That was part of why I retired when I did. There were a couple of people that needed to be let go but one had a relative in management who was really nose to ass with a VP and the other had HR convinced he had a case against the company if we fired him. I just got really tired of dealing with it and finally said **** it. These were not the only reasons I left but were certainly part of it.

I had to deal with one of the owners son working with us, possibly the laziest person on the planet. His wife walked in and barked orders at me one time, we had an understanding after that if she didn't do that I wouldn't tell her off. I was offered part of the company before I left as compensation, wasn't enough to deal with the baggage. After a while I refused OT as dealing with some of the idiots just wasn't worth the money. So i picked up a second job instead LOL.

In sitting here, exhausted as shit.
100 proof whiskey made as white Russians.
Just fed the fish frozen brine shrimp. They love that stuff.

I only eat bad on the weekends so I just boiled some eggs to make a giant salad.

I knew the axe was going to fall on my neck, so I started looking for another job. A guy I knew in Corporate called me one day and said he heard I was looking for a new job. He recommended that I "wait until they come bearing gifts, because the gifts are REALLY good". He was right.

Morning CrazE lady.
I am not sure about real cars, but they did use real actors.

Morning late risers and retirees.

BB, according to the movie specs I read they used over 200million in authentic Ferrari, Cobra, Ford GT etc. Pretty cool. I thought they did a great job with the flick. Christian dropped 40lbs for the role. If you watch old video of Ken Miles he nailed his character.

Thank you also to those that texted/called/messaged me yesterday. I spent the day reminiscing and doing things I knew my dad would enjoy.
