Why not? You posted it, I'm asking about it.

Nope - both were taking a stand on their beliefs.
Some agree with one and not the other. Two sides of the same coin.

Maybe because THIS IS THE "WHAT'S MAKING YOU HAPPY TODAY" THREAD and your questions aren't making him happy anymore! Try going back and putting some smilies in your posts; or, starting a "What's making you unhappy today" thread for your questions.

Sheesh, some people, he acts like he owns the place or somethin'. :p:

Yeah, some nerve, everybody knows "Bob" Dobbs owns it. :yesnod:

I thought Zanthrax owned it

Three days into a 10 day course of antibiotics and strong steroid ointment, and I am feeling better than I have felt in months.

I got a funny card from a nice lady today. Made my day. Thanks sundae.

I don't really deserve the kindness, but somehow she makes you feel like you do.

Carruthers, could you pm me a mailing address for her? I'm not sure I have a recent one.

I don't really deserve the kindness
Stop it! You do so deserve kindness. Unless you've been killing people and burying them under a patio (hobos excepted) without telling us, I see no reason why you wouldn't deserve kindness and friendship. You're a lovely woman, with a good heart, a wicked sense of humour and a metric fuckton of good stuff to offer the world. I'm glad to call you friend, and I know Sundae is too.

I know it's hard for you to accept - but we like you. You're one of us.

[sinister chanting]One of us!
One of us!

Of course!

It's a bit late here and I'm on my iPad which isn't the most convenient piece of kit.

I'll fire up the PC and send the info first thing in the morning. :thumb:

On Wednesday I wrote the last 2 checks in my checkbook.
On Thursday I open the safe and guess what, no more checks... dumbass mumble mumble.
Thursday afternoon I ordered checks online, opting for 4 day UPS delivery because of this 3 day weekend.
Saturday I get an email from Deluxe saying my checks had been shipped and expect delivery on Thursday the 2nd.
But when I clicked on the UPS link to verify the date, it said delivered on Friday... yesterday.
That's crazy impossible, but sure enough, they were in the front door.
God, I love UPS. :heartpump

Nothing like my FexEx experience last week, which sure the fuck can't go in this thread. :mad:

I've been offered a job, subject to pre-employment checks. I'm looking forward to it though it's something of a sidestep as far as career goes - not into academia, but into another customer service role. I am also a tad nervous about how I'll cope with the hours - it's 35 hours a week, but it's a shift rotation between 8am and 8pm. On the other hand, it's a half hour journey to work rather than 2 to 2.5 hours! So I'll be exchanging the 12-14 hours a week I currently travel for my part-time job, for 5 hours a week for the full time job. So, in truth I'm only adding about 10-12 hours a week out of my house.

It looks like it might at times be quite hectic and stressed. It also looks like it might at times be fun and rewarding. I'll be working as a claims handler for an insurance company.

Assuming all the pre-employment checks go ok, I have a 1st August start date. First four weeks are training. I gave my notice at my current job yesterday. Bit sad, but also quite excited.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 10:15 AM.
