Sent off the letter to my association today so I only have to pay 1/4 annual dues. That's it. My engineering career is over. I am moving on to greater endeavours than building the infrastructure that comforts mankind and allows it to prosper at higher levels and gives it more comfort. I shall ba at Walmart first thing on the morrow and apply for a job as greeter. I am looking forward to getting my blue vest.

Fishin? Visitin? Nah. Besides my 36 hours a week at Wallyworld, I'll be busy writin letters. Now that I got nuthin ta lose besides my blue vest, I shall be free to write letters to the editors of various newspapers on various topics. Like pollyticians and their natural gas. Like jackin the price of medical maryjane from $0 a year to $28,000 a year for a lot of people who need it and can't even work due to illness or being physically disabled to boot so that large drug companies can pay off them there pollyticians. Like The Hair destroying our good gun laws while keeping the bad gun laws on the books. Like the bullshit at our hospitals where CATs and MRIs sit idle for hours per day because they are only used for emergencies while private clinics get $850 per scan. Like a strip club being allwed withing spitting distance from a high scool. Like office clerks with a high school education getting over $80,000 a year at age 55, full benefits, 6 weeks vacation and work 6.5... SIX AND A HALF fuckin hours a day! And REALLY important stuff like having our moose hunt at the end of September in hot weather (yet again, I don't hunt so leave me alone).

Yup. I got me a lot a rantin and ravin ta do and, as alluded to above, I been known to have some experience in that regard... good and bad.

Gee... I think I just ranted and raved a lot. Nuthin gnu, eh?

I got guns and they sell ammo. Maybe they will gimmie free ammo? That'll keep the freaks in line... "Ah, noooo, not you. Go home and put some PUBLIC clothes on ya FREAK!" JAYSUS! That shit is scarey! At best.

BTW... for Canucks. If ya turn yer pension stuff at a bank into a Life Income Fund er Life Income Plan er whatever YER bank calls it (my FA calls it different names in the same phone call but I record all phone calls) and ya take out the minimum amount, no tax is taken at source. Whatever ya take out between min and max is taxed at source at 10%. I did not know that. AND, ya can take out twice the max in one year, once. Since I have this odd feelin I ain't gonna see my 90th year... partaaaay!

When I read the title first, I feared gnu was retiring from Mudcat, in frustration with something we said or did to piss him off.

Happy that it was not to be so.

Later I realized that he is partly (or mostly) Irish. So, if we pissed him off, it would be more likely for him to stay and fight on :)

Here is a thought for the summer months. Take a course now and by summer you could be a life guard.

GREAT news! Just got a call from the head of human resources (yeah, that's what I thought) at Walnuts. They reviewed my application and, seeing that I did three two month summer stints* at Kmart when I was a teenager, I have been granted a "personal assessment" interview. I go tomorrow. One step closer to the coveted blue vest.

Stockboy (when we had no equipment and had to manhandle everything from feathers to stuff weighing way more than a man should lift), receiver checker/pricer and sporting goods sales man... I am the guy that sold all that fishing gear to the guy I met in the pharmacy buying sanitary napkins. So, I am a shoe-in for many positions! Life it GREAT!

Weeelllll......depends on your definition of "great"?

Looks as though we miss out on ~ something ~ by not having Wally World here in Oz. While staying in North Bay (Ont.) with friends we went to Wallies and I did make a couple of small purchases, items that I would never find here in a million years. Assuming I live that long.

Enjoy your sojourn with Wally, may it be long and beneficial!

I hedged my bets in case I don't score a plum job at Waltwits right away. I celebrated with a retirement gift from me... a PVR. I have just been messin with it. I can record two TV channels at once! I can record an entire series of a TV show. It's all automatic. So, I can flick in anytime I want and walk on the electric powered treadmill (gotta have a machine in Canuckistan on accounta it don't snow in the living room and the temp is 12C and there is NO blowing snow).

If I don't get the job at Walfuckthepoor, I'll get my exercise and be able to keep current with the news by recording The Daily Show every NIGHT automatically! Dunno about The Colbert Report... he's kinda too Republican fer me.

I once bought a car that my neighbour was retiring.

When I asked him about his old, used car. He replied that I should not look at it that way that, "you should not see it as old or overly used, but just that it is just "gnu-to-you".

Mustang ranch sounds good, Rap. But, In all the h/motels I stayed at, the rule from the manager regarding partying with the staff was, "Don't fuck any of the staff." and I assume it's the same at the ranch, moreso for employees.

