you asking @Duck for that? god dammit man, that'll be at the very least a 46 month project, or don't you follow his building projects?
I can't even go there cause if ya seen my videos I was gonna paint my windows since my folks left me the house..

Dad's been dead almost nearly a decade still ain't got to it yet..

Some of its Trucking ..

Much of its just "Laziness"..

The rest is I live on the outskirts and the Town ain't so "Picky" though I finally hadda cover my expsed TYVEK and Side It

The TYVEK was $aving me almost $500 per year in "Property Tax Value" until they got on my @$$....

Whose a "Special" Case now..

But Crappy peeling windows "okay" around here I guess.

around here, unless there is a building permit posted in the front window, i couldn't leave tyvek exposed for too long.

and you're special cuz you';re our Birch....no one else can be you, you are one of a kind, and we love you for it...

I like how as usual they brought up the drivers not getting paid to set at the dock then claim that’s not the problem.

Half of the Many "Countless" Jobs I've had...

Hadda write Time In on the bills even CALL IN to Dispatch.. before Quallcomm Tracking..

Still hadda get the CUSTOMER to "SIGN" or No "Layover" Pay...

Sure I could spend HOURS "arguing" though 3 outta 4 hadda another load and "TIRED" too so I lost $50)$75 bucks and moved on

Management is going to treat you like yer just company pukes.

As a process engineer my job was to eliminate "waste".

More times than not, it came to the biggest cost savings, was to always get rid of the human element.

Failure to follow procedure leading to machine or chemical failures resulting in scrape product.

Past couple weeks been talking to different supers unloading/loading the truck.

Cheap wages and lazy workers. Biggest reason the can't keep or get employees.

Trucking doesn't have a corner on the market.

Be interesting to see what will happen when society just gives up.

It's so close right now

Society gave up a long time ago. We're all on a toboggan ride to the bottom now.

Plenty of people want to get off but are prevented from doing so by the stupidity of others who are blocking the exits.
