    LOL. My pop actually can't hear high-pitched voices. So, he'd just look at us, frowning, and say, "I can't hear you. Come back to me when you want to use your regular voice." Air-force vet.

    My GOTD: Curling in the squat rack. Again. Just like every day. Just when I need it. Then, of course, it's free the rest of the day. Ahh, first world problems.

    I hate curls in the squat rack, but I might hate what I call "squat shivers" more. This means putting at least 3 plates on the bar, wrapping your knees, wearing a lifting belt, picking the weight up, then moving your ass down and up no more than 3 inches while grunting loud enough to clearly want everyone in the gym to look at you. Get out of there and let me load up 185# for some serious ATG squats. Jackwagons.

    My gripe of the day is parents who take advantage of any opportunity to leave their kids in someone else's care. Kids jiu jitsu class ends at 7:00 p.m..

    7:30 is time for the competition team's practice. All the other parents were here for the entire class, but you're too important and busy. So I've been trying to run a training session for 15 minutes (meaning you're 45 minutes late), but I have to keep stopping my workout and the team's to A. make sure your kids aren't running out the door into the parking lot B. pick up our magazines they're dropping on the floor C. stop them from beating each other up D. keep them from spilling water and/or gatorade all over the floor. Every. Week.

    These are the same parents who drop the kids off at the public pool and expect the lifeguards to be babysitters. GRRRRR

    GotD: as all evidence points to our positions being eliminated in October do not keep bothering me to spend the tax payers' money. I am not spending $40+K on stuff that will sit in a supply room gathering dust in a few months when we are all unemployed. As a tax payer this offends me. F' off.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony
