Ash Linsday

Today is ash wednesday, where people walk around with soot on their face. Then they give up something that's not really a sacrifice, like chocolate, and pretend that their all spiritual.

Brady Quinn would not approve of such an outwardly display of religious beliefs.

I don't think Dr. Quinn will be coming back to Denver anytime soon. I don't think there is necessarily anything wrong with what he said. I'd have a lot more respect for him if he'd have come out and said. "Heck yes I said those things. There's nothing wrong with what I said, and I stand behind every comment that was made". As opposed to the "taken out of context" crap.

P&C's are all in. A lot of talk around here about the fact that the rockies rotation will suck. Chacin should be decent, but he's probably the only pitcher i'd own in fantasy from this team, until De La Rosa proves he's back from TJ surgery.

Big weekend coming up. All-star game for the NBA (yawn), the NFL combine (who is the fastest o-lineman in the 40?), Daytona 500 (he's making another left turn), and the Oscars (sans eddie murphy).

Nuggets are awful. I hate them. Although Kenneth Faried is tha truth. That kid can jump out of the gym, and he never stops working. He's a rich man's Ben Wallace, with a little better offensive game. I say that with the utmost respect, watching him battle against Kevin Love the other day (another very good rebounder), he looked like he was about a foot taller than Love on every rebound because of his hops. Goodbye Birdman, you had a good run.

Asians have small penises. This is the truth. That's what makes the jokes funny. WADR to spiff

from last night. Meiz made a comment about if he left the place would fall apart, or others would quit.


I like to think that too...the truth is, if you quit (or i quit), nobody is leaving their job unless they have another one lined up. They'll bitch for a day, then get over it and keep drawing a paycheck.

Blue said...

if there is one thing i've learned, while people think their value to an organization is super high...everyone is replaceable.

"from last night. Meiz made a comment about if he left the place would fall apart, or others would quit."

the truth is the place would be just fine.

everyone is replaceable.

three times this week people have come in bitching about their pay or the percent ownership they are getting in the deals. all three times i walked into the copy room and got the nice paper we have in there. i gave them the paper and told them that if they think they are that underpaid then is ok if they use the paper to print out a resume and find another job.

tem said...

*then it is ok...

That comment made me laugh. Like Sysco was some fledgling operation that was going out of business before mize arrived.
We have a douche like that who I work with every night at HD. He thinks that he makes the store go. Last week he was talking about how he can't take days off because noone would be able to do what he does. I said dude, I did what you do before you were here. And someone else did that job before I got here. I don't think the store would close because you took a night off.

cmk was talking to VW corporate last night, bitching about the car situation. CS rep she was talking to was getting her nowhere. So she asked to speak to his supervisor. He says hold on. She's on hold 5 minutes and the same dude comes back and says "OK, I talked to my manager. Here are the 2 options you have right now. 1) You can bring it to another dealership and have them look at it and see if they can duplicate the issue. 2) You can take the car back and keep a diary of each time the incident happens so that we have a better idea of how often it's happening".
Cmk says "are you kidding me? That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! Do you have any idea what is wrong with this car?" Dude says "Yeah, it's stalling". Cmk says "it's not like I'm sitting in the driveway and it stalls. It stalls when I'm turning traffic, putting myself & my 1 year old daughter in danger. And you're telling me that you want me to keep a diary of every time that happens so that you have a better idea of what's going on? Can you even comprehend what you're asking me to do?"
CS rep gave her a ::flank silence::

Keef said...

*turning into traffic

Beth said...

I bet a threatening attorney letter would help. Too bad kod's in Minnesota.

tem said...

" OF course they all walked away thinking "what a dick!!"."

they shouldn't be bitching to me about how much they make when i know they are in the top 5 when it comes to getting paid.

also they make roughly 4 times as much as i do. so they should look for sympathy elsewhere.

Keef said...

Yeah we were talking about the attorney thing last night.

its not because he is asian?

