I had enough of a cold to excuse myself from work the Monday after Thanksgiving. I felt it coming on that Sunday night and took some Nyquil. I still wasn't feeling great so I stayed home and slept until noon. I wasn't great by Tuesday, but went to work the rest of the week, and it actually passed pretty well by Friday. Sometimes, IF I can get enough rest, I can chase them off before they blow out or at least within a few days. That works better for me than any medicine.

had a "minor annoyance" happen at Wal-Mart today. There was a wal-lady handing out free mint oreo candy bars so naturally the kids and I stopped to partake in the free goodies. While we were standing there a young man that obviously has never kissed a woman let alone been naked with one walks in with a Ninja sword in his hand. I am watching what he is doing when the wal-lady looks at me and at the top of her voice says: "Hey arent you a cop that works under cover?" The guy hears her so he does his best He-Man impersonation and sheaths it behind his back and runs thru the store. Hmmm.....first I am an officially retired Police Officer. If I was under cover I am pretty sure she would be the last person that would know what I am. Now I know why the local wal-mart cant retain loss prevention for longer than a few weeks...Mrs. Subtle probably follows them thru the store yelling at them to tackle the guy trying to smuggle a $3000 tv out the grocery side exit...Just another example why my 9mm buddy goes everywhere with me

I noticed it got worse from 35 on. I sip throughout the day when I'm stuck in the office. A lot of days it's nearly once an hour to the restroom. At least I know I'm not dehydrated...

It's not nearly as often when I'm out and on my feet. Even if I'm not visibly sweating, it seems I can hold out for half the day most times. Harder to judge hydration levels on travel though.

Oh hell, I pee all the time now. And it's not a problem with the plumbing that prevents me from emptying the tank... it's just that I drink fluids all day. It's every hour or two.

Fortunately, most nights I don't have to get up, and if I do, it's just once. I hear that gets worse as we age.

I mean, I create my own problem by trying to cram my water allotment in all at once. Chug a whole jug and then I'm whizzing every 10-15 minutes. :grumpy:

I don't have to go in the middle of the night, yet, but gosh dang it that'll suck. That'll just wreak havoc on the sleep.

I have the one a nights just frequently enough to remind me what is ahead. It’s bad enough trying to get back asleep after one interruption when you know your alarm is going off in an hour or two, but doing the whole zombie piss dance twice a night is unacceptable. I’ll have to investigate diapers if that becomes my reality.

I shipped something out to my sister back on the second, and it was estimated to be delivered the eighth. It's out for delivery today, after sitting in Atlanta for eight fucking days.

I guess this is karma for all those packages I got that came a day early.

Last year, right around this time, the local police department was hiring for a nuisance abatement officer. You have to go through a whole bunch of hoops to even get an interview. You have to take a test and then do a panel interview...both of which are by invite only. First you have to fill out an on-line form. I did that, then was invited to the test, which I passed and then was invited to do the interview. I've now done this THREE. TIMES. for the same position. The first was about 5 years ago, then last year twice, separated by about a month or two. At some point in that process you also have to fill out one of the most intrusive background info packets I've ever seen. Stuff I'm really not comfortable with anyone having.

I saw in the local paper yesterday that they are hiring for the same position....again, less than a year later. Which tells me that whoever they hired in that round I was part of, couldn't do it, or quit for whatever reason.
And after those last two times, I did try and contact three separate people who were involved, if there was something...undesirable about me...something that they just weren't going to hire me for....ever, like maybe I just didn't have the right kind of prior experience they were looking for....even though in the ad all they say you need to have is a drivers license, be a high school graduate and have no criminal background. I just wanted to know so I wouldn't waste me time applying again. Not one of them responded. My wife said that maybe they don't answer that kind of question because it would open them up to lawsuits. WTF? Even McDonalds would tell you if there was something they wouldn't hire you over.

Well, whatever the reason, I just wish they would have told me....even made up a reason why they couldn't or wouldn't hire me. I'm sitting here thinking about re-re-reapplying, but what's the point if I wasn't hired once out of the other three times I applied?

And the whole thing is so stressful to begin with....the testing, then the panel interview and the background info. The whole time hoping I'm doing everything right because I want the job and the police don't screw around. Then I don't get hired and I'm left wondering "was it something I said?" "Did I leave out or answer some part of the background info wrong?" "Did they find something in my background?"

Behind a camera watching you!
Well the good news is they probably would have ruled you out after the 1st or second time if something major was wrong. Unless of course you broke 1 or the 7 security rules

I don't remember all of them but the big ones were
1. no paying for sex with in the last 7-10 years (When Escorts services get busted they have records)
2. good credit shows you are responsible, & not in debt
3. They don't find out about major life desturbances like divorce (Usually before you find out) This includes cheating on a spouse.
4. Ability to actually keep a secret

I don't remember what the others were
