I'm trying to appreciate that I have a job!
“Visited w my bro in-law & sis in-law Thurs nite, they're BOTH foremer hi-flyng professionals, my bro-in was a VP at Intel...now they're both unemployed & have been for a long time withy nothing on the horizon.
My current job absolutely, positively SUCKS, but I'm trying to hard to appreciate the fact that I have one.
So,... I saw free's thread (who "has" to work this weekend) & thought I's out a positive spin on it..
I GET to work this weekend!”
Sorry about all the typos...
“Didn't check before I sent, that'll teach me!”
“Good point, wanderer. We should be thankful.”
“I'm thankful, yet slightly unappreciative.”
“And with the OT I'm earning, I can, like, buy more stuff.”
“I'm not working this weekend - but I am thankful that I will be heading back on Tuesday.”
“Good thoughts there.”
Two things worse than having to work are not having work, and not being able to work.”
“i "get" to work tomorrow....fast food only takes off on Cristmas and Thanksgiving days.....”
“Work just can suck so bad sometimes that I just want to go on a killing spree.
But I think I won't.
Hey I am going to go backpacking for 3 days next weekend becuase I told my boos that I am not digging the overtime and it is pissing me off and I think he got the point.
“lolz mike, say to to killing sprees!
i WISH i got paid OT!”
“Yeah im taking off next weekend to go do some skinny dipping in the sierras. Then the week after im going backpacking :) So all this holiday working will be worth it. I just cant wait that long!!”
“Ok Free can I go backpacking with you on that trip??????
“Thats strange my name has small letters in it?????
“Sure CMB but i'll be doing a lot of fishing that trip too so you better bring your pole :)”
“I upgraded our IBM/Informix/Unidata database this morning.
Unidata 6.0, Go Hogs Go.”
“Did I mention that I am also the ISO Management Representative and that last month my company was Certified to ISO 9001/200O.”
“We are also ISO 9000 & 9001.
I wish I had your personality, cmb
“You win, I am #&%!$:-(”
“Accrediting anyone these days, I see. :)”
But our company is now ready for the high voltage market as well as all traction motor work.
CMB, Is it just me?
“My business is experiencing a record year.
Not a good year, a record year.”
“No its not we too have also have had a good year.
Traction Motor work has been up about 50%.
Stator Coil work has been up about 20%.
All DC Motor & Field coils and interpole work has been up about 50% also.
I think we have about $300.000 on the books right now for Norfork Southern R.R alone for this month alone.
“and they say the economy sucks!”
“Its all in the head!Just depends what work you are in.If we had a much hotter summer and more motors had broke down I could see me working many more weekends then I have.
I Bet no one
“had as much fun at work as I did this weekend! I got to work on the cardiology floor taking care of heart surgery patients which I liked for 2 nights. Then ta-Da! Last night I got to work in the IMCN or neonatal nursery. I had four babies to hold and take care of! 2 preemies and all of them baby boys. I was asked to come back to work there again which I surely will. I'd sit and rock them and spoil them silly. They were good babies for me. I was told they had been problem children til last night. All men just want to get snuggled up and held and spoiled. Ya just got to know how to put the whammy on them.”
“Hmmmmmm, whammy %^]”
“This is reminding me of the first stanza of "Fat Bottom Girls"....lol....”
“Is that like the Mammy Yokum Whammy or the B-52s Whammy?”
