Sooooooo Over It

Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
It's a rough day in Ye Olde Intrepid Reporter's world when I crack a beer at 14:00.  
Catchy lil tune Aye?
Discovered them whilst in Iraq on Tour #1.  The Quiznos Commercial?  'Member that weirdness?  The "Spongemonkeys"...  weird then, weird now but the "First Drink of the Day" was the Countries INC daily anthem, no matter what time of the day, and seeings that it was 24-7-365 'on duty' over there, didn't care -when- we bent at the elbow with cool n'frosties, just as long as it happened.

A lot can be said for the Russian Ideal of Fighting the Good Fight plastered off your ass
Jes' Sayin'
Made the Give a Fucks Minimal.
Reason(s) for this early imbibing are many.
Training at work, where -I'm- the overseeing manager OF the training this time, well let's just say it's special.  These here folks are -supposed- to be MY direct reports when (and IF) they finish the three week long training.  We're about mid-week now on week two of three and a half.. so about 1/3rd done.  For an example though, we -started with 18.

The two popped smoke after getting the equipment, i.e. no-call-no-show AFTER getting about a grand in equipment.  Then, we just lost two more who stopped showing up period fucking dot.  Was there ALL last week, and then -poof!-  Gones-ville.  No idea, but now they're done.  And then, whelp, honestly, three of them.... they just ain't gonna make it at this point.

They failed a multiple choice open book test
There's being dumb, and then there's What. The. Fuck.  I can't tell if it's willful i'gnince or not giving a fuck.  I mean c'mon... and between the test redo, we went over the answers... so there' literally ZERO excuse.

I have a meeting about it later... and oh yeah, the meetings are adding a hour, hour and a half on top of the day.  And then I had to fight about the comp time as I mentioned before... OMFG... I need to re-examine that Pizza Delivery gig... less hassle and stress for equivalent $$$

And THEN, on top of the Daily Stupid, DumBunny's been having DumFuck call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call, and call... Like mad stalker-harassment level, BUT when we went to call the cops, well, NOW we have to GO to the Sherriff's office to do the report 'cos I sure as fuck ain't having the Po-Po inside the crib.  Ain't nothing illegal, but I'd rather keep my advantages to myself thankee very mucho.

Then the security Camera with good night vision took a shit.  Now, no complaints about it.  It was a top of the line security camera in 2008 when I scored it in Iraq back in 2009.  However, the amount of use and age, it finally crapped out.  Sooooo off to the Wyze store for a replacement, 'cos I -need- a camera and recording going on, and Wyze is what Other Grans use at their place.
Like $40 a throw.  There's a 70 Dollar one that's completely wireless, but that one needs to get recharged every 4-5 weeks.  So, we'll have to see when I can get that one... the one I got was the indoor wired one, and it's up and running now.  But anyways... we found out aboot them from otherGrans.

When we were over there, we noticed the addition of security cams all around the perimeter.  We asked and it seems that pre-DumBunny coming, they were having an issue with Muh Diversity coming up into their gated neighborhood, and stealing out of the cars in the yards.  So they did a full suite around the casa to secure and record.

My next one or two will be on payday, Insh'Allah.
The resolution so far has me highly tickled though.  1080 HD and color night vision -supposedly-.
Ve shall zee hmmmmn?
So, hence my first, second and I'm on my 3rd beer now...

In the midst of flowers, with one jug of wine
Drinking alone, and no one else,
I offer up my cup, to the bright moon
My shadows and I, a party of three.

  1. The three that keep failing the open book test, I think that I know why. In my experience, many of the "Muh Diversity" crowd are no joke functionally illiterate.

    Many moons ago I was a Graduate Assistant "assisting" a professor teaching freshman American History. The majority of the "Muh Diversity" crowd couldn't read or write and flunked the tests big time. I was told to grade their tests "C's" because "racism". When I complained I was told that either I "got with the program or my doctoral program would be in jeapardy". That was one of the many reasons that at the end of that semester I took a break that I am still on many years later.

    1. Yeeeeeeeeeeah... I'm literally the. singular. Token Whypeepo... _Everyone- Else is 'something else'... the trainers and my fellow pros? THEY'RE great! Love them! BUT these people, where the fuck did they get recruited from? A fucking mental health facility for the mentally infirm???!!!!?????

    2. Teaching high school I can guarantee it ain't getting better regarding the functionally illiterate Muh Diversity crowd. Not allowed to fail 'em, not allowed to correct 'em, and can't assign anything that has more than one moving part to it. As the meme says: Don't worry...things are gonna get much worse.

    3. No child left behind, indeed.

  2. Heh.
    It's only Tuesday too buddy.

    1. Beer #5 done, just cracked #6. annnnnnd it's only 16:10... I got 3 and a half MOR hours of dis shytte Aye

    2. You can't call it "Day Drinking" if you don't start at breakfast ...

  3. "It's only Tuesday..." That some good shit. I used to provoke the heathens I worked with to "Cheer-up! This is as good as it gets!"

  4. This is probably a real stupid question, but why I can buy a security cam with decent night vision for $30 but night vision scopes and other gear are through the roof expensive.

  5. Little data point. Couple guys at work needing Verizon support. On hold for an hour or more, get connected to incompetence. Will try the support lottery again later and hope for at least a $2 payout.

  6. I kind of wonder about that bit as well. back in the 1990's made great money and got a sony camcorder with great night
    vision on it. I mean way better that the old starlight scope crap we had back in the day. and the house cams have
    good night vision as well. as far as the local I.q. of the clowns today. well, they never had to tell us not to eat soap or any of the other dumb as hell shit these kids do today. ever since peanut's dept of special ed. the country has
    gotten dumber ! and with shop class long gone, these clowns will not be able to fix anything with their hands.
    hell most kids can figure how to use a damn can opener ! but they know everything ?

  7. Hey, it's always 5 o'clock SOMEWHERE...

  8. How bad does it have to be for you to start drinking Tequila? Red

  9. As was my past experience with the POPO in question, the farther away you keep them the better off you are.
