Today was just a hell day.
Left the house headed for NYC, left my laptop power cord.
I had to drive into NYC... thats generally a cause for bitching right there.
I have a battery replacement in 2 UPS units... 120 batteries.
The job site is at the Western Union bldg. Its that big building in the background here...

I am due there at 3pm to receive my batteries, I get there at 2:30.
I am informed that the delivery company isnt union nor are they insured to deliver to that building.
Not that they are uninsured... they are not insured FOR THAT BUILDING.
Yea... that area is union and BS central.
The freight elevators there are union run.
You dont get to go on and punch the button to your floor.
You get on, tell the union elevator operator what floor... and HE pushes the button for you.
He will not be there for 15 minutes or so every couple of hours... he will be on break.
Oh yea... and you wont be able to use the elevator for an hour when he goes to lunch.
My batteries got there at 3... and it took me till 5 to find out that no... they wont be allowed on site.
So, I drove to NYC today... a place I HATE... for nothing.
The batteries will be picked up by a different company that does normal deliveries at the building.
So... I will be starting this job 23 hours late.
Also... I am sitting in a hotel room not getting paid, instead of working.

I have to find parking in lower Manhattan for the next 2 days... that pisses me off.
I will be working with a guy who barely speaks english... that pisses me off.
I am staying in Newark... THAT pisses me off...

I DID get to see punches thrown in traffic by a couple of dudes in suits.
I got to see a chick in a halter top, sweat pants, and high heels.
Neon spandex and mall hair is still alive and well in NJ.

Just fuck this day... fuck this day in the ass.

I been to NYC ONCE[/i]. The best about my trip was at JFK airport when I got aboard a United DC-10 in the first class section and flew back to Seattle.

It was the worst three day trip in my life. Your description is the prefect description about NYC. I did not have union problems. However my god NYC ha more fruits and nuts than California.

First Class? My mother is a retired Flight Attendant and before I turned 27 I got to fly anywhere United flew for free.

DC-10? Yes, I'm old

What the HELL?
