ANOTHER DAY


THIS IS ABOUT HOW MY DAY IS GOING

its only just past twelve noon and I've put over two hundred miles on my truck chasing parts this morning. dropping parts off and getting custom built hoses for a welder who doesn't appreciate the work i do... fuck him right? anyway, I've got another helper today and need to keep him busy now that I'm back. lucky me right?

we failed an OSHA inspection and everyone was looking at me...

"when did they come? how did we fail???" i said
"they failed us cause all the oil spilled around here." boss man said.
"that's my fault how?"
"well you are the mechanic..."
"what, you don't know how to clean up your own oily messes?!"
"its YOUR job!"
"did i know the inspector was coming?"
"no, you didn't. that's my fault."
"did we fail last year? or any other year in the last eleven?"
"no, you haven't. you have always cleaned up the yard and had everything in order... look, i see where you are going with th---"
"was i even at work that day?"
"no, but lisTEN TO M---"
"so, i wasn't here.... didn't know he was coming... YOU didn't clean up the yard and WE failed... again, its my fault how?!?! don't push your mistake on me okay."

people cringed and snuck out in all directions..

i meander back out into the yard to have a cigarette. that argument went better than casual sex after a night of drinking in Vegas...

God damn the man being a dick again. I think your argument probably lasted longer than me the last time I had casual sex.

Some people just can't accept their own fuck ups and got to try and pass it down the line but you greased him good.

that guy said...

You should work for the gub'ment, where nobody does anything, and can therefore never get blamed for anything. You think I'm kidding? Oh, good...so you know.

Do you want the truth? Or every one to kiss your ass? No, the truth is never pretty. Hey, I landed on a f****** Pontiac when I took that slide. And no, it wasn't pretty. Do you want the truth? Then be willing to take it. When you're ready, I'm right here. Everyone else will give you puff and agree with YOU. I'll give you the truth. Just for starters. You don't leave oil to drain into the watershed. Rule #1.

I suppose it's a good thing your boss likes you. He does like you, Right? I hope you have a better Thursday.

I'm kinda proud of you for having the balls to stand up to this fuck, and tell him straight "I aint taking your shit!"

Well done pal.

Suzanne said...

No one else knows that, but I know you know that. OSHA did their job. Very, very well. Fix your mistake. That simple. And no honey, I will never be like all the rest. Trust me.

You don't mess with OSHA. Just like you don't mess with the FDIC, who surprised us here at my office once.

We had to pay some hefty fines that day.

Leah said...

MJ said...
