- When someone buys a S#%t box for a boat then expects that it should cost you money for everything you find wrong with it while you're doing repairs....I DIDN'T BUY THE BOAT :!:
- When someone tries to make their problems become your problems....IT'S NOT MY BOAT :!:
- I have no life or family so please feel free to bother me when ever it's convenient for you, especially when something critical happens like the door knob falling off...no worries, I'll just stop watching my little guy playing soccer and come right over :roll:
- When I get blamed for someone not being able to boat because I didn't come to fix their door knob :roll:
- When someone gets mad at you because it's costing them so much money to fix their boat...but hey they got a good deal buying it :roll:
- When you fix a carb and get blamed for the toilet not working :roll:
- When I do glass work, I should charge a lot less than the mechanical because "all you need is a 25 cent mask"...actual quote!
- When you winterize a boat and get blamed for the radio not working in the Spring..."Well you winterized it" :roll:
- When someone delays giving you an answer for a repair over the winter then blames you for missing half the boating season :P
- After an electronics install...read your owner's manual :evil:
- When someone hires you for a repair then expects that they should be able to have fun all summer long without paying :evil: I don't recall saying that I was a financial institution :?
- Oh, and I should absorb the cost to remedy a year after a satelite TV install because the satelite provider made a configuarion change :roll:

That's my rant for now, my eyes are getting tired from rolling :mrgreen:

People that think its ok to bounce of other boats when docking ! Not once but 3 times / 3 boats ( or more )

Its amazing how fast a boat stops when a bow rail hooks my anchor

Minorities that demand to be treated as everyone else. Then always point out their differences that make them a minority to began with.

Minorities that scream diversity and then scream bigotry when another's views don't meet their diverse view.. :!:

The new labor pool that feels like they are doing me a favor when I hire them and then feel like they can do my job better after 2 weeks.

What ever happened to talking about your qualifications and your desire to work here. Nowadays, Some of the first questions I get are- how many vacation days do you offer, or what are you paying.

I hope the answer is less of each the sooner they ask.
I needed a less expensive hobby, so I bought a boat!
