Well, the BS bucket overflowed again today, but at this point, I'm not willing to cut my nose off to spite my face. Besides, I can have some fun by stirring the pot. What's the worst they can do, FIRE me?

Speaking of BS, I am soooo glad I was in a position to leave the last job. I've talked with several people still there and it's worse than I thought it would ever be. Violations of labor laws (no rest breaks, no meal breaks) and at least one guy ended up using a trash can as a potty since one cannot leave a post there.

And I thought the last contractor was poorly run. They didn't hold a candle. Hopefully this one will end up being fined into bankruptcy but still, glad I'm not there!

Congratulations - another happy graduate from camp w#rk.



2013 is looking like it's going to produce a bumper crop of early retirees.

My congratulations to those who have hit their dates this year, those who have recently added themselves to the list, and those marching off during last quarter of the year.

Alas, as we approach my original date of Nov 1 that milestone day has morphed into OMY (or the better part of OMY - ten months). Looks like I'm now I'll be part of the 2014 crew.
