Things you wish you could say (everywhere)

Spotify, please could you fire your UI designers.
If I press play on my phone, it’s because I want to listen to music on my phone
I know I was listening on my work PC. Now I’m not. Don’t play music on my work PC when I’m listening on my phone, that makes no sense at all.

My free stray dog does not have a urinary stone that got stuck in his urethra in his penis, blocking him completely and necessitating my rushing across town at rush hour to takes x-rays to verify the problem, dope him up, pass a urinary catheter, and start him on antibiotics and prescription food. And I won’t have to uncap, express, and recap this catheter several times a day until Monday morning. And the stone will magically dissolve by the time I pull the catheter so that he cannot reblock.

Also, there is not an air leak from the outside through the foundation into my utility room in the basement causing there to be large puddles of condensation on the floor.

Let’s talk again about my burnout and compassion fatigue…

Oh, I wish your pup’s stone would magically dissolve, too! Poor guy, poor MSUAlexis.


#1852

Oh, that’s awful.
And it brings up questions that I’m not sure I want the answers to… Did the catheter push the stone back up the pipe? Does that mean the stone is bigger than the catheter’s inside diameter? Much “yikes”. Do they use the treatments to break up stones on dogs? (Ultrasound or laser, if I remember correctly)
Answers not really necessary; I just needed to get the thoughts out of my head.

Exactly!!!

Yes we were able to retropulse the stone back into the bladder but it doesn’t mean it’s bigger than the catheter. We use the pressure of pulsing water to push it back. I have pics of the x-rays if people want them.

Yes we do lithotripsy on dogs but I don’t have that kind of cash, and I get a discount! There’s a good chance it’ll dissolve, and if it doesn’t I will go into the bladder and get it. I’d rather not, since he is 13 and just had anesthesia two weeks ago. I will be leaving his catheter in over the weekend and then go from there. I hope he doesn’t reblock over the holiday; that’s my fear. But it’s all fixable problems so…

Ohhhhh dear, the poor doggy. That mde me cringe.

“That’s what she said.”
Literally.

My girlfriend just said, “You have a very high opinion of your mouth.”
We joke that she laughs at pretty much everything I say and that she is my favourite audience. She yawned this morning and I said, “I thought you were laughing, but I hadn’t even opened my mouth yet.”

It’s 45 degrees outside. Why would you think it would be okay to leave the door open for the cats to go in an out?


#1859

I don’t hear people laying down rubber on the streets near my house almost every day.

I didn’t type ‘rm -r [path to files to delete]cd [path to other files]’


#1861

Was it really necessary to have a twenty minute conversation about something that costs less than $5?


#1862

I’ve been known to obsess over even trivial decisions so… yes.

But if I’m in a better mood, it’s just not worth it.


#1863

It’s sprinkling and that does not give you all a license to drive like idiots. I bet if real rain actually comes here, you’d all freeze in your cars and not move an inch.


#1864

Balance, I decided to post it here, but really was work-related. So to clarify, when I said “discussion”, I meant “being on the receiving end of a lecture”, and when I said $5, it was under $1. The 20 minutes might have actually been closer to 30, but I don’t remember.

One of those situations where time spent talking about it was not warranted, especially considering the actual cost.

Looks like every ISP is the same no matter where you go. As soon as monopoly status is achieved …


#1866

I haven’t really had to deal with Frontier (who i think I own stock in… Not kidding, it’s like 3 shares…) but I’m guessing their one of many telco companies that exist because they provided land-line service, and got special treatment because they provided that service… But now don’t want to be in that business.

my thumb nail is not falling off. From an incident at work with a dental elevator jamming under my thumb nail. It is not green and it doesn’t hurt really badly. and it’s going to look fabulous for the formal gala I have to go to in 6 weeks

Ouch! :face_with_head_bandage:
