    Rant: Getting up at 5-5:30 am for the new job isn't so bad ( my day is half over at 8:30 am ) but it'd be a whole lot easier if our dog didn't wake up 3-4 times a night to piss. I get that she's old but Christ...

    Not sure if this qualifies as a "RANT" or a "I'm pretty fucking stressed out" but here goes: At the end of June I got snipped and this was my post;
    "Got snipped on Thursday and I was so worried about nothing. Took 10-12 mins and had some very minor discomfort on Friday and felt fine after that. They gave me 30 Norcos and I think I took one when I got home and one Friday morning just to be safe."

    Fast forward to Sept when I take my sample in to get tested and I still have a few swimmers. The sperm counter person tells me that it's not too uncommon for that to happen and to make sure I've made my O face at least 20 times. I was pretty sure I already hit that number but just in case, I had my hand put in some OT for the last 45 days. Dropped off another sample last week and they're telling me that I still have some "Present" Again, they gave me the "it's not uncommon and to give another sample in a month or so." I told them this IS the 2nd sample and I'm WAY over the 20.
    Nurse - "When did you have your operation?"
    Me - "At the end of June."
    Long pause.....
    Nurse - "I'm going to schedule you an appointment with the doctor so he can go over some things with you."

    Probably TMI for many of you, but I don't see the "spoiler" button and we're one big dysfunctional family anyway, right?

    Rave: Earlier this year I posted a video in the Porn Thread featuring a young lady who, frankly, knocked my socks off. Well, I wrote a little piece of erotica based on the video, and intended to expand it into something bigger - so figured I should get her permission first. Ended up abandoning that project, but I did get in touch with her. She and her girlfriend loved the piece I wrote, and they both turned out to be awesome, fun chicks. Long and the short of it is, we're partnering up to write a book. If that's my break then that's my break. There are worse things!

    Rant: We bought some cheap ass sheet metal shed just to store the yard stuff. During the process of putting it together a few days ago, I instinctively tried to catch a piece of sheet metal. As a result, I now have 4 stitches right where my thumb is attached to my hand. I'm lucky I didn't sever it. Unfortunately, I had to pay someone to finish putting it together.

    RAVE: I finally got that damn lawnmower running right.

    Praise the lord and pass the ammunition, as my dad would say in such a situation.

    I just put a new carburetor on it. I never did figure out exactly what was wrong with the old one, which really steams my brocolli; I was tempted to open up the new one and compare the two, but I figured it best to not tempt fate, and I just bolted it on and started it up.

    Now I've got to change the oil on the machine, since it ingested lord knows how much gas in the past weeks.

    In other news, I got the pathetic, leaking V6 out of Jungle Julia's car in preparation for the LS swap; more details and pictures to come in the automotive thread.

    RAVE: I'm sterile.

    RANT: The jackasses at the lab ran the wrong type of test. Instead of running a post-V test, they ran some sort of fertility test. After reading the lab results, the Dr said that I have less than 1% of 1% of the normal amount of swimmers and that in all likelihood, they're dead. But, since there are *some* there, the lab marked it as "Present"

    Rant- I got a certified letter today that my therapist and drug clinician were cancelling my services because of balance payments not being paid. They aren't open until Monday but I can bet dollars donuts these idiots' billing department has fucked up again. Way back when I started there was an appointment that wasn't billed right for my copay that I paid before the service. I ended up getting a bill for it and talked with them when I went in again. The staff said they fixed it and to ignore the mail bill I had received. When the same bill arrived again I went another round and was told it was corrected. I ignored subsequent bills of this amount. Barring some unseen fee theyve been charging me that my insurance hasn't picked up they havent corrected the initial mistake. The last letter I just dug out had a bill for the exact 30 dollars of my copay. No huge outstanding amount listed on the bill. Ive paid my co pay before each and every visit with receipts and bank statements to match.

    That original charge being headache enough it's not the only thing they fucked up. Got a letter a month ago from them saying they gave my last copay receipt to another patient on accident. They started calling on the day of my appointments seeing if I wanted to prepay the co pay to check in. I asked if theyd keep my card card on file and just bill me, was told no theyd have to get my credit card number over the phone each time.I told them no thanks please stop calling to ask this. It took three more visits, three more calls, three more request to stop before they actually did. Before that they decided every patient not using their drug addiction facility would have to start paying 200 dollars annual fee (basically club fee to continue to be a patient there) to help support the drug facility. If you didn't pay you'd be discharged from their services and referred to another facility. I ponied up only to get an apology letter not more than a month latter saying they had made a poor decision that in retrospect looked callous to threaten to cut off struggling patient's care. They refunded everyone's money. This is a huge multimillion dollar facility connected with the University. Im thinking I need to search out a smaller more personal practice. The fact that theyd just send a letter cancelling services out of the blue without reaching out by phone, or bringing it up when I came in and paid every time at the receptionist, or when asking me during the sessions. Just a signed letter by my therapist and clinician saying see ya!

    Rave: Cheers to all of our Canadian friends on this board. I’ve been here now for two days and can’t speak highly enough about how great everyone has been here. Looking forward to the Letterkenny show tomorrow. I’m sure it will be fun, and it will be great to meet the cast.

    Rant: About to start my end of year holiday road trip of the East Coast in Australia and my travel partner who was flying over from the Netherlands got hit from behind by a truck, no broken bones or major damage thankfully but she's shook up pretty bad and spent a few days in hospital.

    Rave: Started my full leg tattoo piece a week ago and next session in another week, full colour so will take the better part of a year and a shit load of money but it looks good so far.

    RANT: Several weeks ago we totaled one of our trucks at work, no one was hurt so we got a kick out of it being T-boned by the select sires semen truck. I also went out and picked up another truck, three weeks and roughly 1500-2000 miles later I take it in because its not shifting right. The transmission fluid is milky and they tell me it's basically shot. Call the dealership that I bought it from and am told, well, you didn't buy the extended warranty...

    My normal mechanic has sent out a sample of the fluid to see exactly what is in there (coolant/water/whatever) and has found a transmission to put in. Really didn't think I'd be dropping a new transmission into a $45,000 truck three weeks after I bought it.

    Rave: My daughter got her first loose tooth(bottom left centre) and she was so excited it was really cute.

    Rant:
    My daughter has inherited my shitty genes in the dental area. She just got her first loose tooth and already in behind it and the one next to it already has her adult teeth coming in. Yup just like dad has 2 rows of teeth at the same time.

    Rant: I'm supposed to start driving in less than two weeks. In the meantime, during training we've been taking routes and driving them so I can get used to following turn by turn instructions the regular drivers write up for those of us filling in for them to follow.

    Except so far every single one I've tried to follow is written out wrong, hasn't been updated, or is completely missing important information. So in two weeks I'll be driving to places I'm not familiar with, trying to follow instructions that are all fucked up, all with a bus load of screaming kids. ( Although I guess if I can't find them...) And all of this seems completely normal to everyone but me, and doesn't look like it's going to change.

    So yeah, I'm not feeling really apprehensive or anything here.
