The Never Normal Weather of Alberta

Image
The cold season was ended nearly 10 days ago and now we're about to start May , the wind, rain and hail season starts. It was a little warm last night. Therefore I decided to leave the window open and sleep. I heard a noise which clearly sounded like an aluminum can being kicked on the street. First I thought it was a homeless who was collecting recyclables but the sound kept going. It felt like the guy was kicking the can from one end of the ally to the other end! Then when the curtain started flying to the ceiling I realized that it was a strong wind! I shut the window down and went back to sleep.  The next morning when I went out the signs of strong wind could be seen everywhere and the rain was non-stop! It rained all day long to this moment that I'm writing! I wanted to call The Brave to go to his place on bike so we could go to see the King together but I decided not to since going to his place in such a day that it's been pissing since the morning, would be a

Mi Amigo (My friend)

Image
I finally got together with this guy, a Hispanic fella, who used to live in the same dump(!) that I'm currently living, after a long time. I call him Amigo here which, as many know, means friend in Spanish and is a common term to refer to people from South America here in North America!  We went to Jameson's Irish Bar on 17th Ave., SW , based on his, I would say, request. That was my first time in there. From the beginning you could say that it was a nice and clean bar which offers both a little outdoor area, stools, tables and booth. My favourite, is always booth and when I entered he was waiting for me there. There are so many things about this fella which are all strange to me. That's probably why I'm staying friends with him. Before getting to the bar and the odd things about this guy, I would like to mention that I once decided to eliminate him from my life! I deleted his telephone number from my address book, removed him from my connections in LinkedIn

Passed through the Second Major Gate

Image
I received a message from my prospective employer a few days ago indicating that I've passed the Test/Interview! While I was quite confident and comfortable during the test and I anticipated that I most likely would pass, I was not sure about the interview because there's no way that you can trick an experienced professional.  This was a major obstacle and while I still have many more to pass, I feel a little releaved and for the first time after a long time, happy. Here is the list of the steps that one would have to pass to get the position, permanently. And by using that adverb I mean it would be a permanent position, unless a really bad mistake is done by the employee: Ref.

The White Boy

Image
I was going to start a supplement(!) under the category of Cargill Stories but then I though since a few of the stories were posted years ago, at the time I was employed by the company, it would probably not be such a very good idea, Then I thought it could be done despite that fact and I haven't made my mind yet! I worked for the company for a little more than 5 years and to this day I regret the fact that I did not get myself together to get the hell out of the plant sooner. I will write more details about the place and work but this one, which goes back to more than 12 years ago is about a very beautiful fight between a fat, disgusting, pig-like Lebanese guy and a Caucasian one.  The fat f*ck was a long-time employee and the Caucasian guy had recently joined at the time of this incident. I remember that the two had arguments a few times and the Lebanese guy would call him White Boy (!) every time they spoke. I really don't know what  the argument was about but

The Test/Interview

Image
I had to write a test and then attend a short interview for the next part of my career application. There was already one person when I got to the venue. We had a little chat and then four others joined. Three guys and a gal. One guy, who looked Oriental was the last one who showed up. A lanky guy who looked immature as soon as he entered by the way he behaved and talked! I will have more on this guy later. We all sat at a table and got ready for the test. Explanation was provided by a lady and we started. The first part of the test comprised of nearly 700 questions! We could take breaks as long as we needed. Most of the guys were fast and of course finished before I did. I guess the girl was the first one. The next step was nearly 300 questions and eventually you would sit to talk to the interviewer. The interviewer, a nice old gentleman in his late 60's , I would say, asked a few questions and jotted notes down quickly. I don't know whether he was impatient or that

A Motivation to Utilize Root Cause Analysis Methods

Image
** Notice: If you're offended by even mild sexual content, please avoid this post ** I did something stupid a few weeks ago. While this has not been the first stupid thing that I have done in my life, I wonder what the hell I was thinking when I even decided to take action on this! I went to a place that I have been once last summer and this time, unlike the last time a sort of Caucasian lady showed at the door frame. I use the term " sort of " because she looked more like Eastern European rather than Westerner Caucasian (!) and they are different. In summer, there was an Oriental woman, most likely a Chinese who provided the service. And she actually was good. Good massage, excellent body and good personality and behaviour. I don't remember about the extra service though. So I'm in there and this woman asks me to shower. First time I hear that in this type of environment and I'm completely OK with it. I had taken a shower in the morning but I di

Busted My Hump over March's V. Work

Image
I spent an entire morning in a disgusting, nasty McDonald's working on the damn volunteer work last weekend with the very high anticipation and hope that I can be the selected one again, this time for the month of March . Wrong! The result came out with a week delay and a complete disappointment: I was not the best one! I couldn't believe that and I still cannot. Most of my time in March was spent on preparation for this career that I've been pursuing, the damn very physically demanding job, lazing around (as a result of extreme tiredness) watching YouTube clips and similar(!) and doing nothing. I still expected that my work pays but evidently I was wrong. I'm still in the game, both in the volunteer one and the career. I have a few things that I have to do to get my career hiring process to the point that I only would wait for the results. Then I can focus on the volunteer job as well as, probably, the certificate that I abandoned and have to finish it.  April

Another Test: A Failure!

