Who I have not told I'm looking for another job. And if he knows, he might accidentally say something to my other co-worker who then could say something to my boss.

But I am so mad at myself for not applying all the same.
Apply and ask them not to say anything?

Really upset. Just paid $600 to get new tires put in my car. They told me all my tie rods needed to be replaced which they said is what is causing the joint popping type noise I hear when I'm driving and turning my steering wheel. They also needed to do an alignment. Another $550 later.... My car is still making that popping. It isn't quite as bad as before but if I paid them to fix it why is it still making that noise when they told me it was the tie rod issue that was causing it??? I'm upset.

The roads are still ****, 2 days after the snow stopped, and we're supposed to get MORE snow tonight/tomorrow. It's like they just threw their hands in the air and said "**** it! Who needs plowed roads? We'll let cars plow as they drive!" Except there was a LOT of snow, and it's 7 degrees, and the more cars drive on it, the more it gets compressed to ice. So right now it's basically ice, and the roads are worse than they were yesterday or even the day before. There is NO difference between side streets and main streets. Today they put a bit of sand on some of the busiest roads, but that's not doing a lot.

My mom, who sits at home, doesn't drive, and doesn't go out for days at a time, keeps saying "Of course they plowed! It's just a lot of snow!" Um, no. There are NO signs of plowing on the roads except for some side streets that look plowed by private parties.

That's all fine except for when "what happens" includes the possibility of "lose your job, can't pay mortgage, lose your house." When the business owner is actively looking for ways to save money, volunteering up YOUR SALARY as a possible thing that could be cut is a terrible idea...

MOOD SWINGS AAAAAAAAGH

I'm on a hair trigger temper and a growing chip on my shoulder.

Not good combinations for being at work.

I'm doing legs tonight so hopefully I will be murdering myself into a better mood.

Get your house fixed up, TerBear will move in and pay rent to help pay your mortgage, then no worries. Now We just need to find a job in IL. This 10 hour drive back home thing is a killer

Hahahaha... there's no room for anybody to move in and pay rent. Unless I don't live there, which defeats the purpose of owning a house LOL.

I'm all about more people moving here but you should probably wait until winter is over... and then maybe also buy another home to winter somewhere else.... because IT SUCKS HERE RIGHT NOW UGH.

I hate it when people unintentionally make comments that aren't directed at me, but make me feel shitty.

:/
