Working in the Storm
So we were supposedly get severe storms today at work and it seems to wait until I get out of my van to start pouring. I was in a customer's backyard splicing a line together and as soon as I started to fix the line the bottom fell out of the sky. The whole time I was saying to myself, "Not yet! Please wait!! Not yet!! A few more minutes!! Please, please, please!!!!" Of course, that didn't help. I was getting soaked and looked like an idiot out there without a jacket or umbrella. As if that wasn't bad enough, My second job was the same a cut line but THIS time it was already pouring down so I brought my umbrella with me. I got to the spot where I needed to work, bent down, and held he umbrella with my knees. After a few minutes I felt water on my head. This isn't possible! I have an umbrella over my head! What's up?!?!? I figured out quickly that the umbrella that my wife gave me and said, "Here you can have this one! I got my new Victoria Secret umbrella!" had a leak and I kept saying to myself, "Are you KIDDING me?!?! Gee, thanks, Sara!!" So after getting wet AGAIN even though i had an umbrella I left the house and went to another job where all the work was INSIDE. This made me happy! :) All in all, today was a SLOOOOOOOOW day. I am suppose to get off at 4:30PM but I usually get off a little after or pull back into the shop around 5. Today I was done by 3! I had to sit around and wait for my wife to pick me up and she didn't get off until 6:15PM. I had a LOT of time to waste.....so I pulled out my laptop and watched.....you guessed it....MacGyver!!! I finished my series so now I need something else to start watching. Now I am sitting at home, DRY, watching the weather. Well thats all for tonight. Thanks for reading and I hope you have a GREAT night!!
