There was a guy at the check-in area of the hospital this morning, in a wheelchair, who was told he needed to put his mask over his nose. He only had it over his mouth. He got snippy with the check-in person, saying "I can't breathe with this mask on!". She told him again he needed to wear the mask properly, he then started turning his wheelchair around, told the woman with him, "Come on, we're going home. I'm sick of this damn fake virus!".
Okay, first of all, he must not have been very sick, to not bother seeing a doctor. Second, he was obviously a Covidiot tRumper.
I have NO sympathy for those people.
Anyone know of any good (reasonably priced) local (Monroe/West Monroe,LA) "engine shops"? The Firestone shop couldn't determine the cause of the truck's engine revving up while idle, so they think it might be something "internal" in the engine, and they don't remove or break down engines.
Only "good" news about the truck so far, the Firestone shop isn't charging anything, and they aren't going to charge to have the truck towed back to the house on Monday.
Starting to think the Firestone Complete Auto Care I use must have lost a few of their good mechanics or something since the last time I was there. Truck has been there since last Wednesday. They got to it initially on Saturday. I called them yesterday. They said the initial fix didn't work. STILL waiting on an update from them. The last couple of times I've used them, they were prompt, and always called to update me on what was happening.
Just called the repair shop about my truck. The initial repair they did didn't fix the issue. They aren't going to charge for the first attempt. They are currently trying to narrow down the issue again, so the initial "estimate" could change to be higher or lower. So, my day is once again on "hold", for a second time, waiting for a call.
Methinks one of my relatives email might have been hacked. Got one this morning which had apparently been forwarded to everyone on her contact list. Only thing it contained was a link to a shady looking URL I had never heard of before.
So, I did the only logical thing... I marked it as "Spam" and deleted it. From watching a lot of technology shows and reading a lot of articles over the years, I learned early on... don't click strange links and DON'T OPEN EMAIL ATTACHMENTS!
I was filling out an online form for the hospital, they had spaces for Home Phone/Work Phone/Mobile Phone. There was an asterisk on the Mobile Phone box, meaning it was "required". The other two weren't. I don't see giving them the number of the flip phone I have, since the ONLY time I even have it with me is when I leave the house, in case of emergency. If they called it, it wouldn't get answered 99% of the time, since it's usually in the other room sitting on a table connected to a charger. My MAIN phone is the HOME phone. If anyone needs to call me, THAT is the number they need to call!
Pisses me off that everyone just ASSUMES these days that a cell phone is EVERYONE'S primary phone. It's NOT!
Geesh. Why can't my luck change??? While going to my doctor appointment this morning, the ol' truck started acting up. It got hard to start, and when it did, it kept wanting to rev up, even when braking at stop lights. Got home, noticed when first cranked, a large plume of black smoke came from the tailpipe.
It's now in the shop. The shop was ultra busy, so they say they may not even be able to LOOK at it until Friday or Saturday.
Still wondering who put me on "Simmons Sporting Goods" mailing list. Apparently the culprit doesn't know me very well. I've NEVER been into hunting or fishing, so every time one of those catalogs appears in my mailbox, it goes straight into the trash.
The left arm definitely isn't getting better. It's to the point now, if I lift it above a certain level, I lose strength in it and feel like I'm going to drop whatever I'm holding. Have a return appointment with the doctor on Wednesday, but not sure if he'll have any more info, since I wasn't able to get the MRI he scheduled for me.
Had a strange dream last night. I wasn't in it. It was like watching a movie. Some new sequel to "Back to the Future". It took into account Michael J. Fox's health issues, he was seated. He sent Lea Thompson in time instead of himself. Different "Doc", played by Ricky Champ.
Time machine wasn't a DeLorean, it was more of a "Doctor Who" type thingy (not a police box though). Unfortunately, I had to wake up to go to the bathroom before the dream was over.
I never have weird dreams on the nights I forget to take the night time blood pressure meds I was prescribed. Only when I take them.
