Gross! Dere's a doo doo in da bowl and NO TOILET PAPAH! Somebody in your office get some mean "oko juice" action in his BBD's!

Aftah "confronting" my co-worker, dis is how it went down:

BL: Eh, you wen take a crap or wat?
BL: No lie. I get proof. Try look. (showed da pic from previous blog)
CO-WORKER What the he!!? Is that our bathroom?
BL: Yup. I went in right aftah you and dis is wat I had to walk in to.
CO-WORKER Had toilet paper?
BL: Rogah.
CO-WORKER Then what did he wipe with?

Aftah a short perplexed glance towards him thinking he was trying to deflect, da light bulb went off in my coconut shell cause we both deduced da same thing.

Our toilets are auto-flush and fairly strong so it'll clear most debris in one flush. For those pieces dat don't make it, they get pretty mashed up from da force of da flush and you can literally tell it nevah make da original plumbing pilgrimage. Therefore, any leftovahs should absolutely, positively nevah be left intact and looking so.... solid.

With dat being said, even if da sensor nevah work, how come no mo' toilet paper in da toilet? He nevah wipe aftah pau? Not even a square? And last time I checked, we no mo' one bidet.

So there it is my dear Watson, as elementary as it is.... das how skid row came to be.

Have a grrrrreat Feel Good Friday!

And no fo'get fo' wipe eh? :razz:

Stumped Me - Any Sherlocks In Da House?

January 7th, 2015

A few weeks ago, I was ragging on a co-worker who had just used da bathroom ahead of me. *** sorry, guess I'm stuck on a toilet theme dis week *** :roll: :oops:

While I know he nevah do it (logically deduced dat da time he was in there was "too short"), I had to show him da "proof" I had.

DISCLAIMER: For those who are touchy, sensitive, squeamish, no can handle graphic/real pictures or like to complain about how you're offended by every little thing...... NO LOOK 'DEN!!!

Ok, now dat we got dat out of da way.

Hea it is..............

Ok, maybe I not going show 'em on WWD! cause I not surah if can and no like get in trouble but if you CLICK HEA, YOU CAN. :grin:

Now if YOU can tell me Wassup Wit Dat! about da picture, you more sharp than me cause my co-worker was pretty quick to observe something very peculiar about it dat made me say WWD!....... and :shock:

You know I observe a lot of shtuff (literally and figuratively) and dis is one dat makes you go, "hmmmmm".

Da "answer" to follow latah.

Starting Off With A Bang

January 5th, 2015

You could say dat I live my life by playing da odds and rolling da dice in which case there are times wen even da best odds fail you. Plans - or actions taken - are made and you carry them out hoping for da best with optimism or pessimism depending on your "odds".

New Year's only happens once a year - obviously - and having an extended weekend was awesome until... I have two words for you:

Bad poke.... with a vengeance. Ok, so das five but who's counting?

Thank goodness it wasn't actually on da eve or da day itself but day old poke isn't all dat strange to me or to oddahs (no lie now). Granted, I wouldn't touch it if was slimy, "fishy" smelling or losing its color (all signs of bad fish) so wen I saw a leftovah container in da fridge, of course I was going to have at it.

Being a poke and sashimi lover, it's hard to resist - or even fathom - letting it go to waste and I've done it a million times before so it wasn't a problem having it with dinner Friday night. I guess I should have known dat da odds were dwindling on me cause once I woke up Saturday morning, I felt "weird". It really didn't hit me till late afternoon so aftah visiting da "office" a couple of times, I decided to rest up having to attend a special dinner for a friend celebrating a milestone.

Da dinner dat night costed me a heavy penny and with dat mind, I couldn't let ono food pass me by.... boy was dat a mistake. Once I got home *** if you no like details, you can stop reading now *** I was "depositing" every couple of hours at then at 3am wat nevah was deposited was "refunded" in full and then some.

Wassup Wit Dat!

I'm still going to da office every couple of hours while trying to replenish with Powerade and Canada Dry and aftah losing at least 10lbs of water weight (who knew a body has DAT much extra watah?!?) - it has been a rough few days and sadly still not ovah.

Da Wife had to convince me to stay home from work as I was contemplating da logistics of our work bathroom. There's at least a dozen and a half guys on our floor between three offices and only two stalls. Hmmm, odds not so good there.

Then there are da guys in my office dat forget to return da bathroom key so any delay could be disastrous for me especially at da frequency I have to "attend meetings". Hmmm, odds are totally shot.

Have you evah chanced eating something passed da expiration? Evah had "bad fish"? Do you have a cast iron stomach? Got any remedies?

Damn those odds.... Happy Frickin' New Year. :lol:

10, 9, 8, 7.............

December 31st, 2014

It happens every year at dis time and every year we say da same thing, "crap, dat was fast" - or something to dat effect.

