Sad thing happened to me on monday…I was breaking in a new inspector for the city…you know…having conversations, talking about the work ahead and the many challenges and you know…normal office talk.
We went out on our inspections as it was his first day…all seemed fine.
Came to work on Tuesday and he did not show up…i was worried i ran him off…got a call about mid-day…and i was shocked at what i was told.
He went home monday night and had a heart attack and died…I knew the man only 1 day…
Life is short…its not all WORK…make time for the things that really count…your family.
Funny this should come up today, I heard on the news today that the Monster Truck show was coming this weekend and I’m scheduled to work. I thought to myself, I always say “sometime soon”. So I went on-line (kind of like the point of no return) and got me some tickets for the show. Now I feel even more satisfied that I did.
I found out a past girlfreind whom I still considered a special person had died.
Same kind of feeling , in that you realise there is no time like now.
I keep a wooden sign attached under my rear view mirror , and it says ;
BE PRESENT WHERE YOU ARE.
Sometimes in looking ahead we forget to (be now).
So true Paul
On october 31st I played 18 holes of golf with my little Brother…about 10 days later I watched him die in a hospital bed from coplications following a routine surgery…He was my best friend and we had so much left to do and so many things left to say…don’t put anything off …You never know how much time You have …jim
This is SOOO sad…someone just does not get it and they are an A-HOLE to boot…OH and too much of a COWARD to post a name behind the post. Yet another reason why experts hate helping some people…they are simply a poor excuse for a human being…and obviously the smart A$$ that posted that on my story has no clue…do you want to read about the guy who dies…visit the online newspaper for Richmond, VA and search the obits for an man named Arthur Case Jr…you will see the man is dead…GROW UP…nothing I POST is BS…if you open up your EYES you will see that PINHEAD !!!
That brings back flashbacks from elementary school.

I understand how you feel. When I was a young, just out of the Navy, engineer, I was required by policy to let a man go that showed up on a jobsite intoxicated for the second day in a row. I took him to the bus stop, bought him a ticket home. Three hours later he stepped off the bus into the path of another bus at the station and was killed.
