King of the Random

Hola freaky darlings, assbags, fuckstains, cool cats, and the various other characters here in blogville. My many gracious apologies for not visiting your blogs in the last week. Towards the end of the holiday weekend I became ill.

It started off as a head cold and has now moved into my stomach. I, like the genious that I am, decided not to call off this week and have continued to work both my jobs. This is not a wise move. Call me a pussy or whatever you want(fuck you by the way!) but I DO NOT work sick. Thats what sick days are for. And if Im praying to the porcelin god and pissing out my ass Im NOT coming in to work. Period.

But I have a lot of shit that needs to get done, oh and that whole having money thing is pretty nice. So Ive just been a miserable little fellow.

First order of business for the day: The Crock Hunter.

Yes I know that by now this is old ass news, and pretty over played as well. I just wanted to make one point about this. Now, I loved Steve Irwin, that guy was the shit! But not only that.

You see, in our lives we come across VERY few TRUELY UNIQUE people. You might be thinking to yourself, "I know a lot of unique people."

No, no you dont. "But dasher..."

Shut the fuck up, no you dont. Your friend who hates society, dresses like a homeless person, and listens to obscure music is not truely unique. Pissed off at the world, yes, but not unique.

I feel that people like Steve Irwin are truely unique. They have this aura about them that is, well...its just not found very often. Period. So Ill miss this truely unique man who has entertained me since I was a little dude.

Second Order of business: Steeler Time!

Thats right haters!!! First game of the Steeler season starts tonight at 8:30pm. You may be thinking, "You mean the NFL season dude."

No, Im from Pittsburgh, it's the Steeler season. No one else exhists. Oh and to all the fucking babies in Seattle who are STILL bitching about the superbowl,


And here is the worlds smallest violin playing just for you. Go ahead, take a moment to cry and bitch that we stole the trophy, Ill keep playing while you cry...................Oh and to head off people at the pass, Im not talking shit on everyone in Seattle, I happen to like Seattle actually. A few friends of mine moved there recently and although Ive never been there it seems like a cool place. I mean, Ive met nothing but cool kats from there. So....

Ok done with that.

Third order of business: Strings attached

Anything you get in life, at least from what Ive found, has strings attatched. So recently, one of my jobs fired half of our billing department and decided to outsource it to another company. Well, the other company is only going to do half the work. My employers still need a skeleton crew to run things here.

I was offered a promotion with a hint that my job title would change. Well I just had a meeting yesterday about it. Oh, and I was sick as a dog and my nose would not stop running during it!!!! I hate when that happens.

Well during the meeting I found out a few things. One, myself and the two other people whom will be doing this are going to be extremely overwhelmed. A suggestion by someone leaving soon was that we need to hire another person. Ive gotten to know my boss well enough now that the look on her face during that suggestion stated no help will be hired. We are on our own.

This just cracks my shit up as the other people got fired for numerous reasons, one being that they couldnt keep up and they were very understaffed. So this should be fun.

The other part I found out was that my job title will not change, Ill just be doing two peoples jobs. Yep, Ill still be filing shit AND doing massive amounts of billing paper work.

What went through my head at that moment:


What I said to my boss when she gave me the appologetic look at this news:

"Show me the money"

They're already offering me a kick ass health package for this, but thats not going to be enough. I KNOW what an extra employee would make in this position. And since Im going to be doing two peoples jobs? Yeah, show me the health benefits and the mother fucking money baby!

End Randon transmission,

Dude out.

I liked Steve, he made me laugh.

dasher121 replies on 9/8/2006 7:19 am:
oh dont feel stupid, thats your team!!! be supportive, no matter how bleak their outcome looks.

hell, the Steelers had to go 8 games in a row last year to win the whole thing, 4 of those playoff away games. and they somehow pulled that shit off.

The Croc Hunter made education fun and at least he was lucky to go doing what he loved the most.

I have a sad realization for ya... when I got to take on 2 jobs this year due to " restructure"..they gave me a title change but as for money after they stopped laughing at us they told us we were lucky to still have jobs.. those who got laid off are now in better places than we are making more time I want to be first in line for the layoff. Give me a severance package

dasher121 replies on 9/11/2006 7:01 am:
thats pretty messed up and go figure, the people who were the "unfortunate" ones in your employers eyes were really the best off! lol.

next time you talk about money with your boss, walk into his office, tell him you are pissing out your ass, you are sick and came in on your sick days, want to talk about a raise, then threaten TO NOT LEAVE his office "no matter what" until you can convince him a raise is in order.

For added effect, clutch your stomach once or twice and moan.

Then tell him you really like his leather chair.

dasher121 replies on 9/11/2006 7:03 am:
hahaha, you know thats not a bad idea at all!! I like the added effect of stomach clench at the last minute, a little moan, maybe let out a little toot too hahahaha.