Rarely does one exclaim dat da year was "too long" unless you were excitedly waiting for something or someone towards da end of da year.

You know wat's da most amazing thing about New Years Eve? It's a day dat EVERYONE is involved with. There's no discrimination, no color, no race, no religion, no favoritism, no nepotism, no -ism's watsoevah. Traditions - cultural and adopted - are followed through amongst ohana and friends and passed on to generations to come.

It doesn't mattah wea you live (at least I think cause I'm not a world traveler during New Year's) but wen dat clock hits 12:00:00am, your guard comes down and a tidal wave of serenity and calm passes through you and whoevah/weaevah you are, everyone gets a hug, kiss and a Happy New Year.

Then 12:07am comes and as dat zen-like feeling you had seven minutes ago fades and passes, real life gravity begins to pull you down as for some, slams some sense back into you. Thoughts, memories, could of's, would of's, should of's shoot across your mind while da fireworks dwindle from their finale and you wondah wat da heck did you do last year which only ended seven minutes ago?!

Wassup Wit Dat!

If da world, in dat one instant could live those few minutes of da New Year Eve/Day for da majority of da year, we all would be in a much happier and pleasant world to live in.

So I challenge you in dis fast approaching countdown to continue dat "feeling" for as long as you can and share da "universal Aloha" dat truly should last more than a few minutes.

Or at least until 12:15am. :razz:

SHOUT OUT: Ok, absolute last time (well, it is da end of da year) for those who wanted/signed up for kim chee a few blogs ago at "For Those Who Still Stay" to contact me - or post - to arrange a pick up for dis weekend. Remembah, you snooze, you lose as it only happens one time a year.

Wishing all da WWD! Hui a great new year, pah-tay hard and keep each oddah safe. See you on da flip side.

Business Morale

December 29th, 2014

For many of us, we've been employed for probably at least a decade or more and during dat time, chances are, have experienced several employers and their practices. From those experiences you come across employers who are/can be more "generous" in their ways and those you just wonder how da heck would one continue to work there.

But hoping and wanting are two different things as some just need da work so they stick with da employer to survive especially in Hawai'i nei.

Then of course factoring in da nature of da business really determines wat can and cannot be done so sometimes you're just crap out of luck. Wen I used to work in Waikiki - whether it was at a hotel or ABC stores - holidays only meant a time and a half instead of an actual day off since there are zero "holidays" in da hospitality industry. Wen I used to work at a non-profit social welfare agency, all state, city AND federal holidays were observed which was frickin' awesome...... then I went back into da for-profit side and realized dat you were lucky to have a half dozen or so compared to da 14 + two extra days (birthday and shopping, yeah, a shopping day during da holidays).

It all depends wea you work and wat kine of boss/company you have so I was EXTREMELY appreciative wen my current employer was very generous enough to give us half day on da eve, then da holiday AND da da AFTAH da holiday off - for both Christmas AND New Years! CHEEEEEEE-HU!

But then again, I haven't had a raise going on three years (previous and current employer) so it was a very welcoming "gift" not only for me but to everyone aboard. It was a morale boost especially during da holiday season and while it wasn't da norm, it was something my employer could do (handle) aftah heavy consideration. If there's one thing employees appreciate da most is being appreciated and besides of course any type of raise, a paid day off.

While there are morale killahs too, there are some employees who aren't so appreciative as well. Whether they've been burned before, they think da company "owes" them and treat every gesture with a grunt and Scrooge like attitude. We've all been around "those" type of people wea we just may nod politely in agreement but you know inside we saying......

Wassup Wit Dat!

Wen I used to work as a shift manager at Pizza Hut, during my shift (hypothetically speaking) I'd make surah da people who closed da store all was able to make and take something home. It wasn't much but da "gesture" made a long night bearable as I knew their pay wasn't good and leaving close to midnight wasn't exactly an ideal work situation. Wen making da work schedule, I'd make surah to give those who buss okole their requests to keep them "happy". There were oddah little things to do - whether it was by da book or not (hypothetically of course) - dat I could do/control to make surah dat their work was valued and appreciated.

Has your employer evah done something special for you, your department or company-wide? Do you "expect" certain things or compare a previous employer to your current one? Do you think your current employer can "handle" certain gestures? How is da morale wea you work at - is it generally cool or is it da type wea people kinda grumpy? Just curious - if you one supahvisor - have you done anything to boost morale for da people dat work for "you"?

SHOUT OUT: For those who signed up to get kim chee, shoot me an email or bettah yet just post a reply to let me know whether you want to pick up on da eve (Wednesday, December 31) or either Saturday or Sunday. Preferably in da Pearl City area but could be town area if our schedules line up. I just need to know which day so I can prep and we can connect via email for the specific meet times.
