The admin gal (Savior of Kittens) who runs HR and a raft of other things around here sent me this clipping from an e:mail that arrived in her box. Real applicant? Gosh, I hope so. The HR gal dropped her bong and a baggy of purple hit the ground. Her office smells like bong water now.
COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME IF THIS IS THE SAME COMPANY THAT FOX NEWS EXPOSED FOR SMOKING POT AND DRINKING ON THE JOB?
IF IT IS, I WOULD LIKE TO APPLY TO YOUR COMPANY. I NEED A GOOD PAYING JOB WHERE I CAN SMOKE POT DURING THE DAY. ALSO I NEED GOOD BENEFITS.
THANK YOU, XXXXXXX
“I need a good paying job where I can smoke pot during the day”… don’t we all, sister. Benefits? Sure!
No, SofK didn’t really drop her bong. No, I don’t smoke dope, although you could be excused for thinking so if you listen to me long enough. We do happen to be a drug-free company. SofK was laughing so hard she was crying.
I asked the boss (who was standing there) if perhaps it had been a bad idea that I had lit up in the middle of yesterday’s meeting. Sadly, he’s become used to me and I can no longer surprise him w/o going into pretty deep waters.
I just saw the surgeon again today because he asked me to come discuss some thoughts he had. He did a risk/reward analysis and only wants to fuse two discs. His other choice for me is to opt for a disc replacement. When will they need to replace it? Never. Recovery time before resuming life? Two weeks if fusion, one week if replacement. How cool is that, huh?
My insurance may not cover the disc replacement. I told him I don’t care which way we go as long as I get hand and finger strength and dexterity back and less pain. He thinks that is possible.
So in 2-3 weeks I may get a lot of my life back…
Dare I hope?
It would be just in time for Christmas.
Note: Do I really think it’ll be 1-2 weeks for recovery? No. It will be longer than that. 1-2 weeks is time before I can go back to work but taking it easy. Yes, I could do more and sooner, but why push it?
Co-worker BLA (Black Lab on Amphetamines) sent this to me today:
Title of article is “Amazing story of cat reunited with owner after 18-month outing to Margate.” The owner seems happier than kitty, judging by the photo:
I think he is right – the cat seems less-than-thrilled.
The Dude made me close my eyes for a Christmas present. He knows I am a softie for rubber chickens. Ugly, ain’t it?
