Well, this is fun ... not

Found out that my senior tech has all of next week of as vacation.

Damn I play hell just getting two days off happy for him, but it sure sucks to be me.

Why, because it all boils down to me being the only "fully qualified" for infrastructure installations person. Sorry the other two show no interest and do not remember from one day to the next what the end result is to look like ... so annoying .... and I wind up having to inspect and validate the install if I send them out on their own.

I swear and with a hiring freeze still in place I will never get anyone on board to be another infrastructure installer.

My work life sucks ... ah well, better then unemployed.

Why am I feeling annoyed, oh we have to get the newest hospital ED ready for opening on Monday the 6th.

Well, this is rubbish since I have been getting all of these other projects that must get to a certain place by end of the second quarter that I am at the point of wondering why I did not take that early retirement and let them all sink ... as I damn well know they would not be able to swim, if I was not driving the projects.

Bunch of frelling cocksuckers. Or jackasses depending on your point of view.

Today just proved the point more then normal and I am obviously upset by the utter disregard shown to the workers.

Where is my :sake:

Good night

I sure hope your work is as high paying as I think it is.   So that said, yes, at least you ARE employed and getting hours in right now.   Lots of folks still ain't.   Sooo grin n bear it?  SAKE to me Sake to me Sake to me!   Yeah you remember Rowan & Martin's Laugh In, doncha ??  Heh!

It is not as high paying as I think it should be considering all the different line items of responsibility that I take care of, when I first started, there were three infrastructure installers. Two got promoted to system tech and were never replaced as installation tech, and now I am it. There are two other guys but as yo can guess from my trash talk they only are there for a paycheck, doing mobile installs. Getting them to do infrastructure and do it right is like ... :ummm: don't really have a good analogy this morning. I can barely get them to do basic clean up of the bay after they do a mobile install.

:sigh: I better stop now, as it is going to be a long day and if I get cranky now, it will just make it a miserable day completely for me and that I don't need.

Well, it certainly did go to the "handbasket trip" this day.

I will tell more later right now I am still mean, irritable, cranky and bad tempered and I am only on the second flask Of :sake:

One thing I can say, for multi-million dollar companies the powers that be do not learn from the past. Why? The difficulties I am encountering today have been present in the past.
Yet, we keep having to solve for the same thing every time.

"WHY"

All I can tell J, it's as soon as you can take your retirement, and you wish to be retired, don't hesitate.
Looking how TL and Rods are busy since they are retired, you won't be bored too soon.

But it's not your business what will happen to the company once you will go. You do what you have to do for your job, but you aren't the decider for the good or the bad of the company. If they want to stay on the bad side of the slope :shrug:

Well, that would be nice to have some time to myself, but I do not see it any time soon since ye ole leprechaun decided to send a text message with a phone number only and no explanation.

I replied with a ? and boy did that open a can of worms ... I am so pissed off at them all that I once again could (can) spit 16 penny nails through a 2x4 ...

I have to go to Fagler (deliberate misspelling) next week to re-punch down the alarm points because they are not in the right spots.

Well, as I am fond of saying, I did it according to the list I was given ... so blow me .... give me bad information, you get what the instruction stated.

Not my problem, totally sucks that I have to go back to that abomination of a site
