O.M.G.

Cause, that is a terrible way to attempt to teach employees.  I hope that person gets a reprimand or something!

Jade, Unfortunately upper management has let this guy have the run of the mill. Leaving the company wide open to law suits if someone actually got hurt. Whether or not anyone followed his instructions.

What grinds my gears is today.  ALL OF IT!
Very long story, don't want to get into it right now.
It is a day when everything went wrong all at once.

I am one guy, I can not do everything everywhere, all the time.
Isn't it okay to say "I am flesh and blood, and can't take anymore, stop!"
But would it get heard, and if it did, would anything change?

There was a furmeet this weekend, but it didn't come up on any of the furry FB pages I follow. Weather wasn't the greatest anyway and I-75 was flooded about halfway there.

The guy who has been altering the safety meeting info decided he was going to hold the plant wide safety meetings this month. This months safety topic. Chemical safety. This centers around the MSDS or Mandatory Safety Data Sheet. This is a huge list of all the chemicals known to man kind. Not only by the chemical but the products as well. Thousands of pages. The good, bad and ugly for each one. Fist this guy makes statements on how he feels these are unnecessary. At one point he said "There is no reason to have a skin irritant and corrosive listed as to separate things. They both mean the same thing." That's right folks. Taking a quick shower and not rinsing off all the soap is the same thing as dumping hydrochloric acid on the same spot. And everyone's favorite quote. "Everyone knows all you have to do to put out an electrical fire is to turn off the electricity."  Not making any of this up folks.

 Cause,  someone needs to fire that guy before he gets someone killed.

What grinds my gears is unrealistic expectations at work.  I'm not God, just some guy doing a job.

what's grinding my gears here lately is there's a new transformer figure of Bumblebee and it's a target exclusive and I don't live anywhere near a target!
On top of that none of my friends are near it. I do have one friend who works there but I feel like a heel asking her cause I've been kinda quiet for several months. It would make it seem like I'm only talking to her again to get her to get me a toy.

I hate exclusivity deals.

Kay, have you tried Target's on line store?

What grinds my gears? EVERYTHING. I'm old. :) I enjoy an underground music scene. One to four stringed home made guitars. What grinds my gears is these folks are completely against standard guitar tuning. To the point were someone introduced the New Arkansas Tuning for four cigar box guitars. Clamming this NEW tuning idea opens up a lot of possibilities. It's a big chunk of standard tuning. Standard tuning for a six string guitar is EADGBE. This brand new Arkansas tuning is EADG. Because if you come out and call it standard tuning people will reject the idea completely.

Spectrum and their service. Found out today I had no home phone. My only phone. Not happy. Not a good thing. Took a half day off today to get this fixed. It took them close to an hour to get it together on their end.  Still have problems with their service. Because I still can't update my PS4. TV still freezes up with I try to channel search. At least for now i have a phone again.

When your get surprised by the cost of shipping. I just ordered a book straight from the publisher. Didn't see any shipping choices. Usually you choose that last. Nope. Right to paypal. Then I see the cost of shipping. Apparently they think I need this book tomorrow. From England no doubt. Paid $40 for the book and $50 for shipping!

I learned this book is still being published by the author. And selling it for 39.95. Amazon has this same book listed for up to $466.00 wile it's being sold on Ebay for $120 to $160. With free shipping!

Guess the only thing I can say that's good about my latest purchase is the actual author of the book has profited by this sale. Not some scalper on Ebay or Amazon.

I offered my sister tomatoes as she makes her own salsa. It's been over a week and she's never picked them up. Plus my Mom told me not to bring her any more.

 What grinds my gears is the downtown Denver 16th street mall.  Dangerous, dirty, over priced place. But it is the only place to get food at times.  I'll be glad to get back home out of this tourist trap.  And to think I lived near here! Scoff! Take me home,country roads!

Gov. Ron DeSantis and Gov. Greg Abbott. Both of them are acting like petty dictators in regards to covid. They're gambling with people's live.  >:(

Got an email today about that book I ordered. Got a $42.80 refund!. A quote from the email, "We were able to find a much less expensive way to ship your item...." I know this should be in the 'Good News' thread. Made more sense to post it here.

And now for what grinds my gears. I just got an invite to our class reunion. Graduated 40 years ago. This is one of two invites I've received in all those years.  Lived in this town for 50 years. Lived in this same house for over 25 years now. They could only find me twice in all these years. Obvious I'm not going.  :D

False advertising. Ya'll know I'm $$$ in a hole getting myself into traditional painting. Nothing like buying a few more tubes right. :) Anyway. Without going into a lot of details and getting right to the punch line. On the 'Gamblin' ( the name of this paint manufacturer ) site it states. ' Our 1980 Transparent white is made with the same alkyd refined linseed oil as our artist grade paints." On the box this large tube of paint came in it states the same thing. On the tube this paint is housed in it clearly states "Safflower oil". Is there a difference in quality? HUGE. I've contacted the art store ( Jerry's Artarama ) and let them know of the discrepancies of what Gamblin claims and what they are actually offering. Told then I have no intentions of asking for a refund. I'll keep what i got. I guess Gamblin oil paints are living up to the spirit of their name. "Buying our paint is a Gamblin."
