So call up the bank to find out they did bill me for the item but for some reason my old military address was the active one that needed to be used. Take care of the card problem.

    Again, I call back to correct the problem with the purchase with the company. Get through the whole order again and the card information is wrong again. So I'm like wtf. I tell the kid, he sounded like a kid on the phone; my MiL. address. He's like is that some halfway home address? Excuse me? No, that's a military address. Marine Corps. Oh, well I hate the military and they do nothing for this country. I keep my patience with this kid. Give him the needed information. Mind you the whole time he's huffing and puffing, not speaking clearly into the phone. Basically being a giant D-bag because I served this country. Okay, I get it but, don't be an a$$hole to me on the phone about it, since I am the customer who is keeping his mouth shut about your comments towards me. I complete the order so I thought.

    Something in me told me to call back to make sure. This time the associate was nice and immediately saw the problem with my order.

    Come to find out that mother fvcker typed up the wrong information. I shlt you not. 1234 Darwin lane. Phone number 123-456-7890. Order number 0987654321 <---- Actually typed this into the information box.

    I get transferred to the supervisor because of this. Explain to him what happened. We fix the problem, free overnight shipping. Would have cost 29$ btw and hopefully I actually did convince him to drug test this mofo cause he did sound high as hell, not to mention being disrespectful to a service member but to a customer as well. Some people need to keep there own thoughts and opinions to themselves. Hopefully karma catches up to this punk and rears it's ugly head. /
    You did the right thing... hopefully some kid learns a lesson the hard way as to the error of his ways. Don't ever fvck with a Marine, they can and will cut your head off and sh*t down your neck in the blink of an eye.

    I know she won't go for something so drastic... yet. I hope she doesn't have to resort to that :/

    No guarantees with that disease. It could be not so bad. It could go away on it's own. It's all over the place.

    Don't get freaked.
    Educate yourself?

    Isn't that the truth, a Marines temper is about .00000001 sec fuze from going peaceful to a nice violent throat punch.

    Hopefully, he does learn a lesson, hopefully it's something valuable in which a vet helps him and the only thing he can do is swallow his pride.

Granted, I'd rather be where I am now than be in the complete fog I was in throughout most of 2009, but that doesn't change how frustrating it is.

    My attention to detail suffers the most. I tend to be pretty meticulous and I used to notice the little things pretty quickly. Now, it can take me a very long time to notice them. This is probably the biggest factor in things taking longer to do now. I have a pretty deep fear that it's going to result in some really tough going once I hit the job market shortly.

    I was definitely humbled when I went in to the hospital feeling all sorry for myself. Compared to some of the crap that other patients had to go through, my treatment was a cake-walk. I walked out of there under my own steam every day and never puked once. And I came out cured! I was very lucky.

    It's no wonder I don't get pissed off anymore. Cured of stage 4 carcinoma and I ride a mountain bike.
    I'm going to do a lot less complaining. I'd also like to be there for someone who is a lot less fortunate then I am.

    Cancer pisses me off too. It just took the life of a friend tonight. I didn't see her too often because of distance, but it's a very tight-knit community and it's hit all of us pretty hard. She battled for a couple of years before she was discharged from the hospital yesterday so she could say her farewells. It was a tumor behind her heart, and she was in one of the best hospitals in the country. They just couldn't win against it.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    I have a friend who's on a severe downward turn lately and I think this might be the time. She has had severe downturns before but this time the docs can't get her liver functioning right. Jaundice, ammonia in her blood, nasty. Stage 4 breast cancer for her. She has been living with it since before I met her 2 1/2 years ago. It is a miracle in itself

    So we're in agreement then. Cancer sucks.

    This should really piss us off then.

    Yep. Funny how I started to feel unwell after the XC season finished and epic training sessions died off.
    Decked out at work a few times over the last 2 weeks. First time was a really weird feeling. Felt kind of off, got up from desk to get some wind in my sails/get some fresh air, and bam. Felt like my heart was in my throat and everything just kinda blurred out till I was on the floor.

    The times after that just really really sucked and is at the point now where if I feel a little strange, I get super anxious that I will hit the deck again - which seems to fuel the fire, so to speak.

    Already been over diet and hydration levels, so next step is this heart holter thing. To be honest it sucks a lot to wear it (only been a few hours thus far) but I am at the point where I will do almost anything to be back to feeling 100% again.

    Did sneak out a ride last weekend, but was only a quick one at 30% output just in case.

    Her cancer is in her brain and spinal cord now, and she's going to hospice.
