Last Day…

…thank goodness. It will probably be a quite long one as well. I will be on the grill until at least after lunch, then I have three weeks of schedules to do, some other paperwork to finish, audits and inventories and a butt load of cleaning (particularly my office). I also have to paint all of my booth supports and chair legs.

I thought they were going to tell me to stripe the lot, but for a change we are going to come off with some money and actually pay someone else to do the job. Too bad they aren’t a professional. It’s going to look just as bad as if I did it, but at least I get to sit that one out.

My boss that I have written about is indeed leaving the company, and I will have a new division manager when I get back from vacation. That really sucks. As many problems as I have given him over the years I like him, and the evil I know is better than the one I don’t. And he pretty much leaves me alone to do what I want unless something is just screwed up.

Our company came to him with a contract to sign in order to stay. Basically it said that he would sell all of his rental houses and quit taking safe jobs. Of course he wouldn’t sign it. Smart man. What I do on my time off is none of their business, but they have always asserted themselves in a very intrusive way.

  • i respectfully diasagree with one statement. we DID steal those states from mexico. the mexicans considered them part of their territory, and we decided we wanted them. So we took them. That’s my definition of stealing. i don’t know what yours is.

  • Very true. I still agree with the great majority of the email, but as a nation we were VERY agressive in expanding and Mexico is not the only country that we did it too. Arguments can be made both ways as far as that is concerned I suppose.

  • Hello,
    My name is Don Pratt and I am a Director of Alamo Alliance. I am sending this email to various groups and people around the country in the hopes of collecting signatures of American citizens who oppose this destructive and unfair blanket amnesty bill for illegal aliens. Please join us and hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of other Americans as we voice our opposition to this destructive and unfair Senate Amnesty Bill, S.2611. Please spread the word by sending this to everyone you can! We don’t have much time! You can view and sign the petition at our site http://www.alamoalliance.org.
    Thank you,

  • Jenni & Richard,
    I suggest that you do a little research. We (the US) paid for those territories that we got from Mexico. And Texas was already an independent state and joined the US of it own accord after Mexico attacked. Remember the Alamo?

  • Texas was a province of Spain from 1690 up until 1821. From 1821-1835 Mexico claimed it as part of it’s country. Of course that doesn’t give it any more right than we had, as of course Texas declared independence in December 1835.
    We didn’t actually annex the state until 1845, and the main reason that they did it was because Texas owed the a boatload of money. The US government agreed to assume the debt upon annexation. We also received several pieces of territory claimed by Texas during annexation including parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
    The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was the result of the Mexican-American war that ended in 1848. We picked up most of the Southwestern United States at that point. The rest of it was purchased in 1853.
    Just because we paid for something doesn’t mean that we didn’t steal it. Nor does it give Mexico the right to say we did. Don’t know, I wasn’t there. We were pretty agressive in our annexation of different parts of our country, which was a good thing considering that we had several different countries claiming parts of what is no the United States. Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Russia, France, all claimed portions of the US at one point or another.
