Is this one of those days where you volunteer a day's work to spite unions, and go in anyway?

Anyone give a finger to organized labor by refusing to eat hot dogs and shoot guns, or have family outings?

Let's hear your tales of disobedience to the Union holiday.

I'm weak, I'm going to grill some pork ribs and relax.

But, I've learned that ARFcom has some very principled people. I know there's some of you guys that are protesting today. Let's hear your sacrifice. It'll inspire me.

I would but I got a ton of shit to do out at the farm...... (unless they call cause we only got one guy on today and I expect it to be pretty busy, in which case not only will i fuck the unions by not taking the day off , but doubly fuck them by not getting paid for going in)

Just ride my motorcycle, maybe cook out some later. Pretty much like most days.

I have no choice in the matter. Today makes 14 in a row that I've worked.

Have today off. Went in for 5 hours on Sat. morning. The seven of us are trying to keep the doors open. We make great windows, but are understaffed. Hard to beat a deadline for shipping that way.

Somedays I feel like saying fuckit, but I've been there 17 years , and like the guys I have worked with for all those years. We used to have 30 people.


Trying to keep the co. afloat.

Double time and a half comes out to like $87 per hour for me. My shift tonight is 12 hours.

Fuck yeah, I'm working. Or at least I'll be there. On night shift, when nobody else is there, and no work is scheduled. Unless something goes horribly wrong, it will likely be a shift filled with DVD and Directv after about an hour of checking equipment and taking care of paperwork.

Solidarity my ass! I'm gettin PAID today.

I'll BBQ later in the week when I get done fishing or shooting doves.

No worky for the regular job today.

Got to clean the mancave, no telling what I'll find.

Some jackass in VA decided that my college wasn't going to observe the holiday and we have class today.

Fucking shit-birds

Getting ready to leave in a minute. Busy time of year for me. 7 days a week for what seems like forever. I'll get a day off when it rains. I guess that will be my labor day. I always work New Year's day too. You have to start the year off right.

Going to go cut down a 70' tall beech tree at a friend's house, cut/split/load it up on the truck, haul it back to the house, unload, and do it again until the tree's gone.

Another day there's a 150' tall poplar that's about 4' at the base, plus a 5' wide oak, and a 120' or so tall Ash that need to come down on their property, too.

Dad and I figure that between the two of us we should have plenty of firewood this year. :)

I have to install some attic stairs today. The HVAC guys will be out tomorrow to work and they need access.
Going to my brother-in-law's later to get my grill and eat on though.

I own the company, fuck the unions...

I'll be doing a couple of hours of paperwork and video editing because I've got an early morning tomorrow and a report needs to be ready to mail before I leave.

Smoker is chuggin' away on the back porch and dinner will be good.

Socialism day?

I work in the medical field so it's pretty slow today so we have only a bare bones staff. I could've put in to work it, but didn't think that far ahead. I will next year.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 5:58:53 AM EDT
I plan to do nothing today if I can get away with it except for 1) going to the range 2) stopping at the liquor store to see if they have any sam adams octoberfest, if so I plan to buy a case 3) in that case the rest of my day will be spent drinking beer

Also have a cool movie I picked up at the redbox I need to watch. Its about the russians in afganistain, its in russian with english subtitles. I need to watch that this afternoon.

I'm going to finally get my new pulley and cold air kit installed on my car. Going to swapout the balancer too. Weather is finally nice enough to tackle.

Does working the' Honey Do List' count?

Gonna work on my new '67 Mustang coupe project car we picked up last weekend, if you wanna call that work. But then again, teardown/inventory is my least favorite part of the job.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 6:33:12 AM EDT
I am on a plane right now. Not by choice. My boss forgot today is supposed to be a holiday. Now I will just go have a bbq with my friend and his family in California to end out the day.

People don't stop getting sick just because some beaurocrat decided Unions need another day off. Yes, I'll be at work.

You ask as if I had a choice?

I have 348 Adtran TA600's that need a firmware upgrade. I did roughly 30 of them last week throughout the evenings. I hope to get a decent portion of them knocked out today but if I dont, no big deal.

So I have plans to but we'll see how it goes.

I am in the UFCW and I'm scheduled to work today... Sad isn't it. I'm thinking about NOT going in today to spite my union :P

i own the company and do work when it needs to be done. i am working from home today, for part of the day, then i'm afraid the "honey-do" list will take over my time.

It's fresh "out of the weeds" and a little rough for a photo shoot, but I plan on documenting this one from start to finish and posting the build here first.
