The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Sometimes, I seriously hate my job. Other times, like right now, I seriously like my job. I had a Captain call me up complaining that something he requested a week ago wasn't done yet. I told him that I had been given a higher priority project. He started ranting and raving. I told him he needed to calm down if he expected to get anywhere with the project I was working on for him. He got even madder and started cussing at me so I hung up on him. About 5 minutes later, he shows up in my office. Between the time I hung up on him and he walked into my office, a Lt. Col. whom I was working on a more important project for calls. When the Captain walks in, first words out of his mouth: "Who the **** do you think you are?" Right after that from over the phone I hear: "Hand the phone over to whoever that is." The look on the Captains face went from pissed off to oh **** in about .3 seconds and then he handed the phone back to me, apologized then turned and walked out. When I put the phone back up to my ear, the Lt. Col. says: "I'll have to call you back, I have to take care of something that just came up."

haha, my wife works in an office that is 90% officers. She just got a new capt that is over her programs and he is having issues. Her old capt told her that he is not too bright and she needs to dumb things down a little for him. She basically told him once she starts getting a capt's paycheck, she will dumb it down to him. haha

I'll dig it out sat morning and I can get some better pics and measurements if you want them. I think the brakes are inertia activated. Let me know if you are remotely interested. Then I'll prioritize it.

I'm a little worried actually. After talking on the phone with Jared today he said it was $1100 in parts. I've been figuring it was all warranty covered but I didn't ask. I guess I'll find out when I pick it up.

I don't know for sure but I think you just have the deductible.

It sounds like your wife and I would get along at work. The biggest issue people have with me is I was flightline for many years. I have a mouth and a temper. When I get going, I don't typically care what rank someone is. I have had my fair share of trouble because of it. Ever told a Chief he is a ****ing idiot? I have. Just after I got here, I landed myself in the shirts office for asking an officer in a meeting if he went to college on a football scholarship because it sure as hell wasn't academic.
