The Shit Show Part 205 the Coronavirus from 2020 continues.
Shit Show Shit we just don’t even want to touch: The trumpery shit…nope…leaving that shit alone, shit BGONE
Shit Show Part 297 X-rays confirmed that the hardware in my back is not as tight as it was, screws are loose. (But we already knew that about me.) Surgery is thankfully not recommended at this time. Continued pain management is recommended. I hate narcotics. I’m coping/managing/living/dying/here. All is well. (NOT)
Shit Show Part 304 San Angelo’s water was contaminated with numerous chemicals, cleared for most areas but still a danger to some residents. No concrete answers have been provided, in depth information can be found using Google. I won’t bore with the details that have been made public. I could speculate, surmise or whatnot but in all fairness I do not have all the facts. Needless to say we had a few days of trying to maintain hygiene through creativity and good old fashioned common sense. Baby wipes, body wipes, facial wipes, sanitizing wipes, bottled water…I don’t have any favorites but I was ecstatic when we were given the all clear and I could get in my shower and luxuriate in a hot shower.
Shit Show Part 401 Snow, heavy snow, strong winds followed some sleet and rain…the results have not been favorable for most of Texas. Here (as in most every other city, state or municipality I have ever lived in) people are idiots on the road on the regular. Add rain, traffic accidents increase, throw in some sleet and fatalities begin to occur…mix in some snow and you get a shitfest on wheels. The State of Texas is not equipped to handle this type of weather, State workers are scrambling to order supplies and equipment to treat the roads. February 11th saw a massive 100+ car pileup with numerous fatalities and many more severely injured. Hundreds of families have been impacted, the true toll will never be truly known. It is now the 16th, we (mainly me, since I am the author of this) expect that the roads will not be completely cleared statewide for some time, a week, two…more. We are expecting rising temperatures which will help to melt some of this messy stuff….you know that white stuff called snow that looks so beautiful and postcard perfect when we look out the window…yeah I hate that white shit…
More crap, cause it’s still early in 2021.
Shit Show Part 424 I started my work week last night, went home to a cold house, power had gone out between 3-4am, it came back on at some point for maybe 10 minutes. Lunch was had, yay for gas stove. Then Part 548 of the Shit Show...discovered a burst water pipe. Had to shut the water off. Think we are going to find a plumber to come out in this crazy snow packed day? Nope, the plumbers have nice caring bosses that are not going to send them out for their safety. So no water again…oh but thankfully I had showered before the pipe busted. The man valiantly tried to fix the problem, but alas it was not feasible, but not for lack of trying, poor guy ventured out to the home improvement store 3 times. He also called plumbers and explained what was going on.
Shit show part 696. Busted water pipe at the shelter I work at. More than 50 % of the facility was flooded. The facility directors did get restoration experts to come out, they currently have tons of equipment going, so while I thankfully have heat, water and WIFI, I also have the alarm system chirping incessantly, I have the loud humming of the huge industrial fans, the stench of wet carpet….but hey I have heat, so all is good. I can always pass out later from the fumes. First photo shows water in the janitor closet, you can see the mop bucket filling up. The second is our Children’s Activity Room (sad face)
There is a lot more Shit Showy Shit but this is a good enough summation.
So 2021 what else you got???
