His name was Hayes. We called him "Purple Hayes".

He was only the PSG by the Company Roster. I told him what to do mostly.

Then he in turn translated my Mountain Talk into his Southern Mississippi/Alabama Ebonics. That's just how it kinda came out.

You're spot on though.

Voting.

Longest lines I've seen in a long time, probably because the officials feel the need to explain (in excruciating detail) the process to everyone. Takes maybe 10 seconds to print the form, 60 seconds to explain. Or, you could just print the form and ask if we have any questions. Saves 50 seconds per voter.

And, the f***ing know it all in the line. "You're disabled? Well, you can go right to the front of the line". Election official - "No, they can wait in these chairs right here until their family/etc get to the head of the line and then all go in together to vote." If you don't know what you're talking about, STFU...

My spouse unit telling me my ass is starting to look flatter than Hank Hills's ass.

Pfffft. I just turned the music up louder.

Inside I wanted to have one of those Ron White moments and say "Well, let me tell you something about you that YOU dont know".

Better than having a fat ass. And Hank Hill is the man! My boxer dog is named after him.

Cool show. I like asernull's avatar of Dale Gribble. He even post like Dale would talk.

Sad Day. My alarm clock died. No, not the electric one. I shot it in 2009.

My 7+ y/o Rooster. I don't know how long they're supposed to live but he was well beyond his years. We had our first whiff of snow last night. I guess he said " Fuck it, I'm not going to put up with another one of these winters".

Adios my friend.

RIP Homer.

The little bastards were/are in the mainspring housing. Doubt I'm up to taking it apart that much. I could see about four through the mag well, although they weren't moving. But they can live for up to a year without feeding. Hosed it down with a bedbug spray called Sniper and bagged it up again. Might put some silica packets in there with it.

Crooked ass scanned documents. It took me 30 minutes to straighten it up and then I fucked it up so bad that it was no longer a writable PDF. Took me an hour to figure out that I should’ve just use the fucking white out And sent it on its way.

Soooooo, what you're saying is that you had a blonde moment? You're not supposed to use the white out on the monitor.

Stop trying to forge documents and you won’t have this problem.

I finally spent the $5 on the ScannerPro app and now use my phone to scan directly to my server.

Listening to whiney former NFL players bitching about the pain meds they got while playing.
For a bunch of guys with college degrees, ya figure they would be smart enough to look up the crap they are taking online or in a PDR? Last person I would trust is a team doctor who is more concerned with the team than you.

Common Sense 101 is not part of the curriculum at any college I know of.
