I want to know who left the refrigerator door open? Its been freezing lately. Work is steady and I was told by other place to come by as soon as this job ends to talk to them. All's well so far!!

Update on my life...

Okay, some changes still going on here.
1.) My current job is now still available till at least May. I am staying with it till they shut the doors so that I can get my three week's vacation pay as severance.
2.) I am not taking the new job. I am calling them on Tuesday to explain the unlaying off I am being and would hope they'll let me re-apply when the doors do shut.
3.) There is another job that may become available by the end of May so that option is sort of open.

I've been called stupid for staying where I am when the job isn't secure but I LOVE that job. Plus it's I'm loyal. A bad trait, I know but I am. I'm still going nuts over all of it but for now, I have a steady paycheck.

To Dona...THANK YOU!: )

I have a job!!!!! ( I think)

I went to a Job Fair today in Waco. There is a new call center opening in McGregor for a company called Convergys. I've never had the opportunity to do call center work and thankfully they train you. The pay is much better than what I was getting and as long as I pass the background check and piss test, all's a go. I'll report to training on Jan. 28th. Ironically, that is the same day I started working for the original company I am at now. Only five years later. Strange, eh? I think my last day at my company is the 18th. I'll have to go two weeks without a check but hoping income tax check comes in and that will tide me over. The next time you call AT&T, it just might be me on the other end of the phone!!! : )

Not so good news...

Well, it happened. The one thing I kept hoping that wouldn't. I have about two more weeks with my job then they are closing the place down. I'll be out there job hunting and I also found out that unemployment takes up to three or four weeks before the checks kick in. How do you pay your bills? I have to work until the last possible day to qualify for getting laid off. Life is not fun right now. Although, my new computers are kind of fun. Ha!
