  2. Well, this is embarrassing.

  3. #OccupyNewOffice

    A lady in HR found out about my office move and told me not to get too comfortable in here, because we’re going to be moving a lot of people soon in our effort to consolidate staff.

    So I’m moving everything I have into this office ASAP and unboxing. I’m no fool.

  4. Tell her to eat a bag of dicks.

  6. Hotspur, I don’t take the words of anyone without a direct charge number seriously.

    My hours pay bills and keep the lights on.

    That’s Mr. Penis to you.

  8. Fuckin-A.

  9. FORT GREENE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Spike Lee had some harsh words for whites moving into predominantly black neighborhoods in New York City…

    Lee told the audience that while he’s all for democracy, he doesn’t like that whites are trying to impose their standards and wealthy ideas on everyone and everything

    Says the black multimillionaire living in the lap of luxury.

    Don’t worry your fappy little head, Precious, because under your president it doesn’t look like black people are getting up anywhere soon on the economic ladder.

    How’s that feel, bitch?

  11. I think you meant nappy.

  12. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)–which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012–has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes “rules” to follow when engaging in these activities.

    “People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth,” the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.

    Finally, an episode of Mythbusters I might watch.

  13. Heh.

  14. Now now, Car in. Double standards just help rectify eleventy billion years of white devils making the black man act like a savage.

  15. Okay, here’s some cool irony.

    HotBride has her one year review coming up at the Co-op. When she was hired they had been losing money for several straight quarters. In the past three quarters that she has been there, they’re still losing money, but not nearly as much. Nevertheless, she thinks it will be a bit of a negative.

    So, I said here’s what you say: “I’ll bet everyone on this board thinks that the economic mess Obama inherited is George Bush’s fault. Right? (They’re all a bunch of smelly hippies.) So, since the economy is still a mess, who here thinks it’s Obama’s fault?”

    She won’t do it though.

  16. Don’t fuck with cats.

  17. So, since the economy is still a mess, who here thinks it’s Obama’s fault?”

    Hotbride should down a Lemon Bear and go for it.

  18. Hotbride should bitchslap their heads together.

    What Would Sean’s Penis Do?

  20. I read somewhere that McDonald’s is considering expanding their breakfast serving hours in an attempt to capture more of the current generation of young ‘uns (whatever teh fuck they’re called). I, for one, am down with that notion. I lurv the sausage (SYWM) and egg burritos and would eat them for dinner or lunch.

    What Would Sean’s Penis Do?

    HAHAH! I was on the phone with a client and had to choke back a snortle. Well done!

  23. *Calls Michelle to report Jimbro

  24. McDonald’s is a scam.

  25. Michelle can eat a bag of vegetarian dicks.

    I’ve had fun telling my little guy about how Michelle is taking sweet and salty foods away from him for the past few years. He’s getting older and beginning to understand my sense of humor more these days. It was fun seeing him double check with Paula if all the things I said were in fact true.

    Worn on the penis.

  27. “People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth,” the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens.

    I know people in this community. Scars and abuse… maybe not, but none of them are entirely okay, and most are leftist twatwaffles.

  28. Does McDonald’s sell twatwaffles?

  29. George just invented the cock ring.

  30. SHAMROCK SHAKES ARE BACK!!!!!

  31. I’ve had exactly 2 different items from them. Egg mcmuffin and lately sausage and egg burritos. Their coffee is good. Never seen twatwaffles there. Do you serve twatwaffles with syrup or sauce?

  32. I like putting bacon in my twatwaffles.

  33. Your daily dose of racism

  34. Taco Bell will be opening for breakfast. They have a waffle breakfast taco. I like Taco Cabana for breakfast.

  35. Hey, a little bit of B is okay. It is the DSM that is sick.

  36. Okay, time for Part Deux of my eye exam. Last time they did it all in one visit. New insurance doesn’t permit that. I hate getting my eyes dilated and this makes twice in 3 weeks. See you later when I can focus on small print again.

  37. Do you serve twatwaffles with syrup or sauce?

    I prefer irony or sarcasasm.

  38. I have some contracts for you to sign when you come back, jimbro. Since you can’t read it, just ignore that small print at the bottom.

  39. See you later when I can focus on small print again.

  46. I’d like to dedicate this song to all of you who have been talking about some guy’s peen:

  47. Since when did the job description for FLOTUS include nagging the peasants about their food? Will someone get this upholstered bitch off the radio?

