The Story So Far…

Well here’s the latest.

Squirmy is leaving our line to take over a carrier wave sig gen group in another department. He’s making the move as soon as possible. Our new supervisor is a guy we have already nicknamed Garden Tool, because of his last name. You could hang him up in the garage between a shovel and a hoe. None of us know this new manager so we have no idea if he’s going to be a good thing, or a bad thing. Only time will tell.

I got an apology from that dayshift manager who showed up the other night during swing shift’s Dingbat Hysteria episode. The next day he checked with building maintenance about an electrical fire in the second floor window heaters and everything came up clean. Then he followed up in our area and talked with He-Man about his adhesive curing experiment. It finally dawned on him what I was trying to tell him that night was the plain and simple truth. I was kinda surprised he went out of his way to apologize for throwing me out of the building. I guess he must have felt like a total dumb ass after all.

Deadwood is in serious trouble over the missing noise filtering capacitors on the instrument power supplies. Engineering verified those caps need to be there, but they still don’t know exactly how many units Deadwood may have let escape minus those parts. We keep tight records of everything we build and test, and who built it. A Risk Assessment meeting is taking place in the next couple of days with management and engineering to sort the whole mess out. Deadwood is sweating bullets in the meantime, she thinks she might get fired. I have no idea what will happen to her.

Uni-Burn got canned. I heard about it from some guys working in the Vintage department. Uni-Burn was that doofus I had to share a company car with up in Spokane on the product transfer project. I didn’t like that guy at all. Anyway, he was cheating on his time and throwing attitude on his boss over the past few months. His manager got tired of it and threw him out. I didn’t realize it, but his mother works down in Stores and she’s pretty cool. She works on swing shift manning the front desk. Every time I call in a hot part order, she’s the person I deal with. Having her son fired from here must be damn embarrassing for her.
