Just got a second follow up email plea at work for everyone to please review a document as they have had very little feedback so far. Being the nice guy I am, and a little burnt out as I start checklist #2 of 8 consisting of 400 line items, I jump in to the reviewing tool to see what it is. Not that onerous of a title but quite high level. 
 

Then I noticed that it is 496 pages long. 
 

I found the reason you aren’t getting much feedback.

FEEDBACK: Too long, didn't read.

 

or, for those of you up on the latest abbreviations:TLDR

They're an engineer, if they offered a tldr version it would still be 100 pages long..

We had a fun night at the FLGS. Loud & allot of people tonight, but it felt like we were at a game store. We finished off a long Adventure League game tonight as well. I love Chris Valentine's work but his AL adventures are allot to digest in 4 hours, so I've taken to breaking them up into 2 sessions, my players don't mind. We also had to play with a shorter time frame, as tonight was the store's monthly employee meeting.

 

Also, found out my store is participating in FREERPG Day this year (Saturday the 25th). I wasn't sure after the weak turnout for it last year, but this year marks the return to the traditional day (at least for the US) of it. I'll be running a couple adventures for the store (Cyberpunk Red Quickstart "Step into the Dark Future" & Loke Battlemap "Curse of the Dread Marsh Crew" adventure. I was able to pick a free item for running, so I went with the Harengon paint kit from Wizkids. I will also be able to pick something up this Saturday as well. I'll most likely pick up the Root RPG free adventure. Pretty cool, I think there will at least be 6 GM/DMs this time around, so a variety of stuff will be on display for anybody that comes up to the store that day. Looking forward to it.

You can add baby wipes to the list.

Never know when something sticky/icky will need to be wiped off of whatever, hands included.

Besides, sometimes a moist towel to the face/neck just helps pull things into better focus.

Yah, got some of those too, because it seemed like a good idea.

Y'know. Like you do. 

 

One side effect of all this, changing Andi's bandages at home has left me with a LOT of stuff you don't usually see in home first aid kits... I suspect I'll have leftovers enough to give some future EMT a Moment. 

 

Annnd  the probably-by-now expected Medical Hell spoiler...

Spoiler

We broke the Days Since Urgent Care Visit streak today; we went in for the wound care nurse to check the foot, and (when they stopped laughing at the bandages under the wrap I had to fix because it FELL APART, despite being taped to the knee. Mine, despite only being taped in one place, held much better), she slapped a regular bandage on it and sent us down to urgent care for antibiotics. Apparently, having a culture, bloodwork with Suspicious Markers and multiple people saying, hm, yes, that's infected aren't sufficient, and.. I guess she couldn't get her hands on a doctor upstairs.

No, we did not get sent home with a prescription yesterday (which surprised me). 

So, we're going back tomorrow afternoon for another shot of intravenous antibiotics and I know an orthopedic surgeon who's gonna get a piece of my mind next we see her.

*grumblegrumble*

Say Hello to Trumpet! (on the right) ^ (the Bloodhound).

 

Trumpet won Best in Show a couple of hours ago at the Westminster Dog Show. 
 

There is no evidence that Trumpet is an Agent of W.O.O.F

I know, right?

 

Actually, I'm not sure how purple that is for me. I called the store not the hotline. She said she'd email the installer and get back to me within a couple of days. Hoping all of that is by email because I want a paper trail at this point.

 

Record the conversation if it's only by phone.

 

@TGP Congrats to Trumpet.

Looks like a very wise dog!

You need to check state law for the legality of recording a phone conversation without disclosing that a recording is being made.

However, there is no law against making notes as you are on the phone, transcribing those notes and sending a copy to the person you were on the phone with so you both agree on what was said.

Definitely

We started buying baby wipes by the carton when we had babies, but we got so used to having them around we keep getting them...