  48. Seriously, with an ass as big as the First Bitch has, she should have her jaw wired shut.

  49. The size of her ass isn’t the only reason that cunt should have her jaw wired shut.

  50. Morning, Holes of Sean.

    Handoff to XSis for XMom watch successful. Pretty good night/morning. They may move mom to a regular ward today.

  51. Regular ward – EXCELLENT! She will be beating your ass with a wooden spoon in no time now.

  52. Hooray for XMom! ♥♥♥

  53. Regular Ward was perfectly fair with The Beaver last night.

  55. I want to know when the Democrats officially took over “nagging” from the Republicans.

    As much as they spout off about our side wanting to tell everyone how to run their lives, it sure does seem like their side is the one that’s doing all of the hall monitoring.

  57. A highly-touted list of economists who support raising the minimum wage includes many people with questionable credentials or far-left, controversial views…

    Researchers concluded that ten people on the list do not even hold a Ph.D. in economics. One of them appears to be an undergraduate at Queens College who, according to his LinkedIn account, is seeking employment as a security guard…

    One of the list’s members defined a rogue state as “a fierce and dangerous animal, like an elephant, that separates itself from its herd,” and labeled the United States “the world’s number one rogue.” Another called former Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez “a great leader.” A third wrote a paper in which he praised the “particular model of socialism pioneered by the Soviet Union.”

    Another signer, Paul Zarembka, edited the book,“The Hidden History of 9/11.”

  58. What is the source on your 2:08 poat, George?

  59. This one PG (or one like it)

    http://dailycaller.com/2014/02/26/report-look-whos-on-wh-touted-list-of-pro-minimum-wage-hike-economists/

    It’s kind of a bullshit article (which theDC is really good at). 602 signatories and they’re able to discredit a handful.

    This is no endorsement of raising the minimum wage (which is a terrible idea and also a bullshit distraction manufactured by the dems right now to avoid Obamacare arguments), but still, pretty weak tea.

  60. Radio ablation injection time for mil. There’s an abortion clinic across the lot from her neuro doc… Just got bummed out seeing the number of young women that have gone in there.

  61. Finally, an episode of Mythbusters I might watch.

    Kari won’t be the one in the rack with the nipple rings, nor wearing the leather bustier.

  62. Kari might be the one wearing backseams and holding the whip, though.

  63. Kari might be the one wearing backseams and holding the whip, though.

    Frankly, Jamie has the look to pull that off.

  64. I don’t wanna gripe or anything, but I hafta say, these sites that split articles into multi-page click fests frustrate me. New Yorker-length essays are one thing, but a 1500-word blog post can fit on one webpage easily without being onerous. AND, the fact that the site gives readers an option to view the post as a single page at the end of the “first” page, when it makes no difference whether one chooses that option or “Page 2” in retrieving the end of the post, just amps up the idiocy of the practice.

  65. Jazz, how did your contractor client fare in the lawsuit?

  66. It’s all about traffic, Jazz.

  67. My contractor client took it in the shitter, but he’s out of the suit. We settled on Tuesday. This is the case where the preceding attorneys failed to answer the counter-complaint and failed to file an expert witness list. The expert witness list was overdue by six weeks when I took the case, and the answer was overdue by 3 months. He ended up losing money on the job, but I kept him from going into full-bore litigation mode, which would have cost him $25K more than he was ever gonna recover (in the BEST case scenario). My predecessors were atrocious attorneys. I’m not sure how much more poorly they could have handled the situation.

  68. It’s all about traffic, Jazz.

    The point is obvious, but cheap theatrics are a turn-off. Ace writes some tomes, but at least he has the courtesy to keep it to one page. The “below the fold” option is fine with me for long stuff – at least the page doesn’t need to reload.

    I think someone peed in my cole slaw. ;-)

  69. Sean’s Penis probably overshot the mark.

  70. That wasn’t pee.

  71. That wasn’t pee.

    It was Lemon Bear Dick Punch!

  72. I had to go to the office.

    For an hour.

    It was awful.

  73. You know what’s wrong with Obamacare? It’s the MESSAGING – no one’s getting it!

    The Obama administration is running into a somewhat surprising roadblock in its final push to get Americans enrolled in Obamacare ahead of the March 31 deadline: The nation’s uninsured are increasingly suspicious of the law.

    Fifty-six percent of those who identified as uninsured in a new poll conducted in February by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, a research institution, had an unfavorable view of the health care reform law, compared to just 22 percent who said they view it favorably. The uninsured now see Obamacare less favorably than they did when the enrollment period began in October. As recently as September, more uninsured approved of the law than disapproved.

