My dad preached that line over and over to me as a kid, it's a shame he's not around to tell him how wise and right he was. Nice to see others were taught the same ethic!

Hearing all these stories helps me deal with the stress of dairy farming. I may be tied down a lot, but there's a LOT that I don't have to deal with too!

When I saw that Olcowhand had replied, I wondered who he was gonna say it was... :bigrofl:

We have one guy at work who's wife is on SSI on a mental instability claim. She's no more nuts than my wife.
Every time they get the check in the mail, he's "sick" for a week. Really sets us all on edge when he pulls that crap.

Thanksgiving week he was off Sat, Sun, called off M, T, W, off Thursday but was back for Friday so he'd get his Holiday Pay and the Direct Deposit wouldnt skip a week. Grrrrr.

I had a worthless S.O.B. for a supervisor or something like that 10 years ago and thought he would be cute about the lies he made up to the boss . Lucky for me I caught on real soon , the other guys had a real hard time . His sorry rear end was canned in due time and after 37 yrs at same place wonder if it was worth it all -- it is to me . Sort of explains the quirks in my humor for those who detect it. Merry Christmas to all if subject doesn't come up again soon . Edit: This *** did try my soul and I must have passed the test.

During the 38 years I was a union sheet metal worker I was a foreman for 11 years and a superintendent for 21 years. I never had a problem getting rid of people like that. It doesn't matter if you're union or open shop, people like that will kill production and pull everyone down with them. A good foreman should pick up on that and solve the problem. Just my .02

Well said :thumbs:


very well said I will add... sounds like what I heard growing up also. your the judge if you don't hold yourself to your standards who will? problem is some people can look in the mirror and not see a problem despite it. for those that cant live with it congratulate your parents for raising you right.

Thanks guys, and I am one that CAN look in the mirror and feel very good. There is not a single other machinist or any tradesman for that matter , there that can do what I can. So as far as doing the job, its easy peasy, its the other knuckle head that makes everyone feel bad, . Missery loves company , I wish the others could see this too, then he might just shut up and do what little he can do.
Well it will all come out in the end, as he hates change, and I know for a fact , that we are in for some HUGE CHANGES and I love it, hheck I'm one of the key players . Keep it on the "full" side :thumbs: thanks guys

Just an update; funny how things work, the zero shows up this am crying about his weekend , how it cost thousands of dollars, seems his sewer backed up and he got Roto-Rooted lol literally , and to add more, the rooter guy called the gas company and they turned off his gas because they found leaks,(this probably saved his families lives but he doesn't think that way) so not only did he get roto-rooted , he has to get a licenced plumber to fix his gas leaks.
At least he has something to whine about... And his job title is maintance machinist, LOL, he can barely change a lightbulb , and has gotten away with this for 21 years.... Thanks union.... No wonder America is in the shape its in........
