You guys talking about bosses not showing up on payday. My last job I used to get direct deposit biweekly. One week on paycheck Friday not only did I not get paid, but they withdrew the amount of my normal paycheck from my account. Talk about WTF. :censored::rolleyes:

But I wasn't as mad as the guy that had quit the company the week before and had his check withdrew as well. :laughing::no:

I know.. When I work on those mixed-use multi-family buildings, it's disturbing to see hundreds of paint and drywall buckets in the dumpster!

Wouldn't get anything out of my account if they tried that, the only thing I use the account for is direct deposit and the balance yesterday when I checked was $4.70. I withdraw it all every Thursday night and never leave more that $19.99 in the acount. The missing money did show up either last night or this morning though:thumbup:.

One thing I don't hate about being an employee is overtime. Getting a few hours of that tomorrow.:clap::clap::clap:

Today i hate the fact that my only table saw decided to release the blue smoke and chew up a gear.

I hate when my scheduled is f'd up by others. Need a service pulled from the side of a house so we can finish siding...power company lineman were supposed to be here between 7:30 and 8. It's 9 and still no linemen. :censored:!

Power companies dance to the beat of their own drum.

Today I hate that all the crap doesn't fit in the dumpster but the leftover crap does not necessitate a whole other dumpster.

Waking up from a nap thinking I'm late for work

Im guessing he put a big chip in the blade from that. Theres no good way to fix the blade with water stones.

Its funny I am only 18 and would never do that.

The best bet would be a grinder or what i have which is a worksharp 3000 and even manage to keep my beaters sharp

I hate venting fart fans in 85 degree weather because the hack who remodeled the bathrooms didn't want to go in the attic.

I do that from time to time. Take a nap when I get home and wake up just in time to think I'll be late to work.

I need a bumper sticker that says "I stop for buckets" There's an old barn I drive by sometimes and the hayloft door isn't quite shut cause there a zillion buckets up there. If I were a thief those buckets would have been gone long ago.

what I DO hate is when a friend says, "oh, you want buckets, I can get you a ton" and then shows up with a minivan full and they're clean but they all have plastic handles and the handles all break the moment you touch them
