I hear the stories of "normal" guys working in corporate life. I feel the pain, but I can't relate directly. I always worked for small family businesses. Never in my live have a hierarchy of management. If I had a policy question, I went to THE boss and owner of the company.

Today I had a long meeting with the HR department, they sent me down to the sensitivity training department. I taught a class on burping and scratching goofing off as I am an expert. Sleeping with the bosses wife seems to keep everyone happy.

I like when they pass out the agenda at the meeting and I am on it.

If it doesn't shape up I will take it out back and shoot it and replace it with something better.

No paperwork and it wouldn't be the first one I took out back to put down.

Argh, the other system admin guy is messing with all the permissions. I keep not having access to the things I need done. He needs to make an outline of who needs access to what BEFORE he starts moving people's access around. Everyone started complaining and sending in help tickets. Now nobody in IT has access to see or do anything with the help tickets.

The last system admin guy we had did far less than this kind of stuff and was let go.

Maybe someone should buy them a dictionary of IT terms. Mail server, encryption, permissions, OUs, SSL/TLS, AES256 . . .

The guy that is VP of IT worked for us a long time ago. We were trying to get approval for cat 5 so we could do ethernet. He kept pushing for fiber and Novell.

Doesn't matter if what we had in place, how inexpensive it was or even how well it worked, he has broken it trying to make everything we have like the last company he worked for Whom spent at huge amount on theirs IT budget, they did software solutions not manufacturing. This is the first quarter since he has been hired that our profit based bonus did not make enough profit to pay a bonus. But hey, we are moving everything to the cloud so we don't have to manage servers and upgrading our internet connections to Gigabit.

TGIF folks.

I have my upholstery guy swinging by this morning. He will take my 911 rear seat to sew on a new tab to hold it up. I have a few spots on the leather interior than can use some dye work after 170,000 miles of use.

The bosse's wife made me drive her to the local big gardening center. She needed 6 big bags of mulch for the flower beds. So of course she wants me to drive the El Camino and haul them home. As a bonus she made me unload them all.

We are supposed to have several days of rain next week. Maybe many inches of rain over 4 days. I guess it is always good to get rain, but I would prefer a nice quiet rain every few nights. Leave the days sunny with mostly clear skies. I guess we don't get to order up perfect weather.

At least the weekend will be nice.

Had that kind of rain here. Cloud burst right over the neighborhood. Got soaked taking the garbage out this morning.

Yea, I will be digging lots more holes in the ground this spring for the bosse's wife. We dug holes in the compost pile the other day to turn it some. It is starting to cook some now that the weather is warmer.

remember call before you dig and do it in this order.
1. 811 just to prolong things.
2. door dash or uber eats for the break.
3. the boss for beer!
