Let's Grab Lunch First!

Image
There hasn't been absolutely nothing but work for the past month or so. I t times up to 11 hours a day! I came home at around 19:30 and had started at 07:00! I will have to be at work as well but happily won't have to start early. Something really interesting happened that made me to write now.  The Tote Lover and I were to move to the site, permanently a few times. I spend all of my time at the site. I go to the office, or perhaps I should say I used to go to the office to discuss something with The Tote Lover in person or print a drawing, get a coffee or bring a tool. So it was not an issue for me. The Tote Lover though seemed not very interested in. He told me that he was moving and asked for my help, finally this past Thu. I went to the office and helped him to get his stuff to the trailer at the site. When we put the main box I told him that I had seen food in the main office. He said: " Let's grab lunch first "! Imagine a fat f*ck who barely walk and his be

Another Reason to Buy an EV

Image
I went to this dealership to get my oil change the other day and do you know how long I had to wait? 2 freaking hours ! I don't care anyone notices which dealership it is but these thieves charged me more than $85 just for the damn oil change! Did nothing else! Imagine that I earn $15 an hour. So the total cost of my oil change would be more than $100! I tried the other dealerships but they were all booked up. This is another reason why one, how is financially stable, should think of buying an EV , preferably a Tesla ! Gasoline price jump does not affect you. You don't have to line up for the damn oil change, no spark or mostly, no other mechanical part change, comfortable and enjoyable drive, you name it. However people still prefer to spend $60,000 on a pick up truck rather than an EV . My employment situation is uncertain. I don't know if I will be in after these projects. Otherwise I would go to Tesla website and would order one, specifically now that I have put arou

Betraying your Older Brother

A few Ukrainian s have joined our team as labourers recently. I can tell much about them because I don't want anyone to know who they are. Protecting people's privacy has always been my first priority here. Most of them don't speak a work of English . There're one that I have talked to several times and he is engaging. Even provides suggestions at work although no one gives a damn! There's another one acts as the translator for others. Once I asked him: I always though that Ukrainian s and Russian s are brothers. Why happened? He and one other who understood as well shrugged and said they did not know! Devsatation in Ukraine. That is how Russians fight. Try to find photos from the time that Soviets were trying to capture Berlin. You see not much difference!  There's no doubt that it was the plan by the Western countries such as the US and Britain , as well as France and a few other tiny puppets of the first three to cause issue and make these two countries fig

The Real Canadian Super"asshole"

Eating out and taking home is part of Western eating culture and has contaminated(!) other cultures which have long history of cooking good food at home. I hardly believe anyone cooks anything at home here in Canada if they're Caucasian . If they do, it'd be limited to throwing something on a barbecue or in an oven or asking Chef Mike to cook it for them! I have a picture of Chef Mike  here in this post. Tell me he does not like familiar!  I have resisted to this disgusting habit, which is part of Fake Economy concept, which will soon be another topic, but admit there have been times that I had to get something to save myself from starvation because I simply was in a situation that I could not cook, say, on a road trip.  I'm now going to review a packaged food from one of the biggest thieves in North America, or perhaps I should say, in the world called Loblaws which operates under different names in different cities and provinces. This food is from The Real Canadian S

America's Gift to the World

Image
I was driving home last Fri. and saw a certified(!) copy of America's gift to the world in the City of Calgary , which is called the Heart of the new West ! This city and in fact the entire country has been turned to the new Toilet of the Old West! Here's a villager from Afghanistan in his traditional clothing and a bag, looking lost in the heart of the new west! This is one from millions of Afghan s who started leaving their country when the fundamentalists, backed and supported by the US , Pakistan and some Arab countries, started destroying the country. When the Soviets cross into Afghanistan  first in 1979 it was for the purpose of stopping that country from going backwards where the Taliban and other US backed and founded groups(!) including Al-Qaeda wanted. Sadly it didn't work because all the above countries found and still find a backward Afghanistan a better country for themselves! I have nothing against the poor people of Afghanistan who have been sufferin

A Tiring Test

Image
I received an invitation to write a test a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know what it was or when I had applied for that position! It's mainly because I'm very tired at times and have a lot on my mind. I read the e-mail and remembered what it was about: An administrative position with the CBSA !  No offence to the CBSA but I found the test very degrading and of course I'm not going to reveal anything here as I've signed before doing it but that was traumatizing! When I read the posted position I didn't really realize that it was for that kind of job. Doing the test made me aware but I couldn't go past the 15th question or so! Again, I appreciate the CBSA giving me this opportunity and it'd have been great, if I had been strong enough to pass the exam (which the results have not been posted yet) but it was impossible for me!  Part of the problem was where I was sitting for the exam(!) and the other part was the stress I was under to get back to work bec

