    unfortunately, I couldn't tell them to pound sand. There aren't other options here. My plan is to take their bill, subtract the amount of work I lost and show the net negative. I don't make good scratch, but he'll still owe me a lot. luckily have the owners girlfriend on recording setting the appt (that they failed to keep).

    As for homeopathy, yeah. The active ingredient is known as 'placebo'

    People who make up stupid nicknames for public figures that play on the person's name, and insist on using that name over and over for the person. Like, say, Killary, or the one I just saw, Aaron Boobe. It doesn't make you smart or witty. It just demonstrates that you're a low brow shitgibbon.

    As with almost everything, Trump is an exception.

    Don't knock homeopathy. Great way to treat people with nothing wrong with them who insist on treatment, without doing harm, and usually it works. There was a study that showed that placebos work even if you tell people they're placebos.

    Those are ok because they don't play on Trump's name. By this logic Dump is out, though.

    The one I see in Seattle that annoys me is people referring to the "City Clowncil" like they were the first person to think of such an amazing witticism. I mean, the City Council does deserve to be made fun of, but this is lame. Anyone using "sheeple" is in the same camp.

    Tell that to the CBD folks. "Ow. I got an ant bite." "Oh, have you tried CBD oil on that?" "Man, this cold won't go away." "Oh, try out CBD oil. It totally cured my dog's cold."

    The CBD craze is kind of surpassing the essential oil fad. Except now CBD shops are multiplying like rabbits like vape shops. And every other kind of business has signs that say "Yes! We have CBD products!"

    Since his passing earlier this year, I've taken to referring to Robert Mugabe as Robert Mugabwas.

    How often does Mugabe come up in casual conversation in your circles?

    FIFY.

    And frequently. What do you talk about if you aren't discussing megalomaniacal, corrupt African strongmen (freedom fighter if you're a sycophant)?

    I find ways to work Idi Amin into everyday conversation too.

    My geriatric car decided to blow up today (still haven't gotten the verdict from the mechanic). I have no clue what the heck is wrong with it, though. Hopefully it's minor but the engine MIGHT have blown itself. I don't know since my wife was driving it to work and had it towed to the mechanic. Wife JUST started a new job and hasn't received her first paycheck yet (thus no paystubs) and I just lost mine so I think a car loan is likely out of the question for the moment and we're broke as balls since life's been kicking us in the nuts left and right these last few weeks. I was planning on taking my son camping this weekend, but when everything hit the fan today had to bail on that as I was packing. Friiiiiiick. When it rains, it pours, huh?

    We'll figure it out. We always do. But still annoying nevertheless.

    If your wife has an offer letting from her new employer stating her salary, that should be adequate for a car loan, if it comes to that. Just FYI.

I get a call maybe an hour later from their guy saying hey I'm just down the street and finished a job early so I can come over right now if that works. Sure thing! When he leaves he hands me a bill that includes a $150 emergency trip charge on it. Asshole. Figured I could get them to wipe the whole bill if I complained so I sent a letter along attached to my check which pointed out that was bullshit and if they cashed the check it would be the last time we would use them at our office or on any of our construction jobs. As I expected they returned the check with an apology. Fuckers....

    Woke up one morning last week and the furnace was out. Tried troubleshooting with no success. Called a few HVAC companies before I found one that said they MIGHT be able to get to me that day. I say ok and wait. Managed to fix the issue myself and had the phone in my hand to call them and cancel when the phone rings. Itís the tech saying heís on his way over. I call him off, thinking thatís the end of it.

    Today I got a bill in the mail for $140. Dispute is ongoing.

    CBD has replaced acupuncture for this kind of thing where I live. Substitute ‘acupuncture’ for CBD in the above quote and that’s how it went in my town until CBD came along.
    And I guess that I just don't know
