First Week


Wow..ok..no sex post on this one,just update on my fan-fuckin-tastic new job..Just completed first week of training,which consisted of...orientation..very cool folks..then training on a system that basically is for people who never worked the system before..I,on the otherhand worked this particular system for 19 yrs and now I have to do this as if I never did it before..oh well..as I always do I will Master it and then when it is phased out (the rumor mill is sayin..)then I go back to working the system as I did for those many years..the workers there,from the looks of everyone that I have seen,are actually LOVING this job..I suspect I will be one of those smilers as well,well I had one all week but that was excitement smiles..I am going to love this job..woo hoo

2nd day,we have to lock in our vacation time,it does not roll over to the following year,use it or lose it!! But I said,vacation? I am a new hire,I have to wait a year at least,right? Oh no not here,you are eligible for your vacation from the date you are hired,so pick them..I got the day after Turkey day and the whole week between christmas and New years!! Likeing this job even more now LOL..Come January,we get to pick our vacation for the year again..okkkkk whatever you say you are the BOSS!..

The big thing was..I actually drove to work by myself..no biggie to most of you..but I am a brand spanking new driver and pretty much only know my neighborhood..but the roommate did not like my hours and basically said,take the car you are on your own and off I go on the veterans..white knuckling it all the way but made it in one piece LOL..after that,piece O' cake and I am really proud of myself..but,when I learned of the possible weather sitch yesterday..made her take to me work..just did not want to drive in torrential rain on the veterans..I am sure I will one day,just did not want to deal yesterday..so she did that for me yay!!
Today,going to put a deposit down to be put on a waitlist for an apartment..then lookin for a car sometime in the next month,more likely will lease one..and my life becomes my own again,as it was before 9/11..independence,I am knocking on your door baby..LET ME IN!!!!

Hmmm... I would give more thought to your decision to lease a car. I haven't spoken to one person making less than fifty-thousand a year who didn't regret leasing their cars.

On that note, if you're making more than fifty-thousand a year, go for it.

Let me drive. I like the view

maybe we can talk more about that at the M&G,I was going to go with leasing because about 15 people said that would be the best way to go..so who the fuck knows LOL??

they offered me a lease option on my truck..they REALLY push leasing these days. I'd rather own my car eventually than rent it.
