I was putting together a bookshelf, how hard should that be? It's not like putting together a desk unit or an entertainment center. It's just a frame and 2 shelves. I finish putting the whole thing together, I'm all proud that I finished it in less than 20 minutes. I set it upright to put it in position and realize that the bottom is on upside-down so the unfinished side is facing up. I'm so goddam pissed. All the brads and screws and everything are in, there's no way I'm taking off the backer board and flipping the shelf over.

Me too. But mine was a dresser. After a week of looking at it, I finally fixed it.

Throw a decorative piece of cloth over the shelf and problem solved!

Can you paint it? Or is it particle board covered by a wood grain-like tacky paper?

We're going to just throw books on it and it'll take the focus away from my shitty construction job.

Well, just be ready. When you least expect it, you'll get the not-so-subtle reminder from the wife. Over and over and over again.

Get a ruler, measure how much space the books take on the shelf, multiply the number of inches by the conversion chart below.

Novels and Fictional Titles: $25
Text Books: $50
5+ year old text books: $10
50+ year old comic books: $10,000
Red Wing memorabilia: worthless

just found out that my principal has taken a new role in the school, we're getting a new principal (probably some young punk jackass) and this upcoming year is going to be hell. I knew we were in for some major structural changes, but we were promised no leadership changes in June. If I knew this crap was going to happen, I would have pursued a transfer.

Very pissed off. My principal was the freakin' best boss.

I'm going to bitch about this gif. It's not realistic at all. First of all, the whole can would blow up in the real world because the fumes would carry from the guy right into there. Second, it looks like a stick man not a real man. F!

Milt, we're gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?
