Re: 2018 Baseball Season

The Red Sox are currently celebrating the clinching of the AL East. I'm generally of the opinion that celebrating winning a division is pretty lame. But celebrating winning a division on the infield of Yankee Stadium is pretty cool.

Re: 2018 NFL Season

I'm not allowed to eat those Ramen noodles any more. My sons (the Health Nazis) say they have too much sodium in them. Turns out you were stacking little cups of Heart Attack. Shame on you.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

So it turns out my barber is not the only one who knows how to cut hair. The kid who cut my hair today did a nice job and I gave him a nice tip.

Mrs psu_dad: No one gives two poops about your hair cut.
Me: Fine.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Hopefully it's the same for you!

No. It's not the same.

Maybe I'll just go with a Mohawk. That seems simple enough. And then I probably wouldn't have to attend any more meetings.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Major catastrophe. My barber of 40 years cancelled an appointment a couple of weeks ago. His daughter (who runs the place now) told me his bad knee was killing him and he had to go home. So I call today to make another appointment and I'm told he had knee replacement surgery and will be out a couple...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Sounds like they were a great company to work for. All things considered, they were. They paid their people very well and gave them interesting work to do. But they expected them to produce (or else). There weren't a lot of older guys there. The pressure to meet deadlines was exciting when you're 2...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

My parents wanted me to be a teacher.

So did mine. Based on stories my SIL (a teacher) tells me, I made the right choice. Right about now, I'd probably be finishing up a long prison sentence for tossing a student out a window.

Re: Random Thoughts Again

So, ratted you out and got you a raise. I bet you have never forgiven him. I don't believe that was his intention. One co-worker I confided in told me that the headhunter, having lost me as a client, could have been trying to ingratiate himself with my company by giving them a heads up on an employ...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

Back in the Olden Days (pre-internet) hiring a "headhunter" was a pretty common way to find a job. They did the legwork and set you up with interviews. I used one once. I SPECIFICALLY told him to contact me before contacting any company on my behalf. I was looking for a job on the sly and ...

Re: 2018 NFL Season

How many days to spring training?

The 2019 Spring Training reporting dates are still TBA. But give or take a few days, pitchers and catchers should be reporting around 2/13/2019 and the other players a week later. So. just 5 months. Practically the blink of an eye.
