    Its finaly over. little background information: I'm a compuyter geek for a living, with `jack of all trades, master of none' skills in almost anything. our company is moving to a new building in the ghettos of south phoenix, and my job as Net admin was to set up a new network at the new building. I've been loaning my 73 K20 to my brother until he could get a new car in March.... he's still using the damn thing, and hasn't been taking any care of it at all. he will no longer be driving it after next monday. here's the play by play, some parts omitted, to keep this rated PG.

    0500... .alarm goes off
    0502... fumble for snooze button, hit something else.
    0600... Time for work
    0640... kina wake up.
    0700... wake up, put on clothes, find breakfast
    0710... leave for work.
    0750... arrive late, recieve beratting for tardyness.
    0830... boss comes and tells me to do saome crap janitor work...
    0845... boss tells me to do some other crap janitor work....
    0930... boss tells me to do some other crap janitor work.... (ps, I'm a net admin, not a janitor)
    1000... roach coach.
    1015... boss tells me I'm on crap janitor work until we move.
    1030.. VP verifies this, even tho I'm supposed to be learning how to use the new OS they're converting our company over to (against our departments reccomendations()
    1130... VP yells at me about how I should be wasting my saturdays learning about the new OS, instead of learnign about it on the clock.
    1135... I put fist into side of truck, instead of into VP.
    1400... more crap janitor work.
    1540... leave for old building, start work over there.
    1630... leave work,
    1800... arrive home from crap traffic.
    1830... begin working on grey truck to fix exhaust hangers( loaned to brother)
    1835... discover its 4 quarts low on oil ( yes 4 quarts)
    1840... discover broken turn signal switch.
    1845... discover transmission problems.
    1900... change oil (1200 miles overdue)
    1930... dump oil at autozone.
    1945... run out of fuel, roll into second most espensive gas station ever.
    2000... leave gas station, after spilling most of the fuel (air siphon gas hoses suck)
    2030... visit parents,
    2045... leave parents house.
    2110... get rear ended.
    2115... other driver admits fault, and I leave it at that.
    2120.... learn freeway is closed.
    2130... call friend nate, learn that Muffler bearings are a reality...
    2200... get home, begin drinking.
    0015... cable modem dies...

    I'm no longer angry, pissed, unhappy, mad, or anything... just depressed. today sucked ass, and tomorrow isn't looking much better... the only positive thing I can think of is, I've consumed what little alcohol I have around here, so I won't be doing that tomorrow night again (2 whole mikes hard lemonade..) I'm supposed to get up tomorrow/tonite at 5 AM, to be at work by 6 AM... a proposition I am not looking forward to.

    on a ligher note, muffler bearings are a reality now... the old exhaust pipe `donut' that connects the stock manifold to the stock pipes, has been replaced by a Bearing, to allow the exhaust system to move freely of the engine. before much longer, they're going to have hydraulic turnsignas, meaning blinkerfluid will need to be topped off... .

    There's no money to collect from my accident: they nailed my drop hitch, and punched a good sized hole in their car. they couldn't damadge that hitch, if they'd hit it at 60, nor could they have delt any damadge to my truck.... if I'd been in the yellow one, then they would have proably done some minor damadge to my bumper, and possibly crushed up the body...

    oh well, off to work where I'll be stuck dealing with whatever falls my way.

    The V.P. actually told you that you should use your own personal Saturday to learn something that the company is installing. I would of told him one of two things.

    1. Work Saturday?!? Sure and you will be receiving my bill at the end of the month for overtime.

    2. Go pound sand buddy. I work to live; not live to work.

    Your right about that Eagle. Noone should have to work on a day they dont get paid for.
    If thats the case they better give you a raise for knowing a job even better without them having to train you.

    Falling down was a cool flick... I might have to go watch that again or sompin'... Fun Fact: did you know Iron Maiden made a song after it? the name of the song is `Man on the edge'. Lyrics are as follows...
    <blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr>


    The freeway is jammed
    and it's backed up for miles
    The car is an oven and baking is wild
    Nothing is ever the way it should be
    What we deserve we just don't get you see

    A briefcase, a lunch and a man on the edge
    Each step gets closer to losing his head
    Is someone in heaven are they looking down
    Cause nothing is fair just you look around

    Falling down
    Falling down
    Falling down

    He's sick of waiting of lying like this
    There's a hole in the sky for the angels to piss
    Branded a leper because you don't fit
    In the land of the free
    you can live by your wits

    Once he built missiles a nation's defence
    Now he can't even give birthday presents
    Accross the city he leaves in his wake
    A glimpse of the future a cannibal state

    Falling down
    Falling down
    Falling down

    <hr></blockquote>

    favorite line ever comes out of the middle of that... `there's a hole in the sky for the angels to piss'

    Falling Down is the one you are thinking of. Fallen with Denzel was about a spirit that moved from person to person.

    Can't be a true California resident. He would've fallen out of the truck holding his neck and been much the richer later..........well unless the rear ender was driving a pick up full of lawnmowers, rakes, grass clippings, and 4 guys with good tans who beat feet.........

    This is what happens when newbies sign on and try to 'catch up'.... Looking at shiat from 3 YEARS ago, and bringing it back like it was yesterday's events. :rolleyes:


    I'm pretty sure Ddragggon doesn't even remember this day - if he even still uses the 'board.







    LET 'EM DIE..... LET 'EM FADE AWAY LIKE THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO!!
