trials of a troll trying to get by in a world messed up by humankind [ I'M AT UTC -5]

First day this whole week that I actually got out of work “on time”…tomorrow promises to be not a typical Saturday in and out…I wish it was or could be but I know it isn’t…

A weird day, on one hand the new vendor we are using for the transfer is absolutely reliable…on the other hand he managed to cut a pull out too tight and ripped the one door off of one of my trailers today…A-hat…but I problem for Monday…had more problems today then I could deal with…(note: I’m way too old and too ingrained in old school to call problems issues…. magazines have issues…the Old Testament tells me woman had issues of blood…I just have problems…major, minor and those in between…)

Nite all

Why is it that although I deserve an easy day at work I never seem to get one when I need one…and tomorrow could become a real monster…I have not gotten out of work but late any day this week and with what should happen tomorrow…looks like much of the same…

But a reasonable, gentle night

The Latino tribe on survivor made what I consider to be a huge mistake tonight…that they voted of they weakest link was not a mistake…that the threw a challenge to do so…that was a huge mistake…

As with the vote of the Afro-American tribe last week they are now 3 ladies and one man, socially maybe an asset…but challenge wise…????????

We have a new phone system at work…I now have voice mail if I’m not at my desk when the phone rings…h*ll I am virtually never at my desk when the phone rings…and it seems like when I call back, they (those who left the phone message aren’t there for the call back). I may be the best “phone tag” player in the world…

I have had a very difficulty day…my arthritis has been driving me nuts...hands have been very tend and too much keyboard time hasn’t helped…whether it is the wet, damp fall weather…or the stress and physical exertion of work…who cares…I got an issue…h*ll I’ve got a problem that is driving me nuts…pain level is way past the background level I’ve dealt with for over 40 years and over the counter pain killers are not dealing with it at all…(/rant)

Nite all

This was not a good day, work wise this has not been a good week…I’ve been forced to stay over everyday this week for one reason or another…I accept the fact of a few hours OT on Saturday and even Sunday…but over time during the week drives me nuts…especial today when the need for it was because the need resulted from a problem which was well…’nough said…I need to work way passed the normal hours this Saturday as I have year end things that need to be attended to…so I’m looking at a 50+ hour week…too old to tolerate even the thought of that…and have spent way to much time with my butt in the seat of a forklift this week so physically feel like I’ve already worked part of 17 days in a row…which I guess I have…

(/rant)

Very strange day…physically exhausted and mentally still trucking…absurd…

Night all

A brief but very frustrating day at work, but first I stopped at Mickey-D’s for coffee and a sandwich at about a quarter after 6 and had to wait…my guess is that at that time I was first one there customer wise, got to work only to discover that the online ERP system was down, and also production needed supplies from the warehouse and the pickup is in the shop, well got the supplies back without too much problem, but when I left at just before 8 AM the website we need to access to get to are ERP software was still off line…nuts…

But has been a reasonable, gentle day since then…although I really didn’t tumble to the fact that I had no bottle of water up on the platform during worship team, and really could have used a swig…voice was a bit “rusty” today and did struggle a bit…but despite that…or maybe even because of that…everything went well…particularly during second service…
