Not how I wanted to spend my Saturday…

02 Nov

The day has been awful.

This is the second Saturday in a row that I get called into work. Both times it wasn’t necessary. Part of the problem is that they used off shore to build some web sites that are total junk and they want me to use that junky toolset to fix them. These sites will end up costing them a lot of money in labor. They aren’t that large. They should just let me replace it and use a more modern toolset. With the right tools, I am very, very fast.

This site today was so screwed up that there was nested toolsets and you couldn’t make changes to some things because there’s an obvious conflict with the tools themselves.

I don’t like working on junk and I don’t like using it. This project has things that need to be replaced. If they ultimately won’t let me replace the stuff with better stuff I’m going to have to reevaluate whether I want to work on the project. I need a team that is willing to learn and move towards something that is better for business.

Then I come home and I have to get back to the glass wall in the dining room project. I had new screen doors made. I had the glass doors taken out and the wheels replaced. They function much better. Now I have to reseal all the glass on the edges. Why? Because there’s condensation on the inside of the windows in the morning. That tells me the seals are bad. So I worked today and I still have more to go on resealing all the seals.

And unfortunately, I have to do the seals before I clean them up with the acid. Normally, it would be the other way around. But in this case the seal has to be done first, so I don’t destroy the tint on the inside of the window.

It’s not a fun project, but it saves $15,000. I just want to be done with all of this. I hate unfinished projects. There’s nothing in my life that is ever unfinished. It’s just that work has taken up so much time recently, I haven’t been able to finish this project.

Like I said, it’s not how I want to spend my Saturday. And although I originally wanted to go out this evening, I’m not going to feel like it by the time I am done.
