TOPIC: Grand news!

Grand news! 11 years 5 months ago #1

Mom came home Monday. She be outta that place of the sick. Now we just gotta hope she takes it easy and doesn't end up back there anytime soon. <br /><br /> :wav:<br /><br />More good news, I was just offered a new position in the company. I'll be moving to a different plant, and I'll have to take a very minor pay cut, but it's 8 hour days instead of 12, climate controlled and clean, a hundred times less things that can go wrong and kill me, and most importantly no more swing shift. I'll get to go to bed at the same time every day, all the time. No more flopping my am and pm randomly...no more 10, 12, or 16 day in a row stretches....<br /><br />My boss has been spending a lot of time this past weekend trying to talk me out of taking the offer because I'm the top trainer with one of the best safety and performance records there. I almost feel bad...nah, not really<br /><br />What a roller coaster the last few weeks has been. I'm gonna go enjoy my night off with grilling brats, drinking rum, and sitting outside with a good book by a fire. Possibly at the nearby beach....<br /><br />Until later, Game On!

That's great!  They must really like you to have offered you two new jobs in such a short period of time.  What's the new job you're taking?  Congrats on your mom being out of the hospital.  I know that must give you peace of mind.<br /><br />Kim

That's great to hear, Shaman!<br /><br />Good on ya for taking the new job, too, despite the pay cut. The value of shorter shifts, comfortable work environment, and better health, can't be measured on a pay scale.
