Teh Squeaky Wheel
If that’s the only bad habit that dog picks up from a cat, then he can still be a good dog.
Good morning, GN. Wishing everyone an OK day.
I concur with your assessment of teh thread puppeh. Hope your ophthalmologist visit yesterday yields some improvement(s).
Brenda update: Yesterday was “not so good”; today’s “okay” thus far (for which I’m appreciative).
No further news re HH-A HOA’s latest stalling tactic. Very frustrating.
A “Whoa Black Betty” three-fer:
Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Fatwa!
Sven -- I hope the new eye drops and duct plugs give you some relief.
Fatwa -- I’m glad Brenda is doing better today.
Our new Director of Special Education -- formerly the cow-worker I spent all year helping her do and learn her job -- is being passive-aggressive now that she is responsible for things she knows nothing about. I need to draft a reply to her latest email that doesn’t get me in trouble with the higher ups.
Wow. So the old “No good deed goes unpunished” still holds. That one is strong.
But it mostly holds with people who didn’t deserve the good deed.
I had to refuse up front to be involved in a few people when the Company president or the owner protected them. No responsibility without authority. I was lucky in being able to do that, but the alternative was me leaving and I had established my value by then. They always ended up regretting it, sometimes apologizing and asking me to take over. I always took responsibility for my people, no excuses, but I insisted on being in charge of them. I guess that would mean I could never work with a union or government agency. It cost me a lot during my career but I had learned I could not work outside my limits.I tried to be up front when applying for jobs but it did shut many doors.
I wish you had a supervisor worthy of you, Paddy. So few show your ethics and integrity.
Several times today I’ve hit a “can’t find this server” message when clicking here -- refreshing several times makes it appear, but thought I’d mention it cuz I’m a giver.
Thank you. Maybe one of the wizards can do something. I are lamer.
Paddy, last night I was reading your mailbox post to Elena, and my response. She tried to give me a “look” but could not keep a straight face, it was just too true so she owned it.
I usually open the roll up garage door a few inches to get ventilation with the open back door, especially when she parks her hot car in there. She asked me to close it today so the “dust from the street” does not get in the garage. I gave her a look and she just said “I’m like the teacher’s wife”.
I can picture her saying that to you.
The Gerbil Nation is very much part of our daily life and often our conversations.
