    Contacted a guy early this morning asking if he was still selling his monitors that he had put up on a marketplace couple of weeks ago. It's been 6 hours now and no text back. I hate when people do that. I know it goes both way and it's infuriating to deal with people who first say they're interested in buying your shit but then they just go silent. But in best-case-scenario, I would have picked up the monitors on my way back home from work but no.

    Well, I did it again, but this time I legit do NOT foresee me breaking it, as I just took a solid 2.5 minutes and did 5 miles in 36:33. LOL @ me.

    The loaf of bread I bought yesterday was too big so I had to take 2 lunchboxes to work today.

    Broke-down and bought a snowblower. Just had the first snowfall at my new house. Prior to, my wife asked if I wanted a snowblower for the driveway and I replied that I had been digging cars out- buried to the hood by city plows on city streets- for the past 16 years so a small driveway would be a cakewalk. How wrong I was.

    You fool. You absolute, utter fool. You've lived without a snowblower out in Worcester County for all these years? Now is when you get to enjoy the winters then.

    You have not known true pain until you get a foot and a half of wet heavy snow and you have to shovel it out of the way to just pull into your driveway after a 12hr shift. I bought a damn snowblower after that.

    I didn't think I'd ever say this but evening shifts suck. I've been working from 7 to 3 exclusively for the past 5 months or so and have gotten used to it despite hating morning shifts before that. But having to work from 2 to 10pm blows. Especially since it's winter and it gets dark before the first coffee break.

    A fool, yes, with an excuse: I was living in a condo with the bulk of snow removal included in the fee. A much simpler time, it was.

    Steady afternoon shifts are absolute dogshit. Most of your morning is shot if you sleep in or need to run errands, and if you wanna go out or do anything after work then you stay out late, then sleep in, then repeat.

    When I was in my 20's I loved the afternoon shift. The ability to sleep in, go to the gym during non-peak hours, and getting out at perfect time for meeting friends at the bar. Now, in my twilight years, I can't sleep for shit and just want to be home as early as possible. :lol:

    I live in NE VT, where the economy kind of depends on snow, and we're hardly getting a dusting, while the nearest major cities are all getting pounded. Worst of all, I just bought some really nice snow tyres and don't get to test their full capabilities.

    These are things you don't think about and should, you know?

    One of our printers at work, after you spend 5 minutes messing with the paper to get it to actually pick it up, tends to rip the paper in half and jam up.

    Printers are evil. They always malfunction when you need them most, but work fine just before and straight away after the situation is over...

    It's a conspiracy man! Printers are cheap, too cheap. But in the end they get you with the ink. Printers always need ink, and that ink is more expensive than gold!
