Dont you just get tired of BS?


I hate people who think they’re better than everyone else. That they know more, or better. That they know better than YOU and should therefore decide what IS BEST FOR YOU.

Hobby politics are bad. They are stupid bad and if you throw money into the mix, well people will do the most dishonorable shit. They will stab their best friend in the back, throw their mom under the bus. Its sad, and disgusting too.

Another week almost gone.


Well, where are we?

I still need to mow my lawn. It’s been raining and even though I tried to get up early this AM, it was too wet w/ dew to mow. I guess I will have to wait until Monday and do it then. Supposed to be nice until then.

On The Landlord (ex) Front

As I predicted, he is trying to keep the deposit. First it was “Well, you broke your lease.” When I asked his assistant “How?” she said, we didn’t stay long enough… I pointed out that we moved in in Nov. 2008 and it was a 2 year lease. “Hmmm”, says she, “you’re right. I’ll have to ask him.” Now the new bullshit lie “reason” I can’t have my deposit back is that the lease went to a year’s lease after we stayed past the 2 year mark?! I am gonna dig the lease out and look, but if so, how disingenuous. You would basically have to move out on the anniversary of your move in. I wonder if that’s even legal? IF he does manage to screw me, well, I WILL review it all, naming names and everything that happened w/ him and while there on the ‘Net. Perhaps that sounds dumb, but I know people check them out and a realtor w/ bad reviews is not good. I have acted in good faith through this. I even cleaned the house really good — which I WOULD NOT HAVE BOTHERED WITH if I knew he was really going to try and stiff me like this. Someone I know in the Real Estate biz told me about a good lawyer to check with. I don’t like bullies. Again, I have dealt w/ this in good faith. This guy even told his assistant that the house “Looked pretty good.” Marvy. Gimme ma money.

 On the work front

Had a guy go take his drug test today. Talked to another, but he needs his DOT Physical… can’t even interview him until then. Came home to find 2 more prospects — will call them tomorrow! 🙂 I need, really, at least 1½ drivers. One full time and a part=time fill-in guy. AND, I need a guy who will run every Saturday night, as my one driver says he will run every layover if he can be off Sat night so that he may attend the Temple of Jesús… Weez is a beez tryin’. The letter write thing is still there. Everyone is pissed because now they can’t get days off because one driver got fired over it. Well, not fired, he was part time, not allowed to use him, is a better term. Sad. Getting ready to ramp up for X-Mas Rush 😮 I detest Christmas in the P.O. — just makes you nasty. You would too if you were there.

‘Nuff said tonite. Ende

I was just reading through the blog (for typos I need to work on) and saw that I have mentioned “The SHITHEADS” a lot. I will try not to anymore as I won’t see them again. Sorry for that!! Onward!

Free the House!


Well, last night it finally happened. I was able to get out of the old place. Now don’t get me wrong. I loved a lot of that house. It was open and neat, weird angles, light, etc. But… it had NO storage. Nada. The dryer vent had a run of over 25′ and my neighbor had a bird get in there and die — their house reeked of rotting dead bird for weeks. That was just sloppy design! The back bedrooms had NO ventilation. In the summer you ROASTED in there — I think, they felt they were for kids and “who cares?” or something. I bought a window A/C unit this summer — made it bearable.

I watched them put up a whole lot of these townhouses and for the most part, they just threw them up. The newer ones have all the neat stuff stripped out. I think the first few sets (like ours was) were done back before the housing crash and they added some neat stuff, wood floors, nice tile work, neat angles, kitchens, etc. but this was all offset by shitty workers. I say this because this winter, I took a number of handfuls of tile, wood, construction debris out of the master bath floor vent. How did it get there? Lazy and sloppy workers… Wasn’t the only thing. One neighbor’s toilet froze solid. One place had mice already when they moved in. Another (the ones w/ the dead bird) had a leaky master bath shower… the ceiling in the foyer was all rotted out. Neato huh? There’s more, but not now. Not worth my time to type it…

Still, it was a good house and we might have bought it except for a couple of things 1. the landlord wanted like $30.k more than it was worth and worse, our neighbors (whom I have chronicled before and call (like all on that block) “The SHITHEADS”). These people are from Philly. They live for drama. Really. Just nasty and rude. They smoke like chimneys all day and the smoke would usually waft over to our porch — nasty! Sure love being gassed out by this nasty crap and it made it so my wife couldn’t go outside there. No, I will not miss “Dick” and “Lina” — no, not at all. My dog has more common sense in the tip of his penis than these two do in their entire beings. I despise people like this. Whatever, like my mother-in-law says “Don’t look back.” I am not. I will miss my tree — the only ones not dead on the whole block because, GASP!, we water and fed them. Something the hillbillies could not understand “Whut, ya mean ya WATER yer grass and that tree???!?” Anyway, this is my “closure.” 🙂

I am finally calming down… not having to feel guilty because I’m not over there packing and cleaning before the looming deadline. Well, it’s done and I’m out. Wanna bet the landlord will try and stiff us out of our deposit? I am told he doesn’t like to return them. We’ll see. I am not perfect, but that place was okay. Anyway got home tonight, took the Wifial-Unit to Wally World, then came home and took stuff out of bedroom one and unpacked, rearranged, etc. From full to door to pretty empty room. Then hung some stuff in my room/office. Looks strangely the same, yet different because I hung much of the stuff in the same relative areas. Works for me.

Messed w/ Mac side of computer… imported all my iTunes crap — that works better for me here in PC world. Must be because that’s where I started it. Got it all back going. 🙂 Even got my music that I d/l-ed on my old laptop to re-download. Awesome! This computer is a joy to work on… music, FAST, fun again. AND… the damned Internet actually works here. At the old place, I never hardly had more than a dial-up speed, yet paid Embarq/Century Link for DSL… I think it was the phone lines in the town house there — they never all worked. Hell, that worked better at our old place in Ft. Loudon and that was built in the early 50’s I think. Anyway, core I5… 8gb ram, Win 7 pro, Mac Snow Leopard, etc. Setup for dual monitors. Yay!!!!

Anyway, time for bed. Late on my Friday night. Too much going on at work for tonight…
