Shanghai Part 2 Shanghai Part 2

A few months ago I posted about a position in Shanghai with my company that I was making a run at. Well, it evaporated. It would have been a promotion. It has come back, but moved down a notch to my pay grade. I’m going to give it a shot. It’s a bit of a bummer that the immidate step up is gone, but I’m still game to…

A Change Of Pace A Change Of Pace

Well, used to hauling Amazon and other basic stuff. Last night I hauled this:

More Work Stuff More Work Stuff

Some of the last I’m sure. I’m glad.

The 2019 Honda Insights have arrived at work. AMA

I work for a Honda dealer and we basically got our first shipment of Insights. I’ve sat in all 3 trims and drove an EX model for about 10 minutes. If I wasn’t so adamant about getting a stick shift, I would’ve either waited for this or got the Clarity (I like the way it looks *dons flame suit*). What would you like to…

Mechanical Difficulties Mechanical Difficulties

I just got back from an adrenaline filled experience. I found out 45 minutes before a deadline that FedEx had failed to deliver a very important submittal due to “mechanical difficulties.” So me and my colleagues had to go into emergency mode to re-create the submittal in-house. Did I make it?

An Oppertunity for an Oppertunity An Oppertunity for an Oppertunity

I posted the other day that I’m thinking about doing something else within my company. A position was just posted for a two year gig in Shanghai. It would be a huge change from what I’m doing now, but I think I’m going to put in for it. The wife isn’t against the idea and it would be an interesting experience for…

Contemplations Of The Career Variety Contemplations Of The Career Variety

I have worked in the engineering and maintenance world of our small Atlanta based people moving enterprise for what qualifies as “a long time”. I am starting to contemplate making a change.

Today’s not gone well 

Woke up at 4.30 am

Back at this place again.  Back at this place again. 

Que the rage inducing anti-aesthetics. I do feel bad for this construction company though. They didn’t design it and have had problems the whole project, like building on a hill and after a hard rain a section of the building went down the hill and got scapped off the plans. All this new stuff and it’s all built from…

When your tags are expired but you want to ride to work When your tags are expired but you want to ride to work

I have a lot to to today after work. Going to check out a set of tires for equinox, 18’s

desperate times call for desperate measures desperate times call for desperate measures

Today in Dano drives. Nissan 60 fork lift, with rotating forks.  Today in Dano drives. Nissan 60 fork lift, with rotating forks. 

Dumping bins into metal & trash. The lull is for lifting out of lower area. It’s also drizzling, yay

27 cars for the next 3 days means chase cars must be packed in tight.

Communication Breakdown  Communication Breakdown 

Coworker didn’t get a text telling him to pick up a truck. So he went to job site he was at Friday. I’m an hour away from our shop, and we did all we could do without ladders. LOL. Monday.

On the job yesterday .  On the job yesterday . 

Working at a library with a parking area under the building. I noticed how many pillars were scratched and scuffed up and the side walls were backed into and busted up.

I rigged up some plumbing at work today.  I rigged up some plumbing at work today. 

This is as good as it gets from a laborer. And it didn’t leak.... yet. Steel to PVC to Cast Iron with rubber boots in between.

Stupid Business Plans Stupid Business Plans

I am ticked to be at work today. It is Black Friday/ the Friday after a holiday and I work at a dealership. This means there will be very very few customers, no wholsale because all the shops in town are closed, few deliveries because trucking companies aren’t running, and there will be no over the counter sales…

Don't ya just love it when you're stuck at work...

Because other people can’t make up their damn minds until after hours, and then scatter to the four winds while you process the implications of their changes?

It is important to have the right tool for the job. It is important to have the right tool for the job.

Perhaps I should have brought the old F150 to UPS today.
