Man... there's one dude that was an acquaintance about 15 years ago that randomly saw me in a bar 2 years back... within a week I was watching his untrained 110lb pit bull for 10 days while he was on vacation... it only went down hill from there... hes got 7 or 8 baby mamas, although he's been at arms length for a while so he could have easily upped that number... lol

Sounds like a grade A cock-smooch. I hate feeling swindled in the name of friendship. I am sick and tired of “contract” relationships.

I had a really bad habit of doing this at work, especially for friends I worked with (in that particular industry it is not unusual for people to raise through the ranks together so work friends sorta become career partners). I don't have kids or a wife and they always used that against me. Like oh hey I need (favor) so I can be with my kid for (x) or can't afford babysitter so I need (favor), or it's my wife's (special occasion) so I need (favor). I always did it not realizing that I was preventing myself from developing a life where I could have those things. I lost more than one relationship because of work all while going out of my way to help others have that life and relationship.
The worst part is that when you finally say no and explain why this has to stop, you become the asshole. I really wish I had learned this sooner.
Currently, there is not a single person within 2 states of me that I that I would call a close friend and I'm in no hurry to change that.

You had us all worried!

@Gypsy - I did the same thing the first 7ish years working in food service... id cover extra shifts multiple times a week, loaning out money for car repairs and shit so people could cover for me... shit, half the time I was selling weed out the back door just to keep my ass covered! Lol... I like being kinda anonymous where I work and being a high level welder, I dont have many people that just come up and talk to me... unless they need something fixed of course... lol

Edit:
I confess I'm excited as hell to finally get a chance to weld on some Titanium! I pissed off most of my coworkers cuz I opted for the hardest test... lol!  do it right or dont do it at all!

Yeah but if anybody thinks you’re an asshole for that then they don’t deserve any more of your help anyhow. It is a bitch when it’s somebody you’re stuck with like coworkers.

I made it to like my mid 20s before I started chopping off fools that I’d known for a while but the good times hanging out weren’t worth the bullshit they always brought anymore.


I’ve taken a ton of shit from guys who pride themselves on being hard because I’ll catch people trying to fuck me and not say anything. I try explaining that I’m not a bitch, I just don’t care. Now I know who this guy really is. He thinks he’s slick pulling one over on me but just cuz I don’t say anything doesn’t mean I don’t know. I’m not here to try and force people into being good, I’m here to see what you’re really about. If I call the bullshit out all it’s gonna do is make him hide it better.

I’ve left quite a few motherfuckers in the lurch when they thought I’d bail them out. I’ll tolerate the nonsense but once I know that’s who you are the second I don’t need you anymore I’m gone.

There’s a great quote I don’t fully remember but it’s something along the lines of

“My kindness is not weakness, and my silence is not acceptance or agreement”.

Today when inoculating i pushed an agar wedge with the side of the lid and into the jar

Thats what I call living on the edge:laugh:

Lets hope this jar doesnt contaminate. I refuse to throw it away without knowing if it is contaminated.

God I hate making stupid mistakes like this....

I confess I did similar when I, without even thinking, I wiped a dribble of agar from the rim of the media bottle with my finger. By the time I realized what I was doing it was done. Still poured the rest of the bottle into plates but hated myself the entire time.

The outside or inside of the lid?? That’s definitely rolling the myco dice.

I confess after a long day of shopping to make cocktails I failed to purchase vermin control. I first spotted a mouse 5 days ago or so and 2 days now went to the store. Fucker nubbled like 4 bags I messed up, but figured would slowly finish as they were just too dry. I put some sugar with baking powder out hut I guess maybe not enough of the baking powder. :shrug:

I confess I really empathize with a lot of these sentiments about "friends".  I spent years being everyone's rock until I finally gained a functional understanding of the old saying "he who has quenched his thirst immediately turns his back on the well,  no longer needing it."

I also confess I had a run-in with PC drought recently.  First time it's happened with one of my Presto units.  Regular 90min cycle with 3 qts water and when I took the lid off there was maybe 1/3 cup of water in the depression in the bottom. :uhoh:

So much relatable stuff in this thread.  Sometimes (I must confess) I read through it to get that feeling of relatability.  :thatsinteresting:

I confess that I ran my PC dry on my first batch of oats, so it only went 70 of the planned 90 minutes. It must have worked out, since I'll be harvesting the fruits from one of those jars in the next few hours.

I confess I'm pretty fucked up on Edibles and vodka tonics. If I confessed anything more legitimate I'd be looking at it 6 hours from now and telling myself put your phone in a drawer when you're up late.

Ya know that's exactly what I was thinking. Last time I went to
grain, after all the tracking, logs, spread sheets, I forgot to
note which jar went to which shoebox! Booom! Crap shoot!

Last lagm I did a bunch of transfers without wrapping the plates and was stacking them on the SAB as I went. I was so stoked on getting all the cultures going and then I stood up and bumped the box and they all flew on the floor and my dogs gobbled them up. :laugh2:
