"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"

My daily follies of commuting on the Long Island Expressway, plus gym reports

September 1 – 10Peter

New month, new start All in all, I would have to say that September has gotten off to a pretty decent start. The workload at my main job has gotten pretty heavy, but it’s tolerable and in any way shouldn’t be this way much longer. Basically just a temporary state of affairs. Countering it has […](image)

As in, how I spent the month of August I just didn’t have the urge for more frequent updates, so consider this a mega-update for the entire month of August. After months of near-agony my hours at the Major Home Improvement Retailer finally got more reasonable. Sixteen hours a week is fine, 18 even, but […](image)

One more week … one more week You know the feeling. You’re at work, it’s an hour to quitting time, yet that hour passes more slowly than the preceding seven hours. Actually this happens when you’re doing anything that’s less than pleasant and you’re hoping for relief. On a more mega scale, that’s how this […](image)

A reasonably tolerable weekend, all things considered. While I worked full 8-hour shifts at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, they seemed to go more quickly than I expected. Or hoped. I’m not sure exactly why that was the case. My best theory is that customer traffic flow was consistent. Many times, over the course of […](image)

DMV follies Today was the day. I couldn’t put it off any longer. Yes, I had to pay a visit to the local DMV office and transfer an out-of-state vehicle. While most of my recent DMV visits have been reasonably easy, I knew that this one would take longer because of the more complicated nature […](image)

Sameness All three of these days were as similar as peas in a pod. Each day at my main job was easy, and I didn’t have any scheduled shifts at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. It was a much-desired chance to rest and recover from all the work I’ve been doing. After one more busy […](image)

Eleven is not my favorite number Today was a bad day at both my jobs. What should have been an easy enough day at my main job wasn’t, on account of some unexpected complications. Instead of getting out a bit early, as I had expected, I worked until shortly after normal quitting time. As for […](image)

Two full 8-hour shifts at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. Okay, Sunday’s was 7 hours 30 minutes, big deal. What made these shifts tough was not just all the work I did, but the fact that I will be working three out of the next four evenings (Monday, Tuesday and Thursday). By the time all […](image)

Not home on the range It was a dreary wet Friday, and while I usually don’t care much about the weather today was an exception. I had been planning to go to the shooting range, for the first time in too long, but if it even was open it would not have been a pleasant […](image)

So much for an easy shift Another decent day to wind down the week at my main job. This really has been a very easy work cycle, I’m hoping that the one that will be starting a week from Monday will be easy too. We’ll see. It was good that the start of my day […](image)
