GM's Thread About Everything/GM's Thread About Nothing


Recommended Posts

I started coaching my kids' AYSO teams so I could be the one in charge of where and when we had practices. True story.

Assume canceled?

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Do all youth sports start at obscene times on weekends? Asking for a friend without kids (yet).

Wife got my 6 yo daughter into soccer that started at 8 am about 30+ minutes away from where we live. My daughter whined the first day and I refused to keep taking her to it.

Just depends, really. Personally speaking, I prefer having my games at 9am on Saturday morning so I can get them out of the way and enjoy a full day of college football. If I can get them all scheduled before noon, I'm a happy camper. I hate sitting around waiting for them.

Also, if you are thinking about coaching, consider joining the board of your local rec league, especially if the board has its monthly meetings at a pub. On top of the free beers, you tend to get preferential treatment with regards to your roster of players, practice location and times and game schedule.

you forgot the part about being able to yell at referees.

and the per diem and quarterly bonuses

I don't think it's fair that no one tells you in advance how much of a pain in the ### kids are. And they definitely don't tell you how the curve of going from 1 to 2 is exponentially worse than just having 1. I'm pretty much at that point where when I am home, one of the other humans in the house needs me to do something for them or is complaining that I'm not doing something for them. I can't even imagine what 3 kids is like.

4 seems like it would be way past the point of sanity.

Can you imagine people with 5 kids? Seriously?

That just means you are living with a woman.

GM, I will swap places with you for the next 15 years. I will gladly take 4 boys and 1 girl over 3 girls. Yesterday the 5 year old threw a fit every time we said no. She made a sandwich using the last piece of cheese, wanted to make a second one and i told her she couldn't since she just ate the last piece of cheese. Flopped on the floor and starting kicking and throwing stuff. Awesome!!! I know it is a phase, and she will grow out of it just in time for her younger sister to reach that phase.

Oh, and my wife managed to break the engraved wine glass she just got for Christmas. Apparently I have been doing the dishes wrong all these years. Instead of placing the dirty dishes in the empty dishwasher you are supposed to just toss them all in the sink. And the appropriate way to fill the sink in the following order: Wine glass and drinking glasses laying down in sink, cover them with a plastic placemat, place several dinner plates on top, add a few kids bowls, then put the large popcorn bowl on top so there is no way to use the sink anymore (but hey, there is nothing on the counter now), wait 10 seconds and then hear the sounds of glass breaking when something shifts.

Throw in some cucumber (Apple, potato) peels and some plates of half eaten food and the paper towel you used to wipe the kids faces and it'll look like my sink. Run some water or milk over it for good measure

If only there was a person who stayed home with the kids all day that could empty the dishwasher and load the dirty dishes as they get used throughout the day

Oh GD ####. This is a running fight at my house. I keep my mouth shut a lot of the time because I know if I bring it up ...some #### is going down.

WTF ...other than complete irresponsibility and laziness.

I know what it is, they watch all those damn cooking shows and the cooks never clean anything, they just throw it in the sink. Wives follow suit.

Yeah, that's what the sink usually looks like when I'm done cooking, too. I cook good #### and I use the tools I need to prepare it. I'm bad with the whole "clean as you go" concept, in large part due to the fact that I'm making multiple dishes... and drinking. Fortunately, my wife appreciates my cooking and doesn't mind doing the dishes afterwards.

It might be a three-way tie in sink-stacking if we threw my family into the mix, but nobody can beat my wife and kids at Trashcan Jenga.

Roverkid. And somehow she can manage to make the trash bag slide down underneath the trash so as to become useless.

Had a good story but it hurts to type since I fell down drunk yesterday afternoon and sprained, pull, everything in my left hand.

there he is!

:lmao: My wife has a lot of hot nurses at her work. Oh man. Me drunk around a lot of hot nurses was good times. I may never be invited to another work party again though. Guess I'll find out tomorrow after she gets home. Was pretty obnoxious. :bag:

:lmao: I miss those times ...waiting to hear what I said ...or did ...or groped.

My wife is convinced I'll leave her for a hot nurse once I graduate from RN school. I told her it's the vulnerable MILFs in the pediatric ward that she should worry about. She was not amused.

Nobody said anything to her about me which I'm pretty sure is a worse case scenario. Mrs. SLB swears "you were fine" but I have this vague recollection of falling down at the bar or going to the car after the game. Ah ####.

The car-dealer deed is done. Today we traded in Snoop and Bunny Colvin and bought the new car, Frank Sobotka. It was a shockingly painless process - no one even cried. It was a bit weird that the car dealer didn't look at Snoop - not only didn't have a mechanic review but didn't even walk the hell around the car or check the mileage. In fact, I just gave them some keys and said there was a car somewhere in their parking lot. :loco:

Missed this comment before. It was a one-year-old car, and obviously they would have done a Carfax and also have my signed odometer disclosure, so I guess they're pretty safe but I've just never had that happen.

They gave me more than the "excellent" value for trade-in on kbb, though there was some scratching/damage on the back bumper. If someone offers me a fair price, I won't spend much time nickel and diming them, though I did do one round to get them up to the "over excellent" price. These cars (Subaru) are so in demand here it's insane, and with production limited by their short-term lease to Toyota at the Lafayette plant, dealers can't keep them in stock.

The more important part was their taking the POS 4Runner off my hands for $2K more than my bottom line price. :thumbup:

Didn't like the 4runner? Thought they were indestructible, preferred vehicle if the Taliban

I bought it for that reason (indestructibilty not Taliban). We might have gotten a lemon.
