      A guy 3x my size tried to fight me today.


      He was drunk and being a complete moron on the go cart track. Im like 90lbs but I wont let some douche talk to me like that. He would go around the turn and then do a complete circle.

      After he slammed into one of the barriers and broke it. I pulled his DA off.

      Was not in the mood to deal with with it. It was dumb. Ive broken my neck and if he would have hit me it would have probably disloged a screw and killed me. 3 of my co workers came and backed me up. I really thought he was going to hurl his helmet at me.

      Drinking + Go Carts = really stupid people.

      At 90 lbs. (probably an exaggeration) , I'm about 2.5X your size. If someone is going to get drunk, they need to stay at home and be rational. It's not about size but level of intelligence. Picking on a smaller person, or anyone for that matter, is unacceptable, in my book. I've never been a bully but have been bullied many times in my life.

      Why can't we all just get along?

      (sort of drunk, at home, reply)

      2oh,

      kant stress enough how valuable this is. Be the one they call or does "that". This has served me well.

I calmly gave some backstory and let them know when I came out initially, followed by a general timeline for stuff and some general things that they could expect, ie my hair changing, body changes, cosmetic changes, voice pitch, etc. I said that HR was ready to help out with any intimate questions they may have. And I lastly explained that my name was still my name but I'm probably adding an "ly" to it, making it Blakely. But they could say Blake for short and for now at least in the short term.

      That’s awesome, really happy for you and that you are in a supportive environment.

      Pretty offended abut the weed comment. I need it as it keeps me seizure free. I have a seizure then I am unable to drive for 6 months which means unemployed too. Not good for the family either.

      Don’t worry dudes I can stop posting.

      Away from home a week as of today. Getting all the feels missing the kids.

      Still have awhile to go, fly home Tuesday night. Won't see them until Wednesday.

      Long trip one of three this year.

      You missed the point. Driving around on donut spares & bubbled tires for more than a few miles is dangerous. Fix the cars or park them.

      So did someone get to lick out the filling or was it just a chocolate frosted donut?

      Agreed, Steve. We get the medicinal part. I know it brings you a lot of relief. I think it was more making safe tires a priority.

      Sympathy for the Devil.

      Out of the goodness of my heart I am here all day for $6.46.

      Volunteer day.......I was told I could just tell them what I wanted and they would give me the $ out of petty cash (long story) instead I just bought a can of spray paint and some cable clips on the company card.

      small company I know I'll get points

      So it's Blakely, not Blake-Leigh, right??
