A Welcome Back To A Coworker

This is dedicated to a coworker of mine who just returned to work from knee replacement surgery. It didn't look like he was ever going to come back from it and he does still have a limp but his movement seems to have improved. I myself have struggled with knee problems albeit not as bad as his but this kind of recovery is quite inspiring to me. Welcome back Glenn.

They Just Keep Pushing Me...

Time for another workplace rant this one centered on both my assistant manager and the service manager (#3 manager). This blog has been the host of many rants about my store manager Mr Slash and Burn but Mr Slash and Burn was transferred to another store location in the same district and his replacement who I used to work for at that same store is actually pretty cool. The assistant manager who I got along great with also changed as he was also transferred out but not to the same store. This ass

The Number Two Priority

As of today I have been here 2 years and I am sorry to say that this anniversary post has a slightly less optimistic tone than last years except for the subtle poo joke in the title. If you are a bit curious you can read that one for reference.   http://mlpforums.com/blog/456/entry-7861-not-another-anniversary-post/   I have done a lot of thinking over the last several months or so especially since I lost my temper in this thread not too long ago.   http://mlpforums.com/topic/111697-regard

RECEIVING Some Potential Good News

This will be quite the rare blogpost from me, one where I talk about work without going into rant mode. As those of you who read my blog posts know I am a dairy clerk at a grocery store, not a fate I want to be lifelong but one I am stuck with at least for now. But I am being presented with an opportunity I may never get again if I do not seize it. I am strongly considering becoming a Receiver and because the current Receiver at my store is likely going to be retiring soon I have the best chance

Vacation and Back To School

Starting this coming Tuesday I am returning to school so I requested my vacation from work that week so I wouldn't have to worry about work for the first week I come back and my request was granted. My vacation technically starts tomorrow but since I am always off Sundays anyway I might as well call today the start. Today has pretty much been a typical lazy Sunday for me for the most part but it is tonight I am looking forward to the most. Tonight it is John Cena vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE worl

Picket Lines and Opening Signs

It has been a lot busier at work lately than is usually the case for this time of year for me which on one hand is good because I need the money because I am getting my drivers license soon and though I will already have a car (getting it fixed up now) I will still of course have to pay insurance and gas and stuff once I do get it. But it is also not so great because I have been back for maybe a month or so from a 3 month long knee injury. I overdid it on Saturday and the rain sure didn't help s

Opening Day In Hell

Yesterday was my first, well technically my second day I was opening dairy clerk at work since I came back from my most recent knee injury (not counting the other one because it was only 4 hours). Monday is one of the toughest days to open for because it is a 2 day wall load (yogurt, cheese and everything that isn't covered by the milk load) and I get in most of my add items making my load more like a 4 day load. Of course things tended to go from bad to worse the very second I actually walked i

A Reflection On Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fans To Changes and Reboots

This was originally typed as a response to the following blog post by Rockin Rarity   http://mlpforums.com/blog/255/entry-12464-sailor-moons-comeback-a-fan-reaction-to-fan-reactions/     I have been a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since I was 6 years old and the reaction of Sailor Moon fans to this kind of reminds me of the reactions of some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans to the classic cartoon. The original comic was very dark, gritty and often fairly violent in one of the earliest i

Theories On The Jedi And Sith Codes

I just saw these interesting Youtube videos from this guy posing an alternate take on the Jedi and Sith philosophies saying that the Jedi aren't as perfect as the movies often portray and that there are parts of the Sith Code that actually make a lot of sense even if they are violated by a lot of Sith.   http://youtu.be/nUrWyPJqeSk   http://youtu.be/fZfwW3EcIDo

A Delightful Mess

I tried coming up with all sorts of clever names for this but none of them have done my situation the slightest bit of justice. To make a long story short I have been out or work due to a work related knee injury since late March and even though all my other knee injuries have all been work related this current one isn't counted as a workers comp issue because the aggravation technically happened off the job site even though I had problems even before that incident. I had to apply for state disa

The Difference Between Simplicity And Dumbed Down

In my last blog post http://mlpforums.com/blog/456/entry-11293-kids-shows-vs-mature-shows-and-the-double-standards-in-quality/ I talked about the double standards in regard to expectations in quality of "mature shows" and "kids shows" but one argument I would like to get into is one of the most common talking points used in the "its just for kids" argument and it is that the plot must be simple in order for children to understand and appreciate it. I have heard this particular point repeated man
