so apparently the reason the pentagon bathrooms are cleaned so frequently is because so many people throw up from stress the stomach acid was doing a number on the porcelain

i didn't think it was a thing until i was taking a leak and a dude lost his lunch in the stall today while saying 'it's just a half hour' and my boss was like 'yeah i throw up about five or six times a month here'

There's a local Chicago & Milwaukee chain that's like that, Cermak Fresh Market. Basically a Whole Foods crossed with a huge Mexican grocery store. It owns and is cheap as hell.

Nah, I'm fine now. It took some time getting used to things like "responsibility" and "deadlines" but as I've taken to telling people "The building might be on fire but my job is to wash the windows".

I had several 'come to jesus' meetings with the person I'm replacing, my client, and my leadership this week and we're all on the same page for now. My team has a very specific task to do, and nobody is gonna gently caress with us doing it.

It's just incredibly amusing to me because I've spent most of my adult life trying to be as far away from the flagpole as I can and welp, now I get to see how this side of business works.

Thatís kind of insane. Itís really common to see girls run into the bathroom crying at work. I asked my girlfriend about this and sheís like, ďoh yea I cried about twice a month the first few years.Ē

My work stress is gently caress-all. Love the weed fields. Still don't buy the hippy bullshit that half the people in the industry still grasp to (feed your plants love, man, type of people). No, feed your plants nutrients and water and CO2.

Moved 160 plants from nursery to flower house today. Most were already five feet tall, going to spring up to 7-8 feet before they finish flowering. loving monster plants. Love it.

I got a job as a county employee so I'm pretty relieved to be a part of PERS and have a Union.

I mainly fix airport self check-in kiosks, walk 10 miles a day, and I'm pretty stress free.

Weed helps, but I don't want to ruin my career by getting into an accident with an airliner, so I have to dial it back.

You don't have to have a dream job to be relatively stress free. There will always be some motherfucker trying to ice skate uphill, your shouldn't join them nor allow other dipshits to join them.

Thanks. Itís a little stressful. Iíve bounced around a lot since finishing college to get my salary up to a high level for someone with barely 3 years experience. Iíve been very unsatisfied so far, and I think a lot of it has to due with my precious clients being such a mess to work with.

This new role is lateral in terms of compensation but the client is in a very different industry, and Iím at the ground-level to shape everything in a positive manner going forward.

No more consumer food poo poo for me. Itís hard to get that stink off of you.

My folks came down to visit us this weekend as we were at the in-laws for Christmas. They got us a new probe thermometer and a few other kitchen things we needed. The one thing that really surprised me and was very touching was one of the cast iron pans from my Grandmother's house. She was from the south and this pan is the most cured I have ever seen a cast iron. Last year she passed and they just recently cleared out the house and I mentioned to my mom if they had saved any of them, so it was nice of her to pass that on. Was a nice way to start the new year.

Mostly cause old school cast iron had a more finished surface as opposed to modern stuff being rough. I've got a vintage griddle and a small skillet that I can make scrambled eggs on with almost no sticking.

I just got a Field skillet. They machine the inside smooth. More expensive than Lodge, but at least a modern manufacturer is starting to smooth their poo poo now and I support that.

Those look nice but the price.

I'll stick to vintage for smoother stuff, but not that I really need any more cast iron between my 12" lodge, vintage unbranded 8", and griddle. Also a Le Creuset dutch oven.

Antique stores. Had an ex-girlfriend who loved antiquing. She gave me some cast iron she picked up from there as a Birthday present once. Best pans I own, including my all-clad.

Fun fact. Whenever Social Distortion tours, Mike Ness gets his own dedicated runner at venues. Why? So he can go hit up antique stores and flea markets before his set. Apparently, that's his favorite hobby.
