Still have a fever but I finally got an appetite back..I didnít eat since Tuesday and I had some long sleepless nights where I wished for death my head hurt so bad. Iím lucky to have my fiancť in my life, she nursed me back to health.

This actually might be your issue... Did it have an oversized bucket on it at the mill?
Over running load is hell on cylinders when dumping, most manufacturers recommend installing check orifices to slow the dump down with large buckets on them but dealers rarely do it until there is a failure.

Roger that...

If the bucket truck co operates I can reach the peak of the garage, but lately it does not want to scope out, almost like it hits a pressure switch, then if you can get past the dead spot it works perfectly. But that dead spot is never in the same spot... Just an annoying problem

That tree is getting almost too big to decorate, with out the bucket truck it would be impossible. I am debating if I want to put lights on the roof line. I think it may be too much. Not sure yet. maybe I will.

conwaymuddy Managed to finally get parts of my old snowblower pulled out and in the basement. Need to tear everything down and order replacement parts. Started covering windows with plastic since its supposed to be sub zero this week. Realized I need more plastic, run to the hardware store figuring I had an hour before they close. Nope wrong. Go to grab the hair dryer I only have for shrinking window plastic. Yup, fucker is sitting 35 miles away at my ex-girlfriends house. I'm feeling a wee bit ragey (ragie?), maybe even a bit stabby...

Going to change the oil, maybe fix a couple things and sell it. Or put a super duty 60 in the front with a divorced 205 and repaint it


Go with option B, but do a thread on it for entertainment purposes.

[486] Oh and then spent the rest of the day tearing out shoddy construction from someone turning a '50s attached garage into a total fucking rape shack of an addition

Super excited that it has concrete under it, pissed off that they dumped a shitload of blow in styrofoam in between the floor joists they put in
I'm thinking about using a gallon of acetone to turn the styrofoam into goop rather than the tiny balls that are getting everyfuckingwhere
Yesterday 05:05 PM
[486] nice
did you end up sawzalling the core support like I suggested?

I bought a bobcat
first tractor type shit purchase for me

it needs an engine I think. It runs on 3, but vomits a LOT of oil out the back side and has no coolant in it
also the water pump belt is gone, assuming that caused the rest to happen
5500 delivered for a 773 with 9000 hours, been looking a while and while I probably coulda jewed him down a little more, I really didn't want to have to get my truck out and borrow a trailer to get it home(ish)

Initially they said 4 to 6 weeks to heal then 8 more weeks rehab. I'm hoping to get out of here in 3 weeks. Which will be 5 weeks then rehab at home.

crazydave Just got home from working all weekend. I let my youngest brother have a Ford Expedition that I was going to scrap. It only needed a spark plug insert, but I didn't want to deal with it. Well, he ended up getting the title for it, so I fixed the spark plug and let him have it. A couple months later the rear heater core started leaking. Then the front one started leaking a couple weeks after that, then a week after that it shot another plug out, and he asked me to help him fix it. Pissed me off because I didnt want anything to do with the car in the first place, and hes a broke bitch that sure as hell won't be paying for my time. I do it because if I don't, my parents who are trying to retire will pay someone else.


In the meantime, he's been driving one of my moms vehicles around. I didn't want that happening, so I had to fix the Expedition again. I get into it, and there are unprotected saws, receiver hitches, an air chisel, soldering iron etc. thrown on the seats. The interior of the car is (or was) pretty damn nice.

The ungrateful bastard better take care of it now, because numbnuts left the title in the glovebox.

Its in my safe now.

So Long Flip Phone

Today my Trusted Samsung Flip Phone goes away. I loved that old phone, it took great pictures, I could sit my fat ass on it all day long and not hurt it. It's even easier to text on than this damn S8 that's replacing it. Oh Well, gotta move up sometime.

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.

just make it into a yearly bonus or some shit, getting paid to not be there is just retarded

but I'm still a bit salty over getting fucked out of overtime
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.
