I didn't do a lot today except a bit of work in the morning and SP. It turned out to be a cool day temperaturewise which didn't bother me I wanted to sleep all day as I only got about 5 hrs again last night. Went to bed late (unusually late and still woke up at 6 ish.

    Having any days to wait for surgery must be a trial in itself, All I can do is hope and pray that the time passes quickly. I hope all goes well and good lu ck, A xx

not sure if I want to go to work tomorrow (probably will anyway) as I only got 5 hrs of sleep last night and I see that my old friend (a pulled muscle in my side) is back with a vengeance.

    I have no doubt that going to work in that demoralizing place is hard to do even when you feel 100%.

Basically today seemed like it was going to be the day from hell because my boss and my supervisor went to where our vehicles get disposed of and came back and my boss didn't talk to me but I kind of got it from the supervisor "because" I am not perfect (gee BIG REVELATION you know what YOU SCREW UP at YOUR job sadly I am not allowed to chew YOU out!!) It's like this old guy that I used to work with at CNCP (he worked for Northern Alberta Railways Telecom before NAR was taken over by Canadian National) Ed always used to say whenever we used to gripe about work (NO where nearly as bad as this employer in a lot of respects) - "the s**t flows down but it NEVER goes back up!! Anyways, my buddy tried to make me feel a bit better (Brian knows I am one of the more conscinetious people there) and then Wes comes up to me about an hour later and mumbles "oh I guess I owe you a partial apology - one of the vehicles came from CALGARY" so obviously I DID NOT work on it ergo I should NOT have been gotten S**T for it .

    The half- a$$ apology is lame at best. The mark of a worthless boss. A good boss makes sure what the facts are and then gives constructive criticism where the person learns from their mistakes and can still feel good about themselves. I've been a boss and a good one.

Glad today is tuesday

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

I am very much glad today is over. I realize sometimes I say things that some readers might NOT like especially about my "employer" (one person decided that they were going to basically flame me) > Today I finished working on retiring a truck for a section thats more civilian than most. I had basically finished it yesterday but then my boss decided that he wanted the running boards moved to the new vehicle. They were of course rusted on and it took me the better part of an hour and a half to get them off a lot of the fasteners had to be ground off . The fellow who was building the replacement came back and threw them in the box as they did NOT fit the new vehicle. So much for productivity!! I was also told to take the mudflaps off . Again these had fasteners on them so badly rusted on that the majority of them SNAPPED off after I started to turn them with a wrench. The remainder had to be ground off . I felt like I took a bath in dirt and iron filings. That this had happened really didn't bother me and in fact is not really what I was going to write about although it would have been nice to have known about it yesterday and I might have had it done yesterday but neither my boss nor the supervisor was in just the lead hand.
(actually there isn't much diffenece between the 2 except some semantics and a pay grade ). Well I go and pull out the truck because I finally finished it and pulled in a Toyota I sort of started yesterday outside 15 or so minutes before quitting time as it was nice out and no room inside with the truck (which could not be moved yesterday for reasons I prefer not to get into at this time). Well I go and pull it in and then there was another vehicle to pull in behind me which the supervisor was going to work on because "he is SPECIAL". I had left a few cut off fasteners on the floor as I was NOT given time to sweep up. A little while passes by and I feel something hit me in the leg. I look over and its one of the bolts I had cut off -this person was mad at me and had obviously decided to THROW the bolts at me. Then afterwards he decides to chew me out because one of those bolts could have damaged the tire. First of all I didn't know you were coming in right after me, Second I wasn't given time to clean up, Third the bolts aren't long enough to puncture the tires. Fourth if it was such a big deal why didn't you get off your ass and do it yourself? This guy thinks he can talk to people like dirt and treat them like crap and I am tired of it.(The worst thing about is it that I was NOT raised to stick up for myself and these bastards KNOW IT)
I nearly told him to F--K OFF today.

    I'm not sure of the law where you are but here someone who throws something at someone else while working is liable for disciplinary action and termination. It sounds like they are pretty stupid - trying to salvage rusty junk. It would be nice if you could find somewhere else to work.
