More than happy to oblige! All complaints will find their way somewhere and be considered by someone in an appropriate amount of time.

Too many badgers and kobolds, especially when they use the tree as a fire hydrant.

Dear local bands: if you want me to tell all my friends about you and shill for you on Facebook, have some media for me to listen to. I'm not going to promote a band that I can't hear. "We're gonna have some songs soon, and they're gonna be good, I pinky-promise," isn't going to cut it, guys.

I'm hoping that this week goes smoothly. Spring Break the week after. Sadly no Daytona for me. I don't even know if that is still a destination.

So, that's the new, heat-proof snow? The kind that can stay un-melted in 79 degF?

hi everyone


a foreigners question to the 2-3-4 jobs disscussion from a few days ago:

can you just start a second job in America if you want to?
In Germany you need the permission of your main employer and you need to prove to him, that your second job will not interfer with your main job, otherwise you can't get a taxation cord for a second job from first employer and tus can not work a second job

Shadow Lodge

Yeah there's nothing like that here.

No permission needed. Second jobs are pretty common (especially in economically-depressed areas like where I live). I'm currently working at a full-time job, running a small business on the side, and also working at an unpaid internship on certain weekends. One of my coworkers puts in 90 hours per week between three jobs.

I seem to be doing well, thank you for asking.

Reasonably well, at least.
An open bottle of decent wine, a new book, and not worrying about work till monday makes today a good day.

Coworker quote of the week:

The youngest guy on our crew is an excitable 19-year-old college student named Dylan* who works for the company on his breaks from school. He's been on break for the past week, and has been working on the site with us. Finally, with just a couple of days left before school started back up, he moped into the break room one morning and dropped a bombshell:

"I've got a confession, guys. My name's not Dylan. It's Gary. I started going by "Dylan" to make me sound cooler, 'cause "Gary" is, like, an old guy name."

*as always, names changed for anonymity


Coworker quote of the week from a few months ago:

One of the things that still needs to be done is installing all of the parking lot lights. In order for the parking lot lights to be installed, the sidewalks need to be poured, which needs to be done when the ground isn't frozen. Back in November, the construction crew got behind schedule, missed their deadline, and were unable to pour the sidewalks.

Around this time, there were a rash of odd burglaries around the site (I think they were trying to build a spaceship, a la Wilford Brimley in The Thing), and the GC called a meeting to discuss. Near the end of the meeting, they asked us when the parking lot lights were going to get done. To this, one of my coworkers replied:

"I have no idea, but I did notice that we had another burglary last night."

"What are you talking about?" asked the GC.

"Yeah, someone stole all our f#!*ing sidewalks!" replied my coworker.


I hate my job, but I like the guys on my work crew. They're some of the most sarcastic sons of b+!!!es I've ever met.

from what I have heard, there were once laws similar to that in new york, but they have long since fallen by the way side. Unless you have a contract that states otherwise you can have as many jobs as you want.

Thanks! It's been very nice to have some of the old crew come and stop by. I missed the friendly drama-free interaction we used to enjoy in FAWTL once upon a time.

I enjoy BSing with my virtual buds. It also encourages me to stop by Paizo more often, which also helps me inject a bit of energy into my PbPs.

Yeah my main job isn't too happy with me getting a second job. But, since they won't give me enough shifts to pay my bills, it's really their fault. I'm not going to sit around and hope someone calls in sick. If I decide school bus driving is a better fit I might relegate the security job to a shift a week status. Per diem is a two-edged sword. Don't expect loyalty if you don't give any.
