      Brick Shed Cost

      The price to build a brick shed ranges from $3,200 to $30,000, or $50 to $150 per square foot. This type costs the most because it uses expensive materials and takes longer to install.

  1. I would just like to say that I work with incredibly stupid people and I want to launch them all into the sun. If you get a voice message from me saying something about bail please set up a Go Fund Me.

      1. Seriously I am tired of their lazy shit and I am going to have a conversation with our in-house attorney and the big boss when they are back from time off and just shut this crap down. It won't work until a few more of them get fired but I am going to scare them. People work here for years doing utterly crap work and never get fired. The managers who screw up get fired and they should be, but the worker bees don't and they just carry forward the institutional memory of doing a whole lot of stupid, and different stupid every time, and so nothing changes. They think they are untouchable. I am so exhausted from this crazy-making behavior that I just want to scream.

          1. They do! It is amazing. Truly a gift. I am continually amazed at their creativity, at how they can do one job for 15 years, a job made up of simple tasks such as directing people to fill out various forms, and how yet screw it up differently every. single. time. For YEARS.

            Some of these people should be fired, but the people who have been in charge of them over the years have never followed the proper disciplinary steps. So my boss is now having to start from scratch with disciplinary steps with each of them. He will get to each of them one by one and out they will go, but it will take a long time. In the meantime, I have to deal with their very agile and creative stupidity and try not to get too apoplectic over it. Because of course when I call them on their nonsense I am always seen as the crazy one, always seen as making a mountain out of a molehill, I am always the "problem." Fortunately my boss gets it, he has had it worse than me. The difference is that he has power, I do not.

          2. This has been going on for some long time it seems . Is that obnoxious little punk still there?

            Is there no way you can make their life a living hell? Go apeshit on them every day?

          3. The punk is still there. He was spoken to and he piped down. I don't think he'd ever been given any constructive criticism from a superior before. I think it shook him to his core, which: good. He needed help. I still will never trust him again, but that is the consequence of his screaming at people.

            Going apeshit would not accomplish anything and would just disempower me more. Plus that's not a thing to do, that is what venting outside of work is for.

            They just need to be fired one by one, picked off, through disciplinary action.

  2. This tweet went well…………..

      1. Back in natureorg days, one of my favorite things to do on these holidays was go into work and kill invasive exotic plants.

      1. Really? I don't have an account.

        Editorial: A free-flowing Klamath River, at last

        This week’s agreement featured Gov. Gavin Newsom and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown in a virtual announcement that also drew a supportive statement from Buffett. This summer, Newsom had appealed directly to the financier to stay in negotiations and not upend the settlement.

        The public relations salvo underscores the top-level endorsement. It also brings up the intriguing idea of giving new life to a 257-mile river running through two states, a pair of Native American reservations and a slice of California’s wildest backcountry.

        1. I actually used to have an account there. They changed things, now no matter what time of month, it says I've reached my limit. Cookies, no cookies, doesn't change anything.

  3. This is FNYT paywalled, but all we need
