Not suck is... I may have regular internet access by the end of the week.

However, being a stepdaddy to 5 rugrats now means damn... not quite as much net time!

Suck is .... spending £800 (guessing approx $900 - $1000) on a new family car.. driving it home... going to start it the next day and finding it'll turn over but refuses to fire.... the central locking won't lock, all the electric windows have jammed closed, the boots stuck locked and no lights want to work.... .... getting a mechanic friend to look at it... to be told the timing belt has gone to hell, as well as the engine head, plugs, turbo and all the above.... total estimated repair cost for the heap of junk £500 - £800 ..... . ..... ....

.... .... ... and then having the wifey that insisted it was the car she wanted and didn't want the slightly newer one (albeit a bit more expensive) blame you for everything that has gone wrong, including the sky being blue ... .. ..

... .... ... staying awake until 3am working under torch light to try and get the damn thing running again .... .... oh and in 3hrs I've got to be at work.. not to mention my mate that has to be in work in 3hrs also (and he has a 2hr drive home to do)....

... and all this without a single cup of tea because *I* broke the kettle (without going near it all day!) by dropping it on the floor... yes, it might have slipped out of the wifey's hands to the floor, shattered into bits.. .. but she's adamant it was 100% ME that broke it into pieces .... ... ...


... Rusty has not had a good day today.... not a good day at all .... ...

Sorry Rusty. Sim thing happened to me with my computer couple of years ago, so I hope your final auto outcome improves greatly.

And if these lemon sales people were to get retirement benefits that reflect their actual methods, I would not be extremely saddened by their plights.

Re: Suck is....

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Tue Sep 27, 2011 12:21 am

Dang, RustyDios. Sorry to hear about the car + spouse problems.



Time for my addition for the evening, luckily not quite so long-lasting and monetarily expensive as RustyDios' day. I've decided to put it in a spoiler tag. Those of you that do not yet have children and are looking forward to it someday may not want to read it, as it may be slightly discouraging.
Spoiler:

1st: I end up bathing twins that have been thoroughly enjoying pasta with red sauce. (ok, this one is normal and not so bad).

2nd: The wife comes in, quite angrily, with my eldest (8 year old) offspring and an electric hair trimmer. She proceeds to cut his hair short (making a huge mess on the floor and all over the child). It seems he'd taken it upon himself to test the trimmer, and had basically given himself a bald spot near his left temple.

3rd: The second offspring (5 years old), comes crying to the bathroom. Looks like he's pinched his thumb in a door or something. He's sent off to run it under cold water.

4th: Just finishing with oldest offspring's new trim (sending him off to the shower in the other bathroom), I turn around to find one of my youngest offspring has grown quite relaxed in the bathtub and left a deposit. Time to pull the twins from the tub and re-wash them in the sink. Then comes a fight to get diapers and pajamas on (they had been enjoying the bath and didn't want to be taken out of the water).

5th: 5 year old is still crying with his hand under the running water. Nurse wife takes a closer look at his thumb. Not a pinch. It's a bad 2nd degree burn from touching a hot hair-straightening iron thingy (probably turned on by his older brother). So, now I've got a still-crying 5 year old with an ice pack against his thumb, two tired (but clean, again) 1.5 year olds, a newly-trimmed 8 year old that isn't happy, an unhappy (and tired, since she worked all day) wife, and a heck of a headache.

6. Make the 8 year old sit with his crying brother while we hastily put the twins to bed. Walk out as they start to cry as the parents leave the room and close the door (this is typical nightly behavior, they eventually go to sleep after 2-10 minutes (unless they are growing new teeth, then it takes longer plus medication)).

7. Send the 8 year old to bed (instantly making him angry, since it's about 20 minutes earlier than normal).

8. Sit with the 5 year old for a half hour while waiting for the ice (and full doses of both Advil and Tylenol) to kick in. Then sit around (feeling lousy about allowing children anywhere in the house besides the famly room and their own bedroom), while the wife spends time with him tucking him into bed. Amazingly, he falls asleep after about 15 minutes (probably relief from medication kicking in + exhaustion from crying for more than 30 minutes straight).

9. Headache decides it wants to hint at a migraine. Time for a shot of caffeine + Advil + Tylenol.

10. Oh, right. Gotta go clean and disinfect the bathtub. Crap...out of vinegar (my disinfectant of choice...kills just as much harmful stuff as bleach, but doesn't ruin my clothes or lungs). Oh, well. It's 11 pm and the store is still open for another hour.

I'm thinking later I may try to get online and kill something. Or go to sleep. Whatever.

Having the passenger side trailing arm break on the families only car, taking said car to part store, then on the way home to replace said part, the transmission goes to hell. After doing some digging find that it will cost more for a new trans then what I paid for the car, guh, time for a new one and a huge chunk of debt.

Maybe... Got drivers who run into lamp poles in a completely empty parking lot? Or who think when a school bus stops, flashes its lights and extends a stop sign, that means pass it since the oncoming traffic lane is cleared?

Those examples aren't hyperbole. At least the schoolbus one got busted... Passed the school bus to find a cop right in front of the bus

Suck is...

one puking 1.5 year old twin puking sick on and off from about 2 am Friday morning to about 7 am Friday....

and now one puking sick 8 year old and one puking sick 5 year old...and yes, it's 2:45 am and I'm awake and probably won't be very alert by morning.

