It's An Ow-My-Back! Day

Picture Unrelated
We're crazy-go-nuts at the Duck U. Bookstore right now.  We just got our Big McLargeHuge shipment of used textbooks for the Fall Semester (one month away, dear heavens!).  Unfortunately, Mr Trucker-Delivery-Person decided that, since the loading dock was a couple of inches shorter than the back of his semi-trailer, he couldn't use his palletjack to bring the three pallets worth of boxes into the store... but he could stack the boxes on the loading dock just fine, and not one step closer to the Bookstore.

Gee, THANKS, Mr Trucker-Delivery-Person!  It's nice to know that we get the value we pay for with your company!

130-some-odd boxes.  Nearly two tons worth of books.  I'm an achy little duckie tonight.  Of course, tomorrow we get to open all these boxes, check in all the books, and put them on the shelves.  Whee...

Blogging will resume Friday, after I stop being so whiney and complainy.

1 The loading dock at the Duck U. Bookstore doesn't have a dock plate?

Jeeze-louise, at work I load pallets onto a truck that's a full foot shorter than the height of the floor of Receiving all the dang time.

2 There IS a dock plate!  Unfortunately, it's not really long enough, so it was sitting at about a 45-degree angle when positioned on the back of the truck... couldn't manuever the palletjack onto it without having it highcenter.

Yeah.  That.
