    No thus the circle lol see if it gets bigger first. I feel better and my fever is finally gone so I think I'm on the recovery side. Web md says there isn't much they can do for a spider bite besides administer pain meds anyways. I'm not a huge fan of pain meds. I will however admit there were moments Saturday where I legitimately thought i was dying from muscle spasm pain and the migraine. Just figured I got too hot in the sun

    i dont remember how it came up then but a few years ago on a camping trip my friend coined the phrase "cum helps heal" and overtime when someone gets sick or injured the response with in the group is "did you jerk off yet"

    My problem with with this is the story I tell alot of people, coming from the Navy working in a boiler room,if something breaks, I fixed it. Coming to the unionized oil industry as an operator, if something breaks, I have to tag it and go put in a notification and hope it gets prioritized for maintenance. Had a little 250# steam valve start leaking one day, I'm 100% sure the packing gland just needed tightening and I was more than comfortable doing it, But I was told when I arrived "DONT TOUCH ANYTHING, DONT PUT A WRENCH ON ANYTHING! THAT'S CROSSCRAFT AND YOU'RE STEALING A UNION BROTHER'S JOB!!!??". Ok so I put in a notification. 6 months later because it was ranked as the lowest possible priority rank, that teeny little wisp of steam turned into a jet of steam fuckin 10 feet long and the entire welded in vavle had to be replaced. We were asked why it wasn't prioritized higher, and I told this story. My boss's boss's boss came down and told me "Dude, I know your background, I give you permission to fix shit like that next time". Yes, Sir.

    Wrecked!
    I had the same problem ended up some bad make up in a j- box before you buy a new dryer test the plug with a volt meter.
    Edit: this also caused overheating of the breaker and caused it to fail. at least my house didn't burn down. dam the non electrician that did the work before me.
    they extended the run during a remolded before I bought the house and went from #10 to #12 and back to # 10s under the house.

    One issue we just ran into that made me internally rage. Who am i kidding, i bitched like a damn whiny teenager after a few Zimas.

    One of our high apprentices whose about to turn Journeyman had a week long class scheduled two weeks ago. Summer is our absolute insane time for work, they wanted him to not work and come to class. We requested an extension and they denied. We requested another extension and made a few phone calls explaining the situation and how they should understand. Hes not trying to skip on the class because it will make him a Journeyman, its just not a good time right now. The union came in the next day and threatened to remove that person from the union completely if he does not go to the class....

    You have someone who has spent 5 years working their ass off, up to date on union dues and is a real good employee on our end and a great talented installer. You want to throw him out of the union because you scheduled him during the busiest time of the season and we requested an extension? This is whats wrong with the union.
