Murph

My morning...

17 posts in this topic

1) Wake up to no hot water

 

2) Go to basement and find hot water heater spewing from every pipe and seam. It is shot

 

3) Turn off water to heater & at switchboard. Too early to call a plumber.

 

4) Inform wife of situation when she walks in from her morning run.

 

5) Call plumber, he can come later today but unlikely to completely get us up and running again until tomorrow. He is good guy and a friend so we decide to wait.

 

6) The icing on the cake to my morning: To make light of the situation I tell my wife to put on her scrubs & give me a sponge bath. After a few seconds of a blank stare she walks off telling me that it is good there is no hot water because I need a cold shower. Oh and she also informs me that our bank account is low right now because she just bought her and each of the girls several new swimsuits from one those catalogs she gets in the mail everyday so I will have to pay for the repairs out of my office account.

 

7) FML

D*mn, sorry to hear Murph. It's never to early for a stiff drink to take the edge off!

In all seriousness Murph, I feel your pain. This morning I walked outside and took two steps out the back door and saw this debacle to start my day. A freaking leaf in the pool !!!!!!!  Spent most of the morning searching the web for someone to come fix the problem for me. I know, I know...it's terrible. Trying not to let it ruin my day but it's not easy. Thoughts and prayers appreciated.

I had a low tire pressure tire indicator come on during my commute this morning so I stopped to put air in the tire.  There was one I had plugged in the past, and I figured it was the culprit.

I deposited my 4 quarters in the air machine and the sonofabitch didn't come on. I had to go inside and get a crispy dollar bill refund.

The tire had like 30 lbs, so I said I'd just continue on to work and use our compressor there.

Sure enough, it was the same tire and the plug had failed. Had to spend like 10 minutes of my valuable time replugging it in our air conditioned loading dock. I almost even broke a sweat and I didn't even have to take the tire off to plug it.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