    * * *
    And 60 percent of the uninsured didn’t know (or refused to respond) that March 31 is the last day to obtain health coverage for 2014 and to avoid financial penalties for violating the law’s individual mandate requiring most Americans get covered. Less than a quarter of the uninsured knew about the March 31 deadline. In spite of all the outreach work and the publicity about Obamacare, lack of awareness remains a major obstacle, just as it did in September before enrollment began.

    Caution: PuffHo link. http://huff.to/1cqzfZw

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  74. BTW, financial penalties aren’t financial penalties if you don’t have to pay them. Fucking morons.

  75. The nation’s uninsured are increasingly suspicious of the law.

    It’s all the fault of those evil Koch brothers! And Math. But mostly Koch!

  77. Picked up and packed an entire phone system today.

    145 phones.

  78. Leon gets a treadmill.

  79. 145 phones.

    ‘Bamaphonz?

  80. Picked up and packed an entire phone system today.

    145 phones.

    That’s a lot of phone sex.

  81. Came out of the Dept of Social Services. It was packed with people looking for their benefits. Apparently their old phone system couldn’t keep up with the new demand.

    In the phone room there was a big monitor showing the number of people on hold in real time.

    The average was about 225.

  82. My contractor client took it in the shitter, but he’s out of the suit.

    When is he going after your predecessor?

  83. Bread lines, soup kitchens…

    But we’re in a recovery.

  84. Hey, come on now. Everyone knows bread lines and soup kitchens create jobs.

  85. Decline and decadence, I say, just like our indulgence of the myriad of insanities clamoring to be called “normal”.

  86. Eyes are healthy. I’m described as a “Glaucoma suspect” based on the anatomy of my eyes.

    I told the Optometrist that he was profiling me.

  87. I think they want my insurance policy back in their clinic. At the dentist I’ve heard that my wisdom teeth are unopposed and that they may need to come out some day since about 1987.

  88. When the fecal matter hits the air velocity amplifier, me and my guns will be ready.

  89. I stopped at a few places on the way home. I should’ve taken your advice not to sign any contracts. I signed up for something called Gander Reassessment Survey. Anyone else here take the survey?

  90. The lowlife leeches in the waiting room? They call them clients.

  91. My husband was rrmarking that with the horrible weather, none of the homeless seem to be having any problems . There must not be very many of them either because the media haven’t done any stories on them,

  92. Almost crackfat time,

  93. There are no Homeless is the worker’s paradise created by Barack I (PBUH).

  94. Homeless don’t exist between Republican administrations.

  95. In the last couple of years we’ve had panhandlers hanging around intersections near the Bangor Mall. I’ve been here since ’99 and this is a totally new thing.

  96. When the weather was warmer, I was seeing them near the interstate on/off ramps.

    I assume the polar vortex killed them, or possibly Winter Storm Leon.

  97. These are not homeless. They are undocumented property owners.

  98. For those of you on FaceChimp. Herself and I are having some work done in the kitchen: Stained, hand-poured concrete countertops and tumbled stone backsplash. We’ll wait to do the floor, ’cause I’m not borrowing any money.

  99. I signed up for something called Gander Reassessment Survey.

    What’s good for the goose…

  100. Sweet!

  101. I noticed that here a couple of weeks ago.

    It’s too cold to be homeless, they are all inside now.

  102. Hotspur – You talking to me or G.O.?

  103. You.

  104. Hey, come on now. Everyone knows bread lines and soup kitchens create jobs.

    Is this what it was like during the Depression? Sounds like The Forgotten Man.

  105. Looking good MCPO.

    What kind of sink and faucet did you go with?

  106. He can’t afford those until next month.

  107. In the phone room there was a big monitor showing the number of people on hold in real time.
    The average was about 225.
    —————————————
    This is one of the classic statements where a liberal would see the need to hire more people to dish out the gravy faster cuz jobs or something.

    You see, paying people not to work puts more people to work.

    Hahahahahahahaha.

  109. Kitchen looks awesome MCPO.

  110. Scott – Brushed stainless. Could not believe how thin the builder’s sink was – maybe 16-18 gauge.

  111. Very spiffy, Chief! I bet you guys can’t wait to try it out –

    Where’d you get your fireplace insert? Looks just like the one that we got –

  112. I didn’t realize it was stained concrete Chief. Excellent work by the contractor. We’ve done a little bit of it, commercial not residential, and it can be a total bitch.

