I Called In Sick Today


Recommended Posts

When I read his post, I just assumed she took the kids. I would be more surprised if she had left the kids and he didn't mention that.
Hm. Fair point.
You're probably right, I was just throwing it out. 2200-2800 is probably a better range.
LET'S JUST SAY 2500I had an oreo blizzard the other day. Delicious. Are the chili dogs any good?

and after 3 days, he is risen!

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

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

Ridiculous. People are different speedz!ps. I wouldn't say the chili dogs are... good. But they are cheap, which makes them much better. (On Friday's in Iowa you can get THREE for TWO dollars.)

brv, the dairy queen here in my town is ridiculously expensive. I never eat there because of this, but I broke down a couple months ago and got one of those hot and spicy burgers they had and my damn order was over ten bucks. that's silly.edit: I think I started this post intending to ask brv a question. not sure what it was.

Define "talking".
emailing to pass the time during the day. I've spent maybe a few hundred hours with this girl, so I know her pretty well, and we have good conversation. I never hit on her or anything, mostly just make fun of her, friendly banter. I know she likes me quite a lot... she had this massive smile when I showed up at the branch randomly yesterday. whether this is just friendly or potentially something more in the future, I don't know.

What I can tell you from this post is that your DQ is in a "Territory Operator" area, which means that the TO sets all the prices for the area, and not DQ international. It's the problem that DQ has. They gave all the power to the TO's back in the 50's and now they can't control the look of the store or the menu or pricing. It's why some DQ's look awesome, and some look like the shed behind Bean's shop.Where McD's can say, "this item is on the dollar menu or you're shut down". DQ has to say, "We want you to sell this Chili dog for $1, and the TO can say, **** YOU, we are going to sell spaghetti and blankets for $20.", and DQ international has no power to stop them. It's a huge problem for them, and they are always trying to buy out the remaining TO's.That sandwich is actually supposed to be called The Flamethrower, but the one thing DQ can do to try to force TO's to sell is not allow them to use official names or official signage from DQ inside the store. That's why your local joint has to call it the "hot and spicy". And the last I knew, it was supposed to be $3.49 for the sandwich, $5.99 for the meal.Sorry.

busy little saturday in here. strat if you're going to overhaul the diet you might as well hop on the treadmill for ten minutes a day. really double down on the weight loss.and as for this lady you might as well just email her every once in a while with some stuff you know she'd dig. you want to be in view and on the mind but no so close you get too deep into the friend zone. maybe you tell her about a new romance and see how she reacts. i dont know.

sometimes near the end of the workday, I will start getting a hunger headache, but that's not a big deal. I guess it kind of just blew my mind after doing it for a few days, when I realized that I really don't need to eat much to do what I do every day.I had two mcdoubles for lunch today. 780 calories, inexplicably worse than the double quarter pounder. in total, what I used to order was just shy of 1500. eesh.

huh, that's weird because I just called it the hot and spicy because I couldn't remember the name, but it actually was called the flamethrower. I actually thought they converted to the corporate dq a few years ago because they started carrying all the national menu items, but they charge super high prices and the inside is still straight out of 1954. how is that possible? and now that I think about it, I remember getting the burger because I had a hankerin' for an old fashioned style drive in burger, and it wasn't anything like that. fuckin' frauds.

Well that is weird. I'm not going to lie. DQ has been historically overpriced. IDQ has been trying lately to have a special-of-the-day that's a lower price to drive in customers.

Speedz:We found this puppy along the highway last night, and I was just hoping you could provide some info. It's a boy. It's young, and has a really short tail.photo2jr.jpgphoto1wv.jpg

God I hope they have the same deal here.

Heh.

Knowing very little, I see this as your best option:Over the course of a week or so, email her less and less. Either she says nothing and the friendship is over as the emails stop completely, or she legitimately cares about you and will ask you why you've been responding less. You say, "I know this is ridiculous because you have a serious boyfriend, but I've had a thing for you for a while and at this point I feel like I have to back off from our friendship." Her response will tell you where to go next.

