Dude, don't mess with the man's dream. Especially one that is very cool, and attainable. I would like the same type of shop/home, but with a taller roof so I could fit the RV inside. Would like the master to be bigger, so maybe a 40x100 shop.

You just need one of those curtains to pull across the "clean" areas when grinding/welding/plasmafucking things.

Fucking POS beater car is driving me nuts. Efan wouldn't come on last week. Threw a new connector on it and it turned on for a second then quit. Put a new relay in this box thing all the gay zx2 forums talk about. Didn't fix it. Threw a new fan on and it turned on for a few seconds then quit.

Got fed up and hard wired it to a switch with a relay. Worked fine until I went for a test drive and didn't turn on. WTF?! Can hear the relay clicking but nothing. Have to dig into it more tomorrow. Grr

Pretty much describes my shop. Only I have a house blocking my view of the street. If the house burned down, I'd go restock my shop work clothes at Walmart and move into my RV in the shop.
Course the wife would go nuts. But whatever!

Anything happens to her I'll rent out the house!

Can you formulate that into a cohesive thought? Maybe add detail to what car (make model year) and the issue. Then maybe people can help.

I've never wanted someone fired and thrown out on the street for being incompetent, until today.

One of the companies I work with has a complete idiot, and I'm clueless to his purpose in life. He use to be on the team for fleet vehicles. He bought a bunch of junk 6.0s and 5.4s because hurr durr Ford. I got a lot of pushback for vehicles I was buying (he still had a say so in the beginning), that was quickly resolved.

In the past couple years he's been reduced to being my title/registration bitch. Today I recieved word he lost a title to a recently purchased vehicle, the only recourse is for me to pay Oklahoma (btw, most helpful dmv ever) fees and such for a lost tile.

After a few phone calls, he's no longer allowed to even look at a vehicle or paperwork. Every employee I talk to within the company has a nickname/insult for him. I have no idea why he is still employed.

Think the new fan was shit. Jumpered it directly to the battery and nothing. Hooked the old one up to my new wiring and it's working so far. Probably won't get to try it out for good till Wednesday though.

What in the ever loving fuck pirate? Log in to the forum, click on sub forum and I'm logged out. Log back in, open thread, logged back out. 3 fucking days of this bullshit. I thought it was my internet connection but this is the only place it happens, ever. If vertical scope offices start mysteriously burning to the ground I've got an alibi.

He's one of the "supervisors" buddies, whom is just as worthless in my eyes. The type where they put his office in another building, away from everyone else, because no one wants to actually deal with him.

We fuel 2 boats a day during our work day. Each boat has 2 tanks. Each boat has a 2800(I think) gallon capacity.
Found out today that I will be getting a work phone(smartphone) so now I get to carry 2 around
And I get 5 days off starting Friday. Started this week Monday so M-Th this week and then starting my regular shift next week which is W-Sat.

I feel your pain. Before the continued log outs I kept getting stuck on that shit. Even requesting the desktop site through my browser would give me mobile.

Just regular diesel as far as I know. Each boat has a generator in each of the engine rooms too. Catamaran so 2 engines morning top off was 850 gallons in each tank.

What about those square tanks with cages around them that I see people hauling water and waste oil in?
