How long will you be off of work SC?


I took three banked overtime days, and now get three bereavement days. Can access the sick plan if necessary. Probably working Sunday unless there is something going on.

So, not an extended leave..

Was your brother married with a family?

Right now, I don't think I need an extended leave. I can book off sick if needed. More than three days would require a doctors note, and sick checks often get delayed too..

He was happily married, two teen boys.

As long as you have time to attend the arrangements..

Two teen boys are now without their father..

I do remember you mentioning that before..

That's so sad growing up without your father.

I was a little hellion and my dad was alive and at with my mom when I was that age. I wonder how bad I would've been if he had not been around.

You and Superchecker turned out very well..

The odds are against any child who doesn't grow up in a stable, two parent home.

Yea. No bus service next wed-fri. Thousands of people here will be affected. Bus drivers are not wearing their uniforms. Some go to work wearing cow suits. They get very little breaks. Have to make it to the station/final stop in time or they will have to give up break time to start the next run at its scheduled time. Traffic is bad. People get angry when buses are late. A lot of bus exchange stations do not have any break room. Just a washroom.

More lounges are being built. Bus drivers need to be treated better.

I believe you said you don't use transit TVG?

You drive to work, correct?

There was a brief mention of it on the news, and it was on news feeds.
