Hoping This Helps Any

I may have mentioned that I work as a dispatcher for PA State Police. Due to something recent I feel the need to offer proper advice to help any of you in the future.

If EVER you have a friend or loved one that you believe is in danger of being harmed or harming themself, do call the police in the area where the friend or loved one lives or is currently located.

An example: Sibling A receives an email from sibling B suggesting suicide. Sibling A should call the police department that covers the town that sibling B resides. Sibling A can explain the situation and ask for a welfare check on sibling B and/or make arrangements to meet the police at sibling B's home to determine if there is a real cause for concern. Sibling A should not wait, EVER. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Sibling A should provide full name of sibling B including proper spelling of name, age, date of birth, physical description and any known medical/mental health problems. A description of sibling B's vehicle is very helpful. Sibling A should give the best explanation of the last time sibling B was seen or heard from and the nature of that communication. Think of people and places that are relevant to sibling B. Start calling everyone that is known to sibling B. Definitely provide information on any firearms owned or thought to be owned.

Searching for the proper Police Dept is easy. Start with Google and pick a department and call to see if they cover the area where the friend or loved one resides. If not, they may know the department that does cover that area and provide you with contact info. Never wait. Also be aware that most police departments in rural areas have fewer officers working at night than during the day and evening shifts. An active domestic is going to take precedent over a welfare check. It may be a while before the officers can check on the friend/loved one.

Back in May I moved into this rental. I had no idea about the neighbors or that the property owner would hire a different management company. The new management company wouldn't reach out to me. I only knew about them through the neighbor who has the same property owner. So I had to reach out to them to find out the name of the contact person and where I am to send the rent.

Then I get this email where I am supposed to go to the website and review the lease and sign. I agree with everything in the lease except part. The lease states that you have to have the carpet professionally cleaned when you move out. That is not happening. I own my carpet cleaner and there is no reason to pay someone to clean what little carpet there is here. What a crock of shit. I am not allowed pets and I'm the only one living here. How damn dirty can the carpet get?

The neighbors are quiet, but they are allowed 2 dogs. We share a yard and their dogs are tied out most of the day or they let them run around. Which means they are shitting on my side of the yard all the time and digging holes. So I sprayed my side of the yard with ground clear. Now its just mud from all the rain and I hope the dogs are nice and dirty. The neighbors let their dogs shit on my side but wouldn't cut the grass on my side and I refuse to cut it with dog shit everywhere. That's why I sprayed my side with the ground clear.

So now I am looking for a house to buy. I don't need a large house, but I need a place that has a yard so I can have a dog. The houses for sale in my area in my price range are all fixer uppers. Which basically means, SHITHOLE. I need something small but move in ready with a yard. Everything that is move in ready is too big or to pricey. I'm just one person with one income. Not made of money.

I'm basically obsessed with this right now.
Is There Really Proof In The Pudding?

I went to my favorite little country store today to buy my favorite flavor of pudding mix. It's Peach Mango in case you were wondering. This is not something I could buy at the big grocery store chains. I look on the shelf and there isn't any. I asked about it and I was told that they no longer will be carrying that flavor. Now it is Orange Dream.

So I got to thinking, you can buy pretty much any thing on the internet, why not pudding mix. So I did a search for sugar free pudding mix and I found a site from a company in Virginia that sells many products that are free. The company sells a large assortment of the usual flavors and some not so usual flavors. I bought 6 3oz bags of my choice of flavors. I chose banana, toffee, butter pecan, strawberry, cheesecake, and orange. I can't wait to try the toffee and butter pecan. I plan on serving in a glass with layers of pudding and graham cracker crumbs. I think I might put the strawberry and cheesecake flavor in one glass to get strawberry cheesecake. They have so many other flavors I want to try like hawaiian and mint chocolate chip. They even have a tiramisu flavor. All sweetened with Stevia.

No Power

Yesterday at work we lost power around 5pm. The communications room runs off of a generator and the computers each have a battery to operate off of if the generator fails. Okay, so I can still take calls but now the air conditioning is off and the windows only allow for so much air to come through. It is still hot outside.

People are calling to complain about traffic lights being out and I tell them we already know and they will not be on until the power company turns on the power again. The power outage is widespread. Slow down and be cautious.

People act like they have never experienced a power outage before. One guy called to ask how he is to stop the automated phone messages from the power company to stop. I explained that you must listen to the entire message. It explains how to opt out. WHY ARE WE CALLING THE POLICE ABOUT THIS SHIT?

