Hear no knocking see no knocking know no knocking ......

Congrats on the ****ty job trip. What exactly will you be supervising?

Oh no , its a chunk of hardened steel that has been beat to $hit . We were actually sitting there looking at it once we pulled the VC off and heard something land beside us . ''We were not doing anything or touching anything '' and looked over and saw it sitting there . Dont know if it popped out or what but I dont see any shavings or impact marks ANYWHERE but as soon as the VC was off it made no more noise but it was not hitting the VC ???????????
Putting it back together now and fire it up here shortly and see whats up

Don't know for sure, it will be water treatment, I just don't know if it will be waste or freshwater.

How often does a person land two different jobs in one day? And now I have a dilemma. With the economy the way it is, I feel guilty as hell that now I'm going to have to turn someone down, but working both is out of the question, and the city job is a better fit for my lifestyle...

So... Even telling the truth: "I got a better offer", is just going to make me feel like crap.

I'm sure they have a list of candidates whose day they can brighten. You should feel lucky and/or good.

It's a bit of a bummer though. That kind of work is something I excel at. But... An hour and a half commute, no bennies other than the paycheck, plus wild as hell work hours, AND trying to get custody of my son?

Example of the work hours: I was expected to be in at 6 tomorrow, and off at 2-4. Thursday, midnight to noonish, and back on Tuesday evening at 8, to work all night until Friday morning. And three hours commute both ways.
