FML! We were supposed to be on the road this morning for a long holiday weekend trip. Instead, I'll be spending the weekend stuck at home, because both of my DW's co-workers came down with you-know-what yesterday afternoon. I just canceled all of our hotel reservations, because I don't want to spread it around if she was also exposed...or even worse gets sick on the road......

Sorry to hear. Hope your DW doesn't get sick, you either.

Ugh. That sux. Hope things work out. My 80 y.o. FIL caught it on his recent trip to LA. He's never been the healthiest person, but he breezed through it with very minor symptoms.

So the phone rings...on Black Friday...and the caller ID says that it's my cardiologist's office. The poor doctor who got stuck working the holiday told me that the gadget in my chest driving my ticker phoned home overnight, and reported that I have five months left to live (before the batteries go dead).

I sure do hope that these doctors remember that the device keeping me alive was not originally installed for full-time use, and that it included provisions for hot-swapping. As my primary cardiologist (I call him Dr. Doom) says, when those batteries go dead, you go dead.....

This is FML thread, not the I'm annoyed thread.

Like I said in the car thread that shut everyone down and they pivoted.

"We had to cancel our hotel reservations" JFC, a lot of you have lost any sense of reality for the average person.

More like.....



I'm sure that I'll be fine, but maybe I should have a private consultation with the BP-OT Chief of Stuff just to be safe.....

So more to add to my year of woe. Early last week I start to get an allergic reaction to something. Still don't know what that thing is. Started off as lots of itching of my skin on certain parts of my body. It progresses to full on rash/hives on my thigh, lower back, upper shoulders, neck, and eventually makes it up to my face. I look like I'm going into puberty again in overdrive. Broke down and went into urgent care on Saturday and I'm under a course of prednisone. So far it seems to be resolving the issue after my attempts with Benadryl did nothing.

To top it all off, I get a letter from my state's department of labor unemployment office. Some a$$hole filed a fraudulent claim. Had all of my sensitive information SSN, DOB, address, everything. Fortunately, my state flagged the claim and requested additional proof of ID that the ass couldn't provide. So no payments were made. Spent 30 minutes on the phone this morning talking to the fraud division. For now, I'm not filing to release my SSN for any new applications of unemployment benefits. Did some researching online and there were some news articles that pinned the release of PII from the breaches at OPM and Equifax. This further increases my anger that these a$$holes that were grossly negligent did not see any lick of jail time nor were personally fined for their gross misconduct. In both those situations, the person in charge knew of the vulnerabilities in their systems and chose not to address them. The bigger issue with the OPM breach is of all the personnel files they had that got compromised. Files pertaining to security clearance applications that the Chinese government has. Yet the person in charge overseeing the IT operations wasn't thrown in jail. But of course the token contractor got the shaft as the scapegoat.

Did they rule out Shingles? Shingles can cause pain. Is the rash painful?

Probably just an allergic reaction to something, like you said.

Expensive morning for me. My wife decided to back our 2 month old SUV into the garage before it was all the way up... bending the garage door and knocking it off its rails while causing some severe scratching to the car.

Just had the garage door repaired along with a fresh set of rollers for $1,300. As for the SUV, hoping it's something that can simply be buffed out and repainted as opposed to replacing the entire part.... but let's see.

^^^^Ouch. I guess my wife can be forgiven for tweaking her right side mirror on the garage frame.

So the part itself is $812 not including labor. Including garage door repair, my wife managed to do ~$2,500 worth of damage just like that... Happy Friday?
