I Called In Sick Today


Recommended Posts

I settled on this one due to my girlfriend's preference. I was tempted to go with the mini for $75 less, but we do sometimes watch Netflix together in bed with my current iPad, and I would like to just have one piece of technology handling that. I know this wasn't helpful for your situation.

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

and after 3 days, he is risen!

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

Well, I can provide a little more info. I currently have an iPad 2 that is several years old, but I use it a ton. I don't really feel like it's slow for my needs. My wife and I each have an iPhone 6. She's on hers pretty constantly...like rarely uses a computer...just uses that. (Occasionally my iPad if she needs a larger screen.) I'm torn on getting her a Mini or an Air.

I can say that when you get an iPad Air 2 you will notice how slow and heavy the iPad 2 is. sites like Amazon and eBay that have a lot of bullshit needing to load, effectively don't work on the iPad 2. maybe it was chrome sucking, not sure, but I found it progressively more irritating for the year that I had the iPad 2.

 

it sounds like she would like either of them over what she does currently. the entry level mini is only $75 cheaper than the entry level iPad Air 2... so that's another reason why I chose the mini. I got mine at Best Buy for $375.

If she's happy with the phone, than why buy an iPad?

Frau is way to sophisticated for that nonsense. A woman like her understands the operating system is much more important than size considerations.

SA looking contemplative and deep on the Twitter.

 

Thanks for noticing. Spot really made you think about life, about love, and what's important. Like Kansas basketball. I wish bill self could have been there with me.

Frau respects a girthy hog like them all. It's just a fact of life.

All this talk got me looking into if I should update my iPad 2 to iOS 9 from 7 and the article I read said "sure why not" so I did and then it froze during the process and now I'll probably have to restore it. THANKS

I want to buy my wife an iPad for Christmas, but I don't know which one to get.

 

I would start the search with "anything but an actual iPad". Maybe a Surface Pro? Or a Samsung Galaxy 9.7 if you want to Strat it up and go cheap.

I might have mentioned this before but females are typically the leader of the pack. Her sitting on Bruno is showing her dominance in the pecking order. But that look on his face is priceless.

I wouldn't say she is the leader. They mostly recognize that I'm the pack leader. She knows to steer clear of Bruno near his food bowl because there was a pretty good dust up early on. She does try little things like nudging in on his space. That pic was because he was there, and I was next to him, eating a sandwich, so she wanted in on it. The other pics are him trying to sleep and her wanting to play, so she gets on him. But yes, I agree that there is a dominance component, for sure.

As far as that look on his face. I can't tell you how much I just love looking at that boxer face and his mannerisms. Never fails to make me smile, or want to kiss his face. Love that damn dog

Oh I wasn't including you in the pack leader thought. My dogs too have no doubt I'm the pack leader but they definitely have a pecking order amongst themselves. In our case the male is the leader. Not because he try's to be as much as it's because he just gives zero fvcks what the female wants if he wants it more.

Based on what you've said about Bruno and his improvement around other dogs I would say he sees you as the pack leader. Often that type of aggression is because he saw himself as the leader/protector of the pack. Once you started taking that position he feels the need to protect the pack less and less.

 

Checked into this hotel in So CA last week and it was 81 degrees. Same hotel, same day one week later it's 49 degrees. Sorry for mixing your weather last week Frau.

I will admit that my girlfriend has never been a go-getter, and that it is ridiculous that I am expecting her to do the things I would do in her situation, but it is extremely hard for me to listen to her complain about her pay without getting angry. management created a power vacuum in her department, and she didn't step up and start acting like the leader. she doesn't even have to do that... she could simply update her resume and start applying, and she would immediately make at least as much as I do.

 

I even broke out the math, showed her that if she had been on the ball when they gave her a 5% raise this summer, she'd have made an extra $5k by now. she started crying, tells me she is hesitant to quit because she has so many friends that work at her company. I just changed the subject.

yeah I think that was a time where she wanted "listening boyfriend" instead of "fixing boyfriend." I could be wrong, it's hard to tell sometimes...

she wants listening boyfriend in all scenarios where the solution requires her to change her routine/habits. I don't enjoy having to be the one to tell her the truth, but no one else in her life will do it for her. shitty comp / getting passed over is a signal. it doesn't mean you aren't a capable or talented person, just that you have to decide whether this is an acceptable role and pay grade for the long haul.

 

she tells me these stories about how the new hire in her department (who is completely new to the role) is already refusing to take direction, delegating to her, etc. I cannot help but get angry for her. I just want to take a few days of vacation, shadow my girlfriend, and give her signals for when she ought to be telling people to **** themselves.
