It never fails...

...That during the coldest night already this winter, 30 F, we not only get a locomotive with no cab heater, and we have to work the elevator the farthest from the mill. 17 miles to be exact.
Again, I say What the fuck!

It is 12 degrees here. I work inside a heated office though, so I guess I can't complain.

I have no idea where the closest mill is. I do know where the closest mall is. Perhaps you meant mall. I would be angry too if I had to be 17 miles away from the closest mall.

I suppose that meant you were a meat popsicle!

I suppose that means you were a meat popsicle. I shiver just thinking about it!

OH NO! NO heater is grounds for quitting. Some things are priority.

well, since trains ride on tracks I say you use a little whiskey to help stay warm.

Oh come on, did you really expect any less?

Reba: Be careful, you might get one of those fatal paper cuts

Mist: The mill is only 17 miles, the closest mall is 60 miles. You couldn't live here.

Weatherchazer: I prefer the term "Rangertomsicle"... And shiver in a good way or bad way?

Tsduff: I toughed it out. Quitting is not an option.

Rhs: Sounds good in theory, but booze and trains should never mix.

Ecblade: Ok, YOU come out and ride the running board on my locomotive going 20 MPH at 30 F with the humidity at 100% and then I can call you a wuss! LOL

Jay: Actually, not really.

It's Murphy's Law, Tom. ;)
