    So update kind of, had to break down and buy a can of chew last night on lunch break. We have these big grinders at work that grind up field tile that comes off line bad and gets reused. Well this one idiot decided to clog it up about 3 times withing about 2 hours so had to go mess with that and was about to knock the dude upside the head. I mean it happens to everyone but most ppl learn after the first time cause it sucks digging out.

    But only ended up putting one dip in and haven't since. So overall not too bad goin from a can or little more a day to one dip in 4 days.

    Better than I could've done cold like that. There are bad and good days, just stick with it. Cravings are temporary, but idiots last forever unfortunately.

    There is some decent 100%mint chew out there. Tastes a lot like Kodiak. Flavor doesn't last near as long but it'll get you over a crave.

    Nobody is perfect and tobacco is a jerk. Gum and Lifesavers are my go to craving fixes. Keep on keeping on.

    Knowing more about how a company works than the employees who work there... Especially when they inconvenience you...

    So in my years of working with banks... I've become painfully aware of a concept of domiciling accounts (the bank has a branch responsible for accounts)... Most decent banks use all the cool Jetsons technology like geocoding, behavioral/transactional modeling, segmentation, opportunity models, blah blah...to make it easy for customers.

    I open a new account online with a bank... Get a call from the manager at a branch I opened an account at like 20 years ago... Not close to my home, I never transact there, like 10 miles away... I literally would need to pass 2 or 3 other branches of this bank to get there..."can you come in to sign some papers?"

    Maybe I should sell them some cool project, instead...

    Fairly certain that what I did would be considered a hate crime. Even though I did not know the ethnicity of the driver of the vehicle that was going 60 mph in the left lane on I 94 between Monticello and St Cloud when I did pass on the right I blasted my horn so my middle finger would be seen and noted. I was correct in my assumption but in my defense I would give a Norwegian the finger if he was driving 60 mph in the left lane.

    Scheduling meetings with execs are worse than herding cats. 'that time works for me'... (28 minutes later) 'can we reschedule? '

    I feel like taking the rest of the day off... Finding a roosting tree tonight and shooting a turkey in the face tomorrow. I guess I better find the permethrin first....

    This is when mustaches aid as camouflage.

    We Norskies can take that type of abuse in stride. I don’t think it would be due to hogging the left lane though. More likely for a “Hold my beer and watch this!” type of moment.

    The interior drivers side door handle just broke in my truck. Had to come out the passenger side. Hahaha. Maybe at 201k miles it's just time to get another truck. I'm a cheapskate!

    Easy fix! Just put window down and reach outside and use exterior handle. Haha.

    Sometimes not a hard fix, hardest part is just getting the interior panel off with out braking all the clips.
