    A couple of ideas.  She has a psychological thing she's not admitting to.  Perhaps she thinks she can smell her own sweat or something and opts to cover what she *thinks* is an offensive odor.

    Maybe she eats a lot of raw veggies and farts a lot.

    Maybe she s just a contrarian and wants to do what she wants in spite of someone complaining about it.

    I'm betting it's the psych thing.

    Well, she forgets a lot of things.  She'll do something or not do something and our boss will say something and she acts like it's brand new information.

    I imagine it's psychological, because I think she has some other mental issues, based on how she acts sometimes.  It's just weird to walk in and see something spraying themselves with lysol.

    I'm also aware that I probably have a bad tone when I talk about her.  She makes my life difficult, and 40 hours of that every week can wear on you.  But I'm trying to develop a more "whatever" attitude.

    If this is the same woman who has things scribbled on pieces of paper that she later can't find when she needs them, I am leaning towards a learning disability. I know that was a theory of yours as well.

    She might be highly functional but just marginal IQ. I knew a girl like that once. Looked and acted normal. Ask her any question requiring her to know something and she'd giggle and get embarrassed and let on that she "isn't smart"

    Safe travels. I drove straight thru to Alabama worked today then drove a couple hours to Tuscaloosa
    Heading out in the morning for a 6 hour drive to work in Shreveport. Then 4 hours home. Breaking the new truck in right.

    The travel was safe, but a pain in the ass. I forgot how much better amtrak buses are than greyhound. My return bus was delayed by an hour and a half, so I got back to town late. Totally sucked. The time spent in Portland was great though!

    Just seems weird to pay for extra people if there's not any extra people. Maybe you could get some mannequins to fill in the empty numbers.

    Oh, no, I agree, it's ridiculous to pay for people who aren't there. In order to taste some wines.

    That sucks, but I'm guessing the bride thinks it's reasonable for everyone to accept that it's what she wants. Every other decisions is based on her so why not this one.
    When you take the plunge, you can get revenge by making them all join you at Comic con for Stephen Amell pictures.

    I hear they have an amazing bar there, though.

    How is a picture with Steve Amell a punishment?

    Yea, we will do what she wants, if we can all afford it, but I don't have to like it. Right now, only 2 other people have said they would be willing to pay the extra money for the tour, so if we don't get any more, it won't be worth the money. We could buy whole bottles of wine for the price we are going to pay to taste 8 wines.

    Evenin' gang. Not much going on lately. Getting excited for next week when I go up to Portland for a concert on my birthday. The next few shifts at work will probably feel longer for the anticipation. How y'all doin?

    Also, new poll's up.
