I've Been Waiting For This

I put in my 2-week notice at work last night!


In 2 weeks I'll be free!

I imagine saying goodbye to the ladies I take care of will be harder than I expect it to be but I'll manage.

I told one of my bosses this morning that I was leaving. She asked why and I said in a word, "L-----" ( our director who has been difficult to say the least). She said, 'Oh well yeah, that explains it.

There are lots of other reasons too ....

  • I'm really, really, really tired of the crap the company (L_____) dishes out.
  • I have my Jeep paid off now so I don't have to work
  • I'm really busy with my work at church and this will free me up more to do that.
  • I'm getting tired of working 3rd shift. It will be nice to have a normal schedule again
  • I rarely get to do anything with friends on the weekend because that's when I work. I've missed weddings, funerals, reunions, and countless parties because I'm always working.

Yeah, it's time to quit.

Great, now you can go to some concerts at Joe's Java and stuff. The suppressed factory redneck guy in me is hearing Johnny Paycheck.


Is that the band It's A Beautiful Day
or a song named Beautiful Day?

Tim - Johnny Paycheck eh? I just heard a story about him yesterday. When he served time in prision in Ohio Waylon and Willie went to visit him. Apparantly after a bit the guard smelled something and looked over to see Willie, Waylon and Johnny passing around a joint.

I'll give you three guesses as to your question for Barbara.
