something of an update

Well, suffice it to say last week was the week from hell.

The accident was my fault, wasn't paying attention to what I was doing. As dear old Dad would say - I was rushing. Yep, Dumbass. Dumbass me. Had a major interruption to my schedule, Sweetpea was sick, really sick, and taking care of her took a major portion of my day. I was late picking up material to get to the guys and was leaving a parking lot; made a U turn around a truck and BAM! Hit a concrete pole, if I may quote MG, "Fuckity, Fuck, Fuck, Fuck!"

It's been 3 business days now and no-one from my insurance company has even looked at my truck to assemble an estimate. I started lighting a fire under their ass about 4 pm yesterday, I pay big money for commercial insurance so I'm a little upset (understatement). I need my fucking truck. Hopefully y'all don't have an insurance company that "may be" from another planet - if you get my drift. Cuz so far they SUCK!

By the time Friday rolled around I was down to 2 employees, that's a good thing. The one quit, another just hasn't called or shown up and the third, the one I wanted to leave, well, I laid him off Friday afternoon. Seeeeeya! Gotta say, after that, it was like someone lifted a semi off my shoulders. The stress and pressure was gone.

The new guy is living up to my expectations. He's been on two jobs so far and MADE me money on both. That's the way this is supposed to work. PROPS to the new guy!

Found out Monday that the old lead guy has lied to me about at least two jobs. Spoke with a super on Monday to find out that my guy had fucked things up, not the GC as I was told. The man told me that my guy had been told explicitly what to do and he continued doing as he always had. Again costing me money to fix. Another job I was told was completed was not, talk about surprised. Holy Shit, was I surprised. Gotta add that job back to the schedule. How could he possibly think that I wouldn't find out about that.

In the past. It's all in the past. Time to move on, bygones people.

This week has been all about moving forward and that we have been doing in spades well, 'cept for my truck and I would expect that to change today. IF it doesn't I'm gonna kick the insurance companies ass back to the planet they came from and then maybe a couple planets extra just for good measure.

Had a great weekend. Concert Friday night, party Saturday night and the theater on Sunday. It was great to enjoy all those things without the pressure of the old regime hanging over my head. The new crew kicks ass, and we're gonna keep it that way.

Have a great Wednesday peoples. Pirate out.
