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.
Don't feel bad, someone else who needs that job will get it.

I wish I could find something around here, there's not much though. I'm not too picky either.

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.
That's crazy!

I love my hours i'll be getting... 3-430... or more accurately... 0300-1630.mon thru sat. Orientation at 10. Trip, they're still hiring, if you want to live in true freedom. Plus, you'd only be 570 miles or so to Cinder!

Blah! That really sucks. I have to work out this custody thing before I can do anything like that.

No, I mean it sucks that I can't just pack up and move. But I agree, southern boys don't do too good in the cold. But I've promised her friends and family I would do my best to make a trip up that way so they can meet me, before she takes off to come down here.

I just had an epiphany. Right now, here, alone... I can get whatever freaking flavor of ice cream I want and there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it.

Oh hell yeah. Rocky road, here I come!

Well Trip look at like this , $hit will always happen and it will always flow down hill so the treatment plant will be forever job security

Im blessed that the boat business has held on for all these years , hung in through droughts and recessions . Here lately I have seriously considered shutting it down . I have already shut down most of the mobile work and between my health and stress , frankly I just dont give a piss anymore and customer service has dropped a bit . I prob wont do anything till after I finish winterizations this year .
About 2 years ago I gave up jetskis and I did not realize they accounted for over half my income so that hurt . Then this year I wont be doing a major lake due to distance and the tight ass yuppies who dont want to pay alot .
My plan is to shut down , change names and merge with dads company and find a eligible tech who can do the work I do while I sit back on my ass for a change and make money . Or I could just sell it all to my competitor and be done with it altogether .

That's pretty much how I figured it. Everybody poops. Except in West Monroe Louisiana, apparently they turn it back into drinkable water. It doesn't go back into the drinking water though, it gets pumped to the paper mill. At least, that's what I'm told...