The Comfort of not Having Many Choices

I watched Collateral , a 2004 movie, in continuation of my Old Movie Streak (!), if I could say that, yesterday, although an 04 movie might not be considered " Old " in comparison with others that I've recently watched and they were from late 60's or early 70's! I will write about them later.  The movie, at the beginning, seemed slow and grim! If a movie starts with dark scenes, such as night or indoor with poor lighting, it'll throw me off! It could've been my screen though! I resisted and then the story began! Very good story and Cruise has been great as always. In fact it could be one of his best performances. Foxx is who have been praised for his role a lot and was nominated for an OSCAR but we all know what OCSAR means! Not that I am degrading Foxx 's performance. What I'd have like about the story is if Foxx 's character would have assisted Cruise 's and teamed up with him, instead of being a whining bitch! I guess the screen writ

The Freak Show

Image
The awards of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences , also known as OSCARS is considered the highest honor for a professional who is in film business, at any level. Is this true? No! Absolutely not! It's a total BS ! Anyone who has a functioning brain in their skull knows that like many other things, OSCARS is politically manipulated! When a nonsense such as Argo wins the Best Picture what can you say about it? is this anything rather than targeting a nation?! The speeches are the most ridiculous and the selection of the hosts and hostesses are just silly. Not to mention how the majority of these creatures dress! The moment you say something, you are labeled as either a sexist, a misogynist or a racist(!) but they can dress or talk the way they want and it's not offensive! An example of that would be these two creatures(!) here in this photo that I've selected from the last OSCARS ceremony. Why would a normal human being dress like these two? I know why but I

The Panicked Fella

I was at work few days ago and one guy turned to me and asked if I was Quality Control . I confirmed and he seemed not happy about something. He mentioned about a thing that I had done long time ago and said it was wrong! He added that it was wrong because " they " had done it differently! I explained to him that I had done not without being aware of what " they " had done and we could fix it. It didn't calm him and he went " I worked in Quality for eight years! " Here's the problem, or perhaps I should say " one of the many problems " with a pathetic and stupid company: Everyone could do anything and they call it being " Versatile "! A electrician could be Site Supervisor , a new graduate kid from school could be Project Manager, a guy could do manual work on site and be called Director, whatever that means and so on!  This normally happens in the companies which deal with low-tech project but that is not that. A guy who just

Strange Feeling

I work at a site, most of the time, not in an office now that it's been close to 3 months that I've been offered this position. I'd say most of my time, more than 90% of it, is spent at the job-site. I go to the office in the morning, I get a coffee, collect my items, I go to the The Tout Lover 's office, we review the day's activities and plans, we have a little chat and I head out. I don't have time to interact with anyone in the office and that is if there was anyone who I wanted to socialize with. There actually has only one person: The Golden Hair Lady . I do not believe that I've ever have seen such beautiful hair. It looks like you've melted pure gold and then passed it through a mold which make it look like long strings!  We had a little interaction that made me hopeful to ask her out. Things changed last week. I was in The Tout Lover's office and when I came out she was there and then went to someone's office and sat there with the door

Dumb, Lazy and Fat!

Image
Alphonse was here last week and finally we were going to have a nice hike after a long time discussion and planning. Good? No! Not at all! It was an embarrassing failure! He landed in YYC and I went to pick him up what I saw was quite shocking: He has turned himself to a fat-fuck who barely can walk! He was in shorts and shirts and like most people here in North America showed no shame! I would never be able to dress and walk in the public like that: A wrinkly stupid short above the knee which shows out-of-shape calves and big belly like a pig, shabby t-shirt to expose hairy arms, not clean-shaven and bald! How the fuck a decent and understanding man walk like that is beyond my imagination! We tried to rent a car but the bastards said either there was nothing available or they wanted us to rent for two days. I realized that we should have rented for two days, later!  A small bottle of Gatorade, 591 ml, have you seen anything more ridiculous than this? 591 ml! has 34 grams of sugar! W

Two-Face

Image
My two-face personality/character(!) finally worked and I deprived The Tout Lover from vehicle privilege! I really didn't have a problem with that but the fact that he would call me every now and then and in the middle of the work bothered me a lot. I obviously never said anything but every time I had to leave, I would told a few important guys and then two times they had to give me a ride and that triggered them. I, then, piled up by supporting them when they were pissed off and saying nasty things about The Tout Lover !  One of the fellas, whom should be called Smoker here said: We'll get to the bottom of this! And then the other guy who also was not happy about it and who should be named Horseshoe , for the style of his mustache, send an e-mail to a manager and the manager called The Boss and then he called me and asked me questions about The Tout Lover and the vehicle. I was honest and that was it. He told me that he would not be allowed to take the vehicle home any mor

