Yep it is narrowing down on us more and more, even at the outside edges of the cone path it is going to super suck for us.

Rave: Finally got a new screen in for that broken Galaxy S4, installed it without breaking anything, and it's just as lovely as I'd imagined!

Rant: It's PIN locked and the battery needs to charge.

Double rant: All of the USB cables I have lying around the apartment are crap and it's not charging very quickly.

Rave: But I fixed it without breaking it further!

Rant: Samsung's desire to keep you from modifying your phone combined with AT&T's doubling down on all that is such a hassle.

Rant: The only Samsung cable I have in the apartment is extremely finicky. It's like playing Until Dawn here, trying to hold everything still while a 2.5GB file tries to install, with even the slightest of bumps breaking the whole process. Feel like I'm going to be attacked by a Wendigo any second here.

Rant: We are due to leave for vacation on Friday. My husbands boss called him yesterday and said due to the hurricane two weeks ago his leave was being cancelled. We offered to move it out another week and she still said no. His job is not essential and the other inspector said he could cover anything that came up and still no. So I am now going on vacation without my husband which really pisses me off. Oh and did I mention his mother also passed last week? So he could really use some time away, his boss sucks and is being a bitch about it.

I don't know who he works for but look in the employee handbook there will be rules about stuff like that including bereavement leave as well. Go over her head to HR or whatever. They may or may not change anything but it'll establish a pattern of how awful she is.

That sucks pretty hard. I really hope you get it sorted.
Here in the teat-sucking British public sector, I'd simply get a medical certificate from my GP saying I'm not mentally fit to work due to the bereavement, but I understand some people have actual real jobs.

Rave: Papier-mâché back door replaced with something far more solid. Alarm system fitted. The perimeter is secure; and I can sleep a little easier.

No no. But we had been a soft target in the new house. The previous owners didn't seem particularly concerned about security.

Also, that apparently means I have a Bacon number of 3.

Subtweets? Were you the one in the desert bus shirt?
I'm putting my talents and skills to use for a business so that I receive compensatory funds that I may then choose to spend and invest and save as I see fit. If I choose to blow it all on hookers and Dr. Seuss books, I don't see how that means you owe me a comfortable retirement. - Deacon
