    There is nothing wrong with calling them after a set time. Shows enthusiasm and a good job recruiter will appreciate it.
    "Just calling to say thank you for your time and consideration for the X position and to let you know I am excited to hear from you when you make your decision....." something along those lines.

    and :eek:. That would be cool.

    Yeah. I'm not super thrilled about the 1st two jobs though. One is a consulting firm which I hear is working 50-60 hour weeks while being salaried for 40 hours... and the other is an internship rather than an actual job...

    Twin would be ideal because Candice wants to move back that way so she can keep her cattle.

    I'd skip the first one, but an internship can pay off with the right company. I hope you find a way to make one of them work.

    Yeah. It's with Simplot so it should be a good company. The problem is that it doesn't guarantee a job at that plant. It could land me a job in another state... and it's only a summer internship... Could end up not resulting in a job at all...

    If the deadline for the internship comes and nothing else presents itself, you may have to spin that wheel. I have siblings that were hired out of school under similar circumstances. Even if it doesn't develop into a job you accept, it can be a very good reference in your field. Not sure of your background, but that may help get you a job you want.

    Electrical Engineering.

    Yeah I realize it will at least be some experience I can add to my resume and look better in the future, which will be nice. I'll just have to give it some more time and see how it plays out I guess. haha

    Me? No. haha I'm going to run my front ones into the ground before I put the new ones on.

    Jerez already PM'd me and I replied back. But it was knocking like a son of a bitch if I was touching the throttle at all. Driving straight, turning, whatever, unless the truck was decelerating, it was knocking even just trying to maintain speed. If you were accelerating the knocking got slightly louder.

    Umm so....today? I feel like they might be now.
    It was like a midget harnessed to the underside of his truck was pounding the floorboard with a big fucking midget hammer.

    Speaking of, seems like the oil is close to being replaced.

    I put 500 miles on it and changed it once already. I put another 500 miles on it and did the full towing break in for another 60 miles and probably have another 300 miles on it since then. I just haven't got around to putting the good stuff in there yet. haha


    And Pssshhhh!! My front tires are fine ;)
