It's not just you.

Over the last 5 days or so, I've been getting a lot of complaints from people. The complaints are because I am never around when anyone calls, sends me an IM, or stops to visit. Let me give you a little background on why this is so...

My typical workday starts at 7:15AM and ends around 7:00PM. This is ONLY the part of my workday that I call my "day job". I am usually on the clock for about 10 hours and 30 minutes, if not more, so by the time I get home I am completely worn out.

After that, I have work that I have to do to get caught up with my obligations (paying projects, etc.). If you want a detailed list of what I have to do, e-mail me about it. Otherwise, just keep in mind that I am working all the way up until about 10:45PM.

Now, you have to factor in some other things, here... Eating, resting, hygene, family time, other personal issues (job placement, etc.), and the list goes on... By the time you figure in all the time I have to just sit and relax (without being bothered), it works out to about 5 minutes is all.

The reason I have not been returning phone calls or responding to messages from AIM, Yahoo, etc., is because of all that you see outlined above. I'm not trying to be a dick by any means; I just need some time for me, which I have very little of.

There are some options for you to get a hold of me, though...

First off, there's a thing called "e-mail" which anyone who is reading this has. You should know my e-mail address already if you're one of the people who is taking this message to heart.

Second, I work at Quck Hick's Lube Express. I am usually at the shop in Rensselaer, but I also work at the shop in Wheatfield quite often. Stop in and visit me while I work.

Third, be patient! I intend to return all the phone calls and such as I can. You may hear from me this week, you may not hear from me until 2 weeks down the road.

If anyone has any problem with this at all, there's a PayPal button on Skudd.com where you can donate some money to me. I'm not asking for you to, but if you are able to complain about me not being able to be reached during what most people call "normal hours", then donate some money so I don't have to work so hard.

Just do what I do and don't use messengers. They allow for mistakes anyways that 99% of the time email will prevent.

All I want is for Denny to call back. Is that so much to ask?!
