    Congratulations! Always good to get away from a place that "no longer does it for you".

    Now that's a good way to avoid the morning after.

    Thanks everyone. I won't get into the details but I ended up filing a complaint with the Dept of Labor because they were not paying the employees overtime which wouldn't have that bad when they started insisting I work Saturdays without overtime was going too far.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

    One of the things I am excited about is that since am not going to have my truck full of work supplies I will be about to load up with my camping stuff and leave town right after work.

    Listen, you have to do what you have to do to take care of self (hug).

    Back in the olden days, I didn't file a complaint with EEOC because I worried it would follow me through the industry; still wonder what would have happened 30 odd years later.
