RAT RODS

 

A Rat Rod is an old vehicle recreated into a artistic pile of machinery.

The run of the Rat Rods at the Automotive Museum is almost over.  George is enthusiastic when a show first starts.  After a few months he’s burned out.  He’s reached that stage with the Rat Rods.  The museum still hasn’t found a replacement for Poolie, but the volunteers plug on with minimal supervision.

I heard a bit about her before I got there, and I even got a chance to read her Linkedin page.  I wasn’t ready for her constant talk about all the boards she is on or her many questions about what I do.  I gather from the staff gossip that she was upset about the Facebook page…then was told I did it.  Later she was upset that the books were so messy.  Of course they are if I haven’t been there a week.  Then she was told I was the one who did the books.  Later she was upset that so many customers stayed in back shopping the bookshelves.

I just did my job with the books then moved on to sorting clothes.  Gossip again tells me that she has alienated most of the Monday and Tuesday staffing.  When I mentioned all this to G, he commented that perhaps she was afraid.  I’ve been through a lot of managers here, and this sounds about right.

  • 0910: Marked my ballot and got it ready to mail. Heavy on the dems and fiscal conservatives.
  • 1030: Hair cut at: It’s so long it resembles that of a mad woman.  Maybe I am a mad woman.
  • 1230: Discovered the front tires are out of camber on the truck.  Made an appointment for new front tires, replacing the spare with the better of the two fronts.
  • Have a new Anne Perry to take with me to read.

I’m confused. Is the fearful manager Poolie? Or a new one? Segue from museum to thrift store?

The fearful manager is my new manager at the shop.  Poolie was G’s old manager at the Automuseum and is much missed.
