When I was a first/second level a journeymen pointed out that it made sense that I wore green pants since I was new. :lol:

Mark's is a pain. Trying to find everything at one store like that never works.
There was only 1 store in wpg that had my size of boots... Everywhere was sold out and I needed them before I go back up north.

The polo location has my pants most of the time, I guess my size and the color combo is a rare combo.

lmao yep

Just be glad you've never worked on a Hydro site before :lol:

I drove to 3 Marks locations today trying to find new boots and pants. Polo didn't have either, but Dakota had the boots I want, but they didn't have my pants, so I had to go to the one on Kenaston... All because I don't want to wear black or brown work pants. Gotta get them Timberland boots and green double front Carhartts.

That's pretty good. I really wanted to get R888s and everyone told me they would be done in one summer. Yet I drive my car once a week if I'm lucky. And it's only 2300lbs .
Probably going to be the tire of choice when it comes to it

GF had her car windows smashed while she was working the other day and last night had her gym bag grabbed from her as she walked into work.

St.B is the new ghetto.

Q300 on the FA20 motors is extremely quiet. Not sure why but its only slightly louder than stock.

Make sure you're comparing the same car models as the 2015+ WRXs will sound completely different than the STIs

YUP! Dynos can be double to triple what a E-Tune can run. Atleast from the companies that I researched when shopping around

Thought so but wasn't 100% sure so I didn't want to say for sure.

There you go OP. E-tuning, Perfect Performance and try SF.

Yep.

Lots of people like the invidia q300. It's not too loud and it sounds good. @Igor has it. @John has a Greedy catback IIRC. Both are usually at FNL.

In other news, I have an upper respiratory infection of some kind. Had to take the morning off work the other day to be driven to Gillam to see a doctor. My lungs sounded clear so it's in the upper part or something..I honestly can't remember. They didn't give me any sort of antibiotics because it's viral which really ****ing sucks because it's going to take 2-3 to clear up, meanwhile I'm short of breath at work sometimes, I'm also coughing like a mofo.

Doctor suggested I get lemon drops from the grocery store :lol:

Sooo your negative bias is from employment rather than services obtained from said company. I'm sure they treat their customers better than their employees, and there's also two sides to every story.

Definitely talk to Chad though, SF has a dyno, but not an AWD Dyno. I forget that places that are "close" that have AWD dynos and tuners in house.

Might be some form of e-tuning out there for Evos, maybe the place that does @Igor tunes also provides them for Mitsu's?

Haha what?

Found out there's an issue with my Access account. Made a new one to try and see what the issue could be and I get no options with my original account. Keeps refreshing the page and booting me out.

And of course the help lines are busy and they won't respond to emails.

Also what's the deal with no hold? You get a busy signal and need to keep calling back.
injection injuries are common with mechanics, or at least those who work on hydraulics

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_pressure_injection_injury

The phone lines are busy because if you fail a level you have to call in to register or go in person iirc.

It's an absolute joke. I'd say try going down there in person but that might be a **** show still tomorrow

Drove by that white CTR off Main last night :')

Dunno if I have much of a voice since I'll probably miss every FNL this summer, but the Halfmoon/Skinner's cruises were always really fun.

There's also Eva's Gelatto on Corydon that has a pretty decent sized lot (just west of Stafford and Corydon)

Greg's DQ if they're still open that late (I forget his hours)...and if he wants to be busy right before he closes :lol:

I still miss the old BP supperclub cruises with the Team Pizzas.

They're not closing hospitals lol. They're changing ER's into urgent cares and moving around resources.

Closing an entire hospital lol. What. Unless I missed something....
You're right. I worded it wrong. Still retarded.

I live close to East St. Paul, so the closest hospital to me is HSC which is about a 20-25 minute drive. To the Concordia is was about 5 minutes, so I can see why a lot of people are pissed about that. But yeah I think it's not the worst decision to do and just convert those ERs into Urgent Care.

What they should have done was ran ads to inform people of what the purpose of an ER is and what Urgent Care do. They also should give nurses the ability to turn people away if they come to the ER for a stupid reason, I'm sure that would cut wait times down significantly. Although if someone cuts themselves pretty badly in the moment I can see how panicking makes them want to go to the ER and not really think about it.
Except if you went to Concordia or Seven Jokes they'd send you to HSC/St.B anyways because there's some things those hospitals cannot handle. For example, if you get stabbed badly enough and go to St.B they will transfer you to HSC since they're more trauma, but if you're hypothermic they'll send you to St.B, obviously they'd send you by ambulance though, but it's still a delay.

My GF (ER nurse) wishes she could send people away, especially the ones bitching about wait times. If you're waiting it's a good thing, if you're in right away you're in trouble. People forget it's a triage system.

Yeah, a big problem I think is people going to an ER when they really shouldn't be. Backlogs everything.

The ads from the union aren't helping anything either, giving half the information, giving people the wrong idea. The government is terrible at giving information too. No one really has any idea what's actually going on.
the problem with those ads and those flyers saying "what is an emergency and what isn't" is they forget that people panic when something's wrong, or, don't know the difference. Although in rare occasions the symptoms could be super mild but could be something serious, like meningitis and injection injuries (looking at you @cluelessk ) which obviously happens.

What rattles alot of people at St.B is that they're already more busy in the evenings because Miseri is no longer open overnight so they're getting an influx of low priority crap, like people coming in because they don't have a family doctor and this is a hospital that already has high wait times because they literally do not have the room. All other ERs (including the ones closing) have had renovations/expansions except for St.B. They're emerg department is small AF, I've been in there a couple times visiting my girlfriend. They're waiting room is smaller than Grace Hospital's, and Grace isn't even a tertiary hospital..hell, St.B still has the backlit boards that you hang X-rays on, but all x-rays are digital now.

Also, keep in mind that nurses (not sure about doctors) have a gag order in their contract that prevents them from talking about current policy change on social media and most likely in person (not sure about the latter)

Let's not forget about the cuts to programs as well, such as post natal (like teaching new mom's how to properly breast feed),Occ Therapy/Phys Therapy, day hospitals/services for seniors, etc.
