rant coming. i'm upset. hell i'm far past upset. i'm fucking tired of people supporting ex-offenders (which again, i did not commit the crime but did the time...one word.."Texas") trying to make a better life yet do it in someone else's back yard? i'm tired of the motherfuckers at work bitching and complaining about how so and so isn't doing this or is doing that. i'm tired of all this shit bringing me down. yes i'm trying to turn it around only to take 1 step forward and getting set 5 back. my life sucks right now and yes i am partially to blame but there are other scenarios that play into this. like lies. oooohhhh lies. i fucking can't stand liars. more than that i hate being called a liar. why the hell would i lie? just one more damn thing to remember what you lied about. tell the truth. that way you don't have to remember what you lied about to retell the lie. ffs. i'm depressed, fucked off and mad. brilliant combination eh? i'm trying and have been for quite sometime to get back into engineering or get back into charter aviation but the "economy" doesn't allow this. or is it my "criminal background?" zip and brianr, you guys nailed it 5 years ago. wish i'd of listened. i'm tired guys. real tired.

Sounds pretty grim, plthijinx. Hope you find a route through it soon.

The 'lies' sound particularly troubling. Hate being called a liar. I don;t know who it is you're referring to, but I hope that gets sorted out soon too.

Are you qualified to teach pilots? Maybe there's a backdoor into the industry again through training schools?

My son is playing at the Joe Louis Arena tonight (home of the Redwings) then we are staying to watch the wings. It's also swim team banquet/awards night. My daughter made the really tough (and gallant) decision to go to the banquet and pick up the boys' awards with her own. SNOW DAY = banquet cancelled, chances of getting her a ticket at the discount price with our group - next to zero, so most likely I'll have to leave her behind.

SO not important, comparatively, but:

Just found out my club is closing it's doors for good, on Sunday.

It's almost the only place I ever go to have a beer! Those are my people!

I'll sure miss some of the regulars.

Well, the Cellar is like a club. Except without the butlers and overstuffed furniture.

i'm trying guys. thanks griff, sky, kero n zip. i need all the help and support i can get. dana yeah i can teach officially for ground skool but am not certified to teach in the air. would love too. one day i will get my cfi (certified flight instructor) one day. not tomorrow but someday. i do love to teach. tried to get it about 9 years ago but that's another story. on a more positive note i changed out my transmission in the truck and it works perfectly!! i SO needed that uplift. pain in the ass to change it but wow, i just can't believe that it works!! job well done. shit i'm not sure which one was harder: getting the new tranny up there to mate the bolt holes? or putting back on the exhaust. either way it's done. now i have to attack the cam position sensor. best point is i smiled today.

That is the kind of club where I used to WORK, not the kind of club I belong to.

Keep smiling plt. It does help. It sounds trite, but when things are bad I think about how, in the end, none of it really matters. Grab happiness where you can find it and KNOW that better days will come.

I'm very impressed with you fixing your transmission.

My brother, who was a rocket scientist at the time, tried to fix the transmission on his beat up old car. Ended up having to have it towed to the junkyard after he took it apart. Just couldn't get it to work. You obviously have talent.