  113. Florida’s Sink seems to be a little thin, too.

  114. paying people not to work puts more people to work.

    This is probably not the time to bitch about my co-worker not doing anything on an assigned task for two months.

  115. Don’t get me started on assigned tasks.

  116. When is he going after your predecessor?

    Not worth the effort. He’s gonna grieve them, though, which is gonna SUCK. Missing deadlines is the A #1 “Do NOT do” in lawyer-dom. My client won’t see any money, but he’s gonna get his pound of flesh.

  117. Hahahahahahahaha!!!!

    If it has to do with a malfunctioning spacesuit, maybe it is….

  119. Ooooo, a sequel worth watching! Can’t wait to get home!

  120. I only volunteer if the person requesting help doesn’t use the word bandwidth.

    ‘I don’t have enough bandwidth and need some help.”

    Nope!

    ‘Hey could you help me with this?’

    Sure!

  125. I didn’t build anything today. I did pack off 35 field ranges.

  130. Chief, did they acid wash the concrete before staining it?

  131. ZOMG, it is fucking cold out tonight. Going down to ten below.

  132. Bcoch – Stained “buff” while mixing, then hit it with acetone, then highlighted with a darker stain, then sealed.

    Roamy – Thanks!

  133. Very cool. That’s walking the edge of “artist”.

  134. I really like the kitchen pics, Chief.

  135. Bcochran – These guys are artists – rough around the edges, but great eyes and hands for this work.

  136. My predecessors were atrocious attorneys. I’m not sure how much more poorly they could have handled the situation.

    If they really just blew off filing deadlines like that, there’s an ethics case that should be brought to the attention of the state bar. If fact, you might have an ethical obligation to advise your client that he has the right to file a grievance in a case where the misconduct was that obvious and egregious.

  142. Buckle up!

    Ha Ha! *claps hands* Do it again!

  143. Well at least go straighten out the rug in the living room!

    No. Just have to roll it up in the morning again so they can put down their tarps.

  163. Spent the day helping the boy move. 6 hours of driving plus the added benefit of pulling a trailer. Drove back in a 40 mph wind. Still blowing like a mofo. Get to drive another 4 hours tomorrow to go to a bull sale. Really hope I can afford a couple.

  164. I will never use the word “manipulate” the same way ever again.

  165. You kicking the boy out and onward, Pepe?

  166. I have a customer who was calling me every day, rush, rush, rush.

    My last email to him was an invoice and a note saying IF I ship it tomorrow you’ll have it Monday.

    That was 3 days ago.

    Asshole is waiting to see if I accidentally shipped it before getting paid.

    When he finally figures it out and pays me, I am going to hold on to it for another week.

  167. Is your boy still with that high maintenance girl Pepe?

    Good luck on the bulls. I thought you only need one bull for the herd. Is that insurance in case one’s shooting blanks?

  168. AoSHQ is blocked at work, which is a shame on days like today when there are several interesting threads. :(

  169. Nope, Cyn, the last gasp of his issues with the psycho chick. Getting some stuff back that she was holding hostage. Finally totally over (unless she starts stalking him again) #parent nightmares.

  170. Hot damn, some closure with psycho chick – finally. That’s great news, Pep!

  171. One bull for 15 to 20 cows in the rough country we have, Jimbro. One of our bulls is getting too heavy to get around like he needs to. Once they hit 6 they start really packing on muscle. 2,000 pounds and walking around on rocky stuff equals sore feet. Bulls are washed up by 8. Semen production drops dramatically.

    Girl went absolutely nuts, Jimbro. It was a nightmare, but we’re finally over with it. *knocks wood, says a prayer*

  172. I’d try and explain, but too long a story, and no fucking way I’m gonna end up authoring one of the copy and paste posts. :)

  173. “I’d try and explain, but too long a story, and no fucking way I’m gonna end up authoring one of the copy and paste posts. :)”

    Glad your son moved on.

  177. If they really just blew off filing deadlines like that, there’s an ethics case that should be brought to the attention of the state bar. If fact, you might have an ethical obligation to advise your client that he has the right to file a grievance in a case where the misconduct was that obvious and egregious.

    I’ve already done so. In fact, I rather suspect if my client does not grieve my predecessors that I’M obligated to grieve them. I hate bad lawyers.

