    I hate crummy days like that, maybe all your bad luck happened at once and you'll have a streak of good luck.

    So Blart... Sounds like you had a rough day...

    I keed! I keed! Just giving you a hard time...

    Chris I have days like that too, the only difference is that I am not responsible for the type of stuff you are... My job is an entirely different ball of fish...

    Yep, when it rains it pours. Keep your chin up. At least you didn't violate rule #1.

    Cool

    Hell son your just starting out on a long journey down a very long , winding, bumpy road.

    Believe me there will be days that you will look back on this one as just another speed bump on the highway of life.

    What dosen't kill ya will make ya stronger.

    Stay Safe.

    P.S.

    Yup, that certainly qualifies as a bad day alright. Although it kinda sounds more like Goober than Barney.

    Get some rest cause you get to do it all over again tomorrow.

    thin crust loaded works, I have a long bib that I wear in the car when I eat and can't lean over the table. Uniform stayed clean. It started my good luck streak I think

    Sorry to hear about your day. With any luck you had all of your bad incidents for several months combined into a single day, so maybe you won't have any bad luck problems for a while. I've had similar days in the past, and am always glad when they are over.

    Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying. Keep your chin up. What are the odds that tomorrow won't be better?

    Well, it could be lots worse.
    You could be in a different uniform watching out for some other soldiers SIX in Afghanistan.

    I think Chris has had more NDs than Barney ever did.
