Minor victory thread

If you're not seeing Montana plates, you need to go to a Cars and Coffee where they have high price exotic cars. I'd bet you'd see a few.
I'm not so worried about Montana. North Dakota and Hawaii on the other hand...
 
...I see ND plates regularly. (Where do you think they go in the winter? ;) )

Hawaii plates are also frequent here, as I've said before. I actually think the Boeing helicopter plant might have something to do with that.

And still managed to walk off with a solid B.
 
The hotel has been sold (which explains my situation in another thread), and to close accounts with old ownership payday is this coming Monday instad of next Friday.

Since there's still $350 of donations still pending, and could be a week until PayPal releases it, this is a godsend. I can pick up a microwave and a bed while still in the move-out-by window.

I'll still need a rug to really tie the room together.

The wife and I are going on a trip in July to Washington state. We're taking my new car. Now, something I've always wanted was a dash cam. So, because they DIDN'T take a car payment this month even though I'd budgeted for it, I went ahead and got this:


Now all I have to do is figure out how to put it in and get it working. It should be here Saturday so I guess I know what I'm doing this weekend!

edit: I can't see this on my screen. Does the site block Amazon links?

It's a borked link for me too.

Yeah I see it on mobile as well. Weird. Guess I have to go through my whitelists again.

Nice, I got the same one. No complaints here, although the app is a bit cumbersome. Did you get the hardwire kit? Also might be worth getting the polarizing filter if you get a lot of glare from the windshield.
 
Was two hours late paying the wife's student loans, meaning I had to make a double payment to bring it "current."
Called them, they sound like they're not going to do anything so long as (technically) being a day late doesn't become a habit.
Still means a double payment as far as my bank account is concerned.
<checks bank account>
Oh hey, looks like the Federal refund is already being deposited. Well okay then.

I did get the hardwire kit. How to put it in I have yet to figure out.
 
Last month, the local hospital right down the street from my new apartment announced they were closing in 60 days. Yesterday, the state flagship hospital announced they were building a new 100-bed facility just up the hill from work. There will be about a month gap because of paperwork and other legalities, but the old hospital will now say open until the new one is ready.

And building the new one will mean contractors and such will need rooms. Lots of rooms. With the current travel industry disaster, this couldn't have come at a better time.

Win-win.
 
Looks like today ended up being the last day of the ski season, since pretty much every resort is closing down. Maybe could've put this in the whine thread, but hey, skiing is skiing!

Given all that's going on, we're busier than we've been in weeks. Occupancy is up. So we've got that going for us, which is nice.
 
My store closed to the public today! I'm guaranteed my pay! I still have to go to work each day... but I don't have to interact with any customers.
 
Got an e-mail from the District explaining how we're going to be paid. Directly from the e-mail:

"...hourly employees will specifically be paid for the hours assigned on their pay record for the duration of the closure ."

My hours of work, according to a follow-up e-mail with HR, is 38.75 hours/week.

I can live with that. :)
 
I held open the elevator doors this morning for a really hot woman, and she smiled at me, and that made my day.
