Sometimes people thank me for things at work. Specifically I get members of the Safety Committee who see me doing something properly - which many people don't - so they thank me.
It's not just the head Safety guy who is a legit authority. They recently expanded the safety committee - and basically brought on a bunch of safety narcs - who are expected to keep an eye on us riff-raff. They are simply peers. They are not bosses or anything. They are just other shlubs who, for whatever reason, signed on to be safety narcs.
Anyway today I had one of them say to me, "Thank you for unharnessing for your cross-aisle pick."
There is a guy who often sits with me at lunch who uses a spoon for a knife. Literally. Like he might have a couple of pork chops and he goes at them with a spoon and fork. He cuts with the edge of the spoon.
Someone asked him about it once and he explained his reasoning and he seemed pretty proud of himself. Like he feels he has innovated something.
I have watched him a bit and I'll just say this: it does not make me want to dabble with using spoons for knives.
Lol that ain't shit estimates of 6k dead. South the border we just killed them outright. And instead of a day we gave them a head start on nationwide casino gambling.. but that allowance is basically over.
As my work shift is Sunday-to-Thursday, today is the end of my work week. Those of us on that shift will often say "Happy Friday" to each other thru the day.
But then sometimes the regular folk will overhear that and it will make them happy for about a second and a half - really? it's Friday? I was thinking it was . . . oh. That's when they realize what's going on. Then they are bummed.
