Happy cold & rainy Thursday. We are back up from arctic temperatures, and return to just miserable fall weather.
Because God forbid they spent it on a raise or two.
It's a machine though, and costs way more than a press pot. I think most Americans have percolator coffee pots, while Keurig pods are a trending. I don't consider the press pot fancy, and it's certainly the cheapest. I think it makes the best tasting coffee because no filters are used.And espresso is put coffee in tamper, draw water, drink. Press pots are viewed as relatively posh over here, especially after dinner. Instant gets you taken out the back and introduced to the rubber hose. Or it should do.
Playing on the forklift was fun at the grocery store. We had one that you had to stand on. They didn't let us 18 year old untrained idiots use it often, but we still managed to as often as possible. Pallet jack races in the stock room were the best, until someone wrecked and caused some major damage.And my day just keeps getting better. Helped the guys in the warehouse move 4 large crates (8' tall x 5' wide x 6' long) into a semi truck. I moved the first one in heading straight to the front of the trailer (putting as much weight on the drive wheels as possible). Well, the driver said, "In the middle." Ok, so I got to the middle of the trailer and dropped the crate. He said, "NO! In the middle all the way forward! Man, you are a bad driver, don't know what you are doing." I looked at him and said, "Dude, you really wanna ago there? You said "In the middle." you did not specify what middle you were referring to." I wasn't mad at all, just thought it was funny. That made my afternoon. I needed a good laugh. I'm still getting a chuckle over it.
I didn't know that about Elsa, but I'm willing to warm them up for her. That would be the honorable thing to do.Morning O Captains, My Captains. Still colder than Elsa's nips over here.
I did the boss thing for about 5 years. I enjoyed it, but the pay didn't justify the extra work and stress as the boss. I would be willing to try it again with the right circumstances, but doubt I'll have the opportunity.This is true. You feel a lot of pressure when you're held responsible for a group of people. It's sometimes counter-intuitive to give your people trust and the ability to make decisions, knowing that ultimately you will be held accountable for their actions. But that's what they want! And if they have experience and knowledge, why wouldn't you give that freedom? Most of the time your people know more than you do.
That stinks. Everything hurts when your back is out. I tried to save my muscle relaxers as they sure helped.Morning gents.
Trying to take it easy today a bit since I threw my back out yesterday. Not as bad as I've done it before, but the morning was very rough.
Always a joy to have to pee and you can't walk...
