Comments: Stuff that pisses me off...

Okay baby brother. Maybe this will help. Yesterday, I was called into the bossman's office with your supervisor for a meeting. He is not happy with the drillers on this job. They are why you will be going back. After he spoke with the driller's boss, he has expectations that you will be able to complete your end of the job next week. And I hate to say it but the 2 trucks (one unexpected) was either we didn't know or it didn't go through the proverbial vine.
And to help even more, there were many good things said about you in the meeting. The message sent by Ford to the office about an incentive to make you want to stay with the company was relayed. I had to keep my puffed up pride in check until lunch, it was very difficult. So, keep your chin up. Remember,bidness is bidness and that kaka occurs. When you are told you'll be going else where don't raise expectations until it happens and it will help you a lot. (The reneging happens alot in construction due to your supervisor may think one thing but the boss decides otherwise. Guess who always has the final say.) Hope you have a great weekend. I'll talk to ya later.

"When you are told you'll be going else where don't raise expectations until it happens and it will help you a lot"

Reminds me of my Navy days:

"Well be pulling into the Philippines for 2 weeks of fun and relaxation!"

Followed immediately by:

"Whoops. We're actually staying out to sea, instead. Nevermind."

Ah yes, Harv. "Grab your gear, and head to the ramp. We're heading out."

2 hours later: "Stand down." Repeat within 4 hours, for a week long stretch. *Grrrrrr*

Yeah, Johnny-Oh, they're small things, but when they stack up, a person can easily turn into a crab-ass!

Hope the coming week goes a little smoother.

Maybe it will make it easier if you consider your job to be one long remodelling project... you know everything that can go wrong will! That way when something goes right for once you can be suitably impressed and happy. I've had several major remodelling jobs done on a couple of houses we've owned - something ALWAYS goes wrong. And it's usually on a grand scale... no matter how hard you try to make sure it doesn't happen. *grin*
