    Hah, I probably wouldn't play anyway.
    I just don't understand how almost every post you make in every thread has a political connotation.
    You seem to blame your political opponents for everything from bad weather to the declining quality of paint at your hardware store. It is bizarre :)

    Sunday night here, got to go back to the shit hole that I work at, with the crappiest boss on the planet.
    He goes from Belligerent, to argumentative, to aggressive, on a good day he is just plain rude.
    The girls in the office call him The angry man or Mr Grumpy. The blokes just think he is a dick head.
    That's what 15 years Air Force as a base wallop-er will do to you.
    Sick of locking horns with him. I avoid him at all costs.
    Would kill to thump him but it would mean my job.
    So Stress, yeah starts in about 9 hours.

    Feel in a different spot.

    I had a bipolar boss for 15 years.

    I was always neutral or positive.

    He needed me as a buffer.

    I quit once and he hired me back a year later because of the techical difficulties the company ran into without me.

    I always gave it my best (I won a contract when I gave a presentation with a freshly broken collar bone, staff told me they could hear the bones grinding).

    When he had a bad morning once or twice a week I ignored it and worked to get him refocused.

    Stress can also be great when you are dealing with things you can fix, but your hands are tied behind your back.

    Who's hands r those? If u mean me, my hand are not tied now..

    Well, i was the one who want to quit the job. After my colleague resigned, my boss gave me extra work, I'm was ok with the work & stress but the people there were not the social type nor they were real.. The guy who resigned was the only one who was a real human as far as i can tell, the rest were just fake, they would act nice and give food if they need help and if they don't need they'll be quiet, very quiet.. I was kinda lonely at home and at work, i've just became a working zombie.. z19

    I have grown up a petrol head, worked on cars all my life. you would be amazed at how nice it is under a car thats up on stands in the summer. Have nearly fallen asleep many times. Guess I feel at home under there.

    Yeah, everything seems to work. There is still a knot where the bones join (I have X-rays that show the bones overlapping about 2 1/2 inches before they adjusted the shoulder). The day after the skiing accident the whole upper right quadrant of my body was shades of purple and yellow, that faded over a couple of weeks. It was about 5 years before I could drive any distance without back pain. But I was lucky that I rotated enough to land on my shoulder and not my neck.

    And I was back to skiing 2 weeks after the bones knitted.

    Out of my control.

    We had been racing down a blue slope at Lake Placid (I did the luge the day before - that is rough on the fillings), and we were just cruising back down it on the upper half of the mountain. It was a blue slope and I was only going 35-40 MPH so I wasn't paying a lot of attention and wasn't in a racing crouch.

    I took the bottom track into a blind 90° corner that had a dip, as I went over the edge I saw a mogul and didn't have time to react (it hadn't been there earlier). The guys with me said I went 20+ feet in the air. Hit the far bank of the trail at a perpendicular angle (square on).

    The guys were speculating on whether I was dead when they saw some twitching and I got to my feet. They excitedly told me about my short air trip and that I was lopsided. One shoulder was too far forward and too low.

    Picked up my poles in my left hand and started skiing with them down the hill. When I got to the mid station the ski patrol spotted me. They literally tackled me. They were pissed I was still skiing. From there on things were out of my control. I was tied to one of the gurney sleds and towed down the hill. What a nuisance.

    This led to an ambulance ride to the hospital and the X-rays so they could figure out what I had done to myself. I'm lucky the collar bone was the only thing that broke. I used my shoulder as a crush zone to absorb impact, much like the front of a car is designed to do.

    My rabbit and cats are forever under my vehicle so they must know that feeling well. Very cool no doubt especially in the heat.
