Keith is slacking....

I guess that is ok, since it is Labor Day. Am I the only sucker working today?

Some stuff happened over the weekend in sports. Chances are some of it was good. I did not pay attention to any of it. Sorry.

I am having a rough couple of days. NS. Questioning a lot of things in my life. I have some hard decisions to make involving all of it. Let the minivan and gfH is pregnant jokes ensue. But seriously, H is not in a good place, people.

Enough of that crap. No one is gonna comment on this today anyways. Happy Labor Day you slackers.

cmkod beat you up?

Pass the Lysol said...

cmkod was in excruciating pain, she said worse than labor, for like 6 straight hours before she got the pain meds.

Aitch said...

eek. What caused that man?

Aitch said...

Boo hoo. Did he honestly think he had a shot?

Aitch said...

Poor Zeke

Fighting wounds

Mize said...

I should NOT have alcohol today

Mize said...

But I have the shakes.

Mize said...

This is a dilemma.

Mize said...

Yeee-haw!

Aitch said...

Drink

Mize said...

Mize said...

And I'm starting to get pretty geeked for Austin

Femh has the best advise*,"stop bitching and do something about it"

NS

Aitch said...

Bite me Keef.

tem said...

Is H still in relationship woeland?

tem said...

Whenever you find a girl where something goes wrong and you can just let it go then you've found the one.

Mize said...

And tem drops a gem

Mize said...

That should be a new feature. Tem's Gems.

Aitch said...

I wanna pick up the new madden this week

Keef said...

Bite me Keef.


I hope you're not one of those people that can't take real talk and just wants to hear people say "don't worry, everything is gonna be ok"

No sarcasm

Keef said...

That's no bullshit asshole talk, either. If I'm going through a woe stage, I get out of it much faster when cmk says get over it

Aitch said...

no i am not. NS.

Aitch said...

I'm just frustrated, dude. My jpb sucks and everyone say well do something about it. Yet there aren't really any jobs out there. So people say go back to school. Well I work 70-80 hours a week to barely get by, so how am I supposed to fit class into that schedule? So yea, I feel like I am stuck in a rut.

Aitch said...

and for the record, gfH is an even bigger pessimist than I am, so her telling me to suck it up is kind of ironic.

Keef said...

Online classes, bud. Seriously. Even if it's only 1 or 2 at a time, it's getting you somewhere.

Keef said...

Brett Lawrie with a go home run

How often are you actively looking for open jobs? I don't know exactly what you make in salary, but I would imagine that there are other service industry related jobs available that would pay similarly with better hours

The reality is that you are an articulate straight white male, I don't approve it or think it's fair, but as such, you have a big edge going in when it comes to obtaining higher end jobs in the service industry (also you would have an edge with that in most administrative assistant positions, many of those pay well)

The fact is, you feel like you can't change what you're doing because you are just getting by. What I think you may be missing is that your current pace is unsustainable. You think you can't change, but the reality is that you have no choice but to change.

Without going back for additional education or switching to a career with better growth/promotion opportunities, you will be stuck in this lifestyle until you burn out, have a nervous breakdown or a heart attack at 40.

So....seems to me you have two options. One, if you have to work 70-80 hour weeks to just get by, consider scaling back on expenses wherever you can. If you have already done this as much as possible, you either have to cram school on top of what you are already doing or find a different job and possibly move to a different city where cost of living is lower and you can afford to do school and work.

Economy isn't getting better anytime soon and one of the hardest hit groups are young adults with high school diplomas or GEDs only.

Keef said...

I agree with kod. It's pretty much based on how motivated you are to do something about it, h.

Good to see Marty Fish making a run at the US Open.

Makes me chuckle, if he was a little less talented we probably would have played on the same HS team.

Keef said...

Ahik*

Mize said...

I know exactly what H is saying. It sucks, man.

Keef said...

Not saying it's easy

Aitch said...

Just found out my old man wrote me out of his will. That's fun.

El Padrino said...

bunch of whiny birches

Keef said...

Bunch?

Keef said...

Stop being a whiny birch, h

tem said...

Did old man have stuff?

Moving would be good for H. Cost of living is like 50% of boston and same jobs pay pretty much the same...maybe 80%....even if that is the case you are still ahead 30%.

tem said...

My cousin is basically retarded and has a baby...him and his baby mamma make it work with two low paying jobs in cleveland...mostly because rent is like 500 a month instead of the probably 1500 you pay.

The Rev said...

Ah, woe!

Keef said...

We don't talk Disney characters here, rev

Good to see Marty Fish making a run at the US Open.

kids need to bucklet thewir helmets....50% of the plays have a helmet flying off

tem said...

College FG angles are dumb. Move the fucking hashes in.

tem said...

Coaches should be smart enough to take a couple penalties to back the kicker up and make it easier. 20yd FGs from the hashes are hard.

tem said...

Or let the coach opt to move the ball in 5 yards from the hash if he wants to.

Nothing like ruining a kicker because he missed a 20yd fg.

Cliff lee shutout

Cmk has been watching this show called Dance Moms all day today. Makes me want to kill myself
