    Based on your response in another thread - this makes a lot of sense :smiley:  I'm an actuary myself.

    Retired now on permanent disability, but before worked with special needs children and adults. Had 5 out of 7 die in a year. High burnout job. I had to leave.

    That sounds like an incredibly taxing job.  I could never do something like that.

    I just make stuff. I have been a self supporting artist, sculptor, teacher and woodturner for the past 50 odd years. I've tried to work for others but I really suck at that.

    So I get to work today and get a message that the truck slated for me, now has to replace another truck that cracked a head.
    When I told them, ok, screw it, I'm going home.
    They asked if I was mad.

    No, no. Not at all. Why should I be mad?
    I have the oldest truck of all the field techs, that my truck looks as good as most the new ones, even though we haven't had orange trucks for 10 years and this is only the 2nd service truck I've had in 23 years and there are 4 field techs who've had 4 in 10 years, why should I be mad?
    I mean, I don't mind being punished for taking care of my service truck.

    Sorry to hear that, Tony, but I bet your old truck isn't sad anymore.

     I have seniority, but that doesn't mean much. It only means anything, if I were having to bump someone for a position.

    I find it funny that field technicians, whose job it is to keep **** up and running can't keep their own **** up and running.  Kids these days no respect for anything.

    This is typical of govt. You get 20 different pieces of information when this stuff is going on. Trucks ordered. Trucks here, truck went somewhere else, new truck is ordered, it's delayed. Wrong truck ordered, didn't meet specs, stuff installed wrong.
    Waiting for radio install and stripes. Waiting on lights. Etc, etc, etc.

    Had one the other day, where a new deicer was supposed to be put in service, but there were things wrong with it. I told them, just put it in service, give me a list and I'll fix it. 

    Love my job, but hate govt bureaucracy.
