I thought I had a steady job with a large corporation...

It turns out that you have to pretty much bribe people for a job at this company is the real model.

For the love of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, do not buy anything from PPG!  They are asshats!

Man, that made me laugh. It's like you just wrapped up an episode of Seinfeld.

I think you've just got to look under every rock, etc.  Jobs are everywhere just not always in the places we expect them.  Large corporations are great for certain aspects that impact quality of life, health benefits, decent policies, etc, but don't neglect searching for the odd ones that may have a better work/life balance for you.  Hang in there!  Nice to see you GoB!

Update...

I got a job shortly after being thrown under the bus.  I applied for a job with a taxi company in town, and there were quite a few people remembered me from my earlier stint driving in this town.  The upshot?  Less than three months with the company I was promoted to night shift supervisor.  PPG can suck it!  I'm knocking down enough per week to justify going to work, and I get to blast Rush on the cab I drive!

The downside?  I have to buy insurance on The Exchange.  Texas blows syphillitic goats as far as companies that do business here.  I can get covered for peanuts, but I have to change PCPs.  Blue Cross  Blue Shield is the necrotic sore on the anus of a bloated worm.

You've got a glorious way with words. Glad to read you're gainfully employed and you get to blast Rush or whatever else you want.  :2  thumbs up:


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Good to hear about the job.  I have a lot of people who work as independent consultants around here who are forced on the exchanges and are mostly unhappy.  The high deductible plans are probably the best, if you can be disciplined to put some money into your HSA account.  Lowest cost for both healthy and sick people, just takes a little planning.
