Happy Friday friends! It’s true…football 2014 has started.
Have you made your fantasy football picks yet? Just so you know, I had to stop playing fantasy football. It’s not that I’m better than it, nor was I actually very good at playing; it is just too big of a distraction from the games I really want to watch, so this year I am NOT going to play.
Now with that being said, I know that just about every one of my friends is in a league or two and I’m definitely not “normal” in that sense. In fact, some of my buddies think that I’m absolutely nuts. Hey guys, you’re just going to have to deal with it!
For the rest of you that are either NFL fans or not, it’s hard to not notice that the football season has started. In fact we are running a football promotion with discounts on every repair service that we offer through our newsletter that is going out to tens of thousands of customers today. Keep an eye out for it, because there will be a special coupon just for you football fans out there. It’s a great time to get hat iPad or Computer repaired. Well you don’t actually have to be a fan, but you might notice a common “pigskin” theme hit your email inbox shortly. Not signed up for our newsletter yet? Sign up now!
Until then, have a great afternoon and I’ll be back soon with more great Mission Repair info.
We have to change our Mission repair “workplace accident” sign to “ZERO” accident free days starting today. Until now, we had over 2,000 accident free days at Mission Repair, which is a number that I am truly proud of! I pride myself on having a safe work place… But today marks a day in our company history. Lennie Martin actually pushed a screwdriver through his index finger. In one side, and out the other. I would show you a picture but it’s just a bit to graphic.
It’s interesting timing too, because Matthew Vaughan actually smashed his finger in a wind-blown door while on vacation a couple of weeks ago. So now I have two technicians with faulty index fingers. Here’s a shot of them this afternoon:
Matthew on the left, Lennie on the right.
Even though I’m not terribly proud that I had to rush to the emergency room today with Lennie, I was compelled to take a pic of my battered team members that are pushing though the pain. Matthew has had a couple of surgeries but Lennie’s injury was surprisingly “simple” (the doctor just numbed up his finger, and pulled the screwdriver out. I have it on video, it’s interesting). But it makes me reflect on the fact that we have been very injury free due to our safe environment, good training and scheduled safety meetings.
So let’s hear it for the wounded warriors at Mission Repair that keep fighting the good fight to get your repair right! I hope I don’t have to post another “injury” update blog like this for a long time; but I’ll keep you in the loop!
Here’s my son Casey and his girlfriend at his Junior Prom last weekend, the pictures just came through on the prom website. Is he going to “love” that I posted this here on the Mission Repair blog? Nope. I will certainly hear about it tonight…but it’s not intended to make fun of him or to in any way demean the experience; my prom(s) were memorable and exciting!
It’s that time of year – that time that the “tuxedo guys” are doing some great business and all of the hair stylists are booked up on the weekends.
So Casey, good job buddy – you’ve just made an excellent life memory. You will look back at this picture and laugh at your hair, or your tux, or your something else…I guarantee it. If I had the guts I’d post a picture of my 80’s Junior prom, but I don’t. I’ll keep that to myself but all I have to say is “mullet” and we’ll leave it at that!

This is just a friendly reminder that with all of this crazy winter weather we’re getting around the USA (already) has already caused delays with shipping and deliveries.
As of today, FedEx has posted on their website that they have resumed normal operations:
But please be aware that we have already experienced delays in shipping this month and with a new batch of cold and icy weather headed our way this weekend, shipping delays seem inevitable. We will continue to try our hardest to get your devices in and out as fast as humanly possible at Mission Repair– the rest is up to Mother Nature. I’ll do my best to keep her happy.
