[Rant] Minor Rant III: For a Few Hollers More

Dave

Staff member
Got a call from my sister. Apparently my mom is no longer eating or drinking. They are checking her out to see whether it's an illness or if she's just shutting down.

This is only a minor rant because it's going to be a blessing when she finally goes. It'll be hard on my sister but it'll take so much weight off of her shoulders.

And just got a call from my sister.

"The home just called. Mom ate dinner and is playing hangman with some of the other residents."

WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!? One minute they are talking like she's on death's door and the next she's playing puzzle games with others. The biggest problem is we can't visit her right now. Everything is on lockdown. So all the info we're getting is second-hand and it apparently changes when the shift changes.

So thanks for the hugs and all, but it looks like I don't need them other than to get me through frustration.

Just be careful. Oftentimes they have a sudden "better period" before they have their final crash. That's what happened to my aunt.
 
A former member of my department emailed me to ask about the possibility of returning to the company. If it were up to me, I'd say yes, but my supervisor, HR, and the company CEO all said no, for various reasons. So now I have to draft a professional-sounding email to this person, basically saying, "Yes, but no."
 
I'm all set up at home in the basement away from everyone else, and that's great because I've been cranky as fuck these last couple of days and don't want to put that on the kids.
 
Work set us up to call into a meeting this morning.
Work didn't set up the conference with the proper number of participants.
I spent the entire meeting time in a separate "room" with 5 other people, just chatting about life in isolation and how we couldn't get into the "main" meeting.

I won the lottery so to speak this week and last and was able to get in to our large staff meeting. Most of the team can’t, so I’m taking notes.

Good call. Mom has taken a turn for the worst. She's now on hospice and will go any time. Whether I get to see her or not is up in the air. If not, she'll be cremated within hours and I won't ever see her again.
 
A truly minor rant: I am soooo so so tired of seeing this Joe Exotic guy and all his memes everywhere I go.
@PatrThom Apparently he's some meth-headed criminal lion rancher dude who hates Carole Baskin of Big Cat Rescue. Netflix did some kind of series on him, and the last few days I'm seeing a shit ton of memes about him on Reddit and Facebook.

Oh, the Tiger King guy. I see it everywhere, but had no clue what it was about.
