My own place of work come out pretty much on top every day.
One example whilst doing a shaft/fixture alignment check.
Me: Can't use a DTI (instrument for checking) because the mounting is unsteady, will have to make a special mounting to gain accurate readings.
Manager: Are you sure?
Me: I wouldn't have told you otherwise, are you doughting my abilities!
Manager: I'll have a word with the technical director
Me: So what you want me to do whilst I wait for a decision?
Manager: Continue what you're doing
Me: OK but find out soon as I don't want to be waisting my time.
This conversation took place Monday Morning and after several reminders I was told today to scrap all the 350 readings I'd taken over 2 days and start again
after I'd made up some new tooling to hold the DTI steady
I might as well stayed at home or been out fishing or something.
Roll on the weekend.
