Immediately is February 2nd, Groundhog Day, and guess what – that weaselly little bastard noticed his shadow. Six extra weeks of winter for us! That was good timing for the fricken snow storm that got here in late yesterday afternoon and continued all through the night. Waking up this morning to fifteen” of snow on the bottom was not the way in which I needed to begin my Tuesday. As you may think about, issues solely obtained higher because the day went on (insert sarcasm right here).
I left my residence a little bit early as a result of the roads have been shitty and I needed to get to work on-time. I do not know why I bothered, as a result of everybody else (besides The Boss) took their candy ass time coming in (they usually reside in nearer proximity to The Nuthouse than I do). Once I turned down the snow lined, dust street this morning, I instantly noticed The Boss’ automotive parked on the facet of it – not in our lot. Yup, that is proper – the snowplow man didn’t hassle to indicate up AGAIN! I suppose since it’s Groundhog Day, it is vitally acceptable that we live the identical nightmare time and again! Now, I am not even going to offer hyperlinks to the opposite posts about him not displaying up as a result of it’s already assumed by everybody studying this weblog that that son of a bitch shouldn’t be going to indicate up when it snows!
I parked my automotive behind The Boss – on the facet of the street and trekked by way of the car parking zone to the entrance door. By the point I obtained there, I used to be seeing pink! I walked within the entrance door and rapidly declared on the high of my lungs, that this was complete bullshit and that dumb f*ck must be fired. Now, take note, my declaration was to nobody apart from The Boss as a result of my co-workers had not proven up but. I feel The Boss was shocked and a bit shocked by my outburst; for probably the most half, I’m a reasonably even- tempered one that doesn’t tend to over-react, out loud at the least, about issues. The Boss checked out me after which seemed down and reluctantly agreed, his “pal” wanted to be fired.
I put my stuff away, fed Frack and adjusted my pants and eliminated my boots. Yup, I do know that I have to convey dry pants to an workplace job as a result of our plow man makes us trek by way of virtually two toes of snow to get to the constructing. Once I got here out of the lavatory, I felt a little bit higher – I suppose being dry and a bit hotter helps. I heard The Boss leaving a message on his “pals” voice mail asking the place he was and when he anticipated to be right here. He additionally indicated that he ought to come into the workplace to select up his examine and that he had some issues he needed to debate. I can not consider he’s truly going to let this ass-face go…I suppose I’ll consider it after I see/hear it.
Round 3 PM (sure, 3 f*cking PM), ass-face arrives to plow us out. My wager with Drew was that he wasn’t going to indicate up in any respect (particularly after The Boss left the message on his voicemail), however he did. Rattling, I owe Drew one other lunch! He completed plowing and is available in asking me for his examine. I instantly advised him that The Boss had it and he went into his workplace – The Boss then requested him to shut the door.
I did not hear any yelling, however I did hear ass-face say he did not assume it was an issue that wasn’t capable of get right here earlier than we opened. He then stated to The Boss we have been a bit exterior of his plow vary. I then heard The Boss say that possibly that ought to have been advised to him previous to him being employed and it’s ridiculous that staff working in an workplace surroundings must convey dry pants on days that it snows due to trekking to by way of the car parking zone to the entrance door.
If I used to be a betting man (I suppose I’m as a result of I at present owe Drew two lunches), I’d have guessed that The Boss wouldn’t have fired his “pal”, however he did and for that colour me impressed! Now, I suppose I have to discover a new particular person to plow!
Till subsequent time Nutties. Say protected and heat and Joyful Groundhog Day!