I agree with ya about the croc dude, I'll miss the 'Aww CRIKEY!'. I'm not a football fan so, I'm not a hater nor a lover. I'm a typical girlie chickie....and 3rd, before I got to the end, I was thinking to myself that I REALLY hoped you asked for a damn raise. I"ve done two people's job for the same amount of money and I left them high and dry for that shit.

Work just sucks. I need to find a self employable one where I can fuck off most of the day.

dasher121 replies on 9/11/2006 7:06 am:
self employment is the way to go no doubt. working on that myself. Have my own business running right now, but its not big enough yet for me to quit my day job.

but when that day comes? Ill do an Irish jig on my desk, right before I quit hahaha.


9/8/2006 12:25 am

This makes me really appreciate a former employer I once had. And would also proabably take me back in a flash if I wanted but I'm too damn overprotecive of my amazing lifestyle completely free of anyone or anything which has any power to tell me what to do.

But I digress.

I never really appreciated that that company had nearly granted me the freedom to slack as I pleased and simply liked me for who I was and also loved and appreciated the design work I did for them. I don't think I fully realized how truly rare it is to get a situation like that until somewhat recently.

Not that there was not occasionally some decent shit I had to deal with at that place, which I will not delve into, but when I stack it up next the the situation you describe it hammers the point home that it was a very rare situation which in many ways I did not appreciate so fully while I had it.

The good stuff.

* Starring member of supremely hip and popular department ( graphics/design )
* An nice 1M to 3F ratio which continually got better ( if you were a hetero guy that is )
* Work any hours of the day which suited you best
* Take on extra hours if you need more bucks at hourly rate - and there was never not more work to do
* Very high hourly pay considering distance from major metroplolitan center _ working there made you a semi well to do boy/girl of the farmlands/desert
* great health plan and 401k retirement savings thing included

But this was like my hometown backyard job and still being sort of a young youth at that point it just seemed ridiculous to just say "that's it, I'm here for life" and do something foolish ( for me at least at that time ) like buy a house and get married and have kids or something. So at some point I did become way too bored there and I went off on my rogue journeys to seek adventure, excitement and surprise experiences out in the globe at large.

And now here I am again living right around that place and am temted sometimes to go back but somehow I just can't get myself to do it. I think the point I'll make here has more to do with me than any point you may have been trying to make so sorry about that.

But I think I can't go back because I know that in some way that will eventually start to eat at me in a rather bad way is that I'll have to deal with what I call "idiot authority figures". And at some point I made a solemn vow to myself that I would never, ever put myself into a situation where that existed again.

Yes, that is the point I wanted to make.

I know now that I'll die much happier having done it "my way" even if it means I went through life like not beng able to afford gold plated toilet paper.

PS. If the owner of that company assured me that I would never have to deal with my former dept head I just might go back. But no go if he would still be my relative "boss".

Thanks for the comment man, as always in depth and thought out. Much appreciated for that.

I had a similar job in the past, a carpet cleaning shop where all 6 employees were between the ages of 20-26 and we were all friends, all drunks, and pot heads. Work was a ton of fun, and we knew our shit. Our boss was never around and we pretty much ran the business.

However, like you said, time comes for change and growth. I had to out grow that place and move on. Fond memories will always be about that place, but I could never go back.

First Order of Business - Steve
the man. if only we could only live our lives that way. doing what we enjoy. getting out their. making the most of life. at least we know its possible. and again I state what I have been. he went doing something he loved. too bad it had to be by the sea cow of the sea. seeing as how normally that kind of sting would be harmless had it not been aimed at the heart

Second order of biz-Seattle Vs Pittsburgh
Fawk you ya fawkin fawk! I saw that with love and I meant that. You're the coolest dude I know Dude. However I'm born and raised in Seattle and I did to a degree feel that game was a little , shall we say, "off"???? But I digress, Seattle rocks my friend come out here I'll show you around. I only moved two hours south and hell if the idea of Seattle doesn't excite you come to Portland we'll hang with all my stripper friends and have a drink! We got lots of them here

Third Order of Biz- The Job Of Two Men
I admire you're work ethics. I'm similar in it. If II know I'm contagious the last thing I want to do is put those I have to see constantly the option to share my disease. But in the case of the downsizing and giving you more work without the compensation. FUCK THAT. I would be doing exactly what you were doing..tellin em to show me the money

Hope you're doing better. I got to go play catch up on the blogs.
Stupid busy work week

Hell is when u should have walked away, but u didn't.

dasher121 replies on 9/11/2006 7:22 am:
hahah great comment lol. And naw, Im about as cool as falling into a pile of dung lol.

yep, agree with you on all fronts. Yes, the superbowl game was a bit sketchy, not the best playing from either team. The crock dude? couldnt say that any better, if only we could live that kind of life.

Portland aka Stripper town? hmmm, now that is interesting....
