I love my job. I work for the Federal Aviation Administration. Unfortunately, I fear I may be losing it coming up soon, due to changes in "fiscal philosophy".

I consider myself very lucky. I love my job. I like what I do, all my co-workers, my hours, my boss, my place of business. Actually, if I have too many days off in a row, I start missing going to work. Yeah, okay, maybe I need a 'real life'.

Though, believe me, before this particular lab manager I am working under, I spent MANY years working for the world's worst alcoholic, woman hating lab manager. He was a nightmare. I vowed to myself I would outlast him where I worked even though we were exactly the same age. FINALLY, his bosses looked more closely at him and discovered ALL KINDS of billing errors and many, many neglected managerial duties. He and I were always at odds with each other and it was very stressful for me but I'm not the kind to sit back and let him kick me in the butt. He announced he was leaving (after 25 years of working his way up the ladder to where he was) on a day I was off. Coincidence, maybe.......but I think he didn't want to see me jump around like I just scored the winning TD at the Super Bowl. I didn't sign his going away card, contribute to a gift for him or attend his going away dinner that would have been a very nice meal paid for by our Pathologist. He has since been fired from 2 other jobs. One for coming to work drunk, one for not managing the lab properly. Go figure.................

The woman who manages the lab now is WONDERFUL. Firm but fair. She's exactly what the lab needed. In the 6 years or so she's been managing the lab, the improvements have been unbelievable.......in equipment and analyzers we get, supplies needed to do our job ('the drunk' tried to keep his budget low so he could show his 'higher ups' how he could run the lab and still save the hospital money), morale of the employees, classes and seminars on proper communication and conflict resolution, customer service to our patients and those working in other departments in the hospital. We have "peer interviews" so we get to help decide who works with us, we form committees to go out and look at new equipment when we need to buy a new analyzer so we can help decide what suits our needs and what we need to do our job properly.

I've gone on long enough. Let me just say, THIS WOMAN KNOWS HOW TO MANAGE.

Haha, it takes a pretty good distance to stop, really have to be careful when braking to prevent wheel lockup. When its wet and slick we are all the time drifting around corners.

Forget a bear, you should see what happens when a truck that big runs over a full size pickup truck...crunch

Oh no, I stay away from there, the temptation is too strong! I may have to give in one day though, the last time I played only for chips (charity event with the USO), and I would have walked away with over 3k if we'd been playing for keeps.
