ugh fuck all this I think I'm gonna see what the jobs are like north of here
Yea, I get mailed my stub every two weeks. Like the fuck I know my hours from those weeks. Hell half the time I don't even know what states I was in for that time.

I have caught multiple mess ups on the pay check in the past 4 pay checks (they fix them, but if I miss them I am beat) So now I keep track of my own hours and compare them every two weeks.

Like two pay checks ago I only had 67 hrs of straight time, HR 'didn't' see my email with my hours I sent in while traveling- despite my email two days before telling her I would send them to her. So I got shorted $$ big time, considering there was 20+ hrs of OT in there. Next pay check they payed me 95 hrs of straight time, should be 93 hrs and the rest OT... end of the day it is only $XX but still it adds up.

It is just annoying. Don't fuck with my money any more than you already do by grossly underpaying me. Or put me back on Salary and we won't worry about it.

took a monday off, then they asked me to do some overtime later in the week
I ask when the pay period work week is split, as it used to be thursday night so that if you took a week off it'd screw you out of for two weeks' overtime
manager says oh yeah pay period's split monday night.
Well okay that's neat, so I will actually get paid for this overtime, they confirm
proceed to put in five 13 hour days (minus some amount of time during lunch, so 42hr in 4 days)
only get 2hr overtime
ask for explanation on when the work week splits, again
"yeah man, monday night" *points at sunday night, monday morning on the calandar*
Huh, wow, okay. Fuck me, right?

I get 3 weeks (120 hrs) vacation and 1 week (40 hr) PTO a year. We can roll over PTO (to some #) or get paid out on it, vacation time is tech use it or loose it. This morning I had 36 hrs vacation and 32 hrs PTO remaining for the year. I spoke to my boss and he said fuck it take it all if you want. Had to get approval from the owner to use this years time into next year, but I am off starting the 20th of Dec, until the 13th of Jan using my time and 2.5 days from next years time. (have 4 holiday days in there Dec 24-26 and Jan 1)

As far as OT they will always find an out. Our policy is no OT until 40 hrs for the week, not that uncommon- but they automatically take out 30 min a day for lunch. So for me often times I can not or no not take one, but loose that time no matter what.

Also if I work 13 hrs on Monday, it is all straight time, not 8 straight and 5 OT, so if something comes up and I have to take a day mid week I loose all OT for the week until I have 40 straight time.

With the amount I travel it semi pans out as I get $50/day for being off site, $100 after 7 continuous days. I just got 3 checks for my past travel times and it is almost equivalent to two weeks pay.

I am waiting for them to come back and tell me I cant take off 3 weeks in a row, that is going to be a fun conversation.

I got one Land Rover friend from Wise County who comes into town to see me and that's pretty much it.

Fuck you guys I'll just build my own and it will probably cost more and look 1/2 as good


Meh, if you are going to paint it, I bet you can make it look just as good and it will be better built. My wife found one she wanted on Pinterest or something like that. Loweís sold it, but it was around $300, and it was made out of press board. I ended up building a similar looking one, that it way more heavy duty for about 1/3 of the price.

Looks like my new Winter Project. Rebuild me rather than the ones in my shop.

Worst part, is because of my birth age, I'm treated like I can't do anything.
But, I am not your average old guy. I'm a 68 year old with a mind and body of a 48 year old.
I've taken care of myself all my life and have lived a very healthy liestyle.
Hell, I had Kidney cancer in 2017 and I went from diagnosed to cured in 6 weeks.
Literally 6 WEEKS!
I just can't bounce well onto concrete from a 30 foot fall.
And my fall was because of safety equiment failure, not age related.
I am a retired Power Lineman, so I'm not your average retired desk jockey.

well fuck, i hope you get well soon.

We earn PTO as we work and 80 is the rollover limit. Any additional PTO over 80 is paid out to us at the end of the year.

Giving a set limit is dumb.

eh, propane tanks are relief valved at 300 psi iirc, so your compressor would probably stall before getting there, much less the actual burst pressure

Never timed them. I do have meters on them so it would be stupid simple. Iím usually greasing shit when Iím fueling up as not to waste time. I live in Wisconsin so I only have 7 maybe 8 months of the year to make the easy money. The other 4 months is nothing but a ride on the struggle bus.

The best transfer fuel pumps were the old gas boys. Thatís the one where I got over 100,000 gallons pumped with it. Then fillrite bought them out and everything seems to have went to shit. Now Iím lucky to get 20,000 gallons pumped before they shit the bed.

Man, you've put $90k through that filler neck, and won't afford the half hour or so of labor for me to toss in the ranger bench that I've been using at home as a couch? I don't even want money for the seat itself
I'd have just done it for free. Customer for life after that.

That's where you put a regulator (followed by a pressure relief blowoff valve) between the compressor and the tanks, then you are good until the regulator fails and you get shocked at 6AM when the pressure relief valve starts screaming
