Re: [Histonet] Can You Beat This?

Here I go, flaming time.
Are some of you seeing more techs just doing their job and that's it? I have 
a couple of techs that have accomplished more in their short time that they 
have been in the field than I did. Then, I have a couple of techs that just 
do enough to get by. Talking to them, documenting, over looking them for pay 
raises just doesn't affect them.
    Today, my PM supervisor and I were getting one of our VIPs ready. The 
molds were left in after cleaning. He pulled the trays out and smelled 
xylene. He called me over and I took a sniff (a big long one at that). I 
pulled out the cleaning alcohol and it was full of xylene. I went to dump it 
and spilled xylene all over me. I wasn't happy. My bigger question was why 
didn't the machine catch the vacuum leak? I don't know any more.
I think it's time to open up Papa Joe's Bikini House of Pizza.

Subject: [Histonet] Can You Beat This?

I've gotten some interesting, funny, and scary stories about Ye Olde
Days.  As one of my old bosses used to say, "If I'd known I was going to
live this long, I'da taken better care of myself." Too bad all these
stories about how we used to do things put us at risk!  This should be a
lesson to all the newbies out there to wear gloves, masks and question
stuff, right?  We shouldn't be afraid of what we do, just very cautious
of what might come back to bite us.  For example, one of my first jobs
while training was changing the Technicon Duo - the dioxane vats.
