Things you know are stupid but do anyway

As the title says. I made a lightweight political comment on Twitter (the dumb part) that favored a Republican on an issue. Come to find out I'm a Republican (not), a Trumpkin (definitely not), and a member of QAnon (JFC). Back to being read-only before I forget and do it again.

I chewed tobacco for decades.  I did stop though.

I smoke 2 cigarettes at night.  It’s a carryover from my drinking days which ended (thankfully) many years ago).  It’s a stupid thing to do, but it’s my vice that I like to keep.

I’ve been using my seatbelt less and less.

Waking up each morning and participating in the dystopian hell scape of present day.

Find a way into convincing myself every week that the browns have a chance to win.

Making 100,000 posts on the OC

Yell at tv on game changing officiating or when coaches/athletes have a sub par understanding of the clock/other strategies 

Drive 65 miles to school

Watch Impractical jokers, Friends, Big Bang Theory even though I’ve seen them all a lot.

Go to bed late AF most nights, knowing I work early the next morning

Political stuff (or even political-adjacent stuff) on social media is the sort of thing I avoid to speak on pretty much all the time. I do get laughs out of reading other peoples' stuff, but I'm not going to get involved!

For me, it's probably responding to a couple poli-posters here for any reason other than simply laughing at them. I'll write out this post that ranges from .25 to .5 OTrap in length, submit it and then think I'm a big idiot for wasting a few minutes because I'm thinking I'm going to have an impact on the mentality of people who are so set in their beliefs that they only listen to/believe stuff that backs up what they want to hear.

I’ve noticed this on your post time stamps and don’t know how you do it!


And Heretic: fwiw…..I enjoy your comments in political threads very much. 


And as for me, I have a little bit of an OCD problem…..like checking locks several times even though I know they are locked and straightening crooked pictures.

There are occasions when I see your post times and know you have to drive 65 miles to work.  I couldn’t do that.

Every other day there’s actually another teacher from my town and we carpool. So when she drives I can get a 45 min nap in on the highway….and on way home too.

During the fall though I am on my own a lot as I coach and many Saturday mornings of driving 75 miles to high school, jumping on bus for big meet 40-80 miles away and returning early afternoon and driving 75 miles back. About 8 straight Saturdays from mid September through early Nov….mixed in watching baseball playoffs in their entirety, I’m rough shape come season’s end.

I did 2 years of 75 miles each way to work.  It about killed me.  You’re a tougher man than me.

Probably just dumber. Enjoying the $4.09 gas prices. I typically drive 63 mph and go around 470 miles per tank in my very old Accord….gas spiked and lately I’ve knocked it back to 58 mph and made it 540 miles lol…..so basically saving about $0.50 a gallon driving 5 miles an hour slower.

I’d always heard the claim that driving 1 mph slower than 65 would save $0.17 a gallon. Maybe it’s true in less efficient gas hogs.

Trying to make Ptown understand that trannies are .01% of the population and the fact he cares makes him not the moderate he thinks he is. Also trying to change anyone minds here 

Oh and drinking more than I should, which might make more sense for some of my posts.

I definitely stay up way too late. The nice thing is I can sleep in pretty much as late as I want unless I have a morning meeting. The perks of a remote job with flexible hours.

I also drink more than I probably should some nights.

For a year or so, basically the 9 months before we got married and the 3 months after, I was doing 65 mile commutes. She worked in Wooster and had her apartment there, and I worked in Salem. My parents lived 5 minutes from my work, so I would crash there every other night just to soften the blow/make the round trip every 2 days. We had just started a 9/80 schedule at work so the 4 day weeks it worked well. We then got a house in the middle (Massillon).

Now with where we live (Tallmadge) and the mix of a 9/80 at work and a work from home 2 days a week policy I drive 35 miles each way 2-3 days a week - much more tolerable.
