Oh wow (((Fufa))) !!!

Appendicitis is never good but, some times are better than others.

My dear husband, for example, ruptured his appendix at my little sister's wedding. :? But, since he was booked for a trip to the Soviet Union the following week, that was better timing than it could have been!

And, I remember one winter I got a call to transfer a child to our hospital for an appendectomy, horrible snowstorm in progress, it took 8 hours to move that kid 7 miles. I was fucking frantic and can't imagine what the parents were going through.

So, congrats on being in the right place for that emergency. I hope lil' bro bounces back real quick. 8)

dang, fuck, Fufa! like MDF said,........good place to be, if it's gotta happen!
and, good they "Got on it".

And TK:
I know I'm down the page a ways.......but, I can't get your fucking situation off my mind.
I have no advice, nothing better than the great advice given.

But, read all this, and know, a lot of us here, really, really fucking care!
When panic sets in, try thinking of some of the hilarity here, and know we're right behind you! (probably making faces and fart noises)
Look for a happy place, and eplaya shenanigans, to lighten your mood.
You're a good fucking person, and, we all know it.

Fuck, Fufa.
And MDF--did your husband go to the USSR? Because abdominal incisions, at least based on mine, are horrible, even when you're in no danger anymore.

No, Fishy, they sent somebody else on that trip and he stayed home for a while. He was a mess.

My uncle actually got appendicitis 2 days into an long trip in Thailand a while back. Got it removed there, then continued with his trip as if nothing was wrong. He scarred real bad from not observing the 6 weeks of bedrest, but he just thinks it makes him look badass.

Bro came out of surgery fine btw. :)

Fuck Fufa, poor guy, hope he is recovering well.

aarrrgghhh, I had a whole fucking post typed out and thought better of it. Let's just say I have my fucking docs in order and have an appointment at 9:30 Friday (my fucking day off!) with the HR manager to appeal the write up. I have a VERY good case. However, no matter what I don't see this ending well for me. Even if I get it fucking lifted I still work for her. Just a fucking matter of time.

I'm so sorry, TK. That just fucking blows. Fufa, hang in there. Good thoughts out to you and yours. Y'all make my "fucks" seem petty in comparison (That's not gonna stop me, mind you).

It's the week before finals. I have two papers to write. I should be in class right now and I have the FUCKING flu. Like 6-years-old, sleep-all-the-time, vomit-your-guts-up, running-a-fever, fucking flu. And my fucking birthday is fucking Sunday. Fuck!

Thank you for letting me whine.

Fuck TK, I hope your appeal works. I only have one piece of mind-calming advise from my years of customer service to use while you're talking to them:

Say "Thank You", Think "Fuck You"

It really helps. I've used it for decades quite successfully.

FUCK, Tamara, I will be thinking about you on Friday, your "day off," fuck, I have been spending my "days off" running back and forth from my Mom's, I might have mentioned that she has fucking Alzheimers Disease??? My dear dear brother is the only one she listens to, and she's been staying at his house (he has a wonderful wife) for half of every week since October.

Did I mention somewhere here that my brother's been sick? Yeah, and one of the fucking doctors he consulted this week told him his cancer is "potentially survivable." Of course that doc is recruiting for a clinical trial at NIH. FUCK! Anyway, today I spent the day repeating, over and over, to my mother, that, no she can't go stay at my brother's right now, he's really sick, yes Mom it's cancer, no Mom it doesn't look good. No Mom we just talked to him on the phone. Yes Mom you spoke to him. No Mom there's nothing we can do for him right now except, let him get on with this while we take care of ourselves. No Mom, he's really pretty sick, he won't be coming to get you this week...

FUCK!!!

Fuck.

3.5 year old laptop with the beginning of a project on it whitescreened. Look up the problem, its known issue, that the company knew about, involving defective parts, that they failed to inform people about, and failed to bother to recall. INSTEAD, there was a lawsuit last year that I was also unaware of (and also didn't have problems with the computer then), but they were only doing free repairs on laptops that were bought less than 2 years before. So I wouldn't have qualified then, and I definitely won't now. I paid $2k for that thing, and it was filled with faulty hardware! FUCK FUCK FUCK. I hope I can recover my files.

Fuck.

Fucking hot Water under the house is fucking up... but that's not the fuck.

Shelli calls a plumber - who quotes her SEVEN AND A HALF GRAND to replace it. I think... What the Fuck...

Then I get home and read the estimate - that fucking asshole have here a gloom and doom about how the entire house was gonna fall apart plumbing-wise, how he had to repipe the whole fucking house (with fucking copper), and all this other needless work...

So I call the home warranty people, who apparently aren't out to try to sell us a house repipe, but replace the fucking water heater.

I can't stand fuckers who see a woman and think they can scare her into a fucking 7 grand fucking bill... because he scares the shit outta her and tells her she HAS to... when all we need is the fucking HWH replaced... MotherFUCKERS - $7500 for a fucking water heater replacement... ARRGHHHHH!

He gave her a high price cause he didn't want to do the job and she hired him anyway, happens all the fucking time. I hope you at least got a 7 year or more HWH. Sorry for your loss. At least copper has no PCB's.
