Two years ago today, we sat and watched in horror on live TV while an attempted putsch took place After two years, altho many of the participants who were involved with the violence have been identified, charged, and convicted, neither Trump nor the sitting members of Congress who supported the insurrectionists have suffered any consequences, leaving the rest of us fearing it was just a dress rehearsal….
Today was the first paycheck of 2023. The increase was 3%; the cost of living increase is 8.7%. It’s hard to be suitably grateful when your “merit increase” doesn’t cover the cost of living…
I had forgotten that Metformin causes both diarrhea and flatulence….
Why don’t I think coming into the office increases face-to-face interactions? Two loan officers walk in 1 ½ hours after I get here. They say good morning, close their doors, and get on the phone….
Of course the caveat is that we want a 32 hour work week with the same pay as we are getting for 40 hours. I don't particularly want to work 10 hours a day for four days....
However, it is Friday.
And the weekend beckons.
