Glad to hear you are having a good time.

The monster lurking around the corner is a rebound relationship. Great thing if you keep in mind not to get too involved.

I say this now, before it happens

Oh, I've thought about that. The dangers of a rebound, not actually dating. But thanks.:)

Jasper's coming to visit tomorrow, actually....

Manson/Zombie show was great. They had some kind of blowout in Detroit the night before, with Manson acting *gasp* like a total d-bag, but they held it together for us.

Could see Sherri Moon Zombie from our seats during Zombie's set. J goes "I've seen her boobs before!" A co-worker also works at the venue and she said Manson wanted all kinds of weird stuff in his dressing room, like a snapping turtle. The rink I play at is attached to the venue, and apparently, they used our locker rooms, because a friend found Rob Zombie's set list (my new avatar pic).

Anyone seen this story?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/12/bus-...

Chick gets on bus, tries to not pay. Bus driver not having that. Gonna kicker her off at next stop if she don't have her money. She argues with him and eventually grabs his neck, spits in his face, calls him a bitch, and hits him.

Driver stopped bus, got up, and uppercuts her ass into tomorrow. Then grabs her and throws her off bus. Says bitch wanna act like a man I'll treat her like a man.

BRAVO!

Of course now he's suspended and may lose his job of 22 years. And that bitch will probably sue the transit authority who will settle.

So the guinea pig cage cleaning did not go as well as we'd hoped.

First off, the cage has a door on the front that has a crappy lock and may have even been installed/put together improperly, so it bit me when I was trying to take it off. Bent my thumb nail waaay back. Door went back on and will never be touched again.

The stupid trap door did nothing helpful, but I think it may have been how we were using it. Next week, I'm putting the cage on top of the garbage can and than maybe it will be useful.

And about half way into the job, I found Lulu laying on the bed with the pig on her belly. Totally not interested in cleaning any more, but after my stern lecture about this being her agreed-to responsibility and how a dirty cage can make him ill, she got up and finished the job, mostly. There are a few places that even I had trouble getting clean, and I don't mind helping, I just mind doing.

But I think the thing that irretated me the most was that the clean cage lasted all of an hour. That little thing is messy!

I could have done without that. Of course, I could have done without all the men too.

I liked to joke that I owned the only animal that could sh1t its own body weight in under an hour.

ve read a few stories on this and the comments. The vast majority of the folks support him. I think I counted 2 maybe 3 that did not. And one common theme was the assumption that he was dangerous and could go off at any time and what if he did this to his wife, would that be ok?

I want to uppercut these idiots. The guy's been on the job for 22 years. Has he cold-cocked anyone before? No? Then I'd hardly characterize him asa ticking time bomb waiting to explode. As far as the wife scenario, I wanna ask how many of them know wives who grab their husbands by the neck, spit in their face, call them a bitch and punch them?

Its one thing to maintain a level of professionalism when dealing with an unruly customer, but once you are assaulted, all bets are off. As far as I'm concerned, that person ceases to be a customer and becomes a violent criminal.

Same on the RTA for not having his back and punishing him at all. Would they rather have him sit there and take physical abuse?

Re: the enema guy: WTH: Part of his fetish must be the returning and knowing that some innocent person at home will be disgusted when they open their enema kit and find it pre-pooped.

I'm with you. How much are people supposed to put up with in any line of work? I don't agree with physical violence in most situations, but I hate that some women think they can batter men because 'men aren't supposed to hit women'. Two way street and all that.

If she assaulted him first, he might be able to make a case for self-defense, otherwise, there are laws in this country. If she was unruly and refused to pay and hence refused to leave, he should have called the authorities. I would have no sympathy if he lost his job. Hell, I've had coworkers, and some customers, get mouthy with me on a couple of occasions, the only reason I didn't belt them one was because I knew I'd lose my job if I did. So he should have known better. And just because a woman hits a man, is no excuse for him to punch her lights out. Unless he was actually in danger of great bodily harm, he's just some pr!k that beat up a female. No, I ain't giving kudos to this dbag.

So it's alright for a dude to punch a woman, but it's not alright for a man to shoot another man in self-defense?(Zimmerman) Gotta love your consistency!
