EVERYTHING is permanent. There's no end in sight to the stupidity and excuses!

A year ago, it cost around $6500.00 to $7500.00 for a team to go cross country.
Try $15000.00 now AND, there is still tight capacity.

Over 100 ships offshore in LA harbor, waiting to be offloaded.
Yeah, the supply chain is a mess.

WTF, FedEx was a day late last week with what I ordered.
Last Friday I ordered more parts which they say will arrive today, yeah right.
7:40 PM hear now and the parts are 750 miles away.

Another excuse, at least it made it to Henderson CO. What’s with the initially expected Friday, it was Thursday.
No way it’s going to be here today.

My package has been departed from 28 ish miles away since Monday, and should have been here yesterday. Yes, I give my packages names.

Like I said before. Pretty sure they just throw darts at a map and send the package there.

S**t with those assholes, I'm expecting to hear that my package was somehow delivered to Yoda's address on the planet Degobah!

"Your package I have, hmm yes".

If the package ends up on the wrong truck headed across the country it "disappears" from tracking until it comes back off the truck and gets scanned again...4 days later...in Idaho!
Then again, I had a package last year that sat in Detroit for about a month at USPS.

It just made its way back to Blohio. And I updated the name to reflect my disapproval of the service.

Yeah, the supply chain is a mess.

I was supposed to be rigging in a new vascular lab at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta today. System is still in Long Beach Harbor and I’m home. Also, new x-ray equipment I have scheduled for delivery/rigging next week is on the fence because Merit United Van Lines can’t find driver’s/teams. They’re going third party for trucking which sucks, makes my job a lot harder.

But hey, I get to watch football today.

Well my wife’s car needs new front tires. Ive been driving it 40ish miles one way to Detroit and back every other day. Today she was outside and noticed decent size crack in the sidewall. Not sure how long its been like that, but probably shouldn’t drive it till the new tires are on. Could be an interesting ride if it blew out at 90 ish mph.

Hats off to your wife for doing a competent "Pre-Trip"!

Bandit
I was aware it needed new tires, just kept driving it while I let her use the 430gc. Planned on doing an oil change on it this weekend, but not going to worry about it till the tires are replaced.

My FedEx package showed up last night, only 2 days late.
Last week I ordered a 60 foot roll of adhesive 600 grit sand paper from Amazon, 2 days ago the box shows up with 1000 grit which I will return. So last Friday night I had them ship me the correct grit, they said it would arrive today, Sunday. I’m thinking sure, no way it probably coming tomorrow.
Can’t believe it, they delivered it this morning.
