    Default OMG I had to use the snowblower

    My husband is out of town and we had enough snow that I had to clear it. So I called my husband to figure out how to turn the stupid snowblower on, and then it got really loud and I couldn't hear him tell me how to run it once it was on and I figured i'd just wing it. But I didn't get much done and it ran out of gas or something. I was very cold as I couldn't find my hat and my gloves aren't made for that kind of thing. It is my new least favorite thing in the world to do. I prefer changing poopy diapers. I will gladly change a thousand poopy diapers before doing that again.

    He's sending his friend (LSE) over to finish the driveway and sidewalk today.

    This should probably be in anything goes but all people involved are Delta so I put it here.

    Also, fittingly perhaps, a time to be obnoxious about implying what delta NFs should be doing on days like today..

    I have an electric oven so that wouldn't be a very effective way to gas myself.

    Anyway, he came and cleared the drive and sidewalk, but didn't seem overjoyed by having to do it. He wasn't cranky, just very matter of fact. I think my husband owes him a favor. But it's done!

    It actually looks like she's leaning on her right knee and reaching forward with her right shoulder, so she could very well be cleaning

    Did you prime the sporkinator first?

    You should get your husband to check when he gets back; it can cause undue spanning stress on the bushings which is a common problem for snowblower tramshafts.

    Oh, I've heard him talk about the names of engine parts enough to know that's bullshit.

    I think that might be the reflection of the back of a chair from a dining set.

    Did anyone else read this and wonder whether fmh was just making shit up? I've heard of bushings before and tramshaft at least sounds legitimate, but a sporkinator? I mean, seriously...

    I met this IEE who thought it would be a good idea to scrape her windshield off without wearing gloves in 20 degree weather.

    Well it's not as though it's a bad idea. Scraping the windows on your car takes about a minute and 20 degrees F is really not that cold at all. I mean wearing gloves is definitely preferable, but if the choice was "carry gloves to scrape windows in 20F then get in my car and drive in the city" or "scrape windows with barehands in 20F and don't bother bringing your gloves because you're just driving in the city anyways" then I would definitely choose the latter. Especially given the regularity with which I lose my mitts.

    It took much longer than a minute, and it was actually probably much colder than that (0 F?), my bad. The point is that when she got back in the car she was like zomg my hands hurt so much, and plus I had gloves in the car.

    I do that sometimes, usually in cases when I forget to wear gloves (like left them at home).

    I do that routinely. I usually forget to bring my gloves out. I got some nice ones for Christmas though.

    I used to forget them too. For me, the solution to this emerged sort of naturally, as I was too lazy to put them away every time - and so I ended up keeping a pair of gloves in every coat I own. Bonus is always having matched gloves and coat, since they were chosen for it in the first place.

    OK, maybe a bit of Socionics but probably a bit of coincidence, but I was at this gift exchange for Christmas with a group where I volunteer, and someone in the group who is an ILI gave a whole bunch of gloves for her gift, with that being the exact reason why someone would need like 4 or 5 pairs of gloves. You'll always have gloves no matter where you are. Put one in every coat pocket and keep some in the car, she said.

    That's the spirit, just give that kind of stuff to Delta STs, they gotta be good for somethin'. "Hey honey, I think I done hurt meself trying fixing the sink ..." *show some unrelated scratch that caused blood* "Alright, let me do it". Pretty easy.

    In my mind, the scenario is more like, delta NF goes "OW!" <look at booboo> Delta ST comes over, says "I'll do it" or "let me do it" (without the "all right" which makes it sound like reluctance). Delta NF says "no no, I can do it!" Delta ST is like "um, ok..." Then delta NF goes "OW!!" again. At that point Delta ST takes the tool and is like "you do it like this".