John, not gonna work at Bud but I do have my app in for the NB Liquor Commission. I figure it would save me a shitload in gas.

Bobert... hahahahaa... the reason I find that sooo funny is that during my second summer of work at Kmart, I was receiver-checker for TWO departments (17 year old kid relaces 2 grown men - pissed off a bunch of people) and one was ladies wear. When I had slack time (on accounta I was a hard worker) the dept manager would say to me, "Go get the blue light, lad and we'll have some fun." He "took me under his wing." >;-) I'd get the rig with the revolving blue light and he would announce a "blue light special" on the PA. Dresses or whatever but the best was swimsuits. I'd haul some racks near the dressing room and put up the sign for cheap stuff. Ladies would come, try stuff on, walk OUT of the rooms because there was only one mirror. They would ask a man's opinion and Mr. Mills would always say, "I think one or two sizes smaller would look much better." And it did!

I did the pension paperwork done today and I get my first pension cheque issued and mailed Jan 25... BUT... the gubmit does not differentiate between the min and max withdrawl in my "Life Income Fund" in year one so the bastards get 20% at source so I can't play the low income game until next year. So the tour of Antarctica will have to wait.

NOW! for the BIG news. I shall don the Blue Vest on Monday after I see my ENT. Buddy just said, "Greeter? Why?" I asked if there was an opening in sporting goods. Not right now. "Do I get first shot?" Of course he said yes. "Can I be a greeter a few shifts a week until then?" We shook on it. Now I gotta find some pins. All I have is my Irish Association of NB pin. A greeter has to have a LOTTA pins on his vest if he is gonna look cool for the laaadies, eh?

Well! So much for that!

I got a call from my "new" boss. The Greeter supposed to come at 4PM today called in sick... could I come in and work 4 to 10PM and we'd do the paperwork Monday? I said 4:30 and it was a deal. I was excited!

I got my Blue Vest and started smiling. At 5PM, my new boss's young... ahhh... whatever the hell manager he is... says... "Somebody just puked all over a sink in the men's room. Grab the cart from the janitor's closet and clean it." I said that I didn't think that whs what I was hired to do, that I am a greeter. He said it's part of "other duties as assigned from time to time." I asked why the janitor couldn't do it. Gone to supper. I asked why a stockboy or a cart boy couldn't do it. He said, "Do it." and walked away. Now. I am 55 years old and I know what that shit is about.

I went to the locker room, got my jacket, left my key in the lock and walked away too. Did't say shit to anyone. Called me Mum and told her. She said, "Well, you can watch the football." ???!!! I forgot that after US college football is over, NFL football is played on Saturday TOO!. So, the game is on my TV, I am having an ale, and I am watchin the game as a Sharp Dressed Man. .

Tomorrow, I shall explore other alternatives. I was thinking about seeing a career consultant but those guys are just bullshit artists who tell you... hey!...YEAH!... a career in being a career consultant! I am GAME! I am definitely qualified. Not on the scale of some the emminently qualified bullshit artists that grace this forum with their, ahhh, musings, but I can hold a candle to their farts and illuminate.

Now THAT was a bullshit call... it was a SCORING PLAY and there was pass ineteference and they DID NOT REVIEW IT? WTF are the RULES for if ya don't follow them?

I like being retired. Fuck Walmart.

Wrote about it here before.... always got my work done no sweat and Mr. Miller, manager of lady's wear, would put on a blue light special and we would stand near the dressing rooms. Swimsuits specials and sun dress specials and HALTER & TUBETOP specials were my favs. The lasses would come out and say, "I need a man's opinion?"

Well. Having worked for an awful PRICK of a boss since 1996.01.03, the day I was officially self-employed, I looked forward to retirement. I ran my consultant engineering company with one employee and he worked like the dog I mushed.

I recently held a retirement party for him and gave him something he should have had for a while... the perfect gift. When he is using the oven in his stove, he can't see the time on the stove clock and, since the piece of shit microwave oven clock stopped keeping the correct time after only 25 years (ya can't but good quip anymore, can ya?!), it's a bother so I bought him a new kitchen clock and presented it to him at the big retirement bash! He programmed it and installed it on the weekend and posted a pick of it on

Buddy, me house ain't that big. But the new TV is! Wow! I can SEE it from 13' away!

I even bought a new chair for my office today... assembled!... for $100 tax in. My back is getting better already. The replaced chair had pillows and towels on it at over 18 years old so I guess it served it's purpose, even tho I paid 40 bucks for it!
