Another day in paradise

Okay, so I am working today while it's raining outside. How do I know that? It's also raining inside. Today was also the day for our monthly safety class, which is mandated by whomever does this in the federal government. The good thing about this is it is an hour away from the job. The bad thing about this it takes an otherwise productive hour out of my life. I do get some exercise during this, though. My neck gets a good workout during these meetings where we get to watch videos that we watch so often that we can say the dialog. These are important but I wish we could at least see them in a room that has a little better circulation.

Time for work to end. I get to the parking out and the weather is betwixt and between. It doesn't know if it wants to rain or snow. Ah, March in Northeast Ohio.

While in the WIXYmobile, I notice an idiot light flashing on my dash. I need oil, so off to Evil Big Box Store #2966. While there I also got a Mrs74WIXYgrad survival kit-Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and a bouquet of flowers. Next off to Circle K for some gas as I was sucking fumes, which gave me the opportunity to put the oil purchased at afore mentioned #2966. I still had to walk in the yuck to go into the store to wash the oil off my hands, which leads me to my next question:

If the sign in the restroom says "Employees must wash hands," and I end up washing my own hands, it's false advertising?

I had to get a nonsense post out of my system. Have a great day everyone.

cliff-who'd have thunk we would be happy to see gas for ONLY 319 and deisel for UNDER 400? btw, when you wash the oil off of your hands, you ARE an employee following the county health department directives. you don't have to be THEIR employe. LOL.

And an aside to "coach" Liquid: I did not partake in the Reeses. And this morning was 148/84

Pat, every other living being at the WIXYranch is better taken care of than the major breadwinner there. I can attest to that.

The WIXYmobile has a leak in a front seal.