I hate vomit. Just one of a few reasons I never had more than a sip of alcohol (stupid wine at church as a kid) and don't hang out with those that drink 'til they pop. That stomach acid smell is just...bad.

I had intended on having a hak update ready by, oh, yesterday. It may be a few more days. Rolling Eyes

Ditto to that The Amethyst Dragon.

Worst trip to New Orleans I ever had was as a designated driver for a some friends and aquaintances. A few imbibed a bit much, and it was sober old me that was informed by the restaurant mgt to clean it up, or else. Then to discover that all had driven standard transmissions, so we all were stuck until a few become well enough to get us elsewhere. Plus the same drunk nearly started a riot; last weekend we ever did anything else with the same pack.

BTW - Using that post to announce a hak update is priceless! Suspect

Oh, yeah. It's about 5 am and I'm still awake. Time to put some in the fridge so I can keep up tomorrow (still have to take care of all 4 kids plus a wife that's recovering from surgery).

Sounds like a good time to invest in 13 plastic buckets. You could label each with a person's name, so you know who's responsible for cleaning their own buckets.

Eek, sounds like a nasty bug going around... silent pale
Spoiler:
Every night, Harold would go down to the liquor store, get a six pack, bring it home, and drink it while he watched TV. One night, as he finished his last beer, the doorbell rang. He stumbled to the door and found a six-foot cockroach standing there. The bug grabbed him by the collar and threw him across the room, and left.

The next night, after he finished his 3th beer, the doorbell rang.

He walked slowly to the door and found the same six-foot cockroach standing there. The big bug punched him in the stomach, then left.

The next night, after he finished his 1st beer, the doorbell rang again. The same six-foot cockroach was standing there. This time he was kneed in the groin and hit behind the ear as he doubled over in pain. Then the big bug left.

The fourth night Harold didn't drink at all. The doorbell rang. The cockroach was standing there. The bug beat the snot out of Harold and left him in a heap on the living room floor.

The following day, Harold went to see his doctor. He explained events of the preceding four nights. "

" What can I do? " he pleaded.

" Not much " he doctor replied. "There's just a nasty bug going around."

*covers up to avoid any germs getting through the internet to infect me and spreads out germ masks to the sick!*




Anyway, jokes aside*, I do sincerely hope for a speedy recovery of all those whom have fallen ill! Smile

Sounds like a good time to invest in 13 plastic buckets. You could label each with a person's name, so you know who's responsible for cleaning their own buckets.

Mind you, 8 of those buckets belong to 8 boys, 8 brothers of mayhem who would find a way to turn those buckets into barfbombs Laughing

Suck is....

pre-ordering Mass Effect 3 online, paying in full so that it will be delivered to my door on the release date.... only to end up having UPS tell me in their package tracking system that they need a valid street address to deliver to... no less than 3 times (they failed to deliver 3 times, really?!)

After verifying the address on my order confirmation was correct, and then popping it into google maps and google maps instantly coming up with the correct location of my residence, I then contacted the retailer and forwarded them screenshots of the tracking info and the google maps search I did.

They contacted UPS and confirmed the delivery address, so UPS again tried to bring my package out to me, and failed an additional 4 times... after I had already provided them a screenshot of a map with the nearest highway exit included as a reference point.

And now, having contacted UPS directly, I am told I have to wait another 2 days to get my delivery... I would almost be willing to go to their DC to pick it up, but that wastes more of my time and gas, and I have long distance errands to run the next few days.... so its not even possible... besides the whole principle of the thing:

I shouldn't have to go pick up something (over a week late) that I paid to have delivered, when all the information I provided was correct.

Damn it.

Suck is...

having to teach myself biochemistry stuff so that I can help the wife with a class she has to take online (for no real purpose related to her career other than the school wants it taken), with deadlines...

while nursing a potentially broken toe...caused by a 2 year old.

Yeah, I'll be offline pretty much for the next day or so while I attend to pesky "real life" stuff.

Oh, how I missed Elhanan's bad puns! Wink

Suck is hearing your fiance shouting expletives from the next room because the football match he's streaming online keeps cutting out at 'critical moments', then realising that's probably your fault. Because you're simultaneously dowloading Aenea update files. Oops. Embarassed

... Scented soap! *grumbles*

Really; must one continue to smell the sweet smell of lilac or lavender at the keyboard minutes or hours after washing? The scent reminds me of funeral parlors, and I am getting there quickly enough without the reminder, Thanks!

Not Suck is...

Riding the Harley home from a visit to my parents at a local campground.

Suck is...

Only to find a unusual overabundance of insects, ie, not being able to see after five min or so of riding due to my glasses covered with misc bug innards and having a total of around a 30 min ride home.

Even MORE suck is...

Hitting a bat at 50 or so mph on said ride because of said overabundance of bugs, thankfully it hit my knee and not my face Cool (still stings like a bugger though)

I guess the not suck part was also keeping your mouth closed when said bug and bat meetings took place.... geek

Suck is...illness. Been out of it all day today until just a couple minutes ago. So much for a productive NWN (or anything) day.

Now, off to take more meds.
