Loud And Obnoxious People

TTV - Loud And Obnoxious - 1.jpg

What up! What up! What up my peeps! Today is Tuesday September 25, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and seven days or rather yet, ninety-nine days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a being yourself or being an asshole note! Throughout my forty-eight years of life, I have met many people who I’d say, didn’t feel comfortable with being themselves around others. To be honest with you, I never had that problem. Wherever I go, I’m always myself. Well, except when the circumstances call for me to behave, like when it comes to my crazy and weird sense of humor and also saying what’s really on my mind. But that’s understandable. My thing is, that there are people who don’t know how to behave in public and they think it’s alright, because they are just being themselves. I guess that what I’m trying to say to those loud and obnoxious people is that… No motherfucker, you are not being funny or hilarious, you are acting uneducated, stupid and you are being a fucking dick and a fucking asshole! There… I said it!

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

A Couple Of Cold Ones

TTV - Presidente Beer - 1

First things first y’all! Today is Monday September 24, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and six days or rather yet, ninety-eight days and as always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT! No anxiety, no depression, no hangover, no regrets… I mean nothing!

On another sober weekend note! Today I am happy to say, that I had another great sober weekend. As I mentioned on my two previous boring posts, I thought that I was going to have two molars extracted on Saturday, but since that didn’t happen, I was just chilling like a villain at home. As usual, I did some shopping with the boss and she did have a couple of cold ones with one of her sisters… YES! YES! YES! She had a couple of her favorite beer from a twelve pack that I bought her about a week ago while shopping with her. Even though she didn’t want the twelve pack, because she felt that it wasn’t fair for her to drink alcohol, while I’m trying to stay sober, I had to explain to her once again, that I am the one with the weekend binging problem, not her. Plus unlike me, she only drinks once in a blue moon. Hey look, only because I can’t control my weekend drinking, doesn’t mean that I have to be an asshole and tell everyone, that they can’t drink around me. That would just be fucking selfish and stupid. In the beginning it was hard for me, but now I can be around people who are drinking and as long as I don’t reminisce or think about it, I’m OK.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

No Pain… Literally!

What up! What up! What up kids! Today is Sunday September 23, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and five days or rather yet, ninety-seven days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a not so painful note! Yesterday I did go to my dentist appointment, but the dentist wasn’t able to do the molar extractions, so he referred me to an oral surgeon to get the work done. Right now I’m waiting until Monday to call and try to set up an appointment for next Friday, that way I will only need to use one vacation day and I’ll have the weekend to recover quietly at home. He did tell me that I need a lot of work done and the reality of it is, that it is going to be expensive. The good thing is, that I have my salt mine dental plan, my FSA (Flexible Spending Account) and a credit card to get the ball rolling. Since both plans start every January first with a set amount of money that I can use for the year, after using up this year’s money, I’ll just have to wait a couple of months until January, to get more work done. One really good thing that came out of my visit today was, that since my wife’s cousin is the office manager at the dental office, she told me that she will speak with her boss, in order for me to get a discount on the implants. Woo-Hoo! I really can’t complain.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Extraction Day

TTV - Dental Tooth Extraction - 1

First things first my homebody and homegirls! Today is Saturday September 22, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and four days or rather yet, a total of ninety-six days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a dental note! I have been having problems with a few molars for the longest and I know for a fact, that they have to be extracted, but I’ve been looking for the right dentist that could do the job, since around a year ago, I visited a dentist who was just ripping my dental insurance and me off. As for payment, right now I have my fingers crossed, because if everything works out with my salt mines dental insurance and my FSA (Flexible Spending Account), the dentist will be able to do a couple of extractions today, without me having to pay anything out-of-pocket.

This time I did my homework, because one of my wife’s cousins, who lived with us for a while when she was a young teenager and who I see and treat like a daughter, is the office manager at the dental office and she checked with my insurance, just to make sure that everything was OK. The one thing that I made sure to tell her was, that if her boss does the extractions today, she needs to make sure that he gives me the good stuff for the pain… Bwahahahahaha! Hey look! I’ve been through this shit before and I just don’t want to feel any pain afterwards. As a matter of fact, if everything works out, I should be able to go back to the salt mines on Monday with no problem. Fingers crossed!

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

The Drug Dealing Role Models

TTV - Drug Dealer - 1

First things first my peeps! Today is Friday September 21, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and three days or rather yet, a grand total of ninety-five days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a role model note! On October 24, 2018 I’ll be living in the same neighborhood for forty years. During that time, I have seen a lot of shit happen around me, like drug dealing, violent crimes, shootings, dead bodies and the 80’s AIDS and crack epidemic. Even after growing up without a father for most of my life and experiencing all those things at an early age, I have to say, that I really turned out OK. The thing is, that I have seen and I still know men that are parents, yet they are drug dealers. But what bothers me the most is, that theses kids know exactly what their fathers are doing… and there is no shame about it on the father’s side or even the mother. In other words, to them, it’s just business as usual. Hey look! I know that I’m a weekend binge drinker who has been sober for only three months, that I have not, am not and will never be the perfect father or role model to my kids. But a few things that they can’t say about me for sure is, that I’m a criminal or a drug dealer, who have shown them a life of crime. You see, both my parents instilled in me, to always work hard and to always keep my nose clean… and that is exactly what I have done and have taught my kids.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

The Stupidvisors

TTV - Stupidvisor - 1

What up! What up! What up my homies! Today is Thursday September 20, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and two days or rather yet, a grand total of ninety-four days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

Don’t get me wrong now… I’ve had good, really good, bad and really bad stupidvisors throughout my thirty-three years of working for different employers. But the ones that annoy the living shit out of me are the stupidvisors who think that they know everything, but in reality, they know shit. The ones who tell me how to do my job, but they have never done it themselves. The ones who make all the changes, without consulting the people who actually do the work. Hey look! It’s not that I hate all the stupidvisors, is just that I hate the ones who think, that because they have a title and make more money than I do, they can dismiss my concerns, ideas and or opinions. I’m not saying that I don’t make mistakes, I do, but the way that I look at it is, that stupidvisors should first learn what my job function is, how I do my job, what it takes me to do it and how long it takes me to do it, before they come up with stupid changes and or tell me how to to a better job.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Wednesday Phone Day

20180919_0719073716311699025517446.jpg

First things first my peeps! Today is Wednesday September 19, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for three months and one day or rather yet, a total of ninety-three days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a salt mine note! Yes! Yes! Yes! and Yes! As the tittle implies, today is just another dreaded phone day at the salt mines. The thing about being on the phone is, that lately, other companies are trying to make customers switch from our company to theirs, which in reality, we don’t care, because they still have to use our infrastructure, so the company still makes a profit. But the thing is, that we’ve been receiving a lot of calls, specially from representatives from other companies, trying to pass as the real customers, which is a pain in the ass. I mean, how many times, can the same guy, call from the same phone number, with different customer names and different account numbers? REALLY!? The dumb-asses actually think that we don’t recognize their voices and that we don’t have call ID. There’s only two of us working the fucking phone everyday! SMMFH! But that’s the shit that I have to deal with all the time that I’m on the phone and that is the one reason why I hate it so much. The calls from government agencies are no problem at all, those I like, as a matter of fact, since I’ve known most of the representatives from those agencies for a long time, we joke around. But like always… it pays the bills and that’s what matters.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.
