I took off the morning so I could go with my wife

I took Monday morning off of work, even though my boss was very unhappy with my decision.

I didn’t know that my wife was going to have a doctor’s appointment until Friday afternoon.

I knew that my boss was going to have a fit. The guy always complains if we don’t give two weeks notice when we need to have a day off. I reminded my boss that it was only going to be the morning. He was still aggravated, because I was supposed to help unload two large trucks that were filled with pallets of rebar, rebar tie wire, and other rebar supplies. I didn’t schedule the doctor’s appointment and there was no way for my wife to change the time. The appointment was at 10:00 a.m. We waited almost 45 minutes for the doctor. By the time my wife was finished, it was lunch time. I decided to have some lunch with my wife before I went back to the job site. I honestly thought the guys would be finished on loading all of the rebar, rebar tie wire, and double loop wire ties. My boss was kind enough to wait to unload the shipment until I got there later that afternoon. I spent the rest of the afternoon helping Jack and Charlie unload the truck. I knew my boss was trying to make a point, but it didn’t bother me that he waited to unload the truck. I was happy that I got to go to the doctor’s appointment with my wife and see a picture of our baby for the first time.

The school called with really bad news

Monday through Friday, you can find me at work.

  • I am the foreman at a metal plant that creates products like rebar, rebar tie wire, and double loop wire ties.

I’ve been with the company since both of my kids were young. I think my 10-year anniversary will be sometime next year. I started off in the packaging department and I moved to the plant foreman position a couple of years ago. I work during the day and I am home every weekend with my family. The kids are getting to be older now and they absolutely need to have both my wife and I around on the weekends when they can get into trouble. My oldest boy is turning 13 in a couple of weeks. I am certainly worried that he is going to get into some trouble. When I was working at the rebar and rebar tie wire plant on monday, my boss came to find me with a phone call. He told me that the phone call was from the school where my 13-year-old attends. The principal was on the phone. He tried to contact my wife first so he didn’t have to bother me at the rebar and rebar tie wire plant. He had already left a few messages for my wife. I knew she was at the spa with her friends and her phone was probably off. I left work to go to the school. The principal suspended my 13 year old for 3 days because he was fighting. I had to take the rest of the day off.

Using higher quality rebar that will last in coastal areas

The moisture seeps into the hole and then spreads to the rest of the rebar that is underneath the coating

Depending on where you live and the kind of environment it poses, you’ll be forced to approach long term building projects in different ways. For instance, roads in the north are constantly susceptible to freezing, thawing, and refreezing every single year. Cracks form in both concrete and asphalt and will line the highways in these areas. When I lived up north, I distinctly remember the feeling of hitting all of those bumps in the road while careening down the interstate at 70 to 80 miles per hour. The best thing the federal highway commission could do was fill the cracks with more asphalt, creating the distinctive ridge-shaped bumps that line the highways up north. But in the south near the coast lines, there are other stresses from the environment that pose serious risk for concrete and reinforced concrete alike. If you’re going to build something with reinforced concrete near the coasts, you better use corrosion resistant rebar tie wire or you could have a catastrophe after so many years of weathering and moisture exposure. That’s why some building contractors will utilize epoxy or PVC coated rebar, but those products are dangerous if the outer coating gets punctured during installation. The moisture seeps into the hole and then spreads to the rest of the rebar that is underneath the coating. This can lead to catastrophic corrosion and is extremely hard to fix. Otherwise you can use galvanized or stainless steel rebar tie wire for your reinforced concrete projects in coastal areas, but you will feel the extra cost burn a hole through your wallet.

I donated my leftover rebar to the college’s art studio

When I quit my part time handyman business to go back to work my old company full time, I had a lot of old equipment in a storage unit that I needed to find uses for so I could get rid of the expense.

A lot of the storage locker was filled with containers of paint and stain of all colors, mainly from jobs I would do for local residents.

Aside from paint, I also had a lot of roofing materials because those jobs are in high demand as well. Coincidentally, my cousin was interested in becoming a handyman himself and I called him and told him to accompany me to my storage unit to discuss donating my remaining supplies to him. To no surprise, my cousin was ecstatic with this news and we arranged a meetup time later in the week. He was amazed by the boxes of tools, paint cans, roofing materials, and wire spools that I had ready to go in the dumpster. The only supplies he didn’t take were the extra coils of rebar tie wire and the double loop ties that are stored next to them. I have traditional black carbon steel rebar tie wire, stainless steel rebar tie wire, and galvanized rebar tie wire. I even have 14 gauge up to 18 gauge rebar tie wire. After he left, I realized that I could donate the additional rebar to the local college’s art studio. When I was a student myself, my friend Jonathan used black rebar to make these amazing geometric sculptures. He used welding equipment to bend and conjoin sections of rebar, ending in beautiful pieces that caught the eyes of people as far north as Toronto.
