The New and Improved MEME thread.
I lost a Job to Affirmative Action .


Martin was retiring from the " Business " . Ran the Scene Shop at Channel 9 in Los Angeles .

I was slated to be His replacement .

Not much to do there actually . Lots of Tools . Everything a Scene Shop could ask for . . .

All that was needed on set were a few infinity sweeps and an occasional repaint .

The Lighting Designer brought Me in during a Studio Rebuild and change from what ever it was to a 24 Hour NEWs Venue . Lots of Electric Install . Dressing Rooms for the " Talent " was a particular need . Every Chair hadda have a dozen blessed plugs .

Somehow I went from a 90 Day Hire to 3 years on the Lot . Simple fact , I knew the Craft and everyone there was Directors Guild . Few even knew how to hold a hammer , let alone Rig a Lift Rail .

So , Management liked Me . That was a first .

Seems I was credited with saving the yearly Sheriffs Marathon . One of those 24 Hour cry for money things . 3 year contract the Sheriff was cancelling .

The prior year was a miserable production . Set in the Spruce Goose Hanger . Probably the darkest location in Los Angeles .

I was Handing at a Grip Shop that provided lighting , for what it was worth . That dark hole just swallows light . Really poor choice of Venue .

The NIXI Tote just hung in space .

Sheriff decided that was that and the next year was the last year .


So , in the mean time I ended up in the Channel 9 Shop .

Took Me weeks to get the Sheriff to provide a photo of Their Badge .

Built the NIXI into the Badge Number space and scaled up from there . Huge prop .

Painted the thing with Metallic Lacquer on the first day of NO LACQURE Spray in L. A. . Low Rider Shops also .

Pretty decent presentation if I do say so Myself .

Anyway , the Sheriff was delighted and renewed the Contract .

I was set to take Martin 's position .

Then Disney bought the place and Affirmative Action !

1 White employee for every 2 " Disadvantaged " = Female , Minority , Handicaped .

Boy were the Mexicans surprised They were White in Disney eyes .

Unions fought about it and I was Odd Man Out . Private Contractor and all that .


Hurray for HOLLY wood . . . Oh How I Love That Jolly Holly Wood . . . . .


Facepalm

Are you aching?  For some bacon?  Rather, some pork rinds?

I wasn't having to make them up.  You mean we have to make up conspiracy theories now?
