YESSU, or, Cats tend to land on their feet

Now it can be told, as I have positive confirmation: for the first time since January, I now have a job. I’ll be working for ESI as a driver person, where my duties will include delivering various makes and models of vehicles from our warehouse to people, in order for them to review them, eat them, what have you, as well as driving vehicles round to put mileage on them. I’ll be starting this in early September, and I’ve really no idea what the pay will be, but the job seems like something I can get into — there’s no cube farm, there’s very little forced interaction with coworkers, and it’s quite frankly better than being on the dole. O wait — my dole cheques ran out two weeks ago! So obviously, the timing is perfect.
Plus, not only do I already know someone there — Dave, Derek & Steph’s roommate — but Steph was the one who got me the job in the first place. Steph, when the hell’s your birthday?

Woo and yay!

    A task I’ve performed verbally already, but now I do so in typing.
    Congratulations on your recent gainful employment. May you forever drive with your turn signal on.

    Driving? You hate people on the road.

    Good luck and congratulations. I’ll knit you a lovely scarf for the winter, and maybe a tote to hide your gun in.

    Pfft. Who told you that I hate people on the road? I hate people everywhere. At least in a car I don’t have to hear them, however.

    Thanx for the congratulations, everyone!

    Great news, DC 😀

    That’s my ideal job, too. As little involvement with others as possible, thus mimizing the chances of them fucking up YOUR job.
    Independance in a job is cool, if you can handle it. I used to really enjoy being courier between three courthouses spread out over a whole county… took all day, and all I had to do was drop stuff off 😀 The total responsibility was all mine, and I loved it. Was good too 🙂

    Good luck, and be careful out on the road. People drive stupid these days.
    But you knew that already LOL…

    Such a stereotyp-Detroit job!

    Driving vehicles for the purpose of ‘putting mileage on them’… sounds rather like: sleeping on a mattress in order to compress the padding; shouting to hear…yeah!; or, maybe, reading books to break in the binding?

    None the less, a paycheck permits us the privelage of the echoes, and for that I am always be-chuckled and grateful.

    Cong Rats.

    Whatever you do, don’t leave one of your KILLER-DEATHMETAL-NOISE-SCREETCHINGVAGINAS-WITH-THE-VOLUME-ON-ELEVEN CD’s in there…the reporters HATE that.

    Veach –
    Thankyou very much! Yeah, it’s definitely a stereotypical Detroit job, but it’s one of those ‘behind the scenes’ type of jobs, which suits me just fine.
    ‘Drive this Crossfire over to Metro Airport!’
    Etc. 🙂

    KQ –
    Dave said there’s a possibility that we might not be allowed to bring/use Cds, in case of that very scenario. In which case, I’ll break out that .mp3 player I got from you. HOORAY!
    Which means I have to burn my Cds. BOOOO!
    Dave did, however, mention that some of the cars have satellite radio, and as long as there’s at least one 80s/New wave station, it’s all good..

    Sirius has “Left of Center”, as well. Quite choice!
