I busted ass yesterday to get numerous things done include a rear narrowing project that I didn't really have time for and just sorta crammed in. I called a friend last weekend to see if he could do some welding for me to finish off the multiple projects I was running. His response was sure, no problem, call me Friday to set up a time. I called him Friday, he said to give him a call Saturday and it could be done Saturday night...and if all else failed, show up at 8 a.m. on Sunday and we'd take care of it then. So I try his phone somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 times on Saturday to no avail. I figure screw it, go play sober taxi until 3 a.m. and go to bed. Get up early Sunday, load up (it was storming the night before), and head out. It's a 45 minute drive to his house so I had to haul my sorry arse outta bed early and I'm exhausted. I get there...no sign of life. Nobody in the shop, nobody in the house, nobody answering his cell phone. Wait for an hour...nothing...another hour...nothing. Finally left and headed home to put the truck away for another week and called a different guy on a lark. He said he was with Adam (guy #1) the night before and he was pretty trashed and had no clue who he went home with. I'm not sayin he shouldn't have gone out and had a good time, but I've been making sure he's had time for two weeks now and not answering his phone and not being home was a huge waste of my time, sleep, and a half tank of diesel. Now I still have welding to be done and I don't trust this guys word. Besides the fact that he's the only one I know that can weld sheet metal well and I've gotta put the wheel tubs back in yet. I'm sick of dealing with clowns who don't keep their word, I'm gonna pick up a welder next time I go home and try and tap into the skills from H.S. metals and see if I can't get something accomplished.
