<p>Joe, I have come to the conclusion that my management does a fairly good job of matching people's abilities and passions to the tasks assigned. If you feel that is the case at WPIX, then trust them that they may know you better than you know yourself. </p><p>And props ops to Six on both his posts. </p>
Joe - relax. You're a very smart guy, just feeling a bit insecure. I would bet good money that you can do this easily, especially if you have a decent working relationship with your co-workers that would become your subordinates.
Besides, somebody who made that old archived article about gluing coins to piston crowns can be more creative than just about anyone in corporate management.
Remember that the Peter Principle gets truer as you go higher in the company, to the point that big-time execs wear slip-ons because they can no longer tie a shoe lace. I'm sure that the unfailing witlessness of his bosses helped inspire Chris's wild ideas.
I work in big business. Pretty much everybody is faking it, and about 10% of the people make everything work. I'm confident you would be one of that 10%.
Though I have no doubt Joe would/will handle the new position just fine, I can't help noticing that this is probably the first time I have seen him unable to locate his big boy pants. Buck up Joe, you'll be great!
That **** terrifies me. Second only to death. Straining to **** and only getting intermittent streams sounds like the worst thing on earth. Lots of it here in the office, too.
Then we have that one dude that can **** to completion in about 2 seconds. ************ sounds like he just dumps a 5 gallon bucket in the urinal. I'm intrigued, scared, and envious all at the same time.
He can pee like that because he is into docking, but with his pee hole.
Having a little dispute with my wife about a big oil leak.
My belief is because I'm leaking so much oil and need to top off every week, I'm basically getting a slow oil change over time. Oil filter is obviously still in need of replacing. I hope it outlasts oil life.
She believes oil change still needs to be done every 2000-3000 miles. I think I can extend it slightly. In reality, I'm just trying to rationalize not doing an oil change because it's hot outside.
I now have a garage.
Well, a quarter of a garage, to be exact.
I, along with three other crackpot friends got together and joined funds (and our labor) to rent a "shop" that's big enough for 4 cars.
A short search led us to a funky (and conveniently close to home) neighborhood where we located a "shop/storage facility" with rather affordable rent.
None of us have the luxury of a garage in our respective residences.
Anyway, the rent is about $180+utilities, split four way among us, for the 60 m2 (645 sq ft) place.
We started by pouring concrete to level the floor, and then covered the said floor with 60x60 (24x24") granite tiles. The bare walls received 4 coats of paint, and then we built an L shaped bench (3 meters on the long side, 1.5 on the L part) and built a "solid" hardwood top.
The place is progressing beautifully.
We'll be getting a used 2 post lift, and then I will build a mechanical portable mid rise lift for suspension/brake etc work.
We have a decent inventory of tools and whatnot, but we will be getting a used lathe, and a milling machine to make some of our own parts.
The compressor will have to wait, because I need to install the necessary piping/plumbing in first. Fat pipes make for cheap air volume.
I will start a thread on this as soon as the shop looks presentable enough to take pictures.
I'm having difficulty with the idea of Malcolm Reynolds as a mentor. He strikes me as more of an "Ok, I won't abandon you to the Reavers, but only because I'm suddenly feeling a bit of a conscience today for no apparent reason" type.
