    I wish it was a cool story. I was putting together one of these at the office. Had the hardwood top on the floor, bolting the legs to it. The other set of legs fell over and smashed it between it and the top. I didn’t even see it coming. Hit it just right. Total fluke scenario

    I write this, to you dear reader - from under the park bench which is now my home.  My spectacular inversion of forecasts and ill-fated decision to bet everything upon those outcomes sees me ‘exploring new approaches to life’.    

    Unperturbed I go again.  Back stronger and there’s some stonking fixtures ….

    Saturday

    Chelsea v Man City - oooh, top of the table clash and Pep got done good and proper by Tommy T 3 times last season, including most ignominiously the CL Final. The lunchtime kick off will flatten those out a bit but a real tough one. The contrarian in me says 1-2 and the title race is fully on.

    Man Utd v Villa - will the real Man Utd please stand up?  Misfits or genius’ (genii?) Anyway 3-1.

    Everton v Norwich - the Canaries have been deployed to hazardous mine shaft called the Premier League.  Nothing here for them despite the Toffee’s hap hazard start to the season. 2-0

    Leeds v West Ham - a hooligan classic of the 80’s (Google ICF and see for yourself) and a close match in store on the pitch.  Antonio back for the Hammers means a lot.  Sooner or later thought it’ll click for Leeds. 1-1.

    Burnley v Leicester - by all accounts the Foxes should have beaten the filthy Seagulls last time but they didn’t - buffoons.   The Clarets are still looking for their first win and I just don’t see it here.  Maybe a draw but Brendan’s boys will be smarting so I’m going 0-1. 

    Watford v Newcastle - what the heck are the rotten Hornets doing in 11th place?  Oh yes, they got a free 3 points at Norwich last week. And I don’t trust calamity club Toon to do the decent thing either.  Fingers crossed for a bore draw then, 1-1.

    Brentford v Liverpool, starry eyed dreams of a top club scalp come to nothing for the perky Bees. Business as usual for Big Jurgy 0-2.

    Stoke will be eying three easy points at home to Hull.  Probably said this before, but if you ever journey back to the mother land, don’t go to Hull.  Here to help.  2-0  The dream is alive @Eoin

    Sunday

    Southampton v Wolves, er - well, um - maybe, er.  1-1?

    Arsenal v Spurs - the north London derby.  They are six places apart but just 3 points, narrowing in recent weeks as their respective form has been transposed.  Just how good is either team? Who knows but the stakes are higher than usual for this game of great import. Tough to call so a splinters in the backside 1-1 it is.

    Monday

    Ooooh, hello - here we go; the A23 Derby,  El Gatwicko, ‘it’s not derby it’s a rivalry’ Palace v the filthy Seagulls.  The coastal upstarts besmirch the glorious utopia of (near) Croydon and what a time to arrive.  The hosts have had the tougher start by playing the league leaders three weeks on the bounce but showing spirit and flair. The media darlings have been caressed along at every turn.  A real barometer game for both sides as mid-table mediocrity is their shared stated aim.  Wilf will be fizzing for this, but (and I feel hollow to say this) a draw seem most likely. 2-2.

    There you have my friends,  I am off to get some food out of that nice bin over there. 

    All I can say is "I"m sorry".

    I'm sorry I was busy moving my son from San Antonio to Denver in a UHaul truck this weekend and didn't even have time to respond to your post.  For the record, I would not have predicted the Man U debacle.

    And mostly sorry for the heartbreak you must be feeling right now based on the A23 derby result.  I'm at the Denver airport and I came on here to congratulate you on a famous victory based on the lead in the 4th minute of stoppage time.  Before I could complete my post, I rechecked the score - you know, just to confirm the victory - and saw the disastrous result.

    Fellow eggheads, @CPFC1905 needs our unconditional support right now.  I know @Eoin is there for him.

    I am a not a No Fun League fan until the playoffs.  However, as posted above this is great entertainment independent of the game.
    Supposedly the brothers have agreed to do this for 10 of the 18 MNF games.  This is the third straight.  I have not cracked the code for the remaining seven but It will be required watching here.

    @Foghorn @Eoin  
    losing would have been intolerable.  A draw would have been acceptable, but not in that fashion.  It’s such an emotional match I am mainly just pleased it’s done.  
    Eyes down now until the next international break when things will start to level out.

    Sitting outside eating "lunch" weighing the pros and cons of a job offer I have in Texas, which I'm seriously considering...  1/3 the hours with same pay.

    It would be a hell of a commute, (10 hours) but they are willing to let me knock all my shifts out in one block vs spreading them out evenly. Which ultimately means I'll be home more than i am now.
    Free room and board in apartment during work interval 

    Yesterday I kinda had my fill with my co-workers. And told them to stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

    Backstory - working on the upcoming schedules and was told well I don't need any holidays off because I don't have kids to spend it with like they need to and for me to ask is selfish ...
    At that point I was tired and already I'll from a bad shift.. and told them...so you're saying my parents, my girlfriend and her kid don't count for anything at all? I'm selfish for wanting to have our Christmas tradition of smoking a prime rib with my dad...? Or opening presents with someone I love when they're family is in town...They just kinda stared at me blankly...

    Told them to get F#$&3d and walked out of the meeting. We're supposed to meet again this week.

    And to be clear I wasn't even asking for an entire block off just either day before or day after ...but that's too much..

    Takes alot to really get me really pissed off to the point i show my ass but that did it...

  • ColbyLangColbyLang Posts: 1,487
    @DuckDogDr, same money and less hours? Hello Texas. The commute will suck, but you’ll get used to it. Being away from the significant other will be tough as well depending on how serious the relationship is.

    @ColbyLang
    Based on what they're offering I would be looking at 90 hours vs 225 . Commute would suck.
    Unless something drastic happens my gf not going anywhere.  She's a keeper; we'll have been together 2 years this December. She tolerates all my hunting obsessions and crazy friends

    Right now i barely see her anyway since we are short staffed and 2/3 of the co-workers I have suck and are lazy..
    14 -15 hour shift at work then ..I see her when she cooks me breakfast..I sleep 5-6 hours and then she gets me up..feeds me supper and I go back in for another 14-15 hours.
    That's our routine 3-4 days a week then I'm usually off 2-3 days and which we spend one of those days together at my place before I go back to the grind....

    If things really are going to be how they're advertised I would actually get to see her a lot more in the mong run

    Why not take here with you and move to the new job? It might take a ring but you said that she’s a keeper.

    Assuming @The_Buffalo can see who the flaggot is…may be it’s his desperate attempt to get noticed and removed?

  • GulfcoastguyGulfcoastguy Posts: 4,511
    I bet the flaggot is one of the leading personalities of the forum. Or at least one of their troll accounts. Possibly flagging their own posts.
  • I would like nothing more than @The_Buffalo to reveal whomever is doing all of the flagging. Or really just to change the Vanilla settings to restore the ability of everyone to be able to see who is flagging or disagreeing with them.  How about it, Rob?

    The buffalo doesn’t care about flags. Witness the moron who flags every single post by john or carey, regardless of subject. 

    I say, have at it. Flag war!

    maybe the buffalo will realize that without the flagger’s name being listed (like it used to be) it’s a useless option. 




  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 28,076
    why even have a flag option, if theres really a problem theres a report abuse button that goes straight to the buffalo. i know that works having reported myself before, its quick too
