I sent emails to China telling them their quality sucks.
I found more crappy stuff in the warehouse proving that their quality sucks.
I wrote up a report billing back China for some of their crappy stuff.
I assisted in reviewing material that came back from the field because sometimes we build crappy stuff.
I watched one of my peers have a bitching fight with his wife on the phone because apparently she wrecked his SUV which he needed for his big hunting trip next week.
Now I'm eating mac and cheese and will chase it with some Reeses Pieces.

[COLOR=black][FONT=&quot]Christmas 2011 -- Birth of a New Tradition

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods --
Merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is!

It's time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in
a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plonking down the Benjamines on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift
certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about
a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or
motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine.
THIS is the new American Christmas tradition.
Forward this to everyone on your mailing list -- post it to discussion
groups -- throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city -- send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations,
and TV news departments. This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn't that what Christmas is about?[/FONT][/COLOR]

Today I sent coupons to around 50,000,000 people (literally) and then I played a couple of games of ping pong. I need a nap.

I have an employee who's husband must have called here five times and hung up every time when I answered the phone. The sixth time he called and got her I walked into her office and told her to tell her husban we have caller ID.

I just spent the last 3 1/2 hours on one of my inventory spreadsheets in excel because I have some costing issues that are all jacked up. My eyes feel like they're bleeding.....

I didn't work today because I only work pt on Thursdays through Sundays.

But I did have a productive day. Ate a healthy breakfast, drove out to my boss's house in Vienna to discuss some things and pick up some supplies, came home, grilled some chicken for my lunch and dinner until next week, ate lunch, read some of this book I'm reading ("Working Fire: The Making of a Fireman" by Zac Unger), took Everything Must Go back to my local Redbox, cashed my check, hit the gym, and now I'm back home again about to eat dinner and watch the Caps beat the Stars before relaxing and watching SOA and new episodes of Tosh and Workaholics. Then get up tomorrow and repeat the process before I go to work on Thursday. :)