We'll be on the phone with bolth* corporate and the dealership the rest of the week. The dealership is saying we need to talk to VW, and VW is saying we need to talk to the dealership about putting us into another car.

Keef said...

Cmk wants to get out of the lease completely. I don't know how feasible that is. I'd be content with just getting another vehicle until the lease ends in January

Keef said...

That's because you're a chump

/steve

Blue said...

You can always buy out the lease..

which is probably a really poor option. You should read through the lease documents, as to the options for terminating the lease.

I know there's a clause that if the car is totalled, the dealer has the option of either replacing the car or ending the lease. But i'm not sure about lemons/mtce issues.

Keef said...

az lemon laws

Keef said...

"az lemon laws"

consumer shall report the nonconformity to the manufacturer, its agent or its authorized dealer or issuer of a warranty during the shorter of the following:
(a) The term of the express warranty.
(b) The period of two years or twenty-four thousand miles following the date of original delivery of the motor vehicle to the consumer, whichever is earlier.


It's got like 27k miles and it's been over 2 years

Keef said...

although I guess the first time it was taken in for this problem was last year, so it was under 2 years and 24k miles.

Keef said...

Cmk mentioned contacting 3 On Your Side, which is a newschannel here that goes after companies who are attempting to screw over people

Blue said...

being a quart low on oil making your car stall doesn't make any sense to me at all

Blue said...

unless there is some sensor that shuts down the engine when it gets low on oil to prevent damage.

but even then, it would do it all the time

Keef said...

being a quart low on oil making your car stall doesn't make any sense to me at all


Yeah I said that to the service manager. I said, this car holds 5 or 6 quarts. Being 1 qt low isn't going to set off any sensors that will automatically shut the vehicle off

Keef said...

unless there is some sensor that shuts down the engine when it gets low on oil to prevent damage.



That's what he claimed. he said the oil pan would be low which would set off a sensor to shut off the car as a safety measure. I argued that 1 qt would not lower the level enough to shut down the car

Meiz said...

"from last night. Meiz made a comment about if he left the place would fall apart, or others would quit."...etc...


I don't think at all that things will go awry without me. They'll just need to hire 2 temps to take care of the stuff I do. That's a fact, jack. My boss already wants to bring in 2 new people, but again, my department is being eliminated in September, so management has no motivation to hire new people. They're just relying on me/us accepting the fact that we're being bent over the barrel and being terrified of being jobless. I get paid eleven dollars and hour. That's the lowest amount in the company, and I've proven my worth to be well above and beyond that. Regardless, I'm not afraid of losing shit. I don't get paid enough to worry about not having a job. I can go get this money at a gas station.

Keef said...

Stop it. WADR, There are plenty of quality workers out there who need a yob.

Keef said...

Then do it

Beth said...

Meiz, I think what strikes most (everyone?) here is how it seems that repeatedly you talk about how valuable and important you are to your employer yet they never seem to realize it, and how underappreciated and underpaid you are.

If it happens once then that's tough luck but after the 2nd or 3rd time everyone starts to wonder...

Keef said...

Getting a job these days is easy peasy

Keef said...

Meiz said...

"Stop it. WADR, There are plenty of quality workers out there who need a yob."


Hey, I'm just saying. I've been told repeatedly that I'm the best that's ever held my position here. Are people just lying to me? I don't know.

Well that could mean that you're really good at your job, but it could just mean that the people before you really sucked...

I've never had a problem getting a job.


So you just turned away the job offers from all those jobs you've applied for since you worked at UPS?

Oof

That's the same thing. Best is best.

"So you just turned away the job offers from all those jobs you've applied for since you worked at UPS?"

I'm not jobless.

Actually, the job they gave the supervisor's kid is the 1st time in my life I didn't get a job I interviewed for.

NS

Not everyone lives with with their parents and don't pay rent. Again, WADR

Keef said...

I'm not jobless.


Weren't you jobless for a while when you left UPS?

Meiz said...

Oh, whatta* know. One of the places I applied to last night contacted me to set up an assessment on site already.

Weird.

