What is an internet neighbor? Does he have an IP address next to yours?
That reminds me of a true story. We had some property in Texas we bought because it was inexpensive and near a big river. The homeowners association sent us a letter that stated we had to mow and clean up our vacant lot. Of course we lived in Florida now so we didn't want to drive all the way over there to pick up some branches, rake the leaves, etc. There would be a fine if we did not comply. We asked if we could pay someone to do it for us and they "knew a guy" that could do it for $450. So we drove there in the winter and made a weekend project out of it so we wouldn't miss any work. Got the job done and had a large fire to burn all the leaves and sticks and slept in a freezing ass van as the weather dipped into the 20's. Oh, now for the story. There was a neighborhood dog that was hanging around when we sat by the fire and ate our bologna and cheese sandwiches and ate potato chips and Doritos. We offered some chips and Doritos to him and he wasn't interested. We ate a lot of sandwiches though as we worked our asses off on the rush job that was quite a bit of manual labor. The next day, the dog was back and we again offered him some snacks and he looked at us like wft, I ain't eating that garbage. Later that day I had to take a crap in the woods. Biggest bologna and cheese crap ever. I even dug a hole and covered it with leaves when I was done. Then I see that damned nosy dog going to where I was leaving to check out what I did. That fooking dog started eating *my* shit and I tried to stop him but he even growled at me like he wanted it that bad. Although gross, we laughed about it and even gave him a nickname: Poop Doggy Dog.
Why do people drive like assholes on steroids on Thanksgiving weekend?
Because their dawg ate some yummy dawgshit laced with scorched bacon grease in the grass at the rest area and then got back in the fambly car & laid a deuce around Lake City-- you gotta git home fast when that happens!
Doesn’t soak in as well.
Butt hurt dog pile.
Hey Tony. I guess my probation period has ended.
When you need to run to town real quick, but it takes you longer than it should to figure out what to drive.....
Pfffttt First world problems........
My first choice.
The hits just keep on coming
Probably some loser that needs to go back to prison as winter and colder temps are upon us. Three hots and a cot. I hope so anyhow...
The Archetype Hazy IPA at the trailhead bar in Black Mountain NC sure goes a long way to fighting off the snow that’s coming
Love that bar, good food and beer, what more do you need
Be sure to visit Pisgah brewing! And if you’re hungry you have to eat at the foothills butcher shop in town, nothing better in the area!
I’ve been to foothills. It’s fit to eat for sure!
I’m leaving here in the morning headed to Old Fort then Charlotte tomorrow night. After that, Atlanta and Peachtree City. It’ll be icy in the morning when I go over the hill.
Been a favorite area of mine since I read a series of books based in Black Mountain back in 09
Well, now y'all have gone and done it--I've got a few new places to check out next time I find myself in Black Mountain. While on my annual pilgrimage to Ol' Virginny, I usually stay on the BRP through Asheville--but Black Mountain would only be a ~15 mile detour, and it sounds like it'd be worth it, for a couple reasons
There is a brand new Hampton I’ve been staying at when I’m in the area. Much better than staying in Asheville on Tunnel rd.
I don't know if I can post up here or not, as I'm out of flatistan. Just tell me and I'll leave. I suffered through the 95 degree days with 99 percent humidity. People I work with in the north were all like well it's cold here. Phuck you. I have winter clothes, you can put them on, working in my birthday suite wouldn't have helped at all down there. I got sent to northern east coast. "They are behind, workinig 7-12s, bs, bs, and more bs. They, my bosses, cause you can't have just one boss, tell me I don't have time to stop home n grab gear. They don't offer to buy meand my coworker 1000 in gear, company credit card, not personal moneys, which is what everything costs. Jackets and under layers, to have at least two sets and be comfortable. Get the bike loaded, which involved buying ramps and a minor mishap, cause I don't load a bike. I ride. Loading is for pussies. So I already went outside my standards. First word out of my mouth to my coworker, phuck them we are grabbing our gear. Stopped by his place in the lair of dragon, and mine in greater flugistan. All in all a max of four hours on the whole trip.
Four hours from the job. Boss on this one calls and says, hey how is it going... He didn't expect us until monday, meanwhile it's still light out on saturday and we are four hours away. Monday? Are you kidding me? No we will be there before 9 tonite. So he says I don't have a room setup here, stop where you are and that will give me time. Over 60 degree temp difference, for no reason at all we didn't have time to grab our gear, and weren't expected to get there until over a day later than we would have been with grabbing our gear.
Now this is all what happened. That pos boss in fl knew I was planning a couple month trip to get home. Ride around, eventually end up at families place in the dragon. Order stuffs like four season gear n tire chains, watch the weather, cross the phucking dragon.
This is epic to me. It even gets it's own paragraph to tell you it's important. I mean the phucking dragon, or the tail of, get to Tn, visit with more family.
I don't own a car, everyone I work with knows this. I like old cars, mainly cause I live in a chitty place that requires me to replace stupid bs sensors every time I inspect the car. Which is also every year. There is a loophole if I have a 95 or older. Can't find something I want that old around home. So it was my plan to spend some time in tn and buy sumthin old n not rotten. No need to jump threw a hoop, just register it to my family. Drive it home. Send plates back and transfer reg to me. Probably a full paint job, but it's worth it to me.
Coworkers and that boss know this. I hear that boss and others saying we can't keep employee's. Really? It has nothing to do with the fact that you treat people like crap. Will I come back next year, you ask. Of course. Just like everyone up north was working 7-12s. Btw they are not. 7-4:30 is not a 12 hour day. If you think it is your math skills are as bad as your people skills.
If you already agreed with me that this is bs. Check this out, the boss down yonder tried to jip me out of thanksgiving. I told him when I first got down there that there was no way I was missing it. Than I hear him talking to other people saying I would be there. I never had my good nature phucked with so much. And since I am capable of anything, all he has me do is grease n grout bitch work. Metal work experience, no we will put the new guy on metal work. You can gease this bearing. It only takes ten tubes of grease. Thats no lie. No fishers story. I don't know that it was ten. It was a case so maybe 6 or 8, i think 8 though, plus two. Grout n grease bitch for 16/hr. I can make 14 at micky dees in the town I am on now. Yea I don't imagine you keep many employees.
I haven't even taken a sip since i started writing this. Back to drinking now. The more hungover I am for work the less it bothers me that I am there.
