That's to bad but it sounds like the compressor is worn out, like an old truck with 250,000 miles on it, doesn't want to haul the load anymore. If it's any consolation 21 years is a long time for a refrigerator.

Dammit Bill , just made me think that my fridge is 30 years old.

Dammit Bill, someone from high school found me on facebook and insists I have a banjo they lent me. I remember that I returned it, and then rented one for a short period of time until my parents said, "NO BANJO!" I remember that it wasn't even the property of the person who lent it to me, that it belonged to their step mother, and there was drama around me having it at all, since it had sentimental value for the step mom. All these years, this person thought I still had it, and now insists I return it since the step mother thinks I still have it? I don't own a banjo, don't play banjo, and haven't kept one in hiding all these years. Really weird, and she expects me to bring it to San Jose when she comes to town for a wedding.

DAMMIT BILL!!!
this is so stupid I don't want to embarrass myself by posting in the Fuck thread. lets just say, I have two days off without pay until the drug test results come back. Maybe I'm not cut out to drive a forklift. No one hurt, no serious damage. big fucking blind spot. It's like being fined though and I'm not certain I deserve that.

Fair enough. I was shown this as part of my training* which is a more appropriate time.



*It was Elevated Work Platform training not forklift though

Yes. There's something about believing in a lost banjo for decades...

Of course, there's always Kevin's cat that comes to mind.

Dammit Bill, that's a sweet song the cat and banjo are working on. I never would have thought it.

but Bill, dammit, why didn't you remind me to sign up for the village chores on the official village internet sign up, instead of just getting approved for early arrival in January or whenever that was by saying I was volunteering, and being vouched for by the head of the volunteering job group, since not signing up has cancelled my pass, and shrunk my burn from 5 days to three? Something I and the rest of my camp it seems, just found out about in the camp newsletter. Bill, thanks for the heads up dammit.
