  1. yikes that's brutal. O_O i would have at least stayed one more week to get a free forklift training though. who knows it might come in handy one day :P I remember seeing this episode of Undercover Boss where warehouse workers simply collapse from heat exhaustion because they have no running a/c and they have to pay for a bottle of water. scary part was despite camera was rolling, managers there didn't give a crap. lol.

    <<<I asked my boss.. "umm.. I don't know what to tell these people about these serious issues. Are you sure a temp is right for this job?"

    Boss: "I'm sure everything will be fine. How difficult can 'Bob's' job be? I swear he just sits on his ass all day browsing the internet. Ask Jolene if you need any help."

    Me: "Hey Jolene, what in the hell should I be telling these people?"

    Jolene: "Well I would tell this person.. blah blah and this person.. and this.. (actual decent advice)"

    Me: "Ok, thanks, I'll see what they say. btw, how long have you been working here?"

    Jolene: "1 week. I'm a temp too."

    Me: "Wow. Don't you think this is the worst position to fill with temps?"

    Jolene: "Absolutely. This place is a disaster."

    I worked at that place for 1 1/2 weeks. XD That company filed for bankruptcy within 5 years. When I heard about it, I wasn't surprised in the slightest. XD>>>

    HAHAHA X'D
    Me: "Hey boss, how long have you been working here?"
    Boss: "1 week. just got promoted from package sorting"

     


  2. cool. what did you do there? did you drive forklift and stuff? I spoke to someone who worked at a warehouse before and he told me they only gave him two days of work. and every week, his schedule was different like one day he can work monday and wednesday, next week, he can work tuesday and friday etc., giving him no room to get a 2nd job and he didn't know when his paycheck gonna come each week. ouch.

    they built a new warehouse a couple miles from my home not too long ago. but i didn't give a good look but i think they are for distributing mechanical parts. no sign of hiring. their alleys(?) are open but it's always empty though. but yeah driving forklift sounds fun. :P


  3. thanks! when i applied, i told them i wanted to do interstate (to have better chance of getting hired). but it'd be awesome if i could do local/state. but right now, i got this as a back up. i needed some kind of skill, just incase something happens at my current job, get laid off or whatever. i'm thinking about getting a part time job maybe as a class B driver, or get a bus endorsement (which requires another road test). one of my coworkers has a sidejob as a plumber helper and he said he made $150 just changing waterheater working only 3 hours. that motivated me to get my CDL in the first place because i'm not that young anymore lol, hopefully i can learn other trade too.

  4. i passed my (CDL class A) road test today. so happy :D. watched so many youtube videos about trucking that i actually learned how to pass driving big rigs and getting my license (plus playing euro truck simulator video game helped lol). instructors from trucking school that i went to had little to no help because of limited time and being busy/stressed out etc (they had only two working trucks, only an hour a day training/practiced for 2 weeks..8 to 12 hours total..not enough time imo), although i can't blame them since DPS is two months behind their regular road tests as there are so many people applying for their CDL. economy man, still sucks for lot of ppl.

    just couple examples what it's like to expect during road test:

  5. It's on Netflix. ;)

    Korea(called Joseon then)'s Yi Soon Shin defeats 300+ Japanese warships with only 12 during Japanese invasion of Korea in 1500s. Despite imprisonment, torture and hatred from his own King and jealous politicians, he accomplishes what needs to be done.
    i use to have a piggy bank turtle ship when i was a kid lol..

    cried like a little bitch watching this..no shame..


     


  6. can't believe they attacked a family with a wife and a little baby. doesn't matter if they knew it or not,because the windows were tinted. slashing his tires after purposely blocking the suv on the road, "bumping' it on purpose, expecting him not to retaliate. a little saidstic to say but glad one of them was paralyzed for life and he got what he desereved. 


  7. I think I've been watching too many kitten/cat videos on youtube recently, forgetting how bad and costly it was when I had my old cat, it's slowly losing my interest of having a cat again. Thanks for the help though. Someday I would like to get one, but right now, I don't think it's a good time for me and it would be unfair to that kitten/cat as well.


  8. Eee that's gross. I prefer female cats anyway lol

    Only pet store here I know is at the mall but they sell kittens at $300-400. O_O; Petsmart gives away cats for adoptions but I'm still thinking about it. Some of them have been returned so something might be wrong with them. Plus my previous cat had fleas (and parasites) and they only liked my blood so that's another downside, but yea smell can be a big problem. Hmm.


  9. After giving away my cat about 10+ yrs ago haven't stopped thinking about him ever since..not the most affectionate cat and hated cuddling/hugging but still.. And my new job will take most of my time and I don't think I will be able to take care of it other then petting and giving food time to time. But I would like to get a kitten..or adopt a cat. What should I do? No one would be around the house for at least 9+ hrs or so so I don't know. And I heard if a cat wants attention and not get it, it would pee on anything so I'm little worried about that too (my cat once peed in a box where most of my Super Nintendo games were)..and foul odor from its litter box etc.


  10. This Thursday was my 4th. I think I get the summon once every 1 and a half year or two but that's still one too many. I was lucky enough to get dismissal twice (once because there were too many people attended, and this time it was already settled and no need for trial). But still, the longest one was I had to wait for 5 hours (for this one 3 hours). Unfortunately most ppl have to stay in a crowded place from 8am to 5pm with ONE shitty restroom intact..it seems not worth all that trouble :\


  11. I stumbled upon it not too long ago on netflix and was hooked instantly, watching it for hours nonstop. I was pissed that this show was cancelled and I didn't even realize it until I reached season 2. Still thinking about the characters from Jericho..Never thought that I would care so much about well beings of so many TV characters in one series. It's a shame that this show ended so early. Definitely one of the best in my book


  12. Season 3 was already green lit.

    @slippers No worries bud. They've been changing the story up a lot. If they followed the comics then a few other people would have been dead by now (Season 2) however they kept them around for reasons unknown. They did kill off a character that's still alive in the comic...so people's deaths are pretty much in the air right now.

    I'm enjoying both because of the story change ups.

    Hah, I was shocked the way Sophia ended up. New episodes next week :beer:


  13. :picknose:Too much fox news....

    lol actually fo x was down playing it while ppl in vermont and 40 ppl had a shitty week with Irene.

    east cost, with danielle last year, has been lucky so far but looks like katia(?) is going to hit the gulf again. URG. i hope not