I have an elderly couple with dementia walked away from a nursing home that takes precedent over some automated phone messages that are annoying. I'm getting the same messages at the station.

I didn't realize, before working for a police dept, just how lazy and helpless people really are in this world. Do you need somebody to pump your chest and breathe for you too? No wonder humanity is doomed.

When did humanity become so helpless and why? Everything is at your fingertips. We wanted things to be easier and more convenient and now people just flat out refuse to do anything for themselves. It scares me.

Good news, the power came back on 30 minutes before the end of my shift. So I did enjoy some air conditioning for a short while before going home. And the dumb shit phone calls stopped.

The area where I live has an Alert FB page to alert people of various issues. Some of those are traffic accidents, construction delays, fires, police incidents, etc. One of the nice things about this alert page is when a child runs away and everyone is alerted and will look out for the child. Makes it easier to find them. One interesting aspect is when a pet goes missing.

Horses jump fences, goats and cows get out, and cats/dogs. Usually they are found and returned to rightful owner in a matter of just a few hours. Recently, two separate incidents were posted on this page involving dogs that were clearly dumped. Both of which happen to be Pit Bull Mix. One was dumped in a public park and the other in a small town in the area.

Usually, if someone is missing a pet or farm animal within minutes they have a post up with a pic and description and contact info. Neither of these dogs had that. No one seems to know who they belong to or have ever seen them before. I find it sad that people do this shit when we have several rescues that operate in the area and a shelter about 15 minutes away.

I don't understand why people get a pet they don't really care about and then dump them. I know I wouldn't want YOU for a parent. God help the offspring of these morons.
Fish Oil?

Anyone else take a Fish Oil supplement? I was running to the bathroom all day yesterday and last night and now again this morning. The only thing different in my diet is this fish oil supplement that I am taking to help bring down my cholesterol. Could this be the problem. I can't leave the house! I felt horrible yesterday. I have shit to do and these are the last few days of my vacation. I do not want to spend them inside. Maybe I should take it every other day. IDK

If you wish in one hand and shit in the other, which will fill up first?

I wish I had a dog again. Where I live now I cannot have a pet at all. My neighbors are allowed to have two dogs and we have the same landlord. Their dogs are tied out most of the day, bark a lot, shit on my side of the yard. Oh and did I mention that it smells like urine all the time in my kitchen because of these two dogs?

At first I thought that smell was actually something in my kitchen. I scrubbed everything and couldn't get rid of the smell. But when I went out the back door, I realized it is from these dogs.

I just moved here and cannot afford to move again.

I have difficulty sleeping sometimes and usually know why. Last night I slept maybe 4 hrs, very unusual for me. I've had a continuous hot flash for the last few hours. I feel like I'm on fire, not sick and still tired. I want to sleep, but can't because of this continuous hot flash. I'm no doctor, but I'm thinking Menopause. Symptoms of Menopause often include insomnia and hot flashes, but a continuous feeling of being on fire? The AC is on and it is not helping. Now the sun is up and I feel like at some point today I will need a nap. I don't want my vacation to be like this; sleeping at odd times.

This fluctuation in hormones or whatever it is is not boding well with me right now!

For those who don't know, women do not like being called names. I know, some of you have not been properly raised or socialized. Do not tell us that you like "bitchy" women. It's all wrong and you are not getting laid. You might as well just said we are a bitch.

It is horrible when you come in contact with a woman that knows who she is and what she wants and speaks her mind. A woman that sets healthy boundaries is not bitchy or a bitch.

Get educated and know how to properly address a woman and you might get laid.

Police At My Door

I moved to the house in now at the end of May. The local police have been to my door twice now to give the mandatory fliers for Megan's Law people living in my neighborhood.

Funny thing is, I answered the door wearing my T-Shirt with the American Flag and a Blue Line through it. Shows my support for law enforcement, other than my job which is a police dispatcher.

Just thought I would share this little coincidence.

I wrote an earlier post that I had met someone on another site. Well, it's a no go. In person he doesn't seem to have much of a personality. Maybe he was nervous, maybe he didn't like me, who knows. But that chapter was short. Next chapter.

I cannot get motivated today. I just keep procrastinating. I binged the last season of Twelve Monkeys and I brushed my teeth. That has been the extent of my day.

I looked through some profiles. Nothing there. I am starting to believe that I'm not even good enough for myself. If I wouldn't date me, then why would anyone else.

Well, I have to do something. Guess I'll visit my mom and see if she needs help with anything.
