    So electrical control systems go left to right high voltage to low voltage same with fuses in an enclosure. There is no logical reason that when the sub group of voltage (for example pump 1 and pump 2) that we do not revert to traditional left to right. Example 2 pump system pump one should be on the left side of the high voltage subgroup pump 2 on the right, same as 115v and IS inputs in a class 1 div 2 installation. 1 step from excellence don't be indignant when I point it out.

    Maple sausage and french toast sticks are not as bad as nasty fake egg omelets. I just do not have the patience for an english muffin in the lobby.

    I like Fake Egg Omelets. Low in calories and taste about the same to me.

    Turn on the air conditioner a week ago and no go.

    Repairman says coil is broke… won’t hold refrigerant.

    Weatherman predicts weeklong heat wave correctly.

    Repair part takes a week to come in.

    Smh!

    Buying a product that just ends up being ...PLUCKING CURSED!!!!
    Remember we bought new tires and I got a flat I didn't feel. Come out of store and it's flatter than a 5 day opened beer. Thankfully my mechanic was in parking lot and changed it. Unfortunately I had ruined the tire,EXPENSIVE TIRE, and they had to order a new one.
    Tuesday I go shopping and on road before ours I hear a pop but no pot hole and couldn't see I hit anything. I'm working in garden and hear noise at house. Come over to see hubby still home. WTH!!! Opposite tire flat...on the inside edge of tread is a 1/4" bolt sticking out. He plugged it enough to get me to the repair shop but bolt was so big it will need a tube put in if they can or...another new tire...give me a break...I rarely drive!

    All my life! God has a sense of humor when he had me arrive 2 wks early and on April fools day. There was a thing about insurance and a job switch....I was too early to be covered from what I was told. There it began...probably why I have a sense of humor....
    Ps...
    Father didn't have one though. I was told that story many, many times...lol

    I am so effing sick and tired of FoxNews.com video autoplay. You can't turn it off when using a VPN, don't ask me why.

    So I go to the office today and a guy in the engineering department is wearing shorts to work. I called him on it and said he was authorized to wear shorts but the guy the that works in the IT department. That did not go over well, then I get the BS excuse because he has a knee brace, funny last week when it was not hot he had no problem getting pants over his knee brace. The people that work in the shop can not wear shorts, they also do not sit in an air conditioned office. So if the any employee can not wear shorts no employee will wear shorts, wear sweat pants if you can not get pants on but don't give me bull **** excuses for wearing shorts.

    Friday 6:15pm and I'm still waiting on an employee to send out his final deliverable on his last day on this project. I provided him the email to use as a template and who to include on the email distribution at 7:15am.

    And he's texting me to Ask, what should I say in the email. I bet he FS up the distribution...

    I'd so much like to punch him in the throat.

    Got up this morning figured I would go for a peaceful boat ride and watch the sun come up, I thought to myself what a beautiful peaceful day no guests this weekend. Fast forward my wife tells me that her friend and her husband are coming up. I go to town buy steaks, corn and a few other things. I went to the C store to get a bag of ice, the young lass asks me if 1 bag is going to be enough, yep I said no problem. I drove home grabbed the groceries got them put away, then I started doing yard stuff, mowing, weed whipping, get the blower out to blow away any stray clippings. Then the wife tells me the guests are staying overnight so I need to run into town to get breakfast food and whipping cream for the rhubarb crisp. I get in my truck and it hit me that I left that bag of ice in the back seat of my truck for 4 hours and it's hot here. Yeah I had to get another bag of ice.