Production more than Needed

Canada introduced itself as the Trash Bin of the Word to the universe(!), many years ago. If there's a smallest issue at a corner of the world, people rush to Canada to not only benefit from the free services available to them, but also ruin the country as much as they can.  The question is why Canadians do not care? First of all, most of them generally DON'T CARE about anything but themselves! I DON'T CARE was the first expression that I learned from Canadian s I learnt when I first came to Canada as an immigrant. And I have to stress here that it took me 5 years to get my visa. Unlike the lying refugees who, mostly, have false claims I had to go through all sorts of screenings to get here and I had to bring a good chunk of money. So that was the first reason why Canadians do not care! The second reason is Canada , like the US , is ran by corporate and greedy people. All they care about is their wealth and to increase that. They keep bringing crappy cheap shit from Chin

The Complicated Creature

I think there is barely anyone who has as less experience as I have with women! Most of my relationships starts well but either ends without a result after a short term or gets bad and terminates itself! That's why I'm divorced twice and have been without a meaningful relationship for a long time! I'm not a bar guy and even when I was younger I barely went to bars to pick up girls. A few attempts I had were all failures! I remember this one time that we were in downtown and I was chasing this girl down 17th Ave., SW and she went to this convenient store! I was drunk and can't remember much but I think I was lucky that didn't spend that night in a police station! Now at this age my chances of meeting women, particularly nice ones, is very slim and decreases day by day. I asked the Blue Eyed Lady out but she said ' She would not hang out with the guys from work ". I sent her a birthday card after I left the company, which I don't know if she ever receive

A Good Tool

This telephone that the employer has given to me is really good. It has features that my own telephone doesn't including this sort of pathfinder, if I can call it, which shows all of the lights and cameras on my way! In addition to that it gives warning way ahead so I can reduce my speed, if necessary. That's probably something that the Government of Alberta wouldn't like but there're even signs which shows there's a camera ahead and when I'm listening to the news on my way to work every morning, they even mention if there's a police car with camera at a side of a road. I don't really know how it works! You put someone and pay him and for vehicle to catch the offenders and then some else tells them you're doing that! The who scenario seems stupid!  (Photo: A screenshot from the phone while I was driving in Downtown Calgary. Speed limit is shown as well, at time. I don't know why not here!)

Dumb and Dumber Organizations!

I had a number of issues when I worked for that German company for almost 5 years. Now I can see that those, could not even be considered an issue compared to what I have seen so far here, only after 2 months! I've seriously thought of quitting a few times and then I collected myself together and decided not to do that. It's not just the fact that there're not many good positions available out there but the thing that the industry has now great stress on the sort of knowledge and experience that a few years ago could barely be seen. Not to mention that I wasted a great deal of time, practically from early 2016 to early 2022, 5 freaking years, switching from this stupid job to that silly one! So technically I'm behind everyone who had a position same as mine in 2015, almost 10 years, if they continued their career without much obstacle and haven't made the same stupid mistakes that I've!  With that said, here's a list of strange, unusual, stupid and unprofes

An Unusual Encounter

Image
We had test planned at work a few days ago and it was assigned to a third part although that is the same which I and The Tout Lover have recently been certified to. His idea was that it'd better if we see it done once by an experienced professional before we start doing it ourselves. Not such a bad idea but in fact I believe it stems from his stupidity and laziness. Not to mention that he's old, sick and have limited mobility. Don't get me wrong I'm not making fun of him. These are all true. I even realized that he has a bit of shaking in his hands. Overall I have mixed feelings towards him. One part of me dislikes him very much because he's an obnoxious, I-know-it-all, fat-fuck, belligerent, idiot. The other part doesn't mind him and tries to work with him because I need money and experience and he has helped me at time.  So we go to the testing place, next to the site and we see a tall, skinny and pretty girl. She's even taller than me. She performs the t

I've become George

  I cut my tie with The Chef almost a year ago. I got tired of his stupidity, his lack of understanding and recklessness. I tried to help him a few times and he never listened and messed up his life. I don't have even near a ideal life myself as a result of big mistakes I've done in the pat 5 years or so but I've not fallen as deep as he has.  With that in mind, I remember him going to a nearby Safeway everyday after work. Why? You don't need groceries every day but when you're alone stepping in a store and just seeing people and having a exchange of words with a cashier helps you and that is why he went to a supermarket every day after work! He also tried to connect everyone available! That's how desperate he was! He had a friend(!) who was homeless or had become homeless and would spend his nights in DI ( Drop-in Center ) until they gave the poor guy an apartment and he turned it to a dump. Stories of such, about The Chef , who claims that he is a political r

iPhone needs to Cool Down!

