So i really don't know how much longer i can put up with how slow my workplace is. Seriously, for most of the day the three of us in the shop were inspecting an excavator. We needed some filters to do an oil change along with swapping out all of the other filters as well. We don't have a sufficient parts department, so if we need parts, we have to wait a few days for them. Sometimes i think the higher ups need to get organized so we can run a faster and more efficient company. The service truck has been out of service way before i even started. Its needs a whole new engine. The service manager thought he had one at a scrap yard, we waited a couple of weeks to see if it was the right one and no dice :-(. Another company thought they had the right one and still no dice :-(. If they would have just ordered up a new or rebuilt engine from a dealership of some kind, we would have it way sooner, the truck would be up and running and we would get a lot more business. Maybe i would be able to tag along for a few "Field Trips" and actually gain some experience in my trade. Honestly if this keeps up i might go seek employment elsewhere. It can't be that hard to find someone who will keep you around and allow you to work side by side with a journeyman who will teach you everything you need to know.
Well i think i need to go out for awhile. Some friends of mine found a new bar to hang out in and i need a drink or two to drown my sorrows in this crazy work day i had.
