You’re on your own for a while

Wednesday, Nov 17, 2021 - Posted by Rich Miller

* OK, kids, I have been struggling with multiple issues all morning and I am just done for a while. My keyboard isn’t working right, my computer is struggling, my Internet is out, I have a car repair issue that I need to attend to ASAP, and I have an HVAC service person on his way.

That’s the news and I am outta here. Be nice to each other.

    Good luck Rich sounds like the start of a long day


  3. - RNUG - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 11:46 am:

    I hate days like that.

    Just deal with it one item at a time. Good luck.

    It’s probably Madigan’s fault,

    Our Auditor General recommends Happy’s Service in Spring Valley for your automotive repair needs.

    Petting Oscar will likely help.

    Dan Rutherford isn’t going to let Bruce Rauner destroy him, but a day like you have going might have done it.

    I ran out of gas. I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car.

    Good luck, but no promises on that whole “be nice to each other” thing.

    ooh, sorry about the day. and it’s not even Mercury in retrograde.


  10. - What's in a name? - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 12:13 pm:

    Are you a Mac guy? My new Powerbook is due to arrive on Black Friday. Its gotten great reviews and for the first time in years I am actually looking forward to the upgrade.


  11. - Skeptic - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 12:17 pm:

    “My keyboard isn’t working right, my computer is struggling…” So..nothing that can’t be fixed with a big old hammer.


  12. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 12:19 pm:

    Rich is out. Party at Rich’s house. Exclamation points welcome.


  13. - lake county democrat - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 12:23 pm:

    Thoughts and prayers for your car issue (the rest are replace/repairable, but car shopping sounds scary these days…)


  14. - TinyDancer(FKASue) - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 12:25 pm:

    Technology problems are not fun.
    I can attest to that.
    Good luck.

    Holy malfunctions, Batman (banned punctuation). What a mess! We’ll hold the fort while you get the stuff fixed.


  16. - AD - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 12:50 pm:

    Reminds me of the old Rodney Dangerfield joke. I woke up this morning and put my pants on and the button pops off, I then grab my briefcase and the handle falls off…. Honestly, I’m scared to go to the bathroom at this point.


  17. - Lurker - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 1:03 pm:

    How did you type [banned punctuation] in one sentence and then use it in the next? 😵‍💫


  18. - Blue Dog - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 1:05 pm:

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..


  19. - Blue Dog - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 1:05 pm:

    Deer season.


  20. - JS Mill - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 2:58 pm:

    Does this mean we can use banned words and punctuation this afternoon? Asking for a friend..of course.


  21. - Frumpy White Guy - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 3:04 pm:

    Very disappointed with Rep. Moylan for his sponsorship of legislation that runs contrary to our movement to defund the police. Our Social Justice freedom warriors will remember next November.

    TO Lurker - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 1:03 pm:

    a) I panicked.
    b) I was intoxilated unda da affluence of inkohol.
    c) Sometimes your foot slips of the clutch, and the gears grind for a sec.

    Take the skirt off Rich, 12.8M folks in this state has it equally as bad or worse—maybe the cannabis can give you a grant—-but that would require you to become a sell out—don’t do it-take a break Rich—-indictments to follow…………


  24. - Roads Scholar - Wednesday, Nov 17, 21 @ 9:15 pm:

    One of them days

    Low Level–The article doesn’t mention it but any word if Blago’s restaurant apology tour will include any Elvis songs? Or if he will come dressed up like the Vegas Elvis?
