Well the numbers are in and Ford is the only U.S. based company with any gains from the cash for clunkers program. Why you may ask. Is it because Ford is the only company not owned by the government and the UAW or is it because Ford really did have a better idea? Or do we really prefer Asian vehicles?
I have decided to continue with the blog with a bit of a twist. Big Daddy moving to FC for a job is the reality of the U.S. auto industry. All jobs are moving east and those left behind are doing grunt work that is not very well paid. Well then we will do Snippets and Scraps and Just Too Fucking Funny. Followed by To/Do and WTF. Enjoy.
Plant Loco-you are not allowed to talk to me at my work station because they think we are both stealing shit from the plant. (Stolen item is flashlight with a dead battery)
Plant Loco Manager-I am looking for dead bodies. When repeated to my engineer he thought I was nuts until the Manager repeated this in front of witnesses hours later. We think he is watching Night of the Living Dead at home.
Just Too Fucking Funny:
I am leaving for work, pulling out of the driveway when I see a little old white haired lady pushing a stroller down the middle of the street. With a 30 pound white haired dog strapped in like a toddler with his back legs flapping like he was trying with all his might to gain purchase of any solid substance. Big Daddy tells me this is not unusual. Uh uh.
My vehicle needs window washer fluid. Need lessons.
Big Daddy found out today the reason he could not finish installing the garage door opener was due to the fact that the directions in English skipped the entire portion of installing the childproof sensors and the parts required that would prevent the garage door from slamming down on your head. However if you spoke Spanish you were cool. I think this may be a national recall. Big Box store let him take home a new unit and take the needed parts as long as he told them which parts he took when he took the rest of the shit back. That is truly WTF.