Image
** Notice: If you're offended by even mild sexual content, please avoid this post ** I wrote about a successful test(!) that I had a few weeks ago. Then I decided to test myself with a new material with the same nature! I had lots of confidence and got it back, I believed. So I went to this nearby place and I was greeted by a tiny Oriental girl. That was my first time in that place. The room seemed a normal one, seemingly clean and a soft music was being played. As usual the session started with a massage which was not bad. Then again as usual the question was asked that what I wanted followed by being asked to turn over. being confident from the past encounter I suggested to have coitus(!) and as expected, it was accepted immediately.   This however was a bit different experience. The girl let me to take her bra off and I have to say that her nipples were incredibly prominent! She was flat-chest, almost with big nipples pointing at me! My reaction to those, didn't both

A Nightmare before the Interview

Image
I had a big Turkey leg last night and I went to bed early but don't remember what time. They say Turkey makes you sleep and that was a big piece! Then woke up at around 23:30 and it was quite everywhere. Not a peep. Went back to sleep and woke up again around 04:30 or so and had difficulty to go back to sleep. I guess it was because of the test/interview session that I had today.  Then fell asleep again and had a nightmare! I clearly had it in mind when I woke up but I can't recall everything now! All I remember is I was somewhere that the streets were built in a sort of stairway shape! I mean you would drive and then you had to go up vertically and then you would go horizontally and you had to keep up like that! I wasn't driving. I guess I more of watching because there was this bicycle man who was dragging his bicycle up one of the stairs! That could have been me who has been trying to drive through obstacle and get to the final destination which is this career! Th

The Caribbean Pile of Shit

Image
There are a series of, pardon me, useless islands between North America and South America , where it's called Caribbean Sea . Sometimes I don't even know what to say to the people who believe in God and nonsense such as that! I'm derailing from the story completely at the very beginning but if there had been a God , why would he (and another thing not she! Who says that God is male?!) create the world in this shape that there are people born in the middle of nowhere with basically nothing!? These simple example, in the daily life, I wonder if they ever come to the mind of retards who believe in God and nonsense similar to that! I bet they have a stupid reason for that! It's similar to an idiot who once when he/she asked why people of different races exist. He (I guess it[!] was a she) said because God likes variety!!! What kind of stupid, retard should you be whom not only believe in such a nonsense, but also claim that you even can read the so-called God 's

A Good Physical Test

Image
** Notice: If you're offended by even mild sexual content, please avoid this post ** I decided to test myself a few weeks ago to see how good I was after years(!) of inactivity. I went to this place that I had been to a few times and I had enjoyed their massage and their unconventional(!) sex service. Sorry to be so blunt but that is true. Their massage is good and very relaxing and at the end they help you, most of the time, to relax even more, although I'm sure that their last part of service is not as good as what a Caucasian woman would provide. In addition to that, and in case you need to know, these gals are all Chinese . There's a big number of women from that country who are in this business in the city and evidently they're happy with what they do. I remember a few years ago the municipality tried to organize them but I'm not sure whether they were successful or not. Probably not, just like the way they tried to fix the problem with the basement sui

How Did I Start Saving on Fuel through ESSO?

Image
RBC announced they would cease their collaboration with Esso last year. I had an Esso Visa card with the bank for a long time and they changes it to a regular visa after that. However I had years of points accumulated in my card which although I was not worry about them much, I wanted to keep and eventually use them.  Esso sent me a reward card when the visa card was cancelled and I was told that my points had been transferred to the new card. I decided to check the card a few weeks ago and the attendant told me that I had loads of points which could be used to get gasoline for free. That felt good and I got $30 worth of fuel for the first time. The price of gasoline has significantly gone up in the past 2 weeks or so and that is in addition to the hike it had received after the government implemented Carbon Tax . Why is that? I have no idea. That could be the result of price of crude going up but I stopped listening and watching the news months ago because it's mostly no
