I really wish someone would make up their mind where I work concerning what schedule I'm working. My schedule is changing yet again...
I had no sooner fallen asleep yesterday morning when I'm awaken by pounding on my front door. It's my supervisor, and he has news for me. He taking me off the three 12-hour and one 6-hour shift a week, starting Monday. I'm really relieved about this because I was getting sick of the 12-hour shifts anyway. This also means I'll have to start back working weekends... WTF.
Anyway, he told me the reason is that they had to let Barney go... Really? Go figure. I'll find out exactly why later and let you all know.
So now I'm off until Monday here on my regular schedule, but I have to pick up a few shifts down at that coal mine in Raven, VA Saturday and Sunday.
We all have crosses we must bear.
Another thing. I didn't write about it at the time and have been keeping this information sort of a secret as not to jinx it. Back in December I took the civil service test for a State job on the railroad. Since it's a state job, and since civil service hiring practices move slightly faster than a three toed sloth, I've just gotten word I'm on the top of a the short list for the position. This job will either be in Greenbrier or Pocahontas counties, and if I get the job I'll have to move because it would be too far to commute every day. Being a state job, the pay would be almost triple what I'm getting paid now, full bennies and retirement.
I'll let you know more later when I get more info myself!
