    One of the guys on my fire company mentioned to me the other day that they were hiring for maintence position at his job(he's head manintence). I asked him to get me some info on the job, and I'll think it over. The next day he calls me, says drop off an application friday. Friday afternoon the very nice lady from HR calls me, sets up an interview for that folllowing monday after work. I go in, meet with her, and my boss's boss. We discuss what the job requires, and I agree it sounds good. I get a phone call today telling me I got the job. Starts at a pretty good salary, about $10,000 more then I make now, with raises and a good future at the company. I tell them I'll take it. About 4 hours later, my new boss calls me, says were ordering uniforms for you, I need your size..Haha wow:eek:

    I gave my 2 weeks today at the current job, I'm going to miss a few of the people there:(

    I feel so good right now:D, thanks for listening.

    If I didnt have to cross a main highway, I would walk to work. I think I'm going to dig out my motorcycle and ride it more often. I start April 2nd.
