Dayshifter fun...

I had one of them pull a double shift to split the campus with me & surprise surprise surprise (as Gomer Pyle would say) He wasn't too happy to hear some calls come in for him that he said were given out & should have been addressed by his fellow shifters.

I laughed & said...welcome to our world on off shift. I think more of those folks should pull a few & feel the love their coworkers leave for them as well. It might just put an end to it. (and I feel a flying monkey getting ready to spring from my ass as well)

I was so busy with calls I didn't have time for a lunch, but one of my bros left this in the bed of my truck. Said it was his favorite brew & wanted me to try it when I got home.

Well, it isn't bad along side of a turkey pot pie. But probably not anything I would search out to stock up on. Time for a Samuel Adams.... Ice freaking cold.

The more you give...

The more people take.

If you haven't learned this fact, then you are in for a big surprise eventually.

I could lay out a competent compelling argument to support this idea. Instead, just allow yourself to contemplate that statement. If you are always late for work, never complete what is asked of you, earn the moniker of not being reliable...should you be compensated better than someone who is completely the opposite?

If you are in charge, who are you going to ask to tackle a problem. The person who is the screw up, or the one who gets shit done?

Pretty obvious what the answer should be....

So, why would you ask the exemplary employee to do more, yet allow those who do not, to get better raises & overlook their abysmal behavior?

It's not a rhetorical question. I know the answer.

Some nights....

Are gravy, while others...are like last night. Man, I was busy with one call after the other of broken shit. No worries, I cruised through the requests, but you have to shake your head at people.

I mean, one call at an offsite in a room & then an hour later, I get another call for the same room for a different problem (why not tell me about it while I was there the first time) They had no answer to that question.

I've been trying to catch this guy, who has been clogging up toilets in this one restroom on purpose. I have it down to the fact that he works on days & unless I come in early & hide to catch him, it isn't going to happen. It's no big deal, easy time served, but that behavior escalates. I have had my share of secret shitters.

People who like to take a dump in sinks, wipe it on doorknobs, or lay one on a bench.You name it, someone has decided to poop on it. Oh the stories I could tell you about dealing with that subject.

Time for a cold one.

Party On...

Pop decided that he now wants to get back into welding small jobs on the side.

Every time he gets an idea...I get to do some work..

I partied with my sister tonight & she got me a drone, but I'm smart enough to not play with it while I'm buzzed... With age comes wisdom.

I have been going full tilt the last couple of days. Not enough time to get everything finished. That should be etched on my stone...Not enough time to piss everyone off.

Just remember, I'm dancing as fast as I can.

Never Forget..

I hope everybody flew their flag in honor of Pearl Harbor Day. I had a crazy night at work but I made it through the rain as they say.

I was flipping through the TV channels and come across the abominable dr. phibes.  There isn't very many Vincent Price movies I don't like.  This one and the sequel are pretty damn cool.

A generation of young people who instead of whining about small inconveniences in their lives, fought to protect freedom for the entire planet. They certainly earned the moniker the greatest generation.

I for one will never forget.

Try it...

So I did... And you know what.... I don't care what kind of food I wind up tossing down the old gullet...Nothing satisfies me any better than a plain old peanut butter sandwich & a cold beer.

I'm just a low maintenance kind of dude.

This concoction is called a Yucatan bowl. It has all kinds of stuff they crammed in it. First my stomach hated me...then my colon joined in.

Nothing like a symphony in an acoustically tuned rest room. I highly recommend it if you are in need of a body cleanse. kind of like eating McDonalds, but with much brighter colors.

Don't worry, I'm self medicating....

It's alive...

Sometimes, you encounter situations that remind you of horror movies. You know, the ones where you go, I wouldn't go in there, or I wouldn't do that...

Yet you find yourself right in the middle of the shit anyway. Kind of like that episode of Gilligan when he is saying I'm not doing it & you can't make me...then you see him in the dress in the next shot.

The last couple of days.... Lets just say, started a nasty drain Saturday night & they were still working on it when I went in Sunday. Here Gilligan..... Oh, we got it, but it's hard to go on an odor call while you are dealing with something like this. Because when you arrive, all you are smelling is the depths of the corner of Hell that you just pulled yourself away from.

And people wonder why I love flowers.

I'm also getting a Hepatitis A shot Wednesday...An ounce of prevention.... My annual test for TB exposure is coming up soon as well. There are those I know who won't bother to take precautions like get vaccinated...Well, you do as you like, but in the world we live in & what I get exposed to... & have seen... I'll let them run their mouth on facebook. Me... I like waking up & not have found my penis fell off during the night.
