    Mike ... if you're ever vacationing in Maine ... the welcome mat is out.



    We're a full serve station and make every effort to do a good job for our customers.

    Torrential downpours, bitter winter cold, blazing summer heat ... you never have to get out of your car.

    Cash, credit cards, debit cards, personal checks, store charges, and up to 50.00 $ in rolled up coin ... not a problem.

    We bang em' through the station just as quickly as we possibly can so that they can get on with their busy day.

    Only got two dollars and twenty three cents in pennies for gas so that you can get to work ... No problem ... you get treated with the same dignity and respect as the guy that rolls up in his brand new Land Rover and buys fifty dollars worth with his platinum credit card that has a twenty thousand dollar limit.

    Need a cash receipt for taxes ? Not a problem ... coming right up !

    True enough ... we are a little more per gallon but we're the only game in town. All of the other gas stations in town closed their doors ages ago.

    ========================

    Things that piss me off .... bonehead company managers.

    That @#$^%%& bean counter up in the office pulled our "Port A Potty" the other day because it costs more to rent it in the wintertime. Ummm ... hello .... we are out here 10 - 12 hours a day with no scheduled work breaks. Where do you propose that we go to the bathroom ?

    They caught a bit of wrath on that one. I was sorely tempted to go pee on his tires.

    You know what they say about big wheels and little dogs.

    when someone puts metal out for you like a dehumidifyer and 2 chairs and they dont call you and they ask you if you got the stuff we put out for you and i said no. my mom saw a truck with crap in it and that must have been the person who stole my metal araaagh. when i found out i felt like destroying and hitting something non living of course=) i did get a dryer today yay. so that helped.

    When you have to install a furnace in a crawl space and find the flooring guy covered the larger access hole by the furnace...So you have to make the smaller access in a closet larger and dig out the dirt below to get the new one down there, then drag it across the crawl space to get it to it's new home.

    I sure hope you were able to charge them for the extra work.

    LOL ...bonehead management strikes again Kz ?

    The jobs boss is supposed to get the order of operations right in order to keep the job running smoothly. That means scheduling the subcontractors to come in at the right time. The sensible thing would have been to install the furnace and then close up the hole. He got it bass ackwards.

    Of course .... the job boss is kinda like the guy conducting the symphony orchestra. He has to know what he's doing ... but ... all of the instruments in the orchestra have to come in and do their part at just the right time. It's a team effort. It's beautiful music when it's done right. It's a discordant cacophony of sounds if one the musicians loses the beat.

    Some of the job boss's do have a mean streak. If a guy doesn't do his part when he's supposed to .... he will be made to suffer. It's a rough trade.

    I can't imagine not being able to eat bacon. I don't eat a lot of it but when I do I'm in heaven.

    Myself today for not paying attention to the forecast (bone dry at home, snowing at work) and taking the 20 year old 4x2 pickup to work when I have a late model AWD sedan with newer tires, heated seats, traction control, heated wheel and remote start sitting in the garage.

    I've been mulling it over. It bugs me that the guy with a college degree up in the office doesn't seem to know how to run a business ... most definitely not a gas business. He's kind of a loser. Goin' on 40 and still living in his parent's basement. One of those educated idiot types with a sense of entitlement.

    I'm gonna bide my time. He will get his comeuppance.

    See ... i showed him how to get things back on the right track ... but ... i didn't tell him everything he needs to know.

    If he insists on being one-way with his people and not taking care of their most basic needs ... he will lose their support for his leadership position.

    It all comes out in the wash. He won't be able to keep his job if he doesn't deserve it.

    Power went out at 7:30 this morning. It's a little chilly inside but not to bad.

    My wife brought a kerosene heater from Maine when she moved here. When we married, she brought it out when it started getting cold. That thing puts out the heat like you would not believe. We use it almost exclusively for heat as $30 of kero will keep us comfy all winter like $50/mo worth of electricity. If nothing else, get a kero heater as a backup.

    For those not familiar with kerosene heaters they use the air in the room and exhaust back into the room. Asphyxiation does get folks who use them unwisely. 73, Mike

    They recommend leaving a window partly open to get a bit of air change with the kero heaters.

    Propane is a better ( and safer) choice. It's a lot cleaner too. Just run it off a #20 cylinder ( BBQ tank). Keep the tank about ten feet away from the appliance and you'll do just fine for emergency use.