Did you not see that we already have an exercise plan? A realistic one.

That does seem odd.

Forget what I said about the cat, DON'T euthanize this one right away.What kind of info can I provide? It's cute as hell, probably 4-6 months old, probably some kind of lab mix. There are probably rescue groups and/or shelters in your area that would take him off your hands, he's very adoptable. If you might keep him, get him to the vet as soon as possible so they can deworm and vaccinate him right away. They'll also want to check him for a microchip in case he was owned and lost.

Kids gone as well. I really don't drink when the kids are around, unless there is someone there to drive them if there is an emergency. If it was just me and the kids and I had a hankering, I might have a couple beers but that's about it.I think I just took advantage of having a house to myself and had some buddies over during that time as well.I tell you what, it's definitely weird. Pretty sure that is the longest time in years I have had alone. It's cool, but I wouldn't want it to be permanent. I could not imagine being a bachelor at this point of my life.

what? no, this, this is horrible advice. telling a woman your feelings? what kind of dumbass shit is that? you gotta be aloof. do kind of like speedz says and slow down on the responses. ask her something, have her respond, then ignore her. fuck with her head. that's what them bitches really want. then make an excuse to get up with her at night away from her boyfriend and when you see her just say "damn baby you the sexiest bitch I have EVER seen. come on over here and give me some of that sweet pootie." no way to fail.

Muther f.
I was talking about the girl plan, not the exercise plan. the exercise plan is pretty straightforward and I don't differ with anything you said.shake's plan works with some girls. this one hears that routinely in so many words from so many guys.

I agree with speedz that the dog is a Lab cross. My guess is crossed with this (or something very similar);drahthaar_nic06.jpgdrahthaarside.jpgIt's a Drahthaar, a dog with german origins btw...So Strat, what is your short term goal with this girl? If you're in the "shit or get off the pot" stage, speedz plan is a good one.If not, and you want to stay friends short or long term, it's not. Sounds like you're not able/willing to just be friends though so...yeah, good luck with that.I didn't know anybody went to DQ for anything other than blizzards/ice cream. Brv's description of how their franchise system works is...awful. Wonder how long ago the idiot that came up with that plan got fired.

short-term, I wanna know if I'm friendzoned. I'm just not willing* to spend the next x months talking to this girl if I'm not getting a shot once she wises up to the fact that her boyfriend isn't going places in life. I gotta say, vb's answer just makes sense to me.*the last time I felt this way about a girl was in 2007 (ms. grey), the one prior to that was in 2005. it destroys my peace of mind. I had like three years of solitude after LG, and I don't remember ever thinking on a friday/saturday night, "I should be out meeting someone" or, "I wonder what she's doing." If I could go to that and still keep in touch, that'd be perfect, but I don't know if I can do it.

First off, I cannot convey how upset I am about not involving my hundreds of anxious followers in today's activities. Had a flat on the trailer, no spare. Two hours finding a shop to fix. Massive thunderstorm after that, spent more time under bridges avoiding the hail. Loaded fifteen hundred pounds of cypress siding in the rain, by this time compleeeetly intoxicated...So me and two assistants... The wife wisely stayed home... Pulled into the track terribly late. Like six races late"alright guys... We're gonna walk in, grab a beer, take a piss, bet one race, then leave""sounds good..."(ten minutes later)"beans... You really putting a hundred on that longshot?""why not...day can't get any worse""true""why number seven?""that was how many hail stones that hit the windshield before we got to the bridge""you counted?""I'm weird"(looks at odds)"tell ya one thing... If that bastard comes in you'll have to have an armed escort back to the truck""nope... All the way to lady godivas in Tulsa""hope so"Stay tuned to twitter for the results....I'll be ringside at the stage if anyone needs me

Seriously, under no circumstances should you tell her how you feel. What good could possibly come from that? She is going to leave her serious boyfriend for you? You will a) totally ruin the relationship and b) throw all the power into her hands. Terrible, terrible idea. Only works in romantic comedies.
