I Hate Christmas Vacation Week!


Today 2 college-aged girls refused to get out of bed (10am), I had 6 window shades to install in their bedroom. I insisted the mother stay in the roon while I worked if she would not force them to get out of the bed. I made sure to be extra noisy especially when I had to move the bed to access one of the windows. What is wrong with people today? Anybody else have to deal with this type of crap!!!

Re: I Hate Christmas Vacation Week!


A couple months back we did a lightning protection job at a low security state correctional facility out in the middle of the woods.

Part of the job required surge protection to be installed at service entrance panels.

3 guards escort us into the barracks and watch as we slide bunk beds with guys in them and storage lockers out of the way to access the blocked panels and do our job.

One guard accompanies the gopher as he goes to /from the truck. We werent permitted to bring in tool boxes or bags or to take photos.

Sometines you just gotta deal with it, get out, and get paid

Perhaps it's a sign that we should all be taking the week off as well...

We did this year for the first time, and I think I'm going to plan on it from now on.

It's allowed me to catch up on a bunch of maintenance stuff that's been piling up all summer.

Re: I Hate Christmas Vacation Week!


I haven't taken this week off, but I'm not really pushing too hard. Way too much work to just stop.

I am going to try and finally install the trim on the inside of our place. Maybe rewire some vintage lamps for the kitchen redo as well. Maybe finish some unfinished insulation and other minor things.

Or sit on my butt.
