  1. My office has all but 10 of us working from home, I'm one of the "lucky" 10 that gets to hold down the fort. I've had to carry extra weight at work before, it's nothing new. But for whatever reason, I'm really fucking bothered this time. It seems like they're just taking it for granted. I know it's only been 1 week and there's no way to predict how they'll treat us when this is over, as in "will I be rewarded for standing up and getting shit done?", but I don't have much faith. And what really bothers me is the people in other departments that get to rotate, they can't work remotely so they switch off and that means for 2-3 days a week, they sit on their asses at home doing nothing but getting paid. Others work from home every day but they rely on people in the office to upload the work and that flow is very slow. So much of their time is spent sitting at home in chill mode. Meanwhile, I'm trying to get time-sensitive stuff processed and answer a shit-ton of phone calls. Every day, I get a little more upset about this. I should be able to let it go but it's difficult. I should just do what work I can do, control what I can control and let the rest hang. I just can't shake this anger, I feel an emotional dam trying to burst. Like I just want to yell and cry and punch stuff. Add in the horrible headache I have right now and it's just been a great day. I hope that by writing this out, it makes me feel better. We'll see. Rant over, thanks for having this thread so we can do this sort of thing.

    It finally stopped raining so I was able to install my new bed cover. I went with the Bakflip MX4, I really like it. The installation was a breeze.
  3. I used to work Mon-Thur, 10 hours per day but this shit has me back to 8-5 M-F. It's the first Friday I've worked in years, this blows. 90% of the office is at home, there's only 10 of us left up here. The phone is ringing off the hook with dumbasses asking their dumbass questions "It says 'enter your email address', what do I do???". But what's funny is, I kind of like it. My boss is gone, nobody is here to annoy me (in person). It could be a lot worse, I keep telling myself
  4. Serial dumbass Jon Jones arrested again. I'm so done with this fuck, just go away already. https://www.koat.com/article/mma-fighter-jon-bones-jones-arrested-for-dwi/31942301# ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Mixed Martial Arts fighter Jon “Bones” Jones was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, negligent use of a firearm and possession of an open counter early Thursday morning. According to a criminal complaint, officers responded to the area of 3rd Street and Central Avenue just after 1 a.m. in reference to gunshots fired. When they arrived they found Jones inside his vehicle with the engine on. Jones told police he did not know anything about the shots fired. Officers noticed signs of intoxication and police say Jones admitted to officers that he had been driving earlier and intended to drive now. Police say Jones consented to a sobriety test and performed poorly on it. Police add that when he was given a Breathalyzer he tested at least twice above the legal limit. After Jones was arrested police found a black handgun under the driver’s seat and a half-empty bottle of Recuerdo 750ml behind the passenger seat. Jones was charged with aggravated DWI, negligent use of a firearm and possession of an open container. This is the fighter’s second DWI and he was arrested last year on battery charges.
  5. They should change it so all those links go to besthugecocks.com
  6. That article has a video from Dolly Parton, seeing her get emotional was rough to watch. She's old too and I imagine it's hard to watch your friends pass away, probably gets your mind to thinking about your own mortality.
  7. I was informed on the down low that our office is going to cut the total number of staff to 10, of wich I am one. Errbody else working from home or in a home/work rotation. I wonder if I'll get a medal or something? At least a cool polo shirt, right?
  8. I presented my staff reduction plan to my boss's boss, as my boss is working from home as an "at risk" person. Big boss liked it, my boss loved it, so now I have 2 co-workers working remotely. I'm holding down the fort and doing the things that can't be done online. Maybe I'm a selfless, god loving guy. Or maybe I just wanted to be able to fart in my cube all day without remorse? The world may never know.
  9. I bought a par of Wahl clippers about 10 years ago. #1 all over, about every 10-14 days. I have my wife clean up the back. It's glorious.
  10. Nothing has changed for me, really. I haven't missed work yet and don't plan on it, as my job never bothered to move into the 21st century and prepare for remote working. My wife is working from home next week, my kids are seniors in HS and are out of school until at least April 6th. The only change for me is the grocery stores are picked over and we didn't have any fun stuff to do this weekend because just about every retail establishment is closed.
  11. I was at Academy yesterday and they have it...if you get to the store about 15-20 minutes before they open and hurry to the back when they let you in. Also it was a 3 unit limit and that's NOT per caliber. 3 boxes, period. I went to get a shotgun for the house (been putting it off for years) and got 2 boxes of shells and a box of 9mm for my Glock. Dudes that look like they haven't moved quickly in years were urgently double-timing to the back of the store.
  12. My sister texted me and casually mentioned that her 27 year old daughter has the virus. I asked if she had tested positive, she said no and that she "heard" they won't test young people but she's got the symptoms. I said "great diagnosis, Doc" and changed the subject. The fact that she didn't immediately post about it on facebook leads me to believe it's not true, she's incabable of keeping any of her life details to her self.
  13. I didn't intend to imply that they were, I'm just not going to act at those numbers. I've been checking their website several times a day to see how the numbers are fluctuating. It's bizarre.
  14. My credit union rates went through the roof. From 3.25 for a 30 yesterday to 4.25 today. Fuck that noise.
  15. Are you callin' me a coon-ass???? Not sure if it's better of worse but I'm in OK.