Meiz said...

"Weren't you jobless for a while when you left UPS?"


Yeah. And I got this gig as soon as I started actively looking. In fact, my friend at Manpower contacted me about the job. I didn't go to them.

Meiz said...

I'm sorry if my confidence is off-putting. I just think I'm better than "you".

Blue said...

i wasn't meaning to disrespect meiz.

shit i feel the same way at almost every job i've had. I think most self-respecting people with any sort of an ego would feel the same way.

of course i've learned over time, that in the end, i'm just a cog in the wheel, and if that cog breaks or gets too squeaky, they get a new cog.

i have no sympathy for them.

I wouldn't say having a slush fund is living above your means. It just allows you to spend money on things w/o your cm knowing about it

Things like hookers?

ARIZONA’S LEMON LAW

New Car

The Arizona Lemon Law has a number of specific provisions. You should read the law, file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau AUTO LINE Program or consult with an attorney if your new car is a lemon. Here are the basics.

The period covered by the Lemon Law is the term of the manufacturer’s warranty or two years or 24,000 miles, whichever is earlier. This covered period begins on the date of delivery of the vehicle to the consumer.

If there is a problem with the car that substantially impairs the use and value of the car and does not conform to the express warranty of the manufacturer, the consumer should report it to the manufacturer.

The report must be made during the covered period.

The manufacturer or its authorized dealers can repair or correct the defect, accept return of the car or replace the car with a new car.

There is a limit on the number of times a consumer must allow the manufacturer to repair the car and the amount of time the car can be out of service. If during the covered period, the manufacturer fails to successfully repair the defect after four attempts, or the car is out of service by reason of repair for a cumulative total of 30 or more calendar days, the manufacturer must accept return of the car or replace the car with a new car.

On the small chance anybody sees this within the next 2 hours, what would be a recommended way to go about telling my boss I won't be coming in on Monday morning, due to an appointment in Green Bay?

My current plan is to tell her tomorrow that hey, I have an appointment in GB on Monday, and I won't be in until noon at the earliest.

Meiz said...

Let it be noted(and I'm sure you've assumed this) that I don't get anything that resembles PTO or vacay hours.

ToddPacker said...

what's wrong with telling your boss you'll be in late for personal reasons

Meiz said...

"what's wrong with telling your boss you'll be in late for personal reasons"


Nothing, IMO. I'm a fucking temp, dude. I literally don't know how they might handle it. The company strikes me as very poorly organized, and Monday is a shitty day to not be there. Our department is short a person every Monday, and every Friday due to off days because of working weekends. So for half the day, the customer service dept will consist of the 2 least competent of the 4 of us. I'd like to say I don't care, but I do.

Keef said...

period covered by the Lemon Law is the term of the manufacturer’s warranty or two years or 24,000 miles, whichever is earlier


We're at 28,000 miles now

Beth said...

"We're at 28,000 miles now"

Yeah but per what Kod posted, "The report must be made during the covered period." You'd said you made the 1st report within 24k miles I thought, so the lemon law still applies to you.

Beth said...

See, you screw enough attorneys and some of their legal reasoning and knowledge rubs off on you. (Along with other things...)

tem said...

It is troublesome when the problem can't be duplicated.

tem said...

I'd document the shit in a letter to VW though. Just write out that you told them it was stalling when pulling into traffic and because they couldn't duplicate the problem they said it was fine.

Beth said...

And send it certified to everyone you can think of at VW.

tem said...

Or try to trade it in on a new one and ask that they waive the penalty for turning the car in early. Sticks you with a VW for 3 more years, but at least it isn't that specific one.

tem said...

Yeah send it certified and make sure you put in the header who it is going to and include a lawyer. Even if that lawyer is Kod. They'll see you documented it with a paper trail to them and an attorney and might start to budge.

tem said...

Or take them some resume paper and tell them that if they don't like it that they can use the paper to update their resume.

Beth said...

"Or take them some resume paper and tell them that if they don't like it that they can use the paper to update their resume."
