Need a second opinion on whether this was funny.  Local facebook group.  Someone posted "Who hires 16 year olds?"

My answer:  "Pedophiles."

as the parent of young kids, I'll say this-  of course it's funny.

Yeah, my blood pressure was really elevated.  They said the anxiety was driven by my blood pressure.

On beta blockers now and trying to exercise more and drink less.   Meds are working and I'm back down to close to normal levels.  Probably need to drop 15-20 lbs and ride that new bike a few times a week.   Having roverkid home will help a lot, and my partner talked one of our clients into continuing a trial so that I won't stroke out.   

I also fired two of my most aggravating clients.

I 'd bet money it had something to do with the fact that he still hasn't graduated after all this time.

understanding that it's my fault for watching the morning news.. this whole scare tactics as news reporting business needs to take a long walk in the outback without water.

there's a big community event in town this weekend, the Bucks are in the NBA conference finals, the farmer's market (a big deal here) opens next week, there are new business developments in town, etc. plenty of local news to talk about.

but my morning news is 50% weather (the reason i tune in) and 50% "news now of a plane crash in the UAE this morning.  early reports are a crop duster went down near a farm outside Muzayrah. the pilot was killed..."

"in Mississippi today, a domestic violence incident left one man in jail and his wife in the hospital..."

"today in upstate Washington a man shot his family to death..."

 

THOSE ARE GREAT LOCAL NEWS STORIES FOR THOSE LOCAL NEWS STATIONS. BUT I DON"T GIVE A SINGLE FLYING ####.

TIA

I interviewed in early February and my first day is Monday.  The process seemingly took forever especially cuz my current department has big cuts coming and I know I was on the chopping block. 

Thankful it worked out

And not get in trouble with the law? Agreed.
