I hope they won't make you dress up Chuck?

Flies, why in God's name did he make flies? Nobody says, aww, lovely maggot there mate. Becoming Russell Brand.

Clue: god didn't make them. They happened. Just like everything else.

The Indian preacher I saw pretty much sealed my beliefs. I don't suspect that will change, flies or no flies.

In a decade?

Nearly 300K books published per year.

300K x 10= millions of books.

Russell Brand in the top ten? Like him a lot, but he's not even close. Recall please that there were a few Nobel Prize winners in that decade.

Go to Amazon and check out a bit of it. It really is well written.

November is going to be a long month. We had a new guy that was going to start this week, and in 2-3 weeks my schedule would be back to "normal". Well, the hiring process took too long and the guy got a job elsewhere. There was a light at the end of the tunnel, and someone dynamited it.

Another month and a half of no life. I'm thinking of calling us the Zombie Squad. Being one of the living dead sucks.

And here come some more goddamn trucks.

There must be a lot of damaged roofs here in Colorado, because this scale gets swarmed by small roofing contractors in the evening. Many are from out of state, the locals call them Storm Chasers. Half of them don't speak English too well.

And here's another one.

Fuck.

And a few of them are among the most punishingly stupid people on the planet.

Chuck,

What I would do (and have done):

Take every day of sick leave I can, and use that to find another job. The put in your two weeks. You've been on the borderline of mental health at work for how long now? So, basically, you've had to work while not feeling well. Sick time is justified, and a new job is recommended.

And I know I have no idea how that would or would not work for you. But I'm on your side. I've had that shit job before. I don't have that shot job anymore.

I guess I am not entirely clear on what it entails. I thought it was handling trucks entering a trash yard -- but you mention a scale.

I wish I had an answer for the hatred. Been there, done that as recently as a year and a half ago. Felt physically ill every morning knowing something shitty was bound to occur/continue.

Is there any opportunity for a change in your area? I would guess, based on what you post here and elsewhere, you're well over-qualified for the current gig.
All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.
