Drivers on two-lane roads that slow down in the no-passing zone, then speed up in the passing zone.

Very true, was able to minimize the mess (got the water shut off pretty quickly).
Made a run to Home Depot this morning, picked up a new tank and had installed in 10 minutes.

Influenza
Not your wimpy-ass common cold overblown into "I've got the flu."
I'm talking flat on your back, massive fever and chills, watery diarrhea, unbelievable joint pain, headaches, loose 10 pounds in three days Influenza. The shit that killed off 20+ million 100 years ago.

FML. Tired of being sick.

Well, THAT particular flu mostly killed the young and fit by causing the immune system to go hayware and basically drown the person in their own fluids (called a "Cytokine Storm"). The old and weak were actually more fortunate than the young in many cases.

Hope you feel better.

Frozen fucking water lines. Had several nights last week at zero and nothing froze. Last night, at 10deg my water line from my well to the house froze, spent all day unfucking it, but now have water again. This Minnesota in Virginia shit needs to cease.

I work for a guy who's in charge of probably 1500 people, and not only does this clown send emails full of spelling a grammatical errors to captains and admirals, but he also likes to send emails to us (the pee-ons) with the whole email in the subject line. No body at all, just two or three sentences in the subject line.

And I thought I had problems with my supervisor who CCs God and country on every email. Then he decided to group text our personal phones when he wants to tell us something anytime day or night and now has stepped up to calling us whenever he wants to talk to us day or night.
I charged him two hours last week when he decided to call me when i was on leave asking me where I was at. Boy he was pissed, even more when I told him I was not going to change my time sheet.
