    Angry Another mess.

    Well i arrived here in China on thursday afternoon. When i was in Holland the friday before i heard the system thats coming here was still not shipped. So i now heard today the tool is still not shipped. And they are thinking of pulling us out of here. But yet again only half a story from these people. I dont know if they will send us home or to a job we have local in Taiwan or what.
    I dont want to go running around China if the tool arrives and i'm hundreds of miles away stealing bits off the great wall. I would rather be at home with the family.
    I emailed my boss asking him for some first hand information. And that i feel like a mushroom yet again.
    I'm going mad looking the 4 walls of this hotel room.

    I'M A SIGNUM OWNER GET ME OUT OF HERE.

    Brewery, a, in, pi$$ up come to mind.


    On a much lower scale I was checking out all our contractor method statements last week. I came across one that I'd not heard of but after asking around discovered it was for the, "plant lady"

    Turns out that three years ago we had a big visit to the site so they hired three plants for the reception area. Basically glorified Yukkas.

    The cost was, wait for it. £1000 plus vat per year. For three plants.

    This included her turning up to dust and feed them once a quarter.

    They have now been returned.

    Got it in one Steve.
    It just annoys the hell out of sitting in a hotel. It costs them a fortune but they don't seam to care to a "point". I would must rather sit at home with the family "it only costs them my salary then" If i go shopping and buy a bottle of shampoo for 2 quid and forget about it and put the whole shopping bill on my expense's they pull me saying they will deduct it from me to SAVE. "Cost cutting my a$re"

    Like is said i feel like a mushroom. Not quite a Yukka, that was feed and wiped down each quarter and keep in the sunlight.

    1000 quid for a year. I'm buy a shed load of these a renting them out. HAHAHAHA

    Well we will see what's happening probably on Monday. But i know they will still pi$$ about making a decision.

    Just got the email from the boss.
    System to be shipped tommorow. Should arrive onsite Friday, Saturday, Sunday depending on customs. So it looks like at least 7 days wasted.
    Next thing will be can you stop a little longer as the system was delayed.
    They can go and bollicks on that.
    Seen the planning aswell blo ody nightshift

    Lankawi very nice i've been their last year. I was working in Kulim on the mainland.
    Yes mate i'm really getting fed up now with the working abroad traveling etc. I'm not to bad if it's head down ar4e up and the work get's done then home, thats ok but when i'm sitting about it kills me. And i miss my little one far to much. But the money is great.
    I know money is not everything. But it helps a great deal.
    I am looking for work in the uk with some traveling if needed. But nothing yet.
