Today is Wednesday. I’ve been going to work daily. Still getting cramps (gas?).
I am eating steamed rice flavored with a bit of chicken broth and jello.
Shaving is good. Tabac is great.
Life is good.

Get well soon!
Rings so true.

I took Thermo with a couple students who had NO business in the class and a professor who didn't trust his English. Consequently he'd start every class with an introduction to the problem, typically including some theory or formula that the entire class should know like the back of their hand at this point... and one of these students would inundate him asking him to explain something that is literally like "2+2=4" at this point... and he'd assume it's his English to blame (because no one who doesn't understand the concept he had introduced should EVER have been in that class) so he'd spend 45minutes of a 50minute class explaining that 2+2=4... then do 50min worth of work on the board in the last 5 minutes so he did not fall behind.


I literally remember him spending TWO FULL CLASSES explaining why bouyancy force involved gravity because this kid insisted that it shouldn't.

There were other students who I thought might KILL those kids.

I would not have been able to cope with that.
I just ripped a co-worker a new one last week for being worthless and lazy. Told him he could screw off anytime he wants with other officers but not with me. That I get paid to do my job not yours and mine.

the BRAT diet? Although, this might be a good place for an Oxford comma.

Dang!
It’s been a while.
Still shaving.
I haven’t worked overtime since November 7th.
That has never happened before in my 34 years. And this has been by choice.
WOW!!!!
I have been swapping my evening shifts with the guys who like working them. I have been pretty much all 8-4’s.
I am still working a Sunday here and there because of the Sunday pay and because it’s slow.
I am really liking this.
When I get home tonight I will shave.

I cannot believe it’s been 34 years. Dang!
I am almost ready to retire.
I think my body will tell me when.
I told my wife that 1 day I am going to wake up and decide that I’m not gonna work anymore and that will be it.
No advance notice.
Nada
Just call in sick, use up all of my sick leave since they won’t pay me for it, and then turn in my retirement papers.

I pulled the plug on the working life near the end of September. No complaints from me so far. :badger:
My retirement date is the end of January. Been planning it for a year. Promoted my replacement and have been mentoring/training him.

I personally selected each person on the team of managers who report to me and want to make sure they are in good hands when I leave.

I wish that was an option for me. I have about a year's worth, but as soon as I use five days in a row without a Dr. note they start discipline. After ten sick days it's a 3 day suspension without pay, then 10, 20, three months, and termination. For me the problem is each suspension without pay moves my retirement date back at least a month. Three months would move it back three months. They will pay me up to 15k before taxes for unused sick time, which is about a quarter of what I have earned, but there is constantly talk of doing away with that benefit.

I'm not lying when I say that aside from my health I don't know ANYONE more blessed than me. Your job is....well, not nice, I guess.

There is a reason I'm retiring at 50 as soon as I reach 25 years service and paying a 12% penalty on my pension to do it. But then again not many places have pensions any more. So it's not all bad, but mostly. They've dramatically reduced pension benefits over the last ten to fifteen years with some grandfathering measures, while increasing employee contributions. For me the good thing is I'm still young and healthy enough to work full-time and that pension will provide an extra 20K coming in for nothing. Hopefully, I'll enjoy the next job.

Yeah, pensions do seem to be dinosaurs.

I wish more companies tried to invest in casinos like Jimmy Hoffa did, ha! They'd be fully funded, if Michigan casinos are any indication! Lol, lot's of pensioners give their money right back at the first of the month!
