    Why is it that all week I've been wearing long sleeved shirts to work, and the plant has been a sauna, but tonight I wear just a t-shirt and the place is colder than an icebox?

    It takes a special level of mechanical skill to misalign an assembly held together with roll pins....

    You neglected to say what the roll pin aligned. If the roll pin is the proper size then alignment should be correct since in most cases this is their function. A
    to small or damaged pin can cause misalignment. A good Mechanic would have been aware of either case and would not have chanced a misalignment.

    Nawwww, It's EASY!
    I remember a few "techs" at IBM who regularly screwed stuff up ...

    1) Just REMOVE a few pins - allows wide "adjustments" to alignment.

    2) Not "adjustable" enough --- pull out the B_H (Big Flippin Hammer)
    . . and *speak* to the assembly ... all roll pins *BEND* (or break) - eventually.

    For the past month I have been trying to get several contractors to do some minor work for me. After an initial visit and price quote, we set up a time for the work to be done. Either they call and postpone or just don't show up at all and don't return phone calls.

    I called a collection agency to get them to contact some of the businesses past due accounts. They never called me back.

    Last night I had an appointment to meet with a realtor at a house I wanted to buy---the agent was a no show.

    Doesn't anyone want to WORK?