Image
I've never been a die hard fan of Apple . I was amogst the very first ones who purchased an iPod and then I exchanged that with an iPod Nano . I got 10% off and everyone at the damn Apple store was surprised by what they saw! Morons! That was it. My cellphones have so far been Alcatel , Nokia and the most recent one, a beautiful, reliable and nice Blackberry . However I have been given an iPhone for communications by my new employer. It's okay. Lots of thing that I'm not familiar with but learning.  Now, In July , we have had a few heat warning by Environment Canada , so far. I believe the warning is issued once the temperature passes 30 ℃ . I was on my way back home one day and had a quick look at my phone while driving and this message that you see was on the screen!  I also saw a similar message when I was at site yesterday, just a bit different. The phone was looked by itself and none of the keys or the screen would work. I had to keep it in shade for a few minutes

Rogers' Silence over the possible Cyber Attack

Image
My phone was down this past Fri. , from the early morning, when I was leaving for work, until I came home and after that. It was fixed the next morning. It was said in the news that nearly 10,000,000 cellphone customers and almost 2,000,000 internet users had been affected. The problem was later fixed in  the early hours of Sat . How has the power to cripple one of the largest communication systems in North America ? It can't be a lone guy sitting at his desk in a small town the US or alike. I'd say that was a planned Cyber Attack . Rogers called it Downtime for Maintenance and Repair! Who are you fooling? Canadian s?! Yes! You can do it! After all as long as their cellphone and service is back on, they don't even care what happened since they can update their profile status and post more photos of themselves! Fancy cars are part of Stampede. You can see really nice cars in Downtown Calgary. I think the rich collectors just brings them out during this time of the year! No

Two Tests for the Job

Image
I was told that there would be tests which I would have to pass, when I first had my interview with The Boss-to-be . I didn't mind. For that job, I would have written as many job as they wanted me to! Not that it's something significant with a high salary! I just wanted to get the hell out of the shit-hole I was in and I still go to once a week! It reminds me of that episode of Seinfeld named The Chinese Restaurant : Jerry , George and Elaine have a plan to catch a movie but want to grab a bite before that. They go to a Chinese restaurant and wait to be seated. The wait is unusually long. While they're waiting Jerry turns to Elaine and goes: You see that table over there? There's a $50 here for you, if you walk up to their table, say nothing, grab an Egg-roll and walk back here! Elaine goes: Are you serious? And Jerry says: $50 ! Elaine this time turns to George and goes: What do you think George ? And George ( Jason Alexander ) is as awesome as always! He

Deerfoot Hotel & Casino

The Boss-to-be , now the actual boss was here this past two days to make sure that we were doing fine and were ready for our tests! I had studied a bit but in comparison with The Tote Lover who sits on his ass all they long, in the office, I didn't have much time. The two which seem to be buds(!) had gone to purchase different tolls for our practical test. We did a couple of mock tests and then, as usual, the boss suggested to go for lunch! Who doesn't like a free lunch particularly when he is driven to a restaurant but I'm a picky eater and that's why I barely eat out. In this case I have no say!  We went to Deerfoot Hotel & Casino , a huge building with several entrances. It reminded me of the one night that I stayed at Southpoint in Las Vegas . A cute, petite waitress, who looked like Oriental  served us. The Tote Lover , despite his huge belly order a big Jambalaya dish! The boss went with a nice Stake with sides of vegetable, which actually looked very nice

Stupid McDonald's vs Nice McDonald's

Image
I don't eat at McDonald's but there was a time I would go for their breakfast, not regularly, of course. I stop even getting that and now I'm limited to Coffee and at time a Fruit & Fiber Muffin . Today was one of those days. I stopped for my breakfast, before going to the office and got the above. When I opened my bag, I was surprised and happy. I found a wooden knife in my bag, to rub the jam on the muffin, instead of the plastic knife in a plastic bag that I used to receive. While it might not be as clean and sanitized as it used to be, the positive side of that there's less garbage ending in landfills. Yes! After decades of destroying planet earth by cutting trees, injecting chemicals to ground, drying out lakes and river and many other damages, a multi-billion dollar company has decided to be environmentally-friendly! May be it is the first step! We should give them time to do more good. In the meantime it was in the news a few months ago that McDonald's

The Nonsense behind the concept of EV

Image
EV s are quickly spreading all around North America and perhaps Europe . The most popular of them is of course Tesla and the most popular of Tesla is Model 3 which can be seen on the roads almost every day. It is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful exteriors ever designed! And the motor and interior is fine as well. I just know very limited about them but there's one fact about the EV s which cannot be forgotten: They're not as environmentally clean as they claim to be. You need to charge the battery and where does the battery get the power from? From a charging station or your home outlet. And where is that power come from? In many countries from burning fossil fuels and coal!  When you by an EV you don't have to go through the hassle of oil change and some other mechanical repairs that an internal combustion engine requires but it still is a vehicle! You need many routine checks and repairs. Besides what do you do with the battery? It is said that the battery
