Bees!

I knew I shouldn’t have pissed off Oprah

That thing hanging down isn’t the headliner or a bee’s nest, it’s a swarm of bees

They flew up and dove right into the car.

 

Sonomagun.

In better times, it looks like this

Thanks to hey for locating the picture.

So what have I been doing? After school I went through 3 jobs that sucked. One that was 12 hour shifts running a gigantic mill. It was a sweat shop, no sitting or leaning. 4 12-hour days followed by 4 days off. I couldn’t sleep and didn’t like working on a few hours sleep. Then, I went to a wood router place, 10 hour days. Nother sweat shop deal, just constantly putting parts in and taking them out. There were two tables and each one was done before I got the other one loaded. Pass.

I went to a call center place, people calling Verizon to get their phone turned back on. I almost made it through training and got some virus that had me coughing like made for a week. I never went back.

Now, I’m working at a nice CNC shop. Loading parts, running the machine and also doing inspection to make sure the parts are to spec. I’ll be doing just inspection sometime during the summer. I work 3 to 12:30 and I’m still trying to figure out my schedule. I’m planning on tubing at night when I get home, maybe I’ll do some more posts.

They have a bunch of machines, mostly HAAS, but two sitting next to each other cracked me up.

Wall E!

Eeeeee Va!

A school story. I met a Marine snowflake. Seriously, I didn’t think it was possible. He just kept whining at me and screwing with me and then complaining to the instructors about me.

In the last incident I was using one of 4 depth gauges while using a grinder. The tolerance was .0005 inches (five ten thousandths, or ‘tenths’) so I would make a couple passes and check with the depth gauge. So the guy came over and asked if he could use the depth gauge, I told him I needed it so grab one of the others. He took it anyway. So when I needed it I went to get it back from him and he started giving me shit.
“You’re affecting my ability to do my work!” he said.

“Yeah, and you’re doing that to me. Why don’t you get another gauge and let me use the one I had?”

So he had called me names, dick, insufferable boor, and more, so I finally got sick of it and said, “You whiny little bitch, just give me the fucking gauge.” He started yelling, which got the instructors involved.

Sigh.

I had to fill out a form about the problem. I basically wrote that we had a problem but it was over and we should just leave each other alone. Apparently, his was a little different.

So we had a meeting with the instructors where I said I had no problem and he said I should be kicked out because I was bullying him. Now, I’m in my 50s and gained  a bunch of weight not working for a year, he’s in his late 20s or early 30s, in shape and a fucking retired Marine sergeant. And I was bullying him.

So we both signed something that said it was over.

A week later, I found out it wasn’t over. He had taken it to the next level. I had rewrite my form because I looked guilty because I didn’t have a problem. So another meeting. Again, I thought it was over. Then I found out he had taken it to the dean and was still trying to get me kicked out.  For bullying.

It was still going on when the class ended. The last 2 months were fucking stressful as I was crybullied by a fucking retired Marine sergeant.

I’d tube but really, it’s all the same shit. I did see a press conference by Dems about Obamacare about how the lawsuit against it was going to Take Healthcare Away From Americans!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t realize they were still spewing those blatant, idiotic lies.

About the only new things are that China is sending troops to Venezuela.

I’m still not sure whose side they’ll be on. They want the Panama canal and Vladivostok area, they could try to ally with us to get us to cede them the canal and ignore Vladivostok, or they could demand concessions from Russia for same.

Should be interesting. Like, global war interesting. As the Dems are screeching about whatever idiocy they’re screeching about that day and the GOP is busy Doing The People’s Business!!!!!!!!!!

We be boned.

Have fun!

    Hey, man, good to see you back. Hope that things are working out now for you – well, except for the bees, that is.

    Sweet, sweet vehicle. I even love the colors. So did the bees, apparently.

    Seriously, if you’re going around intimidating retired Marine sergeants, you could be a secret weapon; we ought to drop you on China or something.

    RE: the tubing–ain’t it the truth?

    Totally enjoy the slice of life post, too. The Caballero looks great (bee swarm notwithstanding) and I’m glad to hear that you’ve found a decent employer. It still blows my mind how some places can get away with treating their skilled machinists like dirt while others are busting their asses just to get a hold of good machinists.

    And fuck that Marine snowflake. Sideways. 😉

    Thanks Neon…. Mr. Madman. Things are definitely looking up. I have a decent job. I’m going to move to days prolly in August so my commute home will suck, but I’ll make probably a third more when I do so I’ll take it.

    For now I work 3-12:30 so I don’t even need an alarm clock. That’s awesome.
