OMG! I needed that. It reminds me of the project I'm working right now. We start doing something (anything productive) and the customer immediately makes minor comments on a drawing, rejects it, and requires that we resubmit before proceeding...

Random thoughts.........

This morning on my way to work I looked in the rear view mirror and saw the sun beginning to rise. It was so pretty. And the bonus was I realized I will never have to drive to or from work with the sun in my eyes.

On my way home from work I realized it was 1600 and the sun was still high in the sky. It felt like Spring today. I was happy. I thought of cooking out on the grill but I didn't have anything thawed.

Opened the gravel pit in 1975 with a small shooting range as I had joined the local Sheriff's Dept and we trained in the pit.

A house came up for auction that I owned the property on 3 sides of - - - I bid more than what I thought it was worth but a couple from Indianapolis bought it. Right away they hired a lawyer to get the gravel pit shut down - - - Lawyers on both sides made money but they lost - - - later another couple bought the house and filed suit to stop my cattle feeding operation as they did not like the smell - - - lawyers made money again and they sold out - - - next family filed suit as the trucks would kick up dust - - - my lawyer pointed out that I owned a 26' wide easement thru their 2 acres and if they did not want my dust I would abandon my road and come thru their property - - - they dropped the suit and have lived there about 10 years now. I should point out I use a water wagon on the roads several times a day to keep dust under control, I keep the roads ( including their drive ) clean of snow and mowed. I inject the manure and try to do it on days cold enough that the people would have their windows closed - - - by injecting the manure the smell will last only about 1 day.

Why do people come out and buy what they can and then start telling the people that are already there how to live - - - I guess it takes all kinds to make a world. If you do not like the activity in an area go somewhere else and spend your money.
In a similar vein the same thing happens with airports. We build airports in places that have little or no people living around, then some move in and immediately try to shut it down because of the noise. It seems we always lose and it is because we end up in the minority when the population growth surrounds us.

So.....I call a parent back today because she's upset that her child got a zero on a Quiz that she wrote her name on and turned in. I also gave her child opportunities to retake the Quiz, which she did not. I was called a "f$&kig idiot" and a few other choice terms and was told that she's not discussing $hit with me and that she's going to the school Board. Fun times. Fun times. I would have offered her a ride to the Superintendent's office but she hung up on me. Some people have no manners.......
