I have PD2 updated and ready to roll if you want to try to get a game together over the long weekend. I haven't played in 5 years but i know how to follow orders and carry bags

I'll set up a PD channel in my discord https://discord.gg/bVA5BedN That's good for 24 hours or PM me on steam for a new link
What's your steam name? If you guys don't mind a terrible n00b, I could hop in at some points!

Way better than them canceling their planned orders. More work is always better than no work.

I generally agree with this statement, and since I had planned to work during that time frame anyway, no impact to me. Some of our personnel will be feeling it though.

In specific, this customer concerns me. They've continued to work outside of their existing system (using spreadsheets to manage instead of a forecast system), and they've blind sided us with immense short lead-time orders on several occasions. When we've communicated some level of difficulty in meeting the need-by date, they escalate until we've got a senior executive putting pressure on us to perform heroics.

I also suspect that since they've ordered large quantities of several parts of their system, they will abruptly (and with shortened lead time) realize they forgot to place orders for the rest, and need everything yesterday. This may go from a "we plan to close during these days" to "you will all be putting in 80 hours this week" and I am concerned my company will be killed by its own success, and by the lack of preparation on the part of our customer.

You have to be flexible to be successful these days. Sometimes it sucks but overall it is for the better.

I'z up.

It's foggy with frost.

Nice combination.

Sitting in the Jeep dealership. Had to take the Grand Cherokee in. The CEL is on and the check gas cap light is on. Both related. Plus the sunroof is acting up.

When I worked at Elliott. We had customers that would leave stuff sit for a year. Then all of a sudden wanted it done. Spent a lot of time working 12 hour days with no days off for weeks at a time. It was feast or starve.

True. I'll take the weight of responsibility and occasional worry over unemployment any day!

With everything that’s going on I’m sure most everyone at the shop was looking forward to some down time and enjoying the family and the holidays. I remember similar situations when I worked production, and canceling planned down time during the holidays was just a bummer, then add the state of politics and Covid...... just saying, ( minus the Covid ) been there, done that. Even though the money was great, wasn’t a fun time.
Folks just need time to decompress
And from my personal experience the people who made the decisions all were able to enjoy their holidays and family.
It still eats at me 23yrs. later

Rusty,
How’d that test turn out ? I’m just assuming it was negative since you’re at the dealership.
