Don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining.

So the Trans Canada pipe line is going through here. With all the lay offs, there were a ton of welders who were hopeful for jobs. Well they've pretty much said kiss our asses...only nicer. You have to be in the union - and here in South Dakota that's a swear word. Honestly I'd join one - at this point I just want to work and pay my bills.

The local "important" people think people should tailor their hours to the workers because they work 10 to 12 hours a day. Um I worked 10 to 12 hours a one tailored their hours to me, or the other people I worked with. Not to mention the fact that people are saying how it's this great economic stimulus for Yankton. Sure it is, for the next 5 months, I hope the people who are counting on this influx are smart enough to plan for the exodus as well. But I don't think the foresight is there, and quite frankly it's PISSING ME OFF!

I am an eternal optimist in general. I know I'll find work again, I know this isn't going to be forever. I am lucky enough to have married a pessimist who thought of hard times when we were house shopping. This is why we're not endanger of losing our home like so many others.

I just see where this whole thing is going to end up - the pipeline will be built - the workers will be on their merry way - and the "important" people will go "Oh woe is me" yet again, and I'm SICK TO DEATH of that crap. I just want to walk up to them, smack them in the back of the head and yell - "PLAN AHEAD YOU TWIT". But I won't - however I have decided to not remain silent when asked what I think of the whole thing is. MUAHAHAHAHA
