I tell my coworker & he asks, "What town was it?"
"I dont know. It's in the paper."
"Oh, state paper. Not local guy then."

Here's the thing - I'm so INFURIATED by people constantly seeking EXCUSES!!!
Not my town
Not my age
Not my job
Not my... So NOT ME???????

WTF WRONG WITH YOU


Edit: telling the trooper news to coworker, she answered with news of a different coworker died as well.

Animal rescue team & their animals were turned away from Kabul airport.

Look, I love animals? However, No, any space on any airplane leaving goes to humans right now. Period.

After we get all the people out /then/ we will may have seats availab?e for stray dogs.

If you want to stay behind with the animals that's your decision.

Honestly though, you guys need to turn the whole project over to locals, let them take over looking after the animals while you get yourselves the heck out.
