Well, THAT sucks...

So the contractor on one of our jobs has decided that in order to catch up to schedule he's working ALL weekend.

I HATE when that happens.

Contractor: So...we'll need you about ten on Saturday and Sunday and eight on Monday, will that work?
Me: I'll make it work. I won't be happy, but I'll make it work.
Contractor: I mean, if it's a problem...
Me: It's not a problem, it just is. I get paid the same whether your tests pass or fail. So. Let's make sure we do the work right the first time, eh, gentlemen?

Uneasy silence.

They better be ready for me tomorrow. That's not a threat. I'm just sayin'.

Update 8/30 10:00am: Well, that answers THAT question - they are ATE UP. Messed up like a football bat. Like twelve monkeys fucking a watermelon. All over the place.

It's gonna be a looooonng weekend.

You n me both. I'm doing 30 hours of online training this weekend. Mixed blessing, or curse, I don't know yet.

I'm going out on a limb, treading some serious "terra incognita", putting my cushie tushie on the line.

A little adventure in my old age!

At any rate, have a pleasant, but constructive, weekend.

Once again, your title says it all. Too bad, I was looking forward to reading what you have to say about McCain's VP choice.

It does suck. Sorry to hear you're not enjoying a three-day, Chief.

Yeah, and I wanna find out about that Merkley guy running for the Oregon senate seat, from a real live Oregonian.

Ugh, back to work. : -(
