As a new day dawns and I want to PUKE

Good morning campers, as the excuses pile up as to why I get to sit on my hands AGAIN (let the whining begin) I guess I'll just think about my all the things at home and try to figure out what I'll do with todays earnings after Uncle Sugar gets his cut.
1 wish List for the 250 keeps getting bigger
2 "Honey Do" list is way to big already and continues to grow

It took them 4 days to cut 4 pieces of I-Beam and weld 6 pieces of uprights to it and now I get to wait for them to EVALUATE if it'll do the job. To top it off the crew that came on the same day I did is leaving today and the locals have a national holiday starting today till Monday. Guess I'll get another book read today. Let's see actuall days doing absolutely nothing, 9 and counting, days piddling around and trying to look busy, 10, days actually productive 9.

Kind of sounds like when I was initiated in the Clampers...I was given a hack saw to cut fire wood...When the process seemed too fast, the blade was reversed.

They're afraid to let me go to the beach and stay in the hotel because they think I'll go get on a plane and leave. If I leave the country I have to get a new Visa and Work Permit ($400.00 and about a month to 6 weeks). These guys think I'm crazy as every other feild rep has told them to pack sand about coming back but me. Every time they say the equipment is F***ed Up I show them where their support systems and operators are the problem. Here I go again on one of my Tirades.

Got to have the passport or you can't get through the airport. My tickets a E-Ticket so that's not the problem. I carry a company Mastercard with a 20k limit refreshed every 4 weeks so

Ah no and no and definetly NO WAY. I got in trouble buying a digital camera for a job one time and buying someone elses airline ticket. They call it a T&L card (travel and living). So for travel, hotels and food ONLY. And we get audited every 3 months so it's got to stay tight.
