it never ends

its Tuesday and feels good. so busy at work. there is some drama here lately and people are all edgy and panty wedged about it. today I'm trying to get out of the office to go to town and get some personal shit handled on the company dime... problem is I've now put myself in this struggle of individual power between two dudes.
one dude has been taking a company truck home and isn't supposed to. he leaves his car in town somewhere and drives the company truck home. at first it was a...
"well i worked late that day and had to drive it home."
now its... "well, I've been doing it for two weeks now, i don't see what the problem is."
so management has asked/told him to stop doing it. seems though, the guy is always ahem, working late when he needs to be getting a ride home to get his personal car.
so... i suggested that he deliver a truck to town that needs to go in for warranty work later this afternoon. then i could pick him up at the end of my "town run" and bring him to his car. then he would be stuck in town without a company truck to drive. perfect right? meh....
dude who has been driving the truck sees where this ploy is going and refuses to be a part of it. surprised? so now boss man is going over to dudes job to finish it for him so there will be no hanging out late for company truck driving homing... but dude somehow found out it was my idea and now i have to spend thirty minutes driving around after work with him... sweet eh?
all this so i can go to town and meet a friend who can get me a mega discount at the store she works at. normally id say fuck it and do it on my own time and just pay the full amount for the shit.. but i need several hundred dollars worth of this "shit" and with a fifty percent discount, its hard to pass up...
is a couple hundred dollars worth the pain of sitting in my truck with some pissed off dude who has no right to be pissed off... sure is!!!
have a great day y'all!!!

Sounds like your getting some good shit at a good discount...you can't pass that up. And the truck dude sounds like a mooch.

I hear ya on the power struggle thing. Try playing referee/parent between two employees that hate each other but have worked in the same place for over 10 years.

Yeah, if I had known that came along with the job I wouldn't have moved. The on-site interview for a new job is a lot like dating... both sides put on their best faces until the marriage. Little did I know my "date" would end up bitching all the time, farting at the dinner table, and spitting on the living room carpet.

Give them all atomic wedgies.

Walker said...

Damn right its worth it and so is giving him a back hand across the mouth for bitching if he pisses you off.
This is why I voted for ejection seat on the passenger side of the car.

BEAST said...

the 50% discount is def worth half an hour of moaning truck dude

INNER VOICES said...

that guy... we are going to the shooting range this sunday if you wanted to try and shoot your foot again...

random... yeah, it worked out REALLY FUCKING GOOD!!!

just bob... yeah man... yeah... farting at the dinner table, who does thats? squeezes back vacuous air...

mj, *preps for wedgie-motion* great idea eh?

walker... back hand atcha!!! hahaha... he ended up not wanting to ride with me and got a ride home instead... what a wuss.
