Both of you are doing better than me, I quit my job not too long ago, told the owner where to stuff it and quit and went home. Within 30 minutes he was knocking on my door begging me to come back...

I have wished every day since that I hadn't gone back... lol

My mom and I talked this morning a bit. I was telling her how last night I just didn't get anything done regarding work (i usually work for a couple of hours in the evening so I can keep my head above water). She said, "Ya know...when you are laying on your death bed, thinking about your life, you won't regret not working last night. You WILL regret those nights you chose to work instead of spend time with your family."

Damn.

I had a friend tell me very similar to that once. It sunk in and changed my life. For that I will always be grateful to her.

The problem is though...now I'm bored.

I've actually had the pleasure of knocking one of my bosses on his butt...quite few times. Playing sports. That one I actually respected.

The others that I didn't respect usually got fired or retired, but I kept on. (Shhhh, I did have a hand in some of those)

But you have shown yourself to be the stronger person.

BFFT
I went to my first boss as a lowly apprentice (A great man I still admire and respect) and asked for a raise, my grades at college were all at Distinction level (the highest there is) and I was outshining some of the older guys.

His words to me were

"Cody, you've worked hard and studied well, for a young man you've surpassed my expectations on many occasions, you can have your raise young man, but with a bit of advice.......................Just keep in the back of your mind ........... the graveyards are full of indispensable people"

Never forgotten that, and used it a fair few times myself.

BFFT you're a big boy now......................regardless bro.................mum knows best


Don't forget to tell her you love her.

Thanks for the kind words TD

You've just inspired me


The 6 nations rugby is on at the moment, my new boss is a massive rugby fan, as am I, I feel an inter-company rugby match coming on.

I owe you one man

It was first learning Rugby that my Platoon Sergeant once knocked me on my butt, I was a young PFC at the time. He asked me why I was holding back when I had the advantage. I told him that he outranked me and I thought it would be disrespectful to knock him down. At that point, he knocked me down again, and told me that rank has nothing when it comes to the playing field.

After that...it was game on!


Quite a valuable lesson that I always applied to life.

LMAO

I learned the same lesson, when I was a new recruit we were doing Krav Magar (My ex bro in law is a master and taught me)

My, I suppose the equivalent of a British Sergeant Major, or drill sergeant state side told me "This is your life you're defending, now hit hard, hit fast, and disarm me if you can"

Sorry I can't stop laughing at the memory. The look on his face when he came around with his 9mm in his face (Unloaded)............ priceless. That's 2 I owe you man.

I need to buy Kodak tommoz

Cody


She had cancer a few years back, and it took a strong, healthy woman and reduced her to an elderly grandmother. She survived, but the chemo did a number on her.

I moved into her house with her a few years back. The house is large, and she was getting to where it wasn't being maintained. I'd check on her and she would be eating canned food and sandwiches. She'd get excited by me offering to bring her anything to eat that was actually cooked. The sink would be full of dishes that she just couldn't stand up to wash.

The wife is a nurse, so we decided to move in with her. Originally we would have had her move in with us....but she didn't want to leave her house. I liked my house better, honestly. LOL....but however she wanted it.

I tell her i love her every day. She eats a hot breakfast made by my wife every morning. I make her a hot dinner, usually of a 4 star quality, every night. I often will just knock on her door late in the evening with a cup of Lavendar tea (Revolutions Tea....OMG....amazing tea).

I had a rough childhood. She was my angel for so many years.

In the oilfields around here, if you wanna fire someone you have to do it 1 of 2 ways:

- call the cops to stand by while you deliver a termination
- whoop their ass

If you try to fire someone in the oilfield without LEO present, there will be a fight. And it isn't like winning the fight keeps your job. You will still be unemployed.

And usually, a couple of weeks later when everyone cools off, you can get hired back on.

My dad would come home early a couple of times a year after having gotten in a fight with his foreman. He'd stay home for a day or two, then go back to work like nothing had happened.

Not that I am aware of. But i would need to check with our family nurse (the wife) to see.

She had 2 disks in her back rupture about a year and a half ago. So she takes several medications related to that (like nerve related drugs and antiinflammatories)

Due to the issues the cancer caused with her kidneys, she choices for medications can be very limited. She is a big fan of homeopathy, and is known to do activated charcoal for stomache upset, etc.

Now she uses a walker. Sometimes she will sit in at while doing up some dishes. She tells me, "I have to feel like i contribute".
So we let her contribute however/whenever she wants.
