    I've been obsessing over my build since ordering as I'm still not in production 45 days after hitting the order button. I read this today in an article concerning working conditions at the Fremont factory.

    One worker, Michael Sanchez, described working on a section of the assembly line where the cars were suspended above him. To do his job, he had to look up and hold his arms above his head all day.

    “You can make it through Monday,” Sanchez told the Guardian. “You can make it through Tuesday. Come Wednesday you start to feel something. Thursday is pain. Friday is agonizing. Saturday you’re just making it through the day.”


    Now I can add hoping my production is on a Mon-Tues to my list of obsessions....

    Don't worry, the QC/QA team will find all the imperfections.

    O wait, what QC/QA team? :confused:

    All the more reason to get the alien dreadnought up and running as soon as possible. ;)

    So in the old days, you didn't want a Monday car (hungover workers), or a Friday car (slacking off for the weekend).... now we don't want end of week? So, the new target is Tuesday?! :confused:

    Factory runs 3 shifts, 7 days a week. I hope that doesnt mess up your plans for a Tuesday car.

    Wednesday cars are faster.
    Monday attendance is poor because it was rough weekend, so Tuesday is when the hungover people show up.
    The people preoccupied with home/money problems take Friday off so they collect their check on Thursday.
    Wednesday is the only day they are really paying attention.

    Admittedly I have my doubts, but now I'm hoping we're delayed because they don't have enough old packs to make them and we'll get 2170's instead....

    I'm sure they are waiting until the last possible moment to make our cars so we get whatever old tech before they roll out the new & improved 100Ds. ;)

    It's called a smear campaign for Union organizing.

    People with money problems take days off?
    No wonder they got problems

    I see you've never worked in factory. :D

    If you need money Thursday, you tell the boss you are going to be out Friday so you need your check today.
