one of my pet peeves for the day!

someone asks for advice or opinions, and someone else replies with just an answer with no explanation as why they come to that conclusion. as if we are expected to read minds or something. many times, peope are looking for what led you to that conclusion and why you feel about the way you do.

why is it some people have a hard time quantifying their answers or learning to comprehend what some one is asking for in the first place? lazyness? lack of knowledge of the subject? or just parroting remarks of others? or maybe a bit of all the above!

That my electric mattress pad can't work on a timer. I forgot to start it and now the beds cold. I like a nice warm bed when I climb in.

I like a warm bed, too. A heated waterbed for me.

Get in the habit of starting the mattress pad before you brush your teeth for bed.

i am not perfect by any means, but i take great care and pride in doing my job to the best of my ability. i take safety very serious and try to keep my customers safe, anyone on the road that might be behind my equipment, and to keep my equipment safe as well. i take safety issues very serious and try to keep up with making my guys on the yard are doing things properly and safely as well. even when a customer brings their own trailer. i or one of my guys oversees the securing of the load. i have had equipment come back with no chains or boomers to secure the load! i inform them very sternly, that this is quite unacceptable and not tolerated in any fashion, because it endangers other people on the road and my equipment.

if someone wants to get me steamed quickly, all they have to do is bring in one of pieces of equipment unsecured on a trailer!
Is there someone you can call to report an unsecured load to? I know that if we were to have a truck try to leave the lot that isn't safe or doesn't pass inspection we can call the DOT and they'll come shut the truck down.

They're second hand opinions maybe?

The heat itself is a nurturing goddess to me, and the chill side of the pillow is the carressing hand of my dear old friend, death.

Whatever helps me sleep at night.
