When it rains, it pours....

Post  BBFTorino on July 26th 2016, 11:55 pm

Was getting ready to pull the trigger on a complete motor for sale from a well respected forum member here (G-Code), he made me a smoking deal.
The next day, we get lay off notices at work, and a speech by the bosses about how they are trying hard to keep as many employed as possible (been laid off from this place before).
This morning, on my way out the door, (I go out the garage as its quicker than going out the front door), the Genie garage door opener self destructs and starts smoking....I quickly unplug it and check to make sure its not on fire inside,
Disengage the door from it, close door and go to work.
Come home after work and find that my refrigerator is not working. Go outside and check the main breaker box....none of the breakers have tripped. Quickly switch them all off and on just to make sure.
Fridge still not working. Get extention cord and try a different outlet, no worky.

Decide to go get a few bags of ice to keep all the meats and frozen stuff good until my day off.....on the way to the local store, a big rig passes in the opposite direction and a rock flies off and cracks my windshield:evil:

So my question is.....should I kill the boss??

I know that nightmare. I got layed off in Jan after 8 years with a company. Shortly after my father in law passed away. An hour after that my fridge quit working. Times can be tough but you just have to plow through it. If you want to kill someone save it for Hillary.

My grandfather and uncle were commercial fisherman their whole lives, when we worked for days with no reward hauling empty nets we were always told the same thing - "DON'T LET IT BEAT YOU"...I still remember that 25yrs later and I tell my kids the same thing. Never give up, better things are coming. Cool

Worked 130 hours on one of my irrigation pivots in June to keep it running and irrigate a 160 acre alfalfa seed field . blew both my knee's out jumping down the last 4 ft from the last rong on the ladders on the towers ! It was dryer than hell , got enough water on for a crop . Now every day a cloud comes by we get 3/4" of rain !!! But most days now my knee's hurt on a pain scale of 1-10 , I'm a 14!!!! Doc say's I need 2 knee replacements !! but working on the racecar motor keep the mind off the pain !! and at night Captain Morgan spiced rum works better than Ox'es

PS the Ox'es to addicting , and if you drink Captain Morgan Spiced rum you do not become an alcoholic , you become a Pirate !!!
