In light of this, your posting about drinking tea in another thread & your success in the Euro 2020 thread demonstrating, if not an actual knowledge of football, at least the ability to successfully bluff it, I hereby dub you an Honorary Brit.I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow to get lab work drawn to check my NAFLD. I'm trying to get in to a dentist to get some stuff done, but the earliest I can be seen in September 29, which is almost a month after my insurance expires. Guess I just am destined to have fucked up teeth.

I expect to see the addition of randoum "u"s to various woruds froum here on ouut.
I appreciate the offer, but my family is helping me get a gas stove. I'm taking my brother's old gas stove which he just replaced which is fine, but his girlfriend doesn't like because she doesn't trust gas for whatever reason.Post a pic of your model number sticker. Some of us here are pretty good at finding stuff
While admittedly not quite as bad, it's nice to see Belgium still take the second spot. Considering that we're one big cityscape filled to the brim with people, unlike Canada where, to be fair, there are some fairly large bits where there's few people and it might be a bit more expensive to put masts and the people-per-mast ratio might be a bit lower.
Government* mostly pays for those. Government pays for EVERYTHING the telecoms want.While admittedly not quite as bad, it's nice to see Belgium still take the second spot.

*You know what this means
My sister just had it out with them and managed to get a pretty big reduction on her bills, new phone activation fee waived and 25$ a month credit for 3 months. I want her sorcery.Colour us all pleased to see this

The number of times I have had to answer variations of this question while working tech support over the years...Why does a different machine work differently? Great question, let me answer that with this surgical 2x4.
I wish my freaking furniture would get here.
I'm tired of sitting on this $30 walmart chair or the blow-up bed. And not being able to do anything after dark because there's no light in the living room--and I refuse to buy a lamp, because I already have more lamps than I need coming on the moving truck.
It's not as grim as when I first moved up to Virginia. Back then, I spent six months on a milk crate for a chair, no table, my computer and a monitor, and a blowup bed.When we moved over to the mainland a few years back, Sarah went a month before I did and would come back on the weekends. Since everything was heading over later anyway, she didn't bring much and basically lived on a gravity lawn chair, a cardboard box table, and an air mattress as her only furniture. You reminded me of the severe lack of lighting in that place with your comment and now I've realized in addition to the lack of comfort, she likely did it mostly in the dark as well.
Though week 2 I think she did take a lamp back with her.
Yes! Our oldest has a cell number that used to belong to a real deadbeat. All of these cryptic voice mails were left. I finally called back on behalf of our minor child, and minor child was important, because of course they were collection calls for the previous owner of the number. I guess they can’t or won’t say what the call is for.I hate when people leave you a voice mail but they don't say WHY they're calling. It's 9 times out of 10 a conversation you do NOT want to have. If it's something important, they'll always say why they're calling in the voicemail. Decades of my late grandmother's passive-aggressive phone messages have taught me that.
Ugh, and I was having such a low-stress week, too.
....so why apply?I just applied for a job I don't think I'll even get an interview for.
It was for a warehouse APPRENTICE and required like 2 years of forklift, etc. In other words, we want an apprentice to learn the business. Oh, and please have all of the necessary skills already because we don't ACTUALLY want to teach you anything, we just want to be able to pay you less.
I understand that, and I certainly understand why that would make you willing to take almost anything. I don't envy you that, but I understand it can be a pretty sucky part of life.Because I have less than a month to find a job or I'll be homeless.
Couple of things. Right now I have nothing else to do BUT look for jobs. So it's not time wasted at all.Also, if it's really an entry-level apprentice job, chances are you could get something that pays similar in the hospitality sector right now, apparently they're really hurting for
