Enjoying life while I can! Tongue

Moving and reorganizing a bunch of stuff within the house to make room for another. Confused

What's up with you?

I know it's been a few months since this last post. How's everything going with the baby today?

@Guardian I'm doing ok, dealing with an unexpected issue with the jeep, trying to get my a+ so I can get a job that pays more... I keep getting offers too but I can't take them rn because most are short term.

How's things with your offspring?

Everything helps. Have to weight the short-term gained benefit over your current gig. Always hard to weight the short-term knowns with the longer-term unknowns.

Kids great. He's huge! Besides being tired its alright. The biggest challenge is dealing with the 3-year old who is having a hard time coming to terms with the fact theat she's not the only baby anymore. Tongue

@Guardian as the eldest sibling I kinda get it but my sister and I are About a year apart so it's not meant as much as it probably does to them.

I have been on the receiving end of that behavior though...
It's tough being the successful kid from a family who raised two generations.

Yeah, I'm the oldest of my siblings by 3 1/2 and 10 years respectively. Tongue I don't remember anything from the first one, so I guess that should end fine.

How's everyone been?

I'm starting to get prepped for a cross-country move (early stages). With that, work, family, etc. life has been pretty hectic.

got a job interview later this week which pays $21 an hour to start so looking forward to that.

had to get my jeep out of the tow yard yesterday because some a** got it towed when I was visiting a friend, the tow company were complete jerks and wouldn't even let me get it right away giving excuses and junk instead of just letting me get my car back and paying whatever fee.

and I lost my wallet last week so I've been trying to get that sorted as well....

at least I have evil genius 2 to look forward to.

@tc4me pretty much yeah

@brian51 definitely.

here's what really annoyed me about monday though...

the tow company wouldn't accept my debit card, cash only (no idea why?)

and the nearest ATM, was 2 miles.

I'd ubered down there and had my sister with me because my wallet was lost previously...

2 miles is kinda ridiculous yeah?

Ok, that means for me: in the USA the towing companies are just as stupid as here :-)

Good stuff Spook! Good luck!

tc4me: Tow companies are sharks here. Mostly unethical practices to make a buck.

Funny thing is, the tow was legitimate, it was just that the company were a** about it. Their cameras only point towards the lot and it's right next to an airport...

If I really wanted payback I could rig up some drones to drop eggs and paint on their back lot to make towing my Jeep a net loss. Doubly so because all they'd see is darkness from it being at night and then the thunk of things hitting the ground lol.

Perks of being a mad scientist and engineer type lol.

So... My boss raised my pay by $2.26 an hour yesterday.

Only thing I asked last month was if there were any positions in the contracting agency that would make better use of my skills now that I have my a+ cert.

Hopefully contributing to the technical documentation directly is enough, gods know it's old and has more gaps than swiss cheese.
