Posted by Melanie Takacs on Jun 20, 2017 2:38:47 PM

It was a typical week so far in the reg shop, and business had been steady so far for spring. Steve, the Regional Engineer, was in town and was set to arrive momentarily to get Rob’s advice with next year’s station designs. Rob was recently promoted to Operations Manager but he didn’t quite feel like he had enough experience yet, and was a bit uneasy about his new position. Steve on the other hand, was a seasoned P.

Well, maybe not a billion pieces... but there is not a key left on the keyboard, that's for sure. 

Joe, the natural gas field technician, is in a real pickle. 

 "Get a load of this!" He can hear his co-workers yelling back at the office while laughing at Joe's misfortune. 

"Ugh," he groans.  

The dog ate my homework, echoes in his head. But his version of the age old excuse is actually true, he thought, the pipe broke my laptop.

I know, you have questions.
