It pays to get an education

Tomorrow I am going to car part school. This company I work for is a tad weird so the going to school part is even weirder. My old boss is driving me to one of the plants and we will be educated together. Why this requires an escort/chaperon, I don't know. He knows more than enough about this particular car part. I know next to nothing. Oh well, part of the new position, which is really not a new new position. Just new to me.

Something I find odd about him and my new boss-they both do a lot of driving and driving travel. And they do not leave first thing in the morning. So when we get there it will be too late to see the plant and then we won't go to the plant until 9 in the morning. I guess we will get home around midnight. Shoot, when I used to visit the plants I left before dawn even if it was just to the airport and I was always in the plants by 6:30 at the latest. The plants hate it when corporate people come and don't get to the plant until 9, they think we are all dilettantes.

I am having some issues so I am on the high dosage Imodium. Let us hope this does not turn into an embarrassing moment. Also we are going into the hills with the moonshiners so who knows what we may find to eat. And I cannot eat any crazy ass crap right now. Tummy just will not go there.

Gotta pack, hopefully I can follow up tomorrow on the tablet. We will see.


  1. Is the auto plant in the moonshine hills? I hope you're feeling better.

    1. Not an auto plant, a supplier plant. I am a supplier of auto parts. Still feeling dodgy.

  2. You must be travelling with men! Once I walked into a meeting at division headquarters in WV a good hour late, driving from DC. They all looked at me like I had two heads. I apologized; I assumed the drive would be much shorter, per the map. They all looked at the young whippersnapper who gave me directions. "I sent her around the foot of the mountain; I thought she'd be afraid to drive over." At least he was that honest.

  3. Gotta love it, yes men. I am seeing a few more women here and there but still not many.
