when you get pulled off to work on the one that is complaining the loudest that day. I guess this is a good problem to have in this economy,
Uh, not really a 'good problem'. Actually it can be a killer for future business not only for those customers put off, but also the bad press from word of mouth. Just sayin.

Hope things work out and things get finished for you.

Default Almost Funny

This morning I mentioned to my boss about 25 1" Stainless balls on EBay for $161 and he said that sounded like a good deal. Mentioned the $15 from McMaster Carr, and then he said I should not be wasting my time looking for them. He decided to go the route of welding the 2 halves together, and that is the way it is. Just do it. He was not going to spend a week looking for the best deal, and did what he what he thought was best.

Sometimes, (Actually most of the time) I can't figure him out. One thing I do give him credit for is that the business is still open. I think it could be much better most of the time, but then I have to remember that I am not the boss. His headaches are his, should not be mine, unless I want to make them mine and go into business for myself.
