I love you. Maybe it's too soon. Maybe I'll get hurt again. Maybe you will too. But I love you.

To the wise ladies of PD:

We have a new co-worker. She is now one of two dispatchers that uses the Ladies room. She was working during first shift and left. When the girl on 2nd shift went to the bathroom a few hours later, she came out not knowing what the hell she should do - she saw what looked like a blood drop on the floor next to the toilet and a few blood streaks down the outside of the bowl.

She was not comfortable using the facility, not knowing anything about this new person and what kinds of wonderful diseases strangers could have. None of the dudes volunteered to clean it, and I am now gone.

Right now the plan is, when I get in tomorrow, to wait a half hour or so for the new hire to go on break, check to see if the blood is still there, and inform one of the supervisors that will be present of the situation. Do you feel like this is the least invasive method, and one which will avoid embarrassment or ill will?

I would prefer not to approach the new hire about it. Having spent the last week with her, she makes me a bit uneasy in her mannerisms and I would prefer to not have some completely off the wall accusation flown at me in the event my suspicions are correct.

Well, for one: Fucking gross.

And for two: Accidents happen, drips happen. But, you REALLY NEED TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF. I have wet wipes in my purse for a damn reason. But streaks? Awful. Uncalled for. I get it, it's gross enough being a woman, it really is, but FFS, with great power comes great responsibility.

Yeah, that. And you know, it attracts bears. We don't need them in the workplace. It's a safety hazard.


SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH!

I said bears.

One is fine.

If any UK/European folk care to attempt this, I'd be interested.

I say I join the lot of you for the Munich Oktoberfest in 2015.  :lulz:

That meatup was fun as fuck. I'd be happy if we could get something going again.

Interesting article, Net, thanks. I'd never really connected fitness types with socioeconomic status but it does make sense.

So if I'm both educated and perpetually broke, does that mean I can do poorly at both?  :lulz:

I hope to still see you around, of course, and I hope you'll find PD a good spot for you again in a while.

The golden apple was used to mock vain gods... why do people insist on using that symbol for Eris?
To remind everyone that vain gods still need a good mocking

Well put!

Quote
You’ve never heard of exploding casket syndrome (ask your mortician if it’s right for you), but funeral directors and cemetery operators have. They sell so-called “protective” or “sealer” caskets at a premium worth hundreds of dollars each, with the promise that they’ll keep out air and moisture that — they would have you believe — cause bodies to rapidly deteriorate. Like Tupperware for the dead, they “lock in the freshness!” with a rubber gasket.

But, in reality, you can’t protect a corpse from itself. While you’re insulating grandma from the outside air, she could be stewing in her own fluids, turning into a slurry from the work of anaerobic bacteria. When the weather turns warm, in some cases, that sealed casket becomes a pressure cooker and bursts from accumulated gases and fluids of the decomposing body. The next time relatives visit grandma, they could find her rotting remains oozing from her tomb in the form of a nauseating thick fluid.

Man, I was all for cremation before this but how can a guy pass up the opportunity to HAVE HIS CASKET EXPLODE.

It took a bit to get the Firefly reference.

Roger I'd been hearing that a glass of chocolate milk after workouts is one of the best things you can do, and I can attest to feeling revitalized after having it myself. It'll help with the protein.

I'll definitely give that a try.

I've come to love the soreness. I've noticed significant gain in the two months I've been at it, as well as in my appearance.

There hasn't been time for appearance yet, but I don't feel like a lop of shit anymore.  And the soreness?  Yeah, a combination of dopamine and a feeling of accomplishment from having lifted heavy things up and put them down again.

You two have very different body types than my own, though. I keep seeing a sign for a free body fat percentage estimate at the gym and I want to take them up on it just to fuck with them.   :lulz:

 :lulz: I couldn't make it through Waffles' first bench set but damned if I didn't walk around at 7% when I was terribly out of shape.
