What a work day, we are on production shutdown this week, so only the maintenance guys and I are working of the “floor”…so they schedule a total hand loaded 20' container for today…312 rolls all handed loaded and the majority around 90 Lbs. per…you got to be kidding…they fortunate ask the mad-beast to come in today and he agreed…but still took us over 3 hours to do…dang…

This is a post of some importance…not the content to be sure…most of the content in this blog frankly isn’t…content that is but I’ve been maintaining this slag heap for almost 3 and a half years now and this is the 2000TH post…dang…who would ever believed I could come up with this much crap…

Worst night's sleep I’ve had in ages…felt out of it on every level today but some how got through the day…and tomorrow promises to be a bear…but I’m not tired right now…the physical condition can be a fickle mistress at times…dang

I regretfully admit that I’m a reality TV junky…I both love and hate Survivor…I love it but I hate that the strongest player rarely wins…besides Survivor I love the performance based reality shows…Big Break on the Golf Channel…Top Chef and Project Runway on Bravo…and King Of Vegas on Spike…pathetic I know but what the h*ll

I got the car back today…but I am very annoyed with the manufacturer… I have a 5 year…50000 mile bumper to bumper warrantee…and they refused to cover the repair…they say I over filled the gas tank…which I didn’t…it’s not really about the money…(hell yes I hated to spend it)…but it’s about the dang principle…I said to the service dude that I was really going to be pissed if 6 months down the road there was a recall for the problem I just paid for…not to worry…said he…but if that happened they would retro the problem and refund me…sorry but I don’t believe that…I know I’m not going to terribly affect the manufacturer’s bottom line but that’s the last d*mn car of that make I buy…and the family has bought four in the last 10 years…won’t leave the dealership…after five cars in 15 years this is the first problem and I honestly think they did the best they could to get it covered…

The day ran fairly well and I feel decent tonight but the warrantee thing does rankle…

Work was fairly busy today, got almost everything done…was good news bad news day…car will be ready tomorrow but the work and parts was not covered by the warrantee…so I’ve got a rather nasty repair bill to pay…but at least I get my wheels back…I called trying to get a ride to practice but some how the food fell of the fork and it never came…have spent a gentle night

Nite all

Yesterday was a wasted day, didn’t feel good, car was in the shop…no post

Well today might be another day but car is still in the shop, apparently they are having a problem figuring out why my car is leaking gas…I really hope they come up with something soon because this is starting to wear on me……..
