I'm thinking of moving into this thread permanently!!

Today, Jay got told that they are going to be taking every Friday off without pay for over 20 weeks starting in April That means $600 a month after taxes that we will be losing! We will find out for definite next week, but I really don't see anything stopping the stupid sequester


and, and, I have to pick up a doggy poop sample for the vet this morning!

Can't be worse than Illinois drivers. We had maybe 4" of snow today but the main roads were clear to the point of having liquid water on them. I still got stuck behind a line of people driving 20 under the whole way into work. Bastards

I don't know what's he's complaining about. Compared to Dallas, driving in that tin horn town that he lives in is like the pony rides at the county fair.
