Good luck with the new gig, but I'm with wolfking, give the stuff back and move on.  I'm not sure why it's "getting harassed" when you have items including a car that are owned by the old company. Sounds like they have some right to harass you for their stuff back.  If you can work a way for them to come and get it, cool, but don't be annoyed when they keep harassing you until their items are returned.

Exactly.  It's their property.  You can't get annoyed for them wanting them back.  I would just say that you are not doing any fills and that you sever all ties.

And don't, under ANY circumstances, drive that fucking car now that you're off the clock.  Don't even move it around the driveway.  Give it back, dude, there's no good that can come from that.  If I'm them, I go over it with a fine tooth comb, and you're being dinged for EVERYTHING wrong with it.

I'm with everyone on this but Stadler hit the nail on the head, you do not under any circumstance, want to have anything to happen to the car or any other company belongings.

Then they either need to come get it, or when I have a day free and when my girlfriend is free , pay me to drive  it out there. That's not going to be for at least a week.

Like I said. 2-3 hour drive one way.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Dude, where do you seriously think this attitude is going to get you?  I'm a stubborn prick, but damn mate, no offence to you and try not to take this the wrong way but come down from that high horse before he trips over and breaks a leg. 

And don't, under ANY circumstances, drive that fucking car now that you're off the clock.  Don't even move it around the driveway.  Give it back, dude, there's no good that can come from that.  If I'm them, I go over it with a fine tooth comb, and you're being dinged for EVERYTHING wrong with it. 

Exactly.  They will looks for anything and try and fuck you up Jay.  And there will be nothing you can do about it.  If something goes down, you won't win and have no leg to stand on.

Just curious why you didn't turn everything in over the last 2 or so shifts?  2-3 hour drive is irrelevant, it's not your shit.  Are you not concerned that they might have some grounds to report you with possession of stolen goods?

Jay... take a hint.  We're all your pals here, and literally no one is 'on your side' on this matter.  You're in the wrong here.  How did you get the car in the first place?  Did they drop it off at your house?

I'd feel paranoid as all shit and would have made sure on my last shift they had everything so nothing could get traced back to me in any way.  Even if for some reason I was going to do a fill or two, I would have preferred to make sure everything was returned so something like this wouldn't happen.

I found out when I got there 2 hours before the doors opened. The tour buses were there.  Last minute decision obliviously.

Had dinner with Rumborak.   Just disappointed not seeing Opeth.   Never saw them before.

And after reminding my boss twice I was taking today off he forgot.   Him, the quality manager and my bosses boss is at my site.

The one who put the ultimatum to me. Not looking good.

Periphery was having issues too, I think they were missing one band member on stage Sunday night and the singer was just getting over laryngitis as well. They had to play their previous show instrumentally with no vocals. I would've preferred an instrumental set in Brooklyn as well  :biggrin: :lol

The car was used at the account I ran that we lost in October. They told me to hold on to for a few days (as it's full of shit from the account) and sometime I'd go to the office and actually swap them for another vehicle for my position. That never happened. I'm also not driving it. Not touching it. When I have the day off during the week (next week?) I will take it to them. Or they can come get it.


In other news... I'm really enjoying the culture at my new job. I'm just not the biggest fan of the open office plan. So many distractions :lol

Open office desk plan is terrible, one of our sister buildings has an open floor plan as well as our trading floor and it's just noisy and distracting.

No need. The car has a live GPS that pings constant whenever it's running.

It wasnt running that day.  Well I hope you dont get screwed but taking a pic of the odometer is no effort to help cover your ass. You're an adult so you can handle the situation as you see fit.

Now that I think of it... There is so much communication between the different teams (dealer services, sales, and Customer service...) having cubicles would not be feasible. At least the sales team has half cubes, because they are important :lol

That'll be me in a year or so once I get my insurance license.

All our communication if via slack for basic chats and webex for video conferencing.  People hardly talk face to face anymore as people work remotely (like myself) or when in the open office, just keep quiet and chat via slack than walking up to the person.  Our open office environment is actually really quiet and awkward.  I'm so glad I don't report to the office.  Part of me feels like working remotely I am losing some of my social skills at work... but then again, I don't think anyone is getting those skills anymore even when surrounded by people.  It's quite odd to me.
