    Sometimes bad luck is averaged out over a few weeks day by day and sometimes its a avalanche of suffering as it all hits on the same day.

    Rough. Like my son says, optimistically, when things don't go his way "maybe next time". I hope you get a week of nice and easy jobs.

    You should had a V8 OMG !!!!!
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    25 years ago we had Bob Hope , Steve Jobs , and Johnny Cash today we have no Hope no Jobs and no Cash !
    I can fix broke but i can't fix stupid !
