When everything you touch TURNS into CRAP.

 

 

Today I worked on Gravely 16g and I left the guys house with it in parts because I ordered the wrong *&%$*# piece for it.

 

 

Then I get home to work on my Cub Cadet. I've been waiting for these parts for a week. I ordered a crankcase gasket. I go to put it on and rip the *&$*$#*%(^&$ crankcase seal. I seen I did that and laid the piece down hard and broke the oil pick up tube....I'm to the point the only thing I can do is laugh.

 

 

 

What a day...What a day..

I had a day like that on Monday.  It started when I flushed the toilet & heard the sink gurgle.  Spent half the day with my head in the septic tank shoving 50 feet of garden hose up the pipe towards the house to wash out a blockage.  Nothing seemed to go right.  Crappy day.  Less expensive than yours, but crappy nonetheless.

Yep, today.

 

I was getting ready for work... the Big ones were gone to school, the little one was still napping... I thought the wife wanted me to "be a few minutes late for work"... I was wrong.

 

I get to work, still feeling rejected and see the following on my computer screen.

"Sata drive 0 not found" 

which is accompanied by the hard drive rhythmically going "Snick, Snick, Snick, Snick, Snick, Snick"  

It's junk.  as is all my stuff.  Sigh... backup was a while ago. 

 

On my voicemail is a slightly nasty customer.  Why?  Because I didn't call her back yesterday.   Except I did.  Listened to the busy signal three different times.  Come to find out, they were having phone issues.  No apology.  Tho I wasn't expecting one LOL

 

Get to my first job and find out the sentence "Hook up my old stereo to my new TV" actually means "Uninstall my 5.1 surround from the basement and re install it in the main living room.  BTW, there are no wires run... "(Hi, boss?  yeah, call my other jobs and let them know I will be running late all day)

 

One of my best customer's 18 month old TV died.  I am hoping it's something simple because it's out of warranty and they didnt buy an extended.

 

One of my Lodge Brothers passed away today

The artist for the album cover of Dark Side of the Moon passed away too.

 

I learned something today tho... when my wife says "No"... It's a good day to call off... :D

 

I Know what you mean about hitting the laughter point.  The maniacal laughter just means we're sane the rest of the time I guess. 

 

I would tell you more about today and wish you a better tomorrow, but the Banana is ringing off the hook and the toaster wants me to take it for a walk.  Where are those happy pills anyways?

You dudes have stressful lives. Maybe some yoga or something. In deference to our younger audience, I will not add my advice; which is closely related to a thread that talks about stories that begin with 'hold my ....'.

 

SY, I hope your tomorrow is lots better. CDBO? Your day sounded craptacular! Hope that is a one time fix!

 

Alan, you reap what you sow. :poke:  On the home front, tell her the beard is coming back.

I have those days . Yesterday I tried putting my mower deck on my JD314 , but it had other ideas . Mule drive was stubborn , and deck doesn't want to hook up . I must be doing something wrong .

But there will be better days

Started the day with backing the wifes jeep outta my garage.. notice a shiny spot on the floor. yup oil leak outta drivers side front axle. That means pull tire, pull brakes, pull axles, pull carrier with ring gear and replace seal that i replaced 9 months ago.  As i am looking at that the specialist calls. One more MRI appointment for monday at 830 am.. to bad its a four hour drive one way.  Get off the phone with them only to realize they don't let ya drive yourself cause the dye they use can cause problems.  Wife is outta town..  I'm not to sure if i want to find out if that growth on my brain is growing anyhow. It's been a craptastic day today. Sure hope tomorrow is better.I'm thinking a good day of burning excess wood thats in the yard.. might just light the whole yard on fire... let the snow contain the fire.

Yup, I've had them too.  I did my utmost effort to mess up three carburetors last summer.  Afterwards, I tried to screw myself up but nearly chopping off my finger scraping a gasket.  That was a great day.  I ended up putting down my tools and going inside. 

 

The world was much safer after that.

Well Team Green you made ask myself what I really have to complain about. I have nothing compared to the situation you are in.

 

 

I hope everything turns out okay with the brain growth. I hope and wish you the best!
