I get on.

Hey, I think there's a game/reality show in there. With The Rolling Stones.

"Which Stone Is In Your Bum?"

Mick? Keith? Charlie? Ron? Who's in the dark this week?

jimhelm 08-08-2011 11:56 AM

the end of a friendship.

sad, senseless, needlessly painful.

kerosene 08-08-2011 11:58 AM

That sucks, Jim. I am sorry.

jimhelm 08-08-2011 12:22 PM

yeah, thanks... I'm sorry too. for both of us. It was like that scene where the little kid has to get rid of his dog, so he throws rocks and chases it away.... I was the dog. those rocks hurt.

infinite monkey 08-08-2011 12:26 PM

:(

Nirvana 08-08-2011 01:51 PM

Been there, felt that, sorry it happened to you Jim :(

damn. shit. piss. corruption.

Sorry Bro.

jimhelm 08-08-2011 02:36 PM

thanks... it's good to have people to whine to. ow... my feelings....

glatt 08-08-2011 02:43 PM

You're a good guy, Jim. Don't deserve that.

jimhelm 08-08-2011 02:54 PM

are you saying I don't deserve it, or not to deserve it? I'm not sure.... I'm pretty sure I didn't deserve what I got, but then, I am very persuasive and confident. Maybe she felt this was the only way to make sure I would go away. I feel like I should hate her, but I can't. I'm just bummed. my stone is too.

jimhelm 08-08-2011 02:56 PM

I do have a date Friday night though. Gonna go REAL slow with that one. REAL slow.

"Don't deserve it" is sloppy shorthand for "you don't deserve it." But it's really not my place to weigh in on what you deserve and don't deserve. Poor choice of words. I'm sorry you're going through this though.

jimhelm 08-08-2011 03:52 PM

LOL. yeah... somehow, If it happens it happens... and I must deserve it. She got me again. I think the breakup was inevitable, but it seems like she went out of her way to be cruel about the ending. I'm not sure if it's because she wanted to hurt me before I hurt her, or because she wanted to make sure i didn't mess things up with the new guy, or if I did something that made her want to hurt me back.... That's what bothers me. the why of it. I was really nice to her. serious.

classicman 08-08-2011 04:06 PM

Damn dude.... Sorry. I gave up trying to figure women out.

zippyt 08-08-2011 05:03 PM

Well that sucks Jim , Damn !!!

Trilby 08-08-2011 05:24 PM

I'm sorry jim.

Love stinks.
