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.
