My ex boss is a clown. I asked him for a FAVOR in removing a storm damaged tree in my front yard. I called him and asked if he could help me remove it, AS A FAVOR. He said he would but he didn't have anyone to help drive one of the two trucks needed to do the job in one day. I offered to drive up to the shop, load up the equipment, drive one of the trucks back down to my home, assist in removing the tree, running the chipper, clean up the mess, reload the equipment, drive the truck back up to the shop, unload and put away equipment and then drive back home. All said and done I drove a total of over 4 hours back and forth, worked for over an hour removing the tree and running the equipment, another 2 hours loading and unloading the equipment and the clown has the balls to send me a bill for $650 in the mail?!?! It was a FAVOR! I was never under any assumption either written, spoken or by any other means aware that I was going to be billed for this. Where was the estimate? When did I agree to that price let alone being charged? Why am I not being paid for my labor and services that I rendered? If I had known he was going to charge me $650 for removing one tree that I helped with I would have not even lifted a god damned finger to help or go out of my way. I would have sat back and watched him work all alone in the 90 degree heat and humidity while I sipped on a glass of home brewed sweet tea looking out the window from the comfort of my air conditioned home. I also would have called other companies for estimates as I know that what he is asking is way over priced. I know for a fact that one tree company would have only charged me around $200. As an example, I had another tree in my back yard get damaged by a different storm and was next to one of my sheds. He came out and gave me an estimate of over $3,500 to remove that ONE tree! $3,500+! The other company estimated it at only $550. A $3,000 difference to remove the same damn tree?!?! Yeah, I think he is smoking some seriously nasty shit. What a clown...

Great. Had a scheduling fuck up at work apparently. Got two closing shifts tomorrow and Monday. School starts on Monday. United closes at 11 p.m. Gotta get up early for cross country practice. Don't know when the coach is going to text us the time, but its likely going to be at 6 a.m. at least. For me to get back into normal sleep patterns so I can wake up on time, I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep. I'm not lumping all of the blame for this on them. Its partly on me too. It just sucks...

Also getting one, possibly two (as i'm not quite sure on the right big toe), ingrown toe nails removed this Thursday. The one on my left big toe, and possibly the one on my right big toe. Oh well, wont have to work for the next few days, but will not get back into my normal running pattern for maybe a week, perhaps more. My sports year isn't getting off to a good start. Not at all...

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

The people that work for me bent me over last night. I mean collosall fuckups of epic proportions. Why should I pay someone to do something 3 times before they get it right, when I could fire their lazy ass and do it myself right the first time. I dont mind inexperience, or remedial skills from a lack of natural talent, but I fucking despise willful stupidity. Guess what? I can do your job! Close your jaw mouth breather and do what I tell you to do, because you are all, obviously incabable of independent thought.

The majority of people would be much improved by getting their faces fucked.

Boy, I know some weird people.

This girl I know as a friend of a friend started flirting with me over facebook. She said I was really cute and sexy and she'd like to date me and blah blah blah. So we talked a bit and she was a nice girl too.

And then the boyfriend I didn't know she had started talking. He got pissed at her and borke up with her because she was flirting with me. She got pissed at me. I didn't know what was going on. Her boyfriend starting threatening me and calling me names (mostly fag), and so on and so on.

So what does this girl do?

"ILY Nate! My savior!"

Needless to say, I no longer have any plans to have any contact with her.
