Anyone know what that flexible stuff people use for hoses, wires, and the like in model kits is called?  Not having any luck finding it, so I'm probably using the wrong terms when searching. 

 

Armature wire? Or are you thinking of something plastic?

I see I've been beat to the wire gag?

Evergreen and Plaststruct both offer polystyrene rods and tubes in various sizes, some very small.

Want a laugh?

 

Customer returned some unneeded parts via the US Mail.  They were shipped from Florida, heading to Calgary Alberta.  They were shipped on the 16th.  Customer was asked to provide a tracking number yesterday, because they had not been received yet.  Cusotmer did one better than just giving us the tracking number  - sent us a photo of their receipt that included the info.  That's why we know the info below is not just a typo or wrong tracking number:

I painted an orange Demon a while ago, granted it's a Japanese Demon ( Oni) but still...

Maybe this can inspire/help you a bit?

Orange is an interesting color but I don't know if it's something I want to work with for demons. That said, you tempt me... :lol:

Speaking as someone who got the bright idea to paint this monstrosity, I can totally relate to your thinking :wacko:

Indeed.

 

I'm seriously debating about just taping a note to my boss' door that says "F- You, I quit! PS Eat my behind!" I'm just... Tired. There's too much going on right now and they keep making messes and I'm getting tired of being the one to clean it up.

COFFEE!!

 

Life is totally insanely busy. Got the NYC Marathon this weekend... Work is slammed, obviously. Waiting to hear back on a job interview I had with another company.... Mostly I need a nap. Or more coffee.

 

Hope everyone is well!

 

MORE COFFEE!!

Here's a suggestion:  Next time they hand you somebody else's mess to clean up just refuse, with the explanation that X made the mess, X should be responsible for cleaning it up.

You weren't hired as the company troubleshooter, you aren't being paid troubleshooter wages or benefits, and you are tired of being the company janitor for when other people make messes of their job.

Good Luck