  178. If he didn’t learn the lesson, we’ve instructed his friends to just shoot him and put him out of our misery. This girl was a freaking nightmare.

  179. It’s the rule every man has to learn the hard way: don’t stick your dick in crazy.

  180. When he finally figures it out and pays me, I am going to hold on to it for another week.

  209. I have mixed emotions about this report:

  210. Hey Jazz
    Stay warms
    I’ll be up in North Dakota next week
    Low -20
    80 degrees down here and the trees are blooming
    Me sad
    It will warm up there later in the week though
    Yay!.

  211. I work outdoors so the temps are scary

  212. ““Just as automatic external defibrillators are easily usable and quickly available to the public, so should easily applied tourniquets be available in a similar manner and locations,” said Norman McSwain, MD, FACS, medical director, pre-hospital trauma life support. “It’s not a complicated process and it will save lives.”

    America, your next War Zone.

  213. TJ, I merely pass through the outdoors between destinations and I always notice my tolerance for cold improves over the season. There’s a HUGE difference between my tolerance for the cold and actually working outside in it.

  214. Cue the feminist outrage machine:

  215. My arthritis is KICKING today. My hands, my lower back, my neck… I just hurt. I don’t have it in my knees, hips, shoulders, or elbows, though – and most definitely not my jaw (much to the chagrin of many).

  216. Cue the feminist outrage machine:

    HAHAHAHAHAHA – you mean, people are animals and do animal things, even when people try to paper over those inclinations with “sentience” and “civility” and pretend to be above animal behavior?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  217. Crossfit open starts today/this weekend. I am NOT doing it. LOL.

    First workout is double unders and snatches. I suck at double unders any way.

  218. First workout is double unders and snatches. I suck at double unders any way

    Word on the street is you’ve got a pretty nice snatch, though.

    Just sayin’.

  219. How about wall balls? Are you a good wall baller?

  220. OH GOD. we did wall balls yesterday. 100. Totally sucked.

    I am not a good wall baller. In the first set of 20, the dang ball landed square on my face (lowing hanging fruit, I know).

    But dang that HURT. Thought I’d have a bloodied nose.

  221. The lovely trials of living with dementia…. My mother threw out perfectly good leftovers, for what reason? I dunno, but the tupperware is in the dishwasher. She evidently remembers there should be leftovers, and she found the empty storage containers, and she’s bitching at me for either eating it all or dumping the food. We don’t eat the same food at all – there’s NO WAY I’d eat that fucking yard waste she eats (granola hippie bullshit). Oh, yeah – and I remember WTF I do. So, I get an earful about some shit I don’t even know about, wouldn’t eat, and wouldn’t touch with hired messkin. I’ve gotta keep reminding myself this is an illness, but damn… Some days….

  222. I’m shocked, shocked to find out that powerful hormones affect mood and behavior.

    It also happens to men, but the cause is extrinsic. Comes from eating phytoestrogens or wearing pajamas.

    Contra-indications: Metrosexual glasses and hot chocolate. Symptoms include nagging, liberalism, and extreme pussification.

  224. See, balls in the face of sweaty women is why I can’t go to crackfat.

    I’d be way too distracted to get any exercise.

  225. jazz, my dad would get wacky every now and then when the toxins would build up in his blood due to his kidney issues. Yes, it is hard.

  226. Jazz, hang in there man. It’s tough to deal with. My mom kept my dad at home for probably a year past the point where any normal person would. My mom is a retired nurse and has the patience of Job. He has frontotemporal dementia as a consequence of a head injury he sustained in ’96. He is living in an Alzheimer’s facility now going on nearly 2 years.

  228. Yesterday’s workout was exactly the kind I hate. Killer conditioning. 20 wallballs, 15 kettle bell swings, 5 burpees, 5 Rounds.

    You get done, and you just want to lay on the floor for a while.

    I did learn a new technique for kettle bell swings. You don’t swing so much as you basically snatch.

  229. Won’t you join us on the NEW POAT?

    hahahahahahah! Let's not, Nancy.

    Thanks, Carin & Jimbro. I keep trying to take a step back and put things in perspective. I signed on for this. I'm just an old grump, but I'm trying to be nicer, especially in light of mom's challenges. Her behavior really tries me these days – she's really, really over-emotive, so the stories she can tell are melodramatic, her affect is overpowering, and her emotional responses are a bit disproportionate. I try treat her as "normally" as possible, yet the new normal is nothing familiar to me. I'll get the hang of this eventually, though. I just have to check my shit.
