What is "cross talk", some electronic thing??, bummer about the red eye, but at least the car is working good, that's a big PLUS!. :good

Yeah, if you can't use the boat may as well send it down the road, beats letting go down the crapper then it won't worth anything then. :rolleyes

This is providing you have the cross box in your car to set your dial and your opponents dial into the box:

If you're dialed a 6.00 and the guy your running is a 7.00, both top bulbs will light. You're leaving off his 7.00 dial in basically. When the tree is activated, just the top bulb on both sides will light.  You release the button on that top bulb. Your delay box will add 1 second more delay. Your car will launch and hopefully not red light, If your delay box is set correctly.

Didn't get much done over the three days I had off last weekend. Colorado did get a bath Saturday morning. Ran out to Adams Polish's Saturday late morning and stocked up on a couple things. Last couple things I had shipped had holes in them and lost some of it. Spent time on the Monte Carlo, had an oil leak, turned out to be the oil plug/bolt. So it got another oil change and replaced the bolt with a new seal.

After this jacked up of a week due to work.  I don't know what I will get done this weekend.  Right now I'm just glad work is done for this jacked up week. Next week isn't starting out to much better so far,  :banghead

Yea no sh!t.  If I had coworkers that would do their jobs and stop complaining, prove they are worthy to keep their jobs and deserve a raise. We would be in a better place until we know if we have jobs at the end of June. Been 3 weeks and not a word from our manager on where we are. They even cancelled our friday weekly meeting. Been poking around, for what I do, There isn't anything out there. It's retire early, That I can't afford right now, OR start over doing something ells that I would most likely take a big pay cut. Either way I'm screwed if I can't keep my job doing all that I do for the city.

Yeah, that sucks the big one, companies won't say anything because they don't want you to start looking and probably leave before the time, so they just act like nothing is going on till the last minute, then one day you have a job, the next day you don't have a job. :beat  :finger

We were in a meeting with our city supervisor Monday morning. All he could tell us is that the city is pissed off and upper management is having discussions with GMI management. Hopefully to get this crap straightened out. I have been pocking around, nothing out there for what I do. SO the question is, what can I slide into until I'm able to retire with minimal pay hit until then, but stay above water financially.

Bummer, might try talking to some inside people that you know on a day to day basis, they might be able to come up with something, lot of places only hire that way, wouldn't hurt to try. :good

part of the problem is that I can't solicit the city or WWT for a job due to the way the non compete is written and they can't solicit me for a job. Everyone that I deal with that doesn't want me to leave knows what's going on. I have one person that's trying to figure out a loop hole even if I get hired by one of their vendors and I slide basically under the radar under a different job title. Time will tell and that clock is ticking.

Damn talk about BS, you basically would have to quit first then take a chance that you'd get hired, well hopefully someone will find a way to work around the BS. :beat

Keep in mind, The other thorn in this whole mess is that non compete is for another 2 years AFTER the end of the contract come June 30th.

I'm guessing he will get an ear full on not just time cards but this whole situation. Can't wait to hear what he has to say. If he thinks I'm going back 4 months worth of time, He's not going to get it. We didn't drop the ball.

All he wanted to do is focus on the time cards not getting done. Didn't mention anything about going back.

Finally this week is done and so am I for a week. Doing Turkey day with the Imediat family at the folks tomorrow. Not sure when we will get all the kids together. All I know is I'm not stressing over anything for a week. If it gets done, it got done.  :laugh  :D

Looking pretty quiet around here for the next few days still. Still no word on what we are doing with the kids. Be nice if we can at least all get together for a couple hours just to hang out and relax with no drama.  :good
