Having been in several car accidents before, I feel your pain.

Is there decent mass transit where you live?

Can you use it to get back and forth to the places you need to get to?

Is carpooling with your co-workers an option?

What on earth happened to your car? When did it happen? Are you ok?

I was very lucky and I am ok. I was going to work and got rear ended. I will repost my post later.

The bus system is ok.

I am on the night shift and sometimes have to use my car to get around.

No one else works my shift.

The wife also needs a car due to her doing traveling.


Can you sell the totaled car to a scrapyard for use as spare parts? If you can, use the money from that sale towards the purchase of a used car.

Got an unexpected meeting with my boss and HR at one of my jobs tomorrow morning. I'm not very happy about this. Unplanned meetings with no warning and no explanation are never good.


Ugh, I hope it's good, Patrick.

Just to let everyone here know, I'm going to take a semi-vacation away from the boards for a while. I'm feeling mentally tired and worn out. I've got some programming projects that have been on hold, some for several years, that need to be worked on. But, I'll drop by on Mondays, during my eleven hour shift at work, to say hi.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Take your break John, you need to take care of you. Stop by when you feel like it. The Treefort's always open


Thanks, Patrick. Right now, working hard to stay awake at work.


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I know that issue as well. I'll be fighting that tonight


I could also catch up on all the anime I haven't watched yet.

Yeah ... those tend not to be the good sort of meeting for the most part. I hope it's something better than you think.


Rest up john.

Hey, Treppa. How're you doing?

Fine. Enjoy your break. It's good to take those occasionally. I skip the world news for weeks at a time.

Hey, it's night. Why is the sky glowing?

I may have missed something...


Thanks, Treppa.


I have nothing to say here, I'm only posting so that I can read new comments easier...

Anyone have any Kickstarter money to throw at this project?

~grumbles~ The car has been declared totaled by the insurance company. Now to work on getting a replacement title and the cash, then finding another car.

P.S. - Make sure you know where all your important paperwork is and don't be like me.

It seems pretty standard these days to "total" the car once the damage passes a specific threshold. Most cars are designed to crumple in certain ways, in order to deflect as much of the kinetic energy away from the passengers as possible. So, beyond the threshold (which probably varies with each vehicle), it's just easier to scrap it.

By which you mean easier for the INSURANCE COMPANY of course. ;P

Glad your OK Zombie. Good luck finding a new car! :)

Chin up Monkey man!

While I agree that sort of call never sounds good, (Every time my current boss deigns to contact me, I feel like I'm being pulled into the principal's office and in trouble) ;P

But, The last time I actually got that boss/HR call, (20 years ago, when I lived in New Orleans) my boss had finally realized that I had been a temp for over a year, working 40+ hours a week. She finally asked 'WHY are we paying the temp agency all that money instead of putting him on payroll?'

So, Happy Thoughts and prayers and vibes going your way! :)

FIFY. And nope. :(


So I was looking at the job description for a local IT Manager position that looked right up my alley. A little lowball on salary, but not bad for managing a small group. Then I ran up against this: "Must be able to stand and walk 10-12 hours each day."

??????

I feel your pain, my old car went out a while back as the transmission was baking it's own oil all over itself, causing irreparable damage. at that point it was either replace the transmission, ($1000+) or just get a new car, (also $1000+ :P) At some point, it's just easier to get a new car, but at least your getting reimbursed for the damages.


I love white chocolate truffles.

It is in there for a reason. Maybe that last manager was not fit enough to get around. Maybe they make the manager a "gofer" job. It may be a crazy reason, but there is a story behind it.

I actually played "Yakkity Sax" during a combat scene in my game once. The guys loved it. I also played the theme from the old tv show "S.W.A.T." and they called it their theme song after that.

Yes, My first ever stage combat class that I taught to non-adults, (high school aged kids) We did our final performance as "The Three Stooges Vs The Marx Brothers". A combination of Hand to hand, double-sticks, quarterstaves, and single sword fights, all done to Yakkity Sax. :)


That would've been amazing.. lol

The early episodes are a little rough, but I highly recommend everyone giving this a listen. It's about 150 hours long, which I powered through in about three weeks while I was out doing electrical work.
