Well I’ve done it again. I thought I wouldn’t ever have to do it again but I did. I worked a double shift today. I went in at the beginning of 1st and left at the end of 2nd. I figured that next week will be short so I stayed. It was the first time I worked 2nd, which will be my assigned shift after next week.
Dairy, the supervisor blew my mind. He came up to me at the first of the shift and thanked me for working over and then told me to let him know if I got tired. I arsn’t never heard a supervisor do anything like that. It’s usually we got work to do. I never told’em I was tired so I don’t know if he was gonna send me home, let me take an extra break, or massage my feet, or what. Maybe I’ll find out next time.
Dairy I had thunk that 1st shift was laid back but they hump it compared to 2nd. I was told by one guy my first week that if you came to work when you suppose to and if your on time they wouldn’t ever say nothing to ya. I’m starting to believe it. But I tell ya Dairy, I’m too competitive, we have these charts at each work station that at the end of the shift you fill out how many pieces you run. I keep looking at the other shifts and I want to be the hightest. They start the week on fridays so far I’ve had the best numbers for friday and saturday, of course today I had two shots at the best count. But Dairy those numbers arsn’t a reflection on how many parts I run it’s a reflection on how good the machine ran and whether or not you had to wait on the crane alot. We work with heavy metal bars and have to use a crane to load and unload each machine. There is only one crane for about 10 different machines. My machine is the only one of it’s kind in the place. This company deals with metals; titanium, nickel, stainless steel, etc, etc, and etc. My machine is like an automatic car wash. I load the bars on a conveyor and they go through washing, rinsing, rinsing, and drying processes. Then I unload them. I also make a rough measurement on them for the saw man. I clean them so that the inspectors can see any defects and repair or cut them out. If the bars are light weight I have a pretty easy time, if’n they are heavy I work harder. Today they were light that is why I worked both shifts.
Enough about work Dairy, I got home today Lynn had a “surprise” for me in Jamie’s room. It was a guinea pig. My sister-in-law got it for my niece and when her mom said no she gave it to Jamie. I talked to Jamie and we decided it was best not get a pet. So sis-in-law will get it back. I don’t feel too bad about it since Jamie wasn’t whole-heartedly set on having a pet anyway.
Enough about pets Dairy, I’m dreading tomorrow. I let the kids talk me into signing up to be in the local parade. Our church will have a float to ride on and others will walk and give out candy and salvation tracks. I sure don’t want to do it but the kids really wanted to hand out tracks and I don’t want to discourage them from participating just because I’m lazy. If it was just riding on a float I’d stay home.
Enough about parades Dairy, I’ve been wanting to go to Morrow Mountain for a long time now and we ain’t made it in a long time. I’m gonna have 4 days off for Thanksgiving and I am going to Morrow Mountain or somewhere of a similar ambience. We’re gonna hike a little and eat a little and see some wildlife and probalby eat a little more.
Enough about Morrow Mountain Dairy, I’m tired I’m going to bed. See ya later.
