Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Hi there, I want to wish everyone a happy holiday. May all of your wishes and dreams come true.
It's 5 pm on X-mas day. I had my X-mas dinner a few hours ago. It was some French Bread pizza, and a bottle of Mt. Dew. I was kinda hoping to get to go home for X-mas, but of course, I can't afford to, plus I have to work. Most of the roomies are gone, so I get to spend the holiday alone. Just me and my puter.
I'm gonna go cook some more pizza, and then nap before work.
Have a good holiday, and I'll catch ya on the flipside.

It snowed here. We got about 7 inches or so. WooFuckingHoo. Don't get me wrong, I like snow, I just can't stand the assholes, who don't know how to drive in it. We live in Michigan people, it snows here, get used to it. We aren't in Texas or Florida, where snow is odd. I remember a few years ago, North Carolina got 2 inches of snow, and the whole state was basically shut down. This is Michigan it snows every year here. Deal with it.
I love people, who have 4x4 SUV's who think that they are invincible, because of it being 4x4. Guess what, you're wrong. The snow fell over night on Wednesday. On my way to work on Thursday morning, I saw 5, 4x4's in the ditch. Way to go Fuck-o ! Good job. Then there is me, I have a 2WD pickup truck, with no weight in the back, and guess what, I got to work, without any problems.
Then there is the city. They knew the snow was coming. Everyone knew it was coming, since Monday. Guess what, the roads were shitty. They finally plowed my street, today. Nice job guys. I need to get a city job driving a plow truck, where I can get paid $25/hour, to drive around and do nothing. On Thursday morning, on my way to work, I saw about 5 plow/salt trucks, just driving. No plowing or anything. What a job, get paid lots of money, to do nothing.
I'm going to buy a 4x4 truck, and get a plow package, and start my own snow removal company. I could do a better job of plowing, with a pair of roller blades and a shovel, then these morons did with a 5-ton dump truck. Unlike these other companies, I'll only take on what business I can handle. These places take on multiple accounts, and don't have the fleet or crew to handle it, so they do half-ass jobs at each location. Not only that, but they do things in the wrong order.
The company that plows at my night job, has about 150 other lots that they plow. One of them is on the other side of town, and that place is closed during the night. I think it would make more sense, to plow the places that are open first, then hit the ones that are closed. I could be wrong though. I mean, why clean a lot, where there will be customers first, when you can go clean an empty lot first.
We were one of the last places plowed on Thursday. That helped business, thanks guys. The jewelry store on the other side of town, was cleaned, and they weren't even open on Thursday. Good business sense guys, I think they just hate doing our lot, so they put it off until last. I guess they are trying to lose us as an account, who knows.
Ok, enough bitching.
I need sleep.
