We went long today but apparently some of you prefer that so we're all good. Mail, a patpeeve, new music - we did it all. Let's go!
Pat plays new music by Familiar Things (5:47), rambles on texting long stories (11:40), and rants on excuses at work (21:42). Then he opens the mailbag for your thoughts on stubborn bosses, odd job interviews, and hot dogs.
Many thanks to our friends for the new tune! Get Daises here and get tickets to their show at Kung Fu Necktie on October 21 here!
QUESTION: How do you text long stories?
I was surprised that most of you were both in favor of long messages (I hate reading walls of text) and knew to write for your audience. Good job, everyone! Also, check out ChroniCards here - the game with a fun Pot twist!
"I'm too old for this" - a work problem
I can't believe people still use this excuse in 2023. Being 60 is not a reason you don't know how to use a computer on a basic level. You're being willfully ignorant and it is affecting your (and my) job. Learn how to attach files or move along, old timer!
It was nice to see real people use the contact form instead of spammers for a change. To recap: Everyone's boss ignores them. Potential bosses are still trying to skirt the law(?). And hot dogs are not sandwiches. Thanks, everyone!
And that, as we say, is that! Thank you very much for doing the thing. Next week we should have some new music and new things to yell about so come on back for that. Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
