I'm Back..... Sorta.
I'm back. Actually fixing the computer wasn't all that hard and I had it up and running again late Wednesday evening. What hit me like a ton of bricks was a little incident from a week ago where one of my co-workers is now attempting to play some games thinking he could hit the ghetto lottery. I am not going to go into a great amount of detail but suffice it to say my full time position equivalent is attempting to claim a serious injury where one just doesn't exist. He thought he was going to get some light duty and hang out in the office chatting with the girls all day, with maybe the opportunity of a lucrative lawsuit and instead got sent home since his light duty restrictions meant they had nothing for him to do.
He is biting nails now finding out workers comp only pays 66% and doesn't include the lost overtime he manages to sneak in each week either, or that the company isn't going to supply him with a lawyer to file a lawsuit. Yet he can't back out of it now and so it falls to me to pick up the slack time.
Sooo I been working 12 hour shifts the last two days.
It just never seems to fail that I find a job that seems to work great at first and then after a short amount of time snowballs into a primary living space making my home the real part time job. I am sure I am not alone here. You all know what I am talking about.
Means more spare change to put towards fence stuff though I guess.
Anyway it's been raining almost non-stop the last couple of days so I couldn't have gotten any progress done regardless.
I am now starting to worry about a repeat of the barberpole worm epidemic we had during the monsoon rains last year.
So there is my status update. I will get back to posting again as soon as this blows over. AT the very least I will get two days off for the holiday weekend anyway.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
