  1. LB log - 2016 Week 20

    Today's run was the highlight to the work week. It appears that some kind of Friday the 13th curse hit the GM ordering system, so no normal freight from the local part deployment center was processed and shipped out. After getting gas for the truck at the end of the route and getting food on the way home, I walked in exactly at noon. I can't recall the last time I was able to do that. This does pretty much guarantee that the outbound load will be doubled up for Monday's run, but I'll enjoy today's ...

  2. LB log - 2016 Week 19

    Company's in this weekend. The usual. When I came upstairs to start my morning routine to leave for work, he was there on the couch watching something on his ipad. I walked over, said hello, he looked up and said hello back, and that was that. Thanks for being here. I'm not looking particularly forward to the next few hours to come tonight after my writing this passage.

    On the subject of that person - it was his prom weekend just prior to this one. There's a woman who he's crushed ...

  3. LB log - 2016 Week 18

    Yet again, a post will coincide with the end of the month, which means that I have to take special care to ensure it actually gets properly posted today. Perhaps if I make a small adjustment from the usual time settings, I could avoid trouble.

    If a Diablo 3 patch is relased, and nobody plays it, is the game dead? As of this moment of writing, it is afternoon on a Saturday and out of my list of friends, nobody is in the game. I can't say that I am the least bit surprised. 2012 was ...

  4. LB log - 2016 Week 17

    In the realm of scripted performance, what is the worst faked emotion? Is it of romance which neither performer believes in? Is it with the character who everyone else responds to as physically attractive, despite the person not particularly being suited to the role? Is it depression or sadness without any substantial weight behind the event, rendering the whole scene as a kind of comedy? I contend, on a tangent from that, the worst faked emotion is that of humor (though I would put the not-sexy ...

  5. LB log - 2016 Week 16

    Cooori is a strange program. I do indeed think it's better to use it than do nothing, definitely, but I have to wonder what kind of progress I truly am making. It says I have thousands of words in long term memory and a thousand more "known" in total. There are times when playing Star Ocean 5 or listening to the recordings that I feel like I am making strides in my understanding, yes. I just don't think I've still reached that point of having a fundamental "basic" knowledge of ...

  6. LB log - 2016 Week 15

    For today's work, both of my usual loaders had called off. The load order paper which they gave to the person who handled the loading today was based on the old route structure as it was when I inherited it, and there have been many changes made from then until now. I arrived early enough to catch it while it was halfway done, so I was able to make some adjustments without undoing too much of the prior work, and volume was light enough that I was able to freely walk through the trailer throughout ...

  7. LB log - 2016 Week 14

    Tuesday morning on work was my moment of retardation. I went through the motions from one stop to the next with acknowledging that I was misjudging the rear clearance of the trailer, but still went through my day as if I would just get used to it or correct myself eventually or something. I didn't do so in time to avoid denting up a garage door at a stop. It kicked off a hinge and left a dent, but the door still functions. Regardless, it was completely unnecessary for me to park that close regardless ...

  8. LB log - 2016 Week 13

    The alternate work project never came around this week. Can't say I'm surprised about it. It might be deflected to this upcoming week, but I'm not holding my breath and I won't bring it up in the future until the boss initially does so. Ultimately, it may be the case that having a paid week just to show people how scanning boxes works is too good to be true.

    There's not really a lot else to report on the week. Work has just run late every day, and there's been no incidents otherwise. ...

  9. LB log - 2016 Week 12

    I will not dwell on the negative. I will not dwell on this week. I will not dwell on being broke down double over on the same day and getting back home with four minutes to spare on the 14 hour limit after skipping the last three stops. I will not dwell on dumb shit part managers who say "lots of dealers are unhappy" because I don't run the route the same way as the previous guy did who basically killed himself in doing his job.

    I have taken care of a small house repair ...

  10. LB log - 2016 Week 11

    The story is that there has been a few retirements at the GM PDC, and that their replacements are in the middle of training right now and won't be fully working until the end of the month. This means that I get my freight later every day. This means everyone gets their freight later every day. My intended dispatch is 2330, and on a late day I'd roll out at 0030 or so at worst. There's been two days this week where I didn't leave the hub until 0120.

    I also had a breakdown yesterday. ...

  11. LB log - 2016 Week 10

    I'd take the time to write more but I told my mother that I would be over at their place to help with some clean up project and my wife has already been called to ask where I'm at (as my mother still has no idea when or if I will answer my own phone). So, on that note.

    Pretty long week for work. Freight came in late every day and long story short about my tractor situation, I had to use another machine because the one which had come back from repairs and intended for my use had electrical ...

  12. LB log - 2016 Week 09

    After being in the shop for repairs the entire time from the first snowfall and its related incident until today, the former tractor which I had used at that point made its triumphant return. Based on appearances of the body and grill, one would possibly mistake it for being a completely new machine. Familiar sensations rushed to me as I got in and sank into the seat. I then turned the key in the ignition and click. Click. Click. Was it in gear accidentally? No. Try again. Click. Click. I usually ...

    My employer recently changed their health care provider, so we received notifications of new open enrollment in the mail this week. If I were to keep my same levels of coverage as well as include my wife in the coverage, I would have had to pay at least an additional $130 per week. Given current bills, this means that I would have reached a point of breaking even through the course of a week's income against expenses. A minimum 65 hour work week just to stay afloat. Needless to say, I was quite ...

    Get good, he says. OK dude, you win.

    My sister gave birth to her second daughter this previous Monday. I should make a point to see if I can drop by for a visit sometime this weekend to see her in person. The labor was induced as a precaution on account of some kind of virus which was contracted; she was scheduled as due within another week anyway so it wasn't a major point of concern to anyone and I haven't heard of any problems to have arisen from it.

    This has been ...

  15. LB log - 2016 Week 05

    Last Sunday sucked. Emotions got the better of me at the start and it affected the remainder of my day. So much for my day of rest.

    My W2 finally arrived yesterday. Despite only working the new route for eight months of the year, my income was enough to surpass what my wife and I combined to earn in the last year that she (well, we) were at retail. Beyond this, there's not much else to report. Work was typical and that leaves little time for me to do anything else other than play ...
