So another exciting 8 hour work day of trying to properly weld new lugs onto a loader bucket. My mind wandered quite a bit during the work day. A lot of the time i had that "America F**K YEA" theme song from Team America stuck in my head along with a lot of other funny things that i have seen or read on the internet over the past week. I decided that when i got home from work i would sit down with my guitar and try to learn that song. I was able to get it down in 15 minutes, now i just need to memorize the lyrics.
A lot of talk going around with the co workers during coffee break in the morning. I learned that the welder in the past ran a very successful business and actually had made over 1 million from it. He mentioned something about taken to court over some kind of fraud and because of that his business came crumbling down. If it wasn't for that he said he wouldn't even be working he'd be long retired. talked about this crisis in Libya to and how one of the causes of the price of a barrel of oil increasing was because of that. I heard one of the techs mention that gas prices were going to hit 114.9 per liter by the end of the week and probably won't be much better come the summer time. When i drove home from work, sure enough i passed by a gas station and it was at 109.9 per liter.
