... it does.
We haven't been feeling too Christmassy - what with the funeral any all - but today is the day I have to get the tree and decorations up.
Needless to say, Dij the Cat wants to help. Or possibly eat me. It's difficult to tell. Until you have had a cat leap at you from the inside of a Christmas tree when you try to hang a bauble, you don;t know the meaning of the word arghgetofofityoumonsternoowowow...
Then it does get worse. A kid tried to kill himself by throwing himself off the bridge over the river and has very badly busted his leg. So the road is closed, and emergency services are trying to get him out without doing any more harm. And my neighbour is involved in that for complicated reasons, so his wife - who is a carer - has to go to work but can I look after the grandkids? OK ... so I need to arrange a lift for Herself (as I have no booster seats I can't take them with me) so she can get home, as I can't leave sprogs aged 5 and 8 alone in the house.
Any idea what you do with kids? I'm totally out of practice, but I've given them the Amazon Prime TV remote and left them to it - and them have chosen the black and white original version of "The Wizard of Oz" which shows remarkable taste for their age!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...

You appear to have handled the kids just right. All kids that age need is a little amusement, and occasional feeding. As long as they're not tearing the place up or trying to kill each other, you're doing a good job.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
5 & 8 sounds like a demolition tag team! I think TV is the way to keep them occupied. Just don't let them near Netflicks I still get blamed for selecting 'Use This For recommedation', it was late I was drunk and 'Hobo With A Shotgun' sounded like a good idea!...
I'm at a bit of a loss because I was arbitrarily and randomly fired in the past week, finishing on Jan 2, with no payout of leave entitlement. Still not entirely sure why, I was working hard, doing good things. So I figured I'd drop in on old friends.
Howdy, CG. Am in India on an emergency visit to look after my 97-year old dad who fell ill in October. Working remotely for now and hope to be able to return to T.O before long. That sucks about being let go.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Not sure where you are but not given reason and not paid leave I'd contact the local govt agency (i.e. 'manpower ministry', 'dept of labor') even if to ask their advice
(and hopefully send a good strong 'fark you' back at the people screwing you over.)
If it's really as you've stated, what they are doing is pretty much illegal everywhere. (Even in the case of employee negligence/illegal act or employer going into receivership a reason must be given.)
Sin tack ear lol
Pressing the any key may be continuate
Sucks when this happens, especially when no one phones you to tell you why, at least then you might understand, but just to get an email, its a kick in the guts, especially when you have worked your arse off for the firm and made them LOADS of money.
Still, its just time to move on to a new contract!
Anyway, hows the guitar going? Did you ever learn sweep picking?
Yikes CG - sounds like you need a chat with WorkCover - I hope you & the family manage a good Xmas & New Year
