DA finally got a case together after so many years and covid drew the thing out for another nearly two years, what a mess. I'm not a huge proponent of the death penalty, but I don't believe taxpayers should be paying for anything other than a bullet for that guy.

    Southwest Airlines annoys me. And/or whoever (ATC? pilots?) had a sickout because they don’t want to take a vaccine. Wife and daughter are stuck trying to get home, flight this morning was cancelled and the replacement tonight seems to be headed that way as well (delayed 2 hours so far).

    The media is running with that because it's the best headline, but it's not true.

    Definitely a First World problem, but Covid testing requirements for international travel. I'm flying to Europe soon and need a PCR test done within 72 hours of my arrival. When you consider the time needed to get the test results and the travel time to the destination there's not much wiggle room.

    I certainly understand why countries want anyone entering them to be tested, but man it certainly ratchets up the pre-flight stress!

    Man, my kid recently traveled and his entry testing experience was super stressful. The lab fucked up the time of when the test was taken and he had no recourse. He was flying out Sunday morning, the lab closed Friday at 5 and due to the time they printed on his results, he was outside of the window. Turned out to not be a big deal, I guess they weren't concerned about about a few hours, but he was sure he was going to get turned around on entry.

    Felt your pain last weekend. 9.5 hour drive to our border crossing into New Brunswick. We were half an hour late out the door which was fortuitous as that's when the negative test results arrived which meant I could print them. There were no evening tests available near me, so our tests were performed about 58 hours before. Crossing the border into Quebec nearby would have proven more problematic. And that drive sucks for a number of reasons other than the huge helping of covid suck.

    The USA Today article covers it pretty well (oddly enough), but I'll add that while it's true the pilots' union doesn't want a vaccine mandate imposed on them, it's not because the membership doesn't want to get the shot. The union knows that they can't give something without getting something in return.

    There are longstanding staffing issues that the management (at every airline) won't address because the bean counters realized years ago that running x% understaffed saves money. No new hires = no upgrades. That goes for the flight attendants as well, who've been complaining about the pairing construction, crew sched, and the IT that holds it all together for years now.

    Plus SWA has a just in time business model, and lots of short flights, that sets the dominoes up so that it doesn't take much to knock a lot of them down.

    Religious folk annoy me. Rounds of interviews. Made an offer that was agreed acceptable by all. Salary, relocation package, etc. Got turned down at last minute because god wanted her to be in the town she was in. She just had “a feeling.” Fack.

    Well sure, though I don’t care how they swing, until major decisions are made that abandon all logic and are actually lauded for their illogic…. That’s annoying.
    focus.

    To follow up on this I had a testing appointment scheduled for this morning. I show up and the sandwich board outside says "results turnaround currently 2-3 days." That ain't gonna work with my flight on Friday. So back to the drawing board. Very stressful.

    I ended up finding a place only to be told they didn't have the kind of test I needed, but their other locations did. Ended up having to cross the lake over to Bellevue, but I got it done. Can't say it was as easy as when I went to Canada in August. Then it was quick, painless and free (covered by insurance, that is).

    Ordered one simple nut to make my motorcycle functional last week. Ended up ordering from three different suppliers just to be sure that I got it by today at the latest so that I could go on a trip. (Actually I was shooting for last weekend but that wasn't even a remote possibility).

    First off the local shop. They initially got the part number wrong, which set me up for total failure with other suppliers who I called looking for the part. Then they ordered the right part, but I found out today that it'll be coming in next fucking week! 2 weeks after I ordered it.

    Second, ordered from online shop, they accidentally sent me the order twice, but the wrong part

    Third, another online shop that I ordered from before any of them never shipped the part, and never told me, good thing because they got the part wrong anyway.

    So now I'm overnighting a nut from SLC for $40 so that I can go on a trip one day late.

    I told my wife, "I'm just a squirrel trying to get a nut!" she laughed anyway. What a rigamarole for a tiny piece of metal! JFC I'm annoyed, and have time on may hands now to bitch about it today apparently.
