Are you still looking for a different job entirely?
Yes. This was just to get away from some of the stress while I'm still there.
I'm tired of my full-timer havin to have a dick swingin contest everytime anything needs to be done. So, I let him win.
It just so happens to fuck his reputation up even more, and set the committee, and the retention committee back in the process. I don't want to hinder them, but I don't have a way of passing my abilities off to another person. I had my hands in the core goings on of both committees, Health and Safety at large, maintenance, and our yearly audits. I'm one of only two people that know how to setup/run 90% of the activities of both committees, and I made up roughly 60% of thee safety committees hours in our wing. We barely scraped by with our minimum required each month. I also dealt directly with supes, admins, and other committees in other wings/buildings to negotiate trades, and equipment acquisitions.

Yep, my wife has these problems too. Since she's not mixed black and white 50% she gets all of the questions about "What ethnicity?!?" 75% Filipino and 25% Black, but since her mom looks more Mestizo than Asian, people just walk up and start speaking Spanish like she's Caribbean.

On Sunday someone even handed her a Spanish Language Chick Tract... :headbang:
Three of my four kids are biracial (adopted), one black and latinx, two black and white. Our bio kid is a pale redhead. Wife and I are both obvious anglo, but bilingual. When we all went out together, we got weird looks. I had to get fairly harsh with the rural Iowa school district we live in (not where I taught) before the admins got that racial slurs arent "just part of growing up".

Well I'm going to wish you luck on the Job search and I hope you find something less stressful!

If you didn't throw punches then you are far more patient than I would have been in that situation.

Yeah, well.... After the war, plus seven summers doing human rights work in Central America, plus teaching high school for thirty some years...my control of apprpriate responses is pretty tight. I just invited them to consider how they were going to look on NBC Nightly News when the crews showed up to film the state civil rights commision hearings and the ACLU court cases. Also how their budget would look after the settlements.

Morning my jeep peeps. tho I'm not even going to attempt to catch up, I'm going to try to make an effort to visit ya'll at least once a week to say hi and check on everyone. give Mike (@obwahn) a break from texting. ;)

here is an updated pic of Rummy, taken just after her "tubby" She now sits on 35's and my son talked me into 20" wheels. Changed her tire size in the computer but she she is doggy but she seemed that way before i upgraded tires/wheels. She now wears a soft top for the warmer weather and had her exhaust "upgraded" to the Rough Country exhaust to give her a little growl. I'm not a rock crawler just a dirt road driver so not worried about crushing it. But i do now have a winch to help pull me out if i get in over my head on the dirt. :like:

Hope everyone has a blessed day. i'll check back later. :jk::flag:
