Yet, they are paying for 4 guys to go to Vegas for some stupid convention that is known to everyone that when you go, all you do is drink, gamble and "have fun" so there are stories to share afterward.

Yup ! Priorities, man, PRIORITIES !

Plus our Fire Co. will be happy with the newest donation of 15+ extinguishers for training and whatnot.

Well, now that everyone has a lawyer handy these days, companies are focusing more on safety so that when there is an accident they can say everyone is "trained"....

I think it's a good thing, our company is lucky to have 3 fireman working here full-time with 2 of us being CPR/AED trained as well as EMT-B trained...

I just have so much to do today and I think I'm going to run out of time - plus working late isn't an option.... b/c let's face it, no one wants to work late on a Friday

I have a feeling this weekend is going to fly by

I'll be in class all weekend so it won't "feel" like a weekend to me... oh well.
