broke my fucking left foot and had to have surgery and screws put in last week. Sucks being on crutches. Sucks not being able to stand up in the shower. On the good side, I whined a little yesterday when the surgeon did a wound check and got a refill on the percocet prescrip. A perc and a beer and I have the best dreams.........

Speaking of wild Alaska, when the fuck is the movie version of Into the Wild being released?!? Its one of the few movies I am really interested in seeing.

What the fuck do I have to do to get a genius grant? I wanna blow it all on booze and women...! (Will settle for one or the other.)

Fucking hormones, anxiety, muddled thoughts, depression. Fuck, I keep wanting to talk to someone, but there's nobody but my cat, and he's heard it already. I have only to look forward to going to work and kissing the public's ass, and I just want to tell them to fuck off. I'm having one of those nobody loves me days. Fuck, I hate hormone days.

Well, I just lost my fucking dream job.

My brother was Head Chef, they said they had had too many fucking complaints about his food and his attitude, so they fucking sacked the entire kitchen staff.

Guess I best get job hunting again

Ya can always apply to the new fucking chef. (Hmm... Head Chef... Exec. Chef... Fucking Chef... that's cool!) Been thru the whole kitchen turnover thing a couple times, always reapplied, auditioned, and got the job. Once I even got a 2 step promotion outta the fucking deal.

Other than that - use your experience you got and apply around. Just be careful working for relatives. And don't fucking give in - LeChat is right.

You are both full of good fucking advice as usual!

I didnt want to work with my brother in the first place as I know what a fucker he can be, but the money was good and it was a job.

I've been wanting to get out of cheffing for ages now. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.

Ya can always do like I did...

Got outta the fucking food biz, went to work for a fucko neighbor's truck shop, took classes and learned how to turn a fucking wrench, became a fucking diesel mechanic, quit that when it was going the fuck under (idiot fuck businessman) , worked for a real fucking idjit at a motorcycle shop (nice guy but lousy fucking businessman and worse mechanic, mosta my work was fixing his), but took that experience and got a job as a fucking civil servant... wherein I will be able to, in all of 4 years, FUCKING RETIRE!!!

At least they didn't do like certain telecom companies stateside love to do and that's let you go right before fucking giftmas.

I lost my last job 1 week before Burning Man. Since then I've ended up putting my house (that I didn't really like anyway) on the market, I got my former boss slammed with an EEOC complaint (that she deserved and the EEOC felt the same), packed most of my stuff and put it in storage, then loaded up a backpack, laptop, and duffel bag and followed my girlfriend to Minneapolis. Fast forward to now, I'm a much happier person, I'm getting time to retool and rebuild my skillsets and I won't have to work at another fucking helpdesk again. I've also kept a long standing promise to myself to find a way to get the fuck out of KC...it took years but it's finally done. Also in January we're taking possession of a small work ranch way out in Nebraska, and she doesn't want me working in corporate America until a couple of BM projects she wants to do are completed. Let's put it this way..I'm pretty damn lucky right now...and it all started rolling because I lost a job that was one of the most miserable, mind numbing jobs I'd ever held.

My point is this could be a huge opportunity for you. And from someone that's going through something similar to your situation, I hope everything works out for you.

Yeah FUCK! FOOD N BEVERAGE!

It will steal your life! I now have 27 yrs of food n bev under my belt, and I have the oppurtunity to do something else,and not have to work 50-65 hrs a week to make ends meet, and there is second income in the home.

BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, all the NON-FnB jobs Im applying for, ask the same question, "why are you applying for this job when your a FnB person"?! And of course Im not getting a call back either...so its kinda like having a "FnB" tattoo'd across your forehead!

As soon as I can kick this SNOT outa my head and not pass "sicky"
Im guess Ill go try to find a day time fucking Bartending yob!


yes....I'm FUCKING DOOMED!

Good fuckin luck, Noggy and PineMom. I've been canned more than once, sometimes from nasty jobs I was too dumb to quit. Opportunity.

:shock: Great! I get a fucking offer, and Noggy loses her job?! Now I feel fucking guilty! :?

Good luck to both of you, Noggy and Pinemom! A custodian job isn't really my dream job (although, to be honest, I have no idea what my fucking dream job would be! :? ) From what I have heard, food service jobs can be some of the nastiest around. There has got to be better out there!

Okay, I'm being a fucking idiot, but what do we expect from Fights with Trains. In the states there are people who go to people's houses and cook like a week's worth of meals and the clients freeze and then reheat them. Maybe you'd like to own your own business, Nogga. At least you could do two weeks worth before going to the playa.

I was actually talking to a fellow Burner in Reno on the Monday after the Burn about doing something like this. I have been mulling it around in my head since getting back. I shall mull some more.

I'm not actually that fucking bothered about the job. Its just the money was good, and it would have been nice to have been able to come to next years Burn without having to bang it all on my fucking credit card!

Onwards and upwards.

Oh, and congrats on the job BAS!

hehe fuck, I was actually thinking about going to the ICEBOX, a place that already has that in place, difference is the customers come and pick out thier frozen items on a menu and take it home with them.

pay aint fuckin' great, but round here, its better then what most people with a degree or two under thier belt make!

Thanks!

That cooking and freezing meals idea might be a good one, if you like to cook. I don't know what sort of market there is for a service like that where you live (or even where I live-- I really don't care for cooking, so it would be a terrible idea for me! :wink: )

Oh, and before I forget: FUCK!
